One of my favorite drinks is the mojito. I really got hooked on them when I went to Tampa for SLCC and sat at the bar with Lauren Weyland and Eshi Otawara and several others, enjoy the great drinks. Yum!
So this beautifully done dress from Tammany Goodliffe makes me think of a fruity refreshing mojito (though it’s less lime than orange). With its great tropical print and excellent construction (that’s a sculpty skirt there but you would hardly even think about it the way it is fitted to the avatar and the way it moves), it’s an antidote to “spring-is-too-damn-long-coming.” Tammany’s work is perfection from top to bottom.
I wore it to match the ethereal skin Gala Phoenix has recently released—May. Gala has combined photoreal features with artistically rendered elements to create a more mature, more refined skin for her customers. The lips are absolutely luscious this time—not overdone or oversized and her eyebrows are perfection.
I wear the set with one of AvaGardner Kungler’s beautiful jewelry sets. Ava makes jewelry go beyond the representative to the artistic in SL. I can really imagine these beads as an intricate couture piece for both the necklace and ring. This is part of a series she is completing based on nature; the next series will be about the ocean. I can’t wait!
Finally, my shoes are a warm weather showstopper from Sissy Pessoa. Available at the Shoe Fair, they have all the earmarks of a chic summertime shoe—straps lacing up the foot, a sexy, more casual wedge, and golden python, which seems to be Sissy’s specialty. These would be perfect at a club or bar ocean side, where mojitos can be leisurely sipped.
