In My Jewelry Box

As you can imagine, my virtual jewelry box is a bit full, cluttered with baubles and bits and bobs of things I have accumulated over the years, including my own creations.

I was looking to adorn this cute new dress from Mavis McGettigan. She has piled on the great details: bows in the back tying up the halter top (which I found can be worn great on its own), a tiered skirt, and frankly, great white texturing (which is hard to do—pulling off white is quite a tough job). But because the dress is all white, I needed something pretty and special to wear.

So I dug out this beautiful artistic necklace and earrings made by ThomasD Felisimo. I hate to do this, but this is a one-of-a-kind necklace I won at an auction at last year’s Jewelry Fair, so you can’t get it—only I have it. The proceeds benefitted Oxfam, so cheers to ThomasD for donating his hard work and time and for letting my neck and ears wear such prettiness.

I am wearing skin from Kira Ahn, which is quite exquisite. Her skin blending is seamless, eyebrows are well defined and lovely, and lips are beautifully glossed. She is running quite a nice sale on older skins right now. You might catch this one or something else you like.

Finally, Morrigan Denimore passed over these shoes today. I don’t think he anticipated seeing them blogged this quickly and certainly not with an outfit like this (he tends towards goth and kimonos), but they were the perfect match to this ensemble.

Fur Chic

One of the things a girl always wants is a chic fur coat. In SL, it’s possible to have a fur that is chic and doesn’t hurt any animals (except pixel ones).

Fur Chic

This cute little bolero jacket from Mavis McGettigan was sitting in my inventory, waiting for a moment when I needed that touch of chic, and when I pulled it out today to go dancing to the blues at Hotlanta, it was just what I needed. The shape lends a weight to the top of my body that emphasizes the hourglass shape of my waist and makes the rest of me look sleek and sexy. The sculpty prims are used ingeniously so the arm can hinge and still look like it’s in a fur coat and the texture follows suit.

Fur Chic

I furthered the long with leggings from Milla Michinaga. With their slight sheen and well- defined wrinkles and pulls, they add to the illusion of lean. A sexy black corset from NovaStar Shilova covered the bare midriff from the jacket as the jacket alone would not have suited my purposes. Finally, I ended these with the boots from Enktan Gully and LeeZu Baxter that keep getting press here. I am finding more and more uses for them.

And check out Tuli Asturias’ newest skin, Eva, which was a group gift this month. This is a preview of the updated version. I can’t wait to see what she has coming down the line.
