It’s raining out today—a sweet rainy fall day with periods of clarity. The flowers outside are releasing their last burst of bloom. I saw a hummingbird hovering not 3 feet from me, dipping his beak into my impatiens (yeah, explain that—guess he was desperate).
So today I am cheerfully celebrating beauty with the work of Iki Ikarus. She sent out two skins for her group, and I was hooked. I ran over a few days later and got this gem and one of her cute dresses. With its well-groomed eyebrows, expressive lips, and finely contoured face, this skin is well-drawn and lacks that over-dodged highlighting I see on too many skins nowadays.
Then I got into the whole purple/pink theme and topped this ensemble with this messy hair from Foam! It’s raining, ya know? Add in a whimsical blossom necklace from Ginza Kohime and a sweet umbrella from Michelle Rail, and we’re done up top.
I have to admit, the whole rain thing came to me because I have been dying to show these boots for a while. The RetroStars from Coke Dreadlow (who also makes some killer high-tops) are the boots I have wanted since I was a little girl. Tuck these cute socks from sato yifu in and we’re set!
