Spring Fever

Spring Fever

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~ Mark Twain

Spring Fever

It’s certifiably spring and I have a bounce in my step and flight in my wings. Mami Jewell just came out with this gorgeous dress, made for the MVW 2nd Runner-Up, Issy Flatley. I had to try on the cover dress in Coral because it was just so lovely, especially the way Mami combined mesh and flexi pieces to create a beautiful ruffled confection of a dress with movement and curviness.

I took my shots at the Un Jour sim that Siestabril Nitely built. With little outposts of flowered islands, some set with posed props, I had some fun taking photos in this beautiful dress. I purchased a head piece from Siestabril to suit the environment and spent some time happily snapping away.

Of course, the core of my luminescent look comes from Stasey Oller’s gorgeous skin for the Skin Fair. I was always used to her very bold and glossy lipsticks at many events but she has turned that glossiness to a subtle beauty in this set of skins that are sexy and innocent at once with a lovely glow. Stasey offers a ton of appliers with a beautifully detailed body. And thank goodness Mina Nakamura is offering this updo with a essentials color set because the blond matched the skin perfectly and with its romantic tendrils, added the final touch.

Dress Up

One of the most appealing features of SL, of course, is the ability to dress up our avatars. This game of dress up is an entire dissertation in itself. Let’s just leave it at liking to put together pretty colors for today ;)

Dress Up

I got this little dress from youki Cioc’s eclectic store a while ago and have been trying to find a time and place to show it. I love the multiple layers of prims, the big blooming cabbage rose print, the lovely use of the shoulder pieces and armlets. I had been wearing Pixieplumb Flanagan’s new little sneakers and the color matched perfectly while the style was a tomboyish juxtaposition, so why not? A pair of lacey ankled socks from Naoki Ninetails just made the look complete.

Dress Up

When I put together outfits it’s always an odd process. I have to be inspired by something—a song, a quote, the start of look. This time it was the freckles I got from Launa Fauna. I had seen freckles on another avatar as a tattoo layer and I found them charming. This inexpensive tattoo layer really did the trick layered over Alexandra Barcelos’ new Kiona skin (which I am wearing twice in a row here, but isn’t it just perfect?). Then I popped on this ginger hair from Queue Marlowe (who is off to the Continent for a few weeks—I miss her already) and this darling hat from siestabrill Nitely. What a gorgeous face.
