The Deeper the Blue

The Deeper the Blue

The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural… The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white. ~ Wassily Kandinsky

The Deeper the Blue

Mami Jewell has just come out with a bridal dress that should catch your attention. As always, Mami applies her beautiful texture work with laces, embossing and sheer elements to an elegant dress. It’s the skillful combination of proportions in the textures from the sheen of the textured bodice to the sheerness of the skirt and ruffled sleeves to the carefully placed roses with the mixture of mesh with flexi with prim, that distinguishes Mami’s work from other ballgown makers. Mami includes a veil, bouquet variations and other pieces with this outfit but I am simply satisfied in wearing it as a beautiful gown. I added dangly earrings from Zib Scaggs from On9—the dress really doesn’t need much more accessorization.

The Deeper the Blue

Gosh I love this new updo from Kavar Cleanslate. It’s a new look on the grid—straight hair pulled up in a messy French twist—and so prevalent in RL looks. With his fantastic textures, I predict this one will be a big seller at Collabor88 and one you will see on lots of ladies. My skin too, the newest from Shyla Diggs, is a classic look from one of the best skin artists on the grid. I have added a touch of gloss and blush to the skin but the eye makeups, the brows, the features are all subtle, nuanced and gorgeous. When I put one of Shyla’s skins on, I feel myself and I feel beautiful.

It’s that time of year ago! Yes indeed! The KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is out and I have the pleasure of showing you all the amazing content they will be giving as a gift EVERY SINGLE DAY until Christmas. The final gift will be, of course, a special holiday KittyCat. (The gorgeous front of the calendar was made by my partner, Callie Cline, who doesn’t know this, but she will be designing all my holiday cards in the future!)

The rules of the calendar are as follows: one gift per avatar. One gift per day but you can gather gifts from previous days if the door has been opened. Calendars will be available at the KittyCatS Wonderland, the main store for KittyCatS AND this year, at the stores of the contributing designers!

And who are this year’s designers? I am guessing you will be as stoked as I am when you see. (Just add “OMG OMG OMG” after each name as I did when I saw the final line-up):

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The first gift is a beautiful jewelry set from Belle Roussel, made specifically for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. The “Hearts of Hope” set includes a necklace, charm bracelet and earrings. What you can’t see in my static photo is that each gem has an animated texture so the diamonds appear to catch the light without having to include bling or have materials shown and is very representative of Belle’s beautiful work. The set is bold and rich-looking and festive ornamentation for any dress-up you want to do this holiday season.

I show it with an elegant sheath from Zib Scaggs that I have had in my inventory forever, waiting for the perfect look, and this was it. With new shoes from BabyChampagne Sass, which I was able to adjust to fit my Belleza Venus body feet, and Shyla Diggs’ new skin for Uber, it’s a dressy look for the holidays. My simple décor is a wire tree from Sway Dench that comes as a wall hanging or floor model, with or without little photo frames and with a great texture change script that allows gold or silver or a combo, also available at Uber.
