To be honest, this lovely polka dot dress is clearly a modern interpretation of the familiar vintage full skirt and not authentically vintage. Available at the Nouveau Miranda store, it’s made by Wicked Loudon – the new identity of one of the former FOAM creators who is now an adult and back in Second Life®.
One look at the umbrella curving shape of the gores that make up the full skirt makes the dresses modernity evident. However, the fitted waist, the fullness of the skirt, the draped collar and the polka-dot fabric all pay homage to the fashions of half a century ago.
That led me to choose pumps with a rounded toe – from Armidi – and jewelry that also recalls that era and it’s love affair with bakelite and fantasy.
The entire collection – hat, necklace, earrings and bangles is from Dark Mouse – the Midsummer Amusements set. It has a strong vintage feel and a bold declaration that it’s on the side of whimsy and joy – something it shares with the adorable polka dot dress. The hair was chosen because it worked so well with the hat – from Vignette, it’s an old-fashioned Gibson.
The skin is the playful and fresh Alyson from Belleza.
