I took a peek around at some of the builds rising up around where we are working on It’s Only Fashion’s SL9B exhibit and am so impressed. A favorite among my neighbors is a beautiful woodland scene. I don’t know if it’s finished since it’s pure scenery now, but it’s so lovely. If even one-fourth of the exhibits are this beautiful, you would be well-advised to visit SL9B and explore. For my exploration I put together a top from E! and a skirt from Tee*fy. The top has delicious eyelet detailing that gives it a romantic femininity. The skater skirt from Tee*fy is a lovely romantic floral, though the skirt is also made in many other prints – including some very mod prints.
Notice that the skirt is lined on the inside. If it were left alpha as many mesh skirts are, I could not have shot this picture – and I really wanted to capture the feeling of this place.
The K.I.A. shoes from Lelutka strike just the right summer casual note. I wanted to mention the poses. All the poses in this post are from Dove Swanson’s Long Awkward Pose, the wittiest named pose store in all of Second Life. Long Awkward Pose will be closing this month as Dove moves forward with exciting developments in her first life. Until the closing, her poses are on sale at a huge 50% discount. When I first started Second Life, Dove Swanson and Luth Brodie of Reel Expressions were the two posemakers that received most of my lindens. I visited their stores regularly, buying all their new releases and I have hundreds of their poses. Luth stopped making new poses over a year ago and now with Dove closing her shop, it feels like the end of an era. I am sad to see her close, because she brought such wit and fun to her poses. Posing is both art and science and she mastered them both – giving us artful poses that didn’t break the mesh. As sad as it is to lose her store, I am very excited by all the positive developments in her first life.
The jewelry I am wearing is from Twinkleberry. It’s been ages since I visited the shop and I had to pop over just to make sure it was still open. It is and there’s lots of fun new releases even though this is an old set that I have not worn for a while. The hair is from Wasabi Pills with sweet french braiding in front.
The skin is PXL Creations’ Kate – a favorite of mine.
