There has been a Donna Flora shortage on the grid this year while the store’s designer/creator Squinternet Larnia has been going through cancer treatment and working on rebuilding her strength, but Vintage Fair has inspired her to come back with a bang – releasing three mesh dresses in several options. This dress is Elena and it comes in eight different colors/textures.
One of the great things about Donna Flora’s designs is that she doesn’t just recolor, she retextures with different prints, creating different moods.
I decided to wear Gos’ Pimp My Pumps court shoes with the dress. Seriously, the Pimp My Pumps collection is an entire shoe wardrobe. I shot the pictures at Terra d’Ombra on the Solaria sim. It’s a lovely old Italian village with a very dolce vita vibe. Because this is vintage wear for Vintage Fair, I added a vintage touch to the photos using the Photoygraphy folder from Filter Forge. You can see the originals on in the set on Flickr.
I chose jewelry from HandVerk. These tasseled earrings and necklace are available at feMESHed for the month of August. They come in several shades including a cyan colored set that matched the dress beautifully, but I thought this contrast was more interesting.
Also for Vintage Fair, Adam n Eve released this gorgeous Vintage Hollywood skin that makes me think of Elizabeth Taylor. The hair is from Vanity Fair and is brilliantly named The Hamptons.
