I know why I love Squinternet Larnia. I love her because whenever I found a sim that was cool and I wanted to share it with someone, she dropped everything to come look. I love her because she was always ready to come dancing or exploring. I love her because she always asked how I was doing and wanted an honest answer, not a glib okay. I love her because she is funny, quirky and stubborn. I am really counting on that stubborn nature now.
But why do we love Donna Flora? I suppose it could be because she is a generous and charitable creator who was there with her support for every event and charity that asked. I suppose it could be longevity. It could be her skill, the ability to make things that look and fit well. However, I think it’s more to do with how her wild and creative designs speak to our hearts. Seriously, if you told me there was a dress with pink satin, black tulle covered with giant pink peonies and big, gold flowers, I would roll my eyes and laugh at the idea. But then, take a look at this dress. It is exactly that and should be a hot mess of kitsch and instead it a hot melange of romance and glamour. It is pure genius. And with genius, we have two choices, love it or hate it? And we love it.
This dress is old. I got it in 2009 and am not sure if it was new or old then. I bought it because it’s crazy, outrageous and romantic. I wore it to a wedding on Sunday. Is there a more perfect dress for a wedding guest? I stopped off at the Love Donna Flora event sim for some photos. If you have not been there yet, you should go soon. If you could not go because you won’t go without a lot of scripts, now that the initial heavy crowds have gone down the script limit has been lifted.
By the way, I have to point out these magnificent heels from SLink. There are tons of platforms and fancy shoes and all, but classic, elegant and sleek shoes like these are hard to find. These are wardrobe essentials!
The extravagant romance of the dress demanded a romantic updo and the Amacci Daphe updo is perfect. It has a hud allowing you to change the flowers’ textures to a range of colors and you can also wear it without the flowers. It is a 100% donation item at the Love Donna Flora event.
My skin is the newest from PXL Creations and will be available at Collabor88 on the 8th. It comes with two sets of eyebrows, the classic and the 1920s (which I am wearing) and two eyebrow shapers as well to give you that classic 1920s look that everyone who fell in love the The Great Gatsby may wish to give a try.
