The Perfect Red

"All my life I've pursued the perfect red." —Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland once said she spent her entire life in search of the perfect red. She should have started at Sascha’s Designs where Sascha Fragelli has captured the perfect red in her Lush Red Dress for The Instruments from February 11th through the 25th. The dress comes with its own jewelry, heart-shaped hat and white boa, but I decided to go in another direction with Lelutka’s bolero in purple (it was a Christmas group gift). Something about red and purple is so lush and wild.

The dress is all kinds of glorious is a slinky, shiny silk charmeuse that goes very high up the thigh on one side and swoops down low on the other. This made it a bit difficult to work with the mesh body and only works with Maitreya that lets you show the outer and hide the inner leg. I had to wear a size large or my panties would break through; it seems a bit smaller than a standard size large. Of course, it works on the default avatar which is what it is made for.

It reminds me of the lyrics from that old Jazz Age song, “Don’t You Feel My Leg

Oh, don’t you feel my leg, don’t you feel my leg
‘Cos if you feel my leg, you’ll want to feel my thigh
Don’t you feel my thigh, you’ll wanna move up high

The Donna Flora Ravesc Jewelry really captures the idea I was going for with this outfit. Bold and uncompromising colors and shapes. The manicure is from ZOZ.

Slink’s Hera heels have the same rippling wave of high to low, echoing the dress in form and aesthetic. Its bold red doesn’t hurt either.

Equally bold, the Donna Flora Ravesc necklace, earrings and ring and Couture Chapeau’s Recon hat.

Glam Affair’s Clara skin applicator for the Lelutka Mesh head has the perfect red lipstick. I spy with my little eye.
