I always like to bust up sets and mix and match because it shows that the clothing people make in Second Life is more versatile than we think. For that reason, even though the Irina cropped sweater I am wearing from The Secret Store comes with a beautiful skirt that coordinates with it, I chose to wear a different skirt to show it can be done. Of course, you know and I know it can be done, but a reminder is useful.
And likewise, this gorgeous pleated skirt from ISON was released with a coordinating top with gorgeous embroider on the shoulders. I love these knife pleats. Every time I see them, I am reminded of this amazing fabric store I went to in Algeciras. I have been to larger ones since, but this one had the feeling of centuries of tradition. The building was incredibly old and there were shelves that went up nearly to the ceiling which was at least twenty feet high and rolling ladders to climb to reach the fabrics. Even the cash register must have been from the 19th century, covered with ornate leaves and flowers. It was a dark, poorly lit store and each fabric we looked at was brought to the windows at the front to really see the colors. I had never seen such rich and luxurious fabrics as in that store. It was quite magical.
Fri.day released some platform wedges, a modern nod to fairy tale shoes with laces. I loved this acid green, so contra-folkloric, a subversive color for this theme. Or maybe it’s not subversive at all but the color of a poisoned apple?
Exile released this hair called First Dance and it is perfect for any fairy tale.
I am wearing the Susan skin from Glam Affair again. I really like its simplicity, a perfect palette for the new makeup appliers that Glam Affair released at the Lelutka Main Store.
