Anessa Stine of DCNY is not your granny and this is not what she might cast off her hairpin lace loom, but she certainly has a granny’s old-fashioned attention to detail. If you want to know what I mean look at the prim flap on this dress. The much maligned and frequently cursed prim flap melds near seamlessly into the pattern of the lace – and continues to do so when you shift positions. Now that’s attention to detail. My one crafty hobby is lace-making and hairpin lace is one of the easiest there is to make. I lost interest in hairpin lace quite early because generally it was used for making scarves and shawls. Now, if I had thought to make something like this, I might have stuck with it longer though I am sure my mother would have vetoed such a racy, lacy dress.
I headed over to the Jersey Shore to shoot because I could imagine the Jerseylicious Olivia in this dress. The Jersey Shore is a fun, bright and cheery shopping sim with amusement rides and a candy store straight out of the last century.

Stripey heaven! A belt, some wine and thou and I was ready to go.

And as I hopped along the grid, this outfit came into shape, starting with the skirt and the cotton top, both from MNK.
Am I tickled pink? Well, yes, I am. MDR Photo Studio has moved to its own sim and is open for business at the new location on Amelia Isle, though we are changing the name to MDR. I have been scrambling this weekend to move all the equipment and get set up as much as possible. So…color me tickled…PINK.
And a tickled pink woman needs to wear PINK. Not just pink, but PINK! So…
Conference participants tend to take one of two distinct fashion paths when attending a conference – the hyper-casual or the dressed to kick ass and take names approach. Last night seemed the time for the latter, so I chose a vintage style dress and added a bolero because it was a bit chilly. I truly accentuated the positive in this outfit with the hat, though.
