Although my favorite color is green, I don’t always choose the green colored dress since some greens can be tricky to style, but peachy coral colored dresses are irresistible for me. You cannot go wrong. Peach is such a feminine and soft color that always makes me feel good and look good. This lovely dress is a perfect complement to the peaches and cream complexion of PXL Creations Pale Candy skin tone that was released today.
With the release of Pale, all of the Candy skin tones (Tan, Light Tan, Sunkissed, Natural and Pale) have finally been released. The Pale tone is a delicate porcelain – fairest of the fair. The particular option I am wearing is with natural eyes and lips – as bare as it comes and it’s still a beautifully delicate skin.
I cannot resist hair named after a real life hero – and most particularly I cannot resist hair named after a real life hero that is as gorgeous as this. I put it together with a practical outfit that the real Dorothy Day would have felt comfortable wearing. She may have been a reformer, an activist, a world-changer, but she also was a beautiful woman. The foundation for this look is the perfectly lovely and stunningly executed Anoorea skirt from MichaMi. I dithered over what jacket to wear, and chose the one from TOSL for it’s chunky, handknit homemade look. That had me looking for a lilac shirt and this one from Zaara was made to order.
Last Saturday, I saw Uma’s marvelous post with the My Admiral Jacket from Milk Motion. She is one of my favorite bloggers and someone whose originality and fashion wit brings real joy and elan to the feed. I have never met her, but certainly get the impression that she is what we call “nice people” in my neck of woods as her blog is always positive and a delight. When I saw that jacket I knew I had to have it and seriously, it was a struggle to take it off. In fact, I wore it in two outfits back to back.
Hoping all of you who celebrate Passover or Easter have a wonderful holiday with family, friends and fellowship. In celebration, I thought I might dress like an easter egg. 🙂 Actually, this is TOSL’s wonderful High Tea dress perfect for the garden party or other celebrations of spring and sunshine. Gidge would also be sending her good wishes but is on holiday.
Oh I do love the round buttons that trim this jacket from Zaara – a jacket I am sure you will see again and again as the truly well-made and flexible clothing items do get a lot of wear and air time. I decided to follow through on the theme of gold buttons – and chose the lovely necklace from Genesis that the green blouse from Zaara because of their gold buttons – but the piece that is the buttoniest of all is the pants from TOSL – the wonderful Sergeant Pepper pants. I have worn them before in another color – but this time I am grabbing the teal pants and yes, they work with that top.
May I introduce to you Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Pants?
It was twenty years ago today,
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They’ve been going in and out of style
But they’re guaranteed to raise a smile.
So may I introduce to you
The act you’ve known for all these years,
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Well, I suppose if I said something about this dress, then I could not say it’s too cute for words. So, instead of saying something about the dress, let me point out the adorably cute ring from flirt (a review item) – called onyx bloom which has a super color change script so you can make it go with anything even this dress that is too cute for words.
To be frank, the store Tree and Ocean of Second Life or TOSL is not the most happily named store in Second Life. The first I can never remember correctly and generally conflate into Tree of Second Life which means I cannot find it in search. The acronym always makes me think of those dread Terms of Service agreements. Luckily loving the store’s name is not a requirement for shopping there because there’s no doubt I love everything else about TOSL from the delightfully quirky store construction to the imaginative and colorful clothing and accessories including the shoes and top in this outfit.
I was able to mod my hair last night and move the single offending hair prim out of my cheek. YAY! It took 4 minutes and clicking the move Y- button twenty-two times. NOT SO YAY! And that was with everything going my way. I was lucky that i guessed y-minus right off the bat and didn’t spend any time clicking the other 5 options at all. And of course, if the prim had been behind another prim, i woul have spent 10-20 minutes moving one prim out of the way so I could click on the prim I need to move and then moving the prim in the way back to position. Actually, no I wouldn’t, I would have given up and deleted the hair. Honestly, edit scripts are a poor substitute for being able to edit hair. It’s time-consuming and frustrating. And Damselfly is one of my favorite hair stylists, dagnabbit.But on to more cheerful things like the gorgeous dress from TOSL that I have on. Continue reading →
