I received a promotional copy of this adorable micro-mini from BOOM! this weekend and I loved the little buttons and the adorable belt so much that I had to blog it even though there’s no way I would wear a skirt that short in this life or real life. From the front, you don’t get to appreciate how dangerously short it is – but hey, that’s what tights are for!!
So there I was, innocently reading this book and along comes a line that said “His world had become beige, passionless and flat.” As a beige-lover I was outraged. There’s so many things wrong with that sentence it’s hard to know where to start, but first lets dispense with the idea that beige is flat.

Nothing makes me feel more feminine that some vintage clothing and no one makes better vintage than Ivalde. The clothes are lovely and if you join her group, you will realize what a sweet person she is, too, with her weekly notes and updates.
I want, however, to focus on the jewelry for a moment because this is a jeweler whose fabulous offerings may be missed simply because the majority of her work won’t appeal to non-role-playing residents. Her store is on a Viking sim and the majority of her work is slave jewelry, but if you go from your landing point to the farthest right corner of the store, you will find some amazing contemporary designs such as this necklace. Yes, it’s only a small fraction of her stock, but it’s well worth bookmarking her and hoping she makes some more everyday jewelry in the future.
