If the words Second Life and fashion have skittered within five miles of your brain, you know that Paper Couture has released their 2009 Spring Collection. Now, I would like to have that cool, detached above-it-all sangfroid that would allow these fashion events to pass by whilst I wait until the lagnormous crowds of shoppers have passed through, waiting calmly for the storm to pass so I can shop and blog in easy relaxation. However, the ista in fashionista demands a bit of sheer insanity which is what last night’s shopping frenzy was. Standing at a bloggers convention in Paper Couture, all of us paused, waiting for the clothes to rez. It’s such a delicious bit of silliness and still fun and exciting…and so worth it when the collection is a stunning as this on. I have not looked at everything yet, but of what I have seen, this is the best collection of theirs to date. And this dress, the Beaded Wildflowers just takes my breath away with its detail and quality.
Look at the texture on that skirt. It is one you have to see to believe. Seriously, as I moved and turned in the poses, the highlights and shadows moved so naturally and perfectly it was as though it were being redrawn. I was stunned and played around way too late seeing if I could “break” the skirt, but I didn’t. The shoes, by the way, should be familiar to my blog readers and seriously, as often as I use them, you should know what great investment shoes they are.
Now this bodice does come with a modesty undershirt layer and perhaps I should have worn that, but every once in awhile there is a dress that really deserves to be slightly immodest, just for the sheer beauty of the fabric. The jewelry is also Paper Couture – though not all from this season. The necklace is a perfect complement – with fabric covered beads that are similar, though not identical to the bodice fabric.
The makeup if Tuli’s new Faith, released this weekend. The hair is Peta from Lelutka – a simple formal style that suits the dress perfectly. You also can see a much closer shot of the lovely necklace.
