Chocolate Covered Secrets

Life is sweet at Cafe Gourmand.

Gidge and I were hanging out at Crimson Rezzable the other night. We had popped over to check out the Lucky Chair and noticed there was a flag hunt going on – continues through Sunday – and then just chatting while waiting for things to rez. All of a sudden I spied with my little eye this dress from lurvebite that had me squeeing with glee. It looks like Chocolate Covered Cherries. I nearly danced the dress please me so. Clearly I had to get it. Then I thought it would be fun to shoot it with some of the luscious pastries from Cafe Gourmand, our friend Cezare Blanco’s new store. I  tp’ed him over to the blogging headquarters to rez me some pastries.  He arranged them artfully and even included the magnificent cake he made for for Polaire and his wedding. After shooting this snap I had to log off to eat.

This dress from lurvebite is a candy lover’s dream and the skirt is full of chocolate covered secrets. Hidden in the sculptie folds are bits of cake and cookies. I added Stiletto Moody shoes – the chocolate flavor.

The dress demands more whimsy than usual so I browsed my small collection of Vanity Affair hair and selected this one that I thought beautifully repeated the lines and forms of the ribbons wrapping the bodice. The bigger silhouette also makes a perfect counterpoint to the poufs of chocolately goodness that masquerades as a skirt.

That sort of reaching into the world of the fantastical had me reaching for my Dahlia skin from MiaSnow.  The big doe eyes and beestung lips are just ideal for outfits that go there.  And isn’t is fun that the Fleur prim nails are the Reverse Strawberry color?

I had so much fun styling and shooting this dress that I snapped several pictures – too many to show here. To see some more, you can check the Flickr set.
