Star-Spangled New Year

I am not sure if there will be a traditional Black & White Ball for New Year’s in Second Life this year – unless I can persuade Gidge to throw one with me  – but if there is, I know a perfect gown for it and it’s free. Saschi Vixen of Adam n Eve put out a marvelous gift gown for Christmas that really will rock any Black & White ball. I know New Year’s is pretty chilly though, so I added a shawl I snitched off a Donna Flora outfit called LoreDana for a little shoulder warmth.

This is one of those marvelous, walk into a ballroom, pause at the stop of the stairs while your name is announced, and gracefully descend as a buzz of admiration races round the room sort of gown.  Cinderella would wear this gown except on New Year’s midnight is when the party  really begins to rock, so she needs a pass from the fairy godmother to stay longer.

No matter how chilly it might be, the stole has to come off sooner or later so folks can appreciate the intricate delicacy of the bodice. The back of the dress is similarly complex and beautiful. Do you see those gloves? They are new releases from 5th & Oxford!! That means that the master glove maker of SL finally has gloves available you can buy again.  am wearing the lovely Dark Mouse Pearl Rose earrings and necklace released just this week. Does Mouse just know exactly what I need and when I need it? Is there some psychic connection to my closest? Inquiring minds want to know….

The lovely updo is from Truth. This closeup shows exactly how perfect the Dark Mouse earrings are. The skin is the always elegant July from PXL Creations.
