In the Forest

I love the Forrest [sic] Nest dress from Boudoir for many reasons – in particular the lush forest  green color and the intricate cutwork lace in the bodice. My mother taught me this lace making technique and I could spend three months making insets for the upper front bodice. Of course, it could be machine made, but it has the look of hand made lace. With it I am wearing the glorious Whiskey & Wheatgrass necklace and earrings from Balderdash.

The dress is sprinkled with paillettes that glow like fairy dust in the forest and the full underskirt is made of that same extravagant lace.

As you can see, even the back of the dress is embellished with the lace. The poses, by the way, are from Del May and Estetica – two of the many posemakers at the Pose Fair. The pictures are shot in the PhotoGraphique Photo Studio that I found at the Pose Fair. It is a touch-change simple studio that lets you add your own textures. I did a search on Constable to find a nice old painting that would make a great background.

The hair is from [kik] a relatively new-to-me hair salon with fun styles – particularly excellent short styles. The lovely skin and makeup is from 5th & Oxford – the Brooke line of skins that have a particularly soft and gentle face.
