Modern Romance



I can never resist a beautiful feminine and romantic ball gown. I found this one at AVENUE Fashion Week. I missed the show, but saw this in the Retail Gallery. One of the joys of Second Life® is having a closet full of ball gowns. I love how this gown from Arikea combines the soft colors and floral patterns of traditional romantic gowns, but with a thoroughly modern eye. The floral patter is abstract and made even more so by being so very large. The colors are soft and pastel, but not your granny’s pastels – not with that brown.



The gown itself is a traditional shape ball gown shape with a fitted bodice, sweetheart neckline and a full skirt full of drama. The modern edge is totally fabric and color choice. I wanted to emphasize the modern color palette and tinted my white cloves just a slightly darker shade of brown that I pulled from the skirt.




Ariskea made shoes that are a perfect companion to the gown. These shoes come in three colors as does the gown. apr11_004


I added jewelry from Donna Flora and and an updo from Exile called Part of Me. I love the loft on this undo.



I chose the new PXL skin for Collabor88 called Jade. I love the dramatic makeup.
