The shoes you choose are important. Even when you cannot see them, they are important. They tie your outfit together by unifying the different elements or they can add ironic punctuation by introducing a disparate element to your look. They express the mood of your outfit without saying a word. The Pickford heels from Ingenue say a lot. They are classic, restrained and yet have some exquisite details such as the way the strap splits into two and the tiny, neat bow. In most views of my outfit today, you cannot even see them, but I know they are there and that is all that matters.
Today I am wearing a gorgeous formal gown from Liziaah, an amazing designer who migrated to SL from IMVU and who I predict you will hear more of as more and more people become familiar with her designs. This is a lush formal gown with minimal fuss in the structure and maximal attention to details in the print – a gorgeous of flowers and lace that would have made Marie Antoinette giddy with delight.
The skirt falls gracefully with a restrained flare at the bottom. I love the texture details at the bottom, not just the floral flourishes, but the folds in the fabric really win me over.
This photo best illustrates how beautifully the hem of the skirt has been done. The dress comes with a gold belt, but I prefer it without the belt.
I completed my look with Donna Flora jewelry – a place where you can find something for anything. The Truth undo has a perfect blend of formality and dishevelment and the Clef de Peau skin is delightful. Photos were taken at Scheherazade.
