Second Date

Fleur recently released the Second Date dress.  I love this dress — it’s very much like something I’d wear in RL.  The above-the-knee hemline is playful and fresh for summer, and balances out the plunging neckline quite nicely.  A wide black sash accentuates the waist, complimenting the hourglass female figure.  It’s Roslin Petion’s first solo endeavor as a clothing designer, and wow!  it’s very skillfully done; I never would have guessed.  The shading is delicate and subtle, with no visible seams. 

I’m also wearing a Fleur skin, the Strawberry Parfait 2.  It has a distinctly hand-drawn feel, with a youthful, fresh innocent face.  The lips are full and pouty, and the hand-drawn freckles are playful.  Fleur skins are currently 50% off, but I don’t know how long the sale will last, so hurry, hurry, hurry!

IDK

 

idk is a new store, a collaboration between veteran designers Esme Michigan of Uncle Wiggly and Chav Paderborn of Steamstress.  They describe the general aesthetic of their clothing as “kind of scene style like ish.”  Now, neither me nor my av is particularly “scene,” but many of the offerings are versatile, and suit a variety of looks.

I love love love the Drape Tops.  They’re a bit of a cross between a graphic tee and a dressier blouse.  The drapery around the neckline is very flattering, and the wrinkles on the midsection and shoulders lend a comfy feeling to the shirt.  The graphics are simple, elegant, and not overdone.

In the top pic, I’m wearing the idk Bubble Skirt.  The charcoal and black stripes are deliciously moody, while the shape of the skirt is playful and fun. The combination of those qualities make the skirt delightfully quirky and wearable.

Also worn is Tiny Bird hair.  I’ve been really digging on all the hairstyles Tiny Bird has been releasing, and the name coordinates nicely with the graphics on the shirts. There are sleeker, more polished styles at Tiny Bird, but my favorites are the hairstyles that are very RL-wearable: a bit messy, with wavy bits flying out, but totally chic.

Other things I’m wearing: my two favorite tattoos, from Tramp Stamp and Aitui.  Skin from Imagen, with great freckles and makeups that coordinate with the outfits.  Miriel eyes — get them now; the store is closing soon.  Jewelry from VG Republic (currently closed) and Dark Mouse.  Dark Mouse has the best everyday costume jewelry, and I wear their stuff all the time.  Stockings from Sheer — love ‘em.  One of my own skirts, the Dovely Linen Skirt from Vanitas Vesture.  Shoes from Detour and GL Designs.  The ruching on the Detour London Flats adds just the right amount of detail, and the GL Designs wedges are color-change; gotta love color-change.  Finally, poses from one of the masters, Reel Expression.
