I have been wearing this outfit in Second Life for over a month now…because I didn’t want to do my pixel laundry. Just kidding! Really though, I seriously have been wearing this Michami Lana Brocade Cocktail Dress for that long. I have wanted to blog this dress since it came out. I haven’t been in SL much in the past month, mainly due to illness, partially due to not feeling creative, and somewhat to do with not feeling like the photos I was trying to capture were doing these items any justice as to how pretty they are.
Starting with the dress…I think the structure is one of the best things about it. It offers a lovely modern contrast to more of an intricate, rich, vintage feel texture. It looks elegant and classy.
The heels were a more recent purchase. Gos turned up the heat in the mesh shoe realm with an entire new line of sexy, sassy, glamorous footwear with an amazing skin matching HUD. Trust me ladies, skin matching is easier than ever before with these beauties because it works in conjunction with a website that lists skins from SL’s most popular skin brands. Achieving the perfect foot color is as simple as selecting your skin from a list and syncing the HUD after you have chosen. You may then save your commonly used skin tones to the HUD. For any skins not listed in the website database, manual shade matching is still an option.
Please note, in the above photo there is something funky going on with the ankle shading right under where you can see the skin of the mesh meet my skin. While I have edited certain things in these pics (applied an action, added some lens blur, smoothed some sharp edges), I did not edit this glitch out in order to show the shoes clearly. I believe the shading in the photo may have occurred because I may have worn a pair of the heels that was a size too small, and I could not get the large ones to rez at the time of the photo and became impatient (my other ankle looks great). The larger pair does not have a noticeable line like this inworld for me.
So, I believe that the little line there is blogger error and the fact I was using a smaller size. Oopsies. Anyway, I so love the way these shoes look. Plus, I don’t have to fight with trying to match my skin tone!
