Photo of Elate! new release dress dance happening by Nivaya Barbosa
There I was all ready to write about something completely different when I got a notice from the SL Free*Style group. Free cute little hat! said the notice, and I finished photographing for this post and hopped right over, because I'm a complete hat...maven. What should I encounter but a bunch of women shaking their tail-feathers in the cutest flapper dresses this side of Calvin Coolidge's White House? One of those women is a pal of mine, Nivaya Barbosa, and she introduced me to Kellie Iwish, the designer for Elate. The dress looks adorable on all sorts of shapes, and moves perfectly.
Soon I too was dancing. I love the excitement that designers feel when they release something they've poured over, and hand it over to people to enjoy. There's a thrill, I'd imagine, in seeing your creativity adorn other people, and that rush must be what designers live for.
Here I am in Elate's Felicity dress in white and her freebie tophat
Anyway. Here is my original post, about two vivid things: MiaSnow's new skin, BLU BEAUTY, and Juicy's new slingback pumps. Gorgeous said, "Are you sure these are your kind of thing? They're a little bright." They totally are -- I simply had to wait for something just as vivid to wear with them. When Ashia Tomsen posted about Rapis, I went -- yatta! Affordable and adorable! And look, a cute bag too, only 20L!
The skin is as perfectly shaded as the rest of MiaSnow's skins, which means that it's a Srs blue skin, not "I think I'll slap blue on this PDF." ...So I think I'll be blue for a while...
