Dress Me Up 3: Ach by Kaylenie


Kaylenie Magic suggested this to me for the Dress Me Up Challenge: "I would try the new Dark Matter skins from [42], Outfit from Ova Hauled or SN@TCH (they also have shoes), And try Detour for hair."

I was quite happy to see the suggestion to wear Sn@tch, because the inspiration for this series actually came from something that Ivey Deschanel said in her blog -- why not write about old favorite designers more often? Why am I always writing about stuff that's shiny and new? I thought this was a good point, because I do tend to get into ruts, or write about the same handful of designers all the time, and it's great to see if a different shop can be suited to my own taste.

In this case, Sn@tch matches my taste quite perfectly (the jacket is so very opulent, and I want the pants IRL), as does this hair from Detour. I especially love Kaylenie for introducing me to this skin from [42] -- you get a number of lovely skins for 750L, and the makeup is just perfect, eyes and lips all bruised and dark against a blushing cheek. Thanks, Kaylenie!

You look great! :) What I love about this is that you got the same ínstructions' from Kaylenie as I got but the looks are completely different. (it does explain why I spotted you at Detour too :P)

*grin* -- I noticed your post earlier, tear, and thought "hm, neat." Yes, very different looks!

Kaylenie, I think we all give suggestions based upon our own taste, so no worries =)
