Ivalde appreciation day

ivalde01


Two years ago when I was but a young blogger, I got the idea that maybe I'd interview different designers and write small profiles about them for my blog. Neferia Abel was one of the first designers that I asked to write about, and she responded to my IM with such a lovely and supportive comment that I've admired her ever since. It takes graciousness and a warm personality to be nice to a new blogger, and Neferia had this in spades. (Here's a link to that old interview!)

Today, in honor of Ivalde Day, I'm wearing a dress from her couture line L'Abel. It's a gorgeous dress, and the textures and construction are well worth the price. She's keeping a little store open at the Retrology sim, here, and you can see items of couture as well as the vintage that she's known for. I hope RL stops kicking her ass soon and that she returns to delight us again with her creations.
