The simple things

Or at least a hut that’s filled with some. The blacksmith who owns it and his wife were rather perplexed when I asked if I could take some snapshots in this half tumbled down shack on their property but the wildflowers were just too pretty to ignore; knowing my luck my next choice would probably have been somewhere that would have given me a bad case of poison ivy. Anyways, this modest backdrop proved to be perfect for the theme that I was going for; simplicity. With a game like SL, it’s often easy to get carried away with bright colors, outrageous prints, and giant pig hats but once in a while, you’ll find a dress that’s so quietly elegant that you’ll have to have it.

I’m talking about Azul’s February group gift. More often than not empire dresses will help you achieve a very flattering silhouette and that’s exactly the case when you slip on this lovely off shoulder number. I simply adore the cut of this dress but if you’re worried about it being too simple the bodice is decorated with subtle patterns to add that little bit of oomph (do people still say oomph?) to this understated look. Neither black nor white is going out of style anytime soon so this dress is a keeper. It comes in the following sizes:

  • 5 Fitmesh sizes (XXS-L)
  • 1 Fitmesh Slink size
  • 1 Fitmesh Maitreya size
  • 1 Fitmesh Belleza size

Included in the gift package is a nifty alpha layer as well as an added flexi skirt to give you dress some flowy movement. If you’re a little bit puzzled as to why I’m talking (writing?) about February’s group gift when we’re now well into March, well, Azul has a lot (and I do mean a lot) of their past group gifts out (judging by the names gifts come on the regular as well). They’re all gorgeously designed, well made and absolutely free as there’s no cost to joining the group.

Shimmer and shine

At first, I had intended to present the dress without any accessories. It’s beautiful as is and able to stand on it’s own but then I stopped by the Marketplace and came across a store called Kosh and it’s wide selection of dollarbies. The Rapture necklace and earrings caught my eye as I felt that they had a cool steampunk look to them (they reminded me of gears and bolts welded together). When I put them on, though, I discovered that the green gem in their centers was rather reflective and had and faintly glowed. It was a really nice, detailed touch. There are no resize scripts for both pieces of jewelry but permissions are set to mod and copy so you’ll be able to make backups if stretching or moving of prims go awry. The Rapture necklace and earrings cost 1L respectively and do poke around the Kosh store as they have other interesting dollarbie accessories and clothing items.

And that’s a wrap. Mr. and Mrs. Blacksmith have asked if I wanted to stay for lunch and the food smells too good to decline their offer. Let’s just hope the owls remember their table manners. Catch you guys later!
