Ok, it’s not what you think, get back in your box :P. Today I would like to welcome Willow Caldera to the blog, my sissifur has joined us here at What *IS* Willis (or Arbers) Talkin’ About? (which we need to rename more now)! For her introduction post, we’ve come up with a new take on blogging!
We will take a Theme or something – word, colour, occasion, food (maybe not that) etc.. at random and each make a look each based on it! So you’ll see three different takes on our first chosen theme: Floral!
When I was asked to do a floral themed outfit, my first thought was, “Do I even have anything floral in my inventory?!” I’m not that kind of gal that wears floral patterned clothing, so this was difficult for me. I came across many awesome dresses and casuals that I could use, but it did not feel like it would be something I’d wear. I felt uncomfortable in them.
A few weeks ago, I started stalking…um…subscribing to Mother Goose’s blog, which not only milok Hermit posts her skins, but also low priced to free items she finds around Second Life. There are hits and misses, but when she finds something good, boy does she! I saw her entry on Regenboog’s Leonidas Dress, and I thought “Perfect!”.
I picked it up and gave it a go. I love it the skirt, it has three attachments, one on each hip and the chest, so you hardly see any glitch pants, and it’s great for photographing. The only thing I find odd about the skirt is the belted part, it isn’t closed all the way so I am not sure how the overall look is supposed to be, and it throws me off at times. It’s free, though, and I can overlook it due to the other great things about this dress. The trim at the top come in two options: with or without the ruffles. I prefer the ruffles for volume, but the other look is nice as well.
I’m not convinced my outfit quite captures the essence of ‘floral’ that the summer catwalks had in mind, but there are flowers on it, so it still counts.
I did look for a nice babydoll or a floaty number, but nothing was crawling out of the depths of my inventory and, besides, I liked the contrast in this outfit. I added some girly elements to soften the slightly trashy feel and I rather approve of the “butter might melt, we can’t be sure” result.
And just to reiterate: there are flowers on that blouse, oh yes there are.
I think this whole concept was summed up by me showing dear Sissifur (WillowC.. keep up!) my picture and her declaring that neither of us *quite* got the notion of Floral and me yelling, in caps: BUT IT HAS A FLOWER ON IT. I stand by that!
I’m not a big fan of summer, or floral, i’m not your average girly girl at ALL, but I fell in love with this dress, and based my entire look around it. I thought it was a nice summery touch to add the barefeet, without the blockiness of actual SL mesh feet.. I did also have a flower in my hair to start with, but that was a smidge overkill.. ONLY A SMIDGE! Floral was uttered and all I heard was “WEAR FLOWERY STUFF”.
I have flowers on my dress and I’m eating some, what MORE could you want from a floral look (except perhaps, actual floral stuff).
We hope you enjoyed our three different looks (even our credits are done differently!) Now.. get the looks!!
