When I am creating a new style, I often like to work with two colors. One offers strong contrast with the other so rather than having everything blending together, it puts in evidence different items. At first, I had tried the new MichaMi “Its a Wrap” dress in chocolate tone to match a jacket from the LeLutka summer collection and flared pants and gloves from The Secret Store new releases. But the petrol color was better enhancing the outfit and showing the dress while a muted tone would have a bit hidden it. So once again, I have chosen a duotone theme for today’s look.

Sometimes, things go wrong. Sometimes, things go right. In this case, everything went right. Melanie Kidd was kind enough to drop on me the new Poseur
poses. They were on my shopping list so I was already pretty pleased to receive this kind gift. First thing to go right.
Then I had a look at the poses and I have to say they are perfect for system skirts, elegant, not deforming the body but still with enough movement to add that little something to a picture, even with basic elements. Second thing to go right.
With such poses I needed an elegant outfit, with a system skirt and a bag. And boom, here comes a review folder from District, a new shop created by one of the former designers of Phoenix Rising. I won’t say it is perfect. I like their style, simple and elegant, totaly the kind of clothes i wear. On the other hand, the seams and edges could be better executed and the prims are nor mod, nor resizable. So unfortunately, it won’t fit every avatar. I’ve checked the prices, they are correct for the quality so I’ll more than probably go back to the shop to check how it evolves. Third thing to go right.
One of the new chignons from Amacci was just what I needed to go on with a classical elegant look. Fourth thing to go right.
Finaly, I’ve added some touches of red to complete the outfit. The ::je::suis::Tente jewelry set in fire was waiting in my inventory for the occasion and here it came. Fifth thing to go right.
