I visited Connors just to see if there was anything I liked. I found this lovely cocktail dress at Connors that was marked as a new release. I loved how the lace skirt slowed out from a very low position, giving the dress an almost 30’s type vintage feel.
So I set off to style a modern vintage. In other words, a look that had a taste of a vintage look without going all the way 30’s. I picked pale lilac as a colour I wanted to add which was something I thought might not over-shadow the lovely ivory colour. The gloves you see in the pic were gloves with relatively large cuff parts which I decided not to use to keep it simple.
It is always very difficult to find the exact colour shoes you want but with these pair of shoes from Virtual Impressions, you can use a HUD that comes with the shoes and pick what ever colour you like using a colour chart. This is what I love about Virtual Impressions shoes. As long as you can find a shoe’s design that matches, you never have to worry about the colour.
The skin I wore here was a new skin from Katsucide Skins called Laura skin in light. This skin store is also participating in FFL (Fashion For Life) and has a really great drow skin if any of you are interested. And one of the drow skins “Sandra cendre – Cerise – Dark” is an FFL donate skin, which means 100% of the sales go to FFL.
