A Sweet Flower Dress: New Release From "a la folie"

“A la folie” had always been one of my favorite brands. It’s a store I turn to when ever I want a pretty dress and feel girly. pixivor Allen, designer of “a la folie,” has just released a lovely dress called ‘Rose Tull.’ She has three colour variations in her store nad they all have both prim and printed flowers….and lots of them. The gown itself is a very feminine design too as all of her other outfits. Being a RL artist who loves to paint flowers a lot, pixivor definitely knows how to create great looking prim flowers as well as draw flowers very well.

a la folie – Rose Tull

The tiny sleeves that sit on the upper arms, the bare shoulders, belts and necklaces that are made of flower stems, the soft tulle used for the skirt, the silky top all help to make this gown a very sweet and lovely outfit. ‘Rose Tull’ comes with the necklace, earrings and bracelet as well as the belt you see in the pics. But that’s not all. It also comes with shoes to match the dress which is not purple but pale yellow. In fact, I was a bit surprised as I was expecting to see a similar coloured pair of shoes as the dress but once you wore the yellow shoes, it matched with the overall flowery image of the gown.

I matched it with a hair from Adored Clothing and Hair, which is a store that sells both outfits and hair as the name suggests. This one I am wearing is a very loose up do that has flowers in the back of the up do. You select the colour of the flower you with to wear and then click on the hair to change the hair colour.

As you can see from the pic above, I think pixivor makes one of the best flowers in SL which can only come from her love of flowers in RL.

A Sweet Coat From Bliss Couture

Bliss Couture is a store that many people know as a gown store. That was my image too. But the other day, I found this sweet short coat that had a nostalgic feel to it. It looked like a couture coat of the past and I liked it very much!

So I tried to imitate a look with a retro feel and decided to add pink as the second colour. Unless you are going for that crazy and fun psychedelic look that is a burst of colours, it is usually good if you decide on the primary colour and secondary colour. Here it’s green and pink.

So I wore this hair style that had a colour changing hair band from Adored Clothing & Hair and matched it with pink boots from Gbberish. These leggings came with the coat in the same set, but you can also wear jeans or other leggings. Another look I would like to try with this coat would be to wear red leggings and make a green & red look. Maybe I’ll try that next time.

I changed the skin too to one that gives me that pink lip. Not the nude pink that current makeups have but one with that mat pink colour in older fashion shots.
