….nothing left to prove: Very Classy

When Tres Beau’s White Linen dress floated to the top of my consciousness earlier this summer, I thought to myself, “That could work…”  It’s obviously a sophisticated look with great style…but I never expected it to drip sex like it does.  Sex and class! That’s a tough combo to pull off, but the high popped collar, the deeply plunging neckline, the smoking hot slit to the waist all conspire with a *perfectly* made flexi-skirt and righteous textures to make a one of a kind dress.  And the linen never wrinkles!  Yes!

And praise the lord, it moves!  I’ve gotten a bit of a bee in my bonnet over time about clothing that you can’t move in without body bits poking out in all sorts of strange places.  It’s getting better as skills improve, but there’s a lot of it around still, even from the grid’s best designers…not this one though!  You can breakdance in this sucker if you want.  I know.  I have. And it moves beautifully!

Boon has slowly but certainly become one of my favorite hairs on the grid, combining fresh, innovative styles with impeccable technical skills. There are a lot of hair designers out there making off the wall styles, but who lack the technical skills to really pull it off. There are technical masters as well on the grid who choose to make the same hair over and over again, seemingly never drawn to explore the possibilities. Boon is fascinating in that they’ve found a way to go out on a limb, but not fall out of the tree.  I *like* that.

LeLutka.  Ah, who but LeLutka could make a skin that could hold its own here? It’s Lola, of course, but you knew that. Lola the ubiquitous, and she turns up here ‘coz I can’t seem to take her off no matter how hard I try. Well, that, and she was clearly born to wear this dress.

In the background is NOTsoBAD’s Maria Hacienda–so joyful, so marvelously designed and with such exquisite textures that my heart began to thump madly when I first saw it, so much so it necessitated my darling Jonathan drag me out by the hair screaming lest I add it to our already burgeoning collection of houses. Have no doubts though, I’ll sneak it onto the sim sooner or later…
