Courting Blues

Innocence is corroded by time; keep enough that you may still know hope.

I started with this unusual top from Miamai. The low-cut halter neck leaves a generous amount of cleavage on display, but remains tasteful, the back cut high with the fabric slouching a little for a soft look. The cups are speckled with metallic flecks, the bodice leading to a flounced skirt with uneven hemline, the panels of unequal length with a distinct opening to the front.

This u.f.o skirt seemed the perfect bedfellow, its light, transparent fabric falling in a similar choppy style. The print combines an array of colours and tones which makes it easy to match up with your accessories. It’s part of a collection of dresses which are equally as attractive in their own right.

As a note, this is a simple look but do be warned that editing the skirt prims to create it is a bit of a faff. Unfortunately the skirt from u.f.o is not modifiable meaning you have to do some pushing and pulling before concentrating all your efforts on the Miamai top. Because of the various alphas conflicting, you will have your work cut out in ensuring cohesive layers, but despite my initial frustrations I found it worth the effort.

For shoes I chose on these pumps from AOHARU. Set on a small wooden heel, the slippers are fashioned from a pale canvas decorated with roses and other flowers in bloom. They’re nicely lined and trimmed, finished with white lace bows double wrapped in the middle. These are perfect seasonal wear and come in an array of colours to suit.

I couldn’t resist this floral jewellery set from JD Design. The silver chain links are interspersed with blossoms of graduating size, the necklace strung with a white pendant piece and excess of chain, the bracelet falling long to mimic the style, artfully set to an asymmetric line that runs back down the wrist. The black accent pieces could have looked a little out of place, so I ensured I was wearing thick lashes and a skin with strong eyeliner to balance it off. With rich pink lipstick drawing back to the pastel shades central to the style, everything comes together nicely.

The rose I’m carrying is from Illusions, available with your preference of permissions and an extremely useful colour-change script that allows you to change both stem and petals to suit. Suiting the setting, it also ties in with my hairband, part of the Christina style new from Truth.

The hair is loose with soft waves that kiss the shoulders, thick fringe guided right and sitting just above the eyes. The quirk of Christina is the pouf of hair that rests above the band, volumised in a way that isn’t over the top but is still unusual enough to make this interesting. Christina has a good range of options available, with colour change on both hairband and flower and the ability to turn the flower invisible if you prefer not to wear it. There is also a second style available from Truth called ‘Christina 2’ which has a braid encircling the head in place of the band.
