Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be an actress. Going to amazing parties, seeing my name in lights and my likeness on one-sheets all over the world. And shopping. Please – don’t even forget shopping, okay?
I would be able to shop in Milan, Paris, London. When at home in Hollywood, I’d run on over to Rodeo Drive and browse awhile, whenever my schedule permitted.
Then I grew up, and discovered SecondLife, and off I went! For A taste of Rodeo Drive, I like to stroll the walks of Sweethearts Boutiques (the shops adjacent to a most awesome jazz club: Sweethearts Jazz & Romance Club). I can even furnish my homes here! Nearly two sims of gorgeous dresses, dapper outfits for the men, and sparkling jewelry.
I found this dress at Snowpaws, a designer I’ve always liked. I immediately felt very Hollywood as soon as I tried on the dress. I knew I had to have it! And the gorgeous dusty rose color it came in… oooh. The dress itself is a liquid flow of smooth satin, while the removable collar is a shimmering, sparkling confection that creates a look as though you were being filmed in soft focus.
And then – perfection! The Perles de Gloire set by the amazing jeweler, Lazuri. These shine and sparkle and add the finishing touch to this dress. While the earrings are gorgeous in and of themselves, the necklace, with its drop-back, suits the dress best without the collar. How fun is that? Two ways to wear things… three, if you take into consideration the drop back part of the necklace is removable, leaving the choker to be worn on its own if you like.
I am so in love with this! It makes me feel feminine, independent, beautiful. Even if pink isn’t to your liking, go try the other colors (gorgeous jewel-tones!) and other dresses at Snowpaws! The Perles de Gloire collection comes with a hud for each item so you can change the pearls, the metal, and the gems to suit any outfit, any mood. Plus you can manage the brightness, glow, and even if the gems animate or not! Truly, this is one of my favorite looks.
Now, if only I would be invited to the Academy Awards…
