Funny that this weekend one of SLsecrets was about veteran designers not getting any attention, because I feel that is true. Or at least, they’re are not always getting the attention that they deserve. I mentioned it in an interview that I did with Alta Moda last June, and I do try to give the designers that have paved the floor to SL fashion walhalla a platform as well. Especially if they have managed to still be on par with the current standards of SL fashion. Speaking of which, Nephilaine Protagonist from Pixeldolls has always been one of my favourite designers, and with her rez date mid 2003, I think you may say she’s… uhm… ancient? Her designs are not rusty at all though, and in my past 2 years blogging, I have more than once shared her designs with my readers.
I started this outfit with Pixeldolls‘ 2811 velvet long skirt and the dito top. It is a versatile and classy base for a number of outfits. Then I combined it with a lovely top from a relatively new designer, the gold Maitri jacket form Zaara. The jewelry is from the gold Florina collection from Shiny Things, who’s designer Fallingwater Cellardoor is also from 2003, and the gold ballet flats are from Armidi.
The hair is Nico in Autumn from Maitreya, and the skin is Innocense (soft ivory) from Pulse.
