Irina by Last Call



In a lot of ways, the picture really does speak for itself. Irina, part of the new Catwalk Collection from Last Call, really is a beautiful gown. The texture of the bodice in particular appeals to me a great deal, and I am gaga about the corsetlike seaming. There are many beautiful gowns in sl, but not all of them manage this luxe jet setting quality. I should note that the dress comes with prim decorations at the shoulder which are beautiful but not particularly to my taste. As I've said before, I'm not really haute couture, I just like to watch it. ;)

This also has a lovely float to the flexi panels which I assume must be hard to achieve as I don't see it that often. Some of my regular ao poses don't work that well with it but they don't work with any flexi gown like this so that's not the fault of the dress.

I've tried to also capture the details of the skirt both at top and bottom with the gold triangle filigree decorations. Unfortunately, though they are beautiful, they also are trouble for my particular avatar.

The skirt floats a little way on the outside of my avatar as you can see in the one snapshot and no amount of fiddling would fix it so that the triangles would also match up properly. I have, as I've notated before, a very slim avatar, so I'm sure that this problem is to do with that more than anything else but I feel to blog about this gown, I should mention that, in my opinion, tiny flaw as well.

I still very much enjoyed wearing this gown and love having it in my inventory to take out for wear again. Still I'm hoping for that mysterious designer shape that's out there, so that my skirts will fit my body as they were intended.

I'm wearing Irina with the Kate hair by Frangipani Designs, the Gold Sequin maryjanes from Digit Darkes and the Heirloom Collection in gold by Elexor Matador Jewelry. Skin is still Lily - Tan - by Artilleri, lashes are still Classic 3 by Celestial Studios.

I recently changed my shape slightly - since this post - but since I don't know what I'm doing in this area, I'm having issues! I would happily and gratefully welcome any advice you might happen to give and will definitely im you asap. Thanks very very much for the offer.
