Quick Look: A Royal Wedding Day

Here we are, and William and Kate are now Their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!  Throngs have cheered, the kids have kissed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, and I’ve retired to a side chapel for a little quiet time and some quick photos before going home.

When you’re attending a wedding, the idea is to look stylish, but not to outshine the bride.  This tulip print dress by Reale (available on the Marketplace) is a nice spring/summer choice for a wedding day; not too much prim load, so that the bride can have all the good cycles to herself, and yet graceful, flowing and with the promise of tulips in the breeze.  The halter neckline has a bow in back for the final touch.

Your accessories should also be understated yet elegant.  EarthStones tennis suite of bracelet and necklace in champagne-toned diamonds and gold are excellent here.

(Incidentally, if you’re wondering at the different appearance for myself here, I’m in a Japanese mood lately; I’m doing my “Keiko” character.  I’ve lost the maker for both the skin and the hair, but I’ll insert them when I get a better chance.)

2010 SL Oscar Fashion Contest: And the Winners Are….

A bit of a cash windfall allowed me to do an unannounced increase in the prizes for my first SL Oscar Fashion Contest!  The first place will receive L$2,500; 2nd, L$2,000; and 3rd, L$1,500.  I’m also going to do four Honorable Mentions, and have decided after checking the bank account that each will receive L$250.

As these things always are, this was not an easy contest to judge.  I had around 50 entries by the time I closed my groups at Flickr and Koinup for the year, including one who entered by leaving a link in the comments to my original contest announcement (a legal form of entry).  Almost all of the entries were good, and many of them were excellent good.  I had to rework the cut three times before I started the judging in real earnest.  And, in the end, 2nd and 3rd place were tied — although any one of the three places might have been worthy of first.

And so my thanks to all, my congratulations to the winners, and I hope you’ll enjoy the shopping spree I’ve just financed for you.  The Accessory Fair is going right now, so there’s a chance to blow the cash in one spot (grin).

Onward to the winners!
