"Dreamers dwell wide-eyed in a sea of satin and moss."
I have a thing for octopi. Sea creatures are among my favorites and their watery habitat is a world that, if I were to live another life, I’d like to inhabit. The rolling waves and immense depths of the ocean, to me, relate to human emotions. The sea, with it’s dangers and its beauties, conjure up incredibly visceral feelings.

I actually saw this dress by LeLutka on a fashion blog originally and immediately had to have it. The octopus broach/closure is so beautiful and when you zoom in close there are little, jeweled suction cups (look like cute, tiny barnacles) lining the legs. The octopus was, without a doubt, what sold me at first. Second, I noticed that the textures are really quite beautiful and the shading is lovely. I try not to do too much Photoshop work on my images so that the products are clear. It’s nice to purchase a product that, out of the box, is quite lovely. The dress is quality and doesn’t need any help to look great.

The tights I also saw on the same blog (sLuxury: I recommend it). In my opinion, that blogger made an excellent pairing with the two so my hat goes of to them. The shoes I selected are by Tia and are called the “Ever After Shoe.” I bought them on the SL marketplace originally. The textures are nice and the sculpties are lovely, especially the bow on the back of each shoe. I snagged them for an excellent price as far as SL shoes go. I’ve noticed shoes can get quite pricy in the digital world. Quality isn’t always cheap, however, and I respect the time people take to produce their product.
"Land soft, sweet dreamer. Land soft and dream a new day."
Jewelry is something I need more of. I have problems finding pieces in SL that I’d like to own. Thankfully, however, I was shown jewelry by Mandala. The store in-world is really beautiful and thoughtfully designed, which makes sense considering the jeweler also paid close attention to detail when creating their pieces.
Detail is something I really appreciate. Giving your product depth gives it character. Think like you live in the sea. Swim deep and bring back something new and exciting.
