Lucky Chair gift: Pizzicato Poppies

I found Elle Kirshner's gossip bench so charming when I saw it on the feed that I thought it would be fun to make a lucky chair out of it. So of course I had to make a lucky chair exclusive release to celebrate its inauguration! Pizzicato Poppies is named after one of my favorite flowers, and it's a cheerful white spagehtti strap sundress adored with blooming poppies along the skirt and accented with a mandarin orange obi style belt with a bright pink ribbon.

Come on down to the *ICING* mainstore to see if your letter is up. :)

The model is wearing:
Necklace: Paper Couture Heirloom Pendant
Skin: []::Tuli::[] Hope (fair/br) natural
Hair: ETD Felicity
Eyes: Fashionably Dead Blue Eyes
Lashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes

Orchid Delight

I must be in a flowery mood! This week's release is Orchid Delight, a lightly ruched black cocktail dress with off the shoulder sleeves and skirt that is gathered into a side flounce. Subtle vines adorn the bodice and burst into a vibrant bouquet of tropical orchids which intertwine one sleeve.

The model is wearing:
Earrings: from the Paper Couture River Stone Set
Skin: []::Tuli::[] Meredith [ light ] fuschia folly
Hair: ETD Anisa - Smoke
Eyes: Fashionably Dead Blue Eyes
Lashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes

Another new release for this weekend! Casablanca is a ivory duchess satin dress with a sculpted flounce over a slim pencil skirt and embellished with a spray of lilies across the single sleeve, bodice and skirt. It can also be worn without the sculpted portions as a more traditional strapless dress.

This gown is roughly modeled after the stunning Dior gown Dita Von Teese wore to the Chopard Trophy Award a couple of years ago. I saw it, instantly fell in love with it and wanted a version in SL, and when I finally picked up Zbrush I wanted it to be my first sculpted experiment.

The model is wearing:
Jewelry: Paper Couture Moonlight Necklace set
Skin: []::Tuli::[] Meredith [ light ] sweet sixteen
Hair: Ingenue ~ Lamour ~ Noir Black
Eyes: ::Grants.TransparencyShineEyes::ClearGray
Lashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes

Blogger appreciation week!

Callie Cline has thoughtfully declared 5/8 through 5/15 Blogger Appreciation Week, and it's a wonderful idea!  Without the help of many great bloggers, I don't think I would have ever really gotten *ICING* off the ground, so thank you for all the hard work that you do.  

Since I'm a bit of a scatterbrain and I really don't want to forget about anyone, if you're a blogger, please IM me this week with your blog and the name of an item from my store and I'll send it your way as my wholehearted thanks!
