Lots of awesome newness today, my friends! If you, like me, routinely miss group messages, take note — Exodi VIPs have new group gift for August — Sophie. This might be one of my favorite faces from Exodi yet! And I was completely delighted to see that the eyeshadow on the skin perfectly matched my new eyes from Insufferable Dastard. These eyes are some of their newest releases – Mirror, and are just gorgeous. The pack comes with prim eyes, and various base options.

While I was at Insufferable Dastard, I took a look at the latest free gift, set out for anybody. Its a nice lip “fade” which just kinda stains your lip without covering the entire lip area. I love the dimension and subtle color it gives to the lip without overwhelming it. I’m not really much of a lipstick girl — so this is perfect. I loved the free gift so much, I joined the Insufferable Dastard group for a small fee and got an entire set as a gift. And even that wasn’t enough — I hopped over to the Grunge Soul Project and bought the set they have there too! Who says a good loss leader can’t yield revenue!! 🙂 The lip color I’m wearing here is one of the Grunge Soul Project colors.

My dress is the newest release from MichaMi … you can always count on her clothing for a kind of timeless elegance. Well-made, as always — this will be a wardrobe staple for a long time to come. Her lines and fabric are so lovely that I kept the accessorizing to a minimum — this dramatic necklace from Miel, and one of the newest Truth hairs. Altogether — an easy look that will go most anywhere.

On a more “technical” note — I’ve long had a goal to learn to use Photoshop more effectively in my photos. So — you’re going to have to suffer thru that with me!! Its my intention to use these techniques for parts of the picture that don’t really distort the actual fashions I’m showing … but I’ll make a note if I do otherwise. Right now — I’m practicing the useful art of liquifying, and this was my first attempt! I used it just to fix some pointy elbows and jagged body lines. I had actually been a little intimidated by the thought… but I think it went pretty well!
