“Married in month of roses June,
Life will be one long honeymoon.”

Yes, this young blog has made it to 100 posts! Yay!

I thought I’d post something special to celebrate that fact. I have a few never-worn wedding gowns in my SL closet, but this is my favorite. It’s traditional, princess-y and sweet – it suits me perfectly.

Thanks to all of you who keep viewing and commenting at “Dressing DaniRose” – it’s truly appreciated by all involved in its creation!

I went digging around in the back of my virtual closet and found this lovely little thing – it’s the perfect harbinger of spring, swirling with flowers and butterflies!

And isn’t that middle photo something special? It’s a nice break away from our usual format, I think. For those of you who are wondering, Adam uses a PhotoLIFE studio and pose stands from Tillie while he works. For cropping and the occasional minor touch-ups on the images he uses Pixelmator for Macintosh. Me? I just stand there and look pretty. *wink*
