Bad French

In his review of the Vivant Skin for men at SL Men, Ben Vanguard mentioned that Tête à Pied means nothing in French. Well, I have a confession to make, I almost failed French in college and while CJ's French is better, we both tend to have a rather lackadaisical approach to interpretation. It's too late to change our name and I'm sure that in the 1+ years that we've been around, we've made a lot more errors and I know I've done yet another with our latest skin. The newest look is called "vin" as in wine but it lacks the right article and well...I'm sorry but I'm passing on giving it one. I ask the French speakers of SL to forgive us, our French is only skin deep and we never mean for them to translate literally, it's more....literary.

Now on to the makeup. A lot of the ladies out there seem to love a makeup with a pout and it's been a month since our last one, so that was the first priority with this look. I have been reading suggestion card on makeup looks and noticed a good handful of women suggested wine shades so I went in search of the right outfit to inspire me with that in mind. As soon as Nicky Ree's Divine Sisi gown, I fell in love. I especially adore the off the shoulder neckline and well placed prim, puffed sleeves.

Aww well my french is not very good either but I always thought it meant something like "head to toe". At least it shows more imagination than my own brand name rofl.

I didnt know literary and pretentious were synonyms.

They're not. Your grammer is as bad as your comprehension too, it's didn't with an apostrophe.

That would be "grammar" with an a.

Ros this makeup is like the Avril you did in the spring in that it's gorgeous and I'm having a hard time taking it off!!!

Thanks for all the amazing creations these past few make me purty!! <3333

(And who cares about the French being literal or not...coming up with names is hard enough!!'s the amazing quality that matters.)

Thanks Kit! As for my first anon comment...I find it kind of ironic that I poked fun at us and was about as unpretentious as one could be and you totally MISSED that. I'm not exactly sure why you felt the need to post that comment or what your desired effect was but I'm pretty sure you failed because I felt NOTHING. Well, actually, I felt a tiny bit of glee, that's actually a pretty good insult, as far as they go.
