When Valena Glushenko of LeLutka sent me along a folder of some her new items, I was intrigued and a little intimidated. LeLutka is a brand which I would associate with high fashion, a little like one of these RL stores which in RL, if you have to ask how much it costs you cannot afford it. LeLutka has a number of designers under their brand name and Valena is the designer of some really lovely gowns, forget the tea cosy ballroom look, I could imagine these frocks being worn to an opening or high end fundraiser. That said, everything is beautifully designed with classic lines, and a trip to the store convinced me to buy a few more pieces to compliment the look.


This outfit reminded me really strongly of a piece I owned back in the 80’s. It was so comfortable I wore it till it was really ratty. The shoulders are sculpty prims and I had a difficult time fitting it to my body until I had the brilliant idea of playing with my cleavage. So now the prims fit and I have an augmented alt shape! The necklace is texture change which makes it extremely versatile.


This top I picked up by Thora Charron of LeLutka is a perfect compliment to Valena’s shorts. All of these pictures are untouched as I have found that shoppers want to know pretty closely how an item will look while worn.


I loved shooting in all these locations, although I was keeping my eye open for anyone roleplaying the Edo period!


This gown has one or two shoulder options with a lovely transparency in the sleeves.
