First we get to dazzle in white, starting with the great dress from TentatioN. Their gift to us comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 standard, 5 fitted, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. I matched it with another gift found there, from DE Boutique, their AW16 Brenda Heels Special Gift. These are a perfect fit for my Slink high feet, and have pretty details like those bright golden buckles.
This lovely dress is a gift from Sinful Curves Skins named Cassie, and the texture put me in mind of either Halloween or a throwback to the old HBO series Carnivale since it was set in the Dust Bowl era and everything was filmed in earth tones. I think the stripes made me think of a carnival as well. Inside your gift you will find this dress in several sizes for mesh bodies rather than standards: Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. It is very possible that one of those will fit a classic avatar, and normally I'd say to try a demo if there is any doubt but for free it almost IS a demo for itself :) *wonders if Carnivale is available on Netflix...*
Speaking of mesh bodies, this terrific gift from [WellMade] is their Sue Dress in a size for Maitreya bodies. You may have realized that the only mesh body I own right now is a Slink Physique, so I am grateful to be able to alpha out some sections of my body to accommodate the differences. I wonder if this color is considered oxblood, a really hot color this season. I definitely like it whatever it is called, my RL birthstone is garnet which can be similar.
Another wonderful gift you can find at Designer Circle is this Sasha Sweater in Zigzag from MOoH! which includes a HUD with 4 color choices. The sweater itself, which is just long enough to wear as a dress or you could pair it with your favorite pants beneath, comes in many different mesh sizes to suit almost everyone: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Maitreya in tight or loose fit, and Slink in tight or loose fit (loose shown here). The versatility is such an important part of this gift, and I am quite fond of the stripes being almost like chevrons.
For a bright pop of color on an alluring dress, be sure to pick up the gift from Prism Designs, their Faye Sequin Dress by Jezzixa Cazalet in Turquoise. This beauty comes in standard mesh sizes, and just look at that sparkly texture up top and the stunning jeweled bow with dangling pearl as part of the texture on the front. Color me pleased :)
One last look of the evening, this is a better look at the eyes I have been wearing tonight which are also a gift found at Designer Circle. MESANGE has these Mineko eyes set out as a gift for all of us, a striking silvery shade in system layers along with mesh and HUDs for Omega and Genesis. No matter what outfit you wear, your eyes may be noticed first when you meet someone and particularly if they are this attractive.
Things are returning to "normal" around here, LOL, whatever that may be, for a week or so then the rush of preparing for Thanksgiving will be here. I am actually nervous about this year's big family get-together, I am concerned that someone will bring up politics and that will create much tension if it happens. I'm trying to focus on the happier things, seeing family members that I rarely get to see otherwise and just enjoying the yummy food. I will just leave the table for a bit if need be. I hope Monday was good to all of you and that your week ahead holds plenty of good things, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
