Fashion Dazzle and Free Dove

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have two places to visit, but they are both located on the same lovely sim so it is even easier to pick up all of tonight's featured fashions. The first photo has some of the amazing offerings from Loordes of London at Fashion Dazzle, and I was very impressed with their interpretation of the Fashion Dazzle theme for November, Geometry Shapes in Fashion. The entire event is a visual feast, and all the designers went all out to decorate their displays splendidly. It is always a treat to visit with such creative themes and exclusive offers. My other looks are all from The Free Dove, from among the many free gifts that are not part of the mini hunts but available for all Free Dove group members. Each area is labeled so you know just where to browse if you are looking for clothing, accessories, shapes, skin, etc., for men or women. I certainly found some wonderful gifts that I couldn't resist sharing with all of you.

I chose two of the dresses and two pairs of boots to show you from the Loordes of London selection at Fashion Dazzle, aren't those shapes remarkable? On the left is Loordes of London-The Samothrace#14, and on the right The Samothrace#34 is the dress of choice. They are a single mesh piece with belt attached, provided in standard sizes. The boots on the left are Loordes of London-The French Quarter Boots Teal/Gold, and on the right are the same in Black/Gold, complete with alpha and shoe base so no particular mesh feet are required. Each of these beauties, the dresses and the boots, are just $50L, and there are other versions of the dress and the boots available there as well. 

Next I wandered over to The Free Dove, another favorite place of mine to visit, and was immediately drawn to this dress from !Rebel Hope called Amy Mesh Gift Dress. She is included in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. There is also a handy HUD with 10 dress colors and 4 metal options, and as you can see on the right that metal includes several chains draped across the back. The details really captured my attention, and the versatility of the HUD just makes it even better, especially for a free gift.

Confession: it is really chilly here right now in RL, and I am a bit jealous of my avi's ability to still enjoy such breezy styles! This striking mini dress is a gift from 1 Hundred. and is called Heatwave Mini Fuschia. I love the splashes of color and the myriad of flowers decorating this dress, which you will receive in an unrigged mesh version plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes when you claim this free gift.

Now this is a fun look for when we want something more casual, and are not ready to bundle up yet. It is our gift from Artizana, called Terike IV - Halter Top + Harem Pants. Each piece is included in standard, Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP sizes.

One last look of the evening, a very thoughtful gift from Baby Monkey called BM Elise Dress Print, and this print is actually an exclusive for The Free Dove. It also has some bonus versatility, as it includes the dress as well as the shirt and skirt separately in case you wish to do a bit of mixing and matching. Each part is provided in a fitmesh size plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. Don't forget to check the shoe section for another gift from them :)

It was a strange day, one that reminded me of just how not tech-savvy I really Photoshop wanted to update (Creative Cloud, Adobe...) but the install was failing because of 2 stubborn files. It took a few people and several hours before we resorted to a temporary fix of installing an old version so I'd have some way to edit blog pictures for tonight. The important thing is that I was obviously able to make do with the old version, and I'll be curious to see when it asks me to update again. My answer will be no, at least not until I'm sure things are less buggy. I hope you're all having a great day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
