Dancing in the Dark with Sn@tch and The Wash

Hiya everyone! Tonight's post wound up with an unexpected theme of sorts, as I realized that I am wearing dresses in all of the photos. Some are short and some are longer gowns, so you probably wouldn't wear them all to the same exact type of event, but there are a great deal of possibilities here for whatever you may have planned in the near future. Some are from The Wash Cart Sale, which is still going strong with over a week remaining to pick up many terrific discounted items. The more formal gowns are from the current Sn@tch Fish 4 This fishing round, which is called Dancing in the Dark and has a gothic prom flavor in my mind. All you need is a 7 Seas fishing rod (not free but available at Sn@tch and can be used forever, very worthwhile investment) and a little patience, optional is a friend or several to swap your extra pieces with so you can all complete the sets faster. There are 22 pieces for this round: 6 mesh gowns, hair in 3 colors, gloves, stockings, shoes, makeup, earrings, necklace, and tiara. Xan was especially helpful for this round since the first couple of nights of the fishing round were my technology problem days, he is awesome for helping with the fishing and the tech issues simultaneously. Well, let's get dressed up!

First we visit the -CroM- cart at The Wash, where we can find several terrific offers for just $10L each including the Lorelei in Pink on the left above, and Aurora Gray to the right. The lovely Lorelai comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes, and the alluring Aurora is provided in fitmesh standard sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The wording on the front of Lorelai reads "There are No Rules", and I love Aurora's extra skirt layer that is built in. The -CroM- mainstore link can be found here, and the direct ride to their cart is in the ending credits as I usually do.

The next cart we are visiting is The 100, where we can choose from several colors of their Elisabeth Dress such as the Jade seen on the left and the Mauve on the right. These flatteringly styled minis come in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a fitted version for classic avatars. That floral embroidery is just gorgeous! You can visit the mainstore of The 100 by clicking here, and the link in my ending credits will whisk you directly to their cart.

Time to go Dancing in the Dark at Sn@tch :) We start with two of the dresses from this set, Sn@tch Aster Bustier Gown in Oxblood on the left, Mauve on the right. Each of these dresses are provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. The hair I am wearing is one of the three colors you can fish for this round, Sn@tch Starlet Hair in Auburn. I feel very elegant already, and we are just getting started exploring the goodies you can catch.

For this look I switched into the Starlet Hair in Black, and added the Sn@tch Gilded Earrings and Gilded Necklace, each of which are in Silver for this set. The dresses are Rose on the left and Teal on the right, the same beautiful Aster Bustier Gown in the same sizes. But as usual, there is more to see...

Do blondes have more fun? This look certainly is fun, with the Starlet Hair in Platinum being adorned by the Sn@tch Gilded Crown in Silver. It is a perfect fit for this style of course, but can probably suit other updos if you adjust it a bit. I also added the sleek Sn@tch Latex Gloves in Black, which are available in system layers and an Omega applier, topped with lace and bows. Another addition you probably noticed is the makeup, which is also ready to catch as a system layer and Omega applier, called Sn@tch Dancing in the Dark Makeup. It features a sultry smoky eye and rich red lips, just right for any of these beautiful gowns. Speaking of the gowns, I am wearing the Eggplant color on the left here, and the Black on the right, in case you want the full dark feeling for your gown. Personally I think my choice would depend on my mood, since I like so many of these shades for everyday wear and paired with black. 

I thought my technology issues would stop at three, but I guess I was overly of the recent problems reared its ugly head again, so maybe I can just count it as part two of one of the originals. I think my avi needs to take a long tropical vacation for me, somewhere cheerful with fruity drinks and pretty sunsets. Meanwhile I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
