Let's get this party started with a sexy bikini that would be great for a beach party or pool party this weekend. This is a gift on the marketplace from Kona Beach, their Stars and Stripes, which includes a male and a female swimsuit. The ladies' gift includes system layers, appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, and the bows you see on each hip along with bows for the back of the top (not shown, hidden in my hair LOL). Very generous as well as a flattering suit.
My next look is also from the marketplace, starting with the crop top from Kandee's Fashions called Blue USA Crop Top. It comes in plenty of mesh sizes, including 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, and would probably work well layered over the bikini from the first photo if you want a bit more coverage of the underboob area. The jeans are also a fun marketplace find, the Delizio Jeans and Appliers for Maitreya and Omega. These versatile wardrobe staples come in a wide variety of colors: light blue as shown, blue, cream, black, green, lilac, pink, pink pinstripe, and white. You get the whole fatpack for free!
As I mentioned, there are a few free gifts on the marketplace that are honoring Orlando, and I am delighted to show two of them here. The shirt is Dream Decosta's #PrayForOrlando Crop Tank, in several mesh sizes including standard, fitted, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Slink Hourglass. The front reads "More Love Less Hate" and the back (hiding beneath my hair) reads "#PrayForOrlando". My necklace is a marketplace gift from JCNY, a longtime staple in the jewelry world of SL, and is called Peace To Orlando Pride Necklace. There is a bling script that is easily turned off (just type bling off in local chat), a built in resize script, and a texture change menu for the cord. Such an attractive gift, and it is a thoughtful tribute.
My final look for the evening is the wonderful Rainbow Heart collection by Bella Elephante, which is a 100% donation item at the Pulse Fundraiser. For $125L you get the Slink HUD with 10 colors each adorned with a rainbow heart, and you can enjoy the knowledge that your lindens are well spent as a full donation to Equality Florida.
Hair note of the night: my lovely new locks are from the Midnight Mania board at the newly reopened Olive Hair, a full fatpack called Melody with several color HUDs to suit your every mood. As you can tell, I had a great time with them :) No group is needed, and there are three lucky boards there as well so you could wind up with a few new styles.
My houseguest for the long weekend is nearly here, so my weekend will be a busy but entertaining one. My posts may be smaller or less often, but I won't be gone long and will still be logging in to take care of notices and such. I hope you all have a safe and beautiful weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
