This first beautiful dress is called EVOLVE Paisley Underground, and comes in Small, Medium, Large, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. It also includes a HUD with 4 texture choices on it, and as you can see they are very rich fabrics with gold embroidery throughout. It is an alluring style with great colors, so I am very grateful to have found it.
Another prize from the EVOLVE mini hunt can be seen here, their Californication Dress, which comes in Small, Medium, Large, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizing along with a HUD that allows you to choose from 4 different patterns. It is a strapless dress with a twist, as you can see from the side view there is a seam down the right where the fabric is wrapped onto itself like a flower's petals. I particularly like strapless dresses for the accessory possibilities, as so many different necklace lengths suit them so well.
If you are feeling a bit more casual but still want to look put together, I suggest this fun jumpsuit from another EVOLVE hunt prize, which is called Come Up and See Me Sometime. The slits in the pant legs add a sexy touch to this one piece belted mesh outfit, which comes in sizes Small, Medium, and Large. I could not get my mesh body to cooperate with those leg slits, so I slipped out of it for this photo, so this is my classic avatar body in just this photo. The pattern on this is like a beautiful watercolor, and I do enjoy various shades of blue.
Head over to Fashion Dazzle and you can pick up this free anniversary gift from *Lurve* called Forever Summer Flag Bikini. It includes both system layers and appliers for Slink, Omega, TMP, and Lolas, along with bows for hips, neck, and back. The skull and crossbones add a dash of rebellious flavor, love it! On my ankles I am wearing an exclusive offer from Petit Chat for the Fashion Dazzle event, their *PC* Instinct ankle belts. More about those including a closeup next...
Here is a better look at those ankle belts, which are $50L per color with 8 to choose from, or $245L for the fatpack. They each include a HUD with 8 buckle colors, and the individual colors are red, blue, fuchsia, green, black, yellow, white, and rose. If you are like me and you have a hard time deciding, the fatpack may be the way to go since you will save some lindens and have the full range of hues on a HUD. Since I tend to run around the grid in bare feet, I think this will come in very handy as a fashionable way to still enjoy being almost barefoot in style.
The computer overhaul (new motherboard and other components) will happen tomorrow (Monday) instead, so my one day vacation from blogging will be then instead of now. This is what happens when you rely on someone unreliable I guess, sigh, but I am hopeful that it will go smoothly and be a big improvement for all my usual activities. I hope your weekends were good ones, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
