BYO you ask? well why not when you are wearing a hat with candy spilling out to a formal occasion :).
As soon as I saw the colour of the Dutch Sparkle Gown from SySy Designs I knew what hair I wanted to wear with it, this is the Kyandii hair from Eat Rice it comes with the hat separate and OMG the dolly moves. The fabric of this gown itself sparkles like fashion candy, and makes me feel so glamorous with its beautiful floor length fishtail style.
I really like the iridescent effect on the black sheer collarbone section that attaches in a halter style around the neck.
Having a long bare arms look, I wanted to add a little something in the form of the Leather Gloves by Fleur, these come in three lengths and this is the sky set tingted to be a closer match to the blue of the gown.
The jewelry is from Scarlia Impact and the azure gemstones in both pieces worked a treat. The Spangle Bracelet and Essential Earrings are both available in many stone options, so if the styles are ones you have been looking for then check out the different gemstones available. There is some amazing prim manipulation going on in both pieces, really lovely work.
This second set by SySy Designs is at the Rezzable Sim for their Winter Event, get the info HERE.
This is the Flakes in the Snow set and it has many wear options, these two being my favs. The elegance of the long gown look is just wonderful, and with the added accessories and the right hair you can take on any formal occasion.
The shorter option is fun and flirty and I have always dreamt of a gown like this in RL, not this exact colour or fabric, but the ability to just take off a long gown skirt and have an instant shorter version to continue the night dancing etc has always been my want. This set has all that and more.
I really do love that about things we wear here, the ability to use layers and prims in such a way as to evoke a real feel for a moment, and to capture an effect. I think it’s why many want layers, not just because we have strange dressing habits lol.
The illusion of being able to remove a shrug and be left with a shirt that reveals a little hint of bra, all of that is so effective, and people that wear ink should not have to go without bras just because people think its weird to make a bra on any layer other than undershirt. Also I have tats that were only made on shirt layer that means if I was to wear one I need a bikini/bra or tank on jacket SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, or if you have a corset or halter thats low enough but only on the jacket layer and you want to cover up a bit with a shrug you need those on the shirt layer. I know I know we have said all this before, but I went off on a tangent.
End of rant , breeeeeeeeeeeeeeeathes. I don’t even know why I went off on that tangent, SySy does all layers :P.
The shoes to wear with this set were an easy choice, they are the Gothdamn Stilettos by Canimal, such beautiful rich textures on these square toed heels, and the added delight of the bow is lovely especially when peeping through the long version, or with the short.
The hair is truly an honor for me, it is the New Sasy hair from Here Comes Trouble, I have mentioned in the past that Babyboo every few months rocks out some uppydo’s because I had always requested them, she does amazing ones and really puts all she has into them. This one she made especially for New Years and its just beautiful, thank you Booâ™¥.
The jewlery are two seperate pieces from Uzuri, the Ebony earrings are amazing, their size and texture are superbly executed, so much so that Mel even stopped what he was doing and went ‘Wow great Earrings”. The necklace is the Atmospheric Necklace the stones in the choker style are very similar to the ones in the earrings, and even though not part of the same set, you could wear either and or.
Sayang from SySy Designs is a nice take on a cultural style. I’m not exactly sure that was the intent, but the name and the look made me think of indian tunics, and light summery fabrics. This look can go dressy or casual and teamed up with the fabulous Rodeo boots from Adam n Eve I was set.
These boots aren’t just made for walking, they are made for everything. They come in brown versions as well and they are sensational for those that love cowboy boot looks and don’t want all the traditional stitching and embelishments that usually go with.
As I mentioned yesterday Kin has new hair , this is one of the latest styles Mira, absolutely gorgeous in its cleopatra like lovelyness. I really like the thick cut bangs and just the energy of the style.
This is FlashBack by SySy Designs. This is the kind of ensemble that is a mxing of your fav vintage finds at the op shop. Some fantastic leggings, a strapless crochet knit tube dress and a cropped cardigan, it doesn’t get much better than that.
This is another outfit that could lead you into any occasion, starting out casually you could then take off the cardi and slip off the tights – you wouldn’t believe how many pairs of leggings you find in clubs the next day, and then add some more lippy and off you go on a night of adventure.
Feeling all the vintagey love, I went with the Vintish shoes from Aphrodite Creations, these shoes are just gorgeous and if you don’t own any they are definitely a MUST HAVE, especially the two tone and arty ones – drools over the pink and brown.
Another New style by Kin is the Enid style, Ashia, Newdoll and I all went bonkers over this one and you can see why, its a stunning asymetrical cut.
All of the skins I am wearing today are more of the fabulous Kalista skins from Tuli. As I have already stated these are just lovely, with their soft skin shading and over all body features, the make ups are wide and diverse in range, giving you not only highly fashionable skins, but also RP skins and some great looks for arty photography, DEMO DEMO DEMO.
Also from Tuli today are the poses I used in this shoot, they are the Covergirl poses, and they really are lovely and worked a treat for this shoot.
