I’m not one for parties in Second Life. It’s not that I don’t like them, I do but my computer doesn’t. Unless I have my cam aimed at the floor the lag I suffer is almost impossible to manage. On the other hand I do love any excuse to find the perfect party outfit so when I got an invitation for the Plurk Party this weekend I was off scrambling through my inventory in a shot.
After at least..ooo…let me think…20 seconds, I decided I needed to shop. What?! 20 seconds is plenty of time to decide I had nothing in my almost 30,000 item inventory that was suitable….
Three hours later I returned with the most perfect, most stylish, most breathtaking, amazing and awesome outfit the grid has ever seen. Tales would be told of how superb and fabulous this ensemble was. It would be talked about in hushed whispers whenever an event was held. Then I put it on, decided it sucked ass and went with something I’ve had in my inventory for years…
I love this dress like only a sparkle addict could. Redgrave have always produced amazingly detailed and beautifully designed clothes in my opinion. It’s a little sad to me that people only associate them with skins now because their fashion for both men and women is stunning. I’ve had this dress for a while now and, as usual, I had forgotten all about it as I was waiting for THE perfect opportunity to wear it.
It has these gorgeous puffy sculpted sleeves that I adore in every way possible and this cute little flexi foultard around the neck which comes in 2 or 3 options. It also has a belt and a prim skirt so it can be worn alone as a saucy little cocktail dress if you so desire. I decided to dress it down a touch for this party as it wasn’t quite going to be the sophisticated affair of the year and wore it over these amazing new jeans from Sand Shack Surf Co. If you haven’t had the pleasure of going to this store yet I highly recommend you do. It is full to bursting with uber cuteness. These jeans are their new Belmar Skinny Jeans and I will be honest, when I first opened the folder and saw no prim cuffs I was ready to spit nails…but then I saw a sock layer. Always being one to try something new I tried them and OMG..awesomeness in a clothing layer! Socks are the new prim cuff for skinny jeans.
For shoes, I finally caved in and went over to the darkside…I bought Maitreya’s prim toed shoes. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against prim toes. I was the first of my friends to discover J’s when they only had 2 pairs of prim toed shoes and happily flashed my tootsies to the world but after everyone and their mother went mental over them and after the issues with tinting, I have steered clear for a long time. However, this outfit needed prim toes…it screamed “BUY PRIM TOES” at me over and over and who am I to resist. They also look fab with the skinny jeans.
For accessories I decided I had enough sparkle going on (I know, I know…you can never have enough sparkle really but lets pretend for the sake of my post, k?) so I went with this simple but yumminess-in-a-prim ring from Paper Couture. No more words needed…just look at it…*sigh*
Hair is a classic style from fri.day and skin today is my usual Alyson from Belleza but with a fancy make up for something a little different.
Thats about it from me lovelies..I’m off the shop for more partywear I can forget about for years.
