It was thiiiiiiis big
Are there markets where you live? I used to be a market girl, both selling and buying. Going to the markets in Sydney can be a huge event, much like a social experience, especially Bondi markets. You know when you see people gather together and do the whole “OMG how are you *kiss kiss* you look FABULOUS *kiss kiss* and yet they had coffee with each other an hour earlier.
It was always fun shopping, watching, eating..all of those fabulous food items that you can’t get anywhere else. One of the markets we used to frequent even had tibetan food, that was definitely a high falutin market. Always also definitely a place to people watch, fashion wise, you really did have to put on your best look for the day, but had to look as though you weren’t trying.
That’s definitely how I feel about the first outfit today. It is a really beautiful, yet casual to the eye look. The style of top is always a pleasure to wear, crushed silk in an assortment of beautiful pastels, featuring a floral brooch on the strap. This style top in RL can range in price, from an incredible bargain, to a mortgage payment. Either way it is a delight to wear, and accentuates all your feminine attributes. The jeans have a worn in look, they could be yours, they could be your flatmates, male or female, it doesn’t matter as long as they don’t look straight off the hanger.Fishy Strawberry has done a fabulous job of pulling this off on both counts.
Who can resist clogs, they have come and gone in fashion, as long as I have been alive, and further back than that. The new Klaks from Tesla are beauties, they are the right style and fit, for any casual occasion. The hair has to be just right as well, not overly styled, but not too not done either, it has to look like you put in some effort, just not a big one lol.
That’s why the new Fri hair from Miel is just right, it has that *grabs the nearest hair ribbon * and loosely ties it up and back, pulling out a few tendrils for effect. Yeah yeah , we all do it. Another great hairstyle is the Audrey II designed by Jolie Femme. This hair is soft and wavy, with a freshly washed look to it, the hair is made up of a lot of alpha pieces, but luckily it isnt overly flexified, so it doesn’t move too much, it just moves when and how it should.
The pretty silk babydolls are also from Fishy Strawberry, they have a subtle motif at the bottom, that doesn’t stand out too much, making it still a somewhat dressy dress. The straps falling off the shoulders is fun, and charming, the silk is so soft that it has definitely brought to attention the shape of the body – yes that’s my subtle way of saying it has nipple highlights . I have to admit , I am not a fan of that look, I have in the past asked for an additional layer to not include it, giving people a choice.
I tend to be embarrassed about the idea of standing around on high beam, and not all fabrics would even allow for that effect, but in SL it seems to be a popular thing to do. But while thinking that originally with this dress, I realised that with this type of silk fabric, and the bare arms and full skirt, there would probably be a 95% chance of it happening, so that made it much more tolerable, plus the dress is beautiful.
The delicate jewelry that just entered my life, is the Cinderella set by Skream, really pretty pieces make up this silver and diamond encrusted set, the drops in the necklace are lovely, I could see wearing it a lot of the time, especially with the bangle as well, reminds me of those tennis bracelets in RL – which I still don’t understand why they are called that .
With all of this I am wearing the beautiful SLOTH Skin by Red Queen, I have had this one for the length of time it took to take the pics, and tpd to see two friends in between and both thought it was beautiful, which is always a great thing, but I knew it already. There are so many options with the Red Queen skins, hair bases, brow options, tattoo options and some beaten up bumps and bruises options, that are perfect for RP.
