I have mentioned in the past how much I love a good hybrid, the mixing of system layers and mesh, to really add extra versatility to an item. This Basic Maxi dress is a fantastic example of that, and you will want as many as you can get your hands on, the style, the colours – the appliers – it all works. I wanted to show how it can go from a casual daytime look, to a dressier night out style with a few simple items added to the look.
With the help of the lovely mesh denim jacket from Emery that is at this months FaMESHed, the combination mixed with the system layer upper portion of the dress is perfect. Adding a few bits and pieces of your favourite jewellery would add a lot of flavour to the look, but I settled for simple today. I was never into denim jackets when they were a big thing in the 80’s but one of my friends was obsessed, and after wearing this one by Emery, I can understand the attraction after all this time. The sunbrella which is a C88 event item by Yummy, is adorable, and thankfully mod also, seeing as it was a bit oversized to start with, but I made it a little smaller.
The lovely wanda hole belt from LaGyo adds just the right amount of dressy to the look for a night out. I really dig this belt a lot, also that its mesh and mod means that it sizes well and was a great fit to my shape.
moving on down to the footwear, also from House of Fox, the Vivian shoes are adorable. They are the perfect summery sandal look, with a great chunky platform and wonderful colours or colourful combinations. The HUD was easy to use, and I found the base layer matched my skin which was a bonus, but tinting is not something I ever find a chore.
With my SLink hands, I am wearing the avatar enhanced versions, and Belleza just released hand appliers for these last week, so off I ran and got mine, they look great, and I am wearing two of the New Flair nails appliers with them. I plan on doing another gift set for the subscriber in the next week, so be sure to hit that up when you visit. Also in the hands, is one of the NEW Workwear leather clutches by Mon Tissu, it comes in two options, rigged and unrigged and the colours are fabulous. A great addition to a look for either day or night.
The Belleza skin I am wearing is actually part of the 100Block event, so it is at a great discounted price, and I just love the Ava skin, it has such a great face and mouth, and the make up choice is beautiful, so demo demo that when you are there.
