For some of us, gone are the days of Formal Events in Second Life…but I do enjoy seeing so many lovely ladies in their finery tping in and out of sims, grabbing that last minute clutch purse, or the perfect updo to finish a look. In the olden days, we used to wear the gowns we bought, there was always an occasion about to happen, or just have happened that we all coo’d and aaaahhh’d over for weeks leading up to and days afterwards. There was once even a huge event on my own sim at The Deck, I heard it was a wonderful affair, unfortunately my internet went down and I missed my own Suprise Party.
So formal wear for me these days is more of a collectable piece, something that I know I will cherish the beauty of, but may never wear off the posestand. This incredible peplum gown skirt (it comes without as well, which is brilliant) is one of those pieces that on sight I hoped would fit my body, and was so overjoyed that it did. Then lo and behold just a few booths up at Trend 3 was this knockout blouse, that I knew instantly would make the perfect accompaniment to the skirt, and perfection it fit too.
The richness of both fabrics makes them statements in themselves, so some demure pearls on the wrists and lobes is all that is needed…also bringing out some older hair in the form of Moon by Maitreya that I have missed wearing. These styles were epic, and still hold up today, I would love to see them redone in mesh but if I say that out loud Onyx will put gum in my hair and that will be the end of that…so shhhhhhh.
