Day at the Lake

It is the height of summer where I'm at and cute swimsuits are all over Second Life.  Naturally, I decided that our first fashion post would be over some swimwear.  It is also one of the picks from Fifty Linden Fridays, so score one for cohesion!

Pylia Swimsuit v


This bathing suit is from Stories&Co. and is called Vera in the color slime.  I really like the feminine ruffle across the arms and bust line.  The mesh wasn't broken at all and it is a good fit for the Maitreya body.  There are other colors available, they had the Slime and an Orange one, but as I go with the red hair lately, the green looked better.

The shoes are an old standby of mine from Chic & Shoes called Thousand Straps. Included with the shoes (available for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, N-Core, and TMP) you get a HUD with several color options for the shoes as well as the metal.   I walked around the shop looking for them, but I don't see them, so no idea how much I paid, probably around 150L.

My hair is from is Suki from Wasabi Pills.  It is a cute messy top bun, that seems appropriate for some potential lake-side partying.

Now, I'm going to take a dip in the pool!

Fifty Linden Fridays

Shopping is a big part of my Second Life experience. At some point, a few years ago, I discovered the group, Fifty Linden Fridays and ever since then, I try to make a point to pop in on Thursday evening to get the list for shops that will participate in the event.

The USD and Linden exchange rate is about 250L for every dollar. So, FLF is kind of a great deal.

It might seem like this event would have some barely known shops taking part, and that's true sometimes, which makes it a great way to get to know a shop you may not otherwise have a way to know about. It isn't just fashion, they have home decor items as well that are pretty cool and unique.

I'm still going through the list, the event doesn't start until 12am SLT, but I won't be able to make it to get all of the places before I go to sleep as I am two hours behind of SLT, so I'll have to hit it up tomorrow, which means..... tomorrow we'll have our first fashion blog!
