That title is a little joke. When I was first exposed to this absolutely beautiful style of dress, I could have sworn the name was Chenogasm…as in rhyming with orgasm. It reduced me to giggles every time I saw it in text, wondering why it would have such an unusual name.
I have since, of course, learned the truth about the Cheongsam dress, and just how absolutely beautiful they are. They’re sexy and gorgeous, elegant and playful, suggestive and classy, exotic and wonderful, and you should have one in your closet.
My favorite is this one here from Kaithleen’s. The fatpack might set you back a sizable piece of your clothing budget, but it comes with a bountiful array of textures, including the more traditional florals as well as solid colors. I never regret having made the plunge with it. I have some cheongsam-style dresses from other designers, and they’re nice, sure, but this is the one I come back to every, every time. Not only is it perfect for a night out on the town, when trying to impress a date (I can speak from experience that it totally works for that), and it looks pretty fantastic strolling around the streets of London on a foggy night.
(Not that kind of strolling!)
I’m wearing it with pantyhose from Nena, which include a…errr…slightly more adventurous ‘pulled down’ version which I’ve not shown here, but certainly could have it’s time and place. The shoes are from KC Couture, which has more cute tootsie wear from floor to ceiling than one can shake a stick at (not to mention some cute jewelry and piercings too).
Okay, friends, shopping time!
What I’m Wearing:

I have to make a confession. I don’t know that it’s going to be very popular, but here goes.
I don’t really like Halloween.
I’m just not very good with scary, I have a hard time finding a costume that I really like and I always feel as if my costume looks poorly thought out and executed compared to some of the AMAZING costumes I see at Halloween parties in both my First and Second lives.
So…I think I’m going to masquerade as an amateur photographer with a fondness of taking pictures of herself in fun, flirty attire while visiting a spooky locale. It may not be very imaginative, but it’s honest! (And maybe I’ll carry a Captain America shield just for good measure.)
While the costume from the first pictures is no longer available (I looked and looked and just couldn’t find it!), the hair is my go-to short hair by Truth, called Anouk. Isn’t it just cute as all get-out???
The dress is from Kaithleen’s, whom I’ve gushed over in the past. Absolutely one of the best places on the grid for women’s attire (and some lingerie that won’t heat up the boudoir, it will burn it to the darn ground). I love wearing pantyhose in SL; they make my legs look phenomenal AND they aren’t quite the pain in the rear they can be IRL. These are from Style, which is one of my fave places for pantyhose – the gorgeous selection they have is out of this world. The hair? Once again…Truth.
Ha! Captain America defeats the gratuitous booty shot! That’ll teach me.
What I’m Wearing:
Dress: Lace Mini Dress by Kaithleen’s
Pantyhose: Sensuel Seam Black by Style
Shoes: Adala by KC Couture
Hair: Deja by Truth
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
