(Ugh…that’s the best I can do with that title?)
Before we start, please forgive me for my long and rather unexplained break. I was…well…if I’m honest, lazy. The times I’d pop onto SL with the best intentions I wound up having just too much fun. Today, however, I resolved that I would have fun and get my blogging on!
Oh! A spot of news! Belleza updated their mesh body to include Bento hands, and there was much rejoicing! With that in mind, I’ve switched over to my Belleza Freya body on a semi-permanent basis. I’ll miss my Maitreya exclusives, but I just like the way I look in Freya more. Enough chit-chat, let’s talk fashion!
This afternoon the AMAZING Superharry Kingmaker was spinning 70s and 80s disco and dance tunes at one of my favorite clubs on the grid, Cling. I think I’ve talked about Cling in the past, but it’s my second home-away-from-home. I love it here, and if you’re ever in the mood for a little nylon or latex and some fantastic tunes with some amazing company, you should come by!
I’m wearing Soraia from Insanya which is at this month’s The Season’s Story event. I love Insanya. LOVE them. They just exemplify tastefully trampy with a high quality, fun, and rather reasonably priced array of pieces from this sexy dress to skirts that bare the entirety of one’s bottom (I have that one too).
The pantyhose are from Bebe, and thankfully they use an Omega applier so I’ll still be able to wear them! LOVE how my curvier (my niece told me the word is thicc, spelled just like that, but I just can’t quite bring myself to say it) thighs, backside, and calves look with nylons, leggings, tight jeans, etc.
What I’m Wearing
Nylons: Seduction from Bebe (MP Link)
Shoes: Malia by KC Couture
Hair: G0911 by tram
P.S. The party got a tiny bit wild…
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:
