Beachy Keen!

This post started out with nothing more than the purchase of a few new items from Cupcakes, the brainchild of Rosemary Galbraith and Mimi Coral. The outfit itself – comprised of the corset tank top in Tropica – Blue and the summer shorts in Green 1, just shrieks of warm summer and playtime but also of long lazy vacations somewhere romantic. My accessories are meant to reflect these ideas along with a touch of a ’60’s beach movie vibe. I love the rich colors and satiny texture on these and bought other color combos also.

I had a lot of fun shopping for almost everything seen here. I’m wearing the Laqroki – Glow- Skin, the Blondie face in Peach with the #6 makeup with the aqua eye makeup to blend with the colors in the top. I made a stop at Truth to check out all the lovely new hair styles there and completely fell in love with several, including this one called Alicia. I’m wearing the hair in strawberry.

My jewelry was a gift and is called Nereid, by Tekeli-li. The pearls, stars and shells continued to pick up the beach holiday attitude and though this is color change, I liked this setting and left it as is. This also is perfect with the Alicia hair which leaves most of your back bare, revealing the dangling back of the necklace in this set.

The question of shoes left me in a bit of a quandary until I found these sandals at Slink. I felt the heel was high enough for a stylish lady on a vacation but not so high as to invite broken ankles on the veranda. They are the Desire sandals in Verde to pick up the brilliant green of the shorts. I set the toe nail and other options in complimentary colors to the whole outfit. I did want to mention I have several different varieties and versions of the bare foot and shoe idea and I really think Slink’s omni hud may be the simplest and most complete I’ve seen. Also, despite the fact I used the ankle lock setting I did have a few issues with ankles doing wonky things with my poses, but I suspect that has something to do with the priorities of the animations involved or my own ineptitude.

Finally you can see my wee butterfly pet on a string which was made by Redd Columbia and is a gift in the Bunny Hop hunt from RC Cluster.

The backdrop for these shots was built by me, the lounger is by the former Randem Designs now Mudhoney. I hid the pose balls but the lounger has several nice ones for a really slim price. Poses are by the fabulous Dove Swanson of Long Awkward Pose and I’m now using the VR Foundry Professional Pose Stand system. Please make sure you click through on the pics since they look much much better large but I don’t want to take up the whole browser window to show you this outfit.
