Runched Hanky Hem Dress by Sexy In Pink Plus Extras

I am a very sad person. I am a sad person who shops so much she needs a special shopping bag folder. I am a sad person who is constantly unable to control her inventory and therefore doesn't know what she has half the time.

That's why I only found this dress in my inventory last night. It's the only explanation. It's an adorable dress too, it really is.

See the photographic evidence below.


I'm not entirely sure but I think you can click to get a larger version.

At any rate, the dress has nice shading for a realistic "runched" effect, it's a great color and best of all in my book, the prims skirt fits me without a lot of fiddling. To top it off, it comes with matching shoes for the skinny price of 275L!

What's not to love? My quibbles are small, the main one being that I noticed while trying to pose for this post that the mesh top like all mesh tops stretches in odd ways on your avatar's body which screws with the texturing. Otherwise, I think this is a bargain and a half.

Moving on, I wanted to talk briefly about the hair and other accessories I'm wearing in the above picture. The hair is by Frangipani Designs and is called Kate. Yes, that Kate, if it looks a bit familiar to anyone out there reading this. I noticed it actually on seeing a post on the Fashion World of SL feed regarding a customer comment on that very fact.

Folks, the collection is called Paparazzi, that should be a clue. 'Nuff said. As for the hair itself, I very much like it, it has both static and flexi pieces which are a must for me, fits nicely on my avatar's head and required almost no fiddling to fit perfectly. The colors at FD are nice also. While you're at Frangipani Designs don't forget to check out both the sale wall and the regular fashions. :)



The skin I'm wearing is by Artilleri, the Lily series in tan. This is my new favorite skin. I've purchased...enough individual skins to make nearly two fatpacks and crossed 3 different skin tones. There's a sultry and coy look about the make ups on this skin that I just can't get enough of. Note that some of these skins have freckles so if that's not your bag be cautious. This is the Marielle make up.

I'm wearing the wonderful Heirloom Collection Jewelry in Gold by Elexor Matador Jewelry thanks to a generous gift and it really has to be seen to be believed.

Bitch Bitch Bitch...

So, let me preface this little rant with the fact that I'm going on no sleep, lots of stress and some rl stuff that makes me want to do various things involving sporks to the eyes of some idiots it is my misfortune to know.

In all fairness, I have a very slender avatar. Very slender. She also has a bust and a booty and a touch of muscle here and there but nevertheless slender. Probably one of the more slender out there, especially since I made her taller after I met my partner so that we could couples dance etc without being so terribly mismatched. I've toyed with my sliders and the only shape I like is that one...go figure.

Prim skirts are both the delight and the bane of my existence. I hold a special place in my heart for designers who either a) include more than one size of prim skirt in the box - bless you or b) your skirt just actually fits me without too much tweaking - hallelujah!.

In preparing a couple of posts for this blog I had to come to the conclusion that there is a mysterious designer shape floating around about which I know nothing. It's a shape passed from one designer to the other, at least insofar as avatar hips and behind are concerned. Gimme, alright?!!!! I need the mysterious and magical hip slider numbers so my skirts will fit, aiight? Please Please Please? Failing that, could you please put more than one size of skirt in the box? Please?

And while I'm on the subject of stuff I wish designers would do? (or not do) Please, you have to have a picture to slap on the vendor or box right? Would it kill you to put the picture in the box so that when I'm scrolling through thousands of items I can open the folder, look at the picture and remember what the sam hill that item looks like without having to put it on? It would make my SL a whole bunch easier.

Another thing? Why for the love of little baby birds do you make stuff that isn't transferable also no copy? In what world does this make sense? I learned how to make outfits - more on this on another post - and I keep finding stuff in weird places because it was no copy. Now I have to keep remembering what not to include in the outfit. It's annoying!

This has been your grumpified post for the morning. Now I am donning my great hunter outfit so I can stalk some coffee. More later.

....To Begin With

Why, you may be asking yourself, am I doing this blog? I have another blog which is basically gathering dust and I surely don't really need a second one. Well, need, no.

Want, oh yes.

I see a lot of people posting very helpful and interesting and entertaining things on their fashion blogs and it looks like fun. I wanna play too!

So, I'm gonna. This is going to be about what I like, about what I buy and play with and learn along the way.

My budget is fairly slim so a lot of my posts may be on things other people have posted about. It may be some mixes and matches or how I discovered the wonders of the Make an Outfit feature - or the pitfalls.

It'll be about fashion done the Delilah way. It may not be haute couture...but it's me. I hope some of you out there in blogging land will enjoy and read and maybe find something fun you wanna explore.
