Lord, in his deepest dreams the gypsy flies,
With sweet Melissa.

Sweet Melissa

I heard this song today, and it was so laid back and lovely, it reminded me of a pretty sunset at the beach, so I rezzed Cory Edo’s latest gorgeous set for the Fameshed third anniversary and had a lovely evening taking photos and enjoying the breeze and waves. The set includes elements for a wedding including the lovely arch you see here (that comes with or without sash and flowers), lanterns and hanging baskets on poles to decorate the way, and chairs with texture change sashes (or can be used without).

A pretty summer dress from Ariadna Garrigus was the call for the day. The dress comes with a texture change HUD offering four versions, including a black and a taupe dress and two flowered versions. HauteCoutureDesign’s pretty little flats for the Tres Chic event include a texture change HUD to allow six colors and metal choice and fit the Slink flat foot. Maxi Gossamer is offering this cheerful necklace in a long and short version for Collabor88.

Alice Demonia has made this lovely full mesh hair for the Thrift Shop, which is priced at a discount as the exclusive piece for the event. It includes a very full HUD of colors (this was just the natural colors and I was amazed) and gorgeous textures. Sawsan Secretspy offered this absolutely lovely skin for Mother’s Day this weekend at a discount but it’s certain to still be found in her shop. Sawsan has appliers for nearly every mesh body part as well (like the Maitreya body and Slink feet I am wearing). What a beautiful beachy look for sweet Melissa.

A Dress is Never Just a Dress

The Black Fashion Fair is opening tomorrow and it’s 2 sims of a lot of black. Don’t infer this means a lot of goth or darkness (though there is a little of that going on too). Imagine more pieces that are elegant, charming, versatile. For example, this gorgeous gown from Mami Jewell will be her exclusive for the fair. With a great silhouette, a low cut back behind the halter bodice, her wonderful flexi skirts and gorgeous gold accents, this is elegance personified. With glittery black nails from Autumn Amaranth and an onyx stone in a mystical gold mounting from Plurabelle Laszlo, both from the fair and some stylish heels from Glamistry, featured at Kustom 9, this outfit shows how black is the epitome of elegance.
