Today I was thinking about the hot sauce that I see around in restaurants—that thick red sauce in a huge squeeze bottle with the rooster on the front. It’s vaguely Thai or Vietnamese and a little is more than enough.
Vlinder Reitveld, who spends half her life travelling around Asia and the other half bringing it to SL, makes this Vietnamese dress pretty hot with her sparkling red textures and attention to detail. Notice the sculpty mandarin-style collar, the jewels that come off the top of the skirt onto the tummy, and the great prim overlay coming off the halter top (shown below, though not above).
I show the dress with a stunning makeup from Tuli Asturias’ new Eva line and a great ponytail from Falastear Aeon that I have been waiting to use and have finally found the best place.
These great little shoes were one of Vlinder’s offerings for the RFL Clothing Fair. I see she now has them in a Midnight Mania board at her shop—tap that board. I really love their kitten heel silhouette and Asian brocade texture. (Why can’t I find more kitten heels in SL?) I would love to see Vlinder make more colors.
Just a little heat, a little kick:
