Last Days at the Beach

Well, this is it. Summer’s almost over. One more chance to get to the beach over Labor Day before the season ends.

Today it’s a beautiful day and an ideal opportunity for me to wear a skin I have always liked and admired from Miasnow. Its combination of photosourcing and hand drawing reveals a beautiful African-American woman. I find it hard to find darker skins that represent well in-world—I am not sure what everyone’s experience is. But this one is fantastic.

I am showing a swimsuit from Shiryu Musashi. Shiryu, a long time designer in SL, took a break from commerce for a while, pursuing other projects (including doing the fashion curating for the Rinascimento Virtuale show in Florence, Italy, last year). He is back and determined to get your Linden. This swimsuit is one of his newest offerings. With his careful use of prims and hand-drawn textures, it’s a refreshing change from the latest photosourced, painted-on swimsuits out there.

I discovered UZURI on a hunt for skins. Bella Bombast offers some terrific jewelry at her store—chunky and crafty. Her pieces are fashion statements by themselves and compliment many outfits.

Check out these fashionable wedges from Armidi Gisaci. The darlings of the fashion grid for a time, the group has established their business with a stellar website for shopping. (Every content creator on the grid is jealous—admit it). The textures are fabulous on these shoes, but they need to talk to their shoe makers—system toes are so 2008. Sculpty toes are where it’s at!
