Embracing me with two hands
Right will take you places
Yeah maybe to the beach - Song Lyrics to Evil (Interpol)
This dress could definitely take you places, including the beach. It doubles as the perfect bathing suit cover-up. Released by Y o K a n a, this little summer dress is unstructured, cool and comfy. It's a great choice for the soon-to-be blanket of humidity and heat that threatens to smother those of us on the east coast. It's a limited edition with only 25 being sold. I always love picking up a limited item, as there is less chance of running into your twin especially when you need to dress for an event. I like the crisp striped texture, deep v-cut back and asymmetrical hem. I've paired it with a favorite beaded look for my Slink Flat Feet, the Hypnotic Sandal by Sky Summerwind in red. These sandals are sexy and a great way to show off your pedicure. Leaving the house to run some errands I need something roomy and stylish to carry and the Rattan Beach Bag by Zenith fits the bill. I've loaded it with all the necessities plus some fun magazines for the beach later. The bag comes with a Texture Change HUD that allows you different choices for the scarf, sunglasses and magazines. I'm the kind of person that no matter how casual the event or how relaxed I am dressing I feel naked without some jewelry. I love this Beach Castaway Set from Maxi Gossamer. It comes with three different necklaces and includes a HUD that allows you to change bead colors. The earrings were purchased separately from the Beach Castaway Collection and they also offer the option of three different styles and a HUD to change bead colors. For the beach I've swept my hair up into a loose bun. This style by Sugarsmack called Paloma V2 is very appealing in the coco pudding color. Sugarsmack is a designer that is new to me but fast becoming a favorite. Her hair textures are sublime with natural streaks and detailed wisps and tendrils.
