It's a beautiful Sunday here and the last evening for the Chinese Lantern Festival. This fun and festive event is something our family gathers for followed by meeting up afterward at a favorite restaurant for some tasty Chinese food. If you are ever in this area during this event don't miss it! You can get a taste for what it's like here: Chinese Lantern Festival. I'm dressed to go in a fantastically feminine sundress by Entice called, "The Greatest Dress" available now at Designer Showcase. I grabbed the fatpack which comes with two exclusive colors loaded into the convenient HUD. I chose one of the exclusive options for my outfit. It's a wonderful print of ferns in colors of green with tropical flowers in tones of pink. I fell in love with the very high cut side and the shoulder ties, perfect touches of femininity. It's offered in versions for all the popular mesh bodies. The bag I'm carrying is an amazing match and the reason is because it's the "Grace Purse" by Petit Chat. It is offered in several base colors, I'm holding the grey, each coming with a HUD that allows you to change the various parts of the bag. I've included a photo of the HUD below so you can see the many options. This allowed me to really customize the look of it and I was very pleased with the end result.
I have to say that I've always been a hat girl. I found a great one to accompany the dress in the "Cherry Hat" by Petit Chat. This hat comes with eight choices for the hat itself as well as eight choices for the hat band. The ruffled brim is fun and flirty with the perfect touch coming from the delightful cherries all around the band. I've included the HUD below so you can see the different selections you have for colors. When you first attach your hat it does sit further back on the head then you see here but it was easy for me to reposition a bit more forward and at a tilt which, is how I like to wear my hats. I also read Trinity Yazimoto's notecard on how to customize the wonderful pieces she designs and so I did darken the cherries and the cherry leaves by following her instructions. I am also wearing "Coins Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings" by Meva. These bold pieces are made up of thick gold rings in multiple strands with decorative coins hanging from the last strand. As always Meva does a fabulous job of texturing so the gold looks rich and lovely. It's not a new set but it remains one of my favorites.
These great laced-up heels called, "Marith Heels" by KC Couture are available now at this round of Designer Showcase. They have the usual HUD allowing you to change each part of the shoe to your liking. I've chosen to keep it one color today but the options are endless. They are available in versions for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic feet.
Last but not least to complete my look I chose the "Nightshade" nail appliers by IP Nails available now at SWANK. I've included a photo below that allows you to see the color options available to you as well as to see the different versions you can purchase. I always try to purchase the fatpack if it's offered so you can always wear your lovely manicure and pedicure with any of your mesh bodies, hands or feet.
Before leaving for the festival I stopped off for some ice cream at a cute little parlor on the Sim "CafeBar" but at the last minute I chose a cherry ice which was delicious and less calories. I enjoyed my treat while I explored a little until it was time to go. Until next time make sure you are allowing yourself some treats!
