Happy Holidays All!
I absolutely adore the traditional style cocktail party. The one with several types of featured cocktails and well thought out appetizers. The kind of party where guests gather in small groups and make their way around the room, chatting and mingling. It's the kind of party where you could come even for an hour to make an appearance and everyone would know you were there. Unfortunately throwing a good cocktail party seems to be a dying art. It's only around the holidays where I see some hope and I hang onto it diligently for the rest of the year. That's why in Second Life I love to receive an invitation to a cocktail party! On SL there is the mingling and chatting I long for while holding a long stem glass and always with such interesting people from around the world. So when I received an invite to a holiday cocktail party from a friend I was delighted to attend. What to wear? I thought as I strolled into the dream walk-in closet I created on SL. The one I will never be able to afford in RL lol.
I decided on something that looked fantastic even getting to the party. This beaded dress and fur jacket from Prism was just the thing. The "Remi Beaded Cocktail Dress" comes in a variety of colors and is available in fatpacks. I'm wearing the Sage Green. It comes in the traditional sizes of Fitmesh with an alpha as well as versions for the Maitreya, Belleza and Slink Mesh bodies. I'm wearing the Belleza version in the photos. The very deep cowl neckline drapes beautifully in the front and back. It dips down daringly and will definitely have heads turning in your direction. Of course it's cold out this time of year so slipping into the warm fur jacket that comes with it was perfect! The "Remi Beaded Cocktail Dress with Fur Jacket" by Prism is available now at Designer Showcase.
With the dress I chose to wear the "Azken Heels" by Loovus. These heels have peek-a-boo side panels and laced up ankles. They come in a variety of colors and I suggest if it's within your budget you purchase a fatpack of these lovely shoes as they are something you will wear with everything from jeans to your power suits. They are offered in Slink, Maitreya and Belleza versions. The Azken Heels by Loovus are available now at this round of Designer Showcase.
If you follow my blog then you know I've been having fun playing with different mesh heads and finding out which skins go best with each. I do really enjoy the way the mesh heads photograph and so for blogging purposes I see no reason not to use them and enjoy the different looks. The one I'm wearing today is from Eye Candi and it's called, "Brooklyn". Now that I'm getting used to mesh heads I can't wait to try the Bento versions. Finally I'll be able to have a mesh head that looks like me! Unfortunately since many still do not have updated viewers it will be some time before they are accepted in the modeling world on the runway. Getting ready for my party I realized I needed to spice up my look with some jewelry so I turned to Moondance Boutique I found just what I was looking for in the "Eileen Necklace, Earrings and Ring". This set is available for the remainder of today as part of the Candy Cane 8 Hunt. The HUD allows plenty of choices for the metal and opal cabochons. My hair is the lovely side parted bob from Vanity Hair called, "Miss Coco".
Last but not least I chose "Christmas Nail Applier" from IP Nails, which features a palette of silver, gold and red with green. I've included a photo of the HUD so you can see the choices available for you. The nails are available in Maitreya, Slink and Omega appliers. It's available as a fatpack with all three options for only $120L at the Premium Only Event until January 7th. I was pretty pleased with the final look and am all ready to head to the cocktail party. I stopped outside for a few quick photos against the snowy backdrop of the Liebe Sim.
As I stepped out of sight I called out, "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and to all a good night!"
