Tres Blah released the lovely Ella dress for the April round of Collabor88 and I was lucky enough to win a fatpack! Designer Julliette Westerberg gave away 3 fatpacks to residents who liked and shared her FB post about the new release. Thanks so much, Julliette, it’s very generous of you! I had been struggling to decide which colour to buy, especially since I really liked the striped seersucker pink and blue which are only in the fatpack! There are 16 colours to choose from individually, and if you purchase the fatpack you get 10 more colours! The dress also includes underpants to preserve your modesty.
Since I had so many to choose from in the fatpack, I decided to make 2 looks showing how one dress can fit very different styles. On the left I went for a dark and edgy look and on the right a much softer style in shades of pink.
For the more gothic style I added the Ingenue Anna heels in Noir, which are also available at this month’s Collabor88 (12 colours, L$188 each) and on the right I picked up a former Ingenue gacha on the marketplace, these are the Carmen wedgese in blush. Likewise I bought both the handbags on the marketplace, they are former gachas from Zenith. The Leather bone handbag in grey from the Halloween dressing gacha is styled with the black dress, and the Spring rattan handbag in pink with the striped dress.
I finally made it back to the sale at Truth Hair (70% off!) and purchased the 2 styles above, on the left is Parker, which comes with or without a baseball cap, and has lots of styling options. On the right is Apple, which comes with the updo seen here, and a half updo, also with lots of options to change the bangs, wisps etc. I bought both in Multitone1 pack which I like because it has a great selection, whether you want to be a blonde, brunette, redhead, or have black or grey hair on a given day, the choices are there. With the sale the Multitone packs are L$120 which is a great deal. The sale runs til April 14th.
It’s all in the details and I chose jewellery from Yummy to complete both looks. On the left, the Enamel rose choker and earrings, which is hud enabled with 3 metals, 6 gem colours, and 6 rose colours, plus a multicolour rose option. Although they are are hard to see in the picture above, I also chose the Minimalist rings for the pink look.
On the right, I went with the Bang Bang choker from Yummy, this multilayer necklace has 4 metals and 6 gem colours in the hud. I added the Art Deco rings which also have 3 metal options and 8 gem options.
For skin and makeup, I went light on the soft look with my favourite Pink Fuel Emiri skin #16 (rare) in the crystal tone, with no added makeup. On the right I chose Glam Affair Mimi in tone 3 and layered on the Moody eyeshadow and lipstick appliers from Nylon Outfitters. I also grabbed the Shades of Red nail appliers from [Encore] on the marketplace since I wanted a deeper red than my Maitreya hud includes.
Phew! That was a lot. If you read this and make it this far, thanks. All poses are my own, non bento poses. I’m working on making a bunch of new bento poses which is fun but very time consuming.
