Shine Bright Like a Diamond

S&B have a lovely showing this month at the Fitmesh Designer Expose, so make sure to snap them up before it finishes in just a couple of days!

The Deep Cleavage Tunic comes with 6 different patterns on a HUD, and certainly lives up to its name.



I did have to alpha out some of the shoulders (Maitreya) but that's not unusual with any tops due to moving in ways the mesh has problems with. 

Dress sizes:
- 5 Classic Mesh
- 5 Fitmesh
- Maitreya
- Belleza
- Slink (physique)

Also includes an alpha for system bodies. 



What I'm Wearing:
Dress:

Shoes:
-KC- Seattle Pumps

Truth Hair - Solace
Makeup:
ATIA - Flame Wet Lip Tattoo
Mesh Body: 
Maitreya Lara
Skin:

This classy LBD is another S&B classic. The Tight Micro Mini Dress Bling is not talking of the old fashioned SL bling, but the beautiful 3 designs on the HUD for this dress. They are perfect for a big party or even NYE!




No alpha-ing needed, although it does have one for system bodies. 

Dress Sizes:
- 5 classic sizes
- Maitreya
- Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
- Slink Physique & Hourglass
- TMP

Risque Fashion

FDE has the awesome GeMyles back again with some rather risque items!

First up is the Kylia Outfit which includes a top, skirt, and high, high heels. 


Be warned though, that despite my slight airbrushing, this outfit is completely see through! Also, if you use Maitreya, remember the irksome problem of worn items not showing through clothing with an alpha layer active. This means if you wear panties with Maitreya, there's a good chance they'll be rendered invisible! Other mesh bodies don't seem to have the same problem. 

This outfit comes with GeMyles 32 colour HUD which with one click changes all 3 pieces! Colour co-ordinating is too easy. 

Sizes:
Top & Skirt - 
- Maitreya
- TMP
- Slink Physique
- Slink Hourglass
Shoes - 
- Maitreya
- Slink Physique & Hourglass
- Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus


What I'm Wearing:
Top & Skirt:  
GeMyles - Kylia Leather & Lace Outfit (from FDE)
Shoes:
GeMyles - Taylor High Heels (included in outfit)
Hair: 
no.match - no.surrender (from Hair Fair 2017)
Jewellery:
:*:CPD:*: Drops of Sapphire Belly Ring
Makeup:
R.icielli - Lipstick 02/15
Mesh Body: 
Maitreya Lara
Skin: 
WoW Skins - Irina 2016 Tan
Eyes:
Arise - Beba Eyes - Gold 


The other highly risque pieces I matched together were the GeMyles Latisha Outfit and the Felisse Boots. 


You're seeing correctly, that lovely body net does come with a bra, but no panties! Refer above to any Maitreya pantie problems that are worn/applier instead of mesh ones. 

The shoes and the outfit come with the 32 colour GeMyles HUD. 

Sizes:
Top & Swimsuit - 
- 5 classic sizes 
- 5 fitmesh sizes
- Maitreya
- Slink Physique & Hourglass
- Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Wiggin' Out

The Hair Fair is on again! It's a great event to support Wigs For Kids, who ensure kids who lose hair via chemotherapy, Alopecia or other problems, have the opportunity to feel normal again. 
This year we have a ton of stores nestled in their own thatched cottage. It's like an enormous 4 sim English town (where all the homes look identical). 

It's great to see a good range too, with all sorts of styles, shapes and nationalities. I've seen African, and Asian styles along with Hipster to Hippy to Hedonistic. 



This hair from adoness comes in a dollarbie gift with 2 other hairs. No HUDS. Nice little sample pack.

What I'm Wearing:
Hair:
adoness - thalassa ALOHA Mermaid (dollarbie at Hair Fair 2017)
Top:  
*Shae's Torie Tanks Purple
Mesh Body: 
Maitreya Lara
Skin: 
WoW Skins - Irina Tan 2016
Eyes:
Arise - Beba Eyes - Gold 




There's more free gifts than I actually expected, and some of them are top notch quality. Those mean you're more likely to wear them and remember that store when you go hair shopping in future. 




This hair from No Match comes with the Unicorn HUD and the hair is tintable (yes it's tinted blue here). I love tintable hair. ♥

What I'm Wearing:
Hair:
No Match - No Pressure (gift at Hair Fair 2017)

Makeup:
Atia - Charcoal Eye Shadow
Mesh Body: 
Maitreya Lara
Skin: 
WoW Skins - Irina Tan 2016
Eyes:
Arise - Beba Eyes - Gold 




There's 4 sims to get around so don't be surprised if it takes more than a day! Remember that every purchase at the Hair Fair goes to a great cause to help kids. 


I love Exile and this free gift was too good to miss. It comes with ALL the HUDs and colours, and includes both female and male hair. 


What I'm Wearing:
Hair:
Exile - Evie (gift at Hair Fair 2017)
Dress:  
!:LL:! Maddison Dress
Makeup:
Atia - Charcoal Eye Shadow

Hair Fair is on until July 16th. Have a preview HERE but it does not show all the free gifts.

REMEMBER to buy a bandana! 100% of funds raised from the bandanas go to Wigs For Kids.

Hawaiian Luau with YoKana

A new month at the Fitmesh Designers Expose in the middle of the seasons! It's July already (where did this year go??) and let's see what YoKana have for us!

The Hawaiian outfit is available in parts (so you can grab what parts you love).



Strangely for our mesh body world, the Hawaiian Top & HUD comes in only one fitmesh size. However, I had no problems with the fit on my Maitreya body  and only a couple of alpha clicks were needed. The HUD includes 8 different tropical designs.

The wraparound Pareo Skirt & HUD has 8 colours and comes in sizes for:
- Maitreya Lara
- Slink Physique
- Slink Hourglass
- Belleza Freya
- Belleza Isis
- Belleza Venus

Be warned, however, that you will need your own pair of undies or bikini bottoms to wear underneath. I used the default ones that come with the Maitreya body and have a cute bow on the hip. 


The shoes are YKs Summer Wedges available in 8 different colours sold separately. The colours match perfectly with the skirt and top. Sizes for Maitreya and Slink mids.  

It's a great little outfit for anything tropical, including sunbathing, picnics or barbeques. 


What I'm Wearing:
Top:  
YK - Hawaiian Top & Hud
Skirt:
YK - Pareo Skirt & Hud
Panties:
Maitreya Mesh Body - Lara Mesh Panties
Shoes:
YK - Summer Wedge Red
Hair:

Makeup:
