Bohemian Beauty

After a week of pulling some serious double shifts, I finally have a three day weekend, and none too soon, I might add! Unfortunately, with the E2 Vendor System having been down for the past few days and wreaking havoc on us shoppers, I’ve been a bit more behind in feeding my shopping addiction than I’ve wanted to be. Nevertheless, I was able to complete this Bohemian inspired outfit when Marilyn Magic of Tableau Vivant so kindly and quickly sent me the new gorgeous Summerwind Hair from Summerfest ’14 after my failed delivery.

I think the long, straight summer locks hang around the shoulders perfectly in contrast to the itsy bitsy shorts and halter from Tee*fy. Never fail jewelry from Zaara as well as these new sandals complete one of my favorite looks this year!

I can’t help but think of a tropical getaway while wearing this vibrantly colored mini dress from Liv-Glam.  It’s a semi-exclusive release for Designer Showcase and as with most Liv-Glam awesomeness, it features a HUD with six different color/texture options. (Psst… you can even purchase the sister design at the mainstore as part of Secret Wednesday!) To finished things off, I added some glam to my outfit with these new platform pumps, also by the crazy talented Sam Jones, as well as this adorable new floral headband by Glam Affair for the May round of Collabor88.

Liquid mesh is fast spreading across the grid and the Redgrave team has made their mark in those ranks with this new, ready-for-summer dress. First off, I love the one shoulder look of this piece and the draping to the waist that has a bit of Indian flair to it.

The HUD that comes with this dress has some crazy customization options. Not only can you change fabrics, but textures and patterns as well as colors that completely change the look and feel of each one. There is also a random color picker, as well, for some rather nifty results. Also new in this HUD, is an option to give the dress a neon glow, perfect for raves or nighttime parties.

And for those of you who are not familiar with Liquid Mesh, here’s the simple lowdown: Liquid mesh is rigged; however, it does adjust according to an avatar’s shape (within reason,) therefore eliminating the need for a standard size. Of course, liquid mesh isn’t without its faults, either. Without the use of an alpha layer, body parts will still likely poke through the mesh, but in using an alpha layer that is designed on one shape, you’ll undoubtedly find yourself with transparency issues in areas that are not covered by the mesh itself. There is still some debate on whether liquid mesh will have a future in SL, but in the meantime, I haven’t encountered too many faults with the pieces I have tried out in the past.

As for the rest of my outfit, I was trying to decide on what shoes to wear with the dress when I stumbled across these exclusive colored sandals from Hucci. I never seem to actually blog the shoes the day of the 21Shoe Event, but at least you guys can get an idea of some of the awesome releases that are exclusive to this event.
