Look #256: Nothing Beats a Beautiful Gown


It's always great to have some beautiful gowns in the inventory and I recently found a store that has so many beautiful gowns that I wanted to buy everything in the store.  The store is called Wild Orchid and I am featuring one of the gowns that I purchased there.

I love vintage and classic styles and I also love lace so I fell in love with the Signature Gown as soon as I saw it. The bodice is made up of lovely intricate lace that goes down the side and the back of the gown. 


The main part of the dress is put on via an applier HUD for mesh bodies that has options for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink and Lolas and a TMP applier HUD. There are also system layers for standard avatars.

There are two versions for the system layers or that can be selected from the applier HUD. The frist version has a long sleeved bolero jacket and the other version is without the jacket. A few extras included are a choker necklace, a chest decoration and a brooch to wear with the jacket.


 The look of the lace on the bodice can also be changed by selected "Mask Mode" in the section for layers in the HUD for whatever mesh body you have.  I have Maitreya so I am showing that here.  With the Mask Mode selected the lace is darker than if Mask Mode is not selected.

The Signature Gown also includes a skirt panel in both ankle and calf length;  left, right, and middle flexis both in resizer versions and no script versions. This gown also has a attachable train so it can be worn either with or without the train.  I think there is going to be a lot more ballroom dancing in my future with such a beautiful gown to wear!


The nails I am wearing are a Jerky Turkey Hunt item from Tashi.  The Grape Fizz Nails are a pretty collection of five solid colors that includes purple, two shades of pink, black and a light shimmery lilac.  The applier HUD is for Slink hands


The Jerky Turkey Hunt

That turkey, he's so jerky!  Running around SL throwing feathers around, knocking stuff down, being loud and obnoxious-it's time to hunt him and bring it to a stop!  Fantastic designers are having their stores littered by this turkey-Find the orange feathers at each store and get a gobbling gaggle of gifts!
Nov. 3rd-30th!
