I have been looking forward to blogging this dress since I first saw it. I’ve been reading Jack McDevitt’s fantastic, world-hopping A Talent for War, and this dress makes me feel like a someone from a similarly unearthly, Fifth-Element-esque alien world. It is a partial-mesh dress, combining the best of both clothing-design worlds:
My fabulous orange shoes are from Indyra Originals. I have a few favorites in this outfit, but I particularly like this swooping, physical-law-defining hairstyle from Marleen Vaughan. Also a favorite are the Sonata Volta Time FFLEyes from Lera Keng. Both system and prim eyes are included. I went with the prim eyes so they could be made smaller as the system eyes were a bit too large, even the small size.
These are so detailed and creative, with classic time-keeping symbols and gears and even star symbols—take a closer look:
This is the hunt gift from Lera, but other colors, named after the sims and their builders, are available in her store on Zeit.

There is so much amazingness at Fashion For Life! I am not sure which is more fun, shopping for the clothes or looking for places on the awesome builds to take the photos. Zeit, built by Grace Loudon, has to be one of my favorite sims, with its retro colors and bright atmosphere…the filling station gacha building was a must have for today’s photo.
My dress today is a gorgeous partial-mesh creation from Miamai. I just love how designers are using mesh to fix that skirt prim-flap issue. Well done! I chose to wear it with my new favorite jacket in the world from Lapointe & Bastchild. I am so in love with the textures from this team, they are always detailed and flawless. And my tribute-to-Grease hairstyle is from Marleen Vaughan. Take that, Sandy!
And as if that weren’t enough! The FFL Meimei skin is giving me all kinds of chills with it’s smooth texture and creamy tone. I am wearing a tan overlay tattoo because it was a little bit on the pale side for me, but if you are looking for pale and gorgeous, Meimei is your girl! And I also love this intricately detailed jewelry set from WTG. And a shout out to my girl Maxi Gossamer, for her incredible mesh Swallow Wings lashes. I admit I was a bit skeptical when I first saw them, but I have seen the light!
