Scheherazade

A friend of mine had his rez day recently and another friend threw a party for him with an Arabian Nights theme. Now I am not one to get into role play or even costume dress-up unless it’s something I am interested in. What we do for friends, right?

Anyway, the women’s Arabian-esque wardrobe options in SL left me frankly quaking in my boots—as one of my girlfriends says, it takes a lot to cover a girl up in SL! In my case, I needed two outfits to achieve comfort level that also fulfilled my diva attitude about fashion. The first is the Shahrazad by the talented Elvina Ewing. My sleeves, skirt veil and pants are all from the outfit. I am so impressed with the gauzy, glowing fabric of the sleeves and pants and the rich tailoring on the skirt. Gorgeous.

My top is from FallN Angel Creations and it won the shirt prize due to it’s delicate beading on the torso that also served to cover up a bit more Eliza! Well, that’s what made me look twice, anyway. That second look revealed beautiful texturing and sparkle, so this was a total win.

I just love the floaty feel of the leggings and sleeves as well as the tiny details on the knees and ankles.  And a more gorgeous Princess Jasmine-like hair than Elikatira’s Abbey I have never seen, so all in all it was the perfect combination. Sometimes it’s all about mixing and matching! All wardrobe drama aside, it was an evening of fun and friends and music from the amazing Samm Qendra. I hope you get a chance to hear this lovely lady sing sometime!

Here is the whole crowd:
