Miss Applebum Collage

Hi Guys!  Here I am doing my second post and already at a loss for a title….SO….I decided to go with Miss Applebum, the name of this cute little dress by La Gazza Ladra. The owner and creator of La Gazza Ladra just happens to be the same owner of B!asta, a familiar name.  I am not sure why she wanted 2 stores, but I like what I am seeing thus far.  I picked this dress up at a previous sales event.  I remember it came in several colors, but I liked this one the best.  What I liked best about the dress was the sexy feel of it.  When I first saw it, I thought someone had missed something in post editing….and then I realized the skin showing in the hip area is supposed to be on purpose!  And then I loved it.  I liked the idea of an outfit that seemed to be made of several different pieces of cloth, loosely sewn together.  It was unusually hot here that day, and I thought that something like this would be SO cool and comfortable, not to mention….SEXY!

It is a mesh dress, but because of the wholes at the hips (front and back) it did not work with my Maitreya Mesh Body.  (Insert sad face here!  I am getting SO spoiled to not having to do all that tedious post editing!)  I have NO idea if it would work with another or not, but it would not work with Lara.  But I loved it enough, that I was willing to put my old SL body on and take pictures!  I will add here, that due to the nature of the dress, being made of several different pieces (so it seems) it was somewhat hard to find poses that did not make the dress look strange.  I have not found that to be a problem while wearing it around the grid and shopping, so I am sure it has something to do with static posing….but just thought I would let you guys know.)

This skin is from 7 Deadly S{k}ins.  It is amazing what a new skin, a new hair and a couple of accessories can do to change a girls look!  I have seen 7 Deadly S{k}ins at several of the sales events I go to each week and began to notice what nice skins they had a while back.  They have exceptional Group Gifts and several Gatchas, Camping chairs and always have a good sale going on right there in their store, not to mention at various sales events, including Hello Tuesday.

And speaking of Hello Tuesday, No.Match is also a participant and where I picked up this awesome hair.  It is incredible what bangs will do to change a girls looks!  ( If you are not familiar with Hello Tuesday, the stores are located outside of Cosmopolitan and they have some REALLY great sales, available on Tuesdays ONLY, of course.  To keep up with ALLLLL the sales, be sure and update your feeds with Seraphim.  I am not sure how a SL girl lives without it!)  No Match has some really nice styles and great textures.  They catch my eye every time!
