Vintage Dreams for Summer

Keats might have made much of Autumn in England with his “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”, but Summer has always been a bit of a joke.  No change this year although we can still hope…

Perhaps that’s why I went on a flight of fancy to Hawaii for the new store gift.  Just the mention of it can conjure up endless sunshine and bright smiles.  ‘The Garden of the Gods’ at Keahiakawelo,  Humpback whales on the shores of Maui, the beaches along the Coconut Coast.   It’s a veritable surfer’s paradise with its deep blue waters.

So to accompany this fantasy, here is your essential summer beachwear, a mesh all-in-one swimsuit in sky-blue polka dots with the “Aloha” design.  It comes in 2 sizes with an alpha for standard avatars, but as you can see from above it works with the Slink avatar.  I had to wear a size bigger than I usually do, and make a tiny tweak on the saddle measurements but it worked perfectly with the Slink body alpha tabs.

I have also included matching blue foot wraps to stop your tootsies getting burned on those sun-baked beaches.  They are designed to work with the Slink High feet.

Styling: Slink body, hands and feet/ Genesis Lara Head/Hair – *Alice Project* Quintessa/Artilleri/ Clubmaster sunglasses /Jewelery – Two Sisters Treasures Seahorse in Lace

*Other news:

We have a “freebies section” in the downstairs store now, on the same wall as the group gift.  I have put out some old stock that is no longer for sale, so if you know anyone who is new to SL and would like a bit of glamour, then point them to the store!

Happy Summer Days everyone! xx
