The Laughing Academy has a lovely new gown – Lysandra. Take a look.
The details are lovely – the little ruffly ribbons at the sleeves, bosom, hips, and back (derriere); little dark brown rosettes, a sculpty bustle skirt, and a prim underskirt with so many subtle colors that it was a challenge to GIMP. I should have just scrapped the whole composite idea and gone back inworld to shoot it on location. Trust me, the above pictures do *not* do it justice.
And, befitting a dress of this quality, you get *options* – you can wear just the lovely bone colored corset – with or without the chest ruffle (which also comes with multiple attachment points), and with or without the off shoulder sleeves. You can wear the sleeveless jacket – with or without the off shoulder sleeves. Or you can wear the long-sleeved jacket with the sleeve prims made especially for this option. The corset, sleeveless jacket and long-sleeved jacket are wearable on all layers, too.
Lysandra does not come with shoes, but I found these Dirty and Old Victorian Court Shoes (hey, I’m not judging – that’s the *actual* name lol) for only L$50 at the Laughing Academy. I’ve put one of the shoes against a backdrop of the textures of the skirt so you can get a better, unadulterated view of all the textures involved in this multilayered, multitextured design.
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, lovin’ (^ ^), etc. *mwah*!
