Strapped

It amazes me how Salt of Salt & Pepper can take a pile of straps and turn it into a glorious garment. While her signature harnesses are always beautiful, the addition of this super tight pencil skirt made from leather and buckles left me with my jaw hanging low. These are just a few of the items that you can put together from her gacha goodies at the current round of Romp. Underneath the skirt I am wearing panties, a garter and stockings, plus there is a full skirt also available. Each piece comes in several colours, so make sure you break open your piggy bank before trying your luck.

I’m pretty sure you’ll end up strapped for cash, because you will want them all.

Thorn Of The Rose

Last chance alert! The Liaison Collaborative closes soon – as in today. If you haven’t been yet, do hurry; it’s a fabulous round. Among the goodies are the NO.PRESSURE hair from NO.MATCH, one of my favourites. You can also find a couple of wonderful pose series by CORPUS. I am using Against The Wall for these photos, but Sizzle is perfect for those sexy summer shots.

These items came together to compliment the star of my post, the Anouk gown from Salt & Pepper. This stunner is coming to Mesh Body Addicts Fair, which opens on August 1st. I couldn’t decide which side to highlight, so I shot both the front and back. The texturing has to be seen to truly appreciate; it goes from a lovely opaque design on the bodice to a slightly sheer fabric across the tummy then back to full coverage for the sleek skirt. Then you have the deep cuts on the sides with exquisite strings tying it together.

Oh, So French

Bonsoir et ooh la la, mes amis! Despite three years of high school French, that is about all you will get from me in the way of français. The title was inspired by the Paris lingerie by Salt & Pepper for the July round of Mesh Body Addicts. This lingerie has a very nostalgic feel and is uber sexy, yet demure. The tight ponytail from TETRA out of the July Luxe Box works beautifully with the look and feel and the Orangery by Scarlet Creative, also from Luxe Box, is the ideal setting.

There was a lot more to the setting of this photo, but as is so often the case, it was lost on the cutting room floor. Had I just plopped down the build, shoved in the bench and flounced onto it, I would have gotten done a lot more quickly. But then I wouldn’t have had the luxury of feeling like a French girl for an afternoon.

C’est tellement français
