First off as it was Sunday and you may not have seen it, please take a moment to do the POLL on how you use Search to find Stores in SL.
I had been paying close attention to releases at Persona lately, and one dress totaly captivated me, I was glad I ended up too busy to run over as Myllie Writer ended up releasing it in one of my favourite colours since the major release so off I ran.
When I got there though I was totaly sidetracked by all the wonderful items she has in her store and the one thing that just leapt off the wall was the Hippie Chic Tunic. I grabbed the Blue with glee and when I was taking the pictures I wasnt satisfied, I pined for more. So again I zoomed back and grabbed it in two more colours lol.
In RL I used to Manage a store that dealt primarily in imported Indian clothing and accessories for body and home, in the whole time I worked there I dont think I ever ever took home a full paycheck. When you live in a country as hot as mine can get you relish cheesecloth and various forms of cotton clothing. Indian styles too especially then were very 'In' and I dont think they ever really go out but it was definitely no longer Hippie wear here.
The tunic comes on all shirt layers and the system skirt is done so incredible well, with two sash options; One at the hips and one around the waist. The texture work on this is divine and so realistic you can just feel that scratchy at first cotton that gets softer and softer as you wear it to death.
The colours are fab and the price is awesome, I would love love love to see Myllie do this style in darker colours for nightwear. As you can see its adorable as a mini dress and sensational over any pants you favour.
Left pic: I am wearing the Kara hair by Aden Breyer and all three styles in this picture are from there, but OLDER styles and luckily Aden still has those at the locations Im slurling (hee hee is that a word).
The boots oh lordy those boots, I love them to death but they are tinted right now lol and yes badly I agree but you get the point of the look I was going for. The boots are by SF Designs and are the Yeti Fox boots, they are more of a Black/Yellow combo and just too much fun.
All the skins are Fleur and from left to right you have Paon 1, Chaton 1 and Aurora 3. All divine make-ups in the Bronzed tone.
Middle Pic: I am wearing the Tiffany hair by Aden Breyer, and this time went with capri pants by G.L.A.M which are from the Candy Apple Jeans pack that is probably not in store anymore as a lot was discontinued, but any of Chloris's denim would work well. The shoes in this pic are the cute little Green Ballet Flats and they are also from Persona in a pack of lots of colours and ONLY 1L wooohooo didn't see them on my firts trip but saw them when I returned for more Hippieness lol.
Right Pic: Hair again Aden Breyer is Kenzie 2 and I am so glad I bought this the other day as it just went perfectly with the Hippie Chic set, the way the hair is wrapped around from the middle part and gathered into a long pony is so elegant I adore it. The boots are the Fringe boots by ::69:: or Succubus whichever you want to call it, they are perfect fringe boots and work so harmoniously with this set I was completely smitten and of course thats when I needed mooooore.
Now for the other love from Persona, this is Helena. The first three pics left to right are how you get the set, the last two are how I put it together for the rest of the day. As soon as I saw this set I thought of Spain, and the fact that it came out in such a dinamic Burgundy just brought that image back more so.
The incredible deep red sash is heaven - look out for more on those *crosses fingers*. The stunning option of both floor length skirt and kneelength was inspirational, I love the mature statement of this set as it really is both Stylish and a Classic Must Have.
The prim work on not just the skirts but the cuffs and collar are delightful, Myllie is definitely talented when it comes to putting together such pieces- there is nothing more rewarding than when something floats so well and then is just seamless in its finish.
The shirts are now sold seperately in a range of colours as she was innundated with requests and you can see why, it is yummy. I couldnt help myself though I just had to show it with dress pants, and I tried on as many pairs as I could and only one store had the right height waist and front detailing -definitely would be more but I am refering to my inventory :P, but in a different shading so off I ran to get them in the right black needed.
They are the Monochrome Black pants from First Impressions by Pukk Abel, sold in a set of five colours with lowrise and high waist options for only 250L a steal, and the monochrome is only one of the packs available in these fabulous business styled seperates. The stunning versatility of the Helena is amazing.
The skin I am wearing is the lovely Michelle Skin by Damiani in Emerald Ruby Fair, I used sliders to remove the lipgloss to give the lipstick more of a matt finish, the tones available and the beautiful make-ups in this collection of skins are delish make sure you DEMO DEMO DEMO.
Hair left to rigth is Innocents by Here Comes Trouble (an older style, and still very glamorous) , KRC02 by booN which we know I just adore and really stands out in this fabulous daytime look of Helena.
The incredible New Charley hair by ETD made me run back and re-take the pics I already had for the pants look lol, couldnt resist it was just perfect, the hat is click to change colours and so many to choose from.
The shoes are the yummy Verve heels by Maitreya that come in an incredible assortment of colours and have both black or tan sole options. The stockings you can see barely are seamed and part of the Helena set.
Also I need to point out that Persona has some incredible Freebies in the store, not only the ballet flats for 1L but there are two packs of stands and flying animations for free and the stands are animated so you have wonderful movement from stand to stand PERFECT for creating a new AO or your first.
Also Myllie Writer and Annah Whitfield own together ANIMAH a poses and animations store at another location which you definitely need to check out also, I am using one or two poses/stands in these pics. I hope you loved Hippie Chic and Helena as much as I do and get on over there asap and check out all the other wonderful pieces Myllie has to offer.
