Happiest of weekend greetings, dear friends! This is quickie (rawr) to get the word out for the dear and lovely Deesselle, who designs skins, eyes and more for her brand DS’ELLES. The skin I’m wearing in my look today is available as part of the Fifty5 Thursdays weekly sale event, which is brand new to me; I’d honestly never heard of it until Deesselle sent me the notecard! A huge number of stores put out special items for sale from L$55 to L$100, and the offering from DS’ELLES is a special edition Mathilde skin in the Colorado skintone, which is a perfect golden-tan that makes you look like you’ve just vacationed for a week in the French Riviera. It may be found at the mainstore for just L$99, but only through Sunday!

I’m also wearing a fabulous bikini and dress set from Angel’s Designs for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, and I was truly impressed when I slipped it on and it fit perfectly. Fitmesh for the Maitreya Lara body is still experimental, so designers always recommend trying demos to ensure that their items fit as intended, and I’ve found a few times where the standard size version of a fitted mesh item was still a better option for me. But a hearty “well done” to Angel’s Designs for their work, as the bikini fits beautifully and the lovely lace dress just skims over top so nicely. Perfect for a stroll on the beach!

Speaking of summery pursuits, I’m off to enjoy my sunny Saturday. Sending lots of love and wishes for a marvelous weekend to to all! ♥
