Summer time in Second life what shall I wear - Tea Couturier Reporting …

Yes it is that time when we put away the Spring wear and start wearing our summer clothing but looking in the wardrobe you notice most of your things are either so last year or just not your style any more. So what does that mean I hear you ask? Well shopping time of course!!

 So if you’re not sure of what is hot and sizzling this summer never fear I will show you just a teaser of what I found and think is so summer 2013.

Firstly I found this lovely mesh mini dress which is available in denim and in plaid in different colors. I have chosen the red plaid dress as it would look so summery when accessorized. Pair either of the mini dresses up with cute western boots for that country flair, or with pumps for a more urban appeal. The dress is by Gizza and is priced at 250L

The Second outfit I came across which I liked was:

::ZED:: Summer Halter Mesh Dress, Small Diamonds; which is made from light weight cotton with a stunning summer like pattern on the material. This dress is a lovely addition to your summer wardrobe, something for those picnics, BBQ's or even hanging on the beach with friends. The Summer Halter Dress comes in 4 different pattern designs and a number of sizes for that perfect fit. This outfit also includes an attachable Zed Gem Brooch to finish of the dress. The Brooch is re sizable so you can have that individual look you are after.

This dress is by Zed Designz and is priced at 199L

Now we cannot leave the men out can we and I found this perfect summer outfit which would also work as 2 separate pieces. It is by Gizza and comes in 3 sizes rigged mesh the blazer includes an alpha for narrow pecs and another alpha for wide pecs. Priced at 350L, I think this looks smart yet still summery.

Also from Gizza are the rigged mesh Capris pants which can be paired up with the blazer and which also comes with shorts and a pair of default shoes. Priced at 300L

Ok I know most of my shopping is coming from Gizza but I could not walk away from this colourful summer outfit. With another summer wedding in second life to attend I needed something kind of smart but yet casual as it is a Midsummer style of wedding. I found this lovely dress called Popsy.

The Popsy Series is a colorful outfit for a colorful summer!  Yellow, green, purple, blue, black, with all parts of Pops you can play with to create different looks. Cute jacket, socks, hat, belt and lovely shoes, this outfit is complete, marrying all these summer colors. The cost of this outfit is 300L.

I finally left the Gizza store and headed to another well-known Second Life store called Redgrave.

Looking around the store I came across the awesome outfit for men which I feel you got a lot of bang for your buck and is such good value. This Liquid Mesh outfit includes a shirt + shorts combo coming in one piece, matching cool sneakers, sunglasses and some decent jewelry (necklace, armlet). The shirt has a very low neckline.

Liquid mesh clothes automatically follow your body shape. Be sure to feel comfortable in your leisure time. This outfit is priced at 350L

So with all the clothes I had bought, I really needed shoes. So found these cute SALLY non rigged, mesh Summer Wedges with realistic Skin Color Hud and Ankle Blender for a better result to match with your avatar skin. Resizable. Costing 100L only. It is by Hilly Haalan

Now JIM Designs by India-Ray have these lovely Mesh Beach Sandals with Texture Change
These high quality mesh sandals come with 12 textures. Includes an option for tinting stitching around the shoe.  These attach to your feet, staying locked with a small animation and script. 

They are non-rigged mesh, which means they can be adjusted to fit, and are resizable via the included hud, you can also tint your skin to find the closest match ( 2 base skins are included, white (ideal for very pale skins) and a skin base, which you can also tint, your glossy toe nails can also be tinted with the hud. Beach Sandals also have a Skin & Nail Hud. For only 100L now that is an amazing price

My Final stop for the day was at ArisAris and Armony 

Here I saw the Tango Version of the Chloe Outfit. It is a beautiful embroidered dress made ​​of high quality textures. The skirt comes with 4 mesh sizes with two alphas, for use with your shoes top loop sculpt prims. It not only causal but will go perfect with a nice summer hat to meet friends for lunch. This dress was priced at 250L

So just a few summer fashion ideas for you to start you off for the summer but as we ladies know this is just the beginning.


  1. Nice clothes... especially the cindy dress. I like it.. I just wonder.. Why don't they look happy with all their new pretties?
