I put on the first Layniewear outfit and squeed! I’m infamous IRL for my love of sweetheart necklines and these are beautiful.
I like Elaine’s flower print and the band at the bottom tying the skirt to the top.
Elise also has the band on the top. All three dresses come with both prim and system skirts.
I’m also wearing the Charmed: Initially Yours Talisman. It comes copy/mod in a full A-Z set.
The Spinning Earth orb ring from ~Aries Celestial Designs~ is nicely detailed and for once a script is appropriate. I can sit and stare at it.
TaP Blue Office Fling Slingbacks. Tete a Pied, shoes. What else is there to say?
Of course I love purple but I also love the design on the bottom of the Vanessa skirt.
I’m wearing the EJM: Gold Amethyst Swing Drop Set with it. Elexor does very delicate work. I love the unusual shape and the balance.
TaP Purple Satin Slingbacks. Another *must have* Great prim work, fabulous textures. About what you would expect. 😉
Last is Piratewear. I added the Teagan Long Brocade Grey corset. The pants can also work as underwear or swimwear. The lace on the skirt adds a nice touch. All I need is a sword and a whip :->
I’m also wearing the Charmed: Chaos Beads earrings and bracelet, and logo necklace from the Unbirthday folder. I love the funky Chaos beads. I was going to go get a necklace I saw on someone else when I found out it was on the underwear layer. *pout*

LaynieWear isn’t a designer I’ve tried before but I have a corset fetish and a thing for velvet and tapestry so her recent designs intrigued me.
The corsets come with a white gathered blouse on both shirt and underwear layers while the corset is on the jacket layer.
The impressed velvet on the short violet corset has nice depth and almost invisible seams. I was kind of afraid that the split would look weird on me. Unlike most fashion-avs, mine is short and has a bit of a tummy and not everything (particularly from the old Dazzle line) looks good on her. It’s not something you hear much about because it doesn’t come up as much. Everything always fits and people tend to mod their shapes so it looks good. I don’t because I’m lazy lol and forget to put the shape on the next time I wear it. Even the “no butt” one for mesh skirts. Anyway. No weirdness and the split shows off the belly ring as I’m sure it was meant to.
The Teagan long brocade corset in white also has a split and no weirdness. I like the nice thick straps on both of these, they look like they really could give you some support if you needed it, plus bringing the pattern up to your shoulders. A common problem with corsets from new designers is that they tend to be overly square at the bust, neck and shoulder areas. The human frame doesn’t allow for this in real life so it ruins the illusion. These are beautifully curved the way you’d want your real life corset to look. The corset does have some issues at the seams but you have to zoom in to see them. A freebie pack sent out to the FashCon list on St. Patrick’s Day included the green top which is cute under the corset and brings in some color.
I should add that I’m wearing a Calla hair in their new Relay for Life texture. They have a pack with the texture plus tips for several hairs up for $200L.
