it seems like summer 2012 is fading fast — august really went by in a blur && september is *right* around the corner. and while i know summer doesn’t officially end until the latter part of next month, it always feels like summer is over when august ends.
…which was the perfect excuse to break out a bikini. y’know, one last time before summer ends.
the top i’m wearing here over the swimsuit is from cold logic && in case you’ve not heard, the entire store is set to *50%* for the next few days. i visited, i grabbed a few things i’ve had my eye on, and i saved myself a good chunk of lindens. and this top was a definite surprise — when i demo’d, i wasn’t expecting the sweeping criss-cross back. it made it perfect for a bathing suit cover up, but i can totally see wearing it with jeans or shorts for a cute, breezy look.
and the swimsuit..
it is *mesh* and it is free from sakide for the pink ribbon fair hunt. the pink ribbon fair itself is for a wonderful cause (one that’s dear to my heart — for the american cancer society) && sakide has several offerings there including a suuuuuuper sexy baby pink latex outfit(!), but this set of *four* mesh bikinis is out at the mainstore for hunting. go grab it while you can! you only have until august 25th to do so!
but with bikinis, come skin. lots of skin. so i figured it only fitting to show off a new candydoll skin while soaking up some last minute summer sun.
this miranda face from candydoll (seen above in all base makeups) is *stunning*. i always like rebeca dembo’s skins, but this one…. there’s something different about her that i am seriously loving. i think she suits my shape pretty perfectly — the face is soft and pretty && the makeups range from subtle to bold.
but that’s not all…
beyond having four tones to pick from (latte, as i’m wearing above, as well as cream, caramel and choco), and having hairbase options and varying cup sizes… there are *also* fourteen lip color tattoos for lots of mixing and matching.
i am only showing but a small sample here of the possibilities, but there are the seven essential lipsticks && the seven extra lipsticks available so you can pair your favorite eye shadow and your favorite lip at once. each lip also comes with or without teeth (the teeth versions are shown above on the cream and choco skintones) and offers a *ton* of possibilities~
sales, new skins and one very sexy set of bikinis. i’d say it’s worth it to push that summery feeling all the way to the end, what say you? ;)
