Beachin’ on Independence Day

For this July 4th, I’m trotting out an old favorite.  Why?  Because it’s patriotic, it’s better looking than others I’ve had the chance to shop for — and when better than the Fourth of July to serve up a little cheesecake (grin)?

Happy 236th Birthday, United States!

Fashion Review — Bikinis by Musashi-do

Shiryu Musashi (of Milan), the owner of Musashi-do, dropped a box of bikinis on me recently, and I gave some of them a test run.  Shiryu’s been studying at a fashion academy in addition to his in-world work, and I think the product, here and in some smashing dresses he has, show the effects of that study.

These are my six best photos from my session.  Notice, by the way, picture 3 (the last on the top row).  No, I didn’t make a mistake there; those are tan lines.  This series includes “garments” that simulate tan lines at three different levels of intensity.  Each different package also includes all the layers you could possibly desire for any situation, as well as any needed “hardware,” such as rings, laces, etc.  This was the one problem I had, the rings on the first bikini needed to be tweaked into position — a not uncommon situation, though.  (Do note, however, that the ring on the top in the Seaside Crescent series uses an attachment point sometimes used by necklaces.  You may need to work around this, depending on what jewelry you wear.)

Each bikini style comes in a variety of print colors, and also in solids, as you can tell from just the small sample I put here.  I think my favorite out of the batch might have been picture 5, but I also like No. 6 as well.  Ah, joy; more  and more in the inventory….  When will I ever get it cleared out, what with all the good stuff I have in there, like these bikinis…?

Teleport to Musashi-do here, and enjoy your time at the beach!

Summer Breeze

Summertime, and the fashion is easy, and sometimes a touch more seductive.  I love crossover halter tops like this one from Connors; paired with a casual pair of jeans, it makes for an excellent combination.
