Garden Party is a spring dress sure to captivate your heart as we finally think about packing away the bulky winter sweaters and celebrate the soft bright colours of life finding their way back to our world.
Garden Parties began in the late Victorian era. Summers would find owners of large estates transforming the garden area into beautiful areas filled with lanterns, soft music, long buffet tables with tasty and light fares, and beautiful unexpected seating for an open air event allowing everyone to completely relax. It was considered quite the social event with the socially elite dressing to impress and certainly .. an occasion for hats!! Along with the traditional games of lawn bowling and tennis, men and women engaged in the art of "flirting"
Today's Garden Parties are much more relaxed and can take place anywhere, but it is still such fun and oh so fashionable to be invited to one that attempts to recapture that Victorian elegance. Kimmera Madison pays a playful hommage to that garden party with an extremely flirty and fun version. You will adore how this skirt moves and bounces as you walk. The details on the crinolines are so very pretty. Done in a soft cooler pink with just a hint of underlying purple, the dress fits tight through the bodice, accented with a contrasting green belt and then ruffles in soft folds over the stiffer crinolines. Both skirt and crinolines move as you walk. Kimmera has topped it off with a cute, folded back, wide brimmed straw hat with both ruffles and a large contrasting white bow on the back. This makes the hat super easy to wear without sacrificing your hairstyle - covering a myriad of problems normally associated with hats in SL.
I have complimented the outfit with a simple pink heart jewellery set and cute heels and ankle socks. Simple but effective!
