A MichaMi Summer

24 06 2009

Swimsuit season is upon us, both in rl and in sl, and nowhere is this more evident than in the newest releases from MichaMi.  The beautiful and talented Milla Michinaga has designed two very sexy swimsuits just in time to hop in the pool or laze around the beach.  One is a bikini, and the other, a one-piece–a stunning one-piece that immediately caught my eye. I raced over to MichaMi and stood there for at least ten minutes trying to decide which color of Yolanda to buy.  I loved most of them, but decided one new swimsuit was probably enough.  So after agonizing for awhile, I picked out Yolanda in Cream.

I couldn’t wait to put this sexy swimsuit on, and I was not disappointed.  I love, love, love the design on this.  It’s sexy and sophisticated, with some sheer parts and some not, and the little-bitty bottoms are very cute.  I decided to take this swimsuit out for a dip in the ocean and headed out of my skybox studio to check out the sim below; the beautiful Mirabella.

Mirabella is a quaint little sim with houses and palm-tree-lined streets. MDR has its own little stretch of beach down there, and I snapped a few of these photos in the little red boat we have on the shore.  I went for a sort of easy-going casual with this look and just added the Willow hair by ETD and some bangles by ::Exodi::.  Speaking of which, the skin I’m wearing here is the Shiloh (honey) in coconut, one of the skins Ryker Beck sent over in the review pack.  I never expected to wear coconut, but it’s a lovely skin, and it went with this suit perfectly.

I sent Milla Michinaga a notecard to tell her how much I liked the design on this suit, and she was kind enough to send me a review pack with all of the colors.  I was so excited, I had to photograph two more looks.

For the purple version of Yolanda, I decided to go all glamourous and paired it with the windswept Model Hair 02 from ::69::.  For even more drama, I added my newest purchase from Earthstones: the special RFL item Karuka in Silver/Amethyst.

This set came in two parts, earrings and necklace, and bracelet and ring.  I bought both, and I’m just in awe of the talent of Abraxxa Anatine; she continually makes the most stunning jewelry sets I’ve seen on the grid.  I shot these photos on one of the docks on Mirabella, and I have to say it really is a cute little SIM.  You should check it out.  I think there might even be a few spaces left if you’re looking to rent.

For the last look, I had to do the quintessential Arcadia style and go edgy.

I paired Yolanda in Navy with the Robin hair from Magika.  This is the multi version–one of those limited editions Sabina Gully has put out recently.  If you’ve not checked those out, be sure to head over to Magika and do so before they disappear.

With some fun and funky jewelry from WRONG and the Nekophelia Sugar version of Eden from ::Exodi:: , I was satistifed enough to go and play in the ocean for a bit longer.

Yolanda, one of the newest releases from MichaMi, is sexy and sophisticated, yet versatile enough to fit any personal style.  The design of this swimsuit is lovely; I like the pattern, and the shape of it is beyond flattering for all those feminine curves we have.  For only 200L, you should definitely go and treat yourself to a new swimsuit. And don’t forget: if you prefer a bikini, MichaMi has a new release called Soraya that you’ll definitely want to check out.  Both come in 12 different colors and all on layers. You’re sure to find one that fits your style best.
