Cheongsam Asian Dress…SWA Review

China13_001b

Second Wave apparel is one of those businesses within SL that I have come to rely on for a certain type of clothing. If I am looking for a certain camisole to match my pants or a pair of pants to match my camisole this is the place to go. I think I discovered the store fairly quickly during my early days in SL and I liked it for a couple of reasons. The clothing is reasonably priced and available mostly as separates. There are a wide variety of styles and colours to choose from and it’s all top quality. At the same time Sioxie Legend has been expanding her skills and adding to her repertoire. She now has costumes and Fantasy clothing in addition to her separates.

The Cheongsam Asian Dress comes in Red and Black Silk. This dress is beautifully designed with a Dragon (I have a thing for Dragons..) across the front and detailing throughout the dress. As well, it comes with a parasol, earrings and shoes to match. The Parasol does not come with any animations, but will work with any umbrella animations or AO’s. I found once I had the Parasol properly placed it worked well with my own animations and I had fun running around and playing with it. Although the Dress works well in an Asian setting, or for Halloween, Chinese New Year etc., it’s lovely enough to wear every day.
