Two dresses from Floyd

Poses are from the Long Awkward Pose Spice set!

I am in a strange moment of peace before the semester starts. I know that it's a fragile peace (I'm sure it's because there are several things I haven't yet done that I've totally forgotten about) but for the moment it feels like a place of grace. The undergrads are gradually trickling back into town, and the air is smelling a little more like Autumn. Okay fine, we have August to get through, but a girl can dream, right? I love Autumn.

Anyway. Floyd, it sure is open! I'm wearing two dresses from shops with outlets on Floyd. The first is from Elate!, and the second is from Big Booty Big Money. I love the prim skirt on the Elate! Annalisa dress -- it flows like water around my legs. I find the BBBM Epilogue dress as entertaining as always; it looks like a 1950s film version of skirts from the 1850s -- just like slightly furled umbrellas. The designers have paid lovely attention to construction on both of these, and I feel all ready to dance at the Fall Cotillion.

Floyd also has a little freebie shack, well worth a visit. I got Schadenfreude's charm bracelet there, and several other items -- a bun hairstyle, paisley socks, a little fluffy skirt, etc. etc. The build is just as weirdly charming as Lloyd. I especially like the shop in the venus fly trap with enormous dead flies adorning the teeth of the plant!
