If you saw her wearing a strapless top, blue shorts and long, sexy boots, would you take her for a ride?

With so many events lately, i got pretty SL broke, so this post is a guide of how to look pretty on a very tight budget. Cause, you know, I think there’s many of you who got broke too these days, with oh so many pretty things to buy on the grid these days. Plus,  with new events about to start in June, maybe it’s time to save some lindens only to get broke again in no time 😀

So today Moniq is wearing some lovely cheapies and gifts – the hair and necklace & earrings set are happy finds at the Retro Wash Sale, with so many cute items to grab for L$10 each, the bangles and earrings will be available as prizes in the Accessories Hunt and the skin was a gift for the Cynful anniversary party (no longer available, sorry).

The top and shorts are both mesh. The top is by Plastik and it comes in lots of patters – from gaming to fantasy – and the colorful shorts are part of the LD Major resort collection to be launched on June 1st (see more items here).

Getting this look together was, in fact, quite difficult because of mesh. Now don’t get me wrong, I adore SL mesh and I think it improved the life of us Sl fashionistas 100 percent, but sometimes it makes mixing & matching quite difficult. Especially when your upper body is size S and the lower body is size M. For this post, I had to switch to M for the top and S for the shorts, to make them fit together. But hey, that’s the great thing about Sl, avatars can lose or gain weight just by touching some sliders 😀
