THE PERPETUAL HUNT
There is a perpetual hunt that every woman on Second Life is secretly on, and that is the hunt for the perfect gown. Whether it be for her wedding, to awe the judges at a pageant, or to dance a romantic night away; the search is ongoing and unrelenting. She may not even be aware that she is on this hunt, and yet she is constantly drawn to gown stores; her eyes are constantly open and searching for that perfect piece of couture.
I have come close to finding my perfect gown on several occassions and the following is one of these. Son!a Luxury Fashion have been crafting and creating gowns for more than four years and know what it takes to make beautifully embellished pieces to inspire the inner princess in us all. Specialising in all things formal, Son!a is guaranteed to have the gown for you somewhere in the extensive inworld store and if not, this is one of few designers currently taking custom work.
I found my dream gown in this Son!a Kelly Bride Gown, here in Brass. The beautiful full and ruffled skirt is embedded with gorgeous shimmering detail. This perfect fairytale piece is dreamily crafted with incredible attention to every tiny stitch and I really do feel like a perfect princess in this stunning creation.
A sculpted strapless corset style bodice meets the skirt with a beautifully crafted floral garland. Lace and sheer fabric delicately embrace the shoulders and arms and add romantic modesty. It really is impossible not to feel like the belle of the ball in this focal piece.
The brocade style embroidery and sensationally detailed shading on the bodice show the extraordinary craftsmanship that Son!a put into each and every elegant creation. The Kelly Bride Gown is available in seven heavenly hues, including; Brass (as worn above), Ice Blue, Golden, White, Purple, Jet Black, as well as a special Xmas Version which is still currently available.
As well as the lovely waist adornment, flowers also decorate a stunning hair veil that sits at the back of the head. A lovely garland of golden ivy curls out from behind the hair to frame and flatter the face. The exquisite lace detailing is evident here, just breath-taking! You can actually see the stitching of the corset ribbing; now that’s what I call intricate!
I’m so very pleased that Son!a also make stunning jewellery to go with their lovely luxe gowns. I am especially enamoured with this Snow Necklace and Earrings Set. All Son!a’s stunningly crafted jewellery items come with a colour change HUD so that you can wear them with each and every one of your favourite Son!a gowns.
The Kelly Bride Gown is available in all seven beautiful colours inworld at the spacious Son!a Store. These retail for 2500$L a piece, apart from the Xmas Edition which is currently half price at 1250$L. You can find them all via the following SLURL:

Alas, finding this piece of perfection does not mean the end of my hunt; it is after all perpetual! What I can guarantee, however, is that I will continue returning to Son!a Luxury Fashion time and time again to peruse the stunning couture therein.
