Do the Bustle!

I'm back from the depths of computer repair hell. Don't ever let them tell you it will be only 1 - 2 days to put a new fan in your iMac because they lie! It stretched out for a week, so I called them at least twice a day to make their lives as miserable as mine was without my comp.

It was nice to come back and hear from Skyler John who has a new gown in her Lucky Chair at Mystic Sky. Skyler continues to show her increasing range of style with the exceptional Serendipity gown. It features a brocade bodice and pink satin skirt and sleeves. The skirt features a bustle that extends around the back. Bustles were popular during the Victorian era (mid to late 1800's with a 6 year haitus out of style) so this is a perfect gown to have for special balls and such. (Morbid Outlook)
Bustles were considered very appealing to the opposite sex during this sexually repressed period of time. They were also a sign of wealth because the lower classes could not afford the excess fabric needed to make this embellishment. It also would be a bit foolish to do your chores in a bustle. And I just wanted to show you my back end like Winter did below. :)
Also, quickly, the skin and hair I am wearing are available only til midnight SLT tonight as they are part of 50 Linden Fridays. (I love 50 L Fridays!) Details below.

I'm suprised that it took so long, the people at my apple store have always been overly friendly and speedy. I was starting to think they might be robots.

Well they did end up knocking off the labor costs, so they did do a bit of customer recovery effort, which I appreciated.

Well that's good, definitely not robots though. I just snagged this dress, thanks for the post! They called out my letter just as I was TPing in. It's a nice store too, I love all the princess dresses.
