If you want to get a dress these days that is not mesh ... you need to sign up at avination... ;)
SL is smeshed up totally. Almost every designer is getting into mesh and without getting into detail too much I would too - if I were in their place.
The new dresses by Maai and G&D are sweet and very casual - just jump into one and off ya go to a the next club around the corner.
At Collabor I came across this new hairdo by Clawtooth.
