This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
So I noticed this one mesh in the H&M stuff pack was a really cute shape, but looked like it'd been textured like weird orange 70's snakeskin carpeting or something. Very unattractive, and not a chance I'd use it. So I did a pretty much complete retexture, handpainting a nice soft neutral texture for it, and added some cherry blossoms. Elegant and classy in a deep rich crimson red with white detailing, white shoes (with red soles) and a silver bracelet.

I'm rather pleased with how it came out... and was planning on doing a bunch of other colours... but then Photoshop crashed and I lost my layer-separated document. Oh well - at least I'd gotten one imported before it crashed.

You're welcome (as always) to edit and recolour my textures as you like - just give credit and a link if you share them.

I've done it in two versions - one is fully custom and will not replace anything. The other is a default replacement of the textures so you won't have the (in my opinion) quite ugly original showing in your game anymore. You probably just want one or the other, though I guess you could download both if you really wanted. I've included a comparison pic of mine vs. the original so you know which outfit you're replacing. If you like the original, get the file that does not say DEFAULT in the filename. If you never want to see that outfit again, get the DEFAULT file.

Categorized as Everyday and Formal, and works for Young Adults, Adults, and Elders (the original is young adult/adult only and the default replacement file does not change this, only the textures).
