Such a HUGE start to the weekend. Slink has been enticing us all with Visage sneak peaks over the past weeks, and they produced with not only one head, but two fantastic mesh heads. Emma was the head all the trailers showed, and then out of nowhere we got Becky as well. The options are amazing, and will grow and grow further as more skin creators join the existing in creating appliers for these wonderful heads. More heads are also coming in the future, and another great thing is that all appliers will work on either, and all future heads.
So far I have seen some beautiful posts on the heads, and one stand out post so far is from the lovely Grazia Horwitz, who goes into detail on the appliers huds already created by other stores HERE. I am actually cheating by wearing a yet to be released Adam n Eve applier set and skin called Ellie. Ellie is beautiful and comes with the base skin, cleavage options. The lolas appliers, phat azz and Slink appliers are an add on pack you can purchase if you have those things. It will be released at the upcoming Skin Fair that starts very soon, so look out for the Adam n Eve booth there….
I got told today that I was not wearing my usual “uniform’ by that they meant my Boom bikini that I wear under everything in case of alpha or mesh load failure. Because of this I tend to just wear it on its own much of the time, because it is just much easier to do so.
Today though I unpacked a skirt that was released some time ago by Erratic, and fell instantly for it. Not only does it come in the solid as worn, but there are also two tone – very 70′s – looks as well. It reminds me of those shorts in a similar style, and it is a perfect texture of softness and sexy all rolled into one….
“Really Big Ostentasious Ring” should be a category in Marketplace, but I didn’t need search, I knew exactly what store to hit up, and that was Paper Couture. Regardless of age, sculpts, prims, or mesh, the Paper Couture collections hold up over many years past, and will for many more in the future. This ring is just beautiful and when dressing up in such a manner, I need the ring to pull it together.
The gown and shoes I am wearing today, are part of a huge collection of Bridal wear by MiaMai, and honestly, these are the kinds of collections that make you want to organise a big and beautiful event for someone, but SySy won’t let me throw her and her RL husband a wedding…mean right? It is rare for me to pull out all the purple, but this gown was well worth it, and as soon as I saw it on I knew it would go with one of my more recent sets of nails for Flair, one of my favourite sets of simple subdued colours, and they really look beautiful together….
In the 8 years I have been an Second Life Resident, only a few months of that time was I not blogging. I didn’t start out Fashion Blogging right away, I actually didn’t know that existed as a thing until I was already in world 4 months, but I was blogging pretty regularly on my own blog. Then I discovered ‘Appearance Mode” I have told this story a few times, and how I had so much inventory from shopping everyday and working, that I started blogging daily.
If you think I am wordy now, there are older residents that can attest that how I blog now is barely a blurb by comparison. I loved it, was incredibly passionate about it, and looked at it as a way to contribute to this amazing community.
This post is a rant, a big one that has been festering for months. I have spoken about it with Cajsa, and Gidge, as well as Gogo and Whimsy – pretty much daily with Whimsy. As much as I would get my rant on, I never actually wanted to post it. I never thought I would ever do a post about people that blog in a negative at all.
Notice that I said ‘People that blog” and not ‘Bloggers” in that sentence. That is pretty much the point of this post….
21 Shoe started last month and enjoyed resounding praise for this one day a month event. You have 24 hours on the 21st of each month to get your hands – or in this case FEET – on the EXCLUSIVE items, in a 2 for 1 promotion. Each store involved, and they do change, will have out 2 shoes, either the same style or differing, in exclusive colours or styles that wont be sold again in that way.
Slinks items for this coming Friday are these stunning Siren Stilettos. Not only is the shoe NEW and so sexy, but the exclusivity is in the amazing Silver and Gold Glitter options. I could weep that these won’t be available afterwards in these colours, so do not dilly dally, or think you can get them another time, because you won’t be able to. They will come out in other colours at regular pricing, but this is not only a bargain, but MUST HAVES in the silver and gold. They only work with the HIGH feet from slink, as they are add on shoes, but that of course means you can also wear all the other high feet add ons, not only at this event, but in stores all over that are creating for them. If you want a closer up pic of the two colours, you can see them HERE ….
With this amazing Special Edition of skin by Pink Fuel, I felt very mysterious and empowered today. The skin is definitely a more mature skin than usual for Pink Fuel fans, and the raised eyebrows are just stunning, adding that touch of sexuality to the whole look. The eye-shadows are beautiful and rich, with the pouty lipsticks that we have come to love with other skin in the range. This skin is super loaded as well, so many incredible appliers options, from Slink to Apple May baby bumps, so if you are an extras kind of lady, this is a must have sneak peak at the upcoming release of this skin line in full at the upcoming Skin Fair, in March.
When feeling this sexy and mysterious, there is a definite ‘go to’ item in every ladies wardrobe. The trench-coat, and this one by Erratic does not let us down. Amazing detailing on the fabric choice, with a almost quilted looking sleeve, and amazing detailing, with the tied belt and double breasted buttons. I especially like the unbuttoned bottom button, as without that you would find it very hard taking long sexy strides in this coat. Mind you, remember to be cautious of how you sit, as one would suggest in this mood, there may not be a lot you have on underneath, so be sure to sit ladylike wont you….
The other day we spent hours in space, by we I mean Whimsy Winx, SySy Chapman, Kavar Cleanslate and myself…oh and some freaky Alien dude. Whimsy in her usual fashion, constructed a great mix of a space scene, with the records we created for the Pop Music WinxBox. So we spent literally hours, dancing and chatting while Whimsy made a video, that you can see here on her blog Virtually Dressed.
Ever since the release of these fantastic thigh high boots from Maitreya for Collabor88, I have been swapping colours and pretty much wearing just them and a bikini – yes just a bikini, I have a Boom one I wear all the time under everything, just in case alpha and mesh doesn’t load. It also makes me very lazy. We were busy all week making the NEW W.Winx and Flair Candy Hearts set though, you can see that HERE. So we have to deprim when working with poses, so that is my excuse….
The first Celoe item of the year, and it is part of their ‘Date’ release for Collabor88. Every year C88 lets their permanent creators invite a date to ‘Prom’ and Maitreya invited Celoe as theirs. This Kes dress is a beautiful mix of day and night wear. Easily transitioning between both. The fabric choices are just beautiful and the sleeves are my favourite feature of the style, so adorable. You could wear this dress so many ways, that I see it becoming a go to dress for many.
The theme of this session of C88 is Super Nova, and the creations do not fail to impress as usual. I am wearing some amazing Celestial horns by VN, which looks to be another brand by Crushed Clarity/Ivy Graves. The features on these horns are wonderful and all HUD driven, so you get so much out of them.
Such stunning lines, and the ability to actually create a realistic plastic straps style dress, is what makes Faenzo a store to keep on watching. This truly is one of those marvels that only mesh could have given us, and it is a delight in all colours. There will be some clipping with over exaggerated poses and Ao’s but standing still and ladylike movement is what this style is all about.
This is one of those times that we give thanks to skin creators that give us many breast options, because cleavage enhanced skin for this style is a no no, unless of course you are wearing a few metres of duct tape under there. So please go with the no cleavage options, to really give this dress the beautiful look it deserves…..
Only a few days left of My Attic, and also Collabor88 has a week left. Make sure you visit both and get all the goodies. I fell for the cardigan from Emery as soon as I saw it, but loved the home comfort kind of vibe it had, and decided that it would be totally something to grab when there is a chill in the air, and you may be waiting on your loved one, for a romantic night by the fireplace.
The fireplace is from The Loft, and is part of many fine pieces in the Casolare range. The other gorgeous items are the chairs and light fixture that I rezzed from the dining set, the chairs are gorgeous enough to also be free standing seating for any room in the house. A firm favourite from a past collection is the hide rug, also a The Loft piece, so if you are after a nice rug, this one is perfect….
