Alaskametro has added some awesome new items to her collection. She is revamping a lot of her creations from the “prim era” so that they can be worn as appliers on mesh bodies…yay! The metallic Giselle II bikini is one of her newest revamps.

Paired with wide legged Miami Linens from BOOM! and the FREE Group Gift hair from Tableau Vivant I thought it was a very glam, sexy and sophisticated look. It made me think of something you would see a star wearing in paparazzi photos.

FIN2 alaskametro

The Tableau Vivant FREE Group Gift hair is what I like to call a “high-end gift”..and we all know that those are the extremely nice, well made gifts that we would actually buy at full price, or maybe even one that we would want to buy at full price but couldn’t afford, lol.  The gift includes different HUD’s to give you the choice of every color possible and it is just beautiful. Thank you so much Miss Marilyn Magic!

Oh, and did I mention there is no fee to join the group? Just click here and tp to Tableau Vivant, join the group and then pick up your Free Gift. ❤

My “favorite sl outfits ever” list is getting too long. I may have to start calling it a “category”. Here’s another outfit that made the cut. Believe it or not these pieces are from different creators. They could almost be a set, with their similar rich textures and beautiful ruffles.

Ok, I have to talk about the amazing Dupla Ruffled Leggings from Mutresse. These are NOT your average, everyday leggings and once you try them you will be blown away by the countless looks you are able to come up with.

Mutresse Dupla Leggings. 1 pair of pants, 1000 different looks.
mutresse leggings_poster_700x525

These rigged mesh leggings come with 3 wearable parts; the leggings, the waistband and the ruffles. They also come with a hud that has 24 different  fabric options for each piece, plus a section to modify the sheer parts of the leggings. Read the notecard inside the Leggings folder for easy instructions on modifying the sheer parts. The photo above (snagged from Mutresse’s marketplace store) shows 3 different ways to wear the leggings, plus sample swatches of the 24 different fabric options the hud gives you for each individual piece!

The V.e. Ruffled Bolero is available in a variety of color combinations, and can be purchased on Valentina E.’s marketplace store, or at the main store in-world. Click here to visit Valentina E. on the marketplace. If you’d like to see the available colors and the matching Gaucho, sold separately, the marketplace link has clear pictures that you can zoom in on. I’m thinking I need to pick up a couple more of these boleros. There are so many different ways you can wear it,  it took me forever to decide on just one! If you’d like visit the in-world store, click the link below.

I went a little old-school on some of my accessories and I admit, I’ll probably go bolder with my jewelry next time I wear this. I kept going back to the Zaara pieces though. I love the way the amethyst in the Vanisri necklace complements the purple and teal in the corset and bolero.

The corset is from FINESMITH, a store I found on….guess where? You got it! The Marketplace..I’m telling you when it comes to marketplace I’m as bad as a little old lady on QVC. The Romance Corset is 100% mesh and comes with an attachable hud that gives you 5 different colors to choose from. See color choices and/or visit FINESMITH’s marketplace store, here.

vegas nights final

I haven’t been able to go in world much, if at all in the past week, but I’ve really been wanting to get this post out.
Uber‘s theme for October is 50 Shades of Grey and I think this post embodies that theme perfectly.

I loved this outfit already but when I added ryvolter’s Mink Princess Stole it made my “top ten favorite outfit’s in sl” list immediately. I’ve worn fur in sl, but  never before have I seen it look so realistic.  Available in a wide variety of colors, this stole will turn heads where ever you go. It comes in a regular size and a wider size for different poses. It moved very well with my ao and I wore the regular size for all of the pics in this post.

After demo’ing about a hundred corsets trying to find the look I wanted I finally smartened up and searched bustiers. I hit a goldmine when I found ~coepio~‘s Sexy Bustier. It comes with the attachable hud shown below and your choice of any of the colors, prints and fabrics. This item could be an important staple in your sl wardrobe.

after hours final with jacket

This post has been a long time in the making because real life seems to be keeping me pretty busy. Doesn’t rl know I have a second life to live?? Sheesh!

Poppy is looking business chic with her briefcase and mon tissu glasses. The top and belt are part of GizzA’s new creation, the Nicola Gown. It’s originally a formal gown, as seen here, but you can also wear the pieces separately to create your own unique look.

after hours final taking her hair down

 

Let down your hair, lose the jacket, lose the specs (or not) and this look easily transforms into an after-hours look. Great for role-play :) Or if you want to “sex it up” a bit more you can always go a length or two shorter on your skirt (shown below wearing the mini length). The Maitreya Mesh Pencil skirts come in a variety of lengths and colors to fit anybody’s style.

If you’re looking for well-made applier clothing and accessories you must go to Izzie’s! There you will find several different gloves, stockings, lingerie, manis’ and pedis’…the list goes on and on and continues to grow. If you’re not in-world, Izzie’s creations (along with some killer dollarbies) can also be found on her marketplace store, here!

in protest of fall

atomic fin1

It’s officially fall and today happens to be the first “coolish” day we’ve had where I live. Keep in mind I live in the south-east of The United States where coolish means not excruciatingly hot. (coolish=85ºFarenheit)

Contrary to the title of this post I welcome Fall with open arms..but I really wanted to blog this awesome side cut-out dress that Atomic has at this month’s Collabor88. I regret not getting more side shots because the side cut-outs are really pretty (curse the lag!!!). They give this classic dress a little dash o’ sexy.

Of course, this dress doesn’t have to be confined to summer/spring. You could easily turn it into an autumn look with tights, or boots, a jacket or a shawl…all of the above…etc. etc. It also comes in 4 different color packs. Each dress is considered a color-pack because it includes a hud where you can choose from 3 different colors.

I love Atomic‘s new(ish) Aphrodite Floral headpiece worn in Poppy’s hair. It gives her an ethereal look. The headpiece is unrigged so I was easily able to move it to the opposite side of her head, and it fit perfectly with Magika‘s newest ‘do, No.

She looks like she could be going to a wedding..or maybe even in a wedding. Sighs, always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Hey, that would be a good blog post title..I could have Poppy sitting on a bench, holding the bouquet she had caught at a wedding. She could be all tired and depressed or irritated waiting for the bus or subway. Eh, sounds like a lot of work. Cute thought, though. :)

GizzA Creations’ new collection, The Anne Marie Outfit, is a beautiful ready-to-wear dress that is perfect for the changing of seasons. A belted mini with a contrasting colored top, this dress is available in 6 different color combinations, and comes with matching t-strap pumps and clutch.  This classic dress will be a favorite in your inventory. It is so nicely made and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received while hopping around the grid in this number.

I’m wearing my new Romy skin by Glam Affair in this post. If you visit this blog often, get used to seeing me in it for a while, I’m kind of in love with it. :)  Romy comes as a plain base skin and you choose all of the colors and features you’d like to personalize your own look with.

I haven’t experimented with Glam Affair’s The Mesh Project yet, which I know is very customizable. I may delve into it soon but right now I’m very happy with this look. If you’d like more information on The Mesh Project you can check out Glam Affair’s web site, here, or take the taxicab above and check it out in-world. So many goodies so little time…

Have you seen the freebie “mecca” in front of Pure Poison’s mainstore yet? Maybe it’s already been blogged and reblogged a million times, but for myself, it was my first time seeing it. Being the fashion addict that I am, it was quite a rush when I saw what nice gifts they had available. You have to join the group, zero fee, yay! … then just go nuts! Grab whatever you like, or in my case, everything. They also have four or five gacha! group gifts where you get one free play per machine. Prepare to be awed.

Romy GizzA accessories fin

Shown above are the accessories worn in this post: The shoes and the clutch come with your GizzA Anne Marie dress. The colors vary, depending on which dress color combo you decide on. I always seem to gravitate towards the teals. The triple rings are LaGyo (scripted to prompt color-change menu for the stones upon touch), the single gold ring is part of the ISON Safari Tribe set and the earrings are from ANE. The Tisuki necklace and July bangles are just a couple of the beautiful finds from the Pure Poison free kiosks. You can find all links at the bottom of this post.

not so nautical

lime and navy at ys&ys fin1

Wow, wherever do I begin? There are so many amazing events, gifts, new products..I never have a problem finding something to blog. The hard part is making all of the choices!

I ventured out of my photo orb for this post. I wanted to play around with some different wind lights, and as much as I tried to make it a “not so nautical look”, I decided it sort of was and went with, drum roll……the beach. These photos were taken on the beautiful sim of YS&YS. While there I picked up the glamorous Viareggio Bag. This bag comes with a hud (bag & hud pictured below) which gives you 20 different color options for the foulard, and 3 different color options for the metal. The hud also allows you to resize your bag as big or as small as you like.

I picked up The Essenz Bali Wedges (pictured below) back in the June round of L’accessories, and they are now in the Essenz Main store. If you haven’t shopped at this store, or if it’s been a while, I highly recommend that you put it on your “things-to-do list”, NOW. Have a scroll through some of the new items on their Facebook page, here, and see if your heart doesn’t skip a beat…

IKON‘s new Hope Eyes are out and they are giving their group members a free pair! Denim Blue, shown in pic below. These are the first eyes I’ve ever worn that have a hud. They are quite customizable and they even have a light you can turn on or off, dim to bright, if you’d like to have shining eyes.

TP to Ikon. If you’re not already a member of their group, join, for free (omg I know, you don’t see that a lot anymore!), make sure you have on your group tag, and grab your gift!

To be honest with you, I’ve never really played around with several makeup tattoos all that much. I do wear mascara tattoos nearly all of the time, and a winged eyeliner here and there…I’ve worn lipsticks a few times..so I wear very minimal I’d say.

I’ve recently purchased Glam Affair‘s Romy (not pictured in this post). That will be a post all by itself, talking about her. She’s gorgeous btw, I love her :) . But it looks like with Romy I’ll be doing a lot of makeup mixing and matching because she comes plain and all of the m/u’s are tats or appliers for visage. While binging at Glam Affair I picked up several different makeups and I’m modeling a few of them in this post. (see credits)
