GizzA Creations introduces their newest haute couture creation, Dandy Lady. Create limitless looks with this two-piece ensemble, or wear it as intended for a formal, straight-off-the runway look. Dandy Lady consists of a mesh floor-length skirt, a mesh jacket that when worn alone shows off your best assets, and a system-layer bra if you’re feeling modest, which, I wasn’t. :) Also included is a black hat (not worn in this post, but can be seen here), and matching t-strap heels, to be worn with Slink‘s high feet. (feet not included)

This would be my favorite type of look, personally. Chic and comfortable, a big bag for all of my crap things. A sweater, in case I get a chill. I’ve also fallen a bit in love with Lauren, one of Glam Affair‘s newest creations. So far I’ve only found her at events but I have a feeling there is a spot waiting for her on one of their walls. (fingers crossed)

When I’ve had the chance to get on sl I’ve tried to use my time wisely, so I’ve been hopping around to all sorts of events. The blog Seraphim has been my fashion bible, I must say. I’ve mentioned this blog a time or two before, and if you don’t already, and you’re into shopping in sl, you must bookmark this blog immediately! Every significant event, fair, sale, hunt, you name it, is on that blog. They have pictures of all of the items and slurls to go with them. A few times I’ve been on and I either didn’t have a lot of time, or a good connection, and I will use Seraphim to choose the items that I want from the event I’m at, and if it is super crowded and laggy I will type the name of the item in Area Search (under the world tab on the top left in Firestorm) and when the item(s) come up I’ll click one and you’ll see a little red arrow pointing to where you need to go. Then I’ll use my cam and follow the arrow and Buy, Buy, Buy. Just make sure you find a spot off to the side to stand and not at the entry point. It constipates the system. :p

From the events I’ve been to lately there have been a few that I had to literally pull myself away from before I broke the bank so to speak. Sad November was one of them. The stores went on forever and there were so many things I wanted. Click here to take a look at a photo gallery of some of the treasures that can be found there. Another event that I went a little too crazy at was The Secret Affair. Check out their website, here, and you will totally understand why. It has pictures and slurls, and it is just an amazing event. I didn’t even get to see everything at either of the events I just mentioned, and I know I spent at least an hour at each.
Sighs, oh what one will do in the name of fashion…❤

This is my second post in a row without wearing my Slink Mesh Physique, and I am ready to put it back on. There are some system clothes that I’ve missed wearing, some of my favorite pieces to layer with. Particularly COCO‘s Bow Shirt.  I’ve seen some beautiful mesh bow shirts but I run into the same problem while trying to layer over them..they come through the top layer of clothing. So for now  there will be occasional posts where I’m not wearing my Slink Physique.

If you’re a purse fanatic like myself you must check out [DDL]. They have a nice selection of purses, satchels, clutches etc. They carry other accessories as well plus some really cute ready to wear items. Join their group, for free I might add, and pick up the beautiful jewelry gifts on the main counter. They have an in-world store and one on the marketplace as well (here). I found that the in-world  store carried a wider selection of their products and more color choices for certain items also. Click here to visit the [DDL] Facebook page for a quick look at   some of Melina Anatine’s beautiful, well-made creations.

Before forking out big bucks on eyeglasses, check the marketplace! I found a plethora of them for 1-5 $L and a handful of really cute freebies as well. I understand sometimes you fall in love with an amazing Gos pair and you don’t have a choice but to spend the L$. But if it’s just a simple, cute pair of glasses you’re searching for, try the T.C. Kawaii Glasses; only 1L$ at the Erovi Marketplace Store, here.

Dark Glamour NEW from GizzA

dark glamour fashion shots final lighter

GizzA Creations would like to introduce Dark Glamour, the new formal attire collection for the season. I can’t remember the last time I wore a formal gown, so it was fun getting all dressed up even though I had no place to go. That’s one of the lovely benefits of saving outfits. If I do need a formal look, sometime in the near future, you know, like for dancing in the moonlight? [hint, hint]…I can have this entire look with just a couple of clicks.

Dark Glamour is a strapless, floor length evening gown with double thigh high slits that show off your legs quite nicely. Rich black textures partially covered with black sequins and a beautiful feathered accent piece on the right hip (just above the right leg slit) come together for a sleek, sexy, classic look. Matching stilettos and clutch purse come with the dress in GizzA Creation’s  convenient,  one-stop shopping fashion.

Oh the accessories you can wear with this dress. LaGyo has some amazing statement pieces and I went there with the intention of picking up one piece to wear with this gown. In real life I might have opted not to wear a necklace and earrings and let the head piece,  the dress’s feathery accent, and the dress itself for that matter, be the focal points; not have a lot of other things going on. In real life I wouldn’t be able to afford more than one item at a place like LaGyo so this would never be a problem. But this is second life and here stores are open 24/7 and you can afford a 2 am shopping binge at LaGyo. Or at least you think you can at 2 am. ( a lot easier to rationalize when you’re tired, perhaps?) I swear it’s like going to the grocery store when you’re hungry. I was just buying everything like I was Ivana Trump or something! Crazy. Oh, don’t act like you haven’t done it! :p

all tutus should be pink

pink tutus final

I wasn’t sure which look I was going for while putting this outfit together. All I knew, was that I was going to wear this pink tutu, dammit! It was hard to choose what to wear it with because it looked cute with so many different tops. I opted for an applier top by [aDiva].

[aDiva] has, in my opinion, some of the most beautifully detailed, realistic applier clothes that I’ve seen. Creator AnneJoy Paine has been a busy bee lately making appliers for The Mesh Project. When I first shopped on her marketplace store I was so sad because most everything was for TMP only. Lately when I go there I see she’s adding more and more versions of her creations that are compatible with other mesh bodies as well…yay!!! Thank you Miss AnneJoy, keep ‘em comin’ please!

pink tutu no jacket close final

I don’t have as much time as I’d like (lol, do I ever??) but I could do a post alone about the leather collar and gloves. Since I don’t have much time, you MUST check them out for yourselves.  Their marketplacesl description pages (check credits) have close-up shots of both items so you can see the details and omg the options!!! for these products.

The **RE** LUX Chained Heart Collar is resizable and comes with a texture-change HUD that gives you your choice of 10 leathers, 10 metals, and 10 hearts. It is also Open Collar scripted with a full perm hud you can give to your partner. Click here to see close up pictures of this beautiful collar, front and back, and a picture of the texture options on the **RE** LUX Chained Heart Collar’s marketplace sl page.

the girl’s got game

gamer girl fin 1

It’s only been a week or so, but oh how I’ve missed my little blog. I wish I could clone myself and have my clone do my menial rl tasks and I could sit and blog my little heart out. But alas, that’s not going to happen so I must enjoy the time I do get to blog and make it worth while.

The Dirty Princess Gladiator Heels definitely make it worth while in my opinion. The moment I saw these I had to have them. I’ve wanted some black gladiator heels for a while but I was having a hard time finding a very tall pair that didn’t have that gold lion on the front. At first I thought they were discontinued because I couldn’t find them with the other DP items on marketplace. As it turned out, my settings somehow weren’t on adult and for some reason they are an “adult item” on marketplace sl…I guess because they’re so hot. :) But it worked out because I tp’d to the in-world store and was able to look at their beautiful creations in person pixel.

I’m also trying a new skin in this post. I’ve had my eye on Izzie’s Neva for a while now. I’ve probably demo’ed it at least 3 times and I finally decided to get it. I love the full brows, the pouty lips and the cute little nose. Izzie’s is fast becoming one of my favorite places to shop. Her jewelry is beautiful and she’s making more and more applier clothes, socks, gloves, etc.

The clothes are all by Coco Designs; only 2 purchases though. The shirt comes with the scarf which can be worn separately and an additional tee in a different color. The black tee’s “additional color” is a white tee.

The jewelry is all by Epoque. I’ve bought a lot of their items on marketplace but I tp’d to the store this time and went on a late-night shopping frenzy in there. They have amazing jewelry, and I’m a fool for a nice set of dust knuckles.

Last but not least, the Gamer Bag by Le Primitif is from The Arcade Gacha! It was a gift from one Miss Neva Seljan, blogger extraordinaire, and she gave it to me right before I did the photoshoot for this outfit. It happened to match perfectly. I think it makes the whole outfit..with the shoes of course. It’s great to have a friend that is a Gacha addict because then you get their doubles, hee hee. Thank you so much sweet Neva!
