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

Beautiful Newness from The Secret Store! The Mini Mesh Skirts, available in plain and printed versions. I considered doing a post showing each skirt because the colors are gorgeous, and there are some amazing printed ones. Very unique! There is a free demo available at the in-world and marketplace stores.

If you’re as big of a Maylee Oh fan as I am, you may want to bookmark a couple of sites. The Secret Store blog, and The Secret Store on marketplace sl. Nothing like shopping from the pose stand in your bedroom. 🙂


If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been venturing out of my safe, little photo orb more lately. Lately as in, since I’m able to view shadows. Lol, I just imagined a follower reading this and shaking their head saying, “she’s not going to talk about them damn shadows again, is she??” No, I am not..well I guess I kind of just did, but I was leading up to something else. Location.
We all know that there are literally thousands of awesome places in sl to take pics, some well known, and some waiting to be discovered. I’m betting that most of us also know that exploring the grid, looking for different photo locales is an experience within itself. Anything is possible in this world! If you have the time, that is.
That’s something else that I’ve bitched about mentioned quite often. How I wish I had more time. So lately I’ve been collecting LM’s and doing some googling on places to take photographs in second life, or.. beautiful, unique places in second life..whatever key words i can think of at the time.

The showcase section, located in the destination guide (found in the search section of your viewer, or here) has a lot of neat places to take pictures. I’ve also got a special landmark folder that I call “cool places”…yes, I know, such a snazzy, original name. When I’m out shopping, or on a hunt, or whatever, and I see a place that I like, I landmark it and drag it into said folder.

I wanted to share a very helpful post I found in Through Salamander’s eyes,  by Moniq Salamander. I am keeping this page bookmarked for sure. There are all sorts of different tips and lists. There is a list of links called Locations and there are some really good ones, and some great sources to find more!

It was love at first sight for me when I tried on The Lady Swing Skirt from The Secret Store.  Designer Maylee Oh says that she was inspired by 50’s fashion to create these long, lovely mesh skirts. Skirts include an optional fabric rose belt and are available in 7 beautiful versions. (optional belt and all skirt versions can be viewed here)

I went on a hunt for the perfect pair of earrings for this ensemble, and on my favorite hunting grounds…marketplace sl. I saw the black and white stripes on these earrings and thought they would look really cool with the skirt. The price was decent so I clicked “add to cart” and the product info came up. Well let me tell you..these are more than just your average earrings.

Created by Maxi Gossamer they are 100% mesh and scripted to open a menu when touched. From that menu you can choose from 12 different textures, or resize them. You can also edit them regularly to adjust the placement. Browse through her amazing marketplace store, Maxi Gossamer Jewellery, here. I was unable to find an inworld store so if you find one and  have a moment, please leave the store url in a comment on this post. 🙂


Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.  Gweneth Paltrow
