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

A lot of us are familiar with Exodi’s Sylvan..for almost the past year we’ve gotten a few versions of her as gifts in the Exodi group, plus a FLF teaser was available recently.. Well today she is officially being released for sale, with 15 different makeups to choose from. Sylvan comes with dark, light, and red brow options plus cleavage and freckle options. I’ve always thought Sylvan was pretty but when I finally got to wear her with the dark brows, omg…she is absolutely stunning.
Exodi VIPs will, as usual, enjoy 25% off Fatpacks and 10% off single skin purchases when wearing their Exodi VIP group tag.
Below are the 15 different makeups (click to enlarge). Sylvan comes in 5 different skin tones; Cachet, Vivante, Lumiere, Soleil, Nuti. In this post I’m wearing Vivante.
