first sunrise

lara ethereal fin

It’s no surprise to me that I fell madly in love with the Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara, the moment I put it on. And the fact that it comes pre-packaged with 10 Glam Affair skin tones, just about the only line I wear anymore, was enough to make me buy Lara with the faith of not even getting a demo.

There are a ton of features and freebies and I’m almost done with the post that touches on all of that. I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever so I wanted to do a quick post this morning. To tell you the truth I was so excited about Lara when I did the photo shoot I kind of went a little crazy with the pictures and when I sat down to create the post my brain felt like it was about to explode.

I also wanted to remind you to pick up your free New Year Group Gift, Hatsuhi  from Tableau Vivant  (worn in this post). Hatsuhi means “first sunrise” in Japanese..a very fitting name for this beautiful gift. Thank you Tableau Vivant! Make sure you’re wearing your group tag and click on the sign at the mainstore, here. It is absolutely stunning and you get every shade that they have! Put it at the top of your to-do list because I have no idea how long this gift will be available.

Marukin’s newest set, winter’s breath, is a collection of poses that make beautiful close-ups. (2 poses from winter’s breath set shown above) Available @ Collabor88 for a few more days!

Im totally in love with Truth‘s new Holly. If I weren’t a blogger and had a standard “look”, I would be wearing this hairstyle for a while. Hell, I blog so slowly that I have been wearing this hairstyle for a while, lol. I think in the months to come we’ll be seeing a lot of “lobbed” hair style’s like this. They were very hot on the spring preview runways during fashion week.

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.

dark glamour final close

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.

FIN alaskametro 1

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.

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!

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.

~click here for taxicab to GizzA Creations Main Store!~

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. 🙂
