I’ve been stepping out of my photo studio a little more lately. The photos on flickr are so inspiring..we have some amazingly talented individuals in sl.

I’m wearing Ella in natural in this post, with the Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara. Applier available at the {AIMI} main store.

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)

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

Just an everyday sort of look. I saw Taylor Schilling (along with the rest of the cast of OITNB) on Conan and she looked so beautiful. Her dress was a deep magenta and she paired it with a pair of red stilettos, much like the ones in this post. Since I saw it I’ve been wanting to wear the purple/red combo.

If you are an Orange Is The New Black fan and haven’t seen the Conan episode I’m speaking of, you’ll really enjoy it. 🙂

I’m loving the poses from label motion..only 50 L$ a set at The Dressing Room! They come with the individual animations, a pose stand with the animations loaded, or a hud to wear. I love that so much, so amazing for taking pictures!

I had to get a close-up of the red stilettos from Slink. When I look at them my heart starts beating really fast, lol. Is this normal? Never mind. Don’t answer that please.❤

The Slink Physique

THE SLINK PHYSIQUE

Slink Physiquefront&backfinal

I finally bit the bullet and got the Slink Physique. I’ve been doing some research, and I said that I never would get a mesh body, but I must say, it is quite beautiful. The pictures in this post were taken right when I got it and was getting familiar with it. You can use your sliders just like you can with your ordinary skin. I didn’t get the Visage, which I assume is a mesh head. I don’t think the sliders work for the head, please correct me if I’m wrong on that.

I know most of you have seen this video already, but if you haven’t and are curious about the Slink Physique, Gogo’s video and post on the subject is very helpful. Here is the website that the notecard included with the SLP links you to for full instructions on how to get started with your new mesh body.

~taxicab to Slink and grab a demo!~

Slink PhysiqueApplier lingerie FINAL
Included in your Slink Physique purchase is a lingerie applier. You wear this like a hud, and you are given the choice of 3 sets of bras and panties to wear; white, red, or black.

If all of this sounds foreign to you I promise, all you have to do is follow the directions on the notecards and it’s simple as pie. It’s true, at this time there are some minuses about the mesh body, the biggest one, in my opinion, being that there are certain outfits that won’t work with it, because the system clothing layer cannot be seen. I have a strong feeling that, in the very near future, clothing appliers are going to be sold along with outfits and separately for layering options and such, if not already.

Slink Physique Dress final
Also included in you Slink Physique purchase is this amazing One Shoulder Dress, that fits your new bod like a glove. It is stunning.

Besides the shadows, these photos are totally unedited. The longer I blog the more imperfections I see and it’s awesome not having to worry about liquifying all of the weird points jutting out of various places on my body. This body could actually save me some time! ❤

keeping it simple

I went ahead and stuck this picture in last minute because it so depicts the way that I’m feeling right now. Maybe someone else would see it another way, but I just imagine sitting there overwhelmed with so much work to do, wanting to be anywhere else but there, and just “sighhhhhhh”. No idea why I see it that way. 😉

Library 2 final corrected

I dug deep into my sl closet and came across my Kookie Armada boots. I did want to wear something newer, something I’ve purchased since my return, but I loved the way they went with the look, the skirt in particular. It’s young and fun and comfy…and if sl were real these are definitely the type of shoes I would be wearing with as much running around the grid as I’ve been doing.

Library Final

NEW Braid Bracelets from Izzie’s in a variety of colors to choose from, and The Basic Purse, NEW, by Imeka, purchased at kustom9.

Final Library purse and bracelet

I didn’t plan it, but all of these little gold hearts started showing up in my accessories. I relented at the end and searched for heart earrings to finish this simplistic look off..The ones worn are an old gift from Caroline’s Jewelry. To be honest I haven’t investigated Caroline’s Jewelry since I came back…but it’s on my list!

all the pretty horses

I have a weakness for late-night shopping on marketplace sl…well, anytime of the day I guess you could say. Late at night I seem to be more generous to myself. 🙂 My latest “binge” was at the (NO) marketplace store. I saw this dress, The Folds Dress, and fell in love with it. It’s very fun and whimsical..and it seems very classic to me..as if it will always be in style, at any point in time.

(NO) (nylon outfitters)  creator, Nylon Pinkney is so very talented. There is an array of unique products in her stores, not only clothes. Getting the link for this post just now, I couldn’t resist adding a couple more items to my cart. ~sighs~ I swear, I have zero self control.

Click here for taxicab to (NO)’s in-world store.

and oh em gee I just came across the Nylon Outfitters official blog, here…take a peek and fall in love! I’m going shopping..again!

LaGyo’s Blackdrop Hat @ Collabor88. Available in 9 colors. Each color has ON/OFF veil option and resize menu.

I got to the end of this post and was about to hit the publish button and I was like, omg…there’s no close-up of the zoe pumps by [celoe]. It would be a sin not to mention and/or show a close-up of these gorgeous pumps. The Zoe Pumps are 100% mesh and unrigged so you can move them, in edit mode, to make adjustments if needed. Available in 6 colors. I wanted to fatpack them so badly I could have cried…but like Arnold says…”I’ll be bach”.

NEW @ Mimikri Kit “DEA”

It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve gotten a post out! I guess in sl time it has been…nearly a week I think? I think if it’s more than a week you get a fine from the blog police 😮  Hopefully they’ll factor in that I put together 2 different looks with Mimikri Kit’s newest creation, “DEA”


“DEA” Rigged Mesh Separates. Sequin Sweaters and matching Skinny Leggings Set available in 9 different colors to mix and/or match. Click here to teleport to Mimikri.

(above) Mesh Accessorizing; Mandala‘s CEEKEEEY Earrings paired with LaGyo’s new Pan Collar in silver.

(above) LaGyo Rose Headgear Hat; you can change the texture on the hat, the ribbon, and the flower, worn with the classic Maitreya Long Scarf.

I must admit that one reason it’s taken me so long to complete this post is, I’ve been playing around with windlight settings. There are so many amazing ones available to download. Strawberry Singh has very simple directions on how to download them and add them to your sky settings, here. You’ll also see that she has some of her own wl settings available to download, plus a list of links to some of her favorite ones.
