Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession

FASHION: Pink Lady Love

Sorry for the bit a break in blogging.  But I’ve been getting ready for vacation (yay!!) and had a minor mental block as to what to blog, tbh.

But!  I finally made it to Vintage Fair and voila!  Block dissolved!

I love exploring fairs/expos.  I find designers I never knew existed.  It’s kind of like…. Marketplace.  Only…. in person.  Kind of.  Virtually.  Just go with it.

I was already in a Grease-y type mood since I hung out with my buddies at a 50s diner the other night.  So it was fate that I came across the booth for House of {TORN} and found the Pink Ladies jacket that I then purchased in both pink and black.  There’s something to say about versatility.

I also fell absolutely in love with the Betty skin from Belleza.  My favorite of the bunch was the special Vintage Fair version 2.  I dunno.  I just love it.

And then, of course, I had to have vintage-y hair!  Wasabi Pills had a great collection and Veronica just did it for me.

Vintage Fair ends August 29th.  If you haven’t visited yet, I highly encourage you to take the time and explore.  You may find your new fashion love!  Here’s your taxi:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Classic/215/31/23

Soooo I went a little picture happy.  Worked up three for you guys instead of my normal two.  I hope you enjoy!

FASHION: Marketplace…. My New Addiction….

I thought about this yesterday…. but….

In 2016 – which is only 4 years away – I will have been in SL for 10 years.  Soooooo in SL time, that will make me… what?…… 70 years old?

And that thought led to this thought…. (now I sound like Bill Engvall… only fans will understand that reference)

My shopping obsession has developed over time.  From shopping in-world to browsing Marketplace and favoriting EVERYTHING I want when I have monies.

This….is a problem.   My favorites list has hit 10 pages…  and I think I may hit 30 pages by month’s end.

But…. it does reveal amazing finds I would probably had not found before.  Such as this amazing dress from Chain and Vine.  It’s mesh and it’s just sooooo pretty… well, at least to me it is!  It fits great and just feels rich in the red.  The hair?  Well, I finally made my way over to Catwa at the behest of my bestie.  Too many hairs.  Too little Lindens.  Soooooo not fair.

Details below:

Dress:  Chain and Vine – Pettydress in Red

Pantyhose:  Attitudes – Lace Pantyhose in Tan

Boots:  BAX – Prestige Boots in Black Suede

Necklace & Earrings:  Fusion – Cord Pendant (from Platinum Hunt 2010)

Bangles:  Exodi – Aidan Bangles (store is now closed)

Hair:  Catwa – Yuri in Mahogany Roots

Skin:  Glam Affair – Linn in Medium Tan

Makeup:  Blacklace Beauty – Radiance Shadow 4 w/lashes; Exodi – Smokey Shadows in Smog; Exodi – Lipsticks in Reddish 1

Nails:  Exodi – Sculpted Nails v2 in Sangria

Poses:  Glitterati

Enjoy your week kiddies!

FASHION: The Golden Path

I wanted to post this weekend, but SL wanted to wage war against the upper half of my body and not let me rez OR change ANYTHING on that part of my body….grrrr….

So now that SL is letting me play, I hopped over to The Dressing Room Blue and picked up this awesome mesh top from Baiastice.  I am loving the texture on this, it’s so rich in the gold with the red mixing in to a point.  I already had the shorts from Zaara in my inventory – even though I’ll admit that I completely forgot I had the fat pack lol I thought I only had black!  My biggest problem putting this outfit together – the necklace.  Limited fundage meant I couldn’t go shopping at will.  75K+ inventory items later, I finally found the perfect necklace, which helped to pull the subtle red out of the shirt.

Feel the golden love….

I’m ready for my close up!!

Details:

Top:  Baiastice – Gimha Mesh Shirt (available @ The Dressing Room Blue)

Shorts:  Zaara – Mitya Shorts in Gold

Shoes:  Purrfect 10 – Florence Heels in Autumn Brown

Nails:  Exodi – Sculpted Nails in Sangria (store is now closed)

Hair:  Truth – Kalia in Mahogany Streaked

Necklace:  Exodi – Nyla Necklace in Fire (store is now closed)

Earrings:  Zaara – Anaya Onyx Earrings in Gold

Bangles:  Zaara – Nizam Choodiya Bangles in Gold/White

Skin:  Glam Affair – Linn in Medium Tan/D/09

Makeup:  Exodi – Smokey Shadows in Smog; Blacklace Beauty – Radiance Shadow 4 w/lashes; Djinn & Tonic – Lipstick in Sweetly

Poses:  Diesel Works – Scarlett Poses

Have a Happy Hump Day!!

FASHION: New Discoveries & Some Rediscoveries

So, the very first thing I want to do is give a shout out and a thank you to my friend and fellow blogger, Miss Berry (aka Strawberry Singh).  I was very distraught when I discovered that my beloved Picnik was no more.  It got gobbled up into Google-land.  I was sooooo not looking forward to have to go back to applications Powerpoint-y to do blog photos.  Alas, Berry posted this weekend – and apparently, several times before lol! – about an online FREE photo editing system called PicMonkey.  And lemme tell ya….. I am LOVING it!!!  It is very similar to Picnik and it looks like it is just going to become more and more awesome.  So thank you Berry!!!!  Make sure you all go out and check out her blog.   She is among the best!

I have become recently employed in SL and had some Lindens to burn.  Poked around the blogs and the feeds and the Plurks…. and wound up in several places.  Contained herein are the results of that journey.  First, the artsy photo…..

I journeyed over to Illusory to check out the 50% sale that was going on.  That lead me to a new skin (I know!  Don’t faint!) and a pretty cool top.  Illusory is merging with Aura, so those items that are not becoming part of the merge are on sale.  No end date set yet, so make sure you check it out while you can.   After Illusory, I walked over to Aura and found these mesh jeans.  There are soooo many patterns and colors that I will more than likely end up going back for more.   The jewelry was a great purchase I had upon my revisit to League.  I was originally looking for a halter top (found a different one somewhere else for a future post), but instead I found this great set.  The necklace is my favorite out of the whole thing – the strands, the discs.. I love it all!  And my other rediscovery – Diesel Works.   Another sale going on here – 50% off select items – so I grabbed a couple of pose sets and a prop.

I am really enjoying being back in SL.   Finding new stuff, rediscovering old……  I’m a nerd like that.

Just deal with it.

The not-so-artsy photo – only 15% color boost – and details below:

Top:  Aura – Inked Mini in Gloom

Jeans:  Aura – Class Act Pants in  Cheveron 3

Shoes:  N-core – Cherie XtremeHeel II

Hair:  Truth – Enisa w/Roots in Mahogany

Nails:  Exodi – Sculpted Nails v2 in Jet Black (store is closed)

Jewelry:  League – Wanderer Set in Black

Skin:  Illusory – Love in Caramel/Smoked

Additional Makeup:  Blacklace Beauty Radiance Shadow 4 w/lashes; Exodi Makeups Smokey Shadows in Smog; Illusory Love Lips Lipstick in Coffee Bean.

Poses:  Diesel Works – Diva II

Later taters!

Look Out! I’m Back!! Oh Yeah, And Some Fashion Too!

Almost two years since my last post and almost a year out of SL……

Well, what can I say…. I missed Second Life.  Just a little.  Don’t get a big head or anything.

Getting back into the blogging, getting sucked into the mesh movement, working on some stuff for myself….  It all looks promising.

But it would not be a proper welcome back without some fashion post, right?  So here we go!

This is the latest release from Rebel Hope Designs, with Rebel Hope herself behind the wheel.  This Bella Mesh Gown is just entirely yummy.  The color is rich, the texture is lush, and the mesh form is great.  Granted, I’m new to the mesh arena, so I’m still learning the ins and outs of wearing and admiring it.  But this is just a great piece.  It does come with two alpha versions – one to show feet, and one not to show the feet – and sizes range from XXS to L.  The arm pieces are a separate mesh, so if for some reason you don’t want to wear them….don’t put them on!

I’ve been a Rebel Hope shopper since I started SL in 2006 and her designs continue to grow and change while still maintaining quality and creativity.  If you have never shopped there before, please go check it out.  I’m sure you’ll find at least ONE thing you’ll start counting your Linden pennies for!

 

Styling Details:

Dress:  Rebel Hope Designs – Bella Mesh Gown in Lavender

Hair:  Truth – Eden in Mahogany

Necklace:  LOULOU&CO – Platinum Necklace (from Platinum Hunt 2010)

Earrings:  Zaara – Anaya Onyx Earrings in Gold

Nails:  Exodi – Sculpted Nails in Lilac (this store is closed)

Skin:  Exodi – Sophie in Soliel (this store is closed)

 

I am excited to return to blogging and SL and hope that you will join me for the ride!

Keep smiling!

FASHION: Solange

~*~ Solange ~*~
~*~ Designer:  Solange Cerveau ~*~

Ok, so this post is behind schedule.  However, it is also the first post with THIS MANY PICTURES!!!  OMG, over 30 outfits I photographed and that wasn’t even everything in my inventory!

Why so many?  Because I loooooove what Solange creates!  And I own most of it because she throws awesome sales – most of my collection was obtained during a 100L sale.

What is so great about Solange?  Versatility.  Creativity.  Vitality.  There is such variety in what she offers.  And yes, you will see fantasy outfits and you will see a lot of silks.  But you have to think outside the box!  Don’t just sit there and think you  have to be collared to enjoy these creations.  Silks are HELLA sexy and are a great way to tease your partner! 

And every outfit I put on from Solange feels so bright and so alive.  Very vibrant.  It’s just a fun place to shop!

So here we go, the amazing onslaught of picture goodness featuring the awesome designs of Solange Cerveau!

BLOG:  Solange - Trouble, Slave to Fashion

BLOG:  Solange - Shalenas, Sophia Silk

Definitely have to start with a display of skin flaunting goodies!  Don’t these look like just yummy?  The top two are the most fun for me!  Trouble is just as it sounds……trouble! 😀  Slave for Fashion should be a must have for every blogger to where whilst shopping so as to easily identify each other!  But from the fun at the top, you have such soft and sexy yumminess in Shalenas and Sophia.  So pretty.

BLOG:  Solange - Sassy, Tequila Pant Set, Sassy Dots

BLOG:  Solange - Tequila, Sweet, Candy

Girlie goodness! Lotsa skirts and flirty tops! OMG, love it!  Sassy and Sassy Dots are among Solange’s latest releases and I am loving the subtle texture work on them.  I love the detailing on the top of the Tequila skirt and pants.  Sweet is just a comfy and cute outfit.  I think I wore it for almost a month when I first got it.  Candy….yummmmmy!  Is that not sexy or what?

BLOG:  Solange - Petalwing, Amore 2.0, Romance

BLOG:  Solange - Slide, Dare, Mademoiselle

Some softness….some sexiness.  Petalwing, Amore 2.0 and Romance are beautiful pieces for you to share with your loved one…or ones….or hell, just pamper yourself with them!  Slide is a great dress for those nights you just wanna shake your money maker.  Dare is one of my top faves, mainly because I just love how the top looks.  Great texture.  Mademoiselle has some great depth to it, with the detailing of the corset and the sculpted wrist cuffs.

BLOG:  Solange - Fiesta, Aphrodisia, Devotion

BLOG:  Solange - Infatuation, Elan, Missy

Fiesta is my most favoritest piece from Solange yet.   It’s just…wow.  Even though it’s labeled as a silk, I could so easily wear this on a beach.  It’s just soooo pretty.  Aphrodisia is tintable as well as Infatuation, so you color freaks can go nuts!  Elan is so something I would wear in RL.  That’s just uber comfiness for me.  Missy is way cute and I love the sweater texturing.  Devotion is like THE goddess silk.  You either feel like a princess or a goddess in it.  The prim work is amazing and is all together a fantastic piece.

BLOG:  Solange - Daydream, Highland Hipbanger, Saturday

BLOG:  Solange - Devotion, Because, Allure

This section is entitled “The Short and the Long of It”. LOL yeah, I’m getting punchy and my humor is warped to begin with!  Daydream is demure and pretty while Saturday is elegant and sexy.  Highland Hipbanger….this is just a fun outfit!  It’s like…Braveheart meets Dominatrix…I think…or something like that lol!  I dunno, but I’m loving it!  Devotion, Because and Allure are all cute little dresses, great staples for any wardrobe.

BLOG:  Solange - Tequila, Whiskey, BOOM

BLOG:  Solange - Elegance & Peacock

Remember I said I photographed a whole lot?  Yeah, I didn’t realize I photographed Tequila Sweater Set twice in two different colors until I uploaded to Flickr.  So shush.  Whiskey is a cool night out outfit.  The lace skirt is uber cute and the layering effect on the top is great.   BOOM is a flirty dress that comes in so many different colors, you can probably find one to match your favorite pair of shoes.  Back to some skin showing, Elegance is just that….an elegant piece of lingerie.  At first I didn’t think I’d like the tail piece, but it grew on me and actually adds depth to the whole outfit.  The Peacock Silk (despite what you might think the name would imply) is very simple and elegant.  The gold edging texture makes it stand out.

BLOG:  Solange - Butterfly

Butterfly had to be by itself. It’s just a creation unto itself.  I don’t care what your feeling are towards silk or fantasy or anything.  But there is no way you can put on this piece…..and NOT like it…and just stare it in awe.  That’s all I have to say.  Go ahead and stare for a little bit before reading on.

So there you have it.  All the variety and uniqueness that is Solange.  I dare you to go there and not find at least three outfits that you don’t immediately grab up and buy.

But remember….I’m broke.  So…..I won’t owe you anything if you try to be a smartass and not buy three.   So shush again.

FASHION: Indyra Originals

~*~ Indyra Originals ~*~
~*~ Designer:  Indyra Seigo ~*~

To get the train rolling ahead, I hit up my inventory for the goodness that is Indyra Originals.  At the hand of its namesake – Indyra Seigo – I.O. (yeah, I’m a lazy bish lol) boasts funky fresh fashions with an eye for detail.  I have been an I.O. customer from my newbie days wayyyyyyy back in late 2006, early 2007.  I have seen it grown and develop into a well rounded offering of fashion for those who want to stand out and be seen to those who just want to be sexy for their loved ones.

Indyra puts her talents to great work here, using prims and sculpties to bring her ideas to virtual life. She has come a long way from the early days and has cemented herself as an established and talented designer in the SL Fashion world.

So enough of the verbiage.  Let’s go drool over some clothes, shall we?

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - Kaegan & Bon Charme

Great timing on this release as I was just about to hit post when Indyra sent this down the pipeline. Her newest release for July, the Bon Charme Jacket is my favorite of the three. The details on it are amazing, down to the chains and jewelry prims. Resizeable, so have no fear of spending your hard earned Lindens to have to sit there for hours on end trying to stretch and pull each part to make it fit your avie. The cowl-neck is way sexy…..always a plus to tease in a little bewbage.  The jacket, top and shorts are all available in a variety of colors, so mix and match to your heart’s content.

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - J'aime, Nuvella, Marina

I think this may be my favorite outfit for a while. It’s just too friggin hawt. The J’aime Jeans are offered in three washes: Black, Brown and Blue. So just pick your favorite wash and match it with the J’aime Tank you like, and you’re set to go. Oh, and the tank comes in a see-through option as well! 😀 I love the Marina Belt. Resizeable and the texture is just amazing. And what girl can’t use some funky silver hoops? Love ’em!

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - Urban Agenda: Leo, Halcion, Armada

Again, one of the many things I love of I.O. is how the details make the outfits. Prim and sculpted pieces give outfits such depth in a virtual world. The flexi pieces of the Leo top, the collar and shoulder pieces of Halcion, and the collar on Armada….small things that just bring such a depth to an outfit. Wonderful.

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - C'est Facile, Davenport, Fairfield Prep

These go from innocent to sweet to ahem…naughty! C’est Facile is simple yet elegant. The detail on the sculpted piece of the top just makes the whole thing. Davenport keeps it sweet and I love the arm piece. Fairfield Prep is just a nauuuughty outfit! You can even buy a matching skirt to give everyone a little show! 😀

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - Milana, Princesa, Joya

If I liked wearing dresses in RL, I would sooo wear Milana. It’s simple and pretty. Princesa was acquired at the Fashion Expo in 2008. And Indyra still has it in her store offerings! It’s just funky freshness. What I love on Joya is the flexi front ruffleage. Again, depth is what makes it real!

BLOG:  Indyra Originals - SoCal, L'Ardent, Celeste

SoCal is a great outfit for the clubs or a night out. A little midriff never hurt anyone! 😀 The L’Ardent dress is just spectacular. The detailing on the designs of the flexi is great. I paired it with the Celeste Jeweled Collar, which does not appear to be offered anymore (I swear I looked Indyra!! I even used Emerald Search). But it’s a great piece of jewelry to have.

This is merely a miniscule offering of what Indyra Originals has.  I didn’t even show any of the shoes!!!  But you need to just go and see for yourself.  I’m sure you will find at least one or two outfits you will love…or three….or four or five……

FASHION: League

~*~ League ~*~
~*~ Designer:  Nena Janus ~*~

It’s Friday!  It’s a three-day weekend!  IT’S BLOGGGGGGG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m getting back on the blogging treadmill and I’m giving myself a great boost with this designer.  Nena is the wonderful designer behind League.  When I was first introduced to League, a friend showed me a pic of one of her designs on SLX.  From that day, I knew League was going to be an awesome place to find one of a kind creations.

League has grown from originally being focuses primarily on steampunk-influenced designs to just fun outfits (still keeping some awesome apocalyptic offerings!).  But why does League appeal to me?  Well, that’s simple.  The creations are just amazing to look at.  The detailing in the littlest things such as buttons and laces to the patterns of colors…. I’m not sure, but I think a lot of Nena does is hand drawn.  But…I’m just guessing.

Her creations are sleek….they are fun….they are cool.  You’ll be able to see that almost immediately when you scan my coveted items below, which is only a sampling of what League offers.  Nena has also recently dived into skin design and from what I hear, she has done a wonderful job doing so.  I would have bought and blogged a skin too….but…you ALL know by now…I SUCK ASS at skin reviews lol!  The most I will see is “it’s pretty!!!  thank you!!!” 🙂 I leave skin reviews to those bloggers that have the knowledge to review it intelligently!!!

Ok, off track!  Back to the Leagueness!!!!  CHECK IT OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I’m a texture junkie (or is this not news to anyone?).  I completely fall in love with clothing that has the most amazing textures – both in design and pattern.

That’s why I love Zaara’s stuff.  Her texture talent is amazing.  Some of her clothes have such realistic textures that they appear ready to jump out of the screen.  Mix that with her passion for Indian-inspired couture and you have amazing and unique works of passion.

So, with that introduction done, just simply take a look for yourself.  Details follow each picture.

FASHION: Nyte’N’Day

~* Nyte’N’Day *~
~* Designer:  Nyte Caligari *~

Ok, so I was working on this post for a few days because first, SL decided to pull an interesting trick and not give me pieces to packages I purchased from Nyte’N’Day – which was later resolved and quickly so by Nyte (thank you!!!).  Second, for some foolish reason, I thought I could fit five pics in one row for a blog post.  Yeah….doesn’t really work lol!

I have fond memories of NND (hey! I’m allowed to initialize! so :op!) as being one of the very first stores I frequented as a shopper and blooming shopaholic.  I remember the old build with the two rather narrow staircases in the middle and watching myself plummet to the ground because I still had trouble negotiating stairs with no railings or walls.  But the clothes….the clothes were great.  I remember buying them (at a great price too!), putting them on, looking at my av, and going “wow”.  Something for every mood and the detailing was great.

Not much has changed recently (except the build, thank goodness! :op).  I still walk in the door and stare in amazement at the numerous offerings, each wonderfully detailed in rich colors to suit whatever mood I’m in:  fancy, casual, sexy…..even weird!  Nyte does such wonderful work and I smile each time I see a new release.

So to give you a taste, I have highlighted some of my favs below.  Most of them are rather recent, but even the oldies are guaranteed goodies!

Nyte'N'DayNyte'N'Day

So I guess this is my “above the knee” group lol!  Just look at the colors…very yummy.  And I only boosted the color 30%.  I think my absolute fav of the group is Piccilo.  It’s just the cutest little summery dress/date dress/flirty dress/etc.etc.etc.  The cut, the flexi, the pattern…I just love it.  But each one of these is great and just by looking, you can immediately see how your style changes with each one.  Variety….is wonderful.

Nyte'N'Day

From above the knee to floor length… These are great dresses.  I think my fav of the bunch here is Filly.  The corset-style on the top accentuates the curves.  And we know that us girls love our curves!  Again, colors are rich and the styles are amazing.

Nyte'N'Day

And on to the “show some skin” group! :o) Hard to pick a fav here.  Entice is gorgeous lingerie (I think Jelly is having an impact on me again…where did all this pink come from?).  Frayed is teasingly sexy.  And Evade is just gorgeous.  Too difficult to pick one.  Love ’em all.

Nyte'N'Day

And this would be the “oh yes…there are pants” group.  My fav is Ginger (duh!).  It’s casual and sexy and I loooooove the belt.  But Phant has a great pattern and Incal is awesome in casual (there is a hoodie even though you can’t see it). 

You can see from above the endless amounts of variety and versatility that you can find at NND.  Nyte creates a style for every mood, so basically she is just encouraging us shopaholics! ;op

I would also like to mention that some of her creations have a purple (woot!) version that is usually sold separately with the profits going to the Lupus Canada organization for research into the disease and how to eventually cure it.  Purple rawks!

If you’ve never stopped by NND before, you should now.  There will undoubtedly be at least one thing there for you….and then another one…and then another…
