Alysha's Second Life

Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession


Been a bit of hiatus due to an unexpected cold that knocked me on my butt.  But I’m back and getting back on track!

This past week’s challenge was “It’s a ‘Formality’ Thing”, with the focus on formalwear.  Our participating bloggers this week came out with some amazing combinations, in both their attire and their backgrounds. 

So I choose to close out this week’s with a slightly different format.  I’m grabbing their photos from their blogs and posting them here for all to see.  You can click on each picture to go directly to their post to get all the juicy details.

As for me, I just had to show this gorgeous dress from Inndyra Originals.  I think it’s the pinned up side that does it for me.  It’s just smexy as all heck.

So here’s mine.  And then there’s everyone else!


Details for me:

Dress:  Indyra Originals – Chere Glace (Amethyst)
Earrings:  Indy&Co – House of Julii Earrings (Amethyst)
Hair:  Truth – Padma (Mahogany)
Skin:  Exodi – Isolde (Nuit Tone/#17 Makeup)
Nails:  Exodi – Sculpted Nails v2.0 (Plum)
Poses:  TorridWear

Check out these awesome bloggers!

Aren’t they all pretty?!?!?!!??!?

Details for this week’s challenge can be found here.

Keep it hopping!

Sorry folks, I’m a little behind this week.  I’ve just had a strange week.  I beg forgiveness.

Here you will find all those that participated in this week’s challenge and bonus color challenge.  The details of said challenges can be found here.

Since it’s almost my bedtime right now, I’m going to leave this post in its place and put links in tomorrow of those that have plurked me.  Love me please.  I’m too tired and drained to beg any more than that.

Love to all!

Hola peeps!

I apologize for being a bit behind.  After an amazing vacation in Myrtle Beach, I was simply unable to update links from last week’s challenge and post the details for this week’s last night.   Too many things to do, not enough time before I promptly pass out in bed.  Please forgive me, my dear challengers and challenge followers.  I will work on getting everything updated as quickly as my little fingers can type.

In the meantime, onwards and upwards!  Week 3 is upon us and you can read up on this week’s challenge details here!

Plurkers can leave me their links on Plurk.  Non-plurkers can leave their links in comments here.

Have fun!

I wouldn’t be much of a sport if I didn’t do my own challenge, let alone the first one….

I have decided that the best way for me to do the challenges is post mine on Sunday to finish out the current week’s challenge and put up details for the next week’s.  So I sayeth, so it shall be done!

I saw an awful lot of amazing posts… many people digging way down, a lot of them noting how they just deleted a lot of old stuff (I have NO idea how you people do that.  I have not deleted anything since I rezzed lol!).  Amazing creations and combos came out this week.  I hope mine measures up.

The skin is the first “real” skin I had after leaving newbiedom.  And it was given to me the night my shape was made….by a very dear friend who took advantage of the fact that it was 4AM for me and she was in Australia and thought it was keen time to drag me kicking and screaming to update my look.  Hence, the birth of my blog.  That was mid-September, 2007.   Wow, my av is old.  So that is Naughty Designs skin.  The only one I have.

The outfit was kind of cool to put together.  I think a lot of newer bloggers or fashionistas read my blog and only think I can blog what is given to me in whole outfits.   Well, I may be an oldie myself, but I still dress my little barbie av with as much creativity as you do, kiddies!   I remember getting the Girlie outfit.  I think I wore it for a good week before someone told me they saw enough of it.  It comes with pants and a skirt, but I desperately wanted to wear jeans.  And you can’t go wrong with Celestial Studios.  You just can’t.  The belt from Nyte’N’Day gives it that last detail that you just know you need.

Shiny Things was one of the first stores I discovered for some awesome jewelry.  Fallingwater has some amazing creations and the Savage set is one of them.  Awesome to look at, amazing to wear.

I remember when the Fedorable came out for Hair Fair.  It was all over the feeds.  And for good reason.  It’s a great creation.  Torrid is greatly missed from the fashion scene.

The shoes from Periquita are the “newest” purchase of the outfit, having been acquired in September of 2008.  They’re cute.   Go ahead and look for a while. I don’t mind.

My poses are from Long Awkward Pose, who was one of the first pose stores I truly spent tons of Lindens at and I’m sure made Dove a happy girl in the process. 

So there you have it.  How’d I do?

BLOG:  Plurky Challenge #1:  Oldies But Goodies


Hair:  TorridWear – Fedorable Loveless (Wheat)
Jewelry:  Shiny Things – Savage Silver & Tanzanite Set
Pants:  Celestial Studios – Vintage Embellished Jeans
Top:  Girlie – Juliet Linen
Belt:  Nyte’N’Day – Basic Black Belt
Shoes:  Periquita – Mary Squares (Brown)

Sooo my little brain came up with a little idea….


Many people seem to like! 😀

Via Plurk, I offered up the idea of weekly themes (challenges if you feel so inclined to call them) for the SL blogging community to help keep us on our toes and drum up inspiration and unity.  Apparently, more than just one person liked the idea.  And then I smiled.  Big.

Whilst I will try to own up to my own challenges, I will try to post weekly those that have decided to take up that week’s challenge.  Nothing is mandatory or required.  It is meant to be fun and inspiring.  If you would like to be kept up-to-date with the next theme, please friend me on Plurk.

To my plurky bloggers:  I will try my best to keep the weekly lists up-to-date as I see them posted on Plurk.  If you notice after a day that I haven’t added you, please send me a private Plurk and I’ll add you on.
