Treasures of the Orient

One of the things you can count on when you purchase from Zaara, is that none of their designs are ever ever ‘look-alike.’ You’re going to find something fresh and interesting, not derivative. You can always expect rich textures, often with Near and Far East elements to them, beautiful garment lines, and a focus on detail. Their Sumana Lingerie release is no different, and it proudly upholds the Zaara tradition of excellence. Released back in August of 2010, Sumana features a strapless demi-cup bra, wide corset-style garter-belt, panties and stockings. The fabric choices step away from the usual: no tawdry lace or delicate tulle, they’ve brought us lush Oriental influences in satin. The fabrics are elegant and the Asian style floral patterns have a crispness that is remarkable, given that all of Zaara’s products are hand drawn. What’s “Just Right”: The pleating on the garter-belt/corset piece is unusual and adds a very elegant and couture feel to the garment.

Quite a bit new from Fantasia, including 25L Tuesday items, so hold on to your socks!

"Chill" is a winter variation of panther furs. Leather pants, gathered into a loincloth with loose, open hips and ragged hem. A poncho-like fur top with loose sleeves. Available in 3 leather/fur options.

"Cling" is a tight, clingy sweater dress with a nordic printed knit apron top. Perfect alone, over leather pants (which is by the books Gorean!) or even over the newly released Stockins! The top prim is texture change on touch, so mix and match to your heart's content!

Now, for 25L Tuesday!

"Glovez'n'Stockinz'nSox"-JUST 25L
A set of stripey gloves and stockings and socks, all perfectly matched to the "Cling" outfit (though they'll go with pretty much anything). Great accessories for any role!

               Hello, I am very pleased to bring you today the new releases for this season of LeLutka.I hope my photographs will help you see the texturing and sculpt work that as always is superb.
One of my favorite pieces is the FOXTROT dress because the ruffles and the sash are just incredible.
I always find it great that LeLutka takes care of their accessories to complement their apparel designs, in this season, we see two hats in different styles that will surely complete your wardrobe.
Overall I find many connections and touches of different styles in the collection which is very nice to see, I believe it's appealing to everyone in their own way.
Lastly, I really love the little details that LeLutka takes into consideration, such as proper sizing for walking, stitching, glitch layers and the dual possibilities for 2.0 users and previous viewer ones.

Naughty or Nice? Bratty or..?

OK, I confess: I love holiday themed clothing. I adore the costumes of Halloween, I grin and squee at adorable bunny outfits, snicker at festive St. Patrick’s day themes, and feel an odd sense of pride and pleasure at 4th of July ensembles. Is it any wonder that Christmas is one of my favorite times of year? There are a plethora of outfits designed for the holiday season and I’ve been checking in with some of the designers who have really impressed us this year to see if they were doing any special releases. One that jumped right off the page at me was the Carrie Bridger / Carrie’s Lingerie releases. She has over half a dozen, but the two that drew my eye the fastest was the Bratty and the Rachael. I visited their store and was immediately greeted by one of the customer service reps, Punky Teardrop. We chatted a bit about the store and the holiday items being offered. It was really lovely to have an actual salesperson to talk with, rather than a bot or silence, and I appreciated her help.

Well, I'm back from Mexico my my, when did winter get here?!? Must be time to break out the knits and sweaters and pants, oh my! In short...the Winter Wall is back at Fantasia. An ice block wall covered in winter goodness, some new, some from last season, but all sure to keep your character warm no matter what wintery theme they face.

"Tassel" is a big, fluffy, warm looking knit sweater with tasselled edges. The fabric hangs low in front and back, but gathers high on the hip to show off at least a little sexy thigh, while the neckline dips to show other assets. Available for $L250 each, it's available in 5 pale colors. Try it alone, or with some tight pants for a more mainstream look!

PS, totally un-asked for plug here, but if you like the barely parted lips look in this ad, run over to Nomine! Not only do they have great skins (like the one featured here) and clothing, but the owner recently released a freebie enhancement pack including the parted lips look, freckles and more.… Read the restImage

Simply Stunning

Second Life lingerie superstars BlackLace have teamed up with a real-life corset company for a really cool promotion: buy one of the SL collection – which mirrors a RL design – and receive a $25.00 off code to purchase a corset in RL! That’s pretty hecka cool! The partnership is with Vollers Corsets and the discounted corset can be purchased from It looks like we have a total of six releases to look forward to: Stunning, Salacious, Dazzling, Enchanting, Ravishing, and Worship. The first and second of the series are now available – Stunning and Salacious – and they’re quite a treat! The first thing that caught my eye about the Stunning corset was the rich interplay of lace and satin. The whole of the corset is overlaid with a large-pattern lace. I selected the crimson, though it’s also available in gold and a burnished pewter. In comparing the pictures between the Vollers corset and their corset, they really nailed the design.
