No pretty pictures this post.  I was online for a couple of hours last night with my SL family when someone dropped me a link to a Blogger Wall of Shame for the FFL event that was just past.  No, I’m not gonna link to it.  I’m not going to get into any specifics either.  I had a very valid reason why I didn’t blog, and I feel it isn’t anyone else business why I didn’t blog it.  I sent a very nasty NC to the head organizer, and now she knows why.  I guess I’m supposed to get my ass out of bed and take care of SL stuff before RL.  I’ll remember that the next time.  I’m sure people will know why I didn’t blog shortly, you know how SL gossip spreads around.  When you do get it, you can leave your apologies below.

Accessories Make the Look – LOTD 1/7/2012

Today’s look is all about the accessories.  I started with a very basic outfit, using mesh pieces from Maitreya and celoe.  The fun starts with the accessories!  Brand new mesh shoes and clutch from Hucci forms the color palette of the outfit.  Necklaces from Zaara, earrings from Amorous, and a very funky hairstyle from new hair store Likeli completes this look.

Inaya is a skin store that I’ve admired from afar but never took the plunge in getting a skin from there.  Today changes that fact; I have a lovely ethnic skin to show off named Audjyan. Audjyan comes in three tones for only 1000L: pale, tan and dark with bare faced versions and a teeth option.  I didn’t find any visible seams and the skintones are just lovely.  I do have one concern about it, the lips are drawn way outside the lip template, making the lips very full. I also wish that there were a non-pushup size option for the breast.  Anyhow, this is still a very lovely skin and I invite all of you dark skin lovers like myself to go down to Inaya and try a demo for Audjyan.

Maybe Turkey Day? – LOTD 11/24/11

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone that celebrates it. It may not be entirely obvious, but Thanksgiving inspired my look today.  This is a very typical me look, take a cute dress, throw on a jacket and heels and instant pulled together look.  I know you’re wondering by now, how did Thanksgiving inspire this look?If you have been following this blog and my post, you probably know by now that I’m Southern.  So all of last night and most of today was spent in the kitchen.  My RL outfit will consist of sweats and tees. Since SL doesn’t require staying up all night to make a feast, I can play the part of the glamorous hosts here.  Hucci has been cranking out the releases lately, so I chose the Noni dress as the foundation of my outfit.  For a little contrast, I chose the funky grey jacket from justB (they are closing really soon so hurry!). Orange jewelry from Caroline’s Jewelry to add a pop and black heels from N Core completes this look! Get This Look!Read the rest

Wendy is Unique

I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things with blogging, and what better way to get back into the groove with doing a skin review.  Unique Megastore recently released Wendy to its line up, and just for today I’m going pale to show you her.

Wendy has the familiar Unique Megastore features: sexy breast option, hairbase option, plus freckles and pubes tattoos. She also comes in twelve makeups, two of which features the open mouth/teeth that Unique does so well. The skin has a very pretty face but I do have some concerns.  Some details were very light and needed more shading and highlights, like the philtrum. I think this may be a new trend among skin makers, as there are several skins out currently that features that.  Also, there is a seam on the back of neck and very visible skin difference. Aside from those issues, you should defiantly stop by Unique Megastore to pick up demos. Other Items Used:
Hairbase/Hair: Amacci Hair Knot – Brown Sugar
Lashes: [ glow ] studio – Eyelashes.… Read the rest

Demure Sexy

Being a child of the South and basically brow-beaten to act like a lady, its hard for me to show my sexy side.  Even in SL, where you don’t have to worry about having too much body fat, stretchmarks and the cellulite.  The latest releases from Hucci, lets you be all the sexy you want to be without the slutty. If you haven’t figured out already, Hucci is my number one place to go when I need to be sexy.  No one does sexy tight dresses like Eboni Khan does, as evident with her latest release. Who said that you couldn’t be sexy during the winter? Get These Looks: Used in all looks:

Vintage Me – LOTD 11/11

When I started SL four years ago, I had a mission to always dress in vintage wear.  I was going through that stage in real life, and sought out everything that said 40′s and 50′s wear to me.  Of course I’ve taken a very big detour in that philosophy today, but today there is nothing sexier than wearing a tight pencil skirt with line nylons and sky-high stilettos. The Vintage Fair, opening today at 4PM SLT, delivers all of the sexy vintage styles plus more.Today’s Look features items from the Vintage Fair.  The striking and sexy dress from Ingenue took my breath away when I first saw it.  It uses a mesh panel instead of the SL standard skirt, which makes for a sleeker and more precise that anyone can wear without editing their shape.  I paired it with the breathtaking jewelry set  from Amorous, which is becoming my go to jewelry store.  Make sure you check out these items plus tons more when the Vintage Fair opens today!

Big Mamma’s Jacket – LOTD 7/22/2011

This look was inspired by the lovely jacket from d. Select that reminds me of one of my treasured possessions is an old quilted jacket. I was lucky to have known my great-grandparents, and even luckier to have two of my great-grandparents still alive and well into advanced age. Anyway, my great-grandmother, whom we lovely called Big Mamma, was a seamstress at times. She had this tradition that she handmade a quilt each time a grandchild got married. She passed away before I received my quilt. My grandmother, who was tasked with clearing out my Big Mamma’s belongings, beckoned me to come over to her home to pick up something. She handed me a suit covering and said to keep this to remember Big Mama by. I opened it and inside was a beautiful handmade jacket that my Big Mamma made during her younger years. Although I haven’t been able to wear the jacket because of the disappearance of winter in my parts, I cherish that jacket and hope to pass it down to my kids one day.… Read the restLOTD 7-22-2011

My Precious Ariel

I remember my very first days in SL. I found this magical place that played Jazz 24/7 in a beautiful ballroom. I wasn’t allowed in, however, because I didn’t have on a ballgown. I waited until I could muster up the lindens needed to buy a pretty ballgown and for about six months I lived on the ballroom floor dancing the days and nights away. These days I have no real need to wear ballgowns, but I simply cannot resist a beautiful full dress. This very lovely dress and couture hat from Agnes Finney fits the bill and makes me feel like the belle of the ball, wherever the ball may be.Get This Look: Body:

Ms. Jolie

As you can probably tell from my posts, I really love skins. I especially love trying out skins from brands on the rise. Filthy Skins have been getting tons of coverage of late from the blogs, but because I primarily wear tan and dark skins I stayed away from them because they had a bit too much red undertones for my taste. The newest skin, Jolie, however impressed me so much that I photographed myself in pale tones, something that I never do. Jolie is available in six beautiful tones: Ivory, Pale, Sunkissed, Bronze, Cocoa and Expresso;  that are sure to please everyone. What about the reddish tones that I noted earlier? In the darker tones, there are a bit redder than I like but greatly toned down from previous releases.  In fact, the dark Expresso tone is almost perfection in my opinion. Jolie comes in fatpacks of eight makeups with tattoo cleavage layers for a steal price of L$1800. All in all a lovely skin for a very lovely price! Get This Look:

Lovely Vania

The Body Shop is a relatively new skin shop with a small but growing inventory that shows promise.  The skin I’m showing today, Vania, is one of the newest skin available, and its a beauty. Vania is available in a dark tone only, which of course immediately drawn me to it. I’m impressed that the tone is perfectly chocolate, not too much red or orange undertones as many other brands do. Another thing that drawn me to Vania is that it is a great deal, a single makeup is only L$490 and the fatpack is an incredibly insane price of L$1590. The skin includes pubes and pushups on tattoo and underwear layers. All in all a lovely skin for the pricetag, and of course its a must demo! Get This Look:

The makeups are just as pretty as you expect them to be.  Very summery color pallets for eyeshadows and lips ranging from barely there nudes to hot tamale reds.  All in all a very lovely skin and a must demo for everyone!
