I Just Can’t Seem To Shake You, Emily.

One rule I’ve always had is “DEMO. DEMO. DEMO!!!!” But on occasion, I forget. It never really ends well. Case in point… this absolutely beautiful dress from B.C.C.!

Style - I Just Can't Seem To Shake You, Emily

The Emily Romantic Corset Dress by B.C.C. for The Seasons Story is lovely and so completely my style. I was so excited to wear it while we’ve been on vacation that in my haste, I didn’t demo. Unfortunately, the dress is “standard sized” pretty much in name only. The Small does fit me, but then I noticed something really really wrong with the arms.

That doesn't fit

At first I thought it was my Slink hands because sometimes longer sleeves don’t fit quite right over them. But as you can see, my hands stop well before the sleeve starts. I tried moving up to a size Medium, but for some reason, that made the dress completely jam into my shoulders, although the opposite should have been true. I even went up to a size Large, which was not really that much larger than the Small and came with its own set of issues. Then I tried changing my shape, but that didn’t really work that well. I sent a notecard to the creator a couple of days ago to ask if maybe I could get a new alpha that goes down a little further on the sleeves, but I don’t know how much that’s going to fix the problem and I haven’t heard anything back anyway.

That all being said, this dress is really really pretty. If you want to buy it, definitely demo it first!

And Then She Returns

What? Two posts in one day? What kind of craziness is this?! But seriously, y’all, I had to do another because there is just so much awesome stuff out there!

Rebel Hope is at The Liaison Collaborative this month with the Lia dress and the Destiny thigh high boots. Sexy!!

Style - And Then She Returns - Boots

Short, tight, and showing skin in all the right places, this dress is ridiculously hot. But make sure you wear underpants because I just upskirted myself and hello dolly! The boots are just awesome, too! I adore the zipper detail up the back and the larger zipper pull that goes over the thin heel.

Pairing this look up with the Thalia hair and crown from Truth for the Mystic Realms Faire made me feel like Persephone, queen of the underworld. She goes back to the underworld in the fall, you know.

And speaking of the underworld…

Style - And Then She Returns - Nails & Rings

Stellar made fantastic nail polish and a matching rings set called Hellraiser for My Slink Obsession this month! The rings are all together and fit the casual Slink hands the best, but they are mod so you can make sure that you get the best fit. And the nail polish is a glossy red to black fade that looks great if you have your nails at any length. I just chose the pointed nails to complete my look today.

I promise, last post here today. But more tomorrow!

Party Girls Don’t Get Hurt

Have you been out to FaMESHed yet? Or to Truth for his new releases? Are you waiting for My Attic? So many questions! :)

Style - Party Girls Don't Get Hurt

FaMESHed really has been spectacular this month, and I am loving the Tie Dye Tanks and Sparta leather pants by Cracked Mirror! I feel like if you go out to clubs or out dancing a lot, you’ll make a splash out on the dance floor in this outfit!

Truth released a couple of new hairs recently, and Cameo is a great party hair! It’s very full and if you use one of the dipped colors, you get that extra bit of “rockstar” to your look.

My Attic opens up on the 21st and L.Warwick will be there with the new Elation heels. I love love the retro feel of these, along with the awesome textures! They’re for the Slink medium feet, and there is also a pair to fit the upcoming Belleza mesh body.

Have a great shopping day!

Just A Walk In The Park

The Home and Garden Expo is OPEN!! This is one of my favorite events of the year and I was thrilled to be invited back as a blogger for the third year in a row. The H&G Expo raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life, which donates money to the American Cancer Society.

Funky Junk is part of the Expo this year and I’m loving the Small Garden Park!

Style - Just A Walk In The Park

I’ll admit, I’m the worst at landscaping, so it’s awesome for me when people put together things that I can just throw out and it’s instapretty. There are four sections of this, 3 with trees and one with the little pond that has fish. [There is another version that does not have the pond.] I put this in the middle of a bunch of trees, but since it’s all contained in the brick walls, you can really put it anywhere you want. The Small Garden Park with the pond is 39 land impact [the one without the pond is 30] and currently available at the H&G Expo.

The Home and Garden Expo runs until September 28th.

Though This Feeling I Can’t Change

I’m not really the dressy type these days. You’re much more likely to find me in jeans and flats. But once in a while, my “fancy” comes out!

Style - Though This Feeling I Can't Change

Style - Though This Feeling I Can't Change -2

The Liaison Collaborative is OPEN and how fab is the Narcissist dress by Valentina E?? It comes in two options, one with the closed high front [which I'm wearing because I'm a lady] and one with the open front to show off plenty of cleavage. Both have the low open back. The jeweled necklace comes with a texture change option, as well.

Collabor88 is going strong and you have to check out the new Gloria heels by Fri.day! These shoes are for the Slink high feet, and they are indeed high! The heel is super tall and the glittery strap snakes up your foot in a flattering way. You neeeed these heels in your life.

Oh, do you like my little bird friends? They’re out at TLC this month from Half+Deer! They’re from The Mad Scientist’s Bird and Cage set. The little metal birds’ eyes pulsate and glow, but it’s not distracting at all.

Happy shopping!
