Punk Princess



     These boots though! SQUEE! Fitmesh too, which means they work well with my mesh avatars and thigh high (which is hard if not impossible to wear with mesh avatars unless it is fitmesh). I know everyone else is going to probably be styling these all tomboy and rugged, but I really think they needed a girly flare. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to pair them with a frilly, girly skirt and this one from Kaithleen's is one of my new favorites in that category. Of course this needed a corset, tattoos, and lots of punk style jewerly to complete the look. The skull crown is just icing on the cake. Punk Princess! SQUEE!

Hot Pink for Lexi



      I blogged about The Lexi Project a few days ago, so if you want to know what it is in detail click that link. Today I am just enjoying some of the items I bought. You can find my Cynful dress in four cute ombre shades donated exclusively for the event. Everything at The Lexi Project is 100% donation to help Lexi Zelin. Everyone that knows me knows that I am a sucker for anything pink and I just love this dress. It is also made with fitmesh sizes for Maitreya, Physique, Belleza V/I/F, Cute/Phat Azz, and Ghetto. So, go shop and donate to help Lexi at the same time. There are sooo many cute things with over 350 designers donating items for the event.

I love Sparkles!



      I am again wearing some of the amazing glittery, sparkly textures that you can find at collabor 88 this month. I continue to be totally impressed and excited whenever I wear any of them. This dress is by Foxes and it is not only gorgeous, it also comes in fitmesh sizes for Physique, Maitreya, and Belleza Isis/Freya. I feel so pretty and sexy in this dress! I thought about fatpacking the sparkly ones and I really think I should have done that because I want more of them. They are so pretty. My cute updo is new by Doe at the current round of Season's Story. This event ends July 31st so you only have a few more days to get the items you want at the event. 
      Also ending July 31st is My Attic and my NanTra selfie stick pose set is at this event for only 95L. Last, my shoes are noteworthy. They are a special discount offer from N-core. You get 8 colors of these clear strappy shoes for only 395L. It is like getting 8 shoes for the price of one and they are made for N-core, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP high feet.… Read the rest

Attitude is Everything


      July 26th is Bandanna Day in Second Life closing out an incredible Hair Fair that has raised a lot of money for Wigs for Kids. My Bandanna was made by Lovely Disarray. I am showing my support for this charity event in SL and all of the people affected by cancer. My mom had colon cancer a few years ago and it was really horrible. After surgery and chemotherapy, she beat it and has continued to do so (YAY!). It made me chuckle inside to put this bandanna on in SL because my mom never wore one. She bought a wig and wore that and we do that every day in SL. We are all bald in Second Life!

      I was curious about how this related to real life events and so I looked it up.  International Bandanna Day is sometime in October with different groups celebrating it on the 18th, 25th, and 30th. It was originally started by CanTeen an Australian organization that supports teens that have cancer.

The Lexi Project


       I am continually amazed by the generosity of our SL community and continually saddened by the loss and hardships we have experienced. A beautiful and talented 28 year old lady with a six year old daughter has been diagnosed with stage three Hodgekin's Lymphoma, Lexi Zelin. Lexi is the owner of Angelred Couture. If you are not familiar, I bet you have worn many of her designs anyway because she makes amazing 3D template mesh that many designers around the grid use in their creations.


Here is Lexi in real life next to one of her cute full perm creations. 

" The Lexi Project, a collaborative fund-raiser event founded by Toxxic Rhiannyr (alterego owner) & Heather Smithson, created to bring Second Life brands together in hopes to raise money for one of our own, Lexi Zelin/ Owner of AngelRed Couture." - The Lexi Project Blog

      There are currently 350 stores that have signed up and donated at least one 100% donation item to the event, WOW!… Read the rest

Everything is Coming Up Daisies



      This has been a great month for Gacha addicts and that is saying a lot when it is not an Arcade month. We started the month with OMG Gacha which ended yesterday and then Epiphany started too. Overall I think Epiphany is a really new, intuitive take on Gacha. For people that don't sell their duplicates, it offers a really interesting way to use them. You can redeem your duplicate or unwanted items for points and when you get to 25 points you can trade them in for exclusive items. I got these cute Breathe daisy shoes and Rare clutch and so I traded my points in for this matching headband. 
       As I said overall I think Epiphany is a wonderful idea, however if you do the math and trade in all 50L machines, this headband cost me at least 1,250L.  I like this headband and its cool that it is exclusive and won't be resold later. I can change the colors of the headband and flowers making it like a fatpack, but I still think 25 points (1,250L) is a bit high (for any of the exclusives).… Read the rest

Fetish Friday: Graves has Omega, Physique, and TMP appliers


     Graves has nearly 30 outfits, some new and some updated former releases, that now contain Omega, Physique, and The Mesh Project appliers. This is great news for mesh body and body part wearers. Providing all three appliers is also pretty rare in the fetish fashion community. I am impressed! What is even cooler is that if you have a previous purchase that has now been updated with appliers, you can simply go to the re-delivery terminal and have your outfit re-delivered to get the update. That is what I did today. I have previously blogged this outfit here, but I have to say a mesh body improves it 100 times over. I love mesh bodies!


  You can do the same thing with Letis Tattoos. All of your previous purchases can be redelivered and they now include tons of mesh body appliers. Graves and Letis both use Caspervend. You can also go to the Caspervend website, https://caspervend.casperdns.com/ and sign in with your avatar name and password to see your previous purchases and re-deliver them directly to yourself without even having to go anywhere in SL.

Sail Away With Me



      Kaithleen's latest release at My Attic comes with both a Slink and a Maitreya fitmesh size (and I could not be happier about that!). These floral ankle length dresses are just the thing you would need on a cruise vacation which is the theme for this round of My Attic. This dress is available at the event for only 95L until July 31st.

All great things must come to an end


     My Slink Obsession ends tomorrow, July 22nd. It will be the last day to get the event items at 50% off and there is so much amazing fashion. If there were any items you still want or maybe another color of something you have already purchased and love, now is the time to visit MSO. Today I am wearing Somnia's shirt and polish, Appliers R Us garter socks, and using Izzie's ring and pose- all can be found at the event at a discount for one more day. MSO will be back in October with another great round.


   I have also got some original mesh jewelry from a new store, Secret Love. My necklace and rings in the above picture both come from Secret Love. The designer sent me a nice note telling me that she thought my blog was stunning. When I opened up her jewelry, I was excited that the feeling is mutual!  Check it out on Marketplace or in SL.

Rosetta


     My Attic opens tomorrow July 21st and Livalle will be releasing these adorable flats. While at the event you can pick them up for only 95L which is a steal for original mesh shoes. You can find the Livalle Rosetta flats in 11 colors and are made for the flat Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.  

     My outfit is new by Ducknipple under the label 20FIVE. I am mixing two outfits the Marilyn bikini and the Adri skirt. They each come with a 5 texture change HUD.

Syzygy


Definition- Syzygy: A kind of unity, an alignment of three celestial bodies. 

     NanTra created a really amazing new pose set, Syzygy, that is at the current round of Genre. This pose set was created with models in mind and the animations move smoothly when transitioning between the 8 poses and their mirrors that are included in this set. It would be really cool to see this set on the runway.


     I have been continuing to enjoy all the sparkly items at collabor 88. I can't believe all the gorgeous textures. I am so impressed! I am loving this Under the Sea theme.

"Ravenclaw," said The Sorting Hat

   
     I have taken a few different quizzes and I always get sorted into house Ravenclaw, described as able to learn quickly, very wise, original, creative, and competitive. I must admit The Sorting Hat seems to know what it is about. You can take this quiz and find out which house you would be in  and then visit The Wizarding Faire 2015 and buy your appropriate house color in FATEplay's new fantasy outfit Wright. I am wearing Eagle in blue and silver. The outfit comes in sizes for men, women, and children.  Cae is also at the faire with three wizard inspired necklaces. I am wearing Seeker's Quest. I took my pictures at the Wizarding Faire. It is a recreation of Hogwarts and it is really amazing. You should visit and check out the build. I enjoyed exploring the castle.



     Each FATEplay outfit comes with a wearable, rid-able broom or you can also buy the broom seperately. The coolest thing happens when you fly- your avatar AND cape animate.… Read the rest

Fetish Friday: Fitmesh

 

     I have been looking for fitmesh fetish fashion in shiny latex and have not found much, but I did find corsets and leather. I can always be happy in corsets, leather, and boots! There is a fitmesh dress in shiny latex made for Slink Physique by Stellar at the current round of My Slink obsession that Kirsten blogged, HERE. It might be enough to make me get the body it is so hot, but for now I just have the Maitreya Lara body. One of the Maitreya updates are these sexy leather pants. I previously bought them in this color (bronze) and all I had to do to get the fitmesh version made for my body was get them re-delivered from the re-delivery terminal. My corset top is from Just Because. The cami top changes 12 textures via HUD. If you see fitmesh latex items, please let me know.

     My shiny, metallic Bax boots are new. Bax made them in a variety of metallic textures, leather, and suede versions. I really love the textures on the metallic ones.… Read the rest

Ice Dreams


     I have been loving all the shiny, shimmery, irridescent textures at collabor 88 this round. I really can't get enough of them. I just have a cute look of the day today pairing one of my new shimmery shirts with some older favorites. My original mesh Maai shoes are made for Maitreya and Slink and my Maai thigh highs come in a variety of colors and prints and include Slink feet,  Physique, Omega, and TMP appliers. 
I also found some new windlights that I am LOVING made by Katya Valeska. They are mostly soft, pastel, and bright. You can download them here

Oh My Gacha July 2015


     OMG you guys, Oh My Gacha! has so many cute things. Hiram and I went yesterday and I of course went nuts pulling machines. I got so much cute though! Doe (formerly ploom) is there as a sponsor with this adorable one side curl hairdo and also with this narwhal too. I am holding one of the two Rares- Like a Princess Narwhal. Paper Rabbit is a Doe brand for all the cute things the designer (Helyanwe) makes. The hair comes with a regular version and a Two-Tone version so you can wear it solid, or two-tone like I am showing it. I am using the pastel color HUD. My alterego skin, le fil casse fitmesh shorts, Izzie's choker,  and Breathe shoes are all also found at OMG Gacha July event. You really don't want to miss this and you only have until July 24th!

Another Perspective on Frustration in SL Fashion

   
     A newer blogger wrote a post about the frustrations of fashion blogging  and it made me want to discuss my thoughts on not only blogging, but also designing- so really my perspective on the fashion industry in second life with my experience over the last nine years.
       I was a designer in SL from 2006 to 2010. I loved 2D clothing. I owned Sexy in Pink, abbreviated **SIP** in all the folders bought by my customers. Painting that was so much fun! However second life moved to 3D clothing and I had (and still have) no idea how to make that (even though I have tried). Blender is my nemesis. I drew all my clothing by hand. I started in a time when there were no templates, those did not exist. So the thought of not making my own clothing was just not for me. It HAD to be my own original designs or nothing. Now while I was a designer, I was totally clueless about bloggers. At first I did not even know that they existed at all, for like the first two years of my store.… Read the rest

Honey, I’m Good


     Kaithleen's has a new comfy tank top with a fitmesh size. I tried mine with both my Physique and my Lara and it worked with both with a few alphas. I think this is perfect for comfy casual summer looks. You can find this tank at the Mesh Avenue Event. 
     My fun necklace is new by Cae. This is part of Mix which is a new HUD-based shopping event. The event items are organized by sales, exclusives, and new releases. The Illuminati jewelry set is a new release and can be found in the main Cae store for the duration of this month's Mix event. 
     Hair Fair 2015 is in full swing and of course the sims are full. They do have a few side sims that you can cam shop from which I thought was really thoughtful event planning! They also have a wonderful blog and detailed map. I LOVE events with maps. This event is always so well planned every year. My goal was to find a new-to-me hair store that I thought was fabulous. I tried on this Fiore hair and I love it and I also love the blond textures which is always a big deal for me in finding hair.

AlterEgo at OMG Gacha


     OMG Gacha starts July 10th and I have seen a lot of great previews. AlterEgo has two new skins at the event, one in honey and one in caramel skin tones. I am wearing janae in honey skin tone in this post. This is a beautiful skin so make sure you check it out when OMG Gacha opens in a few days. 

        Look at all the great makeups that will be available in this machine! Gacha is a great way to get skins, imo, because it is usually a lot more inexspensive than buying them normally. You just have to try your luck to see which ones you get and if you are a Gacha addict like me- that just makes it more fun! These skins come with brown brows (shown), dark brows, and no brow options. Good Luck at OMG Gacha! (I will include a teleport link after the event opens on the 10th).

Mango


     I have a cute summery look of the day today incorporating a bunch of great new pieces. My outfit is from Ducknipple and I mixed two outfits together- Mango Patterns and Solids. I also tinted my top to make it match the blue in the skirt perfectly (click this tutorial if you need help doing that). My scrolled jewelry set is new by Cae at the current round of Cosmopolitan and I made it tri-tone to really show all of the intricate details in the design. My Bushu shoes and A:S:S nailpolish can be found at My Slink Obsession. This nailpolish looks like it was made for the colors in this skirt pattern, how cool! I had fun playing with my version 2 slink hands and painting my nails each a different color.  I am cute and ready for a day by the ocean!

Everglow at Candy Fair 2015


     Poses make all of our pictures possible and some of my favorites come from Everglow. They have two new pose sets, Candy and Yummy, at the Candy Fair. Everglow poses are sets that I continually go back to because they are always amazing and these new ones keep up that trend. Make sure to try the demo when you visit the event. Each pack contains 10 poses. Here are some of the other poses in the Candy pose pack:
