Constance Stanbury’s secret

SMD- Constance Stanbury gown @ FGC

Constance Stanbury was known for two things, well many things but two that were most spoken of were her rose colored lips and her gorgeous gowns. Constance knew of the envious looks and hushed whispers among the ladies but she would never tell her secret. Though I did hear a rumor her modiste is none other than Silvan Moon Designs and Constance’s latest gown is soon to be the latest craze as the designers have made this floral be-decked ruffled treasure available at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival . There is a range of  soft colors and two dramatic and distinctive dark rares , each includes the gown and train in Maitreya and Slink fittings plus the lovely hat too.

Note the hair I am wearing is the  newest from Vanity Hair at On9, I am wearing the version with the veil though both are included, my subtle jewelry is from Zuri Jewelry. My parasol is actually a sky blue one from Junbug which I re-tinted, my pose is an older one that is designed to be used with parasols ( hooray for bento hands and being able to actually hold the parasol). The location I took this photo is in the garden area surrounding The White Armory – Silvan Moon Designs is the collaborative work of the owners/creators of The White Armory and Blue Moon Enterprise. As to the secret behind those rose colored lips- the Pink Fuel contribution to May Powder Pack.

Still she waits

She waits

A quick post as I find I have less time free , for now, although in a way I guess this is me in RL at the moment ( just replace the lingerie with some warm clothes). My Dad is slowly deteriorating and sleeping more and more, so I spend time waiting for him to wake up.. so that I can make sure he has something to eat, freshen up his room and bed, make sure he changes clothes, has any medicine he needs and knows I am there for him.. before he gets too tired and goes back to bed. Some days he is only awake for an hour before heading back to bed, then starts the housework, dishes, laundry and groceries/ errands. Now if it sounds like I am complaining I am not , for I would rather be sure Dad is cared for and safe as he is in the ” twilight” of life, but I do miss having a bit more time to spend on SL.

Anyway onto the glamorous scene here, my lingerie is Sami in fuchsia from Carries Lingerie – I am using the omega applier with the Maitreya body, and I must mention that there are a range of options on this hud so that you can choose different combinations of stockings, panties, corset .

The fantastic pose in the first picture is courtesy of Something Erotic- props n poses, called Her waiting game it includes a lovely red chaise but due to the color choices I tinted it really dark. My hair is from Monso , skin by YS&YS, I added makeup ( I forgot to note which appliers but I think they were some of the ones that came in the May Powder Pack for Lelutka)

Sweet Whispers

Epie, pearl, Azul @ On9

This month’s round of On9 features a lot of beautiful wedding related items, including this gorgeous soft dress from Azul. Epie comes in pearl coloring at this event and includes a range of sizings which you then add the layered skirts, these add beautiful movement and the lace texture is so delicate looking . Included are three head adornments, though I left off all the veils, I added the circlet of pale peach flowers which look lovely with the Jane hair from Monso- @ C88,( which also has add on flowers). My skin is Ilse from Skinnery and my eyes are omega appliers from Avi- Glam, the ballet slippers are an older un-rigged pair from Caverna Obscura ( they were in a gacha event). I’ve added a light slick of color to the lips with Oceane’s Just Kissed Lelutka applier , also available as an Omega applier. You will find Oceane’s products on the MP and at her Jewels Isle store, SLurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Jewels%20Isle/149/220/24

Both of my poses are older releases from Something New- props n poses, above is the Sweet Whispers pose, and below one of the set called Touch of the lips. Look for these and more poses at the mainstore : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Yawgoo/23/63/1201

Marilyn makeover

Marilyn, red , Sascha's Designs

Marilyn is the name of this sassy hot pants and studded boots outfit from Sascha’s Designs. Available in a range of colors , I chose a scarlet red and added a slick of glossy red lipstick and classic winged eyeliner to glam up this look. The outfit includes a variety of mesh sizes and the studded bra also includes some specific mesh sizes, also included is a jacket and a different omega applier top option.. a really versatile outfit.

Pose for me

Initially when I was taking these photos I was thinking about how designers choose names for their items, and I was thinking the inspiration for this sexy outfit may have been Marilyn Munroe.. so I picked out a pin-up  style pose. That then got me to wondering whether the next generation has the same association with the name.. or whether there is a new Marilyn ( Manson) as the associated celebrity to that name. I wonder how long these Marilyns stay at the forefront of general recollection.. who knows how long before another Marilyn comes into the limelight.

Marilyn who?

Other items to note : my skin is Judith ( Lelutka applier ) from DeeTaleZ, my necklace a group gift at the faMESHed anniversary event ( from JB), my eyes are from Avi Glam and my hair is from Argrace ( I just tinted it darker than the usual shade ). The poses used are part of the Razorblade collection from Bauhaus Movement.

Makes me feel like dancing

Chandani, Azul

The Chandani dress from Azul is a more ” cocktail hour” party dress version of the Mika that was released at the last round of On9. The Chandani comes in a range of glamorous sparkle color choices and is available at the Azul mainstore. I chose this gorgeous purple version called Iolite, and everything about this dress made me feel like dancing.. so I went and enjoyed some live music after I took my photos.

My hair in this picture is the latest group gift for the Truth VIP group, there is a fee to join this group but each month you receive a FATPACK of an exclusive new release. Truth has been having a sale which has made visiting the store very difficult but the group gift allowed me to see the new textures/ color huds. Another new item in my photo is my skin, Erin by Belleza, for Lelutka mesh heads ( I am wearing Simone- Bento) . My shoes are the Dazzled , from Reign , that were in the April round of N21 as a gacha, my poses are Convolutions set A from Le Poppycock at the current round of Chapter 4.

Gifts for you and me

AZUL- SLF&O group gift

Azul has a fantastic outfit available as a group gift.. but not just for one group but three. Yes there is the standard Azul group ( free to join) , the special Platinum VIP group, and yet another gift for the SL Free & Offers group ( free to join) . This gorgeous teal color is the gift for the SLF&O group.  Just a quick mention this outfit is in standard mesh sizes so you may have to trim a little off your shape in the butt and saddle bag areas to ensure you can make the most of those daring slits from ankle to waist. I added the cute Empire shoes ,Mandevilla , which are available at the current round of Uber. It is a great price and as well as it being a fatpack of colors you also have the option to select from a variety of marbled tones for the detailing on the front strap.

A little sweet treat

Tompouce, magenta, Sascha's Designs

The Tompouce outfit, from Sascha’s Designs is a sweet little treat inspired by an absolutely divine looking little cake. Tompouce are  duo-toned Dutch pastry cakes made out of custard and with a pink glaze. Fittingly Sacha’s outfit comes in a range of soft hued pastels and then this gorgeous magenta with a pop of orange with the overcoat, I couldn’t resist.. much like me if I was faced with a Tompouce on a plate I am sure.

This sheath dress and overcoat are in standard sizes for mesh so you may need to experiment a little with your alpha hud or shape if you wear a mesh body. Also included are Slink high heels and some coordinating sunglasses ( which I decided to re-position on top of my head).

Other details-  My backdrop and pose are from Second Snaps. I am still wearing my Lelutka Simone head with Ava skin from PXL, Avi Glam eyes , my lipstick is from the Simone hud and my hair is one of the gachas from Tableau Vivant – I was lucky enough to win the RARE Lelutka head base fatpack huds so I used that and love the sleek look for this Jackie Kennedy style outfit.

There’s always time for a selfie

There's always time for a selfie

I am not really a selfie kind of person except for the fact that most of my blogs include some close up photos…so maybe those are my selfies. Anyway I won this Rare background from the Sayo gacha and couldn’t resist using it for a fun shoot to show off the details on these stockings and the fantastic shoes from N-Core. My stockings are part of the Reese lingerie set from Carries Lingerie, shown here in black, it is available in 6 dark colors so you do have some sexy choices. Today I stopped by Carries mainstore and join in the Anniversary party to celebrate 9 years in SL, it got me perusing my old photos and outfits.. I have been a Carries Lingerie fan since 2011 so there was a lot of memories there. If you haven’t checked out the store now is a great time to do so, with lots of special sales available as well as the group MM board. If you can afford to join the VIP group do so, because there are monthly gifts, special releases and extra discounted items!
