Spotted shopping

Leopard, Sascha's Designs

Showcasing a fun spotty outfit from Sascha’s Designs, Leopard consists of a mesh overcoat, mesh boots, and omega appliers for the pants and top. The outfit includes black or spotted versions for the pants so you can go as spot crazy as you like.

Also worn is this great updo Madeline from EMO-tions at the current round of Hairology. I recently picked up the Scarlet mesh head from LAQ and have enjoyed trying on different appliers, Session skins have recently released one called Josie BUT the one shown here is an older one called Fiona. Eyes are from Avi- Glam, I believe I selected the Sand color in the Charm range.

The pose is an old one from Frozen Poses and includes the shopping bags. The background used is a past event gacha item from Rama.

Now mustn’t stop any longer .. off to get my shopping finished.

PS I am taking a break from blogging, I have been writing this blog for over 5 years, and I feel it’s time to take a break and re-evaluate. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I thank you all for visiting my blog, reading my words, supporting the stores I have blogged for and sharing my passion for SL fashion. To all the stores who have provided opportunities for me to showcase their items I would like to say a very heartfelt thank you- I wish you continued success with your stores, and even if I do not return to blogging in 2018 you can be sure I will be returning to SL as one of your customers!

Delicious deceit

Delicious deceit

At a recent event when the focus was on Sleeping Beauty, Silvan Moon Designs released a gown suitably regal and impressive as befitting an Evil Queen. The Evil Queen Grimhilde  gown set shown here in Purple is available in a range of colors at The White Armory mainstore. Remember that SMD is a collaborative label between owners of TWA and BME. The plate of poisoned apples is an old hunt gift from *Sweet Lies Original *.

Another older item is this complex hairstyle  from .:EMO-tions:. * ANTOINETTE*. It comes with an attachment but I left that off and added some beautiful pieces from Zuri Jewelry instead. As this hairstyle is an older one I believe it is only found on the marketplace.

I’ll be back

No Hands, Something New

I have been meaning to create this post as soon as I saw this prop from Something New- it’s a hunt prize and although designed for males I think it works okay for females too. It isn’t too hard to guess the inspiration for the styling of these pictures, I’m sure it didn’t take you longer than it took to read the title.

Which is a good thing because you will need to be quick to grab up some of these items. Head to Something New for the hunt:

The fantastic metallic skin is Pris from YS&YS at We Love Roleplay, which closes the 30th November. The hair is Cat ( RARE includes goggles and chains add ons) from EMO-tions at Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Outfit is a fantastic romper from Erratic, whilst the boots are Survivor from N-Core.

These eyes are stand-outs from Avi Glam, the Hope eyes shown here in Ruby and Charcoal ( yes you can colour the eyes individually) are currently available at Shiny Shabby. You can buy the eyes in single colours or a fatpack – remember they include a mesh set of eyes with hud, Catwa applier and Omega applier giving you lots of options. This round of Shiny Shabby is open until the 15th December so you have a little longer to grab these there before they head to the mainstore.

Rubies forever

Falling Snow hairpins ( Elite) and jewelry set Ruby/bronze by Zuri Jewelry

Zuri Jewelry released the Falling Snow set ( comprising of necklace, earrings and bracelet) around this time last year. The  snow flake shape is beautiful and delicate so perfect to wear anytime of the year. In these pictures I am showing the Ruby/ Bronze combination but there are lots more to select from . Zuri is about to release the co-ordinating hairpins as an elite version, meaning you can change the colour of both the gems and the metals with a large assortment to select from. These hairpins are unrigged, meaning you can adjust them to sit on different hairstyles but they still follow your movements ( they don’t float weirdly when you move) and are copy so you can make duplicates and adjust positions.

Avi Glam has released another gorgeous fatpack of eyes at the current round of Shiny Shabby, the Natural eyes come with the usual options of Catwa, Lelutka, Omega appliers and a pair of mesh eyes with hud. The colours included range from a soft blue, through green into some gorgeous browns.

Kaya

Kaya gown, nude, Azul

Please excuse my lax posting of late, I hit a rather rough patch emotionally and needed to take some time to re-balance. I still have issues with my health and on-going fatigue then add some emotional stress and grief ..well I was feeling anything but Serene. I hope to be back more in SL but it may be a few days before I get back on my blogging train. Meanwhile I wanted to share some gorgeousness from several of my favourite SL designers.

Kaya is the name of this recently released mesh gown from Azul, available in 15 colors , one marketplace limited- shown here is Nude. The gown is  Fitted Mesh (Belleza,Maitreya,Slink,Standard Sizes)  with separate Rigged Mesh Sleeves (Standard Sizes) but  not worn in these photos , a Flexi Train  and a Non Rigged Mesh Circlet ( also not shown in this post).

Although this gown includes a lovely circlet I had selected to use this fantastic style from EMO-tions which you can find at the current round of We Love Roleplay. The Meridia hairstyle comes in the usual range of haircolors and includes optional crown, beads and add-on plaits.

Sarah ( LL applier) , Avi Glam @ Cosmo + EMO-tions

Another event special is the beautiful Sarah skin ( Lelutka applier) from Avi Glam which you will find at the current round of Cosmopolitan. There are six tones available, shown here is the lightest. I really appreciate skins like this that look gorgeous bare while still allowing you to change up your look with adding make up appliers ( with no conflict between make up already on the skin). Don’t forget that the body appliers that match these skin tones are available at Amara Beauty, so head to Cosmopolitan and try those demos until you find the tone that you can’t resist.

Other details in these photos : Eyes are Avi Glam Silky Eyes in Helio which were released at August Shiny Shabby. Jewelry is the Elite version of Vintage Pearls ( V3) from Zuri Jewelry. Location for photo is StoryBrooke:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Baja%20Norte/107/149/2002
