Fashion FUN

Rebel with a cause - spring is on its way, I feel sassy, I want some pizzaz.  One of the Designer Showcase creators, Bonita Popinjay has a shop full of funky jewelry, some of it is classic pearl and beads, but her use of colours and way of presenting them is fun.  Her showcase item this cycle is a fun picture frame that hangs from a chain, from your lower lip ($50L).  My first impression readers was .".no way jose"... Bonita said try it... so I did... Guess what it made me feel really peppy, I liked it, made me feel  younger.

Cute and Sassy

It has been awhile since I've felt like I'm cute and sassy.  Through the Designer Showcase I was introduced to the creative talent of one Rux Anatra (Ruxy Design).  Since I was already going to blog on the Body by Coco shape that I just acquired, I thought I'd see what Rux had to offer in the line of clothes.  She has the cutest junior miss type outfit in the Showcase now, great value reg. price is $345L and she is offering it for $99L incl. shoes and leg warmers(Mary dress & Shoes) perfect transition outfit from winter to spring.  the shoes are beige you'll get lots of wear from the shoes alone.

Nope that is not what I'm wearing .. I'm wearing her outfit Alexa.  Alexa comes in 4 different colours, I'm wearing the brown with beige trims.  I picked a shoe by Delinda Abbot, also a designer who participates in the Designer Showcase (Lindys Modern & Retro Shoes)  The shoe is the Terri, a lovely retro shoe that I find goes with a lot of different outfits from retro to modern.  The colour hud it has allows for a variety of possibilities.


Hair and Eyes are by  Amacci , another designer from the Designer Showcase.. Hair is Marlin, chestnut tipped blonde   Eyes are Insight -  brown/green

Skin.. surprise surpriset is also by Rux Anatra (Ruxy Design).  I have not had a chance to talk with her about her skins yet, she has two lines, Helena and Ivonne. the one in this shoot is  Helene light M1. We all apply and use our makeups differently, there are demos there for you to try.  Always try before you buy.
Note** the Shape, Tess2 by Shape by CoCo is the mod one, when you purchase, there is 1 that is no mod, and one that is

Devil or Angel, I see danger in her eyes....

Lured out to shop Serenity (Style by Kira) visits the Vinyl Cafe and a shop called Fifi & Fleur, this is one of the outfits purchased today, the designer that has caught this writer's eye is Evangaline.Eames.


The skin Serenity 01H opt 2 reminds me of peaches and cream, her lips pouting and sexy look luscious.
The dark emerald green eyes against her fair skin tantalizing.  Her hair frames her face inviting you to tuck a wandering strand back behind her ear.=^_^=  You have the makings here of a little bombshell... 

Evangaline had outfits in the Vinyl Cafe as well as the Fifi & Fleur, I picked up another two outifts in the Vinyl Cafe.

Meanwhile here is the limo for Flawless and Kira's shop, after you've done there, wander over to the Designer Showcase where you'll find other delights to peruse.  (Amacci has a lovely hairstyle there at a special price, one of my favourites, Doris)

The world of Suzie Wong

For those of you who don't remember or don't know of Suzie Wong, "The World of Suzie Wong is a 1960 British-American romantic drama film directed by Richard Quine. The screenplay by John Patrick was adapted from the stage play by Paul Osborn, which was based on the novel of the same title by Richard Mason. The film starred William Holden and Nancy Kwan, who replacedFrance Nguyen, the original choice for the film[ "
As a young girl many moons ago, this story  haunted me, I watched the movie, my tender heart reached out to the
plight of the lovers.  Social acceptability's were not what they are today.
Second Life is a lot of things, one of its biggest and most positive pluses is the artistic creativity that it sows and 
harvests.
Style by Kira, is the brain child of Kira Rinkitink (Paderborn), I have been a customer of hers for many 
years, I've liked and appreciated her talents.  HOWEVER, when I was at the Festival of Sins looking at 
her display there, I was bowled over by her Asian Escort. Not only does one get the avatar, the skin,
outfit, hair, eyes, an amazing light is part of the package.
I wanted the hunk on the cover of the box too, but I was told in no uncertain terms he was not part
of the package.  sigh. Kira even provides a note card with the Windlight Presets to give the best look.
Readers, this information is gold, it works with many looks.. 


Asian Escort is what rang my chimes .. but it was difficult to not indulge a few more of my fantasies. 
She has a wonderful selection of "ladies" who tempt, tease and lure the passion from the unsuspecting
male.  Whether it is through innocence (the Shino Skin, she provides the style card with the skin 
shape is also available) or her other seductive personalities, she knows how to kindle the fires. 
Check out her booth at the Festival of Sin or visit her main shop you owe it to yourself to allow the
sex kitten in you out to play.

Amacci woman

Remember that expression "never judge a book by its cover".  Readers, Amacci is a name we know, we've come to expect quality and if we are customers, we've enjoyed good selection and excellent customer service.
I was very interested in the Festival of Sin and that Amacci was going to be there.  I braved the lag and attended the fair.  My reaction WOW!  Several of my favourite designers are there.
Amacci has a wonderful shop, I decided to use what is featured there, along with a few other items to show you the versatility of Amacci.
I had a lot of fun finding the "sex kitten" outfit, I realized in the aging process I've gotten a tad stuffy in my personal choices. So I did some shopping =^_^=.. I went for red latex... hey, its my fantasy, the outfit is super "boss"  $120 from Sakide  (bought at the Festival of Sin)  it is actually called Rubbing Latex lingerie,
sounds naughty yes (^_^)
The ball gown, was easy I had it in my inventory. L.D. Jodie, golden (Lillou Merlin Design)

skin - Amacci - Liane (Puder) -04 Candy
shape -Amacci - Lexie -tall - brow 3
make up - Amacci - lip tattoo 10
eyes - Amacci - brown green with sparkle
face light - Amacci soft face light  NB I use the light when doing photography

Mayfly group gift - Glacial Dusk Eyes

Eyes that tempt, eyes that compel, eyes that dare you to try to look away.
The Mayfly eyes can speak volumes simply by looking out at you.  The Glacial Dusk eyes are vibrant and alive.  Using the same shape I had on for the last post, (al Vulo, Emy) I changed the skin,(CK Azil ivy skin) slipped on the Mayfly Glacial Dusk and became an irrepressible imp.
I dug into my makeup bag, applied Face Paint, Barbie v2,    pulled out Amacci Doris (blueberry)(hair)  and knew I needed a new dress...=^_^=
Off to the Dressing Room to pick up the Ricielli mesh sequined mini I'd seen earlier, it comes complete with the Ricielli Eustaquia gold citrine dangle earrings. et voila, I felt like a new me.
Shoes are Enkythings, Khan Sangria

Al Vulo (shapes/skins)

In my travels I meet some lovely people, I'm very interested in their avatars.  Last night I came across a gal who was well put together. I liked what I saw so asked for the name of her skin. Answer Al Vulo, this was new to me,   It is a big store, with displays and product all along the sides  right down to the back.  There is plenty to  choose from.  Prices are the same all through the shop, I saw no specials, the only signs are the ones telling you that all the shapes are no mod (they cannot be modified) and that custom requests are not done.  *join the group there is a free skin outside the main bldg.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ReMix%20Yo%20LIfe/152/157/1350


Shopping for a new shape or skin can be daunting to the new player, always try the demos that are offered.
At Al Vulo demos are not free, you pay $1 linden for them.  Always try the demo skins and shape before buying. Once you buy, the product is yours.


If you are new to SL, remember that a lot of factors go into the look you want.  The face you are looking at in the advertisement is not the face you'll have looking back at you, if you don't have the same bone structure (shape) as the model in the picture. (or close to it)  That is why trying the product on prior to purchase is so important.   This designer, provides you with the ability to purchase the shape of the model in the picture.  Cost of the shapes $350.. and remember no modifications.  Some designers will give you two shapes one that cannot be altered, and one that can, in my purchase I got the al vulo brows for the shape I bought, a small cutie shape (5'8" ) and the regular shape (6'1").

I did notice that some of the shapes had three sizes, small, medium and tall.  Same $ so check out what it is you are purchasing before buying.
I could have dug up some blonde hair for this shot, but I wanted you to see the results of the purchase.  the single skin cost $800.  *NB - lighting is also a big factor on the end results.  There was no style card, it is possible the model for al Vulo is wearing a different skin. (few more pictures on Flickr)

Designer Showcase

A friend suggested I drop over to the Designer Showcase, check it out.  I was tired, it was end of day, but I went.  Guess what?  I'd been there before, that is where I first discovered a couple of the designers that have made their way into my "artistic" heart.  So I picked up another shape, Tess by Coco, a skin, Nadine by NVious (eyes included) and an outfit Zulu Print by Simone Udimo.  The hair is Amacci's Emilia it is a great style, you can wear it mid length or extra long.


My understanding is that the designers each put in an item at a special price that is showcased for a determined amount of time at this special price.  I got good value for my linden/dollar.  I've put together a very sassy outfit had I purchased these items at their regular prices, my output would have been much more.
The boots "S" Carpe Diem - tuxedo wild leather in white, came from my inventory. everything else, the jewelry accessories with the outfit, etc. are all at the Designer Showcase now.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Flawless/109/203/27


& FYI I also bought shoes (Lindy Sally Valentine) with colour change hud  $79
my Java Fashion outfit Zulu Print was a whole $49, remember I got the bracelet and earrings too.
My shape which I will get a lot of use of cost me $70  I provided the limo, get on down and check this place out.  You like poses, there is a package of poses there too!!

Lemania Indigo's Brazilia

I saw the dress, I wanted the dress, I bought the dress.. we've all been there, we love the dress, we get it home come to wear it and realize that something is missing.  In this instance it was hair.  Lemania packed shoes with this dress, so I had the shoes, AND wonderful black silk stockings with the chic line down the back of the leg.
Shape -Twily's Alora, used Twily's eyebrows.      
Skin - Nvious, Keisha Fantasy M1 (it was the lip colour that sold me on this skin)
Eyes - Poetic - Moon - autumn )m) bright                              Face light - Amacci -strong light
the dress itself is a wonderful pattern of darks and orange vibrant colours in warm shades of yellows/golds and orange.  Brazilia is above the knee in length giving the legs a nice long sexy look.

My search for hair took me to a lot of places.  For me I like flexi hair, and if I need to I will just keep on looking.  In my search I did find a location with lots of freebies, thought you night like to check it out, it is a Hair mall, so a  lot of good designers in one location.  The hair I found and love, comes in two styles the one I am wearing and a longer version with an attachment, is from Tribal Soul Designs.  following is the SLurl to the HAIR ONLY place.

change the shoes, change the woman

How many shoes can one gal have, from what I've learned in my lifetime so far... we can never have enough shoes...  This morning I discovered another shoe shop.. Mintxu Denimore designer of the L3S label, this is the  SLurl..         http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Opium%20LAD/70/170/22.  (Opium LAD)  Prices are very reasonable... when I get back home I'll be trying them out, see how they come out of the box =^_^= feel and look on the foot.
This is my first time in this shop, so I have more looking around to do.  Actually won an outfit on a lucky chair, haven't checked it out yet either.  Note this is a shop with a lot of  lucky chairs.
Having a more leisurely look around the shop, I can see that my post today will likely show two looks, you will see that my approach started out rather conservatively...

Shape - Stiletto Moody - Beauty shape V09              Skin - Style by Kira - Abigail Fantasy 01A
Eyes - Amacci - Grey/brown            Hair - Amacci- lily, mocha,           Face light - Amacci - warm 
Shoes - by Fay Rhodes - Nora         Top - GB highneck sweater c/w necklace (Takuya Jinn)
Jeans - Mia Snow's Tuesday jeans.             Earrings Aurora Borealis -Cartier Deco, silver

**note that the trip to Opium changed me from haute couture, to la sex kitten.
The only change to the outfit on the right is the footwear... new boots, the top came with the boots.
Package is called Hojas Suaves, by Mintxu Denimore (L3S Opium)  the top of course, and the  hair.     Hair in second outfit is Amacci - Michelle - butterscotch.  Oh and I changed the face light to Amacci strong to better capture the highlights in the face/hair for the photos.
but of course, I purchased another pair of shoes... you'll get to see them another time =^_^=

Rediscovering Mia Snow

No she wasn't lost, but I had drifted away into other parts of SL and till today when I rediscovered her shop, her creative genius was tucked away in a back corner.  Where to start with her "in your face" make ups and skins.  Guess it will depend on your mood when you venture into her web.  I think you will either like her flamboyant style, or you won't.  I had a ball, once I started to reinvent myself, there was no turning back.

18th Century New World America

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New%20World%20Savannah/29/38/22
A new purchase for me from Meiling had me on the hunt for a location to best show it off.  I landed in Savannah, an 18th Century New World America build.  It wasn't the  Savannah I had in mind, but the landscape held my interest.  I could feel the wide open spaces of another time, the fish cooking over the fire, likely caught that very day... an animal skin stretched out to dry in the open air.  I can imagine the sound of the fire crackling and the smell of the burning wood, giving off that "comfort" feeling of a meal being prepared.

Meiling's gingham skirt with the simplified version of the blouse lends itself well to the authentic time period
of early America.  Over the bridge there is a tiny settlement with an Inn, where "neighbours" could come together for a time of "rest" after a busy day. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New%20World%20Savannah/29/38/22

Modern Geisha


In a world where life is forever changing, the outer layers may look different but to the trained geisha, education, social change, evolution of art, and the art of "presence" is still a skill to be honed. In a geisha's world, quality of life, products and presentation was the standard.

once upon a dream

Every young girl has day dreams and fantasies at some time or other of being a beautiful princess.  Later we even shop to try to fulfill those dreams.  I've been looking for years for an outfit that will make me feel like I've achieved that special moment, when I see my reflection and sigh with delight.  Readers, the moment has come.
A friend out of the blue said she had a dress that she thought I'd like.  I was half dressed, looking through my inventory for that special outfit for Valentine's day.  The dress arrived, I put it on, and the magic began.  I stopped looking for hair, shoes I needed, so that was dealt with pronto.  Then I did nothing but watch  myself on the screen.  The designer of this dress has placed her designs on the textures in such a way that the dress wraps itself around the body in a very seductive way.  The billowing layers of the skirt move with such seduction, that nothing else is needed.
Who is this designer, non other than Morea Decosta, the dress is Evangeline - lilac




Shape is Amacci - Jennifer tall - eyebrows are from the Jennifer pkg.
Skin is NVious - Courage M1
Eyes - Mayfly - deep sky eyes - Grey Shadow
Make up - Face Paint - one shot aburn -chocolate
Shoes -Viki - Fay Rhodes
Poses  used ABS Sensualite - Stu Reyes
my AO is AKEYO

After the Prom



lovely prom dress found @ Lemania's black heart hunt, this week-end. (be my valentine) you see it here in its entirety, shoes and necklace are part of the outfit. The comb in my hair is Zuri Rayna.  Earrings the free group gift (mens) from Chop Suey.   Shoot on location at Club Enchanted Diner. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Enchanted%20Seaport/94/141/26  The music at the diner is very authentic, I didn't want to leave after the shoot was over.

Back when we wore these wonderful dresses that billowed out around us showing our crinolines and fancy pumps (we felt so grown up, after all most of our days were spent in sneakers & jeans or school uniforms depending on where you went to school)  These rock and roll diners were where we hung out dancing the nights away.  After the prom, we always headed to our favourite hang out to "cut loose" catch up on our evening of "passing one more hurdle".  We couldn't grow up fast enough.. we were so eager to taste all of what life had to offer.

To achieve the minimal makeup of the time, I used Face Paint Megan fair, over Face Paint shape Lisa.  I did modify Lisa for the occasion (making sure to have saved the original)  Hair is Amacci Boa, summer blond..
Eyes- Mayfly - Deep sky eyes (Grey Shadow w2).  The poses are an assortment that I collected at the Pose -animation expo this week-end, along with a portable model pose hud Kenya.  My regular hud is an AKEYO

A visit to Neverland

With the toe tapping sounds of Michael Jackson's  music wafting through the studio, I came up with the idea to visit Neverland, especially since at A&A on my last visit I splurged on their hairstyle Kingstyle.  It took me a good 20 minutes to decide on the colour I'd get.  Well worth it.

This hairstyle will be a wonderful look for lazy summer days, in fact I can see getting a lot of wear from it, that is why I didn't go with the darkest colour, but instead went with their #2, which is a dark brown.  I also felt that it would allow for a more feminine MJ look.

Shape, skin, makeup, nails, rings (gold) all from Face Paint.

The earrings are from Ricielli, Eustaquia, gold


leather pants, short crop black jacket & frill blouse are from Izzies - Eyes -Izzies Teak mesh
shoes - Ricielli TDR sophia pump


Ok..ok. I couldn't resist having my picture taken in front of the poster with MJ wearing the same hairdo!
If you've never been to visit Neverland, you might want to, there is a lot to do there.  There is even a skating rink, and of course, lots of rides.

Yesterday


Yesterday.....when life was simpler,perhaps kinder, certainly less hectic......  Ingenue fashions bring back the feminine styles of yesterday.


A woman's favourite fashion accessory - her hat, I was delighted with the choices at Hatpins
the finishing touch was the jewelry.  Your outfit wasn't complete without it.
