Carmen

Maai is a store I really like, but they have been really quiet for some time now.  They moved to a big new store and a lot of vendors with coming soon went up, and then it all went quiet.  I’m happy to say that something finally seems to be happening over there, and as evidence, here is the latest group gift from Maai!

The lingerie is for Maitreya Lara only, and the bra, panties, and garter are all separate.  The stockings are also from Maai as a free gift (find them on the main counter), and again are only available for Lara.  The stockings also come in white and nude colors.  The bows on the lingerie are very cute 🙂

Since Aeon and I started this blog, I’ve thought that fashion photography should be all about the clothes, and a lot of my photos are done in the studio to reflect this.  Aeon is a nice balance for me because she is far more concerned with getting out and finding a nice setting for her outfits.  But you know, for a change, I wanted something other than the white backdrop to shoot against, so I got this little vanity table.  It has some excellent little poses and animations in it, and the creator has tried to think of everything, including multiple copies of the objects in different colors.  Also, everything is mod!  What a great little addition to our set of props!

Lucia

Prism Design has a very nice gift for the Renaissance Hunt that’s going on right now.  The gift includes both a gown, and a full length wrap-around cloak for the guys (although I suspect we might be able to wear it too)!

The gown is in standard mesh sizes and the texturing is really nice (although as I tend to comment on most materials enabled clothing, the shine is a little overdone.  I wonder if designers actually look at their materials enabled stuff in a photo lighting setup?)

For a gown like this, my first choice in hairstyle is this wonderful do from A&A.  I don’t wear A&A as much as I used to before the jellydoll project, but this hairstyle is a must with this gown!

  • Gown: Lucia Renaissance Gown by Jessixa Reds for Prism Design
  • Body: Lara by Maitreya
  • Hands: Slink Dynamic
  • Hair: Bianca Hair Strawberry Cream by Alli & Ali
  • Jewelry: Silver Necklace and Earrings with Amber by Kalina’s Design (unavailable)

Paisley Daisy offers Sweet St. Chocolate as group gift for September, a gorgeous earthy dress for the autumn.

Joeylin has such a wonderful touch with the textures.  The gold filigree about the shoulders and the lace at the midriff and hem are just the perfect fine detail.

Feuilles necklace and earrings from EarthStones is a perfect golden complement to this lovely dress.

Paisley Daisy has long had some amazing designs, I’m so glad that they’ve been expanding into fitmesh.  I’m feeling almost ready for the leaves to fall from the trees!
Almost.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Disclaimer: I’m not into pony play, but in the interests of comprehensive fashion reportage…

This “outfit” if I can call it that, has been lurking in my inventory waiting for me to get up the courage to post it lol.  It come in two versions, the “nice” version shown here, and a “naughty” version without the mid bra panels.  Sizes are fitmesh for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Hourglass, Physique, eBody, and TMP.  There are no classic sizes.

I must admit, while I’m not a fan of the style, the detail and rigging are superb, which is what I’m come to expect from this designer.  Great job, and certainly worth a look for those of you into this style!

Tara on the beach

Why do stores give out group gifts?  I figure two good reasons — to thank their customers, and to encourage new customers into their stores.  I’ve gladly just discovered {FAFA} ethnic clothing, and you can be sure I’ll be back!

Alaska Metro <3‘s Daytime is a lovely general-purpose makeup set, eyeshadow and lippy for any casual occasion. 

Off we go, skipping down the sand — chasing every moment of Summer that’s left.

Happy Days

So in case you don’t know, Precious Designs and Rowena’s share a store, and while I was there the other day, I grabbed the gifts for the MGSN group too 🙂

This is a great little dress, and it comes in standard sizes plus fitmesh for Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, and TMP.  It also comes with a five color HUD, but guess which color I like? 🙂   At the store, right next to the dress, are a matching set of heels for Lara, Slink, and Belleza high feet.  The heels come with  a HUD to let you match them to the dress colors.  A wonderful gift!

My hairstyle is by Tableau Vivant, and while I usually sport fairly long hair, I love short styles too.  I must have worn A&A’s Serafine for 18 months to the exclusion of everything else before the jellydoll update to the viewer made most prim hairs far too expensive to wear.  This hairstyle was a gift for SL’s 14th birthday, and it comes with a full fat pack of color HUDs!

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post on an outfit from Rowena’s Designs!  I haven’t been there for a little while until something caught my attention on the SLF&O group chat the other day.  I’m glad I went because I picked up this gorgeous little dress that comes with a six color HUD too!

The mesh is really well done, and it comes in standard mesh sizes, plus fitmesh for classic, Belleza, Hourglass, Physique, Maitreya, and TMP.

I thought about it a little more… and it’s true, there are many who fill my life with joy and love and laughter.  My Blue, my sister, my friends, the dear heart who helps me edit some images every now and again….   I have a hard time imagining where I would be without each and every one of them

But then, too, sometimes… you need your priorities right.  If you don’t love yourself, how would you expect anyone else to?  Stretch your wings and fly.

Luane’s World poses are on sale right now, 50% off many lovely things!

Be your dream.  Have a wonderful Friday, and a beautiful weekend, everyone!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!
