Stars and sand

The skies darken as night falls on the beach, but the stars stay bright wherever you are in this happy little romper from Petite Mort!  Sabina was a 2016 group gift that I wanted to share with you, and I’m finally getting around to it!

Sabina  is still available right now at the old location, but might not be if you wait.  The store is in the process of moving, and that will happen SOON!   The new landmark is HERE: Petite Mort (new location).  I wouldn’t count on the gifts still being out once the move is completed!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Casual

It’s still a little cool and the snow is still covering our land, so I thought a little mix and match for a sweater and jeans would keep me warm, at least if I don’t venture out too far!

The sweater and leather pants are from different designers, but because they’re both Lara fitmesh, they play together brilliantly.  Some ankle boots and one of my fav necklaces and I’m all set!

And I must say, both creators are great texture designers.  I wish I was as good as this!

Boho Tank Dress

This cute little tank dress was from the Boho Fair last year.

The detailing on the belt and the texturing is excellent!  The dress is in standard rigged mesh, plus fitmesh for classic avatars, and body specific fitmesh for Belleza Isis, Slink Hourglass and Physique, and Maitreya Lara.

Hot as ice, cold as flame

When ice and flame get together, something is going to get steamy.  Dressed by Lexi is sending up risque sparks with Risque, group gift for the month of January!  Quick, there are only a few days left!

I decided to augment this with a lovely necklace from an older outfit by Lexi.  Tantalise features a colour-change HUD to match the dress, a necklace and earrings as well as arm cuffs.  The low pendent back of the necklace is perfect for Risque’s low back.

Risque is offered in Omega appliers and standard layers for that sexy painted-on look.  It features beautiful flexi skirting, giving the gown that beautiful swish that is absolutely glamorous at the ball.

  • GLITTER — Back Pose (Pose Lover event gift)

Blue Flame is offered as a group gift, but there are four other colours plus jewelry and shoes for sale at reduced prices for the month!  Stop by Dressed by Lexi today!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Diva Iris

Diva is celebrating their 6th anniversary is SL with this lovely gown and hair free gift for group members!  Congratulations Marisa!

The gown is in standard rigged mesh, and the texturing is very very nice.  Being full mesh it’s not wonderful for dancing or large movements, but it looks lovely walking.  The addition of a flexi overskirt adds a little swish.

The hair is umm what can I say?  Super?  Great?  Fantastic?  This is just one look.  There are multiple parts to this, and I will do a post on it so I can show you all the looks available with just one hair when the creator designs cleverly as Diva has!  Oh and did I mention it has a fatpack texture change for thirteen colors and options?  Wow, it surely deserves a post of its own!

Soft and warm

I don’t know about you, but Advent leaves me with a mess of an inventory that I slowly work my way through!  Baby Monkey had a delightful suite of gifts for Advent 2016, including the lovely Raffaela sweater dress and boots. 

You’ve seen me with .wound‘s ribbon choker before — it’s one of my favourite pieces.  It comes in three different HUD-driven palettes — vibrant, dark (shown) and a neutrals.  Each one comes with unscripted and RLV versions.  Unfortunately, while the RLV version works, it’s an older RLV script and is not updateable.   Nevertheless, this is the best ribbon I’ve found!

  • K&SDance 5 pose

The high suede boots have a lovely little shroud at the heel.  Maybe not practical in the snowy slush… but oooo so cute!

Take a look on flickr for a few more images, including my favourites.  If you’re not a member of Baby Monkey you should definitely free up a group slot.  Over the past few years I have loved watching Pixie’s creations keep getting better and better!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

A splash of warmth

Yes, I can celebrate the ice and snow one day and the warmth and the surf the next — or a couple days later, anyway!  Spyralle‘s lovely mu’umu’u is perfect for enjoying the late afternoon Sun.  And it’s just perfect to welcome Oahu back to SL.  I don’t know how long it’s been back, but this happy little sim holds a place dear to my heart, and I was sad when it closed up about a year ago!

A plumeria for the hair and a blossom on a nice gold chain are courtesy of Island Style Designs.

Spyralle‘s lovely styles and wonderful gifts will thrill you throughout the year.  Stop by, become a member, and enjoy Kerryth’s fine work.  If you’re not familiar with how Kerryth runs the group, Spyralle‘s VIP group alternates between free and a fee.  When there’s a gift offered, there’s a charge, and when there’s no active group gift, it’s free.  You can wait until it’s free, but I have to tell you: there is a HOST of lovely gifts — including this mu’umu’u — available to members right now.  It’s so worth joining and holding on to that membership.  I’m not sure how long the gifts will be there, so I hope you take advantage of it right away!

Happy Monday, my friends.  Hold Aloha in your hearts, it will warm you any day of the week, every week of the year!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Alisha shorts

I tend to keep things sorted into full outfits in my inventory.  I’m not too great at mix and match as I can much better remember an outfit rather than a single piece of clothing.  I dutifully file separates away if they’re good, and sometimes I’ll go though them when I’m looking for something different to wear.  That was the case with these mesh shorts.

The package contains standard sizes in rigged mesh, plus fitmesh for Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Physique, Lara, Curvy, and TMP.  It also have a great little HUD which allows you to change the fabric texture, the belt and buckle colors, and the belt loops.

The detailing is quite nice.  While this is Lara fitmesh, there are some little breakthrough issues along the lower hem.  I’ve done minor retouches to these pics, but I suspect you could easily tweak your shape to get things just right.

Racing!

I was exploring the other day and clicked on a free gift offer and was amazed to receive a working go kart!

Cars and planes go a little fast for me in SL 🙂  Sailing is more my speed.  But they sure make wonderful photo props!

Having said that, I did drive around the track after I’d finished the photo shoot 🙂  Just like my Porsche, the go kart is radically fast and has massive oversteer hehe, but it’s sure a bit of fun!
