Clarisa

Rowena Springflower has long been one of my favourite designers.  In a world of exorbitantly priced single-colour/texture items and fatpacks for a very modest discount,  Rowena has long featured lovely mesh with included texture-selection HUDs for a reasonable price.     

You may know that I rarely wear high feet/heels, but these coordinating heels are really quite lovely.

Rowena’s Designs has a free group and always has some lovely gifties.  Stop on by, join up, take a look around, and come back often!

Andie’s Candies

I always figure that the right bit of lace…. will make you feel more exposed than if you were bare.

Stop by Carrie’s Lingerie to see what nakeder-than-naked things she has for you… and surprise that special someone tonight.

Sami revisited

Carrie’s Lingerie has released another new update on an old friend.  Sami was one of my favourite old applier pieces of lingerie, so I’m so happy to have the updated version with Omega appliers.  The lace-up back is just mmmmms.

Sami comes in six strong colours (and a fatpack is available), so you’re sure to find your look.

I usually don’t follow boudoir shots with something more covered up, but I do like wearing a corset and a pair of jeans… it’s perfect for a casual sexy look when you’re out for the pub.

I am so glad that Carrie’s Lingerie has continued to update some of the older pieces with Omega appliers.  I can think of quite a few to put on their list — Fireangel in particular, and that one burlesque-y outfit that I haven’t seen in the main store for ages!

Catch my drift

A late evening in the city and unable to sleep… so I slip on a short yukata, and feeling very daring, slip through the neon-sparkling night for a little bit of a late-night snack…

Eclectic Stars has a very nerdy/geeky chic, but this is just a stunning little yukata and obi.  I keep tugging at the bottom edge a bit… but am also a bit flushed at the excitement of it.  It does show off my legs.  🙂

  • GLITTER — Back Pose (Pose Lover event gift)

I’d shown off EarthStones‘ Flight of Fancy necklace before.  I went back and picked up the long version… and found that layering the long and the short gave a lovely looped appearance.  

Give Jadziya at Eclectic Stars a little love — stop by and see what she has for you.  Mahalo!  A hui hou!

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!

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!

One last spell to cast….

One more witch for this season?

Petite Mort brings us a wonderful little in-store hunt for my final witch of the season: each item in the hunt is part of the Gypsy Witch – hat, skirt, lace shawl, peasant top, and pentacle choker.  Three’s still a little time before All Hallow’s Eve!

The Gypsy Witch features Petite Mort‘s flour sack peasant top, lace shawl, and gypsy skirt.  Each comes in the standard five sizes, plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fitmesh!

Setting the hat aside for a moment, Gypsy Witch makes for a wonderful slightly gothy outfit.  OMG I love Petite Mort‘s fitmesh!

A little bit of a closeup on the choker.  The witch’s hat can oversize a bit without looking out-of-sorts, but a little creative editing of a hairdo can always help, too.  🙂   I don’t usually wear heavy eyeshadow or dark lippy, but it definitely works with this outfit, I think!

  • ProPose —  Group Gift September F1 pose

The worst part, to me, of the end of the Hallowe’en season?  Everyone always expects the costumes to be put away for another year.

Me, I’ll always wear my inner witch… so don’t be surprised if you see me in my pointy hat out-and-about in SL.

The Importance of Colour

It sounds silly — and obvious — but sometimes all it takes is the right colour to really make an outfit come alive for you.  Months ago I’d blogged Esyld by Spyralle – a lovely gown/dress in some very lovely earth tones.  Quite pretty, but… I’ll admit, I never really wore it much after that.  The colour was nice, but… it didn’t speak to me.  Just last week, however, Kerryth put the green version of Esyld on 50L special — and now it sings.

  • SpyralleEsyld Green gown/dress/skirt and bustier (who knows?)
  • Maxi Gossamer JewelryShell Teardrop Pendant (short) and Earrings, Sea Green
  • [L.Warwick] – Savannah Ankle Strapped Heels – Noir Leather
  • ProPoseGroup Gift September 2016

I’m still not quite sure whether to think of Esyld as a gown or as a dress.  Maybe it’s really a skirt with an interesting bustier.  The laced back detail is really rather amazing, and it has this lovely little gauzy overskirt in the rear.  It’s all mesh, so there’s no flutter, but it adds a lovely touch.

EssyldGreen_c008

I had been a bit at odds for jewelry to complement Esyld.  My first thought was something nice and angular, lots of curly filigree certainly wasn’t the right touch.    I happened to stumble on this lovely abalone necklace and earrings from Maxi Gossamer Jewelry.  While it’s not angular, somehow it works.

It’s a pleasure when you look at an outfit and just think yes.   Sometimes you have to find the right colour, sometimes it’s the hairstyle, or the jewelry, or the shoes.  And then — then you hit that magic combination, and all those components come together and it just feels right.

That’s when these pictures are an absolute joy to take.

Now — I don’t know how long Kerryth will have Esyld green on special, so it’s worth swinging by.  At this price, it’s too good to pass up!
