It is a week off, but I wanted to let you know that Wear Gray is coming on April 6th. Wear Gray is an annual event, and has such a great reason for being, as explained on the website, so do all you can to support this great event, and mark your calendars. The event is advertised on my sidebar, so if you lose the link you can get it there.

As you know I love the mesh hybrids out and about lately, especially the micro minis.

The ones I am wearing today are from Elymode, and have such a great mix of styles and colour options to mix and match. They are hybrid mesh, because the flap between the legs at front and back is half mesh and half regular prim, so the front moves with your legs beautifully and the back is still modifiable in edit for a better fit against your bottom. The fact that with all this new technology we get such sexy items is a bonus.

The hair I am wearing is the other new release from Elikatira, I like the high top of this half updo style, it is very pretty with a nice twist wrap at the back. A great princess type style that works so well casual or formal, and everything in between.

The boots I have on are from Maitreya’s latest release, these slouchy style, over the knee wedge heeled boots are just lovely, the soft suede leather is beautiful and the slight slit up the back is just marvelous for realism. The skin I am wearing is Leah from Glam Affair. This skin comes with three hair colour options, blonde, dark and red. The red is fantastic and as the skin has freckles I can see it being incredibly popular. Also I do believe it was named after the lovely Leah McCullough, she did a lovely job of modeling the skin..you can see that and other great pics she does HERE. Be daring and try all the colours of brows and the hair bases are awesome. There are also additional freckles available as well as lots of great lipsticks.

IMPORTANT:

Another interesting factoid that LL has neglected to make public, or at least it is not something I was aware was their own input into our lives. I like many thought that it was in fact a griefing thing.

So here it goes…if you have seen floating rubber duckies floating around lately, or strange yellow and black pyramids, YOU ARE NOT BEING GRIEFED. This is actually LL’s SECRET way of letting us know that MESH has not rezzed in that area. Nice of them to let us know, seeing as people have been freaking out all over the place for the past two weeks because of it.

Another tidbit, not so dramatic, but certainly attention grabbing, is that the 3rd Crazy Hair Hunt starts on the 31st of March. This is hugely exciting news as many of the participants are not usually hair creators. This is an event many look forward to every year, and it is run by Treebee Withnail. The hunt goes all over SL and has many incredible stores involved. The last time Whimsy did it and she made hair with rats and pencils and eyes and it was the creepiest thing EVER. This year she is much calmer. The theme is Flora and Fauna, and the hair I have seen her unpack so far has been INCREDIBLE. This is not an event to watch others do and talk about, this is one that is a must do. So grab your friends and do the rounds, there are over 50 stores involved and the hair concepts are amazing.

chh3 Poster!

You can join the in world group on the 31st to get info and great clues etc. Every store will lead to the next, and I am pretty sure there will be bound to be lots of blogs covering it.

The items I am featuring today are a mix of old and New, the newness comes in the form of the gorgeous Caramel hair by Elikatira, beautiful curls and long locks, framing the face beautifully. There are actually two new styles, this is just one of them, so go and demo and shop lots. The other Newness is from Toki Doki, first off MODIFY SHOES! These are awesome as they are Mesh and wedge and runners so they are so fun and fashionable. The fact that they are mod is a bonus, because adding a little in the size area is great, also because I am wearing the prim socks with built in feet that you can make not there – from Maitreya – being able to size them a bit made them fit perfectly.

The other great Mesh items from Toki Doki are the great travelers bags, big and oversized with lots of pockets makes them all win, and then you have these beautiful loose cami style tops. Beautiful prints and plains in a variety of colours. They aren’t Standard Sizing they come in only three size options, BUT I did fit the medium just the same as I do in SS, so they may be very close if not the same, or they just didn’t do the xs and xxs 0nes.

The other skin I was telling you about from YS & YS is the Roxanne, and yes I sang it all the way through my taking pics, or at least burst into that one line I know at random times. The skin is delightful, and the make ups as usual are gorgeous, I really love the liner underneath in the ice colours, they always win me with that. The lips are fuller in this skin, and it does have all the amazing options YS & YS usually include, also the teeth option, but you can see that when you try the demo demo demooos.

So the other day I was talking to a creator of Full Perms Mesh building kit items. They are wonderful tools for those that build houses and such, and wonderfully priced. But as we were talking, there came up the mention of phantom objects and the inability to link them to regular prims when building. This is why most builds you buy are sold with rezzers or bundled. But it seems Second Life has changed that, yes I know, they seem to always keep the special tools a secret lol.

Ok so here is the way to do it:

1. Create your build, or to test it like I did, just rez a floor and some walls.

2. Link them all together by selecting each item and then using the Link button in the edit panel.

3. Go into edit and then check the Edit linked box and select the pieces you want phantom. Ex: select one of the walls.

4. Change to the Features tab in edit and while you have the items selected, choose the drop down on the right that says Physics Shape Type, and change it to NONE.

5. Do a happy dance through the now phantom wall.

 

I love learning new things in Second Life, it used to be a daily event, not so much lately, but it is great how much you can learn here. Now this made Whimsy Winx very happy, as she is a great builder, and for anyone that has had to do the rezzer set up for builds, this makes it so much easier to do.

Speaking of Whimsy Winx, for the My Attic event she created – and yes she actually made this art herself in Photoshop using her own awesome skills – these pieces of art, as a collection that you can get for the incredible price of only 95L . I am only showing one of the pieces, this is my favourite actually because it reminds me of Klimpt. You really need to scoop these up as they are perfect additions to the home, and are done on canvas sculpts so that they have sides and wood frames behind and it is all so arty and fabulous.

Today BareRose released this lovely open shirt in Mesh, it comes with three different bow colours, the brown was just perfect for my outfit. The shirt comes with arm attachment and body separate and also has pants included. But the Dade slacks by Celoe were just perfect, the colour and style just really hug the hips and are comfy where they need to be. I finally did all colours pics of them and the fabulous Xylia pumps also from Celoe. I am such a lover of toecap shoes, and these ones come in such beautiful colour options. My favourite part of them is the fact that the toe of the shoe is slightly raised, my shoes are snobs lol.

The hair I am wearing is an adorable and sexy style from Exile, I wore the group gift version of this style in a previous post, but wanted to wear it again for this look, as it was definitely suited.

The skin is Cara, a recentish release from YS & YS skins. The skin has with teeth and without, but I couldn’t resist the teeth option, so you will just have to imagine the lips closed or DEMO DEMO DEMO. The make ups are lovely and there is a great fresh faced look to this skin, Beautiful features and a stunning overall look. Be sure to try them, and all the other wonderful YS & YS Skins available, as there are other new ones I will show soon.

I have been watching some incredible TV shows lately, the one I am watching right now is TOUCH, what an amazing show. The idea of course being that everyone and everything is connected in some way, it is an emotional roller coaster, you should all definitely watch it.

Another roller coaster ride, was definitely waiting for the latest release from Maitreya. Today it was all released, and well worth the wait, boots, skirts, jeans, and these incredible leggings with and without the added boots options. Now I love them with the boots, because it’s the easiest way to get dressed ever, but without is just wonderful for mixing and matching, and finding out that the Allure socks fit over them was just a bonus. With the Moxie, the socks didn’t fit over the top, but with the tops removed and the socks still visible in the footwear themselves it is still just so cute.

The leggings come in three types, shine, disco and suede. I am wearing the shine in the two lighter colours, and the suede in the brown. I was also excited to discover that the coin belt an older Maitreya item fits well over this style, and seeing as the bum of these is superb, it is all win.

The beautiful mid sleeve v neck top is from Celoe, a recent release that comes in solids and a two tone stripe in a variety of blends. I love this tops style as it has a V neck at the front and the back, which is just so lovely. The Ano top from Celoe is also a great top to wear often, the tube top style elongated is spot on.

The mini top from R.icielli is one of their recent huge Mesh releases. The style is so sweet, but cheeky with the mid section left bare for a sexy look with these pants, but also allows for a nice fit with high waisted items. The wonderful clutch and bag are also from the R.icielli release, and are just beautiful leather work and detailing.

The skins I am wearing are from Adam n Eve, this is the Tasha skin. It comes with really beautiful make ups and it always includes manicures, pedicures, hair bases and brow options, and with this skin the NEW Dimples tattoo layers.

Finishing off the look are the new nails by Leverocci, these are rigged mesh and have a great rosy manicure set which I am wearing, you can see the tips in the skins pics, but the gloss is amazing and they fit so well. They are really well priced too if you aren’t into buying full packs with colours you wont wear, these are 30L each colour or 500 for the full pack.

My Attic @ The Deck – Summer Abroad 1955-1960

My Attic 1

My Attic 2

My Attic 3

Last night The Deck started an event called My Attic. The event was something we had been tossing around back and forth for the past year, due to the theme having to be special to us to follow through with. The concept is My Attic, a place where one can store memories, from the past, some that may become memories of the future, as well as an exploration into peoples lives and imagination. The My Attic concept also lead the way to coming up with sub-themes, a theme within a theme if you will. The first theme within is “Summer Abroad 1955-1960” and the designers that have been a part of this first event came up with some incredible items for it. I am so lucky to have such incredible designers as a part of The Deck sim, and we also were blessed to have two Special Guests as part of the event as well, Exile and Chelle.

The list of designers is as follows and all items for the duration are 95L . There are so many amazing things, that I do hope you can stop by and check it out.

Wonderful items all priced at 95L for ten days, from 21st of March until 31st the stores that are part of ‘My Attic – Summer Abroad 1955-1960″ are :

Adorkable Poses
Chelle Makeup (Special Guest)
Cracked Mirror
DCNY Clothing and Accessories
EMO-tions Hair
Exile Hair (Special Guest)
Frou Frou Hair
Idiosyncrasy Skins
Maitreya Clothing and Accessories
Miel Accessories
Mina Hair
Ploom Hair and Poses
The Strand Hair and Accessories
W.Winx Home & Garden

Whimsy did an amazing build for the event, it is such a nice welcoming space, and we even set up a seating area out the back, so bring some friends by.

The first look I have on is a mix of looks using the same dress as a base item. The dress is the Audrey Dress in Mesh by Maitreya for the event. This dress was inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s and is just divine. As soon as I saw the dress I wanted to wear it many different ways. The first is the true way, with the beautiful leather Mesh gloves and Clutch bag from Celoe ,. the Panama hat/hair I am wearing is also from My Attic, it is by The Strand and is a combination of sculpts prims and Mesh. The hat has a texture change script and has a variety of colours and textures to wear.

The second look is with the savoir top from Maitreya, this look has a pure school teacher, girl next door vibe to it.  The She loves you hair is Mesh by Exile, they did an amazing modern take on the backcombed looks of that era, so pretty and the headband is texture change. This third look is a very mature high class look derived from that style, the fur cape is from COCO, this thing is wonderful and very stylish over this dress. The oversized Jackie O glasses are also Maitreya’s item for My Attic, and so is this sleek short bob style from Mina Hair, I really like the Deborah hair, it is very sophisticated, but definitely lends itself to the more extroverted styles of the era.

The second pic is showing off the adorable Vintage Summer Beachwear ensemble from DCNY for My Attic. I love the pieces of this set, not only is the dress flirty and so sexy, the print is just beautiful. The outfit also comes with a hat, but I didn’t wear that, also the bag, bracelet and necklace. The oversized pearls are wonderful. Totally adorable as well is the Clara hair from Ploom for My Attic, as an additional attachment are the cute little bows, they are texture change also and many of the colours work with the DCNY colours. I am using the poses from Ploom that they did for the event, some work with the beachball that comes with, the others work with the parasol. The other hair I am wearing is the Italian Boy style from Frou Frou, also at My Attic. This hair is unisex and so curly and fabulous, and in that time period boy cuts were really very popular too.

Attention to the eyes, in the pic on the left I am wearing the mix and match shadows from Chelle, these are genius shadows tattoo layers, because she did both inner and outer options of shadow, so that you can actually make your own combinations. I though went with the all gold in both for this pic. The other me has on the wonderful Meow Peeper glasses from Miel at My Attic, these are so cute and come in a great range of colour options using the HUD, and they change by frame only or arms and lenses, and you can change the sizes really well too.

I took off the skirt from the set and I added the Jennifer skirt from Elymode, this beautiful Mesh skirt is available at the Flux event for this month, so you will have to grab that, as it comes in a print version also, so great value and wonderful style. The last pic has on a about to be released Spring version of the Jennifer skirt from Elymode, this is a beautiful bright gradient. The pink was a perfect match to the sexy vintage pin up style look of the Total Betty Corset dress that is also at My Attic in four colours. The top of it looks beautiful with the skirt, but as it was made is so sexy and provocative. I am wearing the EMO-tions hair called Robin, different than the usual styles from EMO-tions she did an incredible job on capturing the styles of the time, and this hair looks beautiful casually or more formal looking. The accessories are from The Strand, their very cool plastic looking bangles and earrings in Mesh. Plastic and Bakelite Jewelry was huge then, and if you are fortunate to have any now, keep it safe, because it is definitely collectable.

The skins I am wearing throughout the post are by Idiosyncrasy for My Attic, they are Audrey Vintage and Debutante, and as you know I am always a fan of these skins, these ones are super sexy, and the make ups are ideal for the theme. So if you like vintage looks DEMO DEMO DEMO.

The other poses used in this post are from aDORKable for My Attic. They did two sets for the event, one with a great Mesh suitcase prop. So make sure you come and try the aDORKable Poses and the Ploom Poses available at My Attic.

Eire

It has been an incredibly busy week all over Second Life. Today is Saint Patricks Day, which for me always has a mixed emotion wrapped up in it. I do have fond memories of past St. Patricks day though, in Australia we have a parade, and also many locations have big events for the day. Once you are over 18 it is a must to have at least spent one at The Rocks. Personally though my favourite of memories was one year going to the local ice rink which they had covered with boards and there was a huge St. Paddy’s day dance. It was really cool watching all these people dancing, spanning every single age group as well, which was really nice. My Mummy is Irish – really from Ireland, so to all the Irish, half Irish, friends of Irish people, and people that just want to spend the day drinking Guiness or Green Berr,  and eating oysters – not sure where the Guiness and Oysters thing came from – Happy St. Patricks Day to you all.

A neighbour to Ireland is of course the UK, and if you have ever been to London, then Mayfair will be familiar to you in some degree. The Mayfair sim opened yesterday to much oooing and ahhhing, and a lot of frenzied shoppers. It is now the homebase location of the Mainstores of Celoe and Mon Tissu. The whole sim is Mesh and it is truly incredible…I will admit that the first time I saw it on completion I did cry. That may seem a little silly, or a lot silly to some, but to me having been in Second Life for nearly 6 years now, seeing something as beautiful and such a build of passion by talented creators, who I know worked so hard for 5 straight months on it, it was just so incredibly overwhelming. Then also factor in how Second Life has grown with its content creators, and with the tools we have available now, it is just wonderful to have been here long enough to see it. I actually took some pics of the sim, and the insides of the stores, you can see them HERE.

The Dade Slacks which are New from Celoe, are just glorious sturdy fabric flat fronted pants. I love how these are created, they have such a ‘favourite go to’ quality to them, they will age well and just get more comfy the more you wear them. I also love the colours that they come in, from really traditional slack shades to bright and spectacular brights, such as this wonderful gold colour. I wanted to mix that bright rich colour with a more subtle shade, and this beautiful shirt from UFO @ Collabor88/March was perfect. It has a boho look to it, so the latest Mesh hair from Ploom fit the bill. Coincidentally the HUD that allows for texture change had this colour already embedded so it was meant to be.

What totally enhanced the look was the New Makeup layer eye shadow from Elymode. I saw that she had just released these great Spring Mix Shadows, with a great two tone blend of shadow in such rich vibrant colours. My other favourite parts to this look, is the wonderful and quirky Dor Bag from Celoe, this bag is a great sized tote, and this one has Giraffes on it, how cute right. Then there are the wonderful jewelry pieces, all over sized chunky yummyness. There are two necklaces worn and they layer really well. The shoes are Organique flats by Ingenue, also part of Collabor88/march, these are pretty bow fronted shoes, that have a really comfy look with great texture detailing.

The next look, I also did two necklaces, these though are from the fabulous Bliensen + MaiTai and are their release for Fashion for Life. The tick tock necklace is really inspired, and just a little heartwarming with it’s old charm of a pocket watch. It is the Sakura version, which went well with my very floral clothing. Normally mixing prints is a fine line, and with the dark version of the Chelsea dress its darker print flower pattern was subtle enough to mix with these great floral print leggings from Kyoot @ Collabor88/March.

I really liked the blue accents in the leggings, so went with adding a little more with the addition of the fabulous new Mesh bag from R.icielli. The Yuse bag is a stunning style, and comes with two options, hand held or forearm with pose. Both worked well with the poses I chose from aDORKable. The Yuse bag also comes in a splendid range of colours, so be sure to check out their great new range of Mesh items. I added a little bit more in this fine blue, with the RB tank, the straps poking out from the dress are just a great splash of colour. All this blue made red hair a must, and in Australia we call redheads Bluey, no real clue why, it seems to be a thing that gets yelled out every so often at a pub, or when some obnoxious guy is trying to drunkenly hit on you. Ok I finally looked it up, and the reason is apparently because it’s ironical, just like calling a tall person Shorty, go figure, us Aussies are just odd.

The last look combines some of the great colours of the Irish flag, I am being a good little Half Irish girl, Mummy would be proud lol. It started with two incredible Celoe Mesh items. First off the Apple coloured Xylia pumps, such great shoes as also seen in the second pic, and then add to that the OMG I love this Tango coloured Nikka Mesh Skirt. The skirt is divine, the length is great the colours are awesome, and the high waist is lovely, but it is the fishtail back that I love the most, not only does it have the semi pleated flare at the back, but also the perfect seam and arch shaped stitching over the top, like a true fishtail skirt would have. LOVE IT!

Three more items from collabor88/march are the Yummy ring and necklace with crystals, they are also fabulously chunky and seriously that ring would do some major damage if you jabbed someone with it, thank goodness crystals like this are supposed to be therapeutic. The glasses have a wonderful leaf texture to them, and they are also from Collabor88/March from Intrigue & Co, they are so cute, and I did edit move them to look as though I was holding them instead of wearing them, just so they all fit in the same scene for a closer look. The other amazing jewlery pieces are from Celoe, more lovely Mesh items, with amazing shine and texture.

The skins I am wearing are Brianna from Izzies, such a great looking face and body on this skin, there are also wonderful lipsticks and eyeshadow add ons which I will show in more detail soon. DEMO DEMO DEMO.

Fashion For Life – American Cancer Society

FFL 1

Fashion for Life 2012 sim map

Fashion For Life 2012 has started. This event gets bigger each and every year, and this year is truly jaw dropping. There are 9 fully loaded sims with incredible stores throughout. The end two sims are the official American Cancer Society sim and the Dream Seeker Estates Sim. Dream Seeker Estates are a big sponsor of the event, with other sponsors having main stores on the sims that they sponsor.

You can shop to your hearts content and look out for the special Fashion For Life vendors in each store, because proceeds from those go to the Charity. They have already started with well over a Million Linden in donations and fees, and every single dollar collected goes to the American Cancer Society. There are also Gatcha machines on each sim and in the stores, and there is a raffle kiosk placed all over the event, where you can make a donation of 100L and go into the running for one of the many prizes that have been collected for the event…each prize has a value of over 1000L.

I took some pictures of the event, and the builds are wonderful, each sim had a different builder, and a different theme. There are 9 sims in total and an events sim, but I would really recommend taking the time to visit each sim slowly, and even go back a few times while the event is on, just so you don’t miss anything.

Best Wishes to Donna Flora

Red

Onyx

Choc

Platform Wedges

The other day I got an IM from the wonderful Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion. She was enquiring about whether or not I was going to do a post on the A-Z of Donna Flora, this was semi news to me – Whimsy had mentioned something along the lines of it a week or so before in skype. I had not had a chance to do a post yet, but promised that I would try my hardest to do something.

Squinternet the incredibly talented designer behind the Donna Flora brand is really sick, and in need of support and well wishes from all, and while I don’t claim to know Squinternet well other than talking to her a few times during set up of Hair Fair, and ran into her setting up at Shoe Fair one year… all I have ever heard from my friends that know her well; is that she is an incredibly warm and giving person.

Anessa Stine, Cajsa Lilliehook and Gidge Uriza all call her a close friend, and that to me is enough proof that she is a great lady. But if I was to not have any connection friends wise, and just based things on her creations alone, I would definitely believe she was incredibly passionate, had an artistic eye for detail, and a strong love for vintage fashion and beautiful things. Squinternet has such a beautiful variety of clothing, shoes, jewelry and hair, and they all show such growth and promise of future wonderful releases to come.

I did go shopping there this morning, but I also had some pieces from over the years. The first outfit I ever got from Donna Flora – not shown – was actually a present from Whimsy, which still has her name on the folder so I never forget. In the first picture I am wearing a jacket and jabot – scarf – that is part of a set, and this was actually out in the courtyard of the store, and as it was latex I was really intrigued as it did not seem to me like a usual Donna Flora item. It does come with shorts and stockings and other jacket pieces, but i went with the basic clothing layer option only and the collar and shoulder pads.

I really like the androgynous feel of the look, with the dress pants from SLink in Mesh, and the bra top from Maitreya. The hair I am wearing is also Donna Flora, the hair base has these adorable little almost kiss curl like tendrils at the hairline, subtle but enough to set it apart from regular modern bases, and imply a more traditional style of the past. The shoes I have on are Kyoots release for Collabor88 March, it started at midnight last night and the creations as usual are fabulous. These platform wedges have texture change heels, so you click to choose between wood and dark or light weave options. There are beautiful colours, and they represent the colour palette of this months theme.

The earrings I am wearing are part of a set called BLUE, they come in Onyx as I bought, and diamond. I was really torn which one to go for, but I decided that Onyx suited me best. As soon as I saw the necklace – which brings us to the next picture – it was instant love. I have said so many times in the past, and in RL this has always been a big draw for me. To be able to capture the attention of admirers when you walk into a room is one thing, but to keep their attention when you are walking away is something you should always aim for. Jewelry such as this does exactly that, the choker like appearance of the front is divine, with an almost peacock like plumage design. Then the back cascades down the spine and it really is eye catching.

To really show off this detailed piece, I went with the sequin scoop dress from League. Though usually I would go with a backless gown or more formal affair for a piece like this, I wanted to wear it immediately, and I think this sexy number definitely works for it too. You will notice my make up in this post, the eye shadows are all from Donna Flora and are part of the Mina pack, you can buy them as single shadows but the pack was a better deal and such beautiful rich full shadow that can really change the overall look of your skin in a positive way. The hair I am wearing in this pic and the next are from Clawtooth, the two long styles are also in this months new Collabor88 collection, so be sure to stop over and grab everything.

The other League items for this post are these organic silk dresses and tops. Organic is the theme of this months Collabor88, but to be honest these dresses and tops should be called Orgasmic, because the silk is just so sensual and sexy, and the colours, style and the ability to layer them all is just marvelous. As you can see in this pic I am wearing the goldenrod top over the chocolate dress skirt, with all layers provided it is easy to layer them. The top also looks great with pants.

Ending the post are the beautiful Posca earrings from Donna Flora. These are beautiful chandelier style earrings, with beautiful Imperial Topaz gemstones and diamond clusters. As elegant as they are, they are beautiful in their ability to be worn more casually whenever the mood strikes, and with these beauties that should be often.

Signing off with a big hug to Squinternet, I hope that you get better soon.

Adding Flair, a post at Second Life Blogs

Earlier last month I was invited with some incredible Fashion Bloggers to be part of the Spring Fresh Fashion event on the Second Life Website blog. We had to have our posts in by the 1st of March and I had mine ready and waiting ever since…which I must admit has driven me a bit crazy, because I haven’t done any posts here since then. Now the post is up and I would love it if you would go and see what I posted. My concept was to show how accessories could take a classic basic look, and really enhance your appearance. I called the post Adding Flair and really hope you enjoy it.
