LANd Ahoy


Two different tones in the same skin, can really change a look and a feel for the same make ups. It can change a dismal day into something really fun and joyful, or it can better reflect a more somber mood.

I often feel that way with skins, and being able to actually swap from tone to tone can really change everything about a day. I have been flat out lately, and have actually been negligent in inventory sorting, so much that it got overwhelming. I have even been running to the same folders to put on in a hurry, as a mad dash and suitable look go to, and that is very unusual for me, but one folder that kept repeating was definitely the first and second dress today.

I found myself wanting to put it on many times, just because it was pretty and made me happy with it’s swish swish. Also the fabulous Promenade boots from Kalnins ended up being the ones I most enjoyed with the dress, kind of a mix of dressy casual, that I am dressing to look like I didn’t try look, but we all know it took planning to put together lol.

Depending on what look you are going for, both the boots, which are texture change and a fabulous take on the cowboy boot, making a sexier ankle boot version, also with texture change metal features, and even glow …with the Jocelyn dress from DeLa come up a treat. Also as the dress comes in great solid colours, but also on every layer, I used the opportunity to pull out an oldie but a goodie clothing layer belt from Diversity called Adena. Clothing layer belts can be a fun way to totally change the look of something, and if they are on all layers, they are priceless.

The addition of some accessories and a fabulous hairstyle from OH , Whimsy and I went to OH last week and bought it out, I think that Fhaya Denimore better hurry up and make more, they are all delightful and really well priced, all of the hair I am wearing today is from be sure to check it out, if you haven’t already.

Now back to the divine DeLa, the Jocelyn in black with the bits and pieces is definitely a night out look, where as the Jocelyn dress in the red with the addition of the Sweater Wrap in white, also from DeLa makes it more of a casual smart day look, or maybe even an early date ending with a nice stroll along the beach – made sure I wasn’t corny enough to say promenade ;).


Not just the overall looks, but also the colours, the grey I couldn’t get into fast enough in the Lita Set, now I am wearing a camisole that is a separate item with this today, only because due to all different skins and how people make them, there is a slight showing of nipple in this skin/set combo, it is not that way for all but it is something you do need to take into account, as do the designers creators. It was also the tiniest sliver but I don’t show, so it was not something I could just let slide without letting you know.

But because of this, I was able to do a less naughty look, but in my opinion just as, if not more sexy. The Legwarmers come with the Lita set, and they are just fabulous too, I can see wearing those with many things, and maybe if we are lucky Kura will box them up separately or something similar in the future, because with the upcoming cooler weather for many, these are just all sorts of fun.

The other set in that killer sexy red, is the Lisa set , and just YUM, the colours this set comes in are just marvelous. Strapless and provocative, with the added half sleeves, and those slouchy thigh highs, all too yummy. Because of the way it is built as well, you could so totally mix and match colours from one set to another, and make your own fabulous combination’s.

The skin I am wearing with these looks is all by Fishy Strawberry, and the skin is LAN in the Latte and Cappuccino tones. They are not so far apart tone wise, but the overall effect of them is so different I had to show both this way. The make ups are just lovely, not overly done, yet with a really nice selection of both eyes and lips, as well as hairbases in light and dark, and just because she could, Fae has added hair to be worn with the bases , in the packs.

Pin Up Doll


I do share well with others, so much so that I am not keeping these yummies to myself for any longer. I had actually started writing my post for this morning, when I got sidetracked, which isn’t too difficult with our lot. We can be very motivating for eachother, but also very very naughty at dangling tempting tidbits in front of each other too.

As I am no longer working – hugs Onyx tight because I already miss her bunches – that’s not such a bad thing, as usually I would be sleeping about now. But I got to spend some awesome time with Justice, Whimsy, Gary and Ashia tonight instead. Yes ok I said morning and night all in the same time, but it is coming up to both yours and mine.

Lately as I mentioned before I think, Ashia has been on a retro kick, and I am never off mine, but we do run around in all sorts of looks, and this one for her at the moment has stuck big time, taking us over to Jetdoll for their sale, we ended up doing a quick runaround town, and ended up in Ingenue, which I was all up in the other week with the Harlow release.

We did the hair thing, all three of us, and then we went nuts in the clothing section. I knew what I wanted desperately I just had to find it, as I had seen it on a girl recently and got sidetracked by Harlow the last time in the store, you see many many moons ago I had a desperate need for a pencil skirt with a Bustle, I am talking way back in 2007 , I even begged Sachi to make me one, and even tried taking things from other sets and putting them all together. But no need to do that anymore, and I am stoked.

All three sets I bought are just divine, lending themselves to all sorts of possibilities, especially as the high waist option is a separate layer, so you can wear it with other tops from other sets, or stores. One boy is the top set, giving you two incredible skirt options, the fuller flexi skirt is just so heavenly, you really do feel like you have been transported back in time.

Paris Lullaby is a lovely pink lovers set, and is the one that provides me with my pencil bustle look I have wanted forever, so now I am able to merge that skirt with endless looks, and I am in love. Lastly there is Natalie, another highwaisted gem, the sheer blouse comes with an under layer bustier in offwhite so as not to show more than you want.

All of these items were stunning additions for the delightful canvas that is the Mia Doll skin by Idiosyncrasy, this new skin comes in a porcelain like tone, with vivid make ups and a delicate face. The Doll series was a past release from Idiosyncrasy on her all hand drawn skins, but she has now taken those attributes and created a skin in keeping with her newer releases.

The smokey eyes definitely enhance the vintage look, and the rosebud lips just add even more spice to the look. Make sure you try on all the DEMOS you can, and look out for more of the upcoming Mia skin range.

The shoes are the most recentish release from Tesla and they are the Vixen Desire heels, with 6 inches of height to add more to your statuesque silhouette.

The fabulous Poses are all from DARE, a mix of poses from most of the sets at the store, they really do inspire such creative looks.

Leo Lover


Slipping into something sexy is an everyday opportunity in Second Life. There isn’t much that can beat New skin and lingerie, and there definitely isn’t much that can top my addiction to all things Leo.

One of the first items I ever purchased at Artilleri was the Leo Bikini, as previous posts have stated I even benefitted financially from the purchase, due to the old time ‘Best in ” type club events back in 2006. I promise I spent it all again at Artilleri and then some over the years. When grabbing a Bikini it is often my first choice, even though I have hundreds, there is something about it that for me was the true essence of Rock a billy love , and the ability to wear that look as much as I wanted here in SL.

The last week or two Ashia has been rocking her retro out, and looking fantastic doing so, so much so that we had to all venture over to Artilleri for refills. Am I glad we did, because I was aghast that there was a Leo release that somehow or other I missed, I was making all sorts of put out noises while I pressed the buy button faster than the first “WHAT THE”.

Not only is the dress in my always loving Leo print, but it is strapless and OMG A SYSTEM SKIRT dress. Yes you know me, I have the System Skirt love all over the place. The wrap around look of this dress is just gorgeous, and it does also come in a beautiful Zebra print, but it is Leo love for me. Also the hair rose by Essentia that I am wearing, was made for me based on the original Leo bikini, just so I could be all matchy matchy.

The hair I am wearing is also from Artilleri, I recently went a round a bout way of asking Antonia if she could delight us with more hair, but alas not at the moment, and just to not traumatise people with hair they can’t have I didn’t wear my older loved styles.

The skins are the latest release from Dutch Touch, the River skins share some of the same make ups as previously released with Cleo, but for those that Cleo didn’t work with get another chance for these divine blendings of shadow and liner. They also have a wonderful cleavage enhancement option, as well as brows, lashes and down there non shaved clothing layers, because the skins themselves are SHAVED for the win. Seriously the jeans I have on right now, it’s lucky they are.

The River skins like all the Dutch Touch skins can easily become your all in one look, they give you the opportunity to really define the character in your own shape.

Being able to show off the body in Dutch Touch’s newish line of Lingerie was a great change. These three sets are a wonderful merge of retro and athletic, the cross back and shapely panties, are all lovely, in colours that will delight the die hard Dutch Touch fans. All hand drawn and all delightful.

Pink Skye of Mine

PFLeafy copy
PFLeafy2 copy
PFLeafy3 copy

Skin/Shape Expo was actually the brainchild of Foxy Innis , a shape creator here in Second Life. She believes strongly as do many, that the symmetry between a well balanced look, is the ratio of skin and shape. Now I don’t do well with change, especially on others, as friends will attest..I get really upset if they do any sorts of changes, unless of course I supervised lol.

But with all of these beautiful and talented creators joining each other for such a worthwhile cause, I felt it was the least I could do to change my shape for some pictures. Now I had to start off slowly, and it made it easier on me that Leafy and Pink Fuel are both participants at this years Skin/Shape Expo.

If you have ever explored outside of either store, you will know they share a sim. So it was a no brainer to bring those two together in one post, and as the shapes compliment the skins so well, it worked great. The latest release in the Skye Skins by Pink Fuel are just lovely, they are innocent but with that kind of cheekyness built in.

I made my own shape, it took me a year to stop touching it in one way or another, and I have pretty much kept it consistent over the last three years, if I make a tweak it stays forever. But after wearing these shapes today, and being able to see them with such adorable skins, I can certainly see the appeal in wanting ‘that look”  I even went so far as wanting to live up to “that look ” with the little outfits I put on.

The first one being a set I bought recently off Xstreet for some ridiculously inexpensive amount, and had a ball running around in it for a day and night. Curvy and Cute is that naughty nurse. The shape is Bree and with the Skye Beestung looking skin from Pink Fuel she is perfect.

I had to add Katat0nik to this mix with the hair in all three pics, as I truly think PF and Leafy lovers just have to be Kat fans too.All three styles have many options, one being that you can hide and show the music symbols , and or headsets, which makes for fun looks either way.

So while at the Skin/Shape Expo make sure you visit all the booths, and grab DEMOS for everything, and even if you grab a group of friends and have a shape swapping party, it could find you something you never knew you wanted.

I have been saving this hair for the right time, it had to be something stunning, and sleek..with that air of sophistication, I knew I wanted something Audrey-esque – yes it’s an official type, because I just said so.

The Harlow Gown & Cocktail dress is by Ingenue, and I am glad that as lazy at blogging that Betty herself says she is, that today she actually did it. As soon as I had it in my hands I was changed into the top portion, I was so in love with the shape and overall look, that I just had to hope that it was wearable with dress pants in a less dramatic way as well.

The Lampshade hairstyle is just amazing, and the colourchange options made it an absolute joy to play with. I am wearing Jesse one of the Skin/Shape Expo skins , that also has a breast enhancement option, which seems to definitely be the new black lately. Beautiful mouth, and incredibly captivating eyes. No need for prim lashes with this beauty, the lashes on the skin itself are divine. There is also a hairbase option which looks fantastic with pulled back and headbanded styles like Ryan from HCT, recently HCT has redone their textures, definitely worth taking a squiz.

Lovely Nyte


I have been really loving the resurge of so many older designers lately. Whether its seasonal returns, or the fact that they have their passion for fashion back, either way I am stoked.

One such designer, who didn’t actually go anywhere, but has been releasing much more often lately is Nyte n Day creator Nyte Caligari, all the clothes I am wearing today are from her recentish releases, and one that I think is older, but I love no less than the others.

The first one is the Mini Dress, that is a stretch ribbed off the shoulder that has so many possibilities for wear, belt it , add layers to it, whichever you like it is a perfect staple. Sometimes it is the simple styles like these that can have such a broad appeal.

The Jewelry is from Bliensen + MaiTai and available at Jewelry Fair, the set has scripted colour change for the beading and metal, and it really is a delightful visit to older times in its craftmanship.

I was also able to match the beads to my eyeshadow, so how cool is that. The skins I am wearing are Lovely II the soon to be released makeups by Gala at Skin/Shape fair that starts in less than 24 hours.

The lips on these have more of a matte finish, but with a definite shine when reflected in a nice light setting. This skin has always to me been very character driven , it will be your shape that defines it for sure. The make ups are deeper , more sultry even though not especially dark, but you definitely want to dig deeper into the person behind the face.

The second Nyte n Day creation is Flamenco , a perfect dancing dress, but without any swishing skirts. This dress is hot, I had to get them all, and over a span of a few hours I think I managed to change into every colour while parading around in front of Mel while we went exploring sims.

I want so badly for Nyte to also make this as a tube option, only the black parts of the dress, so that we can wear anything we want under it. I would LOVE THAT.

Another perfect combo is the Slice set with the Sunday hair from Magika, recently Magika did a hair a day for a week , and this hat/hair style is fab. It’s kind of a sexy modern take on the old paperboy look. Also wearing again the fabulous Long Boots by J’s with the rounded toes.

The last pic is a set that I am not sure if it is old or new, but the Posh set is a definite fav. The colour is gorgeous and the set comes with pants as well as shorts. The style of the top is kind of like a reverse plunge. Was ever so excited too that straight out of the bag my hairwrap that comes with hair was the exact right shade of green.

Taste the Rainbow

She came, she saw, she kicked it. Seriously Anya OhMai is another reason to love all that Second Life offers. Starting SL in march of this year, she has absolutely nailed it, starting as an enthusiastic fashion lover, to blogger, to designer in such an incredibly short amount of time.
Sofia IM’s me yesterday and told me I was going to get a delivery, and I did, in the form of a multitude of incredible colours and styles. That quickly followed by a TP to the OhMai main store where I proceeded to buy up the rest of it. The colours are the first thing you notice, arranged in beautiful packs at ridiculously low prices. Staples are the first thing that comes to mind, there are so many Must Have items in there, it’s insane.

My first new addiction are the sheer leggings, they stop just below the heel, making them super fabulous, and they are not only semi sheer , but RIBBED. There are a variety of colour packs, that all blend so well with everything in the store.

The Catherine blouse I am wearing is a new item in the OhMai store, it is definitely fabulous in it’s somewhat Chanel look, and a FANTASTIC use of the system skirt, you know how much I love it when people put it to such a great use as this one.

The black and white combo, with the accessories from Glow Studio’s is a definite winner, the Seasons Bag Winter bag is a great carryall, for extra shopping of Must Have items.

Could the Emma Ruffles dress be more adorable, I don’t think so. I mean first off when I put it on I had the without white skirt portion and I was in love with it, then I realised there was another skirt choice, and I squeeled. Not only again do they go with the wonderful leggings, but I only wore the sock portion of one pair, and it’s too funna. Seriously with this colour palette that Anya is using , you can literally “taste the rainbow” :P.
Three years ago now, when Fiachra of Essentia was making the hair roses, we absolutely loved the Pink Hawaiian rose , and now I have the perfect way to wear it. The thumbelina dresses are so creative and just delicately beautiful. They would make perfect Fae wear, but the style and grace of these dresses makes them just incredible cocktail dresses for all.

There are actually two skirt options in these too, but I loved the bloom ones, and what’s not to love in a formal dress that turns into swimwear, because we all know what can happen at those upmarket occasions when the press go home.
Due to the limits of the mesh and clothing layers, in the past we were unable to get a lot of shape out of our clothing, that has changed a lot with the implementation of sculpted prims, and OhMai has been pushing that envelope.

The Nina Sweaters give you the best little bubble butt ever. The shape and style of these oversized sweaters is fabulous, the extra detailing in the pockets and buttoned sleeves, as well as the adorable hoody attachment at the back. Again because of the design in these sweaters, you are able to wear contrasting or complimentary colours underneath, to tie it all in.

I am wearing the High Rise tanks with these , and believe me when you see the prices of the packs of these, you will think Anya has lost her marbles. But then you can be overly appreciative, because it free’s up more money for everything else in the store lol.

Lastly and one of the reasons it all came about, as Sofia fell for this beautiful Pocket Cardigan and who can blame her, I must have grabbed everyone of those as well, the colours, shape and overall idea of them is marvy, they have a definite vintage  look to them, and I am so all into that.

Wearing them over the high rise tanks, and bringing it all together with the Mo Pocket pants from Miel, these pants I have shown in the past, but they definitely deserve to keep on returning, another fantastic use of prims to enhance the whole look.

All of the hair I am wearing today is from KC, Kitsune Couture, a store now owned by Niennra Kitsune of Magika fame. Niennra branched out on her own recently, and has been creating hair and clothing under her own label, so make sure you check out her new items. One of the styles shown is actually a gift from her Subscribo , so make sure you join that when you visit.

The shoes are all from Tesla, and I was blessed to find that her colour palette range, as much as it varies from style to style, allowed for some great matchy matchy colours with the OhMai range. Still loving the Carina skin by LAQ I kept it on for this post, to give you another taste, just in case you didn’t already go and demo it yet.
