Dance like no one is watching

Dance like no ones watching

If it was the mid to late 80’s and it was Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening, you would find me on a dance floor. If I could manage the Monday, Tuesday and Thursday I would too. We had a lot of raves, and then morning after day dance parties as well, so on public holidays that was a huge thing here….so gross Tuesday morning.

This look is completely me back then, the oversized earrings – which are gorgeous feather earrings by Zaara – and all black with coloured shoes. My Mum used to threaten me with depriving me of new clothes if I did not get over the all black thing, but that never lasted long, she loves meeeeee.

This set by Pixicat is a perfect skirt and mid top, the fabric option is reflective enough to get you all the attention, and the skirt flits just right when you get your groove on. I went over to a club I had seen in search, and it was packed, just enough to get a pic of me getting my dance on. I even added some great particle hand attachments from Coles Corner. If there was such a thing as particles dancing attachments in RL, I would have been the worst offender – glow sticks were boring. I adorned myself also with some great rings from Minimal, I did need to move them around a bit, but they resize so easily in edit, that that was a painless task and so worth the effort.

The side pony was my go to often, and the hair from Exile nailed it, but then so was changing my hairstyle at least 5 times a night, up  down, back front, it all happened… a bit like event shopping in SL by the time I have visited three I have changed so many times I do not know where I started.

The skin I am wearing as an applier is a recentish release by YS&YS, it is the Teresa skin, and the hud is fabulous, as it has moles or freckles and moles and freckles and brow colours and make up, it is an all giving all loving look.

The perfect finish to the look is of course the shoes, with the legwarmers built in. They are texture change warmers, so it is the shoes you pick the colour of when purchasing. They are named Portia, and when I was a teen I loved that name, it is from Merchants of Venice a book we had to read in High School,  so definitely in keeping with the time period of my life, so thank you Fri.day for that blast from the past.

Maxi

I love that most of the items at My Attic this round looked like they were all one set, but actually broke into wearable pieces in their own right. One such item is the gorgeous Maxi Dress 2 piece sets from Girl Thursday. You can actually see Whimsy with the top of the dress in the same colour HERE. The belt on the skirt and the way it sits, is just perfect for this sensational top from Tulip. Honestly that store kits you out from head to toe, when there a month or so ago, I was lucky to get out without picking up the whole store. The front of the top is just beautiful, but the back is WOWZA!

I also love that the colour matches perfectly with the Toronto heels from Essenz, another of the stunning sets of Slink Add-ons that they have created, and this brown is just lovely. They come in 6 colours the shoes, and if it is your style of shoe, then check out the fatpack pricing.

The Arcade is starting on Sunday, and all of SL is a Twitter, and a Plurk and a Facebook with chatter about it. The hair I am wearing today is the LA version of London to LA by Exile, and both styles are just too perfect as updo’s that can be both casual or glamorous. If you have not seen the shopping list for The Arcade this round you are going to need to start selling things and maybe even cash in a 401K or two ( I don’t really know what a 401K is, but they say it a lot on TV ) The collections are superb, and this time around I am going to be hitting machines harder than I have ever done in the past, because there is just so much want and need and needing to want and wanting to need.

I am super excited about the Nylon Oufitters collection, because I have recently purchased three items from her RL selection on Society6 and they are coming soon to my RL and I cannot wait. One of the items is actually in world with The Arcade items, it is the most awesome artwork, and I am so excited that I will be able to have it in both worlds. If you have not shopped her Society6 store for yourself, then do so for others, because I cannot imagine anyone anywhere not wanting something from this selection as a gift, I chose totebags as my purchases, but there are cushions, art prints, phonecases and so many more options, I think I am going to have to get a clock as well.

Nylon Pinkney on Society6

The skin and Visage appliers for the Slink Visage head I am wearing, are again by YS & YS. This is India, and she is so pretty, I was having a hard time choosing between the selection of new faces for the Visage appliers there, but this tone was perfect for my look, and there are tones from light to dark all the way through. I do wish that YS & YS would do tones of the one face though, because you can get attached to a face and just want to go lighter or darker on seasons.

It was an incredible day running all over the grid today. The highlight was getting to talk to Essenz Shoe creator Senzati0n Domenitzo. Her store is full of incredible footwear, not only her own foot in feet shoes, but also recenly she has added Slink Compatibility and the styles are flawlessly beautiful. A fun and easy way to keep track of the names of the styles, is that they are all named after cities from all over the world. Today I am wearing Cancun, a stunning ankle boot open toed look with a multitude of thin straps from toes to ankle. The textures on these and all the footwear I managed to walk out with, are just superb…you will be seeing a lot of Essenz in the future from not only me, but anyone with a love of truly stunning footwear.

I am not sure how my style went from what I had on at the start, to how I ended up at the finish, but on our travels we visited not only SHE & HIM but also the Dark Style Fair, both of which are Flair for Events events…not to be confused of course with Flair the store I own :P. We had a great time, and the Cancun shoes are actually part of the She & Him event.

From top to toes I added along the way to my look. The top being this adorable batwing headband, not sure really if adorable works with this idea, but I think it is just too cute. It fits beautifully in the upcoming divine updo style London, created by Exile for The Arcade. The Arcade June edition will start June first and you will need this hair in your life. There are two styles actually, one is London one is L.A and they both have glasses you can wear with them. I will save those for later. But the softness and just so pretty whispy parts falling loose from this style make it a go to look.

Then I came across this amazing neck corset/facemask by Lou Lou and Co. beautifully lacey and a perfect fit over my Slink Visage mesh head. I am wearing the small. It did come with many sizes, and very impressive it also had a demo. There is a white version you can get also, but it was the black I was smitten with.

This reminded me that in our past travels we had visited Tentacio and picked up this corset, with a really cool cage tutu look. The corset comes with a hud so that you can change the colour of the cage part, but I went with the black. Fitting perfectly underneath it, and in the right look for it, the bodysuit from Maitreya comes through again.

The beautiful skin I am wearing is by YS&YS it is the Greta skin, that not only is available as a skin on the default avatar, but now you can also purchase appliers for your Slink Visage head. There are hair bases, eye shadows and lipstick options in matte and glossy, with a great price. The hand and feet appliers you purchase in the area of the main skin, so that you get the correct skin tone. I really love how the skins look with the Slink head, and am looking forward to blogging in the other skins available.

Make sure you all visit all three events, at least you have two great ones to keep you going until The Arcade starts.

Oh what a day of delightfulnessssss. First off a New to me store, with a NEW location and so many things that are just incredibly well made…what a delight. They are also having a special reduction on things later today as well as 3 fabulous HUNT items so easy to find – more info as you read.

Ok so not only did we have the newness, I signed them up for What’s New SL fell in lust and went back again with Whimsy, you can see her post HERE – if it is up yet, she does that time delayed thing. But we also have some awesome new from oldness, hope that they don’t mind being called old.

Surf Co. has a big release about to drop, you will see it scattered throughout the post. Which was perfect timing what with the gorgeous New Monica skins from GLAM Affair, it has both dark and light brows as default, with hairbase options as well as extras on tattoo layers. The skins make up this time around is a mix of both very subtle and deep night time looks…I am a bit enamoured with the baby blue and baby pink look, remember demo demo demo. Showing off skin tones with a new kini is always fun, and the retro inspired and named bikinis by Surf Co. are just awesome. Because of the style and the fuller effect in the bum, they will suit all shapes and sizes. Even those little cuties running all over SL lately…has anyone else noticed that kids are everywhere these days, so cute. There are lots of colours to choose from, more than even shown, so make sure you show some polka dot loving.

Now back up top pic, how sophisticated and divine is this combo. I am all up in love and Happy with Happy, yes that is the name of the store, and it had Whimsy and I right click buying everything in the store. The attention to detailing is incredible, so much so as to even make the inside of the sculpted sleeves a darker shade because it would be. The pants were my first love, and I didn’t pay any attention to the name until I unpacked them and WOOHOO they are called Little Miss Sassy pants lol how cool is that, meant to be I reckon. The fabric chosen, the style and cut, all are marvelous, where has this designer been hiding.

Another item from Happy is the posh wrap top, and it is just so beautiful, the work on it is great, and even though worn casually here with the great new Walkabout denim skirt from Surf Co. it is something that you could wear a long skirt or dressier pants with for a night out, it is just lovely. The shoes I have on are a recent release from Aoharu, and they are funk tastic, the colours complimented everything I am wearing so well, and I just love the shape, colours, textures and ease of tinting the toes to match the skin, I didn’t have to do anything but use one of the presets actually.

Showing the skirts again in the last pic, you can see that you can actually also wear them as stand alone shorts, which is always handy to have, especially to pull on over your bikini. The tops worn are also new Surf Co, and the ruffle detailing on these is pure Emma fabulousness. To get the full effect you will either need a jacket layer, or shirt and pants layer, so lucky her skirts come on the underpants layers too, so that I was able to wear the Preppy Cardigan from Happy over the tank from Surf Co over the skirt also from Surf Co…….layers make my world go arounddddddddddddd.

Ok he hasn’t been on all day my time that I have seen, but all during the pic taking for this post I wanted to IM Kavar of Exile and go OMG I LOVE IT. Not only is the hair fantastic, especially the second and third styles, even though I love tempest, it is the styles shown after that worked in such harmony. Exile last week released FOR FREE their whole colour pack of hair base tattoos…so now when fitting your hair, which I don’t need to do much of with Exile if ever, the layers just add a delicious hairline to the mix and with the Sasha OMG so amazing. Sasha is like the Lioness of hair, and yes I am fully aware that Lionesses don’t have manes but if they did THIS WOULD BE IT.

Finishing all the looks off I am wearing MOOD Jewelry, the work of MOOD has seriously improved since it’s opening, and I love that the pieces are both stylish and fashionable, with that added oomph of a really well put together appeal. Every release lately has been incredibly unique, and that says a lot about a jeweler in SL, because the norm is safe, but stylised pieces really help the customer stand out from a crowd.

Pure Juice Poster

One comes up, one goes down…Skin Fair is coming to an end this weekend, but an another event is taking its place today.

Pure Juice is starting today and some of the items shown in this post will be available there. So much pink and blue, but with an event named pure juice it isn’t surprising that you would have such vivid colours available. Some older items too in the form of footwear today, the stompers that I love from The Abyss, and some old Juicy Slingbacks as the Juicy sims are hosting the event.

The hair that Exile made is just awesome, with cherries interwoven in the hair, I was explaining to Whimsy how expensive cherries were down here, and that our first box of the season is always auctioned for charity, this past year the 5kg box went for over a hundred thousand dollars, such an awesome thing to do for charity. The neon 80’s looking dress is part of the event also and totally looks like something from a video clip from that era for sure. Next to it I have on part of Tutti Frutti’s release at Pure Juice, there you have a blend of pink and blue, so cute, and the really subtle print on the tops of the jeans is a nice change.

Two lovely jewelry sets are from Mood and Carolines Jewelers, soft and sublte but definitely can be worn a little dressier, especially the pearls and floral set from Carolines called Antoinette. The blonde vintage bangs ponytail from Elikatira is actually a small pack available at The Dressing Room Blue as a guest item, so gorgeous and the price is wicked.

Lastly the skin is the latest from Belleza, the Melissa skin is as usual a beautiful face with 19 skins in the fat pack, with regular, cleavage, hairbase options and an extra 7 lipsticks so you can mix it up lots and lots, the eye make up in these skins is stunning, I am so loving the smouldering and smokey looks but with such depth of colour, the blues and greens especially are just divine. Make sure if you haven’t been to grab them yet, demo demo demo.

Pure Juice is a collaberation event with Chic Limited and the Juicy sims, an effort combining many incredible designers under one roof, don’t forget to look for info on how to attend, you wouldn’t want to miss out.

Wrecked

Just over a week left of Skin Fair, and it has been crazy busy over there…just as well you have the Garden City Relief Fundraiser to keep you occupied while you wait…

Ok so SIA is a skin that is a teaser skin by League, the saucy wench Nena has teased and titillated us with this release, because the body and the face are just glorious. Alas the skin won’t be available in full until after the fair, so hopefully you can wear SIA Wrecked until then, because seriously this skin has the yummiest bum.

It comes in 6 skin tones and so many options, hair bases, cleavage, freckles and two different lipstick options. Make sure you try on the DEMO at the fair.

I am wearing the flickiest 70’s retro style hair from Exile, this hair is available in the naturals pack at the Garden City Relief Fundraiser, so be sure to get yours. Kavar the creator of the hair HOPE, is actually also a New Zealander, so this is a very important cause for him, we were all so worried about his safety when we heard.

Got me some cute Capri’s on by WoE, these have a great paint effect to the denim, and look so awesome with my sneaker boots from Duh that I completely forgot I bought ages ago. Seriously is it just me or is Linden Labs making things pop up in your inventories too? things that you haven’t seen in a hundred scrolls at different times are suddenly there.

A fun item to show off the SIA skin and all the tones is the catfight bodysuit from Miseria, this is a really cool RP item, and there are so many wonderful things at Miseria, so even if this isn’t your cuppa, something will be.

My great background is from the Second Life Stock Images Group pool by fellow blogger Aisling Macmoragh .

Skin Fair is in full flow at the moment, the amount of people visiting is huge, which is so great for all involved. You still have time to get over there if you haven’t and grab as many if not all the demos you can. I also heard that the Skin Addiction Group in world has a lot of the demos in their archives of notices, so you can also go that route and plan ahead.

Firstly though some wonderful new boots from J’s are the belted ankle boots. These come with the option of belt on or off and to my surprise the colours of this release are unlike any I have seen before from J’s. I mean get a load of that hot pink, wowza. J’s has made these for both alpha viewers as well as invisi prims options, so yay for wearing with pants with prim cuffs.

These look so fierce with my mix and match ensemble from Glam Affair, the Nero collection from a while back, pieces that I haven’t shown in the past, but look awesome mixed together. The pantaloon like shorts are so cute too, I really like how versatile they are. I am really glad that one of the sets had the black pasties on tattoo layer as well, so that I could be a bit more conservative under the lace undershirt. This collection is so cool to pull to pieces and make new and fab looks with.

Of course it all looks wonderful over the Mary Skin also by Glam Affair and at Skin Fair. The make up options are divine and so many options in the skins pack. Blush tattoos, eyebrow colours and hair base options, so much included. There are many gorgeous tones and it really is a beautiful skin, so remember DEMO DEMO DEMO.

Three new uppy do styles from Exile, a formal do, a looser more casual uppy do, and this incredible bunches of buns look that is so fun. I am showing off the different tones and hair with the lovely Cynful kini’s in other colours not shown before, and I have to show much love for the green.
