Fri.day

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.

AnotherFundraiserIIposter

It has been a funny week this week, so much going on in the land of the Avatar, but there has also been more of a worker bee buzzzzzz, silent but building as people from all over are doing their thing. That’s how it seems to me anyway…I know we have been working hard on Hair Fair stuff, and Another Fundraiser is ending on the weekend, Project Fur is about to begin and Pacific Crisis Fundraiser is on until the tenth.

The skin I am wearing today is one of the Another Fundraiser II skins, this one was donated by Fishy Strawberry and is her own skin base combined with some highlights from the Sezmra skin. Not only did Fishy Strawberry do this skin for 50L at Another Fundraiser II, but also a pack of make ups as add ons that are just amazing.

Another contributor to Another Fundraiser II is Stellar, and while setting up her skins I was totally perving on the new skirts Lexi recently released, they are booty fabulous, and the plaid print comes in a great range of colours. The fact that the colours also went so well with the New Fringe Cowgirl boots from J’s was just a bonus. I haven’t been able to take these boots off since their release, they are so fantastic, and the fringing is amazing, flexi prims are not an easy task, but to get them to move in such a great way on shoes is a huge undertaking.

The leather work on these boots is just wonderful and the colours you are used to from J’s are all there, I especially like the squared off pointed toe look in these boots, very true to the style. subtle but there.Gawk released these really adorable baggy sweaters, I love a good cropped sweater, it allows for some fun layering, or to show off some of the incredible work our skin makers do on the mid section. This one is really cute because of the sculpties giving it a look that says “I could pull this down to cover up more, but I am not gonna”.

Another firm favourite in latest releases is the Follow hair from Elikatira, this style is a long hair lovers dream, but with the beautiful behind the shoulders draping that allows all avatar sizes to enjoy it, it is really simple in style but so very pretty. You can even try the demos on in the luxury of your own home, due to Elikatira being on Marketplace .

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.

Deal Linden Labs, oh how I love you so, today you gave me a viewer that is working for me so far, and I am so excited with beta 2.5. But alas I have a complaint, more of a “WHAT THE?”

Profiles now go to browser, exciting right, the idea that you can google yours or someone elses avatar, or get it from the website I guess, whichever…but the downside is that for people that work like I do, when right clicking a notecard to get the creator, to then click their name so you can IM them or grab profile to pay them or drop an item on them NOOOO, you get webpage thing, or even worse something that says your handshake didn’t connect, well darn. So I had to actually search in the search section by name and then again same thing can’t get the regular profile, so had to open their IM to pay or pass, which leads to if they use viewers that do that, I know you are IMing me thing, your exposed to an IM you may not want to have at all.

Anyway I still love you when you make little mistakes…

On another note HUGE LOVE goes out to Flight Centre in Australia, for really coming together to help the flood victims, I have it on good authority that not only have they pledged two million, but also ten bucks from every single flight booked will go to help. They have many of their own staff up there struggling and have really gone all out to support and help, flight centre gets my vote as agency to travel with forever more.

Ok so I went to The Dressing Room last night and grabbed some stuff, the dress from Emery was my stand out fav, now some wont like the large label on the back, but with long hair or whatever you wont notice it, I kind of like the idea of people not having to inspect my crotch prim if they like the dress anyway lol. I wanted to show the dress different ways, and with the new Elikatira hair, as many pics as I could fit was all win. Me is a gorgeous style, similar to her own work for ETD in the past, but a bazillion times better crafted this time around. The hathair is actually part of the Seasons hunt, so be sure to look for that snowman.

The cinch cardigan by Mon Tissu is lush, and so beautiful to wear over skirts or pants, the fit is easy, and the options are great, even including a larger bust size for ease of fit. Leggings from Riddle and gorgeous Garter socks from Luck Inc helped with these fun looks, and woot for the Pow Pumps from Lelutka, love these MaryJane style shoes.

I am using one of the stock images by Cajsa Lilliehook from the Second Life Stock Images Group as my background, HERE .

War war is stupid

LeLu

Elikatira released new hair the other day, and the style is one that works as both a professional pulled back look, as well as an adorable youthful style.I really enjoy the colours of Elikatira’s range, there is something sun touched about this one, even though a brown it has the makings of a blonde.

I was having an 80’s flashback with the look today, tulle and military looks, what more can one fashionista over 30 ask for.The skirt is tres fab because of its solid  sculpted structure underneath, mixed with the whirly flexi tulle above. The jacket made me giggle, because I imagined what I would get medals for, I have in the past seen such things with their own giggle worthy info, but these are left sleek and shiny and up to your own imagination. I know Whimsy deserves a medal for trying to save all the Paper Couture shoes while they burned Tableau to the ground earlier this week, that was a hoot…you can see some pics of that on my flickr.

This is definitely a fun and frivolous outfit, and I am looking forward to more fun from LeLutka in the future, there is a definite slant towards mixed aesthetics coming from over there of late, yay for 2011.
