If I was going to make a stunning dress with cut out panels, I would call it Grazia too. Often you see named items, and you know who they were named after, this dress is spot on. The style is sophisticated, and alluring, and just everything that says Grazia (Horwitz). I love the style of this dress, and I was able to colour change my shoes by Empire to match the black and brown look.

The short hair, also an homage to Grazia, not by the creator but by me, as it is when she rocks out the shorter styles that I go YEAH! and this one is perfect. The style ensemble was wrapped up with these bracelets by Mandala, that have such a powerful look to them, they are called Yolo, which gives you even more attitude.

There has been an update to the Maitreya Lara body, and while taking her for a spin I decided to hit up a store that makes exclusively for the body. Thalia Heckroth the store and the person behind the label, has a lot of style and sophistication, so you are going to love the looks you can come up with there. The top and skirt today are a recent release, and I will be showing more throughout the week.

Mixing some old and new with some great accessories, and having a great look that can suit every day and into the evening. I love this skirt it is so pretty and feminine, great date night wear.

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.

At the moment, with the new and oh so delightful Mesh hitting the grid, there really needs to be more customer awareness happening. Read up on it, there is much on the wiki, check out blogs by people that provide info on the subject…and read information provided by the creators when supplied. Have an up to date viewer for one thing, and especially do not try and express your distaste for it, by using other viewers as the reason. Did you know that legally not one store has to provide customer service to you at all if you use a Third Party Viewer? Linden Labs themselves wont, so it is pretty much the kindness of creators that they have been so willing to do so in the past.

The worst part is that there are thousands out there that WANT to use the latest Mesh viewers and just can’t, so being rude and making big dramatic stances based on your inability to accept change is kind of sucky. My reason for this mini rant, is that I have seen some insane customer comments come up in the past week that have been a bit crazy. They are pure and simply people thinking they know better, and demanding more. I am so grateful I can use a Mesh Viewer, I am also grateful that stores do provide customer service for TPV’s because the LL viewer doesn’t stabilise for me right now. Yes it is going to be awful if not using one to see people running around with big blocks on instead of perfectly shaped creations. But I also remember when Sculpts came it was big spheres unrezzing for thousands too. I remember not being able to look at girls wearing sculpted hair because it looked like their brains were seeping out their eye sockets.

I still for the life of me cannot understand peoples dislike for V2 which is now V3. Yes it is different, a few buttons look different, but it is mostly the same, and nearly all the viewer creators have made such headway in trying to make it as similar to the old as they can. About the only thing that is still for many a major hassle is how notices come, and how items and IMs are shown. But that is more to do with retraining yourself to look down to the right not up to the right than anything else. You also need to train yourself to look down there more often…it is not so obvious when you get an IM, but it does still make a noise and there is an icon there with a balloon on it if there is an unread IM. Anyway, try it for more than five minutes…nearly everyone I ever hear that says they wont, has never used it since it was released, and/or wont give it more than five minutes. The benefits to your SL far outweigh the negatives, and if you CAN use it,  then you kind of owe it to those that can’t to stop being sucky lol.

Now about these boots. Yes they are the NEW MESH boots from LeLutka, and they are magnificent. For one thing, the detailing is fantastic, and all the added features make them such an incredible bargain. Not only do you get the boot in whichever colour or colours you choose, but also the HUD that allows for changes to the laces, rivets and soles. With some of the colours the change in accents is incredible. The boots are three prims, they are not rigged to the skeleton so they can be resized using the HUD also. It is only rigged items in Mesh that are unable to be resized, because they are technically locked to the joints. So the work that is able to be achieved on them is awesome, and in many cases you are going to see work you wouldn’t have ever seen if we only had sculpts, because the creator either wouldn’t do that kind of intense detailing, or it just was not within the realms of prim limits etc. Also texturing on Mesh is so much easier than Sculpts so the newness is going to keep on getting even better.

The Ren boots have a mix of looks. First off I looked at them as Victorian riding boots, then they had a real combat kind of thing going on – I LOVE THE OLIVE – all in all they are so versatile to wear. First off I had to go with that first thought, the Victorian look, so I pulled apart a gown from LeLutka – I rezzed the skirt then in edit mode I checked Edit Linked Parts and clicked all the pieces at the front. Once they were all selected I went to build menu and unlinked. Then once unlinked I selected them again and deleted. Taking the skirt back I wear it and voila a short fronted gown. The bolero is from Verve which is previously Swansong, so any type of shrug/bolero could look very cool. Then to finish it all off I wore the collar that you didn’t get a proper look at the other day from Royal Blue.

The second look combines one of the very cool Zaara denim skirts, with the linen shirt from COCO, this shirt comes in other colours, but I loved the white and very crinkly look of it. The combat look didn’t get as military as I would have liked, but combining the RB Tank from Maitreya and the delish leather cap with the SoHo shorts and Ren boots was enough for me to want to stay that way for the day.

I am wearing the NEW Curio skin Jewel. Looks like Curio has added new tones to her selection. I am wearing the honey tone, which comes in the gold tones collection. The other tones are rose tones, so make sure you try all the new tones available. The make ups as usual are just beautiful and as usual come in the two of each make up choice we are used to.

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.

New hair, New hair, such a fun way to start any day…reminder that Hair Fair is coming July 2nd to 15th so stay tuned for more info on that.

The five beautiful styles of hair I am wearing today are the latest from LeLutka, they are such different and yet believable styles, that you would think one could become another with the help of some good product. The other exciting thing about them though is that they have ROOTS! darker texturing done at the top of the hair to show a more natural look, you can see it in the demos, and it is divine.

I had some fun styling the looks to go with the hair, a little bit of country, my church going school marm look which had me in fits and terrorising Whimsy and Newdoll, my girl on the go look, followed up with night time fun and end of weekend beach look. I love having fun this way, it is what makes Second Life Fashion so incredible, and blogging so awesome.

Three of the backgrounds came from the Second Life Stock Images Group, I am so addicted to using them now and making more, you should definitely try it.

I used one of my own backgrounds again, submitted to the Second Life Stock Images Group on flickr, I feel like one of those TV Chefs that pulls out a plate of scones ‘I prepared earlier”. Kind of nifty actually having the backgrounds all at the ready, and so exciting when you see people using them for ads and stuff.

The other day Aisling was taking pics with us at The Deck in our VR Studio’s, we are so cute, we all have our stands tinted different colours so we know at a glance who’s are who’s, so when we want a change of poses we swap. So anyway we were gasbagging about whatever in skype and Aisling mentioned hair and UrfUrf, a hair store I am ashamed to say I knew nothing about. So off we went and bam, bought out most of the store. One of the styles I am sporting from them is Clarissa, I love this style, it is the everyday all day do you can’t live without. The textures are all mixed up over there as I think they are changing how they do their hair packs, but well worth the visit, I have already been back since and bought their newest in only three days lol.

The other hair I am wearing is created of course by Maitreya, the winner of this years Glance Awards for Hair and Shoes, so proud of Beau and Onyx for being so awesome, and also on letting me embarrass myself and I am sure them by losing voice during the event and doing a backflip on the stage because I was so upset on letting them and everyone else down. But the hair ROCKS!.

My look today is totally rich girl gets a pony, snickers, seriously I love this look, thanks to the new release by Mon Tissu of this gorgeous Rockaby Blazer, Infinity Scarf and Cozy Tee, bringing it all into gear with the recent boots from Royal Blue and the not so new Jodhpurs from Prelude.

Still in the last week of Vanity Universe’s Skin Fair and the skin I am wearing is Bella from Xplosion. The skin comes in five different tones, each tone with 8 make ups, eyebrow and hair base options, lashes and stuff I wont mention because it is evil and there are six of them lol. Bella has an incredible cleavage, like WOWZA I thought I had accidently slipped on my slider by another 20 or something, but nope all skin. Try the demos for sure at the fair, they are really beautiful and make sure you wear a nice cleavage baring top.

I am showing off the tones in the new Dolly Set by Miseria, I love when Miseria releases, the items are always so random and divine, the detailing on this set is gorgeous, look at those cute and still sexy little buttons on the sides of the body suit and gloves. You could totally add a gown skirt and have an incredible evening look. You can see I have added the lovely jewelry set by Eclectica called Flounce in Champagne, lots of pieces to the set, and you can wear all or some depending on your mood. This would be a beautiful set for someone special that adores formal wear.
