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.

On the Boardwalk

LaViere

I love a day of nautical looks, the red white and blue look is always so much fun.

LaViere is a new store with a not so new owner. Azure Elictricteeth is the designer of the familiar brand Tee*fy and she has branched out into a more upscale brand LaViere. Full of bright colours and incredible prints. I am starting off with the halter top and loose capris, and you can see they are just wonderful together or on their own as staples for your wardrobe.Make sure you go outside when you visit LaViere as the new location and build is just lovely, and I actually wish I had taken some shots of it for this post, but alas didn’t think of it until afterwards, I will go back another time though for sure, her build is just lovely.

Actually, wait a moment or ten, I am going to go now, it is just too nice not to share.

Ok I am back, I got some nice pics of the location lol. So anyway, as I was saying it is a beautiful build and some really gorgeous items are coming out of Azures fingertips.

Perfect for my nautical look is the wonderful Andrea hat/hair by Amacci, she has recently released a few spring to summery looks like this, and I especially love this upturned large brim one.

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.

19.99 a minute

wat

I asked Whimsy tonight, “What do you think we are missing from our blogs” her response “paid Subscribers, 19.99 a minute’ that girl is going to kill me one day. Seriously within minutes every day spent with her I end up choking with laughter, that she then panics because she doesn’t know how to dial 911 for Australia. I keep telling her its 000 and she just laughs at me. Right now she is looking up cheap flights in the UK…why? God only knows, she is just fixated on the fact that they have them lol.

DeLa recently released the Letti cowl neck sweater dress, and while as a dress this is gorgeous, it is killer as a seperate as well. So mixing the upper or lower portions with other pieces, I had a great time. So much of course that I ended it in the blue/choc combo because it is so cute I don’t want to change. I am wearing it in the beige as is, then with the pinkupper only with the new ripped low rise jeans from Nyte n Day, a recent release that are just great. The lower part, which really works well even with a jacket layer above, just a small pull down on the skirt prim, I am wearing with the GORGEOUS Season Sweaters from Fri.day, first with the belt that comes with the dress, and then secondly with the pashmina belt from Veschi that is at The Dressing Room blue for a short time.

The collar on the season sweaters is just amazing, so pretty, and I would love to see this done as a dress, such a beautiful style, that needs more options. Lucky me that the Elsa boots from Surf Co have such similar contrast colour options as the sweaters, so they are a must with these. With all of the pics I am wearing hair by LoQ…relatively new to hair in the past year, such a great release at Hair Fair with the lace cloche’s, these newer styles are all win. The Brucella (black) is actually a special in colour packs on Marketplace for only 50L a pack, a steal, and if you join her subscribo you get another style free as well.

I am wearing Eva the new Glam Affair skin, but more on that soon :)

Not so Bad is Oh so Good

NSB 1

NsB2

Now I could pretend that these are my two homes, that I come home to each night. But alas mine always end up with unpacked boxes everywhere and my VR Posestands. I did however decorate them how I would love to live in them, even if for only a day or so before they end up messy.

In the past the Not so Bad homes I have shown have had a very beautiful ethnicity to them, so it was surprising to me to see their two most recent releases in more of a modern range. The first and most recent is the BOW Apartment skybox, this gem is perfect for the home office style person. Stunning woodwork, beautiful textures and enough space to do all you would need to do in such an environment…it is just on the right side of cozy. My favourite features are the beamed ceiling below the loft upstairs, and the ability to colour your feature wall with the click of the control panel.

Most of the accessories and furniture are Not so Bad pieces, from other sets, but with the addition of some from Lisp Bazaar – a store I could take everything home from given the chance – and the adorable pumpkins on the shelf and in the corner in PINK and white, are from W.Winx, who has created the most beautiful pumpkin patches for people to celebrate Autumn and Halloween.

The Second House is the Modern House, and this one is HUGE, only one bedroom which is bizarre with this size house, but wow what a layout. Once I did the sitting room and other areas I did end up with a large space in the middle of the living area, not really feeling it as a dining room, so I think maybe another rug or two and possibly some kind of art piece could work, or possibly even something in the way of a room divider may make it less roomy and more homey.

My favourite space was the walk through in the centre, an open roof area, that has a tranquility all it’s own, adding some deck chairs and a bit of the sexy Codebastard Redgrave art on the wall, I could spend hours watching the water in here. The use of plants, water and bamboo, are a big win for me, and I just love the driftwood accents. The kitchen and bathroom items are all part of the modern furniture sets, which are seperate, as is all the furniture, and this time some art from Scribble’s gallery over the fireplace. By the time I did the decorating and what not, the Modern house came in at around 800+ prims, which is a lot, but for the size of the house, you would have that many and more, so definitely take the time to look around both builds and all the other incredible ones at Not so Bad, you will definitely be inspired for new home love.

The clothing I am wearing first off pants wise are from LeLutka, these are Fallen and Cargo and both stunning. The sculpts are great and the overall styling is just awesome. I could wear these every day with ease and there are even tartan ones in the fallen, so if ever called on for a round on the course, these are the pants to have. Mixing it up with Aoharu’s Military jacket over the Eclectic Apparels Calypso bra, must haves for sure, and then topping it off with the latest hat hair from The Strand, and you all know I love my hat hair wooohooo.

It’s a healthy self interest

Lingerie Shoot

Lingerie 3

I have it on good authority, that to self love is to share the best of oneself with oneself, how much better than that can it get? When spending the evening swanning around in lingerie, you really get to enjoy the freedom that is Second Life. Both Newdolly and I went to visit Mel as he was rebuilding his store, and to his surprise we were both in lingerie…we decided to let him think that yes as all men predict, women do spend theiir time frolicing around in the knickers and gently nudging each other with pillows of the soft and fluffy variety – and no Mel is not that silly, but it was a good giggle for 2.3 seconds.

Today is Sunday, and on Sunday we will be having the opening as far as I know, of the Luxuria department of 5th & Oxford. What is Luxuria you ask? if you do not know then you best get on over there and see for yourself, or you can keep reading. Luxuria is the Lingerie department, that Roslin Petion has been working her delectable buns off on. Lingerie is something that she creates for not only the beautiful woman within, but for the manly man to admire and delight in. This lingerie is not just sexy layers to wear under clothes, but the true starting point of all that is woman.

It caresses, it entices and it truly intrigues, it is soft and beautiful and enough to make you fall in love with yourself first, and let the man come in second…and if your man knows whats good for him, he will always come second.

Gigglefits, I so want to leave it on that note, but lots more to talk about. The skins I am wearing are just gorgeous. The London skins come in lovely tones and divine make ups, the mouth is just hot hot hot. Glossy lips that have a definite petulant pout that we all find sexy as hell. I really love the shading on the skins the bum is great, especially for lingerie, and it is all about the DEMO DEMO DEMOs so be sure to grab lots. With Cupcakes though there are so many superb skins there, that if this one doesn’t grab you maybe others will, so plan to spend some time there.

New hair New Hair NEW HAIIIIIRRRRRR. Wow wasn’t today crazy with releases. Maitreya released some beautiful updo styles, and I am wearing one of them on the left, with a texture change headband, it is a lovely ballerina looking style, that will get so much wear this season.

Buy it all and have a marvelous weekend, I am off to get Newdolly some lashes like I wear, full prim no alpha, all win.
