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.

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.

I have worn this dress all night and had so many compliments. We have had an awesome week of just hanging out with friends, that and boob and bum bouncing of course because the physics thing is just still too funna.

The dress is Dolly Disco by Ivalde, and it is all disco and more, the slinky and seductive lines of this dress are perfect, a system skirt lover like myself is in heaven. I went with some great heels from Elikatira to help with the dancing till dawn, the sturdy heel of these shoes is a definite plus, not only for dancing, but they have that sexy librarian thing going on as well.

I am wearing the new Alice skin from YS & YS, such beautiful make ups as usual, the 14 different skins come with so many tattoo layer options, lashes, breasts, brow colours and freckles, as well sold seperately you can buy even more lipsticks. The eyeshadows and liners on these skins are just fab, so having more lippy options is awesome…demo demo demo

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.

Ok before I get to the post some IMPORTANT dates you have to mark on your calenders.

Pure Juice – March 5th – 26th

Fashion For Life – March 12th – 22nd

Pose Fair – April 1st – 15th

Culture Shock – May 1st – May 22nd

Shoe Fair – May 14th – 27th

Hair Fair – July 2nd – 15th

There are so many events coming up, and I know this isn’t all of them, but they are the ones I know about, so be sure to make room for them in your inventory….

The play hairstyle from Elikatira is amazing, the fit is perfection, I have not edited one prim. I would love to see some more styles based off this one, it is so delightful. Now I may not have edited any prims on the hair, but I sure did on the Secret Boots. Thanks to the boots being mod, and this is something I did discuss with Elikatira in the past the moment I saw the boots released, but I couldn’t contain myself any longer.

I removed the foot portion of the boots, and then wore them over the top of her move pumps. I love this look and some stretching and moving etc made them perfectly how I imagined them in my mind…and because I love them lots I had to wear them with my adorably sexy kini from Cynful to show off the body of the great new skin by YS & YS.

This is Susan a beautiful skin as usual by YS & YS, the make ups on this skin are really subtle but enough to go from day to night. There are 14 in total as well as brows, hair bases and cleavage options on tats, also freckles and eyelashes, all tat layers, so if you have a 2.5 viewer you can wear them all at once if needed.

I already had on the top of an outfit from The Secret Store, and was in the middle of modifying that too when the Diigii High Waist skirts from Luck Inc made more sense. The thin white belt part of the skirt added that nice graduation between top and bottom. There are two versions of this skirt and in perfect Luck Inc fashion this is the long version LOL.

Using one of my own background pics from Second Life Stock Images Group, so thanks to me for having the foresight to need this a few weeks ago.

Right now I am listening to the playlist of Cynneh of Cynful clothing on her YouTube, I only discovered today you can finally share those, so yay, it is a wonderful mix you can listen too from HERE

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 .
