Chalice's Challenge

When I first saw Chalice’s Challenge I thought hmmm…I do not possess any wedding dresses, so no temptation there, but I do possess quite a few white dresses and numerous of other colours….what do I choice? Not the obvious one I did wear…lol.

Then my recent purchase of the My Precious’s Faith gown sprang to mind. Its quite traditional, but short so nicely contemporary. Perfect for a beach wedding, with its lace and train. I teamed it up with L+R+W Fairy white shoes with the flower accessories, Tukinowaguma hair and Alienbear. My usual Fleur skin and Miriel eyes were a certain. The only thing I lacked were the flowers. I went back to the shop I bought my original bouquet from and purchased a simple hand held bunch of white lilies.

My second bridal look I wanted to reflect the theatrical in me. I toyed with the idea of a big skirted back gown but thought too obvious. Then I remembered Nicky Ree’s Le Fleur Gown in red, with all the accompanying paraphernalia. The Le Fleur skin by Fleur and the Le Fleur jewellery set by Alienbear. At this point I had to go Baroque and dug out Curl Up and Dyes Antoinette hair in black, tinting the hair ribbons dark red. I used my original bouquet with the deep red roses.

This was a fun challenge…thank you Chalice!

Chalice's Challenge

I started this challenge given to us by Chalice Carling, by looking for separates, but had a shortage of suitable skirts. So, since I own absolutely zero wedding dresses [outlawed from the challenge anyway], I looked through my Last Call outfits for something appropriate and found 2.

The first is Kerry, one of my earliest full-price Last Call purchases. While it comes with a necklace, I opted for the paper couture Sparkling Spheres set from their 2010 collection. Shoes are ETD's D'Orsay stilettos in Nude, hair is Cameron in Copper from Truth and skin is PXL Creations July NAT SpringWine MEB. I think this would be suitable for an afternoon church wedding.

This dress would be for a beach wedding I think, perhaps with a stole that I don't own. Sofia is the dress, also from Last Call. My necklace is Poseidon in Rose from (luc) Fashion Jewelry. Everything else remains the same. I wish I could have met the challenge more creatively, but this is what my inventory had. And getting married in Last Call would be far from shabby.

Tarty Sam

Yup I'm a tart, thanks to hyasynth Tiramisu's new Kurai Tart. It shares the design elements of the original Kurai Suit, but adds a skimpy, lacy, dare I say "tarty" skirt, which I am wearing in Brass. It includes the wonderful arm-warmers. Be sure to look at the intricate lace on the edges. And under is a pair of even skimpier, yet nicely detailed panties. This is an exceptional outfit for any pixel tart.

Tussi from Mimikri

I have to be honest and say that, after an early fascination with the creations from Mimikri, I became less interested. But with Tussi I'm back:) What I love the most is the semi sheer system skirt with the prim overlay. There are three plays on "diamond" here, system, prim diamond shapes reflecting the system skirt and then the actual "diamonds." It comes in many colors, but I chose Sand as I think it reveal some of the subtleties of the design.

Other items worn:
Fishnets in Pearl from *blowpop*
Heel Strap Platforms in Linen from ETD
PXL Creations July NAT SpringRose MEB
Sparkling Spheres Stud earrings from Paper Couture
The Knife in Caramel from Tiny Bird
Poses are from Reel Expression

Yes, Another Valentines Post

Quickie as it's close to my bedtime…

Both skin and lingerie are exceptional.

Lingerie is the, as always, wonderfully designed and textured Nicky Ree creation, the Ace Lingerie. Available in a wide range of colours but for group members this pink version is 1L$ for the whole of February. Plus, if you also have Nicky as a ‘picks’ in your profile then the olive colour is free as long as you wear the group tag.
The skin…what can I say? A Valentines freebie for group members of PXL Creations, now L$250 to join but worth every Linden. The make up is stunning yet understated, the face being elegant but with that touch of edginess with the lined lipstick. To top it all off the most wonderful white tattoos swirl and dance over the body and face. Hart has done himself proud. Oh! And the skin comes with the cutest wings ever plus, poses, a bow and a quiver of arrows…lol.

The rest you know .

Happy Valentines Day!

MichaMi's Rhia

In the past week I have been wearing a dress that I am finding it hard to take off my pixels…MichaMi’s Rhia dress.

Its simple yet classic…sporty, elegant and contemporary. The darker silhouette panel on either side of this dress is an inspiration, the design to die for. The dress itself comes with either a sculpty skirt or a system skirt, either work perfectly well. In the picture, I am sporting the system skirt on the cream version and the others are sculpties. It really doesn’t matter which you prefer they both work.

The hair I admit to buying especially for Rhia. I wanted something ‘sporty’ but chic too. Truth’s Audrey fitted the bill perfectly with its messy side pony tail sweeping over the shoulder.

The skin I wanted fresh and simple, a natural look…Fleur Allure Lounge 1 was just the ticket. This and Miriels Platinum eyes and Maitreyas Verve pumps all went to make my look complete…no matter what colour dress I was wearing.

I should wear something else really…lol…but even if I do I know I will keep going back to it. It’s become a fast favourite.

In Praise of Fences

The lines of Robert Frost in "Mending Wall" came to mind as I was taking these pictures on Grazia's new sim. The Fence, from Glitterati, comes with 10 built in poses. The landscaping is courtesy of my SL sister, Grazia Horwitz. I am wearing the Beetlebones Dippin dots blossom dress in cloudy skies, Tint Bird's The Knife in Caramel and L.Fauna Skins {Lapine . Pale 2} [Mystic-FR], and Zaara's Tarika Claw earrings in Gold.

Snow Dream

I wish I had more time to blog this item…but I don’t…so sorry if I don’t do it justice.
Early last week Nicky Ree released a new lingerie set, Snow Dream. It’s both sexy and classic all in one go, the perfect bridal night wear.

There are at least 5 ways to wear this lingerie, from bra and knickers through to long babydoll and everything in-between. Nicky has provided choice by including many layers and many attachments to chose from.

Again, her textures are sublime, with hand drawn textiles, thoughtful design and details, e.g. the beautiful garter clasps to hold your stockings in place, that really make this lingerie special.

For either a quiet night in or a special occasion the Snow Dream Lingerie is perfect for any occasion.
