WONDERFUL new poses from my SL sis, Grazia Horwitz. Some of these are her very best I think. They are very relaxed, yet also elegant. Bien fait sis!

I particularly like the crossed hands on the left, so hard to do and have look natural. My outfit is from Mimikri's new outlet store. I've always wanted more of these, and at these prices, I grabbed a WHOLE BUNCH.

Out of the Dark (Mouse)

One of my favorite jewelers has been having a LOT of trouble with the new SL search, which means that people can't find her classified ads that she has paid for when they search. So several of us who both love and admire Mouse Ministrobell and her Dark Mouse store want you to have a chance to see her beautiful creations. Oh and everything I am showing is on deep sale in her discount store on Taber. Sets for L$50 which often include bracelets and rings as well as earrings and necklaces with 2 attachment points. Fatpacks for L$100, which give you one set free. [FYI I paid for every item in this post.]

Mouse makes the premier vintage jewelry sets on the grid. The attention to period detail is delicious. I mean how long has it been since you wore screwback earrings? Her work is muted, occasionally tarnished as befits a vintage item, but NEVER dull or invisible. So without further ado, my attempt to bring Mouse out of the Dark.

I suddenly realised that I had bought quite a few bodysuits of late, so thought I’d share some of the more interesting ones with you all.

The first is from Maitreya and is wonderfully textured and designed. A corseted bust falls into soft folds of the body and has pretty thigh ruffles to make it girly and slightly retro. Truly beautiful.

The second is from O! It is a simple asymmetric body suit with a floral detail over the shoulder strap. This bodysuit is both elegant and edgy.

The third is the one I fell in love with the moment I put it on. From Pig it has no attachments and is totally system. However, clever design and wonderful textures makes this bodysuit work. Ruffles front and back give this retro piece its olde worlde feel.

The final one is the ultra contemporary bodysuit from Source. Superb design and textures, with clever, well made attachments makes this such a fun piece of clothing. Very Madonna/ Lady Gaga with its cut out, ribbed panels and seriously big, nail edged shoulder pads, held together with a chain at the back. It made me feel very Flash Gordon.

Boom Bikinis

OK, so I have seen sooo many of you beautiful avis wearing and promoting the Boom bikinis that my twisted thinking went like this….you have too many bikinis already, you don’t need anymore. Then I weakened and teleported over to Boom. This shopping trip ended up being a bikini fest, I had to limit myself. I think I need help…lol.

Anyway, I did limit myself to 4 colours but being the indecisive avi that I am I bought the full packs. I am loving each bikini, whether string, raise, toushie or boyshorts and whether string or halter tops. The patterns are OH SO Pretty, the colour jewel like in their attractiveness and their designs wonderful. Well made with attention to detail, e.g. there are separate attachments for ‘ties’ for both top and bottoms depending on whether you go string or bigger. A little tweaking here and there and I was one seriously happy bunny.

On the Edge

sachi Vixen of Adam n Eve is known for her sexy [and tasteful] designs, so when she dropped me Edge I expected something special. And I was not disappointed. This design looks very modest. Lots of coverage, high neckline... that is until you look at the lace at the top...

The textures are sleek and nicely shaded. The dress comes with 2 skirts, one a scrap of a mini, the other a small flexi skirt. In all pictures I am wearing skins, also from Adam n Eve. For the black and the green I chose Angel Cariad in Tone 2, alas discontinued. With the purple version I am wearing an unreleased skin from sachi. My shoes [and I do mean MY], the Samara heels, one of the few designs to survive the recent retirement sale at Adam n Eve. They go perfectly with the new dress. Hair in all three photos is booN RRW202 in Sandy, currently available at The Dressing Room.

It is really only with the last picture and the darker skin tone that you can see Edge's naughtiness... oh my :)

Go take a look at Edge and the other new goodies and be sure to enjoy the new build conjured up by sachi & Damen. It is very smart and modern.

A hairy issue

Here's what. I've hardly been around for the past few months, due to nothing in particular, and to everything in general. I checked, and my last blog post dates back to December'09, for the Footwear Expo, which I couldn't miss for the life of me. And now, an event of similar proportions has happened (besides Sam hunting me with ideas for a blog post every time I log on). Anyway, the event. Sales. Sales all over the place. Every time I checked my offline group notices I read about a new one, and time was running against me. So what's a girl to do? Of course, go shopping. That is what I did. Compulsively. Not until I dropped, but until my L$ balance did... so low, I couldn't see it any more. What a weakling. But at least I got these pretties:

Nice, aren't they? Now, I must make a confession. The first place I hit was the Hair department at, because if I'm not mistaken, the sale ends today. I hadn't bought anything for so long that I went overboard. It was like going to the kitchen to get a cookie and finishing up the whole packet. So hair is all I bought. Of course, I cheat myself into thinking that this way I'm stocked for the whole of 2010. But the sheer thought haunts me: what if Truth holds a sale, too?

Anyways, from left to right, top to bottom: Brande 2, Miley, Carrie, Amelia, Melanie 2, Jasmine 2, Marie (without and with hair flower), Joanna 2, Mandy 2, Lucy 2 and Victoria 2. All shown in my favourite, Jealous Red. Other items in the picture are Tuli's Gina skin (The Dressing Room special), the discontinued Miriel's Forest green eyes and Glamour lashes,
Tiny Bird's Painted Bird Dress (50L Fridays) and poses by /Geez/ (photosphere courtesy of Samara Barzane).

Two ways with Lila

For the whole of June 5th & Oxford have out an exclusive colour of their new underwear at Copley Square.

Lila in peach is again testament to the creative perfection of Roslin and CJ. A satin slip with garters, beautifully crafted and textured. Looks so soft that you could touch it. Matching knickers and two shades of stockings complete this retro set. Again, choice and variation in the fact that loads of layers are available to wear.

Here are 2 ways of wearing this wonderful lingerie…

In the top picture I decided to go very retro. I am wearing the matching stockings to keep it simple. Again PXL Creations Grace skin graces my avatar, the hair is from JetDoll and includes the flower.

In the bottom picture my good friend Samara went more contemporary. She wore the contrasting stockings paired with Kitty Lair’s Vintage Heels in gold. Her skin is from La Sylphide and hair from Tiny Bird. Simple jewellery from Alienbear. A modern twist to this classic underwear.

How will you wear yours?

South Pacific in Bloem

OK, so, after Nicky Ree dropped the Nadia Liquid Swim Set on me, a week later she dropped the Bloem Swimming Costume and Dress Collection on me.

It was love at first sight. The all-in-one swim suit is traditional in cut but stands the test of time. This along with Nickys beautiful hand drawn textures and the delicate colours make for a classic bathing costume. Once I had added Artillieri’s orchid hair flower I was all ready to star in South Pacific.

As usual with Nickys clothes, the costume does not come alone. Included are both a simple, above knee, system skirt ( for those trips into town) and a flippy prim skirt for floating along the beach with. Both skirts are well made and merge wonderfully with the top.

I chose the healthy natural PXL Creations Grace skin again, along with Cakes short, curly Berlin hair. Slinks tiptoe barefeet once again grace my avatar, I seriously can’t take them off.

I have been roaming inworld in this look for most of the time in the past week, so I thought I would share it with you all.

Slipping into Liquid Gold

Nicky Ree has taken the start of summer with a bang. She has re released the Nadia swimsuit sets in new textures. In this blog I am wearing the Nadia Liquid Swimsuit in Orange. The colour and sheen on this set are hot, hot, hot. The design is just as fabulous, a swim suit with pretentions of being a bikini. It comes with a prim skirt so it can double as a beach party dress. A wonderfully versatile piece of beachwear, guaranteed to set pulses racing.

The Nadia Liquid Set in red is currently on a dollerbie offer to group members in the beachwear section of the main store. This offer lasts until the 7th June…so hurry to grab this bargain before it goes.

I decided a darker skin tone would show off this wonderful costume better than pale so I went with PXL Creations Efe skin. I wanted the hair to reflect the skin but be contemporary and beachy; dD Niobe fit this bill. It has short dreads tied into a multitude of bunches, the ties being modify so you can mach your outfit. Being on the beach again I chose Slinks barefeet again, I cannot take them off my pixels at the moment.

We're alaMood!

When Jori dropped her Kalnera set made especially for the ongoing Mental Health Awareness Fair I was already wearing 5th & Oxford's Seaside Sweetie shorts and halter. When I saw the beautiful blues in Kalnera I changed into the striped halter in pink and the shorts in turquoise. Tiny Bird's Postcards from Italy showed off the earrings nicely and the Boardwalkers from Sand Shack in Pelican Blue finished the look.

The entire Kalnera Collections will be available at alaMood tomorrow.

I'm a "Seaside Sweetie"

Roslin Petion's "Seaside Sweetie" collection for 5th & Oxford comes in shorts and a lovely system skirt as well as two styles of halters. I've chosen to wear the Shorts in Black and the Halter in Red & White Stripes. I might have chosen the dark blue shorts, but I wanted to show off my new (no) Mercy heels from Orange Creations in Red. (They all have black woven straps).

The textures on the Seaside items are nicely detailed. I particularly like the white trim on the V-neck front for the halter and the worn look for the shorts. I'm not sure have the shoes matched right yet to my Claire skin from La Sylphide, but it shouldn't be hard to refine it for my usual PXL Creations skins. It took me a while to buy the shoes as I just think Maitreya has it right, but with their lower prices Orange Creation has shown (some) Mercy:)

5th & Oxford dropped me the prelease of their new tops, skirts and shorts. I was so delighted when I opened up the folders; pretty halter necks, plain and striped, a high waisted pencil skirt and high waisted, buttoned shorts. Perfect for summer.

All the designs are classic, the details intrinsic and the textures wonderful. For the beach or a day shopping these pieces are perfect, as you can mix and match the colours and clothes to stay cool and fresh. Slightly retro in feel but contemporary too.

I chose to wear the shorts and matching stripy halter in chocolate and thought sunshine and beach. So a tanned skin was the choice…5th & Oxfords Brooke Kitty 1 skin in tan came to mind. Lovely tanned, smooth skin with nude lips and just a pale flash of eye make up…perfect for the sunkissed, natural beauty look.

Next I thought tanned…blonde. I chose's Anna to compliment the simple look I was after.

When considering shoes I ended up back in Slinks barefeet prim feet tinted to match my skin.
To shoot I went to Artilleries main store and went to their beach and jetty…perfect.
