52 Teal

Again I'm recycling, this time to say how much I miss the designer, Samsara Nishi. For TEAL here is her Escaping from Pirates dress made for RFL 2009. Here's a link to the original post.

Gold Ballet

Just a quick one as I am bit late posting this.

The Anti-V fair tempted me with one more purchase the other week. House of Hucci’s 24 Karat ‘dress’. A wonderfully simple, boned, black bodysuit with gold cups sits atop a golden skirt that lies open front and back. The textures are superb and the whole thing makes me think of burlesque meets ballet.

I teamed it with N-Core shoes, Truth hair, Miriel eyes and PXL skin.

52 RED

Boy am I behind. Color my face RED. I've known all week that I was blogging this outfit that I had taken earlier because it is echt-RED. But did that help nooooooooo... So here RED is. FINALLY.

I found the this outfit while" inspecting" an idling avatar at The Dressing Room Blue and ended up in two wonderful Japanese shops. I didn't like the blouse that came with the Kuri Style suit so I substituted this one from the second shop, **M+M**. The feathered bits are part of the suit. Boots are GOS Slouchy in Red. I'm wearing sachi's Taylor skin, which I'm still having trouble getting off my pixels, although Laurel is close behind.

Suit: kuri style
blouse: **M+M**

Nicky Ree’s latest releases are so, so pretty and stunning and sexy…lol. (read breathless)Both a gown and lingerie sets have been released, the DNR Katharina Gown and the DNR Katharina Lingerie Chemis.

The gown, including retro style corset lingerie, is a beautiful, tulip, spaghetti string top, with flower embroidery bust, sitting atop an open fronted, net skirt, also embroidered with flowers, with train. The whole dress screams class and sexy.

The chemise lingerie follows the same pattern as the gown but this time a simple, sheer body lies beneath the empire style skirt. When these components are combined a luxurious babydoll nightie appears.

Astounding design and hand drawn textures yet again show off Nickys talent for producing high quality clothes which have style and sex appeal.

At the moment, until the 28th February, both the DNR Katharina Gown and DNR Katharina Lingerie Chemis in black are on group discount. If you are a goup memner then hop over to the main store and take advantage of these offers.

52 Week Colour Challenge...Teal

Teal…yes, I do have a smattering of teal in my inventory and I knew which outfit I wanted to blog as soon as I saw this weeks colour.

The Dangerous Gown by nonna hedges was one of the first formals I bought inworld. I could have spent my life savings in nonna’s shop and still could. This gown has stood the test of time and graphics cards. The design simple and elegant, yet sexy…dangerous with lace and satin. The textures of which are astounding.

I teamed it with mules and jewellery from the same age and shop…Blue Lagoon Shoes by Cybele Pontoppidan and Nonna’s Art Neuveau Orchid Set in platinum.

The skin is my usual choice of PXL Creations but this time it’s Harts latest release Linda G3, pale. I think this skin is so pretty and makes my avi look so young…lol.

Hart has released a set of eye make up tattoos to go with this set of skins. They are all very well done, some subtle, some not so. I havent shown it here as the viewer I used didnt support more than 1 tattoo (lesson learnt).

Old favourites of Truth and Miriel were chosen for hair and eyes.

Good Customer Care

Last week I was perusing the Anti-V ‘fair’ when I spied a pair of wedged boots that I instantly fell in love with. Peqe G Wedge’s were soon mine…or maybe not.

I had a really blonde moment…I went to ‘OK’ the payment acknowledge box but just as I pressed it it was replaced by the ‘accept, decline or ignore’ box. Guess which one I pressed. I was gutted. So, the first thing I did was document everything onto a notecard and pass it to Peqe, aka Inex Hax.

Now, as Peqe was offline I thought I would have to wait a fair time for a response. Wrong! This is customer care at its best. She replied and sent me the wedges I had declined within the hour. I just want to say again, Thank you Peqe for the swift response and the wedges. I hope you like my blog attempt…lol.

I wanted the wedges to shine so kept the whole shoot dark including using Glam Affairs Delia Bodysuit and the Jadis, natural- DAMA skin. My hair was an edgy cut from eha, eyes and eyelashes my usual.

One edgy look later…lol.

52 Week Colour Challenge...Red

Red…another good colour for me. This time I thought I’d take a look in my cocktail dress folder.

The dress I chose for this weeks challenge is the Parisian Beaded Dress from Gisaci. A babydoll style dress with a beaded, tulip, spaghetti strapped top and flouncy net skirt falling from below the bust. Beautiful details in both the top and skirt textures give for a truly classic cocktail dress. This is a dress I never forget I have.

To go with it I am wearing PXL skin, Truth hair and Miriel eyes. Details are listed below.

All Eyes on Rosalie:)

This could also be 52 Black 2 ;) In any case sachi Vixen has released a new, very lovely goth skin named Rosalie. [R] Just one tone, but many lip colors and then the eye makeup tattoos. I'm wearing "Mystic." There is a design for everyone, but this one just seemed to suit Sam. This is a skin and eye makeup combination that you should try for yourself. The skin shading is very elegant, yet definite. And the tone responds well to different lighting, going from the palest goth you could want to a slightly creamy look, which is showing in these pictures.

Other Details:
Earrings: paper couture
Dress: Sascha Designs
Poses: !BANG
Hair: Tiny Bird Soma in Honeycomb

52 Black

I know I'm late. So cope;) Thanks again to Luna Jubilee for starting the 52 week challenge.

So much black, so hard to choose, In the end I went for sachi's new Chiandra dress in black for Adam and Eve. The textures are much more detailed that the picture shows and the dress itself is modest and elegant. My skin is a beta of sachi's new Rosalie "goth" skin [R], which has a beautiful arty feel to it.

Jools are from the talented pixel fingers of Jori Watler of MOOD. The set is called Fallen Tears and I'm wearing it in gold. [R] My hair is Tiny Bird's Soma in butterfinger I think. With the pale skin and the black dress I thought a lighter color might work--and I think it does. Poses are from !BANG.

On to RED.

52 Week Colour Challenge...Black

Black…my fav colour. This week it was a case of I don’t know what to wear as I have so many black clothes.

As I have been away from home for over a week I do realise this week is late and, as I am for an easy life, I decided to blog an outfit I wore to a fancy dress event a few weeks ago. It’s black, it’s convenient (have outfit folder with it in) and it’s a bit different.

I am blogging a Catwoman costume. Now, not the character/avi herself but Fury as Catwoman…it is me under the mask…lol. Am going to let the photo and the styling tell all. Sorry about the poster effect…I went a little mad on my first use of PS since I returned.

Baroque me Baby

I was at work last week, yes…sorry; I have been away for a bit, when Nicky came instore to rearrange the displays in order to put out a new release, the DNR Mona Baroque Gown & Lingerie Collection. She was wearing the new release and looked stunning in it. I was asked to pick a colour so that I could model it instore; I went for gold.

There are many pieces in this collection and it can be worn from basic undies set, a more elaborate underwear set, a simple corset ballgown through to a full blown Baroque gown. Even with these options there are more than one top and skirt choice. An astounding piece of clothing that shows off Nickys skills beautifully. Hand drawn textures and precision design make for a spectacular collection.

At the moment, until the 15th February 2011, the DNR Mona Baroque Gown & Lingerie Collection in Rose is on group discount at the mainstore.

The rest of what I am wearing is listed below.

A secret

Oh-my-god. I shopped. Not just a quick log-in-to-TP-to-TDR (The Dressing Room, I presume everyone knows it by now), buy what's being offered that I suspect I may like, log off and forget. Nope - last weekend I actually went to shops where all the items were made by the same creator and set at full price. How did that happen? It started as a fairly normal TDR routine, when I had to notice (everyone has, apparently) the amazing skirt by a guest store called The Secret Store. I have no idea how long they've been around, but they were new to me so I went to have a look at what they had to offer. They're on a sim called Cheesecake, so I decided there could be nothing bad. And oh boy, was I right. Almost as good as cheesecake.

Amongst the (many) items I bought, a dress in particular, called
Pretty Poppy, caught my eye. I wasn't disappointed on unpacking: the textures and the sculpted primwork are just incredible; it comes with an accessory belt plus the chest ruffles in two attachment point options. If I had to find a fault with it, I guess it would be that the glitch pants only come in the underwear layer, which makes it kinda not-so-easy to find appropriate tights to wear it with. But hey, I managed.

After buying all those pretty clothes, I decided that it would only be fair to get new hair to go with them, so I paid a visit to my two old loves: Elikatira and Truth. [me sighs] How I love them, and how grateful I am that they have stores on the Marketplace, so I can avoid the infernal lag. With that excuse, I proceeded to try every single demo, and eventually settled on Elikatira's Mood (Red 08 being my colour) to go with the dress. I was tempted to buy a new skin too and went straight for Tuli's demos, but then I decided to give Belleza's group gift Erika a try - and it won my heart. There are two Erikas in the gift box at the store, I chose the one with turquoise eyeshadow for the pictures with the dress, but here's a closeup of my new face in the bare option. It's not for me to say it, but it's lovely, innit?

Since I was at it I tried to renew my eyes as well (Miriel's probably been closed for over a year now, it's time to move on) but, to be honest, I found nothing that convinced me. I picked both the Poetic Colors and the Amacci gifts, but if those are anything to go by, I'll pass. So, I'm back where I started. If anyone was a Miriel lover and has found a convincing substitute, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll just stick to the oldies and goodies.
To round up the look, I added the Delphine pumps in gold by Shiny Things, another group gift, SBJ's gold necklace (FabFree gift) and Glow Studio's Lowicz thick wood branclet (TDR item). The tights are a prehistorical tintable pair, but still work for me. Poses are from Samara's photosphere, by various creators participating in the 2010 pose fair [hey, that's what Sam's poseball said!].
