Summer in the City

June 4, 2010

Hello… hello…. HELLOOO!  🙂  I’m back, and I have missed you so much, you lovelies!!

I can’t stand to miss summer in the virtual city, so I came back to get myself a spanking new SL loft with a fantastic view.  Once that was done, I hope you can guess what came next: foraging around my favorite ol’ shops. And Friday was certainly a good day to choose to come back, dontcha think??  What a wonderful welcome home!  I kiss you on the mouth, 50L$ Fridays! Love!

I apologize in advance for the brevity of this post… I have lots of catching up to do, though, in world, and as much as I would love to gab and gush in detail about all of these things, for once I’m gonna let the pics speak for themselves.  (with slurls and deets below…)

But, short though this is, I promise to be back with lots more… lots and lots and lots more.  Do you know how much fashion you miss after a whole four month break??  It is downright SCANDALOUS.

MUAH– see you soon, and happy shopping!

Here Comes the Bride

September 14, 2009

Saturday is my wedding day.  (Yayyy!  Happy Jen!)

Things are getting very hectic, though, so I will not be able to post for a few weeks.  (Boooo!  Sad Jen!)

In honor of my pending nuptuals and the topic that seems to be consuming every corner of my mind these days, I wanted to put together a couple of wedding looks.

here comes

This dress from Lurve is a winner!  The detail in the texture is great… you can almost feel the weight of the fabric, and the silkiness.  See it?

I do

I adore the little feathery sweetness at the bustline, too.  The silhouette is grand, but not over the top, and it really lends itself to many kinds of weddings.  As with most SL wedding dresses, there are a variety of skirt options, and I have chosen the biggest here.  It was the only one I “lurved” really.  🙂


And can we talk about this bouquet for a minute??  Exquisite!  I have to say, I was not a fan of LaPointe and BastChild‘s whole mega mall set up, and it was hard shopping there, but amidst all the flotsam and jetsam there were these gorgeous bouquets– WITH all sorts of fun wedding options attached!  Poses, throwing, etc.  OK, just posing and throwing.  But you get my drift…

Now… on to a vixen of a bride:


Hmmm.  From this angle, she doesn’t look so vixeny, I admit.  But I had to start off by showing you this train and bustle.  Oooooo, I love the bustle!  This dress from VictoriaV showcases V’s rightfully famous workmanship.  The attachments barely need any adjusting, and the skirt comes in a million different choices– again, this is the biggest.  The veil is from VictoriaV as well, a simple thing called the Erin that seemed to me went nicely with this simple and sexy dress.  Ohhh, and speaking of sexy:

happy bride

HERE you can see the corseting and plunging neckline and fitted bodice that make me squee!  Yes, she is a vixen all right, but not a slut.  There is a difference, no?  I love the way this works with the Poseidon pearls set, a great find from luc that I wear alllll the time, though never quite as nicely as here with this bridal look!  And instead of a full bouquet, I added in a lovely lily cuff from creamshop.  Ohhh, creamshop– how I adore you.

So… that is it, my sweets!  Next time I post, it will be as a married lady, but I solemnly promise no less squeeing and frivolity than my single self indulged in!  (For better or worse, eh?)

See you very soon… until then, check out the details below.  MUAHHHH!

Pink’d for Half Price

Just a quick post to spread the word about Pink‘s half off dress sale– all the dresses at the store are just half price, and that means killer bargains!  Yay!!  If you haven’t experienced Pink’s dresses, then it is definitely a great way to start.  🙂  The sale is going on until August 31.

Here are a few of the dresses on sale– just a sampling, there are plenty more!

red dress

AND… I have saved the biggest treat for last!  The skin in these pics is from Beetlebones!  Squee!  That’s right, the cutie patootie suetabulous yootz has released her first skin, Amelie.  It is a lovely, soft skin with some great details:


I absolutely love the lips, which are so natural and feathered looking, and the body freckles make me sooooo happy!  Yay!  There are several makeups included in the pack, and on top of everything else it is extremely reasonably priced– more than worth the trip down to creator’s pavillion for a set.  🙂

That’s all for now, fellow shop-a-holics!  Enjoy your Thursday, and happy shopping!

Designers United… for Jellyfish!

August 16, 2009

Get ready to squee: yesterday the Designer’s United Event opened!  This time the theme was Jellyfish, a very appropriate theme for August in my neck of the woods.  The range of creations is amazing… everything from poses to hair to clothing and accessories, with some interpretations of jellyfish being more literal than others.  In any case, the proof is in the Lindens– I could not reel in my shopping impulses and I promptly bought out the whole store of things for my virtual closet.

Is that crazy of me?  You be the judge:


close up bustier

First off– the skin.  JM:Mai has created two versions of a Jellyfish skin, and this one is called water.  It is utterly lovely, with freckles and a translucent glow that really does recall the look of a jellyfish, but in a non-costumey, flattering and wearable way.   The makeup on the face is all courtesy of the skin, but the tattoo below the neck is not.  That is an adorably affordable creation from Duboo, rendering Jellyfish as cartoonish and colorful things which… well, I would like to IMAGINE they are.

Adding to the adorable factor of this outfit is the uber-fun two tone hair from Ohmai, which has my fave ginger as the base with a big streak of lemony yellow threaded in the braid from the back.  There are other color combinations available, too, and the style is so hipster and does mimic jellyfishy tentacles very cleverly.

The bustier top is from This is a Fawn, and while it is not the most literal of jellyfish interpretations, it certainly is squeelicious and has great gradiation of colors and texture!  I paired that with some freebie tights from Royal Blue, and some genius poofer shorts from Gigi, for a funky little hipster Jelly girl look.

(Another outfit and all the slurls, after the jump)
