Movin Lingerie

28 09 2009

Do you ever look at those ads on the iheartsl page?  I must admit that I do not always look at them, but every once in a while something catches my eye.  Such was the case a few weeks ago when I saw an ad for Movin Lingerie.  Always in need of more lingerie, I excitedly tp’d over to this store I’d never heard of before and anxiously waited for things to rez.  I wasn’t disappointed…in fact, I think I bought most of the store. 
 
Movin Lingerie is an eclectic mix of styles and colors from modest to not so much and alluring to dead sexy.  There aren’t really color options to choose from on most of the outfits. Sort of, the color you see is the color you get.  But they do have a few sets that come in different colors for you to choose from.  Another thing I enjoyed is the option to buy sets as transferable for gift giving.  That is an extra step I really appreciate because gift giving is becoming increasinly difficult in SL.
 
As I mentioned above, I bought almost the entire store, but one set called to me more than the others.  It is my favorite in the entire store, and it’s called Olear.

::Emjay:: Sash Tops – Inspired By Fall

21 09 2009

For my second post about the ::Emjay:: Sash Tops, I wanted to do some fall inspired looks.  The top comes in both beige and brown, and I thought it could be fun to celebrate the transitioning seasons by pairing this lovely top with some more traditional autumn items.  For the beige top, I knew immediately what I wanted to do.

::Emjay:: Sash Tops – A Night Out

16 09 2009

Magen Jigsaw of ::Emjay:: was kind enough to send over a fatpack of her newest release: the Sash tops.  I was so excited when I saw the photo of this incredibly cute yet sexy top, I IM’d her right away to tell her so.  I couldn’t wait to try them on, and I was not disappointed.  Magen continues to get better with each release she puts out.  I absolutely love everything about this shirt: the asymentry of the hem, the way it wraps around the neck and leaves the shoulders bare and the lovely textured band underneath the bustline.  The Sash top is cute, yet sexy; feminine and flirty.  It’s form-fitting without really showing a lot of skin.  That is the best kind of sexy, don’t you think?  Shirts that make the imagination wander just a bit.
 
The ::Emjay:: Sash Tops come in seven different colors, and, being the adventurous sort, I thought I’d try to come up with a look for each color option.  I wanted to do this, mostly, to show you how versatile the tops can be and will be breaking my posts up accordingly.  Now, the top does come in Olive, and those of you who read this blog know that I don’t wear green.  The jury is still out on whether or not I’ll be able to pull something together for that one, but for today I will show you the first two looks I put together.
 
My favorite of the entire fatpack is the White shirt.

**Guest Post – Glowing**

12 09 2009

**Rhodesy Durant, friend and fellow MDR Photographer, has done another guest blog post. This time, she’s talking about her newly purchased skin.  Of course, I had to try it on too!  But as is the case with so many, it didn’t really work for my avatar.  I think it’s gorgeous though, so I encouraged Rhodesy to share her find with all of you.  Enjoy!**

My second life began over 3 years ago, and in that time I blush to tell you the vast number of skins I have purchased. I’ve been wearing my current skin almost exclusively for over two years. I’ve blogged about it here before.

And while I’ve been very happy with my every day skin, I never could quite stop the search for others. I’ve spent thousands of lindens on skins I thought I liked, wore around my friends once, and then never donned again. I’ve tried hundreds of lindens worth of demos too. And then, this week, I donned a demo skin that was as good as my normal one but upgraded.  I still looked like myself. I just looked…more clearly defined. And then I took my clothes off, and it was all over but paying for the skin pack. My rear end and cleavage has never looked so well defined or realistic! This skin manages to lend curvy lines to an otherwise demurely small figure.

After walking around for 3 days wearing a demo skin and getting Arcadia’s opinion so many times she probably wanted to hurt me, I broke down and bought it. And Arcadia insisted I blog it for all of you to enjoy as well. LAQ’s new Glow Skins absolutely work for my avatar! Below, I’ve posted some tasteful pics so that you too can appreciate the attention to detail that was put into this skin. Specifically, I’ll draw your attention to the knuckles and kneecaps.

Cocktails, Anyone?

8 09 2009

Since buying the fatpack of the Shanti shoes by Maitreya Gold, I’ve decided to try to come up with an outfit for every single color in said fatpack, even the ones I would not normally wear.  A lofty goal, perhaps, but as I am ruined for regular avatar feet now, I don’t see me taking these off for a while.  Why not play around with variety then?  It is what this blog is about, after all.  For today’s look, I started with the Shanti shoes in Cerulean.
 
I love the color Cerulean, and the word is just fun to say really.  For this pair of the Shanti shoes, I wanted something elegant but not too formal.  A little cocktail dress that was glamourous and sexy, but not over the top. The Soft Ruffle Dress from Baiastice turned out to be the perfect match.

Review – Isabel by Insolence

7 09 2009

It has been well established that my love of lingerie knows no bounds, so it should not come as a shock to learn how excited I get when I see an offline inventory offer from Camilla Yosuke of Insolence.  It is one of the few times I feel like I am in a rush to get home and log in so I can see the wonderful newness she has created.  The newest set, Isabel, does not disappoint. In fact, I will go so far as to say I think this is one of her best pieces.

If The Shoe Fits…

3 09 2009

golds_005 copy

buy it in every color!  I love that quote, and I certainly did buy every color of the new Maitreya Gold Shanti shoes via the fatpack option.  I did think about it for a day or two, because I’ve never spent that many lindens on anything in all of my second life.  But when I figured out how much I’d be saving via the fatpack option, I clicked buy, and the rest, as they say,  is history. 
 
Words cannot express how much I adore these shoes.  They are incredible.  My very first foray into prim toes, and I’m totally hooked.  The HUD is super easy to use and comes with all kinds of options for skin matching and toenail polish colors.  I really had no trouble matching my skin tone.  What’s even better is that it comes with five spaces you can save settings on, in case you have several skins you like to wear.  Me, I seem to stick with ::Exodi::.
 
Yes, I adore these shoes more than an avatar should, but I can’t take them off.  All I do is switch colors and change the nail polish option with each outfit. Speaking of outfits, I did come up with a super casual, yet chic summery look to go with my new shoes.
