Getting Into Trouble

5 04 2010

This is not a typical blog post…

Steeling my nerves, I opened the door of the A-1 Detective Agency and stepped across the threshold, eyes zeroing in on the man I was here to see.  He was sitting behind a desk, shirt only half buttoned but his hat still firmly in place.  I blinked once, twice and then shut the door firmly, striding over to stand in front of the desk.  He didn’t even look up from the stack of papers he was signing.  I gripped the belt ties of my trench coat and waited for him to acknowledge my presence in the room.  And he would acknowledge me.  I was, after all, standing in front of his desk.  Besides, if all else failed, what I was wearing underneath this coat was sure to get his attention. 

My hands tightened on the ties as he finally looked up with a raised eyebrow. 

“You lost, doll?” His tone was far less helpful than his words.

I shook my head, trying to remain calm and collected, but truth was he made me a little nervous.  Okay, a lot nervous.  He was so much more…male than I expected him to be.  Tall, dark, and handsome was the cliché that came to mind, but with a healthy does of mysterious and sexy to round out the equation.  Why, oh why did I have to be attracted to him?  This would make what I had to do that much harder in the long run.  “I need your help.”

Valentine Seduction

8 02 2010

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day, and I certainly wouldn’t be me, if there weren’t a lingerie post in here somewhere.  Of course, there are tons of special Valentine’s sets out there and I have a few of them, but I wanted to focus on a more seductive style for my Valentine’s Day.  I wanted something a bit daring with a bit of an edge and Jade by Blacklace was a perfect fit.

Miss Blaize

8 06 2009

Burlesque is just inherently sexy, isn’t it?  I love everything about it, but especially the costumes and one of my favorites comes from Reasonable Desires.  I blogged about that here.  When Austie Pegler passed me review copies of their newest release the other night and told me that it was a burlesque outfit, I couldn’t wait to put it on.  I was not disappointed.  It comes in 6 different colors and each one has a different name.  My favorite is the blue one: Miss Blaize.

The Life of a Lingerie Model, Part 2

6 06 2009

A few weeks ago, IndigoBlue Dagastino of Seldom Blue contacted me about shooting some photos of her new line of lingerie called Kira.  Of course I jumped at the chance, not only because I love lingerie, but because this set is named for one of my oldest and dearest SL friends, Kira Lebed.  I was even more thrilled that Kira and her lovely partner Katia Hartshon were my models for that shoot.  You can see some of the photos from that in the entryway to Seldom Blue.  It’s really very cool to have your work on display in a store.  And, lucky me, IndigoBlue Dagastino was nice enough to gift me with two colors of the Kira set, Nude and Lilac.  After shooting every color Kira comes in, I have to say they are all exquisite, but these two colors stood out the most for me. 

One of the places I shot Kira and Katia’s photos was at Chouchou, Chouchou.  I am absolutely enamored with shooting lingerie there for some reason, especially in the bird cage.  I think it’s an interesting concept shoot, and for the blog I decided to take the Kira lingerie back there.  Only this time, I got to be both model and photographer.  Lucky me!

The Life of a Lingerie Model

2 06 2009

**EDITED**

I’m on a lingerie kick again.  I know, when am I not?  This time I decided to have some fun and play lingerie model in MDR’s city box.  It was a great chance to set out some of my very underused props, such as the photo lights from Le Boudoir.  But what to wear?  That’s always the question, isn’t it?  Thankfully, I was delighted to learn that Reasonable Desires had a new set called Arcadia.

AYUMI x 3

28 04 2009

A few weeks ago, Ayumi Shinn dropped a review item on the SL Bloggers Network in world, a cleavage enhancer that she designed and is selling in her store.  I’d never heard of her store, [AYUMI], before so I decided to go check it out.  She has some really cute stuff, but my favorite was the Button Up Shirt with it’s plunging necklace and thick belt underneath the bust line.  It comes in five colors, and she’s selling them for 150L each, or 250L for the fatpack.  Never one to pass up a deal, I grabbed the fatpack and decided to see what kind of looks I could throw together using this daringly sexy shirt.

Week of Lingerie – Thursday

20 03 2009

**EDITED**

There are some side benefts to being a photographer in SL.  Sometimes, clients come in with fabulous stuff and they are all too willing to share landmarks with you.  Such as the case with Thursday’s lingerie showcase; Reasonable Desires.

I can’t say I’d ever heard of Reasonable Desires before, but a client of Rhodesy’s came in wearing this cute little vintage lingerie set and I thought it was worth checking out.  There’s a lot of…interesting things there, and it took me awhile to find the set her client was wearing but I prevailed.  And then, there were the color choices.  I’d love if it came in colors other than pastels.  The only red set I found was a Christmas themed one with snowflakes.  It was very cute and I bought it too.  In the end, though, I decided to get Anne in Periwinkle.
