It’s cold here in RL and I’m feeling the need to dress warmly in my virtual life as well.  One of my favorite new “winter” outfits is Katerina from House of RFyre.  I knew I wanted it the moment I saw the photo.  It was so beautiful I even asked for a review copy; which is something I do very rarely.  Harper Beresford was kind enough to pass me Katerina and I knew I had to take it to one of my favorite snowy places and snap some photos.

::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.

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

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.

Swimsuit Spotlight – Baiastice

27 08 2009

Unless an incredibly fantastic bikini/swimsuit gets released in the near future, this will likely be my last post on swimwear for a while.  Not that we can’t enjoy a dip in the ocean all year long in our virtual paradise, because we can.  But the change of seasons in RL will have me focusing on my favorite season soon; autumn.  Until then, I’ve saved one of my favorite swimsuits for last:  Barcelona by Baiastice.

I never go to any grand ball’s or lavish parties, but I must admit that I love ballgowns.  There is something so elegant and beautiful about a well made gown that I find hard to resist.  Such is the case with one of the newer releases at Sascha’s Designs – Ethereal.  Sascha Frangilli was kind enough to gift me with this gorgeous gown in Argent, which is a lush silver color.  The dress can be worn in three different ways and it comes with a really well done hat.  Unfortunately, hats and my avatar are not a good combination generally, but it’s a gorgeous piece and certainly gives you options.  I chose to wear the full ballgown skirt, but will include the vendor ad at the end of this post so that you can see how versatile this dress is.
