Oh so CHIC!

It’s almost time for the CHIC² birthday event to open!! It opens today at 4pm SLT. I’ll come back and update this post with the SLurl when it does! It’s open now!!!!!

Style - Oh So CHIC!

There is a lot of CUTE CUTE stuff out there, as you would expect from a CHIC Management event, so it’s definitely not to be missed! The event has 150 of CHIC’s best loved stores and each brand will have one new and exclusive (for the duration of the event) item with the theme of CHIC. Also, be sure you’re good with your camera. The event area is smallish, but the store pods are stacked in levels. You could fly to each one, but I was able to see everything by just standing in one spot and camming around. And yes, it WILL BE LAGGY ON OPENING DAY. Go in a simple outfit and take off your scripted items. Believe me, no one cares what you look like or how you’re walking. They just want to shop!

The CHIC² birthday event starts at 4pm SLT today and runs until June 24th.

A Blooming Rose

Fashion For Life starts today at noon!! I’ve been in pink girly heaven with this gown from My Precious by Agnes Finney called Forever Yours.

Style - A Blooming Rose

I don’t wear a lot of gowns, but THIS one…WOW! So very impressed! It’s like walking springtime, and being this lovely shade of pink, you know I’m very happy to float around in it.

I’m not sure which sim My Precious is on for FFL [I know, bad blogger!] but I’ll update this when I get the SLurl. But truly, you should walk around FFL anyway because there’s some wonderful stuff out there!

Cheerfully Spring!

So many great deals and sales and events going on! Let me see how much I can smash into one post!

The March Mesh Madness event is going on, and if you’re able to get in [it’s pretty packed!], you can get this fab Thistle dress from Jane and cute Ginger hair from Wasabi Pills!

Style - Cheerfully Spring!

Jane is now doing standard sizes, which is a huge WIN for me ever since I modded my shape to fit into the size I wanted. And this dress is so fluffy and adorable, I don’t want to take it off! And I am such a fan of Wasabi Pills now that they do mesh hair. This hair is kind of 70s/80s retro with the hairband and it has a low pony tail in the back.

Stumblebum just started its new round yesterday! The theme this time is “Cheer” and the Briar skin from Aura is out in two tones with a couple of makeups. I’m wearing the Aqua makeup to match my dress.

Style - Cheerfully Spring, closeup

Briar is my everyday skin lately, so new makeups are always nice! The skins this time only come in the Honey and Espresso tones. I’m wearing Honey, and I have to say, I’m really getting attached to it although my normal tone is Milk.

Also for Stumblebum, Frooti has a Happy Days Mini Pack of 3 poses, which I’m using for my post today!

And for SCD’s Disco Deals, Dark Mouse has out this delicate Les Etoiles Brillent necklace & earrings set. I am ALWAYS looking for more delicate jewelry, so this fits the bill nicely! I’m wearing the Copper metal here, and it also comes in gold and silver.

So many sales still going on, so I need to run!

Music Of The Night

I am SUCH a fan of mesh clothing, as I’m sure is pretty obvious by now. I was very excited to hear about the Avenue’s Mix + Mesh fashion fair! Bunches of mesh in one place? Sign me up! Although this is different than my normal style, I loved the Marta gown by Jador Fashion. So elegant!

Style - Music of the night

Style - Music of the night, Close Up

I haven’t seen a lot of mesh corsets yet, which is a shame because you can see from the photo that you REALLY get a corseted look with mesh! I feel like I should lie on a fainting couch somewhere with my bosom heaving. This outfit also has a very precious little eye mask, and although it’s not shown here, it has a little hat! Pretty pretty!

I will say that this gown is truly more suited for photos because the skirt really moves with the legs. While that gives you great effects for photos in some poses, it doesn’t quite work with walking or dancing.

Mix + Mesh starts tomorrow, February 25th at 1pm SLT, and lasts until March 11th. You will, obviously, need to be on a mesh enabled viewer to go if you want to get the full effect!

You make me wanna…

The lingerie challenge is over, but that doesn’t mean I have to put my clothes back on, does it? It does? Well…how about just half way?

Style - You Make Me Wanna...

At the Festival of Sin, Elymode has these awesome Lussuria sheer tanks, skirts, and stockings! The skirts have the crotch panel, and you can choose the regular prim version or the part mesh version. The part mesh one means you can edit it slightly, mostly to pull it down in the back. At least, I always end up having to pull them down in these kinds of skirts. My butt is high or something.

GOS came out with these awesome Triumph boots for the Festival, and women were lined up outside his stall before the Festival even fully opened just to get these boots! [And to see Mr. Voom himself!] They are mesh boots but come in two pieces. You get a choice to wear the leg part up like I have it her, or rolled down to show in the inner lining. Or you could always wear just the foot part under some wide legged jeans.

Oh! Let me tell you about this skybox I took my pic in today! Trompe Loeil came out with the Ka’u Beach House skybox and it’s AMAZING! It’s mesh and it’s like a beach house at night, with everything you’d really need right in the box, down to the waves and the moon! Seriously fantastic!

Okay, written enough! 🙂

In Love With Her Own Reflection

The Festival of Sin is opening on Saturday!! So excited! The seven deadly sims are all represented well and I just know you guys will find something that catches your eye.

Style - In Love With Her Own Reflection

Solange brings us the Carnal lingerie, and it is as gorgeous as you would expect from one of Second Life’s long time designers. It reminds me of a burlesque costume with the pannier skirt! It also matches the new mesh Khan heels by Ingenue. You can’t see it in the picture, but the heels have a tiny row of spikes up the bace of the shoe. My necklace is by Caroline’s Jewelry for the Festival and is called Tangled Mess. It really is a tangled little mess of thin chains. It’s fabulous!

My pose is from Frooti from the Beautiful Vanity pack for the Festival. It comes with the mirror! Now I really can just run around staring at myself!

The Festival of Sin opens on February 18th at 5pm SLT.

Happy New Bum!

Stumblebum is BACK, baby! This biweekly event made up of some of the grid’s best designers has always been one of my favorites in SL. And they certainly got it started off right this time around!

Style - Happy New Bum!

From Illusory, we have the New Year dress. It’s a stunning little sparkly mini dress, perfect for parties! My pose is from Frooti, and I can honestly say the poses are just as fun as the store name! Truth has brought us the Velvet hair, which is so flippin’ cute and a style I have simply been DYING for!! I’m not wearing them, but there are 2 little color change bows on the curly poofy buns. Oh, you want to see things closer? Okay!

Style - Happy New Bum! - Closeup

Love this hair so hard!! Also in Stumblebum are these super pretty Real Eyes from Insufferable Dastard. And I absolutely cannot have a post without mesh, so luckily for me Aura has these fab Down Pour earrings!

This round of Stumblebum lasts 2 weeks and all items from the designers are NEW, not recolored previous releases. The prices are a little lower for Stumblebum, but remember it’s not a “get your cheap on” type of event. All Stumblebum prices are between 100L-700L. But honestly, they are great prices for great new work, so go get shopping!

Collabor88 Again!

Tomorrow is September 8th, and you know what that means! A new edition of Collabor88!! The theme this month is Neons & Neutrals, and one of my favorite stores, Ingenue, put it together beautifully!

Style - Collabor88 Again!!

The Sedgwick dress is a mod little number that would do Ms. Edie Sedgwick proud. There are also tights that match the dress, but my legs started to look weird to me. I love the colors, though, so I know they’ll get used for another outfit! Also to match, the cute cute Bridget flats! I love flat shoes in any life, and I wish I could yank these from my computer and put them on my own feet!

Collabor88 starts tomorrow, and you guys are going to LOVE it!!
