Sail Into the Sun

Posted on Updated on

Now I know what this looks like: I’m clearly not dressed for sailing, and this lil’ ship of mine is a fair distance from the shoreline, but I totally didn’t commandeer it for fashionable photography purposes, honest! Well, not purposefully; it was just floating there so innocently and enticingly off the coast of the Mesh Avenue event – how could I resist? But as you can see, my clone and I have absolutely no clue how to sail, and neither a strapping young sailor nor a randy band of pirates was anywhere to be found. So when all else fails, pose for your life! :)

An easy-breezy, simply chic look for today, thanks to the lovely Jennifer Dress by LEGENDAIRE (available at the FAD Fashion Event), which I’m especially fond of for its deeply-dipping arm and necklines, the lusciously high left-side slit, and the perfect knee-length cut. The HUD offers four unique patterns, and it comes in standard mesh sizing. The angle hides my delicate necklace more than I intended, but it’s well worth visiting the Totally Top Shelf event to see all the lovely items on offer, and if you adore Secret Love‘s jewelry as I do, be sure to stop by the mainstore where Faylinn is offering a 50% off sale on everything through August 20th!

I also want to mention my gorgeous hairstyle by Besom, which may be exclusively found at the current round of Collabor88 through September 4th. This is the must-visit event of the week, with a dazzling number of designers contributing to the 4th anniversary round of this truly wonderful shopping experience (it’s in my Top 5 favorites for sure!) The Alder hairstyle is super versatile: a touch of bombshell mixed with sleek and chic, and that perfect mid-torso length that I love so much. Getting into C88 will be tricky for at least the next few days, but I promise it will be worth it when you get there!

Shaken, Not Stirred

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes you create a look and immediately a character springs to mind to go with it. Today, I feel like an effortlessly chic, yet devastatingly dangerous Bond villainess. One second I’m seducing 007, and the next I’m coiled like a serpent, ready to strike. And yet, through every twist and turn of my devious plan, my hair stays perfectly plaited and my lipstick is always flawless!

My dress is the fabulously slinky It Girl by RAYNE Couture, and may be found at the Sneak Peek event through August 4th. It comes in two other colors, and I favored this gorgeous reddish-pink print that makes me feel like a freshly ripened strawberry. Yummy! My perfect braid is by Besom and is the Left to Jackson style found at the current round of N21. Its sister style, Jackson, is also available sans the wide-brimmed hat. Another N21 item that I’m featuring is the gorgeous red pout of Nova Bodyshop‘s Hayden Lipsticks. They’re available in both system tattoo layers and a wide range of appliers; all of the details may be found in the credits above!

I rarely carry a bag in Second Life, and when I do, I really appreciate a style that looks functional (like one could actually stash their possessions inside), and that has a pose modifier that allows it to work properly with Animation Overiders. I’m thrilled to say that LEGENDAIRE‘s Lilly Bag offers both! 6 lovely colors may be selected from the HUD, and it may presently be found at The Instruments event. My glam gold accessories are all from the Jungle set by Salt & Pepper, and are yours for the collecting at the current round of The Epiphany. It’s a wonderfully unique gacha-themed event that allows you to trade in extra copies of your commons toward special exclusives. It’s a bit tricky to wrap your mind around the concept, but here’s a Flickr post that offers a wonderfully clear explanation of how it all works. You have until August 4th to experience The Epiphany!

I hope you’re all having a marvelous start to the week! I’m off to indulge in a little light murder and mayhem … I mean, get my nails done? Yes, much more likely story. Until next time! 💋
