Handbag Love

My love of handbags is not quite as out of control as my hair and shoe obsession, but it is getting there.  This studded handbag from Pure Poison comes in several colors.  I suggest a fatpack because the studded detailing is such fun, you'll want it for many outfits.  At least I do.   This dress is a new release from Liv-Glam, and the back was so adorable I just had to show you my rear.  It comes in a hud with a color change option so you can fatpack it for the price of one dress.

In case you're wondering about this great location, it's my home sim that I share with Ayla, April, Clay and our quiet neighbor Isack and his cuties.  April did a great job turning her area into a Louisiana swamp (we're currently obsessed with True Blood - she's in Eric's camp, I love Sam).

Today is my co-blogger Ayla's birthday and I can't wait for us to go get her present!  We'll take a pic and post it on the blog when we get around to it.  Happy Birthday Ayla, sweets!

Pop Princess Audition

My Attic at the Deck has a pop star theme this go around and I got a kick out of Adorkable's poses with the microphone prop.  Winx has a a couple of great photo sets.  The treble clef and eighth notes in the background are from that set. 

Drawing from my own wardrobe to dress for my audition, I was happy to see mesh pieces from different creators worked together the way this Baiastice top and Maitreya skirt do.  Going blonde was just because when I think pop star I think Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga and a horde of blonde pop stars.  Totally cliche!

Classy and Fabulous

Coco Chanel once said that a girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.  I feel a little of both in the outfit I put together today.  The ladylike dress is from a new-to-me store called Liv-Glam.  With the stripes and the darling red bow it didn't need all that much dressing up.  My Gos Boutique peeptoe pumps, a Leverocci handbag and hat hair from Maitreya finished off my classy/fab look. 

Liv-Glam is a mostly mesh women's clothing store and it's quite large.  I didn't find the demos my first time through, but they're there and appear to be standard sizes.  I was also a little confused when I bought this dress, because I received a wearable hud instead of a package.  The idea is to choose your size from the hud and it's delivered to you - no more deleting unnecessary sizes!  Once I figured that out I was fine.  I'll be keeping an eye out for newness from this store!

Early Spring

In my real life the weather swings wildly between 60 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit.  In Second Life, with a snap of my fingers - well, AprilMae Devin's fingers, since she has the terrain textures - Spring has come to our sim.  It's still sweater weather so thank goodness for coldLogic's new cardigan/dress combo outfits!  The cardigans can also be worn separately, though I haven't tried to mix and match yet.  I had enough trouble deciding which style and color to show you! 
I decided I needed a second photo to show you the jewelry, since it is from a store that is new to me - Remarkable Oblivion.  Gogo of Juicy Bomb blogged the cutest crown that she picked up there, tempting me to take a look and pick up a couple of goodies.

coldLogic Is One Year Old

I'm amazed that it's been a year and amazed that it's only been a year since the opening of coldLogic, an all mesh women's clothing store that has all the mainstays of my wardrobe.  It's my kind of place, a store I'd shop in real life as well.  To celebrate their anniversary there's a free dress for members and a photo contest, too.  I won last year's photo contest - my first time in Second Life to win such a thing, so please pardon the bragging.  For this year's contest, you can read about it HERE.

I thought I'd go through my extensive coldLogic folders and do a mix and match outfit for this post.  I love the Meek plaid jacket and shirt combo thrown over jeans.   Happy anniversary coldLogic, and may you celebrate many more!

OMG I Ate the Whole Thing!

You can tell I had a lot of fun with this new release specialty skin from PXL Creations.  Called Gluttony, it's a rare skin in a new gacha set called Seven Sins Skin, available at the store.

Just to prove to you that it really is a pretty skin (giggle), I took a picture without the tongue and cherry that come with the skin.  The crossed eyes - well that was my own doing.

A Silent Star

I've been trying to figure out how best to show off LeLutka's new vintage hair, Lillian.  I liked the way the belt on this Baiastice dress complimented the headpiece for the hair, and once I connected the hair and dress, my silent movie star was born.  My inspiration (and LeLutka's, I'm pretty sure) was Lillian Gish, who began as a silent film star in 1912 and had a career that spanned 75 years.

Surprise Me with a Valentine

My eyes are closed as I wait to see what's in store for Valentine's Day.  I'm in the spirit, wearing lots of passionate red.  My necklace and earrings from Earthstones are heart shaped, so I've managed to put a heart in every picture for the week leading up to today!  Happy Valentine's Day to everyone who reads my posts.  If you have a special someone, you're all set.  If not, dress up, drink up, and do something fun.

Global Domination

The Second Life news I get comes from blogs, feeds, and my Plurk timeline (if you don't know Plurk it's a social networking site that's sort of twitterish, but not).  Lately I've been seeing these scary posts about GLOBAL DOMINATION.  If you know me at all you probably know I don't want to dominate the globe.  I don't even want to dominate Second Life - though the occasional domination of my globes is acceptable (wink).

So, I thought, "no, that's not for me, this Global Domination."  But it continued to assault me with information from all sides.  I learned you needed a passport HUD and could buy it for $300L at various stores - ah, stores.  Wouldn't mind dominating a few of them.  I learned the price of the HUD (and tempting gifts with purchase) would go up on the 14th, so everyone should run out to get their passport HUD early.  But - Global Domination is a scary prospect!

Then I popped into Baiastice to see the new releases, and what do you know.  Right there at the landing spot was a kiosk to buy a Global Domination passport HUD (which you apparently must have to dominate the globe).  If I bought the passport at Baiastice I would get a gift with the passport purchase consisting of the hat and handbag from the picture above.  NOW I got it.  I must HAVE that!  So I read the notecard from the kiosk, explaining a little bit about the game - yeah.  It's a game, a puzzle riddle sort of game that takes you to 17 participating stores, solving puzzles and winning prizes.  It starts February 14th and lasts a couple of weeks.  The Hottie Cooterati Experience is the sponsor and there's real information about it on their website here.

Maybe Global Domination will be fun after all.  I have my passport just in case.

If you dare to think I forgot my Valentine challenge with all this dominating of globes, check out the heart necklace.  Maxi Gossamer to the rescue again!

Is it just me, or have several skin designers in Second Life moved to the next level of artistry and beauty over the past year?  I'm amazed when I demo skins lately at how gorgeous they are!  I thought I was a hair and shoe whore, but I'm adding skin whore to my CV.  This lovely skin is Shelby, a new release from Adam N Eve - a store that has been around as long as I've been in Second Life.  I bought either my first or second skin there (and no, I don't have a picture - I wish I did).   Shelby comes with dark eyebrows but includes blonde and red tattoo layers.  The makeups are lovely and I was tempted, but I tend to favor the barest skins. It's Second Life! Who needs makeup with flawless skin like this?

I popped into Zaara just because I haven't been there in awhile.  I love her new mesh designs, like this dress you can barely see.  The little extra bow detail for the shoulder straps, complete with beads is brilliant.  Also, I didn't forget my heart for my personal Valentine's Day challenge!  Maxi Gossamer's new release for Collabor88 did the trick.

February Collabor88 Goodies

I don't know where to start so I'm jumping in.  Fashionably Dead has released another winning top at this month's Collabor88.  It comes in solids, stripes or polkadots.  The green works great with my coldLogic leggings and Gos shoes! 

You can tell by the serene expression on my face that I'll be falling onto a nice fluffy cloud thanks to Flowey's darling photo prop, also a Collabor88 offering.  It comes in four versions and six different poses.

Truth is at Collabor88 this month with a gorgeous hair called Hollanda.  My one-sided love affair with Mr. Hawks continues.  SMOOCH!

Glam Affair has introduced a lovely new skin.  I went for the no eye makeup/red lips version, which seems vintage to me.  Think 50's.

Remember my challenge to myself about doing a heart theme until Valentine's Day?  Check out Yummy Accessories' colorful necklace at Collabor88.  Two hearts!

Pink and Hearts for Girlie Girls

Yesterday I mused in my blog about whether I could do a hearts theme between now and Valentine's Day on the 14th.  I have no idea, but I thought I'd give it a try.  I loved the Teefy sweatshirt dress in pink polka dot and it went great with the snood.  See the hearts?  Both are available at FaMeshed for the entire month of February.  For good measure I added a heart-shaped pendant watch from Maxi Gossamer.

Every Woman Needs Something Red

The reason I've gone blonde for this picture isn't all that clear to me, except that I thought this Bilo dress had a vintage Marilyn Monroe sort of feel and the hair color is called Marilyn.  Good enough reason!  The heart shaped handbag from Pure Poison gave me an excuse to wear the red version of my Gos Boutique peep toe pumps (my favorites after Grace).  I wonder if I can keep up the hearts theme until Valentine's Day?

The lonely, barren location used in this and my last post is Bryn Oh's Immersiva.  Viewing a 3D art installation by walking around it in a virtual body is just one of the reasons I love Second Life.

I know I'm not, but when I put on leather with studs and carry a tiger skin purse, I feel a tiny bit like a rebel.  Or maybe I'm just a slave to fashion.  FaMeshed is marvelous all the way around this month, including Rebel Hope's offering of a skin tight leather dress and furry hide handbag.

You Are My Hiding Place

I haven't been on Second Life much in recent weeks, but on the days pain is manageable I try to keep up with my blogging commitment. I feel guilty leaving it all up to Dolly.

I visited FaMeshed a few days back and picked up this cute dress from The Secret Store. It comes in various colour combinations and is just as cute as pie.

I'm Going to Miss You

This beautiful version of the Sophia skin from PXL Creations is called Decadence, but to me it captures a melancholy mood. Does anyone have a box of tissues?  It's a group gift for PXL's VIP group.  Sophia has been released in only a couple skin tones so far, but isn't she lovely?

My absolute favorite clothing item at February's FaMeshed (so far) is Coco Design's sparkly tee shirt and vest - two pieces, but sold together.  It's perfect with jeans or a short skirt.  My earrings are also from FaMeshed, by the ever talented Maxi Gossamer.

Whose Present Is It Really?

It's February and you know what that means.  Valentine's Day is coming.  Pure Poison has a new release perfect for an evening of dancing and romance.  The heart shaped box holds everything from mesh lingerie, dress, rose, and shoes (not shown because I still haven't been able to take off my new Gos shoes).  If you get this gift from your Valentine's Day date, you'll wonder for whom the gift is really meant, you or them.
