Reminiscence, tags and feeling mellow…with a bit of dark thrown in!

You may be wondering…what on earth does that title mean?

Truthfully…it’s my really bad attempt to put in a clue to all the lusciousness I’m blogging today!  I’ve got some very sweet items from S0H0E, Petit Chat, Le Fashion Whore, Dark Passions Koffin Nails, and Image Essentials to show you, and I am sure you will agree with me, these items are awesome!

First of all, this is the reminiscing part…back to a much earlier time, when the end-of-year prom was THE social event of the high school scene.  That’s what you’ll be feeling when you wear the latest ensemble from S0H0E Shoes and Le Fashion Whore!  Although, this combination is so elegant and lovely, I’m sure you’ll be able to find excuses to wear it anytime! (there’s more to this outfit, but I’ll cover that in my next blog post).  First, the S0H0E sandals, aptly named Cinderella – a gorgeously delicate, strappy shoe with a hud to change colors to match with the Le Fashion Whore prom dress.  This dress is sweetly innocent and a bit of a vamp at the same time – the skirt is subtly decorated in a floral pattern, but the top plunges down to the gathered, embroidered waistline to create a halter neckline, leaving the back mostly bare.   The gown has a hud as well for color changes.  And last, but certainly not least, the corsage, a wristlet-style one with ribbon wristband, pearls, and baby roses.  This is part of a gatcha; I’m modeling the Rare corsage, which has a hud to change the color of the roses and pearls.  The flowers can be changed into solid colors or delicately shaded colors.  Such a gorgeous way to go back in time…ah, if only all reminiscences were as pleasant! (All of these are available AFTER August 1 at Virtual Secret Sales Room:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Phoenix%20in%20Flames/211/161/1501).

I decided to pair the next two items, both from Petit Chat, with the gown, as they are both so delicate and lovely, they seemed perfect accessories!  The Mystique Tag necklace is a unisex offering, having both men’s and women’s styles – I am, of course, modeling the female one, lol.  Normally, a tag necklace is not this delicately pretty, but these tags are a sweet gold with gem inset…so who can argue?  The Smart Gourmette is a dual chain bracelet with a tag that can change color, from gold to silver to copper to bronze; if you buy the fatpack, you’ll also get more huds that not only change the color of the tag, but the design as well!  Isn’t that clever?  This also comes in male and female styles – perfect for couples!  The Mystique Tag necklace is available until August 18 at Lost and Found event:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/La%20Grange/135/115/21; the Smart Gourmette is available until August 21 at the Willowvale event:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Midnight%20Island/139/118/32.

Image Essentials is offering two new pose sets, Mellow V1 and Mellow V2 – V1 has Mellow 1-5, with mirror poses; V2 has Mellow 6-10, also with mirror poses.  As you can see, these poses are perfect for just lounging around and feeling…well, mellow!  I paired some of the poses with Dark Passions Koffin Nails’ first foray into makeup, Dark Japan, which is in the Pandora’s Box subscription box (the matching nails are included; they are below).  Although you’ll have to pay full price at the subscriber kiosk at Dark Passions, I can assure you, these offerings are well worth the cost!  I am sure many if not all of the other offerings will make you glad you bought it!  (find the kiosk here:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Spectacle/45/50/81).  The Image Essentials poses will only be available until August 31 at Square One event:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Discovery/112/51/13, so you better hurry!!

Dark Passions Koffin Nails is also offering two new nail designs for Genre’s latest round, one a fatpack gift and one that comes in both individual mesh nail appliers and as a fatpack of all of them.  They are so spooky cool!  First, the gift – Mark of the Pirate, a skull-and-crossbones design in black superimposed on multiple color fades in pink, beige and black…perfect for those times you want to enjoy the bold pirate spirit!  Then Dark Passions Koffin Nails is also offering Siren’s Claws, which features delicately shaded nails in pinks, greens, dark greens and black, so tempting, so lovely…until you get to the last offering in each set – is that blood on your nails??  Well, not terribly surprising – after all, the Siren was supposed to lure sailors to their doom…!  These will be available at Genre until August 11:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Analog%20Dog%20Hair/14/205/2954.

And last, but certainly not least – the promised Dark Japan nails that are also part of the Pandora’s Box subscription!  Bold horizontal stripes of color separate black and silver; the black part of the nails is either plain or with Japanese Kanji symbols on it.  Imagine wearing these with the makeup…won’t you be ready to go to the dark side!

If this has whetted your appetite for more amazing treats, here is the stores’ information:

It’s Hot! It’s Sexy! It’s Summer!!

I have some more fun and sexy fashion for you…but first, a fundraiser for a cause near and dear to my heart is going on, and my favorite nail fashion designer has created two amazing and gorgeous collections of nail art to help the cause!

Autism runs in my family, and although all of the people who have autism in my family are very high-functioning, there are still moments when I wonder if something could have helped to make their lives a little easier.  It hurts to see your child, niece or nephew, grandchild, etc. struggle to fit in, to understand, to comprehend.   When autism is even more severe, the effects on both the child and the parents are magnified even more.  That’s why I was thrilled to see Dark Passions Koffin Nails put out two gorgeous nail designs for the KT Creators Festival to benefit autism (July 14-30;  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rosemist%20Isle/196/127/23)!  Autism Awareness and Autism Awaremess II are the names of the two collections, and you will definitely want to own both of them!  Autism Awareness features the rainbow hearts design on different backgrounds, and Autism Awareness II is the ribbon and puzzle design.  Autism Awareness II even has two options on the hud to make the designs randomly appear on your nails – so each finger has a different design!  Please be sure to go to the event and help raise funds for autism research.

And now, we have a really gorgeous and seasonally-apropos offering from Petit Chat!  This is the Ring and Strings flipflop sandals, and these sandals are gorgeous!  Hud-driven, so you can adjust the ring on your toe, the strings across your instep, and the sole!  Color combinations galore!  These sandals are for The Hidden Chapter, July 14-30 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dreamlove/96/148/1236).  You really need these sandals to make your summertime outfits complete!

SEXY does not even begin to describe this round of InspirationSL!  Betty Boop, the gal who gave us the memorable “Boop-boop-de-doop” tagline, is the inspiration for this round – and the fashions are soooooo HOT!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

First up is iRResistible’s …well, irresistible retro fashions you’ll just HAVE to own!  The sailor outfit, which comes with a plethora of color options, includes the corset, skirt, garter with bow, shoes, hat and gloves!  You’ll certainly sex up any nautical events you go to with this outfit!  iRResistible is also offering a retro bathing suit outfit in three different color combos – vichy, gradient, and cherry – complete with earrings, shoes, hat, glasses and bag!  You’ll be so fashionable at the beach!  And then, for the fun of it, iRResistible is also offering lobster pumps!  Just adorable!

Spyralle is also offering Betty Bloomers, in red, black and blue – isn’t it just too cute?  Dots all over the bloomers and lace trim adds to the too-cuteness of this outfit.  Spyralle is also offering Bakelite bangles as a gift – Bakelite was a very popular plastic at the time and the first synthetic plastic created.  So not only gorgeous, but historically accurate!  You can get the Spyralle and iRResistible offerings at InspirationSL  (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rayne%20and%20PetitChat/10/128/1510).  Hurry – this may be a long-running event but it will eventually end…!

Happy Shopping!

Dream(ing) in gorgeous jammies, undies, and cool nails!

Today’s blog has pretty much the same theme – sleep and dream!  With pajamas from Blossom, slippers from S0H0E, and undies from Le Fashion Whore, not to mention props and poses from Image Essentials and nails from Dark Passions, it’s definitely a dreamy post!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

First off are the adorable Katy pajamas from Blossom, which have a hud to change the top, ties and bottoms.  The bottoms can be changed to patterns or solid, and the top can be changed from solid to pattern to slogans.  The oh-so-cute slippers from S0H0E will caress your feet in fluffy comfort, with the fleecy fabric lined with more fluffy fleece and the most adorable pompons on the end of the ties.  They also come with a hud to change colors.  But maybe you prefer to sleep in undies; what then?  Well, Le Fashion Whore has you covered with the Tyler bra and panties – sexy and so nice for those hot evenings!  I used a bed from Stockholm & Lima’s Elemental collection and 5 each regular and mirror poses from Image Essentials’ Batter Up V1 (V2 has the same poses made for the male avi).  For some totally inexplicable reason I spaced using the included  baseball bats for each pose, but if you can imagine a bat in my hands, you can see these poses would look even more cute than they do in the pictures!  Katy pajamas, S0H0E slippers, and Tyler lingerie are all available at Twe12ve event, from July 10-31:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brewery/79/200/21  and the poses are at Designer  Event, July 5-31:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Corrupted%20Innocence/223/57/23.

Also at Twe12ve event is this adorable prop form Image Essentials – clouds, stars, and the word “dream” form a completely gorgeous backdrop to five amazing poses!  The poses can be accessed by clicking on the prop – a menu pops up to give you options.  What a perfect prop for your pictures!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And in keeping with the overall nocturnal theme, Dark Passions Koffin Nails has two nail art offerings that are just amazing!  First is Endless night, a very Goth-y set with a cross in three patterns:  full cross fading into the tips, half-cross fading into the tips, and a cross outline.  The other pattern, French Ombre, has either metallic bases fading into white tips, or metallic bases fading into dark tips.  Either way, you’re going to look smashing!  Both sets are available at Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly from July 10-31: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Down%20Under/218/36/2.

PS:  Here are the poses with the bats; I may not be always on the ball, but eventually I do hit a homer!  (and yes, you may feel free to groan about those puns :P)

A Midsummer Enchantment with Fun on the Beach!

As I am enjoying all the lovely perks of summer, such as warmer weather and lots of fresh fruits in the stores, I’m also loving the great bargains on summertime fashions!  And below I’ve got more summertime awesomeness, including an event dedicated to the celebration of the summer solstice…so here we go!

First, Dark Passions Koffin Nails has a mainstore & marketplace release! Bcreative Wilde made it after a request from a store shopper to have an american set for the 4th of July.  And if you get the nails at the main store you can get 20% off!  There’s six different styles, from grunge to brand-new to monochrome flags.  So when you go see those fireworks out there, you’ll have the nails for the celebration!  And since summertime is impossibly hot where I live, I’m also modeling  a great bikini and really adorable sandals.  The ‘Natasha’ Sandals are S0H0E’s  exclusive item for the Virtual Secret Sales Room Event (from 1st to 20th July; S L U R L – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Phoenix%20in%20Flames/250/160/21 and F L I C K R – https://www.flickr.com/groups/3607830@N21/).  These sandals come in 15 colors via hud, with adorable chains and flowers in metal adorning the sandals.  They fit Belleza, Maitreya & Slink Flat Feet.  And the tres chic ruffled Isabelle bikini, from Le Fashion Whore, comes with a hud as well so you can change the individual parts to make it look as if you have dozens of bikinis!  Sexy and just gorgeous!  This bikini is also available at the Virtual Secret Sales Room – twice the awesome fun!

Midsummer Enchantment is the event I also blog for; I really adore the ways people interpret summer solstice fashion!  First, though, I want to blog Dark Passions Koffin Nails’ offering for the Darkness  Chamber Fair, July 1 – July 22, 2017  (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Secret%20Chamber/142/58/651).  The nails have several color options on a bed of black and a black pentacle on top.  Glossy and so gorgeous!  Comes in Omega, Slink or Matreya appliers or a fatpack of all three!

Now, the rest of the items being blogged are part of the Midsummer Enchantment event, from June 21 – July 9 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Spectacle/45/50/81).  And as you can see, the looks range from powerful to sultry – as all women should look!  Paper Moon has a collection of dresses and masks for those midsummer masquerade parties, and a collection of flowery wreaths that also enhance the outfit.  1313 Mockingbird Lane offers the midriff-baring Malifae set of dresses, horns and wings;  Senzafine offers the Melianthe gown in glittery, shimmery tones that can be changed by a hud and pair nicely with BOD’s Melanthe gloves.  Lastly but so very not least, TLB offers the low-cut, sexy Bella dress that I paired with the Xanse crown, both of which have huds to modify the outfit your way.  Best hurry – July 9 can creep up on you!

In the good old summertime…

Oh I love summer … in a theoretical sense.  I mean, real summer is heat, humidity, bugs of all kinds, more heat, more humidity, more bugs … but I think you get the picture!  However, summer items and decor – Oh, I adore that!  Summer-themed fashion – even better!

So I am absolutely thrilled to present some summertime fashions and fun from some of my favorite designers!  I have nail polishes from Dark Passions Koffin Nails, some jewlery from Petit Chat, and some poses from Image Essentials!

What’s more, I am wearing an utterly fantastic outfit from MadPea, who is having a fabulous summer hunt; you can collect shells, which gets you points you can redeem for stunning unisex summertime prizes!  To find out more, go here:  http://www.madpeagames.com/summer-hunt/

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

First, the GothNIC bento poses – and a more perfect collection of summertime poses I’ve not seen!  I especially love the crouching ones, as if one was looking for the perfect shell on the beach, or the perfect flower in the meadow.   This set of 5 poses plus mirrors is normally $300L for the set of 10 poses, but for the Designer Circle event, is discounted for $200L  Designer Circle runs from June 25 to July 8th:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tanami%20Bay/149/165/22

and of course, if you want more fabulous poses, including Bento, you can go here:

Petit Chat, the next designer on the list, has a gorgeous, fantastic gatcha set, Sea Stuffs, which is perfect for summertime, beachtime fun!  Pearls, shells, and starfish are combined in many gorgeous ways, from chokers to flipflops and even decor!  Some of the items even have huds to change texture for even more matching-your-outfit fun!  Here is a poster showing the items; I’m also wearing the items in some of the pictures above:

The third designer is one of my total fave nail designers!  She does incredible artwork on each set of nails she puts out, and you’ll definitely see what I mean with the three sets she made for Mid Summer Enchantment, an event I also blog for.  It runs from June 21 – July 9:

I had already blogged about one of the sets, Roses are Forever, in this blog post: https://fashionisfun655.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/ooooh-romantic-and-glossy-hot-nails/

but there’s two more sets to add to the marvelous mix!  Enchanted Masquerade is a gorgeous set of darker jewel tones with what looks like a lacy mask stretched across the center of the nail – very much like a Venetian mask in an elaborate rococo masquerade!  Ornate ombre has shadings of each color from light to dark and intricate filigree at either the bed or tip ends.  And you will get these amazing gorgeous  sets at the event price of 90L for Singles in Slink, Maitreya & Omega appliers; FatPack at 218L – all prices 25% off!  All additional Fatpacks at the event are 40% off as well!  You can see them here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/darkpassions/
