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!
