Hair and burlesque and freebies, oh my!

I’ve always had a love for burlesque; it’s just so sassy and uninhibited!  And when I saw that {LBB} had come out with a burlesque-inspired dress and shoes outfit, I was beyond excited!  Inspired by Christine Aguilera’s character in the movie Burlesque, this outfit is sexxxy and yet something you could wear everyday.  I decided to take some pictures with some burlesque props I happen to have in my inventory … somehow … !  The top, skirt and shoes come with a hud to change colors and can be found at the {LBB} main store:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Everstream/244/102/22; for more info click on these links:

I’d hurry, if I were you – nothing lasts forever, so make sure you get yours today!  ‘Cause after all – when life gives you grapes, grab a basket, put up a chalkboard, get into your fave villain outfit, and go take over the world!

At least, figuratively speaking…!

{LBB}, Clueless’ Cher, and the Back-to-school time of the year!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s been back-to-school time where I live RL for a couple of weeks now, but the excitement and dread of a new school year is something I remember very well.  So when I saw {LBB} La Bella Boutique’s new offering, the Cher Clueless Gacha, it took me back to that time in my life.  Not that I was as wealthy as Cher, but I did get a few new clothes, and I would look forward with a mixture of emotions to what would happen the next year.  So I decided to show this gacha with a few pictures of Cher leaving her house to go to school – very color-coordinated and chic!  In some of the pictures, she is carrying a bag; in others she’s talking on her cell phone.  The phone is a special that can crop up after so many pulls; commons are the Chique Bag, Cher tops/bottoms, and Cher stockings & shoes in only one color/pattern; rares are either the yellow outfit with black shoes (not available in commons) or the “As If” bag; ultrarare is the full outfit plus Chique Bag & 10-color hud.  Whether you are going back to school, or just wanting to look like a million, this gacha is perfect for you!  $50L/pull, you can find this gacha at the mainstore:   LM:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Everstream/174/215/3001 or check out Bella’s other great items at these links:
