Happy Labor Day, America!

For Americans, Labor Day is a day to celebrate the economic and social contributions of workers.  I don’t know much more about it except that when I was a kid it always meant a day off school which was awesome!

This blog post really came out of nowhere when I was texture shopping at Distressed, located on the Eternidad sim, and saw the adorable landscaping.  As I looked out across the field I spotted this swingset and hopped on in exactly what I was wearing for a photo.  Then I thought I may as well blog it since I had the photo and pretty cute look already done.

The Magic of Mesh <333

I was nervous about mesh, I’ll be honest.  Tonight with the newest release from Janie Marlow, I’ve fallen in love with mesh.  How incredible is it that we won’t have sculpts going through our little avi bodies anymore! I’m totally siked!

Shangri La Style 8-23-2011

In order to see mesh items properly you need to be on the latest LL released Beta viewer.  Viewer 3!  Don’t worry, it isn’t so bad! I promise you won’t melt or anything by logging on an LL viewer.  You can read more about mesh on the Second Life Blog http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld/Mesh-goes-gridwide-Create-sell-buy-amp-enjoy-all-new-things-in/ba-p/1055107

50L Friday @ BC & TOSL @ Blacklace

I’m not one for self promotion very often but after I completed these shoes for an outfit I created for my brand, Baby Couture, I just had to style them with the TOSL item available this week at Blacklace.

The shoes are available today only for just 50L at Baby Couture and the Blacklace set will be available for this week at the cost of 199L

The panties that come with the set make for a perfect evening look when the lights go down and you’re cuddled up with that special someone.  I’ve paired the evening look with some hot pink Saffron Pumps from Lelutka.  These shoes really are classic and if you go to the store you’ll see they come in a wide array of colors both bold and soft colors.

ADDICTed to Bloom Dolls 6/12/2011

I was part of the lag that hit Surf Co. when the lovely Emma Gilmour released these adorable big headed dolls that we’ve come to love called Bloom Dolls.  I immediately purchased the one I thought was best fitting to me before dragging my other two blog partners over to get one as well for a future joint post.

Another wonderful person in my life, Kianna Noel, design of ADDICT has released these really cute dresses in a variety of colors called Luna.  I wanted to share the dress with you but I couldn’t pull it off on *me* so I thought it’d be a good time to bring out my Bloom Doll and pretty her up.  Here are the results.

Grixdale Newness! June 11th

This wonderful little dress from Grixdale will be released tomorrow for sale. The dress comes with two options. One (shown below) with a stripe down the middle and one without. I love the dress, it fits beautifully and the prims don’t have many problems going into your body when worn.

New Truth Hair 6/10/11

Pretty casual look here. I was hanging with one of my besties, Icey and we decided to do a quick picture together. I am wearing one of the brand new Truth hairs just released today. This one is called Danni, and comes with a streak option as well. Also shown one of the Fifty Linden Friday goodies available all day for only 50L. These vibrant blue eyes from Hoot were a steal. Hoot has 4 color options available so hurry before the day ends they will no longer be 50L. Thank you to Icemocolo Voom for taking this pretty picture of us for the blog.

California Girls

This look reminds me entirely of home. I live not far from the beach, and most of the under 30 beach-goers dress a little something like this. I had the privilege of meeting the lovely Ms. Tyr Rozenblum of Grixdale, and I cannot say enough good things about her. She is a delightful human being. The skin and adorable little mini skirt shown here you will be able to find in her store, Grixdale. The skin is called Ren (shown in Honey skin tone) and went perfect for this tan beach babe look. Her “Lazy Denim Skirt” Shown below is by far my favorite mini skirt in SL. The prim attachment is modifiable and is made in two pieces, extremely easy to edit linked parts to make the front AND back pieces fit like a glove. The picture shown below was cropped, but not retouched in any way. The items are exactly as shown.

In other news… Action has become one of my new faves for Hair. All of their hairstyles include a headlock that will override your AO, so the hair will not go through your body. The hairs are also scripted to resize and many of them have colorable accessories or streaks to play around with. This wonderful summer top was also from Action and comes in a ton of cute styles. The prims come in more than one size and are also scripted to resize. They give your bust a boost too! The prim looks great with the shirt texture. Love it!

Summer Cuteness

Today’s look was a quick summery fresh look. I’m always a fan of girly with a touch of nerd-dom. Absolutely LOVE these glasses from Alphavillain. I picked them up during one of the Albero festivals and hadn’t ever really looked them over very closely, but they are adorable and unisex. The headband has been one of my favorite pieces for a long time. It is actually a gacha item from Tokidoki, but you can get the whole pack of colors for less than 200L. It’s an awesome buy and is small and simple to match with a variety of looks and hairstyles.

Impromptu – LOTD 6/1/2011

Shangri La Style 6-1-2011

It all started with the gorgeous maxi skirts from G Field.  Mariah showed up with the purple version, which prompted Vernice to get yellow version. Our new team member Katelynn (you will be seeing more of her soon) then proceeded to pull out the yellow version.  We all styled out skirts different ways according to our own personal styles and had an impromptu photoshoot in Vernice’s backyard. Impromptu photos sometimes make for the best pictures.
