Down On The Boardwalk

A lovely day on New Brighton Pier…just one of those hot, hazy days of summer made for wandering around until you have to seek an air-conditioned sanctuary!

Disco Deals

Disco Deals has some great items out this round, and one of them is the lovely  mesh Fleur dress, Willow Caldera’s premiere creation.

This is a lovely dress and I plan on wearing it very often. The one thing I will mention is that the alpha doesn’t cover the entire chest area and my skin showed through even with the largest size. There’s an easy fix, though. I used an alpha layer designed for a tube top here and voila! Perfect. Another Disco Deals item is the Les Etoiles Brillent set from Dark Mouse. This set is so pretty and delicate and is available in gold, silver and copper options.

Serena

While a lot of the items available at the Festival of Sin are decidedly not my style, there are some gems to be found. I just adore the new Essences skin from Inka Mexicola, with it’s barely-there smattering of freckles and delicate bone structure visible  beneath the skin of the face and chest. I am wearing it as is here, but there is a variety of eyeshadows and lipsticks available as well. My fun, flirty, dress today is from Antonin1 at Carisma Creations. The subtle ruching on the body and the poofed skirt are the perfect accessory!

One thought on “Serena

    Great look! That is a very nice skin and I love how you’ve got the earring echoing the red shimmer of the dress.

Damson and Umber

 

I am fascinated by the colors and names people come up with for their designs in SL. When I received a copy of this adorable new Pout Block Dress in Damson from Babi Cham, I expected a lush, plummy color and was not disappointed. Now this does look plummy, doesn’t it?

Also, my day was considerably brightened to find out that Queue Marlowe had released some new hairstyles at a new location on the island called Point B. I am such a fan of Queue’s work—the texture and shine of the hair is startlingly realistic and natural-looking. This color is called raw umber and it is the exact color of dark, rich earth.

In the Red

There is so much great stuff coming out in SL right now that it is hard to keep up and blog everything I want to. Add to that the fact that I am still pretty new at this, and have a hard time making things look the way I want them too without a LOT of time and work. Yeah, not so much a great talent, here. But anyway, as I was looking through some group offerings I found this dress from Paris Metro. I always love the concept art on these gowns and this one is no exception—the gown is called Salsa, but it really makes me feel like a flamenco dancer. Smile

A bold dress needs bold accessories and I found them in this beautiful set from Dark Mouse. One thing I always appreciate about Mouse’s work is that there is always so much to look at—there’s nothing simple about this set.

The guitar is playing and my feet are stomping of their own accord, so see you later!
