Wild Eggplant

Now this one, this one I knocked out wayyy early. As soon as I saw that Eggplant was the next color for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, I knew what I wanted to do. It all started with the swipe of eye makeup from -DAMNED- , but the real jackpot find is the sleeves. They’re cupcakes. YES, cupcakes! As soon as I saw the Cupcake Sleeve tattoo from [Dead Carrot] I knew they had my name written all over them. The tattoo has a “sheer” option (not pictured) which is a lighter than the regular option, which I found to be darker but more vivid. Granted, to pull this look off I did have to take advantage of 2.5’s multi layering option with the tattoo layers.

I am digging the bustier from E R R A T I C. The prim add on has these great little studded details and it comes in several colors – including this shade.

Underneath Your Clothes

Have you ever wondered what she really wears under those suits? If it’s her, you know whatever it is it will be hot.. leaopard print slip, perhaps, or in this case, the Black Laced Panty Girdle from Deetalez. And honey, this is soooo not your grandmother’s panty girdle! Admittedly, I had no idea what to wear this with, I suppose a dress shirt might look hot, but ultimately I decided it needed nothing else. Not even a bra. It hits just under the breasts, and the overall look is pretty damn sexy.. so I’ve been told.

The issue with this garment (other than the boobless thing, but that’s not reeeealllly an issue) is that if you wear the jacket layer by itself, it’s crotchless. Okay, so throw on the pants or even the underpants layers, well, your wicked garden is covered up, but this slightly shaded section also shows up in the lace panel on the front from the midsection down (the back isn’t as noticeable). The solution is that you simply just have to wear the shirt layer or undershirt layer with either the pants or underpants layers to cover up and avoid the shadow. Granted, chances are he’s not really even going to notice. He’s probably going to end up just staring at your boobs. Which are indeed divine. But I digress, I love the cute prim bows at the hips that come along with this really quite unnecessary undergarment (because it’s SL, who really needs a panty girdle?).

Kept the other details simple, the black Lotus ring and bracelet from Mandala and the amazing heels from Pixel Mode. I swear, I love those things.. I should have just bought the fat pack.

So sweetheart, if he even has a hint about what’s underneath your clothes.. you know he’s definitely going to want to take you home.

Hot For Teacher

I found a super adorable dress on the Marketplace from Artilleri and had to stop by their Rockabilly inspired store and fell in love. It all started with a simple pair of glasses and as soon as I put them on, I knew I had to do a “Hot For Teacher” post. While I was there I picked up the fantastic pencil skirt which comes in several colors – but does do the whole skirt thing so a spare “skirt friendly” (aka tiny booty) shape comes in handy. I can’t say I’m a big fan of the whole skirt component in SL, but this one at least has a “slit” in the back so you don’t look completely ridiculous when you walk. (And I did love the little zipper accent!) I also found the cardi which also comes in several colors AND you have the option of plain or polkadots.. of course I went with the dots.

It’s ironic, the one piece that’s actually accenting the whole look is plain white – the blouse from Pink Outfitters. I went in looking for the sheer blouse, but found this instead and I found that I adored the tiny little button on the neck. Coordinating the look I went with the red rings and nails from Mandala (Buddah) – I found that even with small hands, the “size 20” seem to fit the best. The super fab heels are from Pixel mode – even though they’re scripted, I can TP with them (unlike some other brand of shoe). And because even teachers need to have a little fun.. not that the red nails and heels don’t count.. I threw in the star tattoos, even though I couldn’t find the store any longer (sorry guys!).

All in all, I think even I would be hot for teacher!

Wedding Whimsy

It’s insane. Those wedding gowns that literally cost over 5,000L. Considering all the other details, the location, the flowers, the hair, the bridesmaid dresses, etc. .. it is truly enough to drive a bride mad! Even worse if you’re on a shoestring budget, or at least want something.. let’s say.. reasonable. After working on Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color listing for this current week.. White… I found some super cute white dresses that made me think.. hmmmm.. I bet this would make a pretty ‘alternative’ wedding gown. So, I sat on it. I kept it, and I am now proud to present a few of my picks for my very own SL Wedding Whimsy … aka.. “Wedding Dresses” for 600L or Less!

I kept the hair, jewelry, and footwear (there is none!) simple. These gowns are perfect for that Spring/Summer Wedding and are all available on the Marketplace!

The basics:

Hair: lamb! 
Eyes: LAQ
Skin: LAQ ~ Elena [Nougat}
Cleaveage: LAQ ~ Cleavage enhancer v2 Tattoo layer [Nougat]
Jewelry: MANDALA

Dress 1:  Kyoot – Pretty White Dress $150L

At the lowest end of the price spectrum, this dress is wonderful. It comes with the cute headband, but could easily be switched out for a flower or more traditional veil.

 

Dress 2: salt. summer romance vintage dress $250L 

(*Note: The cute ‘sleeves’ are prim, so as long as your arms are down, you won’t look like you’re wearing garters.)

 

Dress 3: {mon tissu} Crossroads Maxi Dress in White $465L

(note: This dress comes with a flexi skirt option and an alpha layer if you go with the non flexible prim skirt that makes your feet go MIA. Shoes with feet might come in handy.. unless you really want to float on air. )

 

Dress 4:  Paper Couture Crossroads Gown $600L

 (*Note: This does have the whole ‘skirt’ thing going on.. so a little butt editing is necessary to make it look “normal.”)

 


Ecru you, too

Perhaps I’m a slacker, coming in at the last day of the week for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge… but I’m in love. It’s true. Yes, Pixel Mode got me right here.. right in the heart with these new Lady T: Gloss heels (in Sunshine)! At first, it was simply lust, what got me hook, line and sinker? The skin tone matching notecard that came by clicking on that handy dandy little ‘HELP’ button! Someone took a helluvah lot of time to go through some of the larger skin brands and provide a cheat sheet that will help you perfectly match your ‘feet’ to the rest of your body and believe you me, that attention to detail.. to knowing what I need before I know I need it? That’s what got me. So yes, I am in love. You should definitely fall in love, too.

Love is a Battlefield

With Valentine’s Day just around the corned, it may be time to break out the arsenal. Sometimes you have to get down, dirty, and bloody, in order to win a heart, lose a heart, cut out a heart, and whatever else that comes along. It’s not always pretty, it’s not always perfect, sometimes it gets down right messy. Sometimes Love really is a Battlefield.

My Little China Doll

 

Chinese New Year is upon us, lunar festivals, raving rabbits.. well, perhaps at least those born in this year and 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999. In case you weren’t aware.. people born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.

Oh well, guess this monkey isn’t exactly rabbit material. That’s quite alright, because I can at least enjoy a few mandarin inspired items today like this Mandarin top from ChiChi of London. There are three different “complete avatar looks” to pick from, but I liked the happiness of the orange color. Matched up with a pair of super cute little ballet flats from MB, the dark denim capris from [Cynful] & Co. (underwear layer.. for some reason and maybe it’s just me, the pants layer makes me have cankles.. oy), the leafy, almost spring look of the Shaka necklace from MANDALA, and the fun Frankie hair from Truth and I have a look that gets me out of the wintery funk and ready for the New Year (Chinese Edition).

Ain’t She Sweet

 

After all that hairspray and make-up, I needed something a tad more demure to cleanse my fashion palate. So, I went to the comforting colors of gray and pink. All I could think about when I put this on was the tune my grandfather use to sing when he played the piano… Ain’t she sweet? See her walking down that street. Yes I ask you very confidentially, ain’t she sweet?
