Based on Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2015 line, Zafair designer jonyaranda, brings the same bullfighter inspired designs into Second Life for all of us to enjoy. Many of us, myself included, don’t normally have access to top-of-the line designs from such design houses as Dolce & Gabbana and even if we did, our wallets might not be able to support that type of habit. In SL, however, fashion is far more affordable so let’s take advantage of it and enjoy the luxury.
The Zafair Toreador outfit, which comes in many colors, will be available at Tres Chic Event starting on May 17th so mark your calendars now.

Today, I’m showcasing some newness from Amarelo Manga. The Kira outfit has been out for a little while and I actually styled it up when it was released but as usual, my RL was too busy and I never snapped a piccy. So here it is along with a new cute dress called Vivi for the Rock Cafe Fair. The back of the Vivi Dress is cool with a cut-out pattern. You can see the back of it here. Both Kira and Vivi are so stylish in different ways and isn’t that why SL fashion is so awesome? Depending on our moods or our activities there’s always something to find to wear that’s suitable!
Happy Monday as we begin another work week and thanks for visiting my blog today.
I was at a store the other day when I heard barking and then saw a cute little dog standing next to someone. Sometimes, on a whim, you just HAVE to have something and this little doggie was it for me. He fit right in with my photos too.
As far as the topic of my post, I hate cleaning in general but yes, it’s time for me to start Spring Cleaning both in my RL and my inventory in SL. It’s amazing how much a person can accumulate in both lives. I just wish I could clean up with a click of a mouse in RL. haha
As soon as I wore the Rita dress from [VM] Vero Modero, I was transported in time to the days of big fancy cars, Hollywood dance clubs and Rita Hayworth. Sex wasn’t so blatantly displayed as it is today and sexiness and sensuality emanated from an individual rather than having to show off too much to prove it. In that respect, the Rita dress is fantastically alluring with its thigh-baring length on one side and it’s luxuriously draped pointed hem on the other. Transport yourself to this different time or another one, as Rita comes in different colors to stir up your own imagination.

Maybe it’s the onset of Spring that has me a flowery mood but nevertheless this is where my styling took me today. It could also have been all the wonderful Spring inspired items found at Collabor88 this round. Either way, it just feels good. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!

There are some things that you need to treat delicately and one of those things is any shoe created by Mayhem Seetan of Azoury.
Hands down, Azoury makes some of the most creative shoe designs in Second Life® but you can’t just ‘wear’ the shoes like you’d wear a pair of slippers. Your whole body needs to accept the fact that it’s being honored by wearing such different and distinct shoes. Everything has to be just right while wearing a pair of Azoury shoes, from your head down to your ankles, where the shoes begin to transform your feet. Just as each pair of Azoury shoes has it’s own personality, the clothing you choose to wear with the shoes should follow suit.
I knew all this when I recently bought my new pair of Azoury Flaunt shoes so I had to make sure that everything else I wore wouldn’t be upstaged by my shoes but, rather, work with them and compliment them. When I was done enveloping my body with Baiastice and GizzA, with what I thought was an appropriate homage to my new shoes, I breathed a sigh of relief that my mission was accomplished. My feet are happy and so am I.
One really good thing about being in Second Life® for as long as I have (or even longer) is that you accumulate some really cool items in your inventory that sort of just sit in there until an opportunity comes along when you can put them to good use. My shoes in today’s post, from Shoenique, are just one of those things. I can’t even tell you how long I’ve owned them but I’d never worn them until now. I never forgot I had them, though, and when I saw the Beetle jumper from Katat0nik at some event, I knew the shoes would be a perfect contrast with it.
One thing you can’t do in Second Life® is become stagnant no matter how long you’ve been a resident. You can’t just sit and wait around like some object in your inventory. This is especially true for those of us in the SL modeling community, whether you’re starting out as a model or you’ve been modeling for years, like I have. Everyday you should learn or try something new! I tried my hand at hair painting with today’s blog post picture and I think it came out okay. The more I do it, the better I’ll get (I hope). But again, I’ve tried something new and ventured into territory that has been a bit daunting for me in the past. Don’t be afraid to do the same, especially as the weekend rolls around and you have some extra time to devote to something you’ve been wanting to learn. At least try to do it after you’ve been to see the new Star Wars movie, lol. No matter what you do this weekend, have a good one and thanks for joining me on my blog today. ♥

I’m still trying different mesh heads even though I thought I was satisfied with the Lelutka head and I’d look no further. However, mesh heads (and bodies) are like potato chips – you can’t have just one! Am I right?
I still haven’t worn my Catwa head mainly because I’m not in love with the lips at all – they’re too upturned and perky and weirdly fake looking. The features on the Catwa head are marvelous and so many makeups and skins are being made for it, but I just can’t get past the lips, unfortunately.
In today’s post I’m wearing the LOGOAlex Mesh head. I almost didn’t buy it because, quite honestly, the store vendor picture for the LOGO mesh head kind of sucked and I thought I’d be throwing away my money. (Let this be a lesson in marketing to make sure your vendor ad pics are great if you want your buying public to buy without a second thought.) I’m glad I bought the head and while there are some features I especially like, such as the numerous expressions, there are more that frustrate me such as the fact that you have to attach a bunch of parts every time you want to wear the head and the HUD isn’t the easiest to understand. I realized last night that everything such as the hairbase, eyebrows, lips and freckles are all on 1 layer so if you want to change the color of one thing through the LOGO Hud, such as the lip color, you end up changing the color of everything on that layer. At least I get to wear all those things on the 1 layer unlike the Lelutka head. As with the Catwa head, you cannot wear system eyes with the LOGO head. You can wear system eyes with the Lelutka head.
I know I have a lot to still learn about the LOGO mesh head and if I put a question into the LOGO group chat, there are many who are willing to help. I’m just one of those people who likes to wait until absolutely necessary before I ask for help. I laughed to myself last night as I thought that mesh heads were like men. If you could just pick and choose those certain wonderful aspects of each to make the perfect “one” mesh head, life would certainly be grand.
There are such strides being made with the mesh heads and bodies but, after all is said and done, it seems to take far less time to get dressed wearing all system parts and just adding tattoos (aka the old-fashioned way). I guess I’m just lazy lol. Then again, I always get this way right after the holidays. It’s like a big sigh of relief that it’s over and now leave me alone to just rest! Hope all of you had a nice holiday and are having a well-deserved rest too.
