Balancing RL and SL in the Pursuit of Fabulous Fashion

Previously posted @ Chasing Catalina.

So this morning I woke up and checked my messages and here came this message from Dakota, another student I’m in the Miss Virtual World Academy with. “Hey….did you get the information for the class today?”


*laughs and has a mild heart attack* 

So come to find out….I had a class today and just due to SL being SL….we found out about it this morning. So we’ve got six hours. No worries, right?

Not quite…..

There are two problems I realized right off the bat. The first, that I had work today. I found out about the class at 8:30 and had to be at work by 9. The second, that the class was at 3 p.m. SLT….and I work until 4 p.m. slt. In a word….


But, isn’t this all part of what we run into with balancing Second Life and First Life as we take on commitments inside of this virtual world? While real life always comes first and SL is a place to come for fun and relaxation, there is a point of honor in standing by our commitments. Luckily, serendipity was smiling on me.

Not only did Dakota reach out and shake me out of oblivion, but our mentor, Steele Sirnah, was online and just about to head to work as well. A panicked IM to him and we both messaged the instructor of the 106 class with a plea to help work out a way I’d be able to attend. And as a side note, Congrats, Steele!! The new COO of Miss Virtual World. Woo-hoo!

And back to the story at hand. So, another aspect of how fate was smiling on me today….just yesterday I went and explored the amazing store Ghee, a new find for me that has some incredible clothing, one dress of which I had blogged during the .PENUMBRA. fashion week. And as I’m exploring the racks, I’m noticing a beautiful trend of soft tones, a very gentle flowing feel to the clothes. Which tied in exactly with the theme of the challenge we received this morning!

The theme was “Luxe Lounge” and we were given a single texture with examples and a color palette. And the palette was perfectly aligned with Ghee’s collection. So while I had a total of about….45 minutes to style and pose my look today, I was less panicked because I had a viewpoint and a vision.

So pictured above, you see the beautiful suede wrapped dress from Ghee, which has such beautiful detailing along the bodice that it worked very well for my decision on not using too many accessories and foregoing a necklace. Another fun aspect of the gods taking pity on me, Ghee had these amazing shoes that went perfectly with this season’s collection and so it was just a choice of “fringe or strappy” and for this challenge, I went with the beautiful shoes with long fringe.

Studying the Luxe Lounge style, I noticed a few commonalities, including a lack of jewelry, bare necklines, loose hair, and a pale styling. So working to incorporate all of that, I also went very light on the makeup and even lightened my lashes to a brown rather than the dramatic black.

I  had a lot of fun doing this, even with the time crunch, and in the end came up with a look I was very proud of. And got in a full day of work as well. Woo-hoo!

Fabulous and sexy…

Nothing is thriftier than free, and if you can look fabulous while being thrifty, you’ve got it made! Currently at Fab Free Headquarters there is a full outfit from Total Eclipse absolutely FREE. This FREE gift includes a mesh button-down top and a pair of mesh bell-bottom jeans both in standard sizes with matching alphas. The top has an almost iridescent look to it, and with the right jewelry and shoes could really be dressed up or kept casual.

I chose to keep it somewhat casual and paired the outfit with another FREE gift. These blue and white polka-dot platforms are a FREE gift by M&M Incorporated. Currently they are available at the Thrift Shop event. I really like the cork look of these platforms, I think it makes them fun and summery looking. There’s no need to join a group, just head over to the Thrift Shop and pick them up at the M&M Incorporated stall.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

My friend Bonadea made this dress. I did not even ask for a free copy. As soon as I saw it, I had to get it. It comes with a mesh mini dress plus a flexi skirt for the formal gown look. You get two looks for 400L. I love the shade of purple the way the long skirt flows and that you really get two dresses in one!

I didn’t really style it so you could pay attention to the dress. I’m sure you can imagine lots of ways to complement the look.

The dress has the fabric texture of a nice, soft velvet or suede that falls snugly yet gracefully over your curves into a delicate narrow bell skirt that flows beautifully when you walk.

In the close up you can see the hand-painted flourish of perfect pansies in shades of purple and pink to complement the deep rich shade of royal purple.

The design is repeated on the back side which is a detail not all designers might think of. It’s a sexy, low lag mesh mini that will impress the rest of the room whether you are coming or going!

So put on your favorite heels. There are many shades of purple for matching convenience. (I hate it when it doesn’t look right unless your shoes are the exact shade of the color of your dress) Mix and match your jewelry add a touch of makeup and sexy hairdo and you are ready to dance the night away with your favorite people.


♥ A woman should be two things: Classy and Fabulous ♥

Hey loves,
Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend so far, I myself have been decorating with some pretties below.

A woman should be two things: Classy and Fabulous

 There’s quite a few events going on now, one being Uber and Pixel Mode took part in it again this month by releasing Sable, it’s a vanity set,  the chair includes 7 animations and 12 texture change options and the vanity table  is available in 3 versions, Black, Walnut and Antique White, I went for white and cream because well with having children in RL it’s almost impossible to have anything like that here without the kids getting their hands on it 😛.
Sadly I did not take any pictures using the animations, mainly because I wanted to show it off how it looks, however the animations are quite feminine , my favourite was the “brushing hair” one but you can play around with them of course.

Next are a few new items from Alouette, the standing mirror, room divider and book clock.
The book clock I found so fascinating because the clock works with RL time and rather than it just have text floating about it, the hands also change on the clock and you can choose from 8 different textures.

The room divider is available at The Neighbourhood, 8 fabrics to choose from also and you can add your own photo’s to it 😀

And finally, the standing mirror is new out at TLC – 8 wood textures to choose from with a land impact of 3.

Sorry for the quick post guys but I wanted to get this out to you :)
Happy shopping!

Warm Casuals

Hello there!  I logged in yesterday after a little absence and casually checked my Groups…omg*Cae*has the cutest Romantique Jewellery set for all her Groupies. I love it! (See the Group Join Link Below)

So I foraged around in my Inventory and created this mixed look.  The set really is stunning! If you join Cae* Group you are likely to get similarly gorgeous gifts!

Here the vendor pic which models the jewellery in more detail:

Cae Jewellery

Anyway….as I say, the look is a mix of old and new stuff I found in my inventory.  Here is how to get the look:

1. Join the Cae Group ($ 545 Join Fee. Don’t worry.  It really will be worth it!).  It is a fabulously exclusive Group. <33 Then collect the Romantique Set in the Group Notices.  Remember to check the Group regularly so you don’t miss out!   And of course, tell all your friends!! Shout it out from the roof tops if you must. 😀

2.  Run to Molichino and pick up the FLF item – you have to hurry though! Wear the Top only for now. The maxi skirt is great too…you can wear that another time  :)

3. Toodle over to Pixicat and pick up the Autumn Jeans Boots Combo.  Forget the demo for now.  Demo-ing is for wimps.  We ALL know Pixicat is awesome!

3. Find I  suitably fitting wig from your Inventory.  I chose this old fave Desire Lines  from Lamb.

4. Smooth on your fave skin…I chose Sia by Glam Affair. Try the ones at Collabor88!

5. My shape is my own but you can trial the one I made yesterday (shameless plug).  Try EMILY by :.:Fudge:.:

6.  Grab the Sapphire Eyes @ Mayfly (Group Gift) Super blue eyes!

Poses are Marukin (old ones)

Fabulous Cheat Days

Previously posted @ My Fashionista Heart.

Hey Loves!
Today is a short post because quite honestly I'm having a cheat day! I can eat whatever I want and feel guilt free about it! Writing this I'm eating a Dunkin Donut's doughnut and Iced Tea and after this who knows…pizza might be in my future 😀 After losing three pounds this week (long way to go but I'm optimistic) I think I need to not think about what I'm eating today so….yes in SL and RL…I'm having a cheat day.  

Since this is a short post I'd just like to say that one of my favorite designers has decided to hang up her designing hat. Buttery Toast has been a place of comfort and happiness for me since the day I found it and to watch it close it's doors is bittersweet. I'll miss the blogger's group banter, and the excitement of seeing what lovely Mama Toast has released but I know nothing but great things will follow Fayfay. She is a great person and Fayfay…as much as I don't want you to go I still wish nothing but the VERY best for you.
