Adorkably Elegant

Remember when I said I loved gorgeous ladylike dresses? Still true! When Eboni Khan of House of Hucci dropped this dress on me, I squealed in delight! Collaborating with Moo Money of Made By Moo Textures, they've created Noir Blanc For Trilogy. You guys really should check out the store, it's just wonderful! Look at my pretty pretty dress - Evening on the Town!

Review - Noir Blanc, Adorkable

The dress swirls and twirls [believe me, I've danced enough in it to know!], and I love the big bow on the waist. If you could see the entire ribbon, you'd see that it swoops across the back. The skirt is tea length, which is great because you get to see your shoes! The dress also comes with a fur stole to drape over one shoulder. It's just very elegant and very much in the 1940s theme for Trilogy!

We're posing on one of the newest props from Adorkable Poses - Reflection! It's so cute, and there are several poses in it so you can "mirror" your partner. My friend Rob1977 Moonites of FIR was nice enough to pose with me. He makes great male clothing, so check his store out while you're out shopping!

Speaking of shopping...I think I need to get some more done!

Today's Gaze - I'm Neutral

Sometimes you just want to wear a cute outfit and not have it mean anything other than, "Hey, I look nice today!" I'm a big fan of neutral colors - Beige, ivory, cream - so putting this look together was easy!

Review - Today's Gaze - Neutral, 1

Review - Today's Gaze - Neutral, 2

I found this fabulous little skirt called Ohana by Enchanty, a new to me store, last night and I just couldn't help but pick it up. There's kind of a dark "shadow" on the waistband that I wasn't terribly fond of, so I paired it up with one of the Essential tanks from Mischief because it's long and covered it up. This color is called Tuscany. I love those tanks, I just wear them all the time! Some cute Freedom Flops in beige from Surf Co., the new Giada hair from Truth [with the texture change headband], and my Elle skin in makeup #2 by Belleza, and I am in business! But of course, when you wear neutrals, you can add a really poppin' color, and I chose to do that with my favorite bracelets in the world, the Indra stacked bangles from Zaara. I have on the Kashiti bobble ring, also by Zaara, because it matches.

I'm using poses by a new store just opened up by my friend Isabeau Reinard called whole.lotta.rosie. Isabeau makes poses designed for the more curvy girls out there, but of course these poses work pretty well with more slender avatars as well. Although I'm fairly small, you'd be surprised how often my hands end up jammed into my hips! The mainstore opens after the Pose Fair concludes [which is today, if I'm not mistaken!] so keep an eye open! The SLurl I gave is for her booth at the fair.

Hmm...maybe I need to go take one more look around the Pose Fair!

Indyra Gets Me Ready For Spring!

More springtime goodness! Today's outfit comes from the new releases at Indyra Originals. I'm wearing the new Minerva dress and the new Porta Nova necklace. I actually have on the matching earrings, but you can't see them because of my hair. :)

Review - Indyra - Minerva dress

Review - Indyra - Porta Nova necklace

The Minerva dress comes with the empire waisted skirt and matching wide belt. Very hot this season! I'm wearing it in Turquoise, one of my favorite colors, but there are 10 colors available. This is the kind of dress that will take you well into autumn, especially if your autumns are as warm as mine generally are!

Now, I absolutely fell in love with this necklace! The Porta Nova is just so precious, and the jewel textures are wonderful! As you all well know, big oversized gems are quite in this season, and these completely fit the bill. The matching earrings are also stunning! The Porta Nova sets come in 11 different colors, with the classic pearl included in each set.

There are many other pretties at Indyra Originals, so you know what time it is - It's time to shop!

Hoppin' for Hopscotch!

Now that we're fully into the spring season, I'm always hunting out spring/summer pieces that are both cute and casual. My friend Chandni Khondji of Hopscotch made me totally jump for joy with her new Rosalie tops. Light, springy, and casual - totally me.

Review - Hopscotch - Rosalie, pink, babydoll

Review - Hopscotch - Rosalie, blue, skirt

The Rosalie tops are just adorable. They come with 2 different bottoms - a babydoll top and a skirt top. I guess you could wear the skirt part as just a dress, but there are no glitch pants, since this is a shirt, so don't forget panties. [Or do, and put a show, I guess.] I really like these shirts!

Rosalie comes in 4 colors and are $100L each, or you can get the fatpack for $350L. I'm also using poses by Hopscotch, too! There's lots to see at the store, so hop on over and check it out!

I'll put a spell on you...

Just yesterday I was thinking to myself, "Self, you just don't wear as many costumes as you used to a couple of years ago." Then here comes Deviance designer Surreal LeShelle with simply the most marvelous outfit - The Enchantress!

Review - Deviance - Enchantress

Review - Deviance - Enchantress, back

The Enchantress is so gorgeous, as you would expect from Deviance. And there are SO many options to this lovely outfit, I simply couldn't photograph them all. The skirt and collar have 4 different options each and you know how much I love options with my clothing. I'm wearing the skirt with both the skulls and beads, and in the first photo I'm wearing the cape with the collar and long cape, and as you can see in the second photo, I'm wearing the shorter cape with no collar. And the included staff is just awesome. I feel like I want to cast a spell on everyone around me! The shape I'm wearing is included in the package, too! Normally I don't wear other shapes, preferring to fit outfits to my shape, but I really liked this one. It's taller and bigger than my normal shape, but didn't make me feel like a glamazon, which is always a good thing.

I'm wearing the Enchantress in Midnight Blue in my pictures, but there are 15 beautiful colors available. A single outfit is $400L, a minipack of 3 colors is $800L, and you can multipack all 15 colors for $1800L. I think you'll agree with me that getting the big pack is truly the way to go with this, especially if you get a lot of use out of this type of outfit!

If you are a Deviance subscriber, you can get a special group gift - the Enchantress in teal! Why are you still reading? Go shopping!

Zaara yummies!

Oh, Zaara. How you tempt me. The newest line of lingerie, the Trikaya, makes me so so happy. I love gorgeous, ladylike lingerie and this fits the bill!

Review - Zaara - Trikaya, Ebony

Review - Zaara - Trikaya, Carmine

The high-waisted knickers are precious. It really makes your curves stand out! And if you look at the behind, it's high cut enough to let your tush show, but done in a way that is both sexy and modest. Plus, the sheer panel on the back shows just enough, but also leaves a little to the imagination. The bra is very well done. Simple, but with a little detail and the "double" straps on front. So cute!

The Trikaya comes in 6 colors for $225L each, or fatpack the Classic set or Jewels set [I'm wearing the Carmine and the Ebony from the Classic set, and there is one more color in that set] for $450L each set.

Get to Zaara - because you need undies! Oh, and men? There's some cute boxers out there for you, too!

Oh, you yummy pose sets!

Tomorrow the Pose Fair opens to the public! I have been by to see it already and oh gosh, if you love poses and're going to be in HEAVEN. I was almost squealing out loud while I was there!

Lots of pose/animation makers these days put together scenes and props for you to use for your photos. I really love it because it saves me from having to find my own scenes! Here are some that I've gotten from three of the Pose Fair vendors. The SLurls I'm using for the stores are the direct ones to their Pose Fair stalls. If you want to go to their mainstores, you'll just have to look them up. ;)

This one is called "My Point Of View" and is by Juxtapose. It's really cool, because you have LOTS of options for poses, city scene, and colors of the walls.

Review - Pose Fair - Juxtapose, Point Of View

This next one is by Olive Juice, and is called "Ball Pit." I think you can see why! It also has several different poses, which you just use a menu to find.

Review - Pose Fair - Olive Juice, Ball Pit

And this last one is by Adorkable Poses, and it's called "Girl's Only." So so cute! There are a few places to sit on this set, so you and your girlies can chill. I love it!

Review - Pose Fair - Adorkable, Girl's Only

The Pose Fair's chosen charity is Motivation, which helps out disabled people in low income countries. Very awesome deal. :)

Expect lag, expect crowds, but expect fun and poses!
