Look No. 75: Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful

"There's no other color more elegant, more bold, and more beautiful than black."
~ Anonymous ~












Hello again! Today I want to show  you a pair of sexy leggings and top from Blasphemic. They are sold separately but I promise...you will spend no more than 200 Lindens when you purchase both. Appliers for Omega, Slink Physique, Maitreya Lara, TMP Body, Belleza Venus are available for both top and leggings. For those of you who don't have any of the mesh bodies, you can wear both items; however, neither are mesh. Oh...and FYI...the fabulous eye and lip make up are also from Blashphemic. I highly recommend  you check out their main store (be sure to join their group) if you have not heard of them. I know you'll love their amazingly low prices too!

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 74: Gangsta Fabulous

"If you can't walk the walk, then don't talk the talk."
~ Anonymous ~













Infected's Skulls Tattoo in full

Have you been to the Gangsta Fair yet? If you have, did you stop by B Bos? If you didnt stop by B Bos or haven't been to the Gangsta Fair yet, then you need to stop by B Bos and pick up the awesome catsuit I'm wearing in this post. It's available in several colors and designs (see photograph below my style notes). If you're the kind of girl who likes to show off your curves, like I do, then this is the outfit for you. What I love about this catsuit is you don't need shoes because are a part of the outfit; if you wear mesh feet, be sure to take them off. I did use the my Maitreya mesh body with this catsuit and adjusted the buoyancy on my breasts and it fit perfectly! I did wear the alpha for the shoes. I was feeling a bit gangsta fabulous so I added B Bos's gun holster, a Gangta Fair exclusive. It is available for both men and women and also comes in several color options. Just FYI, the Gangsta Fair ends on May 15th.

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 73: The Long Sweet Goodbye

"Saying goodbye isn't the hard part,
it's what we leave behind that's tough."
~ Anonymous ~









On June 16, 2007, the SS Galaxy - Queen of the Sagittarian was inaugurated in Second Life. For those of you who don't know what the SS Galaxy is, it's a massive cruise ship that takes up three sims. It has wowed visitors for all these years. It was announced yesterday, that on May 3rd, the SS Galaxy will be retiring for good. If you haven't seen this SL treasure, please be sure to pay a visit. For this reason, I chose to use the ship as the backdrop for this post.

Today, I am bringing you a new release from Toxic Candy Couture. It's a pretty mesh dress called Kady and it's available in several pretty colors (see the photograph below my style notes). It is available for purchase at the main store and on Marketplace; however, do keep in mind, if you purchase it in-world, you will receive it at a discount.

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 72: Balloons

"Once you have flown, you will walk the earth
with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been,
and there you long to return."
~ Leonardo Da Vinci ~




















Hello again! I want to introduce you to my new sponsors, Pawell Authentic Clothing. They are new to Second Life having just opened their doors in February of this year. I discovered them on Flickr and liked what they had to offer, their great prices and the fact that they make clothes for mesh bodies. So here I am, one of their bloggers, ready to spread the word about their great clothing line.

In this post, I am wearing a pair of their pants called Jessy that is also available in black, teal and blue. Each pair of pants comes with a HUD where you can change the sheer black material with six other designs (please see the photograph below). I paired the pants with a cute sheer lace top by Black Swan and shoes by one of my favorite shoe designers, Moda. I topped the whole look off with hair by Moon that I purchased at the current round of N21.

If you are wondering about the backdrop of my photos above, I learned about an art installation by Cica Ghost called Balloons. It's a unique and surreal landscape of daisies, twisted buildings and alien-like people chasing and floating in the air by balloons. I highly recommend visiting it soon because I understand it's only open for a short time.

If you like the Jessy Pants by PaWell Authentic Clothing, please be sure to stop by their main store in-world (don't forget to join their group) or check them out on their Marketplace, Flickr and their store blog sites.

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 71: I've Been A Bad, Bad Girl

"Heaven help me for the way I am.
Save me from these evil deeds before I get them done.
I know tomorrow brings the consequences at hand
But I keep livin' this day like the next will never come."
 ~ Fiona Apple ~










I was wandering around SL the other day trying to find some inspiration for a post and ran into a girl wearing the hair I'm wearing in this post. I fell in love with it and I knew I had to put together an outfit that called for sexy urban chic because I remembered the pants that Toxic Candy Couture had just released and my "Bad Girl" shirt from B Bos. 

Oh! Speaking of B Bos, I should remind you that Thursday is the day  5 items are offered for 50 Lindens if you participate in their Treasure Hunt at their store!

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 70: A New Release By B Bos

"Make it simple but significant."
~ Don Draper ~












I am happy and excited to announce that I am officially a blogger for B Bos. It truly is an honor to be chosen as a blogger for such a fantastic designer who really has created, and continues to create, some amazing and great quality clothing. What's also fantastic about B Bos is their awesome prices. So this is my introductory post featuring a new release by B Bos.

The Rachel Pants is a sexy, high-waist, mesh pant with a studded, black, leather belt gracefully circling your waistline. For those of you who can't live without your mesh bodies, you'll be able to wear these pants; I tried it on with my Maitreya mesh body. As you can see from my photographs above, it really shows off your curves beautifully. It is available in 12 beautiful colors: red, marine (jeans), bleach (jeans), brown, white, black, bone, pink, grey, black (jeans), blue (jeans) and white (jeans). You can buy each color separately for 180 Lindens or a fatpack of all 12 colors for 1,700 Lindens (a savings of 460 Lindens should you buy all the colors separately). Each of the pants comes in the five standard mesh sizes and you will get two versions of the pants: one for heels and the other not for heels. A demo is available for you to try prior to purchase.

I decided to pair the pants with B Bos's Hox Vest; however, they do offer loads of other tops that will look fantastic with it. I did try the Hox Vest with my Maitreya body but there aren't enough alpha cuts in the underarm area to make it work. Although for some of you...you just may be a bit more craftier than I am and could possibly make it work. There is a demo available so you can try before you buy.

If this is your first introduction to B Bos, I highly recommend taking a stroll through their main store or checking them out on Marketplace, Flickr or Facebook. Don't forget to join their group!

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 69: Blasphemic's Eva Dress

"Some people look for a beautiful place...
Others make a place beautiful."
~ Hazrat Inavat Khan ~
















Today I want to introduce you to a store that is newish. I say it's "newish" because it's been around for about  four to five months but some of you may not have heard of it so it's new to you. It's called Blasphemic and they are "a shop for the darker fashion". They have mesh clothing and clothing for most of the mesh bodies (I always suggest trying on the demos to make sure it will work with your body).

The beautiful cocktail dress I'm wearing in this post is called Eva. It's a mesh; however, I am wearing it with my Maitreya mesh body so I will attest that it does work with this particular body.

If you like the "darker fashion", I highly recommend going to Blasphemic's in-world store and checking out what they offer. Join their group because the Eva dress is 25 percent off to all group members until Sunday, April 19th.

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 67: Toxic Candy Couture's Tavira Gown

"She walks in beauty, like the night of 
cloudless climes and starry skies;
and all that's best of dark and bright
meet in her aspect and her eyes.
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies"
~ Lord Byron ~


Tavira Gown in Beige




In this post I want to show you a new release by Toxic Candy Couture. It is a beautiful mesh gown called Tavira. I love this gown because it has a sophisticated sexiness with the deep-cut back. It is beautiful to look at with the flower design down the front and on the tail of the dress that makes it's way to the tail of the dress in the back. It truly is a work of art. This dress looks great on the dance floor and, I think, would be great as a bridesmaid's gown.

In the photograph above, I am wearing the beige gown; however, it is also available in rose and light blue. I have posted the photographs of these dresses below. You can purchase these dresses separately or in a 3-pack fatpack on Toxic Candy Couture's Marketplace site or at the main store; keep in mind, you will get it at a discount if you purchase it in-world.

Until next time...happy shopping!

Blog Notes
  1. You may have noticed I did not notate any shoes or feet in my style notes. That is because when wearing mesh gowns, I have found that not wearing feet or shoes makes the dress fall better at the bottom. Try it sometime...you'll see what I mean.
  2. The gown comes with a pearl choker with a long tail that falls down on the back but I chose not to wear it as the design in the back of the gown is gorgeous on its own.
  3. The dress can't be worn with mesh bodies as here aren't enough cuts in certain areas of the bodies' alpha.
  4. In the photographs below I am wearing:

Look No. 66: Toxic Candy Couture's Omale Shorts and Top Outfit

"Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself."

~ Coco Chanel ~


I decided to spend an afternoon at the family farm yesterday and I thought the perfect outfit would be this new, sexy, top and shorts by Toxic Candy Couture called Omale. It's mesh and comes in the usual 5 standard sizes and you can also purchase it in black if brown is not your color (see photo below my style notes). I paired it with some cute sandals by Pure Poison that I picked up at Fameshed a couple days ago and finished off the outfit with this gorgeous tattoo by Infected.

The Omale outfit is available on Marketplace but you get a discount if you go into Toxic Candy Couture's in-world store and purchase it there.

Until next time...happy shopping!
