Envious Desires in the Tropics

Envious Desires released this hot little tank and skirt duo and it's easily become a favorite saved outfit in my inventory. Three saved outfits, to be accurate, because I can't decide which colors I like best. I doubt I'll ever be able to choose. They are all vibrant and tropical-juicy!

For our daring ladies, the tanks come with a SHEER option. And yes, they are seductively sheer. Perhaps one for day, the other for evening with your special person, hmm? 
I paired the summery outfits with Glow Designs Aloha Heels for Slink High. Take a trip to the store to see all the lovely color combinations...so in style for summer fashions.
Here is an up close shot of Pulcino's Poisoned Apple Applier for Slink Nails. Rich, vibrant colors!

One Night With You

One night with you
One dream come true
One love no man can deny
The good in your eye
One life undone
One song unsung
My world of fire and ice
Become paradise
Elysium come true in loving you
One angel of man
Giving me wings to a promised land
Leaving the world behind
One night with you
One sky come blue
One night no rhymes can reveal
The heaven I feel
Elysium come true in loving you
One Night With You,
Gino Vannelli

I Have Nothing To Wear!

Have you ever looked at your wardrobe, for a very long time, and realized, "I have nothing to wear!"
You turn, wearing Flippant's Beach Bum GROUP GIFT outfit, and face your significant other. They can't help but notice your sad expression (and your not-so-subliminal message), and exclaim, "Why, we must take you shopping!" 
Outwardly, you're thankfully brushing away tears.  But inwardly, you look like this because you're thinking, "Yeah, it worked!"

You'll be begging prettily in this sexy little get-up too! Your significant other won't even care that you're outrageously manipulating because you're just so cute while doing it. ;)

My First Tattoo

On June 1st, the Olala Fashion Event returns! Here are two preview goodies to share with you in this post, along with some other great releases. Topping the bill, since it's a surprising item to find featured on Laura's Lair, is this tattoo by Black Butterflii. My first tattoo! I was very hesitant. But I love it! The design is simple yet elegant. Everyone has their own style, and tattoos, as with so many other things, are extremely personal. This is a lovely example of what Black Butterflii offers and it will be available at Olala.
All poses are by XXY and also available at Olala in June. The collection is called "I Am a Diva." How many of us have our diva moments? Or maybe more than moments? I Am A Diva poses look great at any angle. Pick these up for your diva times!
My tank is by Virtual Diva. I really like this one - the texture and colors prompt a vintage-to-modern style. It's cropped in the front for cute belly exposure and longer in the back. The back edge has a nice preparatory bottom curve so it molds over these brand-new NoName jeans instead of issues wearing the pieces together. NoName Tara jeans come with a Hud for 6 different color options, making them a fine option to grab for many different looks.
Stars! presents depicted jewelry in an Earth Stones set. Bet you can't pick just one color set! This hairstyle is by Asset, called Consuelo. The item includes small flowers up top, and a larger array in the back, and yes, there's a colorchange Hud.
It's shoe shopping time! Glow Designs created my Straps Heels Crystal. Price is 99Ls each, or 199Ls for the fatpack, in a promo just on Marketplace. Direct link to Marketplace item HERE!
Featured is another pretty color on the Hud of Tashi Spring Slink Nails. Very springlike, very feminine, time to go get it!
Happy shopping!

Dream Girl 0615 1

Dream Girl, by Carl Sandburg

You will come one day in a waver of love,
Tender as dew, impetuous as rain,
The tan of the sun will be on your skin,
The purr of the breeze in your murmuring speech,
You will pose with a hill-flower grace.
You will come, with your slim, expressive arms,
A poise of the head no sculptor has caught
And nuances spoken with shoulder and neck,
Your face in a pass-and-repass of moods
As many as skies in delicate change
Of cloud and blue and flimmering sun.
You may not come, O girl of a dream,
We may but pass as the world goes by
And take from a look of eyes into eyes,
A film of hope and a memoried day.

Silver Lady

Come on Silver Lady take my word
I won't run out on you again believe me
Oh I've seen the light
It's just one more night without you
Here I am a million miles away from home
The Indiana wind and rain cut through me
I'm lost and alone
Chilled to the bone
Silver lady
(Excerpt) Silver Lady, by David Soul

Buckle Up By Flippant

Behind every Second Life Fashion item I review, there is a movie quote or song lyric floating around in my head by word association. They don't always make immediate sense to others, since you're not swimming around in my head! (Probably a very good thing, lol) 

This adorable summer bikini top and matching skirt are Flippant's new release, called Buckle Up. I immediately thought of an interesting Bette Davis quote from All About Eve, "Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy night." That is often misquoted as "....bumpy ride," by the way. Either way, I think if a gal wears this outfit, someone had definitely better buckle up because it will be a bumpy night in a good way!
Buckle Up in a complete outfit, including a Hud with four texture styles, 
the platform wedges for Slink High, and even a belly ring, for only 179Ls. 
Click the pics to enlarge for a better view.

The Dancing Girl

The tempo of the music grows
The dancing girl she spins and throws
Her vestment off with artful flair...
But oh, what's this? - oh grim despair...
Awakening brings the dream to close; 
The dancing girl gone into thin air!
