Floral Tea and Me

I dragged some more fun stuff home to Laura's Lair! The furniture is by %Percent for the Gachapalooosa Event, called The Marsha Gacha, Included below is a key including all the pieces. Pulls at the event are only 25Ls each! What a fun collection; invite your friends, offer some tea and a seat, and enjoy some fun banter and great music. The lights come on and the neon sign lights up for great atmosphere!

I'm wearing a beautiful hairstyle by rezology called Swept Up Elegance. I see why this style is so popular! The texturing is so artfully done it looks real. See another pic below to get an idea of the prettiness of the back of the hairstyle too.

My jewelry is by Chop Zuey which has become an instant fave for me. The collection is called Heart & Soul, and includes the necklace, earrings and bracelet with texture change! An ad pic is included below so you can visualize the many different looks you can create. This is seriously an adorable gift. Ladies, show your sweetie and say "pretty please?"

If anyone has not been compelled by my mantra about Mayfly Eyes yet, I'll say it again. The color I'm wearing is Deep Lake, and it's the current Group Gift. These are not demos, no-no, it's actually a pair of free eyes with full functionality. Try 'em, you'll like 'em!

I'm wearing Lined Dusky Polish by Zoz, available now at the Cosmolitan Event. There are nine different colors from which to choose on the varying nail huds. I love my Zoz nails; do you love yours too?

My sexy-cute dress and heels are by Rowena's Designs, named Laelia. These are offered for the Fifty5 Thursday sale - meaning go, go now! Great price! Both come with colorchange huds. The dress has multiple fit options for Classic and Mesh Bodies. Next is a pic of the back of the dress showing the belt and lacing.

The top, belt, skirt and laces change color independently for lots of different looks. See below for an ad pic and don't just dream what it could look like, go get it! :-)

The matching Laelia heels are for Slink High feet, and colorchange to match your dress selections. I love the style!

My Retreat

Some evenings, wouldn't a retreat be nice? Away from responsibilities, just some good ole "me" time. Image Essentials has created a build with poses to do just that! It's called My Retreat. All poses here plus more are included! My Retreat is available at the Black Fashion Fair, and I haven't given you much time to get it since the fair ends tomorrow. :-O

My lovely braided tresses are called Frostbite by Rezology! The hairstyle was inspired by oh, some adorable animated movie. ;) Frostbite is rigged mesh and the style can go from casual to elegant with the click of an inventory finger. I particularly like it because you can easily see jewelry and the front of an outfit as well as the back, but you still have long, luxurious hair. The texturing is gorgeous!

Ready for one of my usual comments? Okay....Mayfly Eyes. Nuff said.

My exquisite jewelry is by Zuri Jewelry, called the Czarina V1 Elite Collection. The set consists of necklace, earrings and bracelets and includes extensive colorchange menus! This collection will go with any colors you desire.

My fantastically sensual and elegant gown is by Sweet Intoxication, called Angel, in Black. You can get your own Angel gown but hurry; this is part of the Fame & Fortune Hunt for 1L !! It comes in standard mesh sizes. I'm wearing my Maitreya body and the alphas worked just right.

Now to relax in My Retreat...go get yours!

Missing my Lovebird

Lovebirds are two of a pair, happy to be together, chirping their sweet melodies in harmony. My sweetie has been out of town and I'm sure missing him! He'll be home soon though, I just need to wait. Until then, I'll enjoy the adorable antics of my lovebirds who don't seem to mind their cage at all because they're together.

Babe in Total Control of Herself

[CCV] has released this HOT applier dress with matching chain platforms. I'm using the modesty pasties included, but you don't have to if you don't want to. ;)  The set is called B*tch Upper Class, which obviously stands for "Babe in Total Control of Herself."

The skirt panel is slightly sheer and more attention getting. When you turn to walk away from your lover, you WILL be followed! (Click to Enlarge Pics)

Check out this designer's store, and while there, pick up the green dress; it's the group gift! Now, promise you aren't planning on giving someone a heart attack when you wear this.

Get Your Sexy On

Presenting sexy from my outfit all the way to skin deep! Have you been to this round of the Ross Event yet? You'd better go, there's only a few more days.

Designers at the Ross Event shown in this post are: Dark of the Moon Body Shop, LS / Store, and Splendore.

Also featured are Mayfly Eyes, as almost always (by the way, there's a new add-on Hud available at the store, go check it out!), and Virtual Diva's original mesh Club Jewelry Set.

I still have an identity crisis when not wearing my Lelutka Head. But I screwed on my Catwa Gwen Head to show you this marvelous skin by Dark of the Moon Body Shop. What do you think? I'm quite impressed with it's beauty and exquisite skin tone.

I'm A Swankie Girl

That's all there is to it - I'm a Swankie Girl. I'll make no excuses for the fact that I like nice things. But I'm a shrewd Swankie Girl. I like my nice things in Second Life to be at a great price to stretch my lindens...for more nice things! As a blogger, I love sharing with you special finds, those things that will make your eyes light up too -and- save you lindens. My mission is easy when I share creations waiting for us at the Swank Event. In this post are fantastic items from four designers currently in the event!

My dress, fur stole and matching hat are by Dot-Be Fashion, named Martine. Martine is available in six different textures, all of them so different and beautiful it was tough to pick which one to share. The dress has a wide variety of fits from this clever designer; even the stole has different sizes. Remember at the beginning of mesh offerings when we had to "cookie cutter" ourselves into our clothes? Not so any more!

My heels are by Ch's Designs and they are called Ibel. Here is another clever designer; these heels are accompanied by a fifteen-color Hud! Again, the variety of wear options for different feet is impressive - Slink High, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP, N-Core. We Swankie Girls like pretty heels with options, for a pretty price! Yes, we want it all...and we CAN have it all. 

Poses are by PosESioN from the Adelin set featured now at the Swank Event. Are you a little dramatic with a lot of flair? Of course, that's part of what makes a Swankie Girl! You'll love these poses.

My Slink Nail Polish is by .::LUNA::. Body Art. A pic of the color hud is included below. Swankie Girls do like matchy-matchy, and these nail colors/designs match this outfit perfectly!

Make Me A Dirty Girl

Just add some mud and grease to make me a dirty girl. Did you think this post was going in another direction? Maybe next time. Right now, got mah smokes, got mah lighter, and got mah tattoo. A girl's gotta believe in things, right? Off I go to work on that truck engine.

I'm wearing I'piteme's Dirty Girl Outfit which is part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut - Round 14. With so many fits and applier/layers for Classic and Mesh Bodies, I'piteme has got your needs covered. Now just how naughty/sexy is this? I think you'll have lots of fun with this outfit. I particularly like the tattoo - nice design and placement is just below the navel. 

Psst. Mayfly Eyes. I repeateth myself for good reason. Go try them!

Poses used are by Nantra - the set is called Effortless, available at The Liaison Collaborative. This is an excellent set for pic posing. The set name is appropriate; they convey a natural and effortless beauty of movement, even for a girl mechanic!

Yellow is The Sun

Indoors or out, yellow captures the sunshine and allows you to take it with you, wherever you go. It is particularly striking with black. This Classic or Applier outfit by !Bougie! proves the statement. This is Latrice, a Halter Top and Studded Denim Shorts combo available at the Phat Fashion Fair. There are more colors available if yellow doesn't catch your fancy. Also by !Bougie! are the SLAY spiked sunglasses in black, part of !Bougie!'s gacha set at the fair.

Zoz delights us with more matching lipstick and nail polish. These sets are Noir Flair offered now at the Black Fashion Fair. You'll get rave reviews when you flash these accessories, so be as expressive as you want with lots of notice!
