Upstairs at Erics



Both classy and classic, some new releases (wait for it) are WINNERS!!!!!

From Bliensen + MaiTai for Genre, Trophies in bronze, gold and silver with a choice of two poses or as a rezzed prop.

From Lavian&Co BySam Upstairs at Erics (pretty much the longest style name I can remember LOL) which boasts a humongous amount of color tops available by hud as well as three colors of some superior jeans. Find these at On9.

Vanity Hair's Babydoll takes us back in time to ---- the early 60s maybe? Late 50s? Whatever the decade, the style is lots of fun! 

Just and up close and personal shot of these jeans which are pretty spectacular and have normal maps to add extra texture. The detailing is impressive.

Music in Me


I am a bit tardy telling you about this fun pose prop from WetCat. It burrowed WAY down in my objects folder and hid under some old newspapers. Well, "no" that's not the real story.

Anyway, much fun and a great item to add to your props collection. There is a couples version also! Find it at a brand new event, Epicene -- which Google tells me means, "having characteristics of both sexes or no characteristics of either sex; of indeterminate sex."   A new word for me. I love that!

The prop is eleven land impact and includes floating sheet music which is optional. And a couple of days after this shoot I found several objects named "headphones" in my Objects folder. I am pretty sure they came with the prop and likely with the pose above. That would have been super cute.  Note to Chic: "Pay attention!"

Fashion Credits:

/Wasabi Pills/ Thyra Mesh Hair available at Fantasy Faire (ends soon) with choices of many huds and a hud for changing the bindings. Very pretty for role play or everyday wear.

"mignon." - subculture jyoshi dress from a gacha at SaNaRae. There are various colors of dresses with brown leather belts as well as rare packs with hud with belt, buckle and dress color changes. Medium is the largest size. Sizes run true.

Dangerous Women


 People move in and out of our lives, sometimes they stay around for years, sometimes for minutes. There are roads not taken at every turn. Now and then we make a decision that leads us into new territory.Do men "like" dangerous women?  It seems that many do.The Lea Slip Dress from BAIASTICE is deceptively demure.  But ...add the coordinating garter and gun and that innocent facade vanishes.This month's theme is espionage :D.The dress is available in many colors, both pastel and jewel and comes both sheer (shown) and solid.The garter with gun comes in white, red and black -- left and right and is resizable.Find them both at COLLABOR88.From IONIC, unisex hair - Von Dita and Von Duke in various color huds. This one is from the Obsidian pack and has hints of other colors besides grayscale. Very striking. Be sure and check out the Ombres pack also! Available at On9.There are larger versions of these photos on my eclectic Flickr stream if you would like to see all the gorgeous detailing.  The sitting pose is from LAP and no longer available, but you can pick up the other poses shown (either singly or as a fatpack - mirror versions are available) from grafica at On9.Maitreya Mesh Body .LeLutka.Mesh Head-STELLA Mayfly Eyes Poses by: grafica and LAP (nla)[...]

Love Hurts


Yes, sometimes laughter turns to pain in the romance arena.

But we shouldn't give up on love.

Even if at times it feels like we are walking off a cliff.

On9 opens today at noon.  It is a somewhat romantic event, probably because the upcoming holiday is on our minds. With plenty of great releases including many for the guys, you WILL want to journey over.  Here are a few.

AMITIE ::: Die4Love poses with arrows
NIGHT DESIGN  [AR] Night Women Hoodie (also for guys with a variety of colors available). The tank is part of the one piece set.
NO.MATCH NO.BORDER hair with color change beanie.  For guys and gals.

I simply love this hair. I have been wearing it for days and even changed my profile photo :D.

My Used Skinny Jeans are from MYNX and include tiny and skinny cuffs which fit into some boots (very handy). Of course they will also be great with sandals and bare feet as the warmer months arrive (woot).

The detailing is really lovely. They will be seen in all their glory in an upcoming post with less warm attire *wink*.

Looking Towards Spring

Even though the calendar says it is still winter for me, I am looking towards Spring. Evening walks at twilight with no need for jackets or sweaters is one thing on my wish list.

On9 opens tomorrow at noon. The venue is packed full of beautiful things for your shopping pleasure. Featured here is one style of the  Breyanna dress from Wicca's Wardrobe. Iced coffee is the color; Rose Quartz and Summer the other two offerings.

My HAYSURIZA Eyewear Cat Compound glasses are adorable. They really make me smile! Both small and medium versions come in the pack along with a set of folded glasses to be held for poses.

Various styles of nail polish from alaskametro can definitely have you thinking of the beauty of the new season.  Coordinating eye makeup has you looking your best!  Various mesh body appliers are included in both sets; legacy eye makeup is in the pack.  Look for the MUSE collection.

You really need to check out this bench from WetCat. Not only is it super cute just sitting there, it is texture change for frame, cushion and pillows and has some GREAT couple's poses built in.

I am not th easiest to fit in the couple's pose category but not only do these fit, they are super natural looking!

Find the Noel Christmas Sofa (yes, most of us would call it a bench; it's a language thing *wink*) at Tres Chic!

Redheads and a Blanket

It is Arcade Day!  Well semi-officially anyway. From {what next} a big Home for the Holidays gacha with cuties like mailboxes, bikes and other homeware as well as the "I really need to win this" cottage.

The blanket pose prop, ::WetCat::&aGoose's "Shades of Winter",   is a release for Winter Trend which opens December 4 at 1 pm.  So mark those calendars!

Both prop style (6li) and riding bikes can be yours if you are lucky.

From flowey for The Arcade a big set of snuggly long johns for those cold nights. Many colors are available for you to find your favorite. Two rare food trays (dispensers) are definitely worth trying for. This is the eggnog version. LOVE LOVE LOVE eggnog!  Virtual eggnog is calorie free; a big bonus.

A Friday in Fall


New from top to toe, Sami agrees that it can't possibly be a "bad" Friday no matter what the calendar says.

In her mailbox this morning (not mine yet but it is a huge subscribo group) some outstanding hair from Truth. It uses the tiny color hud click through system and is filled with goodness.

A new SLFO group gift at !!! Karla Boutique !!!  -- Victoria Punk comes with a bolero jacket for colder mornings.  Find it near the landing point on an outside wall.

With many great choices for Fifty Linden Friday Sami chose to trade in the REIGN pumps she was wearing for a slightly more bad girl look (appropriate for today's attire). These beauties come for Slink and Belleza as well a Maitreya. Don't pass the vendor by; it is out front of the shop.

You can find the TRUCE set of poses (five with mirrors) on a Fifty Linden Friday special at Lalochezia. A try me on pose vendor is right near the purchase poster.

Happy Friday the Thirteenth.

At Home


When I purchased my mesh body at the beginning of the year, I faithfully went through my inventory and deleted all the clothes "it" could not wear. That of course left large gaps in my wardrobe -- including system layers.

Mesh is wonderful, but there are times when you REALLY need basics.  Enter this makes-ya-smile undies set from *Lacuna*, the Camille Gingham Lingerie. Legacy avatar garments are included of course as well as appliers for many mesh bodies and Lola.  Whatever your favorite color, you will likely find it in this fourteen hue release.

Find your favorites at My Attic!  I know that YOU know you can also wear the bra as a layer under jackets and overalls. We are SO smart.

Isla Gealach has been working her mouse and computer way too hard of late, producing some great Fall releases. I haven't been keeping up there are SO many!  This cute little Cheeky Pea Autumn Step Frame decor piece comes in three wood versions (this is dark) and weighs in at 1 land impact.  The lantern and frame duo is a separate piece and can be moved or unlinked to use elsewhere.

Look for it at My Attic also.

If your pose selection is low on what I have labeled as "stances", these Attic Poses (six in the set) from Label Motion may be just what you need to fill that void.

You guessed it, My Attic!

Dutchie's Animation Hud


Whether you are a role-player, a machinimatographer or simply like to look particularly "cool", there is a new fun tool in town. Dutchie's animation hud comes for gals and guys and in three versions. The basic version includes dances and lots of great activities and props.

A tiny hud attaches to the bottom of your screen. Clicking that brings up a menu. My favorites are the social and fun sections with activities.  Adult versions can be had as well as adult role play which includes Gor and Sub animations.

Instructions are included so that you can add your own animation sets. That sounds like a great plan and not too hard to do. I already have my poses divided into categories like "stance" "walking" "girlie" "tough girl" etc., so a little copying and pasting and I would have an all purpose photo and filming hud.

On my list. List is long however - LOL.   YOU most likely have lots of favorite DANCES (or perhaps some naughty animations) that you might want to add.

Be a rock star on the road or at home. The animations you need AND the props to go with them are only a couple of clicks away. Now how fun is that?

My necklace and earring set -- not in clear view in yesterday's post -- is an oldie but still a favorite, the .: Acid & Mala Creations :. Wired Set. Not surprising it is no longer available. Well 2010 was a long time ago!

I grew up in a Southern California coastal town. Surfers were the rock stars then, the only vampires of Dark Shadows fame.  We wore a lot of white in my beachy neighborhood. Why? Well, to show off our tans of course.

As we reach the end of summer, it is a perfect time to don those high contrast clothes and sun-streaked hair.

Vanity Hair's Margiela with many lovely color combos via hud can be found at Shiny Shabby. This is fitted mesh hair (who knew?) that seems to work very well judging by my somewhat limited test :D.   

Meva's White Flower  set comes with bangles for left and right as well as a choice of two rings.  Find it at Cosmopolitan.

My sleek and saucy mini sheath has a choice of four colors via hud. Look for the 20.FIVE Bewonder - Dress.

I spend most of my time in neutrals mode; black and tan, charcoal and taupe. But every now and then I really want to break away from my norm and enjoy some COLOR!

From Trompe Loeil, the Kiya Beach Huts in five colors (includes neutrals) exclusive for COLLABOR88.  Cute as can be with string lights and decks galore, the huts are perfect for beachtime living.

Also big in the color category (and also with neutral choices in the mix) these ArisAris Lennart capris with hud that let you change patterns of pants and belt as well as the button metal.

A new French-rolled hairdo let's the breezes cool you. Look for Vanity Hair's The Italian Job.  Many color choices by hud.

Industrial Chic


I got a little carried away taking photos so this will be a 'scroller' post :D.New building, new duds, new jewelry, new furniture -- and OLD poses.So let's talk about those old poses -- the things that had me taking so many photos. Pose Fair is still going on for a few more days. I haven't been over but I was chatting with Nissa the other eve (inventory - Lara - procrastination) and she was there shopping. With my inventory (only clothes and shoes cleaned so far) down to 37,000 I feel much lighter in spirit and of course even though I have other things to do (a new film for one) I thought it would be good to keep going.In my well organized from many years animations folder I have a sub folder called "need to go through".  Well, yep. What I can I say. It isn't too packed these days but up on top I noted one I didn't remember called "Bam Pack".As I was trying out the poses I really liked them. But, I didn't REMEMBER them. aDORKable has been closed for some time now -- at least from my point of view. I often use my old poses as they really don't go out of style, but most are familiar friends. Further sleuthing just now tells me that these appeared in my inventory at the end of January this year -- THIS year. Hmm. And a look on the Marketplace tells me there are NEW POSES.  How cool!   Filter for newest to find them.  So all you fans out there -- newness. And I am sorry these slipped by and I am tardy in reporting.Other newness of note are some very well made items from CARGO.  Runaway Jeans (basic colors and several colorful packs by hud) and the Ribbed Tank (seven color options per hud) have tons of details and fit perfectly -- me anyway, and that's what counts!  The belt is also available and sold separately (male, female, leather and metal options). There is a cute group gift tank with classy CARGO logo for freebie hunters. This Cargo desk and shelf fit in wonderfully with the new Barnesworth Annubis Factory Loft for COLLABOR88. The skylights make lovely shadows and the large build could certainly work as a store. This Bliensen + MaiTai - Wondertree - necklace ( black and silver version) adds a touch of class to casual wear. Find it at the Black Fashion Fair (and exclusive release).Hair: Peggy by MINA (one of the new colors from the GRAY pack)Poses by: aDORKable except for the pose by the desk which is mine.[...]

Can't Go Back


First of all, thank you for reading my thoughts. I was very happy to see my stats climb when I waxed poetically -- well, hey; maybe a little philosophy.My incoming folder is sparse at the moment and while I may decide to post less often, habit is a thing I have a difficult time getting out of. So here are my thoughts on the turn of events this last year.This is me in my infinitesimal (so love that word) skybox in some of my favorite things.I was chatting with a good friend this eve on another grid. We were coveting mesh bodies. We both HAVE them of course in SL and we both have the same (well I influenced her I am sure). For me Maitreya was the winner. I tried them all as they came out and didn't take the plunge until I found Lara.Now to be fair there was a "guy" in the mix and that might have pushed me a bit. And while the guy is no longer in the picture, I still have the body :D. So all is well.I was also very happy to see the update to the body arrive in my inventory (three times -- they want to make SURE you get it). New alpha divisions are in the update as well as better shoulders and a pretty tiny hud which you can leave on your screen should you have a fairly large one (mine is).While I was chatting with my friend I mentioned that I have not taken off this body since its purchase.  [Later note: I lied. One skin fair post.] Checking my inventory that is well over two months ago.  I didn't actually get to "use" my body in the manner I had planned (yes, insert coquettish laughter here) but I have made one new semi naked film and have another one (pretty PG -- well they both are really) in the works. I just can't stop looking at my lovely new body.Along with this news comes the revelation that I really (REALLY) need to clean my inventory. If I have NO plans whatsoever of wearing system layer clothing again, why should it clutter up my virtual closet. So -- on the list. Not at the top mind you. There are plenty more fun things to do. But still on the list.Shoes are a bit of a problem but I notice that more designers have started to make things for Lara. Yes, I have Slink but honestly while there are some shoes I absolutely adore there is no way I am going to redo things to wear them. Happily I love boots and many boots fit just fine.My title says it all. Once you get used to looking at yourself in this new and positive way -- it is very hard to go back. I will keep a "lag free" outfit for times when it is needed, but for me? I am sold.Shown here with some of my very favorite wearables.Baiastice_Laurel Top/Dress-Charcoal  (This is full enough so that you can keep your "skin" and wear "panties" and not be invisible.)

Gothmas By Gaslight


Full Sized Photo HERE.

Northern lights, gas lamps, sparkling trees -- Gothmas by Gaslight is open!

An eclectic mix of dark desires are yours to discover.

From Eclectica, 'Nightblooms'. Earrings, ring and collar form the beautifully made set. Colors can be changed by hud.

Poses (some sets with props) can be found at {NanTra}. Poses are not easy to make well; I suggest you check these out.

This nicely made lona (my great grandmother's name) long coat hales from Fission. Color choices of this vintage attire are blue, purple and red. I am wearing the fitmesh version but traditional mesh is also available in the pack.

Last but ohsonotleast in my book are these superb boots from {Venomous Rage Designs} . These are high heels which are typically not my favorite. That being said, I just can't seem to take them off!

Beautifully textured, the legwarmers also come separately. Look for Frost Bite Boots.

My hair is a new release from eXxExS,  PRIJA  The color huds are extensive. Hairbases are included.

Peach and Snow


If you love peach -- have I got some goodies for you.

My little friend here is the elf from ALB Dream Fashion for the first day of Advent. It was out early so I have been getting to know my little elf. SOOO CUUTE! The Advent list posted at midnight so scroll back a bit to find all the other places you can pick up nice gifts.

Tuesday note: This is so funny. The ELF isn't the present (well he really IS in my book); he is the "box". I only realized that when I went on day 2 and got the #2 elf LOL. So OPEN HIM! Elf 2 is textured differently than elf 1 so you can have a family maybe!

Wednesday note: this is NOW group only with a $300 join fee. Glad I got my little guys early :D. Sorry. 

And speaking of nice gifts --- my very pretty dress (don't worry scroll down for a more complete photo) with great necklace and also matching shoes is a POE7 hunt gift from .::KL Couture::. 

These holding poses are from a set of three from *PosESioN* on the POE7 hunt. The theme is "Mother"; very appropriate for the season. Definitely useful for all sorts of items that need to be held :D.  You need these!

Hair from Vanity Hair (the first time I actually used the tint any color part o the huds).
