Retro and Loving It

Collabor8 has an outstanding array of items for sale. Mom and I were super excited to get in and grab some items, and then dress ourselves up.

I went completely out of my comfort zone. I was going to go towards the clothes that I could see myself always wearing, and then saw this polka dotted dress. I fell in love instantly. I love this dress. I just completely adore how it fits my curves and flares out. Ok so it may be a little on the sexier side of the spectrum, than the flirty and fun outfits they have there... But... *Shrugs*
 ( if anyone knows me, they know... bows and polka dots are not in my inventory!!)
 What was funny, was that Mom and I went shopping separately, and we had no idea what the other had bought. In all I do believe her and I are a match made in heaven for our styles! LOL. We are both showing off Glam Affairs' and the same Truth hair.
 Mom's flirty and loving life in these pictures. The dress just poof's the right way as her body moves.  This outfit can make any girl, feel like she should be on her way to a school dance.

~Maia from PurpleMoon Creations~

PurpleMoon Creations recently released this fabulous little dress called Maia! Plunging necklines are very in this season, and although not for everyone, I think they can combine daring and chic at the same time.   For me, this dress is sophisticated and tantalizing with its deep neckline, just showing enough but not giving too much away.  I love the way the neck frill falls naturally, adding to the femininity of this clean cut dress.

'Maia' is available in eight beautiful shades.  Each shade comes with a HUD that allows you to change the pattern style from plain to spotted or fern.  Each style can also be purchased as a pattern with a pre-loaded HUD containing 8 available colours, giving you plenty of choice.

V.E @ Fameshed May '14

I tottered down to Fameshed today to buy a kitchen.... and I came home with a kitchen, hair, sofa, garden lamps, top AND these three dresses called 'Harper' from Valentina.e (V.e) - fitted mesh, available in five standard sizes.  There are two styles and each style comes in three bold colours - 'Orchid', 'Teal' and 'Citrus',  and one sharp black-and-white, 'Monochrome'.

Wearing this dress naturally made me want to walk taller then I already do lol.  You can't help but put your shoulders back, and walk with elegance and an air of attitude. I have teamed up both dresses with these great T-bar heels from Elysium.  They can be found at L'Accessorize (taxi below), and are also available in a wide spectrum of colours that go with just about any outfit.  You will need JD feet to wear them.  

This top is chic yet cheeky, loose enough at the side to make you feel a little risque but still maintain a sense of class. The criss-cross back draws the eye down to the wide belt which hugs the waist tightly, showing off those curves! The thigh-length skirt option is a great way to showcase a pair of gorgeous sun-kissed legs. 

Personally, I love the hem of the full length gown,  the way it kicks out at the bottom.  For it to reach the floor, I would advise wearing it shoeless to achieve the best effect. <3

These two photos below are my attempt at Berry's Monday Meme ;)

Cold Logic's hot little numbers.

Just a quick post to show off this pretty little mesh dress from Cold Logic.  'Wren' has a plain V-neck sleeveless top that flows down into a super cute, flowery, tiered skirt.  It comes in four colours - Zinfandel, Cocoa, Butter and Cotton, and is available in store. I am wearing Cotton.  It also comes in a two-toned design (not shown)  called  'Ayres' which comes in Seafoam, Violet, Steel and Blush. You can purchase in store and on the Marketplace, in five standard sizes: L,M,S,XS and XXS. 

Now I have to run back to RL.  There... I told you it was a quick post ;)   xx

Summer loving.

I think Spring forgot to arrive here in NS, the folks back home are catching rays and having barbecues while I look out of my window and see rain!  I even have my heating on today and it is almost May!  Thankfully Spring/Summer has arrived in SL so Dawne and I took ourselves down to one of our favourite designers for a little shopping trip.  Cold Logic always has some wonderful colours to cheer up a dreary day.  

The dresses we are wearing, so elegantly I might add ;), are called 'Zois', we've donned them with a pair heels but this dress looks just as great with a pair of sneakers. It comes in four bright colours; Lagoon (as worn by Kali), Flamingo (worn by Dawne), Whitewash and Sunny.  Available in 5 sizes and can be worn with or without the belt.   This style of dress is also available in a more mute colour collection called 'Jolie'.

As I write this, it is cold and wet outside.  So.... for now, I am going to turn away from my RL window and lose myself in the heat of the virtual beach.  Maybe I'll take a bicycle ride along the promenade, have a lemonade at the local cafe and dip my virtual toes in the virtual cool water. :)

Getting Ready

     I can remember my prom, years ago... Getting ready and placing on the beautiful gown.. Feeling like a princess or queen...The anticipation of what could happen, what will happen. When I put on a dress from Son!a, every time, I feel as though, I am right back to 18 years old, and feeling like the most beautiful girl in the room.

    The gentle flow of the skirt across the bare skin of my legs, and the back line, the plunge, that just makes the coolness of the night air, to send chills down my spine. It's truly a gorgeous dress. Ready to make your counterpart drool over what is underneath.  Sexy/Sassy/Beauty.

Me, myself and I

There is a lot going on in my RL at the moment and sometimes trying to handle it with a sunny disposition and a happy-go-lucky kind of attitude can be hard and tiring.  There are days when I would like to take off somewhere alone for a few days. I am sure most of us feel it at some point or another, just to be able to stop and regain myself.  To dance around like a lunatic... oh hold on.. I do that anyway!  To read a good book, relax,  Maybe dangle my feet off a pier and into a nice cool lake surrounded by forest.  To just sit and feel the breeze on my skin, knowing I don't have to rush anywhere or be on call for someone else.  I can be me... just me, myself and I.

For now I will be following Dory's advice from 'Finding Nemo' to just keep swimming. ;D
