As you can see, I went crazy on the gems and fine jewelry today; but nothing wrong with that. It’s exactly the kind of thing I love to blog.
Easter is almost here and this month has been non-stop getting ready. I’m jumping onto the blog to show you a few things before the holiday gets even more hectic. I hope you’ll take some time to stop around and pick up the items. Also, I’m wearing the Maitreya bento hands with the Maitreya body. Typically I don’t wear them around all over the place, but I haven’t taken them off since they were released.

This past Sunday I walked in the first of two shows for the Autism Speaks Charity Event sponsored by Athena Couture and Lazuri. I had the pleasure of wearing the “Daryl” outfit made by Lyrical B!zarre Templates, a designer whom I love. I found some interesting poses to showcase the outfit on the runway, most of them by Posesion. In addition, I wore earrings and a bracelet from different sets also made by Lyrical B!zarre Templates. Keeping it all in the family, you see. The hair bun is by Rowne.
The event, hosted by Miss Royalty 2015 JewelofDeNiel, will be in full swing until February 20th. To get there, please take this taxi. 100% of proceeds from the event will go Autism Speaks. There are many great designers participating and there will also be music at various times during the event. Our next fashion show is on Sunday the 14th at 11am slt. We look forward to seeing you!
There is a new designer on the block, none other than the noted blogger and photographer, Xantheanne Resident. This week she opened her store Sorbet, which has a dress and skirt available for sale. Everything sold in the store is and will be 100% original mesh and promises to offer unique creations. When you visit, you will also find the extremely cute dress featured in the photo which is the group gift. The group is currently free to join, but will only stay that way until February 1st.
To add to the adorable and dreamy look, I added the most recent jewelry set from Lyrical B!zarre Templates. This month you will find it at the Full Perm Fair. On first glance, it just looks like lovely hearts, but when you take a closer look at the details, you will see little gears encrusting the pendants.

On social media I have noticed a lot of people wearing this dress. It definitely seems to be very popular, and for good reason. Lore did a wonderful job in designing something out of this world and fun. You can wear it to any party and also to a club. There is something about the pattern that screams freedom. I have been wearing it since she sent it to the blogger group. Yup, guilty. I think that’s what matters when you’re blogging – it’s important to show outfits that you are in love with and wear for days on end.
I also decided to wear a Genesis Labs head for this entry. It probably seems strange since I don’t look like I normally do in photos (although my husband says my avatar looks different in every single image he sees of her). The Emily head was too gorgeous not to wear. It makes me feel incredibly pretty. It’s a softer look than I usually have and that is what drew me to it. This is the blink version, which is a rare in the gacha. If you get any of the lipsticks in the gacha machine, they can be worn with it, which made me incredibly happy when I found out. The base skin in every color option is available in the box that the head comes in, but there aren’t appliers. You can get those separately. I was actually able to use the Maitreya Lara body with the Glam Affair skin tones and change it to the right tint to match reasonably well with the head. If you wear the Lara, I recommend trying that first if you aren’t interested in buying the appliers. Obviously, appliers will give you the best effect, so if you plan to wear this head A LOT, then definitely buy them.

Special thanks to Daria of Mesh Body Addicts for the tip about the runway set.
I decided to post a classic mix-and-match look. So much of the time on this blog, I show great items available at the latest events. While that is all well and good, I have read in articles that a variety of fashion is appreciated. Only one of the items in this post is recent. The rest of it is a mix of mesh and prim. That is a point I would like to make. In my opinion, it would be a mistake to completely throw out system clothing, prim items and even sculpt pieces in favor of going completely mesh. I love mesh, but the reason for keeping other pieces? Because mesh has a habit of not layer well on top of other items from the same material. A small example of this is the belt I am wearing in this photo. It is a resizable prim belt, and therefore, I was able to make it large enough to fit over the pants and sit in exactly the right place under the edge of the shirt. My only caveat to this is that I believe the system/prim/sculpt pieces we do keep in our inventories should be of very high quality and impeccable textures. Anything less, go ahead and throw out!
On another note, I consider this outfit to be more adventurous than fits with my normal style. Truthfully, I play it safe more often than not. But this time, the pants inspired me to play around with color. Usually I stick to 3 colors per outfit for the ease of styling and coordination. However, I wanted to step out of the box with these autumn hues and I encourage every stylist and model to do the same. In the end, it’s likely going to look very sophisticated. I have already had many compliments on this ensemble. It has been saved in my inventory as a favorite outfit.

Considering how much I love Lyrical, you know I need to blog it once in a while. As I have told her on occasion, she has created Lyrical B!zarre Templates as a brand that caters to any type of event and style. What I mean is that if I want to attend a ball or garden party or simply go out shopping with my friends, there is something I can wear by Lyrical. She has created all kinds of amazing outfits.
Right now I am loving this prop from Exposeur. I have blogged them before because I think the quality of products is so high. This prop has TONS of pose options and I look forward to using it again.
