Trip to India

Trip to India

On my bucket list of countries to visit, India is certainly high on the list. Back in high school I almost had the chance, but the family I was going to stay with came down with a terrible sickness. Everyone recovered fine, but my host felt it would ruin my trip to potentially get sick as well. The sentiments about protecting my health were certainly generous. I am sad to have missed the opportunity, but look for a chance to go some day. So, since I cannot visit yet in real life, I can travel there in Second Life. And even better, I get to wear a gorgeous Indian-inspired dress and shoes from White Room Couture to complete the dream. The designer was inspired by several countries and made three version of each item. The Indian version spoke to me the most due to its vibrant color and pattern.

This is also my first blog photo taken in Black Dragon viewer. Unfortunately, Firestorm acts up for me when I try to take photos. It will remain my default viewer, but when I need photos for this blog or TEOM Magazine, I will use the other. CtrlAltStudio and Singularity were also mentioned as possibilities when I posted about the issue on Facebook. The one thing I miss about Firestorm are the photo tools.

Countdown to Penumbra Fashion Week

slackgirlforpenumbra-final
It’s time to gear-up for the Penumbra Spring/Summer Fashion Week. I’m honored to be blogging for them this year for the first time. While the event does not begin until Saturday, May 16th, I wanted to provide you with a sneak preview. This blog post features Penumbra 02 by SlackGirl. While the dress is certainly the highlight item, if you buy this set it also comes with the earrings and shoes featured here. To add further polish to the look, I have included a clutch (my go-to type of purse) and worn a chic ponytail. This dress makes me feel super feminine and I can’t help but notice that I look extra curvy. That never hurts.

For more information about Penumbra Fashion Week, which runs until May 23rd, please visit their website You will find a list of designers and the specific runway shows that are happening.

Athena

athenaI’m incredibly excited to talk to you today about the Fashion for Change event. It runs April 11th-25th as a charity project for Womankind Worldwide. There will be entertainment, exclusive items for sale and fashion shows. It’s a great honor for me to support Miss Virtual World, Eleseren Brianna, with this event in some way. I love charity work or helping the community locally, nationally and internationally. My real life job every day changes people’s lives, so the least I could do is pitch in to help Eles do the same for Womankind Worldwide. Until she brought this charity to the forefront, I had never heard of it before. During the next few weeks and the duration of the event, I will show you more great designs. I’m looking forward to it and hope you are too! Landmark will be published when the event opens, so check back here on the 11th.

Frostbite

frostbite-final1

frostbite-final2Today is 21Shoe! It’s my first time blogging anything for it. In case you are not familiar, it’s an event where you can buy two shoes for the price of one. I do follow several of the designers, but I felt like the two pairs from Glamistry really stood out the most to me. Of the two color possibilities, I am particularly drawn to the silver and purple ombre version which I chose to blog today. There is also a gold and brown ombre version to pick out from the hud. Remember: these pairs are exclusive for today only so you must buy them from the store TODAY. I thought the metallics went nicely with Pixicat’s Frostbitten Dress from the Secret Affair. If you couldn’t tell, I had a lot of fun experimenting with the lights. The gorgeous ones in the top photo were created by keke and can be found at Kustom 9.

The Essence of Purple


violetgown-final

Here is my first official blog photo taken using my new photography friend. I’m still working out the kinks and trying to find the lighting effects I like best, but I’m having a lot of fun using it. The emphasis in this look is definitely on the gown and it’s beautiful ruffles. Harder to see in the photo is the glitter along the edge of the top and each ruffle. Trust me, you will like this when you see it in person.

Gown: Snowpaws – Elegance Gown
Necklace: OXI – Satine Collar (comes with or without open collar script) from the Countdown Room

Time to Dream

timetodream-final1My Second Life has been super busy lately, but it’s finally calming down enough that I can get some blog entries done. Today’s look is quite girly and dreamy, hence the post title. OneWord opened this week with my favorite round yet. The items are truly stunning. C88 is starting in a couple of days and the most magnificent items will be available from Pixicat. The shoes are absolutely exquisite, especially the unicorn faces which are super realistic. If you love fancy shoes like I do, then you want these heels, believe me. Below I have provided a close-up of facial and nail items that I am coveting right now. The eyeshadow as you will see in the credits is available at OneWord as are the nails (which come with a BUNCH of options both for slink or the Maitreya body). The forehead jewels are from OXI for yet another event, the kind Lady Torley would love. This entire look makes me feel ready for dream land.
