Posies Fae Flower

I just love the creativity of Anatalia Honi, owner of Posies which has been selling her 1L daily poses for quite awhile now, and this time she has created this lovely Fae Flower packed with such cute animations that I could spend the whole day just playing with them! The Fae Flower will be one of the offerings at the Pose Fair--take a look at some of the anims:

Spotlight: Curvy Silhouettes

Those who know me will know that I'm not so adventurous when it comes to experimenting with skins and shapes, and that when I find a skin I like, I stick to it for years!! Maybe it's my personality, or maybe it's because I'm always trying on new skins on my (in the words of my dear friend Xanthe) 'old tired shape' which is sooooooooooooo ancient that I don't think they even make it anymore and which really doesn't do justice to any new skin at all!! So today I decided to try NEW skins on NEW shapes (for once), using shapes from Curvy Silhouettes which, to me, has some of the most realistic women's (and men's) shapes in SL.

All shapes from Curvy Silhouettes

Shape: Florrie
Skins: Light-Vivian Ate My Golden Watch/Cleavage and Pale-Vivian Couldn't Sleep Skins from !Imabee, Miso Sun from Leafy

Shape: Emile
Skins: Alexxis from Black&Blue, Hounds of Love Tan from &Bean, Bunny Tan Teethy Skin from Tik Tok

Shape: Saffron
Skin: Spring Gift Skin from Sowelu, Isis Tan Wound and Lady Gaga Skins from Eret!ka

Shape: Amber
Skins: Raquel Skin from A Piece of Candy, Ice Dress Skin from Submissive Ice Avatar set at Adora, Rene Skin from Tik Tok

Shape: Bibi
Skins: Leila and Bunny Skins from Tik Tok, Aprilpalee Skin from Virtual Diva

After this experiment (which I enjoyed tremendously), I learnt how important shapes are and that no matter how wonderful the skin is, it cannot do wonders to the whole look if the shape is all wrong...(I can almost hear Xanthe say, "I told you so!") Yeahh, I'm a slow learner, what can I do???

Size Matters (Sometimes)

Here I am at Greenies Home (which is really the home of giants) feeling rather small (literally) and a little disoriented because everything is towering over me except for some cute little green aliens and a lovely dollhouse with furniture that is just right for my size. Overrall, it is an interesting place to check out and to see things from a very different perspective--sure looks like size DOES matter sometimes!!

Super sized...and there goes my diet!

Just you and me against the (virtual) world...

Nice Kitty...

Safe at last in the dollhouse...

Spotlight: Waterfall Gowns from Sascha's

I know that the Waterfall Collection from Sascha's Designs has already been all over the feeds, and I usually try not to duplicate what's out there in the blogosphere, but when Sascha asked me if I wanted to blog for her latest collection, I just couldn't say no, after all, her gowns are really some of the most beautiful in SL, and this was the designer I had always admired ever since I came to this metaverse; also, many of my first gowns were from Sascha's Designs--it was a brand that I trusted completely because you can never go wrong with a Sascha gown. In fact I used to tell my friends that a woman is not dressed till she is dressed in Sascha's! These latest Waterfall gowns are again testament to Sascha's superb craftsmanship and close attention to detail, with even more options than before to suit any mood....

Waterfall Gold--a special edition with a few more extras such as a pair of gloves, more skirt options (battleship skirt, sleek train, short train), bolero, fur stola and shawl which are not found in the other Waterfall gowns.

Waterfall Pink

Waterfall Apple

These are just some of the colours that I had chosen to blog about, so do visit Sascha's Designs for the complete range, you will certainly NOT be disappointed!

Thank you Sascha for creating such gorgeous gowns!! xxxxx

Ripped Dollarbies!

Ok I know some people will wonder why on earth anyone would wear something that looks like plain, shoddy workmanship, or worse, resembles the aftermath of an assault! And I know there are also others who will say that with all the ripped out parts, no wonder these are dollarbies (for them, this is a rip-off!! hee)!! But we all know that fashion is never quite logical (it defies logic in fact, if not, why would otherwise sensible and intelligent women wear heels so high that they know will hurt their joints and backs in the long run??) and that it is so subjective that one man's meat truly is another's poison indeed! Anyway, love or hate them, for me, the lovely colours are what attracted me in the first place, and that more than makes up for the 'missing' material!!
