[ s t y l e ] Azucena Queen

Today I feel like a princess wearing my new fine jewelry set from Alienbear Designs.  Azucena Queen is exquisitely made, adding a refined and elegant touch to any outfit.  This full set of jewelry includes two types of crowns and necklaces, a simpler version and a more detailed and extravagant version.   The set also comes with two different types of drop earrings.  I am wearing the more extravagant version of the crown and the necklace, as well as Type II earrings.  Type I is simpler, but equally beautiful.  Bracelets are also included in the set.  I do not get to wear my fine jewelry that often, even less a crown, but today is a special day.  I picked out a simple gown from Nardcotix to show off my new jewelry.  Note Alienbear’s jewelry are scripted to sparkle which you can turn on/off by typing the right command on chat box.

[ h a i r ] My Picks from Vignette

This is a quick post to show you my picks from Vignette.  As I mentioned in my earlier blog, Rachel Boram from Vignette has decided to offer all of her hair styles for free.  There are a number of styles, but here are my favorites from the bunch.  These are quite unique, a nice addition to my big collection of hair.  I am showing these in my usual hair color, black/brown.  Note there are lots of other colors available.   Head over to Vignette and grab these!  Thank you Rachel!

P.S.  Rachel has some great shoes for free as well!

[ s t y l e ] Feminine Tweed

[ s t y l e ] Feminine Tweed

I love my outfit today.  It’s feminine and flirty, perfect look for a date.  It started with my new tweed dress from Lark, a recent gift from Sienia Trevellion.  Thanks Sienia for the marvelous gift.  I love it!  The dress is perfect on its own.  It even comes with matching accessories such as the leather belt as well as the statement necklace, the drop  earrings and the bracelet.  I just added a bolero from Nardcotix for a bit of coverage, sheer stockings and wine color booties from Maitreya.  My skin is Kelly from YourSkin & YourShape, a new release for the Vanity Skin Fair.  The hair is from Vignette.  Note all hair styles at Vignette are now available for free.  I actually bought this one during Hair Fair, but Rachel Boram, the creator behind Vignette, has recently decided to share all her creations for free, including this hairstyle.  Thank you Rachel for your generosity.

[ p o s t c a r d ] Amethyst Fairy at Taniz

[ p o s t c a r d ] Amethyst Fairy

Taniz is a sim made of a group of islands dedicated to mystical creatures and fantasy.  Upon arrival, you will land at a skybox overlooking the sim.  Hop on the balloon to get a general tour of the sim and to reach the main area.  From the main area, you can TP using the Taniz Teleporter Bamboo to check out all the interesting places the sim has to offer: Adamanta Thol, Chinese Dream, Dragons’ Island, Hippie Beach, Lakotas’ Camp, Kameleon’s Dream, Mermaids, Pirates Port, Vampire Club, and Zeppelin.  There are lots of pose balls for couples including couple dancing, all around the sim.  Needless to say, there are some great photo locations as as well. 

While exploring, I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners of the sim, Unkyie Jewell.  Unkyie says they hold themed parties and events at the sim.  I can’t wait to attend one!

[ s t y l e ] Thank You Lion!

[ s t y l e ] Thank You Lion!

Once again, Lion Jonesford from Lion Skins has been extremely generous and offered all LeeZu! models a free skin of choice from her newest skin lines, Ying & Yang.  I immediately TP-ed over to check them out and I fell absolutely in love with the variety of funky make ups.  I picked out Ying Pale 10.  The dark yet sultry plum shades of this skin inspired me to put together today’s outfit.  The top is a combination of the Valerie Blouse and Mia Corset Pants/Dress, both from LeeZu!.  I added basic pants from Michami, currently on sale, 50% off.  Note Michami’s clothings are great basic staples to mix and match since her clothing come in all possible layers.  I added classic pearls to keep the look elegant.  My hair was kept short to show off my new make up! 

Thanks Lion for your generosity!  I love the variety of make up choices~  Go and check them out at her store.

One more thing, note the poses used today are from Glitterati, currently L$100 sale on model pose packs.  There are some interesting poses so check them out.  These poses do glide into position but it happens a bit too quickly in my opinion, so I would not use them for AOs or runway.  However, there are great for photo-taking.

[ s k i n ] Nicole Skins by YourSkin & YourShape

[ s k i n ] Nicole Skins by YS & YS

 

This is a quick sneak peak of Nicole Skins from YourSkin & YourShape, which will be released along with two other skin lines (Kelly & Michelle)  at Vanity Skin Fair tomorrow Nov 7th.  Nicole, Kelly and Michelle share the same facial features and same make up options.  The main difference is the skin tone.  Nicole is the fairest and Michelle is the darkest.  All three skin lines come with hairbase, freckles, and two different eyebrow options, which are an added plus.  There are a total of 14 delightful make-ups for each skin line.  Here I am showing you some of my favorites from Nicole Skins.

I am not going to go through the body details as most of you know already how soft and beautiful the bodies of YourSkin & YourShape are already.  Make sure you check out YourSkin & YourShape at Vanity Skin Fair tomorrow, pick up some demos, try them on, and shop, shop, shop!  Make note the skin fair runs till Nov 22.

A big thank you to Monicuzza Babenco from YourSkin & YourShape for sending me some samples.  I love them!!!

[ s t y l e ] Casual Autumn Days

[ s t y l e ] Casual Autumn Days

It’s been really cold lately, but today was unsually warm.  Today’s look is casual and effortless, extremely comfortable and relaxed.  The whole outfit started off with this cute plaid dress from Lark.  Sienia Trevellion had dropped it on me a few weeks back but I did not see it in my inventory till yesterday.  Perhaps it’s been blogged all over already, but I think it’s so cute.  Thanks Sienia!!!  The dress comes with a hand-in-pocket animation AO from Adorkable Poses that can be attached on & off.  I added the new roll up jeans from Sweetest Goodbye for a more casual look, and an adorable cardigan from Bingo to add a bit of girlie accents.  The shoes is the most unexpected choice, Salience Brown from Maitreya Gold line.  After all, I like drama in my shoes. 

One more thing, note the skin I am wearing today.  It’s Bella from Tuli released today on Nov 6th.  Tuli has been teasing us with previews and they are ready now, so go check them out!  You won’t be disappointed.  Perhaps I will get around to show you my favorite make up from this line soon.
