Nostalgic Reflections

Nostalgia : pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again. ~Merriam-Webster Dictionary

I’m an old-fashioned girl at heart. And yes, even a bit nostalgic at times. I love old-school Hollywood glitz and glamour, so you can bet that I’m loving the current round of Collabor88, where this month’s theme is “Raw Nostalgia.” Simple, yet complicated, but oh so romantic. :-)

I had an “instant crush” on this dress from *{Junbug}* as soon as I saw it. As always, the textures are amazing, and the way the dress drapes across the body is so sensual. And if you think the front is gorgeous, you should see the booty (what I wouldn’t give for my RL booty to look that good)! :-) Available in 7 colors, this dress can be yours at the discounted price of 188L at Collabor88.

Ok, ok, I know that wasn’t free. But what you can find for free is this lovely skin from ::Bite&Claw::. Look for a small gift box near the front door of the store. Oh, and there’s a men’s skin included in the box. Also free is this jewelry set from Beloved, which includes a pretty necklace and earrings. I know you can’t see my earrings (sorry!), but they look like a dangly version of the necklace. And they’re free… I mentioned that, right? ;-)

Most of the decor items you see here are by Lark, and are also available at Collabor88. Except for the music box, which is by *MishMish*:-)

Champagne & Feathers

Blogging Soon

Before I nod off to sleep tonight, I wanted to show you this cute dress. Joey’s Champagne Feathers Dress is the latest group gift from Paisley Daisy. The dress is mesh and comes in 5 standard sizes. I styled it in sort of a flapper look by adding the Pickford Heels by Ingenue and Zelda hair by !lamb. Both are available at this month’s round of Collabor88. My jewelry is Beloved in Gold & Black, a free gift from Virtual Impressions.

‘Night, Fabulouses!

A Little Dingy in Purple

It’s Monday (meh) in RL, but I can pretend that it’s still Sunday in SL! And while I’m pretending it’s still Sunday, I’m going to relax and spend some time on the beach with Nessie. Maybe I’ll even take a nap. :-D

Blogging soon!

I’m lounging around today in this comfy tank top and shorts, a group gift from new FabDesigner Total Eclipse Couture. The shorts are mesh and come in 5 sizes. The group is free to join, so do check them out! My Diva necklace and blingy ring are free gifts from new-to-me store Purple Rose.

Blogging soon!

Time for a nap in my Little Dingy, a free gift from aDORKable Poses at FabFree Headquarters. There is also a cute posing bench in the box. Nessie, quit barking and let me sleep!

Make Mine a Venti

Blogging Soon!

Heading to a party or just looking to grab the attention of a certain special someone? I guarantee you will not be missed in this smokin’ hot number, Venti Cup Two, the latest gift from Paris METRO Couture at Sydney City. And what you see here is not all you get; there’s another row of sexy slits right down the backside! Sssssizzle! ;-)

My pearl jewelry by Dark Mouse is a free gift at FabFree Headquarters, and comes in black, pink, and white. They’ve been shown here at FF by numerous bloggers, which just goes to show you that a great set of pearls really goes a long way! My hair is the latest release from D!va for Collabor88 (188L). It comes in 2 styles with a color change rose and headband.

I feel so very Daisy Buchanan tonight! :-D

Feeling Fine, Bee Mine :-)

I was so excited to be invited to sing at this cute club today! My first set is for the lunch crowd, so I’m wearing this sweet, new gift from Paris Metro Couture. I’m wearing the mesh belted skirt, but the dress also comes with a flexi skirt and a cute hat. To get the gift, head over to Sydney City, Australia and join the group (free to join); it’s the one with the kangaroo on it. My jewelry is by Stars! and is a Womenstuff group gift. And my hair? Mana, a new release from D!va, featured at Hair Fair 2013. Now, I’ve been a fan of D!va hair since I first joined SL, but this one is truly amazing. It comes with a “base” hair, and a long, mesh attachment, which I’m wearing here. You can turn the bow and headband off and on individually, and change the color. I really love the ’60s bouffant style. 8-)

For my evening set, I’ve selected this amazing gift from Finesmith Jewelry. The July group gift includes this gorgeous, mesh dress, AND all the jewelry I’m wearing! The Finesmith group is currently free to join, so don’t miss out on this fabulous gift. I’m still wearing my Mana hair from D!va, but this time I’ve taken off the mesh part, turned the bow and headband off, and turned ON the bun. If you love messy updos, then this look is definitely for you! D!va is donating 20% of their sales to Wigs for Kids, so you can’t go wrong by supporting this worthwhile cause. :-)

P.S. Many thanks to Alex Philo, owner of Sydney City, Australia, for going above and beyond to help me out today. Stop by his lovely sim and check it out!

Ma Vie en Teal

Taxi! TAXI!!

Why is it so hard to get a cab in this town? I thought if I showed a little leg using this sexy pose by Ma Vie I’d get a cab right away for sure. :-(

No such luck… looks like I’ll be “hoofing it” to the party. Oh well, at least I’ll look good doing it. This stunning, teal cocktail dress is one of this month’s group gifts from Hudson’s Clothing Co. (free to join). The textures in this dress are really amazing, and the skirt and bow come with a resizer script. I’ve added a pair of black Classic Satin Stilettos by Abi’s ~ Affordable Living, which I found on the Marketplace for only 10L. My Gothic Lace Hand Bag – which I’ve shown before, but I love it! – is by ::Duh!::, and is texture-changing, with 3 different metals and 5 colors. Not a bad deal for 25L!

Another gift for Hudson’s group members this month is this lovely Black Moonstone necklace and earrings. As with the dress, the textures are really very detailed, and both the earrings and necklace come with a resizer script. And as I mentioned before, my fun, sexy poses are by Ma Vie; the Revealed set of 10 poses is available today for 60L as part of Lazy Sunday.
