Marvelously Fab in Paris

Seven $55 Thursday Alena Ourfit_001 (1)

I’m feeling special today. How about you? I think we’ve been watching way too many episodes of Project Runway at home. Today’s outfit kind of reminds me of some of the fashion creations the contestants design and fabricate.  The challenges on the show can run from making an elegant gown in luxurious fabric to using EMS and firefighter supplies for an avant-garde look (think bandages, fire hoses, etc).

In honor of my feeling special, sexy, and so fashionable I visited Paris, one of the world’s fashion capitals. I love all of what I’m wearing from the top of my head down to my toes. Where is that runway? I feel like being in a fashion show.

Ooh La La

I subscribe to a lot of stores and groups. This morning I received a notecard about Fifty5 Thursday deals at Seven. Deciding I loved this look off to the shop I went. Alena comes as a top and mini skirt. Details give it an edgy look. There are a number of colors to choose from available at the store ($55L per color).

Sizes

  • Belleza, Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • SLink HG & Physique

Edgier (?)

SL19B eyes with hud 6-18-2022_001 (1)

Then another notecard arrived from Sintiklia! The store participates in the Happy Weekend Sale on a fairly regular basis. One of today’s offerings is this funky updo, Octavia. It’s a high ponytail pulled to the front and bangs hanging in front. Included in each color pack is a style hud. It was just what I needed to complete this look.

Look deeply into my eyes . . . . Named “Rainstorm Eyes” they’re a lovely SL19B gift from theMars. You get 6 shades of bom eyes along with huds for Catwa, Catwa HDPro, Lelutka Evo, and Genus. The huds work with the eyes for each of the heads. How cool is that?

SHOES!

Finishing off my look is the gorgeous Lilly shoes, one of many group gifts at StephaneL. The group join fee is $15L. The current gift is a $500L gift card. I’m not very good at math but even I can see that’s a pretty good deal. You’ll also find a couple of walls of older group gifts.

Black is the New Orange

Fatal Fashion June GG

One of my favorite SL activities is shopping! It has been for a very long time. I love sales and events that lead me to shops I’ve never before visited. One of my latest discoveries was Fatal Fashion. I popped over a couple of weeks ago to pick up a weekend sale item. I saw the group gift wall there and thought the gifts looked pretty nice. The latest group gift loudly called my name. The $0L group join fee sealed the deal for me!

Black can be so Seductive

Dressing in black can be for mourning but personally I prefer it as a prelude to a dramatic look. (p.s. I prefer brighter colors for mourning). The latest group gift from Fatal Fashion (Free/Group is free to join) is this sexy top and skirt along with the boots and 2 bracelets in black and gold. It’s a curve hugging fit with nice detailing in lace & cut outs on the top. As you can see in the picture the boots are open toe & laced up the front. You will be noticed in this outfit so be prepared to maybe get a few IMs from guys!

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique

There ya have it dear readers. You never know what you’ll find that tickles your fancy!

Imagine Whirled Peas,

Time for Chilling Out

30L Sat Belle Epoque Nohoa

Whew! It sure is hot! Time to show some skin and cool off. It was too hot to lug my board to the water until I cooled down some. If you can’t cool down dressed like this then you must be having “private summers”. In my wanderings today I found the perfect bikini, some nice cold juice and a very cool beach with surfing.

She Wore an Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Rainbow Bikini

I tripped into Belle Epoque earlier and scooped up the Nohoa bikini for only $30L; Wheeee!
It’s the Pride Edition. Though it’s a bit teeny it does cover up all your private parts and it’s well crafted with nice details.

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

OMG! New Hair!

The other day a wee birdy whispered into my ear news of a free to join store group with a free group gift. Being the hair hoarder that I am I immediately tp’ed over to check it out. Who doesn’t have fun being able to change your style, color, length, etc?

Deadbox-Dollbox is a new to me store with a small selection of male & female clothing & tattoos. There are a couple of hairstyles; one of them is the Shafar gift. You add a bom hairbase and wear the hair (ponytail). Included are a  color change hud and an accessory – a gold colored ring to add to the style.

My tasty little box drink, Gay Juice, is a gift courtesy of 28LA. at Second Pride blogged by Aline here

Goddess Mode: On

kimini_002

Hey gang!

So sometimes you just want to feel like a Goddess.  Like you just came down to the ruins of the ancient world and have to power to make it all beautiful again.  Sometimes you simply find a dress that makes you *feel* like a goddess.  And sometimes, just sometimes…. that dress is free.  And you do a mad happy dance cause now you feel like a freaking goddess and it didn’t even cost you anything!  And then you start a lot of sentences with “and” even though you know you aren’t really supposed to but you feel like such a rebel and you really don’t care cause you are too busy happy dancing….  and then you think you need to come up for air, stop babbling like a lunatic (its a hobby) and tell everyone else how they too can feel like said goddess, for freaking free!

This is one of those times.

Kamiri has this gorgeous dress available as a free Third Life Group Gift.  This group is free to join making this gift totally free! (can’t say that happy word enough!) In fact, they have an entire area upstairs with free gifts!  Well worth the trip to the shop.  This dress fits:

  • Fitmesh
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Classic

I absolutely love the detail on this and will be tucking this away for further wearing!  Bliss!

The Queen in Her Kingdom

Coming soon

There’s only two days left of Fantasy Faire, and I poked around the various regions of the event to look for gifts. There are some out, but they are a bit tricky to find. One I found was this free animated golden flower, which I thought was gorgeous. The item is made by Gabriel, and it includes the hand pose and light orbs that float above it. You will find it for free near the landing of the Tenpayo region here. It all ends on May 18th, so go soon!

Queen Natalia

Coming soon

Now it’s time for the feature of my post today, which is this beautiful “Natalia” skin for Lelutka EvoX heads. This is a free gift from ItGirls. I am wearing the skin in “Rose”, but it comes in a fatpack of other dark and light natural shades. Each shade also includes the lovely dark eyebrows.

For this particular EvoX skin, you will need to own a Lelutka Evolution head. All previous Lelutka Evolution heads have been updated to EvoX, so be sure to click the update button in your head folder if you haven’t had the time or interest in updating yet. EvoX is a bit of a learning curve, but I recommend it because the skins are fabulous! Once you have your EvoX head, just click the “EvoX” button on the HUD to put your head in EvoX mode, which allows you to use more detailed skin and makeup options.

Once this is all done, you will notice that with the free skin from ItGirls, that the ears and face skins are separated. You need to wear a separate tattoo for the ears. So you then need to find the matching ear skin to go with the face skin. All of the face skins and ear skins are included in the free gift from ItGirls. You can also get a pack of free EvoX ear skins, which is available for all to get on the front desk at ItGirls.

Sizes Included (ItGirls skin & ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

What about that sneaky neckline?

I’m sure some of you have noticed that nasty neckline that can pop up when you wear an EvoX head skin that doesn’t include a body skin. Not to fear, for Velour is here. Velour has a package of free ear skins and neck fixes for EvoX heads. To get the package, look on the front desk to get the pack for free. No group join is needed. The neck fixes work perfectly to blend the ItGirls skin with another body skin. I am currently wearing a body skin from a different creator entirely, one of 7 Deadly S[K]ins‘ BOM skins in the Caramel tone, and it blends so smoothly! These neck fixes should work with any companies that use Velour tones in their head skins and you should have few problems wearing the head skins with a different body skin.

Sizes Included (Velour neck fixes and ear skins)

  • Lelutka EvoX

Well, that wasn’t complicated at all! 😉 If you have any questions about EvoX skins feel free to post your queries in the comments.
