Time to Shine…

Sometimes when ‘the chips are down’ and you have no one else to rely upon but yourself, the world can seem a scary place. However, I think given the right frame of mind and a good old dose of determination, these moments in life can form into our finest hours.

Having gained some experience in working with graphics, I can imagine that there is great skill in creating metallic and shiny fabric textures in SL. Of course our talented Second Life Designers manage to pull it off beautifully and with stunning effect. Metallic shimmers are definitely a key RL trend this season and I’m pleased to see this reflected in current collections. When all around us seems to be doom and gloom, my advice is to don your sequins, slap on your lippy, and and prepare to dazzle with show stopping effect!

Now, isn’t it your time to shine?…

second-life-style-tipsI recently discovered Fab.Pony after my colleague on the Focus Fashion Agency Team, Seinna Fredriksson, wrote about them in her brilliant and weekly post, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Well, as I later commented on Sienna’s post, I went, I saw, and ever since I have been very much in awe! If you’re planning a big night out in SL, don’t even consider putting on your dancing shoes until you’ve seen what Fab.Pony has to offer. All those who love the recent eighties’ revival will find joy here (check out the Denim Rahrah Skirts… Fab.ulous!). Click here to visit the main store.

In the second shot, I’ve combined two necklaces; I often do this or combine a necklace with a scarf by attaching one item to the chest and one to the spine. This is possible because prim items move in the same way when attached to the chest or spine. Mixing up your prim items in this way is great for styling and creates a unique look. When attaching item to any other point then the default position, you’ll have to edit the placement afterwards, so make a copy first.

Animal Instincts…

Well life has just been hectic of late (hence the lack of recent postings). I’ve been away with Sugar Daddy again, but now we’re back at the Californian ‘des res’ for a welcome slice of home life before setting off on our travels again next week. I’ve had a selection of animal print items in my inventory for a good while now and I’ve been meaning to write a piece about them. As I’ve been having such a wild time of it, now seems like the appropriate moment to do just that! I find animal prints awfully difficult to style; they seem to make such a statement and its so easy to overdo it. This post has been a real challenge for me so I hope you like it! (No animals were harmed in the making of this post ;))

1. Tesla Hylda Boots in Brown Snake (L$399) – get them here

2. When I saw the textures on the reverse of this leotard, I just knew that it had to be photographed from behind. However, the shaping and detail on the front is just as good. It’s totally outrageous, but glorious! If you’re too chicken to bare all, my advice would be to combine it with some long boots, leggings and a jacket. Sn@tch Sex Kitten Bodysuit in Gold (Fatpack) (L$325) – get it here

3. +plus Snowtime Sunglasses in Snake (L$90) – get them here

4. This bag is truly FabulouS. It has lovely detailing on the front and the reverse has some dollar bills and a credit card inserted into the ribbon (nice touch). The pack comes with 3 animal skin finishes – Crocodile, Stag and Snake. FabulouS Hustla Bag in Croco (Fatpack) (L$150) – get it here

5. These Stunner Revolver Boots boots are usually L$450, but right now you can pick them up for the special price of L$150 at this location only and for a limited time.  Go get ’em Cowgirl!
