Friends and Poses

I have to admit, one of my favorite things about coming back has been seeing what success stories some of my old friends and colleagues have become.  I’m so proud of so many of them! When I found out that Mavi Beck was making poses now for Miamai, I became super excited and couldn’t wait to use them for a blog.  Then, I ventured to Osakki for the new opening and I became completely inspired to dress up.  I ran into a good friend (Beyonce) and she told me how much she loved reading my blog and I knew what I had to do.  I had to write!  I always have been in love with the creations at LaGyo so I was so excited to see SO many new designs.   Gyorgyna has just blown me away with all her designs and needless to say I have a very long shopping list.  LeeZu has always been one of my favorite stores, and it was my favorite job I ever had in SL (I was so broken hearted when I had to leave).  The textures are still amazing and the jeans have quickly become staples for my wardrobe.  The Inaya skin is something new for me, and I am IN LOVE!  (I don’t know if I’ll be changing that anytime soon) 🙂

 I’m not even going to try to cover it up, I don’t know what the current SL trends are and I certainly haven’t been able to keep up with what has been blogged and what hasn’t.  I just hope you enjoy my style and continue reading. 🙂  (I promise I will get caught up at some point)

The Things I’ve Learned

I spent alot of time away from SL.  I needed to focus on RL, hell – I’m still focusing on RL.  Now I’m needing the escape from reality and I crave SL again.  The best escape for me was always blogging – please forgive me as I’m a little rusty in the writing and styling departments.

So, did I learn anything with my time away.  You betcha! 

1. A month in this world is like a year, and a year is well.. an eternity.

2. Don’t call it a comeback – I stated a comeback early this year, that didn’t last.  I don’t know what I’m calling this…

3. Black and White really are my favorite colors.  Sorry y’all.  I wish I liked lots and lots of different colors in my wardrobe.  I just don’t.  My everyday clothing is nearly all black and white with a little extra thrown in.  

4. Friends.   I don’t know what I’ve learned.   The friends in RL aren’t loyal, and the friends in SL delete you while you’re away.  

5. SL doesn’t have pain and sickness.  I like that. That’s why I want to be here now.

An entirely different look for me, you all know how I just love playing around with me looks.  Lots of new goodies in this outfit!  First off the hair.  Glorious newness from Vanity Hair by Tabata Jewell.  I love Vanity Hair.  Tabata has an amazing gift for capturing movement in her hair, and I’m never dissapointed.  Vanity Hair definately makes heads turn towards you.  I experimented with a much different and darker skin tone because I am still just obsessed with these new Chaisuki skins.  Beautiful!   These lovely poses are not yet released, and are part of  a project that my very favorite pose designer is working on.  I’ll be showing you more of these and letting you in on who made them as these are developed. 🙂

Once Upon A Time (A Story of Marly)

Once Upon A Time in a small town called Pleasantville in the land of Polly Jean their lived a girl named Marleen Vaughan. Marleen was not what the townspeople had come to know her by, and in fact, everyone called her Marly.
Marly was a friendly girl. She was constantly surrounded by people who had come to love her. The ones that did know her and love her were always guaranted a wonderful time of laughs, sincerity, and compassion with a little sprinkle of vulgarity mixed in. Time with Marly was always a good time had by all.
But, this isn’t a story about how Marly was a great person, or great friend; in fact, this girl named Marly had a special talent. Marly’s talent made her famous in the world of Second.
Marly made the world beautiful by designing things for all the inhabitants to wear, and wear them proudly they did. Marly had so many love her designs that she opened a shop called Marly’s. From that day, all could come and enjoy her creativity and designs.
Marly was a lovely girl, but in fact like so many in the world was what some might call strange. ,To yours truly’s surprise, Marly would never allow compliments from her friends and loved ones about her amazing talents. And so, it was on one beautiful Sunday that someone named SugarKane set out to tell the story of Marly. I beautiful story of talent and friendship to last through the ages, and be told across the lands…

Just hanging out in the streets of SL

It never fails, everytime I’m dressed totally casual I get invited to a posh place and have to completely change my outfit. Luckily, with this one I didn’t have to do too much changing. One of my favorite new pieces of my wardrobe for this spring is the new jean jacket from Coco. It’s simply fabulous! It can be dressed up or down so easily with the awesome sculpted collar. I can’t take off the new curio vixen skins that I received as a gift from Gala. Simply amazing… These are some of the best skins I have ever seen. It says alot that I haven’t changed my skin in days! And, I have to drool over the new Elle F hair by Launa Fauna just a little bit. It’s a beautiful updo (and I tested the lag factor at the Clothing Fair, and it is fabulous) The price is just right too. You get it in all colors for under 200L.

Maitreya Magic


The only thing worse than taking a vacation from SL and needing to shop everywhere to catch up on all the releases you missed is more new releases. But, I have to say that the Maitreya new releases are definately not a bad thing, they are amazing and pure magic. I rarely buy the colors that are on display but I fell in love and had to buy it. The colors complimented each other so nicely. I paired it with an old favorite pair of jeans from League which have remained some of my most worn jeans for quite some time.
And this outfit brings an end to my Valentine’s Day outfits. I survived the entire day without wearing red or pink. I urge everyone to go and spend some $ on something they love.

Soft in Brown

This sweater looked so soft and comfy that I decided to soften all the pictures as well. I’ve been completely addicted to Ce Cubic Effect lately. Now more than ever. They have perfected the knit texture in my opinion, and I’m such a huge fan of sculpted clothing. I am also in love with the new skins from Adam N Eve. Sachi sent me some demos just to tempt me, probably because she knows how weak I am. And, of course… I ran over and bought some. They are absolutely beautiful.

Bananas over *AnnaH*

I went to the Kudos Fashion show on Sunday and Annah Whitfield dropped the cutest dresses on me. Luckily they were the dresses I was ooing and aahing about on the runway. First up I give you the Camila dress in Red. Sure it looks like a summer dress, but pair it with some leggings, boots and a scarf and you’ve got one hot autumn outfit. I especially love the bows in the back. I’m like a present, all wrapped up and ready to go!

Black, my favorite color ever is the color of the second dress I tried on. The Rita dress is a beautiful strapless floor length satin dress. This dress moves beautifully, and it’s so elegant with the gloves. Great shape, beautiful texture, and again I love the bow at the waist. I truly feel like a vintage vixen.
Last but not least is the Lilith dress in bronze. Who know casual could be so elegant? I especially love the skirt on this dress. The top is beautiful and detailed. And what is especially great is that I can take the skirt off and go swimming. That’s right. The top is actually a swimsuit. Ladies, I know summer is over. But in bronze I think this dress transitions well into autumn. Be daring and take a swim in the cold water.
