I’ve Got That Boom Boom

If you remember that Britney Spears song, then 5 points for you. I’ve got another quick post coming your way here, featuring hair from fri.day and clothing from KHUSH.

I’ve got on 2 of the more recent releases from KHUSH, the Mary Jacket and the Laced bodysuit. The jacket is available in 6 colors for L$ 150 each or you can grab the fatpack for L$ 945. The bodysuit comes in black or white lace, and in 5 colors of snake print, each one is L$ 125 or you can buy all 7 for only L$ 788.

And here’s a closer shot of my accessories and one of the newest fri.day hairs, Cassidy.2 which is available in 5 colors packs at L$ 250 each or get all the colors if you can’t make up your mind for L$ 875. I love the detail of the bobby-pin to hold the bangs back, something that doesn’t look good in many instances in SL but looks great here.

Ok, it really is a quickie today, but more is coming your way shortly!

Thursday Quickie

I’ve been pretty busy in both lives lately…so I bring you a quick look that started with the Rufflekini from Hucci by Eboni Khan. This pink leopard version was sent out through the subscription thingy, which you might be able to get delivered if you missed it. Other colors are available in the store for L$ 150. I wasn’t into wearing a bathing suit right this moment so I made it more rock n’ roll. Oh, and if you’re an SL Daily Deals member, there are some great discounts in the store, I love my SLDD membership…why aren’t you a member?

This is ending up longer than I thought, not such a quickie after all! Anyway, here’s a closer look at some of the details, like the Envy piercing from hep c. What’s great about this is that it comes in a bunch of different colors for one price, L$ 125! I’m blogging for the store now, so if you want to see what else there is make sure to have a look. New items are being added there daily, but there is much more to see in the store itself. And if you join the in-world group, you can totally hassle Johnn Balzibo to fit them for you ❤

Make It Couture

A part of what makes fashion so much fun in Second Life is the fact that you can wear anything you want, any time you want and you generally aren’t limited by budget, size, height or any other real world barrier.

The dress I’m wearing today is part of the Kunglers Couture collection from Kunglers Design. It’s called Zeta and comes in 3 color combinations, the honey & brown I am wearing as well as topaz & black and a silver & white version. They come on all layers, with 2 prim attachments (please excuse the one sticking out to the side in the photo, that’s due to the pose, not the dress). Each is available for L$ 399, just go all the way past the reception area, to the right.

Oh, and check out the sweet facial piercing I’m wearing. That’s the Angel Face piercing from Hep C by Jimbob Abruzzo/Johnn Balzibo. It comes in a variety of colors and with or without a nose ring, for a mere L$ 125 which you’ll find right at the front desk. Please don’t mind the mess, the store is currently going through renovations. I’m working on a blog for the store, so stayed tuned for news of that.

Juste Une Mémoire

Today is April 14, and that means it is Pink Shirt Day. What does that mean? Well it’s a day to stand up against bullying and say that it’s not okay. Just yesterday I saw on the news a piece about a 9 year old boy who hung himself at school because of bullying. It’s not okay in the real world, and it’s not okay in Second Life. Many of us have been bullied, myself included, and many of us have been the bullies, myself included once again. I didn’t even realize it was bullying until I was much older. Maybe that’s the crux of the issue, is someone just being mean/ a loud-mouth or bullying? Here’s a link which explains it better for all of us (thanks to Stacie Pryor at Second Style Magazine for some great links). I won’t go into specifics here, but at different times in my childhood/adolescence, I was taunted, teased, followed, whispered about, rumors spread about me and generally school was hell. It changed how I felt about myself, lowered my self-esteem to nothing and made me miserable. I also am predisposed to anxiety and depression and have battled with those since I was a kid. We, as a society, need to realize how serious and damaging bullying can really be.

To move on to a lighter subject, how about some info on the items I’m wearing today? Most things you’ll see in this post are from fri.day, the store that keeps my inventory very happy. Being that it’s Pink Shirt Day, I put together my first look starting with the pink Travelers.Tank and then worked from there. The tank comes in 12 colors and costs L$ 90 each or L$ 750 for all of them. You can wear it short or long over pants which is normally the look I go for. I’m also wearing the Tourist.Jacket which comes in 6 colors for L$ 200 or splurge and get them all for L$ 840. The skirt is the cute Vacation.Mini which comes in 7 colors for L$ 140 and the fatpack is L$ 680. The cropped tights are also a new item from fri.day, the Cutoff.Stockings come in 12 colors and are L$ 45 each or grab them all for L$ 375.

The second outfit is a departure from today’s theme, but includes more goodies from fri.day. The Reverie.Dress worn here comes with a tucked and untucked version of the tie as well as a skinny belt, and a version with no blouse. Each of the 8 color options (the blouse changes color only) is L$ 250 or you can have them all for L$ 1400. I’m also wearing full length tights this time, the Opaque.Stockings which also come in a selection of 12 colors with the price being L$ 45 each or if you can’t make up your mind, spend L$ 375 and have them all at your disposal.

fri.day Goodies Make Me Happy!

This past Friday, fri.day released four great items onto the grid. I am a big shoe fan, so I was happy to see two of them were footwear. I composed the look above with the Dream.Booties, Lucid.Belt and Dream.Catcher bag, and included a close up of the Journey.Boots for you below.  The belt and bag come in 12 matching colors, I paired them up in the picture for something more cohesive. The slim belts with the sweet silver buckle are just L$ 80 each or L$ 650 for all 12. The bags come in 3 versions each; unposed, posed attached to hand, and to shoulder. These are each L$ 180 or L$ 1500 for all of them. The Dream.Booties come in 20 colors, each is L$ 200 or L$ 2800 for the fatpack. The straps on them mimic the belt and bag details so they work really well together.

Here’s a good look at the Journey.Boots. These also come in an array of 20 colors, 16 monotone ones and 4 dual-toned ones. They also cost L$ 200 each or L$ 2800 for all 20 of them. What is great about both of the new shoe releases is that they come with the standard version including invisible prims, as well as ones that can use an alpha layer with the Second Life 2.0 viewer. I hope all designers start doing this!
