I have 3 new releases today, Brands! Suitable for all skin tones, they sit perfectly on the pelvis and are copy only. Available on marketplace for gifting (still organising my MP store so only newer stuff is available atm). More to come, and requests taken!!
Here I am again, 5am blogging FTW!!! Minime has just gotten over a nasty bout of Gastro, which has seen me spend the last 2 days washing every bed set in the house a couple of times over, scrubbing and disinfecting everything in sight and cleaning up projectile vomit….I’m just so fashion :P I’m still trying to get my bodyclock back to normal after waking every couple of hours to hold her hair back for her, hence my shopping and blogging at the weirdest of hours!
My dress is one of the new releases this weekend from The Seahole. If you head to the mainstore before Sunday, you can grab it at a heavily reduced price. I got several colours and theyre all just as beautiful. The hair is just adorable, new from Elikatira. Theres something so cute about braids about to fall out, it’s a style that works incredibly well in SL. This one sports a colour change headband and elastics.
The bags are from House Of Fox, a store I discovered at the Ch1c event. You have to fatpack them, it’s impossible to buy just one! My gorgeous shoes are from Ricielli. I love this store, although I hadnt been there for the best part of a year. The clothes always looked so amazing, but never ever fitted me right, even after modding. Now they have nifty resize scripts which makes it much easier for me to work with the prims. My 2 gripes about the shoes are 1) there are no demos, and 2) there are no fatpacks. Other than that, the textures are outstanding and the choice of colours is great.
I’ve paired the Muse Blouse from The Seahole with another of my LeLutka purchases. The blouse is all floaty chiffony gorgeousness and comes with a matching bangle…yay!

Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”
Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again.”
“I’m sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high;
Will you rest upon my little bed?” said the Spider to the Fly.
“There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin,
And if you like to rest awhile, I’ll snugly tuck you in!”
Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “for I’ve often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!”
Said the cunning Spider to the Fly, ” Dear friend what can I do,
To prove the warm affection I ‘ve always felt for you?
I have within my pantry, good store of all that’s nice;
I’m sure you’re very welcome — will you please to take a slice?”
“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “kind Sir, that cannot be,
I’ve heard what’s in your pantry, and I do not wish to see!”
“Sweet creature!” said the Spider, “you’re witty and you’re wise,
How handsome are your gauzy wings, how brilliant are your eyes!
I’ve a little looking-glass upon my parlour shelf,
If you’ll step in one moment, dear, you shall behold yourself.”
“I thank you, gentle sir,” she said, “for what you ‘re pleased to say,
And bidding you good morning now, I’ll call another day.”
The Spider turned him round about, and went into his den,
For well he knew the silly Fly would soon come back again:
So he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly,
And set his table ready, to dine upon the Fly.
Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing,
“Come hither, hither, pretty Fly, with the pearl and silver wing;
Your robes are green and purple — there’s a crest upon your head;
Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead!”
Alas, alas! how very soon this silly little Fly,
Hearing his wily, flattering words, came slowly flitting by;
With buzzing wings she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew,
Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue —
Thinking only of her crested head — poor foolish thing! At last,
Up jumped the cunning Spider, and fiercely held her fast.
He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den,
Within his little parlour — but she ne’er came out again!
And now dear little children, who may this story read,
To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne’er give heed:
Unto an evil counsellor, close heart and ear and eye,
And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly.
The Spider and the Fly
Tableau Vivant – The Caged Stage
I did warn there would be a part 2 to my shopping spree!!! This post has been sitting in drafts for a bit, the weather here has been so lush, that sitting inside to finish writing was not appealing to me at all. However, with so many prettys to show, I knew it was time to pull my finger out :P
I love love this tunic from So Many Styles! From the fit, to the texture it suits me down to the ground. Although it’s long enough to be worn as a dress, with some smexy heels, I dressed it down this time with some awesome skinny jeans.
Absolution is a new to me store, and this cute little plaid dress won me over. A quick warning though, there are no glitch pants included, the dress is on the jacket layer only. You do get 2 different lengths of skirt, and an alpha layer included if you prefer to use that instead of fiddling with sculpty modification.
Linen pants are just so summer nights to me. Cool and comfortable after a long hard day at the beach or by the pool. I paired these ones with a stunning top from The Sea Hole, which again includes an alpha layer.
Last but not least, the most adorable girly dress ever!! This one is from Priss. The soft pink is just beautiful and I adore the flower detailing. This brings me to the end of this particular shopping spree, my Milk Motion one is next :P

I’ve been so inspired lately, since making shadows work. At first the battle was getting them to show up, then it was getting settings I liked. After that it was making a kinda studio area that was open enough so that shadows still worked. Then later still it was making that area as pretty as a picture (pun intended :P) All this wittering does have a point I assure you! While wanting to make my spiffy new studio even moar spiffy, I knew it was the time to go through my huge props and poses folder and utilise some of the gorgeous stuff I had left to languish in there. It was also around this time I had a major meltdown when I realised that folder, and all of it’s contents were missing from my inv. Several fixes later and it still hasnt come back, so I was down about 50,000L’s worth in inventory and very emo to say the least.
So off to xsteet I went and found a great free pose prop thing. That was so gorgeous I went to the main store, and perved the creators profile. That led me to The Circle Project, as the creator had a special pose scene there (to be shown at a later date!) Once that was safely filed away, it was time to clothes shop baby!! The first store I went into was pesca, and the Haori1 immediately caught my eye. I havent seen anything like it before in SL and it reminds me of something my best friend wore for years and I always wanted to nab!
Then it was next door into The Sea Hole, where I had some kind of buying frenzy. I pretty much picked up at least one of everything that was in there, sometimes two….but we wont talk about my addictions today :P
The perfect peasant blouse!!! Absolutely gorgeous, and soo works with a pair of flares.
Seriously, who can resist showing off their legs with a supercute playsuit? This one comes in an array of textures, I chose the girliest one I could! I have many more purchases to show from this particular outing, but I had to split it up as I really did shop till I dropped!

This is my second summer in the UK, and inevitably I end up longing for Bondi Beach, coffee at Curious Cafe, salads at No Names and picnics at Tamarama. There isnt a cafe lifestyle here, and I really miss taking minime for a baby cino and always finding someone to chat with. It’s around about this time that I find myself drawn to stores in SL that remind me of home, if not with their content, with their name. Tram is one such store.
Such gorgeous, whimsical clothes, all slouchy socks scuffed knee cuteness. The Piping Shirt and Necktie remind me of spending a long day at work, then coming home and leaving a clothing trail down the hallway to the bedroom. My first shot captures Ash halfway through that process :P
This cardigan is the perfect cover up for chilly spring/summer nights. There are great texture choices, all very resonably priced. The shorts are from Kitties Lair and omg are they sexy. Get the pack and you’ll see what I mean!
The hair is a lovely group gift from Tram (other gorgeous styles are upstairs in the store). My skin is Natasha – Hayfever. Red nose from blowing it, and rosey cheeked from catching the sun. It was my Skin and Shape Expo skin, but I may put it out at a reduced price if theres enough demand for it. Also, check out my store for a couple of awesome photo filter skins, sepia and black & white. I’ve set them out for 10L, so grab em if you didnt get a chance to get them from the expo.

I have a pretty spectacular inventory, after over 4 years inworld and a pretty hardcore shopping addiction I really love the pieces of SL history I’ve accumulated along the way. I’m feeling nostalgic as once again Inventory Episode has hit a milestone. My little blog is 3 years old, and although it’s been terribly neglected for the best part of a year, I do love it so. To celebrate, I thought I would show just a couple of my favorite things from the last 3 years, new and old favorites.
In 2009, LeLutka put on a huge and quite incredible fashion show, Fashion Experiment. I was lucky enough to be invited, though due to timezone bullfuckery I couldnt attend. I did spend up a storm though, totally falling in love with all the pieces from that release. Two years later, these releases still hold their own, showing just how ahead of itself as a brand LeLutka was back then. I love the structure of the dresses, the sexiness of the pants, and of course, the military feel of the Postal jacket still rocks my world! Shown above is Raven, that I have beautifuly accessorised with the amazing Harness Gag from VR Foundry. Another product ahead of it’s time, an award winner in ’06, it’s the gag other BDSM aficionados base their own on (albeit surreptitiously…bad bad copy botters). This gag can match any outfit and any avatar as it has the nifty advantage of being modifiable, something Vivian feels very strongly about. As for the features…I’ll let you road test those yourselves :P
Postal shown above, ticks all the boxes for me. Pairing them with the Mithra pants was a no brainer, stunning leather, gorgeous fit, and knee pads!!! It also gave me a chance to slip into the beautiful platform pumps from J’s. They are perfection, from the blood red sole to the shape of the platform, love love them. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my favorites as much as I have enjoyed wearing them!
