Well today is day 3 of A Clockwork Spiral and there is just 2 more days left of the 5 day extravaganza. I apologize for not getting these posts out sooner, but I will do a really awesome one tonight so you can see the cool items available.
This morning I am featuring items by La Petite Morte, Avatar Bizarre, House of Rain, and Squeek! I thought it would be fun to run around the event and take pictures. Well I went afk for a few minutes and some delightful person had pushed me off the magical island in the sky.
As I was plummeting down, I quickly fumbled through my inventory for the landmark. I regained entrance into the wonderful event and set up my first pose. I thought to myself, “What if I was today’s impromptu entertainer on the promenade?” So I attempted to gather a audience with my lovely look, but alas it was futile.
I walked further down the promenade and jumped up on the concrete so that I can be seen by those shopping and exploring the event. I began my entertainment portion of the evening. Was I naked behind the umbrella? Or was it a lovely quick slide of hand.
I garnered a tiny audience and I continued with my entertainment portion, posing and singing in my lovely new attire.
I concluded my show and I was left once again with one of my besties in the world, sitting upon my shoulder.

I absolutely love Rockabilly fashion and when I saw the dresses that Sakide had created for The Black Fair, I nearly fell out my chair. The dress is absolutely stunning. It comes with system layer top and bottom so no peek-a-boo I see your whooo-whooo when sitting in your mesh pencil skirt. This wondrous dress is called “The Black Outfit”. My accomplice in this picture taking adventure I snagged my favorite Betty, Phire Zuhra to take pictures with me. Alas SL has been doing some funky things when I attempt to take pics and for some reason Phire just wouldn’t rezz for me at all. Maybe it is because she’s so stunning. So I also want to thank her for taking the pictures this time around.
So here is the upclose and personal picture of the two of us. As you can see I’m more into Rockabilly style than Phire but its cool she’s got the classic look down packed. That’s the best thing about this dress, you can wear it in any style and you still will look fabulous.
A side view, so you can get a great look at the leather details on the dress. The are wonderful accents to the pencil skirt, along with the skinny belt.
When we were in this final pose I started cracking up and made Moulin Rouge references. At first Phire didn’t get it, but once I explained to her what movie my silly banter was about she was cracking up with me. We dubbed this pose “She’s mine” now where is my penniless sitar player.
If you haven’t seen the adorable Penguin necklaces by [Atooly] available at SL Fashion Week then you are truly living under some rock. The good news is that all you toddledoo avatars can also buy this necklace and resize it perfectly to your shape.
As usual, there are a variety of colors to choose from. It was quite hard for me to choose just one to wear. I took my trial SL daughter with me and she loved the blue one and hasn’t taken it off yet. I opted for the red penguin.

If you haven’t heard there is a blogger’s challenge put out there by my super awesome sissy, Rors. The Bloggers Challenge can be found HERE!!!
When I think of androgynous icons, there is of course David Bowie, Brian Molko of Placebo, Chris Corner of IAMX/Sneaker Pimps fame, and the list goes on. Now I just listed male androgynous performers but there are a wide variety of female performers out there also.
When it came to this challenge, I knew I wanted to wear a skin from TRAP because to me their skins epitomize androgeny. The next thing was finding the perfect outfit. I wandered through ~Tableau Vivant~ and picked up a few things since they are still having their Grand Opening sale of 50-75% off selected items. I knew the monso shoes I had in my inventory would be perfect for the look, but when it came to what top I was going to wear that is where I got stumped.
I didn’t want to look feminine and every top I had in my inventory just seemed to do that. So I remembered I had bought one of my teenage sons this awesome vest/tshirt item from Razor and that is when my outfit fell into place.
Of course I had to accessorize my look so I added some really awesome piercings from ni.ju and a prior group gift from O.M.E.N. I swear the designer behind O.M.E.N. just likes stealing all my lindens.
Necklace: O.M.E.N – Bullet Case Crystal – Green/Blue/Pink
So this month’s Flux theme is “Tiki Time” and Sakide has a couple of items available in a variety of colors. Tops for the males and Bikinis for the females. Each come in Light or Dark versions. Of course each of the outfits come with huds to change the textures so you really get a variety of outfits in just one item.
For some reason when I saw the items, Don Ho’s song popped in my head. The sad thing is I’m not really even old enough to know this song but thanks to my parents I have heard this song throughout my childhood.
I took a pic of the female bikini. I loved how well the texturing was on the bikini. I mean I could have taken a pic of my backside but then you would be like omg Lola are you sure you are wearing a bikini, cuz yeah my sl butt is that huge LOL.
I know you guys are shocked that I ventured away from my platform to a actual sim to take pictures. I was taking pics of my lovely male avatar, but no ladies were hitting on him. I think he looks quite sexy in this Tiki inspired top.
I bet you are wondering what the heck the title means….well I’ll tell you it means my mustache!! See if you are a follower of the creations from [ATOOLY] then you would know that you can pick up some awesome mustache inspired accessories. I am only wearing the Mint Versions since I thought I’d stop attacking you guys with the color purple on my posts 😛
Coordinating a look to go with the accessories actually took me a while. I didn’t want to be EGL style for some reason and I tried executive professional style but man that is so not me. And I ended up with this look.
I apologize for wearing 2 items that you can never purchase again, see I’m a hoarder of all things Schadenfreude. The blouse and tie were from a event called “March Mint Madness” that took place on one of my beloved SL Creators, who has now left SL for good, Sim. I was actually a creator at that time so I had some stuff I could have worn with this post but I didn’t wanna scare you with my old stuffs. Anywhoo….as you can see from the picture the adorable headband and bracelets add just the right amount of cuteness to my outfit.
And if you aren’t a fan of the color “Mint” don’t worry there are other colors available because Rockstarroo GossipGirl, creator/owner of [ATOOLY], has a variety of colors for you to choose from. I bet you are wondering where you can pick up these lovely items, for this week they are available at SL Fashion Week until Thursday 8/8/13. On Friday a new collection will launch so don’t forget to get them at the stellar price.
So I’m just going to leave this picture here with all zee colors for you to stare at and then you can tp your little heart and buy them all. I swear you really do want to fatpack it all!!! 450L for bracelets fatpack or 99L each 3pack / 625L for headband fatpack or 90L each headband BUY HERE
If you haven’t guessed by now, I am an official blogger for Sakide. I am actually ecstatic to be her official blogger because she is so unique on the concepts of clothing she creates.
As some of you may know, one of a beloved designers in SL has come across some hard times. The designer never asked for help but the citizens of SL are coming to her aide. Designers have donated items for 100% to 50% donation. Alot of these creations are new or special versions.
Sakide has the lovely Lace Bonbon Dress set at 100%. As with many of her mesh items it comes with a hud that allows you to change the texture of your dress to your desired color. I loved how form fitting and sexy the dress is, the texture work is flawless.
She is also offering these lovely Mosaic Dresses in Black and White. Each version comes in a variety of colors within each hud. These items are at 75% donation each. I love the flouncy skirt bottoms on the dress and the sweetheart neckline.
The following two pictures feature items from a few vendors I picked up at the Love Donna Flora Event.
