Ok so I have been hoarding these items all month in my inventory and well my health has been quite dismal but I wanted to show you 3 looks that I created from the items I attained from my purchases. I love shopping for RP clothing, what I dislike is being followed by someone using a translator harassing me and telling me what I should and should not buy XD I told him to kindly go away with some other expletives in Spanish XD.
Anywhoo…my first look focuses on the necklace (collar) and bindi by Folly. As usual Folly does not falter with only one variation, you can customize the items to any metal texture as well as gem textures. Folly also has a wide variety of princess dresses available for purchase but I bought this dress before I realized there were princess dresses in the Folly booth.
My second item I want to showcase is a brand new hair release that is a joint project between the two masterminds behind ploom and Koy Hair. They made this lovely mermaid-esque hair and =Kio= made these amazing mermaid accessories that looked really great with the hair.
The last item I want to showcase is these lovely Riven Wings by the creator Selos Dae of TRAP. Seriously, she is learning mesh and rocking it hardcore. I am also wearing a new release by Ni.Ju called “Smudgy Fingers” which are SLINK appliers for your nails as well as hand tattoos. They come in a variety of colors.
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 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
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.

I know you have heard that hair officially opened this past Saturday, and I was lucky enough to get a walk-thru before the official opening. I didn’t realize there were so many hair creators and new ones I had only known for their other creations in SL.
So really these are some of the favorite ones I picked up. I figured I’ll time out the posts a little better in the future but this will be another pic heavy post. Please don’t kill me. I tried really hard to take greqt quality pictures. I’m going to post the outfit details below each pic and at the end of the post I’ll post the items that are worn constantly thru all of the photos.
