For Jonquil, I found this classic peplum dess from Ricielli. For those of you that may not have known, the peplum originated in ancient Greece as a loosely worn tunic and while it has changed form slightly, it’s style has endured through the centuries. Here are two great blogs, Couture Carrie and gchicnotes that have lots of great examples of peplums and some interesting history behind them. Ricielli’s mesh version features a sweetheart neckline and is very curve hugging 🙂 I paired it with black accessories, such as Ricielli’s Cowhide Black Leather tote bag (also mesh). Mood’s Dakhla Choker set and N-Core’s Emporium heels complete the outfit. My hair is D!iva’s, Sayaka2.

I have been shopping fast and furiously today, but I have been getting some awesome deals so I put together an outfit to show you some of my great finds.
Ricielli is having a 50% off sale on all of their mesh items. They have a huge selection of items, including purses, but you have to hurry the sale ends today! The purse I am wearing, the cowhide tote leather bag in Olive, is Ricielli’s group gifty (and the group is free to join!). I am wearing a jumpsuit that I purchased at Ricielli today and it is very elegant! I didn’t have a lot of difficulty fitting into it either. It required a small adjustment to make my torso less muscular, otherwise the small was a perfect fit. I love how this jumpsuit hugs my curves! My shoes are a group gifty from N-Core (another free group!). They are a “wild” version of their very popular Coquette shoe. I picked up my eyes yesterday at One Voice. They are Deep Eyes from By Snow.
The rest of outfit consists of things that were already in my inventory and as far as I know, are not on sale right now. My hair is from Catwa. My earrings, necklace and bracelets are from Mandala. My rings are from Dark Mouse. My skin is from Mons, and my nails are from Love Soul.
Happy Shopping ❤
Hey guys….guess what…..I’m Baaacccckkkk!!!! Yay! Thank you to all of my loyal readers that kept checking in over the last couple months. I really appreciate that, it makes me feel good 🙂 Well, I have missed a total of 12 weeks of Luna’s challenge. Hopefully I will be able to get caught up. I am amazed at how much as changed over the last couple months. The SL fashion community is constantly changing and evolving and is abounding with creativity!!! Well for my first post back, I am going to feature some new mesh from Hucci and Mons‘ new skin, Jelena.
This week’s color is Persian Rose, which is essentially a deep, hot pink. While catching up on the SL Fashion scene, I of course had to check out Hucci. They have quite a bit of new mesh (which I love!) . I picked up this adorable Glimpse halter and Suede mini skirt. I am wearing both in wild pink, but they have a large variety of colors available. These were both relatively easy to fit too. I fit into the small skirt without any adjustments. My small boob shape was a bit too small for the small top, but a small increase fixed that (I wish my rl body came with sliders for adjustment!). The skin I am wearing is Mons‘ newest release, Jelena. I have never purchased a skin from Mons before, but I was looking for something a little different. I tend to get stuck on my favs, Dream Ink, Pink Fuel, Glam Affair, etc. Change is good 🙂 I really like the face and body shading on this skin. It is very subtle and natural looking. I also like the makeup. I tend to favor darker,more dramatic eye makeup and Mons has a HUGE variety! I am wearing the tan version of the skin and it came with several different makeups, 2 brow options (I am wearing natural) and a cleavage option. I did purchase this lipstick separately from the basic skin pack. It was in the Dominant pack. These photos below have not been edited, other than to be cropped and a small amount of liquify to fix pointy elbows. My hair is from Catwa, my earrings are from glow, my rings are from Dark Mouse, my tattoo is from Chelle, and my nails are from Love Soul.
Happy Shopping ❤
Well, here is my Royal Purple…I found this color to be really, really hard! However, I do love the shirt I found. It is an oldie that was in my inventory, from the long defunct, Pixeldolls. My pants are Chain and Vine’s new mesh leather pants. My hair is one of Truth’s newest releases, Auralee. It is a partial mesh style, but I didn’t like the mesh portion that went over the shoulders because it didn’t actually lie on my shoulders. So, I just left it off. My earrings, rings, and nails are from Mandala. My shoes are from N-core. Have a good week everyone!!
This is just a quick bloggie to tell you that yesterday I bought these new mesh leggings from Maitreya and I can’t take them off! I love how well they fit and they make my legs look a mile long!!! They come in several colors and you can wear them with or without the attached boots. My hair is from Catwa, my earrings are from Earthstones and my shirt is from Zaara. I have more things coming this week….the new spring collection from Vera Modero and some very pretty lingerie from Taste 🙂 Keep checking back or better yet, hit that subscribe button!!!
Well, I didn’t find this week’s color, particularly difficult, however photographing it turned out to be the challenging part of this blog. My hard drive died not long ago, and I have a brand new computer and I am using the new Exodus viewer, both of which are making my life a little difficult LOL. Since I have my new computer and have started using Exodus, it is much easier for me to wear mesh now and I love it!!!! This dress is Fling from Chain and Vine. If you haven’t visited Chain and Vine, they have some very nice mesh pieces. My hair is Eva from Catwa, my skin is Lyra from Dream Ink, my jewelry is the Lia Crystal set from EarthStones, my eyeliner and eyeshadow are from Chelle. My shoes are from G Field. I am done traveling for a while and my computer is fixed, so I will be blogging more! Have a good week everyone!
Well, the last couple weeks have been extremely busy! First my hard drive died on my laptop the day before I left for vacation 😦 I was gone for 10 days and then had to buy a new laptop. What a pain it is to set up a new computer! This time, I spent a little more money so I could get a better graphics card and hopefully I can get shadows working ! I have started using the new Exodus viewer, and I love it!!!! It is very easy to use and I can wear mesh on low graphics! If you are frustrated with your viewer, I highly recommend it. Anyway…tomorrow I head out of town again (for work this time), so I am trying to get caught up on my posts for Luna’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge Posts. Have you ever been to Peqe? I stumbled across this store in a hunt, and I love it! I was there browsing around and I came across this sexy, vintagey jacket called Pacific. I am wearing it with Hucci’s new ribbon leggings. You can’t see them in this picture, but the leggings have ribbons that criss cross at the ankles with little bows in the back. Sexy and cute! My jewelry is the Amida set from Mandala. My skin is Dream Ink’s latest release, Lyra, worn with Chelle’s Adele eyeliner and Sparkle Eyeshadow. My hair is Exile’s new mesh hair, Take it off, in Autumn.
