I go out walking after midnight….

TDR- Black & Blue

New round of The Dressing Room opened last Friday with a boatload of wonderful fashion items.  Today, I will be focusing on jewelry from LaGyo and Kunglers.  I paired LaGyo Asuncion jewelry set and Kunglers necklace in Copper with Tee*fy Bella Ruffles Cami in Navy and H.O.F. Leather mini in black/blue, both from Collarbor88.  LaGyo’s interlocking “X” pendant and earrings in gold is perfect for causal to semi-formal outfits, and a good transition piece for the Fall.  The Kunglers necklace with its rich Amethyst stone and copper hue chain with add pop to any outfit.  All items at TDR are between 40-70L from top SL designers, swapping out styles every two weeks.

This month’s offering at C88 are all fabulous, just buy everything.  No, kidding.  But don’t pass up Tee*fy Bella Ruffles Silk Cami in so many colors you might be tempted to purchase all of the them (like I did).  And, I love, love, love House of Fox mini leather skirt, it’s one item that I owe in RL and I’m so glad little Glory has it now too.  I can’t wait to wear H.O.F. mini with leggings or tights in the chilly SL Fall days ahead.  C88 items are on sale until August 7, 2013, hurry up already…

Spooky style for Springtime

AD-Group Gift-April, close-upWhen I saw the Angel Dessous unique black box special today, Wednesday, April 17, 2013, I thought it was a late April fools joke.  I normally never bash or say anything negative about a store or gifts.  I do not review items for stores or events because frankly I don’t believe official bloggers are objective when you are receiving gifts from designers. I only blog hunts/events or stores that I personally shop at and would like to share with my readers. The past couple of weeks I haven’t had time to juggle the real world, work, friends & family, and Second Life.  I didn’t have time to blog or participate in contest, fashion shows or spring shopping sprees.  I merely mention this because when I googled Angel Dessous and black box specials this morning, I was surprised that only Hidden Gems popped up in the search results.  Furthermore, the blog stats spike every Wednesday, so I presume that SL shoppers check out my blog to determine if they want to invest 69L in the Angel Dessous black box special each week.  My answer today is NO, unless you need a Halloween or Masquerade Ballgown in Spring.  The Angel Dessous black box special, Jovan is a black Monique Lhuillier inspired whipped cream skirt and orange corset with feather shoulders. While at Angel today, I picked up the April group gift, Pleasure, a black velvet corset with bolero fur trimmed jacket.  This lingerie set will be nice for winter evenings by the fireplace, however velvet is just not my friend during the sunny California spring nights. On the bright side, I would like to share the RUST sim, a Steampunk inspired mix area with machines, plants and elephants swaying in the breeze.  Also, I participated in the Dark Romance hunt and picked up 120 free gifts including the Wow Sophia skin worn in the photo.  Both the Rust sim and dark romance hunt are worth checking out.

Spring has Sprung!

Spring flowers are popping up to grow tall in the glow of the day.  Easter is around the corner, eggs are being dyed, and its beautiful day.  Gloria discovered an enchanted forest (Dimrill Dale) on her easter egg hunt and stops to enjoy the wonder that surrounds her while wearing her new find from Collabor88.

Collabor88 is a monthly event that runs from the 8th of each month and ends the 8th of the following month (March 8th to April 8th).  Some of the most loved designer participate in the super bargain basement monthly event offering specials for 88, 188 or 288L.  I purchased a few cute spring ensemble that I’m sure I’ll wear over and over again.

Let’s start with the canvas, Glam Affair Amberly Artic in Candy 01 (blue) for 188L.  A side note, Glam Affair recently released the Amberly skin series at the main store for 1,000L and is hosting a contest closing Friday.  I have been wearing my Amberly skin selection around the grid and will blog more about the Glam Affair Amberly contest shortly.

I also purchased D!va Flora hair for 188L, flowers in hair optional.  I’m not sure what it is with me but I can’t seem to pass up a opporunity to buy crazy skin or make-up. 🙂  The LaGyo Isabella jewelry set screamed spring to me, so I needed to make another trip to Collabor88 to pick them up.  Each piece was sold separately, total $364.  I had actually tried to get to C88 early but the sim was either full or crashed my viewer several times.  I felt pretty luck to get in this time and score great spring deals.

Belleza introduces a new line of skin: Amy

I recently found out that Belleza has a Best Buy event for the first three days of each month when a new line of skin is introduced at a bargain price.  The Amy is offered at 400L with three make-up versions in four skin tones.  There is a male version of skin also available. Belleza skin retails for 1200L each……..so, this special is soooooo awesome you could buy all three versions for the price of one.  I never knew about this special deal before and wanted to share it with my readers.  Promotion will last until Sunday, March 3, 2012 at the main store.  Go now!
