Icing was one of the first stores that I ever visited when I started SL and I liked it because of its vintage inspired looks that reminded me of old Hollywood glamor.  These new dresses are exactly that–with a beautiful one shoulder strap and an overlapping bodice weave. The dresses have a a short train which is really beautiful when dancing.  These dresses are sure to be perfect for that upcoming New Year’s Eve Party.

Happy 2011!

I’m really excited by these Viewer 2.0 make-ups and lashes.  I just recently *FINALLY* switched over to viewer 2.0 after much urging from my Boss in RL.  And…it’s starting to grow on me!  Of course, when Emerald shapes up their viewer to match 2.0 (and beyond) I will be back…but for now, Viewer 2.0 is where I’m having a lot of fun.

Cheap-Makeup was a place I stumbled upon after researching some 2.0 make-up upgrades and I am here to give you my esteemed review!  What’s great about Cheap Make-up is that there are Gacha Machines in front of each Vendor that allow you to play and receive one of the many treasured lashes or make-ups up on the board.  They are a steal for only 40L each Gacha Play!

I also fancied the fatpacks which gave me a lot of options.  This set shown is for the Shimmery Lights Make-ups and lashes.  I am wearing no additional prim lashes or tattoos in these photos, they look great!  The base skin I’m wearing is from Tuli, It’s the Hope Prototype skin from a while back.  Tuli also has some nice free base skins in store, Kalista, check them out if you want a rather clean and fresh skin to lay under these!

Enjoy these as much as I already am!

Cheers!

This weekend LG concept designers released a new skin “Pd’A-Ayil.  It’s the store’s first skin and comes in a virtually endless array of make-up styles and looks to be fit the most picky of avatars.  Being that this is LG’s first release I have a few things that I like and couple I thought the skins could improve on.

What I thought could be improved was first the light eyebrows.  I loved the graceful arch of the dark set, but the blonde set seemed to cut off part way through.  The middle picture I took compares both sets of eyebrows.  I like sometimes changing things up wearing blonde hair, but I felt like with this skin in the light eyebrows that it was far too sparse.  I would have loved to see the carry through of the dark eyebrow into the blonde.

Next, I would look into the design of the nipples.  While I know its an artistic choice, I felt like for the body the nipples were too small and the coloring on them seemed off.  They seemed even a little fetishy.  But, if your an avi that isn’t into shedding your clothes, this skin would work nicely since the rest of the body is shaded gorgeous.

What I liked about the skin was the variety of the tones and styles of make-ups.  One certainly wouldn’t be bored with the amount of choices.  I really liked the face too, it seemed to work well with my eyes and general shape.  I also like the glowyness of the skin, it seemed youthful, vibrant.

All in all for LG’s first run of skins I’m delightfully pleased.  Being a skin maker is incredibly hard and I can tell that a lot of work went into these. I’d suggest interested avis tp over and try them on for themselves, you’re sure to fine at least one skin that fits you perfectly.

Visit LG today!

[KA] Designs has released a gorgeous new Maxi Dress that is perfect for spring/summer.  I really loved the paisley print with the light accent of the turquoise, it really made the dress fun.  I could see dressing this look up with pumps and some different jewelery (like some statement jewels ala $Ganked$) would really change this look up, but I liked the lazy boho chic look 🙂  Perfect for shopping around the grid as spring fever begins to take the grid over 🙂

A big thanks to my friend Crystalin Clayton for teleporting me to this lucky chair for this fantastic skin!  This is the new lucky chair skin from *Leafy* and its in a make-up color called “fire engine”  The skin comes with both light and dark brows. The board changes only once every 20 minutes so I’m challenging you readers to get down there and make some magic happen, let’s get that board changing every few minutes, tp your friends!  Party!

I also wanted to share another new release from $Ganked$.  This necklace comes with earrings and bracelet, but I think the composition of the stones is so striking.  It reminds me somewhat of the Suri necklaces, a little abstract but very thought provoking and unique.  This set is called “Goldblooded.”

Boudoir and Ganked both have out new releases that are quite beautiful and befitting almost any fun dress up occasion!  First, Boudoir’s Calme Tristesse dress is a lovely lace top that divulges just the right amount of skin.  Besides the low neckline, the back also dips deliciously low enough to be a treat from the front and the back.  The dress also comes with a fuller, longer skirt (shown on the left) as well as the shorter, more sparse skirt (on the right).

I accented the dress with one of the many new releases from SL’s hardest working jeweler, Misti Merryman, owner of $Ganked$ jewels.  This set is called “Flutter” and it comes in both blue and pink.  I loved the shiny jewel tones of the aquamarine in this piece, I can see myself coming back to it many times for my outfits.  As always, the price at $Ganked$ is so affordable its hard not to let yourself have them all!

Visit Boudoir to pick up your Calme Tristesse dress!

Visit $Ganked$ for all the latest in gorgeous prim jewelery including my new favorite, Flutter 🙂
