Precious II is the name of this sexy dress from Sassy! that is now available at The Retreat for just $50L. Any of us that enjoy the company of pets know how very precious they can be. Recently Gospel Voom the designer behind GOS shoes suffered a tragedy when his beloved cat Archie was hit by a car. Fortunately he did survive and is now be treated for his massive injuries. As we all know this kind of care is not cheap. So to aid in the cost of his treatment there is currently an event going on at The Truth District sim to benefit him called Archie Appeal.


Many talented and generous designers have come together to offer some special items with proceeds going to help ensure that Archie receives that care he needs to recover. Right now until Sept 2nd you can shop for a great cause. Also GOS currently offering 50% off at The Truth District location, including my beloved Pimp You Pumps line. You can see these shoes featured on many of my post (read my review on MP) ,they are a real staple in my wardrobe, and worth every linden full price. Be sure to try a demo to fully appreciate all the great things these shoes have to offer. Right now get these lovely gems half price and help a great cause at the same time. Also available at this event this wonderful Be.Hind pose set by Bent also featured in my last post. Please support this worth while cause and show how real people care about real people in second life.

Tokyo Street Fashion


It has been a while since I have been able to post, but I finally got a chance to take a breath so lets get right to it. This lovely Mistress X dress by 1Hundred, has some classic elements like the bustled skirt ( also comes with plain skirt, not shown) along side more Gothic inspired features such as the black netting. Right now you can pick this jewel up at The Retreat for a cool $50L. Don't forget The Retreat is having a flickr styling contest and you can win up to $500L, with cash prizes for the top 3. Read more about it here.


Adding a little showgirl sparkle to this look these stroke of luster lashes and Akimasa daiyamondo deco jewels, both by Lucky #7. Filthy's group gift skins for Aug has just a peek of the teeth and is the perfect foundation. There is a cost for this group but worth it as you get great new skins every month (with skin tone options for MEN and women). Topping off this fun look QPT129 hair by Boon


The wonderfully creative poses used in this post are from the Be.hind collection by Bent. There are 10 poses in the set, they were fantastic for showing off the bustle on this dress, be sure you check these out to see the full range. All the pics in this post were taken in Virtual Asia.

Summertime will be gone fairly soon and we'll start transitioning into fall... a lovely time of year filled with soft muted colors and snuggly fabrics. And of course along with a season change comes a wardrobe change! I stumbled across this gorgeous clothing collection aptly named "Transitions," at dirty.little.secret. This collection has every beautiful thing you need, from glasses to lingerie, to sweaters, pants, skirts, shoes, and everything in between. The wonderful thing about the Transitions Collection is that everything coordinates perfectly! Oh, and did I mention how the clothes look simply amazing on the lithe & sexy Ninah Shape by ANNA Shapes? With her curvy hips, pouty lips, teeny waist, and legs for miles she is simply a stunner!!

My sweet little Pyrrhic looks so alluring in the Deep V-Neck Top & Suspender Socks in Seafoam, the Strapless Bra & matching Hipster Panties in Paisley, and the sleek mesh Transitions High Heels in Navy. The cute Crystal glasses in Fern perched neatly on her nose complete her scantily clad look.

Pyrrhic loves to change up her look often, so the Merlyn.Bitter.Heaven skin by Dulce Secrets was a no brainer. She still has a kiss of tan skin to carry her through the chilly months and the makeup is delicate & whispery. Of course we can't change our wardrobe without a new hairdo as well! And the Aella mesh hair in Jet Black by Decoy fits beautifully with this laid back look.... choppy, wispsy layers frame her pretty face and gracefully cascade down her shoulders. The dainty Tangled necklace in River by FuLo, in shades of translucent sparkling blues & greens, are a bewitching complement to this ensemble!

And finally, no look is complete without a new manicure. The Medium Garnet Teardrop nails by Moondance Boutique pair up beautifully with it all, from the deep slate color of the nails to the shimmering garnets frosting the tips, creating a look that is perfect for transitioning into Fall!
