Dulce means sweet and that is just what this Aphrodisia set from Seldom Blue is. IndigoBlue Dagostino is one of my favorite lingerie designers on the grid and she doesn't disappoint in her newest set. This lovely set features sensuous satin with classic black lace overlay. Delicate bows accentuate the garter belt that holds up the silky lace top stockings. However, the real show stopper of this outfit would be the prim options that are available. Here I am wearing the corset option, there is also a skirt option and a corset/skirt as well. Simply stunning. Right now for a limited time you can pick up this caramel set for half price. Also be sure to check out her exclusive classic collection and special gown made just for Freebie Fashionista at The Retreat.
Here you see the limited edition 1L version, although it doesn't have a corset it does have sexy fishnet accents and lace trim on the bra. The glamorous Lyric skin pictured above and seductive Rowena skin pictured here are both new releases currently on special at Dulce Secrets. Dulce Secrets recently moved to a brand new location, with lovely grounds and a free public photo studio with some of the finest photography equipment in sl available to all. Lots of mini hunts and fun coming soon, I would like to take this time to wish Anne Maertens a very happy 5th rez day. I have known her most of my sl and she is honestly one of the loveliest people you will ever meet in any world. There are direct tps to Dulce Secrets as well as the free photo studio available at The Retreat. Hope to see you all there sometime.
See you around the grid

Once upon the time... ok ok... it was an early morning last week and I got geared up to go hunting. I came across this big wagon in a meadow. Full with barrels and bottles it looked kind of fun. There was no one around so I sat down, rather curious, to wait for the owner's return.
The Flawless Spring Sale is on now. Over 50 carts set up by great creators, each offering an exclusive items for only $50L. There is also a hunt with about 50 or so prizes hidden around in flowers . One of the awesome items you can pick up at this fantastic sale is this lace Friction dress by Artic Storm. Shown here in the mini dress option, it comes with a few skirt and pants options. All yours for $50L. You can also pick up this FreshBreeze Sunkiss skin by Modish, shown here with Crystal lipstick 3 by Pekka now at Stuff in Stock. The Flawless Spring Sale is on til the 29th. So make sure you get down there and check it out.
The tranquility necklace and delightful dangle earrings, are another example of more great jewelry from Addiction Jewelry. The necklace was on special it comes with 2 versions and the earrings were one of 3 gifts there. I am sure that you are all aware that The Pose Fair is going on now. One of the must have items you can pick up there is the Tillies Posing stand with Hud. I bought this when I was new in sl and to photography. It is seriously some of the best linden I ever spent and it is even better now!!. I personally use it for everything. It comes with a hud that controls all aspects of the posing, positioning of the stand, camera lock and options on the included photo back drops and lighting. Too many options to list here but please you owe it to yourself to check it out. Also the newest version of that stand now comes preloaded with poses from Glitterati and Diesel Works. So be sure you check out the info on this amazing stand. Well that is all for now. So much more to cover.. So ....

This is a holiday weekend for many, the nice spring weather is calling us all outside. This lovely Eros Spring gown by Lili's Couture Collection seemed like the perfect thing to wear to the resort. This 2 piece gown features a wonderful peacock print in pastel colors that is as fresh as spring itself. Currently on special for $125L, the gown alone is worth that and more but that is not all you get. This special package includes the gown, shoes, prim hands, make up, jewelry, lashes and eyes (not all shown). It normally sells for $650L, but until April 9th ... you can get it for the special price of only $125L. Here I show it with the Metalic Violet nails I picked up in the Dress Me Purple hunt at PurpleMoon going on until April 15th.
The Pink Star skin by WOW is a group gift and looks great with the make up included with the dress. I picked up this Vicky hair from Truth at the Truth District. It is a little short notice but today is the last day of the 50% off spring sale at the Truth District. So if there is anything you are wanting from that sale, you better get it today. Ok guys not long for all these offers so better jump on it, before it is too late.
Hair: Truth @ Truth District
Dress: Lili's Couture Collection
Jewelry: Ticky Tacky
Poses: Diesel Works- New Colleen poses
Despite recent criminal implications on this here blog, I am an innocent man. Well, mainly innocent, I am guilty of something - getting way too excited at packages of stockings! Not like that though, perverts...
No, I have been giddy with time travelling goodness! In the fading embers of La Venta Eventa was a treat - an 18th century period outfit from A:S:S. But as fun as that was, it was just a taster. Yes, just in time for chocolatey Easter fun we can comment on Photos Nikolaidis's ever expanding A:S:S, and he takes us back in time with his new store A:S:S Decades. That noise you just heard? It was a squee through the ages!
So... where to start? Well the store is still petite just now, but there's a fair amount happening. When the sun finally arrives I may grab one of the nightshirts, but even with the stockings they'll be too chilly just now. Instead, another Louis! You can pick from many colours (179L each), but let's be honest here, if you're going to start a new life as a romantic the only sensible choice is rose. Which is why it's surprising I have it actually, but I do!
Now me being me it's never too simple. Given my trip to the gallows I thought it just a bit tasteless to be too flamboyant, I wanted to be a little sombre so as not to upset my fans and groupies. That needed some serious thinking, luckily the new store had everything I needed (except the shoes...) and I grabbed the Gerard Shirt at just 75L which has a few less ruffles and seemed more appropriate. I also changed my stockings. They're rather nice mid-thigh offerings btw, Louis was white with a subtle rose emblem, but I went plain green as I felt they compliment the greens in the knickerbockers and vest rather well myself. Just 50L for a pack of 5 (and yes, the butterfly ones may be a fun summertime purchase if you ask me) so you won't break the bank if you get a hole in the toes.
"But wait" I hear you cry, "with all this spending have you missed the 'Freebie' in the URL up there?" Well have no fear, for my super snooping nose found not one freebie in the new store, but eight! Okay, technically it's two packs, but one does have seven freebies in so don't be picky, they're free okay! First up, gloves. Simple, elegant, what more do you need? Secondly, Mouches!
No not the moustache, the mouche! The beauty spot above my eyebrow! They were very popular in the 18th century and thankfully your freebie fatpack includes a notecard telling you the meaning of all the different locations. This was handy for me. I tried the flirtatious one but the hangman didn't seem to appreciate my charms, so I switched to dignified instead. That'll teach him.
So there you have it. A new store, full of old stuff. It's great! Even if being associated with Margaux gets you hanged...
