Somnia Sale!

I know, I know, I'm a bad blogger. But fortunately Bel has been keeping the place alive, so I hope you'll forgive me. I have to say I've been very busy with RL, and didn't get much time to SL, let alone blog. 
But when Sanura Snowpaw announced she was having a sale, I just had to tell you about it. If you don't know Sanura, let me tell you a few things about her. Not only is she a talented designer, she's also an amazing person, who will always be there to help when needed. She's also very fond of her pets (I'm not sure but I think she has like 15 cats and dogs or something like that ^^) and animals in general. A few years ago after the tsunami in Japan, she organised the event "Fur Japan" destined to raise funds to help abandoned pets, which I was very proud to take part in. So anyway, that's Sanu for you. Well now she needs your help. 
One of her dogs, Kassie, is in need of surgery, and as you know, vets don't work for free. There's a GoFundMe if you want to help, but I suggest you show her love by buying her stuff, especially since everything in the store is 50% off. Sanu makes lovely and cheap mesh clothes, and, well, they're even cheaper at the moment. I went on a spree! But since I'm a lazy blogger, I only put together one outfit to show you. (If I happen to have time in the next few days I'll try and show more)

The Moopsie dress is a lovely and comfy autumn dress that comes in 8 different colours in one pack. It's mesh and comes in standard sizing (but I was able to fit it easily on my Maitreya Lara body, jus so you know)

The hair is the latest release from Magika, and if you haven't already, I suggest you go get the group gift that is pretty much the same hair with a witch hat (it comes in a green tone BUT if you buy the one I'm wearing you can use the HUD on the gift - so that's 2 hats for the price of one!)

Welcome back Jane

A while ago one of my favourite designers closed her store down. She stated that she would be back soon................Two years later she is back.

JANIE MARLOWE has one  of those stores that while their styles are not avantgarde they are what every well dressed fashionista should( in my humble opinion) have in her wardrobe. Well made, well thought out and well styled items that no matter what is current on the grid from phat asses to balloon breast  these will stand the test of time.

Just to prove it here is the First mesh dress I ever bought and yes it was from Jane and yes I still have it and I still wear it

As a "hello I am back" gift those that are on her subscribers list got a surprise gift in the shape of the top I am wearing in the feature.The skirt is part of her new collection.

Art meets Fashion

As a blogger  you are always looking for locations  to use as a backdrop for your fashion shots. Just like rl  models  and photographers we scour the grid for placing that will show a  nice contrast to the items we are blogging. One resource is the many many art galleries that the sl grid encourages and sometimes support.
On my travels I  came across the SomniumPhoto Art Gallery  
H2O – a photographic showcase on the basic element water Photos from Germany and La Gomera, Canary Islands.
So please enjoy this  mishmash of art meets fashion.

    Back to the roots


    I seldom mention Helena Stringer's work. Mainly because I am way more "vanilla" (as she likes to put it) than her regular style. But since she started making things that are more in my style, of course I'm going to show them to you. The talented owner of the Stringer Mausoleum released these adorable dresses for this month's round of Genre. The theme is "military", and the dresses are only 100l$ each. I had lots of fun matching the dress with things and stuff I had in my inventory. Most of it should still be around though, and totally worth a look.

    Collabor 88 - June 2015 - Post #2

    Aka, the very green one.

    I don't know why (or actually I do, but I'm not going to bore you with the details), but I don't feel like telling you much today.

    This is my second post on this month's Collabor 88, with yet more gorgeous things, mostly from the event (so either 88l$, 188l$ or 288l$)

    I must however apologise to Darling Monday, of Fri.Day, because it's my second post in a row where I blog her shoes and I tinted them both time. You should know that they are amazing as they are.

    So, without further ado, pictures!!

    Collabor 88 - June 2015 - Post #1


    Collabor 88 is probably my favourite event on the grid. It features amazing stores and, although I'm a bit disappointed that everything is not 88l$ like it used to be, I have to admit the quality of the items sold there widely make up for the slightly higher price. 

    This is the first of several posts on this month's event, because I bought so many gorgeous things that I want to show you that I couldn't do it in just one post without breaking my one outfit / one post rule.

    I'm opening the ball with the most adorable outfit, in bright pink shades. As you probably know if you've been following this blog, red is my favourite colour, in both lives. The shorts and top are from Tee*Fy, the shoes (that I had to tint slightly) are from Fri.Day, the hair from Clawtooth, the earrings from Maxi Gossamer and the poses from Marukin (not all from this round but all from C88).
