Seeing Red

I fell in love with this Starlet dress from Blacklace. It’s gorgeously textured and sexy as hell. Even better? Through Thursday of this week it’s only L$99! This is also a limited edition color, for their weekly TGIF special, so grab it while it lasts. To find the dress, use the TP board and go to the Gifts area. Sale event items are also near there!

I built the look around the dress. My hair is new from Truth. I desperately wanted a straight bob haircut as a child, not understanding that without hours of work such a look is impossible for a girl with natural curls. I was crushed when I learned this, and to this day I admire straight bobs of all lengths. My shoes are from Gos Boutique and are available at this month’s edition of FaMESHed. I love polka dots. If something has polka dots, the odds are high I will want it!

Seeing Red

I took advantage of this gorgeous red to show off one of the many, many nail huds available from Flair for SLink hands and feet. This is from set 33, and I love the detail. This also lets me show off my new engagement ring. I had a ring my husband bought me in 2009, when we were still new to SL. It had 5 diamonds, one to symbolize each year we’d been married in RL, since we got married in SL on our 5th RL anniversary. Unfortunately, like many engagement rings in SL, it was no copy and quite a while ago, I accidentally deleted it. When I mentioned it still made me sad, he bought me a new ring! This is from Exquisite Jewelry, and the side stones have multiple gem options. I went with ruby to match the red vibe! Also… I have to say this, because it’s kind of uhm, prominent in this picture… this Blacklace mesh dress creates one awesome ass! Which is cool, since my avatar’s butt is kind of uhm… lush… without mesh, and sometimes I think mesh makes it too flat.

Nails

Finally, I am so utterly in love with my new skin from Glam Affair. This is Cleo, and Glam Affair is part of the Cosmetics Fair, which opened this weekend and features lots of designers. One of the offerings from Glam Affair is a set of lipsticks for Cleo (I’ve tested them with a couple of other Glam skins and they seemed to work on them, too). These are available individually or in a fatpack. I grabbed a few, and I’m wearing one in this pic. I love semi-matte lips. This lipstick has just a touch of shine/shimmer to make your lips pop, and the deep, rich red is a lovely shade that will work on a variety of skin tones. My eyes are from the new Ascension line by IKON. I’ve been in a browns/greens kind of place lately, but this deep blue spoke to me and I thought it would work well with all the red.

Cupcakes & Tiaras

So, it dawned on me a few days ago that my blog must be nearly One.Whole.Year old. I was wrong. It’s already past that milestone! I wrote my first post on May 3, 2012! I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I’ll be honest. When I started this project, I really didn’t expect to last more than a couple of months. I figured I’d get bored. On the contrary, I love it far, far more than I could ever have imagined. I get to be creative in ways that were never really options for me before SL, and I really just enjoy it so much!

I’m not the only one celebrating… FaMESHed just marked its first birthday, too! I was about as shocked by that as I was to realize my blog had turned one! It’s like the year just blew past us. I guess it’s true what they say about time and having fun!

So, to celebrate these occasions, I donned some of the awesome items available at FaMESHed’s birthday round. Definitely check it out before it ends… there’s so much awesome to be had! I love the SySy maxi dresses. There are a ton of color options, including darker colors, but I opted for this pretty pastel lavender shade. I had to use one of the Cupcake poses Embody released recently, because our store is celebrating a birthday, too! It’s been three years since we opened, and I’m kind of flabbergasted by that. My tiara is also a FaMESHed item, from Maxi Gossamer. The gorgeous curls I’m wearing are courtesy of Alice Project, also for FaMESHed’s birthday. I love curls, so this was a must have hair as soon as I saw it.

Recently, I indulged and bought SLink hands and feet. With the new appliers and nail huds all over my Flickr stream and on the feeds, it was too tempting to resist. I hadn’t previously bought them because I found them tricky to tint. Which was odd because I’ve worn plenty of SLink in the past and never had issues. But then again, in those days I wasn’t changing skins like four times a week, either. So I had to tint once, not every time I changed. #problemsofaskinaddict

Anyway, I love the SLink hands and am having a lot of fun with my nails. I also LOVE the Cae jewelry set for FaMESHed, and I wanted to show that (and the nails) off, and this pose from E9 was perfect for doing so! Oh, and on my left hand is a ring from Exquisite. Years ago, when Rad & I decided to get married in SL on our 5th RL wedding anniversary, he gave me a ring. Like two years ago I deleted it. I happened to mention to him recently that I still was bummed about this, and he went out and bought me a new ring. The side stones are texture change (this is the tanzanite option) and I love the ring – and my husband – so much!
