MBA:Dressed for Success!

kitty-bedtime_004Oh, how I love a good frock. (I said frock, now stop that!)

And this, dear readers, is the embodiment of a good frock.

It’s from MOON ELIXIR for MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY and it’s a bit of a corker, as I hope you can tell.  It’s a kind of safari-style dress, so is quite formal with an ever-so-slightly popped collar, buttoned sleeves and buckled belt but then, WOAH, it’s open at the front so pretty much all your wares are on display.  There’s even the suggestion of nipples through the fabric (well, it is November after all!) which makes this rather more sexy than conventional.  I really like it; the mesh is good and the styling means that if you enjoy wearing tattoos and statement necklaces like I do then this is a great way to style them.shoes_008  I found a great pair of heels from MBA as well to team with this look, these are the ‘Sicilia’ sandals by KC COUTURE.  This is a brand that’s really come into its own during 2016, and that doesn’t surprise me one bit when you consider the quality of the releases that they’ve made this year.  ‘Sicilia’ are a real treat too; they come with an absolute multitude of customisation options in the 40 colour fat pack, including  removal of the stud embellishments should you so wish, something I haven’t encountered on similarly styled shoes.   The triple gemstone embellishment at the front looks very pretty and for L$195 you’d be hard-pressed to find a better value pair of heels that you can style so personally.  These will look great over Christmas, don’t you think?

You’ve got one day left before MBA closes for this round, don’t miss out!

MBA: An Almost Black Friday

black-friday_006MBA Bi-Monthly is still in full swing so you have plenty of time to zoom on by and treat yo’self to some glorious mesh body fashion.

Here’s a little look I created using the latest ENTICE lingerie release that’s available at the event. It’s a bit scrumptious, isn’t it?  I feel like a little Christmas pudding in this ensemble!  I love the lace skirt and lacey texture on the bra.  The fit on my Maitreya bod is good, and to add some extra va-va-voom I added my current favourite heels, GLAMISTRY ‘Rose’  and the fantastic ‘Sugar’ hairstyle that is exclusive to TRUTH VIP members. I’m a complete slut for a decent updo, this one really ticks all my boxes and because it’s a VIP gift it comes with ALL the colour HUDS so I’ll get plenty of wear from it!

Here’s your shopping list.

MBA: A Perfect Illusion

picmonkey-image

So MESH BODY ADDICTS is back for another bi-monthly round and this month is a good ‘un!  I KNOW that we all suffer from event fatigue these days because there are way too many going on in-world and it’s so hard to keep up with all of them (thank goodness for SERAPHIM!) but I promise the MBA BI-MONTHLY is totally worth your time!

For a start,  if you don’t visit you’ll miss out on this fabulous dress from CUTE OR DIE!  It’s certainly incredibly sweet and very simple; a plain dress with a tight, vest style body accompanied by a slightly more voluminous skirt.  So far, so simple, but then turn around and look at the back and you’re in for a surprise! I love this scooped, open-back style that is finished with a large ribbon.  It struck me that this can be worn in a myriad of ways (and would even make a very effective Bridesmaid dress if you’re so inclined) but I chose to go for a fresh and funky urban feel.  I added these cracking ‘Sabrina’ sneakers from ILLI which are just bursting with detail; big and satisfyingly chunky with contrast colours and there are even see-through air pockets built into each sole which add a neat retro vibe.  To accessorise I threw on some favourite ATOMIC shades and my favourite tattoo-style choker, but it’s the hairstyle that really brings this look together,  and I’m wearing an absolute belter. This is the newly released ‘Battlefield’ hair from SPELLBOUND  and I’m in love with it.  That’s surprising to me as I initially thought this hair  wouldn’t suit me, but, of course,  I threw on a demo and I’m so glad that I did because I immediately fell in love!

The style is pretty simple really; hair piled up to add volume at the crown is capped with a sweet, messy bun and finished with two plaits that frame the face, but what really sets this style apart are the funky touches; you can add hair rings to your plait and they look awesome! It sort of feels like they shouldn’t work, but they really do and enhance the look perfectly, giving it a street-style vibe.

I really love this look.  It’s not very often I wear white but it works so well here,don’t you think?  The ribbon and the trainers really pop with colour against the bright white dress and the hairstyle just complements it all incredibly well.

Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly: SALT & PEPPER 'Skye'Incidentally, if you’re looking for something to wear underneath then be sure to check out this fantastic lingerie at the event from SALT & PEPPER. This is ‘Skye’ and that’s a very appropriate name, it’s certainly angelic with the straps adding a naughty element. Scrumptious, isn’t it?

FETISH FAIR: Here Kitty Kitty!

Snapshot_002What is a Fetish, exactly?  Well, the dictionary definition is thus: a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc. “a man with a fetish for surgical masks” Yeah, you can get things to cater to that particular whim in Second Life.  You can find pretty much every fetish catered to across the grid, and you’ll find some of them amply represented at THE FETISH FAIR.  Now, truth be told, I don’t think I have any fetishes unless you count an acute  longing for a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake, but there’s nothing sexual in that. (In fact,  I dare say a good slice of Victoria Sponge could be considered better than five minutes of lustful behaviour in some quarters; wash it down with a mug of PG and I’m sold but anyway, I digress..)Snapshot_006I’m not into fetishized behaviour, but I can appreciate that some people are and I do understand the impact that fetish culture has made on fashion and lifestyle in the modern age. Corsets have gone from being mere undergarments to being perhaps the most easily accessible (and adaptable) item of fetish wear, and there are plenty to be found at the event.  There genuinely is something for everyone, but I really liked this corset from WONDERLOST that I picked up at the event.  I like the contrast leopard print at the front (it always has to be leopard print, you should know that by now!) and the straps on the thighs.  I paired it with a mask that I found and naturally had to have; this is the cat mask from BITCH FACTORY that is available at the event. I like the open structure of this, and it looks like it would sit very well with the haute couture crowd.  I have to go back to FETISH FAIR 2016 because it was busy and I’m sure I’ve missed loads of stuff (correction, I KNOW that I have, check out Seraphim’s coverage HERE) but I was pretty sure I fancied a change from boots to go with this look. Snapshot_007.jpgLucky for me then that GLAMISTRY released some excellent heels that can easily adapt themselves to a fetish theme.  The ‘Camilla’ heels feature eyelets and cords that actually give a shibari feel, and even though aren’t sold at the event they’re a perfect match.  I chose mine to match and perfectly coordinate with my outfit; styling them in black with matching cords and adding a red Laboutinesque sole. The little suede tag on the cord can also be coloured to suit your whim and is ever so suggestive of a blindfold. The fact that they’re even called ‘Camilla’ fills my head with images of dominatrix galore…Snapshot_008If there was ever a pair of shoes designed to make you utter the phrase “Yes, Mistress!” these would be it I think!
