..and guys, it’s a bit of a corker!
Lots of jewellery, clothing, hair and a swanky pair of boots to tempt you this month, but for me the stand-out items have to be this absolutely fantastic frock and stunning skin.
The dress is by ‘A&A Fashion’ is called ‘Ornia’ and is all kinds of romantic; up-close it has an interesting mesh texture and dangly bits, as well as a rose decoration against the neckline. It’s rather swanksome and very romantic for snuggling with your special someone on Valentines day, and is a steal at just L$65.
The skin is also from the Dressing Room and is by ‘Glam Affair’; it’s called ‘Nina- V Day’. It’s a right bobby-dazzler and deserves to be worn all year round. As you would expect from Glam Affair this is an absolutely beautiful skin, with fabulous detail and shading in all the necessary areas teamed with totally fierce, bold black eyeliner and the reddist lips you’ll see this side of being chafed by a Raleigh Chopper bike seat…ahem. It costs just L$70 and includes two skintones in the pack. Wonderful.
To finish the look I’m sporting one of the most lovely styles that Mr Truth Hawks has created in a long time. This is ‘Bea’, ultra-long and curly with a scissor-sharp fringe and tons of options (63 streak options and two styles of fringe/bangs in each pack!) It’s a veritable Valentine’s banquet on a stick of happy and is just L$250 on the Marketplace.
..and of course they it’s just as fabulous as you would imagine…
I’m seriously loving this Odette outfit from Baiastice, comprising of shirt and shift pants. Textured to perfection, fits like a dream, makes a statement and costs just L$70. A total bargain, and it looks amazing when worn with this style from Exile, called ‘Threnody’.
For L$60 you get FOUR colour combinations in the pack; in this picture I’m wearing the ‘darkmix’ but you also get redpink, brown and blonde in the box too.
You’ll also find items from Tiny Bird, Dekade, Milk Motion and many more of the best of Second Life fashion…and I haven’t even begun to tell you about the collection at the sister store, ‘The Dressing Room’.
Can you imagine? Well you don’t have to…CLICK HERE for your taxi to The Dressing Room and HERE for The Dressing Room Blue. You’re very welcome.
If you’ve never frequented ‘The Dressing Room’
in Second Life then BOY are you in for a treat. There are two of them; the original, and another called ‘The Dressing Room Blue’
and you *must* visit both because they feature some glorious items from some of Second Life
‘s most esteemed and original designers at rock bottom prices.
It gives you a fabulous opportunity to try a famous designer’s work that you may have always wanted to experience but were a little unsure about, without going way over budget.
Here’s a prime example; I’ve never worn a ‘Your Skin & Your Shape‘ skin before and more fool me for not trying. So, I’m now wearing one and you really will have to peel it off me because it’s a ruddy corker.
In fact, It has to be one of the most seductive and alluring skins I’ve worn in a very long time.
It’s called ‘Adriana Technicolor-TDR 9‘ and it comes with an astounding list of options,: cleavage, freckles and black hairbase all included.
I’m wearing it with one of my own shapes here, ‘Sophie’ (coming soon!) and I just think it is a total bobby-dazzler, as they say in these ‘ere parts.
What really makes this skin is the eyeshadow; It’s just so unspeakably beautiful and very technicolor indeed as the name suggests with shades that are all blended extremely well, meaning that it retains a softness in the eye area that some other skins struggle to achieve. The lips by comparison are understated with adequate shading and highlight that suggest a moistness and dewy quality, but truth be told I don’t think that these are as well done as the eyes. Sod that though because no one will really be taking any notice of them. This one is all about the peepers!
Any complaints? I have just one, and that is the shading under the bust doesn’t work so well; it seems a tad wishy-washy by comparison to the striking cleavage above. I can see the reasoning behind this; the artist is trying to create an illusion of shadow but it doesn’t quite work in my opinion. That said, no one can see an under-cleavage when you’re wearing a tee can they? In other words, don’t be put off. It’s a really minor criticism and this skin is a more than worthwhile addition to your collection. I am just LOVING it.
Oh I forgot to tell you how much didn’t I?
Ahem..it’s L$70. I KNOW!!!!! Amazing huh?
Ok, moving on to the hair that I am sporting and this is also a Dressing Room find, but this time it’s from the ‘Dressing Room Blue‘. It’s called Layne and it’s by Exile, so you just know that it’s going to be awesome don’t you? You get four colours in the pack (blonde, red, black and brown) for L$60!! It’s enough to have you hopping up and down with excitement..which I did, obviously:) It’s a messy layered style with a loosely gathered pony-tail. I love the loose tendrils that frame the face, and it’s the perfect compliment to the skin.
This look is completed by the addition of a fantastic Glow Studio necklace. It’s called ‘Baked Steel’ and has a fabulous sheen to it, a very simple structured piece but by golly it’s rather bloody fabulous. Again, it’s an utterly stupid bargain at just L$50. I do like Glow Studio products very much and it’s always worth a visit for funky jewellery that will complete an outfit; fortunately TDR features a number of their items which means you can fill your virtual jewellery box for next to nowt.
It really is worth visiting both TDR locations just for the feeling of elation and smugness you get when you leave, safe in the knowledge that you’ve just got some of the best bargains on the grid and are going to look utterly astonishing.
Let’s recap; A YS & YS skin for L$70, hair for L$60 and a necklace for L$50. That’s L$180, under L$200 for the lot…unbelievable.
And to think, I haven’t even told you about the Tuli exclusive skin ( it’s yummy!)
Or the Baiastice frock (Pure couture elegance!)
