See you at the District!

What's that noise? Could it be the sound of your $Lindens shaking because they know they'll be leaving you soon when you get over to the new Truth District? Why, I believe it is!

Truth District Promo Ad

Oh my gosh, you guys. I know, I know. Malls come and go in SL and rarely are they amazing. But this new shopping district is so wonderful! Conceptualized by Truth Hawks and managed by Sophia Harlow, I might be a little biased as I love the two of them to pieces, but I'm being sincerely honest when I say this is a shopper's heaven! Check out the list of resident designers!

INDI Designs
Je Suis
The Sea Hole
Trompe Loeil Prefabs
Truth Hair
Whippet & Buck

Could you die? The sim was designed by Cory Edo, and it's just oh so lovely! And for the opening [tomorrow, July 1st!!!], several of the designers have a special gift in their stores for members of the Truth District Update Group. Including a lovely hair named Becky from Mr. Hawks himself.

Style - See you at the District!

Please join the in-world group for all the latest news about the Truth District, and we'll see you out there tomorrow!!

Easy Breeze

Are you looking for that perfect tiny beach house for your parcel? Yes? Then look no further than Funky Junk at the Designers Remix!

Style - Easy Breeze

Breeze is just so sweet and open. It's just great for setting up on your beach, or take it lakeside, or you could even sink it down a bit and put it in a forest setting. It's really versatile! And really, you can do anything inside because it's one big room.

Style - Easy Breeze 2

Style - Easy Breeze 3

The Breeze is 70 prims [104 with the fireplace and other accessories] and has a 10x15 footprint, so it will fit smaller parcels.

You will be able to find Breeze at the Designers Remix which opens on July 1st. It's going to be awesome, y'all!

Not in my kitchen!

So now that I'm going to be SL married, I figure I better learn to cook for my new hubby. Don't tell him, but I'm not all that great in the kitchen unless I'm baking cookies! Do you think he'll notice dinner is a little...flame broiled tonight? Maybe not when he sees my new pants!

Style - Not in my kitchen!

The Secret Store is a store that I really like! The clothing is often quite classy, like these new Flared Pants, which I am wearing in Cream. Oh, I just love a good high waisted pair of pants! I do like low rise, but a nicely cut pair of high waisted pants make you look so shapely and elegant. You really MUST have these for your wardrobe. In fact, you probably need the entire new collection at The Secret Store!

Now um...does anyone have a fire extinguisher and the number to the local pizza place?

Give the lady what she wants!

I'm still having way too much fun playing with Depth of Field on the LL viewer! But that is okay, because really, the background isn't as important as my outfit, right? Right!

Style - Give the lady what she wants.

There were some goodies released this weekend! From G Field, these utterly lovely Lucy lace tops are necessities for anyone's wardrobe. You can wear them short or longer, and with or without the torso prim. So very ladylike! And the best part is that these truly will take you from summer to winter, depending on how you style them. Love!

But although we DO strive to be ladies sometimes, we don't want to be prudes, and that's where the fun, flirty, and really short Mani skirt from perennial favorite Nyte n Day comes in. I simply LOVE this skirt. It is sculpted, but so very very easy to fit with either the resizer script or by hand. I used the resizer and it worked great! Several colors are available, and trust me, I'll be going back to pick more up!

Go shop!

Ispachi Audrey Is Coming!

I'm always a little "Eeee!" when someone asks me to blog skins. I LOVE new skins, but I've always been better at blogging shoes than skins. And let's face it, many other bloggers do skin reviews way better than I do. But! I adore being asked, and I adore it more when I actually love the skin as much as I love the new Audrey skin by Ispachi!

The pictures are shot in the CalWL windlight setting only [no shadows] and have not been retouched in Photoshop. How they're shot is exactly how I see them.

Style - Ispachi - Audrey

This skin is so soft and feminine. The shading is very lovely and natural without the harsh highlights you can find on so many skins. I really kind of wanted to just run my hand over my body because the skin just looks so very baby soft.

There are 12 pretty makeups, too, ranging from soft and light to more of an edgy look.

Style - Ispachi: Audrey, Faces 2

Style - Ispachi: Audrey, Faces 1

The brows on the skin are a dark brown, but there is a tattoo layer to make them lighter, which I am wearing in my pictures. The skins come with regular and cleavage versions, plus bald and with hair. I'm wearing the Milk tone, which is the palest.

The Audrey skin comes out at Ispachi this Saturday, and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Part Of Your World

Most of my friends know that I'm totally and completely in love with shopping for home furniture and decor. Seriously. I love it more than shopping for shoes, and you guys know how I love shoes! Luckily, my wifey humors me and when I yell "I NEED A NEW HOUSE!" she obliges and builds something perfect for all my furniture. The newest house from Funky Junk, Ariel, is utterly perfect for the summer!

Style - Ariel

An awesome beach house up on stilts, the Ariel home is open and inviting, with two large rooms, a great loft, and a charming sunroom. Trust me, I have spent many evenings in the sunroom watching the sunset! I do, of course, have a million pics for you all. Remember, these are just "serving suggestions" as to what you can do with the rooms. I always urge you to put your own style in your living space!

Style - Ariel, Living Room 1

Style - Ariel, Living Room 2

Style - Ariel, Kitchen

Style - Ariel, Bedroom

Style - Ariel, Sunroom

The Ariel home comes in at 145 prims, or 161 with the added decor of a lifesaver ring, boat oars, rusted nautical star, and a lantern full of pretty shells. My house is in the Mist color, and it also comes in Kelp, a soft green.

You need it, you want it, you love it. Go to Funky Junk and buy it!

Hit The Resort

My friend Rylan has been vacationing at a resort this past week [so jealous!] and when I tried on this new dress by Acid & Mala, I could just see myself on a lovely tropical resort in it!

Style - Hit The Resort

The Wild & Chic dress is pretty awesome, especially if you enjoy animal print. I just love the ruffled collar and the gold belt! Plus it made me feel totally tall and lean. I know, that's easy to fix in SL by changing your shape, but go with me here. :-p This dress is just $75L this weekend for the Taste Of SL, so you will want to hurry on over and grab it quick!

I'm going on the hunt for a cabana boy and a drink with an umbrella in it!

JWoww Would Love It

Okay, I'll admit it. I LOVE Jersey Shore. I know, isn't that awful? But I can't seem to help it! And JWoww is probably my favorite of the Shore kids because I love that she's cute and mean all at the same time. And, as Snooki puts it, "She looks like the ultimate stripper." When I saw the new teeny tiny shorts and halters from BOOM, I knew that JWoww would run there first if she were in SL.

Style - JWoww would love it

The Feel Free shorts are extra tiny and definitely have some buttcheek going on in the back! But for a day on the beach, they're perfect! And the lovely Thrill halters are just too cute for words! They are completely sculpted, but come with a "bust shadow" layer that covers your nips up, so you don't have to worry about showing the farm if you don't rez immediately. The tops are mod, but there are several sizes in the pack so you can get a good fit.

And can we talk about my hair for a moment? The new June style from Truth is JUST my kind of hair. Long, straight, and with a thick fringe of bangs. Total love! There are actually two styles - the bangs I'm wearing here, and then a long sideswept style. Both are gorgeous, but would you expect anything less?

I have to go. I just feel like eating ham and drinking water. Ham.

Banana Beauty

Do you ever see a color and it just sparks a visual for you that no matter what you do, you can't get it out of your head? The new Gloria wedges from Nardcotix in yellow made me think of bananas! I'm craving bananas [or a banana daiquiri] really badly!

Style - Banana Beauty

[Please don't look at the line on the wall. I took the photo too big and that always gives me a big line on the picture. It's NOT the texture of the wall at all!!]

Look at how cute these shoes are! From the side they do look chunky, but if you see them from the back, the wedge is fairly slim. And hey, any shoe that is cute and I don't have to try to tint to my skin is A-OK in my book! The Gloria wedges come in a bunch of colors, so go pick them up!

I knew immediately that the Blowey dress from The Sea Hole was going to be the one that I wore with these shoes, and as a happy coincidence, this color - Zebra Goldenrod - happens to be on sale for $50L! Score one for ME! This dress is completely sculpted, and comes with an alpha to hide your butt [God, I wish I had a butt alpha in RL!], but if you're worried about showing the goodies while you rez somewhere, it's high enough that you can put your favorite strapless bikini or bra top on underneath. It comes with a matching hair flower.

Mmmm...banana daiquiris....

Never underestimate the power of legs

So my wife made me a new house! And naturally that means I'm a decorating fool right now since I will be blogging it once it's decorated, but I had to stop for a bit and show you guys my outfit! Never underestimate the power of a short dress and a great pair of heels!

Style - Never underestimate the power of legs

From Hucci comes this absolutely hot Summer Babydoll dress, which I'm of COURSE wearing in pink! The skirts come in either plain or with stripes. I bet this would look good with some jeans or capris underneath as well, if you're not into showing that much leg. Really lovely!

And oh my gosh, did you guys SEE the new Lulu heels from SLink? I love love love strappy sandals, and these heels are totally summer fierce. The heel is a sharp stiletto so if that new summer love gets in your way, you can cut them with your vicious, vicious words, and then stab them with your shoe. Or not. But you need the shoes, trust me!

I need to finish decorating, and you need to go shopping!

Summer Dreams

Happy June 1st, readers! I've been happily terraforming and getting my land ready for summer, but of course one MUST still be fashionable while making sand dunes and islands, am I right?

Style - Summer Dreams

G Field, which we all know is probably in my top 5 favorite stores list, came out with these totally adorable Puff Sleeve Tops recently and this is definitely a summer staple for me this year! Tiny, but still modest, with sweet lace detailing [there is also a top without the lace included], small puffed sleeves, and a great criss-cross [jump! jump!] back. You need it, you want it, you must have it.

I paired it up with the awesome new I "less than 3" My Jeans from Acid & Mala and the Fae Wedges in Pink & White Plaid [which looks more lavender to me] that were a very generous group gift from Pixel Mode. I can't do the actual less than 3 without my blog thinking I'm doing HTML! Oh, and the jeans are unisex, by the way, and come in both low rise and regular rise.

You pretty much want all of this stuff. You really do. :)
