Front Row: Vanitas Vesture

Here is another treat from the Glance Front Row event coming up tomorrow, April 1st. This lovely little dress is from Vanitas Vesture.

Style - Front Row - Vanitas Vesture

This ladylike dress is called Obsessive, and I have been obsessed with strutting around my house in it! The style is simple, but the print is what really brings out the beauty in the lines.

The Front Row event takes us on a fashion tour of 50 of Second Life's best designers. 100% of the proceeds of all of the Front Row items go to Relay For Life. Pretty stuff and a good cause? Heck yes!

Hello dolly!

Yep, I'm a Jane fangirl. I can't seem to help myself. Everytime I am trying to get dressed, that's immediately the folder I run to. And when Janie releases something new... well, it's like being sprinkled with happy dust.

The new Babushka Dolls top is probably my favorite of her new releases this week. So cute!

Style - Hello dolly!

Look at how sweet this top is!! You can only really see 3 of the dollies in the picture, but there are five around the shirt. So freakin' cute!

There have been TONS of new goodies at Jane in the last couple of weeks, so really, if you haven't been by, you're missing out! Go now!

Pose Fair!!

Guess what's coming up this Friday? POSE FAIR!!! If you do a lot of photos, this is like a slice of heaven! Bunches of the grid's best posemakers coming together in one place? Hell yeah! I grabbed my man last night [hi honey!] and we played on some of the poses that I've been allowed to see early.

From !Bang comes this cute couples pose called Comfort Counts. It will be a dollarbie at the Pose Fair!

Style - Pose Fair, !Bang

aDORKable Poses is a place that I love for awesome pose props, and this one - Play In My Box - is certainly awesome! It has 5 unisex poses and I love it! Oh, and Aldwyn is NOT naked in this picture! Or IS he? :-p

Style - Pose Fair, aDorkable Poses

And from Hopscotch, this pose - Say It - is sensual and sexy. I helped name it, so I double love it!

Front Row: Nemesis

I was very honored to be chosen as one of the bloggers for the Glance International Front Row event. Fifty of the grid's best designers are taking part in this "fashion tour" and for the month of April, you'll be able to stop by their mainstores and pick up some new designs with 100% of the proceeds going towards Relay For Life. Over the next month, I'll be showing you some of the best from the event. Let's get started with this wonderful outfit from Nemesis!

Style - Glance Front Row: Nemesis

The red Bustier is a simply lovely top that you can dress up or down in many ways. I layered it over a t-shirt with some jeans and it looked fab! And the Summer Skirt in black and red is just adorable! I love the big big buttons that go down the front.

Front Row starts on April 1st at 12pm SLT and I'll tell you all - get ready for some amazing shopping!

Did I mention how in love I am with this month's Spruce Up Your Space theme? So BoHo just appeals to me! This weekend, Belle Belle presents us with La Roulotte, a charming little gypsy wagon!

Style - La Roulotte

Style - La Roulotte, inside

Style - La Roulotte, 2nd view

435 prims of adorable, I am simply in love with this little wagon! Makes me want to go bare foot and dance around outside while shaking a tambourine. The inside is deliciously detailed with chairs and knick knacks and even a crystal ball!

You can pick up La Roulotte this weekend at Belle Belle for Spruce Up Your Space for the low low price of $150L. It's a steal!!

Spring Holiday

Ms. Janie Marlowe has made with the goodies again this week and oh, what a week it is at Jane! I absolutely fell in love with this darling little Patchwork Dress!

Style - Spring Holiday

This strapless sundress is just precious! I love the texture. The subtle print of flowers and butterflies makes this perfect for spring. Oh Janie, how you appeal to my girly girl side!

Do you like my petals? They come from aDORKable Poses' Petals In The Wind set for Chic Limited this month. The set contains 4 petals props with poses and each one is sooo cute and so awesome for pictures! There are actually 8 petals props because you get to choose between the pink and white petals, or the grayscale petals that you can tint. Guess which one I chose? :)

I don't know about you guys, but I really think it's time to go shopping!

BoHo, baby!

This month's Spruce Up Your Space theme is So BoHo! I got utterly giddy when I heard the theme because that's a style I like a whole lot! And I got even more excited when I found out Funky Junk was going to be in it. Look at this CUTE little house Ulaa made for the event!

Style - Boho, baby!

Isn't it just adorable? Well, if you think this is good - let's take a look inside!!

The living room is large and spacious with a fun wallpaper! Lots of room to pack in your favorite stuff. The fireplace facade with the art and stuff on top is also included in your BoHo Cottage, but is of course removable if you need to save on prims. If you look at the two Fondant Poufs in the middle of the room, those are from LISP Bazaar, on sale for SUYS this weekend as well.

Style - Boho, baby! - Living room

I set up this room as a kitchen/dining area. The large windows have a really cool soft colored texture that tie in with the wallpapers in the house, and with the stained glass in the house.

Style - Boho, baby! - Kitchen

And of course, what's a house without a bedroom? I wasn't quite sure about this wallpaper when I first saw it, but I gotta say, it totally grew on me. It's just so different and so ... boho! The Mia Palette Bed that I'm laying on is from Mudhoney and is also for SUYS this weekend. It's so sweet, and fits into this house SO well.

Style - Boho, baby! - Bedroom

The Funky Junk BoHo Cottage comes with 2 sets of texture change drapes, 3 pieces of wall art, the fireplace mantle, and a scripted porch light. It is 99 prims rezzed by itself, 172 with all the extra goodies. Everything is copy/mod, no transfer.

Spruce Up Your Space for this weekend is only a few more hours, but I'm pretty sure you'll be able to pick up these items at regular price after the weekend is over if you miss it. At any price, it's something you've got to have!

Some of the stores I used while decorating this house:

LISP Bazaar
Little Boxes
Belle Belle
Second Spaces

The Orient Express

Do you like to travel? I do, but I've never been on a train before. At least, not a beautiful, luxurious train.

Style - The Orient Express

From Belle Belle's line of Bliss Boxes comes The Orient Express! Oh, it is a marvel! 799 prims of wonderful, this train is exactly how you would expect a beautiful, old fashioned, 1920s train to look. You'd be riding in style in this!

Style - The Orient Express, Inside

Of course, there are PLENTY of animations inside. No, let me say that again. PLENTY OF ANIMATIONS. Like....


Style - The Orient Express, Dinner time!

And smooching!

Style - The Orient Express, Smooch!

And...well... you know. Believe me, lots of those! *wink wink nudge nudge*

Style - The Orient Express, Privacy please!

There are also poses in the passageway as well, and in the cute little bathroom, which I didn't get a photo of.

The Orient Express is 799 prims, copy, no mod and no transfer. It comes with the Bliss Box Cloud so that you can ride the cloud up into the sky to rez, then touch the telephone in the car to call the cloud down when you're ready to leave the train. It's really a marvelous system!

But, you don't need me talking about it. Go to Belle Belle and get your own! Now excuse us...we need a nap!

Style - The Orient Express, Sleeping

Royally Sweet

I am so excited! One of my friends, QueenKellee Kuu, is back in SL and has reopened her store - Royally! Kellee is pretty awesome, and she's reopened with items for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser. I HAD to go buy this outfit because not only is it darling, it's named after me!!

Style - Royally Sweet

This is the Alicia ballet outfit, and it is simply too cute for words! The outfit comes with 3 different style skirts, and they are able to change colors. Love love love!

The Only Exception

My love of my SLife says I don't do enough lingerie posts. I'm not the lingerie type, but for him I'll make an exception. Truthfully, I don't have a lot of lingerie. I don't feel like I can pull off the look very well. Let's face it, I'm not the "sexy" type! But the new Dotty bra and panty set from Reasonable Desires lets my cute side stay, with just a touch of sex appeal!

Style - The Only Exception

Adorable, right?? I really like it because it COVERS things. That's my biggest issue with most lingerie in SL. If I wanted to be naked, I'd just be naked. Check out the back of the panties. Sheer, but with a lot of coverage. Love!

Style - The Only Exception, back

Seriously love this set!

And check out my amazing shoes! They're the Edith shoes from Nardcotix, which I'm wearing in silver.

Style - The Only Exception, shoes

I have been complaining about not having great strappy heels for a while now, but these are so very perfect! I was able to match my skin really super easily as well with the HUD, and honey, let me tell you - that right there makes these worth their weight in gold for me.

I suppose I should put some clothes on now...

Afternoon Delight

Guess what starts this weekend? Fashion For Life! You may remember this as being the RFL Clothing Fair in the past, but it's a bit different this year, and you can read about it on their website. But it is still a charity event for the American Cancer Society. :) I'm not one of the official bloggers, but Sachi Vixen of Adam n Eve was kind enough to allow me to give you all a sneak peek!

Style - Afternoon Delight

I've been seeing a lot of high waisted pants in SL lately, and I LOVE it. Check out the Jenica pants! High waisted with buttons, these pants give you some rockin' curves! Seriously, I stood and stared at my butt for a long time. And don't my legs look just a mile long?? I paired it up with the Cataloon shirt, which gave the whole look almost a retro vibe to me, but still fresh and feminine. I love the ruffles on this shirt, it's just precious!

Fashion For Life starts on Saturday, March 12th, and you will be sad if you don't pick these items up from Adam n Eve! Not to mention there are so so so many designers participating!! Get ready to shop!

Happy Mardi Gras!

Well isn't this embarrassing? I was partying on Bourbon Street and then found myself in the swamps of Louisiana. At least I look cute, right?

Style - Happy Mardi Gras!

Eboni Khan of Hucci just released these new Carrie tanks, and I could not be more in love with them! The sculpted prim flows out just perfectly, and it's low cut to show a lot of sexy cleavage. The tanks come in all kinds of prints and colors, and believe me, these will definitely be going in my summer staples rotation!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to find my way out of this swamp. That boar doesn't look like he has any beads to throw to me.

Ebony & Ivory

I really love the classic simplicity of black and white. You can combine them to look completely elegant, or very casual, but it's always a very clean combination that really works.

Style - Ebony & Ivory

New from Jane today comes this very pretty Francie - So Innocent blouse. It's just adorable! It has fun puffy sleeves and a little lace detail on the front. It also has 2 different long sculpts that you can wear if you're not tucking it under something. But I simply had to wear it under the Francie Shorts! These are high waisted to give you awesome curves, and you can wear them with or without suspenders. You'll also find other Francie tops and bottoms at Jane today. All of them are just wonderful!

And new from Elikatira today is this really pretty and casual hair called Just. Just is right, because when I saw it, I just had to have it! There is also another new hair out as well, and a new one exclusive to The Dressing Room Blue.

Time to do more shopping!

I'm on a drug. It's called Pure Juice!

Do you think Charlie Sheen would ever pick me to be one of his Goddesses? Maybe if I were wearing this dress, he would!

Style - I'm on a drug. It's called Pure Juice!

One last Pure Juice preview for you guys before it opens tomorrow! Aren't you excited?? This is the Pure Dress from Nemesis and I adore it. Really, when I saw it, I yelled "Oh, that's mine!" The funny thing is that it's not my typical style, but I suppose that's what I love about it. It comes with the stockings, and in two other colors. I'm wearing it in Honeysuckle. If you look closely, you can see my huge hooped Precieuse earrings by Je Suis, also for Pure Juice. I love them!

Oh, and no, I'm not switching to dark hair. I just thought it went best with this utterly lovely Melissa skin from Belleza. [Not at the event, btw.] This skin is so pretty, but it doesn't come with blonde brows [frownyface!!!!], so when I want to wear it, I have to switch to dark hair. I think it's gorgeous though, don't you?

Don't forget - Pure Juice opens tomorrow!!!

I like my juice sweet!

I wasn't going to do another Pure Juice post today, but I am overdosing on Juice!

Style - I like my juice sweet!

From Cool Beans comes the very aptly named Sweet Vision dress! It's just so sweet, and the matching Plain Jane pumps that come with it are anything but plain to me! So so sweet, so so adorable, and so so right for spring.

Remember, Pure Juice starts on March 5th!! Oh, don't worry. I'll keep reminding you.

I'm wearing the Chloe dress from Elate! in Ivory & Onyx, and paired it up with the Draneun earrings and necklace from LiNe. Love love love!

I don't usually do 2 pics in one post, but you have to see the back of the dress. I simply adore dresses and shirts with low low backs and this one is perfect.

Style - Another Sip of Juice, back view

I'm also using poses from HelaMiyo, which you'll be able to also find at the event. Pure Juice opens on March 5th, so save those $Lindens. You're gonna need them!

Ooh, that's good juice!

If you hadn't heard, the Pure Juice event starts on March 5th. Oh, let me tell you guys - it's going to be amazing. All kinds of goodies [mostly in shades of pink!] from all kinds of wonderful creators.

It's not just clothing you'll get at Pure Juice! You'll be able to pick up things like this wonderful Primrose Weathered Greenhouse by Funky Junk!

Style - Pure Juice: Funky Junk

How adorable is this?! It has an 11x16 footprint, which is totally big enough to live in if you so wish to do that. It's also 122 prims, and comes with the hanging ivy around the front. My picture? Totally doesn't do it justice. You'll have to pick it up for yourself - but not until the 5th when Pure Juice opens!

Am I being mean by giving you a sneak peek? Probably. But you'll love me for it later, I promise.
