Liv-Glam - McQueen Stud Dress - Me - Model 6 - Front_001

Liv -Glam is known for having some of the greatest sales in SL. She is very good at stripping me of a ton of money every single week! I however score a ton of great clothing so it’s a good deal. Miss Jones, the avatar behind Liv-Glam also does fantastic high fashion photos   of all her outfits, but I just wanted to show you that no matter what your style, you can find something at Liv-Glam.

This new release called McQueen Stud Dress reminded me of the old slip dresses updated with spikes for an edgy modern look. This completely reminds me of the slip Elizabeth Taylor wore in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. Just pair this dress with a pale skin with deep red lips and you get a great vintage glam Hollywood look. Just taken to 2013. This style is my happy place, it’s more me then anything else is in SL.

This dress comes with 24 different colour versions, most with silver studs, some with this copper studs. Lots of different colours to play with, something is sure to please, actually more then one version is sure to please. It was hard picking ust one colour to show. This dress being a new release is 375L.

Liv-Glam - Rhawnie - Still LIve - Spaces - Breathing Out And In - Front_001

If you want to get in touch with your wicked half, I would suggest getting one of Liv-Glams Monday sale items called Rhawnie 2. It shows as being Cheetah and Blue Jean material on the sales ad, but it looked Cheetah and Black in my lighting, and it just said Dark Priestess…Gothy to me with the head scarf.

With the right skin and eyes, this outfit goes from fashionable to eerie. I’m sure the more punky gothy types among you are already thinking of the tattoos and piercings you can add to this to make it even more dark looking.  Go for it! Let your imagination wander on this beginners canvas.

You can pick it up all this week for just 99L and see what you can make with it.

Liv-Glam - Candace Dress - LAP - Curves - Baby Got Back - Side_001

Bold, Bright and Colourful. A lot of today’s fashion icons revel in colour, never fading into the background, always making a splash everywhere they go. If you like to dress as bright as your personality, Liv-Glam has a this great dress called Candace, it comes with 6 bright colour versions of this pattern on the hud. This dress also has great curves to it. With Candace, Baby has got back, hips and a great narrow waist.

Candace is in this weeks 55L Thursday sales so it’s only 55L. 55L for 6 dresses, you can’t beat that.

Photo 1 – McQueen Stud Dress

Skin – This skin is from Gala Phoenix, it’s from her Jewel Set in the Gold Tones. It’s Black Diamond Make Up Version 2 in Honey (Pale).  It’s nice to see Gala Phoenix back, and her work up again in SL in the Curio sim. This skin 1.500 for one makeup duo pack alone or you can get 6 make up duo packs for 2,000 lindens. Pretty much a no brainer which you should get. All fatpacks should be priced like this. Then watch my inventory really explode.

Hair – This is hair 134 from Love Soul in Jet Black. I found it had a little hole in the back but putting a black hair base under it hid it well enough to make it buyable and enjoyable to wear. It and hair 135 are their new releases right now and are on 50% off as of publishing. This means they are 90L per single hair colour.

Nails – The nails I am wearing are from Izzie’s Metallic Nails. You get a rainbow of 40 metallic shades for just 199L. You also get the best selection of skin matching gloves around. She has 13 in her collections including a white which for some reason is much easier to get a clean match from, then other gloves I’ve edited. I know, it makes no sense, it shouldn’t work that way, but it does for me. I don’t explain SL, I just play it. It’s gotten so that her gloves are the only gloves I use, I have hers in a file called gloves in my prim nail file, and when I make a glove for a skin I label it with the skin name and keep it in that file. I just throw everyone elses gloves away, unless it’s a skin designer who has matched the glove to their skin. I hope everyone who wears prim nails starts bugging designers to do this.

Eyes – From Mayfly, these are the Liquid Light Mesh Eyes in Pale Paris Shadow. With Mayfly you get 4 sets of eyes with varying shades of the whites for 99L. You can also get the same package but in the old school SL eyes, for the same price, the choice is up to you.

Photo 2 – Rhawnie 2

Hair – I used the Boon Gathered Mid Hairbase in Black. This hairbase is sold at Boon and is made to be worn with a set variety of hair styles, and it looks like hair pulled back in a pony tail. It works well as a stand alone hair piece under scarves like this. It costs 100L for 15 colours. Check out the hairs that are made for this hair base, you might like them.

Skin – Glam Affair – Gio – Black Snow. I’m not sure where I got this, but it doesn’t seem to be on sale anymore in the store. It was probably an event somewhere. Have a peek in your inventory, you might have it.  The Gio skin line is still alive and well at Glam Affair though so have a peek at the other great make ups.

Nails – I am wearing a cheetah print nail to match the print in the top. I’m never one to pass up a sale, and this is a great sale. I got this nails from Fab.Pony. All their prim nails are 30L a set, and include nails for sizes 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 hands. The Gold Cheetah set included 3 different versions of the nails, a straight cheetah  print, a french version with a black tip, and a version with a black half moon at the base of the nails. That’s a lot of prim nail goodness for 30L. These are some fun and pretty nails, if you like prim nails or just have wanted to see what the fuss is about, I would suggest going there and dropping  just a few lindens and trying some of these nails out. This is a bargain that can’t be beat.

Eyes – I used Mayfly eyes again and everything I said above still applies. This time the colour was Deep Sky Mesh Eyes in Dusky Cherise.

Photo 3 – Candace

Skin – This is a Heartsick skin from what is now Aeva. It was in the Devotion skin line, Eternity skin tone, and the make up is called Lime Twist. It doesn’t appear to be sold at the shop anymore but you can search your inventory to see if you have it already. The Devotion skin line in natural make up is still sold…500L for all skin tones included. There is a tattoo line called Neon in the shop, which looks a lot like the shadow used here, so you may be able to recreate the look, since the lips are close to the natural Aeva/Heartsick lips, just put a lipgloss tattoo on and you’ll be set.

Hair – I wore Amacci’s Sphinx hair in Ebony. This hair has a streak option that comes on a hud, I just picked the lime streak. It’s a fun play on an updo.  I paired it with a hair base from Amacci’s second set of hair bases. Both sets are free. The first set has a clean brushed back look, the second set has small tendrils of hair falling around your face. It’s nice to have options. I got the black pack for 250L. There are a lot of other single tone packs for the same price or you can get a fatpack of everything for 900L.

Nails – These nails are from Fab.Pony too, like above, and are called Gradients – Square Tip – Lime.  It’s a fun little design and comes in all the sizes mentioned above for the same price. 30 L.

Eyes – These eyes are from Aphotic Gloom, and is the shade Apple from their Claris Collection.  You get both the old SL eyes, both large and small,  and prim eyes for just 99L a colour. Or you can pick up the 4 pack of green shades for 199L. If you are going to get two, you might as well get them all!

Jewelry – The necklace and earring I’m wearing is from Luzuri, who is the new big name in jewelry for gowns. She also has some fun designs you can wear with dresses and this set called Tres Chic is one of them. You can buy this set in set stone versions for 400L for the necklace, earrings, bracelet and 2 rings, these sets are all metal change which is oh so nice.  The real fun however comes when you get the full colour change set which is 1,300 L or you can buy just the pieces you want, if your not a bracelet and ring girl you can be like me and just get the necklace and earrings. The necklace was 650L and the Earrings were 350. Now I have access to 9 gem stones to mix and match in the set or just to wear all one shade along with the 4 metal colours.  In the set above I wore mostly the yellow stone and a bit of the green stone thrown in. There are so many possible and beautiful combinations, you’ll be playing with it for months.

Blacklace - Boo Red Velvet Corset - Meghan T3 Scarlet

I got a new fatpack of Adam n Eve’s new skin Meghan, and I thought about how I could show it off, and I thought about the new releases from Blacklace this week and thought they might be a match made in heaven. Luckily yes they were! Meghan comes in four skin tones, T1 toT4, the one I’m wearing  is the T3 tone, one tone up from the darkest. You can buy a single skin for 949 or a fatpack for 6 make ups for 2,900L  which is around half price.

I paired the Scarlet make up with Blacklace’s Boo- Red Velvet Corset with Bordello Skirt. Every part of this outfit is perfect, starting with the huge number of pieces you get. Every Blacklace lingerie set comes with more parts then you ever dreamed you could possibly have lingerie in. This ensure that it’s incredibly wearable, no matter what kind of tattoo, what clothing layer you have to wear for something else, you can fit a Blacklace outfit around it. If you want to combine multiple items on one layer, like garter and corset together…you can…if you want to do without the garter and stocking…you can. The huge number of layers means the ultimate in control.

The Boo corset set comes in 6 different colours, all no copy, transferable for easy gifting. Other then the above red it comes in teal, purple, blue, green and black. Each set is 398L each.  Blacklace is now making Lola’s Tango appliers for their new and released items, that is why Boo is being featured this week. The applier is available to purchase for each of these separately for 99L.

Blacklace - Boo Red Velvet Corset - Meghan T3 Scarlet_003E

To pair with this luscious red corset I chose the Scarlet Meghan make up with it’s lush red lips. The skin defaults with a dark eyebrow, but I am wearing a one of the included tattoos to change the eyebrows to blonde. The other option is red brows of course. There are 4 hair base tattoos as well, I’m wearing the pale blonde.

I’m wearing mesh eyes from Mayfly, their Deep Sky Mesh Eyes in Hazel Shadow. I love the colour of these eyes, brown and green in swirling flecks.   These are eyes you could wear for a year and never get tired of looking at them. These eyes come with 4 different versions of whites like I discussed in my last blog post, and I’m wearing the whites version to go with the pale skin.

The jewelry I’m wearing is from Lazuri, one of my new favourite jewelry stores. This is her newest jewelry set, En Tourent, just a couple of pieces, and just showing a bit of it. This set is beautiful and customizable to the max. The pieces can be made fancy or plainer with a click of a button on the hud that pops up when you touch it and chosing the big or small version of the item. Then you can choose the colour of the metal and the stones. I’m going to cover this jewelry set in another blog post. Head into the shop to look at it soon, as it’s on sale right now for 50% off as a release special, I don’t know how long that sale will last.

Blacklace Tender Caress - Blue Sheer_003e

This beautiful blue lace cincher set by Blacklace is called Tender Caress.  It comes in 8 lovelyshades for 398L each. Aside from the blue I’m wearing there is red, black, white, green, purple, fushia and teal. There are Tango appliers for this outfit as well, available for sale separately at 99L each.  I love this lingerie set, Blacklace does really great lace work, and their lingerie really looks like something you would get off the shelves at a store in real life. Which a lot more then you can say  about most of SL lingerie.

I chose to wear the baby blue make up option for the Adam n Eve Meghan skin with this outfit.  As with the above outfit I wore the breast enhancer tattoo that is included with all Meghan skin packs. If you prefer to have a very small breast sizer, then Adam n Eve has you covered. There is a breast dehancer tattoo included in all skin packs to minimize the appearance of breasts.

The eyes I’m wearing in this photo are also from Mayfly, their Deep Sky Mesh Eyes in Hazy Rainshower, a beautiful light blue.

Blacklace Tender Caress - Blue Sheer_004E

I’m showing this back photo of the Tender Caress outfit for two reasons, one is to show you that the detailing of the Blacklace lingerie doesn’t end at the front but the back is fantastic too, The other is to show you have great the fanny is on Adam n Eve skins. I’ve often heard it said that Sachi Vixen, the genius behind Adam n Eve skins, draws and shades the bests bums in SL, and well from this picture you can’t say they are wrong.

The hair I’m using in all these photos is by [elikatira], her Found in Blonde 7. I love her styles, I love that she sells a variety pack, she was one of the first stores to do so. The only thing I don’t like is that she doesn’t have hair bases, which means I’m struggling to find another store that does with a hair base close to her colour is I want to wear something like this design which has no bangs. It just doesn’t look right to have hair growing out of your head with no hairbase anymore.

Blacklace Tender Caress - Blue Sheer_009E

This bra and panty set from Blacklace is called Kirsty, and it come in 6 enchanting colours for just 298L each. Aside from the white above there is pink, purple, blue, teal and red.  The Tango appliers are 99l each and are purchased separately. One little note about this outfit. It is a little more see through on the bra then it appears in the photo. In order to make the photos “legal” for my feeds I wore a tintable nipple pastie, that covered up my nipple and was colourable to skin colour. I actually bought the one from Blacklace Beauty, and it was only 50L. I just want everyone who is going to buy this to know that your nipples will be visible when you wear this, if you don’t do the option I did. Of course if you are in a situation where you are wearing lingerie, it’s probably not going to matter. *nudge nudge..wink wink*

One of the things I like best about this outfit is it shows off the torso on the Adam n Eve skin. Meghan has great shading, in everything from the clavicals to the lines of the tummy. It even has a totally cute belly button. Another thing about Adam n Eve that I love is that they include a nail cover glove to match your skin, so you can wear prim nails without having to fiddle with tinting gloves. This is a bonus in a skin package that really adds value to me. Saves me time colour matching gloves and nothing ever matches as well as gloves with the actual skin texture on them. Thanks Sachi!

For Nails I wore a pair from my new nail addiction, Bamboo Nails – one of their Pastoral French release..the green nails to match the green eyeshadow. In the photos above I wore the Bamboo Dark Side nail set, the blue nails from it. Check out this blog post for more details on what makes Bamboo Nails so great.

Blacklace Tender Caress - Blue Sheer_005E

Last but not least, a close up of my face, so you can see how beautifully Meghan is detailed. This is the Garden make up set. With all this glowy  skin and soft colours, you definately look like you could have been plucked from an English Spring Garden. It’s a wonderful show of taste. Nothing is overdone, nothing is underdone. It’s all just right.

To top it all off, the icing on the cake as it were, I matched this skin up with the Mayfly Deep Sky Teal Hazel Eyes. The perfect touch for a perfect skin.

Photography Credits – This post was made with a pose prop called BehaviourBody Poset Prop.
