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.

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.

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.

Last Friday, I found a “new to me” shop, Vershe, but I know she isn’t new to a lot of people, because no one new is this good! I got a message in one of my groups about her group  Freebie Friday, it showed a GORGEOUS pair of shoes she was hiding for her group in the store for free.  So I figured her group would have some horrid joining price. Nope…it was free.    Then I figured the shoes would be stupidly hard to find. Nope, I found them in like 10 minutes, and for me that’s pretty good, I’m not a treasure hunter. So I figured she must have very high prices on her normal stuff to make up for giving away great items. Nope..her prices are great! I’m wearing Vershe from top to shoe for less then 600L, no freebies or sale items involved. You know you have won when you find a shop with great prices and great quality, with an Owner with a generous nature.

The top I’m wearing is Vershe’s Belly Flasher in Cheetah. This top sells for an incredibly reasonable 70L each or a fatpack of 5 for 199L. I don’t normally buy fatpacks of clothing because I always figure that your going to wear your favourite colour and the rest are going to be ignored anyway, but they were all so nice, and the price was so right, I got them all.

I did however thwart the name, not flashing my belly at all by wearing the Vershe’s Jeanies, a nice high waisted jean. These jeans come in 5 pretty colours, for 200L each or a fatpack for 899L. That wasn’t cheap enough to tempt me into getting them all so I just got the shade version, a nice dark gray that will go with everything.  These are nice jeans though and I am a sucker for high waisted pants so I won’t be surprised if I go back for seconds.

What I really love are these heels, Vershe Stacka’s! I love them so much I bought the fat pack. It’s not a huge fatpack, it’s only the four shoes above, but I had to have them all.  Now she needs to design something to go with the zebra shoe. The shoes are prim feet, and sell for a very very very reasonable price of 299L each or 999L for the fatpack. The one big advantage of the fatpack is that it’s one shoe with the texture change options on the hud. I love anything like this that lets me have less things in inventory. One thing that I didn’t show was that the shoes also have 4 different coloured heel options, a black, a white, a lighter brown and this the darkest brown. They all look good, I should have shown more then one, but it was late at night when I photographed all this and I just forgot the heel options were there.

Clothing doesn’t look great without great accessories, so now is time to talk about what I wore with the clothes.

One of the best nail makers in SL is [Virtual/Insanity]. This weekend for the last La Venta Eventa they put all their prim nails on 50% off. This was a great chance to pick up a lot of great nails at a great price and boy did I take advantage of it.  These nails are their Bengal pack, which might make you think they are tiger stripes since Bengal is a species of Tiger, but they are cheetah/leopard spots, with 8 fantastic colours including this natural I’m wearing in the photo. They come with gloves you can colour if they don’t match your skin but the fit is so good, that I find you can go without most of the time.  You can see a little of my skin’s nails in this shot but in every day SL with my hands moving, that would be incredibly difficult to spot. Each pack comes with 3 different hand sizes and the 8 different nail colours offered in each pack are chosen by clicking on the nails which brings up a hud.  So if you only have one shape or if all your shapes have the same hand size you can toss out the unneeded hand sizes and just keep the gloves and two prim pieces in your inventory per set.

The sale is suppose to have been over at the end of the weekend but it’s still on monday morning at the time of writing this blog, so hurry in while the great sale prices last, but even at regular prices of 150L a pack, these nails are well worth purchasing.

The hair I’m wearing is from Love Soul, and I love it. It’s simple, it’s elegant, it’s flattering…what is not to love. I find Love Soul’s hair a bit pricey, as you only get one hair colour for 170L, which is only 80L less then what I’m paying for 5 or more hair colours of a style in most hair stores.  So I really have to love it to buy it. Fortunately or unfortunately, however you want to look at it, they make hairs that are sometimes worth the price.  In this case I thought it was. This is style number 71 in..you guessed it…Black.

My skin…It’s no secret that I’m a skin fanatic. Yes..I’ll leave the W word alone for now. I found this  skin at the latest edition of Structure Your Skin project. It’s by Mystic Canvas, and I adore it. I love it, I have a girl crush on it. I would have it’s babies if I could. I won’t say I’ll never take it off, because well, my love for skins is fickle and I know I’ll be attracted to the next shiny that comes along, but for now, this one has all my love.  For a mere 85L you can pick up this beautifully crafted skin with 3 different levels of gloss on the lips from matt to super glossy. This is the medium glossy, I bet you  would just love to see the super glossy! You also get all 3 with a cleavage option, which I’m not wearing in these photos. Get your fanny down  to Structure Your Skin and see how good Mystic Canvas can make you look. I know it won’t be the last skin I get from them.

My eyes are the prim version of the Candybox eyes from Aphotic Gloom‘s latest Aquilius Collection, the Coeur collection  which came out for Valentines Day, Coeur meaning Heart in French.  This collection has 4 eye colours in it, each as pretty as the last, each colour comes with regular eyes in large and normal, and a set a prim eyes. The box also contrains a set of white eyes to wear behind the prim eyes. His prim eyes are the easiest ones I’ve found to fit. They are just a slim film that go over the white eyes, and they are sizable so you can make them as large or small as you wish.

Photography Information –

These pictures were taken using the PNP Photo Studio version 3.0..which is probably the best 1500L I ever spent in SL. It’s made taking photos so much easier! It’s out and available for a try at Poses N Props

The photos today are taken on the background from the Missing Mile texture pack, background 15. This pack was on sale this weekend for 60L, along with 5 other packs. One of the great things about this studio is that the designers put out hundreds of backgrounds, 10 in a pack for only 100L. If you don’t need a specific back ground right away and are just looking to increase your collection, they have 6 sets on sale every weekend for 60L each, as well as 6 pose sets, although those are usually 2 person poses which aren’t good for me.

These are suspose to be off sale now but are still on sale as of writing this Sunday morning

Poses –

Photo 2 – Valerie 7 – The Valerie Poses were on 60L weekend sale this weekend from PNP…*happy dance*

Photo 3 – Jewelry 3  – This is a new runway pose from PNP …party of their new jewelry collection, it glides gracefully til it’s in this position..lovely pose.

Photo 4 – Jewelry 5 – This is also a runway jewelry pose, which moves elegantly until finishing with fingers by face to show your jewelry. I wish I could show it in motion.

These runway poses are 100L or the 6 pack for 500L, which are reasonable prices for runway poses. PNP have a lot of runway poses if you are looking for them, I know they can  be hard to find, but some can make great editions to AO’s as well as looking amazing on runways.
