Gizza has released a gorgeous lace dress perfect for summer days. I am wearing without the higher waisted full skirt flexis and the rose at the waist, opting for a more casual look using the mesh skirt and flexi leg prime. I like this closer fitting, dropped waist, simpler, sleeker and chic.
The lovely braided hair is from Iren. I picked it up at Hair Fair last month.
I definitely recommend you click the slideshow and view it full-size on Flickr. I really wanted you to see all sides of the short cuts, especially the ones from MADesigns with the intricate fade cuts on the tattoo layer. MADesigns tattoo layers are modifiable. You receive a single one that you color to match your hair. All of these cuts are at Hair Fair and a portion of every hair sold goes to Wigs for Kids. I have included several men’s styles that seem to work well for women as well.

Today is the last day of Culture Shock. I popped by last night to do some last minute shopping and there were only about 6 to 10 other people, making it a delightfully lag-free shopping experience. If you have been deterred by lagophobia lo these many days, now is your chance to find delightful dresses like this one from Spright and fun fashions and shop until you drop knowing that your lindens are saving lives for people whose time literally is running out without the fabulous work of Médecins Sans Frontières MSF (Doctors Without Borders).
So, I hope you have headed over to the Wear Gray Market to check out the goodies. There’s tons of items in the stores, plus gachas and even a hunt. The fashion goodness rains down like a spring downpour over there. Go get wet! You can stay nice and cozy warm in this Comfy Top from IReN.
How do you explore Second Life®? Do you use the Destination Guide? Perhaps you follow some of the travel blogs such as Hybrid Ansar’s Avatars in Motion or Ysé SLiffeuse et Gloodeuse, a French blog that is mostly pictures so anyone can enjoy it and find places to go. Maybe you go to Flickr and follow groups such as the SL Tourist Board. I do all of the above, but then sometimes I just open up the map, click on a spot and go there. Sometimes that is embarrassing, but sometimes it’s serendipity. That’s how I found this lovely harbor at Permutate.
My friend Faery Sola who makes the best damn pants in Second Life opened her own sim named MoonSong this weekend with two stores, her Studio Sidhe (pronouced She if you’re wondering) and FlipSide. I went to the grand opening party which was a lot of fun and want to congratulate her on her beautiful sim. Now, her sim is next to another gorgeous sim, Oubliette, and between those two sims there is this lovely bridge and that’s where I happened to shoot my pictures for this outfit which is a mashup for Muism and Sn@tch. Please do explore these beautiful sims – where some of my favorite SL residents and designers can be found.
So I looking for Untone Quilt at an old SLurl, I happened on Maple where real life creations are brought into second life – and the photo of the original is shown so you can see how well the design has been translated. Honestly? I think I like the Second Life versions best. Here are three lively and fun print blouses from Maple.
I recently found a couple of darling black and white dresses, both heavily influenced by vintage styles, both from relatively under-blogged stores and oddly enough, I wore my hair in braids with both of them, though totally by accident. What was not an accident was my choice of shoes – the hottest shoes ever, ever, evah! But first, here’s a lovely black and white pop print from Lost Dreams with the useful and descriptive name Retro Dress.
This dress also has a pop print though the shape is a good decade older. It’s name is Delana Kisses, an unhelpful name unles you think those teardrop shapes remind you of Hershey’s Kisses or something. This is from ROC.
