I got so excited when I was asked to submit a weekly lingerie post. I adore lingerie and it gave me the perfect excuse to buy more, and to explore some new stores selling it.
You see, lingerie is not like other clothes. It’s special. Choosing lingerie is about how it makes me feel, rather than how it looks. It’s not like it gets seen by many people!
This piece is from a new store to me, HAS BEEN. Terrie Dreadlow’s designs have a hint of the fifties to them and the demo for the sweetness lingerie instantly transported me to a feeling of coy retro cuteness. The bodysuit is all mesh, and fit me perfectly straight out of the box. Don’t you just love when that happens.
It came with a HUD that offers a huge variety of colour options. You can customise the front panel, sides, bows and the ribbons that run down the length. Every colour and every texture are gorgeously detailed. Plus, it’s only 99L. There’s no excuse not to explore your inner bunny!
The shoes were also from HAS BEEN and included the same HUD with tons of options. These were in the lights pack. There is also a darks pack.
Lingerie doesn’t have to be all lace, frills and barely there. It just has to make me feel special. This set does that and so much more.

It’s only a Tuesday. But I felt like giving it a date night look today in my SL. I got out my jewelry armoire and pulled out some pieces from Donna Flora, my favorite jewelry store of all time. Her jewelry still stands the test of time and is worth stopping by if you haven’t for a while. It’s lovely. Continue reading →
Queen Elizabeth I had it right some 450 years ago when she said “I would not open windows into men’s souls.” We all have opinions and we have a right to them — even if they are stupid, destructive and wrong. I think most of agree on that. Where we diverge is when our opinions move to actions that impinge on other people. That happens all the time in society. Much of politics is about building enough political power to be able to take our opinions and move them into actions that impinge on others whether it’s trying to prevent others from marrying whom they love or blocking companies from polluting our groundwater – it is about making our opinions trump those of others.
But there are places where moving from thought to action has no place. The particular circumstance I am thinking of is the effort people make to discourage others from giving to or supporting community efforts to help others in Second Life®. We all may have opinions about the relative merits of one fundraiser over another and we certainly should make no effort to support anything we disagree with. We might think this person is not doing enough to help herself or that person’s need is frivolous or distrust the circumstances or even doubt there is a real need. That’s fine. Skepticism is a healthy quality to have.
However, there is no Selective Service Administration drafting designers and ordering them to produce for this tour. Shoppers are not herded into venues to spend money against their will. Moreover, if you are a shopper and buy a pair of shoes for 250L at a fundraiser, you get a pair of shoes that would cost 250L or more at the store since designers often discount for fundraisers. You’re not donating, you’re shopping. You might spend a little more because you think it’s for a good cause, but you get a fair return for your money.You lose nothing. The only people who risk are the creators and if they have made the decision to contribute, that’s their prerogative.
There are a couple of fundraisers right now to help individuals with urgent family needs. The hair, dress, shoes, mani/pedi and necklace in today’s outfit come from one of those events, <3Ulaa. <3Ulaa is raising funds to help Ulaa Coronet to take her son to meet his grandmother for the first and final time. His grandmother is dying of cancer. For me, this is a compelling need and one that I think is worthy of my time and my lindens – and that’s my prerogative. If you don’t agree, don’t shop there. You will miss out on all sorts of adorability, but that’s your prerogative Continue reading →
I confess that my Friday night outfit started with the shoes, and everything else had to fall in line above them. Blacks and greys won out, spun together regardless of pattern, which works just fine. The new shoes from L.Warwick are out for LeaMetallique as well as sassy new hair from ploom from district 5 – perfect for casual looks this weekend. Continue reading →
I covet things I see released, in fierce ways sometimes. These earrings from Bliensen + Maitai for instance were a must have the moment she plurked them.
The earrings are available at We <3 Roleplay event. The coordinating jewelry is available at…….I forget. Now I have to blog it again so I can say the name. Drat. OH WELL THE HARDSHIPS I ENDURE. #Secondlifebloggerproblems.
I home with the plague, but before I became ill pixel Gidge was trying out some new goodies she thinks you’ll like. If you haven’t been to COLLABOR88 yet, it’s time to go! This dress from Teefy is so cute, it was hard to pick which color! Continue reading →
I jumped into the ocean this morning to see how deep I could go. You can imagine my surprise when no matter how deep I went, the ocean continued to welcome me. I eventually swam down so deep, I met it’s King, who welcomed me with open arms. Continue reading →
Sometimes life can change “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” and nothing is the same after that. Two weeks ago, that happened to my sister when she learned she had breast cancer. She made me promise not to freak out or worry, so I tried, but I did not succeed. When we all lost my brother to cancer; it was easier. I always assumed he would get cancer from chain smoking all his life and that’s what happened. But my sister does not smoke, does not drink except for a glass of wine now and then and, as a nutritionist herself, has always favored a healthy diet and exercise at a local gym. In essence, she did all the right things and still got got dealt the cancer card.
