VU for Hashtag

I am so beyond thrilled that my dear friend Vanessadelrio Underwood has brought her talents back into the designing ring in SL.  Her brand, VU, is unique in all the best ways, and her textures are simply amazing.

VU debuts the Midtown Cardigan and Slim Skirt at this month’s Hashtag event.  The cardigan comes in Envy (shown), Coal and Cran(berry), with a black pencil skirt, and the sparkly effect on the belted cardigan is simply gorgeous.  This is a must-have for that impromptu office party!

Winter Gachas!

Being the gacha addict I am, I just had to spend a bit of time at The Arcade and Epiphany the other night.  Contrary to several complaints I’ve seen lately about these two events, I certainly found plenty of goodies to fill my stockings and a few for my friends, from snowmobiles, to kittens in stockings, to clothes, shoes, hats and much more!

Here are a few of my favorite finds.  First up, that Snowbunny puffer jacket from REIGN.  It comes in 10 different colors, with Blush shown here (got it in aqua, too, which I also love).  Next up are the Ayeka heels in Nude by Breathe.  Topping things off is the adorable Tree Trimmings 1 hat from Atomic.  I loved those hats so much that I played probably more than I should have, but the machine had so many cute styles I had to have them all!

Finally, to tie the whole thing together, we have the Cosy Christmas 5 backdrop from Paparazzi.  Merry Christmas, everyone!

Wearable Art!

I love art, in all its many forms.  I love the colors, the textures, the creative genius that goes into making something that brings such pleasure to the world, and many a pleasant evening has been spent wandering the art galleries of Second Life.

I particularly love wearable art, and no one does it better than OrManga, the creative mind behind the avant garde fashion and accessories at . Or ., one of my favorite shops.

I received a notecard yesterday about a new release at the . Or . mainstore and simply had to run over and buy it immediately!  This gorgeous creation, the Hoeule necklace, is a veritable feast for the eyes.  The necklace comes with a color change hud with five options each for pearls and stones, and is available in your choice of gold or silver.

Four blades surround the throat, and the dimension, depth and sheer size of this necklace is nothing short of amazing.  I’m sure I’ll be looking for more outfits to pair with this gorgeous piece.

Chop Zuey La Glace – Demi-Parure

I’m a huge fan of long necklaces, and it’s rare to find one as gorgeous and versatile as this one by Chop Zuey.

La Glace – Demi-Parure comes with matching tassle earrings (not shown) and 3 necklaces in varying lengths.  There is an additional set of 7 different styles of matching earrings (Style C shown on L ear and Style F on R ear).  Both sets come with a huge color-change hud, with options for stones, tassles and chain color.

Art Appreciation

It’s been a while since I last posted anything here, but having just experienced one of the best customer service encounters I have ever had in SL, I just have to give Cristal Designs a shout-out via blog post.  I’d had an issue with a tiny little thing and contacted the designer about it last night.  By the time I logged in this afternoon, the issue had been fixed and I had a corrected outfit in my inventory.  So thank you, Cristal Sommersley, for your kindness and your help.

The outfit is called Kristin, and it comes in black, teal and burgundy, in sizes to fit most mesh bodies, including Slink, Belleza, Maitreya and eBody.  The boots are included, so that’s an extra bonus!  The black version was on the current $55L Thursday sales list, and I instantly fell in love with it because it’s just so me!  See this outfit and much, much more at Cristal Designs.
