Yummy New Pumps!

Aloha lovelies! Summer is still in full swing and so is fun summer fashion in Second Life. Nardya Rousselot of NX-Nardcotix has just released these multi-colored heels called, Shana Unleashed. They come in several color options, and the one shown below is in White:

I had so much joy creating an outfit around Shana Unleashed because of all the color options and style options available to play with. I immediately went to my Apple May wardrobe and put on the Cara II Classic outfit (confession: I have been searching for the perfect pumps to complete Cara II since I got this outfit maybe a year ago now?!). Then, I found these lovely large earrings by 3636 called, Dropz Pinkz.

And, what better way to set off my posh swimsuit style than with a pair of *big* sunglasses! These are by Paper Couture called, Heirress. The updo I am wearing is by Loq Hairs called, Turkish, and is available for a limited time at The Dressing Room.

Time to go live it up now that I'm dressed and ready to go! Cheers!

Skin? Yes, please!!

Hello my fellow fashion lovers! Tell me - can a girl ever have too many skins in Second Life? Especially well detailed skins? /me hears a loud 'Hell no!' response... Hmm..My thoughts exactly :o)

Reila Karu of Reila Skins & Fashions just released her latest skin line named, "Tiffany," and hands-down, this skin oozes with beautiful, highly-detailed quality. Tiffany is a soft-glowing skin with highlights that accentuate the body's best assets appropiately. Check out the full body and close-up previews below:

Reila Skins - Tiffany Medium 1FBS

Reila Skins - Tiffany Medium 1
Tiffany comes in 6 different makeups and hairbase + cleavage options. Also included is a shape, eyebrow base and a pair of eyes - definitely a complete avatar package and definitely worth trying on.

Hair Fair Starts Tomorrow!

*Hears the hair angels sing*

Mm yeah...It must be a sure sign that it's that time of the year folks. So, quick question - have you been saving? Tomorrow marks the first day for Hair Fair 2011, and you'll only have 13 whole days to navigate through 4 (yes, four!) sims of locks. Speaking of locks, proceeds from all hairdos will benefit the real-life organization, Wigs for Kids. Wigs for Kids provides wigs to children who have endured a medical condition where the child has lost his/her hair.

There's several notable stores participating this year, including, but certainly not limited to, Elikatira, LoQ Hairs, Magika, Exile, Amacci and much-much more. To my surprise, there also seems to be a longer list of smaller/perhaps lesser-known hair shops - so, definitely worth checking out.

You can find a complete list of participating hair stores, and their respective slurls, on the Hair Fair's official website.

I'll be busy stuffing my already cluttered inventory with more demo awesomeness - So stay tuned for my top 5 picks!

'Til next time!

Caught You Looking..!

So loving the latest release from Butterfly Effectz. It's called 'Caughty You Looking.' This ensemble comes in several colors, and today I chose to show off the Peachy color. Check it out:

This ensemble sets a great example of what it means for an outfit to be fun and flirty - all the way from the close-knit fit to the sheer frills and bow on the hip. I envisioned this outfit going well with an upcoming pair of heels from Diktator called, Inna. However, they are yet to be released. You can catch a sneak peak of them here.

TO Second Life that is! Okay, so this isn't a review NOR is it a compilation of current awesome items in SL; but rather, it's about a new fantastic feature coming to the next Second Life client which will transform nearly everything in the game. And, yes, it's called Mesh. There's all sorts of speculation right now about the power of Mesh and what it will all effect and to whom will it effect. I found a great video on YouTube that explains and shows what Mesh is and will do to the game of Second Life as we know it - as far as builds are concerned. Watch it here.

Imagine how avatars and clothes will look under the "Mesh-Influence." Fellow blogger and fashion designer, Siddean Munro, has posted a wonderful FAQ and a sample photo all about MESH here.

You decide if it's a good or maybe a bad thing for the game. Leave a comment or, better yet, leave me a message on my Plurk.

Til next time,

24 Hrs. Only!

Although there is a skin fair and shape expo going on right now, you definitely will not want to miss out on the latest quickie deal from Candy Doll. Right now, Candy Doll is offereing itsTamara skin for only 50L *and* its only for the next 24 hrs.! Tamara comes with 4 cleavage options and is only in the Tan skin tone.
I really love the softness of this skin and the overall matte - it gives a very real and fresh look to it.

Fair Palooza, Links & Other Info!

Have you been snoozin' lately? If so, you might have missed the announcements of several expos and a fair that have already kicked off and those just kicking off.

First up - Skin & Shape Expo!

The Skin & Shape Expo has a long list of designers participating this year that includes, but certainly not limited to the following: Pink Fuel, Adam N Eve, Curio, Atomic, Leafy, Vive9, Imagen and more! It is no way associated with the Skin Fair! The Skin & Shape Expo only runs for 10 days, so that is technically now 'til the 20th (6 days left!) ...Teleport to the Skin & Shape Expo

Next up is the Home & Garden Expo! Even if you're homeless in SL (like me, at times), you might still want to stop by to see all the creative creations creators have prepared for this event. There's surely something for everyone! I know I will be heading there soon to stock up on inventory, because, turns out I don't have as much house items as I previously thought. The Home Expo just opened yesterday at noon and ends Sunday, May 22nd. For a complete list of participants visit the official blog here.

Last but certainly not least, Shoe Fair 2011:

Oh Yes! By the time I post this the Shoe Fair 2011 will have already kicked off! Did you think it just happened? Well, you're not alone. If you're like me, you mayy be thinking - didn't we just have one? But, really, if there was a shoe fair every week I wouldn't even protest! It's true. I love shoes and I'm so excited to go get my shopping on tomorrow! See all the new shoes at the fair this year here.

As with any fair or expo there are sure to be lots of avatars tp'ing in with scripts and heavy please, be kind and detach and everyone will be grateful for that much less lag in the sims!

Kisses everyone! I'll be sure to snap pics along my journey through all the fairs slash expos this weekend so stay tuned for that and more!

Love, Tekila V.

The Diamond is Mine Hunt starts now through April 11th. One of the dozens of store participating is Pink Fuel. I stopped by there to begin my hunt ( I know - off track!), and I'm excited to say I found the Elly skin in Honey tone with both open mouth/closed mouth features. There are also different eyebrow color options! Check out Elly:


I have never tried on a Pink Fuel skin even though it's always been on my SL to-do list. So, surprisingly, I find myself in love with the overall quality of Mochi Milena's skins - the lips are glossy, the eyeshadow bright and the highlights of the toned body detail are right on point. Definitely a treat for skin-lovers!

Love Day Goodies

Well, whether you've been dreading it..or looking forward to it..Valentine's Day will be here within a few days. Designers in SL are definitely spreading some love across the grid by having hunts with a majority of the prizes being free - as well as several stores giving out free/dollarbie gifts. Here, below, are just a few of the many V-Day finds myself and my good friend, MsRam were able to find, both in-world and on the web:


Top Photo
G*Field, hunt items: red balloon dress, shoes (50L), heart earrings, heart purse
+plus, Africa Necklace, not free

Bottom Photo
Va Creations, swimsuit, free
BodyMix, boots, dollarbie

One of my favorite stores I always love to frequent, Apple May, has not one..not two..not three - but get this, 7 tones available in her FREE Valentine skin called, Katey, shown here:


TP to Apple May

Well, do you Plurk? It's SL's best answer to twittering amongst the fashion world and Addict designer, Kianna Noel is no stranger. She is currently giving all her friends (and, yes, new friends) this gift via-Plurk:
If you're not a member - what are ya waiting for!? Sign up & friend her today here.

On a final note...I would like to say..that sure, Valentine's Day is about love - but, remember as kids, everyone exchanged Valentine cards and candies? Because Valentine's day was about sharing and, clichely enough, it was about caring, too. Even today, I personally see V-day as another reason to say to someone you're appreciated. So, to everyone...designers, readers, fellow bloggers and all those in this Second Life...Happy Valentine's Day to you ♥

Fantastic Finds!

I just want to commend our designers in Second Life who make it affordable to splurge on great products! It's seems like such a rarity to find a truly incredible deal, gift and/or dollarbie while out and about shopping. My photo below features just those kind of deals from designers who I feel are on the consumer's side of saving! Good looking out!

Not only is this hair awesome - it's an absolutely free gift by Dark Mouse. That means it is actually 0L and *YES* its a fatpack!! *Pauses for everyone to take that in for a second* Next…How amazing is this skin? It’s from a new skin shop that just opened called, Change. It comes with cleavage and hair base options, /me smiles for that. And, drumroll please! My entire outfit is by a little shop called, Guarded Teens, and it’s only 75L..NOTE: this outfit does include hair and shoes, too, but is not shown above* Guarded Teen has several other ensembles for the same price and come with just as much! Last, but certainly not least, the super awesome Sonata boots are a new release from Dilly Dolls and they too are only 75L a pop!! Lv these products!

New Boots!

Hello out there blogosphere! Here's to hoping that you're having a wonderful Sunday night...Tonight, I'm sharing with you new boots that have something in common with me... my name - Tekila! They are sequined and are McQueen-inspired (or Miss Gaga, if you prefer). I snapped so many shots in them it was hard to pick which to use to show you all! Check them out:


They just so happened to go well with the sequined outfit I have called, Copper Tone. Luckily, you can find both the shoes and the outfit at the same place - Butterfly Effectz!

TP to *BE*

I also wanted to note the skin I'm wearing. It's from a store called Iconic by Nicole Button. This store is closing and the skin shown above is one of three that is still available until it's gone for good. No set date when the store will close; but, never fear - Ms. Button is starting a new store - Opening date unknown, as well.

More to come - stay tuned!
