A Walk in the Dunes

Hello,

A walk in the dunes 3

When I was a kid and a teenager, I used to spend all the Easter Holidays at the Belgium Coast, more exactly, in the Westhoek, a place between dunes and woods. Now, it is full of buildings and all the places where I used to play as a kid are gone. I am trying to recreate an idealized version of it in Second Life where my avatar could have a walk.

A walk in the dunes

For this walk, i’ve chosen a girlish outfit with shorts from Fishy Strawberry you can find in a pack with plenty of other goodies for a very low price at The Dressing Room. The top is a new release from Acid & Mala for only 60 L$ for Super Bargain Saturday.

The wonderful harstyle is one of the new releases from LeLutka. It is made of two parts, the bangs being attached to the chest but it can also be worn without for a more stylish effect. Note I’ve moded the bows to color them blue as they are normaly only black, brown or tan.

Next week, i will offer another shape for 1L$ also for 1 week only and the same in 2 weeks with a 3rd shape. That means 3 new quality shapes!

The first week shape is Joanne:

New Exodi Sylvan Skin

Hello,

Exodi Sylvan vivante

For once, i wanted to play the real fashion blogger, to write a skin review, to take snapshots of all the tones of the beautiful new :: Exodi :: skin, Sylvan, without post-processing them. We can have a sneak preview at FLF and if you don’t run immediately to Exodi to get that skin, you’re missing a huge deal, by the way. Sylvan has beautiful lips and the skin has that transluscent quality that allows to keep tiny quality details while still being lighten up.

BUT… SL decided otherwise. I am too tired to fight with SL tonight so, here is one picture of the skin only, the vivante tone, and it is post-processed, but not that much that it changes dramatically the skin. The treatment consists in: cropping, soothing some hard edges due to shadows, liquifying edges due to SL, upping the curves to lighten the picture which was a bit too dark.

FLF again

Alice FLF

I’ve only picked only two items at this round of the Fifty Linden Friday this week but they are high quality and totally a bargain for 50 L$. The first one is a sexy outfit from 5th & Oxford made of a tweed mini-skirt and a short sweater.

The second item is the Halloween themed necklace from Miel. It is so original with the central spider reaching for a tiny butterfly entangled in the cords which form the collar. I totally love the idea!

Do you want a new boyfriend?

Hello,

Vincent

I don’t have a boyfriend so I decided to make myself one! Don’t blame me, I just had to… You see, Belleza has released 2 new male skins, Owen and Shawn and you can get previews of both in all tones if you’re a member of their group. The entry is 250 L$ but for such a price, it is not a deal, it is a steal!

I haven’t tried to make a babyface but a man with character. I hope you’ll like him as I have to say I have a crush on him.

Vincent Portrait

When a male friend asks me where he can get great clothes, i always direct him to the same shops, so, there is where i went to dress Vincent :SEY, Primitive Design and Aoharu. The desert boots from Primitive Design are only 120 L$. A real bargain for such quality. I couldn’t believe my eyes. For the hair, I paid a visit to Exile where they have some great new releases we don’t see enough.

As Vincent is not really my boyfriend (cries) I might aswell share him with you. You can get the shape in world at ** Dunes ** or on the Marketplace. The shape comes in 2 sizes: 1m93 and 2m10. A style card and a bald base are included in the box if you want to look exactly like the model.

In the woods

Hello,

Just a few words to tell you to run to Exile: 5 brand new haircuts at 50% price to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the brand. I am wearing here one of them, Serana, a gorgeous floating long style, full of movement. While I was at Exile, I admit i’ve inspected someone wearing a wonderful medieval gown from Quality Design. With those hair and gown colors, I wanted a fall decor so I went to visit Alirium and voilĂ , here is today’s pic!

Platinum Hunt

Bored with hunts where you end up deleting 99 items on 100 due to the poor quality of the gifts? Then, the Platinum Hunt is for you!

Cherry Platinum

Cherry Platinum Portrait

For once, you will have to pay 10 L$ to get the items but believe me, you won’t regret it as most are fantastic. I’ve quickly put up a look together to tease you with what you will be able to get at the Platinum Hunt. This does not mean i am showing you only the best items cause there are plenty of others and for everyone’s tastes.
The hunt will start on August 8th and ends on August 31st.
Please note that all the items I am wearing are from the hunt except for the eyes you can get at the Exodi hunt and Maitreya Shoes which are nor free nor cheap.
