The Season Hunt is back and with it, two pretty sexy shorts from The Secret Store. I am showing here the coral one. While I was away, Maitreya has released new tucked shirts. They come in a variety of colors and i’ve picked it in wasabi to contrast with the orange of the bottom.
The poses are from ADORKable, the coy set, which has animations showing expression without difforming the body too much and this is rare enough to mention.

I said yesterday I should move a bit to try and discover new shops. Well, I have been doing it half today. Half only because none of the stores where I have shopped is actualy new to me. Beginning with Adam n Eve. Back when I hadn’t had the very bad idea to use my credit card yet, I used to dream over some dresses and skins from that store. I was pretty pleased yesterday when Sachi Vixen kindly offered me to use her new Lindsay skin for my blog. Lindsay will be available at the Skin and Shape Expo on the 10th May by the way.
Not new either is Vita’s Boudoir. I have always admired the designs but these are a bit too much haute couture and formal for my daily casual look. It was a nice surprise to see this denimology dress. It is formal enough that you could wear it at a garden party or a wedding but not so formal that I feel like I am in disguise.
Finaly, Bax Coen Ankle Boots. Those shoes are so much well known that it is almost impossible to stumble upon someone who has never heard of the store. They regularly present new colors to a collection which has become one of the basics of Second Life Fashion.
The accessories and jewels are from Baiastice and Donna Flora to complete a look which is a bit different from what I usualy wear. But change is good and soemtimes needed. I hope you’ll like it.

I hope you all know this fantastic song from Billy Joel, “Uptown Girl”. For the youngers, there is a version from Westlife but… definately, go for the original! I had fun watching the video clip from Billy Joel yesterday so I decided to inspire today’s post from it. A big thank you to Ernesto Pennell, a great friend of mine, who helped me with these pictures. With such a downtown man, wouldn’t you all want to be an uptown girl?
She’s been living in her uptown world
I bet she’s never had a backstreet guy
I bet her momma never told her why
I’m gonna try for an uptown girl
She’s been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s looking for a downtown man
That’s what I am ”
… “Uptown girl
You know I can’t afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She’ll understand what kind of guy I’ve been
And then I’ll win
And when she’s walking
She’s looking so fine
And when she’s talking
She’ll say that she’s mine” …
