The Secret Store

The Secret Store

The other day, Maylee Oh had the great idea to add me as a contact on flickr. I am used to first have a look at other’s people picture before I add them aswell. While doing that, i’ve discovered Maylee had a shop: The Secret Store. There was that advertisement for some bags i found so cute and I decided to teleport to have a look. Once in the shop, i’ve discovered accessories and clothes, ranging from kawaii style to stylish. What I’ve seen there is designed with quality at a reasonable price. I’ve picked some items to create this look and I’ll definately go back in some time to check what’s new.

At the same time, I’ve seen Adorkable had new poses, with one set made for bags. After a short trip to the Deck, I was quickly convinced these were the poses I needed as they are cute, give the feeling they are not static but that the avatar is in move while not deforming too much the body.

I am also wearing the new LAQ Claudia skin in Peach. This is not really my style but I am sure she has the features a lot of girls are looking for: pulpous lips, thin nose and wide eyes in a mediterranean style face. She actualy reminds me of Sophia Loren, a great, beautiful italian actress who is very stylish.

Something Missing

Hello,

No Arms

I love that new LeLutka poncho, I love the design, I love the texture, I love it, really … but… I can’t get accustomed to having the arms hidden inside. When I look at my avatar I feel like something is missing. I guess, this is photo stock. Great piece of clothing to take pictures but I unfortunately won’t wear it on other occasion. Too bad, i really like it apart from that “detail”.

Best in Blonde

Don’t tell me you haven’t heard about it, I won’t believe you! Elikapeka Tiramisu has opened a new hair store! Yeah!!! My first favorite hair designer is back. for those of you who haven’t had the chance to know ETD, it was simply the best hair shop in SL for a very long time. Of course, now, we have plenty of great hair designers who have stepped in, all the best for our heads but back in those days, ETD used to be my favorite store as it had natural realistic textures and volumes. I’ve got that new hairstyle in several colors and while it looks great in any color, blonde is simply THE color for that style. Like Sassy Scarborough said on Plurk, it is just too much like Sharon Stone.

On this picture, you can also admire the new lipstick make-up by Launa Fauna. It works great with different skins i’ve been trying. I am so glad Launa did those make-up as I like the lips on her skins so much, and the reds are just the perfect addition to many make-ups as you often have only one make-up with red lips in fatpacks. Lately, I almost always wear eyes from L.Fauna. They have everything I am looking for: great details, right size of the iris, the pupil is nor too big nor too small, shadows and reflections, they are just the best to me at the moment.

King Solomon’s Mines

Hello,

one of Shaï Delacroix latest releases at the Modavia Fashion show made me think about some movie I’ve seen when i was a kid in 1987: King Solomon’s mine, the version with Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone. I am not sure I will find any gold here but i’ll go on looking for Allan Quatermain.

Hello,

As you can see, I am still playing with the fabulous hair from Dernier Cri. The top is part of an outfit from Epic, which appears in SL’s Virtual Fashion Lookbook for Fall 2010. To celebrate, there is a 50% off sale on all the clothing featured in the lookbook. I have to say I didn’t know that store before. It is full of cute fairy and faun fashion. The skirt from SMS is available at The Dressing Room.

Iki Ikarus has once again spoiled the Dutch Touch VIP group with a preview of the upcoming skin: Josje. This skin is described to be a girl’s next door rather than a beauty queen but i bet a lot of people would like to have such a cute neighbour!
