Red Makes Everything Better

3


So as I excitedly watched a friend decorate my house (that has been empty for dayyys) I put this look together. The sweater dress is from Temptation. It’s a store that I’m not familiar with, but how could I pass up this group freebie?? And in dark red? OMG perfect for me. It comes in many other vibrant colors and the detail is beautiful including the wide slit on the side.

I layered it up with DCNY’s new Applique Top and loved the effect!

Elikatira’s Comfort totally topped off this look and made everything adorable!

Just A Little (love)

Whatever did we do before sculpty skirts?? Before hip-hiding alphas? I found one example of a lovely frou frou skirt I just adore at (love)… the Belle Poplin Skirt. I am in love with the shape of this skirt and the whispy layer underneath it. It’s floaty and delicate and perfect for spring. With my hips, this particular skirt really needed the invisible hip alpha layer, so if you’re not using the most current SL Viewer, you might want to be very frugal with your layers.

To toughen up the sweet just a tad, I added mon tissu’s Porter Jean Jacket.

The background pic was taken at The Untroubled Sound, a place I found from following Chestnut Rau’s blog, Second Life of My Dreams. She visits many wonderful places in SL so her blog is a great guide if you’re looking to see more of SL so check it out!

Spring’s Coming

Although I consider myself girly, it’s only around springtime that I really feel cutesy and want all those gorgeous, pale, frilly short dresses and I want pinks and flowers and yellows and bunnies and greens.

Since really coming back to SL, one of the best new finds for me is Janie Marlowe’s progression from her previous brand Mischief to the new Jane. Staying with the concept of low pricing and a wide color palette, Jane has been introducing some lovely spring dresses lately that are rich in hue and delicate and fun in shape and design.

The *New* DCNY

DCNY has reopened it’s doors today with a brand new collection of awesome seperates! Among the offerings is the Crochet Top (shown here in Orchid) – that I modestly shoved a bra under – paired with the Everything Jeans in dark wash. The colors are vibrant and declare that spring is about to hit us big time, even if the weather isn’t really showing it yet. The top is also uber sexy with nothing underneath.

With this re-opening, the store already has quite a selection of beautifully made pieces in every color imaginable. Incredible prices make all this quality quite a steal! And it was really nice to find a few perks such as black and white versions of the Basic Tanks included in multi-color packs.

I found that all of the pieces were made with an eye for detail and a flair for color and style. Head on over and check it out and make sure you pick up the re-opening gifts!

ILY Face

These are some of my favs from Skin Fair

Curio Pout… beautiful. Very much on the youthful side, this gorgeous skin wowed me. It’s been a while since I have been so totally enamored with a Curio skin. The lips are like a luscious ripe apple just screaming “BITE ME”. Wanting to love a skin and then finding that you do? Wonderful.

Mynerva. Yayyy new to me skin! I chose this one because of it’s raw beauty. The skin is designed to be sold as a more basic skin that includes a ‘no brow’ option so that you can take advantage of all the wonderful 2.0 makeups out there. Shown here, is just the skin – brows opted!

And this here is Lara’s Ava. Lara has been one of my favorite skins recently. The flawless, soft complexion combined with full lips makes this an ideal skin that I’ve seen work well on many shapes.

Molto Bene is bellissimo!

Muah! That’s the extent of my Italian, but I think molto bene! means awesometastical and full of yummy goodness… it must! Because that’s just what this new Harwich Mini Colonial and it’s big brother the Harwich Colonial are!

Annunziata Macchi has been hard at work and honing her building skills to bring you beautiful detail and fabulous texture work. Photo’d here are both versions, but I focused on the Mini because Anna has it so adorably decorated and it just makes me feel like home ❤

The roomy living room is full of openness with the multiple windows and warm wood flooring. The sunny color of the walls helps to make this space homey and cozy. As you see, you can cram a bunch of people in there! And this is the mini! Imagine what you could cram into the full version??

The contrast of colorings for the rooms is brilliant and lends to a sense of whimsy along with the comfort that this home brings. Such rich, vibrant colors set the perfect palette on which you can create your own look and show off your character.

Though not necessarily a beach home, the colors and textures just smack of summer and eating out on the patio as the sun goes down and the day begins to cool off. The house is full of gorgeous detail like the one above the doorway, shown above, that is mirrored in the doors and windows throughout.

Upstairs you find the perfect sanctuary to this home… a quiet, peaceful little nook to dream.

Annunziata’s warmth and cheerful attitude shows throughout this latest build. Her taste and excellent style is represented throughout the home with the pieces she chooses to decorate with. Again, hints of cool summer breezes and the tranquility of the sea are reflected in the bedroom.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The Harwich Colonial… in all it’s glory is perfect for the starter SL family or a roomate situation.  Pictured below is just a glimpse of the add-ons to the mini… including the back deck with dual french doors and the upstairs balcony.
