Beachwear From Zaara

Image

 

Once again, I am probably a little late to the party, but while visiting Zaara yesterday, and checking out her new mesh items, this sweet little bikini and cover-up immediately caught my eye. Zaara doesn’t have a lot of mesh so far, but what’s there is unique and very high quality. The textures for her mesh are amazingly well-done and realistic, and these items are no different. In fact, I think she raised the bar with these. The bikinis are available in a ton of colors, and the cover-ups, which can be worn with or without something underneath (but are super-sheer so be careful if you wear nothing underneath, Ladies), are designed to match well with the various bikini colors. In fact, mixing and matching will still result in an incredibly lovely look. Zaara’s mesh is among the more expensive mesh, I have to say, but well worth the lindens if you have them. The bikinis are all done in pretty metallic textures and and the details on the cover-ups, which also uses materials for the gold accenting, are so soft and pretty you might never want to take it off. I can easily imagine spending the entire rest of my summer wearing nothing but this outfit. Note: Be careful, though. I purchases the Coral color of the cover-up, and was a little disappointed to see that there was a ‘small’ mistake in that the “s” mesh size in the Coral pack was actually the Pearl shade. Unfortunately, I wear a “s” in most mesh, and this was no exception, so although I didn’t buy the Pearl, it’s the one I ended up wearing. Zaara is currently on vacation, and her manager, Strawberry Singh, is unable to unable to replace the mistake with the correct version at this time. I’m sure that once Zaara is made aware, or returns from vacation, she will send the correct shade.

I couldn’t wait to wear and blog this, though, and the Pearl is lovely in it’s own right. Just not really the color that I wanted. Meh. Mistakes happen and creators aren’t infallible.

Ricielli At TDR Fusion

Image

It’s a new round of The Dressing Room Fusion (where the majority of items are between L40 and L70) and they have some really nice things this round. I’ve also noticed a couple of new designers who have added their wares to the mix, so that was nice to see. My favorite outfit is this blazer and high-waisted pants from Ricielli. They are sold as separates, but together are less than what you normally pay for just one item…and, MESH! The pants fit perfectly and I love the realistic texturing and folds. The blazer can be worn with or without the plan white t-shirt underneath, so if you’re feeling very daring, you can leave that off and go full-out sexy. I added some splash of color to the monochromatic look with this hair, which is available from Tameless at the Hair Fair. While I adore mesh, and tend to now avoid any longer prim hairstyles (because I’m not a fan of the way it cuts into your body), I think that flexi-prims still work great with shorter hair and adds a nice movement and flow to your look. So, go shopping, take a walk in the park or wear it on a date..it’s a great outfit for any and all of the above.

Dead Dollz At Love Donna Flora Event

Image

Helllooooo, Fellow Bloggers

As some of you may know, Squinternet Larnia, the creator behind the Donna Flora brand, is fighting a battle right now with cancer. As I’m sure many of you have, I have a LOT of personal experience with my own family members and friends who have fought the battle, also. Some have won…and, sadly, some have not. To help Squinternet fight this in the best way possible, there will be a fundraiser, Love Donna Flora, going on from July 25th through August 11, where each designer involved will offer at least one exclusive item, along with other creations. I urge you, if at all possible, to shop this event. It is for a great cause, for a talented creator, who needs all of the help she can get. One thing I have learned is that Second Life residents are a passionate and generous group of people, so I know that you will all come out in droves to support Squinternet.

Kiddo Oh of Dead Dollz has released, for this event exclusively, this lovely dress, the Chocolat Cocktail Dress, and once again, I am in love with one of her creations. It’s such a pretty dress, with sweet texturing and pretty lace undershirt. Totally feminine and sexy, you can’t go wrong with this outfit. It comes with a HUD, so you have 2 color options. The one which I am displaying, as well as an option for a brown, trimmed in cream. It’s just lovely!

Dead Dollz At Summer Break Festival

Image

 

There’s a new event going on (yes, another one) at the moment and Dead Dollz has some new items available at Summer Break Festival, and this lovely little mesh bikini is my absolute favorite! It’s been sooooo hot here (and almost everywhere else) that to put on a sweet little bikini and play in the water was the perfect way to spend an hour of my time today. Even though just virtually, I actually felt cooler after this photo shoot. Funny how our minds work, isn’t it? This lovely little 2 piece, as with anything from Kiddo Oh, is very well textured, and the REALLY lovely thing is that it comes with a HUD and the choice of 5 different textures, including 2 which are crochet. Since I like color, and I like choices even more, it’s the perfect bikini for me. 

ImageImage

 

And here is a little collage so that you can see all of the texture options available. I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do:

Image

Dead Dollz has several items available at SBF, but another new one is this pretty peasant-style crop blouse which comes with a denim maxi skirt, and is the perfect thing to wear for, oh, just about anything, really. I’ve paired it with this unique hair from Ohmai, available at Hair Fair 2013.

More From The Muses And The Hair Fair

Image

 

Just a short post for this one. 🙂 This is another awesome creation from The Muses which I picked up during their recent MP sale. I’ve had my eye on this for quite some time, and was happy to finally be able to pick up this absolutely gorgeous gown and cape. I felt positively royal wearing this…even if slightly medieval royalty. However, I realized that a queen must have a crown…and this lovely hair by Lelutka, with it’s pretty flowered crown, completed the outfit perfectly. Every woman should feel like a queen now and then, don’t you think?

The Muses And A Hair Fair

Image

I was only able to visit one sim so far for this year’s Hair Fair, however, it was the exact sim I wanted, so I was fine with that. This cute hair is from Mina, and it comes in several different color packs, as well as having a sweet beaded headband with a few color change options. This was one of my immediate favorites, so being able to “score” it yesterday felt like an accomplishment for me and I was quite thrilled. I also snatched up a few other of my favorites, which I’ll show in coming posts.

Also, last week, the stores of Port Seraphim, or more specifically, The Muses, Volstead, Geometry and Pale Empress had a 3-day Marketplace sale, and all single items were…get this…L99!!!! I was finally able to get those last few dresses from The Muses which I had been eyeing for quite some time, as well as a couple of other things. While going through my purchases and remembering that this outfit, called “Hunt”, had quite a few colors included, I couldn’t resist pairing it with this hair, and to add a little bit of mystery, the eyes from Dead Apple. So, here is Shiloh as The Huntress. 🙂
