Where Am I….

Always wanting to find new places to explore and see and yesterday was no exception when I found this wondrous place called “alpha tribe” even after 8 years of being in SL I still am so amazed at the creativity along with the imagination that make me just sit in awe of their talents ~ yes it was all about finding a place to show off this dress but I could not wonder how they come up with this ~ guess my brain is very limited in that creative process as even words at times fail me to describe this place ~ but am urging you to come see what am talking about ~ you will not be disappointed in the place nor the dress I am gonna show you ~

KiB Designs ~ “Kamila” 

This dress called “Kamila” by KiB Designs is very flirty and fun to wear ~ fabric is nice, fit is perfect ~ and each dress comes in 2 styles as I will show you the texture box below

texture

Kamila Choices 

As you can see by the above pic there are 4 choices of colors and coordinating on the bottom row directly underneath is the 2nd choice that will come with each dress….the colors are soft and silky as well silk lace ribbon that highlights your waist ~

2nd dress that comes with 1st pic 

The fit needs no adjustments and there are plenty of sizes along with ones for Mesh bodies like Maitreya that I am wearing ~ not sure please try the demo before you buy…KiB is also offering a necklace and bracelets at Designer Showcase

aug28c

Necklace & Bracelet 

The delicate necklace sits really nicely along with the bracelet giving you those special touches to polish off this outfit ~ there are 2 ways you can buy the jewelry as a separate purchase or you can get the entire set dress & jewels for one low price ~ pretty amazing deal that was very creative thinking on the designer’s part ~ sometimes you just do not want the added burden in thinking how to accessorize a dress and this looks absolutely perfect with it ~ or if you are more creative than I am buy the dress alone without the jewels and use your own creativity to accessorize ~ either way that choice is yours…

Sadly August is almost over as well as summer am semi sad that fall is approaching but I do love that crisp autumn weather ~ just a not so gentle reminder that YOU want any of the items that are at Designer Showcase now is the time to act on it and hurry down by taking this RIDE to grab up all those designer goodies ~ thank you for taking time to read mine and Dena’s blog as we both appreciate that a lot ~ till next time Hugzz and remember Life is too short to hate!

Summer in the City….

Another song just ran into my brain while I was at Paradise City ~ am sure you can’t guess and maybe you won’t even recognize the tune…its an oldie but goody courtesy of the “Lovin Spoonful” so have a read…

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it’s a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it’ll be alright

I still can remember the music as I singalong so out of key its good thing I followed my grams words and kept my day job cuz never a singer I would be ~ and maybe this hot extreme weather is making people go crazy as yesterday I ran into not 1 but three men that truly surprised me ~ and they were not noobs but men over the age of 3 should know better ~ demanding me to voice with them because EVERYONE voices on SL ~ NOT! and I choose who I voice with so to you Grimm333 sorry to offend you but will be a cold one for you…Secondly another dude name cannot remember who was 5 asked for money cuz of some lame excuse am like geeeeez ~ but the 3rd brought my faith back and just sent me a nice compliment…Anyway on to this simply stunning summer creation from Loovus at Designer Showcase this month ~ the city might be down and dirty but this dress will make you stand out …

aug27a

Vlerke Dress ~ Limpet

The design of this dress is fantastic ~ from the ruffles that are wide on each side and hang down below the hem…

aug27b

Back View 

To the shoulders that takes the ruffles again and brings it down the back giving such nice lines for your body ~ again hanging below the hem of the dress ~ just so soft making this dress a stand out within this grimy city…

aug27c

Vlerke ~ Lilac 

Another soft color choice which there are 5 different ones including the two that I have shown you here ~ as for the fit the designer has given you plenty of choices on that as well along with a demo to try for sizing ~ price is reasonable and again I just love the softness of the dress and how it looks on ~ don’t you agree ~ Well if you do please take this RIDE to grab it as Designer Showcase is winding down and you will be disappointed if you did not get it at this great price…BTW along my travels in Paradise City was some great photo ops for those that are always looking for a place to take some pics…LM will be in Credits ~ please let me thank Vikeejeah Xevion creator/designer of [Loovus] for allowing me to show off these fantastic dresses ~ also I need to thank Aisha Convair for keeping me on the Designer Showcase blogging team ~ to my readers, followers and supporters also my huge appreciation for taking time to read, like and send me comments ~ till next time hugzz and please remember Life is too short to hate ~

Blue Skies…

Yes after yesterday when my entire day was spent well not at my computer and I will not go into details just say lousy barely described how I felt but today I am feeling grreat and these words just hit me ~ rather these lyrics ~

Blue skies smilin’ at me
Nothin’ but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singin’ a song
Nothin’ but bluebirds all day long
Never saw the sun shinin’ so bright
Never saw things goin’ so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you’re in love, my how they fly
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin’ but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin’ at me
Nothin’ but blue skies do I see
Being sick is no fun especially tummy issues ~ just guess you deal with them and then when it passes you celebrate feeling human again LOL …first I love to show you with my newest kitty “Bancroft” who is really so handsome and adorable…
Aug26a

Bancroft & Me 

He is a handsome fella as he loves being held and looks good while I show off this outfit that is at Designer Showcase this month ~ and reminding you that time is winding down for this month, which would hate to see you miss out on all these exclusives…especially this is such a great deal from Finale Couture ~

Aug26b

Acadia Dress ~ Finale Couture 

Light as the clouds today is how am feeling ~ and you can really see how this dress looks ~ see the hem with the fringe detail ~ really sets this off and the color choices you will have are 11 different ones ~ the one am wearing is called Bali Blue ~ the designer has included a gorgeous necklace along with a pair of strappy heels that am in love with…

Aug26bb

Necklace that is included 

I love the color coordination of the necklace with the dress but I also love the fact you can use it with other outfits if you wish ~ for me how it sits is so perfect and really is a lovely accessory for this dress ~ not too clunky but actually the necklace itself does look a little delicate with the nice slender chain ~

Aug26c

Back view of dress

Again I do like designers that are just as creative with the back of an outfit like this ~ giving you a very sexy look from behind…now let me show you these gorgeous shoes

Aug26d

Gorgeous Heels 

Really love how delicate your foot looks wrapped in these heels that are for Slink High and always the feet are not included ~ they do come with each dress along with the necklace as both will be color matching ~ thank you to the designer/creator of Finale Couture for giving me this opportunity to show off this exclusive for Designer Showcase…need a ride well just click HERE to be whisked away ~ thank you always to those that take time to read, like and comment on my blog posts it is always so appreciated…hugzz till next time and please remember life is too short to hate…

Traveling …..

Yes am back traveling down this road on a friends private residence as I wanted to show off this gorgeous gown from Legendaire ~ from the colors in the Hud that you are given to choose from to how it looks as you walk and move to how it just feels so silky on ~ let me show you this simply stunning summer gown ~

Aug24a

Chiara Gown & Heels 

The bold splash of color infused into that pattern really makes a statement that when you put this on you are no longer some wall flower but a very independent woman that knows what she wants…The designer has added that crisscross belt on the empire waist that on the hud gives you 4 choices of color to change the belt…

Aug24b

Chiara Back View

I do love the crisscrossing of the straps in the back showing off as some men do love a nice back ~ also it is very body hugging so no extra desserts when you are wearing this so to keep the curves right in the exact place they should be ~ *winks* but hey who am I kidding this is SL you can eat whatever and still not gain one single ounce ~ is that pure heaven or what…

Aug24d

Another texture choice

From the bold to the sparkly you will adore each of the 4 patterns she has included in this Hud ~ simply all are faves of mine as I am sure they will be of yours…along with the heels that she has included too ~ As most of you know I am a Maitreya wearer and this fit is divine ~ any questions on fit I always suggest to try on demo’s just to be sure one that you like it and secondly that it fits your body…

Aug24e

Heels ~ Slink High 

These shoes really I do love the nice stiletto heel and love the thin straps that wrap your ankle around gently ~ also the peep toe that you can show off your latest pedi ~ making this entire outfit a keeper for me ~ Sound enticing to you as well then take this TAXI to Legendaire’s and look for this gorgeous gown to become an addition in your closet…

That is it for today but don’t despair will be back tomorrow as well as Dena with her segment also ~ thank you for taking time to read, like and share with others ~ always it is very appreciated ~ hugzz and remember Life is too short to hate…

Dena has some News….

Hi everyone am back and like the title says I have some news to share with each of you ~ while Starr has her events to blog I have been honored to become a member of a blogging team as well ~ YAY me!!!  The Store or rather Stores that is giving me that honor is a combination of clothes La Gazza Ladra and their shoe store Basta! ~ now you will have the pleasure of seeing some of their fabulous clothes and shoes ~ so huge thank you goes out to bomboloni.freschi for giving me this opportunity ~ Today the outfit I will be showing off for you part of it also comes from the event On9 which we all know is a monthly event but the uniqueness of this is that one item from each designer is discounted ~ is that cool or what but most will not tell you what color, which one you will have to inspect each one and some have a really discounted price…this dress is no exception to that as there is one color in the collection that is priced lower ~ only hint is its not the colors am showing you *giggling..

FirstBlog1

Sulky Ride ~ La Gazza Ladra 

This very cute drop waist dress is called “Sulky Ride” is being featured at On9 for this month till end of August ~  ~ you can see how this looks on me and I am wearing Maitreya ~ the floaty hem does give it a soft and sexy look ~ with the lower v-neckline and the plunging one in the back it does show off a nice amount of skin but still keeping with the modesty issues that some might have…

FirstBlog2

Sulky Ride ~ Taupe 

As you can see the pattern used in this dress is very subtle with added lace frill to the bottom of the skirt…100% mesh and comes in standard Mesh sizes but if you are concerned please take the demo before you buy…Again I have shown you 2 of the colors but there are 12 total colors to choose from and ONE of those is discounted ~ yes am so bad for not telling you which one but hey hint ~ think fruit *giggling…Now let me show you the shoes that I paired these up with please ~

FirstBlog3

Just Summer ~ Basta! 

This sandals are gorgeous are they not?  Fit for Slink flat or Maitreya feet, which I will again remind you the feet are not included ~ The pattern across the front portions of the sandals is made of snake skin with the rest of the shoe being a solid color, there is a slight wedge to the heel in order to add a little bit of height and they are so comfortable to wear….You have the the option of either wearing the shoes with a silver or gold trim to the beads,or as I am wearing the silver ones….. The lace adds to the detailing on these sandals and ties around the ankle in a perfect bow…With a variety of colors to choose from you will have a hard time deciding which to pick ~ the color I am wearing is called “Lake” ~ These gorgeous sandals are available at the MAIN STORE and are not part of the On9 Event so you are not disappointed if you go there and do not see them…

I will be back with another blog post of “In My Closet” and more clothes & shoes from my newest Sponsors La Gazza Ladra & BASTA! so please stick around and again my thanks to bomboloni.freschi for this opportunity and always to those who do read our blog posts…oh yes and to Starr Ghost for making me look so good in the pics…till next time hugs ~ Dena

Back to Designer Showcase

Yes am back to show off 3 summery and very pretty dresses from 3 very creative designers that are at Designer Showcase for this month ~ and remember time is running out to grab these up ~ let me just entice you more with these looks along with some cute sandals…

PrettyThing

Pretty Things ~ “Elle Dress”

Pretty Things has this really cute summery dress called “Elle” that I love the bare shoulders with the halter style neckline and the belt that just cinches in the waist ~ Designer always creative has included a Hud of 20 different color choices and also 4 different colors for the belt ~ 100% mesh with standard sizes along with sizes for Mesh Bodies ~ concerned well don’t be as there is a demo for you to try ~

Prisma1

Prism ~ Nala Dress

Oooh la la ~ don’t want any tan lines showing on this dress by Prism called “Nala”~ nor will you really be wearing very much underneath ~ what a perfect outfit to go dancing or clubbin in ~ you will be a true standout making everyone drool with jealousy as you walk in the door ~ Creator also has a nice Hud with 4 different color options ~ and the texture is pure raw silk so YOU just know how that is gonna feel laying across your body ….Need I say more as this dress is just pure sexy…hubby will give it 2 thumbs up🙂

Snowpaw1a

Snowpaws ~ Segalle

Last but never least is Snowpaws Segalle Dress  that I am in love with the fabric and textures of this halter dress ~ little side split to show some more skin is just another perfect summertime outfit that can be worn clubbing, lunching with friends or just having friends over for that sunset cocktail hour ~ this is just one of 6 options you have to choose from as each dress will be purchased separately ~

KCShoe1

KC Couture ~ Okichi Sandals

These comfy sandals that KC Couture is offering will look well with any of the above 3 dresses if you so choose ~ and this should fit any style foot you have but if you are concerned there is a demo for you to try…The Hud has so many options from colors of the straps, sole, back, etc to the type of metal studs or even no studs ~ giving you such a great range this could be your go to sandal…

I know summer is still hot and humid where I am and hey this is SL so those dresses will not go out of style no matter what the weather is ~ plus you just might be from down under where the temps are just starting to get a slight warm-up ~ no matter where you are from just remember deadline is coming quick only 8 more days and then poof it is gone till next month ~ always hard to find a dress that you really want at times when they are at these events ~ here is your TAXI to Designer Showcase ~ enjoy and look around ~ again thank you to those designers like Snowpaws, KC Couture, Prism and Pretty Things that give me opportunities to showcase their items…and always to my followers I appreciate each one of you that take time out to read, like and at times send me a comment…hugzz and hey remember life is just too short to hate…..cya
