Boho Berkeley Dress from Kaliko

Kaliope Kara's has created a cute new denim dress with 2 skirt options! A cute babydoll option and a sexy mini dress look.

I am the one on the left by the way.

This weekend her Brick color option is being offered at 60L. Other colors are at regular price of 200L and include; Plum, Forest, Brown and Rose. Each a slightly different pattern.

With the shape of the babydoll dress, she has also included an alpha to hid the hips and butt so they don't stick out. Also, she kept in mind that some have viewers that only support 1 alpha, so a second alpha was done to include the hip/butt and the feet for those who would like to wear sandals that include prim feet.

In the picture we are both wearing these cute brown sandals from J's. They can be found on the SL Marketplace

If you have any questions about other items worn in the picture, please feel free to IM Persephone Paine In World.

60L Weekends begin today (Friday) at 6 PM SLT and she usually leaves the vendor up until Monday Morning.

Be sure to check out Berkely and other great outfits at KaliKo!

M.O.C.K-ing Is Not a Bad Thing!

You have to love the tattoo layer. It opens up so many more avenues when it comes to skin and hair and more. I have been part of the M.O.C.K cosmetic group for a few months now. Mocksoup Graves does charge a small fee to join, but her generosity of gifts makes it more then worth it.

Today in Group Chat she mentioned that she has a couple of eyelash tattoos. In the 4 years in SL I have worn prim lashes, but adjusting them is so time consuming if you want to have a different lash look.

I immediately TP'd over to the store to check them out.

Currently she has 2 styles, Pandora and Victorina. Each has a Noir and one that you can tint. I have featured them on my Gala Skin (Yum- Sundust Light - Cranberry)

Here is the Before, I am wearing an alpha to hide my system lashes and you can see that there is a more natural looking lash on the skin itself.




So if you would like to check out these lashes or her other great skins and make-ups just Click Here for M.O.C.K Cosmetics!

New Addition for KaliKo 21! Dottie Mae

Ok so I am blatantly promoting my BFF's store. Especially since she used me as the model. This is the latest in her KaliKo 21 line. The dress is called Dottie Mae. I love that she doesn't make the glitch pants actual pants so you have the option of wearing pretty panties underneath. There will be more to come. She also participates in 60L weekends.

Click Here to Visit KaliKo!

My fellow blogger Nivaya Barbosa pointed out that this would also make cute retro lingerie. I have also paired it together with Jeans or Capris. So its quite versatile.

Shakespeare Beware!

"Out, damn'd spot! out, I say!"

If Lady Macbeth lived in Second Life today she would never curse this creation by Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry! Trust me when I say, this is no ordinary spot!

Out Damned Spot! is a sharp and edgy design from Belle Roussel, owner and creator Chop Zuey. The brushed silver collar necklace is set with black moonstones with large black crystal balls dangling from the bottom edge. A smaller version of the collar graces the wrist in bracelet form while geometric shaped brushed silver earrings include a single dangling black crystal.
Belle Roussel inspired me to step outside my comfort zone and present Out Damned Spot! wrapped in a haute couture ribbon of sorts. A quite Grave wrapping, too! I have always wanted to go shopping at Graves Leather/Latex/Metal and now this gave me the perfect excuse. Savage, the strappy design from Graves, jumped up a screamed 'Take me home'. How could I resist?

No ordinary shoes would do to finish off this outfit, so I found Raptor, my favorite pair of Mea Culpa shoes. An exclusive skin from sYs and one of Miamai hair pieces and I am transformed. Thank you Belle!

Out Damned Spot! does not need Shakespeare to speak its praises, for it takes center stage all on its own.

KaliKo Celebrates the 4th of July

My friend Kaliope Karas saw a need and has been working to fill it. For those that like to roleplay in Victorian or Wild West sims there seemed to be a lack of simple, well constructed day dresses. Her latest is her Summer Day Series, her colors are based on flowers. Below see her Rose and Sunflower and Carnation. Call me lazy, but I just had her send her advert copy since she did such a lovely job on them. Her gowns are pretty similar, but she has improved on it and added more pattern options. Gowns come with 3 top styles with Jacket and Shirt layers and the skirt comes with or without the Apron, I look foward to see what more she has in store.

Plus in honor of the Independence day she has created this cute patriotic version of the dress. Currently on sale for only 50L!
KaliKo has shops set up in the Deadwood 1876 Sim and the Idaho Sim (2nd floor of Merchant Area). However the easiest way to view and purchase her items is the Second Life Marketplace. Just click here for KaliKo!

Hair in Pictures Nicola from Truth in Dawn and Jessica in Light Blonde by Amacci.

Both models are wearing the Helen Skin from Amacci.

Other colors available for gowns include, Morning Glory, Lavender, and soon, she will have Forest (Green), Weeds (Black), Gentian (pale green with purple trim) and Pansy (Purple)

How Many Frogs Must I Kiss?

Once upon a time, in a land called Stance, there lived a Fashion Princess. In this land of poses and props the Fashion Princess found a lonely frog surrounded by a dense forest, seated upon a rock.

Sad and lonely herself, the Fashion Princess sat down beside the frog and they began to talk. The frog praised her beauty and grace, exclaiming she was the fairest in the Kingdom. The Fashion Princess smiled and said that her soft and silky skin shone because of the hard working people of Glam Affair. The artistry of her hair was woven by Tukinowaguma. And her eyelashes were shaped and molded by [ glow ] studio. The small frog croaked his approval.

The frog's eyes moved over her enticing dress and leered at the tight fitting bodice, revealing skirt and exotic shoes. The Fashion Princess proudly announced her dress was hand stitched by the famous eXxEsS couturier and her shoes shaped upon her feet by Sim I Lar Italian Footwear.

Finally, the lonely frog begged for a kiss from the Fashion Princess. Moved to pity by the frog's forlorn and poignant pleas, the Fashion Princess lifted the sad frog from the rock and brought him to her lips.

Has the Fashion Princess found her true Prince or must she kiss frog after frog before finding true love? There is one pose left that only her Prince can share.

Apocalypse Now

For all anti-Valentine prone fashionistas, may I present my version of Cupid. Beware this Cupid's arrows, for they do not bring tidings of love.

In the post-Apocalyptic world of The Wasteland, Cupid does not search for love, but survival. While there I barely escaped alive when confronted by a Ghoul. If you enjoy an extraordinary roleplay experience, check out The Wasteland.

The Wasteland is an incredibly detailed and conceived themed SIM. It is worth the time to check out this SIM just for the amazing landscaping. Take your time and really look around. There is a great deal to see and sections of the SIMs change in appearance. While you are there, look into some roleplay.

For more information about the SIM and characters, go to

Watch out for hungry Ghouls!

I Give You My Heart

From that first moment, you held my heart in your hands. It beat only while you breathed life into it.

A woman's heart is the strongest, yet most fragile gift given. It should never be taken for granted, nor pushed aside when it is inconvenient to hold with kindness. It holds a priceless treasure that can never be stolen from loving hands, but can only be thrown carelessly away.

It will care and defend the one it loves, but wither away when ignored. It has infinite capacity to care for many, but room for only one true love.

A heart is to be treasured and never thrown away. It should only be given to one who is worthy and will spend the rest of their days protecting it.

St. Valentine's Day is not meant for candy, flowers or cards, but for an expression of caring and support for those who have touched your heart and soul. Whether they be child or parent, friend or co-worker, lover or companion; tell them just how much they mean to you. Never wait for one day a year, but say it every day.

Most importantly, tell yourself how special you are. You deserve it!

Happy Valentine's Day to all.

Lucky Me at Tres Beau!

How can life get any better? Today I received an absolutely gorgeous red dress named 'Valentine' from Tres Beau. Kimmera Madison is one of my favorite Second Life designers, always giving us stylish, chic and unique clothing.

'Valentine' has a combination of an open front skirt and ruffled ballgown train that creates a formal look while showing off a woman's shapely legs. The corset bodice has an elegant and intricate design with a daringly low cut back. Red, opera length gloves with matching ruffled prims are the perfect accent.

You would think all that would make this the perfect Valentine dress, but I haven't mentioned the best part. It was free! Kimmera Madison has the 'Valentine' dress on the lucky chair in her store! Run, do not walk, to Tres Beau as quickly as possible before this breath-taking dress disappears from the Lucky Chair.

And while you are waiting for your letter to appear, look around the store and pick up one or two of Kimmera's other amazing creations. If you are like me, you will want everything you see.

The Invitation Said Black Tie

I will admit I LOVE formal wear of all kinds. So much so I have lost count of all the evening and ball gowns I own. Then I found 'Le Smoking' at SF Design, I could not help but grab it on sight!

Several years ago, not going to say exactly how many, my nephew asked me to be a part of his wedding by decorating the reception hall and greetings guests as they entered. It w
as wintertime and I really did not want to run around in a dress in a state where 30◦ wind chill factor is commonplace. When I finally resigned myself to freezing to death for the sake of family, I walked into a high end store and was amazed to find a woman's tuxedo.

swaffette Firefly, owner and designer of SF Design, created this amazing and stylish Yves St Laurent tribute for women.
Don't be fooled by the fact that 'Le Smoking' is a tuxedo, because femininity does not suffer in the least. To prove that, I was invited to dance several times during the photo shoot. One gentleman said he thought a woman in a tuxedo was incredibly sexy.

'Le Smoking' is a perfectly tailored tuxedo that accentuates a woman's figure. The black flexi jacket has an amazing texture of a crushed velvet. The high necked dress shirt and cuffs are accented with white ruffles. The tuxedo pants are topped with the traditional cummerbund. Pr
im arms, shoulders and pant legs add that extra dimension and depth to the design. swaffette even added shoes in the Mary Jane style to complete the outfit.

Ladies, the next time you have to go to a formal event, go black tie thanks to SF Design.

Winter Wonderland

Early on a quiet winter's morning, as the snow falls softly blankets the first, you might just spy a nymph.

Chaospire's "Frost Fae" is a delightful fantasy costume for frolicking on the pale moon light. Covered from head to toe in snowflake lace, this coquettish outfit comes with snowflake wings.

If you are ready for some winter fun on the ice skating rink, stop by Tres Beau for "Snowflake'.

Fun and fashion combine in this ice blue skating costume. You will be dressed to the nines while doing figure eights on the ice.

For woolly warmth, Jador's "Igloo" in white will keep you toasty as you walk over snow covered hills.

White fur boots and fur edged cuffs and hood (can be worn up or down) blend into the landscape as your feet crunch across the new fallen snow.

Memories of the Nutcracker and Sugar Plums dancing come to mind when I wear "Willo O' The Wisp" from Evie's Closet.

Ragged silk and delicate wings grace this soft creation. Dance across a blanket of white as smoothly as a swan.

Winter cannot stop a trip to the mall for the latest fashions.

Available in different colors, here you see Indyra's "Republica Jacket" in white rabbit and trimmed with black leather covering a cropped black sweater from Callie Cline. The black "Elba" pants from DeLa have an amazing snakeskin texture.

Last, but far from least, is the dazzling gown "Snowflake" from Son!a.

Whether for a Snow Queen or Winter bride, you found the perfect choice.

Celebrate Winter in your favorite way, whether before a roaring fire or or enjoying the crisp bite of frosty air.
