LOTD #274 – Working Girl

genre-burlesque

Her smile didn’t reach her eyes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This look was inspired by the Burlesque round at Genre.  Burlesque is one of my favorite things and I think I bought one of everything there!

Tons of corsets and lovely vintage furniture – including this fabulous bar set.  I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it – it’s so versatile.

Genre is almost over (the new round will start on the 15th), so make sure you head on over and pick up the amazing burlesque goodies before they disappear!

Beauty, Beware – LOTD #263

LOTD 263

Her glacial blue eyes seemed to bore into his soul.

“Would you like a drink?” she asked, gesturing towards the cups on the table.

He swallowed audibly. “Thank you, milady,” he said.

Her smile did not reach her eyes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After finally finding time to do some unpacking and organizing, I came across this fantastic gown from Purple Moon, which I picked up at the last round of Enchantment (I think).

I’ve been a fan of Purple Moon forever, and it is a fabulous.  Poulet is extremely generous with her group gifts and it’s well worth the group slot. 😀

I’m sporting my new Tuli skin, which I bought at this year’s Skin Fair.  I love all the brow options (which I didn’t have with my previous skin), and it came with appliers included (a huge savings!) and tons of makeup layers.

The jewelry is from Glitzz, which is fast becoming one of my go-to stores when it comes to costuming.  She has a ton of fabulous lingerie and lots of other items – jewelry, headpieces, and more. 🙂

Amacci is a new-to-me hair store, but I love this elegant updo.  I’m always looking for great hair, so I will definitely be checking out their other designs.

The cups and table in the photo are from Black Tulip, and available at this round of Genre.  This month’s theme is ‘medieval’ and I think I bought out the round!

Fresh Air – LOTD #246

LOTD 246

She’d stepped out for air.

The ballroom was too stuffy.

She was smothering.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anachron has been a favorite store of mine for quite a while – there’s always something new and unexpected.

When I saw this Empire Dress at Genre, I couldn’t resist. Gorgeous colors and such a flattering silhouette.

I paired it with a fabulous updo from Vanity Hair, and added some fantastic jewelry pieces from It!

I knew I wanted a formal, gorgeous, fabulous, and elegant location for the shoot, so of course I headed straight for Angel Manor.

In the Cold – LOTD #245

LOTD 245
Her feet were freezing.

She had lost her shoes somewhere.

It was getting cold.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m taking advantage of some free time to do more sorting and boxing.  Imagine finding this gorgeous dress just languishing in your inventory!

From Les Encantades and out now at Genre, this beautiful ‘Louise’ dress comes in a variety of colors.  I couldn’t resist the blue. 😀

I wanted to take the picture with a background rather than green screen, and I wanted a lovely wintery look, so of course I headed over to Frisland.

A few pieces of jewelry, a nice elegant updo, and I was all set.  I think this is one of the few photos I’ve taken where I am without shoes.  *Gasp!*

If you like the look of the dress, hurry on over to Genre.  The theme this round is ‘Regency’ and all the items are $100L or less.  What a steal!

Regency Regal – LOTD #244

LOTD 244
She looked down at him,

disdain oozing from her pores.

He was beneath her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m so behind in all my sorting that I just found a folder of goodies I picked up at Genre this month.

The theme is ‘Regency’ and there are some great pieces, especially if you like Victoriana.

I don’t usually go for purple, but when I saw some of the items, I couldn’t resist.

This amazing gown is from Goth1c0.  The Antionette gown comes in a variety of colors and sizes, including a fitted version.

I paired it with these fabulous shoes from Avatar Bizarre.  They come with a color change HUD, so you can make them match any of the other fantastic items you might grab at Genre. 😀

The headpiece (the wispy white bits) is a gift from The Stringer Mausoleum at Genre.  I thought it went well with the hair from Exile.

The jewelry set is an Advent gift from Chop Zuey and it finishes off the outfit quite nicely.

I’m still digging and sorting and opening, so more LOTD’s will be headed your way.  😛

I was starting to have withdrawals, I hadn’t taken a LOTD picture in so long. 😦

There have been so many events and hunts lately that I was getting overwhelmed.

A ton of stuff, and no time to open it all!

Purple Moon is having another Halloween hunt, and I just love her designs, so I rushed right over to do it.

Lots of wonderful goodies, and not everything is orange, so yay! 😛

I also stopped off at the current round of Genre, which is urban-themed.

I had a few moments to myself to open boxes and sort through things today, so I did.

And the Lelutka heads were just updated to include expressions, so I had to try them out.

The hair is a freebie find from Lelutka – it’s in the mainstore in the hair section (obviously), and it says demo, but it’s wearable (no giant sign above your head) and it comes with all the color HUDs so you can make it any color you want.

The jacket, pants, and adorable purse are from the Purple Moon Halloween hunt.

I went to the Boho Culture fair and picked up this great jewelry set from Elysium (it was either free or $1L – I can’t remember which).

The fabulous boots are from N Core, currently out at Kustom9.

You can change them via HUD to be ankle, knee, or thigh high boots – so versatile!

The pose is a free gift from addme at The Seasons Story.

The great grungy backdrop and barrels are from Circa Living, currently out at Genre.

I picked up a couple of these ‘photoscenes’ from Circa – inexpensive and so terrific for backgrounds in photos. 🙂

I still have a ton more things to open, so I will be working on more LOTD pics soon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another dark and twisted LOTD post. 😛

I love this French Maid costume from Livid.

It comes with the dress, feather duster, collar, headband, shoes, stockings – all of it.

I happened to be wearing this hair from D!va when I tried on the costume, and I thought it was perfect.

While out shopping for FLF, I happened upon this cute gothic Halloween decor set from Funky Junk.

I know I will get a lot of use out of these items.

The doll skin tattoo I picked up at the current round of Genre – I can’t believe I didn’t have one of these before!

I found the bloody body under the rug hiding in my inventory. 😀

I’m not sure if I’m just getting into the Halloween spirit, or if the Twisted Hunt has rubbed off on me.

Dark is fun, but I think I’m ready for something a little lighter next time.

We shall see. 😛

Hell Hath No Fury – LOTD #217

“How dare you?” she hissed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have gotten behind on my blogging – I’ve been so busy shopping and picking up all the goodies that my inventory is overflowing!

I recently completed the Twisted Hunt.

I’d never heard of it before, and since it’s billed as ‘the hardest hunt in SL,’ I thought I’d give it a try.

It actually wasn’t as hard as I had thought, though I did not complete the endgame.

I made it to about stop #5, and then couldn’t figure out how to reach the item I needed to get the next step.

With so many other things on my plate, I decided to forgo the endgame this year.

But I did manage to pick up a ton of cool free stuff! 😀

The hunt is a $0L hunt, and this year’s theme is ‘Qi,’ with all the gifts in black and white.

When I tried on this sorceress dress from TLG, I knew immediately I wanted to use the amazing prop from Black Tulip.

I love the checkerboard floor, though I opted not to use the built-in poses.

I don’t remember exactly how much it cost, but I know it was $100L or less, because it’s currently out at Genre.

You should drop by Genre if you haven’t already – the current theme is ‘The Twilight Zone,’ and there is some simply fantastic items.

The earrings and nose ring from Arcadia and the Nevermore heels from Lassitude & Ennui completed my look.

I added a few props – the wall hanging from Anachron, the crystal ball stand, and the torches and fairie lights.

I used the AnyPose Expression HUD to give myself an ‘angry’ face – it’s first time I’ve used it for photos.

Vanity Hair was having a 50% sale and I took advantage to pick up a few vintage hairstyles, including this bob.

If you’d like to give the Twisted Hunt a try, it runs until October 19.

Good luck!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Genre and My Attic @ The Deck are two of my favorite events, and I am loving all the goodies from the current rounds.

First, the decor piece from Genre – I LOVE LOVE LOVE these animated storm frames from Paper Moon!

There are three different ones, and they are all amazing.

Collabor88 had these other fab pieces from Floorplan and Second Spaces.

Floorplan has been a favorite store for a long while, and this cross is an example of why.

I also love the hall stand from Second Spaces – it’s such a versatile piece.

The outfit is all from My Attic – and fantastic pieces they are!

The top and pants are from The Annex, and they are adorable.

Choose from lots of different colors so you can mix/match to your own personal style.

The shoes from Bushu are amazing, and come in a variety of colors as well.

I’m loving this skin from Lumae so much I haven’t taken it off yet. 😀

And I’m all attitude with this pose from Ma Vie, also found at My Attic.

This round of My Attic closes soon (September 30), so don’t miss out on all the goodies!

Genre and Collabor88 will be open for a while yet, but you should definitely check them out as well.

Happy shopping!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have so many black items in my inventory.

I try to buy other colors, but black goes with everything!

This LOTD is another one of those things that just fell together.

I was at On9 and found this great hair from EMO-tions.

It’s not my usual style, but that’s why I love it.

After shopping at On9, I got a notice about a new group gift at Pure Poison.

Their group gifts are usually a free pull on a group only gacha machine.

The last two times I have been super lucky and gotten the rare item with my free pull.

This time I got these fabulous Leila heels.

Then I headed over to Genre – their latest round is themed around ‘The Twilight Zone.’

I found these terrific hand lights from Cute Poison there and I instantly knew I wanted to use them in a photo.

Then I started looking around in my inventory to see what else I could pull together.

I found these great white jeans by Rebel Hope and this cute top by Purple Moon.

I added this pentagram necklace from Yummy I picked up earlier at Collabor88.

I had a lot of fun playing around with the hands and the lighting on this one.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
