Sweet Escape

Hey loves! We’re at the top of the work week and it’s looking to be pretty sweet already. So I’m bringing to you this gorgeous dress, Solis that I picked up from Artizana. This is a very stylish dress with circular cutout detailing that I personally haven’t seen any other designer do before. That makes for a very unique look to me which is nice to see with applier clothing. The circular detailing is strategically placed all over the dress to showcase a little bit of skin here and there. Now, that sexy thigh split on the other hand is seriously HAWT! I absolutely love the mile high split on the side…it really helps to complete the look of this dress. The craftsmanship of Solis is well made as well. The seams line up perfectly, there’s added texture to the dress along with realistic creases/wrinkles to make it look realistic. You can tell the designer actually took time creating this which is always nice to see.

The only tiny remark I have against this dress is that the sleeve is supposed to slightly drape over your hands but they won’t if you don’t have the Slink Physique body.  While the designer did create an applier for the major mesh bodies (I wear Maitreya Lara), there aren’t any appliers just for Slink hands so the sleeves will stop where your Slink hands begin. And to be honest, that is such a minor issue for me personally but I did want to inform you guys so you wouldn’t be disappointed. I would still highly recommend purchasing the dress because as you can see, Solis is still very much worth it. Also, if the hands/sleeves irk your nerves that bad, you can simply add a chunky bracelet to cover those areas like shown below.

Hey my beautiful ones! I’ll start with this dress from UBR (U’ve Been Randomized) which is an oldie but goodie. In my humble opinion, Ms. Nirvana is a master at creating sexy dresses and My MoxXxie is no different. The quality of this dress is on point. Seams line up perfectly, cotton texture with added high/low lights and the design itself…LOVE IT! I’ve paired this sexy dress with a pair of heels from Moda (run, fly or w/e to take advantage of the 99L promotion inworld and on marketplace). I also added a few accessories from Mandala (a lot of dope items) and Just Magnetized to finish off the look. Oh how could I forget?!?! These new eyes I’m wearing (which are now a new staple for me) are from Nar Mattaru. I fell in love with these eyes the moment I put them on. They’re called Just Basic but hunni, they are far from that. These are the most realistic eyes I’ve come across ever in this game AND they are reasonably priced! If you are about high quality items for your avatar you simply must pick up the fat pack. These are by far the best crafted eyes on the grid in my opinion.

Welcome to Jamrock

Hey beautiful people! I’ve been all around the grid today and found time to push out another look for you. I was over at Besom/Soonsiki’s and these dreads with the large headband caught my eye. Totem is resizable (which is a plus) and the headband comes with 10 color options! I’ve also been waiting to find the right top to pair with these live jeans I got from Pixicat. What you see below is the end result and I hope you guys enjoy the look. As always, thank you for supporting my blog.

Hello beautiful people! This past week was pretty freaking awesome when it comes to fashion events around the grid and boy did I shop til I dropped…literally LOL. I fell asleep a few times while up super late shopping for the perfect pieces to put this look together for you. Can I just say that the Mahi Gladiator Sandals from Reign are EVERYTHING?!?! I absolutely love the tri-color metal bead detailing. These sandals along with the Tropical Dress from Pixicat really gave off a late 60’s or flower child vibe to me so I ran with the theme. I really enjoyed piecing this look together and I hope you enjoy it as well. Happy shopping loves!
