All the Colours

This picture has taken me forever to take, the outfit was perfect but getting a photo that did it justice was hard!

The dress is a previous Zodiac item from Adore & Abhor which is still available, the rainbow version is an exclusive VIP gift. The blended colours are stunning and it fits like a dream, the bottom has a bit of a badonkadonk but creates perfect pear curves!

I teamed it with this beautiful necklace from [glow] which I got from The Arcade and also the Clawtooth hair from The Arcade

She gracefully descended to the ball room, the gentle lighting highlighted her beautiful jewels the draped elegantly around her collar bone.
Batting her smoky lashes she scanned through the myriad of dancers looking for the tall, gainly gentleman whose hand met hers the evening before. His smile had made her heart flutter inside her chest like it hadn't done in many years.

Unable to notice him amongst the revelers she lightly stepped away from the ornate, gilt staircase and smoothed down her expensive satin dress, ready to wait.
The eyes of many rich and handsome men met hers, offered their hands to take a turn on the floor with her but politely declining she waited.

The band struck up a beautiful, gentle, soft tune. She knew that this was the penultimate song and she sighed gently, lowering her eyes to the parquet flooring. Readying herself to ascend the stairs alone she felt a touch on her shoulder, she whirled around. Laughing eyes met hers and her beautiful face shone as he took her hand in his own and took her to dance.


The dress is another stunning piece by 22769 which is a new "materials" dress, like Mesh however when the viewers update it will have wrinkles, folds and will shimmer like silk. I, for one, cannot wait to see this!

However I had a good look through the Disneybound tumblr and Googled Vanellope and went from there!

I accessorised my outfit with a charm bracelet from The Arcade, it's from Noodles (Natalee Oodles of Style Minions who is as equally Disney obsessed as I) The charms I have are Floating lights (gold) magical ncoach (gold - rare) and under the starfish (gold). I also have fate bow (silver) and reflection hair pin (silver). I have extras, I'll be writing up my tarde list soon cos I kinda went Disney overboard at the Oodles gatchas!

Then and Now

Having a bit of a sort through my inventory and I'm coming across real gems that I haven't blogged

Like this bikini that I'm wearing as a bralet from Adore and Abhor, the pattern is so bold and fashionable right now, I teamed it with Tee*fy's skirt that they have out now for Fifty Linden Friday

This beautiful statement necklace and earrings set is by Maxi Gossamer from last year's The Accessories Hunt, I'm not sure if it's still available but I think they were selling it with different colour variations.

Summer Beach

To feel the lapping
of the summer surf
the most wonderful thing
on God's green earth

These beautiful eyes are the group gift from Ikon, they're only available for the first 7 days of the month so you best hurry and get them.
I don't usually favour photo realistic eyes because I never thought they matched the cartoony look of SL skin, however this set is growing on me.
Thankfully they have a nice greenish hue which is my usual colour of choice.

I've been finding it difficult to find lipsticks or gloss that look good on my av, without making me look like I have a trout pout.
The lip stain I'm wearing is from (Ag), it doesn't cover my skin's lips and still looks quite a natural shade.

Disneybound - Mad Hatter

No wonder you're late.
Why this watch is exactly two days slow.
- Mad Hatter, Alice in Wonderland

The book and classic Disney movie "Alice in Wonderland" is a classic in so many respects.
My family home is around the corner from the birthplace of Charles Dodgeson (Lewis Carrol) based on a tall tale told on the Isis to the Other Alice. The tale he told to Alice and her sisters became a respected, world renowned book.

Within Second Life there's always going to be some form of drama, controversy or whatever. (See the most recent SL secrets as proof!)

Because of this it can be incredibly difficult to portray what you're not without causing someone offence. For example, this beautiful saree warrants, in my opinion, Eastern jewellery.
I would love to wear a bindi, jhoomer or a matha-patti but because I'm so afraid of treading on people's toes I'm too reluctant to experiment,
I don't know all the connotations and background of each piece and it's not nice to have to worry about being criticised if I did choose to wear them.

I could do research and I could ask more knowledgeable friends for advice but I don't want to detract from the fun of blogging and the fun of putting an outfit together that I feel comfortable in.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticising or chastising people for having pride in their heritage and knowledge, I'm just asking for lenience. I'm also not picking on people of Eastern heritage, it's just gorgeous saree I picked to blog!

Thankfully not many people read my blog so hopefully I won't cause too much offence by voicing my opinion.

All I'm trying to say is that people need to really lighten up. It's a virtual world and we just want to play dress-up!!

Lipstick @ Action - Lustre Lips in Cherry (Prev TDR Fusion)
Eyeliner @ Tuty - Audrey


That's what they called her.

In Venice, the beautiful city, the sinking city.
How would she have known that a masquerade would be formal? Black and white yes, but formal?
Straightening her tuxedo jacket she tottered away in the hope of a gondola spotting her.... yet this late in the afternoon in the backwater alleys she had to keep walking.

With a sigh she carried on, her head held high, and walked towards the Campanile de San Marco and prayed she remembered the winding route to her hotel.
She was sure it was around here somewhere...

This lovely tuxedo jacket (and dress) is a free group gift, I love the design of it and it teamed perfectly with the necklace I wanted to blog (also a cheapie).
A few points to make about the dress, however, be aware it only comes in three sizes, considering it's free there's no need to demo but it's disappointing if you really like it and it won't fit your shape.
Another point, the rigging is good however in certain poses my arms do poke through the sleeves and the padded shoulders aren't complimentary for the more energetic poses.

Disneybound - Mr. Smee

Oh dear dear Captain, shooting a man in the middle of his cadenza? That ain't good form, you know
- Mr. Smee, Peter Pan

This dress is PERFECT for Mr. Smee, it incorporates the stripes AND the red of his red hat, can't get any better!

Smee is such an underrated character, the sidekick of the baddie, who probably doesn't even want to be on the team in the first place but his mummy made him go play

Classic Mini

This dress really reminded me of the 60's, something you'd see Twiggy wear

The design is flawless and fits like a dream, the picture doesn't show the length but it's a classic mini design
