Feeling Sassy!

There's a great new pose shop in InWorldz called Posture Perfect that I'm just thrilled to share with you. Lydia Cremorne is the very talented creator of some fabulous poses that I hope you'll enjoy.  Drop by her shop to try them out.  She has a great selection of freebie poses as well.

I've been meaning to blog a few great items that I won at the Fashion Show at Paisean Faisean. Really, I had the hardest time getting anything to rez at the show, so I didn't get any good photos to blog about while there, but it was a great time getting to know some new people, and just being there to support all the hard-working designers that came together to put on the show.
As a fun little interlude, they held a Trivia contest and as prizes gave out some incredible gifts to the winners.  I got 4 questions correct and won some great new outfits!  I also won a 50 I'z gift certificate to Mer-Elf Creations.  Fun!

Here I am wearing the abso-freakin-adorable outfits by Sassy!  Up first is the Cutest Little Sweater, yes that's the name, I'm not making this up.  Pairing the Cutest Little Sweater in grey with the 2-tier sculpted skirt in pink.  What a beautiful job she did on both the sculpts and the belt textures!  There is a cute little white lace  layer that moves while you dance.  Just love that!
Same outfit, but black for the sweater and brick red for the skirt.  And then for a sizzling hot black bikini with the sheer tank option and stockings, the Wet n Wild set also from Sassy!

Also wanted to share with you the super-cute Venice Skinny Jeans and limited edition tattooed Chux, a group gift from Stellar. Worn here with the Sally Hair from Emotions, and the Cutest Little Sweater from Sassy! I feel like I should be riding a skateboard along Venice Beach.

It's not always what you wear on the outside, but the skin and poses that create the foundation for a great look.  Here, I'm wearing the ever dazzling Ethereal skin in Latte by Talia Fournier of Paparazzi and all poses are by Posture Perfect, now InWorldz.

I hope there's something here you like... happy shopping!

In Search of Spring

Around here, winter has been teasing us with hints of Spring to come. But I just can't wait!  That's one of the things I love about virtual worlds like InWorldz. You can just go, find it!
Whatever it is you're looking for, there's a good bet that some creative soul out there has already made it and is waiting for the intrepid explorer to come find and enjoy it.
That's why I'm so excited to share with you the beautiful Garden in Netheren created by Moontan Valeeva.  Come, explore with me...
It's a peaceful place, filled with birdsong, the sound of trickling water, and gorgeous riots of flowers to entice you along the pathway.
You might find yourself lured by the magical sound of harp song.
Or the sound of wind dancing through the waterfall as you climb the hill for a better view.
What's that I see in the distance... Castle Nether! Now that's something that begs to be explored another time!
All this exploring can be tiring, so be sure to find a nice place by the gazebo pool to gaze into the waters and rest, or take a nap.
Or find a new perspective of the beautiful surroundings.  You might even spy a few wild bunny rabbits scampering over the hills.
When you are done exploring, a boat waits upon the dock to carry you safely back home.
I hope you have enjoyed our little adventure in search of Spring! I do believe we've found it! Be sure to send a little messenger bird off to Moontan to tell her how much you enjoyed her garden!

Men in Masks

I don't know what it is about men in masks I find so irresistible.
Is it that they frame the eyes, the windows to the soul, so well, or that they tempt me with longing to reach out, and discover the delights of the flesh beneath it.

Whatever it is, it has me longing, luring me, breath catching, heart racing.... eagerly awaiting the Winter Masquerade at Equinox tonight (7PM InWorldz Time).

Will you be there?  How will I know it's you... beneath... the Mask.

A few great finds for the guys today.  The Silver Tie and Tails Tuxedo by SF Designs on the Isle of Darkmoon.  The Mysterious sculpted black Illusions Mask by Jeri Rahja of Designs by Rahja, and Emilio formal shoes by SF Designs.

Feathers and Flurry

Are you ready yet?  Equinox will be opening it's doors to welcome you to their very first Winter Masquerade Ball on Thursday, January 20th at 7:00pm (IWT).

Lucky us that have had all this extra time to search for the perfect gown or tux for the ball at Equinox.  And hair, and makeup and skin, oh and shoes, and masks, oh my!  All this shopping would be exhausting, if it were not so much fun.

In a flurry of dashing about the grid today, I managed to swing by M!raMode at Bellissima Square and saw that her latest group gift for January is there.  Oh Joy!  When I read her blog about the Plume gown, I knew I had to have it.  Something alluring about the way the feathers brush the floor softly as I move, and the mysterious glamour of it all.  I love it!
It's far more glamorous than I had imagined and I simply adore the details on the bodice and the feather accents on the chest.  The opera length gloves are beautiful! I have paired the gown with the lovely white feather mask from Rahja Designs, and the glowing beautiful skin is indeed the latest Ethereal skin in Latte by Paparazzi, freshly arrived in her store today.  The make-up layers for this skin will be coming soon, but the skin alone is so beautiful!

I'm waiting for you...  Come Dance with Me!
(Click for your Invitation.... See you there!)

Island Style

Taking a break from the winter scene and a much needed vacation to somewhere tropical.  While searching for the perfect beachwear, my friends Chrystophur Silversmith and Heart Smith recommended the talented designer, Nikki Romano, and her Island Style shop, and sent me on a shopping spree!

Here's what I found.  Feel the warm breeze, the scent of exotic flowers and coconuts. Come with me... to Island Style.

The first dress is the elegant and very stylish Maroon Hawaiian Gown, also known as the MuuMuu.  It comes with sculpted sleeves and a beautiful and delicate white sculpted Lei and makes you feel right at home in an Island Paradise.

Feel the sun on your shoulders in this amazing Blue and White Sarong set, with sculpted bikini top.

When you're ready to take a dip in the pool, the sarong set bikini and thong is just the thing you need.

I had to have the Orange and Fuschia Lei and paired it with the Brown and Pink bikini for a more festive Beach Party look.

Sauntering through Chrys and Heart's tropical paradise "The Dream" on Orky Island, wearing another great style from Island Style - the blue and white Hawaiian Short Dress, and wearing the Lei from the maroon gown, I feel as if I'm in a dream. The fluffy blue clouds drifting softly overhead, and the sound of a lighthouse nearby.

I feel so at peace here...

Heart and Chrys invited me to come stay with them at their extra guest house on their estate at The Dream on Orky Island!  I'm so excited!  I tried to get a better picture, but my graphic card is doing funny things and Heart's legs were invisible.. sorry Heart!  I really love my new home at the Dream and thank you so much for being my friends, and the best family I could ever have dreamed of.  I love you both!

If you have not been to Heart's studio and art gallery yet, you can find her at Picture Perfect on The Dream estate at Orky Island.  Please forgive my blurry picture.. I waited a good 20 minutes but my old dying graphic card just would not draw in all the textures and sculpts right.

I really wanted to show you the view with all the great waterfalls, but you'll just have to visit there yourself and go exploring!  It is truly an inspiring place where Heart works her photographic magic, and if you are looking for a new profile pic or some photography to suit your new business, or just want to treat yourself to a special photo shoot and see how fabulous you can look, please don't hesitate to contact Heart Smith for an appointment.  She is truly a delight to work with and I know you'll just love her, like I do.

May all your dreams be Island Style, and when you need photography done, think Picture Perfect.  You won't regret it.

Shine On!

I spent the last few days on the other side of the icy cold Sierra mountains, without a computer, so today after recovering from the harrowing slippery drive back, I have been catching up on what has been happening in InWorldz while I was gone. It's Wednesday and the last day to post something for the 5th Whiskey Challenge, so after reading some great posts from other InWorldz bloggers, I'm trying to think of something to share that hasn't already been said.

Week Five Challenge:  Since 2011 is mere moments away, it’s  natural to look back at last year and look forward to next. For our challenge, let’s do both. Choose your favorite post ofanother InWorldz blogger and post a link at your blog. Then post 5 (or more) predictions for InWorldz. The rules are yours to make- just have fun writing!

Predictions never really were my strong point.  I'm a "roll with it" kind of gal, so I don't usually hold out for wishing things were a certain way, or trying to guess where we'll go.  Part of that is the delight I have in watching our world of InWorldz evolve.  Watching new worlds, new cities, new malls, and forests and fantastical visions of people's creations come to life.  It's just Magical!

Of course, with any new virtual world, there are people and places that come and go, often slipping silently into the night, before we even realize they are gone.  One of the early places I blogged about, the City of Nephilim, is sadly one of these places that has just disappeared into thin air.  Another, is a truly profound and beautiful person named Ayla Holt, who has inspired and shared so much with the people of InWorldz.  She will be deeply missed by many.

When I joined InWorldz, I thought, ok this will be fun.  I can start over fresh, make a new "me", explore and meet some new people and just see where it goes.  Little did I know that joining InWorldz would be a catalyst to launching some of my own hidden dreams into reality.  It all started with a blog post by Whiskey Day that I had read about on the InWorldz Forums.  Little did she know how much her post would inspire the people of InWorldz!  If you haven't been watching and reading the new blogs and bloggers, you're missing out.  Take a look at the blog rolls on the side column of your favorite bloggers, and see what's happening in this big beautiful world of ours.

I had been reading Whiskey's blog and a few of the other InWorldz blogger pioneers for awhile, mostly learning about new places to explore, and of course new fashion to go buy and enjoy!  She was (and is) one of my favorite bloggers and I always admired her incredible style, witty personality, and her innate ability to inspire people.

After reading her very first InWorldz blogger challenge, I launched into action.  I dug up the dregs of my old fashion blogging fantasy that I had buried long ago when SL had lost the spark for me, and re-invented it.  I created a brand new blog, with the first post being my response to the Whiskey Challenge.  Next thing, I'm caught up in a whirlwind of meeting people and going places, and fabulous parties, and before I knew it, I was creating new fashions of my own and opening a shop at Equinox by Thanksgiving, only a few weeks after that first post.

All in all, it's been a huge success, and a journey that I am incredibly thankful for.  Which brings me to the next part of the Whiskey Challenge and my 5 predictions for the future in InWorldz.

1.  THE END OF BETA - Here's where I pile in all the technical guesses like, a more stable platform (It's already better than SL in my experience!), Mesh, Physics, Voice.  But these anyone can guess and have already expounded upon before.

2.   FASHION HISTORY - The Fashion World of InWorldz will really take off, with never heard before new designers coming out of the woodwork and drawing the gaze and appreciation of people from all around.  It will be a time of a great Renaissance in virtual fashion, with all eyes turning to the InWorldz stage.  While I wander through the shops of InWorldz I see some of the "big names" that came over from "other grids", but more and more I am continually floored by the sheer talent that our local InWorldz designers have.

3.  200,000 RESIDENTS with 1000 online at a time.  We're already growing exponentially.  When I joined there were something like 5000 users and at any one time, usually 25 people were online.  Today we have about 27,000 users and about 140 online.  Going up!

4. 2000 TOTAL REGIONS, and counting!  Last I heard we were at about 750 regions already, and growing!  Hey Lucy... we have some s'plorin to do!

5.  TRUTH Hair - Truth Hair will come to InWorldz!  Ok, OK!  This one is sheer fantasy on my part and not based in any kind of fact at all, just wishful thinking!  I can dream right?!  Alright I know I said I don't hold out for wishing things were a certain way, but pretty, Pretty Please?!

5.   WORLD PEACE - Here's where I get to sound like some kind of cheesy Miss Universe contestant.  That's right!  We're actually all going to figure out how to get along. And puppy dogs for everyone!  Well okay, those of us already InWorldz already know how to get along, but it's our job to help the newcomers realize that this just isn't like the "other grids".  It's kind of fun sitting back and watching the frantic frenetic energy around some of the new arrivals as they rush to get pretty and figure out the pecking order, only to realize there isn't one, and that they can completely relax and be themselves.  InWorldz Peace - It's a beautiful thing!

Our time here in this virtual world, is a blink of brilliance, a shooting star that streaks silently across the sky, amazing in it's complexity, and yet so profound in it's simplicity.  We may never pass this way again, so make the most of it!

Shine on!
