Lick don't bite

I had some lovely surprises waiting for me when I logged in to Second Life yesterday. Lady Stromfield, of House of Dragovar, had sent me this form fitting high collared gilet, and Eve Express, creator of Face Paint cosmetics sent me a whole bundle of her latest work to review - yummy! Thank you so much for your inspiring work ladies!

I've been styling lots of girly girl looks the past week or so, and I think it was about time for an antidote.  I went for something a little edgier, with the latest group special mesh skinnies from Maitreya, the fab DOOM boots from sYs, tattoos I picked up at the Kawaii Fair last week, and boy hair from CheerNo.  I'm loving this look, and I hope you do too!

Lavender days...

I'm so loving this season's simple, elegant chic styles.with their clean lines and pretty colours. My new finds this week include the Pastel Zipper Skinnies from Maitreya that come in a wonderful range of colours, and this pretty frilled top from Mon Tissu that comes with both solid and sheer options.

More mesh news - Tabata Jewell of Vanity Hair has produced her first rigged mesh hair - this simple high ponytail comes in 3 style options - with a band (shown), and with and without a fringe. The band version comes with a colour changing hud that enable you to match the band exactly to your outfit. Nice work Tabata! I look forward to more mesh hair from Vanity!

Another of my favorite designers brought out their first mesh this week too - Sim-i-lar Footwear have released these incredible mesh stilettos - Lucca - with gravity defying steel heels. I got them in white patent, but I can see myself going back for more!

New mesh from Mohna Lisa Couture

I teamed up with my big sis Starlitestarbrite Constellation today to show you some mesh newness from Mohna Lisa Couture (MLC). We decided to go with one of this seasons hot trends - black and white, and went for a leisurely stroll through Mayfair for a spot of shopping and lunch.

These outfits illustrate the range very well - from classic chic through to more youthful hotness - and what better than this cute cutaway mini dress that really sparkles inworld, to show off Star's looooong tanned legs? As always at MLC, the dresses come complete with accessories and shoes, so you can wear your outfit straight out of the box, or mix it up a little, as your mood takes you.

Itsy bitsy, teeny weeny...

Small, but perfectly formed, Lady V of Voluptia has just released a new bikini - Keeni, and it's very nicely done. Tiny enough to catch every eye on the beach, Keeni comes in 6 colourways and 2 top options - the more modest one (shown here) and "slipped" which shows just a little bit of nipple. I've been working with my House of Heartsdale colleagues on a beachwear video, which Lady V kindly agreed to sponsor, so watch this'll be seeing more of this soon!

GizzA Kallisto

Once in a while, I find a gown that I fall instantly in love with. Kallisto from GizzA is one of them. The golden rope belt and floaty train that flows from the shoulders gives this dress an ancient Greek or Roman feel - timeless, elegant and perfect for spring. I took myself off to a greek temple for these photos, and felt like Persephone wandering amongst the ancient ruins...

Pared down elegance

Some minimalist high fashion today, with these mesh wide leg trousers from new label NYU by Nyunyu Kimono, who has created original mesh designs for men and women with her debut collection.  I've matched the pants with a vivid orange mesh halter neck from Molichino, in keeping with the season's trend for vibrant block colours. And I've gone for some bold, gold accessories in the form of these avant garde "glasses" from Leezu and stunning gold bangles from Mandala - a pared down look like this can afford a bit of bling!
