Peace on Earth Hunt ~ another peek!


The Peace on Earth grid wide Hunt starts at midnight SLT, spreading a whole lot of seasonal peace and goodwill across the grid! That's just 7 hours until you can start hunting for literally hundreds of gorgeous gifts!!!


 I'm wearing (and posing with) some more of the fab gifts you'll find. This lovely vintage style dress from Alafolie is beautifully textured like black and gold lace or crochet, and hits just the right chord between smart and sexy. It's complimented perfectly by the earrings, necklace bangles and gold high heeled pumps from Ear Candy.  The poses are from a set of five called "Peace" from The Muse Poses. 

There's so much to find in the POE5 hunt, I doubt I'll get close to blogging it all, but I hope to bring you more peeks as the hunt  continues!





Relax


Sometimes it's nice to just chill out in some relaxed casuals, and I'm loving the new soft pants and sweaters from Maitreya in luxurious soft knits that look like they're made from the finest cashmere - comfy, cosy and still so chic!
Style notes:
Sweater: Maitreya - Lux Sweater /Wool-Mix Peach
Pants: Maitreya - Stefani Pants /BabyBlue
Scarf: Tram - Nordic Scarf
Shoes: Maitreya Gold - Suave /Raven
Hair: LeLutka - Electra /Powder

A Taste of Honey


I've been such a busy Bea this past week I've hardly had any time for one of my favourite activities - SHOPPING!!!  But I finally made it to the Bees Through the Seasons event that opened last Saturday. I've been meaning to get there all week, lured by some of the gorgeous bee inspired designs I've seen popping up all over Flickr and the blogosphere.

You may have noticed I have a fondness for yellow - in real life I never wear it because it makes me look quite ill, though I do drive a bright yellow car! But in SL, I love wearing yellow, so I had a hunch I'd find lots to love at Bees Through the Seasons, and I did. The build is uber cute, with the stores set out in little beehives, and there's a small selection of fashion, skins, home furnishings and accessories to tempt you (and they're not ALL yellow either!). I fell in love with the little knitted bee from The Domineaux Effect - it's modifiable, so I made it huge for these pics, but usually it will live on my bed at its original size:)

Golden girl


Well, I finally made it as an SL celebrity! My shape has been copied and put up for sale on the SL Marketplace. I'm taking a philosophical stance on this, as copybotting models seems to be a bit of a trend right now, and as many have said, it's only a few pixels. The worst thing about it is, the copy of my shape is so CHEAP! But, if you really want to walk round SL in an avatar that looks like mine, save yourself a few lindens - IM me inworld and you can have one for free! 


I adore this dress from Remy, it called out to me from across the store, and I knew I had to have it! I felt like doing some dramatic styling, and finally got to use this sooooo tall beehive hair from BooN that I've had my eye on for a while...and the striking new makeup from blackLiquid, Forrest, that combines lashes that are tiny silhouetted trees and heavy black eyeliner. I'll be wearing this outfit at some clubs and parties over the next month for sure! Scroll down for the style notes.

Fame


Fame. That's the name of this dress from MOLiCHiNO. Sharply tailored in mesh, this is wonderful to style up, or down, or any way you choose. I can see why they chose this for the styling challenge in the MOLiCHiNO Style Maven contest - you can check out the entries in the Flickr group.

I decided to add a touch of glamour with a feathered collar from Cheerno and the striking Fashionista shades from Glow Studio. I carried on the black and white theme with MOLiCHiNO's Bindi belt and a clutch from Je Suis. Leggings from Bax echo the zebra stripes, and the look is complete with high heeled boots from Maitreya.

The Mad Hatter



So, there I was, trawling some of the fabulous Black Friday sales, when I stumbled into L'Accessories where there were some great bargains to be had, including the studded clutch from HANDverk that I picked up in a few more colours. Of course I had to take a look at the new collection as well, and this month it's choc full with hats! I love the Edwardian feel of this hat from Drift so much I bought it in 2 colours - this attention grabbing gold and turquoise, and a more sensible black and grey. Had a lot of fun styling this look - I hope you enjoy!

Wrap It Up


Back from a fantastic week in NYC (yayyyyy!!!), slept off the jet lag (urghhhh...), now it's time to catch up on what's been happening on the SL fashion scene! 

A nice welcome back surprise in my inventory was the new Wrap It Up dress from Xi Zane of LUSH*Limited - a classic style, this wraparound dress comes in 4 luscious colourways - I'm wearing the plum/pink/blue combination. 

There's been another new hair release from LeLutka too! All 3 styles are fab, as usual. This is Ella, a wonderfully flattering casual style that I'm loving with my slightly tweaked new look. Yes, I did a bit of "work" on my face - if only it was this easy and painless in real life! The only change is in my mouth, which I've made a little wider - so I thought it was time for a new headshot for the record. What do you think?

I'm in a New York State of Mind


I've been humming "New York, new York" all week, I'm in a New york state of mind, and I'm heading to the big apple later today!!!!! It's my RL birthday this week, and I decided it's about time I fulfilled my dream to visit the world's second best city (well, I AM a Londoner! :P).

So, no blog posts from me until I get back on the 21st! In the meantime I thought I'd leave you with this stylish new hair release from Lelutka and the fab new top/dress from Celoe. Stay safe and have fun folks, and see you soon!

Sharp dresser


I love, love, love this jacket from Diram! It's one of those "I must have it!" items - stylish, striking, great shape, perfect texture. It screams "style" to me.  I've styled with black pants from Lush*Limited, a simple black tee, a drapey scarf and this cool trilby hat from Guardian's. I've been out and about SL shopping in this for about a week now, and it gets comments everywhere I go, so I know it's a hit.

Elemental



It's aways wonderful to discover new (to you) designers, and even better when they are your friends! The very lovely Warm Clarity, owner and designer of Ghee, has been trying her hand at SL clothing design for just a year, and she feels rightly proud of her most recent creation - the Elemental Gown.  I teamed up with my sister Kellis Denimore to show you these gorgeous gowns.

Combining translucent mesh, flexi and traditional clothing layers, the Elemental Gown is even more stunning inworld because the mesh and flexi textures are animated, so it glistens and glitters, with a life of it's own. A stunning gown for making an entrance and to ensure every eye is on you on the dancefloor. The gown comes in four colours, named after the four elements - earth, air, fire and water, and each is lovely. Go for your astrological element - as a Scorpio mine is water, or treat yourself to all 4! Get down to Ghee now - here's your taxi. This one is a joy to wear!
