"La La Love" with Ooh La La


The other night I was walking along Tableau and found a store that totally caught my eye. It's called Ooh La La, which became the answer for the new lingerie hunt I was on. I immediately went into this cute lingerie boutique and purchased a couple of sets. Ooh La La is created by Nylon Pinkney, a total Fashion Guru.  I really hope Nylon continues creating more lingerie, perhaps costumes?....I can dream right?

Currently there is a total of 4 different Lingerie sets. The Betty Body Suit, Candy Body Suit (Shown above), Veronica Bows Set, and Lacy Slip (Shown below). All are moderately priced and do not exceed $150L, the quality surpasses the price. In addition, there are 11 stockings and 3 garter clips in the collection.

<3 Ooh La La, it makes your unmentionables, worth mentioning ;)

In For The Kill

Today is the last post in the women in game series and I saved my favorite character for last. It's Cate Archer! A reformed thief that is now a spy for UNITY: Cate is witty, and uses on her skills to accomplish her missions. I really became a fan of No One Lives Forever, and purchased the game when I owned a PS2. I actually own NOLF2 for the Mac and still play from time to time. I quickly became obsessed with finding all the hidden case files, using every weapon and sneaking up on unsuspecting enemies to hear conversations. It's become a great stress relief when I've had a bad day. I just take a sniper rifle, climb up high and shoot enemies. The lines in this game are also hilarious, totally filled with cheese. Set in the 1960's, Kate's look is filled with sleek jackets, and bright orange tones. I tried to capture this by my look.
Now for the look...If you noticed in my above picture I'm wearing a new skin from Exodi, Dael, which is quickly becoming a skin that will be part of my everyday look. I have loved Ryker's skins in the past but something about this skin is just totally appealing to my senses. I really Love the lips on this skin. Glossy, shiny and so kissable these lips make my mouth look cute..pouty, and ready for kisses. The freckles are also a big win for me. Each makeup in Dael is gorgeous, they range in mood from innocent, sultry, crushed, playful, just to name a few.  Dael is perfectly suited for Exodi's newest eyes, Zbija, in the deep series. These eyes can give any avatar a soulful appearance. I love how the light reflects in the eye and glassy appearance give such a realistic quality. Ryker's talent and attention to detail can really be brought to light with these eyes. Dael is scheduled to arrive June 1, 2010 and individual skins will cost 1,000 while fat packs for 10 skins will range for 5,000.

And in cause you're wondering...I'm using poses from StoRin's Curvilicious collection by Annah Whitfield. StoRin has really ensured that women of different shapes in SL can pose without a hand becoming misplaced due to having a little curve. There are a total of 20 poses in the Curvilicious pack.

We can fight our desires
But when we start making fires
We get ever so hot
Whether we like it or not
They say we can love who we trust
But what is love without lust?
Two hearts with accurate devotions
And what are feelings without emotions?

I'm going in for the kill
I'm doing it for a thrill
Oh I'm hoping you'll understand
And not let go of my hand- La Roux-In for the Kill

Get Your Freak On...

Here is entry number two in the character series. It's Lara Croft. So needless to say Lara Croft is one kick ass virtual woman, armed with guns, military intellect and an intense body that created a cult following. She's like the female version of Indiana Jones, a total tomb raider.  She's even the star of two movies. I must admit I am a fan of the movies more than the video games; although, I didn't become a fan until I saw Angelia portray her character.  

To capture the "Tomb Raider" look I opted to change the windlight settings to something that was a little more dark. I realize these are not the typical "Fashion" photos, but this post isn't about that. It's about the character and setting the scene. I'm including the credits at the bottom of what I'm wearing.

 
I had another character for Tue, but decided not to blog, if you care to peek they are here and here.

ohhh and Fra yes, I googled, Lara Croft, video game character.....Laura Croft, playmate :P thanks for the correction.  

The Look-Tomb Raider
Hair-69-Me-Dark Chesnut
Skin-Dutch Touch-Isis-Olive-Natural
Tee- Dunes-Simple Tank Top Black

I run like the breeze to catch this life but sometimes get a need til I bleed!
There's truth, I go, there's a rhyme, I will tell it, a story, i'll defend it
Missy come in and I landed! Hell where did she come from?
This international goddess sun so get your hands up like this hun

Tragic Kingdom


This week I am going to try to feature some of my favorite game characters. My requirements for picking the characters were, they had to be characters I played on other systems. They had to be female and needed to be able to kick some booty.

Today's character is Princess Peach. Often saved by Mario and Luigi, Peach is the typical damsel in distress. Her uber cuteness and pink color is usually the main reason I select her when playing any Mario multi player game. I admit it, I was a big super Mario brother's geek growing up.  I watch the movie, TV show played the game, come to think of it I was quite the little fanatic. Peach was the first female character I ever played and is probably one of the most well know characters in time. I had a lot of fun pulling this look together. I hope you enjoy my little experiment this week. 


***A special thank you to fellow Plurker, Winter Jefferson who provided a tip to hit up Bliss Couture for a princess type dress. Now for the Look..

The Look- Princess Peach
Hair-Lamb-Breeze-Powder
Skin-LeLutka-
Dress- Bliss Couture-Nico Dress (Pink)
Shoes-Cherry- Classic Pump-Hot Pink
Crown-Pink Fuel-Cutie Crown
Ring-JPB-Diamonds Party

My Partner in Crime, playing Mario...Just has to sneak that in.........

Once was a magical place
Over time it was lost
Price increased the cost
Now the fortune of the kingdom
Is locked up in its dungeon vaults
The castle floor lies in traps
With coiled wires set back
Decoyed by the old cheese
Now the drawbridge has been lifted
As the millions
They drop to their knees
They pay homage to a king
Whose dreams are buried
In their minds
His tears are frozen stiff
Icicles drip from his eyes-Tragic Kingdom-No Doubt

"Hook Me Up" with Diesel Works...

Diesel Works Poses and Animations has recently caught my eye and totally caused me to lust over the poses, AOs, and Couple sets. Hot, Fun and Romantic; Rogan Diesel has created some seriously awesome poses which are perfect for those that are photo connoisseurs or casual photo enthusiasts. The poses really capture emotion: The moment of attraction, Spirit of Joy and the look of seduction. Whether you want to highlight a bold, cute, assertive or temptress look Diesel Works has you covered in the pose department. Don't worry men Diesel Works has you covered too ;) I must say after visiting the shop there are some items that are now on my wish list. This shop is one that I will be visiting for a long time and patiently awaiting upon every new releases. I highly recommend you take a trip and visit. It's well worth it.


I took a trip to the "Africa" sim to snap some animal shots and take a mini vacation. Mainly I just wanted to have an excuse to wear this short set from Huicci that had been sitting in my inventory for the last couple of weeks. During this exploration, I meet a lively crowd that reminded me about the "Noob" days in SL. They were having fun, goofing off and really brought a smile to my face. Seeing this group, I realized I had lost something special along my SL journey, something that I will try to capture again. Now for the Look...

Of what they're going to be

of me

"Put your Records" on With Sixty Nine

Well this week I attempted to blog using color as an emphasis. I totally failed and managed to only post a total of three. Booo. Bad Blogger. I did; however, manage to find some pretty hair from Sixty Nine. Sixty Nine has released a total of Six new hairs. It seems there are some changes that have taken place with the new release. The first thing I noticed was the texture of the hair. I'm really enjoying the new colors that are available. The browns are more on the natural side of the color spectrum. Another great feature is the resize script that is available in the hair. No more clicking and and sorting the prim hair any longer. With the resize script adjusting your hair is a total breeze.

Today's final color post of the week is Green. When ever sporting this color I tend to feel calmer, relaxed. The color just has an effect on me that's soothing to my soul. When pulling this look together I started with this uber cute Clingy Tunic Dress-Eucalyptus from Kyoot. For me this dress had a bit too much cleavage and I decided to pair under it W&B Lismore Drop Waisted Maxi in White. Next was finding a Skin that matched my color preference, which was extremely easy, with L. Fauna group gift Faberge. For accessories I choose Zarra's Kashiti bobble ring (a recent favorite) and AddiCt's Treasured Peacock Necklace. The final piece was the shopping bag from Sixty Nine, which was totally cute and picture worthy.

The Look-Let your Hair Down

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Wind It Up!

Today's color is all about Gold. Shiny and a coveted piece of metal, this hue is one that will not only get you noticed but suggest grandeur, almost like, "Hey look at me I'm fancy". When I first tried on this gold number my mind went strait to Una Muñeca. (or doll for those that do not speak Spanish)
 SySy's Lana in Gold, is only available as a SLDD exclusive and is available for the entire month of May. To make my Muñeca look I choose Dutch Touch's skin, MaAn, which I think brings a doll like touch when pairing with the feather eyelashes. Finally is the Wind-up key, I've always been a big fan of the toys that you wind up to create action. Something about the mechanical turning and watching the toy dance, flip or walk brings a big smile to my face. Now for the look......

The Look-Una Muñeca
*Hair-Tiny Bird-Magic Trick-(Survey Gift, not released yet)
Skin and Lashes-Dutch Touch-MaAn-Cocoa, Feather Eyelashes-(ValentineGift)
*Dress-SYSY's Lana Dress-SLDD exclusive

*SLDD designer

This is the key that makes us wind up
When the beat comes on, the girls all line up
And the boys all look, but no, they can't touch
But the girls want to know why the boys like us so much-Gwen Stefani

Saturday Morning

It's Saturday which mean it's time to recap the little "look of the day", experiment I had attempted this week. I'm choosing to consider this as a blogging WIN rather than fail. My normal blogging has been once a week twice at tops; however, this week I pushed a little more and managed to get 5 posts out of 7 and you know what? I'm kinda proud. (those two days SL was wonky really threw me off and pushed me back.) I have decided that I really like Look of the Days more because they allow me to mix and match several designers at once. I loved the challenge of coming up with a different look each day, editing photos and writing a bit. I hope that next week I can keep up with the record I set this week, perhaps exceed it. After all anything is possible ;)

On to the look...

My time does fly, I can't believe it's already Friday. Today's look all started with the hair. It became an instant favorite and totally made me swoon. It's from Maitreya, and believe it or not. It's my first hair from this store. The top is from Cubic Effect and was on my shopping wish list since it's release, I finally took the time and Lindens to purchase.. (Random question.Do you keep a shopping wish list?) After finding the top and hair picking out jeans became very easy. I love Surf Co jeans..Hard. To me they are just perfect. Finally the best boots on the grid Bax boots to complete my outfit. The accessories were from bits I had saved in my inventory. Please look at full credits at the bottom for a complete store listing.
