Recent Releases from On A Lark

I have a couple of sexy romantic outfits from On A Lark to share with you today. The first is called “Blayze” and as always it has a variety of ways it could be worn.  I opted for the least clothing possible… *grins*  I have also included Lark’s vendor image as well so you can see the outfit in its entirety.

New from Legal Insanity

Legal Insanity - teaser campaign #4

In case you hadn’t heard, the Legal Insanity mystery has been solved.  Datrip Blackbart has created a new label for Legal Insanity called “Bitch & Chic.” Everything in this section of the store will only be L$110.  It isn’t open yet, but once it is it will have items for the ladies (everything will come with Lola appliers) and soon there after it will have items for the gents.  I have seen a catalog, but I have been sworn to secrecy!

And now I have a bit of newness for you from Legal Insanity.  Datrip’s designs always have a bit of a rebel feel to them for me, so I ran with that as I styled the following look. (Click photos to enlarge)

Saturday Dress by Marshmallows

There is something about Saturday mornings that make them unlike other mornings.  For me it is the ability to rise as early or as late as I wish, and not have anything pressing to do beyond household chores.  For me Saturday mornings are spent at my own pace, drinking coffee and reading the blogs I follow, or working on writing of my own.  When I saw Romy Dash’s Saturday Dress, the feel of my easy Saturday mornings came to mind and the following styling was the result.

Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It’s about accepting all of yourself.
~ Tyra Banks


Today I finally achieved what I have been calling the “magical three.”  Since beginning my fashion blogging journey, I have been honored to have Marshmallows, {MUA}, Legal Insanity, On A Lark, and Charltina’s accept me into their blogging families without requiring syndication.  I am grateful to each one of them for sharing their designs with me and helping me grow as a blogger.  I have enjoyed styling their items tremendously and will continue to do so.

I have found that most designers require that a blog is syndicated on at least 3 feeds to even be considered.  I completely understand why that is a requirement for many designers.  If they are going to be giving you items to promote, you have to have an audience, if there is no audience, why give items away for free?

Once I began to learn the ins and outs of fashion blogging I made it a goal to achieve the “magical three” and hoped my blog was good enough to be accepted into well known SL fashion feeds.  I wanted to do right by the designers who believed in me, and get their wonderful designs as much exposure as I possibly could. I have to say this process would have taken much longer had it not been for SL Blogger Support.  Being a part of that blogging community has been invaluable and helped shorten my learning curve significantly.  Thanks to SLBS I achieved my “magical three” in what I felt was record time, and because of that I feel I have earned my SL fashion blogger merit badge.  Who are my “magical three?” The Grid Syndicate, Feed.Me!, and the SL Daily Wire.  Thank you for deeming my blog worthy to appear in your feeds, it means a great deal to me.

With school starting again in my RL, my time for blogging has been greatly reduced, leaving me twitchy at times as I crave to style and share all the goodness the designers have bestowed upon me.  So without further ado, here is my latest styling featuring the work of my wonderful SL mom, Discovering Destiny from On A Lark along with some striking eyeliner from {MUA}.

 I have continued to enjoy my Slink hands and feet very much (thank again for the unintentional nudge Shanty!).  I used the Deesses Skins Slink Avatar Enhancement Natural Nails set for my fingernails and toenails.  I love having perfectly matched hands and feet and a variety of nails choices available to me at a click of a button.

I found Lark’s outfit to be not only sexy but powerful, and as with many of her designs it has a rather earthy feel to me.  I opted to couple her design with a rather striking hat from Chic Zafari.  It suited my mood on many levels…the thrill of being syndicated and the desire to blog only to have RL slow me down…this hat symbolized to me the boldness and freedom of expression I enjoy.

The hair is from Eaters Coma and I have to thank Strawberry Singh and Farrah Helendale for the tip.  I discovered Eaters Coma at Hair Fair and had not gone to the main store to pick up more…talk about an oversight!

So Much Newness!

There are so many things that are new in my SL…too much for one post.  So I will begin with {MUA}. It isn’t a secret by now that Shanty Bookmite has now created Slink nail appliers.  For me this was huge.  I consider myself a cautious fashionista.  I am not one to adopt the latest craze immediately or press my avi against a sim line hopping to get into the hottest sale on the grid the moment it opens. I find I like to sit back and observe all the other fashionistas a while before I make my move. So why was I so excited about Shanty’s release?  I have been on the fence about mesh hands for a long time.  I have mesh feet, but they weren’t Slink and I always thought they were rather good.  As soon as I saw Shanty’s notice about her upcoming Slink appliers I knew the time had come.  So I went out and invested in some Slink hands and feet and am so excited to blog about the latest release from {MUA}!

Shanty’s make-up is always bold and her nail appliers are no different.  They inspired me to put on my Loovus Dzevavor and strike a pose that could capture all the head to toe boldness!  I am very excited by all the styling options there are with Slink hands, and {MUA} has certainly delivered.  As I told Shanty…I expect to be posing with my hands in my face a lot more! 😀

Purple Dream Pashmina

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Today I bring you new releases from {MUA} and On A Lark. “Purple Dream” by {MUA} is a lovely make up set with vibrant hues and glossy lips.  Lark’s “Pashmina” corset and skirt in steel are both bold and sleek.  I adore the ruffles on the corset and the texturing of the skirt.
