LOTD #1

Hello Readers!

I have decided to try my hand at some LOTD posts.  How will this be different?  Probably less wordy, though I can’t guarantee that.  The main difference will be the LOTDs will be based off of items I have picked up on one of my many shopping excursions instead of strictly from my awesome sponsors. So here is one I was feeling after I have begun the annual summer project of cleaning and organizing my inventory.  Enjoy!

Weekend Warrior

Hello Readers!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!  I have been super busy in RL with family outings and such since it is summertime.  I do miss blogging though and I was thinking as today was Father’s Day what I would do to acknowledge that.  For Mother’s Day it was easy…I have an SL mom in Discovering Destiny, but I realized I don’t really have a father figure in SL.  So as I pondered what sort of post I might make to acknowledge Father’s Day, I knew I would bring the latest sexiness from 7 Deadly S{k}ins aka Damon, but then I saw there was a group gift from Madrid Solo just for the men!  I adore Madrid Solo, so it was perfect!

This post also had a secondary motive I must admit.  My SL sis Fly started a rather interesting conversation on Facebook today. She had commented that she felt discriminated against at times because of her many different avatar looks.  One of the things I have always admired about my sis Fly is her ability to craft a variety of amazing looking avatars and model with all of them.  This is part of the beauty of SL.  While I am quite committed to the look of female me in SL, I rather enjoy mixing it up as a male.  Izara’s skins are PERFECT for that and I eagerly await her blogger boxes so I can see what the latest hottie looks like.  Legal Insanity feeds into the desire to mix it up as a male with their blogger items as well.  In the beginning I mainly enjoyed offering my sponsors a bit of versatility as mens items are much less blogged than ladies items.  Over time however I found that I really enjoyed the challenge of styling a good male look.  Again that is the beauty of SL.  Allowing us creativity in ways we hadn’t considered before.  So I often pick up things for men when I see them, I don’t wait for blogger boxes anymore and I enjoy styling male.  I love that I can do that on my blog and share it with all of you!

Thank you for reading and I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Hello Readers!

I promised more from Artizana and KaTink and here it is!

Today I am wearing my curvier self, complete with Lolas and Phat Azz.  Dainie’s NAKAN XI catsuit just begged to hug some curves so I HAD to curve it up to show it off.  I have to say I am a fan of the curvier figure, not to the extremes I am sure you have seen on avatars out there, but as I always say – to each their own.  For me personally, a woman is meant to be curvy and even being an SL model and adhering to the status quo, I do try to be one of the more curvy glamazons on the runway!

The bench I am on is from KaTink and FABULOUS.  It has way more poses than I could feature here (22 to be exact…some even designated for tall and short avis) AND the bench comes with a VERY detailed HUD that lets you change pretty much everything about it.  The background of course is KaTink, not a new release, but a part of the “Warehouse Pack.”

I am also featuring some lovely jewelry from my SL mom Discovering Destiny from On A Lark. The “Bliss Jewelry Collection” is available now at  the Tales of Fantasy gacha event.

Are my roots showing?

Hello Readers!

I am SO thrilled to be an Artizana blogger.  When I think of my own personal style I think color and boldness and Dainie’s creations are BOTH of those things!  So today I bring you a couple of her creations plus a bit of KaTink.  It is such a treat to get to blog for Marit.  I have enjoyed her work for quite some time and after seeing the latest blogger box she sent out….DANG! You all are going to be getting a sampling of the latest from KaTink over my next several posts, putting it all in one would be a mistake!

Now that I am on a bit of a styling challenge break, I am more at liberty to style my way.  Being Latina, I tend toward bright colors, big jewelry, and fun patterns.  Oh and big hair… I LOVE big hair!

Motherhood is a beautiful thing. I found it ironic that my SL mom would come out with a maternity design about the same time my SL sis announced she was pregnant in RL to the world, something she has been wanting a very long time. So Liat, this post is for you and the beauty and magic that is pregnancy.  I know you will make an amazing mother.

Much love,

Legally Damon

Hello Readers!

I have been meaning to blog the latest from 7 Deadly S{k}ins ever since the June box arrived and was VERY inspired to do it today after seeing the hotness that are the Misters of Mr. Virtual World 2015!  I would like to personally give a lil shout out to Mr Virtual Italy, Trouble Dethly and Mr Virtual Portugal, Bosco Jonson.  They are special to me for reasons they are well aware of. *winks and blows a kiss*  They are up against some very talented and very handsome men.  I did not envy the judges today, but I certainly enjoyed the show!  That said, let me get back to 7 Deadly S{k}ins.  I know I have said before I adore Izara’s work and I do, both male and female.  There is just something about her male skins that makes me want to man up!  One of my girlfriends (who shall remain nameless because I don’t want to embarrass her) saw Izara’s “Damon” wanted me to be her boyfriend on the spot!  So yes, he is THAT good looking!  I of course outfitted him in the latest from Legal Insanity (which is always hot) and the amazing shoes from Pure Poison by Shaleen Kenin.  If you have not stopped by Pure Poison to see the awesomeness she is creating for the men you must go!

Colour of Couture 2014 Concludes

Hello Readers!

What a whirlwind it has been for me this last week or so.  I am finally off for the summer and have a chance to catch my breath and reflect.

Colour of Couture concluded this past weekend on May 31, 2014.  I was thrilled to make the Top 8, which had been a goal of mine.  Sadly I did not make the Top 3, but I am very happy for those who did: my amazing sis Flidais “Fly” Etchegaray was 2nd runner up, the wonderful Eleseren Brianna was 1st runner up (and the new Miss VW Peru 2015!), and the talented Vera Fenutzini was named Miss Colour of Couture 2014.  I am so proud of all my Colour of Couture sisters, we did an amazing job and shared quite the journey.  It always amazes me when I enter a competition how close I can get to those involved.  Colour of Couture was certainly one of those instances.  Not only was I glad to get to know each of the candidates better, I was glad to get to know Reign Congrejo, Sequoia Nightfire, DiamondGem Destiny, and Spirit Llewellyn.

In the finale we were tasked with two challenges…Maximalist and using one of Kimmera Madison’s dresses from Tres Beau Designs.

In both stylings it was important to me to represent the Latina I am. The “mantilla” like head dress from Pure Poison is one I have had a LONG time and have been dying to use.  In the Tres Beau styling I wanted to go with big hair and big accessories which have always been something I have noticed growing up in all the stylish Latinas around me and something I myself gravitate to.  As I have proudly declared on more than one occasion in SL…”Soy Boricua!”

As a special treat I learned I was the challenge winner of the Artizana Photo challenge!  The image below was created by my dear friend Gethsemane Idler and used as the vendor photo for the fat packs of Dainie Fraina‘s “Lakshmi” which will be sold at Fashion for Life! The event opens on June 7th and goes until June 20th. It has been such a pleasure to get to know Dainie and I was thrilled to be invited to be a blogger for Artizana!

In the end, even though I was not crowned Miss Colour of Couture 2014, I still feel like a winner!  I made amazing new friends, got to know wonderful new people, and continued to grow and challenge myself as a stylist.  Now on to the next challenge!
