I know I am not alone in my love of my mesh body. It is exciting to me to watch the trend in clothing designing in SL at present. It really is getting increasingly common for a designer to create an item that is not only standard size, but made for quite a variety of the mesh bodies available on the grid right now. Dead Dollz has always been a versatile and creative brand. When I opened the envelope to find Astra for the Vintage and Cool Fair, I about fell over. This dress looks amazing on Lara and comes in a variety of colors. Here is all you need to know about Astra:
- It is the exclusive item at Vintage & Cool which started August 21st and ends September 4th
- Astra is an original Maitreya Compatible Fitmesh creation +Applier
- Available in 6 colors: Blue – Black – Petroleum – Purple – Red – White
- Cost is L$350
Get yours before its too late!

Seriously…my name isn’t Silly for nothin’! Anyway, I was at Truth looking at new hairs like I do and fell in love with this one called Rumi, tho I think it should be called Chola. I have seen a lot of cholos and cholas in my lifetime and for the non-Spanish speaking, a chola is a female gangster or thug or even the girlfriend of a cholo (gangster or thug). Now you have had your Spanish lesson for the day! So this hair made me think of a chola therefore I had to style like one. I love the attitude of Legal Insanity so of course it was a perfect match for my chola feeling. I am wearing the Bettie Corset (melon version). It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies (Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) as well as a fitted version in addition to the standard sizes. I have to say I love seeing more and more designers, provide sizes specifically aimed at mesh bodies. Mesh bodies are taking over the grid! And mi barrio is courtesy of KaTink, Cracked Den 17.
Que le vaya bien,
I am still in a FRO-TASTIC mood (see this image to see what I mean in case you have no clue what I am talking about) so here I am in a fro the lovely Mecca (apocketfulofbutterflies) reminded me I have always wanted to purchase, Rhythm by Puft. The 3rd round of the FAD Fashion Event is still going so I slipped into this fun romper by LEGENDAIRE called the Lucy Jumpsuit.
It doesn’t come in mesh body sizes, but the standard mesh sizes work well and it has a HUD! I do love HUDs and the increased options they provide. It was so hard to choose between the textures! In the end I chose this one because of the cute lil birdy…it made me think of Twitter! I coupled it with the Raven jewelry from Modern Couture.
The Lucy Jumpsuit has coordinating heels, aptly named the Lucy heels. There was no HUD for these, but look at them, love the straps! Oh and do notice my finely polished nails, those are courtesy of PUMBY who has an awesome assortment of brightly colored polishes for Slink and Maitreya perfectly matched to the theme of Tropical Nights.
Thank you for reading!
I was recently asked to blog for Styles by Danielle and incredibly flattered by the request so here I am in some sexiness by Danielle! It is a new lingerie called Lindy and I am wearing it in red. Being as in love with Lara as I am, I was pleased to see an applier for her. With one click I was dressed! Here is some information about Lindy from Danielle:
Lindy lingerie comes in five colors and each color is available as four vendors:
1) Standard SL Avatar Clothing Layers
2) Standard SL Avatar Clothing Layers + Appliers all-in-one layer
3) Maitreya Mesh Body Applier/HUD with six options for wearing (NO Standard layers)
4) Belleza Mesh Body Applier/HUD with six options for wearing (NO Standard layers)
Each vendor contains sheer ruffles, so it is a complete outfit you get in each of them. You only need to choose if you wish appliers or not.
3) and 4) can be a great choice for your RP, if you’re wearing Maitreya or Belleza.
I completed the sexy Lindy with the new Malva Heels from Glamistry, available now at Kustom9.
Now for some sexy music…

The FAD Event continues with Tropical Nights and this round speaks to the color lover in me! Today I have on the Ghee Lime Neon Pemplum Mini. It is HUD controlled so you can pick the color of the waist ruffle and belt. Ghee also provided matching nail polish and shoes…
The polish is called Neon Mani/Pedi and is only for Slink, which was fine as I am wearing my Lara (when am I NOT these days??) and just popped on my Slink hands and feet to show off this brightly colored polish set that works so nicely with the entire ensemble. The shoes are called Ghee neon Bow Peeps for Slink High feet and are also HUD controlled so they can match perfectly with any of the Ghee Neon dresses.
Completing my FAD Tropical Nights look is a new necklace from Legal Insanity called the Layered Chain necklace, the Tootsie hair from Analog Dog, Madrid Solo‘s Bubble Gloss in Orange Red and Feline Instinct 3 from La Boheme. The pose is another from the latest pose set from KaTink called Portia.
Today’s post music…
It has been a crazy week for me in RL, but here I am…unwinding in SL with one of the latest creations from Dead Dollz. I just loved the flirty lil Bedelia dress. (Available now at Mesh Avenue until August 31st.)
“Bedelia is an elegant mini dress in light shiny silk. The dress is available in 5 colors, each pack contains fitted mesh for Maitreya’s Lara, Belleza’s Venus 3.0, The Mesh Project’s Mesh Body, and 5 standard sizes for SL System Body.” – Kiddo Oh
The delicate bow at the back had to be noticed, so I put on my new short curly ICONIC “Worth It” hair (August’s Group Gift) and struck a pose from KaTink (Portia 4). I always smile a bit wider when a designer includes sizes for mesh bodies and so since I am in love with Lara, I am wearing the Maitreya version of Bedelia, which of course fits perfectly. I am wearing Glamistry Heels (Parrasana) to complete the look.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you too get some time to unwind!
What I was listening to as I posted…
Lush by CoCo has some new releases and as always they are FAB! You will see more of what I am wearing below, but once I put on the Jungle Queen (blanc) I fell in love. It fit over my Lara beautifully (that is always where I start these days) and it really did make me feel like a queen. I decided to run with the white and put it on everywhere! I love this hair from Boon (PPK204), and Madrid Solo came out with more of her special eyebrows which I am loving. I also got in some more Nailed It, this polish is called Ethnic and available at PENUMBRA’s Fashion 360. I complimented Madrid’s Adorned Eyebrow Accents with eyeliner and lips from her London Liner set (a long time fave of mine…so versatile!).
Here you can see the Jungle Queen in all its glory. A sexy dress that exposes the flesh in all the right places. KaTink brings the magic with their background (Silence 34) and a pose from their new Portia set, available at The Thrift Shop.
