Light The Way

Light The Way

Azul has always been one of the top designers when it comes to pageants around the grid, and this is no exception. This stunning gown was created for Miss SL Iceland 2018 miss Elita Wardell and in a special color that I am wearing here called IcelandBlue. With two options, either the sheer I am wearing or the opaque, this halter style, sleeveless gown has amazing lace detail throughout the gown. It has pearl accents on the back at the neckline and waist, a flexi accent at the neckline, and of course signature Azul flexi skirts around the legs that flow like no other. It comes in 15 regular colors, and one special edition color on the marketplace and works with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP and standard bodies. It’s at the AZUL Mainstore now for you to enjoy!

A new round of SWANK has started for July with a Tropical Heat theme, and Athena Couture has a sexy gown sure to raise the tropical heat of that special someone. This is the “Amara” Gown in teal. With a short, knee length cocktail style version and this more formal, mermaid gown both included you can wear this for any summer special occasion. The included Omega applier huds give you two different versions on the top and two different bottom versions to accommodate both gown styles. The flexi skirts are full and give the skirt flow as you glide into the room and dance the night away. There is also a fitmesh skirt piece in standard sizes to complete the skirt.

Happy Birthday USA!

USA Bikini

Today is 4th of July, and I can think of no better way than to spend it on the beach with friends and family. Hanging out in the water, the sand and warm sun making amazing memories. I can’t wait for those off shore fireworks tonight and the yummy BBQ food! Hope you all have a very happy 4th of July.

I love this new release from Maci! Just in time for the 4th of July. This sexy USA Bikini come with the top, bottom and the skirt. All three pieces are customizable via an included HUD that allows you to change between 12 Textures and also has transparency controls. I made the skirt about 35% transparent for my look today. It’s perfect! It works with Classic Avatars, Slink, Maitreya, Belleza and Tonic mesh bodies. So Fun! It’s at the Maci mainstore and on the marketplace for this holiday so be sure to pick yours up as you head out for that waterfront celebration!

My nails coordinate perfectly with it as well – these are from Alme for Lookbook June 2018. Lookbook is a shopping HUD you can pick up on the marketplace or at any of the participating stores. Inside you will find makeup, nails and other items to beautify your avatar. These are the “Hot Summer Ombre” nails in Glossy. Five different color ombres – I chose the red for this look today. The hud works with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Tuty’s, Vista Bento and Omega equipped nails/hands. There is a matte version available too!

Poolside Hangout

Poolside Hangout

Summer is the time to spend time outside soaking up the sun. This amazing new water park in SL is just the place to be. The Flip Water Park looks just like a fancy water park you would find in any major area around the globe. Waterslides, pools, food, hangouts, saunas and lots more including a kids area too. This is a fun, summer place to hang out and enjoy that summer sun! Be sure to check it out this summer in SL. My look today is perfect for sitting in the hang out space having drinks, and food with friends. This is the “Summer Flower” bikini and wrap top from Maci. I love this outfit – so fun with the floral lace long top that has a wrap closure in the front. The dress, bow and thong can all be colored differently to fit your mood with the included HUD that has built in colors, or a color picker that will allow you to make your own color combination as I have here. The teal is in the standard colors with the hud, but the orange I created on my own using the color picker and I love how this turned out. So summer and so fun! Comes in fitted mesh for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies. It’s at the Maci Mainstore now for your summer adventures.

These nails from Alme are perfect with this ensemble as well! Three bright summer colors await you in the SL15B Gift set available now at the SL15B celebration shopping area in the Alme booth.
