What About Us

Posted in By Miss Jones,Lavian & Co,Sense Event,SL Events,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on June 16, 2018

The June round of Sense Event is just about to begin and I have pleasure in bringing you an exclusive brand new release from By Miss Jones, a dress named ‘What About Us’.

What about us_003

This gorgeous modern style dress comes in block colours with a hud, so that you can change the colours.  The hud splits the dress into three parts, being dress, belt and ruffle.  The What About Us dress is mesh and is compatible with the Maitreya, Slink and Belleza bodies as well as the standard mesh sizes.

What about us_004

I have to say that I adore the style of this dress.  It is definitely something that I would wear in RL.  It’s so easy and effortless, however very sassy and perfect for a night out.  As you can see from the photos, I decided to have a play and show you a mix of the different colour combinations.

What about us_009

If you wish to keep abreast with all the news and latest releases from By Miss Jones, then why not join the group and don’t forget that as well as the SL events, Sam has also released some exquisite dresses and outfits at her mainstore.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend, as well as the June round at Sense Event.  Until next time …




Designer Showcase Style

This month at the June round of the Designer Showcase, By Miss Jones has two new fabulous outfit exclusives.  Satellite Sisters dress and the Forever in Blue Jeans.  Awesome designer, Sam Jones has also made chain style boots to accompany the Satellite Sisters dress and a pair of sassy peep toes heels to accompany the Forever in Blue Jeans outfit.


Satellite Sisters top and skirt combo.

So what better way to start the summer and in style too, as both of these outfits are so sassy and perfect for looking cool as the weather heats up.  Teamed up with a tote bag and a pair of sunnies, you’re all set from day to evening.


All of these gorgeous items come with a hud, so for example, the Forever in Blue Jeans heels can be one colour or you can mix it up and make them two-tone.  You can also mix the colours up on the top by making the mesh lace a different colour or the same colour as the top.  This is the same for the Satellite Sisters skirt as well.


Forever in Blue Jeans top, jeans and heels

There is also black and a selection of cool denim blues for the jeans. Both in RL and in SL I love a classic denim jean and these are absolutely perfect.  Both outfits are compatible with the Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Venus, Freya and Slink Physique and Hourglass and mesh sizes from XXS to L.  The shoes are only available for mesh bodies Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.


That is all for this blog post, however I will feature more from By Miss Jones in the near future, as it may be summer, but Sam is a busy lady and is already creating lots more  fantastic women’s clothing.  It is wonderful to have her back in SL again.  Have a great weekend everyone and until next time …

Summer is Here

Posted in By Miss Jones,High Fashion,Lavian & Co,SL Events,SL Mesh,Summer fashion by Piper Hanriot on June 3, 2018

Sam Jones, amazing designer and CEO of her clothing brand By Miss Jones has been hard at work this past week creating some fantastic summer show stoppers, so I am delighted to share a few of these treats with you.


Currently available at The Avenue event (June round) is the brand new Perfect Ten dress. A modern contemporary style dress, perfect for the day or evening and as you can see from when I took the photo, I had not even finished my first coffee, so I was still a bit sleepy, as you can tell.


Summer is finally here and I am beach ready in the new To The Edge dress.  There is a hud with this dress, so that you can change not only the main part of the dress, but also the under skirt and the belt.  Beach here I come!


For my final dress choice for this particular blog post, I decided to add a little cutting edge class in the new Forget You gown, however I have to say that this is a type of gown that is more than likely to be remembered, rather than forgotten.  I have to say that I have quickly fallen in love with this gown.  The front is sexy with its thigh high split in the skirt and the back of the dress will definitely turn heads.


All of the above dresses are compatible with the Slink Physique and Hourglass bodies and also the Maitreya mesh body.  The To The Edge dress also has a fitmesh version for classic avatars.  To The Edge and Forget You are both available to purchase at the mainstore.

That is all for today’s blog, so I hope that you all have a good week and I will have more wonderful delights from By Miss Jones for you very soon.  Until next time…






Ready for Summer

In today’s blog post I am featuring the newly released Stasica outfit from Scandalize, which is currently available to purchase at the Cosmopolitan event in SL.  However, don’t panic, as after that, this gorgeous outfit will be available to purchase at either the Scandalize mainstore or on the SL marketplace.


As soon as I saw this sassy outfit, I got excited, especially in the knowledge that the long summer days are on their way and the Stasica outfit is absolutely perfect for a beachy weekend.  Comprising a top and bottoms to wear whilst chilling out and soaking up the sun.  You can then add a skirt to make a dress for the evening.  Perfect.


This outfit is available in a summer rainbow of colours, however on this occasion I decided to buy the fatpack, as Yannika has also included some gorgeous summer prints as well to include sequined silver and gold textures, which I adore and they are also perfect for a summer evening out as you party the night away on the beach.

That is all for now, however I will have more summer delights from Scandalize very soon.  Have a good weekend and until next time …

By Royal Appointment

Posted in Gowns,High Fashion,Sascha's Designs,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on May 15, 2018

It was not that long ago when I recall writing a blog and sharing some wedding inspiration when Prince William wed Kate Middleton.  At that time I was working as a manager in a hotel and looked after a couple who were also getting married on the same day as the royal couple.

Now in just less than a week’s time we will be wishing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle all the best as they exchange their wedding vows, which the rest of us toast them with Prosecco and wish them all the best.


In SL we can also dress up and toast the royal couple and Sascha’s Designs also has the perfect outfit for the day.  The Hyperis was recently released in the colour nude.  I have featured this dress before in a previous blog post and still maintain that teamed up with matching shoes, hat and clutch bag, it will always be an outfit full of class and style.  The dress is mesh and comes with the standard mesh sizes.  The shoes are compatible for Slink feet and I admit that in my photos I chose a different shoe, as I wear a different mesh body.


With the formalities completed, you could change into a more formal gown to dance the night away.  Once again, Sascha has recently released some perfect spring gowns, which are beautiful and perfect for such an occasion.  The Enchanted gown is absolute stunning and Sascha has created this gown with some gorgeous spring floral textures.  It was hard to choose which one to wear.  There is also a choice of three different skirt options, depending on your style.  The Enchanted gown is compatible with Maitreya, Belleza and Slink mesh bodies and there is also a fitted mesh option.


Finally if you would prefer to sparkle like your glass of bubbly, then I would recommend the Gigi gown, also from Sascha’s Designs.  The beautiful Gigi gown is also compatible with the above mentioned mesh bodies.  This gown was originally released in white, gold, aqua and pink, so I am now delighted to announce that Sascha has released some brand new colours for this gown, nude, black, silver, blue, vanilla and red.  This gown really does sparkle, I simply love it.


That is all for today’s blog, however if you would like to see more from Sascha’s Designs, then a visit to the mainstore inworld is a ‘must’ or if you prefer to shop online, then you can visit Sascha’s Designs on the SL Marketplace ‘link here‘.

I am now off to go and wave my Union Jack flag, sip a glass or two of bubbly, wave and cheer the new royal couple as I watch them on television.  Wishing you all a good week.  Until next time …  Toodle pip!

Spring at Miss Jones

Posted in By Miss Jones,Designer Showcase,High Fashion,On9,SL Events,SL Mesh,Spring by Piper Hanriot on May 8, 2018

Today’s blog post may not see me waffling on as I usually do, but then again, sometimes people just want to see pictures and create their own stories and ideas.  Honestly though, my writing time at the moment is limited due to RL cake projects, but I just had to share with you some brand new releases from the Miss Jones store.

For those of you who do or maybe for those of you who do not follow my work on my Flickr page, I have shown the new and sassy Answerphone dress

Clef de Champs_001

This past weekend Miss Jones also released the brand new Candy Paint dress (shown above) and the Call My Name dress.

A hud is included with these dresses, so that you can change the texture and these gorgeous dresses are also compatible with the following female mesh bodies (Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Altamure and TMP).  The Call My Name dress (shown below) is available in either block colours or printed textures.

Clef de Champs_017

Both beautiful summer dresses shown here and all of Miss Jones’ new and recent releases are available at the mainstore.  Please link to the mainstore below.

Last week I blogged the Speak Your Mind dress, which is available to purchase at the May round of the Designer Showcase.

I am also excited to tell you that the fabulous Speak Your Mind dress 2 (shown below) is exclusively available at the May round of the On9 event.


Well my loyal readers, it looks as though I have ended up waffling on for longer than I had anticipated, however I hope that you love these new dresses as much as I do and I look forward to sharing with you, more from Miss Jones in the near future.

For not though, I must away back to RL.  Toodle pip!  Until next time …

Welcome back Miss Jones

Posted in By Miss Jones,High Fashion,Lavian & Co,LivGlam,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on April 30, 2018

Last weekend I received a note card advising me that Miss Samantha Jones, owner of Lavian and LivGlam is back in SL.  I am so very happy and yes I did a happy dance in my living room still wearing my PJ’s, and I do not care if anyone saw me.


At the time when Miss Jones left SL for RL back in 2016, I had only just started blogging for Lavian, after a friend of mine recommended the store and put my name forward to blog for Lavian & Co, as they were named then.


Lavian and LivGlam have always been known for their bold and beautiful fabric textures, as well as their stylish and sophisticated block colour palette as well.  Miss Jones, as she is now known, has released a couple of brand new dresses, Sister Cities and Speak Your Mind.


Sister Cities dress (photos above)

Both dresses are available to purchase at the Miss Jones store.  Link here to the mainstore.  Both of these dresses are available only in a fatpack version, which I admit I do not mind at all, as I love the texture palettes in both of these fatpacks.


Speak Your Mind dress (photos below)

Are these dresses compatible for women’s mesh bodies?  Yes of course they are.  Included in the box are versions for the Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Ebody and a fitmesh version for the classic avatar.  There is also a hud in the box, so that you can change the dress texture.


It is well worth joining the group and Miss Jones has also made available some of her Lavian work as well, both of which you can purchase either at the mainstore or on the SL marketplace.


For now I imagine that Miss Jones is still settling back into SL life and designing, but I am very excited to see what she has in store for us through the summer and I will definitely share with you more wonderful goodies from Miss Jones very soon.  Until next time …


April Events in SL

The April round of events in SL are now in full swing.  There are still a few more to open over the coming weeks, however I wanted to share a few gorgeous trinkets from my SL event travels thus far for this month.


The Black Fair has been open for a week now and Scandalize are back.  I was so happy to Yanika post a photo in Flickr of what she is featuring at the Black Fair event this year, so with spring finally here and dreams of long sunny days, I thought that I would take a stroll over at Soul2Soul Bay.


Of course when deciding which colour of the Susan dress to purchase, I was stuck, I usually am with Scandalize and then after I decided, I then wished that I had just bought the fatpack, so I may make another trip back to the store.  *Laughs*  In my mind I knew exactly the spring look I wanted and the Susan beach dress is perfect for a bit of beach glamour.

Black Fair 001

At the 2017 Black Fair event I bought an unusual, but stunning gown from Eclipse Designs (the Samal) and this year they have done it again by releasing the Shinty dress.  You can wear the Shinty either with a long or short skirt.  This dress oozes sex appeal and teamed up with the Paula shoes by N-Core (also at the Black Fair) and No Sir hair by No Match (at the Sense Event) you can quite happily stop traffic.

That is all for this blog post, however if you have not had a chance to visit The Black Fair yet, then I highly recommend it.  Have a good weekend and until next time …

Afternoon Tea

The Cosmopolitan event in SL is one of my favourites and I have been visiting this event since it began some years ago in 2013.

For the current round there is a gacha by Duvet Day, which comprises a wonderful conservatory building, together with some items for the conservatory.  After putting my first coins into the slot I was excited to see that I got the conservatory, which is also the rare item in this set, so I played a few more times and also got the rug, the hanging light and the decorative jar.  This then gave me an idea for this blog.


I then visited Trompe Loeil and purchased a sofa and chair set, which had caught my eye when I visited their inworld store recently, and which I knew would be perfect for this particular project.


I also remembered that at the March round of Fameshed I had purchased a home baking set by Dust Bunny, which included a yummy lemon cake, together with a British tea set from Tartessos Arts and plates and napkins from Fancy Decor.


I completed this project by adding a sleeping cat from Chez Moi, together with some conservatory plants from What Next, DB Design, Chez Moi and Dutchie.  I will probably either change or add more plants in the future.  My first thought was to create a lovely afternoon tea in this fantastic conservatory, then take it down again, however having now also added some lime trees, sunflowers and grass from Little Branch and a cobblestone pathway, I quite like this space, so I think I will leave it on my land for now.  It may very well become my quiet and tranquil place and I think that everyone needs a retreat such as this.



For now it is back to thinking and planning what I would like to create for my next project and in the meantime, I wish you all well and have a great weekend.  Until next time …

Spring at Neve

Posted in Neve by Cold Logic,SL Mesh,Spring by Piper Hanriot on April 1, 2018

Today’s blog post features a designer whose store I have visited a few times and I have also seen some of her new releases at some of the many monthly events in SL.  Neve by Cold Logic have a wonderful store, both in SL and also on the marketplace.  Their designs are gorgeous and their colours are fresh.


Jude dress in geo

One of the things that I love about Neve is that they create, say for example. one top in four neutral tones as one pack, then create another three packs with tops in different colours and some with a pattern or texture on them.  For me when this is then complemented with a matching skirt or pants, I then spend ages choosing my favourite.  Theoretically I should just bite the bullet and purchase the fatpack.  Lol


Outfit overall in corduroy

Neve women’s clothing packs include fits for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink mesh bodies.  Another thing that I love about this apparel is that it has a sense of romance and whimsical about it with a hint of edge and sass.  Neve by Cold Logic clothing is definitely my kind of style and I admit that I do excited to see what new treats they have released at the monthly events.


Connelly top in lively and Demi skirt in stripe

I will definitely blog more from Neve very soon and in the meantime I hope you like the items that I have featured in today’s blog.  I already have some more gorgeous outfits to share with you soon.  For now though I hope that you have a good Easter.  Until next time …
