This month the Uber event in SL has a Nordic theme, which is one of my favourites.  Even in RL I love getting out my Fairisle gloves and sweaters to wear in the winter season, so I am super excited to share some of the wonderful goodies that I picked up from the event.

Yule dress from Just Because and Nantucket skirt and sentinel jumper from Emery (all available at Uber)

As well as some gorgeous women’s and men’s apparel, Uber also has some wonderful Christmas decorations and homes and both items for interior and exterior landscaping so that you can also create your own winter wonderland before snuggling up on the sofa with a hot cocoa and some gingerbread biscuits.

Fluffy fox sweater from Rebal Gal and Storm leggings from Canimal (available at Uber)

Also in the women’s section, there is also some gorgeous skins, hair and make up.  For the photos in today’s blog I am modelling the beautiful Noelle eyeshadow and lipstick set, together with the Ornament nail selection, both from Alaskametro at Uber.  There are also some stunning jems and jewels to include some very festive Ornate Christmas ball earrings from Yummy.

Helga outfit from Dead Dollz (available at Uber)

I have to say that I felt like a child at Christmas as I was walking around Uber this week and wanted to pretty much buy everything.  However, I think that this may be enough to whet your appetite for now, but who knows, do not be surprised if you see another blog post in the near future featuring some more delights from this month’s fantastic Uber event.

Have a great weekend, happy shopping and until next time …

A Whole Lotta Sass

Posted in High Fashion,SL Mesh,Uncategorized,ZK Designs by Piper Hanriot on November 17, 2018

I have been meaning to write a blog post for ZK Designs by Zara Kent for a little while now, however with a busy RL lately, it has not been possible to do so until now.

Ashlee jumpsuit in olive

For my RL birthday back in June, my wonderful friend in SL bought me an outfit from ZK Designs as a gift. Prior to this I had seen ZK Designs at some of the monthly SL events, but I had not stopped to really look at the items.  However, since my birthday, I have been stopping to take a look and I am now building up a small collection of gorgeous outfits, so I decided to show off a few of them.

Joy lingerie set in red

Like a lot of the SL apparel designers, ZK Designs have their own colour palette, which is one of the things that I like.  This coupled with Zara’s fresh and sassy creations makes it the perfect combination.  ZK Designs are predominantly modern and contemporary in their style, however every so often Zara does release something a bit more whimsical and vintage, which again works perfectly with her colour palette.

Avril jumpsuit in soft pink

I only realised before writing today’s blog that I have in fact featured two jumpsuits, but they are both different.  Fear not though, as I do plan on blogging for ZK Designs again in the not too distant future, so I will ensure to include some photos with skirts and dresses.

In the meantime though, I highly recommend a visit to the ZK Designs store, which you can see all of Zara’s beautiful apparel.  ZK Designs also have more gorgeous outfits, which you can currently find at the following SL events:

  1. The Liason Collaborative;
  2. Vanity Event;
  3. Cosmopolitan Event;
  4. Kinky Event;
  5. Tres Chic Event.

Have a good weekend and until next time …

Come Fly With Me

Posted in Autumn fashion,Collabor88,High Fashion,Scandalize,Shiny Shabby,SL Events,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on November 11, 2018

The past few weeks have been busy for me with an RL contest, which was great fun, however with this weekend being a wet one here in the UK, I am finally able to catch up on some blogging work to bring you some more wonderful women’s apparel from the world of Second Life.

In this blog post I am featuring the amazing stylings from the brilliant Yanikka, owner and creator of Scandalize (Anxcid, Arias and Ruth outfits).

Backdrop_006

Ruth outfit in navy

The Ruth outfit (shown above) comprises a top and pants with chain belt detail, which is probably better suited on the dance floor, unless of course, you like to travel in style.  This set also includes a gorgeous ombre version of the pants.  I do love the criss-cross style of the Ruth top.

Backdrop_004

Anxcid dress in red

Come day or night Yanikka thought of both when she created the Anxcid dress.  This outfit includes a long and a short dress, so you can be smart during your daytime working hours before switching to the shorter dress, letting your hair down for the evening.  The bolero is separate which you can wear either with or without the dress.

Anxcid is currently available to purchase at the Oct/Nov round of Shiny Shabby.

Airport_006

Arias outfit in marine

For a bit of 70’s flow, then I highly recommend a trip to the November round of Collabor88.  Here you will find the brand new Arias outfit from Scandalize.  Even though I was only a child in the 70’s and so fashion was not even on my radar, I do love when the SL events give their monthly events a theme.

The sassy Arias outfit has 3 different style pants, one pair matching the top, an ombre pair and a denim jeans pair.  I love the wrap around top and gorgeous belt with this outfit.  I was very tempted to purchase the fatpack version of this, I am not sure why I did not.  Lol

Well that is all I have for this blog post, however I will be back soon with some more amazing creations from SL, and in the meantime, enjoy the weekend.  Until next time …

Time to Shine

Posted in Disco,Glitter,Sascha's Designs,SL Mesh,SL Prim by Piper Hanriot on October 23, 2018

For a lot of people around the world, the 2018 party season is nearly upon us.  It starts with Halloween and runs on and off right the way through to New Year’s Eve.  I am usually busy in RL with baking projects, however I always manage to find some time for SL photography and blogging, which I enjoy more at this time of year.

Glitter_004

In SL, Sascha’s Designs has already started with the brand new Folly gown and I am really excited to show this gown off.  I have always loved Sascha’s gowns and since the launch of mesh a few years ago, it is so wonderful to see more designers mixing mesh with prim parts, creating beautiful, elegant and romantic gowns.

Glitter_007

The Folly gown has a mesh applier for Maitreya, Slink, Tonic, Belleza and a fitmesh version.  Sascha has also included 3 different skirt types, which has been one of Sascha’s trademarks, as she loves to give the women to purchase her stunning gowns and also her outfits, a choice of either skirt styles or colours.  The Folly gown is available in a choice of 8 beautiful colours and is available to purchase at the Sascha’s Designs store.

Glitter_008

For those women who prefer something a bit more casual, but with a touch of glitter, then I recommend the sassy Disco Glitter top and pants set.  This set includes both a black and white top, together with mesh pants, which have a hud, so that you can choose your glitter colour.  There are 9 different glitter colours for the pants.

Glitter_02A

That is all that I have for today’s blog post, however I will bring you more party wear from SL very soon and in the meantime, I am now off to start styling and putting together my party look for Halloween.  Have a great week, until next time …

 

 

Scandalize – Autumn 2018

Posted in Autumn,Scandalize,The Black Fair,Vanity by Piper Hanriot on October 7, 2018

Through August and September I chose to blog more items from the various monthly events that take place in SL as opposed to individual designers.  I will continue to do this, however it is also nice from time to time to feature a particular designer, as I have so many favourites now and they all deserve a mention.

Missing melody_039

With a brand new store, which is huge, however with everything on one floor, or at least I do not recall seeing any stairs to a second floor, together with some brand new gorgeous women’s apparel for autumn, CEO and designer, Yanikka is a busy lady indeed.

Missing melody_034

At the October round of the Vanity Event, Scandalize have released a sexy jumpsuit, Caiti, which teamed up with a pair of sassy heels is perfect for a night out.  I do not know if Yanikka has altered this particular colour, however it seems to be leaning more towards emerald green than khaki green, either way I love the colour and I also like it mixed with white for the ombre version.

Missing melody_030

The other gorgeous outfit that I wanted to shout about today is the wonderful Renee outfit, which looks cute and French.  There are two tops included with this set, either a cotton top or a warmer woolly version (as shown above).  For those chilly days that are not suitable for bare shoulders, you can complete your look with a big scarf or bolero jacket and a pair of thigh high boots.  A mug of hot chocolate always goes down a treat as well.

That is all I have for today, however now that I have a short breather from a busy RL and more time to blog again, I will bring you more October delights very soon.  Until next time …

New Looks for Autumn

Posted in Designer Showcase,Fameshed,I.M. Collection,KC Couture,SEUL,Valentina E,Vanity by Piper Hanriot on September 9, 2018

My favourite season has arrived and I am so excited.  The mornings are cool and fresh and driving on my way to work I can see some of the leaves on the trees starting to change from green to yellow with a few trees already shedding a few leaves, which have fallen to the ground.  For me, autumn is a magical time of year.

Some of the apparel designers in SL are now also starting to release their autumnal designs.  On visiting Fameshed, Vanity and the Designer Showcase this weekend, I found some gorgeous women’s autumn wear, which I thought that I would share with you today.

Busy_004

Valentina E have released a smart casual, but also cozy outfit Irina, comprising jeans, roll neck top and smart jacket.  The Irina ensemble is available to purchase at the September round of Fameshed.  It is available in 4 different colours and there is a hud included with each one so that you can change the colour of the roll neck top.  I completed my look with a hand bag from Mowie (on the SL marketplace) and Devon shoe boots from KC Couture.

Busy_008

At the September round of the Vanity event, the outfit there were a few outfits that caught my eye and this time I have chosen to show you the Stef flared trousers and knot top by SEUL, which is perfect for either lounging around at home or for a chilled out shopping trip and lunch.  The tops and trousers are purchased separately and both the top and trousers are available in a choice of 8 different colours, so that you can either wear one colour or mix and match.

Busy_011

My final trip this weekend was to the Designer Showcase, which has a whole bunch of fabulous new items and outfits and I admit that it was hard to choose what to feature in today’s blog post, however I finally decided to show you a gorgeous autumn outfit, the Outlander Collection.  This collection comprises a top, jacket, skirt and shoes, all of which you can purchase separately and there are 6 different autumnal colours of each item, so you can mix and match to create your own outfit.  This wonderful outfit is smart for the office as well as for a day or evening out.

I admit that I did not see the shoes that match this outfit until today, so the shoes in my photo above are the gorgeous Katrina shoes from KC Couture.

Well that is all for now, however I will blog some more autumn fashion as well as some autumnal home furnishings and decor very soon.  Have a great weekend and until next time …

 

Uber-licious August

Posted in Just Because,Neve by Cold Logic,Rebel Gal,SL Events,SL Mesh,Truth Hair,Uber by Piper Hanriot on August 28, 2018

I decided to visit the August round of Uber in SL today and I have to say that I think that it’s one of the best this year so far.  Picked up a few gorgeous items to show you and there are some items that I may go back and feature another day too.

Uber_005

Just Because are featuring the new Penelope jumpsuit, a perfect addition for your late summer wardrobe.  This gorgeous jumpsuit is available in a rainbow of colours, with a hud included with each box, so that you can change the colour of the waist and neck tie.  Annie has also added a pretty print pack of these jumpsuits available separately or included with the fatpack.  Teamed up with your favourite sassy heels, this outfit is perfect for either day or night.  I also completed my styling with the new Daphne hair from Truth Hair, also available at Uber this month.

Uber_010

My next choice from the August round of Uber is the beautiful Saffron dress from Rebel Gal.  I don’t wear the colour red very often, so I decided to go bold and I am so happy that I chose this colour to show you.  Stripes and pleats seem to be big in SL fashion at the moment and I love it.  Both stripes and pleats can be feminine and flattering or they can be sharp and dramatic.  Either way I am a huge fan for work and also for casual.

Uber_001

And finally if you are looking for something a bit more casual at Uber, then I highly recommend a look at the Jay top and Low pant by Neve.  Both of these items are available in a choice of different textures and colours in sets of 4 or if you cannot decide on a favourite, then there is also the fatpack, giving you a huge amount of extra mix and match options.

These are just a few of my favourites, however Uber has so much more from apparel, hair, make-up and skins to home decor and landscaping, so go check it out.  Have a great week and until next time …

 

 

Wait a Minute

Posted in Blueberry,Foxcity,KC Couture,Scandalize,Shiny Shabby,SL Mesh,Truth Hair by Piper Hanriot on August 25, 2018

When I woke up this morning I was definitely lacking in inspiration.  I knew that I had some gorgeous items to blog, but I did not know where to start or even if I wanted to blog today.  So whilst enjoying my breakfast and listening to an album by the Pussycat Dolls, that is when the inspiration hit me.

On hearing the song ‘Wait a minute’ and remembering that I had this week bought the new Diamande dress by Scandalize at the Shiny Shabby event (August round), I then set about on a Pussycat Dolls project for today.

London_002

When I rezzed into the world of Secondlife over 10 years ago, I had originally wanted to create my avatar with Nicole Scherzinger in mind, however back then the only thing that bore any resemblance to the gorgeous lady herself, was my avatar’s hair colour.  Since the launch of mesh some 4 to 5 years ago, people have been able to make huge and wonderful improvements to their avatars, so now apart from the fact that my avatar is currently going through a blond hair phase, she does resemble Nicole a bit more than she did 10 years ago.

London_010

I decided to create two styles from the music video that accompanies the song ‘Wait a minute’ and I have thoroughly enjoyed creating this project as a tribute to the Pussycat Dolls.  For the London Underground scene, I used the photo booth and matching poses from Foxcity and completed my style with the Naga heels also from Scandalize, the Showcase coat from Blueberry and Lexie necklace from GeWunjo.

London_012

For the New York city street scene, I styled with the Nera jumpsuit from Scandalize and the Devon ankle boots from KC Couture.  For both of these scenes I also styled using the Ginerva hair from Truth Hair and the Minji skin from Pink Fuel.

That is all that I have to today’s blog and if you ever feel that you are lacking in inspiration, then listen to either a favourite song or album.  You may experience a light bulb moment too.  Until next time …

 

Signs of Autumn

Posted in Autumn,Autumn fashion,High Fashion,Scandalize,SL Mesh,Tres Chic by Piper Hanriot on August 18, 2018

This past week I have started to notice the signs of autumn.  The evenings have started to draw in, as it starts to get darker earlier, the night temperature cooling, followed by a fresh morning with dew on the grass, which in turns makes me smile, as autumn is my favourite time of year.

Dunes_006

Without realising until this morning, I have also noticed that the colours that I have chosen for the new Ankola and Adriyana outfits, both from Scandalize, are also in shades of autumn.  I admit that thoughts of chocolate and pumpkin have been passing through my mind recently, but enough of that.  Let me tell you about these wonderful outfits.

Dunes_012

The sassy Ankola outfit is currently available to purchase at the August round of the Kinky event and comprises a short dress, together with a top.  The briefs are not included, so I teamed up the top with the briefs from the Stasica outfit, also from Scandalize.  I admit that it is great to have a few outfit fatpacks in your wardrobe from Scandalize, as it is great fun to mix and match.

Cozy_013

Yesterday the August round of Tres Chic opened and available to purchase at this event is the brand new Adriyana outfit from Scandalize.  I have to admit that the first word that came to mind when I saw this outfit was ‘Cozy’.  This is definitely an outfit that makes me want to snuggle up for an afternoon with a hot chocolate, whilst watching classic movies, so that is exactly what I decided to do.

Whatever your weekend, I hope that you have a good one and I hope that some of you also feel inspired by autumn and these gorgeous outfits from the amazing Yannika at Scandalize.  I will feature more from her soon.  For now though, back to my movie.  Until next time …

 

The Heat is On

Posted in Blueberry,High Fashion,SL Mesh,Summer fashion by Piper Hanriot on August 12, 2018

In today’s blog post, I am going to share with you some awesome summer sizzlers from Blueberry.

Blueberry have been very busy this summer and of course, when on holiday or visiting the beach on a glorious summer’s day, most women like to spend time looking for the perfect bikini.

Beach_011

The Jenna bikini set from Blueberry has a choice of two different bikini tops and one pair of bikini bottoms.  I have to say that I adore the crochet fringe bikini top in this set, which is so feminine with a hint of boho chic.  The Jenna set is available in either single block colour sets or if you purchase the fatpack there are also some patterned options as well.  Teamed up with your sun hat, flip-flops and beach essentials, you are ready to go.

Beach_023

After a day of sunning on the beach, what better way to show off your tan than an evening out in the sassy Helena outfit, also from Blueberry.  I absolutely love the penny style top, which is so unique and fabulous.  The tops come in two versions, together with a bikini top which you can wear with or without the coin top.  The shorts have a hud so that you can change the colour of the strings as well as choosing to wear them either with or without the zipper.

If you have not visited the Blueberry mainstore yet this summer, then I highly recommend it.  I will bring you more from the amazing Blueberry very soon.  Have a great week and until next time …
