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.

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.

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.

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 …

 

Summer Gowns

Visiting the August events in SL, Swank, Designer Showcase and Fameshed, there is a stunning array of beautiful summer gowns this month.  I have always been a huge fan of gowns in SL, so here are a few of my favourites from the August events.

Events_003

Mavis gown from Just Because at Fameshed

All three of the above mentioned events usually open in the first week of the month and so my first port of call was Fameshed where Just Because are featuring the Mavis gown.  This gown is so elegant and feminine with its delicate flowers.  The Mavis gown is available in a rainbow of colours and whether you choose a pastel or dark shade, they are all just as beautiful.

Events_003

Delicate gown from Entice at Designer Showcase

My next stop took me to the Designer Showcase, the notecard for which I received whilst I was looking around the Fameshed event.  I usually peruse the notecard first, however on this occasion I decided to go straight to the event, as I was having a fun shopping day.  At the Designer Showcase, Entice are featuring the gorgeous Delicate gown.  There are eight different designs to choose from and if you purchase the fatpack, there are an extra two colours, believe me it was very tempting to buy the fatpack.

Events_012

Jewel gown from JUMO at Swank

A few days later I visited the August round of the Swank event and at this event, the gown that caught my eye was the new Jewel gown from JUMO.  This stunning gown comes with a hud, which has a choice of wearing this gown in either a plain colour or there is a choice of two different prints.  I decided to take a photo showing my favourite print, however I will style this gown another day in one of the plain colours too, as I know that I will wear this gown a few times in the coming weeks.

Well that is all for now, however the August events are in full swing and I will feature some more summer trinkets in the near future.  In the meantime, have a great weekend and until next time …

 

 

 

 

All That Jazz

Posted in By Miss Jones,High Fashion,N-Core,SL Mesh,Summer fashion by Piper Hanriot on July 29, 2018

While Miss Jones is busy in RL, spending some time enjoying a glorious summer, I decided to catch on a spot of blogging for By Miss Jones.  This summer may be a hot one during the daytime, so how about cooling off with a cocktail and listening to some mellow tunes.  Looking good is optional, however maybe I can tempt you with one of these stylish dresses?

Bymissjones_018

Private Joy is the first dress in today’s blog.  Chic, stylish and simply gorgeous.  For those women who love to accessorise, then this is the perfect dress in which to do so with.  I admit that I usually opt for delicate jewellery, however this dress deserves a bit of bling, so I set about looking for the perfect ‘signature’ necklace to style with this dress.

BMJ Private Joy

The second dress is one that I have had in my extensive SL closet for over a month now and I have been meaning to feature it in a blog post, but RL has been quite busy lately, so I decided to feature the Chasing Fire dress in today’s blog post.  I have come to learn that trying to choose just one dress texture for a photo is not enough, so I decided this time to choose three.  I completed my look with some stunning new shoes from N-Core and voila.

Bymissjones_004

This dress comes complete with a hud, so that you can change the colour of the ruffle, as well as the belt.  The box also includes two dresses, one with and one without the thigh side straps.  Before Miss Jones went on holiday, she also advised that has revamped her in-world store, which I think looks awesome now, but don’t take my word for it, go and see for yourself ‘smiles’.

BMJ Chasing Fire

Well that is all that I have from By Miss Jones for today, so I hope that you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week.  Until next time …

Adorsy Style

Posted in Adorsy,High Fashion,SL Events,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on July 28, 2018

I recently decided to take a closer look at Adorsy, as I have seen them a few times now featured at the Cosmopolitan event, so I visited the in-world store to see what other delights I could find.

Adorsy_002

After spending some time having a good look around the store, I liked what I saw very much, so I bought a dress and joined the group.  I think that Adorsy is going to be one of those designers that I buy a few fatpacks from.  I do wonder if their lucky number is 6, as they sell their women’s apparel in 6 block colours or 6 denim colours, as well as the fatpacks.

Adorsy_001

The fatpacks include a whopping 30+ colours, together hud so that you can mix and match the various components of the items.  This is very typical of the Margot top, which I recently bought.  I also purchased the Margot shorts, however I only chose one colour for the shorts.  The Margot outfit is so cute and perfect for summer.  I love it.

Adorsy_004

As I mentioned earlier, I also purchased a dress when I visited the Adorsy store.  I was particularly looking for a summer dress and the one that caught my eye was the gorgeous Ashley dress of which I decided to buy the fatpack.  As well as block colours the fatpack also contains some ombre versions and printed floral versions, which are so pretty.

Adorsy_003

Since taking the photos for this blog I have purchased a few more trinkets, which I will feature either in a future blog for Adorsy or a fashion photo on my Flickr page.  In the meantime, I am looking forward very much to see what this fabulous store will release next.

As always, I will post a few of my photos onto my Flickr page over the next few days and for now though, have a great weekend everyone and until next time …

 

Scandalize Summer Trends

Posted in Collabor88,High Fashion,Scandalize,SL Events,SL Mesh,Summer fashion,Tres Chic by Piper Hanriot on July 24, 2018

Having been away from SL for the past week, due to work commitments, it is lovely to return and catch up on the new releases from my favourite fashion designers in SL.

Whilst visiting Collabor88 I found the newly released Amande outfit from Scandalize.  A gorgeous and sassy top and skirt set, which is definitely in my style directory.

Adorsy_008

 

As always choosing just one colour was a challenge, however whilst looking at the ombre versions that come with the block colour version, I was sold on the red and blue combination.The Amande outfit is one of those sets that I might return to buy another colour or even the fatpack.

Adorsy_010

 

The Tres Chic event for July also opened whilst I was away and I have to say that this event in particular is one of my favourites and as I always seem to purchase a few items at this monthly event.

Adorsy_005

 

Scandalize have a store at Tres Chic and released the brand new Niah dress and top combination.  Just like some of my other favourite fashion designers, I love that Yanikka gives us ladies a couple of different options with her outfits.

Adorsy_011

 

The Niah can be worn firstly as a dress with or without sleeves in either the block or ombre colours or if you prefer, you can just wear Niah as a top for a more casual look.

 

I adore both of these new outfits from this amazing designer, however there are more trinkets that I would like to share with you soon.  With a glorious summer now in full swing, I will feature some beachwear from Scandalize very soon.

Adorsy_006

For now though, I will post a few of these photos onto my Flickr page before heading off to enjoy some RL sunshine.  Until next time …
