Trinkets from Blueberry

Posted in High Fashion,SL Events,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on July 29, 2017

It has been a few weeks now since my last blog post, however I have not been idle.  As fast as the Blueberry store have been releasing new clothing to their main store and events in SL, I have been hot footing it to the location and picking up some trinkets before returning home to take some photos for today’s blog.

Blueberry_008

I fell in love with the gorgeous Ime lace dress as soon as Blueberry shared with everyone a sneak peek of the ‘work in progress’ photo on her Flickr page and I have to also add that this is the first occasion that I have decided to push the boat out and buy a fatpack from Blueberry, so I am super excited to show you the cool white dress and also the metallic silver dress.

Just when everyone had calmed down from the excitement of the release of the Ima lace dress, Blueberry then shared a photo on Flickr for the gacha items at the July round of the Epiphany event.  I love this gacha event but it can be annoying when you play it and get lots of items in lots of colours.  This time I consider myself lucky in that apart from one item, which I purchased on the SL Marketplace, I managed to get this stunning dream girl set in red.  Yay!

DREAM_015

Whilst playing the Blueberry gacha I also managed to get a few of the dream girl items in pink also.  One of these days I will around to putting all my unwanted items on the SL marketplace and have an SL car boot sale.  In the meantime though I am very happy with my recent summer purchases and yesterday I spied in Flickr Blueberry’s ‘work in progress’ photo for a brand new dress, which I will share with you very soon.

For now though, I wish you all a good weekend and I will have more beautiful apparel from the SL fashion world to share with you very soon.  Until next time …

Rainbow Sale

Posted in High Fashion,SL Events,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on June 19, 2017

This weekend, awesome lingerie designer and CEO of Carrie’s Lingerie, Carrie Bridger held a Rainbow Sale at her store in world with some of her stunning lingerie in a spectrum of rainbow colours a sensational bargain at just 99L$.  I decided to go and have a browse and managed to pick up some bargains, which I thought I would share with you.

Rainbow_002

Rose sheer lingerie in lemon

In this blog, I am not going to waffle about the lingerie and what is included in each box, as I think that the photos will speak for themselves and Carrie’s lingerie creations are so beautiful.  Besides, with a smile, I think you all know by now what is included in the boxes.

Rainbow_010

Emma lingerie set in blue

Whilst browsing, I considered not only my favourite colours, but I also tried to purchase a mixture of styles from romantic and elegant, to dramatic and sexy and I then endeavoured to incorporate that when taking the photos for this blog.

Rainbow_006

Elegance Petals lingerie set in red

Unfortunately the Rainbow Sale only lasted for 2 days, however I would still highly recommend either a visit to the Carrie’s Lingerie store in world or browse this ladies stunning lingerie on the SL marketplace as she has so many wonderful lingerie sets and outfits too.

Rainbow_019

Abigail lingerie set in black and teal

Well that is all for today’s blog, however I will be featuring some of Carrie’s newest releases in the near future.  Enjoy your SL.  Until next time …

 

 

Summer Events

Posted in Hair,High Fashion,Jewellery,SL Events,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on June 16, 2017

I am enjoying an extended weekend this week, now that my RL has calmed down which has meant that I have had time to visit some of the amazing summer events that are taking place this month in SL.

Surf 1

Jasmin bikini by Rebel Hope and Rebecca skin by Amara Beauty

My first trip took me to the June round of Fameshed.  I have to admit that sometimes I forget about this one, but since the anniversary event for Fameshed in May this year, I made sure to visit this month as well, where I bought the fabulous Jasmin bikini from Rebel Hope. The bikini is available in various colours and there is a hud so that you can change the colour of the straps and metal findings.

The cosmetics fair is about to open shortly, however I am very delighted to show you a sneak peak of the new Rebecca skin from Amara Beauty.  Amazing skin designer, Shantia Soulstar posted a photo of the new skin on her Flickr page a few days ago, so I was very excited when I logged in this morning and received this stunning skin to blog for her.  The Rebecca skin comes in a choice of 12 skin tones and is compatible with Catwa mesh heads.

Surf 2

Surf board set from What Next and Haruka hair by Argrace

I sometimes like to use props in my photos, just to add variety and on the SL marketplace I found this surf board set.  I had so much fun with this today.

Included in the package are 4 surf boards.  A standing board with 5 poses, a flat surf board that you can rez in the water, again with 5 poses and then the other 2 boards have one pose each for carrying your surf board, one for under the arm and the other carrying your board over your head.  What Next never disappoint and this set is perfect for a day at the beach.

Beachin_002

Off Shoulder top by Tetra and Aretha shorts by WellMade

My next trip took me to the June round of Uber, where from the corner of my eye, I found this amazing off the shoulder top from Tetra.  This gorgeous summer top is available in various colours and each box contains 2 versions, a solid colour version and a grid line version (shown above).  I am so pleased to see yellow back as one of the main summer colours this year.  It should be a standard colour for every year, but that’s just my opinion.

Beachin_020

Ashley outfit by Finale Couture and Angie hair by Truth Hair

Next I visited the June round of the Designer Showcase where I purchased the gorgeous Ashley outfit by Finale Couture.  It may be summer but even working in an office you need to keep cool.  This short suit and heels is available in a variety of pastel colours.  The shorts and shoes are compatible with mesh bodies, however the jacket is standard mesh and comes in 5 different sizes, all included in the box.

Beachin_027

 

Finally I had to add some sparkles and Earthstones jewellers have recently released their playful dolphin necklace and earrings.  There is a hud included in the box with a choice of 3 different metal options, 3 options for the main stone, 3 accent stones and 3 eye stones.  These stunning items are available at the Earthstones main store and also on the SL marketplace.

Well that is all I have time for now, however I will bring you more SL events news soon as I finally managed to also visit the Tropical Summer Event where I picked up a few trinkets.  For now though, have a good weekend.  Until next time …

Life’s a Beach

Posted in High Fashion,SL Events by Piper Hanriot on June 6, 2017

Greetings dear readers.  I am not sure what happened to March springs and April showers, but in the UK June is starting off with hot weekend and blustery showers and cooler temperatures during the week, which is not a bad thing, however I did not think that I would be wearing my knee-high boots to work in June!

For today’s blog though, I have decided to shower it with warm rays of sunny days, beachwear and tanned skin whilst relaxing under palm trees and listening to music.

 

BEACH_005

Megan bikini @ Rebel Hope Designs

Starting with beachwear, Rebel Hope Designs have just released two brand new bikini sets, the Megan and the Cassy.  I get quite excited every year when Rebel Hope release their new range of beachwear, as they always create something unique and I love the fresh and fun patterns that accompany some of them also.

BEACH_009

Cassy bikini @ Rebel Hope Designs

Both of these fabulous bikini sets come with a hud, so that you can change the colour of the straps and also the metal components on these bikinis as well.  I am also very pleased to announce that Rebel Hope Designs are one of the designers who are taking part in the SL14 birthday celebrations this month.  I have not had a chance to visit the sims yet, so I am looking forward to seeing what Rebel Hope have created for this event.

BEACH_011

Mariel skin by Amara Beauty @ We Love Roleplay

For me, beachwear and new skin releases go together like ‘cheese and wine’ and Shantia Soulstar at Amara Beauty has just released her brand new skin, Mariel, which is available at the June round of We Love Roleplay event in SL.  There are two different skins available, one is with the usual 12 human skin tones and the other is a fantasy skin tone.  I love creating fantasy work  so I will be featuring the fantasy skin tones in a future blog.  For this blog though, I have topped up the tan with just a natural look, so not to spoil the look of this beautiful skin.

BEACH_006

Riviera coastal beach towel @ What Next

One final word of praise for today has to go to the awesome home and garden furniture makers, What Next for this awesome Riviera beach towel.  These are available in either coastal or pinks and the hud is filled with poses for chilling on either the beach, by the pool or on a dock.  You can even sit on your towel and do some fishing. I am going to have lots of fun this summer.

Speaking of fun, it is now time for me to sign off and get back to working on that tan and just chilling on the beach with my coconut cooler whilst listening to the soothing sounds of the sea.  Have a good week.  Until next time …

Step into Spring

Posted in Hair,High Fashion,SL Events,SL Mesh by Piper Hanriot on April 9, 2017

In this blog, I am featuring a whole host of different designers in SL and showing you not only clothing, but shoes and hair as well.  I have put together a few spring looks, so I hope you like them.

SPRING_006

Gown from Albino Peacock at the Designer Showcase

Yesterday I visited the Designer Showcase to see what delights they had in store for April and one of the items that caught my eye was the Ariel gown from Albino Peacock.  The Ariel gown is compatible with various mesh bodies and is available in a choice of six different spring colours.

SPRING_002

Gingham tie shirt from Carrie’s Lingerie and Aretha shorts from WellMade.  Sakura hair group gift from Argrace

Carrie’s Lingerie recently released a variety of new separates called Jodie to include shirts, denim shorts, denim skirt, halter tops, bra tops, leggings, a dress, lingerie, spring nail varnish, make up, shoes and even some men’s boxer shorts.

Each of these items come with a hud so that you can change the colour of the item of clothing.  I highly recommend a visit to Carrie’s Lingerie so that you can see the whole collection.  Believe me when I say that I was stuck for what to choose.

Furtacor_004

Estela outfit from FurtaCor and Feather tattoo from Ivy’s Shop

A designer who has recently caught my eye in SL is FurtaCor who have some very cool and sassy clothing.  I also love their variety of outfits that feature logo t-shirts, which is always fun.  I have chosen to show you the Estela outfit, which comprises t-shirt, shorts and boots.  The box also contains two huds, one for the t-shirt and boots and the other for the shorts and belt.  There are lots of ways to mix and match this outfit and there are a variety of different logo’s for the t-shirt to choose depending on your mood.  Wonder Woman was my favourite TV show as a child, so of course I had to pay homage to her by choosing this logo.  FurtaCor have a store in-world and also on the SL marketplace.

Furtacor_001

I have completed this look with a fabulous feather tattoo from Ivy’s Shop on the SL marketplace.  The box comprises a tattoo for the Belleza body and also an Omega applier.  I am not a great one for tattoo’s however I quite like this one.  I might wear a few more tattoo’s as we roll into the summer.

SPRING_016

Breeanya dress and Iconic doll shoes from Blueberry and Della jewellery set from Lazuri

Finally,  after paying a visit to one of my recently new favourite clothing stores, Blueberry, I saw that they had released a stunning new dress, which I then also saw on Strawberry Singh’s recent blog also.  In Strawberry’s blog she showed the Breeanya dress and Iconic doll shoes in gold, however I decided to go for silver and I completed the look with Della jewellery from Lazuri and hair from Argrace.

SPRING_013

Wakana hair from Argrace

The Iconic doll shoes are available in the Blueberry store and are part of other items that you can receive in the gacha.  The Breeanya dress is brand new from Blueberry and is available in a rainbow of colours. There are also a couple of different fatpack varieties to choose as well.  Each box contains this stunning dress in a sheer version, a transparent version and an opaque version, all compatible with Belleza, Isis, Freya, Maitreya, Slink and Hourglass sizes.

Well dear readers, I have had fun creating these looks and will bring you more spring looks soon.  For more details on my styling for this blog, please feel free to visit my Flickr page link here.  Happy shopping.  Until next time …

 

 

 

 

Which Witch?

Posted in Fantasy,High Fashion,SL Events by Piper Hanriot on October 21, 2016

All Hallows Eve is nearing and I have thought for the past few years at least that there must be some wiccan in me somewhere, as I have always like celebrating this, plus the fact that All Hallows Eve is in my favourite season of the year as well.

In SL the designers from all over the grid have been delighting us all with beautiful mesh decor, furniture and apparel and in today’s blog I am going to feature some strunning witch gowns from Carrie’s Lingerie.

halloween_003

Black Widow gown set

At this time of year my creativity seems to flow so naturally and I feel inspired more than normal to create and to write.

halloween_002

My first two photos above are of the Black Widow gown set from Carrie’s Lingerie.  There are lots of components and Carrie has excelled in ensuring that every detail is covered from the skin tone, the spider tattoo, necklace, arm silks, collar and shoes, as well as the main dress itself.  Carrie has also included a scary make up too (not shown).  This outfit can be worn for both a system avatar and a mesh avatar.  I was so excited that I got my Slink feet to work this time, as I adore the spider heels.

halloween_009

Forgotten (October Limited Edition) gown set

Usually with Carrie’s monthly limited edition items, I run out of time to take the photos and blog them, as they include a full set of clothing, plus shoes, jewellery and make-up.  Depending on what I am doing in RL, I sometimes just do not find the time.  However this month I am pleased to say that I have found the time and the Forgotten gown set is also perfect to show off for All Hallows Eve.

picmonkey-collage

The Forgotten gown set is perfect for a Halloween ball with it’s mesh gown, heels, skin and make up you can be the perfect witch, then after the main event you are then free to shed a layer of clothing and dance around your cauldron creating and casting spells to your hearts content.

halloween_015

I love this whole outfit, however I think my two favourite items is the fabulous green skin and the sultry and gorgeous purple make up (shown above).  Witches are beautiful, just do not upset them.

I will have more from Carrie’s Lingerie very soon, so for now enjoy the autumnal season and the events.  Until next time …

 

 

 

 

Fashion Dream Bond Girls

Posted in High Fashion,SL Events by Piper Hanriot on October 12, 2016

In September 2016, I was busy exploring SL one lazy Sunday when a notice caught my eye advertising for bloggers to blog fashion apparel and accessories for an event to celebrate Bond Girls.  I love the Bond movies, so I applied and I am not very happy to start sharing with you some of the stunning outfits from this event.

For this blog, I am featuring apparel and accessories by Italian designer, Sahra Freschi of Fashion Dream.

casinor_001

Casino Royale – Vesper Lynd

casinor_003

So we start with Casino Royale and Vesper Lynd, played by the fabulous Eva Green.  I adore the scarlet red dress with it’s shoe-string straps and matching clutch purse.  This dress is Fitmesh and the designer, Sahra Freschi has also included mesh body appliers for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza.

The gorgeous purple gown above is also from the same movie and worn by Eva Green.  This gown is mesh in the standard 5 sizes.  Also included in this box is a pair of matching shoes, compatible with Slink high feet, a scorpian brooch for the front of the dress and a matching pair of scorpian earrings.  A killer look wouldn’t you say? 🙂

casinor_004

Dr. No – Honey Ryder

We now travel back to the days when the handsome Sean Connery played 007, and to the film Dr. No, one of the most famous scenes from that movie, even now was the stunning Ursula Andres coming out of the water in ‘That’ bikini with her shells and humming a tune and Fashion Dream have done a fantastic job at recreating this look.

As well as the bikini, Sahra has also included the knife holster, shells and pearl earrings to finish the look.  You cannot see from the photo, as her hair is wet, but I am wearing the earrings in the photo above.

casinor_006

Spectre – Lucia Sciarra

Finally we zoom back to November 2015 when the most recent Bond movie was realeased, Spectre and to Italian actress Monica Bellucci who played Bond Girl Lucia Sciarra.  I have not actually seen this film yet, which is unusual for me, however going on research alone, Fashion Dream have created this stunning corset, which she wore in the movie.

This outfit is mesh in the standard 5 sizes and to complete this look Sahra has also included panties, the shoes which are compatible with Slink mid feet, gun holster and hand gun.

The Bond Girls event in SL is running from 16th to 23rd October.  In collaboration with Miss Virtual LatinAmerica organization, the organisers for this event would like to invite you to join them for a fashion show themed on the Bond Girls. Everyone knows that women flanking the 007 agent James Bond are beautiful, sexy, mysterious and feminine. This fashion show will feature haute couture with creations inspired by the clothes worn in movies, equipped with unique accessories such as guns and knives.

The fashion show will focus on female, but we will have also some male models to play the role of James Bond.  So keep your eyes peeled for more information about this fabulous show and also enjoy this one week event.

I will bring you more from this event very soon, so until next time …

 

 

 

Sascha Designs at Swank

Posted in High Fashion,SL Events by Piper Hanriot on September 4, 2016

On Saturday 04 September, the Swank Event fashion show took place in SL.  It was a chance to go and see just a few of the many designers who will be featuring an item for the September 2016 round.

A lady who did not feature in the show, however she has designed a fabulous pant set to feature at the event itself is one of my favourite apparel designers, Sascha Frangilli.

SASCHA_007

Sensation pant set with long sleeve blouse in white/blue

With autumn just around the corner, this chic pant set is perfect ensemble to add to your SL wardrobe.  The set includes both a short sleeve top and a long sleeve blouse, for those cooler breezey days.

SASCHA_014

Sensation pant set with short sleeve top in white/blue

The pants and tops are mesh and come in the standard sizes and Sascha has also included a pair of stylish sunglasses to finish the look.

SASCHA_003

I’m Fabulous hud dress set in pink

Meanwhile back at the Sascha’s Designs mainstore, Sascha has recently released to ‘I’m Fabulous’ hud dress set in pink, so if you still have an end of summer special occasion to attend, then this may be the perfect outfit.

The dress hud contains 4 different pink/white combinations to include a pink polka dot.  As well as the dress, Sascha has also included a matching purse, fabulous hat and a pair of killer heels, which are compatible with Slink high feet.  I have to say that I do love this outfit and I am not a huge fan of pink, but this look certainly rocks.

Well that is all for now, however I will bring you more news and exclusives from Sascha’s Designs very soon.  In the meantime, enjoy the Swank event September round, which opens in SL very soon.  Until next time …
