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 …

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 …

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.

Gowns at Silvan Moon

Posted in Fantasy,Gowns,Medieval,Silvan Moon Designs,SL Events,SL Mesh,Spring by Piper Hanriot on March 24, 2018

I have not blogged for Silvan Moon Designs for a while, however amazing designer, Solas has been hard at work during my busy RL spell, creating some beautiful spring gowns, so here are just a few.

0. SMD_005

The February round of Enchantment saw the release of the stunning Belle’s Enchanted gown.  For those of you who remember your fairy tales, Belle was the woman who fell in love with the beast in this classic once upon a time story.  I have to say that I adore this gown, so pretty and elegant, and as well as the traditional colour, yellow, this gown is also available in 5 more enchanting colours.

0. SMD_009

The March round of We Love Roleplay saw the release of the beautiful Lady Ariana gown, more traditional in medieval style, but gorgeous with its rich taffeta and embroidery print, complemented with a spring pastel colour outer skirt. A must have gown for any occasion.  I admit that I struggled to pick a colour for this gown to show you, as I love them all, but in the end it was process of elimination, so that I could show you a different colour gown for each featured in today’s blog post.

0. SMD_013

Now for some pre-release teasers and yes I am often told that I am a tease, so today is no exception.  Fantasy Faire will be opening on 18 April and Silvan Moon Designs will be releasing 2 new gowns at the event.  The Lady of Shalot and the Moonstone gown.

The Lady of Shalot gown is also in a more traditional medieval style, this time in dramatic dark colours and as for the skirt, I love it, especially when you move and the layers follow, it’s stunning.  I also love the double fluted sleeves, so elegant.

0. SMD_006

The Moonstone gown is an exclusive for this year’s 2018 Fantasy Faire.  This gorgeous gown looks like it will fit an elven princess.  This gown will be available in 10 different colours and for a sneak peek you can see this gown, plus all of the other gowns mentioned in this blog on the Silvan Moon Designs Flickr page.


That is all for today’s blog.  Now it is time for me to head back into the virtual world to seek out more fantasy realms and beautiful landscapes.  Have a good day and until next time …

Classic Styles

Posted in Gowns,High Fashion,Modern,Sascha's Designs,SL Events,SL Mesh,Spring by Piper Hanriot on March 18, 2018

Sascha Frangilli, fabulous designer and a wonderful lady is dancing her way into Spring.  There may be snow here where I live, however in Sascha’s part of the world it has now all melted away and the spring blooms are getting ready to burst into flower.

0. Sascha_003

Art deco dress and hat at Sascha’s Designs. Bea shoes at Mosquito’s Way. Majesty jewellery at Chop Zuey

Something vintage, Sascha recently re-released the classic art deco dress, which are now available with appliers for mesh bodies.  I admit that I am a bit late in sharing this with you, especially as Sascha is now releasing a gorgeous complementing art deco style dress, the Frances, so I am looking forward to showing you this one very soon.

0. Sascha_009

Anisha outfit at Sascha’s Designs. Daisy shoes at Mosquito’s Way

Modern chic, Sascha has also recently released the fabulous Anisha outfit, which is perfect for this spring.  This box contains an applier for the Maitreya body as well as an Omega applier.  As well as aqua, this outfit is also available in beige, black, pink and white.  I really love this outfit.

0. Sascha_010

Sumptuous gown at Sascha’s Designs. Majesty jewellery at Chop Zuey

Romantic drama, the beautiful Sumptuous gown in red was released in February in time for Valentine’s, however this gown is now available in further colours to include gold, which is currently available to buy at the March round of the Swank event.  This month’s theme at Swank is ‘Hollywood’, and the Sumptuous gown is definitely a show stopper.  The head-dress is included with the gown.

0. Sascha_016

As Sascha would say ‘Thank you darrrrrrrlings’ for reading this blog post and I bid you all a good week.  Have a good one and until next time …

Spring Looks

I know that I have said it a few times already, but spring really is just around the corner.  Listening as I hear a few rolls eyes and tuts, especially as the UK is going through one more cold winter snap, which has come in from the east.  I have seen one snow flurry today already and another is forecast for this evening.

However, in SL you can visit sims, all beautifully landscaped.  Some follow the RL seasons and others choose one season.  The March events in SL are also in full swing and even though I was only away for nearly two weeks, it felt longer, as I visited some of the events and bought some new trinkets.  This inspired me to put together a few spring looks to share with you.


Dessie romper by Scandalize at Shiny Shabby, Iconic doll shoes by Blueberry, Cynthia necklace by Avaway, Polly hair by Truth Hair

I bought the Dessie romper from Scandalize before I went away, but did not get a chance to give it a mention then.  I rarely purchase fatpacks, however when I first saw this on Yanikka’s Flickr page, I fell in love with it straight away.  I will take some more photos in this outfit in the near future.  There is a plain and glitter version and you can also wear this as just a top.


Piper outfit by DeadDollz at Fameshed, Gina heels by CandyDoll at Fameshed, Polly hair by Truth Hair

Whilst having a look around Fameshed and planning something for a different blog, the Piper outfit by Dead Dollz caught my eye.  At first I did not realise that the outfit was called Piper and then when it did dawn on me, I was hopping up and down and squealing,  super excited.  Of course this probably nothing to do with me whatsoever, however it is still an honour and this outfit rocks, so thank you Dead Dollz.


Wendy skin for Catwa by Glam Affair, Pillow talk lipstick by Pink Fuel, Gardenia rings by Yummy at Collabor88

My final spring look for this blog actually comes courtesy of the March group gift from Azul.  This gorgeous dress with its spring blooms pattern caught my eye (like many things do).  I really think that I was either a cat or a magpie in a previous life.  Anyway, teamed up with some fabulous new shoes from Mosquito’s Way at Sense event and hair from Wasabi Pills, time to enjoy an evening out.


Dress by Azul (March GG), Daisy shoes by Mosquito’s Way at Sense event, Linda hair by Wasabi Pills at Uber, Black cat necklace by Earthstones

Photos of these looks can also be found on my Flickr page.  Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great weekend and St Patrick’s day whatever you are doing.  Until next time …

Spring has Sprung

Posted in Chez Moi Furniture,Little Branch,Poses,SL Events,SL Mesh,Spring by Piper Hanriot on March 11, 2018

Returning from my RL work trip it has been nice this weekend to spend some time catching up with my SL photography and blogging.

Before I went away, I visited the Whimsical event in SL and purchased the Sheppard caravan.  Caravan and camping holidays in RL are always great fun and even more so if you are out in the countryside next to a field of sheep or cattle.  I have a small field with a few sheep on my land in SL, so setting up the caravan next to this field was the ideal setting.

0. Caravan x2

This gorgeous caravan has a menu so that you can change the colour.  There are nine colours to choose from.  Also included with the caravan are a few accessories to include a day bed with cushions, a string of lights, potted and hanging plants to complete the look.  There is also a hud for the bed so that you can change the colour of the bedding and cushions.

0. Caravan poses

The day bed also has lots of pose options.  Single poses range from reading, chilling and looking pretty and the couples poses have a great variety as well to include feeding grapes to  your loved one, sharing a glass of wine and just enjoying each other’s company.  I bought the PG version, however there is an adult version if you wish.  This caravan set is adorable and perfect for my English countryside setting.

0. Caravan poses2

To set the scene I also added a few hazelnut trees and a magnolia tree, together with grasses and some spring tulips from The Little Branch.  I love Little Branch landscaping products and the magnolia tree is also animated.  The quality of their landscaping items is superb and you will see me creating more gorgeous outdoor scenes with their trees and flowers in the near future.

0. Caravan_005

Both Chez Moi Furnitures and The Little Branch have stores in-world and on the SL marketplace, so go check them out, I highly recommend them.

Well that is all for this blog, however I will bring you more interior and exterior wonders very soon and in the meantime, I wish you all a good Sunday and spring is just around the corner now.  Hoorah!  Until next time …
