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 …

Feeling Peachy

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on June 24, 2017

Carrie’s Lingerie recently released the Kasslina lingerie set in beautiful summer pastels.  This lingerie set is available in 6 different pastel colours and there were 2 colours that I really liked, however today I thought I would feature the Kasslina in peach.


The box includes an Omega hud for those ladies who wear a mesh body and the hud itself has a range of different ways in which you can wear this stunning lingerie, as you can see from my photos in this blog.


I adore the combination of the satin lingerie, together with the intricate lace work, making this lingerie set so feminine and beautiful.


Whilst I was busy take the photos for the Kasslina, Carrie sent me a box for a new and exclusive lingerie, which is due for release shortly, so I am very excited to show you a sneak peek of the brand new Andie lingerie.


The hud only has a couple of options, however I have to say that this bodysuit and stockings are super sexy and I am looking forward to seeing the other colours of the Andie lingerie.  Who knows I may feature another colour in my next blog for Carrie’s Lingerie.

For now though, it is time for me to make some breakfast and I will bring you more delights from Carrie’s Lingerie very soon.  Have a good weekend …



Santa Baby

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on December 22, 2016

Just a quick blog and also in time for Christmas and for those of you out there doing some last-minute Christmas shopping, TST Creations have released their brand new lingerie set, Anita.


Anita lingerie set in Black

TST Creations have been quiet for a while, however with the release of the Anita lingerie set, it looks like they are back with a ‘Bang!’ and I have to say that I adore the mix of lace and sheer, making this set very sexy indeed.

This is available for the classic avatar or you can choose either the Maitreya or Omega hud to wear the lingerie.  The Anita body is also available to purchase on its own if you do not wish to purchase the whole lingerie set.

As well as black (modelled above and below, this set is also available in black/pink, black/gold, black/green, black/cyan, black/red and black/white.  The colour contrast sets are stunning.


For more details or if you wish to purchase this beautiful lingerie, TST Creations have a store in-world or you can find them on the Second Life marketplace.

Merry Christmas and I hope we’ll see more from TST Creations in 2017.  Until next time …



Carrie’s 12 Days of Christmas

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on December 10, 2016

On the 1st December 2016, Carrie’s Lingerie launched their annual 12 Days of Christmas lingerie and outfits for 2017. I have been very busy in RL making goodies and gifts for friends and family, however today I have an opportunity to share just a few gorgeous snippets from the 12 days so far.

On day 4, Carrie released the stunning Holiday Jessica lingerie set.  This set is available in a 3 dark colours, being royal blue, teal and red and being Christmas I have chosen to show you the red set.  I adore the lace detail and would love to see if this same style works for pastels as well.  Hint, hint, nudge, nudge to Carrie 🙂  Included in this set, Carrie has also added an Omega applier for mesh bodies.

On day 6, Carrie released the Elisabeth gown and lingerie set.  Again this set is available in 3 colours, icy, lavendar and alabaster, of which I have chosen to show you this set in alabaster.  There is an Omega hud applier with this set, which contains a big variety of different options for wearing the gown and lingerie.

For the gown, Carrie has also include 2 different skirt options, the patterned version, shown above and a plain satin version, both trimmed with lace edging.  Carrie has also included a full face make up with this set and to complete the look you can also purchase this set with a pair of matching stunning heels, which are compatible with Slink feet.


Finally as you can see from the above photo, I was Santa’s helper for the day and whilst walking around Carrie’s, I found this huge snow pile in the middle of the road.  Being from the UK and not having the opportunity very often, of course I just had to dive in and have some fun.

Enjoy your festive shopping and I will try and blog again before Christmas.  Until next time …

Cylon or Human?

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on October 2, 2016

Since July I have been watching the Battlestar Galactica remake from 2004.  It was a TV show that I intended to watch back then, however my real life was quite busy so watching this show fell onto the back burner for a few years.

Being a huge sci-fi fan in general, some of you may remember that towards the end of 2015 I posted a blog featuring a female character from Star Wars, creating a look and style with my SL avatar and watching the 2004 remake of Battlestar Galactica, I felt inspired once again to create a character, so this time I chose  the super sexy cylon Number Six.



Looking at the SL Marketplace I am sure that back in 2004 and whilst this show was running, there were a lot more items relating to this TV cult, which would have assisted me with this project, however now there are a few viper’s, cylon raiders and the odd t-shirt to purchase.  There is also a Number Six outfit, however it is very old from the prim days in SL.


I have to say that creating a look and styling my avatar has actually proved to be quite easy and had I thought about this as a project back in 2008 when I first rezzed into SL, I know that this task would have proved to be far more difficult and my SL avatar in 2008 would not have looked as stunning as she does today.


Since then SL has evolved, we now have mesh, not just mesh clothing, but also mesh bodies and heads, all designed and created to improve the standard SL avatar.  Hmmm this does make me wonder if we actually started life as cylons ourselves.  Whilst on my styling quest for Number Six, I also discovered that a lot of the designers have in 2015 and in 2016 created clothing not only for mesh bodies, but designed styles of clothing typical of what you might have seen worn by Number Six in Battlestar Galactica some 10 years ago.  Some of the outfits I am featuring in this blog are not 100% exact, however they are pretty close and you can relate this to the actual character.


As for the character herself,  when Number Six was not looking ‘smokin hot’ in sexy dresses, teasing the mind of  her beau, Gaius Baltar, driving him wild one moment and guiding him through the rocky waves in space the next, she also looked just at sexy covered up, including joining her fellow cylon sisters going into battle to save their existence.


After this brief interlude, I am now heading back to season 4 to continue watching and to see how things work out for Number Six, Geius Baltar and all the other characters in Battlestar Galactica.  So say we all.

If you would like more details on my styling for the fabulous Number Six, then head on over to my Flickr page  https://www.flickr.com/photos/47089508@N08/  Until next time …

A huge thank you to the designers included in this blog: Catwa, Amara Beauty, Rezology, IKON, Blueberry, Graves, Vaxer, Stars Fashion, N-Core and Mandala.

Charlie Blue

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on August 19, 2016

I am still in the process of catching up with some blogging some moving house in RL, so you will see a few quick posts featuring one or two items only for the next couple of weeks.

Here is one of Carrie’s Lingerie’s recent releases, the Charlie lingerie set.  The style of this lingerie is perfect if you want to put on a show.


This lingerie set comes with corset, panties, stockings, suspenders. gloves and the bow tie.  Carrie has also included an Omega applier for women who wear a mesh body.  This gorgeous, almost burlesque style lingerie set also comes in a choice of 6 glorious jewel colours.


I do not have any photos of it yet, but Carrie has just this week also released the new Lara lingerie set, which is more sheer, but also just as sexy as the Charlie set.  Both of these sets are available to purchase at Carrie’s Lingerie store in Secondlife.

Happy shopping everyone.  Until next time …

Mesh Head Research

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on July 7, 2016

Hello readers.  This week I finally decided to do some of my own research into mesh heads in Secondlife with a view to purchasing one for myself at the end of my research.

I started by reading a few blogs and spoke to a good friend of mine and after this task was complete,  I went shopping for some demos.  I chose to try mesh head demos from Catwa and Lelutka.

Once I was armed with a few mesh head demos to try, I also bought a few mesh head skin appliers from various designers to try with the mesh heads.  From reading blogs written by other women in Secondlife, it was interesting to see just how different the skins by different designers look once you have applied it to the mesh head.

0. Head 2

I spent the best part of two days trying out the demos and in the end I decided that the Lelutka head was my favourite.  One of the main reasons I chose the Lelutka head is that the designer has included a note card in the box, which detailed not only what was in the box, but also information on how to wear your mesh head, as well as explaining the hud for the mesh head and how to use it.  Unfortunately the Catwa mesh head demos did not have this, so it was very much a case of pressing the buttons on the hud to find out what everything does.

Don’t get me wrong, I am sure the Catwa head is great.  I hear a lot of people raving about them and I have also seen some wonderful photos in Flickr of some of my friends and people I follow wearing their mesh heads.  The Catwa head was just not the right one for me this time.

0. Head 1

For now though, I have to admit that even though I have only been wearing my new Lelutka mesh head for a couple of days, I love it already and I have also received a couple of lovely compliments from friends, which is very much appreciated whilst also confirming that I chose the right mesh head for me.  I have shown above a few photos using two different skin appliers.  The hud with the Lelutka head, like the Maitreya Lara body, comes with Glam Affair pre-set skins.  You can purchase separate Glam Affair make-ups to add to your look.

I  also blog for Amara Beauty and until now I have not been able to blog the skin appliers compatible for a mesh head, as I have not had this option.  However, now I am able to and I am delighted to finally be able to show off the Kallie skin applier (03 beige) for the Lelutka head.  Unfortunately this is the only one that the awesome Shantia Soulstar has created for this mesh head, so maybe a *nudge nudge, big smile* and a pretty please can you create a few more skins for the Lelutka head Shantia?

Well that is all I have for now, but I hope you find this blog useful and if you have not yet tried wearing a mesh head yourself and you have an hour or so free time, then give it a go.  I had great fun with this research project.  Until next time …

Summer is here

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on June 4, 2016

The first six months of 2016 seems to have flown by.  I cannot believe we are already in June and now the summertime is here again.

Today I decided to spend a little time in SL exploring and seeing what the apparel designers have been busy creating for this summer season.

I first visited one of my favourite monthly events, Uber where I found a wonderful bikini and robe by the fabulous Dead Dollz.  I have seen some of my friends blog the white set, so I was very happy to see they also had the bikini and robe in my favourite colour, green.

Dead Dollz have made these items exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body.  There are lots of different colours to choose from so hurry to get yours, as this round at Uber will soon end.

0. Arandom6

Mumbai mules in brown and Tripoli sandals in white from Essenz

The Mumbai mules and Tripoli sandals are not the most recent from Essenz, however I do love both of these, they are my style and both of these shoes are also available with an applier for the Maitreya Lara mesh body.  Both the mules are perfect for summer and are also available in a variety of different colours.

Julia dress in red from Glitterati by Sapphire

Finally for this blog, I found this gorgeous summer dress at Glitterati by the awesome Sapphire Teebrook.  This dress is a one of a kind item and it also has an applier for the Maitreya Lara mesh body.

Well that is all for this blog, however I will have some more wonderful summer apparel soon.  In the meantime, enjoy your SL and thank you for reading.  Until next time …



Spring Scorchers

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on April 26, 2016

Carrie’s Lingerie released a brand new lingerie set for spring 2016 and I have to say that it’s a scorcher and is definitely a head turner.

0. CB Rachael

Rachael lingerie and wings in red

The Rachael lingerie set is beautiful and sexy in stunning lace and comes complete babydoll float and wings.  Carrie has also created matching shoes (sold separately for Slink feet) and make-up.  So ladies if you want to add a little drama or just be a little devilish, I would recommend this lingerie for you.

0. CB April

 April Limited Edition 2016

This month’s stunning Limited Edition for April 2016 comprises a gorgeous teal gown (above).  However, you can also just wear the lingerie if you wish (below), as both look great.

 0. CB April 3

Carrie has also added matching make-up, as well as matching shoes, which are compatible with Slink high feet (not shown here).  This outfit is compatible for the classic avatar and also contains an Omega applier for those women in SL who wear a mesh body.

Well that is all for now, however wedding season is just around the corner, so I will bring you some stunning wedding looks from Carrie’s Lingerie very soon.  Until next time …




Black Magic

Posted in Uncategorized by Piper Hanriot on March 27, 2016

Last week while I was on holiday, TST Creations released their latest lingerie set, the Serena.

0. Serena 1

Serena lingerie in black

I am a huge fan of TST lingerie, however I am not sure if it is the colour or the intricate lace, but I do like this set very much.  It is both beautiful and sexy, which I imagine is just what the designers were looking to achieve and they have certainly done so.  It is like black magic.

0. Serena 2

The stunning Serena lingerie comes in a choice of seven different colours (black, white, red, pink, cyan, gold and copper) and can be purchased either for the classic avatar or mesh body avatar (to include Maitreya, Belleza, Omega appliers).

The mesh body applier versions come complete with a hud, so you can select how you want to wear this lingerie.  For more information or to purchase this gorgeous lingerie you can either visit the TST Creations store in-world or on the SL Marketplace https://marketplace.secondlife.com/products/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&search%5Bcategory_id%5D=&search%5Bmaturity_level%5D=GMA&search%5Bkeywords%5D=TST+Creations+serena

For more details on my styling for this blog, I have posted the photos on my Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/47089508@N08/

Thank you for reading.  Until next time …
