Dress US Up!

Us MSC girls are joining in on the fun… the Dress Me Up Challenge, which was thought up by the lovely Achariya Maktoum!

So have a go… we are excited to see what you want us in!Rules:
1. Post a picture of yourself in your underpants.
2. In this post, invite your readers to suggest a particular outfit (or hair, jewelry, shoes, skin, etc.) from a designer for you to purchase and write about. (Designers, feel free to suggest items from your own line – why not, after all?) People who respond should explain why they like these items.
3. In the next few weeks, look back over the suggestion list and incorporate these ideas into your regular blogging, marking these entries with the tag “dress me up.” Post in as many or few suggestions as you want. It’s up to the blogger’s discretion to pick which items to wear, so no complaining if they don’t pick your idea, K?

Hey…hello….hi! :)


Hello lovelies! :)

I wanted to post a little hello to everyone. Sorry it has taken me so long. I have been super busy with RL and SL. The festive period is just crazy isn’t it? Between xmas trees and preparing for the new issue of ROLE magazine I have been swamped. I also just wanted to say I am so looking forward to posting on here and I was over the moon that Felicity asked me to blog with her. It’s truly an honor to be involved in such a great blog. So a big thank you to you Felicity.
I will be posting a review on the new MMS london skins and new Cachet goodies very soon! So keep a look out. But for now I need to make my way through the snow in RL booo hiss! I am posting a little picture cause ya know I was excited about posting my first post and I cant get enough of the Black winter vest from Gritty Kitty.

Take care everyone.

Belleza

I have a mountain of things in my *TO BE REVIEWED* folder. I am slowly but surely going to work my way out of there. My main focus today is the new Belleza Skins! I have had them since last week I think?! I just haven’t had the chance to blog them.

I know I tend to go on about skins when I review them. Really that is simply because anything I do choose to share here, is exceptional. I am not going to show you skins I think are just okay. So while I am thinking of far above and beyond okay…. lets talk Belleza’s new skin – - Belle. I am wearing the pale skin in all the shots below, fyi. I am mentioning that because while it is a lighter skin tone, there is so much warmth to it, not pasty white at all. I can really appreciate that, because I do favor a pale skin, as you all know.

The make up selection is wonderful, you have a ton to choose from. Which seems to be pretty par for the course at this point in the skin game. But where skin designers are really excelling these days is in the body detailing. This body is just flawless, the shading has the perfect effect on all the right curves.

I think everyone is talking about them, on nearly every blog, and that is not at all a coincidence. I haven’t seen anyone thus far that these skins don’t do justice to. While I am thinking of that… because I have had these for days on end, they are actually available to the public as of now. So fight the crowds and get your hands on a few dozen!

I figured I might as well also share some of the newness from TRUTH while I am at it. Will make it quick tho…. Fabo jacket, love the sculpted collar, and the belt and jacket detailing. Comes in tons of great shades…. ohhh and lookie at these hotttt boots. Yep, TRUTH as well. The also come in delicious colors, and are probably completely different then any other pair you have, which is reason enough to go snatch em’ up.

MSC Welcomes Keeley Huet


I have some fantastic news! Keeley Huet will be joining the My Second Closet Blog! She will be accepting review copies just like me, and sharing all her thoughts.

I am so happy to have her here, not only is she a gorgeous model in SL, she has an amazing sense of style and a great personality. She is also writing for ROLE Magazine, like me, and I have known her since our time working together at Aspire.

I hope you will all give her a warm welcome, and enjoy all the great things she has to share.

The timing on this has worked out really well, as I am more and more involved with the goings on with ROLE Magazine, and feeling like I am neglecting MSC. So… I think we will together be able to share things, and keep our readers much more informed.

Above is a shot of the new MSC Logo, which you can check out over at the blog site as well!!

Chai, Shai & Enky

I have a few things to share today, and might be back later with more, if I can get my crap together =)

I pretty much pounced when Casa Del Shai’s new Volpe Silk Blouse was released, because I had gotten a sneak preview when I saw it on Shai over at plurk. It is most definitely my new favorite blouse, I adore the sculpted bow, and the sculted sleeves. Even without any of those perks, the texturing alone is gorgeous, it is defintely geared towards the holiday season with all the shimmer and shine, but I think I will be wearing it long after the parties have past! Btw, I am wearing it in Peach.

I am also sport the new enkythings Cypa boots. They are totally different then most of what is offered out there in the boot world, in so much as they have all kinds of prints on the calves of the boots. You can get them in an assortment prints / textures and both in brown and black colored boots. I choose the Black Nightblossom, since I thought it really lent to the look with the blouse. I have good plans on getting tons of use out of them.

And finally, I have managed to make my way over to Chai and oogle at the new skins. Any time I see someone offering skins with freckles…I am SO there. And even better that it happens to be Chai, because 1- I don’t have any of Launa’s skins, and 2 – they are fantastic. I love the different cleavage options that you have as well as that every skin comes with the freckle option. The body is gorgeous, shading is done so well, so and touchable…just like me! *giggle* I LUV the booty btw, as you will see below. Then there is the face, and all the amazing makeup options. I am big on lip gloss, and grabbed up mostly the shiny lip smackers =)

Have a look….


The skin I am wearing is Chai Double Shot 03, and the makeups from top to bottom – - Antonia, Black Cherry, Haze & Mistress.

::eLDee:: Viva

I haven’t had the chance to blog about ::eLDee:: in a while, and am happy to have some newness from Lil to share!

This new dress called Viva, comes in assorted colors, the ones I am featuring are; Green, Purple and Aqua. The skirt is fun, and has a lot of fluffed up layers, and each bow comes in a contrasting color to offset.

I happen to really enjoy shopping in Lil’s store, most of her work is really colorful and fun. Usually combining odd prints and colors together, but pulling them off really well. Her swimsuits are really great too, so if you are feeling like taking a dip in December, knock yourself out.

ROLE Magazine

ROLE Magazine’s premiere issue has been released today. You can view the magazine online HERE. I am so excited about it, not only because I had a chance to work with so many great people on the project, but also because the magazine is full of amazing content.

I worked on a really fun editorial spread, and got the chance to dress up some of the best people, YAY! Also be sure to check out my Dear Felicity column, and start submitting questions for next month’s issue.

They are having a release party today @ 1pm SLT. I hope you all can make it…. SLURL


Enjoy the magazine, and please let me know what you think about it!!

Masquerade

Let me tell you a little story on how I acquired this gorgeous gown, Silver Lilly from Moxie Polano’s….

Some of you, or most of you know of Strawberry Singh… or Berry as we all call her. Well, yesterday afternoon she teased me on Plurk with a fantastic image of her in Masqueradeness (I know its not a word damn it) and heading to a ball. So…I decide I am going to go…and start to rummage through my closet. Of course, while I have more then enough to wear, nothing catches my eye. So I finally settle on a lovely little number from Moxie’s. But its a Masquerade thing, so I need a MASK! As my luck would have it *just* then Moxie logs in. I pounce, explain my dilemma (hoping she might have a glorious baby blue mask to match my gown) Wellllll…. how about she had a brand spankin’ new gown, that was so not even released yet, with a fantastic matching mask. She asks “Do you like black?” – - “Uhh, yeah, who doesn’t?!”

Next thing you know, I am in Moxie’s workshop in quite possibly the most exquisite gown I have ever seen. I am not just saying that because I love Moxie, and she is a close friend. I am constantly amazed with her work. She looks at each gown with a fresh vision, new lines, ideas…. This one is unique with the sculpted bustle, there are beautiful flower details nitched into it, and the layering on the skirt is unbelievable; tulle peeks out beneath the inner layers, which are shaded perfectly, so much so, I can feel the silk running through my fingertips. There is a wonderful shawl that comes with it, which is also sculpted, and falls off your shoulder in a natural way. In addition to all of that, Moxie is working on all these marvelous masks. With this gown you get the accompanying mask, in both the worn on face, and the hand held. So I tell Moxie, in all seriousness “If I decide to go gay, I am marrying you”

Which brings me back to Berry, lol… I don’t know how that relates, but lets just move along. I go through all this trouble (poor me, I know), and I send her an IM, only to find that she has left the damned party. Yea, that’s right…there I am covered in new Moxie, and I got no place to go. Lucky for her I got busy with other things, and when I checked back in she was over at the Avatrait Gallery Opening… which was amazing, if you haven’t been….GOOOOO!

Alright, I will shush up now… thank you Berry for giving me a reason to blog =)

TRUTH

**Felicity beats on Blogger** I have NO idea why it is freaking out on me today, but for the thousandth time, let me try and post this:

I disappeared again! Sorry!

I needed a little break, not to mention I moved RL… but here I am, for a sec.

I wanted to share some new TRUTH. I adore this new hair Babyhoney, and not just because it carries the name of one of my SL friends <3 I think it also really reminds me of my curly locks, or DID, as I now am sporting the straightness.

The Kawaii sweater is adorable, and cozy as anything. Love the great heart print on it, and the fab color options you have. You also get a BONUS scarf to match. I went with the Ruby sweater & Pink scarf combo… after trying on 10 other combinations =)

And the great Bloom trousers, also from TRUTH…. another great buy! I love the *bloom* detailing both at the pockets and the cuff! Lots of colors to choose from again, so you can really mix it up.

That’s all from me for today, I have to get back to work! I am now working with Role Magazine! Woot! Great company =) Keep an eye out for the up coming issue! http://www.role-magazine.com

Ohhhh and how can I forget?! Happy Turkey Day, to all those celebrating!!

Adam n Eve

I have a lovely new gown from Adan n Eve to share today! Sachi always manages to be very creative with her styles, and this is no exception. The new Celebre, which I am sporting in green, makes you shimmer from head to toe. It comes with a few options, a short fitted skirt, and a longer more formal version with a train. There is also a fun sculpted piece, that you can wear with the long version, or just on its own. I think the cut outs on the sides are fun, and show off some great skin, which, we all know I am a fan of. There is a lovely color selection as well, I am sure you can one that suits your fancy.

I was really happy when Sachi shared it with me, because I needed a little time out from all the stuff I was doing. Now that I have had some fun…. back to work!! Good things to come guys! I am soooo excited to share, but will button my lips!
