Morphine...a new find at Monchromatic Fair and Mr. X

Mr. X and I love the idea of tone on tone... there is something so elegant about one wash of color.  While wandering around Monochromatic Fair, I noticed that Morphine is offering a tone on tone dress and boots just perfect for the kind of mood I am in.


I love the soft white peach color of this sassy dress with its' V neck draped cross over top that is playful and sexy at the same time.
This dress called Juliana's Ensemble comes in a variety of colors including blue, pink, white and peach. 
I am wearing one of Morphine's new skins called Freya.  I like the fresh clean lines of this skin with its' sultry lips that has a variety of eyebrow colors to match your hair .
I feel the wind is up and energy abounds.... I am ready...and waiting for Mr. X.

Sea of Dreams & Mr. X.... New release by Sascha Designs

Mr. X said, "imagine an idyllic stretch of the most perfect beach...

dazzling white sand that sprinkles ashore as a sugar soft treat for your toes... the warm sea of luminous turquoises, blues and greens...passing clouds and a ring of green palms swaying in the breeze...."  When I think of tropical colors, I think of the succulent fruits of the tropics... and the new dress by Sascha Designs called Tani that comes in a number of colors and print options.


Passionate orange like the fruit of the mango... the king of fruits, with its rich flavor that is unforgettable -- just like the colors of  Tani in Orange block print with it's elegant dash of hot pink down the center.
Tani also comes in "lemon"  both in solid lemon and a block print.  Lemon is embellished with the butterfly hat that you can wear on your left or right side.  I have paried lemon with the newly released shoes called Xana By Charmed Breedables -- they are just a perfect match for this ensemble.


Lemons....appealingly fresh and vibrant.... this dress makes a statement...with plenty of "zest" !

 Tani in Fuchia the color of sunsets -- and summer dreams -- much like the dragon fruit with its' bright fuchia skin and sweet creamy white flesh.... dotted with tasteful black seeds....

Tani in aqua ... a place where the sky meets the sea.... this dress is like the horizon at dawn with it's splash of pink and gold....

Tani is crowded with a butterfly hat that is elegant and adds allure.... Mr. X is on his way... and oh my what a night we have planned......

Spring into Deals... from fashion to home goods

Aphrodite from Heart Homes has just released "Seashell" Chairs that take their classic lines from the Fan chair style that was all the rage during the Art Deco period  of the 1920s and 1930s.

These chairs project pure glamour with their graceful fan backs. Best of all the chairs come in a variety of colors (7 textures)  from playful dots and vintage floral prints to several solid options including beige, sage green and red.  You can change the color of the chair with a click to the bottom of the chair.
As always, Aphrodite at Heart Homes includes chairs for the ladies with 14 poses and animations and chairs for the gentlemen with 14 poses and animations.  Some of the poses, like drink and read come with an attachable wine glass and book that rezzes when you click on that pose.
Another adorable find from Aphrodite at Heart Homes, just in time for Easter is a decorative table replete with a bunny, traditional egg bread and flowers.
This set comes with a pre-decorated table and three festive pictures that welcome spring in style!  At a mere 14 prims for the entire set, "Little Easter" is a must have for an Spring Celebration.  This was shot inside the Cozy winter cottage, also created by Aphrodite at Heart Homes.
Another find is the dress I am wearing from MC Fashions where everything is 30L to 100L.  This  Chinese Styled dress by Cila Fashions called Chinese QiPao is a must have and is beautifully textured in royal blue with a delicate chinese floral pattern and slits that beckon. MC Fashions is also hosting an Easter Egg Hunt through April 27.

7 Deadly s{K}ins has  just released a series of Gotcha  Easter Skins. I paired this dress with Easter Gotcha 02 skin with its' natural looking pink lips, (Mr. X loves those, sometimes he is such a kissy face)  smokey blue eyeshadow and a sweet kissable mole above my left lip.


Styles By Danielle has several April offerings not to be missed.  The April Group Gift for members of Styles by Danielle is this lovely gold and pink quartz necklace called Zoe.  The design of this necklace makes it a perfect accessory for a V neck gown. Don't forget to wear your group tag!


Another special by Styles By Danielle is the elegant Lorena gown just released in purple that is made of the finest silk texture.  The skirt drapes beautifully with black and purple silk and has an evocative slit up the left side making this dress a tad provocative.  My advice is that if you aren't a member of Styles By Danielle there is no time like the present to join!  This gown is perfect for a spring evening.  This gown is 30% discounted for all Danielle Group Members and is a steal at only $350L.


Danielle is also having a fantastic Easter Egg Hunt...in her main store.  One of my all time favorite dresses is on wicked sale - Ayanna in Creme is 50% off!

The hunt gift is a cute purple leopard top perfect for summer.  Hint:  Look for the Bunny!
I wait for Mr. X in a garden of lavender blossoms... definitely spring is in the air... I cannot wait to see him and whisper sweet nothings in his ear............pity, I never kiss and tell :p

Diwali and Mr. X... © Champagne! Sparkling Couture New Release

On the first night of the new moon of Kartika Mr. X and I plan to celebrate Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Light.  Diwali marks the triumphant return of Sita and Rama to their northern home of Ayodhya.
Enzo of © Champagne! Sparkling Couture has made the perfect dress to fete this time of year, appropriately named, Diwali.  This ensemble was the gown MVW India 2014 wore.  You don't have to be a contestant to wear this glorious dress... that is sure to bring out your inner goddess.
 The four arms of Lakshmi, Goddess of wealth and prosperity represent the four directions.  Many celebrate Diwali believing that Sita is  an avatar of Lakshmi, both are known for their purity.  (No comments from the peanut gallery Mr. X). The details of this outfit with it's sacred lotus flowers and candles  that are lit during Diwali add authenticity to this fabulous outfit.
I love the jewel for my hair that comes with this dress along with the flaming halo much like  the one that Lord Shiva as Nataraja dances the universe into creation and destruction.
 Tonight I shall await Mr. X in the Gardens of Shalimar; they are overgrown and forgotten, heavily haunted by djinns.  It is a good place to sit and watch the sun go down.

A Symphony and a Shimmer Gown and Mr. X

Black and white is classically beautiful and the gorgeous new gown  created by ghee called Vivid Garden Gown is a perfect example of just how sophisticated this color combination can be.

Recently featured at Fiera Spring Fair organized by Saviad, Vivid Garden Gown has several unique fashion embellishments that make it stand out from so many gowns.

Vivid Garden Gown has a skirt of the finest white silk with an iridescent veil that is artfully draped.  This shimmering skirt sparkles up the night and is sure to draw admiration.
The flower hat,  was an exclusive at Fiera Spring Fair.  The hat  is bold and beautiful adding an element of sophisticated glamour to this lovely gown.
The gown's lace bodice is punctuated with draped black silk that is tied with a bow at the side of this dress... making sure all your curves are accentuated.
Accessories are very important, especially when adding jewelry to such an amazing gown.  I have chosen to wear the new release by Zuri Rayna, of Zuri Jewelry Designs called Symphony Crystal V2- in Pink Opal, Onyx and Sterling.  This set comes with matching bracelets for each wrist.
The Cleopatra type necklace with matching earrings and ring add to the elegance of any formal look available on the grid.  It is beautifully textured and artfully created... and a must have for formal attire.  Now I await the arrival of Mr. X... I hope he is ready to dance the night away under a carpet of stars.
