Oh someone in SL please have a disco retro party because I have a "far out" "outta sight" outfit to wear by irrISIStible called Disco Diva. It is so much fun with its psychedelic colors of bright pink, orange, blue and lime green to wear --
One great thing about this Disco Diva is that it is made for classic avatars and also comes with appliers for Maitreya, Slink and Omega making this something that anyone on the grid can wear regardless of what type of body they are using.
And, best of all, this outfit comes loaded making it a joy to wear as all the styling has been expertly done for you ! And talk about details... from the flower power belt and the hud of floating flowers to the platform shoes embellished by flowers and the flowing sleeves and pant legs, this outfit rocks!
I paired this outfit with exclusive make-up by Alma called Tropical Island that is also an exclusive at Swank. It is colorful and vibrant and really enhances this fab disco style. Oh, did I mention that this fabulous hair and headband is also part of the package by irrISIStible? It is and its so retro cool!
I love classic style dresses - they never get old in my opinion! Especially the exclusive at this month's Swank Retro Mania event by Byrne called Shrimpton. This will teach people about the "art" of double take! Yes, you will get a double look in this dress. Synapses will fire. I must remember to flutter my eyes!
I love this classic sleeveless cutout 60's style box top and pencil skirt with its elegant swirl polka dot
pattern. Comes with matching round ball drop earrings that completes this 60s vibe.
I love the sheen of this hop dress -- the subtle way it catches the light is so pretty... Mr. X can't wait to take me for a spin on the dance floor. Shrimpton is made for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya bodies and is available in black, grey, white (worn) lime (worn), violet (worn) and berry.
I love the new hair by Emo-tions called Sana... it is perfect for this dress. It has soft tendrils that sweep the cheeks of your face, a side tight bun and a beautiful peacock feather that can be attached (or not). It really adds a retro vibe that works with outfits from the 1920s through the 1970s.
Mr. X, do you remember the day a butterfly flew to our window? Her fragile wings were so colorful and yet so pale in the morning light-- a natural mosaic...the gentle beating of her wings reminded me of the way you kiss my eyelids at dawn...do you remember?
Today, I have decided to wear something to celebrate the summer and butterflies and found the perfect new outfit by Ghee that is an exclusive at Designers Showcase through August 31 called Butterfly Tied Blouse. What makes this outfit really stand out is the beautiful butterfly texture on the matching midriff crop top that ties at the waist in the front. Surely wearing this you will turn heads as you float onto the grid on butterfly wings...
Be prepared to wow the guys with this highly detailed pair of cotton mini shorts by Ghee. The shorts and the top, sold separately are made for mesh bodies and come in a multitude of colors including pink, green, periwinkle, yellow, graphite, lilac, peach and porcelain.
This outfit is made for many mesh bodies including: Maitreya/Lara, Belleza, Isis, Slink, Freya, Physique, Hourglass, and Venus. A matching pair of moc croc sandals made for belleza, maitreya and slink high feet are also sold separately.
I have paired this outfit with new hair by Emo-tions called Violetta that is an exclusive at the Liaison Collaborative. It comes with a special applier for catwa and letuka mesh heads. Best of all this cool and casual style come with a hairband that has a color changing hud making it easy to wear with so many looks in SL.
Meet me when the moon is in the shape of the horns of the goddess Hathor and the breeze is sweet like crushed mint... oh how I wait for that night... Tonight, the sky is dark -- the stars glimmer -- lighting up the heavens with a sparkle...like god striking a match across the ceiling of a cathedral.
I dance and swirl by the scared red leaves...begging for him to come... watching my thoughts flow on the breeze... my passions... he is like a tornado...and often talks to me in whispers...a gentle balm -- nourishing me...I remember petals -- smooth... soft... floating around me...
Look for the Butterfly Queen and sing the Psalm of Soraya... then you will find what you seek... deep in a fern filled grotto. Look for the pink light... and follow it ... listen for the tinkling sound of silver chains... they call to you -- a bird in flight....night flight...to the stars...
Now I see, rose petals are all around --- yesterday's sweet kisses... are still on my lips... rapture fills my heart... my secret burns brightly deep within me... a flame... and I recall his face as dawn slowly evaporates to day...leaving sweet silver chains of flowers and butterflies in my hair...
Furniture that dates to the 1950s is called mid-century modern and is organic in form and not real formal. At this month's Swank, I found a fabulous mid-century furniture set offered by Wood Works Designs, mostly from the Franklin Retro Collection. The simple lines, the use of textures and colors and the accessories from the 1940s radio to the spiral sun clock make this set a must have. I have paired this furniture with a fab dress by GiuliaDesign called Marilyn.
The Mercury Row Campanelli styled coffee table included with this set is pure retro perfection. It will be the centerpiece of the room. The aesthetic beauty and curvaceous form of this kidney bean shape table elicits an artistic appeal while maintaining a proportional balance. I especially like this coffee table next to the hip cube chair; another popular chair style in the 1950s.
I love the classic lines of the sectional couch with its trim button tufted back and new "saddle" shaped arms. It is upholstered in true 1950s style in palomino plastic made by the Bolta-Felx company, known for its durability! The couch is loaded with single his and her poses and even allows you to drink some bubbly! The couch also has a really sweet selection of cuddle poses...oh la la. I love all the details on the coffee table including the gourd shaped lamp, marble ashtray and box of cigars... smoke them outside please Mr. X !
To keep in the mid century mode, especially next to the fantastic gold and ebony starburst wall clock, I found the most fantastic retro dress by GiuliaDesign called Marilyn that is also an exclusive at Swank. I love the soft narrow shoulders of this dress and the silver double buttons on the midriff that show off my thin "wasp" waist. The fancy collar adds a dash of drama to this dress.
Marilyn naturally creates a sexy silhouette with its tight sheath skirt and sexy, low cut bodice made of silk shantung making it casually elegant. This dress is made for all mesh bodies (belleza, maitreya, isis, slink and fit mesh) and comes with a brown, red, purple,pink, grey or blue top and a black skirt. Boots for mesh high feet (maitreya, slink, belleza, fit mesh) are also included along with glasses and a necklace.
As I mentioned, Marilyn comes with a beautiful pearl, diamond and citrine art deco necklace. This necklace adds elegance to this outfit. To top off the retro look, this dress also comes with the coolest milk colored cat eye glasses studded with aquamarines, Mr. X loves the way the gems match my eyes, so do I. These accessories really complete the look. I am also wearing really cool hand jewelry by *elise* love and hate... pretty basic but oh so much fun (notice the wine is in the love hand!) They are made for vista and Maitreya (worn) bento mesh hands. Mr. X the bubbly is open... let's toast the mid century -- it is all the rage!

There is something back to the future about retro events... don't you think? It makes me feel that way anyway...and they are always so much fun... because you can live in the past so to speak for a few hours... regardless if you are a hipster, hippie or beatnick. "Can you dig it?"
I fell in love with this "groovy" outfit by Jumo called Marion. It is billows and sways in the breeze... you will have a "blast" wearing it... I love the floral texture and the sexy transparent waistline. Like most of Jumo's offerings, this is a complete look that comes with earrings and a gold necklace that is really "choice".
Best of all, Marion comes with an amazing 25 color changing hud and is made for is a Rigged Mesh dress and panties for mesh bodies, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP and Slink bodies. The poses are also an exclusive @ Swank by Diva Couture called Retro and this set of 13 are outta sight!
Best of all, Marion comes with an amazing 25 color changing hud and is made for is a Rigged Mesh dress and panties for mesh bodies, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP and Slink bodies. And, if you can remember anything about the 1960s then you probably weren't there-- or so they say!
I am just out of rl hospital and just starting to get back into the swing of things... sorta... and what better way to start... than with this retro 60s hip mini dress by Luxe Paris that is an exclusive at this month's Swank. So this is a shout out to all you hipsters!
The dress is called Mondrian. I love the bold and brash colors of this dress that contrast and compliment. I also love the simplicity of the shift style dress that is retro cool and fits in perfectly with this month's Swank theme - retro chic.
Mondrian is perfect example of pop art on fabric... a 1960s classic look that is sure to turn heads in SL.
This round marks the 5th anniversary for Cosmopolitan...how time flies! This event runs through August 12. [Aleutia] has just released a flirty dress called Lan that is as breezy as a cool summer afternoon and oh so chic and Emo-tions has released Ginger a new bob styled hair - both are exclusives at Cosmopolitan.
I love the cut out top and that adds a touch of spice. The cinched waist is embellished with a slim belt that adds an elegant flourish to the cute summer frock. Like all of Aleutia's designs, this dress comes with their signature 30 color hud. Lan is created exclusively for Maitreya mesh bodies.
You can change the color of the skirt, top, belt and buckle with the 30 color hud -- it is so much fun. I am just in love with this hair by Emo-tions called Ginger that is also an exclusive @ Cosmopolitan... this long hip bob is trending right now and is perfect with this dress.
It is that time of year again -- when the land becomes hot and dry --- a khamsin is sweeping the land.... at sunset it turns the sky red with the dust creating -- afterglow ...bringing back memories of lovemaking -- for hours --
I wait for Mr. X to arrive --- I cannot wait for his warm embrace What shall I wear to beguile... I look to CW, Celestinas Weddings. Sofia has created a new mesh gown called Lis -- it's beautiful in an airy champagne color with gorgeous lace insets. I love the slit up the front of the gown and the low back.
Mr. X loves the details of the neckline with its elegant diamond necklace that adds elegance to this gorgeous gown. I feel like an enchantress because Liz evokes a beautiful, sexy silhouette...in champagne. This gown also comes in Summer Roses and is made for all mesh bodies including classic, belleza, fit mesh, slink and maitreya.
