Swim With Kim.

A recent visit to Kim had me day dreaming about the Maldives, cocktails, massages at the spa and snorkeling through crystal waters.  The designer/owner of Kim, Kimberley Flagon,  makes the most amazing swimwear and as you can see, with just a little accessorizing, you can cut a swathe of fabulousness throughout the resort.

Kim has so much more than swimwear and has been operating since May 2009.  God knows how I missed this gem of a store but hey, it's a big world. 

People do really need to lighten up in SL.  The other day I was tp'ing to a well known shopping sim that I wasn't aware had closed.  I unfortunately tp'd on the verandah of somebody's home and got hit by lag.  I keep receiving messages from the home owner saying 'why are you in my house?', 'don't you know this is my land?', 'go away' and was finally ejected.  I was completely frozen so couldn't respond to explain that she just happened to now be living in the same spot as a very popular shopping center. I did look at her profile afterwards however and saw that she was 2 weeks old.  She'll learn :-))

Her Name Was Lola.

I love a bit of vintage and a trip to Vita Bella fits the bill when I want some screen goddess glamor.  I found this gorgeous Lola dress in red and black that just oozes old world style.  The luster of the skirt and shirt is lovely and a dream to photograph.  At just $250 L for the outfit, it's great value.  If you want to get in touch with your inner Veronica Lake or Marilyn Monroe, among many other glamor's of yesteryear, go check out Vita Bella.

The amazing Spanish Hat is a freebie from BaObA and I totally encourage those of you who haven't had the pleasure of seeing a BaObA creation to run along for some millinery magic.

The shoes are fab-tastic creations from Similar Footwear called Genova.  Seriously inspired styling and when considering the difference in price from some other shoe designers, are a great price for such quality at $900L a pair.  Hey and look at that sexy rear and lovely zipper work.

I threw on my CheerNo Diamond Gloves (short version) and wore Pearl Earrings in gold from Beauty Code to carry on the circle theme.  Here is the new release called Starlight from Vanity Hair for $300L.

Skin:  Jadis V2 from Glam Affair.
Eyes: Pale Blue from Fashism.
Lashes: From Apple May Designs.

Run your cursor over the shop names for a limo :-)

My Big Black Dress from Sascha's Designs.

Sasha Frangilli, designer and owner of Sascha's Designs sent me this formal gown she named Pencarrow early in the month and I'm afraid I have been MIA since I received it.  As I've stated in my blog blurb, in the main I blog what I like rather than 'road test' items.  This may change if I want to take the blog in another direction, but for the moment I continue to enjoy putting together looks I like.  Whilst I'm not a big gown wearer, I did have fun styling this classic black formal that I consider another quality item from Sascha's.

And she wore:
Skin: Lola from LeLutka.
Hair base and attachment: From Paper Couture.
Lashes: Ultimate Lashes from Apple May Designs.
Dress: Pencarrow in Black from Sascha's Designs.
Hat: Miss Galaxy Red Hat by BaoBa.
Earrings: Manhattan by Eclectica.
Bangles: Pearl Rain in Onyx by Mandala.
Ring: Moria Ring from Morantique Lush
Clutch: Chanel in Red by DeLa.
Nails: Pixel Mode.
Eyes: Sunrise Eyes in Pale Mint from Fashiasm.
