Nicki Remembers

As soon as I tried on these panties, I had the lyrics to “Darling Nikki” by Prince running through my head and I just had to grind! Of course, I can’t do it quite like I used to, so this photo was taken as I was panting and desperately trying to recover.

The panties are actually magic; they have been designed to work with every skirt by Just BECAUSE from the end of July into the future. Currently, Annie Melson provides two versions of her skirts – one without panties and one with them in-built. This new pair gives you the option of adding them whenever you want to, without having to have two versions of the same skirt in your inventory. They come in a fatpack only, but there are 75 textures in the HUD, so you’ll be able to match any skirt she releases. And, they’re amazing just by themselves!

And everyone knows, when you’re grinding in your knickers, you’ve got to have long, lustrous hair to swing with you. The Lina hair by [NANI] from the July round of BishBox fits the bill and is even swept back, keeping your face free of those annoying flyaways.

The final piece to the puzzle is a pair of sexy come-get-me sandals, provided by fri.day. These sexy heels are available at the birthday round of Uber and definitely give your calves that stretch you need for the perfect strut.

After getting your groove on, you can just recline in a becoming manner and remember those words:

Come back Nikki, come back
Your dirty little Prince
Wants to grind grind grind grind grind grind grind grind grind

Lu Is Back!

After a hiatus from creating in Second Life, Luana Dawg is back with her brand, Kuro. I have missed Lu’s quirky style and I am thrilled to see she has returned with a rebuild of her Microapartment. It is a cozy, two-room build with lovely detail. I am hoping this is just the first of many great things to come.

[ keke ] also has released recolours of her Gustavian console table and the lovely refurbished spring drawer, which was originally found in the February Deco(c)rate subscription box. They work well together or of course, on their own. They are available at her main store, along with a lot of the other things you can see in the photo, so do a little browsing when you stop in to pick up these goodies. In addition, she has created the spring sprout set for the Mad Easter Egg Hunt. I haven’t done this hunt, but it is a collective hunt with more prizes released the more people play and find eggs. Check out the link for full details.

The Liaison Collaborative should be open by the time I publish this post. The theme of “Rainy Days” is perfect for April and there are loads of showery-themed pretties at the event, including these from Serenity Style and Sway’s. Stop by for your April gear, and don’t forget your umbrella!

Of Puppies, Poufs and Pom-Poms

1-heart-pouf-sm

A bit of a romantic vintage look today, thanks to the beautiful creations from 22769 ~ [bauwerk], Apple Fall, {what next}, [ keke ] and more. There are several romance-themed events going on this month, and The Liaison Collaborative is a standout. But don’t forget about the joy of wandering into a main store to see the latest releases and perhaps finding a vintage gem. [ keke ] has a few recent main store releases, along with classics you may have missed before. My photo shows several of these hidden treasures; you will just have to visit to get them for yourself.

I found myself relaxing in this vintage room, dreaming romantic dreams…filled with puppies, poufs and pom-poms.
