Strapped

It amazes me how Salt of Salt & Pepper can take a pile of straps and turn it into a glorious garment. While her signature harnesses are always beautiful, the addition of this super tight pencil skirt made from leather and buckles left me with my jaw hanging low. These are just a few of the items that you can put together from her gacha goodies at the current round of Romp. Underneath the skirt I am wearing panties, a garter and stockings, plus there is a full skirt also available. Each piece comes in several colours, so make sure you break open your piggy bank before trying your luck.

I’m pretty sure you’ll end up strapped for cash, because you will want them all.

Daring The Tide

JustBECAUSE has a new main store release, the stunning Nessa swimsuit. This one piece is versatile, with two options, either solid or with a sheer midriff. The V-neck straps with a large ring as decoration gives this suit a very elegant edge, perfect for the beach or the catwalk. I tried this suit with the recently-released Isadore skirt, and it works as a perfect cover-up that can go from beach to party with only a brush of your hair. The suit and straps are HUD driven, so you can go with a single colour or a contrasting design (note: this option may only be available with the fatpack, as I have not tried the single colour suit).

If you look closely, you can see the lovely Starfish Beach Anklet, a group gift from !Rebel Hope. It is the perfect accessory for the fashion-conscious beach babe.

While I am relaxing on the beach, I really don’t want to get wet. I am daring the tide to stay away.

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

BishBox, a themed subscription box for the edgier women of Second Life has had some great themes since it began several months ago. I have to say, though, that the July box is my very favourite. The “Femme Fatale” theme is right in my wheelhouse and I love the slightly glamourous, slightly mysterious, totally sexy items.

As soon as I saw the scarf and sunglasses from (Yummy), I knew I had to create my style around them. This classically sexy dress from VARONIS, also from BishBox, was perfect for the look I wanted to create. I felt like a 50’s movie starlet as soon as I slid it on! In all honesty, I probably should have found a convertible and shot the photo flying down the highway, but 1.) That would have taken the focus away from my outfit and 2.) That’s a LOT of work! Instead, I wandered around the LEA sims (Linden Endowment for the Arts) and stumbled upon One Tree Hill (LEA7). This is a lovely sim, inspired by the album The Joshua Tree by U2. Through vignettes and signage, the creator tells the story of the songs. It is a nice place to wander, listen to the fantastic album via the in-world stream and just chill.

It worked for the photo, but I still want that convertible. It seems I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.
