The Pink Flamingo

In case you hadn’t heard, BishBox will be closing at the end of this round. While it has been a short run, I have really enjoyed this subscription box. They are going out with a Pin-up Girl theme, and what better way to show off my pin-up aspirations than on a 50’s themed sim?

If you love these shoes with optional socks from, you should rush over to Blush, which closes on the 28th. Cute, cute stuff at this event; sad, sad state is my wallet afterwards!

If you want to pick up any previous releases of BishBox, head to the headquarters. It all disappears September 19th, so hurry!

The Swan

I made myself a promise this week that I would head over to Le lac des cygnes (Swan Lake), home sim of blogger buddy Cougar Sangria. This sultry seductress isn’t just a pretty face (although you may argue that point when you see her header photo on her blog). She is an accomplished sim designer and landscape artist. By opening her home sim to the public, you can be fortunate enough to see her immaculate work.

I was taken by the serenity of the sim; the music soundtrack is classical tranquility and the flora and fauna are simply stunning. The manor house is beautiful, but truly, it is the grounds that held me captive. She says in her blog that over half of the prims used are for landscaping, and I will believe that. In fact, I was so taken by this lush field of flowers that the luscious lake didn’t even make it into the photo. I apologise for that…kinda. To see it, you will just need to pay a visit yourself.

I wanted a feminine background for the outfit I put together, so Le lac des cygnes and its gardens were the perfect setting. The delicate pink lingerie and stunning earrings, plus the dramatic eye makeup are all from the July round of BishBox, aptly themed, “Femme Fatale.” The lingerie from [Glitzz] comes in separate pieces with a huge array of textures to choose from, while the earrings (with matching necklace) from MINIMAL have both silver and gold options. These can easily become staple pieces.

Speaking of staple pieces, Annie Melson of *Just BECAUSE* has listened to her customers and created a lovely skirt that is designed to be worn over tight-fitting tops. With the difficulty of layering mesh, this makes this skirt a must-have. It comes with four options: sheer, sheer with panties, solid and solid with panties so you are covered (no pun intended) for any wardrobe eventuality. The “with panties” version is great for tops while the “no panties” version is perfect to wear with body suits. In fact, it was created as a request to have a complimentary skirt for the recently-released Isa bodysuit. If you don’t already have it, make sure you grab it when you stop by the main store to pick up this skirt. Oh, and you can still wear the skirt with midriff-baring tops; it just will be a bit looser around the waist.

Do visit Le lac des cygnes. It is a classic in its own right and well worth your time. Please be respectful of the rules and enjoy this idyllic setting.

Exit This Way

The June edition of BishBox is out with a theme of “Rock Rebel”. This round is as edgy as always, with a great selection for the fashion-forward female of Second Life.

Better associated with jewelry, MINIMAL offers a great tank top, well-rigged for the Maitreya Lara body. (Yummy) gives you a tough-chick choker and DAPPA fits the theme with the Misfit Tattoo. The ponytail from [NANI] gives you an “I don’t give a damn”, no-nonsense look that works perfectly with the Rebel set with poses from Come Soon Poses.

Head for the exit. It’s time to start rocking.
