Anchors Aweigh

1 Newport Kala sm

More Newport News.

The Liaison Collaborative is in full swing now, with tons of fashion, decor and poses for you. In case you’re wondering, TLC has switched back to all product types in each round, rather than splitting between fashion and home & garden. I like this; it means you can decorate in the same theme as your outfit, all in one easy shopping experience!

Today I’m going to focus on the top from NX-Nardcotix and the pose prop from Le Poppycock. Each top comes in both an opaque and sheer version, so you can either be chaste and fashionable or daring and fashionable! Or, you can probably use the sheer version as a cover up, but hey, nothing wrong with letting the girls get a little discreet air 😉 I like this traditional anchor-stripe design, personally, but there are multiple choices, all of which are beach-themed and lovely, so I have no doubt there is a style for you.

What I love most about the dock and pose from Le Poppycock is that it comes in both a rezzable and a wearable version. I emphasised the “wearble” bit because it allows you to use your prop on sims where you don’t have rez rights. And of course, you can edit it for your height and to get just the right angle for yourself. I do advise that you not try to walk around while wearing it; Nobody wants to be pushed off the dock into the water – mobile phones still aren’t fully waterproof and you wouldn’t want to have to pay someone’s dry cleaning bill for your awkwardness.

The Liaison Collaborative runs through June 30, so weigh anchor and sail over for the summer!

Shy Glance

1 Shy Glance sm

So, I had been trying to find the perfect setting for this sexy lingerie from NX-Nardcotix and come-get-me heels from fri.day all weekend. I’d tried several shoots at my home and on my platform, putting up buildings, props and trying out loads of poses, but it just wasn’t working. I decided to change clothes and take a break, heading over to Furillen to check out the newly erected Bar Cafe Fabriken. In its current incarnation, it is a blues club and I just fell in love. It feels like it has been around forever, when in actuality, it had only been there for less than a day.

As I wandered upstairs to check out the photographs, I realised I was not only alone in the bar, but on the sim. When I reached the corner where this photo hangs, I had my “Aha!” moment of the day and quickly stripped down to my undies. A quick trial of the {NANTRA} Effortless set, and I had my pose sorted. I played around with my camera angle and lighting and started taking my shots. I was so engrossed in the moment, it took me a while to realise I was no longer alone.

With a shy glance over my shoulder, I realised it was time to go. So I teleported home, dressed in more appropriate street wear (i.e., not streetwalker attire) and headed back to hang out…as if I hadn’t just been strutting my stuff in my lingerie moments before 😉

The lingerie and pose set are available at The Liaison Collaborative and the shoes can be found at Collabor88. You know you want them. I guarantee you need them. Slip them on and you’ll be catching a few shy – or not so shy – glances of your own.
