Early Winter...

"It's sad the map of the world is on you
The moon gravitates around you
The seasons escape you...
And I always was one for crying
I always was one for tears
No I never was one for lying
You've lied to me all of these years
The sun's getting cold it's snowing
Looks like an early winter for us..."

"Early Winter" by Gwen Stefani

I'm born and bred in the midwest, and anybody who's lived or spent time here knows that this time of year it's COLD. And not that California/Florida whiney 50 degree cold either. I'm talking I woke up this morning to 7 degrees. Needless to say, beautiful outerwear is essential for me in both worlds.The Long Cardi in Brown by {SMS} is my latest addiction. It couldn't be more perfect and I'm having a hard time taking it off. Everything from the collar to the sleeves, the length and the texture-this is the most gorgeous cardigan in SL. If you dig it like I do, then you better grab it fast: it's limited edition and only available until the 9th of December...

Uptown Girl...

"I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday, when my ship comes in
She'll understand the kind of guy I've been...
And when she's walkin'
She's lookin' so fine
And when she's talkin'
She'll say she's all mine
She'll say I'm not so tough
Just because I'm in love
With an Uptown Girl..."

Pretty Girl Rock...

"Pretty as a picture
Sweeter than a swisher
Mad cause I'm cuter

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun...

"Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls, they wanna have fun...
Oh girls just wanna have fun
That's all they really want..."

"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper

In matters of personal style, everyone is different. As for me-the way I know I love a piece, is if I find myself not wanting to take it off. And that's what has occurred with this structurely PERFECT dress by Maylee Oh of "The Secret Store." I don't want to take it off my body. The drape of the fabric, the slight movement and flow of it when I walk; this is sculpt work done RIGHT. Equipped with resizer scripts in every prim, it was easy to fit and definitely a pleasure to find. Of course you know I styled it up, but it's a strong enough piece to make a statement on its own...

 Maylee's store did something that alot of brands don't do for me: it made me SMILE. It isn't packed full of items, which to me indicates a designer who puts a little bit of her heart and soul into her work. I'm not knocking labels that mass produce pieces, but to me-quality always defeats quantity. Maylee's work is whimsical and FUN. Bright colors, bows, and vivid prints are included in everything that she produces. I'm showing you her "Scottish Dahlia" dress today, but you can count on seeing more in the future. Oh and by the way, she's just opened a satellite store in the EUPHORIA shopping complex; visit "The Secret Store" @ EUPHORIA HERE...

Rich Girl...

"If I was a rich girl
Nana nana nana nana nana nana nana naaaa
See I'd have all the money in the world
If I was a wealthy girl...
No man could test me-or impress me
My cash flow would never ever end
See I'd have all the money in the world
If I was a wealthy girl..."

"Rich Girl" by Gwen Stefani
The "Rhea" Poncho by [LeLutka]

I hadn't intended on documenting this look, but when Tairo saw me in it he said "I like that fit baby, you look like a rich girl." And as usual, he was right. The ensemble definitely looks rich, and it's due to this exquisitely crafted poncho by LeLutka. Boasting a built in ao to control your arms, it's quickly become one of my favorite statement pieces in my wardrobe; and I can honestly say there's nothing else on SL quite like it...

"SEXY, baby SEXY
You know I've just got to be SEXY
Cause all over the world that we live
Everybody wants a little SEXY thang
I just want to be what you want me to be...
And yes, I can take a little pain
I'm not your typical American girl
I'm gonna take this sex appeal
And reveal it to the sex starved world
I know they are just hungry for me..."

"SEXY" by Klymaxx
The "Shattered" Ensemble by {Meghindo's}

Let's talk about POWERHOUSES. And by powerhouses I mean brands that continuously produce high-quality, show stopping, jaw dropping pieces, items and ensembles-time after time. If you're living under a rock and have never heard of {Meghindo's} then I encourage you to climb out from under it and join us in 2010. Meg's designs are always SEXY, yet sophisticated and polished. If I could pay her a flat fee every month and have her newest releases sent to me (sight unseen), I'd gladly do it.  She NEVER disappoints in the quality of her work, her knowledge of real life designers, her creativity, and maybe most importantly-her KINDNESS. She's very sweet and generous; she's gifted me with her work in the past. However it's my belief that even designers on your friends list have to make a LIVING, so I will ALWAYS pay for her work, even if she gifts me with it too. If there's a problem with anything she'll fix it right away. And if she's in her shop while you're there, if you want to see something on before you purchase it, she'll gladly try it on for you. I'm sure we've all encountered designers that aren't so friendly and approachable; Meg's personality and willingness to provide the best possible shopping experience to us is like a breath of fresh air. Visit {Meghindo's} HERE, it's truly the epitome of SEXY...

I wore these gold earrings from the photo while out shopping with a friend yesterday morning, and within an hour I was literally stopped 4 times with inquiries about the designer. Well they're from [glow] Studio, and they are PERFECTION. The attention to detail Linka pays to her jewelry never ceases to amaze me. She makes pieces that are timeless yet always fashion-forward. [glow] Studio is definitely another POWERHOUSE that doesn't get the attention it deserves. Sunglasses. Earrings. Necklaces. Bracelets. Hats. Purses. Gloves. Clothes. Poses. Makeup. Lashes. Did I miss anything? Probably, but you get the point. It is THE accessory house of SL in my opinion, and their work with "The Dressing Room" projects is remarkable as well. Visit [glow] studio HERE

And while we're on the subject of POWERHOUSES, am I the only one that's noticed how EXQUISITE the hair by Amutey DeCuir of Bliss Couture is? Already a powerhouse in gowns, bridal, accessories and casual wear, she has solidified herself as THE premiere spot for all things updo in second life. Mhm I said it. She's absolutely KILLING the game with her hair. It's always elegant and refined, but there's a twist of contemporary edge to it that makes it unlike anything I've ever seen before. The hair I'm wearing is called "Anne" and it's one of (if not THE) most well made formal hairstyles I've ever owned. Visit Bliss Couture Hair can thank me later.

And to round out this POWERHOUSE post, let's talk about the beautiful Launa Fauna of L.Fauna. So many ladies have SWORN by her skin for a long time now; always highly detailed and unique, it's the type of skin you won't ever want to take off. It's no secret that my husband Tairo is my primary skin provider (thank you baby ;) but I've recently become OBSESSED with Launa's lipsticks. The textures are so realistic and the colors are glossy (but not TOO glossy-not 'I just finished eating fried chicken' glossy.) She makes damn near an entire rainbow of shades, I'm in love with them all especially the 'Black' I'm wearing here. And most of all, they're REASONABLY PRICED: about 25L per color or 60L for a set of 3. Thanks Launa for doing what you do. Visit her store, L.Fauna HERE.

Do you LOVE this dress as much as I do? Well it's {Meghindo's} and it's FREE...
Just join her in-world group, teleport to the shop,and it's yours baby...what are you waiting for?

"...Intelligent too ooh you're my sweetheart
I've always liked my women book AND street smart
As long as they got a little class like half days
And the confidence to overlook my past ways
Time heals all and heels hurt to walk in
But they go with the clutch that you carry your lipgloss in
And look I really think nobody does it better
I love the way that you put it together..."

Rock Star 101...

"Six inch walker...Big sh*t talker
I never play the victim...I'd rather be a stalker
So baby take me in...I disobeyed the law
Make sure you frisk me good-Check my panties and my bra
Wildin' out...The crazy house
With my straight jacket on-Won't you come and sign me out
To be WHAT YOU IS you gotta be WHAT YOU ARE...
Only thing I'm missin' is a black guitar..."

Flight School...

" Just forget everything that you know
Let's take it all the way back to hello
They say you livin' like you died before
I got a place that only I can go...

You've never been so high kiss the ground goodbye

Only Girl In The World...

"Want you to make me feel like...
Like I'm the only girl in the world
Like I'm the only one that you'll ever love
Like I'm the only one that knows your heart
Only girl in the world...
Like I'm the only one that's in command
Cause I'm the only one that understands
Just how to make you feel like a man..."

"Only Girl In The World" by Rihanna

CheerNo has been outfitting some of the grid's most fashion forward males for a long time now. Everytime I see a guy in their pieces I am impressed with the quality and detail of work. So it's not shocking that I am equally (if not more) enamored with the stylings of CheerNo FEMME. In terms of "statement pieces", I believe CheerNo FEMME to be at the top of their game. Everything is so sophisticated and edgy, structured and crisp. I'm wearing one of their Annie Jackets, which is available in several different colors/patterns. It's the type of jacket that could go over jeans or leggings, and even complete a little black cocktail dress. The power shoulders and lovely draping are classic yet modern simultaneously. Aleta Scatter has hit the nail on the head with this one, and I can't wait to show you more of the powerhouse that is CheerNo soon...
