Lovely LoveLace


In case you’ve missed it — LoveLace has been sprinkling lovely new merchandise on us … one set at a time. The first day of each release is priced at the terrific discount of 99L — so it is worth keeping an eye on what’s coming out 🙂 This isn’t one of the new releases that I’m wearing, tho — this is one of several older pieces that are also being offered at a nice discount. I adore all the LoveLace corsets — they are nicely done, and come with options, such as different colored chemises to wear underneath. I, of course, am wearing the most revealing… so I can show you the cleavage option on the beautiful Belleza skin 😉

If you do make it out to Vitamen, be sure to also check out their terrific monthly freebie on the second floor. Vitamen’s underwear is sexy, well-made, very affordable, and transferable!

60L Sunday at Angelwing & Sale at Sn@tch — Hurry!


One of the fun things about shopping some of the sales events, like 60L Sunday and the others, is finding great new-to-me stores. This adorable outfit is from Angelwing, a store that specializes in silks, but also has some gothic wear and club wear. This is a really nicely textured set, and it includes accessories and boots (not all shown in my picture). I love the somewhat burlesque look of it, and I definitely love the exuberant hot pink color! This is a great value even at its regular price — but run get it today for 60L!

By happy circumstance, one of my favorite jewelry sets from Sn@tch was the perfect match for this set. Sn@tch is currently having an amazing sale that everyone needs to get to. I know you are saying to yourself — how can Sn@tch’s prices get any more affordable?!? Sale’s on ’til tomorrow, I believe — so hurry!

Happy 2nd Anniversary TRUBBLE!!


One of the true pleasures of sticking around Second Life for an extended period of time is to watch and live through changes, growth, history-being-made. And though change can be sad at times, we can’t let it steal our joy of the good things we have now. It has been my great pleasure to have gotten acquainted with Tracy Rubble way back when … as she was working hard to get her brand off the ground. And I’m honored to be able to celebrate her upcoming 2 year anniversary with her! One of my dear friends Iva just told me a couple of days ago “I’m not a genius, I just persevere”. The fact of the matter is that that statement is true for the vast majority of successful people in all walks of life. Tracy Rubble is one of the most persevering designers I’ve had the joy of knowing. I know it hasn’t always been easy … and I know the last two years have had their share of heartaches, both RL and SL. But, Tracy has kept her good humor, and has kept plugging away like the little engine that could 🙂 Congratulations, Tracy — looking forward to many more years on the grid together~

I’m pleased to show you today her just-released February dollarbie — this adorable cami and panty set — perfect for the valentine season. Tracy’s finishing and shading skills have really advanced over the last couple of years, and this lovely set is a great example! I couldn’t quite leave well enough alone, of course — and styled it with a lot of fun pieces from my inventory clean out project. A little off-beat, granted — but it made me smile 🙂

Be sure to get over to Trubble and pick up this dollarbie before the end of the month — and check out her other stuff while you’re there!
