HANDverk released two beautiful skyboxes that I am thoroughly impressed with.

The  Longchamp skybox is HANDverk’s first store release of 2013 available in the single and double.  The Longchamp is a simple, elegant, all mesh skybox for either residential or commercial use. It is ultra low prim and the single size can fit on as small as a 512 sq.m. parcel.

What immediately came to mind when I rezzed the skyboxes on our sim was that it could be so many different things! I will be using it for a library/study as well as a vacation apartment.  You can utilize it in so many ways and at the low prim count it is sure to appeal to many different needs.

Going with the study first, I packed it full of Dutchie furniture, wanting to highlight the elegant spaciousness of the skybox itself and to focus on the mesh version of the maledom chair that Dutchie has packed full of animations to enjoy.

As many of you already know, this weekend was GOS Boutique’s first release of this exceptional open toed line.  I dubbed it GOStastic Saturday, and sent Mrs. Raynier to buy all the fatpacks!  It was worth every single penny.  The shoes are exquisite but the added convenience of GOS’s fluid and fast new ONEtime skin matching hud makes it so the frustration is gone from wearing beautiful shoes.

Mrs. Raynier has always had a hard time matching her skin to her shoes, something always seeming off and her grumbling and cursing can be heard throughout our sim!  But those days are gone.  She loaded the hud up, hit configure, picked her Belleza skin, hit sync and wallah she was matched to perfection.

The photo below has absolutely NO Photoshopping done to the ankles or shoes.  The only place I used PS was to smooth out a line in the library stack and by the ceiling.  The shoes are that damn good!

For in depth coverage of the new GOS Boutique line, please check out the official blog and the great posts from my fellow lady bloggers Harlow Heslop Strawberry Singh.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to get my lovely wife stripped naked save for the shoes!

Vintage Fair Preview-Gizza & SSP: Painting The Town Red

After a great anniversary, Mrs. Raynier & I are tired!  She kept me up all night! As you can see, we know how to have a grand night on the town.  Who said getting married made you boring has not spent time with us!

I have more wonderful Vintage Fair 2012 previews for you today.

This extraordinary ensemble by Gizza was a must have for my closet.  I love bow-ties, I love hats and I love to look dapper!  You can’t go wrong with classic black and white, for a myriad of occasions so I urge you fellas to snatch this one up, you’ll get quite a bit of use out of it.

We enjoyed a private evening in this highly detailed prop room from Sparrowtree Studios.  This has the old French Quarter, New Orleans  feel to it, an exclusive club with a VIP room meant for all the pleasures of the night you can dream of.  The next opportunity you get to paint the town, snatch it up and make it a wild one!
