Events are a blast in SecondLife, I enjoy them greatly, and have gotten pretty methodical about my shopping.  You see, I not only go shop for myself, but I make a list of all the things I want to buy Mrs. Raynier.  It is always a great perk when a vendor has gifting options that way I can send her all the things!  We then head on over to the event and shop together, pointing out what we like what colors or patterns we prefer.  If the event is ultra crowded we wait a few days so we can go together.

I have had conversations here and there with other residents about events in SL and often they do not know where to keep track of what is going on, or haven’t heard about certain events on the proverbial SL street.  I always point residents to SeraphimSL and urge them to add Seraphim to their RSS reader or subscribe in some fashion to keep up to date with the events they cover.

Another hang-up some residents have mentioned, and this is mainly the guys, feeling there is nothing at those events for the dudes.  Not true!  For example, this round of Collabor88 has Atro Patena putting out a new version of Nicholas, aptly named Nicholas II.  We also of course thankfully have the amazing event The Men’s Department which has been a fantastic event for men BUT not limited to just the male gender.  That’s what I love about events, you can find a little of everything at most of them, it just takes a little looking around and often the courage to look outside the box.

Take this great bow-tie necklace from Yummy, you may approach it with the thought that it is for girls only, well I challenge that and say nay, it’s for anyone that it fits their style, and we all know how much I love my bow-ties in real life and SL, so for me it was a must wear.

Think outside the box and dare to be yourself, no matter what the packaging shows, if it appeals to you, wear it!

Collabor88 September Preview: Round My Hometown, Memories Are Fresh

The 8th of the month is fast approaching and you know what that means, Collabor88 time!  I have the privilege and absolute honor to bring you a sneak peek of this round of Collabor88.  I was thrilled to see Barnesworth Anubis created this extremely detailed and just gorgeous New Orleans Studio.  As with all BA builds you get the lush textures, roomy areas to roam and call home.  My hometown is New Orleans so you can imagine how excited I was to rez it on my land and share it with you.

Late Night On Maudlin Street

August continues to be very busy for events and covering them.  I may need a vacation after this week is over!  That or I seriously need a few clones.

I liked to add decor and furnishings to the house that catch my eye and add a realism to my environment.  For The Mens Dept, Kaz Nayar, brilliant mind behind PILOT created the Bridges Bar Cart.  It is mesh of course, and only 7 land impact!  One single item, and all that detail, not to mention at a ridiculously low price at TMD this month.  This piece is a particular favorite of mine due to the simple fact it is rather timeless.  I could have put it in a shot to cover some more vintage goodness, or  placed it in a VIP room of a club.  Versatile decor is what I have grown to expect but more so appreciate from PILOT.

You’ve been starin at my boots havent you?  Me too, they are pretty amazing.  New mesh J’s Studded Long boots by JD Gazov are a blast from my past with the style and studs, I had to have them.  With a simple easy menu to control the boot tops, you have options to have them straight, lowered or flopped down.  They come in several colors and fit like a glove.

Also, I have some news to share.  You can now find my posts on Style Academy.  Thank you Teshan Wycliffe for the warm welcome.  

Now, off to get some groceries for a late afternoon lunch!

The Mens Dept-August: I Promise You I Will

August 2012 has been the busiest month of my SecondLife!  How many events do we have going right now and more to come when the 8th rolls around.  The Mens Dept August collection is just superb.  This is still my favorite event as it offers a little bit of everything for the men yet versatile enough to have many unisex items for everyone to enjoy.

One creator that I discovered about a month ago has really impressed me from day one.  Tegan Sara of floorplan creates the type of home decor and furnishings that I just adore.  From fun colored dressers to catchy little wall message boards, I have had a great time decorating with floorplan items.  You can get an amazing steal of a deal at The Mens Dept this month from floorplan, and Tegan just added an additional color set.

I am very fond of Cracked Mirror’s mens line.  I made sure my shy genes were stuck in a vault so I could rave to her about the shirt and shorts she has out at The Mens Dept this round.  I love a short sleeved shirt, and one made of mesh, with proper rolled sleeves that do not bulk into your body or leave gaps of space, and a tie to boot, yeah Cracked you rocked this shirt hard lady and I’m gonna wear them till they have holes in them!

I coupled my ensemble with man items from FaMESHed another amazing event that I never miss.  I hope you are enjoying the amazing packed full of events month of August, stay tuned for more items from the grids fabulous event organizers and creators.

Please note that The Mens Dept moved next to the space they had in July.  You can follow my links to the new location!

Vintage Fair Preview-evolve & 22769: We Could Be Heroes

Only a couple more days until  Vintage Fair 2012 opens!  BellaStarr Fheng aka Bella of evolve poses has created and exclusive for Vintage Fair that I had a great time using in this photograph.  I love evolve poses, they are versatile, flow beautifully and it’s no surprise as Bella is an amazing photographer.

From the moment I saw Bella’s ad I knew what I wanted to do, the image started forming.  Add this great mesh army shirt from the talented boys at 22769 and that image in my mind came to full light. The end result is not too shabby!
