Lush by CoCo has contributed a brand new line for .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week and it is sexy, fierce, and one of a kind!  I’ve found it rather difficult to find swimsuits I actually adore in SL, but i can honestly say that this collection takes the cake!  With a bohemian, sexy feel in finely made mesh, this is just one of several designs in the summer Lush by CoCo line which I couldn’t resist playing dress up in!  This particular set includes some beautiful slink shoes for the mid-height foot, which coordinate perfect with Loovus Dzevavor accessories.  Find your summer sunshine-y bliss in Lush by CoCo…

The 2014 Colour of Couture Earth Hour Challenge



Hi again lovelies!  So I am quite behind in my blogging assignments of late and it dawned on me that I am WAY overdue to share one of the most important ones of all!  Here is my styling for the “Earth Hour Challenge” in this years Colour of Couture Top Model Competition.  Can you tell I had a lot of fun with this one?  The Earth Hour show took place on March 22nd (see I’m only a month late), and was quite an event.  As you can see there were countless designers sponsoring the event, and it was the live runway debut of the Colour of Couture candidates.  Our challenge?  “FOR EARTH HOUR YOU WILL STYLE COSMO COUTURE. THIS WILL BE FUN AND WILD SO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX HOWEVER; YOU WILL HAVE TO USE YOUR PRIMARY COLORS OF BLUE/GREEN TO REPRESENT THE EARTH.”  I hope you enjoy my interpretation.


Style Card:

Dress: Eshi Otawara “Deadly Kitten” in Blue
Jewelery Set: Finesmith “Walk Like an Egyptian”
Face Jewelery: Eshi Otawara “Shakti Face Jewelery”
Hair: Discord Designs “Bobbi” in Intense Unnaturals (Marine)
Earth Globe by Dexx Magic
Shoes: Azoury “Chromatics Ballet Heels Shoe” in Dark Forest
Skin: Deesses Skins “Amanda” in Cappucino
Lipstick: MUA “Bicolor” Gift in Silver/ Blue
Blush: Dead Apples “Contour Blush” in Peach Dark
Eyes: IKON “Eternal Eyes” in Mahogany

 With this styling I tried to blend organic elements of the Earth with both cosmic and spiritual elements. I wanted my outfit to reflect the fantastic mysteries of the Universe and where we Earthlings fit into the grand scheme of things. I styled myself as a mystical goddess, balancing the Earth effortlessly on my crown as I dance through the galaxy. We see this dance of the Goddess in all things, cycles, and seasons, and the more in tune we are to these cosmic patterns, the better off our planet and all of its inhabitants will be.





inMonster’s new bad girl…”Donatella”




Dear lovelies, head on down to inMonster and grab yourself your own “Donatella” complete outfit and rock YOUR inner bad girl!  I’ve just recently been added to the inMonster blogger team and boy, am I excited…this outfit in particular is not only risque and tough, but also kind of classy couture, kind of like how Rihanna would wear Chanel.  Rihanna was, in fact, an inspiration for the way I styled this outfit, although with the included aviators and sassy combat boots I didn’t have too much work to do!

The “Donatella” comes with the black top and skirt, but the skirt is available separately in these five shades:


Check out inMonster’s store on the MP, you won’t be disappointed!
