Get Your Tango On!

As I was looking for a location to photograph this lovely dress from coldLogic, I stumbled across Ocho Tango, described as "...a land dedicated to tango, with a milonga for dancing and live concerts."
I HAD to tp over and I'm glad I did!

Of course the perfect spot for the photo was beside the chicken, that cleverly doubles as the Intan single dance ball, lol.  The music and the design of the sim is engaging and absolutely delightful.  I'll be back to dance for sure!

Here's your taxi to Ocho Tango!

Collabor88 and Gos

A visit to Collabor88 yielded the perfect outfit for a lazy Sunday afternoon.  Top and shorts are by {fd} and are oh so cute!  I added mesh feet and flip flops from Gos to complete this casual look.

I managed to get in to the Truth Hair sale this morning and the style I'm wearing is called Zendaya...I've been trying to get in for several days and was so happy when I landed inside the shop.  I picked up lots of mesh hair for only $75 L each and I'll be showing them in future blog posts.

It was a great day to shop and a great day to be lazy!

Here is your taxi to Collabor88!

LIV Glam @ Designer Showcase

The April edition of Designer Showcase is out and ready for your shopping pleasure!  I was certainly pleased by this gorgeous floral dress from LIV Glam!  It elegantly announces "spring" with deeper and richer colors than the usual pastels that we see this season.  It is beautifully designed and a joy to wear... the mesh is nice and "thick" so I can move about without my skin breaking through the mesh.  I really like that.  Some of my favorite mesh outfits look fantastic when I'm standing still, but have the problem of "break-through" skin showing as I move.  I'm not an expert by any means, just a consumer who notices such things and I have a deep appreciation for designers who make the mesh "thick" enough to avoid such problems.  "Thick" is my own word... one that I chose simply because I'm not well-versed in the mechanics and terminology of mesh creation and it seems to fit what I'm trying to describe. Special thanks to the designer for making such a quality item!

My hair is a wonderful style in a deep red tone from Wasabi Pills.  I love the way it frames my face!  My eyes are from IKON's Horizon Eyes collection and love the way they are exquisitely highlighted.  Jewelry is from Purple Moon Creations, a set I picked up in a past hunt called "Margo".  My skin is League's Jen in DeepTan. 

I took the photo in my new and very empty house, the Midsomer Cottage from Pamela Galli.  I love this mesh house and hope to have it decorated soon.  The wall decor behind me is called Fly Away and is from What Next.

Here's your taxi to Designer Showcase...

Shine @Designer Showcase

I took a trip down to Designer Showcase and found this wonderful floral dress for only $99 L!  It comes with a really nice belt, but I snapped the photos before I realized I'd not put it on and I think it looks really great with or without the belt!

I added jewelry from Chop Zuey that worked beautifully with the colors and design of the dress.  Checking back in my notes, I found that the jewelry was offered as group gifts a few months ago.  Belle Rousel is so generous with her group, giving not one but multiple gifts every month!  I value my membership in the Chop Zuey group!

My shoes are an oldie but wonderful goodie from Mstyle. The shoes I'm wearing are sculpted prims, but they are now available in mesh!  Time for me to update!

There are lots of terrific bargains at Designer Showcase, so here is your taxi!
