Take The Night at Rock Your Rack

Take The Night

Rock Your Rack Opened yesterday for another fantastic year! Gorgeous beach themed sim with lots to see and do – 10L hunt, one-of-a-kind silent auctions, Art Show, Fashion Shows, Musical Events, 7Seas Fishing – lots to do. There are 58 designer exclusives to get your hands on as well. Today I have the Roth’s exclusive gown on that I wore to host two of the fashion shows at the event this weekend. I love this gown. It’s a sweetheart, strapless design, just above floor length so you can wear your favorite strappy sandals with it. Black with a beautiful jacquard print in it that makes it classic and perfect for any occasion where you need classic elegance. It is mesh, and come in Classic Mesh, fitmesh, and versions for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya Mesh Bodies. Head on over to Rock Your Rack and pick it up while your entire purchase supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

I also have some new items to share with you from my sponsors that work perfectly with this amazing gown. First up is my hair from enVOGUE. This is the “Dianne” updo. I’m wearing one of them in light blondes. I love this hair – it’s a modern take on the classic updo with some interesting pulled together styling in the back. It’s available at the enVOGUE mainstore now in a variety of color packs.

My makeup is also available as an exclusive at Rock Your Rack 2017. This is from Alaskametro and is the “Pumpkin Spice” applier for Catwa heads. It also is available for Lelutka and Omega/Classic Avi’s. Love this!

My nails are at Shiny Shabby this round from Alme. These are one of the five nail designs in the Autumn Kit Shiny set. Five different nail designs are in the hud, you can wear one or mix and match them all for a custom look. The Hud works with Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Vista Bento, Tuty’s and Omega nails. Hurry over to Shiny shabby and get yours! You need this for fall.

Heth Haute Couture- Edith Gown & Edith Jewelry Set

In keeping with the theme of “Bringing Vintage Into Vogue”, Heth Haute Couture presents a stunning design in “The Edith Gown” and “The Edith Jewelry Set“. The gown is truly a showstopper alone. “This mesh gown will turn the eyes of everyone as you enter the room. Featuring a form fitting gown detailed with sequins, stones and beads. The top of the gown features a wrap flourished gathered chiffon and beading that flows down the gown to the chiffon mermaid tail. Includes eBODY, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass and Physique, and FitMesh large and small sizes. Fits most mesh avatars. Make a statement in this new couture gown.” I really enjoy how the folds of fabric swirl at my feet as I move across the floor, shown here on the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body. The Edith Gown is sure to please! And what better manner in which to compliment such a gown than to wear the coordinating Edith Jewelry Set! “This glamorous new mesh jewelry set was created by request to go with the new Edith Gown. Crafted in sterling and set with brilliant cut round diamonds and pear cut Edith diamonds. Includes matching tiara, necklace, bracelets, earrings, and rings. Micro resizers in some pieces. Add the perfect finishing touch with this beautiful new mesh set. Exclusively available at Heth Haute Couture.” My children have given me the nickname of “First Lady”, why not look as a Queen anytime I desire? Take good care- Xio

When there is Hope there is Life

Bringing Hope

When there is hope after a tragedy there is life. So much of helping people when they have lost everything, or they have hit rock bottom is about giving them hope. Hope that things will get better, hope that there is a future, hope that someone out there cares about them and what happens to them. As a community, it’s important to give others hope and let them know that with help, they will get through what is one of the hardest times of their lives. Two charity events in Second Life do just that – one is the Hope After Harvey event and the other is the upcoming Rock Your Rack event. Hope After Harvey supports the American Red Cross Disaster Fund which allows them to assist anyone who is a victim of a tragedy – either a hurricane such as Harvey and now Irma, or even if their house burns down in the middle of the night. It also supports the Houston Humane Society which has worked tirelessly through the high waters rescuing animals, and making sure others who are cut off from food by flood waters have adequate food to make it through until the water recedes. Two very worthy reasons to go and shop at this fundraising event, or even just drop some lindens in the donation box at the event. It’s open until September 20th.

My Gown is a special limited edition available only at the Hope After Harvey event. This gorgeous gown and included forehead tiara is a special Limited edition Sapphire color of the “Kaya” gown from Azul. Mami Jewell has graciously provided 4 different special edition gowns/dresses for this charity event, all with 50% of the proceeds going to the cause. Why not treat yourself to a gorgeous AZUL gown while supporting those who need hope. Find it at the Hope after Harvey Event going on now.

Kaya Tiara

My nails are a new release at the Imaginarium Gacha event from Alme. Beautiful blue floral wreaths are just one of 10 common polish Hud’s available along with 2 Rare HUD’s for just $50L a pull. After 20 pulls you will receive a beautiful red and white floral HUD that will only be available during this event and will be retired. Alme nail huds work with Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, Vista Bento and Tuty’s nails. The Imaginarium event closes September 28th.

Floral Gacha Nails

Finally, I want to let you know about the upcoming Rock Your Rack 2017 Event opening September 30th. This amazing event is in it’s 5th year supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation. This year’s event will feature 58 designer booths, 11 fashion shows, DJ Dance Parties, Live Musicial Entertainment, a 10L Hunt, Silent Auctions and the Kultivate Rock Your Rack Art Show. Two weeks of festivities will certainly be the place to be to not only find amazing exclusives, but to get one of a kind pieces of art, fashion and hear amazing musical performances. Visit the Rock Your Rack Website for all the details leading up to the event and then be sure to visit the event between Sept. 30th and October 14.

Boasting twenty eight, brilliant cut, 5 carat diamonds on a Byzantine base. A mastering of modern couture design – you will stand out in the fashion artist wearing this bold new design.

Summer Lace

Summer Lace Close

Summer still has life in it, this weekend is packing one last hurrah as far a heat goes, and so this beautiful lace sundress from AZUL is perfect! This is the “Jeanne” dress. This layered, lace dress is full length and straight with spaghetti straps and a deep V front allowing you to stay cool and show off that tan you worked so hard on this summer. It comes in 17 different colors including one marketplace limited edition and one special for platinum members. It comes with the coordinated hair flowers that match the flower on the bodice. This comes with mesh versions for Maitreya Lara, Belleza, Slink, and standard mesh. It’s at the AZUL Mainstore now.

My Hair is from enVOGUE. This is the “Ramona” hair in light blondes. It has two versions, one with the hair coming down the right, and one down the left. Both have a materials and non-materials version. I’m wearing one of the hair colors in the light blondes pack, but there are several packs available, one sure to have your perfect shade. It’s at the enVOGUE a mainstore now.

Finally, these amazing nails are from Alme. The “Rainbow” nails are at the Trunk Show now through September 13th.

Firelight

Summer is coming to an end, just a couple of weekends to go, and this one is being spent relaxing by the fire with friends. Not looking forward to going back to work here in just another week, but the promise of future summers is always on my mind……

See styling notes, but I want to feature in this post from my sponsors – hair and nails. First up is my fantastic braided hairstyle from enVOGUE. This is “Lorelay” in light blondes. It’s a great chunky braid that goes down the back. Amazing details, and you can change the color of the bands on the ends of the braids to coordinate with your outfit via included HUD. I’m also wearing the CATWA hairbase V2 in light blonde also from enVOGUE to coordinate perfectly.

These nails work with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, OMEGA, Vista Bento and Tuty’s.
