Thuper Thursday Things!

Its Thursday which means...almost the weekend!!!! I have some great things for you today, so I'm going to jump right into it!

Pose - Lady Gaga #4
Shape -
BloodRayne from Body Doubles
Background -
Grungy Stripes Texture #17 ($300 pack of 20) from Core

Her mother was human, her father a Vampire...she is neither. She is a Dhampir. Originally starting out as an action-adventure video game character, BloodRayne has inspired movies and even comic books. Body Doubles brings you BloodRayne as portrayed by Kristianna Loken in the 2006 movie, which I highly do not recommend seeing. The movie may suck eggs, but Rayne is a gorgeous Dhampir and is a shape all Vampire enthusiasts should have in their collection. This is one lady who kicks major butt! You need to have her in your shape collection!

I was looking through the amazing textures from Core, and found the perfect one for the picture backdrop. Featuring a gold skull and crossbones, this is an incredible texture and has such a lovely silky texture again. You need to check these out. They have so many uses and at $300 for a pack of 20, its a good buy.

Pose - Keeley Hazell #2
Wearing -
Georgette 2 ($225) from DollyRock
Background -
Grungy Stripes #13 from Core
Inset Pose - Bree (
Desperate Housewives Profile Reward no longer available)
Wearing -
Alice ($185) from DollyRock
Background -
Grungy Stripes #11 from Core

Yes I'm still in Princess Mode and wearing my tiara. It just goes with everything and looks fabulous with these two gorgeous dresses from DollyRock! First we have the Georgette 2 dress which is a variation of the Georgette gown released last week to celebrate St George's Day in England. Tradition is to wear a red rose through your lapel...or in this case, all over a gorgeous dress. The Georgette 2 dress comes with the shoes featuring a tiny rose on the top. Just stunning. Also new this week is Alice - a playful and cute dress in a pink gingham check with tiny hearts dangling from the bottom of the skirt. Looks like DollyRock's Alice beat the Queen of Hearts and is sporting trophies! Run on in to the mainstore and look under the subscribo - which you neeeed to hit up - and you'll see the Choc Bunny shirt still out as the free gift.

Pose - Cute Girl Dollarbie
Wearing -
Stars n Stripes ($350) from Rainbow's End
Inset Pose - Ashanti Dollarbie

From one of newest stores comes the patriotic Stars n Stripes dress. I feel like Miss America in this picture...and look like her too! Tiaras have that effect. From Rainbow's End, the Stars n Stripes dress comes with two skirt options...long and short...and also comes with shoes! The skirts look great when dancing and its just what you need cos July 4th isn't too far away really. Okay its 2 months away, but you can never have too much stuff right ladies??? Imagine all the parties and events you will need to dress up for! Like we need an excuse though!

I missed Ake yesterday, but she will be back with us tomorrow with more fabulous pictures and poses from Striking Poses to show us. I enjoy watching how she uses them in creative and inspiring ways.

The Boutique Stores are up on the third floor of the Striking Poses mainstore. There are teleporters dotted all around the store for a quick trip upstairs, or you can use the stairs. We have a fabulous group of stores up there, all with LMs to their mainstores if you would like to check out more of their ranges.

See you on Saturday!!!!

Pink for girlies?

I have another confession to make, my second this month doesn't sound so good, does it?

I have to confess that when Zelly sent me the new release for this week, I had no idea to whom she was. I googled her, I checked YouTube, I looked on Wikipedia and nothing at all, I was completely lost to whom it was and the little information I found on her didn’t make much sense to me..

I asked Zelly if she was like Paris Hilton but with pink hair? Zelly laughed at me! ... and she promptly told me not to be silly and that it is in fact Audrey Kitching!

This girl with her bright pink hair and her very unique style is ideal for this week’s set of poses! The poses Zelly has produced look fresh, stylish and cool, isn't that a good combination for you? It sure is for me and I’m really thinking to update my HUD this week ... why not? :)

Audrey Kitching Fatpack

As you know with all new collections this comes with 10 poses, in the case you can’t decide each of them are available to buy separately as well as the fat pack.

And ... during the week I'll be showing you another peak of Striking Poses New Releases.

Do not forget that we have so many lovely boutiques located at the 3rd floor of our main store; keep an eye on the blog as Jordan will tell you what can be found on inside them and if there is any of it free for rent. Do you want another confession? *giggles* I've saw the adorable stuff that the designers have made and I'll buy something’s from them as soon as Zelly pays me :3

mmmm .... Okeej! I think i write to much ... sooo ... see ya tomorrow!

You Don't Want To Miss This!

Its a new week with lots of wonderful surprises and releases from the fabulous stores we have upstairs at Striking Poses.

Pose - Lady GaGa #4
Wearing -
Hazel ($50) from DollyRock
Backdrop -
Grungy Stripes #20 ($300 pack of 20) from Core

I'm in a bit of a "princess" mood this week and have been wearing my tiara all over the place with all sorts of outfits. Every woman needs a tiara in her inventory and never needs an excuse to wear it! If I did need an excuse, it would be because I found this gorgeous dress for a song at DollyRock!!! This special offer has been extended, so you need to run on in and snap it up! Also at DollyRock you can find Cherry's Pick. This is an outfit that the wonderful Cherry has chosen to offer at the special price of $100. This week its a sexy lacey outfit called Nancy and it comes in four colour choices.

I just had to show off a gorgeous texture from Core. The stripes and finish gives the one I used an almost silky look that is classy yet keeps the grunge feel and look. The packs contain 20 textures that are just perfect for photo backgrounds or for many other uses. I think they'd look pretty just as pictures on the wall!

Pose - Doutzen Krous #8
Inset Pose - Glamorous Dollarbie
Wearing -
Ravel (Exclusive gift) from Milady's Fancy

Exclusively as a gift at the Striking Poses Boutique Stores is the elegant and sexy Ravel dress from Milady's Fancy. For a classy day look, it has a bolero jacket layer that is worn over the strapless bodice top and long black pencil skirt. Take it off and you have a sexy evening look. This is the outfit that really does take you from day into night. Don't forget to peek in and fall in love with the rest of the range at Milady's Fancy.

Body Doubles just keep on chugging out the sexiest shapes! From their Skin Specific Collection comes two new shapes for Free Speerit skins - Alice and Kimberly. There's nothing better than having a shape that compliments and works with the skins you invest so much time choosing and lindens buying. Check out the range of Skin Specific shapes at the Body Doubles mainstore and see if they have yours!

We have two new amazing stores in the Striking Poses Boutique family. Please help us welcome Ali Couture and Divalicious! I checked them both out yesterday and I was wowed by the designs and range they both well as having a few nawty lusties over some of the outfits! You NEED to drop in and check them out asap!!!! I can't wait to share their designs with you!

Beam me up Scotty!

Ake has the newest amazing poses from Zelly to share with you this week. Don't forget to check XStreet for the older dollarbies! We don't want you missing out on any of the Zelly and Striking Poses goodness!

Hooray for the Weekend!!!!

I keep forgetting to mention a new store we have here at the Striking Poses Boutiques, so before I do it again, we welcome Rainbows End to our family. Drop on in and check them out!

Pose - Bette Davis #3
Wearing -
Gone Fishin' Choker ($250) from Core

Core does it again! Another cute and sexy choker has been added to their fabulous range. With a little fishy hanging off it, its perfect for a Neko kitty or just any fish fan! I'm wearing the version in rust, but it does come in other finishes and is absolutely stunning. Don't forget you still have time to get your entries in for their advertisement photo contest!!! Maybe you could use this piece...

Pose - Charlize Theron #10
Wearing -
Grungy Barb Wire Boots ($250) from Core, Bitch Extraordinaire Tee (no longer available I think) from SySy and Crystallized Rose Jeans (tba) from xTotalxBettyx

I had a bit of fun with this pic. I used a prop from one of my fav prop places, one of Zelly's fabulous poses and came up with something a bit different. I really need to start paying attention to what is in folders when I opened them! I missed seeing the resize instructions for the fab boots from Core, so I look like a child wearing mummy's shoes in this pic! They are so totally cool though and perfect for a grunge/urban/neko look. The resizer is very easy to work as well. I feel so silly for not noticing it sooner!

To go with it, I pulled on one of my fav shirts from SySy - which might have been retired. There is a SALE on at the mainstore of SySy at the moment. Selected styles are being sold for $50 or $99, so if there is something you have been hanging out to buy, rush on in, cos you might be picking it up for a bargain! There is a LM at her Striking Poses Boutique!

To complete the look I found the most amazing jeans from xTotalxBettyx in my inventory! I've been searching through their stores but cannot find them for sale there, so I'm again unsure if they are current stock. They are fabulously sexy though. Roses are my favourite flowers and these jeans have a gorgeous red rose on the back pockets. Their mainstore has been remodelled and there are some glorious new designs for sale, so pop on in, grab a LM and check it out!

Pose 1 - Snow Bunny #6
Pose 2 - Keira Knightley #3
Wearing -
Darchy Sundress ($149) from Jazmyn D

You cannot go wrong with this simple, but adorable summer dress from Jazmyn D. It comes in three colours (pink not pictured) and is just stunning. I love the simplicity of the design and the playful fabric chosen to make this dress. It can take you from picnics at the beach to cafe lunches and just hanging out with friends or your special someone. Don't forget to grab a LM and hit up Jazmyn's subscribo for all her new design info and gifts. Looks fab with my new hair too!

Have you joined the Striking Poses Group yet? There's a sign in the mainstore, so come on in, hunt it out and hit it up and you'll be kept in the loop on all the fabulous new poses, sales and dollarbies Zelly has for us every week! Ake will be back tomorrow with more Striking Poses news. I'm so loving her Lady GaGa posts and the ways she finds to use them. I always look forward to seeing what she comes up with next!

I will see you on Monday for more Boutique goodness! Have a great weekend!!!!

and again.. repeat after me.. GA GA

I used to work for a boss who was from USA that he always greeted people on the phone with that 'Yellow', don't ask me why I thought of that.. hehehe...
I'm here to show you another of my favorite poses (the last for this week). It's a shame I don't have more time to do all the poses, as It's always difficult picking just a handful to use in my pictures, as I always love them all!
Laday Gaga Pose 10
Lady Gaga 10 Pose
Isn't this just awesome? if you can't imagine a use for this pose, well, I've some ideas for you ... first of all, It's super duper cool for use on catwalks at the latest fashion or, has a unique attitude that is perfect for use in fashion ...
Lady Gaga pose 10
The best use I find for it is when you land from flying around, isn't it awesome? just imagine landing in front of all your friends with this exclusive Lady Gaga pose, you will not only have style and attitude, you will also look so freaking awesome, stylish and on the wave! I already added it to my HUD, I recommend you all do the same ;)
Don't forget to keep an eye on our blog! Our lovely Jordan will come to show you the best at the boutiques.
Also we have that lovely couple pose for you as Group Gift, so stop by our store and pick it up for free, but don't forget, members only :P

Thursday Yummies!

I'm a wee bit tired today...mostly cos I have been up since 5:30am with Miss Short, Evil and I haven't had the time or energy to do pics for today's post so I'll be using screenshots instead.

New to our Boutique Stores is Milady's Fancy. I'm totally in lust with the Alix dress in the pic and I know you will be too once you see it. Delicate lace panels run down the sides of a sparkly and sexy cocktail dress which is just the yummiest I have seen in a while. It comes in a range of colours for those prefer a more colourful look.

If you have been loving the Lady GaGa poses, why not grab the Lady GaGa shape from Body Doubles. She's saucy, sexy and always provocative and would be a great addition to anyone's shape collection. Or if you just want sexy, there's the new Nelly Furtado shape available now. Two very hot ladies and very hot shapes. Its a hard decision.

G Sloane Couture has been busy creating new and sexy things for us this week. One of my favs is Fit To Be Tied (pictured above). Is it a dress, its it lingerie? It can be sheer silk ribbons of silk wrap around your body as a base, then topped by satin ribbons loosely draped, combined with a sheer chiffon skirt but also a solid coordinating underskirt so you can wear this in the boudior or at a gala. It comes in lilac and in black and is just gorgeous.

Not only does Core have cute accessories, furniture and photography...but now they have introduced a range of textures! These will look great as a photo background or for any other uses. Don't forget about the photo contest Core is running!

Pose - Catrinel Menghia #2
Wearing - I Dropted My Cupcake Tank ($35) from Gumdrop

I popped into Gumdrop earlier and saw the cutest tank top so I just had to have it! Its something all cupcake fans need to have, even if it has a very sad message on it - I dropped my cupcake. It comes in pink and yellow and jacket/shirt layer options. Awesome bargain! Check out the range of 80s tees, long stripey socks and other wonderful items at Gumdrop.

There's always lots of wonderfulness on the third floor of Striking Poses, so come on up and check it out after you stock up on Zelly's awesome poses.

Repeat after me.... GA GA

Another day is here, the weeks seem to be going by faster now. I have to confess I had forgot about writing review on the older poses, that’s why I’ve decided to dedicate this week to “Lady Gaga” (as you may have noticed, this is the only release for this week).
Maybe you are tired of hearing about her, but you still want to hear more! Just look at the fabulous work Zelly has put into these unique and original poses, this is why I’ve chosen the one that I love the most and then using this pose I have worked on some special photos … all for you girls!
As you can see below, this is pose Nº9, when you buy a single pose you will get this advert. You are probably wondering how this pose looks when used within the SL environment? … well I’m here to show you that part of Striking Poses.
Lady Gaga 9 Pose
Many Ideas come to my mind with these poses, you don’t just have to use it for photo shoots, it can also be a good pose to add to your huds.
Lady Gaga 9 by Striking Poses
This pose has a mixture of classic stand and a modern elegance, just imagine yourself standing in a store, while you go shopping, or in a bar, with a posh dress, or at the catwalk, after your sexy cool walk, you stand with this pose and show the audience the good taste on you and the designers amazing collection … as I said, classic with style … I love it!

GA GA...

When Zelly told me about the new release for this week, I had to shyly confess that I had no idea to whom she had based the poses on. So after a quick search on Google it would appear that she is one of the most popular singers at the moment! 

And like everything else in SL you can always find clothes, accessories and hair all based on this famous singer, but as always you can never find any poses! Well.. until now of course!

Ladies I would like to welcome this week new edition to the Striking Poses pose collection, “Lady Gaga”. 

Lady Gaga Fatpack

This collection rocks, is really fashion, orignal with lot of style, I am so much motivated with this fatpack that I couldn't help but make and dedicate the week to her xD ... that is why I won't be posting any of my photos, you will see them on this days ... if you want to see more ... keep an eye on the blog.

As you can see this collection not only looks cool but it ROCKS! Look at the style in which Zelly captured, it is just perfect and because of this I have the full fat pack in my inventory and I plan on dedicating this week to Lady Gaga. When I say dedicate, you’ll just have to keep an eye on the blog! ;)

What are you waiting for? Come on over to our store and grab your favorite poses from this collection, and of course if you can’t decide on just one, we have the full fat pack available with them all!

See ya all tomorrow

Its Monday Already???

I've got some really lovely things to share with you today, so let's jump right into it!

Pose - Charlize Theron #7
Wearing -
Choc Bunny Shirt ($0) and Jackee Cargo Pants (previously blogged) from DollyRock

DollyRock is still in Easter mode with this free crop top! Its sure to tempt anyone with its cute choc bunny head and the text "I haz chocolate" is sure to have people talking. Its a cute little freebie from the wonderful DollyRock, so run on in and see if it is still there. Its a shirt you definately want to have in your inventory! Whilst you're there picking up your free shirt, check out the DollyRock/photoLIFE photo contest. You could win fabulous prizes by taking a picture of yourself in one of DollyRock's gorgeous outfits and entering it on their Flickr page. What a great reason to buy some of the amazing DollyRock clothes!!! Your Striking Poses poses will be perfect for this too! Oh more news...there is a super duper sexy bargain to be found at their main store. A special dress going for $50l this week only! See if you can find it!

Pose - Liv Tyler #3
Wearing -
Mademoiselle Fleur ($125) from SySy

Inset Pose - Playboy 0309 Germany
Wearing -
Beans on Toast ($275) from SySy

Elegant is how I would describe the Mademoiselle Fleur dress. Its the classic strapless form fitting dress which ends just above the knees for a sexy touch. The fabric has a gorgeous starburst pattern which gives it a sparkling look without the bling. I have had the lusties for this dress for a while now, and when I saw it was down to $125, well its now in my inventory!!! For a sexy Autumn/Winter look (for us in the Southern Hemisphere anyway) is the Beans on Toast dress. I just love that name too. It comes with matching long socks with slouchies at the ankles and knees. The flares at the wrists and the low cut neckline give this dress a super sexy look for any professional lady or just for anyone who wants to dress to impress!

Pose - Doutzen Krous #6
Wearing -
Alexis ($150) from Clover

Inset 1 Pose - Keira Knightley #3
Inset 2 Pose - Sarah Michelle Gellar #2
Wearing -
Summer Top ($75) from Clover

Another great classy professional look comes from the Alexis outfit from Clover. Comprising of a jacket layer pink top with a rolled neck collar and black belt over a black leather sculpted skirt, this is one fabulous ensemble for any occasion. For those glorious summer days comes the Summer Top. This can be worn two ways, as shown. For movement and a cute innocent look, there is the babydoll attachment which is just adorable or if tank tops are more your thing, you can wear it without the attachment for a classic tank look. With a range of colours, there is bound to be one for you!

Another of our Boutique Stores having a photo contest at the moment on their Flickr page is Core. Design an advert for any of their items and you could have your winning entry displayed in the store and a fabulous giftcard prize. With so many adorable items at Core, it would be hard to pick just one thing to create an advert for! Full details can be found at their mainstore.

I'm certainly looking forward to Ake's take on Zelly's new releases this week as they are FABULOUS as usual! There's always sexy dollarbies at the store and on XStreet for the older ones, so you will never be without some Striking Poses in your collection.

See you on Thursday!

Welcome to the Weekend!!!!

Yay its Saturday! Time for more Boutique news!

Pose 1 - Angelina Jolie #5
Pose Middle - Kate Beckinsale #2
Pose Inset - Christina Applegate Dollarbie
Wearing -
Covet ($299) from Pout

Such a gorgeous and versatile dress this week from Pout. You get a short flirty skirt, ideal for clubbing, the medium skirt which is longer at the back and short at the front which reminds me of a dress you'd go salsa dancing in! And if that wasn't enough you have a classy long slim skirt that could easily take you from shopping in the day in all those high class designer stores (including Pout and Striking Poses of course!) to a drink at a bar in the evening. With a mesh detail to the middle of the top, you can show off some of that flesh without screaming for attention, to put it politely! It comes in 8 beautiful colours and at only $299 each, you can afford more than one!

Inset Pose - Kristen Stewart #2
Wearing -
Aqua Bikini (Free this week) from Joyful Designs

Pose - Charlize Theron #5
Wearing -
Ballroom Beauty ($199) from Joyful Designs

Once again its great what you find when you hunt around through our Boutique Stores and their main ones. This time I found the Aqua Bikini at Joyful Designs for free this week only. Its a prim bikini too, so it gave me a chance to practice my modifying skills. I didn't do too badly if I do say so myself. I also picked up the gorgeous Ballroom Beauty gown. The skirt is such a transparent tease and it moves lovely with your body...perfect for a night out dancing. New releases are 50% off this week at the mainstore, so you definately do not want to miss this! I spent some time playing the Number Guess game - which I sucked at, but it was fun!

Pose - Tanja Dexters Lucky Chair
Wearing -
Aquamarin ($0) from Medusa's Joy

Another example of the great things you find when you poke around the stores. I was wandering the Medusa's Joy Boutique Store, grabbed a LM to their main one to check out more of the range, and stumbled upon this lovely gift. The colour is fabulous and I love the different textures used to give the gown a unique look. Its a store you need to experience!

Pose - Courtney Cox Dollarbie
Wearing -
Escada (Subscribo Gift) from Jazmyn D

Nothing sucks more than having to play "group tag" between work, home and guilty pleasure groups when you need or want to join more. The 25 limit is hideous, especially when you pay to join groups and need to join more for whatever reason. Anyway back to Jazmyn D. She does have a subscribo and I absolutely love this gift you receive when you join it. The shirts are two layers, open white top and the blue tank style top, and a sexy pair of black pants with belt detailing. Its dressy enough for work, if you are in management or work in an office environment, or for more casual occasions such as shopping or just hanging out. Check out her store, hit the subscribo and keep in touch with the awesome things she has for us in her main store and at her Striking Poses Boutique one.

Zelly has some fantabulous things for you coming up next week and I can't wait to see how Ake uses them in her blog posts for us. I just know they will have you all going "gaga" over them. Time for me to dash off before one of them spanks me for that dreadful pun.

Enjoy your weekend!!!

TGIF Boutique Yummies!

Yay its Friday! In the Second Life world anyway. It does get confusing living a day ahead of SL and always having to think a day behind. I get so disorientated!

Enough about that and on to the latest goodies from the Boutique Stores!

She's a Peach Cupcake ($100) from xTotalxBettyx

I absolutely love this dress! So much so that I stalked a lucky board all day to get the hair and went off Ballet Boot shopping so I could have a "ballerina look" to wear with it. But its perfect for any occasion, not just for playing ballet! The ruffled skirt and addition of the sculpted flower on the decollatage are what makes this a totally gorgeous dress for going out dancing or any time you want to look glamorous and beautiful! At only $ can you not add this to your inventory?

Dreamer Top in Lilac ($75), Skinny Pants in Black ($75) and Amber Set Scarf ($225 for whole outfit) from SySy

With summer coming up, you can never have enough tank tops and the 70s Print Tank Top from SySy is a classy and sexy one that will dress up any pair of jeans or skirt. At only $75, you can grab more than one and look great all summer long! Also perfect for a gorgeous summer day is the Dreamer Top. With the delicate lacey crochet layer over the shirt which extend down the arms and bottom, its a lovely top. Coming in tucked and untucked versions, it a steal at only $75!

Gift Dress from G Sloane Couture

Its amazing what you find when you poke around our Boutique Stores. I found this sexy number at the G Sloane Couture store as her gift for women. There is also one for men. With sheer and dark panels over the bodice and skirt, its a very sexy and elegant dress for a classy night out. Check out the rest of the clothing when you swing by to pick this up, cos you might find the perfect outfit you have been looking for!

Sonia Dress (Group Gift) from Clover

If you haven't checked out Clover yet, you have no idea what goodies you are missing out on. Not only are the clothes super affordable and gorgeous, but the main store has so many super things like lucky chairs and group gifts. I joined the group and grabbed some yummy goodness from Clover like the Dotty Dress and skin that was in the 1000 Member Group Gift and then hit the previous group gift wall and picked up the Sonia Dress and some other yummies I will share with you another time.

Long before Leonardo and Clare rocked Shakespeare, there was Olivia and Leonard in the 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet, which will be remembered for the first cinematic version of the play to have actual teenagers playing the roles of the doomed lovers. Body Doubles brings you a new shape - Oliva Hussey! A sexy mix of English and Argentine, Olivia is a gorgeous addition to your shape collection. With her comes the styling card with skin, hair etc suggestions to make your new shape look like the picture above.

We have many more fabulous stores up on the third floor of Striking Poses, so if you haven't checked them out yet, look at all the goodness you are missing!!! We have some of the best stores displaying some of their best products with us at fabulous prices. There is a TP link on the teleporters around the store, so if you have stair issues like me, you can just beam on up!

We have a vacancy, so if you are interested, give me a yell and I'll hook you up. For $200/week, you get 50 prims and me promoting you on this blog weekly!

Keep checking XStreet for more of Zelly's fab dollarbie poses and don't forget the wonderful RFL pose, Lean on Me. Its one of my favourites!

Bumper Monday Madness!

I got so disorientated over the weekend that I completely forgot what days it was and I missed my Saturday post!!! To make up for it, I have a bumper post for you today full of so many goodies!

Inset Pose - Catrinel Menghia #10
Wearing -
Sweety ($225) from DollyRock

Pose - Charlize Theron #1
Wearing -
Jackee ($225) from DollyRock

Just when you think you're all choccied out after Easter, DollyRock brings you the most irresistable and exquisite dress ever. The chocolate Sweety dress!!! Omg I could just eat this one up! Smooth chocolate covers the bodice and sleeves, moving down to a chunky chocolate skirt thats just so....yummmmmy! A cute touch is the "eat me" badge! If you are as big a chocoholic as me, you NEEEEED this dress! For the urban commando, there is the cutest pink cargo set for you called Jackee. The cropped jacket is adorable and I especially love the pockets which attach to hips and arms giving the outfit a more authentic look. You'll be ready to take on anything in this outfit!

Inset Pose - Pink #4
Wearing -
Haughty 2 ($149) from Jazmyn D

Pose - Jean Shrimpton #9

Haughty ($149) from Jazmyn D

Yet another affordable and classy Jazmyn D look. The halter top is just so sexy and looks great matched up with either the pants or the miniskirt. Its a look that works for casual events or even dressy occasions. Don't forget to check out Jazmyn's mainstore too for more fabulous clothes, bargains and hit up the subscribo while you are there to keep up with all the great new products!

Pose - Foxy Brown Dollarbie
Wearing -
Untamed ($199) from Joyful Designs

You'll be looking every bit the sophisticated huntress stalking your shopping prey in this ensemble from Joyful Designs. Complete with glasses, hat, and sandals, this is a great outfit for lunch with the girls or shopping jaunts through the malls and stores of SL. The animal print detailing gives this such a great look for anyone who likes things a bit wilder.

Pose 1 - Yamila Diaz Lucky Chair

Candy Bikini ($0) from Sweet!

Pose 2 - Sandra Bullock #9
Wearing -
Spring Flowers Shirt (Malt Hunt Gift) from Sweet!

Its always a nice surprise when I find gifts from our Boutiquers in hunts all over SL. Being a hunt junkie, I do a lot of them and I was over at Malt doing their Easter Egg hunt when I found an egg from Sweet! with six lovely shirts in it. The Spring Flower one is just so cute. From a distance it does look like the actual shirt is transparent and that you have nothing but flowers and leaves covering you, but its just an illusion from the pale beige fabric. I also found the cute Candy Bikini as a gift in the store over at Malt. Its perfect for summer, beautifully cut and looks like you are covered with M & Ms. Mmmmm I want more chocolate!

From Body Doubles I have 60s sex kitten Ann-Margaret for you today! Born in Sweden and raised in the States, Ann-Margaret went on to become a bombshell in movies and had a successful singing career as well. She has won 5 Golden Globes and also had Oscar, Emmy and Grammy nominations. Best known for her role in Viva Las Vegas opposite Elvis Presley, Ann-Margaret has had a wonderful career which is still going strong. You can be the original redhaired bombshell with this fabulous shape from Body Doubles. With it comes a styling note to help you pick the skin, hair and everything else to become the pictured and finished star.

I do have one more gorgeous item to share with you, but I'll save it for Thursday to give Ake a chance to show you all the fabulous new poses Zelly has created for us.

The Boutique Stores are on the third floor of the mainstore in Glenn. If you are a total stairtard like me and have trouble navigating even the simplest stairs, there is a TP to the stores by the main entrance. All the stores are chock (there's that word again!) full of fabulous surprises and things to thrill and delight you. There are also LMs to their mainstores if you want to check out more of their ranges, so stop by and spend a bit of time browsing. You never know what you will find there.

I have a vacancy at the moment, so give me a yell if you would like to join the Boutique Store family.
