Humpday on Harlow

Its Wednesday and you know what that bloggage from the Harlow stores!

Pose - Tickled Feet 6
Wearing -
Boyfriend Shirt from SF Designs

Full of great clothing for men and women, SF Designs has joined us here on Harlow. One of my favourite shirts is their boyfriend shirt. Its a perfect casual shirt to wear with jeans and comes in 3 colour choices. There is also 3 ways to wear it. You can wear it like I am above, tied around your waist, or as an open shirt with a tank or bra top underneath. Check out what else is in store!

Pose - Sulty 9
Wearing -
Fenanimal in Snake from XTC

I think of all the XTC clothing I own, this remains my favourite. You get a sexy leather thong worn with chaps, a cropped leather jacket, fingerless gloves, and the most stunningly textured long sleeve shirt in an animal print. I love to wear the top with jeans or leather pants when I just out and about. You have to see these textures to believe them!

Pose - International Model 3 #9
Wearing -
SSC Laqroki Jasmin Shape from Body Doubles with Deschanel Earrings and Cheetah Corset Set from Snatch

I just love my collection of Body Doubles shapes! I just love how sexy and proportioned they are. Unfortunately I don't own a Jasmin skin, so I'm wearing my Laq Tasha 2 skin with it. It still looks stunning! I teamed it up with a retro set from Snatch that I picked up during a Hump Day sale a few weeks back and my fav earrings...and they are colour change, so can be worn with anything!

Pose - Working The Camera 1
Wearing -
Slouch (Store Gift) from Fierce Designs

Fierce Designs is another new addition to Harlow. With sexy clothing to bring out the playful side of you and raunchy shoes, you are bound to find something to tease and delight your other half...or maybe find them when you wear this around the grid! As their gift to Harlow, the Slouch pink sweatsuit is free in store and is perfect for a casual jog around the sim while you shop!

Pose - International Model 4 #10
Wearing -
Leprechaun Special from Magnolia

Just in time for St Paddy's Day (March 17th) Magnolia has released a sexy sparklie green number to bring out the Irish in you...even if you don't have any! As with most all of the clothing in store, you get several outfits in the pack. You can wear the fabulous top with jeans, two style of flexi miniskirts, a fitted system skirt mini and a sexy little pair of panties. There is also two styles of stockings included, so you can be the sexiest leprechaun on the grid.

Pose - Pulse Racer #6
Wearing -
Grace in Silver from Catagory 5

If you haven't checked out whats happening in Catagory 5 for a while, you need to pop on in asap! Not only are the Grace and Kate gowns still only $10 each, but there is a fatpack of 30 soon to be retired outfits for only $29! Perfect for clothing an alt or helping out a new resident!

More ideas for your poses :)

Hello Striking Poses Lovers,

The famous valentine’s day or Vday is coming. I’m wondering how you can tell the difference from Vday and Bday when you say them.. Vday… Bday.. Vday.. they sound the same! anyway I’m not going to celebrate it as it’s my brothers Bday on Vday…. How confusing? Bday.. Vday… haha :p

Anyhow, I wanted to share my happiness with you all, as finally my precious Visa has been granted and I will marry Spad in RL soon :D Yaaay!!

Anyway as I always say, this isn’t about me, but about Poses! Okies, for today I have some of my artwork inspired by this elegant pose collection called Hollywood Starlet which has been modeled on Susan Hayward.

Hollywood Startlet Fatpack

In this picture I used poses 6 and 7, making a Expo car show with 2 fantastic models, as you know every nice expo has gorgeous models, and even that is not a model pose, you can always use it for it.

Hollywood starlet

Sometimes just using torsos and arms can really work well in a shot, which is why I’ve chosen pose number 9, this pose has a nice leg stand, but what I loved more was the head looking up to the sky, that is why I’ve decided to do this picture!

Look at me

So … don’t forget the hunt we have on, the poses are super great and the included notes are just perfect to express what you want to say but you are to shy to do it :) Look for the red sculpted heart and have fun!

Love Notes Hunt

And don't forget the sale for this week! totally cheap :D

Lap of Luxury

Just to remind you, this collection is based on Paris Hilton :)

Have a nice weekend and V Day!

How to Be a Starlet? ... with Striking Poses ;)

Hello people!
I hope you are all busy at our hunt! No? Don’t know what I’m talking about? Let me remind you then, we at Striking Poses are holding a Hunt from Feb. 7th to 22nd. It is the “Love Notes Hunt” which means all the 10 poses in the hunt come with some different love message for you to express!
I did the hunt and is pretty easy to find all the hearts, don’t wait too long or you’ll miss your chance ;)

Love Notes Hunt

As you know, our celebrity for this week is the Hollywood Starlet, the beautiful Susan Hayward., the poses are totally glam, I like the style of elegance they have, that is why I was greatly inspired by them and did some pictures with it.
First the original pictures that Zelly used to get her inspiration.

Susan Hayward

And now … meet my inspirational work
This is pose number 02, it is perfect to seduce your partner this valentine’s day, also is a perfect pose for lingerie designers, If I were one, I would use this pose to show my work or my assets ;)

Silent World

Also, I decided to work with close up shot, not that I am getting egocentric, but sometimes people think that a pose must be used to show the whole body, but there are poses that tell “show some part of me!” … So, I took pose number 05, a sitting pose ;)

in my mind

That is all for today, don’t forget we have a sale going on this week, time for a Lap of Luxury, based on Paris Hilton ;) Half price the complete collection and single poses.

Lap of Luxury

I also want to share with you some sad news. From now on our lovely Rhianna won’t be a Diva anymore, this means she is leaving Harlow and Striking Poses for personal reasons. Rhi, we will really miss you, was so much fun to work with you and I will feel alone now you won’t be around. A big hug, take a lot of care of yourself and send me emails!!! :D We Love you! We also want to thank for all your hard work and devotion you gave to us. *Hugs*

Okay see ya soon!

A huge Saints fan, Jessica has made some sexy outfits in their black and gold colours. I love this one, Exotica 2.

Check out Magnolia (formerly Dance Creations) for more awesome clothing at amazingly afford prices.

Monday Goodies!

Another Monday and another month. Wow February already! At this rate its going to be Christmas again before you know it.

From Harlow this week I have found some awesome things to show you.

Pose - Hello Lover #9
Wearing -
Finger Trix and War of the Roses from Snatch

Great big fangirl "squeeeeee" moment! I have been a huge fan of Sn@tch (link broken) since I stumbled across it a couple of years ago. Since then I have managed to almost buy out the store and every new release day, you know thats where you can find me. With a reputation for being a bit of a goth/vampire/neko/alternative store, many people haven't given it a chance, but its branched out into clothing for anyone and everyone. The value is fabulous, as is the designs. You don't just get one colour when you buy an outfit - you receive whole fatpacks of colours for under $300. Worth checking out!

Pose - International Model 14 #2
Wearing -
Pluto and Europa from XTC

Valentines Day is coming up, and nothing says "love" like a sexy leather me anyway. I'll be buying them for myself this year, but maybe you have a sexy other half to buy this for, or buy it yourself and wear it for them. Either way, it will add something to your night! Check out the range of sexy leather teddies in XTC asap!

Cafe Table and Chairs from Jazzy's Home Furnishings

Nothing beats kicking back and relaxing, and a finishing touch to any home is a cafe set where you can enjoy time with someone special. Complete with a male and female pose on the chairs, this set is just the thing...and at only $39 from Jazzy's Home Furnishings, you cannot go wrong!

Pose - Hot Chica #7
Wearing -
Colour Me Stars Tatt from El Oh El

El Oh El is back and while I was looking around, I stumbled on this cute tatt which is their epic week one giveaway. Its well worth check out as by the sounds of things there will be a new one next week, the week after that etc. There's a MM and some cute items in store for you to buy, so check them out!
