Our model today is wearing Amarelo O Manga  - Pamela suit, blazer and pants, c/w shoes and sunglasses.
Skin is from :: WoW Skins::  the bold collar is from BEPPIN!  where to find these items.. Designer Circle of courses.
Inside is also brand new... the billboard you see here is for Shape Kerry, Body by Coco  -  (right) Jewelry by Modern Couture, Sunflower to see it at its best you'll have to come down...
Photo buffs, posers out there, Icons of Stylel   offers up a group of  poses each round, and each one is worth having in your inventory.  Summer is coming, you'll be looking for fun poses for the beach and various parties. NOw is the time to come and pick up this pack of Lira poses.  55L

A gentle reminder.  When buying a mesh product, TRY THE DEMO.
AND. when purchasing shoes and nail adornments, make sure you are buying what you require .  If the nails are for Slink hands and you don't have slink hands...... same applies to shoes... more and more designers are supplying a shoe   for the Slink foot.  it should always say on the marketing vendor.
See small icon/logo  in upper left corner of this vendor board. Not everyone wears a Slink appendage. Buyer be aware!

In several conversations of late with readers, we have heard of the dissatisfaction with some of the mesh products, especially clothes, where the alpha is longer than the skirt or outfit, where there is a gap between the bodice and the arm of the  top, it seems that the complaints run long and plenty.  The difficulty in matching skin tone to the avatar skin when buying shoes with skin huds. The list goes on and on.

We can only reiterate time and time over, be aware of what you are purchasing. The designer is not going to go out of his/her way to sell you an inferior product.  Be nice, sit down and write a note card to the designer, or their store manager and explain your dissatisfaction. 9 times out of 10 they will be more than happy to replace the product or explain to you what steps need to be taken for the fit to work.  Always try the demo, never assume it will be the same as the last item you bought from the designer.  Each item has its own template, or unique design, unless the product is exactly the same item just a different texture.

We decided to try the new mesh avatar... it was a very short lived experiment.  Within a couple of hours, we gave up and returned to the shapes and skins we know and love.  Our model looked like a female dracula in drag. Even for ghoulish events, we would have hesitated in sending her out. Is it new technology to have to put yourself together like Frankenstein.  Mesh head, add on hands, add on feet, this is called improvement..oh and lets not forget, the nails, eyelashes, cheek huds, etc, etc.

Somewhere, the idea of having an avatar has gotten twisted and distorted. We members of the SL community who live and work in SL are not wanting to become robots. or pieces of this and that.  Our avatars are who we are.  Last time I looked, all my extremities belonged to me.

Products shown in this blog are available at the new Designer Circle. The dependable down to earth, designer discount shopping store.

His music style had everyone in the place dancing close the enjoying themselves at 7: something AM  SL time.

Bogart's Jazz Club and Shops - Entertainment,  for those of you who are unfamiliar with Bogarts it is a  Jazz Club that feature a romantic, elegant place for meeting and dancing in an upscale classic nightclub. It is an arm of Frank's.  Both are formal attire required, but where Frank's requires membership, Bogarts does not.  Also in our experience, this is where the more "mature" " elites " gather...
Our model today is wearing the lovely gown being offered by [[Masoom]]
Glam-mood is a mesh dress that has a very nice fall to it, the off the shoulder warp gives a very sophisticated look to the otherwise simple classic lines of the gown. the model's shape and her makeup are also from this round of the Designer Circle.    ::Wow Skins::  and Anna shapes     > taxi in side bar

Nashville Music Row

The Stage on Nashville's Music Row,   nashville, music row, tennessee, country music, grand ole opry, ryman auditorium, tootsies, the stage, the bluebird, country, music, live music, live performers

It is a big club, lots of room to move and dance without trampling on the dancer next to you.  Plus an area to the back of the club for those who like to dance close and slow no matter what anyone else is doing.  Lots of live entertainment, plenty of good music and people to enjoy the sounds with.

Our model was having a grand time flirting with Music row's Hank Williams Sr. Mr Williams seems to be on 24/7. We actually had to come back at a time where there was no performance happening. We were there when Eliz Watanabe was on, the place was jumping there was no way we could get pictures.   Eliz is one act you don't want to miss, come early when she is on if you want to dance where you can see her. You can check her profile for her schedule, if you enjoy her as much as we did, join her fan group.
For more pictures of the club, see flickr - taxi in side bar.

Outfit the model is wearing including shoes, Colorful romper - Stars Fashion. earrings are also part of the deal  Hair - Truth Carli

The place was empty but the music playing was toe tapping and hard to resists =^_^=... Come on down!  don't miss out on the fun.
