The Miamai Blogger Scavenger Hunt

Hello lovelies! How excited are all of you for the new spring line from Miamai? We certainly are excited to bring it to you! Monica and Pill have both put a lot of effort into this line and we know all of you are going to enjoy it greatly.

If you haven’t heard about Miamai‘s scavenger hunt you can find all the details by following this link! You could be one of three lucky people to win the entire Luxe collection, including all the shoes!

Inspiration comes in many shapes and sizes. Sometimes when looking at clothing in Second Life it’s quite obvious where the content creator has drawn their inspiration from, others not so much. With this collection the inspiration came from many places however the very first piece that was released as a preview actually came  as inspiration to Monica Outlander not through fashion but through her art. Vali Myers was a talented artist in so many ways. If you’ve never heard of her I highly suggest you take a few moments to research the sultry siren.

Best of luck to those on the hunt and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Saturday as I can! I’ll be MCing with Sofia Diage at the release party. If any of you remember our shenanigans from the Miss Virtual World pageant in December I am certain you can imagine just how much fun it’s going to be without us being censored! Woo!

The Futurewave

There are so many events going on right now there are far too many for me to keep up with. I’d love to be able to have the time to blog all of them but sadly I do not. I am a sucker however for Monica Outlander’s face tattoos so when she popped a few out for the Futurewave event I had to force myself to take a few minutes (okay hours) to shoot and edit a picture for it. These are actually two of her tattoos layered. All three of the tattoos she made for the event are tintable so you can make them whatever color you wish which turns out to be pretty handy.

FacepaintThe new ISON necklace at the new round of Collabor88 has been taunting me since opening day. It took me four different teleports with three different logins to purchase this darned thing.. but I finally got it. There is nothing worse than going negative linden every single time you try to purchase something. The same thing kept happening to me at Fameshed when I was trying to purchase these earrings from Cae. Anyone know why that is happening to me?

I’ve been pretty sick the past few weeks, that coupled with my time constraints has gotten me seriously backed up with blogging. In fact, I don’t know if I am going to actually catch up. I am finally starting to feel better though so hopefully I can catch up with everything before editing week for Love To Decorate!

Lights out..

I’ve always made fun of people who lose track of their days, until today that is. I honest to goodness thought today was Tuesday until about 4:30pm. I’ve worked every day for the past three weeks (yes, even Christmas ugh!) and I seriously lost track of my days. Imagine my confusion when Kallisto Destiny of DRIFT tossed her Fifty Linden Friday item on me.. on a Monday.. OOPS! I suck Kalli! DRIFT‘s FLF item is this nifty white cotton tank. Seriously, everyone needs one. It fits perfectly under so many different shirts and is comfy just by it’s self too!

In case you didn’t catch my previous post, Legal Insanity is running a 50% off sale this weekend. This little denim skirt is from there and just so happens to be my favorite of the variety. I highly suggest you drop by! DaTrip doesn’t do sales like these often! Don’t whine later when you missed it cause I told you so!

New from Miamai!

As most are aware I was one of two hosts for Miss Virtual World 2014  that was held on December 14th. I was actually pretty terrified about doing it. I’ve been a guest on many live shows and I’ve worked countless numbers of live shows both as a model and production/backstage crew. However, I’ve never actually hosted and certainly never had to be live and on air for seven straight hours!

Miss Virtual World is a grueling competition that lasts for months. In 2010 I was Miss Virtual World Brazil, so I knew what these girls were going through. There were many times when my co-host, the lovely Sofia Diage had to swoop in and save me. I am glad she knew me well enough to be able to tell when a subject was starting to choke me up. I am a very emotional person by nature and being a Miss was something that I took very seriously, still do in fact. I think I only cried on air twice in the seven hours and I didn’t say a single bad word despite the many times I was baited to do so.

When I learned that I was going to be hosting I knew I had to be fabulous. I retired from the fashion world two years ago next month but there was NO way I was going to be anything less than fabulous. So, I went running to Monica Outlander of Miamai. You see, Monica does absolutely fabulous things with mesh and I knew that she would be able to deliver on what my minds eye had envisioned. She went above and beyond my expectations and even surprised me by adding my gown to her coveted BlackLabel collection.

MiaMai_BL_ShaeYou see, each year Monica releases a special collection under the title “BlackLabel.” It is a highly anticipated release that you never quite know what it will entail. The release shows have been some of the best shows on the grid. It’s just an event/collection that you don’t want to miss ever. One of her BlackLabel gowns was even named as one of Second Life’s Twenty  most beautiful gowns by The Best of Second Life Magazine in 2011. So when she told me that she was going to be adding my gown to the esteemed collection I nearly fainted!

MiaMai_BL_Shae_Back There are so many details in this gown, layers upon layers.. pearls, flowers.. multiple fabrics in lavender some patterned and others sheer and silky. There are also many details in indigo that are seen in the flowers. It also is materials ready! I spent hours moving my camera around myself watching the sheer bits sway from lavender to indigo.. it’s truly a work of art and I was extremely proud to represent the brand of Miamai on the stage. Thank you Monica for saving my tush!

MiaMai_BL_Shae_DetailsWhen it came to accessorizing the gown I knew that I had to wear my Miss Virtual World finalist headband that can be seen in the second image. I haven’t had many opportunities to wear it since it was gifted to me so I knew I had to incorporate it somehow. Turns out, it fit very nicely around the D!va Hair I chose to wear with the gown.. which was another no brainer for me. I love the whimsical feeling of D!va Hair. But when it came to the necklace, well the necklace was a completely different story.

You see, in Second Life it’s quite common to go over board with life in general. Jewelry is normally extremely lavish and over the top which was not at all right for this gown. With all the action going on I knew I needed something elegant and dainty. Insert Caelan Hancroft designer of Cae here. I discovered Cae a few months ago and have been a fan since. Simple elegance is what I needed and when she saw my dress and handed me the diamond solitaire necklace she delivered! It was exactly what I needed to complete my fabulosity! Thank you Caelan for coming to my rescue so quickly. I owe you!

I’ve been getting a TON of IMs in world about my dress asking when it will be for sale so.. I’m happy to say you can go buy it now!! You’ll find it in the “BlackLabel” section at the main Miamai store. I certainly hope you feel like a princess when you put it on, I know I do… I may or may not still be running around Second Life in it… *blinks*

New from Vanity Hair and Cae

I am probably a little behind but the new Fameshed opened and there is of course some awesome stuff up for grabs. I am wearing one of the ten charm necklaces Cae has out called Hope. It’s super delicate, not normally my thing but when I saw it I couldn’t walk away. Vanity Hair also released this hair over the weekend called Sexy Kitten. I have a serious thing for hairstyles of this variety lately. Guess I am in a phase!

Vanity Hair

As a side note: A lot of people know I have a thing for containers.. y’know.. the kind that content creators package their stuff in. I am just as excited to see what the packaging looks like as I am to get to what’s inside a lot of the time. If I like them they almost always end up somewhere around my house. Shoe boxes especially. The packaging for Cae’s jewelry is SO cute! I seriously prefer big, chunky jewelry so this was my first purchase from Cae. I’ve no clue if the packaging has always been like it is now but I’m glad I have it. New deco item! Yay!
