The Candy Factory - A New Flavor Every Month!

Vacation Time – Uber

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

There are some great new releases out for Uber – another new venue. I like venues, actually; you get to see so many designs all packed in together. Works for me as I am not one that loves to shop :D.

This leather and net beach tote with holds (left arm or right hand) comes in many many colors. The texturing and details are excellent.  Look for the ISON booth — well actually the “booth” part is a guess as of course I can’t get into the sim! it is packed and I am guessing difficult to move in as I see about 20 dots all on top of each other. The shopanistas are definitely having fun.

Baiastice had a great retro swimsuit and beach dress release called Candy. Ten color choices are available.

The yellow is definitely sizzling!

And from Sway’s a darling souvenir jar.

Three styles are available and you can even add your own photo (some building skills required).

Retro and Vintage

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

This months theme for The Challenge is “Retro – Vintage” and that covers lots of territory. It was fun to see what the adjectives meant to different folks. I imagine some nostalgia came into play along the way.

Here are the full of the designs. See the whole list here.

After 6 Days

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Another new venue has appeared — and I bet you aren’t surprised.

This one has a twist however, and I will let you read about the intricacies at the official website.

Baiastice has a big selection of mix and match tops and skirts as offerings. Both prints and plains are represented; the blouse comes with and without feathers. Well I love feathers, so it was an easy choice for me.

There is also an angelic French horn as a welcome gift and a stellar photo op area right next door :D.  So definitely journey over!

Manly Stuff

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

If you have a guy that is wardrobe challenged — and one that is a cowboy at heart, 20.FIVE has a new ONE PIECE outfit that might be perfect. One mesh addition and and alpha and they are set. Well the hat is separate of course. Now this will not work for all guys, it is designed for the smaller members of the sex (no XL size and runs small), so be sure and check out a demo. A vest comes with for the cold winter mornings.

These poses are from flowey at the Mens Dept. You have just a bit of time left to get over and pick these up.

I know how hard it is to make realistic poses for the guys — well maybe not so much if you ARE a guy, but still — these are very realistic.

Coffee and Cigarettes

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

22769 ~ [bauwerk]  has a new  Bistro Set out for the L’Amitie Summer Market. It comes with some great animations as well as coffee and sandwich (whole wheat of course; we want to stay healthy). I downsized the table a bit for these photos and added the really excellent astray and cigarette prop from a 22769 ~ [bauwerk]  main store recent release.

There are some lovely details in this set. Quite posh and European.

My outfit is newly out from 20.FIVE and made up of separates (color change by hud of course). The Cami Top and Skinny Jeans (just above the ankle and fit nicely with some rigged mesh boots) are perfect for summer weather.

The Peaceful Garden

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

It is a serene stroll through The Garden this month. Fully into the summer season for us north of the equator folks, many designers are on holiday.

But quality always wins over quantity for me (yes, especially with chocolate) and there are some very nice items out for your decorating pleasure.

This Isabelle vanity from {what next} includes color change menu and both animations and static poses.  It is PERFECT for hair shots “wink”.

From the notecard:

It’s available as a set, or decor sold separately and comes with 10 custom animations with self-rezzing beauty props including lipstick, nail polish, mascara, nail file, hairbrush, powder compact, blusher/brush and also 7 static poses for photography. Table/stool and fabric all have texture options and the full set is 9 land impact.

My outfit consists of two separate releases from 20.FIVE; the Evangelie Top and Rabarbar leggings. Both are color change and complement each other well. The top runs small; the pants to size.

Super long and definitely sleek, the Reaching Edges hair by Vanity Hair is very modelesce! Add a huge range of colors by hud and you have a very fashionable release.

SLink shoes by Mon Cheri.

And if spiffying up your living room is more on your agenda, this classic Helena sofa and armchair from Atelier Visconti might be just what you need. All but the table come with an extensive and easy to use color change huds. The rug is part of the coordinating release.

So head on over and take a stroll. The Garden is always a beautiful spot for some easy exercise  — and shopping.

A Painterly Affair

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

The queen of niche-ness has done it again.

Out for Fifty Linden Friday from Second Spaces — the Refresh – Scout’s Dresser’ set. It adds so much to the storyline.

Don’t miss out!

Latin Flavor

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

After a very long photo shoot, this was the winner.

I wanted  to dance you see. This new little skirt from Ducknipple may be leather but it really reminded me of Salsa dancing. A brand new head turning hair from Miamai, Ferina @ Hair Fair definitely had me in the mood.

I found a lovely setting, played with Windlight and started through my static dance poses. You know what? None of them worked.

Those of us that have been around for awhile KNOW our 2003 or before avatars were never designed optimally. I found myself really wanting that mesh body. But of course these clothes wouldn’t have worked with that mesh body. So for now we are at a crossroads.

Meanwhile. Great hair; great skirt; great pose. Ya gotta flow around those rocks now and then. It is worth it.

You know by now that the skirt is color change by hud :D

For the Gothic gals that love gachas, out from Blue Blood for The Witching Hour  two new releases — this being Acasia.  Plenty of colors to try for, standard sizes are included.

My hair is a new release from ISON @ Hair Fair — Ruler.  Color choice is by hud. This is very natural looking hair, and if you (like me) don’t often look good in center parts — give this one a try!
