NV Me

One of the most erotic and sensual pieces of lingerie you could buy yourself is a corset. However, nice corsets in-world are a bit of a rarity. Most that I’ve come across come on layers (jacket, shirt, etc). The corsets from NV Corsetry, however, are attachments that you can adjust to your shape with a simple resize script. Some may be a bit intimidated when it comes to resizing.  They’re either afraid they’ll warp their new purchase into a big mess, but trust me…if I can do it, you definitely can. Just make a copy before you start (just in case!)

I really liked the corset with the “pink skully” design.  It has an EGL/vintage feel to it. When resizing it, I decided to keep it a bit on the longer side, which is part of the beauty of this corset. You can adjust it to fit the look of any outfit you happen to be wearing. The hot pink color demands attention when you enter a room. I paired the look with accessories from Lolapop! – the hat and jewelry really compliment not only the corset, but the outfit as a whole.

 

Skully Pink

 

I like well-designed back portions of outfits, and this one does not disappoint. I really like the laces and bow.

 

Gratuitous back shot.

 

The winter nights are cold, so why not make things red hot with this little number? You won’t need to turn the thermostat up when you’re wearing this.

 

Just hangin' around in my corset :)

Vintage chic from Sascha’s Designs

It’s been quite a while since I last posted on Opium Insight and I have to say…I missed it greatly. I hope to make post frequently on here once again! Today I’ve got the honor of showing off my new coat from Sascha’s Designs! Since fall is now upon us and we’re looking forward to cooler weather, this jacket definitely fits the season. As many of you know, the Vintage Fair is also going on right now, so I’ve been somewhat stuck in a 70′s kind of mood as of late. This jacket seriously has a funkalicious vintage vibe, but can also be worn in a more toned down, classy manner if you so desire!

 

 

Most people tend to favor warmer colors in the autumn for obvious reasons (I’m a fan of the warmer tones, I admit) & I’m loving the jacket in this tone, however it also comes in white, pink, lavender, black and purple for those who tend to gravitate towards those colors, so there’s something for everyone.

 

 

 

I had such fun putting this style together. Sometimes when you find a certain item that’s screaming to be worn, building a look from that central item (whether it’s an article of clothing, hairstyle, skin or piece of jewelry) can totally put you in a bubbly mood and make you feel accomplished. I know I feel pretty perky and I’m not usually so chipper on a Monday!

Faster, Pussycat.

Sometimes, life just calls for a retro feel. I get in retro moods every once in a while. In those cases, I’ve always dug through my inventory and thrown on something from Artilleri. Now, there is a new, fledgling store called Faster Pussycat that is aching to make it’s mark in Second Life. I had a look around the store and found some cute and creative outfits, from retro/rockabilly to avant garde to pseudo sci-fi and everything in between. I recommend checking them out!

I really like the textures that designer, Honey Bender, used — especially on the skirt. The prim skirt textures were just as rich as the texture on the glitch pants. I don’t know if this has happened to anyone else…it might just be my Windlight settings, but I’ve found that for some of my prim skirts, I end up having to adjust the color in ‘edit’ mode. Sometimes the prim attachment is lighter or darker than the glitch pants. However, with this skirt, they were spot on. The outfit comes with the belt, necklace, skirt and sweater. It has a sexy nerd feel to it, which I really dig. You could pair this outfit with, say, the ‘Trinity’ hair from Truth and easily pull off a boho look as well.

To complete my look, I threw on some glasses from Artilleri as well as the new hairstyle from fri.day called ‘Hilary’.

Like what you’ve seen? TP to the stores and have a look-see!

Beyonce = Hotness.

Lingerie. Pretty girls. Who doesn’t like both of those? If you’re a pretty girl/hot lingerie lover, be sure to earmark August 20th & 21st on your calendar for Opium Fashion Agency’s Erotica show! You won’t be disappointed, trust me!

The lingerie I’m spotlighting is from Beyonce, which will take part in the aforementioned next installment of Opium Tales’ ‘Erotica’ show. Sensual, sexy and classy. That’s the kind of lingerie I like and that’s what Beyonce delivers. I accessorized with Haus of Darcy’s newest release – Fallen, which is a dark and lovely necklace as well as an old group gift (the earrings) from them. They give my outfit a bit of an edge, don’t you think? I paired my look with some classic black patent leather boots from Bax Coen. Tres bien, non?

My next Beyonce lingerie set is a bra & panty combo. Simple, yet alluring. I decided to keep on my trusty Bax boots and toss on some cool jewelry that I picked up from Lolapop! The hat/choker/bracelets combo are Lolapop!’s items for the Thrifty Goth “Gother Than Thou” hunt. Just look for the skull!

I’m wearing the new skin release from Tuli, called ‘Audrey’. What’s really cool is that it comes with all sorts of makeup layer tattoos (lipsticks, eyelashes, cleavage). It’s a brand new face and it is just gorgeous! If you’re a member of the in-world Tuli group ($250L to join but more than worth it), be sure to scoop up the group gift at her main store location! The hair I’m wearing in my pictures is a new release from fri.day – one of my favorite hair stores!

Boom Boom POW!

Yes, I *am* listening to the Black Eyed Peas right now, thank you very much! It’s summer, that calls for sexy clothes and head-bobbing music!

*BOOM* recently released some really cute bikinis just in time for the hot, hot weather! The bikinis are sexy, fun and really colorful (so you’ll be sure to catch all of the cute boys eyes when you’re wearing their bikinis!) which is what I look for when I go shopping for a bathing suit. So, if you’re looking for a new bikini, definitely check out *BOOM* — you won’t be disappointed.

The bikinis come with several styles: halter & traditional bikini top and boy shorts, thong and two variations of the traditional bikini bottom.

Warning: Pumpkin booty ahead.

Below, I’m showing one of the variations of the traditional bikini bottom (left) and the boy shorts (right).

Again, more booty shots. From left, the thong. On the right is the other tradtional bottom.

Okay, now on to more cuteness. I recently went to booN after realizing that I hadn’t been there in ages. I was really happy when I TP’d there and saw that not only had they added more hair, but that they’ve expanded and started up a clothing brand called SAIKIN, which has both male and female clothing. I was also happy that they have an in-world group. If you join it, you can grab these great group gifts in their notices: jumpers! They have both short and long options. They’re really cute!

Yes, this is my house. For your information: the broken mirror is from + blacklisted + and the awesome bed is from Mudhoney. The open book isn’t included with the bed.

While I was at SAIKIN, I grabbed some pretty $10L bangles (scroll up and check ‘em out on the second picture) as well as this cute, flowy dress. I decided to pair it with this lovely choker from Lolapop! that’s going to be available at the upcoming Etheria – which is going to be really cool. Some awesome jewelry designers pair up with awesome clothing designers and make equally awesome outfits & jewelry combos! As I mentioned, Lolapop! is taking part in this, as well as Blue Blood, Caroline’s, Evie’s Closet, among others. It starts June 13th, so be sure to check it out!

Feelin’ Inspired.

Inspiration can come from so many sources: emotions, music, nature, fashion…or all of them. I was going through my inventory yesterday and decided to take a few pictures with a few choice pieces that really spoke to me (so to speak). Once I completed my outfits, I had to decide on a place to take them. I had fun putting these looks together and I hope you enjoy them as well.

I like accessories. Really, who doesn’t? Anyone can throw on an outfit, but if you accessorize *just* right, you can transform any outfit – no matter how simple – into something that would make the Fashion Gods green with envy. I recently bought one of the new releases from *ARGRACE*, which is a simple but elegant chiffon tunic. I threw on my sexy Stiletto Moody’s (‘Lauren’ in blood leopard), a gorgeous choker from Smooth Designs, one of Exile’s short and flirty new styles (‘Shirelle’) and a fun, sexy hat from House of Nyla to complete my look. I decided to go to House of Nyla’s main store to strike a fashionista pose. Very fitting, huh? :)

I’m also wearing the new release from LeLutka, ‘Lola’ in sunkissed. What I love about this skin is that (if you’re using the 2.0 viewer), you can mix and match your lipsticks with the tattoo layer. If you’re on a budget like I am, just pick out your favorite eye makeup and you’re free to switch up your lip colors with your various outfits! I’m also wearing the uber cool eyelashes that come with the skin. Very sophisticated. Below, you can also get a better view of the hat and the choker.

For my next look, I chose a cute, summery dress that I bought last week, but almost forgot that I had (I’m bad, I know!) from *Yozoh*. The only reason I remembered it was because my friend Lizzie did a post wearing it. So I dug it out of my swollen inventory and began assembling my look. I love Clawtooth’s hair, and Mr. Bubbles has on sale (for the next few days) an updated version of his Roarin’ 20′s hairstyle for the Stumblebum Brigade. You get four hair colors for $200L. Definitely a bargain! What’s different about this version is that the hair is longer. The hat and bow are color changeable. I’m wearing Stiletto Moody shoes (‘Anita’ in nude) as well as a cute basket with food (and a pose!) that I got from D-Lab’s gacha machine ($30L!). I decided to take this picture at my super secret favorite location. If you’ve seen my flickr stream, I’ve taken many pictures here. I love it!

Here’s a close up shot of  the lovely cameo & pearls necklace from Eolande. With the hair/hat & necklace combo, I’ve got a vintage look going on, huh?

For my final look today, I decided that I wanted to take a picture at an AM Radio sim. I love his builds, they’re so nostalgic and they leave you utterly flabbergasted by the sheer magnitude of the builds…the striking realism. His builds are giant works of art. The talent of SLers never ceases to amaze me. Once I settled on a sim, I decided to go with a dress that I purchased at Oyakin. What with my surroundings and the dress that I was wearing, I definitely had a Dustbowl feel going on. Once again, I decided to go with a Clawtooth hair, since Bubbles makes really cute retro styles. I also wanted to use the brand new release from Laqroki (‘Julie’ is for redheads! Total love!) that I had purchased earlier. Keeping with the retro-y feel, I decided to go with the newly released Juicy shoes — their Victorian ankle boots in ‘marshmallow’.

As far as jewelry goes, I went with the dainty and delicate MC Designs set called ‘Wynd’. They provide a lovely balance to my understated look, however, you could easily wear the jewelry set with a ballgown as well.
