Did someone say SL event?…

Starry, starry night at Ann’s Place of Grace. I’ve slipped into Wild Orchid Diamond Tears, a cool, silk number that we all adore. I’m wearing MINA Hair – Maria Unrigged V01, Maitreya Mesh Body – Lara V4.1., TuTy – Adored Girl Bento AO Priority 3 & 4.

I finally have the opportunity to share all the wonderful dresses, shoes and accessories I’ve learned about through SL blogs and what Sandy and Talia have selected for us. I must confess that even though I’ve been on SL for ten years, I found it difficult to part with my classic body. I hear you giggling. I know change is inevitable, but I’m not one to set it in motion virtually without a gentle push from my friends. Sandy had to talk me through mesh application step by step. I must admit that now that I have graduated to a Maitreya body, I’m loving the ease of use of the system. No more worrying about attaching feet or if the shade matches my body.

On to shopping, what we love talking about…

There were so many SL Christmas events, I didn’t know what to go to at first. I spent hours at the Shop & Hop Holiday Shopping event. There were so many free gifts, I haven’t even opened them all. The layout was similar to an indoor mall. Then there was the Swank Event, Sense, Okinawa New Year Festival, Equalro, Jumo, Cosmopolitan, and a visit to the LUXE Paris Fashions Store because I loved their dresses.

What’s interesting about all these events is that you are introduced to fashion creators you’d probably never knew existed. I knew about LUXE, but ninety percent of the others I hadn’t heard of.

Red is my favorite color, so when I saw this LUXE vanity dress, in the center, at one of the events, it immediately was on my “must get” list. Love that color hair, too!

Where’s the salon?

At the Jan. 2019 Salon 52 event, which opened Jan. 10, I learned about Mina Hair. I was totally impressed with the style. This is a bi-monthly event for everything hair related. It was previously called Hairology.

There were two buildings. One was for Mina hairstyles and the other a selection of multiple hairstyling vendors, all high quality, well presented, and watch out you will  want them all.

How adorable is this style from KMH? Center bottom, #106, fatback is L550.

TWE12 opens the 12th of each month and runs through the last day. January’s theme was “Wonderland,’ always a playful, fantasy theme. Truth or Dare Affair is slated for Feb. 4. Exploring the main vendor area is always my favorite part of the adventure. But make sure you pay attention and wander through the exterior landscape. You’ll never know what stores are beyond the main area.

What I saw: colorful nails, sexy outfits, shapes, eyes, men’s shirts, tattoos, poses.

Ten years ago, when I came in-world, I would have never seen such a beautiful promotion. Today, it is just as important as the item sold. This is Window Wonderland from Something New. Includes 3 single poses and props.

Our journey begins to find glamorous fashions to wear during Austin’s sets

Who are Austin’s Angels?

Those who follow Austin Moores around the metaverse have seen, heard and laughed with the Angels. We are his support system. Our lives revolve around his scheduled sets and we’re proud to stand behind his artistic endeavors. Sandy, who is our manager, enjoys her daily shopping trips or marketplace hunts so that we can wear both casual outfits or be dressed in elegant formal gowns. She and Talia, and sometimes KittySweetKitty, create stages with bold colors, style and movement in mind. Soskat is kind enough to join us when an Angel is unable to participate. She’s are Angel sister and a devoted fan.

Talia slipped me this note….Talia Sunsong enjoys touring Second Life and Opensim as a dancer with Austin and the Angels. She is a creator, writer and roleplayer who can sometimes be seen carrying a spirited baby dragon.

Sandy is sharing a bit about herself….Hi All. I’m Sandy Hauster and I’m proud to say I’m one of Austin Moores Angels. I’ve been working with him as a back-up dancer for the last six months or so and still enjoy the heck outta it. In my entire nine years as a resident of SL, this is high on my list of fun jobs. When I came to SL, I had no aspirations of becoming a back-up dancer. Just like everyone else, I was here to escape the real world for a while and get a chance to meet and chat with people from around the world. Remembering back to when I first joined, I know I’ve come a very long way. I’m grateful to the people that helped me figure that walking around bald and naked with a pose stand on my hand wasn’t as much fun as it could be. There are patient and kind souls out there that taught me to walk and talk and open boxes and that TP didn’t stand for toilet paper. Many thanks to all of the wonderful friends I’ve made.

Then there’s the boss…

Austin Moores sings live in both Second Life and open sim venues. His love for music comes through with contemporary songs or popular hits from yesteryear. Let’s not forget the country songs and those that have you laughing while you dance.

So what’s this blog about?

Who doesn’t love fashion? It’s enviable that if you’re wrapped up in the workings of a virtual world that you always want to put your best fashion foot forward.

So we are.

We have found that in no time at all we have accumulated a lot of fashion info. What woman doesn’t love a sale? OM gosh, we simply can’t ignore them. So we would like this blog to not only provide you pictures and info about Austin’s sets on SL and opensim, but we would like to share new fashion finds that are sexy, but cover your bits and have prices so tempting that you can’t turn away. With a little luck we’ll provide men’s wear finds as there are a lot of men who are Austin’s fans, as well.
