As promised, today I’ll be featuring This is a Fawn’s Leda dress by OMGWTF Barbecue.fawn1

In reading OMGWTF’s blog I learned that this dress was inspired by Rodarte’s earliest collections which incorporated cobwebs of lace and transparency in beautiful watercolours  reminding viewers of Leda and the Swan.   The result is a semi-transparent, babydoll-esque dress complete with hammered bustier and panties aptly named, Leda.  And don’t forget the foof! Very foofy.

I certainly appreciate the reason for the transparency, however for me personally it walks the fine line between dress and lingerie.  That’s the beauty about this dress is it can really be either!


You can see in my first picture I’ve left the transparency settings as is (40), however, the skirt is mod and by setting the transparency to zero you can really see the texture work and soft gradient colour. What you can’t see is the panties and skin.  This would be my personal preference for wear around the grid, with the former being reserved for photos and more intimate scenarios.  Yes, I’m a prude.

The quality and quantity of OMGWTF’s collection is certainly increasing and I look forward to seeing what This is a Fawn’s new mainstore will hold.  You can look for the grand opening tomorrow, July 11th from 7PM – 9PM SLT at the Starlust which promises new releases, sale items, and music.  And in the meantime, check out her moving sale with 50% off of everything and a new item in the lucky chair.  Last day!

I have a few new(ish) faces I’d like to introduce you to..


Annyka Bekkers is back with a new line of Blowpop skins and while I’ve always been impressed with her work, this newest bunch has blown away previous expectations.

Each name not only has a distinct range of skin tones and makeups, but the facial details completely transformed the look of my avatar from one skin to the next.  It should be noted that I used the same shape for each, so you can really see the difference the skin makes.

Each makeup also comes with two different lip options ending the battle of nude vs. bold.  If you’re an indecisive shopper like I tend to be, having the choice of both in one purchase should prove very helpful.  And for the eyebrow girls, it also includes three different shapers.


For me, the face always sells the skin, but there are two areas of the body I pay particular attention to – the collarbone and the abdomen.   Both are done exactly the way I would hope.  The collarbone is beautiful enough to catch the eye, but doesn’t protrude unecessarily and the abdomen is shaded to perfection without falling in to the six pack trap.

If you’ve got a partner, chances are there are other parts of your body he/she cares more about, but they’ll be happy too! Annyka’s attention to detail fully extends to the umm.. centre of the blowpop and she makes the cutest bums.

I guess what I’m trying to say is – if God is in the details then hallelujah Annyka!

P.S. I’m partial to Ava.
