“My head’s above the rain and roses”

So, I had an eventful week. I had a birthday. I went to a workshop. I learned that I’m a ‘get appreciated’ personality type (according to the workshop). Good stuff huh? Although, that’s not the most important take away from this week. I also learned I could pass for a real life Laurie should I ever want to change my name.

and-the-truth-thats-in-the-message

The workshop dude thought my name was Laurie. When I first started working with one of my co-workers, she called me Laurie and called another co-worker Lisa whose name was Laurie. I know what you’re thinking because I thought about it for a bit. Unforgettable was my first thought, so I had to do some digging. I mean, my self-esteem was on the line!

I decided a name is just a name. Sometimes, I don’t feel like a Lisa (my formal name is actually Alisa; huh lol), and I feel more like a Laylah. Then there are days I feel like Sunshine. I don’t feel like a Jasmine anymore, though. Those days are over.¬†The moral of my story? Sorry, but I don’t have one. This story is only beginning (or at least in the middle of the book). ūüėČ

“I lost my head again, would you lie for me?”

We all have the ones we love right? Boyfriend, husband, girlfriend, wife, or partner…it doesn’t matter what we call them. It just matters if we can depend on them. The point of my post was actually Egoisme’s Progressive mini dress, but I have to admit it made me feel dangerously sexy, and when women feel sexy, who knows what we can do. Okay, now I sound like a killer, but I swear I’m not!

Progressive

Egoisme’s Progressive dress has other gorgeous prints, so I suggest you head on down there and pick your favorite one. It’s an intoxicating fit, so don’t get too drunk with power ūüėČ

a foreign affair

Yesterday, I had quite the adventure in Milan.

Where is he?

Wearing Prism Babe by Journey – Daisy

The train rolled in, but he wasn’t on board.

Ooh, I wonder where she got her dress.

Wearing Egoisme – Sundress – Watercolors Multi, Evian Petra pale skin, and free Egoisme Smartphone gift

Maybe he missed it. I guess I’ll go shopping as I wait for the next train to roll in.

Milan sightseeing

Gorgeous new gowns…I want them all! Hmm…maybe it’s not wise to shop on an empty stomach.

Wearing Evian Aphrodite pale skin

I’ve been sitting here for hours and still no sign of him.

In the meantime…

Where is she?

Wearing !BeUp! Outfit #3 from SL Fashion Week and Evian Skin Eros

The handsome man wonders¬†where is she?¬†She said she would meet me right here. I suppose I’ll look around, but¬†night is falling. Wait…

“Laylah? Is that you?”

Milan Happy Ending

Yes…a long super long post, but the moral of the story…find your boyfriend before you window shop. Ok, that’s not really a moral. I wanted to just show Egoisme’s gorgeous new mainstore ūüėÄ

According to their press release:

‚ÄúThe new Egoisme store is a new concept; not just a place where you can buy fashion and skins but a piece of RL art in SL.”

Egoisme 1

You can visit the place, learn about it and discover a new world. In Milan this Gallery is called also Milan’s drawing room, or “salotto di Milano” because it is elegant, you can shop and sit in the famous art nouveau style cafe.

Egoisme 2

“Art and fashion in the same place, which is an experience we made years ago and now we bring to next level, using the mesh technology, and new creations in theme. Egoisme will now launch many new pieces with some special offers to celebrate the new store.”

Egoisme 4

“Plus our goal is to produce an Art Expo and we will launch new projects and transform the Egoisme main store into a real place where customers are protagonists and where people can finally discover real life architecture and art in a virtual setting.‚ÄĚ

It’s a beautiful place to take location shots!¬†Take the¬†teleport¬†to Egoisme and see it for yourself.

Egoisme has something new for the ladies, and it’s all about Satin and Silk. It made me feel like vacation for some reason.¬†Do you love to travel? I love to fly in real life because I like to get to my next destination quick. Some argue driving is nice because of the view, but I say the world looks prettier from above.

By the way, ¬†I was in New York this morning, and Egoisme’s strapless top and Satin and Silk pants were the perfect date outfit. The tight mesh pants show off girly curves, and you are able to wear them with high heels or flats because there are two versions.

Aww…my boyfriend doesn’t want to let me go, but I made plans…

Ego New York

…in Hollywood. As the sun sets, Sunshine and I are ready to have a girl’s night out! Another of Egoisme’s releases is the sweet Satin and Silk off shoulder blouse. The strapless blouse and off shoulder blouse have tons of gorgeous colors and prints for you to choose from. You have a choice in the color of pants too.

mood swings

Egoisme’s new sundresses are so elegant. They’re available in a variety of colors and prints too. I love gray and pink combos, so I’m wearing Flower Cart Gray and Pink. Gray can be a moody color, but that’s ok because I’m a moody person.¬†If you’re a moody girl like me, you know that our mood swings can confuse our significant others. We can be cold one moment…

Egoisme Sundress 1

…and hot the next. On a side note, ¬†notice the Egoisme sundress’s silhouette. It really accentuates a woman’s curves.

Egoisme Sundress 2

Along with the sundress, you’ll find Egoisme’s other recent release ¬†Le Fleur. It’s an uber sexy lingerie set and it also comes in other shades and patterns, but all have the beaded fringe texture that decorates the hem.

It’s the perfect piece to seduce your lover in. Shake off that last mood swing and throw on a smile along with new Egoisme lingerie as a sexy surprise.¬†For a ride to Egoisme, click¬†here.¬†

night flight

Sometimes, the only way to travel is to fly. Co*Motion’s wearable prop Night Flight allows one to soar through the skies.

Night Flyer

Night Flight features other colors and it also comes in petite versions, so all you petite avatars can travel in whimsical style too. Of course, one should blend in when flying incognito.

Night Flyer 2

I disguised my Evian Aphrodite skin with its vivid layer. The vivid layers are really awesome because you can tint your skin to whatever color you like while maintaining the features of the skin and shape that you love. Give it a try! Click here for a lift to Egoisme’s main store.

Night Flyer 3

Now when you land, you’ll blend into your surroundings beautifully. Or stand out. It’s up to you and your mission. By the way, my graceful cat like crouch didn’t come ¬†naturally. I had a little help from Mabinogion. They have a variety of role playing poses so check them out at Pose Fair 2013.

Only one more day to get C0*Motion’s Night Flight for a killer price over at Acid Lily, so click here¬†for a ride. Happy weekend!
