A Week’s Worth: Skin Flicks (Friday)

Welcome to the Friday installment of “A Week’s Worth”…

We did it! One whole week of fashion from Skin Flicks. Over the past four days, I have shared some great designs that could be in YOUR inventory. As we wrap up for this month, let’s have a look at a few more finds from Skin Flicks.

Mix and match is the name of the game with this look. Here I am wearing the Christy  pants and the Sasha blouse. Together, its a great look and sorta funky too! I love it for casual Friday or any day really, lol. Both items comes in a variety of colors so you can really have fun with the colors combinations.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s feature on Skin Flicks.  Check back next month when I will bring you great fashions from another SL designer. Until then, happy shopping!

A Week’s Worth: Skin Flicks (Thursday)

Welcome to the Thursday installment of “A Week’s Worth”…

Whether you are looking for something fun and casual or chic and sexy, Skin Flicks has you covered. Besides the fashions I have shown this week, you can find skins, lounge wear and sleepwear (for men too), formal gowns, and shoes (yes shoes!). Honestly, a week is never enough to show what a store has to offer fashionable residents of SL and Skin Flicks is one store that is bursting at the seams.

With summer not too far in the distance, time to think about bright colors and cool waters. This ensemble, called Gemma, puts me in the mood for warmer weather. I love the mixture of orange with the contrasting waistband. Rounding out this resort/ island look are accessories from Swallowtail and hair from Truth.

A Week’s Worth: Skin Flicks (Wednesday)

Welcome to the Wednesday installment of “A Week’s Worth”…

Skin Flicks seems to take the road called patience. Don’t expect new releases to come forth every week or on a consistent cycle. Instead, Mavis McGettigan prefers to take her time. I can only surmise that the periods of inactivity are just the preludes to greatness, lol. But no matter how often (or not) new items are released, the fashions are fresh and timeless– never dated.

The key to these looks is the very versatile, high-waist pant and short combo. The Hallie Pants & Shorts come in a variety of colors. They pair nicely with the Hallie Sweater. Wear the pants when you want a more formal look. The shorts are a great way to make the outfit more casual and playful. Be sure to check out all the other colors in the Hallie collection over at Skin Flicks.

A Week’s Worth: Skin Flicks (Tuesday)

Welcome to the Tuesday installment of “A Week’s Worth”…

Skin Flicks is a brand with “smartness.” You know what that means, right? It’s when someone puts something on and you think to yourself, that is such a smart-looking outfit. In all the clothing, I noticed that the lines are clean and simple but richly textured too.

Sometimes you don’t need wild patterns, funky colors, or a million sculpts and prims to make a sophisticated look. The “Sally” knit dress (don’t you love the rich knit texture on this?) is just that type of look. Clean but with the right amount of color and movement. It comes with two skirt options– with belt and without belt (show above).

A Week’s Worth: Skin Flicks (Monday)

Welcome to this month’s edition of  “A Week’s Worth.” From now until Friday, I will showcase items from one SL designer/brand. This monthly feature is my way of sharing stores with you and to delve more deeply into the fashions. This month, I will share my fashionable finds from Mavis McGettigan and her store, Skin Flicks.

Back in 2007, I was looking for a new skin. I wandered into Skin Flicks (which was on the Boonootoo sim at the time) looking for a dark skin that was advertised. I did find the skin, but I also stumbled upon some excellently made clothing. It was then and there that my love affair with Skin Flicks began.


It’s 2011 and I am still shopping at Skin Flicks. The clothing is fresh, contemporary with a little flair. A simple pair of pants or a blouse is anything BUT simple at Skin Flicks. Here I have paired the Georgette Blouse, with its nicely done ruffle collar, and the Black Linen Flared Pants to create this casually stylish look. Accented with earrings from [glow]  and hair from 3636– this is one look that will turn a few heads.

A Week’s Worth: Meghindo’s (Friday)

Welcome to the Friday installment of “A Week’s Worth”…

We did it! One whole week of fashion from Meghindo’s. Over the past four days, I have shared some fierce designs that could be in YOUR inventory. I hope you visited the main store to see things for yourself. As we wrap up for this month, let’s have a look at some of the other goodies you can find at Meghindo’s.

Not to be outdone by fabulous gowns, funky club and casual wear, and metallics galore– Meghindo’s isn’t just about clothing. Accessories, lingerie, swimwear, and shoes can be found there as well.  Check out this sexy set– called Hoit– in white. You can see the gold “M” right in the middle of the bra and its such a cute touch.

A Week’s Worth: Meghindo’s (Thursday)

Welcome to the Thursday installment of “A Week’s Worth”…

Meghindo’s is another one of those places that does justice to the system skirt. I know many designers (and customers alike) tend to shy away from the system skirt. Heck, I was that way once as I dreaded seeing my avatar and her curves in a system skirt. But once you see it done well and it fits your AV like a glove– the look is just amazing!

Colored in this lovely shade of pink/blush, “Donatella” is just that type of dress. Simple, clean lines with just enough detail on the upper bodice to make it interesting. Priced at only 200L it is very chic dress for a ultra smart price. I paired it with a clutch bag from House of Hucci and earrings from Glow. Tres chic for a date night or some high-end shopping.

A Week’s Worth: Meghindo’s (Wednesday)

Welcome to the Wednesday installment of “A Week’s Worth”…

Like many stores in SL, Meghindo’s has an in-world group. For the 250L join fee, it is well worth the price. You get advanced notice of upcoming releases and sales.  In addition, you also get some wonderful gifts.

Check this smoking hot dress called Jennifer. This was a recent appreciation gift from Meghindo herself. Group members were treated to five different colors of this dress. Like the gown I showed yesterday, Jennifer comes with different skirt lengths. So basically, the group fee more than covered this one gift alone! How sweet is that?

Of course Meghindo’s also has in-store gifts for group members. On the main wall (first floor), group members have access to a variety of freebies like this dress. So cute!

Even with the increases in group allotments, “space” is still a premium. As many stores and brands convert to “VIP” groups its good to know the value of your joining fee. So the bottom line here– it is definitely worth it to join Meghindo’s group.  Do it today!

Shopping at Meghindo’s is a real experience. The store is seven floors of glorious fashions. Shiny metallics. Sparkling jewel tones. Shimmering fabrics. Meghindo’s really knows how make a statement when it come to fierce designs in Second Life.

If I absolutely need a gown that says “WOW”, I go to Meghindo’s because their gowns give me options. For example this one, called Vegas, is done in a lovely metallic silver. As you see above it comes with a well-detailed gown length attachment.

A Week’s Worth: Meghindo’s (Monday)

Welcome to this month’s edition of  “A Week’s Worth.” From now until Friday, I will showcase items from one SL designer/brand. I use this as a way to share stores with my readers and to delve more deeply into the fashions. This month, I will share my fashionable finds from Meghindo’s.

It was a year ago this month that I started shopping at Meghindo’s. I received a notice from one of the in-world fashion groups about the store. Oddly enough it was a sale that brought me to the store. I thought I died and went to heaven.  Opulent. Sexy. Outrageous. Fierce. All words that come to mind when I think of Meghindo’s.

This hot number– called Celine– is just the bomb. This was my first buy from Meghindo’s as it was a very complete look that could be pulled apart and used other ways. It is actually part of the Night Scene– a collection of three outfits for 1000L.

This suit includes the highly textured/detailed black croc leather pants and jacket, as well as the cute wife beater tee, costs only 350L. The peep toe shoes are available for 150L. The finishing touches on this look were bangles and necklace from Armidi.
