Chillaxing

I’m chilling today so forgive the lazy picture, but I had some stuff to share so I wanted to do something at least!

First of all I wanted to tell you about a new store called Foppish, which you can find on the marketplace here. They have some cute, mesh items and this fringe top is one of my favourites. It comes in a bunch of different colours with different prints on the front and it’s great for days like today when I just want to sit around in my house in jeans and a tee, but it could so easily be pulled in to other outfits and really give an edge. There were a couple of small issues for me, first of all it’s not textured on the inside which I’m not particularly fussy about but the sizing was a bit off and I found that it sat just a tad high over my body, so that from certain angles the alpha beneath or the invisible inner texture was showing. These things aren’t deal breakers for me when I buy things (unless it’s extreme, which this wasn’t), but it would just be nice if they weren’t there. Since Foppish is a new store I’m sure there will be improvements as more stuff is released, so I’m excited about this brand, it’s definitely one to keep an eye on.

Finally a brief mention about my hands. “Your hands? Are those mesh hands you’re wearing Miss Lacey?” Why yes, they are! This is just a sneak peek of the newest release that will be coming soon from Korundi, and I can tell you, they’re amazing! I always hate the way my system hands turn out in pictures, but these have had no liquify in Photoshop at all and I just love them. If you want to know when they’ll be available, be sure to add Korundi and Shansa’s Flickr stream and join the group!

Shyla

Belleza put a spanner in the works for me yesterday when they released this new skin Shyla. As we know my day to day skin is Jen by League, I wear others from time to time when I’m taking pictures and as much as I liked them, none of them struck me as something I would wear 80% of the time. So I was happy enough to stick with Jen and just recently updated my profile picture and everything with it. Then Shyla arrived.

I’m super fussy about my every day skin and while I love my others that I wear for pics, they just don’t feel like me. But Shyla does. The body is nice and natural like most Belleza skins, not shiny or over shaded, and the face has just the right amount of make up for daily wear. Usually I’ll find that I love a face on a skin, except for the lips, or I love the lips but the rest has too much make up, but this all fits perfectly. The tones are natural, not greyish or dull and I love that you can buy the lipstick layers separately, I only wish that I could get eye shadows the same way! But I can’t have it all I guess.

So right now I’m sorely tempted to start wearing this every day, the only thing that’s stopping me is that I feel like I look sad. I know I have my lips with a slight down turn most of the time, but I think with this skin it’s the eyebrows. They look like sad eyebrows to me. You can’t notice it so much in the picture here because I have a hair with bangs, and generally I do prefer hairstyles like that so I don’t think it’s going to be too much of an issue. Considering how much I love this skin I don’t think that getting used to that slight sad look is going to be a problem, so for now I’ll keep wearing it and see how I feel every day!

Overall this is my favourite release from Belleza ever. So go try it!

Real life has been keeping me busy at weekends lately, but it’s a nice treat to get in world at the start of the week and find some new releases that were out while I was gone.

These boots are the new release from Leverocci and I love them. They’re the kind of thing you could wear with almost any outfit to add instant sexiness and I’m never gonna complain about a bit of help in that department! So these boots were my favourite of the Leverocci releases, but they also introduced a sub brand called Belgravia which you really should check out, they have the most gorgeous mesh fur (relax people, it’s only pixels) coat which I think will find it’s way in to my inventory very shortly.

Anyway I put together the boots with some other pieces that are recent (not new) but that I hadn’t gotten around to blogging yet. I’ve been wearing this mesh tank from Emery to death over the last couple of weeks or so, along with the Melinda mesh necklace from Korundi and I love the leather leggings that Tres Blah released for C88. I resisted buying mesh leather pants until these were released, but then I’m always a sucker for Tres Blah stuff.

The hairband is by LaGyo and you can find it at the latest round of TDR, it’s scripted to colour change like most LaGyo items these days, so easy to pair it up with outfits. Also love this mesh hair from Lamb! The messy, natural look is totally my thing and it’s made a nice change from all the updos I’ve been wearing lately.

I’ll try not to be so slack with my postings again, but look, I did redo the look of my blog yesterday! Hope you like it, I do!

FLF Goodies and a Zebra

Just a quick snap to show you a couple of new goodies! First of all my favourites from this weeks FLF, these cute mesh glasses from Ison and this cropped tank from Tulip! Both of these stores are quickly becoming firm favourites for me and it always gets me excited when I see them on the FLF list, I can’t wait to see more new items from them both.

Now on to my zebra. I’ve written recently about Korundi, which is a new mesh jewellery store by Shansa Resident. During a conversation with her yesterday, I mentioned how there were a lot of panda and owl jewellery pendants etc around in SL, but no zebras! I showed her a picture of a ring with a zebra head on it that I have in real life (yes, I have a thing for -fun- jewellery, it’s my mother’s fault) and said I’d love to see something similar in SL. Well a mere 3 hours later, a zebra head ring was dropped in to my inventory and I let out a big squee! So today Shansa made a full set, the zebra ring, this necklace that I’m wearing and some matching earrings, all mesh and only 149Ls for the set! You can find Korundi jewellery on the marketplace here, lots of new things are being added almost daily so keep checking back!

Izzie

As you know I definitely class my usual looks as more of a casual, girl next door type, rather than high fashion, or a sex kitten or glamour puss type. I tend to blog things that I’ll wear on a day to day basis and feel comfortable in but this new Izzie hair from Truth gave me a chance to create a look that is a break from the norm for me.

It’s mesh and comes with a HUD to change the streak colours, as well as the bow which is an extra and is scripted to colour change with a touch. Definitely a great style for anyone going for a punky type look, and I love the variety of colours that you get from Truth too. Pink is always a favourite for me when I want to do something different.

So now I’m off to sit and look at myself with the pink hair and big pink lips while I look forward to the weekend!

Two posts on a Monday, I guess I had a restful weekend!

Just a couple of new things to show you in this pic. Another new release from Truth, this mesh hairstyle Bria is just yummy. It comes with a colour change hud so that you can change the colours of the clips and the way it just lays over one shoulder is super sleek and flattering for any outfit.

Also this mesh dress by LOQ which as at the latest round of TDR Blue. I love anything with poppies on it so I had to pick this up, of course the fact that it was super cheap (70Ls, I think?) didn’t hurt one little bit!

That’s definitely all from me today, hope you all enjoy the week ahead.

At The Beach House

Making the most of the summer at the beach house these last few days! I have a few new things to show you here so let’s start at the top.

First of all this hair is one the latest releases from Truth. If you want cute, this hair haz it. (Yes I spelt haz like that on purpose, it’s cool lol speak). As soon as I tried it on, a voice inside my head said “awww that’s CUTE!!” and probably some other things that were close to squeeing. It’s not mesh so is easily modifiable, and the hairband is colour change so perfect to mix and match with outfits.

The glasses I’m wearing are from Artilleri at Vintage Fair, which is still open for a few more days! Undoubtedly the lag is going to be a lot lower now so if you were waiting to go then don’t forget! Or if you’ve been already now is usually a nice time to pop back so you don’t have to fight the crowds and can pick up anything you might’ve missed before.

This mesh, frill top is available from Baiastice at the latest round of TDR Blue, so you can pick it up for a steal (70Ls I think it was) and these mesh shorts are by Teefy at this months’ FaMESHed. You still have a few more days before FaMESHed starts their change over too, so make sure you check it out if you haven’t already!

That’s all for now, I need to go and enjoy a bit more of the sunshine.

Autumn is Coming – LOTD

As the end of summer is approaching Maitreya have made their “Summer Part 2″ release. These items are perfect for that change of season.

The tunic is a must have for when the evening breeze turns a bit cooler, and I just know that I’m going to wear these boots to death. Being a massive “flats” fan and more of a casual girl they’re pretty much an essential for me.

I’m also wearing some new mesh bangles by Korundi (I told you she was working hard to put out new items every day or two!). When Shansa first told me she was going to start making mesh jewellery I practically begged her for bangles and bracelets as I probably have the hardest time finding ones that I like over any other accessory. I have a couple of pairs that aren’t even mesh, but that I wear all the time, so I was especially happy when she released these earlier on today.

If you haven’t been to Maitreya yet make sure you do, and check out Korundi’s new bits on the marketplace!

Introducing Korundi

Hi guys! It’s been a few days I know, but I’m back and with some great information for you!

This post is to tell you about some new mesh jewellery coming from a new store called Korundi. Korundi is the baby of Shansa Resident (aka Cherry Sautereau). Cherry has dabbled in making things for a couple of years now, and has an existing store selling fantasy clothing, but recently she began to play with mesh and for a total of just 7 days now, she’s been making mesh jewellery and is now making it available for all!

At the moment Korundi has a limited inventory, which you can find on the marketplace here but Shansa is working hard to grow and is currently turning out new items every 1-2 days. I think for a one week old jewellery designer she is showing tremendous potential and I am excited to see what new styles are to come.

Korundi offers a range to suit most tastes, with both classic and contemporary styles and as we know anything mesh is hot right now, which can usually lead to high prices but Korundi are aiming to hit a sweet n low price point so that everyone can afford mesh accessories. All the items are non rigged mesh so you can edit them to fit if needed, but you still get the great high def look that we’re coming to expect from mesh products.

This store and designer is definitely one to keep your eye out for, and I’m looking forward to seeing their growth, so don’t forget to keep checking out the marketplace for their items and hopefully it won’t be long before they have an in world presence too!

Cherub

As if Vintage Fair and Collabor88 weren’t enough to make us go broke, there are some fabulous new releases from Mon Tissu and Truth to go with them!

This Soleil hair from Truth was just released and I absolutely adore it. I’m having a bit of an updo phase lately, so this was perfect to add to the collection. It’s not mesh so it’s easy to modify to fit, and the wavy, natural look is just right for that “I don’t need to try, my hair is this fabulous when I wake up” look.

Mon Tissu also blew me away with this gorgeous summer dress. It comes in several different colours and prints so there is something for everyone’s tastes. The flowy cut is so light and breezy and it’s low cut at the sides which adds a casual sexyness to it.

I put it together with the new Cherub jewellery that’s by LaGyo at C88. The necklace, earrings and ring are all available seperately for 88Ls each, and the necklace is scripted to texture change so great to match with any outfit!

Short and sweet post today, it is the weekend after all!
