Spring It On

Spring It On

See what I did there? With the title?! Bring it on, spring it on! Haha, yea laughing at my own little jokes today, I’m that lame. ANYWAY, I guess I’m pretty early because it is still February but I really cannot wait for spring, I’m so ready!

I got together with my bff4life Harper from Pixel Pantomime coz we’ve been meaning to do another picture together for a while and even though we attempted one last week, I hated everyyyyy picture I took. Some times you just get days like that.

We were inspired by these new hairs from Truth and LeLutka to do kind of hippy style looks, I did get told off for not being Woodstock enough but I liked this new tank from Drift (grabbed it for Lazy Sunday, not sure if it’s in the main store still but one would assume so!) so it was staying, end of story. We hopped on over to Noweeta Grasslands which is a great sim for spring/summery pics and had a fun little shoot.

I’ll add a link to Harper’s post when she’s posted her’s so that you can find her credits there, but here’s mine for now!

I’ve been wearing this new dress from Emery at My Attic for 3 days straight now. I should probably get changed but I am so in love with it. It’s only 95Ls and comes in a variety of colours, so for that price you can easily get an assortment! I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately though so for this picture I just stuck with that.

Also adore this new Nydia hair that Truth released yesterday. I love the contrast of a really light blonde or white with all the black I’m wearing so that’s what I did!

Finally, a couple of posts ago I wrote about old group gifts that you might have and hadn’t taken advantage of yet and it reminded me of this Petal edition of Glam Affair’s Amberly that I hadn’t worn, so I added that too!

Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend,

EDITED TO ADD: I received an IM today to ask whether the butterflies were included on the hair, but nooo that was photoshop work! Sorry for any confusion :)

Sometimes I want to do a blog post coz I’m in the mood to edit a picture, but I’m feeling too lazy to set anything up. I felt like that today and since I just spruced up my living room with some new Loft pieces I figured I’d take a snap of that, then spend some time editing. However, the picture really didn’t need that much and aside from brightening and cropping it, this is pretty much a raw shot. Hope you like!

Oh PS! Love this hair from Exile that is available at My Attic, it’s only 95Ls and really cute, definitely worth a look see!

The Group Gift

ColdLogic Anniversary Photo Contest - Coral Lacey

I decided to kill a few birds with one post today. So please try to bear with me while I ramble on!

First of all ColdLogic are holding a photo competition to celebrate their anniversary. You don’t have to be a blogger to enter this, just take a pretty picture! You can find more information here for the chance to win all their new releases for a year! ColdLogic also updated their subscribo group gift and this is where I decided to combine all the things in this post.

As a blogger and lover of SL fashion almost all my groups in world are taken up by store groups, and I hit subscribos whenever I see one. This means I often get group gifts and while I’m always grateful and think it’s a fab way for stores to reward regular customers, sometimes the item might not be something that I’d wear ordinarily because it doesn’t fit my personal style. Then it becomes a bit of a challenge to style it up into something that I would wear and that’s exactly what I did with this little dress from ColdLogic. I really enjoyed going through my inventory and trying on all my accessories to get a look that I was happy with. If you have some spare time on your hands and want a challenge I really recommend digging out an old group gift you might never have worn and creating something you would wear with it. It’s really very satisfying!

Also I wanted to show you this new release hair from Truth that just oozes sass! The braid detailing on the side is a gorgeous addition and gives the whole style a little something extra.

Anyway that’s my midweek post, take care!

Just a quick post today since I’m short on time, you can tell by how creative I’ve been with my title here!

ANYWAY, I mostly wanted to just show you this pretty new top from The Secret Store! The roses are not just textured but also part of the mesh which gives it a really realistic 3D effect. There’s a few different colours available but today I decided to be pretty in pink and added this cute, relaxed ponytail that Truth released last weekend.

I’m wearing a recent release from Maxi Gossamer as well which is this Forget Me Not Heart necklace. Just in case you didn’t know you can now order Maxi’s jewellery in real life as well! There is more information about it on her blog here and she’s just posted some pictures of the real jewellery after it’s been oxidised and I have to say the results are stunning. I wish all the best to Maxi with this venture and if you love her designs don’t forget to check it out so you can wear them for real!

Valentine Town

Valentine Town I’m back after a week away from SL! I missed quite a bit with the opening of C88 and some other releases so I sat and browsed Flickr for a couple of hours last night and when I came across this fantastic picture by Laverdag I knew I wanted to take a picture there so I went right away to visit. Valentine Town is packed with little stores and the scene is great for taking pictures. It’s just so full of cuteness and candy colours that you’d have to be careful if you’re diabetic. I don’t usually go for so much sweetness and the first time I went and snapped pics with my normal avatar it just didn’t look right at all. I debated what to do and even sent a Flickr mail to Laverdag asking if maybe I could use one of her pictures as a background for a pile up, which she graciously said was ok BUT then I remembered that I had the Dolls Head from Fasionably Dead at the last Arcade event sitting in my inventory and thought I’d give it a go. I found an old Essences skin I had that matched the light tone so perfectly I knew then it was meant to be! So after picking up this new dress from Nylon Outfitters at C88 I dashed back over to Valentine Town and got a shot I was happy with. This outfit isn’t mesh, there are glitch pants, a system skirt as well as a prim attachment and to be honest I’m not sure I’d wear it again as it’s not my typical style, but it’s the kind of quirky outfit that is great if you’re going for a particular look and I didn’t mind getting it just for one picture coz it’s only 88Ls! The hair is an adorable new release from Truth, it comes with and without a bow attachment that has a colour change HUD but because I was being awkward I wore the non bow version and added one from Auxiliary (more gacha) instead. Yet another Arcade item that I hadn’t used was this giant lollipop from Miasnow. This is the kind of picture that makes me glad that I buy things “just in case” lol, it completely validates my shopping habit when I can pull random things out of my inventory that match so well!

Hard To Find

Hard to Find

It’s been a while since I did a lingerie post, but I was looking at my “to blog” folder and figured I’d take a quick snap as I had this lush new hair from Truth to show off as well as the fancy, strappy sandals from LaRoo and there’s no better way to show of hair and shoes by wearing little else. It also gave me a chance to use a new pose from Le Poppycock’s latest release!

Lingerie is one of those items that I still prefer to wear in texture layers than mesh. There hasn’t been much mesh underwear about yet, but I’m not really convinced with the ones I have seen. This vintage style set is available at Deetalez, the bodice and panties are seperate items and you can buy the tango appliers seperately as well if you sport the mesh tatas.

I probably should invest in lingerie more but since it hardly ever gets seen it’s the emptiest folder in my inventory. Especially with mesh and alpha layers, most of the time I forget to put it on even, which isn’t great when the alpha isn’t as long as you’d think it’ll be. Ever had that awkward moment where someone IMs you and immediately starts talking about how naughty you are? Yea…I used to think it was a joke about guys looking up our skirts in SL, turns out it’s not and they do it more than we realise ladies! So my tip of the day, always have a look up your own skirt before you leave the house!

Fanatik Blogger Search

Fanatik Blogger Search - Coral Lacey

Hiiii guys! Hope everyone is doing well this weekend!

I’ve been away in RL for a couple of days and I rushed home and jumped on the PC coz I knew I needed to put a look together and make a pic for the Fanatik blogger search. You can read all the deets on how to enter here. Closing date is tomorrow though so be quick!

Anyway, I put it off right till the last minute since Fanatik regularly appear in one of my favourite monthly events, FaMESHed and I wanted to see what new good things they put out, which were these fab mesh leggings. I probably didn’t need more mesh leggings if I’m honest, I have a lot, BUT…I didn’t have any in camel! It’s always nice to have slightly different variations of things too, so they made their way into my inventory while I got the rest of my outfit together.

I paired the leggings up with a new top and cardigan from Baiastice which are absolutely perfect together. The Aida top is of course just like the Aida dress that was released a few months ago, and the cardigan fits right over the mesh so you don’t have to worry about wearing a bunch of random sizes to try and get your layering even without mesh pieces poking through.

Lelutka put out their latest hair collection while I was away, 3 very vintage and very fabulous styles so I snapped one of those up and decided to wear it in a dark red just to add a bit more colour to the whole look. This Gloria style comes with the hairband included that also has a dainty butterfly attachment, this can be removed with a click or you might choose to recolour it to match your accessories.

Also new is this statement necklace from .Olive. and the chain clutch bag by Lazybones, both of which can be found at the new weekly event SL Fashion Week.

Anyway, that’s me for today. Good luck to everyone who enters the Fanatik search!
