Do It Like A Dude

Do It Like A Dude

I’m back with a pretty mainstream LOTD today. Yes I’m wearing a baseball cap, knee pads and platform ankle boots. It works right, right?

I was inspired by this Like A Dude hair from Little Bones that you can grab at Swag Fest and comes with the baseball cap included. Obviously that’s great coz you don’t have to worry about trying to edit hair and hats which as we all remember from our old prim days, usually takes forever and a lot of time ends up as one hot mess.

I really liked this casual pullover this from shirt from ::K:: that comes in both male and female versions and will be out when the next round opens on the 5th. Once I decided I wanted to wear this then the rest of the outfit sort of fell together.

The skirt is from the new and exciting brand Bueno, at Kustom9. Great mesh and detailed texturing plus good price points, for both men and women, means I can’t wait to see more from them. The boots I’m wearing out new from Pure Poison at FaMESHed and will bring a great edgy look to any outfit. The knee pads are rigged mesh and you can find them from Coco at Uber. I wanna wear them a lot just coz I don’t think I’ve ever owned any in SL before!

Hope everyone’s week is going well!

Not Kind When You Betray Me

Not Kind When You Betray Me

Soooo many exciting and amazing events opened, opening and soon to open, yesterday, today and this week! I really feel like I don’t know how I’m going to keep up, but it’s gonna be fun shopping till I drop anyway.

I’m mixing up a bunch of new things from Uber, which kicked off a new round yesterday with it’s Post Apocolyptic theme, and FaMESHed which opened it’s doors today.

The epic train/tank I’m using is from Kalopsia at Uber, by the super talented Isabeau Baragula. It comes with several different texture options as well 3 variations. There’s the full size, animated piece (which I’m using in this pic), a miniature, mounted interior decor item and another large version that’s buried in sand. Really great options and a very cool decoration for anyone to own, I love Kalopsia for always surprising with it’s unique and creative designs.

More from Uber in this pic, the edgy hair do from Exile, and unique layered shorts from Coco. The skin you can also pick up there which is a special version of Artemis from Glam Affair, tons of make ups available so we can all be post apocalyptic beauties.

Finally at Uber are these shoes from JD which, I just cannot describe my love for. They are made to fit the JD MyFeet, SLink feet and the soon to be released Belleza mesh body, so everyone can love on them. If you see me around the grid any time for at least the next month, these are probably what I’ll be wearing. Really no plans to remove at all.

FaMESHed started it’s September round today and you can find this great necklace from Glam Affair, it’s a really versatile piece that you could dress up all fancy, or dress down like, well, like someone who’s just been through the end of the world. The bra top I’m wearing is also from FaMESHed and is part of Haste’s summer hoodie, obviously it can be worn alone which is great for mixing and matching stuff up!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday, I know it’s a holiday for lots of people reading this and hope you’re having a great one! Back to more shopping and photo snapping for me, maybe I’ll try to get into The Arcade even. Maybe.

Soul Of A Lioness

Soul of a Lioness

So as you probably know by now Collabor88 has opened up it’s July round with a safari theme. So many great items this round and in particular all the jewellery and accessories that are on offer.

Since there was so much I decided to grab a couple of friends and show off some looks all together. So a big thanks to the lovely Kallisto Destiny and Oakley Foxtrot who were roped in to pose with me!

There’s a lot of credits so I’m just gonna head right to them, but make sure you go visit C88 with a whole pocketful of Ls to treat yourself with!

On The Road Of Least Resistance

On The Road Of Least Resistance

I decided I wanted to blog a more casual look today since it feels like I’ve mostly been taking either fancy, horror or cute pics lately, when in fact this is how you’d more likely catch me dressed around the grid. Something casual, over sized and comfy looking. More often than not I’m barefoot too, but I am so happy that Coco released these Ugg style boots and I can see myself wearing them a lot over the next couple of months. You can find them in a gacha machine at The Chapter Four, 75Ls per play, so I ended up with a few different colours before I got the chocolate ones I wanted, my dupes were given to friends as a little gift since they’re transfer.

I loved the feel of the sepia windlight for this scene and look that I put together, and I actually built this outfit around the shirt/cardigan combo I’m wearing. This is a new item from Gabriel that you can find at The Mens Dept. It is made for men and not women though, so ladies please make sure you demo before you buy it. There’s no shaping for your tata’s, but you can get away with it pretty easily as an oversized, baggy top. I’m wearing the mens small size which is the smallest it comes in.

Finally I added Drifts new unisex, chunky scarf, which has a great cable knit texture and lots of dark, autumn shades to choose from. Oh and a small note about this bag, it’s from House of Fox and it’s old but honestly it’s been a staple in my SL inventory for a while now. I have one almost identical in RL and it’s pretty much my go to bag for day to day use, so makes sense that I use it a lot in SL too!

Getting Tipsy

Getting Tipsy

It was about time I did another post with my friend Harper, so when the opportunity came up to get a sneaky preview of the new GOL 9th Club that’s opening soon, we jumped at the chance.

GOL 9th  is the newest edition to the GOL clubs and will open officially this Friday, the 24th of May at 10am SLT. The creator and founder, Dakota Neumann has done a great job, with lots of amazing, unique textures setting the scene of a chic nightclub. I’ll definitely be popping by when they open! SLURL is here, you won’t be able to gain access until Friday, but that’s ok, it gives you plenty of time to plan a fabulous outfit!

I’m wearing a cute new hair that’s available from Dura, along with the new bad kitty collar from Maxi Gossamer at Limited Bazar. It’s texture change with several different animal skin prints, I picked it up this morning and they still weren’t sold out so still time to grab it!

I’m wearing the striped pants which are a sleek, recent release from Coco and I added the Lari halterneck from Baiastice that you can find at The Boutique, plenty of colours to choose from with both! Also the Baiastice Jean shoes, I know I’ve blogged them before but I just love love them, so versatile!

Don’t forget to check out Harper’s post here for her pics from our shoot and her credits!

Waiting

Waiting

There was a shoe frenzy this weekend, after Maitreya released the Shiki platforms on Friday, Gos followed up with the Gos Boutique range and 4 amazing designs for us ladies. I seriously felt spoilt for choice but from the new Gos shoes, these Sophia peeptoes are definitely my favourite.

I think most people will agree that matching the skin on any mesh body part to your actual skin is a complete pita. Well not with the new Gos shoes! When you wear the HUD a pop up appears asking if you want to go to the website, I pasted that address to my browser where I was automatically shown logged in. On the website there is just about every popular skin designer you can imagine, plus all the tones pre programmed. I simply clicked Glam Affair, America then the sync button on the HUD and the exact match for that skin appeared! One click and bam, instant match! It really doesn’t come any easier than this and I’ll be crossing my fingers and toes that this will be something other creators pick up on!

Another of Maitreya’s new releases on Friday was this little leather skirt and I added the new mesh shirt and cropped sweater from Coco which is really adorable. Oh and new Truth hair! This lovely Laurie style has a ponytail at the back and some loose bangs that frame your face perfectly.

It wasn’t until I put this outfit on that I realised how skinny my avatar has been getting lately. I tend to just change my body shape (body fat and muscle) depending on the outfit I’m wearing which doesn’t bother me at all. But when I had to slim down my legs again so that I could fit into the XS skirt to layer with the M top was when it really hit me. I think I’ve been slimming down and forgetting to ever go back up again so I’m gonna have to write a note to myself about that! Do you ever change your avie shape just for certain outfits? Or would you rather not buy unless the item fits perfectly?

Baby Bump and Mesh!

Since I posted last week with the baby bump and being unable to wear mesh, I kind of made it my mission to find some that I could wear. I know there are a few maternity mesh outfits on the marketplace but I wanted something that I could wear when I’m without the belly too.

So I was making an attempt to organise my inventory the other day and….woah, what’s this! It’s the ISON Draped Crop Tee that I picked up at Culture Shock and completely forgot all about! (that’s not uncommon for me, sadly). So I threw it on all excited and yay, it fit! The tee hangs perfectly over my bump and this is definitely something that I’d wear normally anyway.

Obviously I have to wear a tank under it because when you stretch your stomach on the avie mesh like that…the stomach muscles that were so nicely shaded by the skin creators? Yea, doesn’t look so good when you’re hefting a size 46 belly around. So again, Jane’s freebie tanks came to the rescue, although I’ve told myself I really, really must find something else to wear instead of them, because seriously, it’s been every day for about 2 weeks.

I haven’t mentioned this hair before either, even though it was released last week I think, but it’s one of Elikatira’s latest and I love it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Elikatira is possibly my favourite mesh hair right now. I love the colour tones she provides, the rigging on the mesh is great and of course the styles are always fresh and yummy. Oh! And I love the Essentials pack she does! Two of each colour, blondes, browns, reds one black and one white. I used to always buy brunette hairs because continuity was important in the role play I did, but now that I’m no longer active there I can switch it up and while I tend to still go for brunette shades the majority of the time, the Essentials pack gives me a chance to pick and choose what colour I want to have that day for a fraction of the cost of a full colour set. The mixed Essentials pack is only 280Ls whereas individual colour packs are 250Ls. That was a smart move because now I’m gonna spend that little bit extra every time, instead of just getting my regular brown and sticking with it. Win win for everyone!

So this post turned out longer than I expected, especially for a Monday. Enjoy your week!
