The Next Day and The Next Day

The Next Day and The Next Day

There was a discussion on Plurk a few days ago about whether or not people preferred their favourite brands to participate in regular events, or to put out releases in their main stores. I am definitely a store shopper, mostly I can’t be bothered to trawl through the marketplace, so I do visit my favourite stores fairly often, and I’d like to see more releases in them, but I also still get excited about a few of the regular events and always try to go on the days they open. So basically, in my ideal world, creators would have a clone of themselves so they can participate in all the events all the time, as well as put out regular store releases :D

I did notice though that I tend to blog more things that are sold at events, rather than main store releases. I think this is most likely because when a new round of whatever event opens, I buy a ton of stuff from all different creators and can easily fill my inventory up with things to blog for an entire week or two from just one event.

Anyway, in an effort to blog more store releases and not just event items, I decided to show this cute tank dress from House of Fox that was released a week or so ago at their main location. I’m absolutely in love with the denim version and have worn it almost every day since I bought it. It’s so easy to glam up or style down into a more casual outfit that I think it’s an absolute essential for a virtual wardrobe.

I’ve also added the new hair from Wasabi Pills that was out for C88, I don’t wear many short dos but I haven’t taken this one off! It’s such a classic style and the headband is a great addition. Another favourite of mine from this months Collab are these shoes from Milk Motion that I’m wearing. They’re add ons for the SLink feet and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see more and more of my favourite designers making add ons for these. Although I, of course owned plenty of shoes in world, 9 times out of 10 when I was getting dressed for the day I’d normally have gone barefoot, but not anymore! Now I just need SLink to make the tip toe version of the feet available for add ons too, coz I do love me some high, high heels.

The last bit of new are my vintage style sunglasses from Glam Affair at Collabor88 and the cute pose is one of several from Kirin’s new Florence set out there too.

Hope everyone had a great start to their week!

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!

Flee – Vintage Fair Preview 6

Well since it is now 1am on the 4th of August for me, this is going to be my last Vintage Fair preview before it officially opens! I have so many more amazing items to show you, but it’s hard to find the time, although I’m sure they will come up in the next few days.

I’m wearing a lot of items from the fair here, so let’s start at the top! This cowboy hat is by Monso and is available with a few different textures and colours (four I think it was) but I went for the beige since my hair is usually dark I figured it would contrast better.

Next up is this mesh dress from DDL. I’ve shown a couple of their pieces here and this was a new to me store, so I was delighted to have found them because the styles are just the kind of thing I love. I did have a bit of an issue with the fitting of the dress, on the M that I usually wear the straps were way too high on my shoulders, so I went down to the S which fitted fine, I just needed to make my legs a tad skinnier. If only I could do that in the real world! Also I love this colour, coral, can you tell?

I’m wearing jewellery from Glow Studio that you can find at the fair…my earrings actually have ducks on them. Yes ducks. I posted this link a few weeks ago and now I think I officially am the woman with the turkey earrings, except kind of triumphant because I DID manage to make a cute little ensemble with those duck earrings!

Now on to the boots. These are also by Monso and I got to tell you they are well worth purchasing. They cost 495Ls and come with a texture change HUD. But this is not just any old texture change HUD. On the HUD the boots are broken down in to 4 sections, and each of those sections can be customised with one of 4 colours. So you can make them look completely different every time you wear them! I think this is a great price for so many options and well worth the investment.

I’m also wearing another new mesh release from Truth. As we know I love braids, so there is nothing for me not to like or rave about with this style.

Just a few more hours until those doors (sims) are open, I hope you have your Ls ready and happy shopping this weekend!

Vintage Fair Preview 3 – ColdLogic!

ColdLogic is one of the sponsors at this years Vintage Fair and they are also participating with their new designs. This mesh dress is one of several that they’re releasing at the fair, and like with most ColdLogic designs there is another version to this one, with different textures and colours.

I love everything about this dress, this colour especially. The mesh is not shaped to make my bust look like I have a couple of watermelons stuffed up there, but still gives me a nice round curve on my uh, butt.

Also new out at the fair in this picture is the necklace from DDL and this fun pose from Sparrowtree Studios.

This is kind of a short post (lots more shopping and picture taking to do!) but I also wanted to let you know that the maps and SLURLs for the fair are now up on Chic’s website here, so be sure to check it out and start planning your route!

Vintage Fair 2012: Preview 2

More new stuff from Vintage Fair, yay!

This super cute mesh outfit is from DDL, it comes in 4 soft colours (green as shown, pink, blue and beige) and is only 200Ls! I feel a bit like the quiet little librarian who when she gets home, shakes out her hair and takes off her…to reveal…you know what I mean, we’ve all seen those movies!

I’ve paired it with another new release from ChaChaDee! This time 70s style heels which come in lots of shades and with a really well made reptile or leather texture.

Finally this pose is by Adorkable as part of the GoGo set. I love their poses because they’re always that little bit different from your standard ones and Adorkable have LOTS of great poses released for the fair, I’ll definitely try to show a few more of those.

Hope you like!
