I’ll Take The Good Times

I'll Take The Good Times

I’ve been getting so fancy lately, what with all the festive, party season releases, and Collabor88’s Nostalgia theme that started yesterday has only helped to feed that trend. I picked up, 6 or 7 new dresses and a toooon of hair, so you might have to bear with me getting my glam on again for a lil bit.

This dress from House of Fox was one of my favourites, as soon as I saw the ad for it on Flickr, I knew it was gonna be love. I wasn’t wrong. I added a flower, which is actually a hair piece, on my hip where the fabric would rouch, to help co-ordinate my black accessories.

The hair is also a new item from D!va who made up for their absence at last months round by producing 4 different hairstyles and as usual they’re super sweet and wispy. Still one of my favourite hair brands for using in pics.

Other new items from C88, the skin from Glam Affair, also the more modern chain necklace from them as well and finally the clutch from Baiastice.

Oh and yes, I know I’m wearing sunglasses in the snow, thank you for noticing daaaarling!

One Winters Day

One Winters Day

I took a few days off last week, but now I’m back with so much new stuff to show you omgosh!

I’m sure everyone and their mother knows that The Arcade started a new round yesterday, I’m wearing one of the rare Gemma skins and the hair by D!va in this pic. Both of them are very feminine and soft so it was an easy pairing.

I was beyond excited when I went over to FaMESHed yesterday and saw Ikon there, coz it means we can finally get mesh Ikon eyes! I always thought that Ikon eyes had some of the most realistic textures that you could find on the grid and they’ve been my go to brand for a long time. The only issue with regular system eyes is that you have to use a smaller texture on them, which can result in lowering the quality as less pixels etc, and even though this was the case with Ikon’s system eyes, the original quality of them was -that- good, I still thought they were among the best. But with mesh eyes, you can use a texture twice as large so you’re basically getting them in HD with a lot more detail. Anyway, these are the new Ikon Spec eyes that you can find at FaMESHed, they do come with the system layer option as well if you’re not into mesh. I can’t wait to see lots more new sparkly eyes from Ikon in the future.

Finally I’m wearing a beautiful new necklace from Bliensen and Maitai which will be available in a couple of days at the next round of We <3 RP, opens on the 4th Dec!

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!

Used

I think there is a possibility that I have some issues.

Every time I get a lingerie set that I want to take a picture of and blog, I end up with a completely emo setting, usually something with head in hands, surrounded by suitcases or as above, cardboard boxes. Then just to add to the uh, mood, I make it black and white so you can’t even see the underwear very well anyway!

Oh well, I gotta admit I do like it when I make these pictures. The lingerie is pretty, trust me. It’s by Fishy Strawberry and is at TDR now, don’t miss it!

Punked – More From Chic2

As I was editing this picture I couldn’t stop lol-ing to myself, coz I think it’s pretty obvious from any of my previous posts that I’m no kind of rock chick. But it’s Thursday night, I had nothing better to do and you know what they say about idle hands…plus I was feeling particularly uh, mumsy(?) after my last post, so I think I kind of rebelled against myself!

I got this dress from Vanguard at Chic2, it’s not the kind of thing I’d normally wear but I felt like a change and I do like it. It came in a few different colours which were cool, but I have one question. Where were the demo’s? Please anyone correct me if I’m wrong, but I couldn’t find them. Yes I bought this dress without a demo this time, but not having them for mesh clothing is a real turn off to me and does put me off buying things, although as I’ve mentioned before there are a couple of well known stores where I might buy without trying coz I’m 99% certain I’m gonna love it anyway.

I also adore this hair that was released from Truth a few days ago, and figured I’d go crazy and wear pink! I love how I consider wearing pink hair to be “going crazy!” hahaha.

Cool new Dance Off poses from Gliteratti available at Chic2 as well, they were kind of the inspiration for my outfit.

I think this post entertained me more than anyone else, but I hope you liked it!

I Forgot

…my pants. On purpose though because I couldn’t think of a better way to show off these shoes and shirt.

I was very excited when I saw that YS&S was offering these Brera shoes in an exclusive colour for TDR because I’ve been umming and ahhing over buying them for a couple of weeks and I already had them in mind to wear with this shirt from Leverocci. So when I got the notice I practically jumped for joy and ran to buy them.

So here’s a simple little picture of me, without my pants, but some fab shoes.
