Friday

You know what that means! Lots of goodies for 50Ls! I picked up this dress from the FLF round today at House of Fox. It’s partial mesh, so the top is in a system layer and the skirt is mesh so that means layers people! I think I’d actually like to see more of this during autumn and winter because as you know it’s really hard to layer with mesh and I’d love to see some nice dresses that you could wear with cardigans or jackets, like this one.

Also new is this Doce hat from Guardian’s (on the marketplace) which is every bit as sweet as it’s name. It’s mesh but not rigged so you can resize it, which is always needed for hats. It was hard to get hats to fit over non mesh hair and I used to copy the hair, put the hat on and then basically rip the hair to pieces editing it, so that I didn’t have parts poking out here there and everywhere. Obviously you can’t do this with rigged mesh hair, so my tip is to look out for some styles that are kind of “flat”. I don’t mean crap, I mean where the hair around the head is not loaded with volume. If it’s relatively sleek then it’s a piece of cake to wear a hat with, this Rashida hair from Truth is exactly what I mean so the  hat fits really well with it.

Yes I’m wearing the G Field leggings again, can’t help it, I love them! They’re so cute and go perfectly under skirts and dresses.

So that’s for me the week, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Fancy

When I logged in today I had a few places to visit on my shopping spree and I absolutely fell in love with this dress from Bilo at Zodiac, the shading and textures are so realistic. So I decided to get my fancy on!

I paired it with the lace leggings from G Field that are part of their halloween sale, as well as their black strap shoes. The G Field sale is on for a few more days and because it’s for halloween all their black and orange items have 50% off! It’s fair to say that I won’t need to buy any black shoes for a while after my trip there.

Also new is this lush, wavy do from Truth and the flower hair accessory from PiDiddle at My Attic. So many great new releases the last few days it’s hard to keep up, so I better get back to shopping!

Stroll Through Autumn

There were some great new releases over the last few days so I thought I’d put some of them together for my autumn look today.

This mesh sweater from The Secret Store is just about perfect. It comes in a couple of different plain colours or with a pattern as well. I decided to go for plain so that I could mix and match it easier and I think I’m gonna get a lot of wear out of this top this season. It’s an item that you can easily style different, bare legs and boots or leggings or jeans, so many different options. I decided to put it together with the G Field floral leggings/tights because I’ve been admiring them for a while.

I’ve also got on these new mesh boots from Glam Affair. Again this is an item that I’ll wear a lot and they can easily be dressed up or down and, they’re unisex! I can’t wait to see what styles some of the guys can come up with wearing these.

I’ve also got a few accessories on from The Arcade Gacha event and this only has a couple more weeks to run so make sure you get over there and grab them before it’s too late!

I took this picture at Izzie’s mainstore which is all done up for autumn and perfect if you want to capture a shot filled with those warm orange and yellow hues.

Hope you all have a good weekend, I’ll see you on (C88) Monday!

Cubed

Just a quick Saturday post!

Keeping along the “Shindig” theme from C88 I grabbed this Cubed prop from Gliteratti, threw on the new Mila bodysuit from Kyoot at C88, as well as the fab new Babette mesh hair from Clawtooth and snapped away.

I did feel a bit claustrophobic though.

Shopping Overload – Culture Shock and C88

Well wow. I feel exhausted after my not-so-little shopping excursion this morning! I think I loaded up my inventory with enough items to blog about for the next month!

I’m sure you’re all aware that Culture Shock opened this weekend. It’s a charity event raising money for Médecins Sans Frontières and this is their second year. For more information and SLurls you can visit the Chic Management site, who are the hosts of the event. Since the location was jam packed on the weekend, it was a bit of a lag festival for me to try and get round, I thought I’d put it off until today…completely forgetting of course that today was the opening of May’s C88. So first thing this morning it was a quick dash to C88 and then off for a couple of hours at Culture Shock.

I have to say I am completely impressed with Culture Shock. It’s a nice, simple layout, not too crowded and really easy to keep track of what you have and haven’t already seen. Plenty of well known and unheard of designers with a lot of promise, lots of fabulous mesh and some lovely free gifts.

C88 was also outstanding this month, but then it usually is and I love the daydream theme they have! I’m not even kidding when I say that I picked up enough items from these two places to blog about for a month, so over the next couple of weeks at least, expect to see bits and pieces popping up!

As for this picture…well frankly I was just so worn out from shopping and demoing that it was a case of anything goes!

Adorable mesh frill shorts from G Field at Culture Shock, amazing mesh hair from Clawtooth at C88 and the bracelet I’m wearing is part of a set from Donna Flora and is in the 70% off sale she is having on some items which will soon be retired, so go get them while you can!

If you haven’t already, go check these places out and make sure you bring your purse, coz you’re gonna need it!
