Don’t Wake Me During Summer

Don't Wake Me During Summer

I seem to remember that last year I didn’t take many winter or festive photos, so now I’m making up for it. That’s my excuse anyway. Plus I’m really enjoying all the cool, bright shades – I think it suits the type of photo I usually like to take.

So even though it’s nearly the holidays, Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant seem to be working over time with a slew of new items available at winter themed events. I’m wearing the super pretty and feminine Snowfall hairstyle from Tableau Vivant that you can find at the Frost event, plus their headpiece from the Snow Queen hair that’s out at The Seraphim Social. These fancy eyelashes from Glam Affair can be picked up there too. The skin is also a new Glam Affair release that you can find with 3 different make up options at the Frost event in Tableau Vivants booth.

Finally I’m wearing a new set of bracers and necklace from Enfant Terrible, that you can pick up at We <3 RP. They're a great accessory, perfect for a snow queen!

So much exciting new goodness at C88 this round. I was even up early enough to go as soon as it opened which is the first time in a long time for me, of course the sim crashed after 20 minutes before I could even rezz properly or buy anything, but that’s all part of the fun eh?

Anyway after a couple of more successful trips, I managed to grab a few things. First of all this vest from Ison, I’m so in love with it. I think now I should’ve fatpacked it because I know I’m gonna end up buying at least 2 or 3 more different colours. It’s just a perfect casual add on to any outfit, and is not too hard to fit over other mesh.

I can’t get enough of this Dreadlow hair from Tableau Vivant either. It’s so different to what I’m used to and even though I’ve seen some great pictures of people really rocking other dreads in SL, they never seemed to suit me. I think the hat makes the difference with this one though, which of course comes with a HUD to texture change. If dreads aren’t your thing then there’s a regular hair version too.

One of the main reasons I was so excited about this round was that Maitreya was participating. Like any good SL fashion lover, I’m a huge fan of theirs so to seem them being a part of something like Collab just about made my day. The leggings I’m wearing were one of their releases, as well as an over sized coat which I’m sure will find it’s way onto my blog some time this week.

Finally, my background is just multiple copies of the new Philby TV from Seven Emporium who were making a guest appearance at C88 too. It’s a great vintage decor piece, comes with several different texture screens to choose from, as well as varying levels of noise and if that wasn’t enough there’s a ton of matching items available too. Perfect for creating your cosy, winter, indoor setting.

Collabor88 opened it’s doors today for it’s October round, showcasing items from great designers as usual, all themed around the palette and mood board “Black Magic”.

I don’t think I can adequately describe my love for this asymmetrical leather jacket by Ison. I just think it’s amazing and I know I’m going to wear it lots and lots. There are tons of colours to choose from and each comes with a HUD which is scripted so you can texture change the top beneath it to a ton of colours. This is so easy to pair with skirts, shorts or pants, it’s really a great piece for your inventory.

The hair I’m wearing was a new one Truth released yesterday, and like his last hair I blogged it’s not got as much volume as his usual hairs, so it’s right up my alley, plus I’m loving the mid length hair lately too.

The necklace is a new item from Maxi Gossamer at C88, comes with matching earrings and is scripted to colour change between black, silver and gold so you can match it with any outfit! Finally the futuristic headphones are a great new accessory from Ispachi at The Mens Dept that also are scripted to colour change and come with an awesome matching futuristic music player for you to hold.

That’s all from me today, I need to get back to do some more shopping!

Hihi everyone, I have a few more new things to show you today, all from events again!

So starting at the top is this new hair from Truth that you can pick up at The Seasons Story. I love hair with any kind of add on, hats, hairbands etc, so this is an easy favourite for me. The hat is colour change as you’d expect but also Truth has now moved to a HUD based colour change system for the hair too! This is great news for people who like to try and keep their inventory size in check.

The oversized coat is new from Ison at Collabor88,and as you probably know Ison are one of the few brands that still use the 88L price point regularly, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t make less money by doing that because that feels like such a bargain to me that I’ll buy 2 different colours at the very least, probably more!

Finally the last bit of new are the shoes from JD at The Seasons Story. There are so many options with these that the possibilities are endless, you can choose from the knee high socks, to ankle socks or no socks, with a ton of different sock colours as well as options on the shoes. Well worth checking out!

So that’s me for today, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

PS. I know this picture looks small, I guess I didn’t have it sized very well after the edit, I’ll be honest, I’m hopeless when it comes to things like that! So make sure you click the image through to Flickr to see it properly!

A Little Birdy Told Me….

A Little Birdy Told Me

There are so many fantastic events going on right now, with autumn fashions making a big splash on the grid, so I’m put this simple little look together with a few new pieces.

Birdy is one of those skin brands, like The Skinnery, that I always see pictures of people looking fantastic in on Flickr, but a lot of the time when I demo them and see them on myself my reaction is…oh. Something about my shape just doesn’t really suit them but I went out to demo this Ingrid skin from Birdy that you can find at The Chapter Four (for only 99Ls!!) and I just loved it. It won’t replace my every day Glam Affair skins, but I’ll definitely be pulling it out when I need a change. I used Annan Adored’s Tan Skin windlight setting for the close up because it gives some nice added saturation to the skin that I can play around with in PS if I want to. I visited the Birdy main store to pick up the appliers for SLink hands and feet and decided that the sim was so pretty that I’d take my pictures there too!

A Little Birdy Told Me

Some more new things from Collabor88, this fantastic long line cardigan from House of Fox, I love the slightly square shape to the shoulders on the mesh, which makes it a little bit different. Also new are these boots from Ison @ C88 which, I’m not gonna lie, are just to die for. They’re obviously mesh and at only 188Ls a pair you can easily afford to stock up for autumn and winter!

I’m wearing this new hairstyle from Tulip as well, which is available at The Seasons Story event. This is absolutely my favourite one Mina has made so far, I didn’t even want to edit it with wisps and strands like I normally try to do, because I just loved it the way it was.

Finally both the poses are from a new autumn set that Kirin released for The Seasons Story too!

Take The Hint

Take The Hint

It’s always exciting when one of your favourite designers branches out into making different things than you’d normally expect from them, so I was bouncing when I saw that Mina from Tulip released hairs last week. I love this smoothed bob that she put out, and the ombre colours are just my cuppa tea. I definitely recommend checking out the couple of styles that are already released and I can’t wait to see what else Mina can come up with!

Just quickly about this picture, I’ve been wanting to practice some darker pictures lately and today seemed like a good time and I have to say it’s a lot harder than I really thought, trying to get the right lighting so that you can still see what I’m wearing and making the highlights really subtle etc. I’m not unhappy with how this one came out but I know I still need a lot of practice, it just makes me admire the people who can pull this style off effortlessly that much more.

All That Attitude

All That Attitude

I just have a couple of new things I wanted to show you quickly today with this picture. First of all this casual new tank that you can get from Milk Motion at Summerfest! It’s cut very low at the sides so there’s a healthy dosage of side boob, but I was feeling modest today and decided to wear a huge bra with it too! I love the way the mesh has been made so that it really looks like it’s just hanging from your avatars body though, definitely a must have for this season!

Also the hat I’m wearing is new from Miamai at L’accessoires. It comes with 2 options, with hair or without. I’m wearing the hair that it comes with in this pic and there’s a HUD so you can choose which colour hair you want, and matching hair bases.

Finally I’m using a pose from Kirin’s latest set, these are probably my favourite so far and I can’t tell you how happy I am to see another cute new pose store on the grid!

Stranded

So I know we’re all about The Arcade this weekend, but don’t forget to save some of those Ls because FaMESHed kicked off a new round just yesterday!

This gorgeous Hina maxi dress is from Baiastice for June’s FaMESHed and I tell you, it’s to die for. If you ever wanna model-esque in SL, all you need to do is grab this dress. It has a slim, sleek fit but still looks as though the fabric is just effortlessly draped from your body. The detail of the mesh and the folds around the belt is crafted beautifully. I didn’t even want to try and wear this differently or add tons of accessories because the dress just speaks for itself. There are a few different plain coloured options available as well as some printed versions including this tropical lavender one I’m wearing and a striped zebra print which are probably my favourites.

I’m also wearing the new Charlize hair from Truth which is a great little windswept bob. It’s a lot sleeker than a lot of Truth hairs and I can’t get enough of it!

I can be found for the next couple of days wandering around gacha yardsales (looking for Lulu 07, shameless plug I know lol, pls IM me if you have it and wanna sell it though!) in this outfit, I don’t even care if it’s a little bit fancy because I just love it!

I don’t usually log on weekends but I had some time today and I decided to play with this pic that I’d procrastinated from blogging during the week.

I love this new skirt from Baiastice that was released for The Boutique. It comes in lots of different prints and colours, mostly floral which are fab for spring and also this brown suede effect, as well as a teal version. The suede texture is really detailed and it was so easy to build a look around this skirt.

The shirt and waistcoat are both recent releases from Ison and are easy enough to layer so long as you wear a bigger size waistcoat over the shirt (I’m wearing the M waistcoat and S shirt). The shirt also comes with a colour change HUD so you can get 3 colours for the price of one, which makes it an easy and staple purchase.

I love this hair that LOQ released last week and I’ve been wearing it for days. You can find it at The Dressing Room Fusion, although it is not discounted, but it’s a really relaxed style that is simple to dress up or down.

The picture was taken at a sim that I stumbled upon some pics of on Flickr, it’s really beautiful and I’d definitely recommend visiting, especially if you’re looking for a pretty place to snap some shots!

Bad Girl

I didn’t really intend to blog this outfit, I was wearing it last night while I TP’d around to a few clubs listening to music and the more I looked at myself (which was a lot) the more I felt like a long legged Bond girl or something. So I came to the logical conclusion that I should strap an Uzi to my leg and take a picture.
