Step into Autumn

Step into Autumn

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!

Is You Big Enough

Is You Big Enough

Just a quickie today but I wanted to share with you how much I looooove this new Emeli hair from Lelutka! It was released this afternoon and I quickly grabbed the fades natural pack and wore it off to go shooting zombies. Not gonna lie, I felt damn sex-ay! It also really reminded me of Rihanna’s hairstyle in her video for Rude Boy, hence the post title (yeah, my grammar is not THAT bad guys)! It’s non rigged mesh so you can edit it if needed and comes with a new short style hairbase (the regular Lelutka hairbases won’t work with it). You can buy the hairbases seperately if you need them, but otherwise you’ll get the colour to match the hair you buy in the pack.

Also I’m wearing the new Cazibe corset from Drift. It’s one of those corsets that reaaaaallllyy cinches you in at the waist, and has some really different leather texturing.

Anyway that’s probably me out for the week now, but looking forward to more shopping and picture taking in a few days :)

Dare You To Let Me Be

Dare You To Let Me Be

Happy Hump Day people! Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday. First of all I was listening to this song by Adele earlier on today which was where the post title came from, I don’t mind admitting I’m a big fan of hers.

Anyway I got so much stuff to talk about in this post so I’ll try to keep each bit brief coz I know I have a tendency to ramble.

I was dressing up quite a lot lately, but as soon as the sun started shining and the seasons changing, I just want to run around the grid barefoot in tanks and shorts all the time. If I only had to buy one tank top this season then this Hangover Tank from Drift would be it. I’ll tell you why. There are 3 options you can buy it in, linen gauze, and a couple of different knitted versions. Each version comes with FIFTEEN different colour options on a very easy to use HUD. Not only that but the ruffles at the bottom of the top are a separate piece so you can wear it with or without and they have their own HUD too, so you can have different colour ruffles to the rest of the top. The combinations are endless and such a bargain for 225Ls.

I’m also wearing the Surfer Rosa hair from Clawtooth that you can find at The Arcade’s Gacha event, which is still going on for a bit. I actually bought this one at a yard sale to make sure I got the colour I wanted, I’m a cheater like that. The belt is the Rockabilly Birds belt by Sweet Leonard and was their item for Lazy Sunday a couple of days, but I’m pretty sure you could still pick it up in their store even though it might be a bit more expensive than the Lazy Sunday price. She also has lots of other matching accessories for it too.

I usually wear eyes that are a lot lighter than the ones in this picture, but since I was doing a different look these seemed to go pretty well. They were the group gift from Ikon for March. Are you a member of Ikon’s group? If not then I recommend it coz you get a free gift at the start of every month and the group is free to join! I love Ikon’s eyes so getting a new set every month is exciting!

I look a lot different in this picture mainly because I finally took the plunge and bought the new Zara skin from Glam Affair. This skin is currently only available exclusively at The Skin Fair on sim 2. Overall it’s really well made, as you’d expect form Glam Affair, and I think it’s a lot different to previous ones they’ve released. There are plenty of different make ups to choose from and some metallic eye shadows which are just amazing, but of course I got a more natural looking version (02) because I knew I’d wear that most. I’m not sure if it will replace Amberly for me, which has been my every day skin since it was released because there are a couple of features that I liked better on Amberly, like the lips and eyebrows. But that’s just personal preference and I’ll probably get used to it the more I wear it. You still get the clean version as well which actually I normally wear more than the ones with make up.

Now I don’t usually wear teeth. I’ve tried. I’ve bought tattoo layers, prim teeth, mesh teeth but they never look right to me because I always feel like too much of my top lip disappears. But today when I was fussing with the skin, adding bits and pieces, tweaking my shape etc, I found the Izzie’s tattoo teeth set I had and they fit this skin perfectly. I like the Izzie’s teeth because it doesn’t show too much. All I want is a hint of teeth, not a great big set of gnashers sticking out. The only thing about them is that I wish they weren’t so gappy. Other than that I think they look good with this skin!

Finally I took this picture at the gorgeous Neva River sim, which Neva Crystall has opened to the public for the next few days. I felt like a bit of a stalker taking a picture outside her house lol, but it’s a really beautiful place and I’ll definitely be returning for more photo ops. Don’t miss your chance to go and have a look round!

SL DisneyBound – Week 1 – Peter Pan

SL DisneyBound Challenge - Peter Pan

There were so many events last week that today when I felt like I wanted to blog something but didn’t want to spend any money I was in a quandry. Sure, my “to blog” folder has a ton of stuff in it, but nothing that inspired me much to put a complete outfit together. I was talking to my ol’ buddy Harper and she reminded me about the new challenge that we’d both already decided we had to do. I wailed a bit that I didn’t have anything green to put a Peter Pan look together and that would mean that I’d have to go out and buy something, but she told me to just type green in my inventory search. So I started to do that, still complaining that I knew for a fact that I didn’t have any pants/shorts/skirts in green…and then, well it turns out that I did.

So this was a bit of a double challenge for me, I put this whole look together with things I already had in my inventory and had forgotten about. The only new item is this Teddy hair from Truth that was released a couple of days ago and I hadn’t blogged yet, but it was pretty damn perfect!

Anyway, this turned out to be a lot of fun and I’ll definitely be taking part again, not sure if I’ll do it weekly but at some point I will!

You can find more information on the DisneyBound challenge here on the Style Minions blog and don’t forget to check out the SL Disneybounding Flickr group for other great pictures and interpretations!

Sometimes I want to do a blog post coz I’m in the mood to edit a picture, but I’m feeling too lazy to set anything up. I felt like that today and since I just spruced up my living room with some new Loft pieces I figured I’d take a snap of that, then spend some time editing. However, the picture really didn’t need that much and aside from brightening and cropping it, this is pretty much a raw shot. Hope you like!

Fanatik Blogger Search

Fanatik Blogger Search - Coral Lacey

Hiiii guys! Hope everyone is doing well this weekend!

I’ve been away in RL for a couple of days and I rushed home and jumped on the PC coz I knew I needed to put a look together and make a pic for the Fanatik blogger search. You can read all the deets on how to enter here. Closing date is tomorrow though so be quick!

Anyway, I put it off right till the last minute since Fanatik regularly appear in one of my favourite monthly events, FaMESHed and I wanted to see what new good things they put out, which were these fab mesh leggings. I probably didn’t need more mesh leggings if I’m honest, I have a lot, BUT…I didn’t have any in camel! It’s always nice to have slightly different variations of things too, so they made their way into my inventory while I got the rest of my outfit together.

I paired the leggings up with a new top and cardigan from Baiastice which are absolutely perfect together. The Aida top is of course just like the Aida dress that was released a few months ago, and the cardigan fits right over the mesh so you don’t have to worry about wearing a bunch of random sizes to try and get your layering even without mesh pieces poking through.

Lelutka put out their latest hair collection while I was away, 3 very vintage and very fabulous styles so I snapped one of those up and decided to wear it in a dark red just to add a bit more colour to the whole look. This Gloria style comes with the hairband included that also has a dainty butterfly attachment, this can be removed with a click or you might choose to recolour it to match your accessories.

Also new is this statement necklace from .Olive. and the chain clutch bag by Lazybones, both of which can be found at the new weekly event SL Fashion Week.

Anyway, that’s me for today. Good luck to everyone who enters the Fanatik search!

Wednesday

Wednesday

By the time I actually post this it will more than likely be just after midnight on Thursday for me, but let’s just pretend it’s still Wednesday, k? K.

I’ve got a few recent releases here that I wanted to share. Most were released over the last couple of weeks and I kept an eye on them till I found the whole outfit that I wanted to put together.

First I’ve got the new military jacket that was released by Chemistry. Lots of colours available and you get a couple of different styles with each. I’m wearing the hip length, collared version but you also get a longer length and both of those without the collar too. I love that Chemistry tends to give these options with their clothes as you feel like you’re getting real value for money. At only 250Ls this is one of the best buys for jackets that I’ve seen lately.

The loose fit denim shorts are a new mesh release from Gizza. They have a lovely little leather belt detail and the shorts are cut so that the pockets hang a little lower than the denim, making them that little bit different from others that are available elsewhere. These will be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe for not only this season, when you can pair them with tights or leggings, but the upcoming warming ones too!

The mesh top I’m wearing under the jacket is the city shirt from Drift. I won’t say that this was easy to layer with the coat, because it wasn’t. I wore the L in the coat and the XS in the top but still in certain poses some of the shirt would poke through on the arms, which was a bit annoying and I confess that I fixed it a bit in photoshop! It’s definitely doable but the fit won’t be perfect if you want to wear that shirt with the jacket – make sure you demo them together before you buy if that’s what you want to do, so that you won’t be disappointed!

I am so in love with this Lavinia hairstyle that Truth released over the weekend. Braids are mah thang yo, and this do is so cute without making me look like I’m trying to impersonate a teen. Really love, love!

TFI Friday!

TFI Friday

I don’t think I’m alone when I say, I love Fridays! This one is no different and as always we got a great selection of cheapies from the Fifty Linden Friday event.

My favourite was this Flash skin from Belleza. There are 3 different make up options to choose from (I’m wearing the teal) all for a mere 50Ls each! I do get excited when we’re treated to skins for discount prices in events, mainly coz I’m pretty tight when it comes to spending out a fortune on fatpacks just to get different make up options, so event skins like Belleza for FLF and Glam Affair’s at Collabor88 are always something I snap up. I did have to change my shape a fair bit to get a good look with this skin, but I don’t mind doing that at all.

Here’s to the weekend!

LaGyo and Glam Affair @ C88

I wanted to do this quick post before I went to bed, since it seems I’m on a roll today. I’m having a lot of fun playing around and learning new things in Photoshop lately so I thought I’d share.

I’m wearing the new Perla sweater from Glam Affair that is available at Collabor88, as well as the new Mescal jewellery from LaGyo that you can pick up there. The sweater is available in several different colours to choose from and the necklace and earrings you can purchase in both gold and silver, which then has a texture change option for the colour of the stones.

The hair I’m wearing is new from Dura. I always recommend Dura to men for hair, and while I’ve seen several cute styles for women here and there, none of them ever looked quite right on me. I was surfing through Flickr earlier today and stumbled on this one, I thought it looked cute so I’d give it a demo and whaddaya know, I fell in love with it! So I quickly purchased my first ever Dura hair. The textures remind me of D!va and like that flyaway messy look so I’m glad I finally managed to find one that suits me. I also tried out the mesh eyeliner from Glam Affair for the first time and I loooooove it!

Yesterday I posted a new profile picture on Flickr, since I’d gotten new eyes and seem to be wearing this Glam Affair Roza skin more and more often, but I didn’t post any credits. Not intentionally but just because I only put it on Flickr and not here and it just didn’t cross my mind. So here’s another close up and all credits will be included this time!

Ni night all, here’s to the upcoming weekend!

Just a quick LOTD before bed time!

In real life I love leopard print. Some people think it’s gaudy and tacky but I think it’s FUN, in the same way I love to see hawaiian shirts on a guy. I blame my parents entirely for this. Granted I wouldn’t have the guts to walk outside in a pair of leopard print leggings, but I do like accessories, maybe a scarf or a bag, and shoes! Oh yes, I do have leopard print shoes. But in SL none of that matters and so I was over the moon when Tutti Fruitti released these leopard print, mesh, skinny jeans for My Attic! There are several different prints available but these were my faves.

I’m also wearing a new mesh style from Truth that I adore, coz it has a braid and we know I can’t get enough of those. I love that it’s kind of a mix of an updo as well, so you could dress it up or down, definitely one that I’ll be wearing a lot!

Anyway, this was just a quickie (it’s the leopard that brings that out in me) hope you like and don’t forget to check out My Attic and Truths latest releases.
