It’s a London Thing

It's a London Thing

Since I dressed up kinda fancy yesterday I decided to do a picture that was more fun and quirky today so came up with this little outfit made with lots of new stuff!

The hair is from LOQ at TDR Fusion, it’s non rigged mesh you can mod it if needed and you get a fatpack for just 70Ls, so lots of colours to choose from! I decided to stick a pencil through it too just coz, well I felt like it.

I love this new t-shirt from Emery that you can find at FaMESHed. It’s longer at the back which does make it somewhat difficult to pair with mesh bottoms although it fitted fine for me with this skirt in most poses. The shoes are also at FaMESHed and were LaRoo’s offering this round. I have to say these are my favourite LaRoo release to date. I love, love shoes with socks and I said not long ago I wished there were more around so these just about made my day. They come in floral as well as plain textures so lots of options to choose from!

Now some bits and pieces that I picked up at The Arcade Gacha! The bag is from Pesca, it’s not animated but that means you can easily edit it to fit whatever pose you want it for. The denim skirt is Tulip’s gacha item with tons and tons of colours available. I’m really into high waisted skirts/shorts/pants lately, so this is a very welcome addition for me! You can also find the vintage style necklace and the cuff I’m wearing, by Nylon Outfitters and Baiastice at The Arcade too.

The London skyline in the background is made by Digs and is also at The Arcade, along with lots of other city skylines, but I have to confess that this one isn’t mine. You may or may not know that in RL I am originally from that area in England with lots of family still in London, so I’ve been desperately looking around the yard sales for one of these. During a shopping trip with a friend this morning I mentioned it to her and she promptly pulled one from her inventory and wore it in the store. However she did let me borrow it for this pic on the proviso that I give it back, which of course I did, with no intentions of just keeping it crossing my mind at all.

Anyway I need to get back to hunting my own out, so that’s me for today!

Don’t Forget!

Don't Forget!

I don’t usually make a point of blogging sales or reminders about events ending, because frankly there are a lot of people who do this better than I can and there are so many events and things now that I find it kinda stressful trying to keep up! I’m much more of a LOTD, blog what I like, when I like kinda gal but I thought it would be remiss of me not to mention these.

First of all don’t forget to visit the Truth hair sale! Colour packs are reduced to 75Ls, fatpacks to 750Ls and some packs which will be retired are reduced even lower! I’ve pictured a few of my favourite recent styles above.

Also FaMESHed closes tomorrow while they set up for a new round that will open on the 1st of May, so if you haven’t been yet or forgot to pick up something before today is your last opportunity! I’m showing the Penny boots from LaRoo here which definitely have an edge to them. They’re available in lots of colours but best of all if you buy the fatpack you get all those colours in a HUD, so you’re not adding tons of extra items to your inventory!

Anyway, this was just a quickie reminder post, enjoy your hump day!

Mixed Up

Mixed Up

No the title of this post is in no way shape or form referring to me, well ok maybe a little, but mainly it’s because I’m wearing a mash up of items from 50 million different events. Well ok, like three.

First of all this cute T shirt from So Many Styles that you can grab at The Dressing Room Fusion. It’s just a classic, staple item for those days when you want to be casual. Also new (ish) are these hi top style sneakers from LaRoo at FaMESHed. They are unisex and come with a HUD to colour change each part (soles, laces, fabric etc) and there are tons of texture options in there for you to choose from.

I’ve also got a couple of new items available at The Arcade Gacha event. The Polyex Sports Watch from Yummy is such a great retro accessory and I was lucky enough to get the silver rare version on my second go! I’m also wearing the fishing bag that was by Sleepy Eddy for the event. It’s meant for guys I know but with an easy little resize it fits perfectly.

This hair from Truth was out a while ago but I hadn’t gotten round to blogging it yet, I just thought it was perfect for this casual, sassy look!

Anyway, it’s C88 eve and I need to go find a place I can stand around while sort my inventory in preparation!

Hard To Find

Hard to Find

It’s been a while since I did a lingerie post, but I was looking at my “to blog” folder and figured I’d take a quick snap as I had this lush new hair from Truth to show off as well as the fancy, strappy sandals from LaRoo and there’s no better way to show of hair and shoes by wearing little else. It also gave me a chance to use a new pose from Le Poppycock’s latest release!

Lingerie is one of those items that I still prefer to wear in texture layers than mesh. There hasn’t been much mesh underwear about yet, but I’m not really convinced with the ones I have seen. This vintage style set is available at Deetalez, the bodice and panties are seperate items and you can buy the tango appliers seperately as well if you sport the mesh tatas.

I probably should invest in lingerie more but since it hardly ever gets seen it’s the emptiest folder in my inventory. Especially with mesh and alpha layers, most of the time I forget to put it on even, which isn’t great when the alpha isn’t as long as you’d think it’ll be. Ever had that awkward moment where someone IMs you and immediately starts talking about how naughty you are? Yea…I used to think it was a joke about guys looking up our skirts in SL, turns out it’s not and they do it more than we realise ladies! So my tip of the day, always have a look up your own skirt before you leave the house!

Soho Boho

Soho Boho

I’ve been dressing up pretty fancy in world lately, so today I decided to go back to more a boho style which I always love and was made pretty easy with a lot of the new releases that came out in the last few days.

Truth released this lovely relaxed, mesh style today that really flows and suited the look perfectly. This outfit kinda reminds of something SJP would’ve worn as Carrie in Sex in the City so I decided to go a bit of a dirty blonde today, instead of my normal brunette.

The shoes are the fab new Sparta pumps from LaRoo. These are the first shoes they’ve released that had the open toe and mesh feet, and I’ve got to say that I found the HUD very easy to match up. You can find a pic of the HUD here on their Flickr. Lots of lovely nail options as well as shoe colours available too.

I am so in love with this skirt from Milk Motion. I wasn’t sure when I first saw it at The Dressing Room Fusion last week, but when I tried the demo on it was an instant must have for me. It’s available at TDR Fusion in 3 different colours (green, black and red) and I think it really is very different from most skirts that are available on the grid right now. I’d love to see more in this style.

The off the shoulder cardigan is another great little number that I picked up from TDR, by Ricelli. I love the freedom that mesh has brought us that the designers can now create pieces like this and they fit so easily without all the prim hassle.

I’m wearing Maxi Gossamer’s latest necklace that is out at C88 and the headband available there from The Sea Hole. The head band is a steal at 28Ls so I think I got one in every colour, coz you never know!

I’ve really got my blogging mojo back now after the holidays and I’m just tres excited for more releases and shopping!

Little Black Skirt

Little Black Skirt
First of all, I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and a happy new year! I’ve been really busy over the holidays but I finally got around to my first post of 2013!

January has always been the worst month of the year for me, it seems like pay day can never come quick enough. After the huge blow out I generally have in December, January is my frugal time. After the first couple of weeks of sales, it’s also when you start to see new collections arriving in stores so you can begin to build up a spring wardrobe.

Now if you’re budget savvy like I try to be, then you’ll want to pick up some staple items. Staple items are pieces that you can mix and match to get completely different looks from, as well as getting your money’s worth and wearing them often. So for this post I decided to show you a staple item I picked up recently and 3 different ways to wear it.

Fanatik has quickly risen up my list of favourite stores with their releases over the past couple of months and this micro mini is no exception. I bought it at the Frost event a couple of weeks ago but only got around to blogging it now, however I think since I did buy it, I’ve barely taken it off. It’s available in several colours and with the variety of ways you can dress it up or down, fatpacking would not be a hard decision to make. It’s pretty simple in it’s style, but I love the quality of Fanatik’s mesh and textures and it also has a cute little zip detail on the back which gives it that extra bit of realism. The length was important to me too, I have some other mini’s that were just a tiny bit too long for what I wanted and the market is also flooded with ones that basically put your ass cheeks on display. I wanted something in between and this skirt was it.

I’m wearing a few other new(ish) items as well, that were released over Christmas and New Year. A couple of recent hair styles by Truth, the one with the scarf also includes a colour change hud so it’s great to match with many outfits. I have a thing for hair with attachments like that so this is an easy favourite.

The leather jacket from Erratic on the left is very nicely made and comes with both open and closed options. It’s not the kind of thing that is easy to layer with other mesh tops but most mesh jackets aren’t, which is why I still grab layer tops now and then.

House of Fox had a sale for a few days and I’m sorry that I didn’t get to blog this before because I am wearing several of their items that I picked up there while they were reduced. If you want information on sales and things make sure you check out Seraphim SL as they almost always have the latest info on what’s going on where. Anyway, House of Fox, yea, lots of good things.

Finally LaRoo released these fab Liberty boots for FaMESHed, that I’m wearing on the left a few days ago. Lots of colours available and they come in 3 different sizes, I usually wear a M in mesh clothes but the S in the boots fits me just fine. These are definitely my favourite of LaRoo’s releases and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Also I just wanted to point out there there was -very- little editing on these pictures compared to some of my others, apart from smoothing out some angular edges so everything I’m wearing should look the same in world, although always make sure to demo!

Hopefully I’ll be back to more of a regular blogging schedule now but I’m still visiting family and using a different PC so I’m not sure how fab my pics will be till I get home in a month or so. Anyway, I’m so looking forward to seeing what great items will be brought to us for the new season!

New from LaRoo!

New from LaRoo!

Last week I blogged about the new mesh footwear store LaRoo that would be opening soon. They were due to open on the 7th but some setbacks saw that date delayed, but now, they’re finally open! You can find LaRoo on the Fresco sim, located opposite FaMESHed. I went over and checked it out and it’s a lovely mesh build, great for taking pictures.

LaRoo have 2 new items out for their opening and my favourites are these Clyde boots. They come in lots of different colours and the studs give them that extra something. They’re non rigged mesh so you can resize as needed. The only thing I’d have liked is if they came with both gold and silver studs, since I pretty much always pick gold over silver, but I can’t have it all so I just wore them in gold instead!

I’m also wearing this new mesh top from The Secret Store at C88. It’s so pretty and well made and the gold accents easily make it a new favourite for me. At only 88Ls I’m definitely gonna be going back for 2nds, and 3rds and ok, maybe I’ll just get all the colours!
