Walking On Sunshine

Walking on Sunshine

Hi guys! I’ve been away for a few days so I’m breezing back in with this romantical, floaty pic today!

The maxi dress is a gorgeous new release from Drift at TDR Fusion. There are 3 different prints and colours available but I was really feeling the soft blue. Also this new Candy hair from Truth, I cannot tell you how much I love it, but believe me, it’s a lot!

I have a few new accessories on as well, the bracelet and necklace are available at TDR Fusion as well, by Glow Studio, the pretty daisy bag is one of Gizza’s items at The Arcade and the neckerchief is new from Ilo at The Mens Dept with both male and female versions available.

Finally I’m using another pose from Carolina Sautereau’s store, Kirin, this is from her new Nana pose set, make sure you check it out!

I had a little lol moment to myself earlier today when I was working on this pic, just because it’s such a huge contrast compared to the one I made yesterday. And ok, it’s not my normal style but it’s fun to dress up when something like World Goth Fair hits the grid!

The skin I’m wearing is new Jalwa and can be found at the Goth Fair, along with the eyeshadow layer. It comes in the usual tones but also includes a vamp and goth shade (I’m wearing goth) which are just perfect for that dark look. Also includes hands and feet appliers for the SLink attachments!

The top I’m wearing is new from Baiastice and can be found at The Boutique. It comes in lots of different summery colours as well but of course I’m wearing black for this style. It’s a halter neck with ties at the back and I might have to blog it again at some point to show that off because it’s really very striking. The bangles I’m wearing I picked up at Teefy last week for Fifty Linden Friday, but they’re usually still in store now, just a bit higher in price.

The head piece is something I picked up by Glam Affair at The Dressing Room forever ago, seriously about a year ago, but just hadn’t had a chance to wear yet. I do this a lot, buy things when they’re cheap just in case I need it one day and low and behold, today was that day!

I’m still wearing Ikon’s new Vanity eyes, I absolutely love them! The variety in colours that Ikon provides is easily the best on the grid for me, everything from super realistic to fantasy so you’re never at a loss!

Oh and the hair, it’s an old style from Elikatira which I’ve worn a couple of over the last few weeks and lamented about how sad I was that they were closed, but I recently found out that actually the store is still open with all the hairs at the sale price! I have no idea why or how long that’ll be for but if you missed the sale then now is a great chance to grab those hairs!

Happy Monday peoples!

I had a nice relaxing weekend and a great afternoon catching up with all the new things today, so I got a few to show you!

First Lamb released a couple of new hairs, as usual they’re similar with slight variations, which I love because if one doesn’t suit my face shape the other normally does. But one of my favourite things about Lamb hair is their ombre and roots pack. I love the contrast of the light blondes with the really dark roots, this always works well for me coz I prefer to wear skin with dark eyebrows even when I’m wearing light hair and so the roots are a nice touch, to make me look like even more of a bottle blonde :D

Baiastice had a nice spring/summer release and while this top would look great with shorts on the beach, I decided to match it with the new Villena high waist jeans for more of a rock chick look. The top comes in a few different colours and in either a studs or pinstripe option.

TDR Fusion kicked off a new round on Friday with lots of great, cheap goodies so I’m wearing the new sunglasses I picked up there by Swallow. The fab little owl bracelet I’m wearing is by Erratic and was their FLF item but you can usually still pick these things up in the store after, albeit for a lil bit more dollar. The chunky chains I’m wearing are Glow Studio for C88 and come with matching bracelets too!

Now a bit about the tattoo I’m wearing. As you know it’s been impossible to create single sleeve tats in SL due to the system layer pattern only having one sleeve, so it would always make two identical ones. But with mesh it can be done! I admit I’ve been sceptical about mesh tattoos so far, I bought one once without demoing and I hated it, it didn’t fit at all.

I’m super fussy about any tattoo’s I wear in SL, I never want to wear “heavy” ones, or ones that aren’t feminine enough and this is always a problem if you’re ever trying to buy sleeves. Also I like to have half sleeves since I got my mesh hands, otherwise the tattoo gets faded out with the hands blend layer and it just looks all kinds of wrong. ANYWAY, today I was browsing the marketplace again for tattoos, which I seem to do a lot, when I came across this one by B*Fly. There wasn’t a demo which put me off right away, but it did have a 5 star review so I just thought ok, I’mma do it! Well I wasn’t disappointed. It comes in 5 different sizes, with sleeves for both left and right arm, so you can pick which side you want to wear it. It also has a regular tattoo layer that goes over your shoulder and helps to blend it in. The sizes are -perfect- it fits so snugly against your shape that you wouldn’t even know it was a mesh layer. The only issue I had was that in certain poses when my shoulder was twisted or at a different angle to normal, the mesh kinda disappeared into the top of my shoulder. But it was only a little bit and only in certain poses so definitely not enough to put me off buying more, or being extremely happy with this one.

Anyway, that was much more long winded than I intended to make it so I’ll leave it there for now!

HOF Blogger Search : Coral Lacey : Virtually Vanilla

Sooooo House of Fox have announced that they’re looking for bloggers! Since I’ve been loving so many of their latest releases I thought I’d put a little look together for it.

I wore this top in my last post, where I talked about the little black skirt being a staple item. Well this T-shirt from House of Fox is another. Even though it’s mesh I’ve found it pretty easy to layer under other mesh items, which is great for these cooler months when we want to incorporate jackets and coats into our looks.

The leggings were another of HoF’s latest releases for January’s round of FaMESHed. Obviously they’re mesh and come in several different colours, mostly darks which is perfect for me since I don’t wear a lot of brights.

I added a few pieces that I’ve picked up over the last few weeks and not had a chance to blog yet. So this cute mesh hat from Deco, the necklace and earrings set from Glow Studio. I’m terrible at remembering what events I got things from when it’s frequent rounds like Fifty Linden Friday or The Dressing Room (writes yet another note to self: be more organised) but thankfully most designers tend to put the items out in their main stores after.

If you’re interested in entering HoF’s blogger search you can find all the info to participate here. Good luck to everyone that enters!

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!

What A Weekend

What a Weekend

The last few days have been eventful with new releases, events and hunts. It’s hard to know where to start, so I decided today that I’d pick one of my favourites from each and put together a look.

First of all I’m wearing the new Amberly skin from Glam Affair. There had been some teasers over the last few weeks for this skin but I’ve got to say it was well worth the wait. It’s one of those skins that not only do I love, but I feel like myself in. This is definitely a new favourite for me and easily has become my new every day skin. I particularly love that Glam Affair always includes a clean version now, since I do like a more fresh faced look most of the time and this gives me exactly that.

The hair I’m wearing is new from Tableau Vivant at The Arcade Gacha event that kicked off on Saturday, you can find all the SLURLS and items available on their Tumblr here. I must admit I didn’t expect to like this hair as much as I do and I certainly didn’t expect that it’d make me wanna go blonde. But I do and it did. It’s rigged mesh and comes in both male and female versions as well as a ton of colours which you can try and collect for just 50Ls a play!

FaMESHed also started a new round on Saturday and this daring dress from Fanatik was one of my favourite items. The mesh is shaped to give perfect curves and the spikes add some sass and come with a HUD so you can change them to either gold or silver.

Finally The With Love hunt brought to us by Chic Management started on Friday. You can find all the hints and SLURLS on Chic’s page here. There are tons of awesome items that you can pick up all for 10Ls and this tattoo I’m wearing is the item that’s available at Aitui.

Right now I need to get back to trying to organise my inventory, since this gacha event has caused me one helluva mess! Hope you all have a good week.

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.

Just Peachy

I got a mix of some old and new stuff today!

First this new hair from D!va. It’s a kind of hybrid hair with the bottom section made of mesh while the main part is just like regular hair. I have to admit that the few hairs that have been released that are a mix like that are ones that I like. Because you can get the nice wispy textures to frame your face without having giant alphas around them, which is a pain for taking photos. This hair is super cute and definitely worth demoing!

I’m also wearing the new cardigan that was released by Belgravia a couple of days ago. I loooove cardigans – seriously can’t get enough of them and being able to layer things -even though it’s a nuisance and often impossible to layer mesh on mesh. There are still lots of pretty texture layer items to go with mesh outerwear though, like this top from Tres Blah.

The necklace is from Glow Studio and I think has a couple of days left on offer at TDR, so make sure you snatch it up! I buy a lot of my accessories from events like TDR or C88, even if I don’t have anything in mind for it at the time they’re always a good buy “just in case”.

So that’s my hump day LOTD for you! Hope you like :)

Timeless – September C88

C88 time of the month rolled around already and I picked some of my favourites for this look! As usual there was a lot to choose from and my inventory got that little bit fuller with “Timeless” items, which was the theme for this round.

Fashionably Dead released 6 amazing hairs, and this one the “Timeless Hipster” includes the hat so you don’t have to worry about fitting that. I tend to find that’s a problem with a lot of hats in SL unless they’re included in the hair. I usually end up wearing non mesh hair and editing it to jfkdajcça so the hat will fit, but because this is included there’s no need to worry about that!

You can also find these mesh trousers from The Sea Hole, which I adore, as well as this blazer from House of Fox. Both are available in tons of colours and fit right in with the Timeless theme, styles that will never go out.

I also wanted to mention the top I’m wearing from Kyoot. It’s not anything new but as we know it’s a bit of a problem getting mesh to layer, if you want to wear a jacket or something and Kyoot is one of my favourite places to get system layer clothing to wear under mesh.

Hope everyone’s enjoying their weekend, don’t forget to check out Collabor88, as if you haven’t already!
