Walk On The Wild Side

Walk On The Wild Side

Helllloooo! I got some more new things from Avenue’s Fashion Week to show you today, and I decided to do something a bit brighter since fall has well and truly kicked in where I live and it’s been raining non stop for 2 days.

On the left I’m wearing a new corset top in tiger print from Zanze and on the right is a leopard print dress from Pure Poison. Both you can find at the retail area of Avenue Fashion Week and I’ll put the SLURK below.

I’m wearing a brand new hair from Baiastice too, I’m so glad Sissy decided to make more after the ones she created for hair fair coz I loved them all. I’m also wearing one of Tableau Vivants recent styles that was released for their opening and this is me still playing catch up because even more were released today.

I have a lot of other goodies to show you from Fashion Week so prepare for more to come the next couple of days!

Lucy In The Sky

Lucy In The Sky

Hi guys! I have -very- little time this week to post, basically today and tomorrow and that’s all! So I’ll probably be keeping my pics super quick and simple, just so I can show a few things at least.

Last post I mentioned how many events had just started and this week there’s even more! Plus the much anticipated re opening of Glam Affair with their new releases. So here’s a couple of new pieces.

First, the Lucy skin from Glam Affair. Amazing quality as always with Aida’s skins, a choice of 12 make ups but now there are extra options. Each skin comes with the clean version, 3 nose options and several lip options for you to mix and match with. I love the idea of the different noses and everything, I wish more skin brands would do this, because it lets you customise things a little more. The only downside is that 5 tattoo layers are definitely not enough, we need more Linden Lab!

The shirt is new from Baiastice at The Boutique, with a whole host of colours available, black and white being my favourite because I’m boring like that. The eyes are a new item you can find there too, by Ikon. I thought these ones were super realistic and I love the glass shade I’m wearing now.

Last bit of new is this hair from Truth, he released several new designs over the past couple of weeks, so make sure you check them out!

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!

Rock on Monday

Hiiiiii, hope you’re all having a good start to the week. I’ve got so much new stuff in this pic for you today, I had a mini shopping frenzy! This look is perfect for anyone who wants to prolong their weekend and head out to a club on Monday, not that we need to worry about what day of the week it is in SL :D

So I’ll start at the top and work my way down. This new mesh hair from Truth is a perfect modern style, it’s rigged and comes in all the usual colours as well as the roots options, but that’s not all! Oh no, it’s not! Truth now has started to release fades packs! So now you can get that hot, ombre look with their new releases! You know I tend to keep things kind of natural so I didn’t go for one of the coloured fades in this, but this one is called Toast which is a darker brunette at the ends than the rest and I <3 it!

Next the jewellery that I’m wearing. This mesh rock necklace and knuckleduster is from HandVerk and is available at Limited Bizarre. Let me just remind you that Limited Bizarre is opened every other Friday at 12pm SLT and all the items for sale there are LIMITED. So not only are they discounted prices but there are only 100 copies of each item available and once they’re gone, they’re gone. I know personally I try to make time every week to hop over there quick and see it what is around because I’d hate to see something later and not be able to get it.

So on to my clothes! Both the top and skirt are from Emery at the new round of FaMESHed that started today and just like all the latest Emery releases I snapped them up right away. The top is available in black or grey and the skirt has a few different colours to choose from. I first discovered Emery in a brief break from role play a few years ago, (’07 maybe?) and they quickly became one of my top 3 “earth” stores to shop at. I didn’t buy regular clothes for a long time then but since I came back and Emery started to release mesh they have quickly found their way back into my list faves.

Finally these shoes I’m wearing were released on Friday and I absolutely adore them. They’re from Redgrave and are full mesh, including feet. Like most Redgrave recent show releases you can buy them in a pack for 690Ls which includes 12 colour options. This is a fantastic price for mesh feet but I still wish they had kept their 3 colour option which was 300Ls I think? 690 for 12 colours is fantastic, I can’t and won’t argue with that, in some stores you can pay more than that for one colour but personally I just don’t need 12 colours. The other thing about Redgrave shoes is that I find the feet really hard to match to my skin tone. I usually wear the blending layer that comes with the SLink bare feet which makes it seem a bit smoother but something about the seam around the ankle on the Redgrave shoes just never seems right to me. These couple of issues have actually stopped me from buying a couple of the newer Redgrave releases recently, however I loved the style and design of these sandals so much that I couldn’t resist and decided that my little quibbles would just have to be dealt with.

Oh just to add, this little bar scene I set up with an old Art Deco Bar Set from Lisp that was stashed in my inventory. I checked on the marketplace and it’s still for sale in their 10L section.

Just a snap of me and my buddy Harper, we got each others backs! Mess with her and I will cut a bish! You will feel my WRATH (gotta use caps for that or the full effect doesn’t work) raining down on you like a hell fire!!! I’m like a lioness disguised as a kitten and I will do ANYTHING (caps again) to protect those closest to me!! etc etc.

I’m totally not serious btw.

Plus this Emery dress that I looooove and which came out a couple of weeks ago, but clearly I’ve been slack lately so here it is, better late than never! I’ll update a link for to Harper’s blog for her credits when she posts. *Edit* Here’s the link for Harper’s version and her credits.

Goodbye Summer

I wanted to take an end of summer of shot and with the Mon Tissu competition ending in a couple of days I decided to do both at once, especially since Mon Tissu makes it so easy to put an outfit together!

All the credits can be found on my entry to the comp here and if you haven’t entered but want to, you only have 2 more days left!

Monday Morning

I love cardigans. Give me a couple of new cardigans every week and I’ll be the happiest girl on the planet. So when Milk Motion released this classic cardigan for C88 I of course snapped it up. The texture is a little blurry, I don’t know if that was just me or not, I relogged a bunch of times and tried rebaking and refreshing texture etc but it was still the same. This doesn’t put me off loving it though, a nicely styled mesh cardigan will always make my day and this is another one for me to add to my “go to” list.

Another new C88 release is this necklace from Maxi Gossamer. I’ve got a thing about long necklaces lately, this one comes in 3 lengths and right away I put the long version on, but I love that Maxi usually gives a couple of different options for you.

Also, I’m so into this new mesh release from Truth! The casual, wavy style is just yum on toast as far as I’m concerned and this is something I don’t wanna take off for a while.

Finally, if you like this background in the picture then you have to check out the Four Walls hunt! You can find more info on their blog here including all the SLURLs and hints to the stores, but basically it’s a hunt around a bunch of furniture stores and each item costs 10Ls. There’s a bunch of great items on this hunt and this picture was taken in one of my favourites which was the hunt gift from L&K Prefabs. The hunt ends on the 15th of September so only a few more days to get out and grab these items!

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!

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Contest

So last week Mon Tissu announced that they were going to hold a competition to find a new blogger. I’m not gonna lie, it kind of felt like I died a little bit when I saw their announcement and my reaction was OMG! Or more accurately, OMGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!

I don’t really enter competitions in general, not just in SL but in my real life too. I’m sure this everything to do with lack of belief in my abilities, and fear of failure etc etc, I don’t need to see a shrink to figure that out. But this opportunity was more than just a competition, it was a challenge as well. Putting a look together that I loved with Mon Tissu pieces and making a good picture was a challenge and I decided that as long as I was proud of whatever I came up with in the end, that was what mattered. Which is why I’m sharing it here as well!

If you’ve not heard about the Mon Tissu contest you can find information on it here and all my credits in this picture can be found on my entry on Flick here.

Hope you like it and good luck to all who enter!

Korundi Mesh Hands

A few days ago I gave a sneak peak on my post of the mesh hands that would be available soon from Korundi, and now they are here! Shansa released these on Friday and they are available on the marketplace at her store here, along with demos.

Real life made me a couple of days late in blogging these and so I won’t go into the entire HUD description because the lovely Harper did a good job of that over at Pixel Pantomime. The HUD is preprogrammed with several skin tones and Miss Shansa did a great job with these because I was fortunate enough that one of them matched perfectly to my skin tone (I’m wearing the Belleza Shyla skin in pale) and of course there are a complete set of instructions on how to use the HUD in the pack. There are 20 different nail options in the HUD, including both french manicures and plain varnish and the hands also come with a tintable glove layer that helps to cover any seams.

The hands should fit any size as they are rigged, so they are rescaled in proportion to the hand size on your shape, however you might need to adjust the fat slider to make sure they fit your arm correctly, but this wasn’t a problem for me.

Since the above picture was obviously edited, I’m including a raw shot here, so that you can see I didn’t use any Photoshop wizardry (hah, jokes I know, as if I’m even capable of it) to make them blend better. I love that I didn’t have to spend hours trying to liquify my fingers to somewhat resemble actual fingers, which is always something that’s been a complete pain for me. This is the same picture as above, just pre edit and the windlight I used was Juicybomb.com Gogo Hearts SL that you can find over at the Juicy blog here.

I also want to mention that Shansa has offered a promo that the first 20 people to buy and rate these hands on the marketplace, will receive a limited edition jewellery set, which includes a set of mesh bracelets and 4 mesh rings, one of which I’m wearing here! So don’t miss out!

Now just one final thing, and I really hate that I have to point this out, especially as these hands have only been on the market for 2 days, but copybotting is a problem in SL as we know. So I want to say that these hands are 100% an original creation from Shansa Resident. Anyone who is NOT Shansa and claims to have created them or offers to sell you a pair “exclusively” for an outrageous (or even free) amount of Ls is nothing but a scammer, and it would be greatly appreciated if you could report any incidences of such to Shansa herself.

I don’t quite know how I ended up with this Barbie look today, I wanted blonde hair since I was working with a black background and this new hair from Truth was perfect so the Barbie Coral look was born.

Hope you’ve all enjoyed your weekend and don’t forget to check out these hands, they’re amazing!
