Lost To The Wind

Lost To The Wind

I only have a couple of new things to show you in this picture, literally just two. Only my hair and socks are new items but honestly I don’t even care because I’m loving this outfit so hard today.

The hair is a long, flowing release from Tableau Vivant that will be available at The Arcade on Saturday. You may have seen some pictures on blogs and Flickr of it already, it comes with adorable soft plushies that can be worn on your head too, but it didn’t quite fit for this picture so I had to leave that at home :(

My other new thing – the socks with suspenders. These are a mesh item that are going to be released tomorrow from JD at TDR Fusion. I believe they will be able to be worn separately as simple bare sock feet, but are also being made to fit with existing Just Design shoes and boots too, as I’m wearing in the pic.

So much going on over the next few days, I’m really excited and having trouble focusing with so much gorgeous new stuff being previewed, but these 2 items just inspired me to put the rest of the outfit together. Writing my wish list for Arcade today and I can’t waaaaait!

Do You Wanna Do It My Way

Do You Wanna Do It My Way

Just a quick post coz it’s Friday and I’m about to go off for the weekend, but I wanted to show you guys this cute new dress from Baiastice that’s out tomorrow for FaMESHed. It’s a great, classic shift style but also comes with the option of a silky undershirt too, which is colour change. It’s a great, staple piece for your inventory!

Also, look at my new skin! It’s a special version of the Mokatana skin from Glam Affair that you can grab today for Fifty Linden Friday, that’s right, 50Ls – don’t miss it!

I’ll Take The Good Times

I'll Take The Good Times

I’ve been getting so fancy lately, what with all the festive, party season releases, and Collabor88′s Nostalgia theme that started yesterday has only helped to feed that trend. I picked up, 6 or 7 new dresses and a toooon of hair, so you might have to bear with me getting my glam on again for a lil bit.

This dress from House of Fox was one of my favourites, as soon as I saw the ad for it on Flickr, I knew it was gonna be love. I wasn’t wrong. I added a flower, which is actually a hair piece, on my hip where the fabric would rouch, to help co-ordinate my black accessories.

The hair is also a new item from D!va who made up for their absence at last months round by producing 4 different hairstyles and as usual they’re super sweet and wispy. Still one of my favourite hair brands for using in pics.

Other new items from C88, the skin from Glam Affair, also the more modern chain necklace from them as well and finally the clutch from Baiastice.

Oh and yes, I know I’m wearing sunglasses in the snow, thank you for noticing daaaarling!

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!

Fall Backwards

Fall Backwards

I’m back from my holiday to RL and I feel like I’ve missed so much! I’ll be catching up for days so I thought I’d start today by showing you some new things from Avenue Fashion Week which kicked off yesterday!

Both of the coats I’m wearing are new releases from NYU for this event, the black one on the left has the white under shirt attached to it, so there’s no need for you to try and fuss with layering mesh, while the poncho trench is a great twist on a classic style.

Both of the hairs I’m wearing were new releases from Truth this weekend, and I have to say I think that my little Coral twins look so utterly adorable in them that I wanna pinch my own pixel cheeks.

Avenue’s Fashion Week is a great event if you like to uncover new designers. There are of course lots of great established brands, but it also features a huge range of less well known creators and a really varied selection of styles. As well as a great shopping opportunity there are lots of fashion shows going on, which can be great fun to attend with your friends. As the name suggests the event is only open for one week, so make sure you check it out!

Shake My Way

Shake My Way

I know I don’t usually take two pictures for my posts, but I had to this time because originally I was just going to blog the hair and skin better and then I just loved the whole outfit and wanted to show that too!

So first the skin is the new Candy from Glam Affair that you can find at The Arcade. I had to tweak my shape a little to fit it but I didn’t mind because I love, love it so much! I’m wearing the 03 version here which is my fave but you can bet I stocked up on all the other make ups too, since they’re only 100Ls each!

The hair is the new Seiko style from Lelutka, I love how they manage to add the wisps and flyaway strands without the big alpha halo around the hair, it makes taking pictures editing them so easy because basically you don’t need to do anything!

Shake My Way

The boots I’m wearing are another new item from Deadwool which you can find at The Mens Dept that opened yesterday! The come in both rigged and non rigged versions, obviously I’m wearing the non rigged so that I could resize to fit better, with a few colour options available and only 270Ls! I think that is such a bargain price for something that you can get a lot of wear from over the coming autumn months.

The last bit of new are the poses, you’ve probably heard of Nati Williams who is a fellow blogger and has the cutest, unique style, well, Nati’s pose store Imeka has reopened now that she’s returned to SL and I couldn’t be happier about it! There are 4 new pose packs available as well as a gift pack, so make sure you check out her new, in world location and pick up some pretty new poses.

Alice (and a low budget makeover)

Alice (and a low budget makeover)

I love this Alice skin from The Skinnery for Arcade, but because it wasn’t my regular skin tone and I suck at trying to make Coral look any different to what she usually does, I sent it on over to a noob alt and had a little fun giving her a low budget update. That’s one of the things I love about Arcade stuff, being able to transfer it to alts, kind of miss the days when I could do that just to keep my inventory low!

Anyway, after I sent her the skin and one of Teefy’s nightdresses I took a trip to TDR Fusion and grabbed the new LOQ hair and earrings from LaGyo to complete the look, both only 70Ls each. The most expensive thing I’m wearing were the eyes from Ikon which are 150Ls, but still this whole look (including the dress which you can’t see) came to only 465Ls!

I have a lot of fun doing low budget makeovers and it’s not that hard what with all the great discount events we’re treated to, I think I might do more in the future, maybe.

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.

Summers End

Summers End

Ok I know it’s not technically the end of summer yet, but I liked the idea of it for this picture, spending the last day of summer at the beach, soaking up every drop of sun before autumn comes.

I’m wearing a few recent releases, nothing brand new but the hair, vest and necklace were all out over the past week or two, from Truth, Pumpkin and LaGyo.

Also a little about the location, it’s built by my dear friend Jac who built the Baja Norte beach sim earlier in the summer and that became hugely popular with bloggers and photographers and people just looking to hang out. Well this is his latest build, Black Basalt Beach which he was commissioned to create and that the owner has opened to the public. Dark, sandy beaches with a rocky cliff backdrop, waterfalls and green woodland areas can all be found here. If you liked Baja then make sure you visit this place! You can find some beautiful pictures on Ziki Questi’s blog here, when she covered it a couple of weeks ago.

Give ‘em the old Razzle Dazzle

Razzle Dazzle

Collabor88′s 2nd anniversary is now open! I can’t tell you how excited I’ve been for this the last few days, seriously on the edge of my  seat with anticipation and I really wasn’t disappointed. There are so many amazing designers and fabulous releases in this round. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna be seeing flapper girls for days all over Flickr and the feeds, but I don’t mind that because it’s all so sparkly, shiny and new!

It’s been a while since Harper and I posted together, but I think our mutual excitement over this round really warranted it, so we threw on a few new pieces and snapped away. And yes, those are old Lelutka hairs we’re wearing, but IN OUR DEFENCE, we took these pics last night before C88 opened so we didn’t have the new hairs, and let me tell you, there are several gorgeous ones out there including a couple form Lamb who I was super excited to see included in this months Collab.

I’m wearing the new dress from Baiastice that’s out today, it’s a gorgeous 20′s inspired piece and the sheer overlay on the front makes it a little different from a lot of things already around and adds that extra bit of something special. The necklace is also a Baiastice release and I love it a lot a lot a lot!

The pose I’m using is from a set of several Burlesque poses that come with a cane prop from Kirin, you can definitely have a lot of fun with these and I expect to see tons of amazing pics produced with them.

Harper is wearing The Secret Stores razzle dazzle offering which is just as cute and amazing, I’ll put a link to the rest of her credits later when she’s caught up! UPDATE: You can find her credits here on her blog Pixel Pantomime.

Hope everyone enjoys shopping today as much as I have, I think I need to go back now for round 2!
