Never Meant To Start A War

Never Meant To Start A War

I don’t take personal pictures very often, really, really rarely actually. I usually just point my camera, snap something and edit however I think looks pretty. But today this picture actually does have a bit of a personal meaning behind it and I enjoyed doing it a lot. Maybe I should do more.

Anyway the item I really wanted to show off is this amazing formal dress from Peqe. It’s out at the We <3 RP event at a discounted price in two colours, the gold and black as well as a pale blue and white. There are other colours available at the Peqe main store at full price. I've really loved Peqe's last 2 releases and I'm excited to see more from them.

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!

Does She Speak Eloquently

Does She Speak Eloquently

Happy hump day guys! Just here to show you the new Aria skin from Glam Affair, that will be out on the 1st at The Arcade!

Aida has done a beautiful job as usual with this skin, and with her new seperate options there are so many possibilities. You can see the full gacha key here on her Flickr, but basically there are 12 combination skins available as commons, all with different make up options and then the rares are a clean skin base and lots of extras. If you manage to collect the full set including the rares, there are SO many ways to wear this skin. In this picture I’m wearing one of the combination commons, but added some eyebrows, a nose and under eye shadows from the rares. It’s really a lot of fun to play around with and try out different looks.

Also adore the new hairs from Tram, and while they don’t actually sell a purple hair, I just used a light shade (the dark salmon colour) and tinted it in world.

Ain’t Nothin’ But A Daydream

Ain't Nothin' But A Daydream

I love the combination of blues, greens and whites/creams at this time of year, pretty sure that’s all to do with the way the seasons change and everything starts to look bright, fresh and new. Somehow it spills over into my styling and pictures too. Anyway I’ve got a couple more new goodies from The Fantasy Collective today and I’m gonna start with the main item which is this dress from Peqe.

I started flailing as soon as I put it on, because I adore it so much. Although I’ve cropped this picture, the dress is maxi, full length and you can see the generous split to the thigh. Not only does it have a plunging neckline but it’s a halter neck, so it’s backless too and gives you a sexy showing of side boob, which is always my personal favourite cut on tops and dresses. Since it’s at The Fantasy Collective the obvious way to style it is to go something in that direction (fantasy) but I saw so many gorgeous pics in that style on Flickr already that I decided to go with something more mainstream to show you how versatile it is.

I added the Tableau Vivant Sabahi hair which is out at the same event too, again it’s themed towards fantasy since that’s the whole idea, but it’s still perfect for mainstream looks too. Plus it comes in a version called Sabra too which is more unisex, so there’s something for the mens!

For accessories I added some hand chains from On A Lark which can be picked up at TFC and come with matching feet chains too (both made to fit SLink attachments) as well as the gorgeous Tallulah Drop necklace from Maxi Gossamer. All topped off with some oversized sunnys and the Audrey hat from Tres Blah at Collaborate, which while technically not a beach hat, I still think looks great.

I think I’m done for this week now, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

The Red Lady

The Red Lady

The Fantasy Collective starts a new round tomorrow, which is where you can find this dark themed roses and chain headpiece by Orsini Sun. Fantasy and role play geared events like these are always great to explore and pick up unusual, unique items in that you might not otherwise find in the big, mainstream events. Definitely worth a visit!

Have you picked up your Valentines gift from Glam Affair yet? There’s two skins in the pack, I’m wearing the Valentines 01, which I love, love! The group has a small fee to enter (it was something like 30L when I joined, not sure of the exact cost now but I know it’s not much!) and then you can pick these up for free.

Yes I’m wearing the Tyr hair from Truth again, sue me, I love it! I also added the gorgeous Jewelled Dragon’s Egg necklace from Maxi Gossamer to give the finishing touch to my red lady.

Let’s pretend it’s full on spring already for this picture, k? K. I love this beautiful headpiece from Glam Affair that’s out at Collaborate, it just called for pink and prettiness to me, which is how I ended up with this pic.

I’m wearing the new Sylvia skin from Glam Affair too and I have to say, it’s my absolute new favourite. It’s out now at Collabor88 in the America tone and there’s a new way of buying it. Instead of just purchasing a skin in whatever make up you want, you purchase the base skin and then there are a whole range of optional packs to buy too. The different options like eyebrows, cheeks, lips, noses and eye shadows are all available separately and come on tattoo layers. This gives you a great variety that you can mix and match from, and can create a much more unique look to suit you. The only downside is that we’re of course limited on tattoo layers, thanks to the lab, so you might have to be choosy. For this picture I’m just wearing some of the optional eyebrows and cheeks, since I always wear a freckles and dimples layer and then needed a hair base too.

Also from C88, this gorgeous Alma hair from D!va. Both of the ponytails over my shoulders are optional extras so you can wear one, both or none! It’s a gorgeous hair for close ups, with all the wisps already attached, so no need to fuss in photoshop!

Another recent item is this vintage style necklace from Maxi Gossamer that you can pick up just in time for Valentines Day at this months round of FaMESHed, along with matching earrings.

The first week of the month is always a rush of events opening, so today I’m showing you a couple of new items that came out in the past few days.

First of all from The Mens Dept is the Boston Buddy, cuddle pup from Birdy which is a great prop and pet to carry around the grid. The modelling and texturing is extremely well done, and best of all it doesn’t require feeding! It also comes with a HUD so that you can change the colour of the little sweater that it’s wearing. I’m also wearing the new Metro shoes from JD that you can pick up there too. There’s both a male and female version included, the female ones come with some cute ankle socks attached that have colour change options. They’re a great buy at 250Ls, since both men and women could dress them up or down really easily.

Another new item is this denim shirt from Deadwool which you can pick up at The Chapter Four that opened last week. There are a few different denim shades available, as well as pois (polka dots!) versions. I paired it with some cropped pants for this pic but it looks awesome with a little leather skirt too.

Couple of other new pieces are the cuff from Maxi Gossamer at February’s FaMESHed round, and this Tyr hair from Truth which I think everyone loves coz I’ve seen so many amazing pictures on Flickr with it already. Definitely worth trying out if you’re looking for something different.

Waiting For Spring

Waiting For Spring

Yep. We’re only 2 weeks into January and I totally jumped the gun with this spring themed pic, and you know what? I’m not even sorry! Spring is my absolute favourite season and I’m ready for it to happen like, today.

I wanted to show you guys this new sweater from Deadwool who are participating in C88 as a guest this round. I love the lace detail on the shoulders and the fact that you can wear it with or without the collar. Yep I could’ve worn it with a scarf, some pants and boots to make a more wintery pic, but I love the combination of it paired with shorts and heels. This is a great item that’ll see you through the change of seasons easily.

Also added the new Lamb hair that’s out at C88, and beyond thrilled that they are making regular appearances there now. There can never be enough Lamb hair on the grid in my opinion. Another C88 item are the ritzy beads from Maxi Gossamer. I always buy beaded necklaces whenever I get the chance, even if I don’t need them right there and then, since they’re one of my classic go to accessories, and this knotted version fits in nicely.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week and don’t worry, I’m sure I have a few more wintery posts in me before I decide it’s spring already!

Get It Started

Get It Started

There’s no other way to start this post except with a huge, happy new year and best wishes to everyone!

Now with the holidays out of the way, I’m glad to get back to some sort of normality and routine. Which includes some daily log in time and of course the party season in SL is usually extended for a few days, since a lot of people, were probably too busy racing round in RL to be able to enjoy any time partying with our pixel friends. So if you find yourself invited to a belated new years bash over the next few days, then this gorgeous little number from Baiastice, that was released today at FaMESHed, could be just the ticket!

It’s actually a seperate top and skirt, so you can mix and match them with other colours or items from your inventory which is a great bonus. I love the ruffles on the side of the skirt, which always make me think of the 80s, so I decided to style it up that way with some messy, platinum blonde hair, fishnet tights, beads and some visible bra straps!

Hope everyone has had a great couple of weeks, and here’s to a wonderful 2014.

Just A Whisper On The Wind

Just A Whisper On The Wind

Helloooo! Hope everyone has had a great start to their week, did you spend all your Ls at Shoetopia over the weekend? I know I splurged!

So let me start with my shoes in this outfit. They’re a new pair in a line from Tulip which you can find at Shoetopia and are made to fit the SLink medium feet. I was so excited when Tulip branched out into hair a few months ago and I think I’m even more excited that now they’re creating shoes too. I love that the SLink add ons have given so many other creators a chance to make shoes, the variety out there now is just fantastic. These bootie wedges from Tulip, and the flat roman sandals that she made are two of my fave add ons that you can find at Shoetopia.

I’m wearing another Tulip release that is this halterneck top, there was a version out for Fifty Linden Friday last week, but don’t worry if you didn’t grab it, there’s a whole line of colours available at their main store. The cardigan is from Drift at TDR Fusion and you have a few more days to pick that up before the round changes this coming Friday. It comes in both a plain and striped version which both have 3 different colour textures to choose from via a HUD. The hair is an adorable recent release from D!va that you can pick up at C88.
