Down South In New Orleans

Down South In New Orleans

The Fantasy Collective started a new round a few days ago, featuring a New Orleans theme. It’s a great dress up theme and plenty of dark, indulgent items. I’m wearing this hat and hair from Tableau Vivant and lounging around on the set from Kalopsia that you can pick up there. I love the trumpet wall piece and the piano bar is a great unique, decor piece for any room.

I’m also wearing the Oakley shoes from Just Design that were out at Uber for their first round which started on the 31st of July, you have approx 1-2 days to go grab these still if you don’t have them already! I seriously have barely taken them off for the past month and they’ve become a firm favourite for me.

Make sure you visit before it’s too late!

And So You’re Back

And So You're Back

You may or may not have noticed my absence over the past 6 weeks or so. I had an extended vacation to RL, which was great, but I’m super glad to be back and getting in a routine again.

I have a lot of things to catch up on but I sort of decided that I’d just go ahead and show you some coming soon stuff first!

This Emily skin from Belleza is going to be out in a few days for Arcade. There are 3 rares and 12 regular skins available, varying tones and make ups. I can tell you that I did not edit the shape of my lips at all in Photoshop, they just look this amazing in world thanks to Shyla’s handy work.

I’m wearing a new hair from Little Bones which is going to be out on the 30th at Swag Fest. There are going to be 5 new releases from Little Bones at this event but this one is one of my faves. A ton of options are included, different sizes as well as the option to change the colour on each half of your hair. I can’t wait to play around with it!

The fancy septum piercing is from LaGyo at August’s round of C88 and you still have a week or so to go grab it!

I hope everyone’s had a great summer, please excuse me if this is all a bit rusty but I’ll be back in the swing of things soon! Don’t forget to click through to Flickr to see the bigger pic ♥

You Think I’m Pretty, Without Any Makeup On

You Think I'm Pretty, Without Any Makeup On

With so much going on this week, I’ve got yet another LOTD post for you. This time I’m wearing a mix of releases from The Seasons Story, which opened today and a couple more Collaborate pieces.

This adorable dress is from Pixicat at The Seasons Story, out today. I cannot tell you enough how impressed I am with this brand. They’re still relatively new and the collection of items is small – yet growing, but each and every item they’ve put out has been different and unique compared to anything else on the grid. On top of that the quality of mesh and texturing is second to none. If you’re looking for something that’s not “just another dress” then make sure you visit Pixicat to snatch this up, both patterns and solid colours are available.

I’m wearing a new hair style from Little Bones that’s out at The Secret Affair in a few days, and I don’t think it’s possible to describe how loud my inner squeal was when I saw the pearl headband that’s attached to the curly tresses. I tried to convince a friend a while back that we needed a pearl headband in SL, I have a couple in RL which get a lot of use, but we decided it would be better if it came attached to a hair. Nova must’ve read my mind coz that’s exactly what she’s released, even with a long ribbon that trails over your back. There’s not enough curly hair in SL in my opinion, so this is a welcome addition.

I paired both of these with the amazing safari necklace from Ison, out at C88 and the Lara sandals from Pure Poison that you can pick up there too. Pure Poison has released a pretty big line of SLink compatible sandals this season, with the Lara being one of three great new releases she launched at Collab. To finish the look off I added the fringed bag from Zenith, also at C88.

This week is an expensive one for most of us virtual fashionistas, what with 2 big events opening and Hair Fair right around the corner, I hope you saved your pennies! A quick reminder about Hair Fair, you can join the Hair Fair demo group in world, where creators will send all demos, allowing you to try them on in the comfort of a lag free environment at home, before you go to get your shop on. Be sure to join!

So as you probably know by now Collabor88 has opened up it’s July round with a safari theme. So many great items this round and in particular all the jewellery and accessories that are on offer.

Since there was so much I decided to grab a couple of friends and show off some looks all together. So a big thanks to the lovely Kallisto Destiny and Oakley Foxtrot who were roped in to pose with me!

There’s a lot of credits so I’m just gonna head right to them, but make sure you go visit C88 with a whole pocketful of Ls to treat yourself with!

She’s Like A Samba

She's Like A Samba

The lovely LouLou Teichmann asked me to hop in a picture with her a couple of days, which of course I did very gladly! She was kind enough to let me snap this shot on the beautiful set she had created using furniture from 8F8.

Summerfest closes in a couple of days so now’s the time to grab over and pick up any pieces you still wanted, like this monokini from Baiastice or the oh so summery Soleil hair, with hat, from Tableau Vivant. I love the style of this swimsuit, it’s the first one of it’s kind I’ve really seen on the grid so far, and because it’s different from a standard 2 piece you are guaranteed to stand out on the beach. I’ve mentioned before that I’m a lover of hairs with hats and accessories already attached, the Soleil is no different. It comes with a HUD so you can change colours of the hat, band and flower that are attached, so it’s easy to match with any outfit.

The statement necklace that LouLou is wearing is a new piece from LaGyo at C88. I love the selection from them this round and I’ve already got another picture I’m prepping with them too. Big, bold jewellery is always a win for me!

We’re also both wearing the new Kallisto skin from Glam Affair that is out at C88 in both Asia and a new Exotic tone. I’ve been wearing the Coral skin every day since it was released a couple of months ago, and of course I don’t wanna change it buuuuut….I love my face in Kallisto. The lips are so damn juicy I could kiss my own pixels. Hopefully I’ll find the time to squeeze in a close up to show you guys better, but believe me it’s well worth going and trying on.

So don’t forget to pay a visit to Summerfest, and C88 if you can get in, and click here to see LouLou’s version of the pic!

Meeting Summer

Alright yes I’m wearing the same shorts and sunglasses as I was in my last picture, but you know what, I don’t even care coz I love them so. I’ve been wandering the grid in them for days so they just stayed on!

Mostly I wanted to share with you the Summer II skin from Glam Affair, which you can pick up at Collabor88 for a reduced price. Lots of summery make up options and 3 glowing skin tones to chose from, she’s a must this season if you’re gonna get your beach on.

I adore this beach tousled hair from Milk too, you can find it at The Chapter Four in the 2 for 1 section, along with a cute pig tail style. Last bit of new is this pose from Bauhaus Movement, which you can grab at TLC’s Poser Pavilion.

So I took this picture last week with my friends Kalli and LouLou, it’s always great to work with these girls and they’re both such big inspirations to me. Kalli has already posted her version of this pic and I think LouLou will be soon too, so click on over to their Flickrs up there and check them out!

We styled a big mix up of stuff that’s available at Collabor88 which opened last week. The theme was “To The Lighthouse” but instead of going for a traditional, nautical theme, we went a little more urban pirate.

I love the tiny daisy dukes from Baiastice, there are bright colours as well as denims to grab so they’re perfect for summer. The tie dyed tanks from Maitreya that you can also pick up from C88 were an easy match. Slightly longer tops and short shorts are always a great combo.

LaGyo released 2 great sets of accessories for this round, for pirates and sailors. Obviously we went for the pirate look with the black hats and co-ordinating necklaces. Also check out Yummy’s bargain Aviators, they’re a must have.

Make sure you pay C88 a visit to stock up for summer if you haven’t already!
