I Wanna Be Your Friday Night

I wanna be your Friday night

So who hasn’t seen these jackets from Foxes at N21 and gone absolutely crazy over them? I think I saw the WIPs and ads all over plurk for at least a week before they were released! At 450L it’s not a cheap buy but the quality of the mesh, textures and options you get, make it well worth that. You can wear it with or without the hood, with or without the fur collar. All the fur is colour changeable on a HUD and let’s not forget that it comes with a T-shirt inner version too, which is also texture change. You have endless options to play with, so it’s really worth the money.

We paired it with this short, jersey dress from Maitreya, which isn’t new but is one of my faves. I confess to wearing it far more often than I probably should. It’s just one of those really easy, classic things to throw on when you don’t have time, or can’t think of anything else to wear.

The shoes both myself and Harper are wearing, are a sneak peak of what will come from JD at Uber next week. The socks that Harper’s wearing are included with the shoes and the shoes are made to fit all manner of mesh feet/bodies.

Hope everyone has a great Friday night and a good weekend, I know I will.

If I Lose Myself Tonight

If I lose myself tonight

Just a quickie post today but I wanted to show you this new Mae skin from Belleza that’s out at the Vintage and Cool Fair. This is currently my new favourite skin from them and I’m sure I’ll take some more pictures using it. Usually I’m into thicker eyebrows but I love the vintage feel from these thin ones, they really suit the structure of the skin. The lips and nose are absolutely perfect and the choice of make ups it comes with are all ones I’d wear regularly. Definitely worth a demo!

Also recent is this statement necklace from LaGyo, which you can find at this month’s round of C88, along with lots of matching items! Finally this amazing colour tattoo from Elska is another new release, that you can pick up at the Body Mod Expo.

Stuck On The Wrong Side Of Heaven

Stuck On The Wrong Side Of Heaven

I really don’t do a lot of topless or nude pics but today I had to make an exception for this new under bust corset from Just Design. It’s out now at We <3 RP, comes with a detachable bag and several texture change options on the HUD for all the different panels (as well as mix and match colour change if you buy the fatpack). I've been holding out to blog it a few days coz it's also made to fit the soon to be released, Belleza mesh body and I wanted to try and use it with that, but alas it wasn't to be this time since the body release was delayed. On top of all this though the corset is marked down to 295L for the duration of the event (normal price 395L)! It's great for RP'ers and mainstreamers alike, with this soft cotton/denim looking texture.

I'm, not wearing a whole lot else I know lol, but you can also pick up this armour necklace from Ane at We <3 RP too. The skin and hair are new releases from Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant at C88. I'm equally in love with both. The Artemis skin I haven't taken off in a month now, so it was great to see some new make ups for that, and I love, love the Europa tone. This hair is just my number 1 right now, especially in Teal, I've been rocking it around the grid for a few days. Finally the earrings are a new release from Yummy at C88 too, I love big, fun pieces like this so I'll get a lot of use from these.

That’s all from me today, gonna actually head back to C88 and do some more shopping I think!

I love it when the 8th falls on a Monday, it gives me a reason to actually look forward to the start of the week since that is of course when C88 opens it’s doors.

This month’s theme, Miami Electric, is a bright, bold one, with lots of 90s throwbacks. Including this high ponytail, complete with texture change scrunchie, from Lelutka. Lamb also released a similar style and I admit that I got a fair bit more excited than a woman my age probably should, over a scrunchie.

One of my favourite items though, was this cage top from Baiastice. I do tend to get dressed up a lot in world so I already know that I’m gonna be pairing this with shorts, skirts and pants till my heart’s content. It does show a lot of skin so if you end up feeling a bit naked (like I did) then something like Ison’s bolero is a great addition.

I decided to wear these runner shorts from Emery, which were released last week at FaMESHed, since they are another of my favourite releases over the past few days. Classic and sexy, with bold prints and bright trims, they go perfectly with items out at C88.

I wanted to keep accessories simple, since the top is the eye catcher on my torso, so I didn’t add any jewellery but I am using this great clutch bag that LaGyo released, as well as a pink bubblegum add on. Both are out today at C88.

Hope everyone has a good start to their week and happy shopping!

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!
