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!

PS – I just realised I used this exact pose a week ago! sigh I knew it looked familiar, that’ll teach me to try and take time off! I also think it’s a sign I need to arrange my animations folder…

Letting It Go

Letting It Go

Hiiii people, just a quickie post today before I vanish for the weekend, but I wanted to show you a couple of new things.

First this top from Tulip which you can grab today for Fifty Linden Friday, it’s so soft and floaty and perfect for the light spring season. I’m also wearing another new release from Drift which are these capris. I really like that Drift makes regular releases rather than waiting a month or 2 before releasing a small collection. Don’t get me wrong I like that too but yanno, I’m impatient and I like to have stuff right this minute. Also before you think I PS’d the heck out of the pants, I didn’t. They are already heavily shaded, which is great for taking pics because it saves a lot of edit time. Just like Kalli’s recent releases they come with a colour change HUD, so lots of options for a bargain price.

I got this belt a few days ago at Le Poppycock’s 50L spring sale, they have a few belts there that come with 4 different coloured straps for each buckle. Make sure you check out their sale as they have lots of cute little bits and pieces which are great for adding to outfits.

I gotta say too, this hat with the hair is obviously a release from Maitreya last year but I love it so much, I really hope we start to see more similar items from other hair creators as the warmer seasons kick in, there just aren’t enough of these on the grid imo!

That’s me anyway, have a nice weekend :)

Silent Questions

I really suck at picking names for my posts and I can’t take the credit for this one, coz it was the name of the pose that I used. It’s from Le Poppycock and I can’t get enough of their poses recently. It’s a small store but well worth checking out, the poses have a lot of character in them.

Fridays are always manic for me and so this is just a quick LOTD with some items I picked up in the Black Friday sales as well as at other events or sales recently.

The bag and boots are both at L’accessoires Black Friday sale by Handverk and Lassitude & Ennui respectively. I’m in love this bag already and think I need to go back and get it in a couple more colours since it’s only 100Ls!

The hat and hair combo came from LaViere for this weeks FLF, make sure you grab it before the day is out!

Friday

You know what that means! Lots of goodies for 50Ls! I picked up this dress from the FLF round today at House of Fox. It’s partial mesh, so the top is in a system layer and the skirt is mesh so that means layers people! I think I’d actually like to see more of this during autumn and winter because as you know it’s really hard to layer with mesh and I’d love to see some nice dresses that you could wear with cardigans or jackets, like this one.

Also new is this Doce hat from Guardian’s (on the marketplace) which is every bit as sweet as it’s name. It’s mesh but not rigged so you can resize it, which is always needed for hats. It was hard to get hats to fit over non mesh hair and I used to copy the hair, put the hat on and then basically rip the hair to pieces editing it, so that I didn’t have parts poking out here there and everywhere. Obviously you can’t do this with rigged mesh hair, so my tip is to look out for some styles that are kind of “flat”. I don’t mean crap, I mean where the hair around the head is not loaded with volume. If it’s relatively sleek then it’s a piece of cake to wear a hat with, this Rashida hair from Truth is exactly what I mean so the  hat fits really well with it.

Yes I’m wearing the G Field leggings again, can’t help it, I love them! They’re so cute and go perfectly under skirts and dresses.

So that’s for me the week, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

TGIF!

I wish I had more time on a Friday and over the weekends to blog because as well as FLF there’s usually a lot of great releases too. But alas, I don’t. For now. So here’s a super quick snap just to show off a couple of my favourites from this weeks FLF.

Technically the plates aren’t part of the weekly event but North West is having a closing sale (cry!) and everything in their store is reduced to 50Ls, so make sure you check them out and snatch up some bargains while you still can!

FLF Goodies and a Zebra

Just a quick snap to show you a couple of new goodies! First of all my favourites from this weeks FLF, these cute mesh glasses from Ison and this cropped tank from Tulip! Both of these stores are quickly becoming firm favourites for me and it always gets me excited when I see them on the FLF list, I can’t wait to see more new items from them both.

Now on to my zebra. I’ve written recently about Korundi, which is a new mesh jewellery store by Shansa Resident. During a conversation with her yesterday, I mentioned how there were a lot of panda and owl jewellery pendants etc around in SL, but no zebras! I showed her a picture of a ring with a zebra head on it that I have in real life (yes, I have a thing for -fun- jewellery, it’s my mother’s fault) and said I’d love to see something similar in SL. Well a mere 3 hours later, a zebra head ring was dropped in to my inventory and I let out a big squee! So today Shansa made a full set, the zebra ring, this necklace that I’m wearing and some matching earrings, all mesh and only 149Ls for the set! You can find Korundi jewellery on the marketplace here, lots of new things are being added almost daily so keep checking back!

Autumn is Coming – LOTD

As the end of summer is approaching Maitreya have made their “Summer Part 2″ release. These items are perfect for that change of season.

The tunic is a must have for when the evening breeze turns a bit cooler, and I just know that I’m going to wear these boots to death. Being a massive “flats” fan and more of a casual girl they’re pretty much an essential for me.

I’m also wearing some new mesh bangles by Korundi (I told you she was working hard to put out new items every day or two!). When Shansa first told me she was going to start making mesh jewellery I practically begged her for bangles and bracelets as I probably have the hardest time finding ones that I like over any other accessory. I have a couple of pairs that aren’t even mesh, but that I wear all the time, so I was especially happy when she released these earlier on today.

If you haven’t been to Maitreya yet make sure you do, and check out Korundi’s new bits on the marketplace!
