Can You Keep A Secret?

Can You Keep A Secret?

I didn’t really plan to blog this picture, since I actually just took it for a competition, but it shows off the skirt that Baiastice released last week at The Boutique quite nicely so I thought I’d share!

There was a shoe frenzy this weekend, after Maitreya released the Shiki platforms on Friday, Gos followed up with the Gos Boutique range and 4 amazing designs for us ladies. I seriously felt spoilt for choice but from the new Gos shoes, these Sophia peeptoes are definitely my favourite.

I think most people will agree that matching the skin on any mesh body part to your actual skin is a complete pita. Well not with the new Gos shoes! When you wear the HUD a pop up appears asking if you want to go to the website, I pasted that address to my browser where I was automatically shown logged in. On the website there is just about every popular skin designer you can imagine, plus all the tones pre programmed. I simply clicked Glam Affair, America then the sync button on the HUD and the exact match for that skin appeared! One click and bam, instant match! It really doesn’t come any easier than this and I’ll be crossing my fingers and toes that this will be something other creators pick up on!

Another of Maitreya’s new releases on Friday was this little leather skirt and I added the new mesh shirt and cropped sweater from Coco which is really adorable. Oh and new Truth hair! This lovely Laurie style has a ponytail at the back and some loose bangs that frame your face perfectly.

It wasn’t until I put this outfit on that I realised how skinny my avatar has been getting lately. I tend to just change my body shape (body fat and muscle) depending on the outfit I’m wearing which doesn’t bother me at all. But when I had to slim down my legs again so that I could fit into the XS skirt to layer with the M top was when it really hit me. I think I’ve been slimming down and forgetting to ever go back up again so I’m gonna have to write a note to myself about that! Do you ever change your avie shape just for certain outfits? Or would you rather not buy unless the item fits perfectly?

Underneath my Clothes

I know you’ve all seen these boots by Gos 100 times or more over the last couple of days, but I don’t get a chance to be here on the weekends and dammit, I wanted to dress up and take a picture of them too!

This pose I’m using is a super old one from Maitreya, I remember they used it to advertise a pair of boots back in…hmm, 08 maybe? I’m not sure if the ad they made is still up in the store but I remember being really drawn to it and I bought the pose but never used it. So when I saw these boots coming out I knew I had to root around in my inventory for it. So that’s my excuse for being selfish and showing you these boots again anyway.

I’m also wearing the new Ginny skin from Glam Affair which was out at Collabor88 today and I simply adore it. I think this is probably my favourite Glam Affair skin to date. I’m wearing the American tone, the 03 version because I love the classic red lipstick and I knew it would go well with the picture I had in mind.

Also new is this sexy, tousled  updo from Truth! It’s rigged mesh so you won’t be able to move it around, but I find that Truth hairs always fit very well with little to no modification for me, whether they’re mesh or not, they are made to fit a pretty standard head size/shape.

Lastly I’m wearing the new ring from Maxi Gossamer that was part of the leather studded bracelet set that was released at C88 today as well. I love big rings and this pretty is no exception.

So yea, this picture totally looks like an ad, well it was inspired by an old advert anyway and after I’d taken the shot and done all my touch ups in Photoshop, it just looked really plain and some how it ended up morphing in to more of an advert style pic. I’m still practising and playing around with a lot of editing techniques so I guess this is just another for me to work on!

Hope everyone is having a great start to the week, I’m looking forward to blogging lots of awesome items this week!

Cherub

As if Vintage Fair and Collabor88 weren’t enough to make us go broke, there are some fabulous new releases from Mon Tissu and Truth to go with them!

This Soleil hair from Truth was just released and I absolutely adore it. I’m having a bit of an updo phase lately, so this was perfect to add to the collection. It’s not mesh so it’s easy to modify to fit, and the wavy, natural look is just right for that “I don’t need to try, my hair is this fabulous when I wake up” look.

Mon Tissu also blew me away with this gorgeous summer dress. It comes in several different colours and prints so there is something for everyone’s tastes. The flowy cut is so light and breezy and it’s low cut at the sides which adds a casual sexyness to it.

I put it together with the new Cherub jewellery that’s by LaGyo at C88. The necklace, earrings and ring are all available seperately for 88Ls each, and the necklace is scripted to texture change so great to match with any outfit!

Short and sweet post today, it is the weekend after all!

I Forgot

…my pants. On purpose though because I couldn’t think of a better way to show off these shoes and shirt.

I was very excited when I saw that YS&S was offering these Brera shoes in an exclusive colour for TDR because I’ve been umming and ahhing over buying them for a couple of weeks and I already had them in mind to wear with this shirt from Leverocci. So when I got the notice I practically jumped for joy and ran to buy them.

So here’s a simple little picture of me, without my pants, but some fab shoes.

Blue Hues

I’m coming to the end of the goodies that I picked up at C88 and Culture Shock now (I think) and when I started putting this outfit together today I realised that I’ve been buying a lot of blue and white lately, which I’ve decided must be because I’m enjoying a lot of blue summer skies right now.

So this is the Poetic Romper from Hucci, available at C88 and also the League Daydream necklace. I know both of these have been blogged to death over the last couple of weeks, but they’re pretty and were sitting in my “to blog” folder since I bought them. So here they are again. The clutch bag is a previous release from House of Fox at TDR Blue and fits perfectly with my blue hues for this outfit.

I do have something new to show you though! And that’s the new Nikki sandals from Redgrave. They’re 100% mesh and are available at a fantastic price. You can pick a 3 colour set for 390Ls or a multi colour set for 890Ls, which I think is a great buy for mesh shoes. I will say that I had a bit of an issue trying to match my skin tone with the HUD, but that could’ve just been me because I was fussing with windlight a lot as well. In the end I kind of gave up and did have to do a bit of work on the picture to try and match it better, I still don’t think it’s perfect but there you go, I wasn’t in the mood to spend hours on that! But the shoes themselves are very well made and, in my opinion, a bargain price.

Also still loving the Alessandra hair from Truth, I haven’t taken it off for a few days as you can see!

Here’s to the weekend and some more of those blue summer skies!
