Rebel Girls

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!

Sooo much new stuff on the grid the past couple of days, and a whole lot more of it to come with C88 due to open on the 8th! I feel absolutely spoilt for choice about what to show you guys, but let me start off with a few bits here!

I love this outfit that I put together, it’s perfect casual fashion that you could wear on the beach with a pair of flip flops, then just change into a pair of heels, add some accessories and you’re good to go for a night out.

Can’t get enough of this hair from Little Bones, who are fast becoming one of my favourite brands. I love the root and ombre options they give, as well as the modern styles and a ton of messy ones too which will always be my favourite. This West Coast do is available at the latest round of The Chapter Four.

The top I’m wearing is also out at The Chapter Four by Deadwool. There’s a few different patterns and prints available and of course any kind of t shirt is a staple inventory item. The cut and crop on this one makes it just a little different from a lot of others out there already.

The resort pants are a new release that came out yesterday at The Mens Dept by ::K:: there are a male and female version available as well as a variety of bright, bold colours. I went for the simple black and white coz that meant I could pretty much mix and match them with whatever other colours I wanted. Also The Mens Dept has a new location, be sure to update your LMs!

The boots are obviously the most recent release from Maitreya, while the necklace and clutch bag are from LaGyo at Aprils round of C88, I believe today is the last day to grab those before the round changes, although don’t worry if you miss out, coz I’m sure they’ll be for sale in the main store after!

I took this picture at a new sim, Santaurio, by Jac Mornington, who created the popular Baja Norte beach sim last year. Santaurio is only open to members, and to join the group costs 300L. Group members get rez rights and I definitely think it’s well worth the small fee if you’re a photographer or blogger, coz being able to rez your own stuff can make a huge difference to any picture.

So much exciting new goodness at C88 this round. I was even up early enough to go as soon as it opened which is the first time in a long time for me, of course the sim crashed after 20 minutes before I could even rezz properly or buy anything, but that’s all part of the fun eh?

Anyway after a couple of more successful trips, I managed to grab a few things. First of all this vest from Ison, I’m so in love with it. I think now I should’ve fatpacked it because I know I’m gonna end up buying at least 2 or 3 more different colours. It’s just a perfect casual add on to any outfit, and is not too hard to fit over other mesh.

I can’t get enough of this Dreadlow hair from Tableau Vivant either. It’s so different to what I’m used to and even though I’ve seen some great pictures of people really rocking other dreads in SL, they never seemed to suit me. I think the hat makes the difference with this one though, which of course comes with a HUD to texture change. If dreads aren’t your thing then there’s a regular hair version too.

One of the main reasons I was so excited about this round was that Maitreya was participating. Like any good SL fashion lover, I’m a huge fan of theirs so to seem them being a part of something like Collab just about made my day. The leggings I’m wearing were one of their releases, as well as an over sized coat which I’m sure will find it’s way onto my blog some time this week.

Finally, my background is just multiple copies of the new Philby TV from Seven Emporium who were making a guest appearance at C88 too. It’s a great vintage decor piece, comes with several different texture screens to choose from, as well as varying levels of noise and if that wasn’t enough there’s a ton of matching items available too. Perfect for creating your cosy, winter, indoor setting.

On The Road Of Least Resistance

On The Road Of Least Resistance

I decided I wanted to blog a more casual look today since it feels like I’ve mostly been taking either fancy, horror or cute pics lately, when in fact this is how you’d more likely catch me dressed around the grid. Something casual, over sized and comfy looking. More often than not I’m barefoot too, but I am so happy that Coco released these Ugg style boots and I can see myself wearing them a lot over the next couple of months. You can find them in a gacha machine at The Chapter Four, 75Ls per play, so I ended up with a few different colours before I got the chocolate ones I wanted, my dupes were given to friends as a little gift since they’re transfer.

I loved the feel of the sepia windlight for this scene and look that I put together, and I actually built this outfit around the shirt/cardigan combo I’m wearing. This is a new item from Gabriel that you can find at The Mens Dept. It is made for men and not women though, so ladies please make sure you demo before you buy it. There’s no shaping for your tata’s, but you can get away with it pretty easily as an oversized, baggy top. I’m wearing the mens small size which is the smallest it comes in.

Finally I added Drifts new unisex, chunky scarf, which has a great cable knit texture and lots of dark, autumn shades to choose from. Oh and a small note about this bag, it’s from House of Fox and it’s old but honestly it’s been a staple in my SL inventory for a while now. I have one almost identical in RL and it’s pretty much my go to bag for day to day use, so makes sense that I use it a lot in SL too!

Shake My Way

Shake My Way

I know I don’t usually take two pictures for my posts, but I had to this time because originally I was just going to blog the hair and skin better and then I just loved the whole outfit and wanted to show that too!

So first the skin is the new Candy from Glam Affair that you can find at The Arcade. I had to tweak my shape a little to fit it but I didn’t mind because I love, love it so much! I’m wearing the 03 version here which is my fave but you can bet I stocked up on all the other make ups too, since they’re only 100Ls each!

The hair is the new Seiko style from Lelutka, I love how they manage to add the wisps and flyaway strands without the big alpha halo around the hair, it makes taking pictures editing them so easy because basically you don’t need to do anything!

Shake My Way

The boots I’m wearing are another new item from Deadwool which you can find at The Mens Dept that opened yesterday! The come in both rigged and non rigged versions, obviously I’m wearing the non rigged so that I could resize to fit better, with a few colour options available and only 270Ls! I think that is such a bargain price for something that you can get a lot of wear from over the coming autumn months.

The last bit of new are the poses, you’ve probably heard of Nati Williams who is a fellow blogger and has the cutest, unique style, well, Nati’s pose store Imeka has reopened now that she’s returned to SL and I couldn’t be happier about it! There are 4 new pose packs available as well as a gift pack, so make sure you check out her new, in world location and pick up some pretty new poses.

So I know we’re all about The Arcade this weekend, but don’t forget to save some of those Ls because FaMESHed kicked off a new round just yesterday!

This gorgeous Hina maxi dress is from Baiastice for June’s FaMESHed and I tell you, it’s to die for. If you ever wanna model-esque in SL, all you need to do is grab this dress. It has a slim, sleek fit but still looks as though the fabric is just effortlessly draped from your body. The detail of the mesh and the folds around the belt is crafted beautifully. I didn’t even want to try and wear this differently or add tons of accessories because the dress just speaks for itself. There are a few different plain coloured options available as well as some printed versions including this tropical lavender one I’m wearing and a striped zebra print which are probably my favourites.

I’m also wearing the new Charlize hair from Truth which is a great little windswept bob. It’s a lot sleeker than a lot of Truth hairs and I can’t get enough of it!

I can be found for the next couple of days wandering around gacha yardsales (looking for Lulu 07, shameless plug I know lol, pls IM me if you have it and wanna sell it though!) in this outfit, I don’t even care if it’s a little bit fancy because I just love it!

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 :)
