Soul Of A Lioness

Soul of a Lioness

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!

If Everybody Had An Ocean

If Everybody Had An Ocean

I got a couple more new things to show you guys today, as well as a few recent items that I missed while I was away. I’ve been desperately trying to catch up the past couple of days and you should see the state of my inventory :(

First of all this new denim overall set from Baiastice, which was was out at FaMESHed yesterday. It comes in lots of different colours, including the classic denim I’m wearing. It also has a HUD which you can use to change the colour of the bra/bikini top underneath, or even make it disappear if you want to wear your own top beneath. It’s a really fun and cute outfit that you could style so many ways.

Recent items are this hair from Milk, out at Kustom9 and the platform sandals from Pure Poison. The necklace is at C88 from LaGyo, it was out for Mays’s round so you still have a couple more days to grab this statement piece, if you didn’t already! My bag is a great little summer accessory from Milk Motion at The Arcade.

Deck The Halls

Deck The Halls

I debated about posting this picture for a little while, since it was never taken for the purpose of blogging. But I decided since it’s the holidays that I’d share something with you guys that was a little bit more personal.

This photo isn’t about new releases, the styling, or even the decor. It’s just myself and 3 people who mean the world to me in SL, making a little family that I couldn’t be without.

The Next Day and The Next Day

The Next Day and The Next Day

There was a discussion on Plurk a few days ago about whether or not people preferred their favourite brands to participate in regular events, or to put out releases in their main stores. I am definitely a store shopper, mostly I can’t be bothered to trawl through the marketplace, so I do visit my favourite stores fairly often, and I’d like to see more releases in them, but I also still get excited about a few of the regular events and always try to go on the days they open. So basically, in my ideal world, creators would have a clone of themselves so they can participate in all the events all the time, as well as put out regular store releases :D

I did notice though that I tend to blog more things that are sold at events, rather than main store releases. I think this is most likely because when a new round of whatever event opens, I buy a ton of stuff from all different creators and can easily fill my inventory up with things to blog for an entire week or two from just one event.

Anyway, in an effort to blog more store releases and not just event items, I decided to show this cute tank dress from House of Fox that was released a week or so ago at their main location. I’m absolutely in love with the denim version and have worn it almost every day since I bought it. It’s so easy to glam up or style down into a more casual outfit that I think it’s an absolute essential for a virtual wardrobe.

I’ve also added the new hair from Wasabi Pills that was out for C88, I don’t wear many short dos but I haven’t taken this one off! It’s such a classic style and the headband is a great addition. Another favourite of mine from this months Collab are these shoes from Milk Motion that I’m wearing. They’re add ons for the SLink feet and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see more and more of my favourite designers making add ons for these. Although I, of course owned plenty of shoes in world, 9 times out of 10 when I was getting dressed for the day I’d normally have gone barefoot, but not anymore! Now I just need SLink to make the tip toe version of the feet available for add ons too, coz I do love me some high, high heels.

The last bit of new are my vintage style sunglasses from Glam Affair at Collabor88 and the cute pose is one of several from Kirin’s new Florence set out there too.

Hope everyone had a great start to their week!

And Where We Walk…

And Where We Walk...

Hi guys! I hope you’re all enjoying your summer, I am and honestly I think this is why I’ve been distracted from blogging over the past couple of weeks. Anyway this is just a quick post today because I wanted to show you the new weekend jeans from Drift and talk a little about the location I used for this pic.

The location is actually a main store for an awesome new (so new that it hasn’t even been open a week yet!) brand called Seven Emporium which makes the most gorgeous little knick knacks and deco pieces. Of course you can tell the sim is a great place for photoshoots, with lots of beautiful little areas hidden away for you to explore. I definitely recommend checking the store out if you’re after unique, original mesh decor and maybe taking a photo or three! Keep an eye out for Seven Emporium in the next round of The Mens Dept too!

All That Attitude

All That Attitude

I just have a couple of new things I wanted to show you quickly today with this picture. First of all this casual new tank that you can get from Milk Motion at Summerfest! It’s cut very low at the sides so there’s a healthy dosage of side boob, but I was feeling modest today and decided to wear a huge bra with it too! I love the way the mesh has been made so that it really looks like it’s just hanging from your avatars body though, definitely a must have for this season!

Also the hat I’m wearing is new from Miamai at L’accessoires. It comes with 2 options, with hair or without. I’m wearing the hair that it comes with in this pic and there’s a HUD so you can choose which colour hair you want, and matching hair bases.

Finally I’m using a pose from Kirin’s latest set, these are probably my favourite so far and I can’t tell you how happy I am to see another cute new pose store on the grid!

When The Sun Goes Down (and the weird questions meme)

When The Sun Goes Down

I might as well make this Summerfest week on my blog because there is seriously so much awesome to be found there! Not only does this event boast tons and tons of fab items from amazing creators, it’s also a great little sim to snap some pictures on. This is the second one I’ve taken there in the last few days and even with a whole bunch of shoppers there I didn’t experience any lag with my shadows on for pics.

I’m wearing this gorgeous new skin from Belleza that you can find there, as well as this 3D Flower bikini and hat which are both by Baiastice. Baiastice is definitely one of my favourites on the grid for mesh swimwear so make sure you check out these latest pieces!

Anyway, enough of the gushing, it’s been a while since I took part in one of Berry’s blog memes so I decided to add in her questions one today as well, since it was an easy one!

1. Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home) Collabor88

2. Does your avatar look like the real you? Not especially I don’t think.

3. Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid? Sometimes I wear a bra under a top but only to make it part of “the look” not because I think I need to be wearing it lol oh and I will wear panties if I’m wearing a mesh skirt that doesn’t quite cover everything. But other than those occasions, nope.

4. If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld? A sim, part of it for me to live on and part as a noob welcome area, but yanno, a really nice one and not something that was built circa 2007.

5. Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before? Yep, in my first few months of SL when I RP’d I found a store selling really fancy silks and I was forever going back and buying stuff, in the end I doubled quite a few sets without realizing it.

6. Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life? Umm, trespassing. I’m not a hardcore criminal like Berry who breaks into peoples houses but I’ve accidentally landed on random folks property a bunch of times.

7. If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be? I’m gonna say Marco, I don’t know him but I’m in love with his avatar and styling and in awe of his talent.

8. Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive? I think for me probably Onyx LeShelle from Maitreya, mainly because her creations are so just well, perfect, and were a large part of what got me interested in SL fashion.

9. What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done inworld? Hmm, lots of awkward moments that involve failed TPs, missing clothes, accidentally saying something in local that was meant for IM or in the wrong IM box etc, I don’t think I can pin point one as the most embaressing.

10. If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you? “You know that gravity doesn’t have to exist here right?”

Anyway, I’m out for the day, ciao!

Spring Showers

Spring Showers

Look at me, two posts in one day! I needed to make up for my absence so I figured why not.

I love days like this, where it’s warm outside but it starts to rain, I call this “sexy rain” when you can umm, sit, outside on your balcony in your summer clothes and just you know….listen to the rain fall.

Anyway, I mixed up a bunch of new releases for this outfit. The top is actually the new dress from Drift, but I decided to wear it as more of a sweater with the new jeans from Tutti Frutti. I love the soft knit texture on the dress, it’s perfect for spring days, and the cloud texture for the jeans is just that little bit different to make them stand out.

I added the new Isis Solar Magic necklace from Maxi Gossamer that was released at Collabor88 today. I’m absolutely in love with it, the design is so unique and it has lots of colour change options as well as coming in both gold and silver. The umbrella I picked up at C88 too, which was one of Yummy’s offerings for this round. The little neck scarf I’m wearing is from Baiastice and you can find it FaMESHed, it’s a great little accessory that you can mix and match with lots of outfits.

Yes, I’m still wearing the new Scarlet hair from Lelutka that was in my post earlier today coz well, I really like it!

The Power Dress

The Power Dress

The Dressing Room Fusion kicked off with a new round yesterday and today I wanted to show you one of my favourite items that you can grab at a discount and that’s this Mina dress from Milk Motion.

I’ve really loved a couple of Milk Motion’s latest releases and I definitely think they’re one of the upcoming designers. The texturing can be very simple and plain on some of their items but it’s improving and the designs are always fresh and funky. This dress is very cleverly designed in that it’s a mesh and layer hybrid, with the mesh reaching to just under your bust and the shoulder pads as extras. The top part is a regular system layer and guess what that means? It comes with appliers and can be worn with your Lola’s!

I don’t own mesh boobs (I’ve been told that I should…I’m still unconvinced) but since their release they’re pretty unmissable on the feeds and Flickr and lots of designers are now catering for them so there is a much broader range available and you don’t need to just walk around with half your bosom on display.

So although this dress is very simple, that makes it easy to accessorize and the high waist Hurley belt that LaGyo released last week for Collabor88 fits perfectly. I added the LaGyo Starla bracelet that can also be found at TDR Fusion and matches the other items they released for C88.

I’m also wearing this amazing new hair do from Lamb. I really need more Lamb in my life and I wish they released more often, but I can’t have it all so I’ll just snatch it up when I can. One of my favourite things about Lamb hair are the ombre and roots options they have. I know other designers do this as well but the contrast of Lamb’s blondes to the browns looks so realistic. I like being blonde but I always think my face looks odd when I add blonde brows, so with the dark roots from Lamb then I can get away with wearing my dark brows still. I could easily wear a blonde ombre with roots like this all day long.

The striking pose I used is by Embody in their Stand By pack, which you can now get in their pose mega pack for a reduced price!

Make sure you visit The Dressing Rooms new round and grab yourself some bargains!
