Sticks and Stones

Obviously I have no idea what I’m doing with this outfit, it’s just a bunch of cool stuff that I thought was COOL so I wore it and now I LOOK COOL TOO.

The hair you can pick up from the Tableau Vivant at the pirate themed round of The Fantasy Collective, the nose chain and corset are new things from Zaara and Aisling at We <3 RP and finally the tattoo is from Reckless out at The Mens Dept!

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.

A Little Bit Of Fantasy

A Little Bit Of Fantasy

The Fantasy Collective opens it’s doors today, and brings you lots of great designers with their new woodland themed releases. I’m wearing this beautiful leaf jewellery set from Zibska that will add a delicate and elegant touch to any outfit or costume. It includes a necklace, forearm and upper arm piece, as well as a matching circlet that I couldn’t wear coz, well, big hair.

Of course I’m wearing the Glam Affair Ballerina Vanity feet that you can find at Shoetopia, as soon as I saw them I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist finding a big music box and hopping on top like a dancer.

Anyway, I hope you liked the little bit of fantasy I brought today, and have fun finding some yourself at The Fantasy Collective.

A Million Different People

A Million Different People

Hiiii! Hope everyone is having a good start to their week. I’m back today with a bunch of new things that were released over the past few days.

First some newness from Collaborate, the hair from Lamb as well as the cropped pants and oxford style shoes with socks which are both by Baiastice. I love Lamb hair and I always get excited when I see her participating in events, there are 2 styles out at C88 for you to treat yourself with!

Also new are the sunglasses by Sorgo and the scarf from Pixel Mode which are both unisex items you can find at The Mens Dept. Sorgo always releases unique style glasses and gives you the option of having them as regular ones or shades, lately they’ve been giving a “display” model too, which has the arms folded up so you can hold them in your hand. This scarf is great too, I’ve been looking for new ones over the past couple of weeks and I love how the mesh is shaped so that it partially covers your mouth. It’s not rigged so easy to resize if you need.

Finally I’m wearing Emery’s latest item for FaMESHed, which is the cardigan with T-shirt, a great item for the colder weather and really stylish too. I’m using a recent pose that was out at Imeka’s store a little while ago as well.

Oh and let me just add…I know I’ve taken several pictures at Neva Sky Villi since it opened but it’s just my absolute favourite sim for taking shots at right now. There are so many different areas to explore that you could take 100 pics there and never have the same background twice. It can be pretty laggy at times but I think the results are worth it.

A Little Birdy Told Me….

A Little Birdy Told Me

There are so many fantastic events going on right now, with autumn fashions making a big splash on the grid, so I’m put this simple little look together with a few new pieces.

Birdy is one of those skin brands, like The Skinnery, that I always see pictures of people looking fantastic in on Flickr, but a lot of the time when I demo them and see them on myself my reaction is…oh. Something about my shape just doesn’t really suit them but I went out to demo this Ingrid skin from Birdy that you can find at The Chapter Four (for only 99Ls!!) and I just loved it. It won’t replace my every day Glam Affair skins, but I’ll definitely be pulling it out when I need a change. I used Annan Adored’s Tan Skin windlight setting for the close up because it gives some nice added saturation to the skin that I can play around with in PS if I want to. I visited the Birdy main store to pick up the appliers for SLink hands and feet and decided that the sim was so pretty that I’d take my pictures there too!

A Little Birdy Told Me

Some more new things from Collabor88, this fantastic long line cardigan from House of Fox, I love the slightly square shape to the shoulders on the mesh, which makes it a little bit different. Also new are these boots from Ison @ C88 which, I’m not gonna lie, are just to die for. They’re obviously mesh and at only 188Ls a pair you can easily afford to stock up for autumn and winter!

I’m wearing this new hairstyle from Tulip as well, which is available at The Seasons Story event. This is absolutely my favourite one Mina has made so far, I didn’t even want to edit it with wisps and strands like I normally try to do, because I just loved it the way it was.

Finally both the poses are from a new autumn set that Kirin released for The Seasons Story too!

Nothing Sweet About Me

Nothing Sweet About Me

I really don’t do the cute look very often, because frankly there are a ton of bloggers who do it way better than I can and it’s not something I’m usually comfortable in, but now and then there’s a release that just makes me wanna be cute and this adorable curly hair style from D!va is one of those.

So in a bid to be a bit cuter, I decided that of course I needed some pink. This new turtle neck from Teefy that you can find at Collabor88 was perfect for that and so was this pose with owl prop from Imeka. You can find the prop at The Seasons Story event which just opened.

I ended up cropping this picture a little weird, I normally would’ve cropped it smaller cutting off my legs more but I really wanted to show you guys these skyline tights! I admit I squeed a little when I saw the London skyline version and couldn’t wait to put them on, there’s also a New York and Paris version too. These are from Cannibelle which is just on the marketplace for the moment, along with some fab polka dotted tights as well. Perfect for this season and best of all they’re compatible with the SLink mesh feet!

Anyway, my regular style will resume tomorrow coz I’m really not this sweet at all.

Take It Easy

Take It Easy

I’m back today with some more great new things available at Summerfest! It opened yesterday and if you haven’t been yet then you have 2 weeks to do so!

First of all let me start with this new skin from The Skinnery. I’ve seen lots of pictures on Flickr and blogs of Skinnery skins and I always loved the natural and realistic look of them, but whenever I demoed they never seemed to be quite right on me coz of my shape or whatever, that was until today! Angie is The Skinnery’s “beach babe” skin and I have to say I’m really liking it, a lot.

The way the lips are shaded to give them extra shape, the textures and shading around the eyes to give them a very realistic and natural effect is perfect to me. I’m forever wearing dark eye circles on tattoo layers and whatnot, but none of them look as good as these ones do. There are a ton of options for the skin too, with freckles, sunburn and the under eye circles all being on tattoo layers so you can mix it up to your tastes. There are 3 different eyebrow shape hair bases and you a tintable eyebrow tattoo layer too, since the skin comes just with the blonde brows. Anyway, if you’re looking for something a bit different, I definitely recommend this skin!

Also new from Summerfest are these cute tops and shorts from Tulip. The loose tee has a cut out back which gives it a certain sassiness and makes it a little bit different from most others, and the cutoff jean shorts are a classic staple item, which I particularly love in this white wash colour. You can pick up these cool shades by Tabloid there too! Lots of colours available but of course I picked a neutral shade, since that’s usually my thing.

Finally I’m wearing a new hair from Truth, a very relaxed casual braid that’s perfect for a stroll on the beach on Sunday!
