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!

I had a little lol moment to myself earlier today when I was working on this pic, just because it’s such a huge contrast compared to the one I made yesterday. And ok, it’s not my normal style but it’s fun to dress up when something like World Goth Fair hits the grid!

The skin I’m wearing is new Jalwa and can be found at the Goth Fair, along with the eyeshadow layer. It comes in the usual tones but also includes a vamp and goth shade (I’m wearing goth) which are just perfect for that dark look. Also includes hands and feet appliers for the SLink attachments!

The top I’m wearing is new from Baiastice and can be found at The Boutique. It comes in lots of different summery colours as well but of course I’m wearing black for this style. It’s a halter neck with ties at the back and I might have to blog it again at some point to show that off because it’s really very striking. The bangles I’m wearing I picked up at Teefy last week for Fifty Linden Friday, but they’re usually still in store now, just a bit higher in price.

The head piece is something I picked up by Glam Affair at The Dressing Room forever ago, seriously about a year ago, but just hadn’t had a chance to wear yet. I do this a lot, buy things when they’re cheap just in case I need it one day and low and behold, today was that day!

I’m still wearing Ikon’s new Vanity eyes, I absolutely love them! The variety in colours that Ikon provides is easily the best on the grid for me, everything from super realistic to fantasy so you’re never at a loss!

Oh and the hair, it’s an old style from Elikatira which I’ve worn a couple of over the last few weeks and lamented about how sad I was that they were closed, but I recently found out that actually the store is still open with all the hairs at the sale price! I have no idea why or how long that’ll be for but if you missed the sale then now is a great chance to grab those hairs!

Coffee and Cake

FaMESHed are celebrating their one year anniversary this month and have invited back all the designers who have participated so far! There is a huuuuuge array of goodies available, clothes and accessories for both men and women as well as lots of great decor pieces, so make sure you visit!

I was immediately in love with this new denim jacket that Emery released for the event. I’ve been silently willing someone to make one for a while now and I’m so glad Emery did. There are a few different shades available, I opted for the mid blue, and the quality is fantabulous.

Baiastice also have some great new releases for this round, including this cute dress! It would’ve been so easy to dress this up in a formal way, but I decided I wanted to wear it a bit differently. It comes in both striped or plain, (I say plain, it’s a white top half with a coloured skirt part) patterns and is gonna be great for the spring/summer season. They also released a new cross jewellery set, which comprises of a necklace and matching ring, these are exactly the kinda style I love to wear so I know I’ll get a lot of use out of them and I’m sure they’ll make a few appearances here!

I’d been tempted to wear a pair of scruffy combat type boots with this outfit, which would’ve looked cute too but I decided to go with these SLink heels that I picked up yesterday because I wanted to mention their sale to you. If you didn’t know, SLink are reducing everything by 30% for this week (excluding the mesh hands and feet) which will run until the 5th of May. You can read more details about the why at their official blog.

I picked up these glasses by Sorgo at the latest round of TDR that started on Friday. I love the style of them but I noticed that the lens was darker on the bottom half than it was on the top, which would’ve been fine if it blended into the lighter half, but it didn’t. It just looked like when SL messes up and you get those squares of darker resolution on your pics, right under my eyes. So I fixed that in Photoshop because I didn’t like it.

Anyway, that’s all from me today, hope you’re enjoying your week and make sure to visit FaMESHed!

Spring It On

Spring It On

See what I did there? With the title?! Bring it on, spring it on! Haha, yea laughing at my own little jokes today, I’m that lame. ANYWAY, I guess I’m pretty early because it is still February but I really cannot wait for spring, I’m so ready!

I got together with my bff4life Harper from Pixel Pantomime coz we’ve been meaning to do another picture together for a while and even though we attempted one last week, I hated everyyyyy picture I took. Some times you just get days like that.

We were inspired by these new hairs from Truth and LeLutka to do kind of hippy style looks, I did get told off for not being Woodstock enough but I liked this new tank from Drift (grabbed it for Lazy Sunday, not sure if it’s in the main store still but one would assume so!) so it was staying, end of story. We hopped on over to Noweeta Grasslands which is a great sim for spring/summery pics and had a fun little shoot.

I’ll add a link to Harper’s post when she’s posted her’s so that you can find her credits there, but here’s mine for now!

Fanatik Blogger Search

Fanatik Blogger Search - Coral Lacey

Hiiii guys! Hope everyone is doing well this weekend!

I’ve been away in RL for a couple of days and I rushed home and jumped on the PC coz I knew I needed to put a look together and make a pic for the Fanatik blogger search. You can read all the deets on how to enter here. Closing date is tomorrow though so be quick!

Anyway, I put it off right till the last minute since Fanatik regularly appear in one of my favourite monthly events, FaMESHed and I wanted to see what new good things they put out, which were these fab mesh leggings. I probably didn’t need more mesh leggings if I’m honest, I have a lot, BUT…I didn’t have any in camel! It’s always nice to have slightly different variations of things too, so they made their way into my inventory while I got the rest of my outfit together.

I paired the leggings up with a new top and cardigan from Baiastice which are absolutely perfect together. The Aida top is of course just like the Aida dress that was released a few months ago, and the cardigan fits right over the mesh so you don’t have to worry about wearing a bunch of random sizes to try and get your layering even without mesh pieces poking through.

Lelutka put out their latest hair collection while I was away, 3 very vintage and very fabulous styles so I snapped one of those up and decided to wear it in a dark red just to add a bit more colour to the whole look. This Gloria style comes with the hairband included that also has a dainty butterfly attachment, this can be removed with a click or you might choose to recolour it to match your accessories.

Also new is this statement necklace from .Olive. and the chain clutch bag by Lazybones, both of which can be found at the new weekly event SL Fashion Week.

Anyway, that’s me for today. Good luck to everyone who enters the Fanatik search!

What A Weekend

What a Weekend

The last few days have been eventful with new releases, events and hunts. It’s hard to know where to start, so I decided today that I’d pick one of my favourites from each and put together a look.

First of all I’m wearing the new Amberly skin from Glam Affair. There had been some teasers over the last few weeks for this skin but I’ve got to say it was well worth the wait. It’s one of those skins that not only do I love, but I feel like myself in. This is definitely a new favourite for me and easily has become my new every day skin. I particularly love that Glam Affair always includes a clean version now, since I do like a more fresh faced look most of the time and this gives me exactly that.

The hair I’m wearing is new from Tableau Vivant at The Arcade Gacha event that kicked off on Saturday, you can find all the SLURLS and items available on their Tumblr here. I must admit I didn’t expect to like this hair as much as I do and I certainly didn’t expect that it’d make me wanna go blonde. But I do and it did. It’s rigged mesh and comes in both male and female versions as well as a ton of colours which you can try and collect for just 50Ls a play!

FaMESHed also started a new round on Saturday and this daring dress from Fanatik was one of my favourite items. The mesh is shaped to give perfect curves and the spikes add some sass and come with a HUD so you can change them to either gold or silver.

Finally The With Love hunt brought to us by Chic Management started on Friday. You can find all the hints and SLURLS on Chic’s page here. There are tons of awesome items that you can pick up all for 10Ls and this tattoo I’m wearing is the item that’s available at Aitui.

Right now I need to get back to trying to organise my inventory, since this gacha event has caused me one helluva mess! Hope you all have a good week.

More from Vintage Fair

Back to some Vintage Fair releases today, I hope everyone’s been enjoying their shopping there the last few days!

This cute mesh top and skirt are both available from Tulip. The skirt comes in a few different colours, and the top is available in a couple of different prints. Obviously they go together really well so not much effort on the styling on my part. If you loved the dress that Tulip released a couple of weeks ago for FLF, well it’s also now available at the fair in lots of different colours!

The necklace I’m wearing is part of a new set from Maxi Gossamer at the fair. It comes with matching earrings and the necklaces are all separate, so you can wear them individually or together like I did. It also comes with a silver version too, so you can mix it up with a lot of outfits or other pieces of your fave jewellery! I love Maxi Gossamer for accessories, so much mesh goodness for such great prices and this set is just another great release from them.

Now let me talk a bit about these shoes. They’re available from SLink at the fair and as we know SLink have some of the finest mesh feet on the grid. The rigged womens bare natural feet are probably the most worn item in my inventory, and now that they have add on shoes for really reasonable prices, I hardly wear anything else these days. But now SLink have released this rigged mesh version of their tip toe feet which are included in with the shoes exclusively at Vintage Fair.

I think it’s pretty safe to assume that when the fair ends, the feet will be available seperately and the shoes too, so that you can just purchase them as add ons. Disclaimer – I don’t know this for sure, but I think it’s going to go that way. Right now the shoes and feet are available in a set for 700Ls. SLink usually charge 600Ls for their feet and the prices of the add on shoes for the flat feet are currently at 300Ls. So again, I’d assume that the heel shoes are going to be anywhere from 300Ls up. That means that by buying this set together, you should be saving at least 200Ls! Not only that but the feet can be worn by themselves and the shoes are just far too cute to pass up!

That’s all the items I’m wearing from the fair, the bag is by Glow Studio and is currently available at this round of TDR Blue for cheap!

Don’t forget that August’s C88 opens tomorrow, I get so excited the day before but I must now go do the necessary inventory cleaning to prepare for that!

Some Days

Some days, you don’t want to get up. You don’t want to get up, or get dressed, or fix your hair. But you force yourself to at least put on those comfy pants and that oversized cardigan and pull your hair back into some semblance of a style and you sit. You sit and wish that the world would stop turning and it feels like it should, because how can you go on after this? If it would all just stop, then it wouldn’t have happened and you wouldn’t have to face it. But it doesn’t, it has and you do.

I was wearing most of this outfit for a few days, partly because it was system layers and I wanted to be in those for demoing at Vintage Fair but mostly because I just felt like it. Then Toki Doki released this Apathetic Cardigan and it was just perfect to go with. I love the cable knit texture and the colours it’s available in are all soft and comfortable. I don’t know if you can describe a colour as comfortable but I just did. This cardigan is a must buy for those every day looks.

On a side note, I believe that the Toki Doki group is now back open for people to join. There is a 250L joining fee but Maya has already put out a group gift a couple of days ago. If you’re not in it, make sure you join so that you don’t miss out!

Maybe tomorrow I’ll feel like getting dressed.

Lazy Friday LOTD & Limited Bazaar

Yep it’s Friday! Yep, I’m feeling lazy!

Today saw the first round of a new event called Limited Bazaar, hosted by Euphoria. Every 2 weeks 15 designers will display limited editions for 150Ls. There will only be 100 of each item available. I have to say I think this is a pretty great idea for a showcase, it’s something different to the others (and there are a lot of others now) and it gives people the chance to purchase something that they don’t have to worry about running in to 20 people wearing at the same time. (Do we worry about that in virtual world? I don’t actually worry about it but I have to admit that I like the idea of owning something not many others do.) Anyway, I think it’s a great idea and I really hope this event takes off.

I have to admit that I didn’t actually hear about Limited Bazaar (I know – slacker!) until I saw it in a stores group notice today, I checked the time and it opened at 12pm SLT…which wasn’t good news for me as I expected to be out for RL at that point and I groaned a bit because I’d seen the Toki Doki releases and knew I had to get my hands on something at least. Luck was on my side today though and I was home earlier than expected, so I hot footed it over to Euphoria and yay! I managed to grab one of these limited edition Toki Doki cardigans. I love this cardi and I do have it in a couple of other colours already, I wear it a lot and I have blogged it before but this one is special so you get to see it again!

I know this is a very lazy post but actually this is kind of how I dress a lot of the time in world. Not with my bra on full display obviously…but just relaxed and casual and not over the top on accessories. Probably because I’m too lazy most days. In fact, I’m not even sure how I manage to blog at all my laziness can be so great.

So anyway, enough rambling. Oh! But this hair…it’s cute. Wasabi Pills at Hair Fair on the Water sim!

Finally…FLF (I had more to write than I thought). Love this chair from The Loft! It won’t go with my current house but unfortunately I’m one of those people who buys things -just in case- and sales and events like Fifty Linden Friday bring out the worst of that in me. Also this cute pose is from dfo! at FLF, so if you haven’t been yet you have a few more hours to go grab them!

Happy Friday everyone!

More From Maitreya

Well I didn’t intend to make another post quite so quickly, but in true addict style I figured, “hey, I’ve got nothing better to do than sleep, right?” So here I am!

This is the new mesh top and flared jeans that were released earlier on by Maitreya, I’m actually too tired now to write more than…see how good they are?? Oh and! I love my butt in these jeans, I don’t know if they changed the shape for them but Maitreya always did a really good butt shape on the mesh dresses and skirts I thought, but when the skinny jeans and leggings came out I thought it looked a bit flat, however I personally think it’s a lot better in these ones, nice and curvy! Yes, I’m wearing the hat and hair combo again!

Also, 3rd blog post in a row for these SLink Ilena sandals…and I’ve had so many IMs in world asking where I got them from, if you don’t have them yet, why not?? They go with eeeeeeverryyyyything! Yah seriously, I might not take them off till October.
