Step into Autumn

Step into Autumn

Hihi everyone, I have a few more new things to show you today, all from events again!

So starting at the top is this new hair from Truth that you can pick up at The Seasons Story. I love hair with any kind of add on, hats, hairbands etc, so this is an easy favourite for me. The hat is colour change as you’d expect but also Truth has now moved to a HUD based colour change system for the hair too! This is great news for people who like to try and keep their inventory size in check.

The oversized coat is new from Ison at Collabor88,and as you probably know Ison are one of the few brands that still use the 88L price point regularly, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t make less money by doing that because that feels like such a bargain to me that I’ll buy 2 different colours at the very least, probably more!

Finally the last bit of new are the shoes from JD at The Seasons Story. There are so many options with these that the possibilities are endless, you can choose from the knee high socks, to ankle socks or no socks, with a ton of different sock colours as well as options on the shoes. Well worth checking out!

So that’s me for today, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Hiiiii! I’ve been gone a few days with RL so I just wanted to do a quick, pretty pic today with some things that came out while I was gone.

First a new low ponytail from Truth, I love the casual relaxed style. This dress I’m wearing was out from Miel for Fifty Linden Friday last week, although you can usually find items in the store after. It’s a really sweet peasant style dress, again casual and perfect for me running barefoot round the grid. I added the bolero from Chronokit that came out a couple of weeks ago, it’s such a sweet addition to any outfit and is only 100Ls, seriously such a bargain!

Anyway I hope you’re all keeping good and I’m excited to be back again and catching up!

Midsummer Style

Collabor88 opened yesterday with a new round and I tell you, I hardly knew where to start. There are so many gorgeous items out this month, lots of great SLink add on shoes and several really pretty dresses.

In the end I decided to show you the latest little number from Baiastice who are in this round as a guest. I don’t know about you but dresses for me are always the hardest to style. Seperate tops and bottoms are easier because you can mix and match, with dresses you really have to accessorize well to wear them differently. The cropped vest I’ve added from Toki Doki is one of my favourite items to do that with, I’ve worn it in blog posts a few times but it fits perfectly over a lot of other mesh items and can help to make an outfit just that little bit different.

Also new at C88 is the Lulu skin from Glam Affair that I’m wearing. Lulu is definitely my new favourite after I picked up several versions at The Arcade and so I was really pleased to see more released in my every day America tone to add to my collection!

My big statement earrings are new from Maxi at C88, they come in 3 different colours and are easy to resize if you’re not that into big earrings, personally, I love ‘em. The last bit of new in this post is the pose from Kirin who are also appearing at Collab as guests!

I’ve used some old hair that was released over the last few weeks in my latest posts, I think a lot of designers are holding out on us since Hair Fair starts soon and I simply can’t wait! It opens on the 13th July and will run for 2 weeks. There is a demo group that you can join in world where the hair demos will be sent out on the 12th, that way you can try hair on at home and be in and out of the fair in no time on the 13th! To join the group just copy and paste this link into local chat secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about and click! You can find other information regarding Hair Fair on their official website here.

I’m signing out for a couple of days now but you can bet I’m back in time for that!

Hi guys! I’ve been away for a few days so I’m breezing back in with this romantical, floaty pic today!

The maxi dress is a gorgeous new release from Drift at TDR Fusion. There are 3 different prints and colours available but I was really feeling the soft blue. Also this new Candy hair from Truth, I cannot tell you how much I love it, but believe me, it’s a lot!

I have a few new accessories on as well, the bracelet and necklace are available at TDR Fusion as well, by Glow Studio, the pretty daisy bag is one of Gizza’s items at The Arcade and the neckerchief is new from Ilo at The Mens Dept with both male and female versions available.

Finally I’m using another pose from Carolina Sautereau’s store, Kirin, this is from her new Nana pose set, make sure you check it out!

I’ll Take My Time

I'll Take My Time

I sure did take my time with this pic today, every single thing on the internet was so distracting! Also I think I’m getting hyper for The Arcade after I started looking at the shopping guide. Will be making a list for it after this!

Anyway on to the new things I have today! First this dress from Toki Doki which is beyond cute, I’ve been running round barefoot in it all day and will do for a while! It fits so nicely under the Fashionably Dead loose shirt which was released for C88 last month, if you didn’t pick it up then you can now get it at the main store. The full release of colours for the dress is available at the Toki Doki main store but Maya has also released a couple of colours for TDR Fusion if you’re looking for a bargain.

Another new release you can find at TDR is this relaxed ponytail with headband from LOQ. This is the full price item, not the discounted one, but it was well worth it and I bought a couple of colour packs. The headband is included and is colour change but the little hair flower is a seperate thing that I added. I’m also wearing Lagyo’s Tucano bangle you can pick up there, it’s just a fun piece and with a matching necklace available how can you say no!

Finally my pose is from a new store called Kirin which is owned by the talented Carolina Sautereau. I’m a huge fan of Carol’s blog and her styling so I’m excited to see her branching out into making poses, this will definitely be a new favourite pose store for me!

Hope you are all enjoying your week and aagghhhhh now I get to write my Arcade shopping list!

And She Walked

I was so excited on Friday when there was a notice in the Toki Doki group that Maya was back and had released her first item which is this super cute Haru jacket. I love Maya’s unique designs and textures so I’m looking forward to more releases from her this season. There is also a plain mint version of this jacket available for group members (small joining fee, it was something like 150Ls when I joined – may or may not have increased) and I always recommend this group to people as Toki Doki are usually very generous with group gifts being given often.

I adore this hairstyle from Boon, I’m not quite sure if I’ll actually wear it around but it’s great for pictures and a unique look. The Amande hair piece from LaGyo fits it perfectly too. I’m also wearing this new feather necklace from Sweet Leonard which I looove! It comes with matching earrings and is available in both and silver.

Anyway that’s all from me today, see ya!

SL DisneyBound – Week 1 – Peter Pan

SL DisneyBound Challenge - Peter Pan

There were so many events last week that today when I felt like I wanted to blog something but didn’t want to spend any money I was in a quandry. Sure, my “to blog” folder has a ton of stuff in it, but nothing that inspired me much to put a complete outfit together. I was talking to my ol’ buddy Harper and she reminded me about the new challenge that we’d both already decided we had to do. I wailed a bit that I didn’t have anything green to put a Peter Pan look together and that would mean that I’d have to go out and buy something, but she told me to just type green in my inventory search. So I started to do that, still complaining that I knew for a fact that I didn’t have any pants/shorts/skirts in green…and then, well it turns out that I did.

So this was a bit of a double challenge for me, I put this whole look together with things I already had in my inventory and had forgotten about. The only new item is this Teddy hair from Truth that was released a couple of days ago and I hadn’t blogged yet, but it was pretty damn perfect!

Anyway, this turned out to be a lot of fun and I’ll definitely be taking part again, not sure if I’ll do it weekly but at some point I will!

You can find more information on the DisneyBound challenge here on the Style Minions blog and don’t forget to check out the SL Disneybounding Flickr group for other great pictures and interpretations!

Wednesday

Wednesday

By the time I actually post this it will more than likely be just after midnight on Thursday for me, but let’s just pretend it’s still Wednesday, k? K.

I’ve got a few recent releases here that I wanted to share. Most were released over the last couple of weeks and I kept an eye on them till I found the whole outfit that I wanted to put together.

First I’ve got the new military jacket that was released by Chemistry. Lots of colours available and you get a couple of different styles with each. I’m wearing the hip length, collared version but you also get a longer length and both of those without the collar too. I love that Chemistry tends to give these options with their clothes as you feel like you’re getting real value for money. At only 250Ls this is one of the best buys for jackets that I’ve seen lately.

The loose fit denim shorts are a new mesh release from Gizza. They have a lovely little leather belt detail and the shorts are cut so that the pockets hang a little lower than the denim, making them that little bit different from others that are available elsewhere. These will be a great addition to your virtual wardrobe for not only this season, when you can pair them with tights or leggings, but the upcoming warming ones too!

The mesh top I’m wearing under the jacket is the city shirt from Drift. I won’t say that this was easy to layer with the coat, because it wasn’t. I wore the L in the coat and the XS in the top but still in certain poses some of the shirt would poke through on the arms, which was a bit annoying and I confess that I fixed it a bit in photoshop! It’s definitely doable but the fit won’t be perfect if you want to wear that shirt with the jacket – make sure you demo them together before you buy if that’s what you want to do, so that you won’t be disappointed!

I am so in love with this Lavinia hairstyle that Truth released over the weekend. Braids are mah thang yo, and this do is so cute without making me look like I’m trying to impersonate a teen. Really love, love!

Broken

I was hoping to get a lot of blogging done this week, as it’ll be my last chance to get a lot out there before the holidays, but my computer decided on Sunday night that it wanted to go and get itself corrupted and then not work, so I lost basically everything and had to start again, which was very annoying and also means I won’t get as much done as I wanted this week, so sorry about that :(

Anyyyyway, I got some new stuff to show ya that was released over the last few days! First of all this hair from Truth. A yummy, messy up do that’s just perfect for pictures coz you get to add some wispy bits (creative license, a lot of it was already there but I did add a few just for the hell of it) and it’s also a great fit for the Auxillary hair bow that you can get from The Arcade!

C88 opened their new round on the weekend and I’m so in love with this lace top from Nylon Outfitters. The texturing is really well done and it’s nice to have something new to layer under mesh. It does come with a bra too if you don’t feel like being risque! Also from C88 is the necklace I’m wearing by Maxi Gossamer. The detail and mesh is the usual high standard you’d expect from MG and it comes in both long and short versions as well as in both gold and silver. I love that MG nearly always gives these options coz I have a penchant for long necklaces and it makes me sad face if a necklace I love only comes short.

TDR also kicked off their new TDR Fusion this weekend and there is SO much good stuff available! This belt is from LaGyo and comes in a couple of colours, it’s non rigged mesh so easy to adjust. SLink also put out a fab item – their new Vanity mesh boots. I was wearing them in this pic (which is the reason I’m not wearing mesh jeans, coz I wanted the tucked in look) but I’ll be honest, the picture just looked better cropped so they got cut off. I wanted to mention them though because I’m sure they’ll make appearances here and at only 70L while they’re at TDR Fusion you simply must go and check them out before they’re at full price in the store!

The location I took this picture at was the MadPea Carneval. I’ve never been there before but a friend TP’d me and it was pretty cool so I knew I had to snap something there. I’m sure there’ll be more at some point as well so it’s definitely worth checking out if you wanna play on some rides or take some cool photos.

So that’s me for this hump day, I’m gonna be trying to get a couple more posts done this week but with holidays and all it’s starting to get a bit manic!

Time is Ticking

Disclaimer: This blog title has absolutely nothing to do with the picture and everything to do with the fact that I am sooooo short on time today, but damn so much to write about!

First of all I’ll start by saying that when my friend Harper saw me wearing the outfit I blogged yesterday, she called me a….actually I can’t say what she called me because I wanna get this post on to iheartsl.com which is now SFW! If you didn’t know now you do, anyone who was listed to feed must reapply and you can find some info on the SFW guidelines and what to do if your blog has mixed content here on Cajsa’s blog.

So after that incident I decided to go a little cuter today. This mesh hair from Truth was perfect for the look along with the new Granny’s Pearl necklace from LaGyo which you can get from TDR along with matching earrings and both are scripted to texture change.

I’m also wearing another recent release from Emery which is this mesh blazer that comes in a range of different colours. Obviously I went for the natural, nude looking colour because I’m boring like that. The jeans I’m wearing were recent from The Secret Store and they’re pretty amazing. I had a high waist system pair from Imbue that I used to wear a LOT, so I was really happy to be able to get a pair in mesh.

The picture was taken at Neva Dunes, which is the home of Neva Crystall and has been opened to the public for a few days. I believe it’s open until the 4th so make sure you pop over and visit and get your photo ops while you can! I’m a huge fan of Neva’s and it’s great to be able to look around and see her work, I find it really inspirational too. Like now I need to go buy a new house! Here’s the SLURL if you want to go visit.

Oh last thing, I’ve also started to link all my pictures directly to my Flickr, so if you want to see the picture in better quality just click on the pic and open the link, I have to make them smaller so that I don’t mess up any feeds and so the quality is not always what they should be. I’m sure there’s a way to fix this, but I don’t know how – I am really blonde in RL.

That’s all from me this week, I hope everyone enjoys the weekend!
