Even The Summer Ends

Even Summer Has To End

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week, I have to say that I most definitely am after getting a preview of the Belleza mesh body! I’m pictured here with Kalli, both wearing the new Venus body, which will be available soon at Belleza.

We’ve been getting teasers of this body since May, and I feel like I’ve waited a life time for it. I’ve never owned mesh body parts besides hands and feet before. I never had a phat azz, or a pair of lola’s coz I never felt they were natural enough shapes. When the Wowmeh body was released, I read a couple of blog reviews and while they were generally good, there were still a lot of flaws and I never really felt like that would be the answer to the mesh body situation. There was The Shops mesh project, freebie body, but again I never felt like that was going to be what I wanted – besides the fact that I don’t like to shop there anyway. The SLink physique of course was the next big step for mesh bodies, however after I watched a friend demo it, I was left disappointed. I felt like it just had too boyish a figure for my taste. So I sat and waited patiently for Belleza.

Well I don’t feel disappointed let me tell ya. This body is everything I wanted it to be and more. It has curves and is still customiseable with a simple edit appearance, thanks to the fitted mesh system.
One of it’s best features is the fact that you can change your hand gestures and foot height with the simple click of the HUD. It is SLink compatible so if you’re attached to those hands and feet you can wear them, but of course if you wear the Belleza version, you’ll be absolutely seamless.

I know I said last week that I don’t take many NSFW pictures but I legit cannot stop staring at my boobs. Ask any of my friends in SL and they’ll tell you that if we’re standing around styling outfits, my avatar is the only one always wearing bra and panties. WELL NOT ANY MORE! I love boobs, I do. I really love them, and these are just amazing. I have a feeling that I’ll be looking for any reason to show them off for the next few weeks!

As yet there is no exact release date for the Belleza Venus body, there have been rumours that it could be this coming Wednesday but this has not been officially confirmed. I know that the Belleza team are working hard to make sure that the item is as close to perfect as can be, before it’s release, so please be patient! It’ll be worth the wait.

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!

I Think I’ll Miss You Forever

I Think I'll Miss You Forever

Spring is definitely in the air, and the items at recent events are really reflecting that. I love all the nude and light pastel tones that come out in spring, it’s probably one of my favourite colour pallets so I always get excited when I see something similar as one of the monthly themes at C88.

I got together with my bff4life, Harper, to take this pretty shot with a bunch of stuff from Collbor88, and tried to give it something of a vintage feel. The pose we’re using is actually a couples pose from !bang, of course I had to sit on the blue ball coz I was tallest!

Let me start with this amazing hair from Tableau Vivant that I’m wearing. There is never enough wavy or curly hair in SL, in my opinion, so I always get very excited when I see one. There are 2 versions of this hair available at C88, with and without a floral headband attached. Very boho and perfect for spring.

I loved the simple, system layer bandeau tops that Tres Blah released too. Obviously I’m a huge mesh fan but it’s nice now and then to get something like this that you can use for layering, plus as I said a couple of weeks ago, I’m really into cropped tops at the moment.

Skirts and dresses were huge this round at C88. We styled this picture with the nude ones available from Secret Store (on me) and Nylon Outfitters (on Harper). The Secret Store skirt has a really nice HUD feature that has 3 different lace options for the top layer and I’m always a fan of extra options!

The shoes that we are both wearing are a new release from Just Design, out today for The Seasons Story. They come with the mesh socks included, which can also be worn by themselves. If you want to wear the shoes without the socks, then you need to make sure you have the JD MyFeet, as they are made to be add ons for them. As well as the wooden platform and heel, there’s also an option to change the texture to match the shoes and if you get the fatpack then all the colours are interchangeable via the HUD. The fact that you can wear the socks separately and with other shoes too, is a huge bonus. I got these shoes a couple of days ago and I honestly have not taken them off since.

As far as the background goes, the balloon swings are out at C88 by Flowey, and of course they’re animated. Great decor piece or pose prop. The little chicken toy that’s sitting on it is one of several cute, little collectibles from Marmelade at the Fiction and Fables event.

I have so much cute and pretty stuff in my inventory right now that I really need to run and take more pics. So, bye!

Sunshine She’s Here

Sunshine She's Here

Happy Hump Day all! I’ve got quite a few new things that have been released over the past couple of weeks, to show you today. First of all let me start by saying how much I love this combo I’m wearing. I think I’m on my 3rd day of wearing it in world, with slight variations to my hair and shoes. I still don’t see myself taking it off any time soon. So sorry/not sorry to anyone who has to see me in the same outfit for days on end, but I adore it!

So from top to bottom, I’ve got the Harriet hair from Truth that was out last week. I love this style coz it’s not as big as some of his others, the fringe on it too is seriously cute. I’m wearing the bikini top from Surf Co at The Arcade, only a couple more days to try your luck and grab this! It’s not mesh but that makes it great for layering, which I can see myself doing a lot of this spring/summer, since I have a huge thing for high waisted bottoms with cropped tops lately.

The skirt and bag are both out at Collabor88 for March’s round, by Tres Blah and Glam Affair. I’m a huge tote lover in RL and have a habit of collecting them in SL, so this bag was a welcome addition to that. I especially liked that it has a notebook inside, bags with extra touches like that are sorely lacking in SL. It gives an extra touch of realism and I’m hoping more will pop up this season. The skirt is just a perfect staple item, I purchased 4 of them in different patterns, including floral and leather, along with this striped version. I just know I’m gonna wear them to death.

My cute sandals are a recent release from Pure Poison, that you can pick up at their main store. They’re SLink add ons and very reasonably priced, I think I got a fatpack of 4 colours for around 400Ls. Definitely worth grabbing!

Finally my pose is a new release from one of my favourite pose stores, Imeka, who are making an appearance at Kustom9-

I took this picture at the newly reopened Neva Sky Villi, which has been one of my favourite locations for pictures since it opened last year. I’m excited to go back and really explore the new little areas that Neva has put in for spring. If you’ve not visited yet, make sure you do!

Ain’t Nothin’ But A Daydream

Ain't Nothin' But A Daydream

I love the combination of blues, greens and whites/creams at this time of year, pretty sure that’s all to do with the way the seasons change and everything starts to look bright, fresh and new. Somehow it spills over into my styling and pictures too. Anyway I’ve got a couple more new goodies from The Fantasy Collective today and I’m gonna start with the main item which is this dress from Peqe.

I started flailing as soon as I put it on, because I adore it so much. Although I’ve cropped this picture, the dress is maxi, full length and you can see the generous split to the thigh. Not only does it have a plunging neckline but it’s a halter neck, so it’s backless too and gives you a sexy showing of side boob, which is always my personal favourite cut on tops and dresses. Since it’s at The Fantasy Collective the obvious way to style it is to go something in that direction (fantasy) but I saw so many gorgeous pics in that style on Flickr already that I decided to go with something more mainstream to show you how versatile it is.

I added the Tableau Vivant Sabahi hair which is out at the same event too, again it’s themed towards fantasy since that’s the whole idea, but it’s still perfect for mainstream looks too. Plus it comes in a version called Sabra too which is more unisex, so there’s something for the mens!

For accessories I added some hand chains from On A Lark which can be picked up at TFC and come with matching feet chains too (both made to fit SLink attachments) as well as the gorgeous Tallulah Drop necklace from Maxi Gossamer. All topped off with some oversized sunnys and the Audrey hat from Tres Blah at Collaborate, which while technically not a beach hat, I still think looks great.

I think I’m done for this week now, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

The Mens Dept started their December round today but us ladies weren’t left out in the cold! This gorgeous coat from K comes in both male and female sizes, with an array of colours to choose from. I did find the sizing on the womens to be a bit bigger than I’m used to (wearing an XXS here, usually I wear XS or S), although that does mean it’ll be easier for you to wear other mesh under it, but make sure you demo first. The telescope in the background, (which I didn’t get a good angle of, but Kalli did – see it here) is also available at The Mens Dept and is a unique prop and decor piece.

The boots from Just Design were out last weekend for The Rack event, but are now available in store. They are just perfect for winter and come with a ton of options including wearing the sock on or off and different colours, although the bi colour version of the boot itself that I’m wearing here is only available in the fatpack.

Finally, check out my fingerless gloves from A:S:S! These aren’t a new item but they’re one of the few glove applier layers available right now and I just love them for giving an outfit that extra something. I know I’m gonna be using them a lot this season.

Thank to Kalli for posing with me, if you want to see her version and get her credits, check out her blog!

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!
