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!

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!

Ride ‘Em

Ride 'Em

Hi guys! I’ve been away for a couple of weeks doing well, RL summer things! But today I’m back and thought I’d go with a casual little look just to get me back into the swing of it and to catch up on some fab things I missed out on.

First of all the Jill hair with hat from Truth! If you read my blog often you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of hair with hats, headbands etc, so this cute lil cowgirl do is a very welcome addition.

I’m wearing a recent release from Tulip with this oversized tank that’s cut shorter at the front, I originally wore it as a dress which it looks adorable as, but the angle of the picture basically upskirted me lol, so I just added some Tres Blah system layer shorts.

The necklace I’m wearing is not new but it’s 50% off NOW at HandVerk. They’re having a summer sale which goes on till the 8th of July, with everything half price so I had to nip over and grab a few bargains, make sure you don’t miss out, lots of jewellery and accessories to choose from!

The sunglasses are a new unisex item by K_gs (Kumaki glasses style) available at The Mens Dept that opened today, and the pose is a new release by Kirin at The Box!

Anyway, I have to get off and catch up with some more shopping and picture taking, happy Friday!

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!

New from LaRoo!

New from LaRoo!

Last week I blogged about the new mesh footwear store LaRoo that would be opening soon. They were due to open on the 7th but some setbacks saw that date delayed, but now, they’re finally open! You can find LaRoo on the Fresco sim, located opposite FaMESHed. I went over and checked it out and it’s a lovely mesh build, great for taking pictures.

LaRoo have 2 new items out for their opening and my favourites are these Clyde boots. They come in lots of different colours and the studs give them that extra something. They’re non rigged mesh so you can resize as needed. The only thing I’d have liked is if they came with both gold and silver studs, since I pretty much always pick gold over silver, but I can’t have it all so I just wore them in gold instead!

I’m also wearing this new mesh top from The Secret Store at C88. It’s so pretty and well made and the gold accents easily make it a new favourite for me. At only 88Ls I’m definitely gonna be going back for 2nds, and 3rds and ok, maybe I’ll just get all the colours!

Just Peachy

I got a mix of some old and new stuff today!

First this new hair from D!va. It’s a kind of hybrid hair with the bottom section made of mesh while the main part is just like regular hair. I have to admit that the few hairs that have been released that are a mix like that are ones that I like. Because you can get the nice wispy textures to frame your face without having giant alphas around them, which is a pain for taking photos. This hair is super cute and definitely worth demoing!

I’m also wearing the new cardigan that was released by Belgravia a couple of days ago. I loooove cardigans – seriously can’t get enough of them and being able to layer things -even though it’s a nuisance and often impossible to layer mesh on mesh. There are still lots of pretty texture layer items to go with mesh outerwear though, like this top from Tres Blah.

The necklace is from Glow Studio and I think has a couple of days left on offer at TDR, so make sure you snatch it up! I buy a lot of my accessories from events like TDR or C88, even if I don’t have anything in mind for it at the time they’re always a good buy “just in case”.

So that’s my hump day LOTD for you! Hope you like :)
