Started Looking And The Bubble Burst

Started Looking And The Bubble Burst

I guess I was feeling super inspired with all this apocalyptic stuff being released and the lure of virtual events to go drop my Ls all around.

So lemme start with this hair from Soonsiki (formerly Milk) that you can get at FaMESHed today. Big, crazy curls, what’s not to love?? The dress is another item from FaMESHed, by Zenith. Zenith have really been stepping up lately and all of their releases are getting better and better. I loved the casual, worn look of this dress so it was pretty easy to decide to pair it with these boots from Deadwool, out at Uber. These are a unisex item and come with both rigged, unrigged and cut versions. So great to resize or wear with pants too. You can pick up this great looking bag from Uber too. I can never get enough of RP ready bags so this is a welcome addition to my inventory!

Does She Speak Eloquently

Does She Speak Eloquently

Happy hump day guys! Just here to show you the new Aria skin from Glam Affair, that will be out on the 1st at The Arcade!

Aida has done a beautiful job as usual with this skin, and with her new seperate options there are so many possibilities. You can see the full gacha key here on her Flickr, but basically there are 12 combination skins available as commons, all with different make up options and then the rares are a clean skin base and lots of extras. If you manage to collect the full set including the rares, there are SO many ways to wear this skin. In this picture I’m wearing one of the combination commons, but added some eyebrows, a nose and under eye shadows from the rares. It’s really a lot of fun to play around with and try out different looks.

Also adore the new hairs from Tram, and while they don’t actually sell a purple hair, I just used a light shade (the dark salmon colour) and tinted it in world.

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!

Amberly Photo Contest - Entry 01 - Coral Lacey

If you’re a fan of Glam Affair you will no doubt have heard about the photo competition they are currently running for their popular Amberly skin line. There are some great prizes up for grabs which you can find with the rules and how to enter on the Glam Affair blog here. Amberly became my everyday skin as soon as it was released so I couldn’t resist the chance to enter, if nothing else it’s great practice for editing pics!

So while I was tearing my hair out about what to wear for the picture (not literally but can’t lie, I was stressed lol) Maitreya put out some amaaaazebulous (just made that up) pieces. This Dakota dress that I’m wearing also comes in just a top version as well as having lots of different shades and print options. I got a couple of different versions but since I’m loving classic black a lot lately, I went with that.

Amberly and Maitreya

To accessorize I added the new Isabella earrings which you can find by LaGyo at the March round of Collabor88 that started on Friday and the bracelet from Maxi Gossamer is there too! Both of these pieces are the usual high quality mesh and other matching accessories are available. I finished the look with the Zanzi clutch that House of Fox released for The Arcade Gacha event!

Only a few more days left for the Amberly competition so make sure you get in soon if you haven’t already and good luck to all who enter!

First of all, I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and a happy new year! I’ve been really busy over the holidays but I finally got around to my first post of 2013!

January has always been the worst month of the year for me, it seems like pay day can never come quick enough. After the huge blow out I generally have in December, January is my frugal time. After the first couple of weeks of sales, it’s also when you start to see new collections arriving in stores so you can begin to build up a spring wardrobe.

Now if you’re budget savvy like I try to be, then you’ll want to pick up some staple items. Staple items are pieces that you can mix and match to get completely different looks from, as well as getting your money’s worth and wearing them often. So for this post I decided to show you a staple item I picked up recently and 3 different ways to wear it.

Fanatik has quickly risen up my list of favourite stores with their releases over the past couple of months and this micro mini is no exception. I bought it at the Frost event a couple of weeks ago but only got around to blogging it now, however I think since I did buy it, I’ve barely taken it off. It’s available in several colours and with the variety of ways you can dress it up or down, fatpacking would not be a hard decision to make. It’s pretty simple in it’s style, but I love the quality of Fanatik’s mesh and textures and it also has a cute little zip detail on the back which gives it that extra bit of realism. The length was important to me too, I have some other mini’s that were just a tiny bit too long for what I wanted and the market is also flooded with ones that basically put your ass cheeks on display. I wanted something in between and this skirt was it.

I’m wearing a few other new(ish) items as well, that were released over Christmas and New Year. A couple of recent hair styles by Truth, the one with the scarf also includes a colour change hud so it’s great to match with many outfits. I have a thing for hair with attachments like that so this is an easy favourite.

The leather jacket from Erratic on the left is very nicely made and comes with both open and closed options. It’s not the kind of thing that is easy to layer with other mesh tops but most mesh jackets aren’t, which is why I still grab layer tops now and then.

House of Fox had a sale for a few days and I’m sorry that I didn’t get to blog this before because I am wearing several of their items that I picked up there while they were reduced. If you want information on sales and things make sure you check out Seraphim SL as they almost always have the latest info on what’s going on where. Anyway, House of Fox, yea, lots of good things.

Finally LaRoo released these fab Liberty boots for FaMESHed, that I’m wearing on the left a few days ago. Lots of colours available and they come in 3 different sizes, I usually wear a M in mesh clothes but the S in the boots fits me just fine. These are definitely my favourite of LaRoo’s releases and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Also I just wanted to point out there there was -very- little editing on these pictures compared to some of my others, apart from smoothing out some angular edges so everything I’m wearing should look the same in world, although always make sure to demo!

Hopefully I’ll be back to more of a regular blogging schedule now but I’m still visiting family and using a different PC so I’m not sure how fab my pics will be till I get home in a month or so. Anyway, I’m so looking forward to seeing what great items will be brought to us for the new season!

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.
