Well I finally got round to blogging Chic2 today and I’m so glad I waited a couple of days because Maitreya had some awesome new releases aswell which happen to go perfectly with the outfit I’d picked up at Chic2!
If you haven’t been to Chic2 or haven’t heard of it yet (which I’m sure you have, but just in case!) it’s an event hosted by Chic Management to celebrate their 2nd birthday! Chic management is run by Keira Seerose and brings such events as Culture Shock and Vintage Fair to Second Life. They invited over 100 designers to the birthday event, all bringing an exclusive new item and it’s really a fantastic array of newness.
I love this mesh jumpsuit/rompa that I picked up at Chic2 by Ricelli. It comes in a whole host of colours and patterns, with lots of bright summer colours. Rompas have been a popular release over the last couple of weeks but this has got to be my favourite, I really adore the belt detailing on it.
Now on to Maitreya! I went and bought every one of their new releases without even demo-ing coz uh, it’s Maitreya and if you read my last blog you’d know I’m a total sucker for them. So to add to this outfit I wore the new mesh Siobhan hair, it comes with the hat which has a texture change HUD so you can mix and match it for most outfits and really it’s gorgeous for summer. I don’t usually wear a lot of hats because I’m too lazy to edit hair to fit under them, so this is also perfect for lazy people like me
Also new is this mesh shopper bag which again comes in a wide variety of colours and a couple of different patterns too. Again I don’t usually buy too many bags in SL, but I couldn’t pass this one up. I will point out that in my picture above, I had a huge fail where part of the bag got pixelated thanks to the wonders of SL and my stupid computer. I didn’t notice until I was editing and I really loved the pic apart from that, so I fixed it as best I could (yea, really need to work on those Photoshop skills don’t I??) but the texture does not look pixelated like that in world, believe me it’s gorgeous! So here’s another picture without the pixelatedness.
***UPDATED*** I received a message from Onyx LeShelle of Maitreya where she said that the pixelated part of the bag was indeed a fault on the texture that only showed up on midday light settings (which is why I didn’t notice it either when I checked it after I saw the picture as I was using different windlight by then) and she has now updated them and sent them out to everyone who had already purchased. I personally have never experienced a fault with a Maitreya product before, but this was resolved very quickly and I have to give a big thumbs up for their customer service.
Looking forward to blogging their other new items and it’s almost time for C88, yaaaaaay!
