I have a street style LOTD for you guys today, with some of my favourite new things. You must have heard of the Shiny Shabby event, which opens today at 12pm SLT. It’s brought to you by Neva Crystall and if you’ve ever loved the “lived in contemporary” style of her pictures, you will love this event.

The hair I’m wearing is new from Entwined and will be available at Shiny Shabby. Love the messy bunches style, it gives a relaxed, cute feel to any look, without making you look like a 12 year old. Since it’s still February and a bit chilly in most places, I added a flat cap from Deadwool, which finished off the outfit perfectly.

The top and oversized cardi I’m wearing is from ::K:: and is another item out at Shiny Shabby. It’s fitted mesh so comes in one size, but with both male and female shapes available. You can also choose whether to just wear the cardi by istelf, or with the inner top like I have here. I love natural coloured knits during winter, they’re so versatile and comfy.

Finally I’m wearing these new shoes from JD which will be out in a few days at Uber. I know it’s a bit early to blog them but I adore them so much, I haven’t taken them off in days and well, they were just too perfect for this outfit! I’m wearing the SLink feet version so that I could wear some applier socks and stop my toes getting frostbite.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and make sure you pay a visit to Shiny Shabby, I know I will be!

Today I worked on a double portrait picture with my friend Kalli (big thank you to her for posing with me), to show you guys the recently released Sophie skin from Glam Affair. You can find this pretty face at The Chapter Four, available in 2 tones (Asia and Jamaica) and 4 different make ups!

We’re also wearing the new Sheena hair from Lelutka which is a group FREEBIE, as part of the introduction to their updates. I don’t know about you but I practically peed myself with excitement when I saw Minnu Palen’s update on Flickr a few days ago. As a long time fan of the brand, big changes like this are always exciting. They have now released 4 new styles, including Sheena as a freebie. The new HUD system is very simple to use, and I was sooo happy to see some awesome roots versions now available. Make sure you go check them out!

Bit of a formal look for you today, with the new Cleo top and Nayra skirt from Baiastice at C88. Of course they’re seperates so great items to mix and match with other pieces to create many different looks. The skirt in particular is an awesome addition to your formal closet.

Also new is the violin set from Bauhaus Movement, who were Baiastice’ prom date for February’s Collab. The violin itself comes in several different colours, as well as being animated with 6 different poses. I actually edited one of the poses a bit for for this pic, using Animare. It’s great to see the talented LouLou Teichmann branching out into mesh, her perspective as a blogger/photographer is really helpful, since she knows what we need!

The hair I’m wearing is from Blues at The Fantasy Gacha carnival, and if you read my blog regularly you’ll know I’m a huge fan of any styles that are messy and wavy so this is an easy new favourite of mine. Finally I added the pearl collar necklace from Maxi Gossamer at FaMESHed for a touch of vintage glamour.

Sooo much new stuff in this picture and so little time to write about it all!

First of all I’m wearing the Freja shorts from Pixicat, that were recently released for We ❤ RP. Of course, they're not just fit for RP purposes, but all sorts of wear! They also come with the option of embroidered flowers on the front, that you can turn on and off with the HUD. I adore the high waist and vintage style cut, he frill adds that little bit more of a feminine touch too.

I added the new roundneck top from Coco that's out at FaMESHed. What's great about this time is that it comes with cuffs and a collar as separate attachments. That means there's a ton of ways to wear it. I've been wearing it with just cuffs around the grid, but decided to keep it simple and plain for this shot. I layered it with the Bejewelled Cardigan from Fishy Strawberry also out at FaMESHed.

The hair is a classic updo, which I only found out about because Miss Foxtrot Plurked pictures of herself in it about 100 times. Luckily she did though coz I'm in love! You can pick this up by Catwa at the Fashion Fair.

There's a few new furniture pieces in this shot too. The piano and chair are both from Apple Fall's amazing gacha at The Chapter Four. The mirror which was the inspiration for this picture, is by Theosophy who are guests at Collabor88 this month. The romantic style curtains are also at C88, by Half Deer. And the last bit of new are the stacked tables from Cheeky Pea.

Now if you'll excuse me please, I have to go and spend an hour writing all these credits XD

If you’re a fan of Sons of Anarchy, you’ll love the CrimSon Saints set that Kalopsia have put out at The Mens Dept. There’s a whole bunch of decor, including the bike in this picture. On top of that, these leather vests are available to buy too, both male and female! They come with a HUD for the patches so you can change names and titles if you’re you know, that serious about an SL motorbike gang, or just up for some role play!

I’m also wearing a recent tattoo from Space Mermaid which is discounted at The Thrift Shop and a new release hair from Entwined that you can pick up at their main store.

Thank you to the always gorge Oakley Foxtrot for posing with me, you can find her amazing new mohawk from Soonsiki, out at The Mens Dept.

Someone told me there’s a girl out there

I’m back with another portrait after a few days off. I’ve been enjoying trying out different things with my pictures lately, so this is more of an editorial style shot. I have zero idea of whether anyone is gonna like this picture, since I think it’s vastly different to anything I’ve done before. But I like it and that’s what counts right? So I’m sort of sorry/not sorry about that!

Anyway, I’m wearing a special version of Belleza’s Mae skin that I blogged recently, this one you can find at the With Love event, with several new, pretty and pink make ups, perfect for Valentines day.

I’ve added a few new things from LaGyo too. The flowers around me are a mixture of headpieces and accessories she’s made recently. The two brighter pink ones are out at With Love, and the more pastel coloured flowers were add ons for last month’s C88. The hat, pearl earrings and necklace can all be found from LaGyo too, at February’s Collabor88 which recently began. LaGyo is one of those stores that always makes unique and interesting accessories. Great for standing out a little bit in pictures.

Finally I’m wearing a new hair from Little Bones that you can grab at FaMESHed. I love her tucked behind the ear styles lately, gonna need more of them!

For someone who confessed yesterday to being a proper pixel prude, I’ve realised that this week I haven’t really blogged a whole deal of clothes. I must just be in some kind of mood the last few days!

So today I just really wanted to show you this Celeste skin from Belleza, out now at Uber. There’s a ton of really unique make up options available to fit the celestial theme, but I went with 01, which is something more day to day for this shot. I always love the noses on Belleza skins, it’s one my favourite features. Miss Shyla’s work on Celeste is nothing but the usual high standard and I look forward to being able to take more shots in her.

I added the unique, Bubble Necklace from Glam Affair, also out at Uber, just so I wasn’t totally naked. It made all the difference. It’s a gorgeous statement piece, would look great with a LBD, which is exactly how I plan to wear it! When I’m clothed of course.

Carry me home tonight

.carry me home tonight

I know this coat from Aphorism has been all over Flickr for a couple of weeks, since it was released at The Season’s Story, but I swear I had been planning to do this picture before today! The problem I had was needing a new lingerie set to go with it. That’s one thing I absolutely lack in SL.

Any of my friends will attest to the fact that I’m one of the biggest prudes they know when it comes to taking my pixel clothes off, so I just really don’t ever find the need for tons of undies. Unless an alpha is failing me of course! Anyway, I bumped into someone a couple of days ago who told me about this new set from Elymode. It comes with all your applier layers (I’m wearing the Maitreya Lara version) as well as standard system layers, and best of all? It’s FREE. Ok, it’s free to group members but the group is only 125L to join, which you’d probably pay more for the set anyway. It’s a pretty sweet and sexy set, perfect for mesh body lovers.

Necklace and hair from Random Matter and Little Bones respectively, both new releases for Uber were perfect additions to this look. As well as the Mon Dieu tattoo from Space Mermaid, which now has a bunch of tattoos on appliers for the Maitreya body.

I’m feelin’ electric tonight

.i'm feelin' electric tonight

Uber started a new round this weekend, with it’s Celestial theme. So many great items this round, I picked out a couple for this post.

First of all this hair from Little Bones, I can’t get enough of. Seriously in love. Loose waves and the tucked behind the ear look are a great combo. I also love the partings that Nova has added to a lot of her hairs lately, such a small thing but makes a big difference in styles. I’d really love to see more of these waves on the grid too!

I think this headpiece and necklace set is one of my favourite releases from Zibska in a while. You can’t see the necklace awesomely coz I had to wear this hair, but I like the way some of the gems are just trickling out from beneath it. Overall it’s a super pretty piece that will class up an outfit in an instant.

Finally I’m wearing the new Ellie skin from Glam Affair. There are always debates and comments about Glam Affair skins looking the same, I know that because I wear them regularly there’s a good chance I’ll be seen as just a biased fan girl, but it’s not the case. If you don’t try on every Glam Affair skin on your own shape, then honestly I don’t know how you can make that call. Because as someone who DOES do that, I can tell you the skins are vastly different. Particularly the most recent releases. I’ve been wearing Sia II since it was released a couple of months ago, but I couldn’t resist Ellie. When I tried it on I was honestly blown away at how different I looked. I’ve included an unedited, raw shot for a side by side comparison, before I adjusted my shape to fit Ellie better for the picture above.

GA Comparison

I had to change my eye shape, make them wider and yet smaller at the same time. My eyes are usually pretty narrow anyway, but with Ellie it didn’t look right. I adore the nose and lips on this skin, but I’m so used to seeing myself in Sia II now, that I don’t know if I can make such a big change for every day use. Still, I think I look cute, even if I do say so myself.

Feet don’t fail me now

Have a quick LOTD for you all today, and a reminder that you only have a few days to pick items up at FaMESHed and Uber! Uber is changing it’s start date as of this month, so the new opening day will be the 25th of every month. That means you only have 2 more days before the current round is closed, so make sure you visit and pick up Reign’s fabulous Avanti bag.

I’m wearing the recent Coco leather jacket that’s still out for a few days at FaMESHed, as well as the Zoe skirt from Emery. Both of these stores are easily in my top 5 for clothes in SL, based on quality and style, so pairing them together is always an easy decision.

I’m also wearing JD’s Sky stilettos from January’s FaMESHed as well, which, yes, I know I blogged last week. BUT, like I said then, they’re really a staple item. One of the great things about JD shoes is that you can always mix and match the mesh socks they make with them too.

Finally I’m wearing the new scarf from Pixicat out at The Seasons Story. I’m a firm believer than you can never have too many scarves, so this is a great addition to my ever growing collection.
