Ain’t No Sunshine

.ain't no sunshine

Alright, I know it’s been a while since I did a proper blog post. So here’s one right now! Did you know Lelutka released 3 mesh heads on Wednesday? If you’ve paid any kind of attention to blogs, Flickr or Plurk over the past week then of course you did! Well I had to give them a go to, so here I am sporting Leda.

Glam Affair worked alongside Lelutka as far as skin basics and also skin appliers, the other great news is that Maitreya was along for some of it too. So now the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and the Lelutka mesh heads will all match perfectly! I cannot be more thrilled that 3 of my most favourite brands on the grid are collaborating on these, and honestly, I’d love for them to work on even more together.

One of the best things about mesh heads (in my opinion) is the ability to use SL’s lighting and shadows all over the place, without the light hitting it at weird angles and highlighting unflattering parts (usually around the mouth area, especially on my shape where it’s quite pronounced). It can be a lot of bother in pictures, and usually I end up having to take a few different ones and layering them, just so that my face doesn’t look messed up. No need for that with a mesh head though. Just flawless light and shadows every time.

If you want to look picture perfect, I definitely recommend them. Make sure you have a good play with the demos and look out for more skin creators making appliers in the future!

After a lot of hard work I’m so happy to announce that Miss Chelsea is finally open! We have a small debut collection for you, with all items mix and matchable. If you follow my blog regularly then you’ll know I’m a huge fan of high waist skirts / pants, and am always thrilled when new ones are released, so of course we had to make a few of those. The high waist pencil skirt, zipped mini and panel leggings are all classic and staple designs that you can easily mix and match with other items. Including our new bralet top, and the cropped long sleeve top. Both of which easily styleable (apparently that’s not a word, but I’m determined to use it – same as matchable!) and able to be dressed up or down.

My personal favourite though is probably the naked shift dress. It’s sexy, scooped back and tight fit around the hips makes it perfect for a night out. It’s one of those classic items when, if you don’t know what else to wear, you can throw it on and instantly make an impact.

There is a group gift version of this dress available, and the group is free to join until May 31st. So make sure you take this opportunity to join now, keep updated with future releases and be able to grab more exclusive, free, group gifts!

Group Gift Pic

All of our items are rigged mesh, they come in 5 standard sizes (XXS – L) as well as a version for the Belleza Venus body and SLink Physique. We haven’t yet made special versions for the Maitreya Lara body, since the developers kit for that is not yet available – HOWEVER – our standard sizes will work with it, provided your body shape is a standard size of course.

Party Invite

Finally I’d like to invite you all to our launch party, which will be held at 6pm SLT tonight, at the new main store. Bring a friend, come and listen to some music, dance and celebrate with us! Hope to see you there.

Miss C Promo 2

It’s been a long time coming but I’m excited to finally announce the launch of a new fashion brand that I’ve been collaborating on with Dave Freeman of JD. I did make an announcement on Flickr a couple of days ago, but with everything finalised I decided to make it more formal with a post!

This is something that we’ve been working on in our spare time for several months and even with bumps and RL getting in the way, we’ve managed to pull it together. We’re holding a blogger preview for members of the SL Blogger Support group in world, that will be from 9am SLT today, for 24 hours. The official opening is 10am SLT on Friday 3rd April. We’re also having an open invite launch party on Friday at 6pm SLT, so feel free to join us!

I’m sure you’ll hear more from me tomorrow, when we officially open, and I hope to see you all there!

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!

I have another casual look of the day with things from FaMESHed to finish the week off for you, as well as it being a little photographic therapy for me!

This great jacket is from ::K:: who are a guest for October’s round, it’s also made in both male and female versions which is great for the men since they don’t typically get a lot aimed at them. I like it a lot, particularly the up turned collar. It’s fitted mesh and that that’s my only one issue with it. Honestly, I’m not a great fan of fitted mesh all the time. Perhaps it’s the style of the jacket that it’s meant to look bulky but I typically wear something that is an XS and yet I felt like this was more of a M. On the plus side that does mean it’s easier to wear mesh pants under it. Even though I decided not to!

Another new item are these great Penny boots from JD – also a participating guest at FaMESHed. They come with the mesh socks included, which you can show/hide and texture change via the HUD. There is also a Belleza Venus and The Mesh Project version included, so you can wear them with your mesh bodies! They’re a perfect staple for the cooler seasons approaching, and I highly recommend them.

Hope everyone had a good week, here’s to the weekend!

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!

Quick LOTD today, featuring the new Petra outfit from Baiastice that you can pick up at Rhapsody! Just in case you didn’t know, Rhapsody opened on the weekend and is a music themed event with lots of different genres. There’s definitely something for everyone.

I played a lot with colours in this picture, which is not something I tend to do as you probably know by now that I favour neutral tones in my wardrobe. I even made the shorts a brighter yellow than how they actually appear in world, just because that is the look I wanted for this pic. So make sure you check them out in world and demo before you buy!

Gambling's For Fools

I had so much planned to blog this week, since Summerfest opened last weekend I’ve been parading round the grid in no end of different swimwear and beach clothes. But I somehow managed to hurt myself in RL, which has meant that sitting at my PC for any real length of time has been next to impossible this week. It doesn’t seem to be getting much better either, but I realllllly wanted to blog!

Since I’m a little late on the beach stuff I thought I’d go ahead and show you this amazing dress from Pixicat, that’s going to be out at Rhapsody tomorrow. Rhapsody is a music themed event, with each store allocated a genre. Metal, disco, swing, country ETC ETC. You can find this dress in the metal section, along with the armbands and a matching spiked tote bag. One thing that I love about this dress, and did with the last dress Pixicat released too, is that it comes with a HUD so you can change texture options, you’re not just limited to one colour. Saves space in your inventory and makes it great value for money!

Rhapsody opens at 12pm (midday) SLT on the 28th, not midnight, so no need to stay up late but make sure you visit coz it’s gonna be one hell of an event!

I debated about posting this picture for a little while, since it was never taken for the purpose of blogging. But I decided since it’s the holidays that I’d share something with you guys that was a little bit more personal.

This photo isn’t about new releases, the styling, or even the decor. It’s just myself and 3 people who mean the world to me in SL, making a little family that I couldn’t be without.

Happy Monday! I’m full of beans and excited today for a couple of reasons.

First, Seven Emporium released individual marquee letters yesterday for The Garden event, similar to ones that they’d used in signs before, but now with the individual ones you can spell out whatever you want! I’m sure there’ll be lots of creative uses for these on Flickr and blogs over the next few days and I’m excited to see them.

Also, Deadwool have decided to branch out into more female clothes. I’ve blogged a couple of their items before, some mens jeans and unisex boots, and always thought the quality was amazing. So to see them now including more womens items like this amazing Corto coat, really makes me look forward to every new release. The coat is available in a few different colour options and you also get the choice of wearing it with or without the top underneath too. The texturing and mesh work is fantastic quality, with the style being something you can easily dress up into a sexy outfit, or dress down for a more casual look. Either way it’s a great addition for the cooler seasons.
