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.

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!

I have a LOTD for you guys which I just can’t get enough of. This hair from Clawtooth…in my eyes, it couldn’t be more perfect. The tousled locks and the scarf that wraps around them makes it super appealing to me and great for pictures. I’m also beyond excited with the updates to Clawtooths blondes! I admit before that I never full felt like they sat right on me, but with the “Bodacious blondes” pack now available, I know I’ll be buying more and more.

Also, yay for new fur jackets! I am so happy that Birdy released one at C88 this round and I don’t mind admitting that I hope other designers follow suit soon too. I’m not one of those people who thinks I only need one of something and like to see a variety of similiar items even. Same applies for things like jeans! I’ll never have enough, which is why it was great to see these new ones released from Lumiere at FaMESHed last week.

My turtle neck top is a recent release from the new brand Seul, out now for this months round of Uber. It’s long in the back and cropped in the front, making for a stylish and unique look. To finish this whole outfit off, I added the new, adorable Mina heels from Reign, and the Tassel bag from Zenith, out at Anybody and The Arcade respectively.

Snow Day

C88 opened it’s doors today to a fabulously cosy round for December. I’m wearing the new, oversized cape from Pixicat that you can pick up there, along with it’s fur hood. This matched perfectly with the Snowdrift hair from Tableau Vivant, which has got to be one of this months must have hair purchases. It’s a great style to wear cosied up with a sweater and jeans, or dressed up for a party night. Either way you’ll get plenty of use out of it!

LaGyo released two gorgeous collections for C88 as well, this adorable bow headband and the faux fur clutch are part of them. There are a ton of other great little accessories too, all to help you get in that festive spirit!

I’m also wearing the new skinny, ripped jeans from Emery and the Navajaro fringe boots from JD, both of which are winter staples that you can grab at this month’s round of FaMESHed.

A new beginning, a reason for living.

A new beginning, a reason for living.

Pulled on a comfy sweater today so I could get cosy in this pic with a friend! This oversized sweater is from Zenith at this month’s round of FaMESHed. I love the cut off shoulders, it makes it that little bit different from others that are around right now. I’ve actually been wearing it for a few days just with a pair of ugg boots and no pants, although leggings, jeans or some knit stockings would be great to pair with it, but I felt like being bare!

Also, I just need to gush over this hair from Tableau Vivant a little bit coz I’m sooooo in love. It’s out now at C88 and hasn’t left my head since I got it! Messy, wavy curls are always yummy and we need more on the grid!

Other new things include the jacket Trip is wearing, from Amitomo at TMD, which comes in both male and female versions. The rustic, picket bed is a recent release from Cheeky Pea at N21.

We’re using a new couples pose from oOo Studio that you can pick up now at The Mens Dept.

I Wanna Be Your Friday Night

I wanna be your Friday night

So who hasn’t seen these jackets from Foxes at N21 and gone absolutely crazy over them? I think I saw the WIPs and ads all over plurk for at least a week before they were released! At 450L it’s not a cheap buy but the quality of the mesh, textures and options you get, make it well worth that. You can wear it with or without the hood, with or without the fur collar. All the fur is colour changeable on a HUD and let’s not forget that it comes with a T-shirt inner version too, which is also texture change. You have endless options to play with, so it’s really worth the money.

We paired it with this short, jersey dress from Maitreya, which isn’t new but is one of my faves. I confess to wearing it far more often than I probably should. It’s just one of those really easy, classic things to throw on when you don’t have time, or can’t think of anything else to wear.

The shoes both myself and Harper are wearing, are a sneak peak of what will come from JD at Uber next week. The socks that Harper’s wearing are included with the shoes and the shoes are made to fit all manner of mesh feet/bodies.

Hope everyone has a great Friday night and a good weekend, I know I will.

If I Lose Myself Tonight

If I lose myself tonight

Just a quickie post today but I wanted to show you this new Mae skin from Belleza that’s out at the Vintage and Cool Fair. This is currently my new favourite skin from them and I’m sure I’ll take some more pictures using it. Usually I’m into thicker eyebrows but I love the vintage feel from these thin ones, they really suit the structure of the skin. The lips and nose are absolutely perfect and the choice of make ups it comes with are all ones I’d wear regularly. Definitely worth a demo!

Also recent is this statement necklace from LaGyo, which you can find at this month’s round of C88, along with lots of matching items! Finally this amazing colour tattoo from Elska is another new release, that you can pick up at the Body Mod Expo.
