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.

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.

Lately I’ve been, I’ve been losing sleep.

I love this Tori dress from Baiastice, the silky texture and the lace, is it a dress, is it lingerie? Well I decided to dress it down by throwing on an over sized cardigan and boots.

The cardigan you can find from Eaters Coma at The Season’s Story, there are 4 colours available and each come with a cropped, turtle neck sweater beneath, that is colour changeable via a HUD. It’s a pretty good deal! I bought 2 colours and honestly, I might go back for the other 2 coz over sized cardi’s are one of my most favourite things and I know I’ll wear them to death. Not only that but it’s another of those cool, hands in pockets dealios. Great for pics!

I’m wearing the Punisher boots from Candydoll, which you can also find at The Season’s Story, in 3 exclusive colours/textures. I added the Lucy socks from JD too, these actually came from the Lucy shoes but you can wear them with almost every type of boot too, since they have an alpha selector on the HUD.

Finally from The Season’s Story is this messy hair style from Moon. It’s my new favourite. Not taking it off.

Feed Your Faith

Feed your faith

I’m sure most people reading this are pretty aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, this year in particular it feels like everyone is jumping on the pink bandwagon and while some of it hasn’t been so positive, raising awareness is never a bad thing.

Up until a couple weeks ago, breast cancer seemed like one of those terrible things that happens to other people, but not to anyone I knew and loved. Every time I’d hear about someone who knew someone who had it, I’d think how lucky my family was that we were all healthy and that nothing like that would happen to us. Right? Wrong. Two weeks ago, I received a phone call from my mother, telling me she had some bad news. She has breast cancer. At that moment, breast cancer became a very real, terrible thing – and it wasn’t just happening to a friend of a friends cousin, it was and is happening to my mum. We don’t know for sure how serious it is yet, but my mum is a nurse and pretty fastidious about checking these things, so we’re just hoping that it’s been caught early. In stage 1 there is pretty much a 100% survival rate, stage 2 – 93%. Those are good odds. If you catch it early.

I don’t really want to make this a huge post about cancer, there’s plenty of information online. I’ve pretty much convinced myself that my mum is going to be fine, since there’s nothing else I can think until we find out more next week.

I just wanted to say, ladies, check yo’ self and do it often.

I’ll Love You For A Thousand More

I'll love you for a thousand more

I’m realllllly feeling all the warm autumn colours the past few weeks, if my pictures weren’t enough of an indication. After spring, autumn is by far my favourite season. I guess I just like those transition months. It’s been a while since I took a picture with my bff4life, Harper, so I asked her yesterday if she was up for it, and of course she said yes, how could she turn me down!

Pretty sure I’ve written before about how much I love this girl, but I’ll say it again. All the sweet, cute, mushy, cheesy things you can imagine – that’s how I feel about her. I’m so thankful to have her as part of my life.

Anyway, onto the stuff in the picture, which I know is what you’re really reading for! Pixicat released these sweaters as part of the small Ferosh collection a couple of weeks ago, but today she’s put 2 colours – the orange that I’m wearing and a yellow – out for FLF. Don’t miss out on the chance to grab such a great bargain and pay a visit!

We’re both wearing hair that you can find at the Mystic Realms Faire, mine is by Tableau Vivant and Harper’s is from Exile. I love the flow of both of them and that they are long with hairs without being BIG, if that makes sense? Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit of volume, but not always into big cartoony or princessy looking hair. The loose curls and waves on the Tableau Vivant are just perfect, I do love curly hair in SL, probably coz my RL curly hair will never look that perfect!

The shoes on me are from Reign and are out at The Season’s Story. I love casual flats like these, they’re so easy to wear day to day. I expect if you see me around the grid just in the day time, that I’d be wearing these. A perfect inventory staple.

Cheeky Pea have released a few items lately, this autumn cosy is out at The Mens Dept and comes in several different prints, as well as both an adult and PG version. There’s also a set from them at The Season’s Story, which I used a few decor pieces from like the tall pumpkin stacks, acorn lights and the lamp ladder.

Anyway, that’s me off for the day. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and I’ll be back soon!

I have another fall fashion look for you today. With these new, original mesh, tweed rompers from Drift that’ll be available tomorrow at TLC’s Boutique. It also comes in cotton and I believe there may be some print versions on the way too. They’re super easy to dress up or down, with a selection of perfect autumn colours to choose from. Definitely a staple item for this season.

Before you think it, yes I know I take a lot of pics at Neva Sky Villi, but it’s just perfect ok?? I seriously love, love this sim and the fact that it gets redecorated for every sim makes it the perfect location for pics, over and over and over again.

Thank you to Kalli for letting me snap this shot during her shoot, I’ll post a link to her version soon!

You Think I’m Pretty, Without Any Makeup On

You Think I'm Pretty, Without Any Makeup On

With so much going on this week, I’ve got yet another LOTD post for you. This time I’m wearing a mix of releases from The Seasons Story, which opened today and a couple more Collaborate pieces.

This adorable dress is from Pixicat at The Seasons Story, out today. I cannot tell you enough how impressed I am with this brand. They’re still relatively new and the collection of items is small – yet growing, but each and every item they’ve put out has been different and unique compared to anything else on the grid. On top of that the quality of mesh and texturing is second to none. If you’re looking for something that’s not “just another dress” then make sure you visit Pixicat to snatch this up, both patterns and solid colours are available.

I’m wearing a new hair style from Little Bones that’s out at The Secret Affair in a few days, and I don’t think it’s possible to describe how loud my inner squeal was when I saw the pearl headband that’s attached to the curly tresses. I tried to convince a friend a while back that we needed a pearl headband in SL, I have a couple in RL which get a lot of use, but we decided it would be better if it came attached to a hair. Nova must’ve read my mind coz that’s exactly what she’s released, even with a long ribbon that trails over your back. There’s not enough curly hair in SL in my opinion, so this is a welcome addition.

I paired both of these with the amazing safari necklace from Ison, out at C88 and the Lara sandals from Pure Poison that you can pick up there too. Pure Poison has released a pretty big line of SLink compatible sandals this season, with the Lara being one of three great new releases she launched at Collab. To finish the look off I added the fringed bag from Zenith, also at C88.

This week is an expensive one for most of us virtual fashionistas, what with 2 big events opening and Hair Fair right around the corner, I hope you saved your pennies! A quick reminder about Hair Fair, you can join the Hair Fair demo group in world, where creators will send all demos, allowing you to try them on in the comfort of a lag free environment at home, before you go to get your shop on. Be sure to join!
