Miss Chelsea – Now open!

Miss Chelsea Promo

 

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.

New fashion brand – Miss Chelsea!

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!

The Best Kind Of Ship

The Best Kind of Ship

My friend Harper and I had been talking for a while about taking another pic together soon, so when I saw that Berry’s weekly meme had an option to blog about your best friend in SL I decided now was the time. I’m not sure this picture was quite what we had in mind but since it’s Halloween month, it happened.

Dark pictures are always hard for me, I see people on Flickr who are amazing at producing them time and again but I struggle and it’s really hard for me not to just turn the brightness up, because the lighting for them is so important, and it’s hard not to get things looking patchy or too grey. This is probably the best one I think I’ve done so far, but I’m still not totally happy with it so I guess I’ll keep practicing!

Anyway, please allow me to bore you a little while I sing the praises of my best friend before I get to the credits.

We met almost 2 years ago now through a mutual friend, and although we occasionally hung out in groups or ran into each other in stores it took about 4 months before we even added each other on our friends lists. I know Harper thought I was a total bitch, because she’s the type of person who is friendly and chatty with just about everyone, whereas it’s harder for me to make friends as I’m typically shy and awkward. Even though she thought I hated her (I didn’t, that was just my awkwardness) she never failed to be nice and say hi. We talked a little more every time and eventually after a few months and when we finally added each other, our chats became longer and more frequent up until the point where now we talk for hours every day, either in world or on Skype. Even when I’m not around on weekends we’re constantly sending private plurks back and forth, keeping each other up to date on things.

Like most best friends Harper’s been there for me through a lot, she was a total rock and shoulder for me to cry on when I felt like things were falling apart last year, I honestly don’t know what I’d have done if she hadn’t taken me out to adult sims to hang out until we end up crying with laughter on Skype. She supports me however bad my decisions may be but is always there to give great advice before I go through with them. On top of all that she is one of the funniest, most loyal, kindest people I know and always puts others before herself (even if I tell her not to!). Anyone would be lucky to have her in their life and I count myself to be extremely so. An ocean may separate us but I know that even if one of us were to leave SL our friendship wouldn’t even falter.

And that’s that! Our credits are basically the same except that Harper’s wearing a different make up on the skin but I’ll add a link to her post once she’s finished her version of the pic so you can take a look see!

LaGyo and Glam Affair @ C88

I wanted to do this quick post before I went to bed, since it seems I’m on a roll today. I’m having a lot of fun playing around and learning new things in Photoshop lately so I thought I’d share.

I’m wearing the new Perla sweater from Glam Affair that is available at Collabor88, as well as the new Mescal jewellery from LaGyo that you can pick up there. The sweater is available in several different colours to choose from and the necklace and earrings you can purchase in both gold and silver, which then has a texture change option for the colour of the stones.

The hair I’m wearing is new from Dura. I always recommend Dura to men for hair, and while I’ve seen several cute styles for women here and there, none of them ever looked quite right on me. I was surfing through Flickr earlier today and stumbled on this one, I thought it looked cute so I’d give it a demo and whaddaya know, I fell in love with it! So I quickly purchased my first ever Dura hair. The textures remind me of D!va and like that flyaway messy look so I’m glad I finally managed to find one that suits me. I also tried out the mesh eyeliner from Glam Affair for the first time and I loooooove it!

Yesterday I posted a new profile picture on Flickr, since I’d gotten new eyes and seem to be wearing this Glam Affair Roza skin more and more often, but I didn’t post any credits. Not intentionally but just because I only put it on Flickr and not here and it just didn’t cross my mind. So here’s another close up and all credits will be included this time!

Ni night all, here’s to the upcoming weekend!
