Got a quick little look for you guys with a couple of new and recent items. This amazing fringe jacket is from Coco at April’s round of FaMESHed, there’s just a few days left to grab it there!

I’m also wearing a new hair from Entwined that is out now at Shiny Shabby. I love it’s casual wave, that creates an understated, sexy look.

I finished it all off with LaGyo’s necklace that’s out at C88’s Pretty in Punk round, and some recent release aviator glasses from Redgrave.

Definitely a short and sweet post today, hope you like it!

Shiny Shabby opens today with a new round and I’m super excited to share this dress with you guys, from my new brand Miss Chelsea. This will be our first event so I’m nervous and thrilled all at the same time. We decided to go with a vintage style, lace sun dress. Perfect for spring, easy to pair with sandals and a light cardigan, or tattoos and boots for an edgier look. It comes in standard sizes, and includes versions for the Belleza Venus, SLink Physique and we’ve made a version for the Maitreya Lara. The Maitreya version is not official, since the developers kit for that is not yet available, but all 3 of us in this picture are wearing it and it fits nicely. But please try the demo.

Also I simply cannot be more in love with this hair from Lamb. It’s for the TAG gacha, and even though I personally found this a huge pain to have to get the HUD, activate it, etc etc, when I was in a rush to grab the hair and take a picture, it was worth it, because it couldn’t have completed this look better.

Finally I completed the little scene with a new tyre swing from Cheeky Pea at Kustom9, a great spring decor item!

Glam Affair Katra Blogger Contest

Just another quickie portrait picture for you today. I missed the chance to blog this skin when it was released last month for Skin Fair, but you can now find the gorgeous Katra in the Glam Affair main store. There are some seriously amazing make up options with this skin, so if you didn’t try it out before now’s your chance!

I’ve added these new Sarrah earrings from Random Matter, which are out at Uber. I love big earrings so these are an easy case of win to me!

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!

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!

In a world full of people

.in a world full of people

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!
