Rode the wind off a beaten track

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

So I took this picture last week with my friends Kalli and LouLou, it’s always great to work with these girls and they’re both such big inspirations to me. Kalli has already posted her version of this pic and I think LouLou will be soon too, so click on over to their Flickrs up there and check them out!

We styled a big mix up of stuff that’s available at Collabor88 which opened last week. The theme was “To The Lighthouse” but instead of going for a traditional, nautical theme, we went a little more urban pirate.

I love the tiny daisy dukes from Baiastice, there are bright colours as well as denims to grab so they’re perfect for summer. The tie dyed tanks from Maitreya that you can also pick up from C88 were an easy match. Slightly longer tops and short shorts are always a great combo.

LaGyo released 2 great sets of accessories for this round, for pirates and sailors. Obviously we went for the pirate look with the black hats and co-ordinating necklaces. Also check out Yummy’s bargain Aviators, they’re a must have.

Make sure you pay C88 a visit to stock up for summer if you haven’t already!

Beach To Bar

Beach To Bar

Sooo much new stuff on the grid the past couple of days, and a whole lot more of it to come with C88 due to open on the 8th! I feel absolutely spoilt for choice about what to show you guys, but let me start off with a few bits here!

I love this outfit that I put together, it’s perfect casual fashion that you could wear on the beach with a pair of flip flops, then just change into a pair of heels, add some accessories and you’re good to go for a night out.

Can’t get enough of this hair from Little Bones, who are fast becoming one of my favourite brands. I love the root and ombre options they give, as well as the modern styles and a ton of messy ones too which will always be my favourite. This West Coast do is available at the latest round of The Chapter Four.

The top I’m wearing is also out at The Chapter Four by Deadwool. There’s a few different patterns and prints available and of course any kind of t shirt is a staple inventory item. The cut and crop on this one makes it just a little different from a lot of others out there already.

The resort pants are a new release that came out yesterday at The Mens Dept by ::K:: there are a male and female version available as well as a variety of bright, bold colours. I went for the simple black and white coz that meant I could pretty much mix and match them with whatever other colours I wanted. Also The Mens Dept has a new location, be sure to update your LMs!

The boots are obviously the most recent release from Maitreya, while the necklace and clutch bag are from LaGyo at Aprils round of C88, I believe today is the last day to grab those before the round changes, although don’t worry if you miss out, coz I’m sure they’ll be for sale in the main store after!

I took this picture at a new sim, Santaurio, by Jac Mornington, who created the popular Baja Norte beach sim last year. Santaurio is only open to members, and to join the group costs 300L. Group members get rez rights and I definitely think it’s well worth the small fee if you’re a photographer or blogger, coz being able to rez your own stuff can make a huge difference to any picture.
