I memorized every line

.i memorized every line

Sooo much new stuff in this picture and so little time to write about it all!

First of all I’m wearing the Freja shorts from Pixicat, that were recently released for We ❤ RP. Of course, they're not just fit for RP purposes, but all sorts of wear! They also come with the option of embroidered flowers on the front, that you can turn on and off with the HUD. I adore the high waist and vintage style cut, he frill adds that little bit more of a feminine touch too.

I added the new roundneck top from Coco that's out at FaMESHed. What's great about this time is that it comes with cuffs and a collar as separate attachments. That means there's a ton of ways to wear it. I've been wearing it with just cuffs around the grid, but decided to keep it simple and plain for this shot. I layered it with the Bejewelled Cardigan from Fishy Strawberry also out at FaMESHed.

The hair is a classic updo, which I only found out about because Miss Foxtrot Plurked pictures of herself in it about 100 times. Luckily she did though coz I'm in love! You can pick this up by Catwa at the Fashion Fair.

There's a few new furniture pieces in this shot too. The piano and chair are both from Apple Fall's amazing gacha at The Chapter Four. The mirror which was the inspiration for this picture, is by Theosophy who are guests at Collabor88 this month. The romantic style curtains are also at C88, by Half Deer. And the last bit of new are the stacked tables from Cheeky Pea.

Now if you'll excuse me please, I have to go and spend an hour writing all these credits XD

Lost To The Wind

Lost To The Wind

I only have a couple of new things to show you in this picture, literally just two. Only my hair and socks are new items but honestly I don’t even care because I’m loving this outfit so hard today.

The hair is a long, flowing release from Tableau Vivant that will be available at The Arcade on Saturday. You may have seen some pictures on blogs and Flickr of it already, it comes with adorable soft plushies that can be worn on your head too, but it didn’t quite fit for this picture so I had to leave that at home 😦

My other new thing – the socks with suspenders. These are a mesh item that are going to be released tomorrow from JD at TDR Fusion. I believe they will be able to be worn separately as simple bare sock feet, but are also being made to fit with existing Just Design shoes and boots too, as I’m wearing in the pic.

So much going on over the next few days, I’m really excited and having trouble focusing with so much gorgeous new stuff being previewed, but these 2 items just inspired me to put the rest of the outfit together. Writing my wish list for Arcade today and I can’t waaaaait!

First Snow

First Snow

The Mens Dept started their December round today but us ladies weren’t left out in the cold! This gorgeous coat from K comes in both male and female sizes, with an array of colours to choose from. I did find the sizing on the womens to be a bit bigger than I’m used to (wearing an XXS here, usually I wear XS or S), although that does mean it’ll be easier for you to wear other mesh under it, but make sure you demo first. The telescope in the background, (which I didn’t get a good angle of, but Kalli did – see it here) is also available at The Mens Dept and is a unique prop and decor piece.

The boots from Just Design were out last weekend for The Rack event, but are now available in store. They are just perfect for winter and come with a ton of options including wearing the sock on or off and different colours, although the bi colour version of the boot itself that I’m wearing here is only available in the fatpack.

Finally, check out my fingerless gloves from A:S:S! These aren’t a new item but they’re one of the few glove applier layers available right now and I just love them for giving an outfit that extra something. I know I’m gonna be using them a lot this season.

Thank to Kalli for posing with me, if you want to see her version and get her credits, check out her blog!

Nothing Sweet About Me

Nothing Sweet About Me

I really don’t do the cute look very often, because frankly there are a ton of bloggers who do it way better than I can and it’s not something I’m usually comfortable in, but now and then there’s a release that just makes me wanna be cute and this adorable curly hair style from D!va is one of those.

So in a bid to be a bit cuter, I decided that of course I needed some pink. This new turtle neck from Teefy that you can find at Collabor88 was perfect for that and so was this pose with owl prop from Imeka. You can find the prop at The Seasons Story event which just opened.

I ended up cropping this picture a little weird, I normally would’ve cropped it smaller cutting off my legs more but I really wanted to show you guys these skyline tights! I admit I squeed a little when I saw the London skyline version and couldn’t wait to put them on, there’s also a New York and Paris version too. These are from Cannibelle which is just on the marketplace for the moment, along with some fab polka dotted tights as well. Perfect for this season and best of all they’re compatible with the SLink mesh feet!

Anyway, my regular style will resume tomorrow coz I’m really not this sweet at all.

I had a little lol moment to myself earlier today when I was working on this pic, just because it’s such a huge contrast compared to the one I made yesterday. And ok, it’s not my normal style but it’s fun to dress up when something like World Goth Fair hits the grid!

The skin I’m wearing is new Jalwa and can be found at the Goth Fair, along with the eyeshadow layer. It comes in the usual tones but also includes a vamp and goth shade (I’m wearing goth) which are just perfect for that dark look. Also includes hands and feet appliers for the SLink attachments!

The top I’m wearing is new from Baiastice and can be found at The Boutique. It comes in lots of different summery colours as well but of course I’m wearing black for this style. It’s a halter neck with ties at the back and I might have to blog it again at some point to show that off because it’s really very striking. The bangles I’m wearing I picked up at Teefy last week for Fifty Linden Friday, but they’re usually still in store now, just a bit higher in price.

The head piece is something I picked up by Glam Affair at The Dressing Room forever ago, seriously about a year ago, but just hadn’t had a chance to wear yet. I do this a lot, buy things when they’re cheap just in case I need it one day and low and behold, today was that day!

I’m still wearing Ikon’s new Vanity eyes, I absolutely love them! The variety in colours that Ikon provides is easily the best on the grid for me, everything from super realistic to fantasy so you’re never at a loss!

Oh and the hair, it’s an old style from Elikatira which I’ve worn a couple of over the last few weeks and lamented about how sad I was that they were closed, but I recently found out that actually the store is still open with all the hairs at the sale price! I have no idea why or how long that’ll be for but if you missed the sale then now is a great chance to grab those hairs!

Don’t Forget!

Don't Forget!

I don’t usually make a point of blogging sales or reminders about events ending, because frankly there are a lot of people who do this better than I can and there are so many events and things now that I find it kinda stressful trying to keep up! I’m much more of a LOTD, blog what I like, when I like kinda gal but I thought it would be remiss of me not to mention these.

First of all don’t forget to visit the Truth hair sale! Colour packs are reduced to 75Ls, fatpacks to 750Ls and some packs which will be retired are reduced even lower! I’ve pictured a few of my favourite recent styles above.

Also FaMESHed closes tomorrow while they set up for a new round that will open on the 1st of May, so if you haven’t been yet or forgot to pick up something before today is your last opportunity! I’m showing the Penny boots from LaRoo here which definitely have an edge to them. They’re available in lots of colours but best of all if you buy the fatpack you get all those colours in a HUD, so you’re not adding tons of extra items to your inventory!

Anyway, this was just a quickie reminder post, enjoy your hump day!

Amberly Photo Contest - Coral Lacey Entry 02

Just a quickie today, but this is my second entry to the Glam Affair Amberly contest so I thought I’d post it, coz it also features this fab new Marisol hair that Truth released today!

Also I wanted to give some credit to Miss Strawberry Singh whose recent tutorial on adding highlights and shadows with adjustment layers was a huge help for these pictures. If you haven’t seen it already I highly recommend it!

Berry also started the Seven SL Facts meme yesterday, so I thought I’d add that for the hell of it.

1. I struggle to keep my inventory neat. It’s still not organised and my accessories folder is the worst, which is why I tend to reuse the same ones for blog posts, coz they’re the only ones I can find!

2. I have had the same SL “mum” for 6 years. Once she talked me into making a kid avie on an alt, I lasted 2 days and she magically grew up overnight. Not getting in each others faces every day has been the key to our longevity!

3. I don’t like going to clubs in SL unless it’s night time in RL for me, it just doesn’t feel right!

4. I originally joined SL back in 2006 because my RL dad kept reading about SL entrepeuners in the media, (think Anshe Chung) so he told me to look into it. My first job was as a stripper – I don’t think that was what he had in mind. I lasted about 3 weeks.

5. Besides Coral who is my main, I have 16 other avies o.O is that a lot? I think most of them look like noobs still, about 3 are updated and the rest are probably wearing LAQ skins from 2008. I never use them, I think I just like making names up.

6. I RP’d in Gor for 5 years, I read 23 of the books for it over that time so that I had a good feel for the genre. I never tried any other RP in SL because I’m nervous around groups of people I don’t know and also some of the genres have such rich backgrounds I just don’t know if I have the patience to research it all again.

7. I’m very self concious so I hate talking in local chat with groups larger than maybe 4 or 5 people, especially if they are people I don’t know.

That’s it for today, don’t forget only a couple of days left to enter the Amberly comp!
