All those fairy tales are full of it

All those fairy tales are full of it

Quick LOTD for you this evening! Uber is open for just a few short more hours which is where you’ll find this amazing over sized coat from Ryvolter. It comes in some different coloured check versions, as well as the hounds tooth that I’m wearing, which is a trending pattern for this season.

I’m wearing a new hair from Tableau Vivant that you can find at Creation JP and I have to say that I am loving the beehive styles lately so this ponytail version is a welcome addition to my horde.

These shoes from Just Design aren’t new, but I thought it would be worth pointing out that they have now been adapted so they will fit 4 different types of feet. That’s the JD MyFeet, SLink, The Mesh Project and the Belleza mesh body! All of Just Design’s shoes will be made for these feet going forward, so make sure you keep an eye out for new releases.

That’s all from me today!

Stole his pants, but not his heart.

Stole his pants, but not his heart.

I love these loungey pants from Apple Fall at Collabor88, and the fact that they’re made for men wasn’t gonna deter me from getting them! I know I always say it, but I’m gonna say it again. If you’re buying clothes made for the opposite sex of your avatar please make sure you demo first so that you don’t end up disappointed. Guys pants don’t always work well on girls as the hip shape is different and I usually have to do a little cleaning up in Photoshop to hide that. However, if you’re wearing a top long enough to cover them it doesn’t usually matter.

Some other new stuff from C88 is the sweater I’m wearing by UFO – a cute staple for winter, this gorgeous chunky scarf by Yummy and the pose by Imeka who are making a guest appearance.

Had to wear an oldish Lelutka hair for this style too, since nothing else in my inventory says bed hair like it!

Hi guys! I’ve been away for a few days so I’m breezing back in with this romantical, floaty pic today!

The maxi dress is a gorgeous new release from Drift at TDR Fusion. There are 3 different prints and colours available but I was really feeling the soft blue. Also this new Candy hair from Truth, I cannot tell you how much I love it, but believe me, it’s a lot!

I have a few new accessories on as well, the bracelet and necklace are available at TDR Fusion as well, by Glow Studio, the pretty daisy bag is one of Gizza’s items at The Arcade and the neckerchief is new from Ilo at The Mens Dept with both male and female versions available.

Dare You To Let Me Be

Dare You To Let Me Be

Happy Hump Day people! Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday. First of all I was listening to this song by Adele earlier on today which was where the post title came from, I don’t mind admitting I’m a big fan of hers.

Anyway I got so much stuff to talk about in this post so I’ll try to keep each bit brief coz I know I have a tendency to ramble.

I was dressing up quite a lot lately, but as soon as the sun started shining and the seasons changing, I just want to run around the grid barefoot in tanks and shorts all the time. If I only had to buy one tank top this season then this Hangover Tank from Drift would be it. I’ll tell you why. There are 3 options you can buy it in, linen gauze, and a couple of different knitted versions. Each version comes with FIFTEEN different colour options on a very easy to use HUD. Not only that but the ruffles at the bottom of the top are a separate piece so you can wear it with or without and they have their own HUD too, so you can have different colour ruffles to the rest of the top. The combinations are endless and such a bargain for 225Ls.

I’m also wearing the Surfer Rosa hair from Clawtooth that you can find at The Arcade’s Gacha event, which is still going on for a bit. I actually bought this one at a yard sale to make sure I got the colour I wanted, I’m a cheater like that. The belt is the Rockabilly Birds belt by Sweet Leonard and was their item for Lazy Sunday a couple of days, but I’m pretty sure you could still pick it up in their store even though it might be a bit more expensive than the Lazy Sunday price. She also has lots of other matching accessories for it too.

I usually wear eyes that are a lot lighter than the ones in this picture, but since I was doing a different look these seemed to go pretty well. They were the group gift from Ikon for March. Are you a member of Ikon’s group? If not then I recommend it coz you get a free gift at the start of every month and the group is free to join! I love Ikon’s eyes so getting a new set every month is exciting!

I look a lot different in this picture mainly because I finally took the plunge and bought the new Zara skin from Glam Affair. This skin is currently only available exclusively at The Skin Fair on sim 2. Overall it’s really well made, as you’d expect form Glam Affair, and I think it’s a lot different to previous ones they’ve released. There are plenty of different make ups to choose from and some metallic eye shadows which are just amazing, but of course I got a more natural looking version (02) because I knew I’d wear that most. I’m not sure if it will replace Amberly for me, which has been my every day skin since it was released because there are a couple of features that I liked better on Amberly, like the lips and eyebrows. But that’s just personal preference and I’ll probably get used to it the more I wear it. You still get the clean version as well which actually I normally wear more than the ones with make up.

Now I don’t usually wear teeth. I’ve tried. I’ve bought tattoo layers, prim teeth, mesh teeth but they never look right to me because I always feel like too much of my top lip disappears. But today when I was fussing with the skin, adding bits and pieces, tweaking my shape etc, I found the Izzie’s tattoo teeth set I had and they fit this skin perfectly. I like the Izzie’s teeth because it doesn’t show too much. All I want is a hint of teeth, not a great big set of gnashers sticking out. The only thing about them is that I wish they weren’t so gappy. Other than that I think they look good with this skin!

Finally I took this picture at the gorgeous Neva River sim, which Neva Crystall has opened to the public for the next few days. I felt like a bit of a stalker taking a picture outside her house lol, but it’s a really beautiful place and I’ll definitely be returning for more photo ops. Don’t miss your chance to go and have a look round!

Little Miss

Today I’m bringing a mixture of the goodies I picked up from this months C88 and Culture Shock 2012. I think I might be done with both those events in  a week or so…maybe.

I love this cute mesh skirt from U.F.O at C88 this month. It comes in a range of soft colours and I picked up a few of them. The textures are complete prettiness and the fit was good, even though it’s not in standard sizing, there are 7 different sizes instead. The ballet style shoes were also by U.F.O at C88 and I love pair of  flats so those were an easy buy for me.

The mesh scarf I’m wearing is from Mon Tissu at Culture Shock. Again it comes in a wide range of colours and is a perfect accessory. It’s a little awkward to wear with some mesh tops but goes perfectly with the frilled tank (recent Mon Tissu release) that I’m wearing here and you could always revert to a regular layer top with it anyway.

Finally I’m wearing the fab new Kirby mesh hair from Truth, which I think has a bit of a retro look to it that I just love.

Hope you all have a good week and if you haven’t been to C88 or Culture Shock yet, as you can see from my last few posts it’s definitely worth a trip!
