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!

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

Lately I’ve been, I’ve been losing sleep.

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep

I love this Tori dress from Baiastice, the silky texture and the lace, is it a dress, is it lingerie? Well I decided to dress it down by throwing on an over sized cardigan and boots.

The cardigan you can find from Eaters Coma at The Season’s Story, there are 4 colours available and each come with a cropped, turtle neck sweater beneath, that is colour changeable via a HUD. It’s a pretty good deal! I bought 2 colours and honestly, I might go back for the other 2 coz over sized cardi’s are one of my most favourite things and I know I’ll wear them to death. Not only that but it’s another of those cool, hands in pockets dealios. Great for pics!

I’m wearing the Punisher boots from Candydoll, which you can also find at The Season’s Story, in 3 exclusive colours/textures. I added the Lucy socks from JD too, these actually came from the Lucy shoes but you can wear them with almost every type of boot too, since they have an alpha selector on the HUD.

Finally from The Season’s Story is this messy hair style from Moon. It’s my new favourite. Not taking it off.

I Think I’ll Miss You Forever

I Think I'll Miss You Forever

Spring is definitely in the air, and the items at recent events are really reflecting that. I love all the nude and light pastel tones that come out in spring, it’s probably one of my favourite colour pallets so I always get excited when I see something similar as one of the monthly themes at C88.

I got together with my bff4life, Harper, to take this pretty shot with a bunch of stuff from Collbor88, and tried to give it something of a vintage feel. The pose we’re using is actually a couples pose from !bang, of course I had to sit on the blue ball coz I was tallest!

Let me start with this amazing hair from Tableau Vivant that I’m wearing. There is never enough wavy or curly hair in SL, in my opinion, so I always get very excited when I see one. There are 2 versions of this hair available at C88, with and without a floral headband attached. Very boho and perfect for spring.

I loved the simple, system layer bandeau tops that Tres Blah released too. Obviously I’m a huge mesh fan but it’s nice now and then to get something like this that you can use for layering, plus as I said a couple of weeks ago, I’m really into cropped tops at the moment.

Skirts and dresses were huge this round at C88. We styled this picture with the nude ones available from Secret Store (on me) and Nylon Outfitters (on Harper). The Secret Store skirt has a really nice HUD feature that has 3 different lace options for the top layer and I’m always a fan of extra options!

The shoes that we are both wearing are a new release from Just Design, out today for The Seasons Story. They come with the mesh socks included, which can also be worn by themselves. If you want to wear the shoes without the socks, then you need to make sure you have the JD MyFeet, as they are made to be add ons for them. As well as the wooden platform and heel, there’s also an option to change the texture to match the shoes and if you get the fatpack then all the colours are interchangeable via the HUD. The fact that you can wear the socks separately and with other shoes too, is a huge bonus. I got these shoes a couple of days ago and I honestly have not taken them off since.

As far as the background goes, the balloon swings are out at C88 by Flowey, and of course they’re animated. Great decor piece or pose prop. The little chicken toy that’s sitting on it is one of several cute, little collectibles from Marmelade at the Fiction and Fables event.

I have so much cute and pretty stuff in my inventory right now that I really need to run and take more pics. So, bye!

Just a quicky post today with a bit of a rockabilly style, since I wanted to show you these sexy new heels from Just Design. You can pick them up at The Liason Collaborative’s Boutique, which opened a couple of days ago. I really hadn’t intended to blog the shoes this way, but I’ve been wearing them non stop for days, and found myself dressed up in this outfit for an event in SL today, so I went with it!

The Coco shoes are add ons for the JD MyFeet Tiptoe, they’re a steal at 250Ls (only for this event) and come in a wide range of patent colours. Make sure you grab a pair while they’re on offer!

I’ll Take The Good Times

I'll Take The Good Times

I’ve been getting so fancy lately, what with all the festive, party season releases, and Collabor88’s Nostalgia theme that started yesterday has only helped to feed that trend. I picked up, 6 or 7 new dresses and a toooon of hair, so you might have to bear with me getting my glam on again for a lil bit.

This dress from House of Fox was one of my favourites, as soon as I saw the ad for it on Flickr, I knew it was gonna be love. I wasn’t wrong. I added a flower, which is actually a hair piece, on my hip where the fabric would rouch, to help co-ordinate my black accessories.

The hair is also a new item from D!va who made up for their absence at last months round by producing 4 different hairstyles and as usual they’re super sweet and wispy. Still one of my favourite hair brands for using in pics.

Other new items from C88, the skin from Glam Affair, also the more modern chain necklace from them as well and finally the clutch from Baiastice.

Oh and yes, I know I’m wearing sunglasses in the snow, thank you for noticing daaaarling!

Well I’m about to go off on holiday in RL for a couple weeks, so I thought it was kind of appropriate to grab my HoF luggage and take a snap.

The dress I’m wearing is new from Drift, with lots of different bright colours to choose from. I love the raw silk texture work and, you might have noticed that I have a penchant for black accessories, so the black seam detail was perfect for me to tie in with those.

Also, you may or may not be aware that Elikatira has reopened. I only found out through Plurk, since I’m not in the group, but I believe there were some group gifts (for existing members only, the group is/was closed to new members) and then several styles released into the new store. I’m wearing one that is actually a pretty sleek bob which I love, but I attacked it in PS to give more of a windswept look.

I took the picture at the new Glam Affair site, which reopened this weekend, it’s a great mesh city build and even if you don’t need to shop there, I highly recommend checking it out!

This is gonna be all from me for a couple of weeks now, and I’m sure there will be plenty of new releases for me to catch up on when I’m back!
