Newness @ Maitreya

Whimsy Maitreya Shiki Night Life

Maitreya released the Night Life collection of jackets, tops, dresses, skirts, pants, bags, and a new shoe recently. I’m wearing the Mini Skirt, Calgary Clutch, and Shiki shoes in this post. The skirts are nice and high-waisted, and really give a nicely contoured mesh form to your shape. The texturing is lovely and the skirts are available in 3 styles of leathers, Dark Leathers, Used Leathers, and Vivid Leathers, each with 5 tones per style. I’m wearing the Woodrush color in the Used Leathers style.

Maitreya Calgary Clutch

From the collection I’m also wearing the Calgary Clutch, a nicely textured mesh clutch that’s available in 20 colors, shown here is the Kokoda color. You receive two version of clutches with purchase. The (Alt) version which faces the color/pattern to the outside of the body. and another that faces the front to the inside of the body when worn. I’m wearing the Alt version above. The Shiki shoes feature a tremendous amount of customizing. They come with the usual hud, and I love how it also includes tip-toed bare feet! Just a click, and you’re mesh barefoot! If you buy the shoes as singles, you buy them by the strap color, and the hud comes with 30 platform patterns/designs. If you purchase the fatpack of them, you get the 30 platform patterns/designs and 9 strap colors.

I’ve styled the skirt, and shoes with the VShirt from R.icielli in beigeclair, and layered the League Chiffon Sash in Desert with it. I’m also wearing Maxi Gossamers Tarifa jewelry, it’s mesh, and has 16 colors changeable via click. LeLutka’s fairytale princess inspired hair Jasmine is my hair of choice for this outfit. It features two styles with purchase. The version I am wearing is a pulled back, loose and low chignon that’s very chic. It has an added pony, you can check it out on the LeLutka blog. The hairstyle also comes with Jasmine’s necklace and earrings to complete the look.
If you haven’t heard, Tuli is back! Tuli just released updated versions of 4 of her skin lines; Bella, Claire, Helena, and Sayuri, in 3 skin tones. Read about her return and upcoming plan on the Tuli blog. I’m wearing the new version of Helena in Powder, with the new Gypsy Deviant lipstick layer, and a Tuli eyeliner I’ve had. The skin is soft and pretty, and I’ve missed Tuli!

If the shoe fits…

Celoe - Full

If the shoe fits…buy it in all the colors!  I’d like to think that’s advice my mom gave me, but she didn’t have the obssession with shoes I have.  So this is my advice to you…ok I am really obsessive about clothing in general so in theory you can apply that to everything.  Color is what made me love the new Amae Sandals from Celoe. These are really hot mesh heels! They come in single colors, and combos. I’m only showing the combos today. With my outfit I’m wearing the Heat/Depth combination with the black rivet option. The Amae’s come with the usual skin tinting hud, that also allows for nail polish colors, as well as features texture change rivets to further customize your look. The rivets are available in silver, gold, and shiny black, and can really change the look and feel of the shoe when you change them. Celoe’s hud is a dream to use, you can tint in seconds and be done with it, either by using the presets, color picker/hue slider, or put in your skins RGB/HSL values. The look of the sandals is really sporty, I swear the yellow ones make me thing of a hot sports car.

Celoe - Amae Sandals - Duo Color Pack

I’m also wearing Celoe’s Clara Corset, and Nikka Skirt to match my heels. I’ve accessorized with Miel’s earrings, and modified a mesh bangle set from Maubray to wear a single from the set. I LOVE modify options for this reason. I’ve topped it all off with the Pocahontas hair from LeLutka. It’s a soft windblown look in a long hair.

I’ve paired the Vanity Boots in black with DCNY’s mesh black wash Denim Pencil Skirt, and Ison’s mesh Kimono Sleeve Cardigan in Sand.

SySy just released this lovely a-line handkerchief hem cocktail gown this week. It’s mesh, and gives the impression of light whispy chiffon. I love the color palette she used, specially this muted shimmering green tone. The dress amazingly just also happens to be a similar shade of Shiver in my Maitreya Gold Liaison shoes!

Splash Back

I’ve accessorized with Kungler’s Perola Set in Abalone, and Baiastice’s Mesh Clutch in Flower Juice print. My hair is new from Exile, this mesh hairstyle is called Stay the Night, and the color is Afterglow which I am just over the moon with the blonde in it. It’s a soft look, and I love how tousled it looks. I’ve chosen the teal eyeshadow, and raspberry lipstick that came with Izzie’s Givera skin to bring out more colors in my necklace, and tinted my SLink mesh hand nails a dark raspberry.

Spy Girls

Exile Net - Spy Girls

Sasy and I were out and about and as it happens ended up with a head set. Well you know as well as I, a head set means you have to be up for an adventure so, a magical costume change later, there we were, distracting a tough security guard, and stealing plans, and a rendezvous afterwards. But the amazing thing is our hair didn’t move a bit out of line, thanks to Exile. Enjoy our amazing adventure, and notice…not even hanging up side down can disturb our coifs.

Izzie’s recently released an assortment of high-waisted tights.  I recently blogged her new skin Ginevra I’m wearing. The tights are available in a wide range of colors, and basic tones.  The tights are nicely textured, and available on all layers, with a tatoo layer also included.  I’m wearing them in pink with my Maitreya Gold Liaison shoes, with the sock option on.  I’ve used my shoe HUD to also tint my feet to the color of the tights to accentuate a layered look.  This is a fun look to try out. Mijn Botique’s cute oversized sweater is then layered over a teeny Elymode skirt. The sweater from Mijn was an exclusive item in the With Love Hunt from this past fall.  If you did the hunt chances are you have it, it’s also available from the hunt with the cutest cat design. The Secret Store also carries some oversized long sweaters too if you like this look.  I’m wearing their Tiny Satchel which was in The Arcade gatcha event December 2012.  The satchel was available in a variety of colors, and patterns.  It’s mesh, I love the detail to it.  I’m wearing Maxi Gossamer Jewelry’s Juicy Love  necklace and earrings.  The earrings also come in lipstick versions.  Both the necklace and earrings are mesh, and click to touch color changeable. My hair is Ploom’s Kinsley, which is a fun long hair style in mesh, with color change bands, and available in dipped tones, and a coon tail dye option.

Amacci Hair – New!

Amacci Hair

Amacci just released a few hair styles in the past month.   She’s offering two hair styles in store as free gifts at the moment until January 19th-Elba and Thor!  The Elba hairstyle is a beret style hat that’s color tinted via hud, or made completely transparent showing off the lovely short pigtails.  Thor is not shown, sorry my guy shapes didn’t load in inventory.

Leon and Linda are Amacci’s new releases.  I like Leon for it’s unisex short style. It’s well fitting on women, and frames the face well. It will look great on guys. Amacci also did the Linda hairstyle in a variation of the Leon, with higher bangs/fringe giving it a fresh youthful look.

Before Christmas, Amacci released Anastasia and Gloria.  Both are variations of each other.  Anastasia is a lovely full braided low bun that sits on the nape, and the hair fully pulled back from the front with whisps.  Gloria features a smaller braided bun, with side swept bangs.  The braided bun is lovely and interesting to look at from behind, reminds me the beautifully braided challah bread.  This hair is made to be worn with chicly styled clothing, and gowns. All hairstyles are shown with and  look great with Amacci’s free hair bases.

Ginevra

Izzies Ginevra Full

Izzie’s newest skin release is Ginevra, and it’s beautiful as expected.  Ginevra comes in 8 skin tones, and in addition with the exception of the Mocha skin tone come with dark, light, red, and blonde eyebrows.  Layers include an eyeliner, blush, freckles (face), freckles (face & body), and MOLES!  I’ve shown a face below with all the layers, with the eyeliner layer on. The skin comes with 11 eye-shadows, and 12 lipsticks on layer.
The included freckles are lightly scattered around the body, and a dusting across the nose and cheeks.  The mole option has a variety of small sized moles scattered here and there, with a few on the face.  The blush layer is a really healthy color and about the cheeks and hairline.  The eye liner layer features a nice thick line.  The eyeshadows when layered create some really pretty eyeshadows.  I recommend the using the smokey over the top of another shade for a unique dramatic look. The body is as lovely as all of Izzie’s skins are. Demos are available for you to try them.
