I’ve built a corporate fashion forward look with Emery’s new mesh Destiny top that’s currently available at My Attic. It’s available in 5 colors, and I think this look would really pop with the berry and au colors. I went a bit more sedate with my beige. It’s a high waist cut, that goes nicely with My Attic palm print Irie skirts, or any high waist bottom. I’m wearing it with Celoe’s Nikka Skirt in pitch, they worked perfectly together. I’ve accessories with SLink’s new Attache Bag in black, which is also available at My Attic, and Erratic’s new Emily leather boots in beige. The Emily boots are available in 11 colors, and a nice variety of browns within, and include a HUD for 3 types of metal inner zippers. I’m wearing a new skin from Tuli, the Eva in makeup 04 with dimples, and used the Tuli skin applier to custom match my SLink mesh hands. My nail polish applier is My Attic Sandee available in Set 30. Its a lovely cream, with silver pinstripe. My hair is newer from Wasabi Pills, and asymmetrical fringed bob called Betty. It’s currently available at FaMeshed. My poses are Adorkable’s Ella set, Cinderella themed poses before and after her fairy godmother change. All in keeping with My Attic’s April theme of ‘Change’. If you have styled/blogged a corporate/business attire look consider dropping it in my Second Life – Corporate Chic flicker group, check the group out for styling ideas.

My Attic’s April session runs through to April 30th. The theme for this session is ‘Change’ and the designers, and guest designers participating have created beautiful items based on what that theme means to them. A selection of fashion, hair, poses, accessories and props available. I hope you will join us for this event at The Deck.

Spring Fashion 2012

Spring Fashion

Spring is when we store away our heavy winter clothing, abandon the dark colors, embracing color, and light. I’ve put a spring outfit together utilizing the 2012 hot color trend of tangerine, offset with another 2012 trendy color shade of blue/green that fluctuates between teal, and jade.

Thinking of fall

Comfy Brown

To be perfectly honest, I am burnt out.  My real life is full of deadlines, activities, chores, while my second life is equally full of them.  I find myself in a zombie state at the computer unable to focus on anything that isn’t completely a waste of time.  When I walk away to take care of a non computer related real life task, I become just as unfocused, and unable to complete the task.  So I muddle through, hoping somewhere along the way I get energized, and able to get back on track.  So a quick style post, based on I know I should blog, and I was wearing it and liked it.

LeLutka - Flutter

LeLutka just released Flutter a new female skin with a variety of new tones.  Shown here is Bisque which I judge to be similar to a light-mid tan/sun-kissed ranged tone.  I really liked the unique eyebrows, and the beautiful shading that really accentuates the eyes, a good cheek bones.  I am looking forward to seeing this changes as they relate to others shapes, but at the moment love it on my usual shape.
When you buy a skin tone you receive twelve makeup variations (one of them being a bare makeup, which is great on it’s own or for use with other makeup layers) in a dark brow, and twelve in a light brow. Two brow shapers (not shown here) for light and dark, breast enhancers on a layer and undershirt clothing layer. I was really excited to see the addition of two hair bases in Sookie, and Walnut Whip hair shades, nail covers in a matching bisque tone (for wearing under prim nails) on layer, and glove layer, and their 2011 lashes/curl  (which are color changeable).   I liked the range of tones this skin came in, and went with Bisque as it seemed like a nice end of summer tone, I look tanned, and with a few of the blushes a hint of sunkiss.  I might switch up a shade as fall progresses and winter comes. Grab demos to check out the new tones, and check out how it looks on you.

Flutter Full

And..yes, I just blogged a skin in my fringed cowgirl boots, if you don’t like it you can go dig up my mother and tattle, but she’s just gonna tell you about the summer I refused to wear anything but my white patent dress shoes from Easter.

Retro Wasabi

Wasabi Retro
Wasabi Pills has released a number of new hair styles since Hair Fair 2011. Shown here in a style post is a cute one called Pompon.  Featuring color/texture change headband, ribbon, knot, and hair bands.  It’s a cute look, I love the bangs.  Also shown are Roy which is a nice unisex style, and I think Thor does well for girls as well.   MissAllSunday Lemon, the hair designer behind Wasabi Pills brand, had many requests for a variation of her Kiki hair, and released Kiki Act II. I’m wearing a fun top called Vicky from artilleri which features a variety of different ‘patches’ shown here with Cherry.  I paired it with an early summer release from LeLutka, the Caprica jeans, shown here with the 3/4 cuff option.  Bukka is a cute store I love to find new things in, shown here are the Double Ring Belt, in this amazing color, it’s full of options even color change loops to match your clothes. I’ve pulled out a favorite style of purse from Celestial Studios.  Celestial Studios was around for years for those didn’t know. They were a popular place to go for skins, eyes, and clothes.  They closed earlier this summer, and will be missed. If you have their items, brush them off, give them an airing they are still great. Lately I have been using alot of their babydoll dresses with my Bloom avatar.

Wasabi Pills Recent Releases

YS&YS’s new release is the Milano Slingback, a sexy slingback shown here in Cherry White.  These are cute, I love the various patterns and colors. These are prim feet, and be sure to remember your best tricks for tinting as they do not feature any prim work to hide the attachment point.  Remember when tinting you will never get a perfect match, just very close to it. For these I recommend being sure to size them right to obscure the area. I sized down about -5 to hide the join. When tinting for street wear (as opposed to blog wear) I like to use the default light settings or a standard Caliah windlight setting. The majority of people on the grid are using default or a Caliah windlight variation. I no longer wear face lights.  Together these help assure me that most people most of the time are going to see me with matching feet.  It’s not fool proof, it all depends on what someone else’s default light settings are, and if there are lights around.  Who cares when they match on my screen ;P!

YSYS HUD

Many people aren’t sure how to go about tinting feet with just using a color picker, for those who aren’t sure I have taken a shot of the color picker on the YS&YS HUD, and circled the area I used to sample colors from.  This area, as well as below into the greyish areas is great for finding various skin tones.  Just use the slider on the right to move between light and dark after choosing.  Play with it a bit.
