Iced Bokeh To Go

Ice Whimsy- w/love hunt

The With Love  hunt begins November 30th, with many grid favorite stores participating. The hunt will begin at 4pm slt, the starting location is at Cheeky Pea.  Here’s a sneak peek of the skin La Petite Mort will be offering for their hunt item.  This skin features a lovely pale blue/white bokeh effect near the eyes, and strong almost flushed from winter blush.  This skin was fun to style, check out what Sasy did with it!  Where I went light and bright, she brought out the blues, and added some depth. I’m wearing it with Chaisuki’s 47 lashes, and Izzie’s Double Wing Eyeliner for super drama.  I’m all dressed up for an event with my Shiver dress from LeLutka, and jewelry from Muse.  These items have been in my inventory for a while, and that makes them perfect for events.  Many people rush out to grab a dress for a formal event, only to find they are one of several wearing the same dress at the event.  I like to pick up dresses, and formal jewelry here and there, so when an event comes around I have many dresses that minimise the likelihood someone else will be wearing them.  Vintage items are great, vintage like my Muse Celestine Front jewelry.  Consider this while getting ready for your holiday events.  I’m wearing new hair from LeLutka, called Electra, a soft whispy braided style, with a matching hair base.  Have fun with the hunt, and check back here, for more hunt info as it updates.

CHIC Management is celebrating their second birthday by throwing CHIC²! This event has tons of designers, and some really cool items this event is open June 3rd – 24th!  Shown here from the event is the Casual Chic Dress from Sassy!.  These are casual mesh rompers with cute prints, shown here are three patterns, but even more at the event. Sassy! uses standard sizing, be sure to demo.  I really liked the Leaf print, it was light and fun, and liked how the print contrasted against the shade of light banana I chose for my shoes and jewelry.  My jewelry is Je Suis, and the line is Voyante.  All color changeable via menu with many presets, and RGB options. I’m again wearing the K.I.A shoes from LeLutka, when I bought these I KNEW I had to have the fatpack, and it’s paid off.  This rosy brown shade went perfectly with the Dahlia print of the romper.  I brought out the red with the Cowhide Tote from R.icielli, they are available in a wide, wide range of colors, all in mesh. Ploom has this pretty skin Lea with makeup style called Dahlia, life is funny that I would have this and the romper in the same named print available to blog at the same time.  Ploom has some really beautiful pale tones, but I went with Tea for this.  This skin is available at Skin Addiction’s Skin Showcase event until June 10th. I’m also wearing Wasabi Pills Monique hair, which is a great mesh stye, with purchase is a “boobs” option hair which allows for a little more upfront as the name suggests.  It also comes with  HUD to change the color bands, and hair bases.  My shadow photo was taken in my Songo Courtyard Garden from Barnesworth Anubis decorated with matching furniture all available at Collabor88 at the moment at a great price.

The Back To Black Event 2012 – Strength

The Back To Black event starts February 11th through February 29th and is brought to you by Chic Management.  This event is to promote mental health awareness and is themed around inspirational themes; like Love, Strength, Family, Friendship, etc.  I chose two items from Strength for this post, perception is that you either have it or don’t.  The truth is you cultivate it, and exercise it like a muscle, it’s something you’ve had all along.

Back to Black - Yoga - Izzie's

Izzie’s has made these cute leisure sets that come in three colors, with choice of coordinating drawstring cording. I like how comfortable they look, specially while doing some yoga.   Elefantu‘s Yoga Studio is a fun item featured.  It’s a full yoga studio, that comes with a surround sphere so you get the full effect of being out and about at the studio. It’s decorated with yoga mats for you and your yoga buddies, relaxing candles, water cooler, and other decor. Each yoga mat comes with menu driven yoga animations.

For this post I am also wearing new hair from Ploom, and new skin from Adam n Eve.  I love this long pony tail, and how it’s divided over the shoulder and down the back.  Amaris is a beautiful skin I plan to show more indepth in another post.  I went with a natural look for this with the Fraiche.  Included are matching manicures and pedicures on layers, chest enhancers and ‘dehancers’, hair bases in Black, Brown, Pale Blond, and Red. Freckles, and eyebrows in Blond, Brown and Red.

Call for Couture – Sneak Peek – Vanitas Vesture

 

Call for Couture - Vanitas Vesture

Call for Couture - Vanitas Vesture

 

Second LifeCall for Couture starts October 10th!  Designers were asked to create a couture item for auction (50% of this auction final price will go to the charity), and a pret-a-porter (ready to wear) variation (not limited edition).   The designs are captivating!  The first design that caught my eye was created by SarahTheRed Aurbierre of Vanitas Vesture.  She’s a talented designer, who was also recently seen at the Wear Grey event.  Her couture item is definitely a hot ticket.  Her designs were inspired by tale of The Walrus and the Carpenter, which next to the Jabberwocky is my most favorite of Carroll’s writings.   Her couture gown is stunning!  A longer gown then her ready to wear version, its skirt is comprised of oysters.

The ready to wear is a knee length dress, with sexy cowl neckline, and backless.  Available in many colors, it was quite hard to choose which I wanted, and I may go back for the rest.  I loved each and every variation.  Shown here I have the Camel which I thought was amazingly chic, all in beige, that graduated to taupe at the skirt.  Featuring an oyster hat perched on my Camelia hair from Dernier Cri, accessorized with jewelry from Zaara, and this lovely skin from eStyle Exquisite, that I can’t wait to get a chance to do a skin blog post on.  My cute G Field Square-toe Shoes complete the look.

The Classic was fun little dress for a warm autumn day.  Starting with the cowl neck in squash that graduates to beige, then to a deep crimson at the skirt.   I played around with it and mixed  the cowl neck top with an apple green high waist skirt from Ingenue shown on the right.

I completed the look with this cute hair from Frou-Frou, a nice formal updo that includes 3 styles of hair attachments all themed for fall.  They are a shiny metallic, one created from various hair textures in a variety of shades, and natural textures forming pumpkin, acorn and leaves, in a crown.
