Norwegian Wood

Norwegian Wood

Huzzah, today is my Rez Day, I’m 7! Instead of regaling you with ‘oldbie’ stories, I’ve got a style post.  I wore this outfit recently to a winter formal, but had planned it in a different color when I was considering throwing myself a little party for my rez day.  I have to work so no party for me this year, which I can always make up for on my RL birthday.   My location for my party was to be a little Jazz/Blue’s club. Which always makes me think about one of my favorite writers Haruki Murakami. He’s an internationally translated and celebrated Japanese author of contemporary fiction. He always gives me something to think about, and I love how much music makes its ways into his novels. Since the place I was thinking of celebrating in, reminded me of him, I’ve titled my post Norwegian Wood for the title of one of his books (you should check out the movie) which mentions Norwegian Wood by The Beatles, listen here.  Not going to say anything more than that, it’s more of a style post, read the credits, there’s a few new items here, and maybe something new to you.

Cold Autumn Mornings

Cold Autumn Mornings

Shoetopia is on and Slink debuted their new mesh high feet there, and showcasing them with new shoes made for them at Shoetopia,  I’m wearing the new Slink Demi boots, made for the high feet in a lovely chocolate suede.  They come with a hud to toggle on and off the toe, giving you two looks!  I love the side details on these boots as well as the heel, and I’m always into the highest heels possible, so the high feet are a win! Also from Slink I’m wearing their mesh casual hands, and using skin applier from my new Idiosyncrasy skin on my hands and feet as well as Flair’s Set 22 for my manicure and pedicure.

My coat is Celoe’s  Maru Coat in Roast with Maitreya’s Anais Pencil Skirt in Beige with birds. Both are mesh, with excellent modeling and texturing. I’m wearing a new mesh release from Fishy Strawberry, it’s a sneak peek at what she’s releasing at My Attic, which opens November 21st at midnight.  This mesh stole comes in naturals, and colors, and is nicely dropped across the shoulders. Another item from November 2013′s My Attic is Idiosyncrasy’s Natasha II skin.  I’m wearing the dark skin tone in Talk That Talk.  I’m also wearing Ison’s Folded Leather Clutch in Brown, and a new hair from Wasabi Pills called Rene, in Wild Honey.  The Rene hair is really lovely with big curls in a bob.

Slink Demi Boot

Autumn Walk

I’m crazy about the autumn season, it’s the perfect time for being outdoors, when the earth is full of rich color. Dressing for fall is just as much fun for me, when the stores are full of mimicking color, multitudes of textures like suede, leathers, wools, and knits. Layering is the key to keeping winters breath away, maintaining mobility and warmth, and the flexibility of the day turning warmer or cooler at a moments notice. My outfit is layered for a walk in the forest.  A warm new wool coat from Slink, cheerful ginkgo yellow shorts, warm leggings layered under, and beautiful boots.

Autumn Walk

Slink recently released the Marigold Coat. It’s available with a variety of options if you chose the Multipack version.  This version will give you eight wool coat colors, seven belt colors, eight collar colors, and six button colors, that you can mix and match to create a unique look with an easy to use HUD.  I’m wearing the green wool coat, with tan belt, cream collar, and cream buttons. If you choose to purchase it as a single, buy the color you like, which comes with a preselected collar, belt, and button color, that are shown on the vendor.

My shorts are a new release from Boom, the Estate Short.  They’re nicely tailored and available in forty different colors. They’re up on marketplace if you wanna browse the shades.  Layered underneath my Boom Estate Shorts, are my Folklore Leggings in Navajo print from League.  Earthy colors, geometric print, and a nice thick tight knit, which pick up the tan in my Cult Riding Boots from Ison.  These boots are hot thigh highs, in an amazing leather texture, with straps behind the knee and great heel shape. They’re available in tan (shown), black, brown, carmine, cream, and navy.

My accessories are Maxi Gossamer Jewelry’s Dew Encrusted Teardrop ring.  It’s texture change, and I went with amber for my outfit. It’s a nice earthy chunk of rock that suited my look. My earrings are Zaara’s Atiriya Stone Earrings in Carnelian-Gold, more chunky rocks for this look. I’m wearing Flair’s Set 102, in Camo4 to pick up the reddish browns. on my Slink mesh hands. Maitreya’s Leather Satchel in Camo, for a soft suede contrast to my knits, wools, and leathers. My hair is new from Mina, the Josje.  I went with a nice auburn shade, it comes with a hud to change the color of the ponytail band.  I love the thick fringe/bangs. My skin is a new skin from Izzie’s, the Katya.  I’m wearing the Green eyeshadow layer, with Peach Glossy lipstick, and moles.

Butterscotch

Butterscotch

I love butterscotch, and when was trying clothes on I was happy to find Emery’s Crackled Sweater in Cara Latte, went perfectly with my new Sigourney boots in Ochre from Slink. Suddenly it just brought out the butterscotch tones, which I think contrast nicely with the denim and blue.  The Emery Crackled Sweater has a cracked effect, and features a washed denim cotton oxford underneath.  It’s available in a variety of colors, all perfect for fall.

Slink’s Crop Split Jeans are sheer genius, for wear-ability with boots. One of the downsides of mesh, is the difficulty of layer, in the past we were able to just wear our boots over our layer jeans, and now its not feasible.  This style cropped jean, plus the split make it perfect for getting the same look, with some added flair. Should this style take off, across the grid amongst designers, we would be looking at a serious virtual world fashion trend.  The new Sigourney Boots from Slink are available in twelve colors. They are to just under the knee, with beautiful leather texturing. They come in all sizes available for standard sizing, so you can customize your layering.

My accessories are Maxi Gossamer’s Nima’s Fall Leaf necklace and earrings, which feature a variety of lengths, and texture change leaves. Ison’s Scout Boho Bag in chocolate was perfect, for a rich chocolaty suede tote. I’m wearing Flair’s manicure Set 102 in Camo3 on my Slink mesh avatar enhancement hands. It’s a bright goldenrod tone with black tips, from a fun autumny pack. My skin is a new skin from Izzie’s, the Katya skin, in sunkissed tone.  I’m wearing the brown eyeshadow with hot red Lips, and face only freckles. My hair is from Eaters Coma, Hair 27, which was released this past summer at Hair Fair 2013.  I love this hairstyle, it’s long with a bit of a wave at the ends, and tendrils at the temples pulled to the back.

Hair Fair 2013 – Ink

Hair Fair 2013 INK s

I’m wearing Ink’s Chignon hair style from Hair Fair 2013..  It’s a fedora hat hair with a loose low ponytail at the back.  The shade I chose was the “roots” shade which is a golden blonde with brown roots.  The hair comes with a HUD that lets you change the hat, and band.  I’m also wearing Ison’s Detzel Leather Shirt in Black and White with House Of Fox’s Leather Panel Skirt in black and white I picked up at Collabor88 this month.  I chose my Jacqualine Sandals from Celoe in Glamour (black) with silver details for my shoe. I mixed in some color with my pink and silver Boho Bangles from Maxi Gossamer Jewelry, Candy pink nails from Flair’s Set 1 on my mesh Slink hands, and Emery’s Samantha Clutch in Jalpur.  My skin is Marnie from Adam N Eve, and I’m wearing T3 in pink to match my nails. It’s a lovely skin, I love the attention to detail such as my hands, and especially that Adam N Eve also makes skin appliers for SLink’s Mesh Avatar Enhancement Hands, so I get the same quality of detail there too.  The skin comes with dimples, so of course I had to wear that makeup layer too. :D

Hair Fair 2013 INK h

Ink released five hair styles at Hair Fair 2013. The hair is advertised as guy hair, but I don’t care, its perfect, although I would like to see the Chignon on Gary. I’m wearing it for my style post, I liked it so much.  Both Chignon and Newold are “hat hairs”, with Huds that let you change the fedora color, and fedora band.  Newold is full loose hair under fedora, and Chignon is a low loosely looped ponytail under fedora with wisps here and there. Benzie is a full messy hairdo that comes with two styles included, A features a bit of a part up front, and B is nearly fully covering the eyes. Andy is short hair style that angles forward. Seya is a grown out High and Tight style which includes several styles of hair bases, including one with longer sideburns. INK also has a gift hair at Hair Fair 2013, the SKC Blonde/Blue which is a blue and white striped knit cap on chin length hair in their blonde shade.

Summer Rain

Summer Rain

I’ve got a soft boho romantic casual look with Okkbye’s Innocent Ruffle Dress in Soft Creme from the My Attic event.  Perfect for dressing up or down, this dress would be cute with leggings too. I went with Maxi Gossamer Summertime jewelry which are mesh, and texture change. Ploom’s Knitty hairstyle with texture change band, and Ison’s Scout Boho Bag in chocolate. The poses I am used are from Pretense, another My Attic event item, they are designed for holding a bag, duffel, or tote, and also include a duffel bag. I’m wearing new shoes from SLink!  These are the Tri-Colour Wedges, designed for wearing with the SLink mesh medium feet.  They are available in a Multipack with a HUD which allows you to texture change the wedge’s heels to light, dark, black, and the shoes heel, mid, and toe leathers! The shoes are also available in Singles, which also include the wedge options of light, dark, and black, but come in a variety of colors from Bollywood to Under the Sea themes.  I prefer the Multipack, so I can have the choice mix the themes up. The great news about them is they have the new “Materials” specular lighting, so you are using the regular LL viewer there will be that effect.  If you have no clue what the means, it’s like bump map in edit applied to a texture, and click here to see on SasyPant’s post! She’ll talk about the it, and also give you a peek at the Multipack HUD, remember each line on the multipack hud with the color range on it is available in its own singles version. ;P I’m wearing Flair’s manicure and pedicure Set 81 designed for SLink’s mesh avatar enhancement hands and feet, a cute two tone brown manicure with gold tips, and lines.

Spring Pinstripe

Spring Pinstripe

Sysy’s recently released these cute wide legged mesh pants called Rayures. They feature two styles, one for wearing with heels, and another for flats. They’re a cute cuffed pant, with crisp pinstripes available in ten colors. I’m wearing the peachygold color with Maitreya’s new Mignon top in bright emerald. It’s a versatile mesh sleeveless top that can be styled casual and formal. I’ve used it for a bright influx of color, and accented the outfit with accessories in green and orange. My jewelry set is Maxi Gossamer’s Santa Fe jewelry. It’s mesh, and color change via menu. My tote is Maitreya’s mesh shopper in Everglade. My shoes are Ison’s mesh Kippen Wedge boots in a bright tangerine color. It’s a bright colored outfit, cause I’m thinking about spring now that Punxsutawney Phil says spring is around the corner. My hair is Wasabi Pills latest hairstyle called Fay available at FaMESHed. It’s a cute wavy style pulled off to one side. My skin is new updated skin from Tuli, called Helena, in the powder skin tone. I’m wearing the dimple version, with Intense Coral Gloss lipstick layer.

SLink recently released the Vanity Boot! This mesh leather boot features a wood wedge heel, with double outer leg zippers and a zipper on the inner legs. The main boot leg hangs over the foot portion. The Vanity Boots are available in 11 colors, from natural tones to bright fun colors to brighten up your winter.
Vanity Boots - All Colors

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. I’ve brought out added orange as to bring some color to the outfit with my melon colored Intrinsic Tank from Jane, Maubray’s Candy Bangles, and Tiny Satchel in Scarlet from The Secret Store. Miel’s Sha Jewelry Set seemed to be perfect to balance the look. It’s metal changeable via click. My hair is a new hair style from Exile called Little Talks, it’s a cute wavy high pony tail, with bangs/fringe.

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.

Snare

Snare

I’m wearing a recent release from Ison, the mesh Geometric Dress in tan, it features two tone chevron-esque details at the shoulders and neckline. I accented this detail with chevron print leggings from League, from the Folklore Leggings set, called Ziggy. My hair is a release from earlier this month by Exile.  The Beyond The Waves mesh hairstyle features a seperate attachment of flowers to be worn with.  It’s a really pretty style, click here for the post on Exile’s website about it to see the flower option.  I’m wearing it in Rio from the Fusion pack for a toned fade. My clutch is the mesh Envelope Clutch from Mon Tissu, it features two attachment points, under the arm, and a hand attachment. It’s chic, and I love the trim detail. I’m also wearing a new item from Ohmai, a cute mesh bee ring I picked up at the Bees Through the Seasons event.

Celoe Snare Ankleboot Color Composite

Today, Celoe released their Snare Ankleboot!  This mesh ankleboot is hot, put together with leather, in a wedge style, with wood heel simulating a traditional heel.  So amazing to look at, serious shoe porn.  I am in love with the leather straps that fit around the wood from the leather wedge, not to mention the zipper down the back of the shoe. The Snare Ankleboot is available in 8 colors shown above.

Comfortable & Casual

Comfortable

I pulled this casual and comfortable look together for a fall day out photographing autumn trees.  My location shot didn’t work out, but I love the how the browns work together for this.  The corduroy mesh pants from Beetlebones are too cute, and some thought to design, and dressing  into consideration. They’re done in two versions, a tucked and untucked, giving a bit of help to those of us who are working to layer mesh, and prim parts. I’m wearing the tucked version in Brown, and over it I’m wearing my mesh DCNY D-Line sweater.  Because they are the tucked pants, I don’t have to resort to wearing a size smaller than usual pants, with a size up in my top.  The DCNY sweaters are a fun addition to my wardrobe.  The variety and pairing of colors in the set, really can make this a sweater choice that can last through winter. Nice sizing of knit, and color pairings.  Included but not shown is a matching knit scarf with purchase.  Both the pants and sweater are available at My Attic for $95L until October 31st, after that, check the mainstores. I’m also wearing a new mesh hairstyle from Vanity Hair called Verity. This is a really flattering style, with the cutest barrettes.  My shoes are a recent addition to my wardrobe from Ison I picked up at the most recent Collabor88.  I picked up the whole set cause I couldn’t pick just one color, the loafers looks great.  My camera is from Tee*fy, it’s so cute, and my watch is from Miel. I recently gushed about the SLink mesh hands here, but still have to say, SLink’s mesh hands still win over the regular avatar hands.  I feel so different when viewing my avatar now. Grab some demos!

Bandana Day - Hair Fair 2012 SasyPants

Today I am wearing three bandanas, firstly the very stylish Faith bandana from LeLutka. This features a turban like bandana with color print, and option scarf with fringe to elongate the look.  In my other photos I am wearing two bandanas created by Sasy Scarborough of SasyPants, who also is responsible for Hair Fair 2012, as event coordinator, planner, the list of task and responsibilities is endless.  These two bandanas are super cute, featuring little piggies as the theme, a girl and boy are both represented with top hat and bow, all fashionably done in knit!  These three styles are keepers, and I can’t wait to wear my piggies as a knit cap as well this winter.

June in Zuma Hills

I’m wearing a mesh dress from Celoe, which is available at Culture Shock 2012.  It’s a lovely mesh frock available in a number of fashionable trendy colors. I particularly like the silkiness of the fabric, and the lovely gathered bodice. I’m wearing Adam n Eve‘s Amaris skin, in natural with the provided small freckles optional layer. and SLink‘s Sarah hair in caramel, another mesh item.  I have contrasted against the turquoise shade with accessories with warmer tones, like Zaara‘s Balini Necklace in Carnelian-Cyan, her Kashiti Bobble ring, and clutch purse from DeLa in Orange, Ison‘s color block pumps in a warm cognac, and Izzie’s latest release – Spring/Summer 2012 Classic Nails in Tangerine.  Izzie’s is also participating in culture shock, check out her booth there, to see cute tri-color tops she has.

June

I am so over the moon with these nails, as I was having a problem finding just the right shade of nails to compliment and contrast with much of my newer purchases this season, so I approached Izzie Button to consider adding them. They are exactly what I was looking for! I’m completely excited about fashion this year do to the plentiful offerings by many designers featuring the 2012 Pantone color trends.  Seriously I am in heaven, and never have been more excited to hit the stores, and get dressed.  They have me happily wearing orange.  I’m in shock.

My location photo was taken just outside the Zuma Hills prefab from Trompe Loeil available at Culture Shock 2012, This modern, open plan home is made of mesh, and features a lovely pool, many built in features like fireplaces, art, kitchen, lighting, and cypress outside the front entrance. Also shown in my photo are Trompe Loeil’s Zuma Hills barstools in the kitchen area, and couch, chairs, and plants in the living room area.  I’ve used aDORKable poses for this pose, but not the specific ones they have available at Culture Shock, I plan on using these for another post, be sure to check out their booth there.
