Maitreya ~ Dakota Dress

Maitreya recently released several items, one of them the Dakota Dress.  This is a fun, sexy, mini mesh dress in 20 colors and prints.  There are five cool prints, five striped prints, five chiffon, and five brushed chiffon.  The choice of fabric texturing and the excellent draping meld perfectly to create  a beautiful soft dress, you can almost feel it. The dress features a shoulder strap with snap button detailing.  There is a a fabric cord tie at the side waist, adding extra detail.  It’s a really lovely dress, and they did a short top version as part of the release too.  I’m wearing the brushed chiffon dress in black, with my Suki jewelry set from Amorous.  It’s mesh, and has a menu that allows for 5 different plate metal changes, as well as the metal links. The set includes a necklace, earrings, and bracelet.  I’m wearing a new release from LeLutka, the Vibrato hair.  It’s a long, soft but straight, flowing hair that falls behind your shoulders. The shade I’m wearing is Praline Fade from the fades pack. My skin is new from Tuli, the Zoe skin, in the Powder skin tone, makeup 04 with dimples.  My shoes are also from Maitreya, the Maitreya Gold Suave mesh platforms.  They are availble in 10 colors, and come with a HUD that gives you 4 platform textures, and a sock version with 23 colors of socks.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Earlier this week, I was able to stop by the Around the World Event, where I picked up this zebra print top from 22769 there. It’s mesh, nice texturing, I love all their offerings for the event, I felt they really nailed the theme.  I’m wearing my Maitreya Gold Suave shoes in Raven to accent the top, and jewelry by Celoe.

Collabor88 for November 2012 opened with a new themed collection called Painted Desert.  Brilliant theme, the color palate was refreshing and dead on for this theme.  From the collection I’m wearing Clawtooth’s I Never mesh hairstyle, Clawtooth released two hairs, this one is similar to the other, and features bangs/fringe. I’m also wearing jewelry from Collabor88 – Maxi Gossamer Jewelry’s Tarifa mesh necklace, and matching mesh earrings.  They have color change/resize via menu, just click the jewelry. It’s very lovely, very southwest.  I’m using these items to style with DCNY’s new mesh Boho Baby Dress.  It’s a cute dress in a variety of fun colored paisley patterns, from subtle buttercream to its a bohemian Christmas with Gingerbread.  The design is cute, featuring ties on the bodice and lovely trim. I’ve styled the cloud colored (cerulean) with matching cerulean shoes and purse from Maitreya.  Izzie’s recently released this new skin Geanna. Shown here in my favorite tone Sunkissed, you can see its a lovely, fresh, youthful look.  I’m wearing the nude rose lipstick, and silver eyeshadow.  Izzie’s skins features lipsticks, eye shadows, freckles, cleavage options, and are avialable in a variety of tones.

Sugarsmack & Mimikri

Sugarsmack Mimikri

I love tunics, but when I saw the shades of purple on this one from Mimikri, I knew this Zaara skirt would work with it well, and decided to mod it shorter to a top.  I love that the colors from my Salience Socks & tights from Shoe Fair 2011 were perfect. This variation Maitreya did on Salience really added a fun element to already cute shoes.  I got to know Sugarsmack hair from Hair Fair 2011, and fell in love.  Shown here is Lorne, in Coco Pudding.  I love the shape of the hair, the whispy bits that move, and the lovely braid across the forehead.

A Busy Week

Riddle Secret Linden

The grid has been a nightmare for me recently, textures take forever to rez, worn prims disappear, then when everything is just right and I try to take a photo, the prims go grey again.  Way too frustrating!

I finally was able to get some blogging done, this outfit comprises some new releases, some event clothing, and a charity item.  March 5 to March 26, Juicybomb is hosting Pure Juice, which features a number of designers.  I’m wearing from that event, The Secret Store’s Juicy Top, in Hot Pink.  It’s also available in Carmine, and French Pink.  Featuring a prim top, with cute black bow empire waist.  Also featured at Pure Juice is Riddle, who made these awesome leather pants, shown here in black, they are also available in brown. I love the texture of them, and they feature prim pant legs.  This is just a tiny sampling of what’s there, click here for a teleport to PureJuice.

My hair and necklace are recent releases from Maitreya, and Mood.  Lotte is a relaxed pony tail with color change ponytail band.  Mood’s Chrysalis necklace and earrings, come with a hud that lets you change the metal from the shade shown here to darker tones. Je Suis has had a sale going on, you might still be able to stop by and binge on jewelry.  I picked out my Magnifique bracelet, I bought the fatpack, which has a set of bangles, and each bangle, or all, can be color changed via hud.  Two stacks are included, preset to be worn on either wrist.

My bear is the Relief L$1000 – Teddy Bear, all proceeds from the sale of this bear go to the ‘Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief efforts of the American Red Cross’.  Click here to view the 2 styles of bear, one sitting, one wearable, available in various prices.

Another Spring Day

2 looks, and a skin.

Mimikri Full 1

I started out wearing the dress from Look #1, while out shopping with Sasy of SasyPants, and Newdoll, of Scantily Clad (NEW!). The look centers around the Emily dress from Mimikri which is a fun pattern, and I love the colors in the Beige variation.  What I loved was how fun Emily could be to mix and match with.  This is where designers need a heads up, if they are not already including all parts on all layers!  This dress featured the top on the shirt layer, and the undershirt layer.  The bottom of the dress glitch bottom is on the pants layer prim and resembles the bottom of a bodysuit or leotard, WHICH I LOVED.  However, it doesn’t come on the underwear layer too helping make it more wearable for shorts, pants, and skirts.  Bummer, cause its adorable.  But I was able to mix it up with this high-waisted skirt from Emery, YAY!  I love to mix and match, it’s a challenge for me.   I get so busy inworld, that click and wear outfits pre-assembled from designers could easily become my mainstay, yet I love the uniqueness of mixing it up.  This hair from Lamb, is the bomb!  Totally Bombshell!  Love it.

Vanity Universe Skin Fair 2011 – Aleida (Valentina)

 

Vanity Universe Skin Fair 2011

Aleida - Valentina - Body

Aleida is a new to me skin store. Shown here in Sunkissed tone, and the makeups with no prim lashes worn, there are more makeups available then I have shown. Each skin has a hair base, and cleavage option on the actual skin, along with light and dark hairbases, and freckles on layer. If you like tan, try the sunkissed. She also has a number of darker skins, and one lighter (pale) then sunkissed. I would really love to see her expand her range from Pale to Sunkissed, I think she has the talent to be able to do it. I liked the fun makeup, and freckles on layer. Stop by and grab some demos, and don’t forget to grab her gift. ;D

Spring Rain

The weather has turned to spring in my area, and I am so over hearing about snow, and winter, even though I really don’t experience any of it. Yay, life in the tropics. Eclectic recently released this cute dress for spring, I love the color variations, there are a ton. This one is my favorite, it’s called Olive.  I accessorized with wood bangles, necklace, and jewelry, to match my rattan bag, and cocoa colored shoes.  A nice neutral approach if you are not sure what to mix in.  My fun umbrellas comes in a pack of poses from Attituede.  I love how wowsa my eye make-up turns when I throw on some lashes with this particular skin.

With Love – Plaid

With Love - Plaid

If you are looking for some great deals this season, and think you missed them all, check out the With Love Hunt that’s ongoing until December 17th.  All items in the hunt are offered for $10L each.   You will have to hunt for them at each location, starting location is at Le Cirque, for hints, and more info join the group.   This Tartan HighWaist Sweater/Dress is from Peqe, and is their With Love Hunt Item.  The plaid and cut is fun, wintery, and stylish.  I loved pairing this with my Ruffled MiniSkirt from Luck, Inc, and the fishnet leggings from a dress from Osakki, mix in the latest release in shoes from Maitreya Gold.  These shoes are full of options, bonus if you buy a fatpack you can get a wider variety of sock colors.  All sock style options of Over the knee, short, and layered included with purchase.  The Paper Couture earrings, and Modern Gypsy’s Studded Leather bag complete the look.  The bag was on full bright, I unchecked the full bright, and added a light grey tint to soften the effect of the studs. Don’t be afraid to mod an item if it’s an option, I could have easily enhanced this look by tinting some parts even a dark red. The hair was a fun combination of MADesigns Eve hairs, with my Amacci hair bases, shown in Dark Brown.

Shag @ Hair Fair 2010

I was thrilled to see Shag at Hair Fair 2010.   Guys will love it as they made guy hair, which you can see blogged by Gasolinealex Serevi on YouStyleSL.   I’m doing three hair styles for girls, one being this great hat hair called These Things.  It features color-change hat, and band, and this cute low ponytail down the back.  Shag also made this thick braided pony called Let Me Kiss You with whisps escaping the braids.  It’s very casual, and very cute.  I love the hair they have set for charity called Breathe.  It’s a full big hair, a bit tousled.  It’s easily my favorite of their Hair Fair 2010 release, and I am in love with their chestnut shade now enough to wonder what color have I been wearing all this time from them.  Hair Fair 2010 is ongoing through September 19th.  To see what stores or get slurls to it , click here.   This year Hair Fair charity hair styles, and bandanas donations go to help pay for custom-made Wigs for Kids.

Shag @ Hair Fair 2010

I chose Breathe with this dress I picked up from Gizza Creations.   This empire dress is full of color and movement, a bright happy dress to spend Labor Day in.  I’ve piled on the jewelry for a little tropical end of summer glitz, all of it from YS&YS, added more color with my makeup/skin from Chaisuki and grounded it with these summery Maitreya Gold  IXKin’s in cocoa.

Soul Sloshing

I’ve been doing a series of posts on my favorite jeans, and this time it’s fri.days turn. This is such a vivid outfit.  I really like this shade of red with this particular pair of jeans from fri.day’s Iunno pack. They feature a variety of cuffs; flare, cuffed, boot cut, skinny, in addition to that they provide them with a flat shoe variation length and come in several shades.  The shirt is part of a short dress from Coco.  Available in four shades, I had to have this vivid red, and the warm yellow too.   I have a double skinny belt in white with gold logo from YS&YS.  Most of my jewelry is discontinued, you may have them in inventory.  I’m also wearing a bangle set that is available, at fri.day, the red ones.  My bag is the sack bag in white from LeLutka, it comes with an ao version, and one without, and is available in quite a number of colors. My hair is a new release from Ploom called Seffy II, shown here in Blonde. I used the color streak hud to put a red streak in to match my shirt. My skin is from Tuli’s Jade line, I love the simple classic look of this makeup. My shoes are from Maitreya’s Maitreya Gold line, called Shanti, shown here in Cherry.

Ohmai R.icelli

I love black and white in the summer!  This is  fun outfit, more formal than what you think of for summer, but great for summer formal splash, which I’m attending later.  R.icielli makes these great highwaist skirts, that include the belt, all modifiable for a very easy fit.  This bodysuit has been available at Ohmai as a freebie for some time now.  It’s all hand-drawn, with a cute prim ruffles at the shoulder.  Maitreya Gold’s Aequus heels in white, with a the color changeable ankle wraps shown here in black.  Accessories are easy when you dress like this keeping the shades simple.  Black, and gold bangles from Armidi, paired with Septem Essentia’s Starbow black weave purse, and I am ready to mingle.  I am wearing Tuli’s Sayuri skin, with Tiny Bird’s Kissy Kissy in Ginger.

82nd Annual Academy Awards & Virtual Fashion

Whimsy Winx & Red Carpet Virtual Fashion

This evening I will be attending the LIVE Virtual Oscars Pre-Show, which made me wonder…what would Whimsy wear to the Oscars.  One has to carefully plan these things out.  One needs to consider what role they are to play in the evening.  Whimsy is an ‘It Girl’.   I’ve not produced, written, or starred in anything, or presenting, so the dress while chic shouldn’t overshadow anyone nominated for an award.   So as an ‘It Girl’ attending, I’m required to show up, look pretty, and act pleasant.  Pretty simple.  Maybe.  One has to consider the venue.  I will walk the red carpet, it’s a formal event.  Red, Black, and White will be colors people gravitate to because of the events nature.  I will leave that to others.  I could go for russet, but it looks wrong in the winter/spring.  Greens, are a go, but not for me today.  Swan feathers, and avant-garde have already been done.   It was a tough call but I went with spring as a theme.  I narrowed it down to two dresses.  Both flowered in theme- one avant-garde, one classic.  I chose this one, classic,  for the Oscars, as I didn’t want to be THAT girl in the avant-garde flower dress.  Not today.  That dress I will save for another event I want to stand out in.  Tonight I shall blend and enjoy the evening.
