The Garden

The Garden

Collabor88 just opened and their theme for this round is Raw Nostalgia. It’s a very sophisticated palette of colors in muted, soft tones of pink, ecru, and various shades of taupe. Maitreya released the Vintage Lace Gown, in a variety of soft tones, and a black.  The dress comes with a few options. The main component of the dress is Part 1, a solid color slightly ruched ankle length sleeveless sheath dress which can be worn on it’s own.  Even alone it’s beautiful, form fitting, and well done. Included is Part 2 and Part 2 Longer, this is a sheer lace sleeveless overlay that features a sexy hip high slit on one side, and the difference between the two Part 2’s is one is just a tad longer than the other.  You pick the length you like, and can change the look of the sheath by wearing it over if you like.

All parts of the dress come in the same color, however I’ve styled it here with the sheath (Part 1) in the Romantic colored dress, with the Lace Overlay (Part 2) from the Raven colored dress, for a completely unique look.  The dress is available in six colors. Also from Maitreya at Collabor88 is a mesh collar, and pearl necklace.  I’m wearing the mesh collar in Black.

The Garden

I’ve styled this look with much of what I last wore in a classic choice of opera length gloves, and peep toe heels.  My Opera Gloves are by Adam n Eve, and are a glove layer, and skin applier with glove texture for my Avatar Enhancement Hands from Slink.  So easy to wear, just throw on the glove layer, turn off your nails, and enable tattoo layer using the Slink Utilities HUD. Wear the Adam n Eve applier hud to pick the color of the hand’s glove. My Glitter Peeptoe shoes are from Slink, and made to be worn with their Avatar Enhancement Feet in medium. I’ve got the fatpack which features a HUD that lets me select the color of the shoe, and bow giving me tons of options for customizing by look. I’ve used Tuli’s skin appliers on my feet to match my skin, and Fishy Strawberry’s Bon Ton nail polish appliers on my toes.

My hair is Demeter from LeLutka, a soft pulled back style featuring a color change hair ribbon band and a rose you can color change and toggle off. I’m wearing it in the Soysauce hair color, my favorite of all of LeLutka’s color, but it’s a treat to wear it now as I usually grab the naturals pack if I don’t grab the fatpack.  My earrings are an older favorite of mine as well from Muse Fine Jewelry, all prim, very delicate, they’re silver and black.

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.

Hair Fair 2012 – Clawtooth

Clawtooth Seredipity Hair Fair 2012

Bubbles Clawtooth released four long hair styles at Hair Fair 2012.  I’ve been so busy for such a long time, I haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy some Clawtooth hair even though Bubbles is very active in releasing hairs. Shame on me, cause I love Clawtooth, and apparently I have really been missing out.  So while I help organize and build Hair Fair, depriving myself in the process of hair, it makes it all worth it’s still exciting for me.  The release included 2 long loose hairstyles, one featuring a lovely victory type curl/swoop, and 2 braids that were whispy about the face.

Somewhere between Driftwood and Bellflower

Somewhere between Driftwood and Bellflower

After a long day of working on Hair Fair 2012 details, I had so much fun getting dressed today with a variety of new and old pieces.  R.icielli just released a collection of mesh items.  Handbags, jumpsuits, skirts, and tops in a large variety of colors.  You have to see the high-waist leather skirts!  Here I have paired one of their minitops in Pearl with a new skirt from Boom available at Collabor88.  The top is made for high-waisted skirts available in the collection, and I think for many of my high-waisted bottoms it should work well.  I was even able to wear it with this cute skirt from Boom, by also using my League vintage chiffon belt.  I heavily layered 3 necklaces, by starting with my most recent purchase of the Agate Slice Necklace from Yummy, which I also picked up at Collabor88.  It’s a chunky pendant on a thin long chain, and I loved the added gems.  I’ve been all over the place shopping this weekend, from Collabor88 to the new releases at The Dressing Room Blue where I picked up this cute hairstyle called Paige from Exile.

By the way, Hair Designers, Hair Fair 2012 applications being accepted!  But hurry the deadline is the 21st of March.  That’s only a few days, and spaces are limited!!  If you know a hair designer that might be interested, please help spread the word!

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.

Another Fundraiser II – Stellar

If you haven’t heard Second Life residents have come together again, creating skins and makeups for Another Fundraiser II. All items are $50L with 100% of proceeds benefiting Red Cross (for Japan). I am wearing the Hope skin by Lexi Morgan of Stellar. This eye makeup is so lovely, soft, and perfect for my outfit. I’m amazed by it. Lexi, seriously, this is delicate and beautiful. Click here for more information about Another Fundraiser II.

AFII Stellar
This outfit is a mix of LeLutka with Fishy Strawberry. I love how you can take the lower portion of a dress like this (which is awesome in it’s own right), and pair it with a top and it’s a new look. The ruching is beautiful and this shade of blue/grey is soft, making it a very lovely dress. The Careah top is sculpted in several pieces making fitting a dream if you need it at all, plus under layers to cover for show through when moving, and while being rezzed. I found there was no show through on this particular top, the construction was well done, and the cut and style perfect for sculpts. The shading is lovely, and it features a jeweled collar. I love how the colors all compliment each other.

Awards Night

Awards Night 1

Awards season in full swing, inworld and out, and I put together several looks for various events around the grid, but this was by far my favorite this year.  I found this beautiful dress at Utopia.  In the quest to find the right dress for an event, one really wants the confidence they will be the only person at the event in that dress.  Men have it so easy, I wonder if they ever get jacket or waistcoat envy, or find displeasure when someone shows up in the exact same cut, color, and style.  Do we even notice?

Awards Night 2

This dress was a stand out, due to the brilliance of the choice of texture, and color.  I like the added sculpted top with flexi prims of translucent fabric.  The skirt is amazingly full, and moves about quite dreamily.  The left side of the gown has a slit up to the hip, that’s not too wide, but gives a nice glimpse of thigh as you walk.   I accessorized with Muse’s Melusine earrings, I am not sure if these are still available, they were specially made for a jewelry event, but you may already own them, along with the Nougatine bracelet.  My Melody hair and hair base are recent releases from Amacci, as is my Gem skin from LeLutka.

Chaisuki @ Skin Fair

Ok, Whatever you are doing, stop right now and seriously head over to skin fair.  Stop by Chaisuki if you haven’t already, and buy their lashes.  A serious MUST HAVE for the lash lover!  Before I even say one word about the skins…..admire…drool….and lust for the lashes….Emergency Shopping teleport here.

Chaisuki Lashes

Three different lashes shown here, in order they are No. 27, No. 20, and No. 15.  I found them a dream to fit with this skins, and I was easily able to mod them for other skins as well.  Keep in mind due to the nature of the design, you might wanna use these with a high arch brow, and vivid make up for added extra effect.

Chaisuki - Gina - Body

I haven’t had the pleasure of trying Chaisuki skins, and I eagerly dove into my bloggers review pack after I had been able to purchase the lashes, and wear them for a couple days.  I refuse to remove them.  Chaisuki has a recent release called Gina, a lovely skins, with no seam issues, and good highlights and shadows.  Skins come with a pushup and hair option, and are a bare bikini wax, with an additional on layer wax.  The range of eye makeups is stunning, I photographed all of them, and couldn’t bear to stick them in small snapshots, so I’m sharing some highlights, but they are all equally fun, vibrant makeups in this range, all shown with Lash No. 20.

Chaisuki - Gina - Makeups

Chaisuki has pre-released Elise at Skin Fair, shown below, in 4 shades.  It too features all the fine detail of the Gina line, as well as excellent makeup.  I liked her skin tones, even the paler ones didn’t wash you out in a variety of Second Life light settings, and the cream to tan ones were even, and a healthy tone.

Chaisuki - Elise - Body - Skin Tones

Chaisuki is featured at Vanity Universe Skin Fair this year.   Charity skin selection purchases will go to Care International, an international charity devoted fighting against global poverty.  Read more about the charity here.  Donation kiosks will be available on the sim.

Gypsy Soul – Autumn

Gypsy Soul - Autumn

Gypsy Soul - Autumn

One day while window shopping at Kari, I poked around the Tully sim and found Gypsy Soul.  At first I admired the building as it was a style I liked, and I was taking forever that day to rez things, and boy was I glad when it did.   I about died, and cursed my shopping budget immediately but still bought the Whimsy stockings pack (like duh!), and I grabbed the Autumn outfit.   This is such a cute outfit, very now, yet so in vogue as a style in the mid to late 1990’s.  I know cause my closet is still full of RL counterparts from that era.  My first thought about blogging I nixed as it’s Spring and there are so many fun spring styles out there, but lets face it.  It can be any season I need it to be in-world as fast as I can rez a seasonal tree, and it’s Autumn Down Under and I need to get over it.

This lovely outfit comes with items on a variety of layers, thank you Solitude Hermit!   The like the grey sweater with shadows and highlights, and a navy tank to layer under, or wear alone.  The prim min-skirt is a cute little plaid skirt with a tiered overlay skirt, its a fun little skirt and suits the look perfectly.  I noticed that on my copy the centering skirt prim, which is usually of of no consequence as it hides in your body was made of a lightly tinted prim wood.  Usually designs make this clear, but as the skirt was mod, I was able to take care of that on my own, no biggie.   Autumn comes with matching striped stockings, I had thought of wearing one of the Whimsy stockings but decided to stick to the whole outfit.

Any style of ankle boot would have suited this look but I love how the Black Ankle Boots from Lassitude & Ennui lend a little funkiness to this outfit.  Another find was this cute art tote bag from Atomic.  Stuffed with all your art supplies you are set for class, or a ready to find a quiet spot to sketch.  I really enjoyed the attention to detail on this tote, from the brushes to the paints, to the sketchpad, and hints of dried on old paint on the texture.  I thought since there were so many muted shades of blues, greys, blacks, and reds, I could get away with the navy-ish Black Chakra Boho Beads jewelry set from luc.  These I consider a staple in my jewelry chest, the funky set gets a lot of wear, they are available in 8 colors. Once again, so I get to my plein air class on time, I have my Classic Tank Watch in black, from Muse.  Love it.  My fun little Danielle Black Sunglasses  (lightly tinted sunglasses) from Insolence.  These are fun little glasses to own, they are all about the business.  I topped it all off with my Willow hair from Truth, in pumpkin with carrot streaks, and no bow.  Truth did a new release today called the Willow 2, similar you can check out the pics here.  And last but not least, my hipster belt in night from Truth, which I though suited the skirt perfectly.

Truth & Diversity

Truth & Diversity

Truth & Diversity

The latest release from Truth included all kinds of wonderful!  This Over Nighter bag in Snow Leopard, which comes with hand or shoulder option, and a second, which I will use to move to my left shoulder.  Its a nicely texture over-sized bag, appropriately named.  Comes in a variety of colors, as does this awesome Hipster belt Truth made.  I saw the details on the Hipster belt and bought the fat-pack which includes the belt set to stomach or pelvis attachments, re-size script, and the belt in bronze, night, pewter, steel, and wine.  Shown here in Pewter which I think is my favorite…ok well for today at least, tomorrow it maybe wine.  Truth also released a couple of hair styles one of which is Natasha, shown here in Pumpkin.  A lovely side sweep with scripted hair accessories.  The the hair sticks, come with texture change options on the bead, and stick, and invisible option.  Nice, because this hair would be adorable with a flower right there.    He also released a coat, a dress, and shoes, so check here to see the full release.

I thought the Over Nighter Bag in snow leopard was a perfect match for my Brown Black Motifs Jacket from Elle et Lui.  I love this for its wide tall prim collar, and lovely rolled up prim sleeves, and how its generously unbuttoned.  It allows perfectly for wearing interesting jewelry like Uzuri’s Enkai Necklace, and my Black Denim Cotton Jumpsuit from Armidi Limited.  The tall wide collar on shirts look is a favorite of mine, and loads of stores have them, more colors/textures at Elle et Lui, Aoharu, and eLDee.  I chose Uzuri’s Hasani Bracelet, and Dalya Earrings to round out my accessories, along with my classic Tank Watch from Muse.  My sunglasses are a freebie/dollarbie from Mokoptica.

My boots are my current prize inworld.  I can’t enough of them,  I am kicking myself with them, for not buying a fat pack of them.  I only bought brown and black like a dork, and then let them sit around my inventory for awhile without even trying them on! O.o!  They are the Sochi Boots from Diversity..and I loves them.  They come in a variety of colors, and have a re-size script for fitting.  I love how sharp and pointed the toes and heel points are, with the lovely scrunch ankles, and the little strap on the back that comes down to a nice bit of decoration at the top of the heel. Smexy!

Lelutka’s new collection is a fun assortment of stylish separates that will prove over time to be a great wardrobe addition.  What I like most about many of the items, is how well they can go from uber-chic to casual fun.  I needed a no fuss, yet put together look today while I did my errands and was pleased to see how well they work with other designers too.  One of my favorites of Lelutka’s new collection is the Michelle pant, which is available in shorts, or pants (separate purchase).  It’s a great high-waist look, and the textures are perfect, and the saddle brown is such a lush chocolate brown.   I paired it with another favorite from my wardrobe, the leopard print ah, bella! top from artilleri.   The prim sleeves balance the prim cuffs on the shorts to make a perfect combination.   I can’t wait to mix and match more of these shirts and shorts together.  

To lighten up the ensemble I chose another item from Lelutka’s new line of handbags, the  Glen Top Handle Bag, a great wood handled bag with good shape, and texture.  I’m still crazy about bangles so I slipped on some of Zaara’s bangles in gold-so glad I got the fat pack.  I love my Drop Hoop Earrings from VG Republic, temporarily closed at the moment, but we are eagerly awaiting the day they open, with promised newness!  These are color change, and I love that about them.  Since I am running errands and many places to be I have worn a favorite watch the Classic Tank Watch in Caramel from Muse.  When CSI came to the grid, this was a feature on the kiosk of goodies at the Fashion Avenue sim (now closed).  You can find them for sale at Muse, and they come in a variety of colors, and choice of light or dark face.  Muse has just recently released some new jewelry which I can’t wait to blog about, but today it’s just the watch.  Armidi’s Vidalia Pumps were a perfect fit, I love the details, the textures, and the peek-a-boo toes, shown here in Gold Croc. 

A Truth’s new releases of hair is to die for, I love his new textures particularly within the Ginger Collection.  I have worn all four shades, and feel Truth finally “understands” the redheads.  They are soft, rich tones, well highlighted, and never too brassy.  Shown here is Alicia in carrot.  Today I had to wear one of my Mojo skins.  I was catching up on some blogs and had found out I missed out on some St. Patrick’s Day deals at her store.  The Glitterati line is very well done, and can I say I love my bikini wax, I won’t share more details but you can check out the demos.

Fashion Relay Challenge-Laundry Day

Yep, my turn to blog in the Fashion Relay Challenge, and guess what..it’s laundry day.   Gone are my illusions of stunning the feeds, and my readers with an exciting, fresh, couture outfit, and dominating the challenge.

I’m picking up the baton from Arcadia Nightfire of Fashion 360°.   She wore  the lovely Slouch Socks from Maitreya in Blue, which was really handy as they were the last pair of clean socks I had.  So here I am hitting my buildings laundry room, hoping the building super doesn’t come in while I am there.

I’m going to try to work it here in my skivvies, the usual uniform I sit and read fashion mags, and work out event details in.

My baton from Arcadia is a pair of Slouch Socks in blue from Maitreya, if you don’t have these you should totally run over and grab them.  Fatpack of colors for $75.

I’m wearing a messy updo from GuRL 6 called Undone, its in Strawberry, I love this shade.  This hair style is great as you can go from laundry room, to formal charity event in a blink of an eye, and its dead smexy.  I’m wearing a freebie skin from Lazolli called Julia 009 (darling blue), they appear to be new to the grid.  If you teleport over there are two skin gifts containing a number of skins.

Pixel Dolls is having a major sale, the majority of items are $50L, with some items as low as $10, its where I picked up my shirt called Trouble in blue.  It’s jacket layer with prim sleeves, and available in a few other colors.

My lingerie is two separate items from PopFuzz, a Red Tank Top, and Red Boy Short.  The boy short is cut high, and is super smexy.  Both items are this perfect shade of red, that really offsets the blue plaid shirt, cause you know you just can’t show up less interesting to any old laundromat.  PopFuzz is full of amazing colorful finds.

I happen to be wearing my usual watch from Muse, I take them off often to blog.  I love my Classic Tank Watches as they come in a number of colors, with two color face options, this one is the Classic Tank Watch in Black/Silver (silver face).  I am also wearing one of my favorite necklace and earrings from Balderdash.  The necklace is called Faery Hoard- Charmed I’m Sure, and the earrings are Faery Hoard- Hourglass Earrings.  There are a number of earrings in different charms available at the store. I consider my necklace to be good luck, its full of amazing detailed charms.   My phone is from Cluster, its comes in several modes, photos, text, talk, etc.  love it.  Cluster is also where I picked up my laundry room items, etc.

I hope you enjoyed watching me pull a blog post out of the laundry hamper.  I am passing the baton onto Rosie Shark of Rosie Colored Glasses.
