Whimsy & Sasy

Sasy and I are blogging many cool finds from February’s My Attic.  I’m wearing Cynful’s Kamalin Dress in Suede, over Miseria’s Danger Days jeans in Dusty. These jeans work well with the dress, as the jeans are layer, and the dress is mesh. I’m also wearing Epoque’s so kawaii mesh HaiHai Lovers Ring, mine is called ChouChou and there are 6 in total available. They are so cute! From My Attic I am also wearing Esk-Imo’s Britney hair, this is the blonde pack, in blonde 3. Via the included HUD I changed sections of it a brown to match my dress and scarf. My scarf is from Fanatik, in the Safari Nights print, which I have match to my Gaudy bracelet from Amorous in zebra print. The bracelet is click change textures and metals. My shoes are the Fabric Platforms in black from SLink. These shoes are designed to be worn over SLink’s mesh feet.

I like Sasy’s outfit as it’s full of color. She’s wearing the Faded Danger Day’s jeans from Miseria, which is currently available at My Attic as well as the Rene hairstyle from Ploom. She’s layered the House of Fox’s Xue Top, over the Miseria jeans. The top is currently available at Collabor88. Another event item is this pretty skin from Glam called Luria, this skin is a sneak peak at what will be at The Arcade in March. I like Sasy’s accessories which are the Sedona Valley Necklace and Bracelet from Maxi Gossamer, and her Charlie Boots from Treads.  It’s a nice muted but still colorful look. Mixing and matching can bring about some really amazing looks, as well as mixing textures like the rugged but soft feel of the boots with the sturdy fabric of denim, and soft top. See Sasy’s post to see what she has to say about these looks.

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.

A-Line Girls

A-Line Girls

Sasy and I have created two cute looks with the new mesh A-Line skirts from DCNY and Damask Sweaters from The Secret Store. We went in different directions with colors, and accessories, creating unique, soft, cute looks. The Secret Store’s Damask Sweater is currently available at Collabor88, and DCNY’s A-Line Skirts are currently at My Attic. I went with the Salmon Toast colored sweater with the Poppy Blush skirt, I picked up the greens with the apple colored new shoes from Maitreya called Liaison. They’re located in the Maitreya Gold store at Maitreya, and are mesh. They feature short leg warmer options in a variety of colors, straps on/off. My hair is Mosch from Ploom, is mesh with color change headscarf. It’s also at the My Attic event. I’m wearing the Garden makeup of my new Meghan skin from Adam n Eve. It’s a soft, fresh look. I’ve accessorized with handbag from The Secret Store, and my pearl studs from the Jennifer Set from Yummy. Available at FaMESHed, is the Belted Shelf from Pilot. It’s a cute eclectic look for the home, made in mesh.  Click here to see what Sasy wore!

Bandana Day is today at Hair Fair 2012!  This day is set aside every year during Hair Fair 2012, to honor and show support. Second Life residents create unique one of a kind bandanas every year for this event, and they run the gamut from chic to cheeky.  The bandanas are $50L, and are a 100% charity donation.  Please remove your hair in support, and grab a fun bandana or more from the bandana booths located around each sim at Hair Fair 2012.

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.

His & Her Mix

His & Her Mix - Whimsy

Sasy told me about this chic tote from Dark Mouse, I immediately teleported to Dark Mouse.   Comes in a pack of 4 colors for only a hundred lindens!  There is a Red one as a  monthly gift for group members if you join the group too.  It’s a chic straw tote packed with goodies from the market, wine, bread, and a bouquet of sunflowers. I love an awesome tote packed with things, and this fits the bill.  The bright sunshine yellow flowers were so nice,  I chose to accessorize my outfit with a bright shock of yellow.

My next choice for adding more color were my Ballet Flats in Lemon/Black from Flair.  A perfect casual flat, it has these cute little safety pins on them, and come in two colors per pack.  PSST!  If you buy the Yellow/Black Pinned Ballet Flats (shown here) from Flair @ The Deck , and IM Sasy Scarborough saying you saw them on “Whimsy’s Blog” or “Virtually Dressed”, you can choose any other color in the same range  for free!

Milli Santos told me about this store called Honey-Honey a month ago, I teleported over and saw the clothes which were casual and beach oriented at extremely affordable prices, and I bought the whole store!   Items range from cute tube tops like I am wearing here, in black & white check, with a baby-doll top option, to hand drawn tops with sculpted collars, swim wear, shorts, jeans, and skirts.  I also wore Honey-Honey’s White pants, which are nicely drawn, with sculpted cuffs.  I added Honey-Honey’s Black Leather Belt, but I re-textured the silver details to gold, on my own with my textures to match my jewelry.

I mixed in some more yellow with a collection of various jewelery and bangles I have picked up from VG Republic (still closed), and Zaara.  I love these big chunky bangles called Melange, from Zaara, bonus they come with right and left, so you can wear 1 set or really go big with 2 sets on.  They come in a variety of colors, and are reasonably priced.  Zaara has earrings and other jewelry too so be sure to check those out next time you are there.

I’m wearing a the latest skin from Adam N Eve, called Beauty in T4, nude makeup, I hope to blog it soon.  I usually go for T3 at Adam N Eve, but I saw it on Sasy in this shade and went WOW.  One shade darker then T3, and a very lovely tan, I hope to wear it with lots of beach wear this summer.  I am totally in love with the butt on it!  I have a relatively new hair on Torwen from ETD.  First featured when ETD reopened last month.  Shown in Chestnut, its a lovely side pony.

His & Her Mix - Gary

His & Her Mix - Gary

Gary has this knack of showing up matching his outfit to mine well.  After getting changed for the day he showed up and voila he had this on.  I had to take photos of course, as it was completely unplanned that day.

Gary loves his Akeyo Chucks,  they are color changeable, and he fully utilises this feature. Well at least I know cause I hear it all the time.  Gary’s latest big purchase was the new men’s release at artilleri.  He made a very wise investment in the entire set of bowling shirts, shown here in Flames.  I have always loved artilleri’s bowling shirts on him and these fit in perfectly with what he already owns.  Click here to see the 16 piece release of shirts.  He would have worn his artilleri Burt jeans but Sasy stole them!!

Instead he went with another favorite pair of jeans, Black Classic, from Armidi.  They are nicely detailed, a nice color, and feature prim pant legs.  Gary is also wearing a great necklace called Quest, from Uzuri, which was a store gift.  We both own this one and I really like how unisex it is.  He’s wearing Clutch from Tukinowaguma for hair, and one of the Ewan skins from Belleza, and Taped Fingers & Black Nails from SiniStyle Designs.

A Playdate with League

A Playdate With League

A Playdate With League

Sasy and I went out to play and got all dressed up in our finest from League.   Sasy looks hot in the Bella Disastre, click here to read her post on it.  I love Nena Janus’ work, she really is inventive, well done, and multipurpose whether you role play, go for an edgy look, or choose mainstream fashion as your style.   I am wearing a semi new release called Ella.   League is one of those stores its ok to just teleport in and buy whatever the new release is in fat-pack form and go home to see what you got.

League - Ella

League - Ella

Ella is a fun set, consisting of nice layer work which League is well known for.  The textures are finely detailed, the body highlights and shadows realistically done assuring from what ever angle you are seen at is the “good side”.  I love the prim armbands, and the multiple layers to the skirt, and even the cinching around the hems of the blouse. The corset is to die for, I love corsets worn as outerwear.  Ella also comes with an Astrolabe necklace, the perfect accessory with moving parts.

I grabbed everything that came with it including several colors of skirts and stockings, and I love how it works with her Asuka boots.

The Asuka Boots go nicely with many designs in her store, and are worth checking out if you have a boot fetish.  The worn brown leather texture is richly detailed, with a sexy row of buttons running down the sides, finishing off with deadly sharp stiletto heels, and a pointed toe.

The stockings really are a fun addition to your wardrobe.  If you have been paying attention to many blog posts and flickr photos, you will have seen these and other league stockings used to make up many outfits with success.  They work with any style, and come in a number of colors.

I am wearing PixelSalons (PixelDolls) Peppermint (Loose Chignon).  PixelSalon makes these cute hairs in static, with 18 color HUD that come with purchase.  Available for separate purchase is a Streaks HUD, a Fade HUD. I used the Streaks HUD in a reddish tone.  I am wearing steampunk neko ears and tail from Steampowered Nuts,  Thomus Keen is a big maker of industrial steampunk items, which I find work well with some of the clockwork I like.  I think these are great, fully animated the ears turn as if scanning for sounds around you, while your tail which comes in three sizes and is steam powered twitches here and there.  I love them cause to me they are a second set of ears, imagining them actually inputting all sorts of technical data to me from radar, to local stats.  (Hey its my day dream shove it)  They come in two varieties of perms for purchase.  You simply must see his other fun stuff!

To take this shot I used AM Radio’s Miracle HUD, its lovely photo HUD available at The Far Away.  Perfect for shots there, and all over the grid its menu driven easy to use.  I used my VR Library from VR Foundry for posing on location (Xstreet creator listing), and TorridWear for the animation/pose.
