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.

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.

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.

Hair Fair 2013 Mina Hair s

Mina released 4 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2013.  I’m wearing Mirjam from Hair Fair, a nice long smooth style.  I’ve styled the Mirjam with a new dress from Tabloid called Nantes.   The dress is currently available at The Boutique event. Nantes utilizes the new “Materials” of the latest Second Life viewer. This dress is comes with two styles, bow same color as dress, and bow in black.  The black and white version features bodice in black with bows in either colors. I’m wearing the safari shade which is this rich school bus yellow, with matching bow. It’s a great little dress, and would look great paired with a stylish skirt, or slacks. I’ve styled with some of my favorite accessories from Celoe, the Xylia Pumps in claret, the Clement Necklace in sonata, the Dara Bracelet in stigma, and Handverk’s Palette Purse in standard/gold. The purse is a cute clutch style, with aged brown leather back,  love the texture, and the attention to detail.  My skin is Izzie’s Jill in sunkissed, with brown eyeshadow, and dark red lipstick layers.  I’ve used Izzie’s skin appliers n my SLink Avatar Enhancement Hands, and manicure from Flair, Set 100 – partuy.
