Emery’s mesh Lovecraft dress is a really popular dress currently. It’s well rigged, and I really like the attention to detail on each of the color blocks. It comes in 4 different color choices. I accessorized mine with Maxi Gossamer’s Opal Set, Izzie’s over the knee socks,  Maitreya’s mesh Leather Satchel, and Mandala’s Takara Buddha bangles all in black. I went with Maitreya’s Radical Boots in Suede Sand.  I love these boots, it’s hard to take them off other than to switch colors.  I’m wearing a new mesh hair style from Vanity Hair, Cuchi has two versions, all over color, and streaked.  I’m wearing it in brown with platinum streaks, they’re subtle with this color choice. I’m also wearing Mandala’s Nail Palette 1 Medium.  They have a hud, which lets you choose various nail shapes, like pointed which is a nice vintage vamp look, square cut, oval cut, and more.  It also lets you choose  70 different polishes, and even mix different manicure styles on different nails.

Fall Day

Fall Day

I recently teleported around the grid looking for some signs of autumn, and found a group of New York themed regions.  I had to stop and take some photos, and chose MidState New York.  If you are looking for a location to use for a location shot, definately drop in, and explore.  I’m wearing a new release from L’Aph, a lovely mesh dress, which really gives off a vintage feel.  I really like the wide cuff collar, and cuffs, bonus that they contrast, plus a contrast hem to really make the design dramatic.  The texture is a yummy damask style, and is available in a variety of colors, with even two shades of red! I accessoried my look with the also very classic, very vintage look of the Yummy pearl sets which are currently at Collabor8.  I layered 2 necklaces from the Tiffany Set and the Jennifer Set, to really glam it up, along with matching pearl studs from the sets,and Zaara’s Kashiti Bobble ring in pearl. I layered Mimikri’s Fox Fur Stole over the top for the perfect posh look. I finished off with this sophisticated mesh updo from Ploom which is also new, along with some older favorites like my Pow Pumps from LeLutka, and the Estelle Bag from Orta.

Memories

Morning Memories Sepia

I’m wearing two new items from Ploom, the mesh Cynthia hair, which is available in the store, and the Lea Libra skin from the Zodiac event.  I love the eye makeup, it’s a fun playful look.  I’m also wearing a partial mesh slipdress from PaperDoll, which is available at Fair.  It’s available in a variety of fun playful colors. I went with my L’Aph ballet flats, which a really nicely textured mesh flats, in a duo tone of Green and Camel.

Trompe Loeil - Morning Light Cupboard Bed Rose Tint Variations

Trompe Loeil recently released the mesh Morning Light Cupboard Bed at Fair.  It’s a new event, and for more information check out the blog.  This bed, has several shelves for decorating.  I’ve decorated the interior with some of my most favorite little items, many limited editions, and items no longer available, so I won’t list them.  The bed comes in two versions, filled with single, and couples PG animations/poses, and Adult.  There are several different choices of bed linen textures available.  The outside wood frame and the inner wood surround are in a light grey wood texture, and since the item is modifiable, makes it a great item to select for your home as you can tint it to match your mood, and decor. As you can see, tinting adds a nice unique touch, you can go from cute to dramatic. Here’s a variety of ways I tinted two versions, the Rose, and Blue Thistle. If you are unfamiliar with tinting, please see the end of my post for a quick tutorial. I’m using a different sit pose that isn’t included in the bed.

How to Tint Prims

Firstly, sorry some of my text and photos are small or blurry.  You can click through to see larger sizes on flickr, or follow along with the text instructions below.

1. Go into Edit Mode on an object, by right clicking it, and selecting Edit from the menu.

2. The Edit Window should be elongated, if you have a small window, look for a MORE button, or the thin bar at the bottom with a “v”, and click it.

3. Your default look in Edit Mode (unless you have recently been in the other edit mode tabs) is the General Tab, to the right of it is the Textures Tab – click it.

4. On the top part of your window there will be a small box with text: Edit Linked Parts , click this to select individual prims of your object to tint.

5. You now see your texture editing options.  If you were going to put a different texture on this item you would drag the texture to the texture box or click it to browse for it in your inventory.  We’re tinting, so we will use the Color Box instead. Click the prim you wish to tint, then click the Color Box.

6. Make sure your Apply Now box is check-marked. Now, your Color Picker window is open, and you can see the rainbow color box, you can move your cursor around to find different colors.  The bar on the right lets you slide  up and down the shade for each color.  The color you are currently using is displayed in the larger color box, if you like this color and want to use it on other prims you can drag it to your color bar.

7. Click the ok to close the color picker window, and then x to close the edit window.  Or select another prim to tint, then close.

Miel’s Fifty Linden Friday item was the mesh Jersey Top and Skirt.  Shown here is the top in the bright pack, which includes a color change hud with 6 colors. I layered underneath Boom’s Ever High-Waisted Skirt in Neutral.

I accessorized with Milk Motion’s mesh studded clutch, which is currently available at The Arcade.  The Arcade is a gatcha event, and you can find more information about them on their blog  The Arcade. I’m also wearing League’s Wanderer set, which features tons of options as to number of strands, and the number of discs or not in the jewelry.  My Maitreya Radical boots are from the suede set, and I love this shade.

Amacci recently released several hair styles, one of which is Lousia, shown here in Brown Auburn.  It’s a pretty softly waved long bob, with parts pulled back to the crown.  It’s soft, and has nice movement.  L’Aph recently released the mesh Isolde dress shown here in green and beige. It’s a cute tunic length dress, and I chose to style it as a tunic dress.  Great attention to detail with the waist ties, and texture.  Shai has also released mesh satchel at the Zodiac event. It’s a great casual tote in a variety of colors, you should check them all out, the denim especially was really cute. Also at Zodiac, Adorkable has released two pose sets, shown here are a few from the Elegant set. I choose some fall colored accessories to pull everything together, My Secret Store’s Orange Dust scarf was a big injection of color for the outfit, as well as accessories from Mandala’s  Takara Oriental Hoozuki set.

TuttiFruitti’s new mesh jeans are so much fun to get dressed in, she has so many prints to choose from.  Here’s a link when I blogged her So Good  print the other day.  Today I’m wearing the Connected print, which is a lovely plant leaf print on black.  The colors reminded me of a calla lily so I worked in some pale green, which the Maitreya Short Trench worked out perfectly for in Asparagus.  I layered the Maitreya Bodysuit in White underneath.  I’m wearing Celoe’s Clement Necklace in Shine, it’s a mesh chunky rock necklace that is available in a variety of shades, great for dressing up in.  I chose to go with my Milano Slingbacks in Black Python from YS&YS, they feature prim feet.  My hair is Wasabi Pills’ Veronica, which is a really soft pretty style.  Great for anything from casual to formal wear. Big thanks to Sasy Scarborough who was itching to take photos for taking my photo.

It’s texture changeable, and was featured at a previous Collabor8 event.  It’s bright and happy, and when worn with the new mesh jeans in the So Good print from TuttiFruitti reminds me of my childhood.  (My living room was turquoise and yellow back then.)  It’s a happy outfit, and I found all of the new mesh jeans from TuttiFruitti in happy prints, they’re a brand new release so you should run and grab some demos. I’m wearing Maitreya’s mesh Cupio Top in turquoise and their Esprit XTD shoes.  I’ve kept my accessories simple with a cute canary yellow purse from fri.day, and matching canary yellow nails from Izzie’s available via color change hud, look for her Spring/Summer 2012 Classic nails.

Autumn is so close I can’t stand it anymore being summer anymore.  I’ve been regularly checking the temperatures in the north for a week waiting for it to dip enough that I can happily begin wearing warmer clothing.  Yes, I know, it’s Second Life, I can do whatever season I like, but still, my mind is trapped in fall.   I’ve pulled together an outfit for a fall day, focusing on rich colors, layering, and the feel of the fabrics involved.  Emery has done a recent fall mesh release, this mesh skirt is from an earlier release, but still within the color palate she’s using, and perfect for fall.  It features color blocked vibrant tones on a suede mesh mini.  I paired it with Celoe’s mesh Lyn Cardigan in Tamarillo, it’s a great deep red tone.  I’m wearing their Cairo boots, which I think have the perfect type of heel for this style of boot, I like the color, texturing, and the fit.  I’ve layered Izzie’s Overknee Socks in dark red over my sheer tights from The Strand which feature a leaf pattern. Perfect for fall.  I accessorized with LeLutka’s Mitu bag in Tan, and jewelry from a new to me store called Amorous, and Maxi Gossamer’s.

LeLutka just released new three new hair styles, Blake is one of them.  It’s a great long mesh hair, with soft waves at the bottom.  It’s available in a fades pack as well, and LeLutka has introduced a pack of Naturals from the other packs totaling 8 shades inside!

No hiding the fact I like purple in this outfit.  I really like the new mesh Jessy Studded Shorts from Erratic, they are available in a variety of colors, but I really like their dip dyes.  Great textures, detail, and fit.  Wasabi Pills also has a new release, at FaMESHed.  Noriko is the cutest mesh blunt cut bob, with color changeable barrettes via HUD.  Another current event item is the mesh Half Tucked Tee from Tres Blah I’m wearing.  It’s currently available at Collabor88, but not for long, as they are due for a new round soon.  Grab it while you can, at a great price, or visit their main afterwards.   I finished off my purple lust with Maitreya’s mesh Alexa Wedges.  I’m wearing all the accessories it seems, from tons of stores,  Boom’s cute Take It Easy Tote, which is available in a variety of designs, this one being the Bar Code.  I’m wearing Yummy’s Mixtape Necklace, and Hodgepodge Beaded Bracelets, with a necktie from Coco Designs.  This necktie is part of the Puff Sleeves Top in Yellow, available in their discounted department located on the top floor of the store.

Sharkhunt

L'APH

Couldn’t help naming this post Sharkhunt when it (Way Out West’s Sharkhunt) came on my Last.FM radio just as I opened a new post, which I thought was slightly humorous as I’m wearing a cute seahorse and coral necklace from Glow, which inspired my color choices, and my coral prop.   This necklace really caught my eye for the color, Glow is really great at making statement piece jewelry, this one is currently available at The Dressing Room.

I styled it with my new mesh Mia pants from L’Aph which I am excited to say is Aphrodite Outlander‘s new store.  Many shoppers remember as  Aphrodite Creations, and Perse.  She’s using standard sizing, and I like the stitched seams down the sides, and the darker color on the waistband, which if you layer a shirt under, makes a nice band of color.  The Mia pants feature three styles of cuffs, long, flare, and short.  They are available in a variety of colors.  She’s also stocked her store with 3 cute mesh dresses, and 3 mesh styles of shoes.  I’m wearing her mesh Leather Heels in red, which come in eight colors. I like the texture, the leather seems a soft leather, with lots of soft nubby detail, with a nice high pointed heel.  You should come join her update group and pick up the group gift, a cute pair of ballerina flats pictured below.

L'Aph Ballerina Flats - Gift

I picked up more color to contrast with my blue pants with Zaara‘s Isis shirt.  I love this shirt, and with mesh now, it’s great for layering under cardigans and jackets, as I have done here with LeLutka‘s Flow Cardigan.  It’s on layer and sculpted,  I love how the ruffles could almost be waves for my seahorse.  The perfect bag for this outfit was only Indyra Originals Marina Tote in Live Coral, which features  charms dangling from the straps. By the way if you haven’t been to Indyra’s lately you need to stop by and check out her accessories, to die for!  My hair is a new hair style from Ploom, called Yuri from a weekend release featuring another two hair styles, so you have to go Ploom! It’s also available with a tipped version. My skin is from Ricielli, and I picked it up during their Glamorous Hunt, find all 20 diamonds in Ricielli Mesh).
