In The Sunshine

Erratic recently released the Cory Oversized Sweater at FaMeshed.  A great mesh sweater in a variety of patterns from plain, color blocks, stripes.  Grab some demos, each one is fabulous.  I’m wearing two in this post, a plain purple, which was really really purple, I love it, and Color Block 1, full of deep bright colors.  I love the detailed cuffs, and the zipper in the back.  With the sweater in Look 1 I’m wearing Emery’s mesh Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans- Tie Dye.  A nice smooth tight fit, nice shape, love the design.  I accessorized with matching purple mesh Alexa Wedges from Maitreya. Twin Skinny Belt from Aoharu, Celoe’s mesh Clement necklace, and a Patent Leather Purse from Modern Gypsy.

In Look 2, I’ve styled the sweater with a mesh highwaist mini skirt from Richielli, in a bright orange and ethnic print.  I played with all the colors by using my new mesh Valencia jewelry from Gossamer Jewelry currently at FaMESHed.  All the pieces have preset color combinations in them, just click and a menu drops down. They also featured various lengths of necklace, and multiple strands.  I used more color by adding a great clutch from Osakki, they’re currently closed, but plan to reopen soon featuring skin and accessories.  Can’t wait until they do! Check your inventory to see if you already own this cute clutch.  II’m wearing a new mesh hair from Ploom called Trista, it’s a perky ponytail, that’s available in a solid one over color, or dipped.  I’m wearing Maitreya’s Salience Socks & Tights Liquorice and a new skin from Amacci called Liane.  Liane in bronze is a very tanned look, and I really like the abdominals on this. I wore matching lip tattoo lipstick, and went with a blush from her Blush pack.

Look 3 features a new mesh shirt from Boom.  It’s a cute cuffed cropped tee, available in a variety of colors, and graphics. Check out some demos at the mainstore. I’m wearing it layered over a on layer tank from Jane, and with Ricielli’s ETA Jeans in White Leopard.  I’ve accessorized with a belt from Bukka, which features color change leather, and rings.  Hard to see as look 2’s arm is around my arm but I’m wearing YS&YS’s Naala bangles, and their gold hoop earrings from their Afrika set.  I went my Maitreya mesh Radical Boots in chocolate suede, I love how soft they look.  My hair is new from Wasabi Pills, called Izumi, featuring two cute mesh thin long mesh pigtails. I finished off the look with the oh so cute collar recently released from Pididdle.  It’s mesh, and available in a variety of colors/textures.

In Look 4 I am wearing the denim version of Boom’s mesh Twenty-Three Tee.  The Valencia set from Gossamer that’s also shown in Look 2.  This time I’m wearing the bangles, and a multiple strand option. I’m wearing Miel’s recently released long mesh Jersey Skirt, and SLink’s Suede Wrap Wedges, color changed to match my top.  My mesh tote is from The Secret Store, and I took all my color cues from it. It’s a happy, brightly colored print. To offset this summery look, I went with Amacci’s Liane in bronze skin again, adding Glitter Eyeshadow from Izzie’s, and Izzie’s leather waist belt.  My hair is also from Amacci, and new.  Sira’s a really cool pony, with color changeable highlights, and band via HUD, and worn with a matching hairbase.  I was really excited to see this hairstyle, and can’t wait to wear it more.

Corporate Chic – Whimsy Winx – Look #1

Common questions asked inworld are where to find buisness attire.   I have put together, a challenge to my fellow fashion community enthusiasts, to help create numerous looks appropriate for the office environment.  Both men and women can participate, please remember to not feature the following…suggestive clothing…this isn’t about an affair at the office, or your managerial wardrobe at Hot Topic, no wings, antlers, elves, sorry I love you all but lets keep this strictly business!  Scroll to the bottom of the post for more information!

My first look:
Corporate Chic - Whimsy Winx - Look # 1

I love this look, I could be the editor of a magazine, on my way to meet with the board, or lunch with the girls I do charity work with.  Old school, classic, chic.  Since it’s a virtual world…I can get away easily with the height of the heel.  This outfit is by Aoharu, it’s quintessential “twin set”.  Although the shift dress, and jacket are sold as separates.  This is a great way to get a look fast, and the dress easily coordinates with other jackets, and the look can be worn year round.  This look is also an example of a full “outfit” for the challenge,  as opposed to mix and matched separates.

I couldn’t do a series on my favorite jeans, without covering some of my favorite denim skirts.  I have consolidated all of these together in one post featuring the same tops, and accessories.   This is a very fun, casual look.  The sculpted Aoharu denim shirt is worn over my Bandana dress from Tuli, that is getting double duty as a halter.  The Aoharu shirt comes with the belt, but I am also wearing another belt from DeLa’s Daisy skirt, which I think plays up my bracelets from YourShape.  Together they suit the Bandana print, with the denim.  My boots are Bax’s prestige boots in red,  they come with variations in shade, boot cuff, metal finishing.  I love to wear them with denim, and have blogged them previously with them.

The skirts are from a wide variety of stores, BettePage, LeLutka, Maitreya, Muism, and Emery.   The angled skirt is Muisms, and comes in this longer style, and straight across shorter length.  I love the movement on it.  LeLutkas has a lot of structure to it without sculpts.  I love the denim textures, and the length.  Maitreya, and Emery’s both feature sculpted skirt parts, short in length and good distressed denim look.   BettePage’s is another midlength with good movement, and distressing.   I am wearing Tuli’s Gina skin from a previous run at The Dressing Room, and my hair is a new release from Mirai Style.  She’s has 3 new hairs in the front of the store,  I have no idea when they were released but they still say NEW.  ;P    To see which skirt is which, click through to my flickr photo, and hover your mouse over the image to see the name of the stores.
