Let’s Go Surfing

Let's Go Surfing

This was the summer for swimwear. I think I collected it all summer.  Baiastice released their Fringe Micro Bikini in June, and it should be considered a summer staple in your wardrobe. It’s available in a wide range of colors, my two favorite are the emerald green and this coral I’m wearing. There are also fun prints to consider too! It’s hot! My hair is from Olive, and was a release at Hair Fair 2015. It’s long and tousled.

Inside my beach house from Haikei, I’ve got Cheeky Pea’s Boho Dreamtime Hammock as the perfect way to laze away a summer day. This cool fan I picked up from Toiz’s gacha at Shiny Shabby, along with Nomad’s gacha drawers and chest. I love the pillow seat on them and lanterns. Other fun gacha items I’ve picked up this past summer are Dust Bunny’s Fresh Strawberry water, and hanging flower pot. Apple Fall sells the perfect potted fern, you can pick it up on marketplace without having hunt around the store for it. Other gacha goodies from Apple Fall are Neva’s Kitchen Shelf, Retro Radio, and Step Ladder Table.

Honeythief

HoneythiefShiny Shabby had a lot to offer when I went over for a bloggers preview. I played the Nomad & Coquette gacha, and made a second trip over, cause I HAD to have these earrings too. So all my accessories are gacha items from Shiny Shabby, first off short and sweet my turquoise ring is from Aphorism’s gacha. My purse, shoes, and jewelry are all from Nomad & Coquette’s gacha.

Honeythief

I’ve styled my gacha accessories with Baiastice’s Ilery dress currently available at FaMESHed. It’s available in 6 colors, and 6 prints. Each dress also comes with a sheer version of dress included. My hair is a new short cut from LeLutka called Cassie, it also has a hairbase that is truly fantastic. I’m wearing League’s new Milla skin, with LeLutka appliers for my mesh head. This one is Stella, and she’s cute.  My chair and light are from Apt B’s gacha machine at the current round of Kustom 9, and I got an awesome set of geospheres for decor at Fancy Decor.

Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes

Aria is one of the three mesh heads that Lelutka will be releasing in a few days. I’m wearing it in the India tone that’s bundled into the Lelutka hud, as well as the Maitreya Lara body hud. Third from the right, on both huds, it’s the India tone from Glam Affair.

Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes

When released, I recommend getting demos of each, and trying each out with your favorite hairstyles. Many people (and I did too) thought that when mesh body parts came out, especially heads we would lose our ‘uniqueness’. I’ve spent quite a lot of time sitting next to my friends as we try the same heads, with various skins, makeup, and hairstyles. Sometimes we look vaguely related to each other as when you do when wearing the same skin on a default avatar, and sometimes completely different even when everything but the hair, and eyes are the same. How you style yourself is where the you (U) in Unique comes from. Ashia, Sasy, and I wore this head today side by side, and also they’ve blogged it recently as well and we looked completely different. Ever was my favorite up until I had sometimes to get used to this, after trying different hair, etc with it, I could be quite happy with this as well. So take your time, demo, try out different things, lay with your head stretch/length and give yourself to acclimate to one or more.

Heaven's Gonna Burn Your EyesI’m wearing Mina’s latest hairstyle release called Aranka. It’s available starting April 1st at the FaMESHed event. My necklace from the Floral Rocks set of jewelry from League. It has a hud to change the metals and add change a few of the gemstones. I’m also wearing a cardigan and shorts from Baiastice that is currently available at Uber for March, grab it there now, or afterwards in the main store.  It’s available in a wide variety of colors, and the cardigan also has an under-bra version as well. The Los Angeles shoes from Essenz are available in a variety of colors, and she’s added another pack of colors of pastels in a third pack! They were for Fashion For Life and now available at the mainstore.

Whirlwind – Someone’s On the Loose

Life Is Sweet

Life Is SweetThe Liaison Collaborative has opened and Baiastice released their Pignalle Lingerie there. There is a wide variety of colors, and leather or lace enough to suit your preference. I’m wearing the leather version in brown. It comes with panties and two styles of bra. I’ve styled it with some finds from Yasum.  I’m wearing face armor and then this awesome headpiece with wings. They have a hud to change various textures. I’m also wearing Yasum’s Roman Raps shoes, made for the Slink Avatar Enhancement High feet, which include a hud to texture change each piece. Yasum also has hair, it’s tucked in the body shop in a room in the back after the skins. This is the Charlotte hair in chocolate. The hair is a great deal, so snag the fatpack when you go.  My body chain is a gacha from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival made by The Forge.

Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)

Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)So..yeah..my anti-valentine post…to the tune of Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!) by Blu Cantrell. LeLutka released tons of new hair, and by tons I mean 3 hairstyles, and a free fatpack gift hair for the LeLutka group all in new textures! Sheena is the group gift hair, and comes in a fatpack of their new updated tones. I am so in love with the new hair textures. With each hud you pick you get a 8 base colors,  8 roots version, 8 dipped versions, and 8 dipped with roots. So join the group, and try out all the new shades. I really liked this dipped one I’m wearing from the Dim Pack, on the new Kayla style, which has a nice range of muted tones. If you are a naturals pack kinda girl like I am you will also like their Range Pack which features a natural tones variety, along with the as above, roots, dipped, and dipped with roots. The ginger pack was also nice it had 3 of my favorite red tones. They’ve also extended their color range with the Crayon and Vivid, and Void. The new hair is at the landing point at Lelutka.

Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)

I’m also wearing Baiastice’s Cleo Sweater, and Nayra Skirt which are available at Collabor88. I mixed up the colors to keep to the muted tones of my hair, and and offset my Doll V2 Vamp skin from Pink Fuel. While I originally had this skin in peach, I was poking around Mochi’s Flickr page, and saw this tone which is also available for a variety of bodies, and body parts, and had to have it. I’m wearing the Slink version on my Physique body, and Visage Becky head, and Avatar Enhancement Feet & Hands.  I’m also wearing a tiara from Eclectica, assorted jewelry from Maxi Gossamer Jewelry. The items in my photo are a hodge podge assortment of things that were rezzed out at my studio. I initially was going to do a location shot when I realized my shadow settings had reset and instead of fighting with them, I ran back to my studio where I have more control over my lighting. These were all out from unpacking, and so I left them cause I like how they look together. There are some items from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival going on right now, which Sasy, Ashia, and I spent yesterday at picking up some cool things, and a few things I recently picked up here and there.

Sweet Tides

Sweet Tides

Baiastice just released the Kristine Dress at the new Celestial themed round of Uber. This mesh dress comes with a sheer and ‘solid’ version, with solid fabric binding detail on the front of the dress, and a circular motif on the back of the bodice. Included are mesh panties, to be worn underneath the sheer version. It’s a stunning look.  I’ve styled the dress with sYs Designs Hanayo hairstyle. It’s a mesh updo with fan and flowers that are color changeable via HUD. I’ve changed the flowers the black, and the fan deep red.  It was originally released at 2014’s Hair Fair, and is a beautiful stunning updo.

Sweet Tides Compostion

I’m also wearing, YS&YS’s Maddalena skin appliers, on my Slink Visage Becky Head. I picked this up a couple of My Slink Obsessions ago, and love it. I love what she’s done with the eye makeups, and her selection of lipsticks are some of my favs. I’m also wearing Essenz’ Denver Heels, I recently picked these up at her store sale that is currently going on, it should run until February 2nd, with 50% off singles, and 30% off fat packs at her main store only.  Other items in my photos are Y House’s Narcissus Wall from Designers United 4 from way back in 2010. It’s no longer available, so search your inventory to see if you might still own it.
