In The Sunshine

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.

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. Vanity Hair recently released the mesh Briton College hairstyle.  It’s worn with a hair base and sits back on the crown, with blunt cut length. 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.

Maddening Shroud

Whimsy Green

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.

Hair Fair 2012 – SLink

SLink Hair Fair 2012

SLink released 3 lovely mesh styles at Hair Fair 2012.  A gorgeous soft french twist, a lovely soft braid called Mica, and this short style called Nicolette.  Nicolette is angled nicely, and I how short is is on the side. The french twist is soft, draping to the side of the face.  Mica is a cute braid, with whisps here and there, and loose tendrils that have escaped here and there.  These three styles are currently available only at Hair Fair 2012 until July 29th, after that they will be available at SLink’s main store.

SLink Hair Fair 2012 Composite

Erratic just released a mesh leather dress that’s hot, well textured, and available in a variety of colors.  I liked the form, the collar, and the thick look to the leather. I’ve paired them with Maitreya‘s mesh couture leggings in oil-disco, and accessorized with some favorites from Mandala.  I’m wearing new mesh eyes from Izzie’s called Deep Dark Eyes.  As you can guess they feature of deep tones and I like how deep even the teal shade I am wearing is.  They’re easy to wear, barely any adjusting, I only made my iris’ a bit smaller I went with 1.20 on the horizontal and diagonal as a personal preference, even 1.1 would have been perfectly fine. They also come with a layer version.

June in Zuma Hills

I’m wearing a mesh dress from Celoe, which is available at Culture Shock 2012.  It’s a lovely mesh frock available in a number of fashionable trendy colors. I particularly like the silkiness of the fabric, and the lovely gathered bodice. I’m wearing Adam n Eve‘s Amaris skin, in natural with the provided small freckles optional layer. and SLink‘s Sarah hair in caramel, another mesh item.  I have contrasted against the turquoise shade with accessories with warmer tones, like Zaara‘s Balini Necklace in Carnelian-Cyan, her Kashiti Bobble ring, and clutch purse from DeLa in Orange, Ison‘s color block pumps in a warm cognac, and Izzie’s latest release – Spring/Summer 2012 Classic Nails in Tangerine.  Izzie’s is also participating in culture shock, check out her booth there, to see cute tri-color tops she has.

June

I am so over the moon with these nails, as I was having a problem finding just the right shade of nails to compliment and contrast with much of my newer purchases this season, so I approached Izzie Button to consider adding them. They are exactly what I was looking for! I’m completely excited about fashion this year do to the plentiful offerings by many designers featuring the 2012 Pantone color trends.  Seriously I am in heaven, and never have been more excited to hit the stores, and get dressed.  They have me happily wearing orange.  I’m in shock.

My location photo was taken just outside the Zuma Hills prefab from Trompe Loeil available at Culture Shock 2012, This modern, open plan home is made of mesh, and features a lovely pool, many built in features like fireplaces, art, kitchen, lighting, and cypress outside the front entrance. Also shown in my photo are Trompe Loeil’s Zuma Hills barstools in the kitchen area, and couch, chairs, and plants in the living room area.  I’ve used aDORKable poses for this pose, but not the specific ones they have available at Culture Shock, I plan on using these for another post, be sure to check out their booth there.

Somewhere between Driftwood and Bellflower

Somewhere between Driftwood and Bellflower

After a long day of working on Hair Fair 2012 details, I had so much fun getting dressed today with a variety of new and old pieces.  R.icielli just released a collection of mesh items.  Handbags, jumpsuits, skirts, and tops in a large variety of colors.  You have to see the high-waist leather skirts!  Here I have paired one of their minitops in Pearl with a new skirt from Boom available at Collabor88.  The top is made for high-waisted skirts available in the collection, and I think for many of my high-waisted bottoms it should work well.  I was even able to wear it with this cute skirt from Boom, by also using my League vintage chiffon belt.  I heavily layered 3 necklaces, by starting with my most recent purchase of the Agate Slice Necklace from Yummy, which I also picked up at Collabor88.  It’s a chunky pendant on a thin long chain, and I loved the added gems.  I’ve been all over the place shopping this weekend, from Collabor88 to the new releases at The Dressing Room Blue where I picked up this cute hairstyle called Paige from Exile.

By the way, Hair Designers, Hair Fair 2012 applications being accepted!  But hurry the deadline is the 21st of March.  That’s only a few days, and spaces are limited!!  If you know a hair designer that might be interested, please help spread the word!

Celebration

I recently assembled this party attire for a celebration.  I wanted something somewhat youthful, fun, and full of life, and I think this dress from Mimikri was perfect.  I love that my favorite pair of heels from LeLutka in Soft Blush were a perfect match.  I went with League’s Raven Necklace for jewelry, I really love this piece as it reminds me of a pair of antique earrings I want in real life.

September Breeze

dress 3-vert

Sasy and I went exploring at a place she found. Bahia features prefabs, home decor, and furniture, across two lovely sims.  Worth checking out. Sasy blogged them here.  On our trip I wore this great long knit mesh dress from Jane, that I totally love cause its long, and in mesh it’s so fab.  Looking for a pain free transition to mesh?  Try the Firestorm 3.0.1  (Firestorm-Beta-Mesh).  I’ve been using it on the Phoenix setting, and love it to date. Similar layout to V1, layers of V2 and similar icon’d buttons, V3 mesh.

Gion Gibson

Gion Gibson

Frou Frou released a new hair, which made me pull out some items I’d been looking to pair with something as interesting.  The hair is called Gion Gibson, I see the inspiration here, and went with my Haori Calme jacket from Tomoto. I picked it up months ago after wandering around some stores that had been featured in To One Lounge.  The hair is a full updo, and very large up front, featuring locks hanging down here and there.   I bet this looks great with mermaid skirt gowns, and even ball gowns.  I mixed and match accessories using the Fishy Strawberry Leather Geisha Belt for a fun look over my Leather Dress in Gray from MichaMi, I added my Sinra jewelry set from Mandala, and my fun K. I. A shoes from LeLutka in Night.  All in all it was fun playing with some old, new, and waiting to be worn items to create a look around the hair.

Retro Wasabi

Wasabi Retro
Wasabi Pills has released a number of new hair styles since Hair Fair 2011. Shown here in a style post is a cute one called Pompon.  Featuring color/texture change headband, ribbon, knot, and hair bands.  It’s a cute look, I love the bangs.  Also shown are Roy which is a nice unisex style, and I think Thor does well for girls as well.   MissAllSunday Lemon, the hair designer behind Wasabi Pills brand, had many requests for a variation of her Kiki hair, and released Kiki Act II. I’m wearing a fun top called Vicky from artilleri which features a variety of different ‘patches’ shown here with Cherry.  I paired it with an early summer release from LeLutka, the Caprica jeans, shown here with the 3/4 cuff option.  Bukka is a cute store I love to find new things in, shown here are the Double Ring Belt, in this amazing color, it’s full of options even color change loops to match your clothes. I’ve pulled out a favorite style of purse from Celestial Studios.  Celestial Studios was around for years for those didn’t know. They were a popular place to go for skins, eyes, and clothes.  They closed earlier this summer, and will be missed. If you have their items, brush them off, give them an airing they are still great. Lately I have been using alot of their babydoll dresses with my Bloom avatar.

Wasabi Pills Recent Releases

YS&YS’s new release is the Milano Slingback, a sexy slingback shown here in Cherry White.  These are cute, I love the various patterns and colors. These are prim feet, and be sure to remember your best tricks for tinting as they do not feature any prim work to hide the attachment point.  Remember when tinting you will never get a perfect match, just very close to it. For these I recommend being sure to size them right to obscure the area. I sized down about -5 to hide the join. When tinting for street wear (as opposed to blog wear) I like to use the default light settings or a standard Caliah windlight setting. The majority of people on the grid are using default or a Caliah windlight variation. I no longer wear face lights.  Together these help assure me that most people most of the time are going to see me with matching feet.  It’s not fool proof, it all depends on what someone else’s default light settings are, and if there are lights around.  Who cares when they match on my screen ;P!

YSYS HUD

Many people aren’t sure how to go about tinting feet with just using a color picker, for those who aren’t sure I have taken a shot of the color picker on the YS&YS HUD, and circled the area I used to sample colors from.  This area, as well as below into the greyish areas is great for finding various skin tones.  Just use the slider on the right to move between light and dark after choosing.  Play with it a bit.

Hair Fair 2011 - Tangles

Tangles released five hair styles at Hair Fair 2011.  Each features a hair base to match.  Her textures are all hand drawn by herself, and for budding hair designers she has full perm textures available at her store.  I love the crimped effect designers have been rolling out this year, Tangles has made a fun crimped do.  Her pulled back afro tight style is great, the hair base really works well with it. Fun flexi dos, for the flexi lovers out there.

Hair Fair 2011 - The Strand

The Strand released three hair styles for Hair Fair 2011, Last Stand, Polo, and Buttons.  I can’t wait for fall so I can pair up my Buttons with a cozy sweater, its nicely textured and extremely cute. Polo is a lovely addition, I imagine this pool side with my gold bikini and a hot guy, and Last Stand is stunning, perfect for chic suits, historical wear, and cosplay.  How lucky are we to get three hat styles at once!  BTW Reel Expression is having a 50% off sale, they will be closing eventually no date set.

Can you hear the drums Fernando?

Fernando II

I love military gear, when I was a teen my biggest fashion score was discovering my fathers army duffel, packed with button up army shirts, and an army parka.  They in my opinion at the time, went perfectly with my collection of old flannel shirts from my grandfather, and my precious boots.  I was very pleased to see this year is packed with military looks.  I snagged this awesome Charlie Jacket in Green from LeLutka layering it over this cute tiered frock from Whippet & Buck.  The leggings from Zaara and new boots from Lassitude & Ennui screamed to be included.

Le Look Osakki!

Osakki @ Le Look

Osakki who I have been bingeing on the past couple of posts such as Osakki Berries, and With Love Plaid, has just released a new collection, and a new location at Le Look!  It’s a stunning looking store.  The designer Kaysha Piers ‘s work this time around has continued with her structured look in form, but from soft sweaters to military bodysuits, and jackets.  It’s a wondrous, contemporary mix of old, and new styles, with fun twists. It’s very hip, very now, and totally Second Life fashion. I especially love her for her variety of leggings.

Osakki - Assassin - Blood

One of my favorites right away was this eye-catching blazer in blood-red, with coordinating corset, leggings, and gloves, called Assassin.  It featured two types of shoulder epaulets.  As I mentioned before she has a variety of leggings,  I was really taken with the fish net leggings I blogged in With Love Plaid.   I have worn them for over a week, so I am quite happy she’s created even more, and hope she just turns these out left and right.  I am sooo into this right now.    [Osakki Mainstore Teleport] Check out my awesome new hair from Exile, this windblown hair is great.  I am in love with browns and auburns and Kavar nailed it.  I love the way it drapes from behind as well.

I also wanted to share that Sasy Scarborough of SasyPants (lol), has created a flickr group of stock images for Second Life users.  Bloggers, photographers, virtual artists, photo pile up enthusiasts are sure to find something interesting to use in this group that is growing and growing.  If you have a love of taking photos, and are always snapping a photo out on location, consider submitting it to this group.  All work submitted is to be used Non Commercially.  You can’t use it to make textures, backgrounds, etc.  You can use it as the background of your store ad, or blog post photo, or pile up, etc.  The group has a lot of potential, so please consider making some backgrounds for others, or use it as your resource for backgrounds.  Check it out Second Life Stock Images, and check out an example of how I used a photo.

PLEASE REMEMBER this is NOT a pile up group, so if you submit a photo like a head shot, it can then be used in any manner non commercially by others.  There are groups for pile ups, this is where you get the background you want for it.  Just sayin’  don’t complain when you are the next spoke person for diaper fetish group. Mmmhmm.

Gear Drop

Fashion Gear Drop Off Boss

So….I totally was off the wall angry yesterday…I bought shirts.  <insert lengthy rant about shirts that don’t  cover midriffs, that are designed by style to do so, that have made me so angry I couldn’t blog you in a look of the day, so I am blogging someone else rant>

I logged in today thinking of an outfit as GEAR. Fashionista gear that dropped off a boss, and put this together…cause I am cool like that – shit matches.  Enjoy…btw Royal Blue…Lovely Marni has set up an outlet at her store. Stop by!
