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.

Overgrowth

Overgrowth

Helena Stringer of The Stringer Mausoleum has created this stunning hair called Overgrowth, that is unisex and comes in two varieties-petite, and massive.  I am wearing the massive, with the separate attachment included called the Mega Firestorm Flower.  The hair comes with two separately attachable flowers Firestorm Flower, and Maneater, in both Mega and Petite sizes. The hair is available in a number of colors.  This hair will be available as part of the Crazy Hair Hunt.  The hunt begins March 31st, and features 65 participating stores that specially created unique hair in the Flora & Fauna theme for this year.  Participating stores are not hair stores, but stores that feature other items from home & garden, to building aids. The love of building, theme, and imagination is the key here.  Check out the CHH Flickr Group, to see more hunt hairs!

I recently blogged the new leggings from Maitreya, and I still can’t take them off.  Shown here are from the Shine packs, in Black, and White in the couture edition that’s included in purchase (it means it has a pony wedge heel attached).  I’m also wearing Mimikri‘s Dusk Leather Bustier’s in Black, and White.

My skin is from Idiosyncrasy, only $95L and is currently available at My Attic until March 31st.  See my notes below.  It’s vintage inspired and I love how precise the lips are. Check out the My Attic Flickr Group to see more items at the event.

Strigidae & Tytonidae

Strigidae & Tytonidae

The past two weeks have been full of fashion, and great finds.  Maitreya recently did a mesh release, shown here are their leggings from that.  Buy by the color or color/fabric pack, and you get not only the leggings, but the ‘couture’ leggings that feature this pony wedge shoe that is combined, which is great if you wanna throw them on and go, and not hunt for shoes.  Love it! The texturing on them is incredibly well done, and the form they leave you with is this amazing butt.  No lie! I’m wearing a new find from Happy with them a tunic dress shirt called Uptown.  I love the sleeves, and cuffs, and how it drapes over my hips.

My skin is from Idiosyncrasy, only $95L and is currently available at My Attic until March 31st.  See my notes below.  It’s vintage inspired and I love how precise the lips are. Check out the My Attic Flickr Group to see more items at the event.

My hair is a stunning Crazy Hair Hunt item created by Gumi’s Flower Shop.  It fully frames the head with a nest of sticks, and twigs, with two owls perched on top. The Crazy Hair Hunt begins March 31st, and features 65 participating stores that specially created unique hair in the Flora & Fauna theme for this year.  Participating stores are not hair stores, but stores that feature other items from home & garden, to building aids. The love of building, theme, and imagination is the key here.  Check out the CHH Flickr Group, to see more hunt hairs!  Psst!  I made hair too! Will blog it tomorrow or so.

Halloween 2010 Look of the Day

I pulled together a couple of everyday looks for Halloween. Mostly based around Eclectic Apparel ‘s Calypso dress. She did a Halloween themed set as well for some added fun. The hair is fun, and from Ploom, and quite a deal, as is the pumpkin filled with treats from Albero’s Gatcha festival going on. The Sylfie’s shoes are oldies but goodies, all prim wonders. The Idiosyncrasy skin is a Halloween deal, and was/is available for $10L, currently she has another in store with a cool zipper under the eye. Enjoy. Happy Halloween!

Idiosyncrasy @ Vanity Universe Skin Fair

Idiosyncrasy - Mia Exotic - Body

Idiosyncrasy debuted a lovely dark toned skin at Vanity Universe’s Skin Fair called Mia Exotic.  This skin is darker than your average tan, with juicy lush lips, light make up, and a dusting of freckles across the nose.  The freckles themselves are quite a piece of work, as anyone with freckles knows, Ashia Tomsen was spot on!  Excellent seam work, shading reflects a fit physique with six-pack abs.  A variety of makeups, with the focus being the lips, and light eye makeup.

Idiosyncrasy - Mia Exotic - Make Up

Shown with a superbly designed bikini called Esha from Zaara. Vibrant and patterned, it’s also available in several colors, and some chic neutrals.  To match my swimwear I chose my Coquette heels from Kalnins, scripted color change, and re-sizeable.  Exile‘s Angelica Remix hair is a wonderful sexy hair, full of static and flexi parts, shown here in chocolate.

Idiosyncrasy’s skins are featured at Vanity Universe Skin Fair this year.   Charity skin selection purchases will go to Care International, an international charity devoted fighting against global poverty.  Read more about the charity here.  Donation kiosks will be available on the sim.

Beetlebones & Sexy In Pink

Last week Sasy dragged me out of my house and over to the Designer United II event.  The theme they had worked on was “the Crow”.  Many offerings of feathered themed or feathered clothes and accessories, and most in black.  I bought quite a lot of it, and regret not buying all of it.  I really enjoyed all the feathered theme clothes.  Design wise so much can be done inworld with an event like this when you get people together to have some fun.  Design challenges should be done more often, and I beg designers to really keep their heads up, and be quick to sign up and participate for ALL of them regardless of whats going on.  I am sure you have noticed feathers all over the feed as bloggers showcased their shopping finds there.

 

Beetlebones & Sexy In Pink

 

I paired my top from Beetlebones called Shake Your Tail Feathers in Gunmetal, with a tutu skirt from the new releases at Sexy in Pink.  The tank has a feathered attachment for your shoulder which takes it from casual to chic, and I have played with that attachment enough now it goes with so many other clothing items.  If you have it, try it! Sexy in Pink did a new release this past week, with skirts, stockings, tops, and belts.  Shown here is the tutu skirt in pink, with their Punk Silver Stud Belt, and Wide Net fishnet stockings.   It’s a fun flirty skirt,  a wardrobe builder, and available in several colors.  I had to wear my Animosity boots from SiniStyle with, I don’t wear them enough considering how long I lusted after them.  These are a great boot, and could seriously hold their own in a mosh pit, as they are sexy and versatile.  I am so happy to have these awesome gloves from LeLutka, designed by Marni Grut, who was recently added to the design team there this fall.  Sporty and chic, they are sexy gloves, with great texture work.  I chose my perky Natasha hair from ETD in black, with my Mia Pinup Skin from Idiosyncrasy, to complete a fun stylish look.  The make up works perfect with this style of hair.

Idiosyncrasy & Savoir Faire Shapes

Idiosyncrasy
Idiosyncrasy - Lucy - Ultra Pale

Idiosyncrasy’s Lucy skin is a sampling I had from Skin/Shape Expo ’09.  Lucy shown here is a new tone release in Ultra Pale. True to its name its a very pale, delicate skin, but not so pale that it washes you out.  It’s soft, with lovely shading.  It features the cutest little beauty mark on the stomach.  I love the one on the nose, making it a nice flirty feature.  The make ups I have shown here are cute beyond belief, but check out the  larger close up one.  The everyday style of makeup shows you just how lovely the features are, the soft contours, and the barely blushed cheeks.  Other make ups in the line are fun, and the range is full of variety. Click here for a teleport to main store, but until October 1oth you will only be able to pick up the Ultra Pale shade of Lucy at the Expo, after which they will be moved to her main.

Idiosyncrasy & SavoirFaireShapes
Idiosyncrasy & Savoir Faire Shapes

Idiosyncrasy’s lips are lush, and enhanced by my choice in wearing a new shape.  I usually only wear my personal shape, but I made an exception with the offerings at the expo.  I was very impressed with Savoir Faire Shapes as a shape store in general.  When I was a new resident I had no clue how skin and shapes work together to create a unique look.  I would buy shapes and get upset that the skin I wore with them didn’t look the way I wanted.  I blamed the skin designers.  After I acquired a shape I liked that worked with the skins I liked, I realized this.   You can fill a room full of women in the same skin, with different shapes and they will all look different.  Finding the right mix is trial and error, but so worth grabbing all the skin and shape demos you can find and playing a bit.  Once you find the look you like, or close to it, you can begin modding the skin to suit your esthetics to height, mouth etc.  This way you will get a unique look that is all you.   Many shape designers have modifiable shapes for this purpose.  I recommend never buying a no mod shape.  EVER!    While shopping at the expo I noticed Savoir Faire Shapes and really liked the offering of shapes they had.  I felt their variety was contemporary in what people are currently looking for.  The shape maker  Hybrid Ansar worked very well on the faces providing some of the latest sought after features, while keeping everything nicely in balance.  For these photos I am wore her Lola shape.

Blacklisted - ETD - Curio
Blacklisted - ETD - Curio

I am wearing another cute lingerie set from Blacklisted.  Shown without the stockings that come with it in sheer and solid, I have on the Feverdemi, and Cheeky panties.  The set is called  Be Starin’.   I found that my ETD Starley pumps in Pink were a perfect match.  I love how they pick up the pinks in the Lucy skin.  I am wearing Curio’s Babycakes hair in Light Brown, a fun doubled backed loose bunned pigtail style.
