Celoe’s Mirage

Celoes Mirage

Celoe will be doing a major release soon, I did a sneak peek yesterday of the Maruca Coat/Dress, and a link to Sasy’s post of the Maru coat. Today I’m giving you a sneak peek of Celoe’s Mirage Tunic, and Chardonnay Pants. I love the designs they used on the Mirage Tunic. It’s very vintage, and bohemian. I like that I can easily wear the tunic over the Chardonnay Pants, without resorting to wearing a large top and smaller bottom. The Mirage Tunic is available in 8 colors, and the Chardonnay Pants come in 5 colors. I’ve accessorized my look with Mandala’s Omochi Earrings, and Bracelet in Silver. I’ve also used my Rio Clutch from Osakki, which is dead on perfect for this outfit. Osakki is in process of reopening her store. My Ilaida Mojri shoes from Zaara, are a great addition, these pair are in black, they feature menu change quilted fabric tops, in 12 colors, and banding/shoe liner in Gold or Silver.

My makeup is blend of two eyeshadows that come with my Cassandra Skin from Izzie’s. You can create a variety of effects, and shades by layering eye makeups. Shown here are the base skin’s eyes, the blue and teal eyeshadows on their own, and then layered versions. The first being teal, then ‘add’ as an option instead of wearing, the blue. In my look, I created a near match to the teal on my tunic by first wearing/adding the blue eyeshadow, then I “added” the teal. Playing around in your makeups this way can really help you make the most of what’s there, and don’t forget to add in from other skins, or makeup sets. My last photo in the series shows the eyemakeup with LeLutka’s Liquid Liner in black added on top of them.

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.

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.

Mmmhmm.

With Love – Plaid

With Love - Plaid

If you are looking for some great deals this season, and think you missed them all, check out the With Love Hunt that’s ongoing until December 17th.  All items in the hunt are offered for $10L each.   You will have to hunt for them at each location, starting location is at Le Cirque, for hints, and more info join the group.   This Tartan HighWaist Sweater/Dress is from Peqe, and is their With Love Hunt Item.  The plaid and cut is fun, wintery, and stylish.  I loved pairing this with my Ruffled MiniSkirt from Luck, Inc, and the fishnet leggings from a dress from Osakki, mix in the latest release in shoes from Maitreya Gold.  These shoes are full of options, bonus if you buy a fatpack you can get a wider variety of sock colors.  All sock style options of Over the knee, short, and layered included with purchase.  The Paper Couture earrings, and Modern Gypsy’s Studded Leather bag complete the look.  The bag was on full bright, I unchecked the full bright, and added a light grey tint to soften the effect of the studs. Don’t be afraid to mod an item if it’s an option, I could have easily enhanced this look by tinting some parts even a dark red. The hair was a fun combination of MADesigns Eve hairs, with my Amacci hair bases, shown in Dark Brown.

Osakki Berries

Osakki - Berries, Inc

Sounds like an exotic fruit doesn’t it?  Osakki Berries.   I couldn’t resist, and now I’m hungry.  In November the skies become grey, the trees are bare, and I put this together in tribute.  Osakki was a cute store to find, I love this sculpted, sleeveless sweater with hood, and how nicely it goes with the Marla skirt from Berries, Inc.  The Marla skirt, is very well textured, and I love the click change color belt and belt loops.  The buttons are perfection.  I continued the texturing with the Typhoon Boots from Paper Couture, I love the lush suede.
