The lovely Kit is one of those generous people I mentioned on my side welcome, and she gave me this set and the one other I am showing today, Hard Candy is a fantastic peachy pink set, with not only the one adorable pair of cute panties but 6 all with the hard candy we all remember from our childhoods featured on the bum.

Be mine, heartbreaker, ILU, Kiss Me, Love Bites, Squeeze Me are the yummy slogans on the panties and hmmm 6 pairs only, me thinks that Kit has made one day panties free day *giggles*- I am so sure all the men in the grid went WOOOHOOO, I know mine has already declared his love for her today.

Reason being is that Kit has this little trick, she makes her little bitty skirts using the jacket layer instead of pants layer like most, which allows for panties to flash and with her sets like this new one and detention an older one its cute and sexy. This set not only comes with that type of skirt and the adorable panties, but also 80’s style anklet socks with ruffles… the adorable sweater comes on undershirt and shirt layers and the heart cut out is just fab, all year round.

What I love especialy besides, EVERYTHING! is the sleeve extenders on this top, made on the gloves layer, great idea and just adds a kind of cosy charm to it. All of the usual fabulous extras are included, like her posestand so you can make any adjustments without fishing around for one, the picture of the set so you dont have to remember everything you own lol, and the incredible Smart Skirt option in a seperate skirt- love that you have the choice without having to fiddle- and of course her notecard describing her ‘Look’ detailing who, what, where how and when for each item that she didn’t create herself.

Now when I ran to wear and saw the colour, I looked at Kits pic to see what shoes she wore with, more out of curiousity than anything else, they were white and I knew immediately what shoes I would wear, because he colour was identical and the shoes had saved me on another occasion when coming across the same pink.

Enkythings Menisa shoes are Enktan Gullys’ first sculptie shoes and they are marvelous, the texture is a soft suede leather look-on my screen anyway lol- with beautiful stacked wood heels that are rich in brown tones, and just look how perfect the pink matches up, so that if you decided to go without socks you are colour co-ordinated to perfection, you can check out the Demos’ in his main store or even grab them using OnRez.

Quick note on OnRez, if you ever want to see if a designer you already know has a store on the site, just use the regular site url and after com/ type in the designers first name _ last name and you will find them much faster :o) .

The hair in the pic is by Here Comes Trouble creator Babyboo Glitterbuck, whos’ hair I just love to bits, I was invited over to her studio in the middle of taking pics and of course Boo was not suprised enough to even ask why I was encased in a prim red ribbon lol. The hair is the wonderful Vesper style in Dirty, which is one of my favourite blondes, and be sure to keep a look out for the incredible hair and other goodies she has got coming soon, I seriously swooned.

Now about my skin, ahhhhhh Minnu Model Skins released the Third Generation Skins recently with the extended face make ups, some slight changes to the eyebrows and some other beautifying details, and as soon as I finaly got a chance to try them on it was instant love.

If you didn’t get the chance to see the incredible movie Minnu Palen made for the release you can view it HERE! and damm if your prone to easy exitability brace yourself, Minnu makes the screen perspire. I am wearing the MMSPale NF -Clean skin in this picture and the soft make up is just perfect for not only this outfit, but for those of us who work in SL and need a softer look for every day, but still want something that can go into evening and still be incredibly sexy.

One of the other make-ups in the extended range is the MMSPaleNF Aero , with its stunning red lips and beautiful eye make up that I am wearing in the next pic, and while I am on the subject of Eyes and MMSkins lol my Green eyes are from there also, Minnu recently updated all her eyes to give them a wetter more natural look, and they are so fab I bought a few colours and yet I only wear green.

This next set by Kit Maitland of CKS Designs is called Wrapped, go figure lol, now this little number is definitely something your valentine is going to enjoy unwrapping.

The incredible ribbon textured top is on all layers- I can so see that becoming this years censor top on occasion-and the red is silky and vibrant, tieing beautifuly at the front in a big yummy bow, the gorgeous sheer red panties are a fuller fit and a delight with their pink and deep red detailing and are a fabulous addition to your lingerie inventory.

Traveling further down I squeeled when not only were these stockings just too cute but they had seams, I adore seamed stockings as I have always worn them in RL in the past when wanting to totaly uplift a look to sextabulous, and not that this set needs that at all but oooo it’s a delight having them and again a great addition to your closet, even though a themed set the pieces in it just keep on giving.

A few weeks ago I stopped by Storm Schmooz and checked out the shoes I had seen blogged so beautifuly by many talented bloggers, it caused instant drooling and I had to grab all the demos because I knew that Mel would want in on the excitement. I actualy got a chance to talk to Storm for a few minutes in IM about some vendor pics being priced for thousands of lindens-yay loved that bug- and he was very charming and easy to talk to.

So when we went back I was treated by Mel to the Laque in Red as shown and the incredible pink you will see in the future, these shoes are divine; not only are they sculptie goodness but the texture is rich and delish, the shape of the shoe is very conservative and when mixed with the colours available in that shiny lacquered look its just hell sexy… kind of like an episode of School Mistresses GO Wild! – I’m sure there is one of those in the making lol.

So when I saw the rich shine to this wonderful Wrapped set, it was a no brainer on what shoes to wear with it. The hair is again by Here Comes Trouble, a wonderful concave cut with vintage style bangs that I love called Evette. Make sure you try on as many incredible Demos when you visit HCT, but also grab the seriously wicked fatpacks she has for 1L at the entrance to the hair section. My all time favourites are Mallory and Saleen of the 1L styles.

Now there are so many things that I ALWAYS use when blogging and doing my everyday things, one thing that you will remember some of you, and those that know me is that I always wear Hair Roses/Jewelry by Essentia. There are 57 of them in total and they are all beautiful and I do hope you stop by Fiachra Lachs’ store and check them and his beautiful Jewelry out.

As that is the case and also the same creators of poses will get mentioned every time I am going to make the bottom of my post one big credit to those creator/designers with their slurls etc, even though there might be a day I don’t use one stores stands in that particular post, I can pretty much guarantee I went through them all to get there, so they deserve appreciation for giving me so many choices.
