Sarah – 3 Looks

Every time I go to write the date this week, I go to write 12 not 11; it’s crazy enough how fast time is flying without pushing it to go faster.

Sarah Dela

I adore Ponchos, I mean what’s not to love, they are warm and snuggly, but its more the mystery surrounding them I enjoy. Dela recently released the Sarah Poncho, and this stylish creation isn’t your one piece of fabric with hole kind of look, but a layered creation in a large range of beautiful colours.

Now the fun part, is that not only do you get the full Poncho look, with a sash like belt tie at the mid section, but because of the luxury of attachment points – and in this case it’s a bonus – you end up with varying looks from the one item.

Far left I have gone Sarah Poncho in black, the way it’s intended to look. But underneath we have the Kitties Lair Booty Call gold mini dress, and MAiiKI black leggings – from their strapless and patent set – this way it’s an ensemble with the intention of partying hard. Flip off the Poncho and you have a sexy dance the night away look.

Now in the middle I removed the mid section attachments, removed/didn’t wear, whichever you like. This gives it a slim waisted look, while keeping the large collar and full sleeves, a very fashionable style especially if you add a wonderful belt like the Jill Tank Top belt also from Dela. Adding the Wednesday set pants from Cachet, this is a powerful look, from boardroom to function and then boarding a plane to some retreat for the weekend.

The third look is a bit more dressy casual, again only wearing the collar and this time the lower portion of the sleeves, you get a very attractive look that can accompany some pants, in this incidence I opted for the Celestial Studios Suede pants in blue, you can’t see them really but they are there, and a really nice match to the blue in the Sarah Poncho.

Having a blonde moment, and not the usual kind, but just really enjoying the styles that I had in blondes. A revisit to an older style on the left is Riha from Mirai, now recently I moved older blog pics to flickr and saw this hair and went OMGosh I own that ? I am terrible with hair, its an addiction I have had since the begining, I used to buy hair every day and more than one, and often never wear anything but the last style purchased – see why I need to blog lol. But then often I wear a hairstyle in a post and it gets put away and like this occasion it’s like buying it all over again when I find it. Such a wonderful short spiky look, the kind of cut that straight out of the shower you can run your fingers through it and you’re done.

The next style is from Magika called Zoey, I have shown this before also, and it is actually a long ponytail style, but the way the sides and bangs are shaped it’s a great concave effect for this look, so even without the tail, this is a style that with such a collar really works.

Camilla is a NEW release from Diversity which as an updo is just GLAM, when I put the clothes together though I realised that this hair doesn’t have to only be formal, as there are many that would wear this kind of style in such a way – Plus I wanted to wear it lol. The cover pic is another New style from Diversity called Calista a beautiful braided surround style, that can go from Casual to Dressy easily also, very flower power to me, I love it.

The Stella shoes and Devon boots are also from Dela, so while you are getting your Sarah Poncho on you can check those out also. The skin I am wearing I have shown before, and with the mature look to these styles it was a no brainer, the Bijoux skin by SLink just has that air of style to it, so DEMO DEMO DEMO.

Fetish Stylish

XXX Fetish

Feri Beckenbauer likes making things with lots of prims, it’s kind of his thing. One thing he loves making is armor sets, so when he sent me a special delivery awhile back and it wasn’t boots, that’s what I expected it to be.

I was mistaken, this set is far from armor, mind you there are parts of it that would definitely keep enemies at arms length.

XXXBeckenbauer

The XXXFetish set from Beckenbauer Productions is primtacular, and before you pout, there is a Male version too. Now I have to point out – and if I had been wearing them it would be a pun – that I am wearing a top from a different store in this pic. The top is from the Fatality set by Paradisis,a great top that worked really well with the theme of this look, the top also comes in striped and sheer, so you could be more daring than I was.

The reason that I am wearing the top, well the XXXFetish set is ALL Prim, yah no clothing layers at all, and the only covering in the breast area is two very sharp and pointed pasties, they are very very scary looking, in the good scary way, not the bad :).

The collar, armbands and the waist corset style belted straps all have the very detailed spikes, and they are all so brilliantly crafted. My favourite parts are of course the full skirt and corset straps, the ability to try very different looks with this are endless, and the heavy fall of the fabric on the skirt is wonderful, I really cant wait to look at the guys set too.

Rather than going the fetish way with todays look, I went more of a Vamp style, with the Celeste Mono Skin with Crimson make up from Adam n Eve, this is just a recent release for Adam n Eve, but an adaption of an older skin, which is really nice, the revisiting of older products with a fresher outlook.

The hair is new to me, but the store isn’t. The Stringer Mausoleum has such wild hair, and even though I did buy another style, this one was definitely perfect once put together with the set, it’s called KYPHOTIC and for some eerie reason it reminds me of the hair in one of the many Dracula films but his is white, and I wish I knew which film, but I’m freaking myself out trying to remember.

The eyes are from Treasured Visions, they are a great blend of grey, and large enough to be entrancing…cutely named PC101:Pet Rock lol. When I went to take the close up pic, I felt like I needed fangs, but I was a bit eh about that, I did tp to get some and once I didn’t see them immediately ; decided that was fate for me to turn back and go another way, that way being the Lip Piercing from Dark Eden.

Now I definitely recommend clicking on the pic and having a look at the original size on flickr, the Dramatic Lashes curly feather lil stars by PanJen are remarkable, and so many times I have gone to wear one of the brilliant dramatic sets but have ended up wearing other things that didn’t work, this does, so YAY. They were really easy to edit to fit, and I just adore how these ones look with this skin and hair.

Have a great day, and if anyone knows which Dracula it was I’m thinking of leave a comment *shudders*.

A Night Out

A night out can take on many different looks, whether it be high formal or just smart dressy you want to be prepared. These three dresses actually remind me of things, and memories are always good.

Zebre

This one actually reminds me of my best friends mum, don’t laugh that woman had a killer wardrobe. One thing she was really into and could actually carry off what animal print, the woman looked like Tina Turner with more tude, the woman was a cracker.

The Zebre Accent dress is not something to wear lightly, a mix of animal print in this gown/dress is definitely an entrance maker. I really like how the creator behind the label WigWamBam really likes to make a splash with prints. The lightning bolt effect running up the middle of the dress and finishing with a one strap look is daring and fun.

Also daring and fun is the SiREN-Amber-CHASKA skin from The Obscene, this was actually a give away skin earlier this week at Crush Row, not too sure if it is in fact still available but definitely go check. I have been finding excuses to change back into it over and over again all week. Definitely dramatic, The Obscene skins that I have seen are very noteworthy, the highlighting is very adventurous and there are some splendid makeups for different dressy looks, DEMOS DEMOS DEMOS.

Zoey is the name of this wonderful hair from Philotic Energy, the style is a razor cut, with loose tendrils falling at one side, the tendrils are fab, as there are three to play with, for all those fidgety people braids and twirling and if you can reach and pull, some definite sucking action- cant wait to see how often that comes up in keyword search terms lol.

I really adore the tendrils and the overall spikey shag look of this style, but one of my other favourite features is the back, underneath close to the neck is the short close cropped hair, done in such a way as to look very natural, sculpted and textured really well, me likey a lot.

Sasha

This is Sasha, an evening dress by SySy Designs. Now this reminds me of another person who used to wear shrugs and cardigans over everything, now sometimes it worked and most times it didn’t, this is one of the good working times.

Where I used to work in Phils Place I had a very different clientelle, many of the women were professionals wanting business suits and what not, and I used to have to really explain the necessity of having some good evening wear, or they would come in looking for such things after at that time – this was 1.5 years ago – not finding anything with a mature sensible feel to it.

I definitely think Sasha is that kind of dress, its very pretty and depending on the accessories, shoes etc, could be killer sexy, but if not in the mood to let your freak flag fly , then this potentially covers that need. Very sweet and with the Alicia Heels in black from Adam n Eve you have a winning combination.

Now seeing as I like being a bit freaky at 3am, I went with the LionSkins SUZANA-pale 82 skin, this skin has stunning eye make up, but with a subtle lip colour and overall make up look. Just peeking out from beneath the fantastic bangs of the Nico hair from Maitreya , whether it be a work do , or a potential networking occasion, this look gives you the ability to settle in and feel your way around, then when you know it’s time to let the hair down, off with the lovely lace crop and dancing on tables till dawn is the next step.

Elegance

Now this look was huge in the mid 80’s, the tuxedo gown look, a few girls at my formal went that route. The Elegance dress from Second Wave Apparel does actually have a collar part but I opted for the Pearls. The Jewelry set is the Tahition Pearls set from Primagine, beautiful pieces by Trixie Bumbo…I really adore the strand/choker combination with the knot of the pearls wrapped around a diamond brooch like disc, very effective work.

The Elegance dress is a mid length pleated satin combo, with a great big bow cinching it all in at the waist, my other favourite feature is its dipped back, allowing for the innocent batting of lashes and the accepting of a mans dinner coat to keep away the chill – seriously its a great way to acquire tux coats *grins*. The long gloves come with the dress and are a great addition to the look, also great for copying to your gloves folder when you need some like this.

With the Peta hairStyle from MMS still keeping the shoulders bare, I really like this semi pulled through loose bun look, but seriously what was with us, how did that become a trend, its not like we didnt pull through ponytails a billion times a day, and not one of us thought to stop pulling until the 90’s, that boggles my mind, and I have wanted to get that off my chest for many years lol.

Another fav feature is the loose strands across the top, again done with a alpha texture look, to make it appear that some stray wisps got loose, without using full prims to do it, bravo, hair creators lately are getting trickier and trickier.

I was having fun with my out there skins mood today, so with this look I went with the Blessed It’s My Party skin from Pulse. I would think at one time or another we have all done it, the crying at some event or party, and the mascara running blah blah , or well if you are old enough , before waterproof mascara and dancing in a crowded smoke filled club, you always ended up with panda eyes, so this make up works for both fun looks lol.

Hoorenbeek

The shoes are from Hoorenbeek,and it is their first foray into womens shoes. They come with so many features, you get to choose bow on or off, strap on or off, what kind of texture you want, whether pantent, croc, zebra, leather, different heels than shoes and so on, it’s fun trying all the variations, so give the demos a whirl.

Garden Tea Party

Quickies I never succeed at doing, but I have to try.

TL 1

Tea Lane recently became such due to the rebranding of Teagan and Laynie’s stores and yes it took me until now to get the name thing.

They have worked hard, and in doing so they even made a New Residents dollarbie store in the process with older items of theirs, so keep your look out for that too.

The items shown today are a mix of Tea Lane and Tuli, with others thrown in for prettyness. I have always been a citrus fan, lemons, limes and oranges make me happy. While putting together this outfit though, the old blah blah of ‘blue and green should never be seen, without a colour in between’ came to haunt me, and seriously I don’t usually care, but in this case it ended up a great way to add more citrus.

The Elsa sweater in jade is from Tea Lane and is a snuggly knit with a lovely large turtle neck collar. Going with the Dark Denim Sumi Jeans from Tuli with the adorable little strawberry patch at the back, the shading on these is excellent and I love the whole vintage feel of the Sumi range, for me it’s reliving being little and trailing after my very fashionable mummy – she is a shorty though, so even if she had kept her stuff id have capris not jeans lol.

The in between ended up being one of the Cameo Gem belts in Lemon from Digit Darkes, handy how that happened so easily :P, I’m pretty sure I chose the colours for that one, so that worked out in my favour. Getting a chance to revisit the Frenzy heels from Maitreya in the beautiful rich green, I love these shoes and right now there are retro inspired ones in the main store also.

Big smooches to TRUTH for making the new Babyhoney style hair that has an adorable beanie/bandana look, but not only because the style is gorgeous but because the texture change selection was spot on perfect in the green, so much so I wear it twice today.

With this look I am wearing one of the Tea Lane mod skins in Maple tone called Mabel, a lovely burnt orange make up and a beautiful tone, they have so many skins at Tea Lane, you really need to DEMO DEMO DEMO them all.

TL 2

Going a little paler in tone with the Sugar Skin – Payton(freckle) from Tea Lane, such a cute look with the smattering of freckles across the nose. You do also have the option without freckles so check them out.

The beautiful dress with jacket is again from Tuli, and is the Leila Garden Set . I was totally drawn to this ensemble, not only because of the beautiful style of dress but of course the combination of colours, and print. This is the outfit that I remember many times when I was in my mid 20’s wishing I had at crunch time, you know those sundays you have to attend some day time christening or whatever day time functiony thing, and you realise that everything you own is either work clothes or going out stuff, and its been a long time since you even thought of dressy day wear.

Well looks like this one are perfect for such things, and I know I am not the only one, so don’t get caught out, go explore that look, because even here we have daytime functions.

The crop jacket comes with and is great for mixing and matching with other items, I was so excited to see also that the Sassy Wedges by Maitreya had collaborated with Tuli to bring us colours that compliment this line, weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee more shoes. So there below the dresses are the colours that match, so if you are a fan of the Sassy wedges and you don’t know if you have these colours, for that reason alone you need to visit Tuli’s. The tortoiseshell bangle from the set at Essentia was also a great addition in the lovely soft pink, bringing it all together with my green and pink bonanze.

See still can’t do a quickie, I totally talk too much lol.

A whole lot of TRUTH

A whole lot of TRUTH

Truth has been creating like a man possessed lately, I have had things backing up so much that I just couldn’t put it off any longer. One of my favourite things is the Xanadu leggings, they are vibrant and shiny and so perfectly named…mind you I wish I could stop repeating one line from the song over and over in my head for the last 3 hours.

Truth 2

Worn in this picture with the also stunning Asymetrical Pleat top, this top has so many distinguishing features. The cute little bow neck tie holds the top in place, and its just so delicate and sweet. The pleated black panel coming up over one side is a really nice touch with the black lace underlayer on the flared bottom to this top. As it also comes with its own panties it is possible to wear it as a mini dress and I am sure many will, but worn over the Xanadu Leggings its glamorous and stylish, and the colour contrast works really well with the options available, of course you can just opt for the black.

As you can see I also chose to wear it without the skirt attachment, as the style works so well as just a fitted top, and gives you the chance to see the fabulous detailing in the tops of the pants, they look tight and body hugging, just as they should.

Truth 1

As you can see I wore them again, and again and again tonight. This is the Shanghai Dress, strapless with really pretty art work on the sides and a gathered effect down the length of the dress. That look reminds me of the 80’s – so much does this decade, it seems every 20 years we repeat, 90’s was about the 70’s and so on – reason being that so many dresses in the 80’s had this look, but it was usually up the sides.

Definitely a frock this one, as the colours and style are just so girly girl, the addition of the texture change belt is wonderful and if you like playing with colour combos this gives you that advantage. Sweet and twirly and perfect for the warmer days we are in the middle of right now down here, but as every day in Phils Place can be filled with sunshine this style will never need to be packed away for a season.

I really like this top on its own as well, again with the Xanadu leggings, and I got creative and pulled apart one of the skirts, but silly me forgot to change the texture first so it stayed pink once I made it just a belt, so if you are going to do that make sure you change the belt to the colour you want first lol. Even without the belt its a fun look, and Truth told me that belts are in the near future – YAY.

Truth 4

Now with both looks I am wearing the Savanna Florette Pumps, the latest shoes from TRUTH that are so sweet and definitely 80’s hands down, it was all about adding things to the toe area of shoes back then and the silly things would fall off in the middle of a night out, but just one, so you ended up looking strange if you weren’t sober enough to realise – I didn’t drink so my shoes were perfect lol.

My favourite part to the florettes are that they actually look like leather pieces turned into a flower, so definitely a crafted kind of look, these are just a few of the colours available.

Truth 3

The Spy coat is another item you can wear with pants, or in this case the leggings, or without as a dress. I am all about that zipper and the collar in this one, it’s a great effect and has been done very well. Again the belts in this are texture change, but I did mod tint both in edit just to get a closer colour to the leggings worn – I am getting way better at that.

So whether roleplaying a spy character or just wanting to look all stylish and well put together, this coat wont let you down. I am wearing them with the Huntress boots also from TRUTH in the midnight, I really want them in lots of other colours, especially the ones he does his belts in lol.

Now pretty much everything in this post is from TRUTH – except the Essentia Hair Roses – so that is going to make shopping way easy today. The skins I am wearing are the Rejuvenate skins, in Orchid,Viper and Mandarin in the Kashmir tone, beautiful skins with such lovely lips and eyeshadows. Also all of the lovely hair from TRUTH are Morgan, Hallie, Ruby, Polly, Nikhita 2 and Emma not in that order I don’t think, but when you get to the demos you will work it out :).

Definitely go and grab the Xanadu leggings, they are going to be great for mixing and matching this season and well into the others, also I have to point out that the sculpted cuffs are just adorable and with minimal effort fit over the heel of your shoes which looks great. Mind you Truth doesn’t get forgiven for no grey or silver :P.

It’s a Riddle

RIDDLE

I got completely mixed up on the date yesterday, first post was my 19th as it was before midnight, but the second was definitely the 20th, so it will seem like I skipped a day, but I really need to keep to aussie time for sanity sake.
Lets get to it shall we, RIDDLE as I have blogged in the past has some really wonderful casual and fun items in the store, I have had some items for a few weeks now and realised that RIDDLE Is in the middle of a SALE. So not only did I take pics of what I had, but I went over and grabbed more, and I am so glad I did, the items I hadn’t seen before have made me very very happy indeed.
Riddle 1
Lets start with the items I already had. From the Every Day Denim selections there are different varieties of Dark denim. With each set you get jeans,cargo’s and shorts. So I decided to show you three of the styles in those three options.

Left we have the Oil Stains Jeans, beautiful dark denim with sculpted semi flared pants legs. Then we have the Dark Blue which is just a simple dark in the cargo style with again sculpted cuffs with a nice clean folded and scrunched effect. Lastly the Paint Splatter shorts version, which are kind of long shorts which is very nifty, I really like that the paintsplatters are in shades of blue, giving it a more arty look than messy.

Around the waist of the denim I am wearing the lovely sculpted Nirvana Bead Belts from Studio Sidhe, Faery Sola has been doing some divine and playful pieces with sculpties lately and they are all so in keeping with her Fae ways.

The tops I am wearing are also from RIDDLE, as are all the clothes today. They are called the Smexy Shoulders tops, and they are snuggly, sexy and just plain adorable. I think this style is very cool, reminds me of the 80’s when it wasn’t cool unless you took the scissors to it. The long sleeves which just defy gravity, as an addition to the perfectly fitted tube top are just great, but I really like the cheeky white straps factor, this is all one item but you do get to wear them on all layers – just not as seperate pieces, which would be fabulous in the future as an option.

I adore knits, doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, and as you know already or should, I am a grey lover, big time, but I am jumping ahead, so lets go to my head instead. I went a bit crazy at MMS yesterday, it seems somehow I missed one or two hair releases, which is a catastrophic to me, but I sure made up for it.

This hair is Messy by name and nature, a short shaggy look which is great for casual days or crazy nights. I really like not only the straight cut style, but also the stray curls just poking out from under, as though its more of a style growing back than just perfectly coiffed. The other thing about Messy is that its an older style, again how I missed it I don’t know – I see the hair on Thora or Minnu in ads and sometimes in person and it’s always coming soon, and then it comes and I miss it lol – but my point was that because its older, for some reason its priced lower than the newer styles, all the hair on the second floor at MMS are reduced, so make sure you cam up while you are there, or be a daredevil and take the stairs.

Now about those shoes. *slips in some more pics*

Sasy Stiletto Digital Dragon Designs 2
Sasy Stiletto Digital Dragon Designs

Last week I logged in to a big surprise, an IM from Zoey Pinkdot of Digital Dragon Designs telling me that her and Ninja had named some shoes after me. I was honored to have such talented creators think of me when naming these wonderful shoes, the Sasy Stilleto’s are just gorgeous.

The textures are just beautiful, and the colours are spot on delightful. What I love the most other than the honor of course, is that they totally nailed my style, I am tall in RL but have always worn heels, the higher the better, but one style I particularly love is the built up platform front with the high heel, giving the illusion of an arch but with the stability of actually being very firm footed as you aren’t really extending the foot much at all. That kind of style allows for many many hours on the dance floor and those torturous walks home at 3am because you can’t find a cab to save your life as its change over time.

So thank you to both Zoey and Ninja for the honor and the style- I am so in lust with that beige, and I forgive you for no grey :P.

Speaking of grey.
Riddle 2
OMG could they be more heavenly. These are the items that I got last night, and the added bonus of them being on SALE made my night. The SALE at RIDDLE ends on the 23rd by the way, so do not miss out. These are the Skully Argyle sweater dresses, more fantastic knits and I am going to beg here for these without skulls in the future if possible.

The fat pack price of these on sale is a steal so if you love grey and love argyle then thats the pack for you. The sculpted collar is just wonderfully shaped supporting the neckline, and the actual knit in the skirt is just fantastic , but just as I was about to leave, out of the corner of my eye I spotted something so incredible, it’s a MUST HAVE ! – KIT OMG you have to get these.

Riddle 3

Not only are the combinations of the dresses already just perfect, but the Cable Knit Stocking set thats just to the left in the corner of the store are TO DIE FOR !. Not only do you get the thigh highs, the full tights and the knee socks in this amazing knit, but they are TINTABLE!, seriously could they get any better?.

I honestly dont think I have seen any like this before, and if there are some out there then I hate that I missed out, but I am so loving the ones from RIDDLE they are just superb.

The hair I am wearing with the Skully Argyles is Lisa, also from MMS and just lovely, straight fronted with loose corkscrew curls buried underneath to give it some body, as you may have noticed I am a bit of a fan of the red pack at MMS – they use the same heavenly textures as Maitreya so that just makes choosing so easy.

Riddle 4

Lastly we have some swimwear from RIDDLE. Always fun to have a bikini boardies combo, you never know when you might want to duck up to the shops for a cornetto, I used to do the markets near a busy beach and I swear to goodness people, if you have to cross a road you need to cover up, there is nothing more damaging to my brain than budgie smugglers first thing on a sunday, unless of course they are on our life savers, then all is forgiven – but alas they never are.

This is the Hawaiian Hottie set in blue, as you can see you get both options, the bikini bottoms with their fab string ties effect, as well as the short boardies. The added bonus to this set is that it comes with the thongs – those things on my feet – every aussie needs thongs and when they come all included in your swimsuit set well its just extra fab. The ability to just wear folder and trudge down to the beach, has me happy.

Other things that make me happy are this last hair style called Tate, Newdoll was wearing this last week and thats what led me to realise that I missed out on hair releases, I just didn’t realise how many. This ribbon/leather strapping hippie look hair is just perfect for lazy days by the beach, correction ; this hair is just perfect for anything you want to do lol.

Now about the skins, all the skins shown today are from Pulse, as I have explained in the past with the Pulse skins you get three options of overall skin look, as well as two down there options -both shaved – and eyebrows in blonde, black, brown. I have never bothered with the other colour brows in the past , but today on the cover pic I went with the blonde and it really is amazing what a difference it makes.

Reason for me to always have dark brows when wearing blonde hair, is that to me I’m dyeing it, my hair in RL is dark to red tones, and so even if I did go blonde I’d leave my brows their natural colour, but I totally get how you might want them to be your natural colour, so the choices are there.

Now as you can see also I have opted for the Beach look in the Blessed Pleasure Skin for the last pic, I love the Beach option, giving you that lotion look without losing layers. You can say what you like about Oil and Lotion you don’t have to wear it, but many do and enjoy the difference it makes to a look, so with skins from Pulse you get that and the Radiance and the Natural choices to play with.

With the top picture I am wearing Blessed Desire and the Skully Argyle is Blessed Emotion, all such gorgeous skins with divine makeup and sensational shading. The soft blush on all three’s cheeks is also something I think is just lovely in the Blessed from Pulse range and there are so many more make ups to choose from, so DEMO DEMO DEMO.

Make sure too if you are a MMS hair fan and you haven’t seen a release notice lately that you go check them out, don’t be like me and miss out for weeks on fantastic hair.

Back to School

I came across some sad news as I was logging in today, a much loved designer is having to close up shop. This does not mean her items will no longer be for sale, but due to economic reasons she has decided that closing her in world location is the best way to stay creative. Thank goodness we have alternatives to land, or we would lose so much talent otherwise.
The store is Ashia Designs, by Ashia Tomsen. You will also know her as the ever enthusiastic blogger over at Freesyle. Everyday she spends hours putting together wonderful finds for us all to ooo and ahhh over, as well as running her business and working RL. Her message to her group was totally heartfelt and I hate to see her have to pack up, but thank goodness she isn’t leaving us altogether that would be too heartbreaking.

“Dear Gorgy ones
Tis with heavy heart that I report to you that Ashia Designs can no longer afford to keep an inworld presence. As such, the main store will close Thurs 27th slt. I will try to get my slx and onrez pages updated, so you will be able to buy new stuff as and when it comes. Until the closing date, all skins will be on sale for 100L each, so if there’s one youve been after, now’s the time to grab it.
I want to take this time to thank you all for your support, help, advice and neverending cheer over the last 18 months. It has been an absolute pleasure to get to know you all, please stay in the group, as I promise I will still be releasing skins/eyes and freebies. From the bottom of our hearts, kenlee and I wish you all joy and gorgeousness in your second lives XD!
Ash & Ken
<3”

So as you can see, everyone will benefit from this situation, as from now until the date set, all the skins in her store are drastically reduced to 100L each and many of those come with freckles options as well. I went over as soon as I logged in to find a store full of people and grabbed some skins I didn’t already own. Two of which I am showing today.

Old School CKS 1
Old School CKS 2
Old School CKS 3

The skins are the Cat Beige 2 and Bare Green 1, both come with freckles options- not shown. There are many reasons to adore these skins, one of my favourite parts is the collarbone and chest area, and I don’t mean the breasts themselves – even though they are fab, but more to do with the breast bone area, as its incredibly featured in this skin, you will be able to see that better in the next pic.

Other details I really like, are the mouth and eyes, it’s a very expressive face, and if you are into fantasy skins you will have to check out all of those too, I got some drow skins that are aces. DEMO DEMO DEMO at 100L each you would hate to miss out.

Ashia like moi lives in Aus, and down here right now is manic school time, I mean crazy stuff goes on for the next 4-6 weeks roughly – depends on if you are a private or not. But it is exam time and formals for the high schoolers, and not to mention the insane schoolies week up top. The weather is getting hotter too, which makes for irritability all around.

So as I had these two deliscious sets from CKS Designs in my waiting to blog folder, I thought that now was the perfect time to show them. This first set is the Old School set, I have been hording this forever and as soon as it was released I ran around like crazy so excited. First reason was because Kit was back in form, the other is because the skirt has the pantyless option WOOOHOOO!, no I don’t run around the grid pantyless, but I do like the option to actually wear panties with a skirt – yes I have gone into detail about this before so I will save you the rant.

Now if you haven’t shopped at CKS Designs before – WHY NOT? – you will be surprised at how much you get in a set , no seriously the girl is a layer magician. She makes layers you don’t even know exist. Let me try and explain, A shirt from CKS means that not only will you get it on every top layer, but you will also get the bottom of said shirt on both pants layers. For a skirt you will get the option of just the band of the skirt – in the case of this set I am speaking – on the pants, underpants and jacket layer, the band of the skirt with underpants included so that it looks like you have on seperate panties, and those will be on both pants layers, and lets not even go into how she does her socks:P. The girl is a marvel, and no not the comic.

With the Old School set though , she went above and beyond. You see unknown to me, until today, there was a seperate bag inside the already huge set. Each Old School set comes with double colour combo as shown. So there I was snapping away and went to wear a second set and all of a sudden I was wearing a bag, now usually I keep bags, but as CKS items are transfer I don’t usually, so I thought that this was odd, and why does it have a different name? so dragging it to the ground I realised that there was a second sweater option, and not just a regular sweater but a fabulous Letter Sweater – goes all American Love on you all.

We don’t do all that here – sobs – and I grew up wanting a lettermans jacket so badly as a teen. But again back to layers, she didnt just make this wearable as its own sweater, oh no that would be too normal :P, she made the jacket layers the armbands and letter so that you have the option of wearing it with the shirt layer with scooped neck ORRRRRRRRRRR wearing it over the top of the adorable turtleneck. One for each letter, I was so excited and snapped away wearing my S proudly.

Then I realised OMG I am doing this wrong, Growing up watching all the jock movies I know I am supposed to be wearing my partners letter, so even more excited and proud I was to put on the M, YAY Kit I loves you ♥ .

So the set comes with two skirts, two turtlenecks, a bunch of socks, white panties, because if you are going to bounce around you have to have your cottons on. Super sexy shorts in both colour combo’s ANDDD the lettermans sweater layers as well as scoop neck shirt. I would count the items this all involves but I don’t think I can – by the way Kit, tell Jim I think I’m winning :P.

With the pics, I wanted to wear hair in keeping with the look. These first three are from Magika, the first being a group gift – they give hair out all the time. It is called Connect, and as it wasn’t boxed but I wasn’t aware of that at the time, I dragged it to the floor to unpack to be green texted with the new copybot system, that also deletes it immediatly, scared the hell out of me…I certainly hope it does the same to thieves because now it will have my name in a data base for tracking. If this is something that you would like for your hair maybe contact Sabina Gully to find out how to go about it, don’t rez the hair lol.

Connect is a great swept back bangs style, with braided pigtails, the second hairstyle is Kewl, again pigtails but very long and with double ties, thirdly we have Zoey, this one is a side back pony which is so cute, because from the front you look like you have short razor cut hair, it’s like two looks in one.

The shoes I am wearing with these pics are the J’s Sneaker P.E’s so many great colours in these to choose from and all of them went so well with the Old School sets. I keep meaning to find out what the PE stands for as down here we actually call school sport PE for Physical Education, but I wasn’t sure others did that too?.
Student Body CKS

The next set is the Studen Body set, a mix of plaid and argyle which Kit loves and I am so glad she has returned to making, as she has such fun with it. Again many many layers make up this set, not as many as the other, but still a lot. The great thing with this one is not just the fabulous prints and overall style of the set, but also the ability to use each seperate as just that. It would be so easy to find other alternatives to utilise these pieces. The low scoop of the polo top would make it very fitting with a great pair of slacks or jeans, and I adore the ever so little skirts, their bold print makes them eyecatching – or is that the length that does that. Regardless any sort of top option would be an added look to the mix.

My other love and thankfully an addiction of Kits, so I am hoping we see so many more, is the socks, now the socks in the first set are just fab, but this set the not so knee highs are Tasssssssssssssty. I am wearing them with the Diva heels from Tesla which I love and they also had the right colours to go with these sets YAY.

The hair i am wearing is NEW from HCT , and is called Pearl, it’s so sweet but so booksmart looking I thought it was appropriate too, especially when teamed up with the SMP glasses from booN. HCT has added a new pack to its textures called Foxy , so if you haven’t been over in a while, you should check that out.

Now for some Eyes, Treasured Vision by Malkavyn Eldritch. Malkavyn is part owner of the Magic of Oz sim, if you haven’t been – WHY NOT? – lol. He makes all of his eyes by hand and the outcome is fantastic, many many layers of work goes into handdrawing these eyes, and the ones shown are some of his favourites in the Flecks series. They come in large and small, I am wearing the small. A beautiful assortment of colours and I really like how they are named very appropriately as you see such wonderful flecks of light in the eyes.

So if you have been looking for some new eyes and want some beautifully handdrawn ones, then you should go check out Treasured Visions, and experience the Magic of Oz while you are there.

Insolence “Barbara”/Dutch Touch “Indie” 19th Nov. 2008

Insolence “Barbara”/Dutch Touch “Indie” 19th Nov. 2008

This is kind of a test of sorts, as well as a post disguised as a page. There has often been discusions about ‘cuts’ not working for many reasons, one that would be the most important is that children may see something that they shouldn’t.

I don’t show things in my posts, that’s just how I am, but I totally understand why some do when relevant. WP gives us the option to ‘cut’ but it doesn’t follow through when dealing with feeds etc, so I was trying to work out how this could be tricked, nothing was possible that I discovered, except one bit of info stood out. Pages do not show on the front page of your blog except as a tab, and pages it seems are unlimited, just as posts are.

Now there is also the alternative to show only a portion of your post, but it ends up being a muddle of words and no pics. I also know that when i link to my slurls page, that that is a clickable page, one that can be added to. So lets test how it works shall we, as I show some items that I have been negligent in not sharing sooner.

So what I am doing is, writing the full blog post in a ‘page’ and then once done, copy pasting a portion to a regular ‘post’ with the link to the page. It might work and if it does, then I think that many may find this useful. I personally would much prefer to have the beginning ‘teaser’ of my post on feeds rather than the whole thing.

Insolence Barbara 1

Insolence Barbara 2

Barbara is the latest lingerie set from Insolence, it’s not new as in hot off the loom, but it is the most recent release. Barbara comes with a few different option, a beautiful lace bra with a halter neck collar, a half cup corset that is somehow innocent looking with its soft and delicate frills and lace detailing, but definitely all sorts of raunchy if you decide to not wear the bra.

You can see more of the set HERE at the Insolence blog, I urge you to go and look, because there is some ‘need to know’ information about the sculpties used in this set, something that I had experience with earlier this week when using a different viewer with some shoes. So it is really important that you all regardless of buying lingerie or not, know whats going on with sculpties and the new viewers.

The Barbara lingerie comes with also panties or high waist panties options, and the frills and bows mentioned with the sculpties are so delicate and delightful, you can of course wear them without the frills, and with the shirt and undershirt and pants and underpants layers included, you can have the set sheer or a bit less sheer, depending on your mood.

A great way to show new lingerie or swimwear is with a new skin, so I took this oppurtunity to show the Indie skin by Dutch Touch, the skin tones are lovely with different shades from a pale to a tan, and all the ones in between, the detailing is beautiful with pretty shading on the back and an adorable bum cleavage.

The make up in this particular range is a soft violet, and I really enjoy the eyeshadow and the lips in this set, it’s definitely a make up that you could wear casually/dressy in the day or vamp up for the night time. I wanted you to see the fingernails too, not really that clear but they are polished to perfection with a french manicure look you wont want to or need to cover up.

Framing the beautiful make up is the NEW hair by TRUTH called Renee, it’s the farrah of the naughties for sure. Large luxurious waves framing the face and moving down to just past the shoulders, this is an all time hair do, and many actually do have those – shocking I know. With the splendid array of creamy rich textures in the TRUTH hair you will really like how the waves catch light- depending on what kind of light you use, of course.

This style can go from corporate to bedroom with the undoing of a blazer button and the lowering of a zip, isn’t it just a fab coincidence you already have on Barbara underneath.

So DEMOS DEMOS DEMOS on the skins and the hair for sure, and definitely head on over to Insolence for some beautiful ways to show off your new skin and hair.

Put a feather in her hat, and called it Macaroni

Put a feather in her hat, and called it Macaroni

The pictures are just part of the post, the main part is the Movie HERE , and believe me it was not only exciting to film but even more so to share. It started with a present to me from Newdoll Nikolaidis, you may know of her Flickr work HERE or her New Blog HERE. I haven’t even shown that gift in the pics or movie, as it’s so incredible that I want you to see for yourself in person.

The items that I am refering to are all created by Onakagoo Epin of 109 Prims, this is not just a store, it’s an experience. I have always admired the whole Steam Punk look, the items that have been created in world, and just pics I have seen on the net. To me Steam Punk is the perfect collaboration of recycling and creativity. I was pining over some outfits I saw on google and that led me to try and recreate that look with pieces I already owned.

109 Prims-t

This came about easier than I thought. The first outfit is a total mish mash and I am over the moon with the outcome. It started with the Dark Brocade underbust corset from Trilobiteware, the whole Trilobiteware experience was also a fun one I had to share, and funnily enough that happened with Newdoll also. I went there with Mel looking for some latex that we had seen elsewhere, to find in the last moments of the visit the most addictive shopping experience.

I bought a few of the Latex catsuits, to then find this magical machine that the designer had made herself that is a Lucky Dip vendor, I kid you not, this thing is amazing. I realised that the items in the vendor were the ones I had just purchased style wise, but at a reduced cost, due to the Lucky Dip not getting a say in what colour you get concept.

So as the catsuits were already inexpensive to start with, and now even cheaper, I took a gamble. The items were also no copy, so even if I got one I had already purchased I could gift it. But no, I got totally different colours, ALL SIX TIMES lol yes I was hooked. Now there was another vendor below, and I did glance at it, but as I have many corsets already and we were going somewhere else I refrained.

A few days later I was talking to Newdoll and she mentioned Latex and I got all excited and wanted to share my find. So she took a go at it too and was hooked as well lol, seriously its incredibly addictive, now while there she mentioned the corsets, and foolishly I had never actually looked at the price last time, but WOW 25L each, so again I was of the thought, that if I didn’t like it I could gift it…Blushes, TWENTY THREE, I kid you not, I walked out of there with 23 Corsets that I will cherish, and NOT one repeat, this script we think knows what you already have in that timeframe, that’s an assumption though, because between me and my 23 and Newdoll and her collection – I don’t know how many she left with lol – I didn’t get the same thing once, and both of us I believe only got one the same twice. (edit- Newdoll got a few repeats but was happy to gift them )

This is a sensational way to shop and I would love that scripted Lucky Dip in every store lol, because it’s a real high. If you already know the quality etc, and you are one of those people that can never decide on what colours, this is a great way to do it. Especially if the item is cheaper than on the wall.

So this is just one of them you are seeing today and so beautiful and richly textured, underneath that I have the Essential Wrap Sweater by CKS Designs, usually worn very differently I just really liked the plunge on the neckline when placed underneath the corset. I will be showing these in more detail in the future, but the style and the texture worked for this look.

To break up the long expanse of skin between neck and cleavage, I went digging into my inventory and pulled out the necktie with cameo from the Steam Rocket Ride set from Bare Rose, for this piece alone I would gladly pay what you get charged for this wonderful set which I have blogged in the past, I also tinted it a dark charcoal to mix in well, deselecting the cameo so that it stayed as intended.

Speaking of tinting I found a glorious use for the Determined coat train from Digit Darkes for this look, I wore the charcoal and tinted it a little darker – as it’s mod copy that was easy to do. I liked the idea that it looks like the corset is cinching in the long coat, even though I am not wearing the upper part of the coat at all.

Adding some Button pants from old GLAM – I don’t think these are available anymore, but worth checking the VG Republic or whatever it’s called since aliens took over, there are many types of pants similar to this around, so just find your favourite, I have always been a fan of the double button look in coats and pants, and it fits in perfectly with the Steam Punk style.

For the shoes I went with the Athena boots from Tesla, not really visible in the pic, but you can see them in an old post HERE , they are an open toed victorian style boot, so again very fitting. Also fitting because I ended up taking Tesla to the store featured in the movie earlier today, so she also has experienced the 109 Prims fascination, and we ran into Kriss Lehmann of Botanical Straylight, and as I asked if we would be able to wear such things at that location, it was a wonderful place to shoot the film.

The hair atop my head is the Thursday Hat/hair from Gritty Kitty, with its ability to change colours of not only the hat , but also the feathers, it was a great way to colour coordinate with the whole ensemble.

109 Prims-o

The next look as you will see in the movie HERE – in case you missed the first link – is very appropriate. The Cut bodysuit is from Refuge and is just lovely to wear with other items of clothing, or to adorn yourself as I have done, with all sorts of accessories.

Wearing also the arm and leg pieces from Dark Eden‘s Rust Shaman set, also Steam Punk in concept with its use of gears and cogs and scrap metal, my favourite parts of this set would have to be the leg parts and the hand wraps, as well as the Jewelry which you can purchase seperately. The wings are from the Messenger of Light set from Bare Rose and that is also actually featured in the same post I did on the Steam Rocket Ride.

109 Prims-l

There are two styles of hair from Discord Designs in this movie, this one is Laetitia. Now you might remember my oooo’s and aaaaaaaaaaa’s about the Jordan style released at Hair Fair HERE, that had me totally in awe of the braids style, well the lovely Salt of The Adventures of Salt n Peppa Blog, did a post recently that had me rushing over to get more. Taylor is the style worn in the other scene in the film, in which I am wearing it in red, and this one is a more pulled back style in the same theme with braids flowing down the back.

I recently told Efe that when I was younger but into my 20’s I used to do that with my hair, not full braids but lots of small thick plaits which I then added crazy vintage hair ties to, ones with sailboats, and toy soldiers, I was a bit crazy like that, it was only painful if you spun around really fast, those soldiers packed a mean punch. So when I saw Taylor I was so overjoyed to be able to recreate that look part of the way – I wonder who I can get to make me the soldiers .

All of the skins in this post, and the movie are the captivating Miyu Skins by SLink. Miyu is an asian inspired skin but with the variety of shapes we all have, it will look different on you , so Demo Demo Demo. The makeups are superb, with beautiful lips and high cheekbone shading. As usual the body of the skin is a delight, you will want to try them and all the other SLink skins while you are there, to see the various differences each one has.

I really hope you enjoy the movie, everything in 109 Prims has DEMO’s which is magnificent, so you can really get a feel for, and see each wonderful constructed piece up close and personal before purchase. Other than that , spend some time at the store itself there is a ballroom and wonderful areas to just chill. The whole place reminds me of Edward Scissorhands for some reason, this is definitely something you need to see, and when you get there, find the carriage, that was my glorious gift from Newdoll ♥ and I cherish it and I hope you will too.

Also take time to revisit or for the first time visit the beautiful Botanical at Straylight, it is a sim that just keeps adding dimension for me every time I visit, there are so many nooks and crannies and hidden delights, and you can meet some really nice people there, I met one today, a new resident called Jbizzle *waves*.

Cheetah Print Bikini

I went to a store last week that actually shared space with another, I was really taken by the vendors on display. I really like when people go all out to show off their wares and this store does that really well in my opinion. I also couldn’t resist this Cheetah Print Bikini, there were other fabulous prints as well, but this one just called to me. I really love the style of top, that you could easily wear with dress pants and make an outfit of it.

The bottoms are actually a thong, but more of a T back than anything, coming straight down from the wide straps. I wanted some new hair today, was just feeling in that mood, so went and grabbed the Pulu style as it just seemed perfect for the bikini and the rich chocolate brown texture was just the mood I was in.

I am wearing the beautiful Blessed Purr skin with the black brows option and the Beached look, I love this as I have mentioned before, the ability to look as though you are outdoors and sunning with the beach look is just great. The make up on this is lovely too and again that mouth YUM!!.

I thought I would take the VR HUD Library out for another spin, practice makes betterer and all that lol, loaded up with some Long Awkward Pose poses.
