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.
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*
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.
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.
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.
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.
