This is another marathon post, and so worth the time it took to do, in between all the other things I do in a day it astounds me that its already nearly 11am so that’s 12 hours gone wooosh, since I logged in.
All fun to put together though, todays post is about two things mainly, boots and skin. The boots are the latest releases by Enkythings, and the Cypa boots are Enktans first sculpted boots and you have to have to check out the DEMOS as soon as possible, and then buy them all lol. I have always loved his Pinson and Cupo boots that are prim work as they were the first boots I ever had that were streamlined to the shape of the leg.
The Cypa has that same beautiful shape and the leather work is marvelous, not just plain leather boots these ones, no that would be too easy for Enktan, he has this habit of liking to release a multitude of colours in every release and he topped that with these. Each boot has incredible texture work to the calf of the boot topped and bottomed with leather in tan brown or black.
For the first look I am wearing the brown version in Snake, which are just lovely. Wearing with them the Brown Cords from Celestial Studios – yes I know you have seen them lots of times before and will again in a moment in another colour lol. The Essential Wrap Sweater in Choc from CKS and the divine and easily tintable Helena waist sash from Persona – I love those. Tinting the sash the same colour as the boots leather ties in the whole outfit.
Another piece of leather love today is the New Paddo bag by TRUTH, now in Australia we don’t have that many traditions, well we have a lot but usually they involve hangovers – Aussie’s don’t take offence you know its true. But one thing we do have is incredible Markets, and one tradition for a Saturday in Sydney, especially if you are from the East is Paddo Markets.
This bag totally depicts that whole thing for me, whether the bag was bought from one of the ever so talented designers – many big names started out at Paddo – or whether its the one you take with you when you go, because you know you are going to need lots of room for buying fabulous things. This Paddo bag has the size and the style down pat.
It also comes in many beautiful colours of leather- this being the Camel – and the texture work on the sides with the zipper and the discreet TRUTH logo are just wonderful. It comes with either hand hold or shoulder animations, so you are set either way.
Another set that would be in total keeping with the beautiful items you can buy at our markets would be the Tiger’s Eye Gold Jewelry set from Essentia, this was made by request of the Lovely Jaydie because she couldn’t find any at the time. The Hair also from TRUTH is the NEW Caitlin style in Chocolate, I am a Brownzilla in the making today, Mel would be proud.
The next Brown foray is in the form of the Cypa boots in Brown Swirls, giving a lighter look. Celestial Studios Stone Cords this time, I can’t help it they really are yummy pants, you are lucky I didn’t go with the Choc Suede pants too 😛 – get those as well when you are there.
The shirt I have on is from the Sonya set at AnnaH, a really cute shirt that is usually worn with a leapard print coat but on its own it has that kind of safari – omgosh I just got the connection – ok safari shirt and leopard coat umah thats naughty *grins*, it’s adorable actually and no orange leopards were harmed in the making.
Ooo that reminds me , I am using the New Dela poses in this post BUT , one or two of them are from the fantastic Le Boudoir Mode d’Ambre – Look at my Shoes set, the one in the middle of this pic is for sure, so check those out they are really cool, ok just looked up slurl and It is in my always thankful for section , but I’m getting invalid location, but Ambre Jun is the creator so tackle her for the place to see the poses.
The hair I am wearing is from Magika and is one of the recent releases from there called Nameless – the speed that those two girls create hair I’d run out of names too. How much are you loving these boots.
If brown isn’t your thing, lets go to the Cypa black Peonia shall we. I have been wearing the black as much as possible this past week, they are a delight and the ability to wear with just about anything rocks my world. In this case I went with an absolutely delightful dress again from AnnaH called Camila.
The gathered silk look of the bodice and then carried over to the incredible ballon skirt style dress bottom, this is such a sweet babydoll style dress, perfect for a night out or even a formal do, with the boots though it just adds to the fun of the style. What also adds fun is the bows at the back, those were a treat I didn’t realise were there until I turned and YAY how cute are they, I want this in a bazillion colours and I think there are only three, so I suggest getting those three and begging with me for more lol.
The Shamanic Necklace is by Uzuri, a great design and it comes in another colour too, but I went with the Monochrome for this look , so many wonderful and unusual designs at Uzuri that I have yet to show, but will very soon, but go look and beat me to it.
The hair is the Lucy hair by Magika again and another adorable Bow atop the crown of the hair, this is a really cute style as it seperates at the back to look like tails.
I honestly feel like I have already worn this outfit, again by AnnaH and it is the Ana Lu set, named after Ana Lutetia. While AnnaH was making it we were there every step of the way on Plurk and the pics in the store on the vendors are actually Ana herself.
A beautiful Cowl Neck sweater with an elastic belt look – I had that exact belt in the 80’s lol, finished off with wonderful pinstripe capris in black, the great thing is that the attachments for the pants don’t effect the boot tops as they are above the knee and use a different attachment point.
The black and red combination was perfect for the Cypa Aztec boots, they are a must have for all you red black fans. The hair is Zero from Magika a french twist style ponytail with lovely thick bangs.
Just a nibble of some of the other patterns you can get in the Cypa boots from Enkythings.
Aren’t they just divine, and seriously this is just a taste, there are more to see up close and personal.
Now about the skins, SLink just released Anya a more photo realistic skin with such beautiful and glamorous make ups, and not only is there Newness but a SALE on the Newness and everything else in the store.
You MUST Join the SLink update group in world, not the Subscribo, and when wearing your tag you need to pay full price for the item and then half will be paid back to you within moments. Make sure you are wearing the group tag at the time or it will not work.
First off the 5 wonderful tones in Anya – Bronze, Fair, Light, Pale and Tanned. I probably completely messed the order up then, but you will see which one you like best when you DEMO DEMO DEMO.
The make ups are shown on the Bronzed tone and this is most of them,not all. There are also freckled versions of some of the makeups. The lips are stunning and the eyeshadows are smokey and alluring.
The gloss effect to the lipstick is fantastic, giving you a moist rich look that wont wear off. The body is superb as usual with SLink skins and I have this thing about the knees, it’s such a strange thing to focus on I know, but I really like them in all of her skins. Again it is all about the DEMOS but dont take too long to decide because at Half Price you wont want to miss out.
The Lacy Lingerie is also from SLink and I am finally able to share it from the last time I went shopping there, I really like the panties on this set, having a distinct vintage look to them. Again at half price you will be shopping up a storm. The heels worn in the tones pic are also from Enkythings and are the Nana heels.
You have a lot of Demos to do today so have a glorious day, I have to go walk in my boots.
