Mel helped me dress today, and he nailed it. I was shopping at the Magika sim a few weeks back and came across the mall there – yeah I didn’t know they had one either hair is as far as I get – but I came across a satelite store for Snatch and was overjoyed to see a set of pants called “no you didnt make bloomers”, regardless of the name I am so glad she did.
You get white and black in the pack, with short and long versions, these are actually the long, and the short aren’t too much shorter, they are bloomers after all.
As soon as I had them on for todays post I knew instantly what boots to wear with them, the *Courtisane*. Allumeuse boots are just divine, but with the open fronted look that is fabulous, it does make wearing them with dress pants not really as effective, so with the bloomers it was kismet. The lace tops to the boots and the lace bottoms to the bloomers work in perfect harmony.
That’s where I got stuck, well sort of. I tpd over to see Mel and was in a lace bra – as you do- and hadn’t given myself a chance to think up top yet, so asking him what he thought I should wear he instantly said a Pirate Shirt. Awesome choice and even though it isn’t exactly one, the Gothique set from First Impressions has this wonderful ruffle fronted shirt with cuffs, and a lace up corset for over the top. Perfectly wrapping the look together.
The striking hair is Isabella, beautiful long curls with a creative turban style band with large feathers adorning it, way too much fun to keep hidden away.
The new Kalista skin by Tuli issmoldering goodness. Very dramatic make ups can be found in the collection; as well as some soft natural looks and a blend of fantasy roleplay styles, you will be hard pressed to not find something to tickle your fancy.
I am showing the three I came across with beautiful rich red lips, as that seemed to be my mood for the day, in three tones of light, medium and tan. Tuli is a girly girl, you can just tell by the way she creates, and the feminine whiles of this skin speak that in volumes. Today my looks are more of the girly girl within, very powerful looks but with a definite all female quality.
This next set is from Shakture, now Shaka Saintlouis on the other hand is a Manly Man that likes making women look beautiful. This set I have had for a billion years and I love it as much today as I did when I got it. The Dress Shirt and High Waisted pants set comes with the shirt and upper part of the pants on the same layer, but you do get it on two for layering options.
Then you also as part of the set get the wonderful lace lingerie, how sexy are those panties, yum. It feels so lovely to have beautiful undergarments on underneath something so pretty, it makes you feel really well put together for the day or night.
Adding a bit more red in the form of the Classic Cocktail ring from Genesis, this ring has different metals and stones options, so its very versatile when colour coordinating. Another lovely and so soft hairstyle from House of Heart is the Magic style, Mel says it looks like its just been washed and really soft, and you have to love when your guy takes notice of such things â™¥.
The shoes are Courtisane Prelude, a lovely strappy sandal with a light wood sole and heel, now usually I would wear all black in this sort of look, but I was thinking in the ideal of day time wear rather than night, the idea that even though I am super dressy I could in fact add more to move into that night out on the town look.
What I really like about the Courtisane shoes, other than the obvious, is that they go all out to make sure that every detail of the shoe inside and out is beautifully styled and textured.
Speaking of both, the Siobhan dress from Shai is remarkable. For a start the irish name won me over in a flash, and the delight at this houndstooth style of vintagey glamour is spot on.
System skirt love all the way, the fabric is rich and beautifully worked, the sheer upper portion looking like an insert modesty layer is so beautiful, and definitely ads charm to the overall style. It isn’t seperate layers and I do kind of wish it was, not to wear them seperately but just to feel I am lol.
Next time you have a very important social event this is the kind of style you should try, it is classic and so incredibly stylish. The Gigi hair from House of Heart could have been made for this dress, it wasn’t that I know of but the veil part of the hair and the overall style just merged into this look of style and sophistication.
The Kalista skins from Tuli in all the tones and the three different make ups, would easily swap around with eachother, as all three looks would benefit from any of the three. Demo Demo Demo because you will really need to fall in love with this skin on your own shape to see its potential for you.
The Medallion set earrings and bracelet are from Essentia, and the cascading earrings are perfect alongside this updo look. The shoes are the Marquise Sandal from Courtisane also, the leather in these is shiny and gorgeous, and the ankle parts to the shoe are a seperate attachment, open toed and perfect for many looks, I can’t wait to see what the creative team of Enktan Gully and Leezu Baxter have in store for the future of Courtisane releases.
