No idea why I chose Guide Me as a title, but I guess that’s how I feel about our grid, and it’s people.
Anyway I was grabbing from different folders today for this post, and had a lot of fun doing so, hope you like.
So I was wandering around Popfuzz the other week, YAY for their New Main Store, and hadn’t realised that the Fuzzy sim was right next door. I knew Popfuzz owned it but didn’t realise they were connected, so I was wondering around with some friends I tp’d in and came across a PanJen store.
You remember a few weeks back I did a post on some Military coats of hers, well this is another, which also has fantastic Pinstripe pants.
The long trench style Military Coat is warm and woolen in fabric, the prim work is lovely and the double breated buttons and epillettes are fab. You can wear it with or without the long coat bottom, and as I said the pants are just wonderful. They do only come on the pants layer but as they are copy/mod I was able to shorten them and tighten the cuffs to wear with boots.
The Newish Nomad Boots from Dark Eden really fit into this look, with the charcoal like leather and tarnished buckles, the solid heel works for that marching Millitary feel, well it does for me anyway. This outfit makes me pine for the snow I keep hearing my favourite Men whining about each day, Fia says he understands that Snow is a miracle, but he is sick and tired of shoveling the miracle lol.
To accompany the pinstripe look I went with the New hair from Magika called Sneaky, the striped scarf/headband look of this short do is very carefree but stylish all at the same time, it can be casual or a bit dressier dependant on your mood.
Bebae Belina skins are one of the recent releases in the Skins line, and the shine on those lips is fantastic. This is the Cinna Bare-2a and as a bare skin this is just beautiful, that no make up made up look with a rich and glossy mouth is exactly the type of skin you want as your all rounder skin. Torie does such great work on really detailing the face, so that you come out looking fresh and enticing, without having to try too hard.
This next set is from Zenith, awhile ago Cajsa IM’d me and asked me to meet up with a designer friend of hers Miffyhoi, and the funny thing was that I already had a few things from the Zenith store. Miffy was lovely enough to pamper me with lovelies and this set Baggy just called out for some attention.
The set even comes with the cute trainers, the baggy pants are sculpted and fit really well, the addition of the belt with pouchbag is extra fun, but that fur collared vest has to be a fav part for me. One thing that stood out though and needs to taking note of, is that the bra is on the undershirt layer, and the tat is on the shirt layer, a bit odd to do it that way, but if you wear your own favourite tats I am sure you will be able to find your own black bra to wear with the combo, or change it up with a cute tank or shirt.
Adding more Dark Eden with the Lilith Set armbands, to sort of offset the strapped belt I was all set to street dance, lol sorry it’s one of my favourite style of movies, I love all those “I want to be a dancer but I don’t get into the school I want to, so I end up street dancing and then get accepted” kinds of movies. This outfit is totally that look lol.
Ashia and I went to Discord Designs last week and I had seen the Carter style before, but only this time around realised that there was in fact a head covering version. You see the Carter style is a braids hawke, how cool right ? but as much as I am totally never worried about being bald, a hawke in this style just didn’t work for me, but with the head covering version, as in hair styled to look as though the hawke braids are pulled up from long hair rather than shaved its all good, you get both versions in the pack :). There are such fabulous braided styles at Discord Designs you really need to try on all the Demos.
This Belina by Bebae skin is the Cinna: Berry-1b, full berry coloured lips with that marvelous gloss, and the tummy on these skins and all the Bebae skin range is toned well for a fit without muscley look.
While taking the pics of Baggy I was in IM with Miffy of Zenith and she passed me a New set called Victoria, perfect timing as all morning I had in my head that today I was going to show at least one of the Newer colours available in the fantastic Dela Ballet Slippers. I loved when these were released in black and crimson, but the newer colours just add so much fun to looks. The sculpted slippers are just beautiful, the shape of the foot covering, and the really well made ribbon ties around the lower leg give them such authenticity.
The Victoria dress by Zenith is a lovely short corset style with a short flexi skirt that can be perceived as a tutu. A very burlesque look that you could probably dress up a lot more than I have today. The charming neck choker is a rose inlaid with a large pearl, as is part of the set. The dress comes in other colours, but I was all about embracing the purple, so much so that the light Purple in this Gorgeous Gem hair by Magika was a must. This style is soft and flowing and has these delicate gemstones decorating the hair, such a fab look.
This skin by Bebae is the Belina *Cinna: Cat-2a, again such beautiful glossy lips and just look at the cleavage, perfect for a corset style dress like this one. The shading on the Bebae skins is wonderful and one of the best reasons to check out a Demo for yourself. I am using the Long Awkward Pose poses in the pics today, but the middle picture in this one is an animation from Mamesando, that store has the most awesome animations, they are fun and enchanting and you have probably seen many girls lately suddenly bend over and wriggle their bums, that is a classic Mamesando pose lol. They are all adorable and you can spend eons of time checking them and the incredible avatars they have there, thanks to Newdoll for taking me there one night.
Lastly we have the Temptation set from Stellar, Stellar is the rebranding of Stellar Designs by Lexi Morgan who has recently created a new logo and dropped the designs part of her business name. When you branch out into all sorts of creations like Lexi has sometimes a rebrand can help broaden the reach to a wider audience.
The Temptation set is appropriately named, the bra and sheer crop top are definitely enticing, but oo la la on those leather pants, just as well the Bebae skins are low enough on the privates to accomodate – even if not shaved grumble grumble – yes I feel cheated, having been subjected to Torie getting nakey in the middle of a store once while discussing that exact topic and then her releasing a shaved skin to much joy, and now to go back to not I WANT MY INNOCENCE BACK *giggles*. This rich and red lipped skin is the Belina Cinna Smokey 2b, the eyes are fab but again it is all about the mouth, whatever it is that Torie does to get such incredible mouths she needs to never stop.
Now back to the Temptation leather pants, the dipped v front pants come in both pants layer and underpants for a boot fit, and the stitching and the hipster cut are just fantastic, these are definitely a must have.
The Venus boots are also from Stellar as Lexi has branched out into footwear they come to just below the knee for me, but dependant on your height that will vary a bit. They are slouchy and strapped with silver buckle detailing up the height of the boot with matching silver heels.
The last hair shown is again from Magika and is the Mon style, the hat hair is just super, the slouchy beanie is a thick wool style and the two braids are shaped very stylishly for it to fit exteremely well. This style would also look fabulous with the Panjen Military coat shown at the top.
