Do you want to know a secret ooooo ooooo oooooooooo, ok so seriously its been a jam packed week; and you would think with not working now I would have more time lol.
Ok so on with the showing.
So the first Gown is from Sams Secret Boutique, and it is the December Gown – told you I was behind. The lines of this gown are just marvelous, and its the crushed crepe fabric that really makes this gown something to treasure.
There are multiple ways to wear the gown, you have the flexi white ruffle at the empire line, and without it the texture is really pretty also, then you have the incredible open fronted layered gown skirt, that is done with such attention to detail that you really embrace all of those layered qualities.
The back of the gown is plunging – not shown – but definitely worth a mention, as it has two delicate straps across the mid back to just hold it all together.
For the Jewerly I went with something timeless, the Antique Sterling Locket from Genesis, this is a scripted locket that you can load your own pic inside of, which also opens and closes, its a lovely piece that you will want to wear often with many looks.
The hair is the lovely Kailey hair from HCT (Here Comes Trouble) we all know how much I love HCT hair, and I am so excited because Babyboo is studying at the moment to broaden her skills with sculpties and other goodies that she will be able to use in SL.
The skin is the limited release for Valentines Day by Fleur, it is the Lily Shoujo Red Valentine and this skin has all the wonderful attributes of the regular Shoujo line in four tones and these incredible deep red lips. I especially love the beauty mark just under the left eye, its dreamy.
I got overly excited with the ShoujoValentines skins by Fleur, this is the pink version and I just love how bashful and innocent it looks. The blush to the cheeks and the soft pink lips are a delight, you really need to check them out in all the tones and find one that suits you, because this is a limited time skin you will not want to miss out on owning.
A few weeks back Newdoll and I were hanging out – as we do – and she was wearing this fantastic hoodie, asking where it was from we took a little road trip to LA Street Scene, now this is a shopping sim you will spend a lot of time exploring, because every little store has something fun and fabulous inside. Two of the stores in this pic are located there, so make sure you visit and get lots and lots, I did.
The hoodie is the I love my Kitten- Hoodi by MEEMBEE @ LA Street Scene , this store has a mix of delights, I even came out of there with hair as well. But this hoodie is fabulous, not only do you get the wonderful paw mittens for your hands, but there is also an unworn version on strings as well. Not only that but the fab hooded part has pink lined ears, and can be worn down as I am or up over your hair, that is a bit difficult to take pics of though as your head goes oneway and the hood another depending on the poses.
Now Newdoll and I went all over the place, I bought boots and lots of other goodies, but then when Newdoll crashed I came across Manga Passion @ LA Street Scene , this store is adorable and the set I have taken pieces from was like 130L or something nuts. The set is called tenue manga kawaii, and the items I am wearing from it are the cute pink socks and the fantastic belt, with cat face buckle and kit kats tucked into it, I mean what else would a kitty snack on. Just a snippet of adorable info, most things in the folder are called object or New Pants, New Shirt etc.
Now to show off and compliment this look I get to wear my No you didn’t make bloomers bloomers by SN@TCH, I love these and you saw them recently, but I couldn’t resist. They come in long and short and white and black in the set, so a big time bargain. The fabulous hair barrettes that look so much like ears are also from SN@TCH and are the Harajuki Barrettes, so pink and sooo cute with not only the roses but the wonderful little dolly heads sitting amonths the petals, a headband also comes with the set, so if you dont want to lose your ears you have that option all covered, YAY For thinking.
The hair I am wearing is another HCT style called Sella which is a pulled back loose bun style, which can be casual or dressy.
Lastly and a merging into another MUST HAVE, are the Kensington boots by Tesla. These are her latest release and they are fabulous. They remind me of equestrian boots, with their length and buckle, I cannot get over the smooth sleek look of them, especially the higher front that fit just right over the knee, the leather texture is soft enough to feel dreamy, and sturdy looking enough to let you know they are going to be a wear lots and lots boot and be strong enough to take it… they come in a multitude of fantastic leathers and I am so excited that Tesla is on a boot kick right now.
Now speaking of boots and we were, I cannot believe I haven’t blogged this before, and seriously it’s only because of Whimsy the other day did I realise that I hadn’. It pretty much went along the lines of ‘ Why the hell aren’t you wearing your boot fixer” …”What’s a Boot fixer ?” ” OMG WHAT?” .
Then an instant TP and a crazy stair climb you will have to see to believe. Ok so backtracking, a million years ago there was a post on Fashion Finds at Phils Place about the Bootfixer, from a store that was re-selling them. I went and grabbed like 5 at once and handed them out to friends- which now that I think about it probably means Whimsy has had one all along – that woman never unpacks things I send her darn it.
I have since then gone to the creators hole in the ground store numerous times with more friends to get them to grab one. The concept is that regardless of what pose or what AO you use the BootFixer – which is a hud with only one button on/off – will re align your foot. As you can see in the pic left is without and right is with.
Rarely am I ever not wearing mine, even if not wearing boots lol, no reason to have to remind myself to put it on that way :P. Not only is it genius but its 50L anddddd if you want to resell it , which is a brilliant idea for stores that make boots, you can buy a pack of them that are transfer for a discounted price and then sell them for 50L at your store. ARGH I just realised that I didnt get the slurl brb have to log in. Ok got it, will put it under the heading of Boot Fixer in my slurls page :). THis is a MUST have for anyone that wears boots ever, because as I said, not just pic taking is it a much better look but with AO’s it is a life saver.
Anyway don’t forget the Fleur skin is limited time only so get thee to a DEMO.
