Today is the start of the Fashionable Relay Challenge Click HERE for Info, I am so excited to see what happens, what people put together, and just the overall fun of it.
I am the first post, which made me nervous as hell, but someone has to do it. Ok so Yesterday I was so in love with the Green in the outfit that I wore that I decided to tap into that again.
Starting off with the delightful *sUmi* ruffle tube top apple, which is actually an item from Tuli , Sumi being a working alt that inspires her to do different things. I really enjoy the Sumi products, they have a great flare for colour and a 60-70’s kind of feel going on. The strip at the top of this tube top definitely has that going for it, and the ruffle hemline is adorable.
Now CKS Designs is an all time favourite, not just because Kit is a friend, but just because the ability to mix and match her products is so very easy, she does most of the work herself, always giving you an extensive amount of options and colours, and then vendoring them in such a way that you really see mix match concepts start to appear before you.
One of her huuuuge releases last year was the Summer Safari range, an array of pants, skirts, tops, shorts and jackets that were full of colour and vibrancy. The Summer Safari pants by CKS Designs that I have on are in black and make a great staple piece, but as mentioned, so many colour variations to choose from, and the jackets in that collection are MUST HAVES!.
It was great to pull out all stops in the accessories department, I knew for days that I wanted to wear a hat in this post, and totally flaked on being prepared for all this, but lucky for me I have a large enough assortment of hats to choose from and was totally overjoyed to pull my Geurilla hat by Kari out of mothballs. It also has the addition of two badges you can wear as well that add a bit more to the hat, but I kept it simple and effective, this hat looks wonderful on guys or girls.
Underneath the hat, some perfect in my opinion hat hair, this is the Saleen hair by Here Comes Trouble one of my favourite styles for years now , and only 1L for a fat pack at the main store, this hair is BRILLIANT for a straight hair lover, but also it is so easy to fit under hats, this time I didn’t even bother to edit seperate prims I just shrunk it a touch as the hat covers perfectly anyway.
I haven’t had a chance to show the Black version of the Bone & Silver engraved Choker by Studio Sidhe, I have shown the original and both are just fantastic, if you are a fan of bone jewelry this is also a MUST HAVE, I have at least 4 different variations in RL so I am stoked to have such beautiful pieces in SL too.
Sliding down my back we come across the Chibi Wings by Pink Fuel, I love these, they are soooooo cute, but seriously if someone doesn’t explain to me what a Chibi is I might just implode; I don’t want to google it , I just want someone to tell me lol. They have sparkle versions as well as spine or chest attachment, which is such a considerate thing to do, because not everyone can edit and if you have items that you can’t remove it is nice to have options.
On my left wrist I have the fabulous and often seen Medalion Bracelet by Essentia, I love this bracelet, and the earrings that you can buy as well are just fantastic, i would have worn them if you would have been able to see them lol; the reason I think I love this bracelet so much is the fact its so chunky but not a solid piece, its lots of little pieces that in my head make noise as I move, it reminds me of a charm bracelet – which I have to admit to always having been jealous of as a teen, not having had one.
On my right wrist I am wearing the Dian Bangle in black by DeLa, this is a great bangle as it has the appearance of many bangles in various design stacked on top of one another. When limited to attachment points like we are, this is a great design and beautiful piece to overcome those limitations.
Going down to my toesies, I am wearing the Frenzy Shoes by Maitreya, in such suple green leather, that your feet will be greatful to you. This style comes in so many brilliant colours, that are all so rich and you can practically smell that new leather smell. These are the kind of style shoes that when you come back from your overseas holiday everyone at the office wants to kill you, not because of the trip but the shoes you got that they can’t have.
Lastly I am wearing the Lelutka London 7b Sunkissed skin, I really enjoy how fresh this skin makes me feel , with the combination of such vibrant colour in the top and shoes, the simplistic ‘bare of make up’ look in the London range; makes you feel like you are putting your best face forward. I cannot wait to see what future skins LeLutka has in store for 2009, in not only skins but everything else in their range. But next time a skin does get made can I PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE get a shaved option, pretty please with Milo on top ?. I is homeless now so I need public changing safe skins and to not have to swing my cam around to check that nothing is showing when changing clothes, yeah yeah I know you have heard my plea’s before,but *bats eyelashes at Minnu* PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAASSSEEEEEEEEEE ??? ( still love you anyway mwah and a big tight hug to Ara just coz )
Plays a fanfare as I pass the Relay Baton to the lovely and oh so charming Ryker Beck of Rykerized.
