Mel Mountain is phantom in the middle

Bananas

Love this dress it is so darn sexy, a tad revealing but incredible work done on the texturing and craftmanship of putting it together so well. What better way to show off these new shoes too, not so new in style, but new in textures. This is a super duper quickie post , but wanted to make sure you didn’t miss out on the fantastic flf hair from Elikatira, a stunning short style that looks fantastic in the white. Mel loves white hair, and this white is superb.

I love that this hair is short enough to expose the faint line of hairbase I have on in black, one thing I wish more of in SL was the ability to wear wigs, but as our own hair is a wig in reality it doesn’t come across. So this is my make do do.

The necklace I am wearing is actually a bracelet, I saw it was no mod but resizable and took a gamble. I love this as a choker as the necklace style in the same store was not really as exciting to me. So this definitely works.It has an elephant on it, so cute.

Ok so much for quickie, the shoes I am wearing are peeptoe pumps from MStyle and you have seen the floral collection I am sure, but these are the new citrus strong colours that were released and they are glorious, so demo demo demo.

Temptation doesn’t stop at fruit

Ok so before I forget, Diesel Works is having their annual SALE, which pretty much has everything at 50% off. But it is limited time only, so do not miss out on the bargains, I used Diesel Works poses in today’s post, so they are lots of fun.

Now speaking of lots of fun, the Apple rings from Addict are just darling. Very retro as the apple somehow was a huge embellishment in the 70’s. My mum actually had an apple pendant in green glass with gold embellishments when I was younger, that I adored. So, this set of Apple rings are a must for everyone, and they have a hint of sin surrounding them, with that whole Eve and the Apple thing. The necklace I am wearing is also from Addict, I do so love when Kianna gets accessory inspired, some of my favourite pieces are from her.

Another must have this week, is the Other hair from Elikatira. This style is definitely cutesy, as Elika says herself, and I for one am glad that cutesy is part of her broad repertoire. For another few days the Ch1c Birthday event is on, until the 19th to be exact, and I thought I better pull my finger out and get to showing you more items from it. Realises that yet again I forgot to include the Ballina Beach set that Whimsy and I created for it DOH!, you will just have to go look for yourself at that one.

The clothing items I am wearing are from Magoa – a brand owned by Keira Seerose the Chic Management leader herself – and Cynful. You can of course tell what item is Cynful due to the large amount of my bum showing from the leather tights lol. The Magoa item is actually a more detailed bodysuit/pants set, but I went with the top only, two birds one stone etc.

The skin I am wearing which is also from the event is by Lara Hurley. This skin is Odette and she is definitely impressive. A lovely range of tones, all the appropriate add ons, but it is more the overall features that I am finding really lovely. The eyebrows for one thing really captivated me, they are strong without being overly so. There is a nice blush to the face that can be considered as youthful glow, or just healthy living, and I really like the shape of the mouth/lips, full and petulent without coming off as overly sexified. All in all definitely a skin to try if you haven’t before. DEMO DEMO DEMO.

The shoes I have on are the newest release from SLink, they come with her new HUD, and the ability to walk on a heel the size of a nail. OH MY GOODNESS these shoes are sexy. But not only sexy, incredible created to not show the join of leg to ankle, with only the thinnest of straps. I personally think that these are shoes that should be bought by men, for their women, because there is not much else you would want to wear with them – if you know what I mean WINK WINK .

Toodles…

At the moment Accessory Fair is in full swing, an Egyptian theme that has a lot of room for interpretation. I did go over and have a run through with Newdoll the other night. There were some amazing pieces on show, I picked up a few things while I was there. But do of course plan to go again, I think all fairs should be visited at least a minimum of three times over duration.

The set I am wearing is from MOOD one of the sponsors of the fair, which is located at the DIG sim, the Egiziano Dea set is a beautiful set, comprising of necklace, earrings and double bangle. The earrings have an Ankh look to them which I love, and the overall texturing is a divine mix of metals to create a hammered effect. The effect is gorgeous and really natural, so really perfect for all the natural tones coming out in fashion at the moment.

The colours definitely compliment the new bag by LeLutka part of the Summer 2011 release. Azufr3 Catteneo did an outstanding job on the bags that have been released, four in total, this one is adorable as a small over the shoulder wearable, and I think the added Gerbera flower attached at the front is just so sweet. A big welcome back to him too, as he has been traveling lots lately.

Speaking of the Summer 2011 collection, the Jumpsuit that I am wearing is part of it, the style is of course an all in one, but because of the thickness of the waistcinching belt, you could get away with changing tops which is nice for those that want a more versatile look. You can of course also buy the shorts as a seperate with a cinched upper portion in a more solid colour, so up to you which you feel you will get more use out of. The shorts are sculpted, and even though modify – I am wearing the medium with a minor edit to make a little bigger – you do get also the option of wearing an alpha layer underneath to hide any change of sticky outty bits…there are demos in the store though, so you can try before you buy.

The whole collection is outstanding, and the colours blend so well with either brights or more earthy colours. I am loving the sculpted versatility of the collection, so much funna.

The shoes I am really behind in showing you, are from GOS and are part of the “Pimp up your pumps” range. Not showing all, but these shoes have the option of changing not only the textures in various parts of the shoes, but also the added bonus of bows that you can turn on or off and contrast in colours. I found this a lot of fun especially when it came to the ballet versions, both the strap and maryjane versions.

The hair I am wearing is the Little hair that I mentioned last time, you know the little something release from Elikatira, it is so sweet and loosely styled, with a soft braid down the side at the front. I like hair that looks like you have actually lived in it, or actually do stuff in your day, like in RL how a tightly pinned do can end up with all sorts of strays throughout the day.

* heartfelt warm wishes go out to Cajsa today, who is in the process of losing her beloved cat. Losing a pet is devastating, and having to choose to do what is best for him/her over your own wants is incredibly hard to do. We love you Cajsa, all the best to you and your cat Cliff.

Pantaloons

Have you ever wondered what time period you would live in, if you were to travel back in time, or where born in another time. I remember being little and totally feeling that I should have lived somewhere between the 30’s and 60’s. I knew for certain that I wanted to be a doo wap girl – have no idea how to spell that, but you know the ones, the ones behind the lead singer doing all the back up vocals.

I also loved the fashion so much from those decades, even so far as the 20’s. But then wouldn’t being a teen in the 50’s or 60’s have been awesome too, I was obsessed with Gidget and Moondoggy, OMG he was so hot. Mind you that is just me being so Australian Americanised that I want everything to be like my favourite T.V shows. But then I also think about the fact that I adore bloomers, well pantaloons really, and all the layers and finery that comes with the era further back.

Can’t you just picture yourself in Gone with the Wind land lol. Trouble is I know nothing bout birthin no babies either, and as for the war, well no not interested. I kind of picture it being like Ever After with Drew Barrymore, but before the father dies, and when it is just him and her. Not terribly wealthy, but enough to not have to do anything really but be a Lady of the Court, oh and have someone tie up all my corset laces, because seriously, can you imagine having to do all that stuff yourself?

Anywho, there hasn’t been a time in my life that I haven’t loved the concept of pantaloons, the hippie revival look of a chemise top and baggy bloomers in crisp white. A barwench that is only tending bar to infiltrate some big conspiracy against the King, I have an overactive imagination I know. That is what makes Second Life so wonderful, we can be and do all those things if we want to , either by just dressing the part, or starting our own or joining another RP colony of sorts.

So if you need some of the fineries, or just want to feel all summery and carefree, then the new L’abel release is a MUST HAVE, not only in crisp white, but there are prints and colours in different styles and variations of this release. The styles are all super feminine and girly girl, you will squee with delight.

New hair from Elikatira too, called Something, I do admit that when I saw something and Little, the other style, I did IM Elika and ask for a something II so I could have a little something something. Butfor now I will have to settle for just a little something lol. The necklace I am wearing is from MIAO, a beautiful pendant, that comes on a ribbon with bow, now I admit that I wish there was a no bow option, or even a bow at back option, but regardless the pendant is divine and the length and shape of the neck portion is perfect.

The skin I am wearing which just like the necklace is for Ch1c’s Birthday event, is from Mynerva, it is called Bianca and has many tones and cleavage options, as well as smaller breast shading. It is very youthful which is kind of a thing when it comes to Mynerva skins in the past, but I would say that this one is a nice middle ground, youthful but not too young. So definitely give it a try and welcome back to Mynerva 🙂

Hey Ch1c it’s your birthday

Ch1c

Ok so Chic Management is having one last hurrah before summer is upon us, and that hurrah just happens to coincide with their one year anniversary. So what better way to do so than with a big bash, and what is the most funna about this event, is that everyone whether on purpose or just coinkydink, ended up making items that can totally be party wear.

On the left we have the stunning jeans from Tuttu Frutti, you know I am a huge fan of her print work and these just left me satisfied – I almost needed a cigarette after. The top I have on is from the House of Fox set, but I liked the combo a lot to mix and match with. My new love is the League release, but not the actual dresses, even though they are lovely, but OMG thank you Nena for releasing the belt portion as a seperate item, and the fat pack is a steal, I will be wearing those lots and lots.

The hair I have on is Voodoo, the 2011 version, as this was a style created for Kavars very first Hair Fair and one we met over…awww memories, he was so sweet and still is. It comes in the new roots options as well as the fun streaks options in all of the colours on the bangs portion of the hair. Just click and pick.

The other hair I have on is from Shag, this style is so pretty and fun, pulled back in the areas its needed so bits don’t get in your drinks as you party hearty. Make sure if you are a Shag fan you check out that they are also running their own competition for the upcoming Hair Fair. The winner gets to be the model for their HF release ads, and last years ads were so gorgeous.

Ducknipple not only dressed for the party, but also made a delightful necklace to go with this awesomely adorable party frock. Tiered perfection t makes me think of cake, which is ideal, and the black and pink goes so well with the black and pink feature parts of the Nardcotix leopard print heels. They are really pretty and fun to wear, and with solids like the outfit, the print is really cute.

Lastly on the right is my military party look, this creation is from sYs, and as usual really inspired fun, their sci fi style is great to wear to any occasion, but really has an impact at dressier event. I have paired this and the first look with the lovely new skully pumps from Lassitude and Ennui, they are a really nice kitten heel height, so if you aren’t a huge fan of high high heels, these are definitely worth checking out.

The prop and pose for the last shot is from aDORKable, the Official Hair Fair Posemakers, who have done it again with this prop/pose set. Can’t you just see a line of beauties all lined up in the powder room checking their make up, and applying more, and if no room they even included a hand mirror.

The make up I am applying is the Chelle eyeliner, and it is on top of the Odette skin by Lara Hurley. A lovely faced skin and stunning body, so be sure to demo demo demo.

Every single item shown today is from the Ch1c event, so be sure to check it out before the 19th when it ends. It starts tonight at midnight, and goes until then. Ch1c Event Slurl

While you are there you might also want to check out the collab that Whimsy and I did, under her brand W.Winx, it was a lot of fun to make, and we love the outcome, hope you do too.

I feel you shiver, with anticipation…

Wow aren’t my posts few and far between lately. I was in a slump for a bit, but I got some of my mojo back thankfully. Now I am just busy with the other fine committee members for Hair Fair preparations, but that is not until July 2nd so make sure and mark your calenders for Accessory Fair that starts before that.

New hair came out last week from Elikatira. As a fan of Elikas for many years, it makes me happy to see her making some of her classic styles again, not the same by any means, but along the line of some of her most famous uppydo’s. I have always been a fan of her half up and down hairstyles too, so this release of Break and Leah was with much joy.

Last night Whimsy and I were out shopping, and we came across a Sur+ satelite, yay for satelite stores because they really do remind you to visit the mains.As soon as I saw the items I have on it was love, the dress floored me, if it looked half as good on as it did on the rack I was in heaven, and it lived up to the vendor and more. Everything about this vintage classic style is pure love, I hope and pray that Sur+ has an urge to release these in other colours and prints, maybe a lighter cotton for summer…whatever she does I just need more.

The second print I bought I decided to just wear as a top with the great gaucho pants, also from Sur+. So very versatile and it is a whole new collection which you can actually buy as one big fat pack, unfortunatly I only saw that option after the fact, so be sure to look out for it. To bring out some of the blue in the print I am wearing the Yip Collection tote bag from BOOM, these are only available in some locations, one of them being their The Deck satelite – which makes me cheesey happy.

The other blue comes from the incredible new Mischa shoes from LeLutka, now in the composite image I have one pair missing, those are the colour I am wearing in the first pic, I ran out of squares lol. Not only is there a solids pack and a collage pack – the mixed straps variety – but you get an option on the hud with this release to change the soles colours WOOHOOO, so you really get three pairs of shoes in one, an awesome option and lots of fun, because now co-ordinating is so much easier.

I really love how the straps wrap around the ankle, done so well as to not look like they have to cover up that join of av leg to sculpty foot. Also the heel is amazing, as either a platform style or cut out wedge, it depends on how you want to phrase it. But either way stop talking about them and just love wearing them, like I am going to…
