Parnts

Parnts
So earlier today KMADD had some mens pants happening, and early on in my Second Life, I was a Manager of a menswear store – how I met Grazia Horwitz actually, she was doing an article on women wearing mens clothing – and as I wore mens suits and other items all the work day, I had to have a look. The pants are gorgeous two tone wool pants, and even though the sizing is a little different, and there was a tiny bit of clipping at my hips, nothing a slight shape change wouldn’t fix…the pants are just too good to let men have all to themselves.

Maybe we an encourage KMADD to make them for girls too, but until then, demo away, and if they work for you, then do as I did and wear them. The new wool cardigan from Maitreya, hid the clipping so no shape change needed, but overall the look is just fabulously fashionable. The cardigan will fit with many looks, and its lovely wool texture is suitable well into spring.

The pants are made for men, so heels are not going to work too well with them, unless you can move them around a bit, but I opted for the Mila flats from Ingenue, add on shoes for the flat slink feet. The contrast of tones throughout the look make me very happy, and the oversized bag from Ison, just adds to the charm.

Finishing off the look is the glorious new hair from Lelutka, Trevail. I have a feeling I am going to live in this hair for a while, the centre part has a great 70’s vibe to it, and I just really like everything about it.

Whimsy Tagged Me

Tagged

Sometimes I think you think I exaggerate about the Whimsy Winx of naughtiness. I got an IM last week from Sofia, asking what the huge glowing boxes were all over the studio. So I had to explain to Whimsy that she has to stop trying to grief me, as I am not the only one using the area lol. So two days ago I log in to my studio and my work area TAGGED!

Seriously as I have said before, if she put as much effort into things that she does on being naughty with me, it would be a greater world. She just landed as I am typing this, and she doesn’t speak, just photo bombs me, not knowing HA I have already done my pics. But now she is taking ‘Selfies’ beside me. The most entertaining person ever she is.

I was wearing most of this outfit yesterday in the post I did on Serious Request, and had to leave the main portions on for todays post. SySy spent an age creating these fabulous tweed skirts, and they also come in a denim version, must haves and so well modeled.  The denim and the stitching is all hand made, no sourcing, and she even created her own SY button for full effect, very cool, and they will be marvelous for all seasons, so they are a fast favourite.

The jacket was an older release from Elate, and fits well over the skirt, as do most things, as it was made to sit low enough. The jacket has a great equestrian feel to it. Wearing with the gorgeous Demi boots from Slink, if you didn’t get during Shoetopia, you need to go get them now for sure. They work with the High feet that are also NEW.

Other NEWNESS are my poses, and accessories by Meisu, a new store that has some great items and at fantastic prices. I love the rings, which are a steal fatpack wise, and come in gold and silver versions, as do the bags. The clutch is so cool I even overlooked the fact that the inside is purple, my only wish would be to have that texture change, but even without, it is delish.

I am wearing another of the great Birdy skins from The Arcade, I am fully addicted to the Blair face, and adding the teeth tattoo from Amacci, just makes me super happy.

Serious Request – A Serious Event

Serious Request 1

Serious Request 2

Serious Request 3

Serious Request 4

Serious Request 5

Serious Request 6

When I joined SL back in 06, you could not take a step without meeting a Dutch person. They were everywhere, and added so much to Second Life as a large community of people, proud and passionate. I remember going to the Amsterdam sim, and just walking along the waterways, and enjoying the little stores that were built along there. There was also a huge club and other Amsterdam like activities, but I was enamored by the replication of the city more so.
The Dutch have always been so happy and helpful in Second Life, I think they are hugely responsible for many staying here and going on to making a really big mark on Second Life as a whole, and definitely so when it comes to the Fashion community. Two such lovely creators are of course SySy Chapman, and Mina Nakamura, who are both part of an inspiring event that is annually held in both SL and RL.

The Serious Request event is going on right now in Second Life, and starts tomorrow in RL. Where in both places DJ’s are locked inside a Glass house for many days, and do not eat during that time. They do 4 hour shift on air, and play requests that are given to them from the donating public. This is an amazing thing and raises a huge amount of money in RL for such great causes. You can find information about this years cause on their website HERE . You can do your part by tping over to the event, and giving support by not only donating , but also moral support for the people giving of their time, to commit to this wonderful event. I spent a few hours there this evening with SySy Chapman and Sofia Gray, as well as the lovely hostesses – One of which is getting married in the Glass house tomorrow – and the DJ, and the owner of the Sim Tyrek. Not only was it fun to see all the chatter in Dutch, but they were so friendly and spoke in english even though I was the only english speaker there, the Dutch are incredibly hospitable, another thing they are world wide famous for in my opinion, well Down Under they are definitely known for it :).

There are items being auctioned on boards, as well as huge donation boards at the dance area, and you can click on the panel at the glass house to let the DJ know your requests as you donate. No amount is too small, and everything you donate encourages everyone involved. At the end of the event – the reason that the SL one ends before the RL one – the money raised in SL is taken to the real Glass House event, and donated…and from what SySy tells me, this is just a glorious thing to be part of here in Second Life, and as well in Real Life.

There is also the coolest bar of soap you can buy on the website, that has CLEAN as raised text, and I think its great, I have to check if they deliver my way, because I want one. If you don’t want to donate in SL that would be a great way to do your part, its only 5 Euros which SySy says is about 1500L.

SySy also has items in her mainstore, that you can purchase that donate to the event, as well as an upcoming Auction item that will be Auctioned on the same day as Mina’s , which is this Thursday, so try and head on over for that.

You can see other information on the Serious Request SL website HERE. As I mentioned, go , visit, say hello and show support any way you can, whether by donating, or spreading the word, or just going and meeting new people and supporting the people involved that are also going without food in RL just like the main event.

Thank you to

Tyrek Resident

as well as everyone else that was there during the event while I was, thank you all so much for doing what you do to help those that need it.

Blissful Walking

One of the new participants in the most recent Hair Fair, was Deco, and it was great to see their creations, and their booth style. I fell instantly in love with two of their styles, one was for men, and had a beard, but I loved it. The other style was the one I am wearing today, Bobby. This style is just perfect with everything I am wearing, and the stray hair across the front of the face just adds so much appeal to this wintry look.

Collabor88 opened yesterday, and wow at the incredible warmness spreading joy across Second Life. The first time at the event, is Maitreya, and what a way to kick off the year, with this oversized coat and panel leggings. The coat has shorter sleeve options or extensions, I think that they are a lot of fun, because you can mix and match with various other coat colours, or even wear the extensions with other items. I went matchy though with this look, and pulled out an old favourite turtleneck Savoir from Maitreya to slip into underneath.

The Yummy release is this amazing infinity scarf in the biggest softest yarn available. The colours compliment eachother perfectly, true to Collabor88 tradition. I have an odd thing about cool feet when I am warm though, so without bundling into too much, seeing it is a sweltering 90 degrees where I am right now… I went with the lovely mary jane saddle shoes from Sax Shepherd, that are add ons for the Slink Flat feet.

Sax has been making splendid add ons, and started out as a jewellery store, so I look forward to seeing them grow from that, into a really wonderful accessories and footwear store. The shoes come with a huge hud, with many options, so you will have a lot of fun with them. The skin I am wearing is another of the Birdy skins at The Arcade, I am so happy with this skin, it really is just gorgeous, in every different tone and type it comes with, I have to go and get some more when I have time, every time I get a new one, it is just more love.

The location for this shoot was actually at The Deck , thanks to the very talented and bratty Whimsy Winx, who likes to just change the sim at a moments notice, and pouts and sooks until I let her. As many times as I say NO, she has a comeback as to why I should, and just continues to rez things regardless of what I say. She certainly makes the sim beautiful though, so stop by and have a look yourself, if you need some great snow and trees, or just feel like ‘chillin’.

Adventageous

Adventageous

When I was little no one explained to me what an advent Calendar was. I got one as a gift, and proceeded to eat all the chocolates in one day, and got a terrible tummyache. I actually never got one again after that. It wasn’t until Second Life really that I got to understand the concept of them. A small gift a day for the 25 days until Christmas. Seems like a lot of spoiling to me, but then I was spoiled at Christmas by my Mummy anyway.

This year, we are being spoiled by Trompe Loeil in a novel way. This months The Arcade is full of beautiful items, but this Advent Calendar is its own piece of art, decoratively speaking. The Calendar is actually free at the front of the Gatcha machine, and then you play for keys. The keys must be rezzed on the ground near the tree and by doing so, the tree unlocks a door and you will see a miniature gift, and then that gift is sent to you life sized. The first being this beautiful Recycled Wood photoframe. It is really lovely, and each play on the machine is only 25L, so however many keys you get, you can swap doubles with friends to get them all.

Other beautiful items include this Christmas table and plate of cookies by Apple Fall. The cookies are delicious looking, and I love that these types of ideas are now things that people do in RL with food as gifts. The table is also so gorgeous, it will really enhance your home.

Another exciting thing about this The Arcade, is that Exile has made clothing, and by clothing I mean an all in one dress and hair look, that also has hud options of different fabrics and colours depending on the rares you get from the gatchas. I am definitely excited about this, as I do hope it will mean even more clothing from Exile. Peeking through the hood is the face from Glam Affair called Gemma. sweet and youthful, so much so that I am even wearing the freckles options.

Finishing off the look with the stunning sling back shoes by Ingenue, that are also from The Arcade. Everytime Betty Doyle makes add on shoes for the Slink feet, they just get better and better and more imaginative, and these would have to be a fast favourite, with the peeptoe front and slingback with a pretty ribbon bow embelishment, they are delish.

Squirreled Away

Squirreled Away

Whimsy and I spent the morning doing the rounds of all the incredible Yard Sales on for The Arcade event. You can find a huge list of them on the fantastic Seraphim SL Website HERE . We do also visit The Arcade itself, we actually both love the event, but because we are not overly fussed about ‘what’ to get, as we generally like it all, we tend to pick up bits and pieces at the sales, so that the sellers can go back and spend even more.

Must Haves for me though were the Sleepy Eddy Engineer Boots, that are made for a larger foot, most likely mens, but they are editable, and were a breeze to edit. Once I edited one to fit, I used the copy and paste options in Firestorms edit tab to transfer the same sizing to the other boots. They really are beautiful work, and look great with the pieces I am wearing from Collabor88. The theme for this past month has been industrial chic, and honestly I have really enjoyed the items that were created for it. You will have a lot of fun mixing and matching, and this sweater from UFO is a great zipper sided loose look, great for layering over mesh pants, or system ones like I am wearing.

To finish off the look, my new little friend Squirrel is made by Anya Ohmai. Honestly if it wasn’t for her and her sister Suetabulous Yootz, I think that Sl would be a different place, they definitely add some of the most endearing creations to the world, and they are as beautiful on the inside,  as their creations are on the outside.
