Laced and Hutched

Laced Up


My first post of the year, it seems like I was slacking I am sure, but alas no cable for the first few weeks of the year. Huge clumps of Sydney were down, and my area was the worst apparently. If anyone in SL works for my service provider, I apologise for the screaming. I should probably apologise to my neighbors as well , there was so much rage. The first thing I did when I logged in, was rez the NEW Maitreya item from Collabor88, ripped open the boxes to find the lace overlay of the vintage lace gown…hoping that it was as I knew it would be. To my delight it was, a separate piece, that meant I could wear it exactly how I wanted to, with the couture leggings, and this great bra from Faenzo. Then to top it off the vintage posture collar, also by Maitreya.

Because the stunning piece is lace, it does mean its loaded with alpha channels, so do make sure you wear a hairstyle that is non rigged, or above the shoulders, so it doesn’t cut into the dress. Another item I could not wait to wear, the Volta shoes by League…now you need to just run over to League right now, regardless of what you like, because she is having a HUGE 50% OFF Sale – not all the newer items are included in the sale, but honestly you could do some real damage with all the older items as well.

The shoes are amazing, with so many features in the hud, especially if you have the fat pack! The fatpack allows for mixing of colours, so you can have pink and red shoes, or blue and brown and so on. There are also great metalic options for the glorious studs.

I wanted to also show some of the delightful furniture pieces from this round of C88. The hutch by Pilot is definitely a great staple for any home, I am sure with all the collectibles many acquire from events like The Arcade, this is a nice piece to have. The other fantastic piece, is the Astrid chair by Trompe Loeil, this chair is a great take on a windsor seat, and I love the bucket style and high armrests. The whole thing comes in at 3LI which is just an incredible demonstration of great modeling from Cory Edo, to keep so much detail but not run up the LI. The hutch is also only 3LI, so Pilot and Trompe Loeil are definitely must visit stores when next decorating your home.

My Attic is up and going strong, all items are 95L each for the duration, and the nails I am wearing are some of my own I created for the event. So make sure you go and visit and scoop up all the goodies.

Special mention, the AMAZING art work behind me, is a RL drawing by Monica Outlander of MiaMai and was a gift to me. You can actually purchase her real life drawings from Etsy, so if on the lookout for true works of art, give them a look, her work is INCREDIBLE! A Looking Glass
