A – Z Challenge – Y you so good looking

Y 2015

I have a folder in my inventory, probably everyone does, that is called STUFF! it is really actually called !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!STUFF  because exclamation marks take items to the top of your inventory, so anything I want to be important has a lot of those before the name.

This will make more sense as I go on. So todays feature letter with my Reversed A – Z Challenge, is Y, and it was a no brainer that I covered Yummy and YS&YS, as both stores are worn possibly the most throughout the year by me in some way or another.

Now the items that are Y related in the Stuff folder are my rings. These delights were a gacha item by Yummy, and they became staples for a long time, that is why they were in my Stuff folder, as it is where most of my Stuff always worn resides.

I love Yummy items, especially when she gravitates towards collectible and somewhat sentimental creations…which I have blogged in the past. She also has a very real sense of humour so sometimes the items are a bit on the over the top side, but definitely worth grabbing what works for you.

The new bells necklace for C88 is so pretty , comes in gold or silver options and has a real elegant look to it with the tied off satin bow…very festive. Loving the yellow in my rings, I added some statement earrings as well from an older release, and I am loving the whole look.

YS&YS have always been a favourite skin creator, but since making appliers we have all just been so lucky to have such an incredibly wide range of beautiful options. They make such lovely skins and make up options, that they do on the heads I wear, Slink Visage and LeLutka, as well as others…so you need to give them a whirl.

They also have a collection of décor and accessories to tantalise you, so a fun location to check out in your skin perusing travels.

Hairology has just started again for its second month, and going great guns. This style is by Vanity Hair, and you can get it and all of the other great styles at the Hairology event for the rest of the month. This style is so glamorous if you want it to be, but also lends itself to being very easy to wear…more please Tabata 🙂

A – Z Challenge 2015 – ZZzzzzz

Z 2015

A lot of years ago I did the A-Z challenge that Willow Zander ran. A bloggers challenge, but not limited to only bloggers, everyone was invited to have a whirl at it. She has brought it back, and it has been four years since I last did it, and oh my goodness I tracked down the pics from the last time, and I barely recognised myself. I remember making up one look specifically but some of the others I didn’t even know they were me.

Now it seems I got as far as “I” last time, time constraints and all that, and Whimsy and I have often talked about it, picking it back up and so on. Today I decided to be naughty and start at the end, because well I am a big believer in bloggers fate, and Zaara has released another wonderful item for Collabor88, so it just seemed to be saying ME ME ME choose ME.

I am loosely following the rules though, because while in the past every item was of the letter, I really want to make it more about the Store name if possible so chose two Z’s to feature. The rest of the items are from those other letters :).

This is not Zaara’s first foray into scarves, and while the last that I remember were gorgeous sculpts versions, these mesh ones just blow those away. I hope she goes all out with more options for her store in the coming months, as the weather is definitely permitting for it. You get rigged tight and rigged for over clothing options as well as an unrigged version, so you are definitely covered shape and gender wise.

Using the other clothes option, I went with another recent release of Zaara’s that is this lovely tunic shirt dress she released a few weeks ago. It was made as a Maitreya sizing, but fits Slink body really well with the help of some alpha cuts using the body hud. You can purchase solid or floral print options, and there are sheer versions as well. Definitely something easy to wear and a great go to item for a quick dress and dash look, that with the help of some great leggings and so on, will look great.

While on the leggings stockings kind of bandwagon though, I am putting it out there that Zaara turns her much older leggings collection into appliers for mesh bodies, because those were gorgeous, and we need that kind of staple in our wardrobes – just saying.

I actually went with some zebra stockings this time though, because well Z and all that.

The other Z feature is Zerkalo, I have a few bits and pieces from gachas from them over the past year, but these items are also C88 pieces. The cute side-table, the champagne bucket and glasses, and the trees that I shrunk down and made table décor instead….love modify décor, you can have such fun with it. The pieces bring that holiday vibe into the home.

Carrying on with the black and red I grabbed this great tartan chair, could not resist the cookies, and the horse toy is a divine nod to hand-crafted toys of old.

Rounding out the red, with these gorgeous new boots, that fit like a dream and were the perfect cherry red to compliment my whole ensemble. I feel very festive indeed.

Now you can all see me do Z and think, we better catch up, Sasy is already at the end….maybe we will meet in the middle

A Hazy Shade of Winter

A Hazy Shade of Winter

Whimsy told me my tummy will get frostbite, but seeing as its a thousand degrees HOT down here, I am not too worried. Mixing the charming oversized wrap coat from Emery, with the fantastic boots by Pure Poison for the bases of this look.

The boots with all their parts texture change with the fantastic hud when using the fatpack, made it possible to colour co-ordinate them together perfectly. Then with the addition of the RGB hud to the SLink bodies..I was able to select the layer my leggings are on and tint them the little extra they needed to be a proper grey for the pic. Just don’t forget to take the tint off, or you will end up thinking things are broken in the future.

This ready for the day look is great. everything about it makes it easy on the eye and easy to take into any setting, that is what you want from your wardrobe.

Loving this long long hair by Exile, it is so wonderful how it cascades down the back. It has that smooshy rub rub flick thing going on at the front too (girls know what I mean) to get it out of the face.

You still have time to visit Collabor88 before the round ends, so make sure you grab all the goodies.

Who’s There

Who's there

Everything old is new to someone, has always been my motto with blogging. With the amount of events and the constant stream of newness every day now, I had let my mixing and matching old with new down a little.

This used to be one of my favourite things to do, combine older gown skirts with newer uppers…and it felt like a lost art with the bringing about of mesh and then mesh bodyparts. I was inspired though with the NEW confetti bodysuit by Luxuria…this was a My Attic release just gone, so if you got it there then yay, otherwise you will need to go to the store to grab yours. It has such an elegant look to it, and I knew that if I found the right lower part, it would be all win.

I went back to 2010, not only back five years, but back to an old Gift item from LeLutka made of SCULPTS!. This is the one thing since mesh that I am surprised we do not see more of, big over the top creations like this gown was. I love how this looks with the bodysuit from Luxuria, and I am sorry if you are too young to have this gift, or you have cleaned out your inventory from long ago, but it shows that some things need keeping.

But this is more of an inspiring post, urging you to get your own formal occasion look, that means you can be the belle of the ball, and have no one have what you have, because in a way you made it yourself.

The perfect backdrop for this look was with the Anc staircase from The Arcade, that is just divine looking, and well worth the effort of playing for it.
