Two different tones in the same skin, can really change a look and a feel for the same make ups. It can change a dismal day into something really fun and joyful, or it can better reflect a more somber mood.

I often feel that way with skins, and being able to actually swap from tone to tone can really change everything about a day. I have been flat out lately, and have actually been negligent in inventory sorting, so much that it got overwhelming. I have even been running to the same folders to put on in a hurry, as a mad dash and suitable look go to, and that is very unusual for me, but one folder that kept repeating was definitely the first and second dress today.

I found myself wanting to put it on many times, just because it was pretty and made me happy with it’s swish swish. Also the fabulous Promenade boots from Kalnins ended up being the ones I most enjoyed with the dress, kind of a mix of dressy casual, that I am dressing to look like I didn’t try look, but we all know it took planning to put together lol.

Depending on what look you are going for, both the boots, which are texture change and a fabulous take on the cowboy boot, making a sexier ankle boot version, also with texture change metal features, and even glow …with the Jocelyn dress from DeLa come up a treat. Also as the dress comes in great solid colours, but also on every layer, I used the opportunity to pull out an oldie but a goodie clothing layer belt from Diversity called Adena. Clothing layer belts can be a fun way to totally change the look of something, and if they are on all layers, they are priceless.

The addition of some accessories and a fabulous hairstyle from OH , Whimsy and I went to OH last week and bought it out, I think that Fhaya Denimore better hurry up and make more, they are all delightful and really well priced, all of the hair I am wearing today is from OH..so be sure to check it out, if you haven’t already.

Now back to the divine DeLa, the Jocelyn in black with the bits and pieces is definitely a night out look, where as the Jocelyn dress in the red with the addition of the Sweater Wrap in white, also from DeLa makes it more of a casual smart day look, or maybe even an early date ending with a nice stroll along the beach – made sure I wasn’t corny enough to say promenade ;).

The next two sets by DeLa, are SEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXY.

Not just the overall looks, but also the colours, the grey I couldn’t get into fast enough in the Lita Set, now I am wearing a camisole that is a separate item with this today, only because due to all different skins and how people make them, there is a slight showing of nipple in this skin/set combo, it is not that way for all but it is something you do need to take into account, as do the designers creators. It was also the tiniest sliver but I don’t show, so it was not something I could just let slide without letting you know.

But because of this, I was able to do a less naughty look, but in my opinion just as, if not more sexy. The Legwarmers come with the Lita set, and they are just fabulous too, I can see wearing those with many things, and maybe if we are lucky Kura will box them up separately or something similar in the future, because with the upcoming cooler weather for many, these are just all sorts of fun.

The other set in that killer sexy red, is the Lisa set , and just YUM, the colours this set comes in are just marvelous. Strapless and provocative, with the added half sleeves, and those slouchy thigh highs, all too yummy. Because of the way it is built as well, you could so totally mix and match colours from one set to another, and make your own fabulous combination’s.

The skin I am wearing with these looks is all by Fishy Strawberry, and the skin is LAN in the Latte and Cappuccino tones. They are not so far apart tone wise, but the overall effect of them is so different I had to show both this way. The make ups are just lovely, not overly done, yet with a really nice selection of both eyes and lips, as well as hairbases in light and dark, and just because she could, Fae has added hair to be worn with the bases , in the packs.

Where the Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are

Tonight I was blessed to be invited as a guest stylist on Fabulous Fashion TV here in Second Life, hosted by Angie Mornington. It was a great show, and I think I managed to not speed talk through my whole portion of it, I am not a hundred percent sure though lol.

The guest designer was Tyr Rozenblum, and as a special treat one of her models was Bubbles Clawtooth, which was way exciting for the audience and us hair fans I am sure. So after the show, not during, as I was too nervous to look at anyone – I was able to see the fun clothing worn by the models, one such outfit that stood out from the rest for me, and Whimsy – yays that she was there to help me through – was the Just Hope set, based on the incredible childrens book “Where the Wild Things are ” I loved that book so much as a child, as I am sure you and yours do still to this day.

So as soon as we could depart we were off and running to get ourselves that awesome set…you can just buy the hoodie on its own but for 100L more you get the whole look, and the jeans are way too much funna to leave behind. So Whimsy and I are right now as I type this hanging out at The Deck , in our awesome outfits, and Whimsy is dancing on the table lol.

After there we went to Tableau to grab the Halloween special hair by Bubbles Clawtooth, he has four special sets out for only 75L and I ended up taking some pics while we were there.

With the upcoming colder weather you definitely need such an adorable outfit to snuggle up in, and a wooden scepter to donk people with lol.

“And now,” cried Sasy, “let the wild shopping start!”

TBH

Have fun with Polaroids

Skin Creator

The Body Politik have been around since way before I arrived in Second Life. Creating skins for Men and Women in a variety of looks and skintones. Now they have gone a step further, giving you the customer the ability to personalise your look.

This process is not new, it has been offered in the past, but I would have to say with my own experience, that The Body Politik have put countless hours, if not weeks into making this as user friendly as possible. DEMOS are pretty much instant, as they have pre-made every conceivable variation in advance.

Be aware though, that if you choose facial ink you will not get that in the demo, as it would probably mean another thousand or so variations.

I gave this beauty a spin, and was able to choose for the skin you see above ,  a Cocoa skin tone – which is the darkest at this time – Flirt Eye MakeUp  and Storm Lipstick, with of course, who could resist a beauty mark…then I couldn’t resist a pouty lips option either. You can also choose freckles, and brows options.

Mind you while I was doing this, I actually had Mel on the Infinity Skins website at the same time choosing what he liked, as he has to look at me in the finished product, and it kind of makes the decision more of a shared experience. I really enjoyed that aspect of it a lot.

Then moving on to the body, I am not one for tattoos permanently but many are, and a basic range of tats to wear on the actual skin not just clothing layers is fabulous, even though those kinds of enhancements are shown to you in the demo as clothing layers – again to help with how many variations they had to provide to make the process easier for you.

I chose the athletic stomach, and I also really liked the fact that you could choose what nipples you wished to have, there is a great range, and as the shaved down there option was default that of course stayed as is :P, but you do have every other option in dark, blonde or brunette shades.

Being able to see the demo a few moments after I made all my choices was great, even without the beauty mark I was able to know that it was a skin that looked good on my shape, and that I was really going to enjoy wearing…because YUM on the pouty lips, and the body is divine.

When you get the skins, you will get a base skin which will look just like the demo, and then within 48 hours you will get the final custom, so when you pay for your purchase after deciding on the demo, you are able to leave with one skin ready to wear. So make sure you give it a whirl, if you are wanting something a bit more your own.

Now about those polaroids, I was searching online for goodness knows what, and somehow came across this delightful desktop creation, that to me is PURE GENIUS. This software will actually put a realistic looking Polaroid Camera on your desktop, which you then drag any picture to and it will pop out a Polaroid picture for you.

So for those of you without photo editing skills, who want a fun way to feature your pictures, this is right up your alley, I have dragged a bmp. straight from SL saved to hard drive and to the camera, and out it comes, it even makes the exact noise a real one does. The fun thing is you can even shake it with your mouse just like real ones, it will then save to your documents > pictures folder ready for you to upload to Flickr or wherever you want it. I then used the editing program in flickr and adding the text and kiss.

Taste the Rainbow

She came, she saw, she kicked it. Seriously Anya OhMai is another reason to love all that Second Life offers. Starting SL in march of this year, she has absolutely nailed it, starting as an enthusiastic fashion lover, to blogger, to designer in such an incredibly short amount of time.
Oh1
Sofia IM’s me yesterday and told me I was going to get a delivery, and I did, in the form of a multitude of incredible colours and styles. That quickly followed by a TP to the OhMai main store where I proceeded to buy up the rest of it. The colours are the first thing you notice, arranged in beautiful packs at ridiculously low prices. Staples are the first thing that comes to mind, there are so many Must Have items in there, it’s insane.

My first new addiction are the sheer leggings, they stop just below the heel, making them super fabulous, and they are not only semi sheer , but RIBBED. There are a variety of colour packs, that all blend so well with everything in the store.

The Catherine blouse I am wearing is a new item in the OhMai store, it is definitely fabulous in it’s somewhat Chanel look, and a FANTASTIC use of the system skirt, you know how much I love it when people put it to such a great use as this one.

The black and white combo, with the accessories from Glow Studio’s is a definite winner, the Seasons Bag Winter bag is a great carryall, for extra shopping of Must Have items.

Oh2
Could the Emma Ruffles dress be more adorable, I don’t think so. I mean first off when I put it on I had the without white skirt portion and I was in love with it, then I realised there was another skirt choice, and I squeeled. Not only again do they go with the wonderful leggings, but I only wore the sock portion of one pair, and it’s too funna. Seriously with this colour palette that Anya is using , you can literally “taste the rainbow” :P.
Oh3
Three years ago now, when Fiachra of Essentia was making the hair roses, we absolutely loved the Pink Hawaiian rose , and now I have the perfect way to wear it. The thumbelina dresses are so creative and just delicately beautiful. They would make perfect Fae wear, but the style and grace of these dresses makes them just incredible cocktail dresses for all.

There are actually two skirt options in these too, but I loved the bloom ones, and what’s not to love in a formal dress that turns into swimwear, because we all know what can happen at those upmarket occasions when the press go home.
Oh4
Due to the limits of the mesh and clothing layers, in the past we were unable to get a lot of shape out of our clothing, that has changed a lot with the implementation of sculpted prims, and OhMai has been pushing that envelope.

The Nina Sweaters give you the best little bubble butt ever. The shape and style of these oversized sweaters is fabulous, the extra detailing in the pockets and buttoned sleeves, as well as the adorable hoody attachment at the back. Again because of the design in these sweaters, you are able to wear contrasting or complimentary colours underneath, to tie it all in.

I am wearing the High Rise tanks with these , and believe me when you see the prices of the packs of these, you will think Anya has lost her marbles. But then you can be overly appreciative, because it free’s up more money for everything else in the store lol.
Oh5

Lastly and one of the reasons it all came about, as Sofia fell for this beautiful Pocket Cardigan and who can blame her, I must have grabbed everyone of those as well, the colours, shape and overall idea of them is marvy, they have a definite vintage  look to them, and I am so all into that.

Wearing them over the high rise tanks, and bringing it all together with the Mo Pocket pants from Miel, these pants I have shown in the past, but they definitely deserve to keep on returning, another fantastic use of prims to enhance the whole look.

All of the hair I am wearing today is from KC, Kitsune Couture, a store now owned by Niennra Kitsune of Magika fame. Niennra branched out on her own recently, and has been creating hair and clothing under her own label, so make sure you check out her new items. One of the styles shown is actually a gift from her Subscribo , so make sure you join that when you visit.

The shoes are all from Tesla, and I was blessed to find that her colour palette range, as much as it varies from style to style, allowed for some great matchy matchy colours with the OhMai range. Still loving the Carina skin by LAQ I kept it on for this post, to give you another taste, just in case you didn’t already go and demo it yet.

Pip Pip old pal

So today I woke up and checked my emails as I was logging in. There was an offline from a designer who’s store I featured a few years ago, letting me know he still remembered that the first time he appeared in a blog it was by me, and that now he had his own store blog.
I thought that was so sweet, and was excited to see some items I hadn’t seen of his on the blog. Yes I did go and search out his store every few months, but nothing that I didn’t already have, until today. So as soon as I logged in and sorted through everything I had to , I was off and running.

I also checked out another store, then came home. Trying on all my new outfits I remembered that I had meant to swing by Refuge, so off I went again, and got two more styles to show with my other Refuge hair. I really like the hair produced by Refuge, especially with the straight across rock-a-billy bangs. The first style has the most adorable bows and pins decorating the pigtails look.

All the clothing I am wearing is from SK Designs, they have been around since 2007 and their look has changed a bit, but not too much over that time. The creator Sergio designs for both men and women, but I think from the style of clothing he does, that he probably enjoys making for women a bit more. The ensembles are sold as sets, so all you see is all you get, and sometimes more, depending on if there are other coloured tops or both long and shorter pants, etc. The prices are really reasonable and transfer, so if you are looking at buying items that you can share with your other selves, this is perfect.

The skins I am wearing are the Cleo skins from Dutch Touch, with more leaning towards the more creative of make ups in the range, the punk and pip make ups are a fun change. The eye make ups are especially gorgeous, and I have been wearing the punk skins on and off for the last few days, I love the liner on the inner part of the eyes.

Old boots in the form of the 3way Engineer boots from J’s, teamed up with the brand new Rea Suede plain boots by Pixel Mode, these are delightful , in a range of colours that you can co-ordinate with a vast range of seasonal choices. The style are simple but elegant, they have a semi scrunched look, and an incredibly high heel. What is very surprising and will make many happy , is that these boots are mod, so that you can size them to your needs.

I had a wonderful time revisiting an old store, and came out with lots of newness, I hope you like.

Better than a Caddy

adorkable

I wanted to combine two extremely chirpy stores in one post. Also a little more nostalgia, this time one of my pining for something as a kid I never got. Two things I always wanted as a kid and never got, where the Simon game , and crayola caddy. Seriously do you remember that thing, it was huge, there was probably a bazillion colours in it, and it had so many other amazing things.

When it came out though, I was possibly too old for crayons, but I was such a stationary nut. So when I logged in tonight/day/afternoon I grinned with glee, and thought “I HAZ CRAYONSSSSSS ” mwahahahaha. Colour me Dorky is by aDORKable poses and has 8 poses in one nifty crayon display. I am only showing four – obviously – but it is loads of fun, especially for just hanging out with friends and wanting to all sit around eachother. The standing poses are also from their store, as they recently started doing poses packs as well, male and female ones.

aDORKable poses has lots of nifty items like that, and it is not surprising as the whole store is a team effort, and truly they are as aDORKable as the name suggests. The whole group love having fun together, and it really makes me smile seeing any or all of them at The Deck.

Now the other Dork I know, and one of the biggest is Kit Maitland, she is an utter nutter. She makes me crazy though, that girl can sit on a demo for months before going out to get the hair, I so obviously cannot do that, it’s in, try , buy for me. But it does make for interesting style notes, you see Kit Maitland of CKS Designs, was one of the first stores I have ever seen that includes a styling card in her clothing items, to let you know what skin, hair and shoes she is wearing in her ads.

She has been doing it for years, and it shows how organised that woman is for sure. Besides fashion, her other big obsession is football, but I am rambling. Recently she did something so sweet, she created a new swimsuit line and has it available only at The Deck. I am so honoured that she did this for us here, and wanted to share them with you today.

Four different styles, in beautiful colours and prints, first mate having less colours but a definite nautical theme with such a cute flouncy skirt. Going Commando is a fib :P and Dotty is as adorable as Dot the person, also a great friend of Kits, and who I have decided whether true or not that swimsuit is named after. My favourite is the SparkleBum, very sexy and a killer sunbathing kini , they are all just YUM.

The beautiful and definitely dried from the sun look hairstyles are all from TRUTH , ok maybe the Farrah isn’t dried from the sun exactly, but the rest definitely have that sun, salt and sea air look about them.

The skins are all Cleo by Dutch Touch , and yes using my VR Professional HUD I was able to do this combined me pic in minutes, it took longer to rez the change of swimsuits than to take the pics :). I lock camera with the VR Hud, then take pic, next , next , then shift drag them over eachother in PS and erase the parts i dont way, by changing the opacity to see through to each other layer.

Chasing Rainbows and lost bottoms

Em5

There is a true nostalgia for many when it comes to knits and bikini’s, I am no exception as for me it is definitely my childhood, all wrapped up in the exact same colours I am showing.

Every kid has those embarassing moments that their parents cause, well mine comes in the form of being forced to wear mismatched bikini pieces when I was about 7 – mind you it was my fault for losing the other halves of two sets . The top was pink the bottom lime green, now that would actually be hot, but when you are 7 it’s the worst day of your life. Even though I was highly embarrassed , I loved and still love my mum the bestest in the whole entire world – she especially thought it was hilarious when she picked me up from school prior to that day and I was crying out that I had lost my bottom -  I got over it and actually find the story funny, even if you don’t :P.

Rainbow Chaser is a Japanese store owned by the delightfully charming Rubylips. She creates such pretty and vibrant pieces and they all intermingle into an explosion of colour for your wardrobe. The bikini set is actually a set, as it comes with not just the bikini bottoms, but adorable boyshorts in the same knit, as well as a tiny flexy skirt option, fantastic for days at the beach and beyond.

The hairstyles I am wearing are both from Diversity Hair, the second being a male style, that I think looks fab on girls. Diversity hair does such heavy and luxurious locks of hair, which in the mens section is really a bonus, and in the womens definitely ads to the charm of the styles.

Because I wanted to delight in the colours of this post, I had to add more, with the recentish release of the Indra painted stacked bangles from Zaara, they are just beautiful and fun, whether with  bright colours as shown or more subdued colours it all works.
