I saw this coat earlier today on someone and squeeled, tp’d over to the store, and squeeled more to find out it was a gift item, I have a jacket like this in red and white in RL, but the navy is so classy. The fun thing is that even though it seems to have been created for more of a school look, with my more mature looking av it came off making me look like a cruise director, or one of those employees at a resort, like the place baby and her family went to in Dirty Dancing, because I have been humming that stupid Kellerman’s song for the past two days, and it is seriously sending us all mental.

Chuckles evily as I post the vid and lyrics HERE

The blazer is from SF Designs, and this colour is the gift one, but there are others available. The even more funny part was that all the hairstyles from Beetlebones are such preppie looks, that work both vintagey and the good side of sacharin sweet. Beetlebones textures are lovely and as far as I remember from chats before Hair Fair, they are redone from previous.

I am wearing a newish skin from Adam n Eve called Jasmine, it comes in four tones and all the usual add ons that Adam n Eve provide, lots of exciting new skins coming out of there lately. DEMO DEMO DEMO

Market Day

Aba

So I was all ready to do a mammoth post, you know those days when you want to crunch as much out as you can. But then I got an IM for a link to You-tube, and it was very interesting. I then got distracted by other clips by the same creator, one thing lead to a bucket of tears and that was me done.

I have only seen the trailer, but I did watch an interview with the producer of the documentary, and that had me so moved all on it’s own. It was actually an interview done by an SL Resident, and it was his IM that lead me to it in the first place. I would love to be able to see The way we get by. It looks to be such an emotional film, but I would have to see it at home because the blubbering would be too much for the public.

The vintage looking blazer was a find at beetlebones and is a freebie no less, it was the perfect choice to wear over the beautiful dress from SALT, as I knew as soon as I saw it how I wanted to wear it, other than out of the box which is just lovely as is. The bag is another freebie from Berries Inc, seems the b’s are coming up with all the goods this week. The bag comes with three different versions, and is the perfect strolling market day bag, or off to the beach/pool for a swim and sun-bake. It has all the necessities built in.

Hey Jean

Jean

Jean 3

Enough looks for a week. I have been doing some other things with Whimsy all week and it has been exciting. But really wanted to take the time to put together a whole lot of different looks featuring one or two items all the way through.

In the first pic I am featuring hair from Magika, her latest releases are just stunning, Sabina has totally nailed Sculpted hair and I am so looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us in the future. I also would love to see more of the wavey styles such as Kelly on the right, that style is super sexy, and those waves are perfect.

The latest shoes from Orange Creations are really pretty, with their strappyness and really nice colours. I especially like the option to change the straps to brown or black, and played on that throughout the post. The presets for skin are very helpful as well as nails and size options, the HUD works really well, I did have to move mine though as it took off my VR Studio HUD and that just won’t do.

When I last went to BP* I just about threw myself at the wall to get the adorable cropped denim jacket, it is so cute, makes you feel all little and stuff. Not only was it perfect to wear with the Jeans version of the Melanie shoes, but the Jules skirt by Maitreya matched in denim so well I was stoked.

I also wanted to wear the jeans texture with something a little dressier, so the vintage dress from Niavi was perfect, I hope Zoe is making lots more clothing, her style is fabulous, and her talent can only get better. This dress is simple and yet perfect for date night.

Whimsy and I went exploring the other day, and I came across Mikan. I haven’t to my knowledge been there before, and the hair is just gorgeous, especially the one in the middle which I couldn’t get enough of, the texture the curls, it has that straight from the surf dried by the sun look about it I love.

All three wonderful styles are from there, and the one on the left which is incredibly striking was only 1L and a gift hair on the floor near the lucky chairs. The latest releases from Fri.day remind me of Canimal and her trip to the UK, when she came back she did a huge punk themed release, and this one totally reminds me of the mod girls of the 80’s.

The pic in the middle should have a blouse but I couldn’t resist the without it look, but still keeping the collar and tie, and how awesome does the Byzantine Cross necklace look poking through the tie, I look like a Catholic Girls Gone wild promoter. The reverie dress has so many options, you get the shirts on their own to wear as shirts, you get the inbuilt shirt with top of dress look for that uniform look, and you get the dress on its own, and it is HOT HOT HOT. The simplicity of it is what makes it so sexy.

Now onto the white Melanies, this is where I ended up stopping only because once I got the middle look; I refused to change from it lol. On the left though we have the Tease dress by Luck Inc, and you only get a tease, because no way will you see the front. It is definitely an exposing dress, I can wish that CK had done a more modest version, but pfft not likely. But I do get to save it for private time :P.

The jumper on the right is a delightful casual look for those that love the Luck Inc style, It is modest enough, but the back cut out still keeps it all sexy, and it is something that can be worn at anytime. Even the sexier stores have to give their customers something to sit on a couch and cuddle in watching tv, cannot always be looking like you cannot wait to tp to the next party.

The middle look is what I will spend the rest of the day in, even though the jeans are cheek flashers, the tank dress totally covers that, and makes the whole look a touch more stylish especially with the new Lucid belt from Fri.day. I love mid torso belts, and this thin one is aces.

The skin I am wearing throughout the post is the latest Elle skin from Belleza. There are twenty make ups on this skin, with hair base and cleavage options. I think that Elle has a style to the face that means you can be playful and youthful, or classy and mature, which is exactly what one wants in a skin line, especially if you do like to play around with lots of looks, but prefer one skin.

Make sure you try all the demos, and if you haven’t done Belleza before try them all not just Elle, because you never know, an older skin may be more to your liking.

I am wearing the latest nails from Exodi, in the silver, which gives you options of embelishments such as glitter, you can buy them as singles ( I couldn’t find a pack ) for only 100L they have three sizes and are MOD MOD MOD so yay for real fitting capabilities.

Have a great weekend…

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Kissing Bandit

I was having an awesome day yesterday, then it turned to crapola…not to worry though I turned it around because the lindens immortalised me and some friends in the new viewer wooot! One of the highlights of course was BOOOOOOOOTS.

I love boots, I could wear them all year. These new Quinn boots by SLink are just divine, the texturing, the style and the options to be open toed or not. There was a pair set out for 50L friday and if you missed out then thank goodness you can buy the regular colours because they are all must haves. My favourite thing other than the colours, the heels, the open toedness etc, is the scrunched down leathery look of the ankles, I love that attention to detail that has them all authentic and stuffs.

Beetlebones just released some beautiful Slouchy tunic style dresses, in soft textures and colours. The pulled up and puffed out elasticated band look is tops, and I think the length is just girly perfect, especially for wearing BOOOOOOTS.

I wanted something to wear around the neck, but wasn’t really feeling accessories need but more of a snuggle fest need, so the voluminous scarf and hair 3 by Maitreya fit the bill perfectly. They are texture change and have a great colour range that worked in really well with the dresses.

What I did do accessories wise was the new bags by Fri.day, these dreamcatcher bags come totally set up to shoulder wear, hand wear or non scripted for anywhere wear lol. The colours of those are so many and so perfect to go with all your leathery goodness. I wonder if vegans and anti leather wearing peoples actually wear virtual leather ? or would that compromise some integrity or something? I guess if it is pretending to be, it is just as bad *shrugs* not sure, interested to know though.

I get another chance to wear Elena by LAQ the lips on this skin just make me wanna smoochy everybody, so watch out, if you wake up with keyboard face and lippy on your cheek, it is because I the kissing bandit came to Elena smooch you.

At a few minutes before the hour of midnight last night, Arabella, Ashia and I tpd around like crazy women, to try and get to all the 50L friday items. We managed I think to get most of them before Ashia had to leave…it is always so hard to spend the right hours together with everyone living all over the world.

The last few days I have been sleeping almost like an aussie, it’s been shocking to the system. Mel doesn’t sleep like an american, Whimsy doesn’t sleep much at all, Ashia is always up extra late for a pom, and Arabella burns the candle at both ends in NZ.

It is now 8am and I still haven’t slept, but I had a great time nattering with the masses in FE today, and having Whimsy be mean to me, yes yes she was a meany bum. Yesterday much earlier in the day I was sooooooooo cranky, that the girls had to deal with me grumbling as we shopped, and then I got to BP* and I was in a glorious mood, because I found the ultimate in vintage jeans love….actually it was a denimpaloooza, not only did I find the jeans of Yum, but also the Gaucho denim pants of Yummyness too.

The flared back of the jeans is just wonderful with inbuilt ruffles in gingham they made me squeel with delight. You get three options of colour in the pack, but really can you go past red for your gingham. I was also overjoyed that it went perfectly with the Summer Breeze dress top portion that I was wearing yesterday in yellow, in the red which I had also bought…I was a happy bumblebee, the fact that Anya has used the system skirt for the bottom of this is awesome.

The top half of me was taken care of in full by OhMai today, not just the top of the dress for with the jeans, but also the lovely cami and vest..the vest is the type of open look that goes with just about everything, dressier pants or a slimline skirt, it will all work really well.  Sometimes you just have to get your denim groove on, and today was my day to do so.

Ashia and I went on a shopping spree earlier this evening, and went to somewhere I had been telling her that we had to the last few days, when Ashia was tping to another location, I spotted a SALE sign.

Jumping over from one store to another, I found that Beetlebones was having a 50% off everything Sale until the 24th, which worked out perfectly because I was able to incorporate those buys, with the wondeful hair that is also on SALE at Tiny Bird, yes Tiny Bird and Long Awkward Poses are having a 50% off SALE to celebrate their One Year anniversary of Festivale, congrats to them both and everyone else that is on that sim :) it’s a lovely place to spend time.

Beetlebones collection varies from dressy to casual, and the prices at the moment are crazy, but even if you don’t make it to the SALE the full prices are really well priced anyway.

The other week I was hanging with Justice, and she was showing me her new ankle boots from G Field, as soon as I saw them I knew I must have… they are like Maryjanes that have extras, they have the straps of a shoe, with the added benefits of a boot, with texture changes on the buckles in various metals. There are small packs as well as a fat pack greatly priced, and at the moment there are two versions in pumpkin orange that have been reduced to only 30L so you should make sure and grab those too.

I felt like wearing an older skin today, and my go to was the beautiful Poppy skin from La Sylphide, just because when I think Tiny Bird and LAP it’s not a far leap to Stephanie Misfit, plus I really love how her skins look for any occasion.
