I love What’s New SL Group, biased maybe, but today I got to feature some people that I have explored as stores due to the group. What I love more though, is when people provide all info in notices…that’s what What’s New SL was mainly set up for…but when it actually happens, it is very cool. Such as sending all landmarks to different locations so that if I happen to be intending to go to one location and get a notice for a store there, I can pop into it while already there, yes that means updating satelites locations, but it is due to those that many of us find your mains anyway.

Rant, Rant, Rant…

It isn’t a race, I cannot be the only one that is out shopping ; hears that there is a new release by a certain store, and knows they have a smaller store where I am, run or cam over to see items that are six months old if not older, then just gets sadface. Yeah getting ranty, but seriously you people pay to have these locations represent your product, so why not set up newness at all your spots THEN send the notice ? in RL it is a lot harder to do that but they do, so why in SL where it takes ten seconds to tp to the other side of the grid would you not ?

Rant, Rant, Rant…

In this case it was actually not just LM’s but Xstreet links, meaning I could buy right from my VR Studio, just opened browser and I had a new outfit…easy.Again the store owner is thinking of making the most of their announcement options, in not just What’s New SL but ALL marketing options they may have, in most cases you get one option to captivate a customer with your release, as they are usually getting dozens of shopping options per hour in SL…so giving them EVERY available way to spend their lindens with you is just common sense.

Rant, Rant, Rant…

Again it is not a race, unless you have a fair deadline, or a collab project that HAS to go out at that exact moment, you should take your time, dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s , there are enough ways to promote your stores these days, that you could have info going out every day for a week to different customers. Next release I dare you to try it :P.

The first look is actually a new to me store, but yay for them joining What’s New SL . Not only do I really like the items she has for sale, but I love the Muhi store set up, and on inspection it is her that actually built it as well. This Asymetrical bodysuit is wonderful and actually has the option to wear as more of a jacket if you aren’t into the whole bodysuit look. Which with dress pants would look very dressy under the right circumstances.

The Sam dress by Elate I have had too long not blogged, shame. The Fleur de lis give this tshirt style dress a regal appearance. I do like that Kellie also took the option of plain back, as the all print look can sometimes be a bit too much. I am wearing some newly release jewelry from Ganked with it, in various forms, but I love the necklace the way it sits on the actual collar, because the way it is designed it has that shawl clip look as though more than a necklace but also an item that is holding the dress on the shoulders.

Loving the New Prestige Boots by Bax Coen in silver as much as I am ? Bax has also moved to her own sim this past week, so no more mainland lag for her. The colours that come with the silver and also gold are just lovely, one of the four not shown is actually stunning, but I am saving it – or savoring it . These will be released very soon, so just hold on tight until then, or just go explore the new sim :).

The skirt, or lack there of;  is the item that I bought while taking pics. It is actually part of a set, and I am honest, I couldn’t tell you what came with the skirt because once I laid eyes on it, that was it *grabby hands. One of the older gartery tops from Cynful is Vogue, so many different options and layers in these tops, with and without lace, and in different coloured lace too. Talk about going all out to satisfy your customers, the most layers you do on everything, the more likely they are to be go to items for people that love layering and mixing and matching.

The scarf is so cute, it was actually at the accessory fair as a dollarbie, in white and black. Haunted Zuzu is an offshoot of Material Squirrel and I really admire Kala’s skills and exploration of new and innovative accessories, something as simple as a lace scarf can add so much to an outfit, this would be really nice too in place of a blouse collar, to give something older a fresh look.

Kissed by Lithium notices make me laugh, sorry but they do. It is not the products, but the way they go about making a new release sound like a must have prescription is too funna. I am a remiss in not blogging this set earlier, the Imovane set has the cutest baggy boardies with a lovely bikini in many colour options. Doing baggy is hard in SL because of how the mesh works, and I would like to see these worked on a little more to maybe incorporate a cuff, but for fun and frolicking in the surf they totally work.

Totally gave me a chance to wear my Gyala clog sandals by Enkythings. I love how Enktan managed to modernise the clog in this way, and the colours and base choices really work. The studs along the sides that show that these are true blog workmanship is just genius.

Spinning through this post with more Eva skins by Tuli, the make ups, skin tone and body all worked for this post so well. I was privileged to see a sneak peak at a new skin already in the works by Tuli the other night with Whimsy. It is like nothing Tuli has done before and it is amazing. Those looking for more from the brand will just be in awe of what is to come.

Magika hair love all over the place, they are having an insane SALE at the moment, so be sure you don’t miss out on that, the hair packs are slashed to clear lol J/K …argh imagine if we only got the chance to create so many of something, wow would SL be fight to the death.

Not all purple but enough to make Ashia not donk me on the head.

If you are a guy looking for poses, or a girl like me who loves using guy poses, then you need to check out the new Homme collection at No Strings Attached, Milli just put some out and they are the ones I am using in the last pic. The first two pics are more sneak peaks from aDORKable, cannot wait for pose fair, and the third are all by Body Language …all such talented posemakers.

Ok so the asset servers are playing silly buggers. I have taken back to inventory the same boxes about 12 times now, I gave up as they weren’t going there anyway, just vanishing, so now I am just dragging them out of the way, it looks like a delivery truck overturned outside my door. Actually I could totally do that, because I am so in love with the NotsoBad rezzer that I keep it out full time at the moment.

As fun as SL can be during times of nothing working, it is unfortunate for those that have had plans made, a date set etc. Tuli announced last week that today would be the much anticipated release of her Eva skins. So far, not a peep out of Tuli as she is probably trying to tackle opening her new build and releasing of her new products, not just the skins.

The skins come in seven beautiful tones, from very pale to dark dark tan, and with a blend of make ups that compliment all. The brow options vary from tone to tone, as some wont work on all…but all that info is very clear when purchasing, and you can always check edit, or demos to find out if the brows you are after are part of that tone package. Eva also has a lovely full cleavage option, that just cries out for attention, so don’t be wearing the b version and covering them up, that just wouldn’t be fair.

Preparing this post I got to fall in love with all sorts of items, I mentioned the other day that Sabina Gully of Magika had been training up her sculptie techniques, and one of the outcomes of that is the hat hair on the right of the first pic. A beautiful loose beanie style but with a lovely rich texture that doesn’t make it too wintery, and is colour/texture change on click.

Most of the clothing today is also featured at Clothing Fair, either RFL items or just regular, and the fair is still going strong, I popped over earlier today, and the crowds are having a great time. I love the semi casual to dressy pieces being released at the moment, depending on how you add to them, they can be fun for running around in, or going out in.

That is definitely the case for the clothing released by Elate recently. The Kaia dress is perfect for slipping on and taking off – by taking off I mean going about your day :P. The two tone stripes give you ample opportunity with accessorising them, and using one of both colours as compliments to the look. I could totally wear these over a fav pair of  jeans too.

Another LOVE LOVE LOVE is the gorgeous Mermaid set jewelry from Biensen & Maitai , this is a set to be had by all fishy lovers, pisceans which is now by the way, and just fans of all things water related. I love this necklace and earrings combo, and the image on both is just beautiful.

Next up another big love – don’t you just love that show, it spins me out, but it is fab – are the Alex skirts , again by Elate. This is a MUST HAVE staple for the remainder of the year, the kind of item you have on hand in your go to folder, as the style and the fit is perfect. Not only is it high waisted, but the belt is superb, and even with a long top over it, covering the high part, the belt can be worn as a cinch and just enhance the whole look… bravo Kellie on this one.

Changing into some beautiful hairstyles from Tiny Bird. Autumn has really been producing some really feminine styles lately – not that she doesn’t usually – but these have a little something extra in the girly girl department of twin sets and cameos for sure.

The rest of the Jewelry is by Addict, Kianna has updated all of her necklaces and made them colourchange, so if you were oooing and ahhing in the past, but didn’t follow through, now is the time. The doll necklace has always been a fav of mine, and now I can make it match a variety of looks when I want.

Boots Boots Boots, the Prestige ones have been featured here before, and the choice of either leather or suede is a hard one, but as you do get so much wear out of them, it is more to do with what colours will best enhance your wardrobe. The leather option is just perfect in the brown version, and I did make lots of squeely noises when I went from the skirts to the Trek outfit from Nyte n Day. How gorgeous is that safari look dress. Just going to show that thats two outfits in the same day that I get the use of the camel colour.

I adore the trek dress, it is just gorgeous, and I was able to cheat and use the lower portion of it as a skirt with the new Boyfriend Racerback Tanks by OhMai. Be careful of those, Miss Anya Piglet made them sheer so you will need to wear a bra or the other fab layers to cover up – or not – the split sides and back of these are just perfect, it is funny how when you see something done so well, like side splits on a top, that you realise you don’t see them that often.

Keep your eyes and ears peeled for the announcement that Eva is released, as the skin is just beautiful and I can see it fast becoming a default skin for many.

Blog – Big Sur

Furry
Furry2
Furry - Tones
wp-header-exposhoe fair

More beautiful items from the Footwear Expo, I am loving the diverse range of this years fair. So far there has been an equal kind of ratio on new items and already released. But as I always say ‘everything old is new to someone” so those creators that didn’t get a chance to release new items for the fair, still have an audience.

I got all excited a few weeks back, when I saw the city fur hat from LeLutka, I even mentioned to Minnu that she needed to make us muffs for the cold weather, as I have always wanted one in Second Life, and funnily enough had still yet to find one. Now LeLutka has released a fur hat and muff combo as their LeLook Exclusive for this month.

I went to Elate the other day as mentioned, and was really excited to see a dress called Tuli, which of course makes sense when you realise that the latest Bella skins have a make up called Kellie lol. I decided that I wanted to go all out with the sweater dress. I grabbed one of the latest releases from Nyte n Day, the Just Corset in Sand, and adding a tint got it the colour I wanted. The Just Corset and Just bands are great to completely change, or enhance a look, coming on all layers they rock.

Back to the Tuli dress though, this sweater dress is snuggly, with the large cowl neck and extended sleeves you will feel all huggable in it. The leggings I am wearing are the Zaara’s Nishar Leggings in Ivory – again tinted – to add the same tone to them as the dress…because if I am going to be this warmed up, I need to get into some serious layering. I also at one stage just wore the knee high and thigh high sock versions of the leggings, which also created a fun look.

The sensational Big Sur boots are from YS & YS , they are featured at the footwear expo and are just glorious leather in a great range of colours. They definitely have a lovely lived in look to them, and a definite trip to the cobblers to have them perfectly fitted feet.

Also from YS & YS in the footwear department, is the Illetes Sandals. A roman sandal look, with the added bonus of not just being able to change skin, nails and toe rings, but also the ability to change the metals featured…I went with the bronze as it is a lot softer with the brown shades in the picture.

Again from Elate is the Penelope dress set combo. You not only get the colour top that you buy the outfit in, but also the white. Giving you two looks, and more if you choose to wear the tops on their own with other skirts or pants, or the skirt with different tops, it is all finished well to achieve that. I love the scaled look of the skirts on these dresses, as being a pisces they rock my fishness.

More tones of the beautiful Bella Skin by Tuli than the ones I took the main pics in. I am also wearing a latest release lingerie set from Blowpop,  lowrise boyshorts and triangle bra’s called Cassie, which is funny because the triangle bra reminds me of training bras we used to start out with when younger. Most recently Bonds of Australia brought back this look big time here, and the colour coordinating or not contrast look has been featured big time in their ads… so I am chuffed to have that option for Second Life too.

Blog – I Wish

Exotic
eXO2
eXO1
eXO3 copy

I swear she tried to stick something up my bum yesterday, and she also tried to marry my male me, not my male, but me as a male. It sounds complicated but it really isn’t, just another day of ours flitting about SL being all up in each others stuff.

Actually that’s the best thing about us, we don’t have to worry about everything else going on, we more than make up for every moment with each other, just chilling, or squabbling over who didn’t tp who where, and why one of us has hair the other doesn’t yet… I love us.

But because of that, I ended up a little lax in the getting this release out of me, not because I wasn’t chomping at the bit to do so, but more of a case of so many other things to get done, I knew that Ashia would be all cool with me being a slacker, as she is in the same boat anyways.

Same with Whimsy and Arabella I am sure. Idiosyncrasy is owned by Ashia Tomsen, and she has been working her little bottom off lately to create some fantastic skin lines, and with back to back skin fairs she like many had to pull out all stops.

The Idiosyncrasy skin release for Vanity Skin Fair is the Mia Exotic, a darker tone skin that comes with a small smattering of freckles across the bridge of the nose. Beautiful tone for a darker skin fan, with a lovely assortment of make ups, that don’t get lost on this shade of skin.

A few weeks ago Cajsa came by to visit at The Deck , and while there she was wearing a great hairstyle by booN which I decided this week I had to have, it’s long straight style is just lovely, and the way it moves is so natural.

While running around SL on Thursday night, late enough that the 50L friday vendors had already put out their items, I ran into Kellie Iwish of Elate. I was talking to her in IM and actually headed over to her new store, not actually at the time aware she too was on the list for the day. Not only did I fall for that item, but many more, including this dress, WOW I made such big letter statements to her I am sure, it was love at first sight, there are two versions of Raeva, named after a friend of Kellies, but this one had me at YUM.

Even better that they go so well with the Kalnins Boudoir Shoes. As soon as I had these on my feet and played with the HUD, I was into the contrast looks big time, and red and black is always a firm favourite for me, especially a red heel.

Make sure if you do get these shoes you make them most of them, don’t just wear one full colour, utilise all their functions and mix it up, sometimes adding a splash of accent colour, even if just the heels or rim can pull a whole outfit together.
