Yesterday was like a relay race, but we were all running together. From one location to another, on the backs of each spot, it was really remarkable how much ground we covered from logging in, to passing out. Along the way I picked up Whimsy and Gary, and then Justice and  Fiachra even joined us for a sizzling hour or so.

I am honestly exhausted again just thinking about it. But it was awesome fun, and we do most things in conference IM calls, so it’s constant nattering and oooing and ahhing, and some yelling on occasion, that part is usually me getting all bent out of shape about something stupid.

Fiachra got to use the old expression “can’t see the forest for the trees” which had us all groaning, even Gary did some damage shopping up a storm, it was a great day, and totally seasonal mania. We definitely found new to us stores though, and even though it is sweltering down here, I came out all snuggly.

The dresses I am wearing all come from M*Motion, a little Japanese store. They have some lovely items, and the prices are really budget friendly. The first dress actually had more pieces, but even if not it was the belt that grabbed my attention anyway.

Extras can be so much fun, and in this case it was the belt. With the boots I am wearing, it is all the extra leggings that just fill you with delight. Machang of Aoharu/Anexx has included not just the normal aran style knit in her knit legwarmers/boots set, but also a nordic version to match the recent nordic knit sweater jackets she released, and not only do you get those two options, but also knitted leggings in a whole range of winter delight colours.

I am actually wearing some of the leggings in the first and second picture. You can of course also see that the boots come in two varieties, heels or flats, seperate but totally perfect for those that don’t do heels or ever wear flats. The second outfit, was kind of a grab it anyway purchase, it does have text sort of transparent stamped into the cleavage area, it is subtle but if not your thing, then not for you…I just liked the fun steampunky look of it.

Both looks also allowed me some hat/hair loving. I adore hat/hair, have always done, and I have said so more than ten times in the past…well today the release of the New Fri.day styles didn’t let me down in that department. A whole lot of hair to love, and many of them with hats, or scarfs etc. But for those that aren’t about the hat/hair love, the styles have been repeated without.

Fri.day has such beautiful textures also, so mixing it up a bit was definitely putting me in a lighter and brighter mood, mind you the names of  their colours could have you seeking therapy lol.The hats/scarves are all texture change on click, so you can co-ordinate with your favourite knits. The beany style also even has some striped combos that are a lot more urban in my opinion, and great for mixing with mens sweaters and argyle styles.

The last dress is my favourite, I grabbed that in all colours, and it is not only warm, but hell sexy. Scooped neck, but not too low, just low enough, to not only show off Jewelry , but also killer cleavage in the form o f the Bella skin by Tuli. A nice split up the thigh, and a gorgeous knit weave that has it definitely a more luxurious look overall. The dress also comes with its own open toed stirrup style socks, that do have a smidge of residue at the tops, but overall YUM.

I couldn’t help wanting to add to the glam with the stunning Fur Coat from Aoharu, shown in the past in white, the black is just sleek and all about the glamour. Worn long or short, with this sweater dress the combo is divine.

Tuli has recently released new make ups in the Bella range, with a different twist, either being all about the lips, or all about the eyes. Today I am showing ones that are all about the lips, giving rich deep shades, with a perfect overall effect. Bella has been a huge hit with many, so adding to the make ups is a wonderful idea, allowing for a long love for those that have bought it to be their full time skin.

blog – Justice for all

Nothing is more enjoyable than being able to really prepare yourself for your day or night. The great thing that comes from the wonderful abundance of skins we have now, is that the choices on make ups is plentiful.

Now one of the sometimes complicated things is choosing what make ups best suit your Second Life, and the way you live it. So when a skin creator takes into account, your world, your imagination, it is perfect.

Day, Night and the early hours of the morning. Those are the themes of the new skin line by Idiosyncrasy. 8am, 6pm and 2am. Each timeframe has 8 make ups, and the difference though subtle really works well.

I am actually wearing them middle to back, starting with the 6pm skins. Different looks for each one, slight variations, with some pieces crossing over, just like in RL. These days dressing for work can be as stylish and important, as dressing for early evening, nights out. Adding a deeper shade of lippy and tousling out your hair lol.

In Second Life though it can be even trickier, as often who you are talking to, dealing with business  wise, or socially, can be looking at you through different eyes entirely based on their own timezone. When you first come to Second Life it can get really tricky seeing people in full formal gowns and suits at 9am lol.

It seems to always be someones morning, evening or late night. But as confusing as that all is, now with the help of these skins, you are covered. Ashia has in my opinion definitely leveled up with the Justice skins, named after the incredibly talented herself Justice Infinity.

All the skins come with dark and lighter brows, as well as cleavage enhancement, so thats four skins per make up. These are just beautiful, you really need to try them asap.

The other featured item today for the most part, is the Beebee boots by SLink, these ankle boots are just adorable and incredibly crafted, in perfect leather, and divine shape…the attention to detail in these boots is amazing, even the zippers on the side have chomp worthy teeth.

Also featuring a lot of Cynful in this post, her latest releases just had me all excited. The idea of denim corsets with the snap buttons, are just gorgeous, they really do have you tightly encased and perfectly moulded. Denim is a perfect texture for this style, as when made in such a way the strength of the weave is totally suitable.

You get three looks in each colour, so they are a steal as well value wise. and whether adding your own cute and sexy, or tailored and professional for the workplace, they all work. Anyway I am rambling and you need to go shopping :P.

blog- a little bit country

Australians just love their sheepskin, probably not as much as the Kiwi’s do though *snickers* and then promises I am just teasing. We have always used sheepskin for clothing, it is the perfect warm in winter, cool in summer natural product. Sheepskin carseat covers are very common, and the infamous Ugg boots of course.

It is humorous that until Pamela Anderson was parading around between takes in them, they were actually a fashion DON”T for most of us down here. But most of us have them, and generally they were used as slippers in winter, I even accidently left the house in a pair once, and when I got out of the car and realised, I freaked out so badly that I flicked my foot so hard that my boot went careening across the car park.

Had that still been my reaction to sheepskin fashion, it would have definitely turned the moment I saw the Shearling Coats, these jackets are just fantastic, the style, fit and texture work is amazing… and so spot on to how this kind of coat would sit on the body.

The other really versatile item in this post are the Western boots, what is there not to love. It is not easy, well hasn’t been in the past to find really well created cowboy boots, especially girly ones that don’t lean to the too girly. Beautifully crafted with all the extras as usual, the ability to wear with or without the belt strap is just one of the features I love, because it is those little things that can really change your overall appeal to something.

A man that loves make up, is a wonderful thing. Kavar Cleanslate definitely has to be that guy, or he has a good ear for suggestions. Either way there is mucho love for the latest release by him of the Heart Shaped Box skins. Bow shaped lips, with a pouty look that usually lends itself to the most spoiled of petulant women, but with a can’t deny sultry look that could go back and forth through eras. Some of the make ups have a very vintage quality to them, and then there are some that are definitely our era so to speak. All of the names suggest a musical presence, and nothing can be more endearing than a song.

His first foray, I do hope wont be his last. I expect to see a great range of faces come forth from Kavar, as he has always struck me as very aware of his surroundings, and the needs of the women that make up parts of those surroundings.

Getting your western groove on is simple, and if you are feeling ” a little bit country ” like Newdoll this past week, then these looks can carry you there, without being too cheesey…not that there is anything wrong with cheese, I LOVE IT.

Jesse

I have been saving this hair for the right time, it had to be something stunning, and sleek..with that air of sophistication, I knew I wanted something Audrey-esque – yes it’s an official type, because I just said so.

The Harlow Gown & Cocktail dress is by Ingenue, and I am glad that as lazy at blogging that Betty herself says she is, that today she actually did it. As soon as I had it in my hands I was changed into the top portion, I was so in love with the shape and overall look, that I just had to hope that it was wearable with dress pants in a less dramatic way as well.

The Lampshade hairstyle is just amazing, and the colourchange options made it an absolute joy to play with. I am wearing Jesse one of the Skin/Shape Expo skins , that also has a breast enhancement option, which seems to definitely be the new black lately. Beautiful mouth, and incredibly captivating eyes. No need for prim lashes with this beauty, the lashes on the skin itself are divine. There is also a hairbase option which looks fantastic with pulled back and headbanded styles like Ryan from HCT, recently HCT has redone their textures, definitely worth taking a squiz.

Fake and then some

Another big thanks to Willow.Z for blogging some items from a new to me store. I caught a pic on her flickr, and just had to go and investigate, not only did I buy everything from the one store, but also the two others in the same sim, by the same talented creators.
Again I wanted to show the versatility of items that aren’t created for everyday wear as such, but more for the lifestyle or RP side of things.
Fan5
This top is a Camisk style, in a beautiful semi sheer fabric, semi sheer is why you don’t get a full frontal :P. Wearing it with some lovely forest green shorts , and the recent release of the J’s Ankle boots SQUARE TOE , wooohooo, they were so hot in rounded, but the square are just divine, and the buckle on the sides just enhances the love. They have the same beautiful colours as the previous boots, and with the two heels options as well in the menu driven script. I love the stiletto heels with these boots, but depending on terrain the thicker heel is a blessing to have as an option, and genius to have it built in.
Fan4
The Taffy is a sexy mini Camisk style dress, but it is so playfully cute, that it can be worn on it’s own for the risque, or over trousers such as the fab ones from Fri.day I couldn’t resist. I really love the style of this dress/camisk, as it gives off the illusion of being bound in by an extra layer , it is all one piece, but I would love it if the yellow portion was a seperate layer, imagine that option in a bazillion prints and solids, oh the looks YUM.
Fan3
This dress is of course full Gorean garb and so incredibly beautiful, I couldn’t resist. I really like the shape of the cloak and veil, they fit perfectly and the lines and shape of the dress is wonderful. I was really impressed also that because the empire portion is attached to the long skirt, it has an inbuilt animation so that you do not end up looking peculiar with your own AO , as well as instructions on how to alter that if needed. Then once done with the gown, I took off the extra’s and added the same pants in another colour and voila, a really fun daytime look. The colour is gorgeous and I really love the billowy look sleeves and witch like collar, ok I have no idea what it’s real name is, but it so reminds me of Samantha’s cousin in Bewitched.
Fan2
The Comfy set is just that, so many different RP options for this full dress, I was watching anne of green gables tonight, and it would even fit into that style too. But it was of course that incredibly scrumptious looking cardigan over the top that won me. Not only does it come in this lovely soft tan, but I got four different colours in one, seriously for the price it is a steal. Wearing the cardigan with the pants that actually grabbed my attention in the first place, these are the Meow pants from FAKE, a new to me store that is I believe a new collaberation of the creators behind Fantasia and Elements, the two stores who’s items I am also featuring today.

Elements and Fantasia are of course the more lifestyle and RP side of things, and FAKE is the more modern look….all three incredible stores are on the same sim, and it is just pure luck that traveling up a beautiful path I found the other two. I should thank Whimsy for her crashing and me just wandering around waiting for her return.
Fan9
WOWZA , It was instant love for the Salute Jumper also from FAKE, as soon as I had it in my mitts I was wearing it. This whole rockabilly style that is usually definitely male orientated has come out as a fantastic look for women. I think I forced Whimsy to get one too, she got a different colour, I can so imagine us strutting down a road doing a Reservoir Dogs kind of thing. I added the circle cut out socks by Kookie that I totally forgot I bought ages ago, so was super excited to find them, and that there was a great red pair in the pack. I don’t know if you can see it clearly, but I have on a cherry flavoured bling pop ring, this is from FAKE too, and comes with lots of flavours, I kind of couldn’t resist.
Fan1
This next combo is the one that grabbed my attention first at Fantasia, I actually spent the whole day in this yesterday in different combination’s. First off the full set, then changed the pants to the BF jeans from Maitreya , then settled into this other mix with the red Fakies from Fake, and the addition of the strapless bra from Popfuzz. I do wish that the corset top was a tad higher, so that I didn’t have to add a seperate layer, but the red of the bra worked well, so I’m not too unhappy about it, and I love love love it as a top.

Also I am wearing the fabulous Carina skins from LAQ, to me Carina is a natural progression from the Tasha skins, similar features, and beautiful detailing, I really love the soft lift to the mouth, and the full of expression eyes.  This skin also comes with the hair base option, so for those like me that bought the hair base hairstyles a few months ago, you now have another beautiful GLOW skin to wear with them. Today the release of also Cleavage Enhancers for the GLOW range, it comes on three layers, and is just WOWZA. As you will see in these next few pics, it is definitely an enhancement, it will only work with the LAQ Glow skins, but if you check the fat pack prices of those you will find them an incredible bargain.
Fan8
Speaking of hair, I am actually wearing Zero Style hair today. I went and grabbed both the long and the shorter style yesterday and have been back and forth’ing on all three all day and night, I love the longer styles of Camille and Shirley, with the shorter Enrica being so sleek and elegant. The braids style is Dorotea, which is just an adorable style as well.

These two tops/camisks are from Elements, and the first two I saw and had to have. For some reason they remind me of vintage star trek, I am not a Treky, but that was my era, so I did actually watch every week, and the women of the different planets always had such beautiful clothes like these. The top of the left as you can see sort of on the far right, is as plunging at the front as the back , but it also has those nipple highlights I’m not a huge fan of in public, mind you I think if I am going to wear such plungey clothing I can get over it :P.

The skirt I am wearing is from Popfuzz, it’s the belted mini and these come in so handy for finishing off a look.
Fan7
Holy smokes, this is again a Gorean style thingymajig, ok I am not sure if it’s a camisk as it has the prim part, but whichever it is, I had to have it because of the top :P. The choices of fabrics on all the clothing, from both the Fantasia and Elements stores are just beautiful and rich, the gold on red in this combo is beautiful and teamed up with some charcoal, it is divine. Mind you I don’t know how anyone will be able to tell what colour you have on with the top, if you wear the same skin and enhancements.
Fan6
Lastly in another beautiful rich red, the Turian tied camisk is a perfectly gorgeous option for swimwear. Or at the very least, laying by the pool wear. As you can see the rest of the Carina body is really well detailed, and the skin tones are lovely, this being the nougat.

I could have spent a lot more at all three stores, and I do hope that both creators get to making me more temptations. Such a fantastic load of talent on one beautiful sim.
