Shine a Light on Me

Wearing Sunday hair on a Sunday for me, means that you get to shop today and wear tomorrow and still be on theme. Of course why would you want to limit yourself this hair is wonderful. Not only is the style great, but the scarf option and its texture change colours and prints just makes it so many options of wear. There is also an unrigged without scarf option, so just from the start it is two styles in one.

It is the last 10+ hours of My Attic for this round, and I will be sorry to see it end…I have met some lovely people at the event, as well as had some comical occurances. I of course have my own Flair items up, some being the Flair nails, and others being the combined efforts of W.Winx and Flair. We did a fun pose prop set, three of them actually with playing cards and pin up style poses, you can see ours, as well as everything HERE.

Collabor88 is also in it’s last week, with the items being shown today being just perfect for the theme. The Betty swing dress is from The Secret Store, and it is a great swishy dress, for swishing and swaying all over the place. There are other colours and prints, but this black was amazing, it is not easy to get black to look perfectly black and still have some shine to it, but this dress has that in spades. It also has a texture change belt option, so I added some contrast with the red, seeing as red, white and black look so striking together.

It also gave me the chance to take my new pet poodle by MishMish for a stroll around my studio. Not only is it so sweet looking, but if you click on it, you get really nice messages of love and fun, then also when you walk it walks and when you sit it sits.

If its only 10+ hours left of My Attic, then that means it is only 10+ hours left until the opening of The Arcade. Two of the items in this post are must haves from the event. The first is the light I am leaning against. It is by 8f8 and not only is it perfectly pretty and I really wish it was possible to get copy versions of them for decorating a sim…but it also has a resize script in it, which worked out great, otherwise it would not have been visible in my picture. It is actually part of an incredible Ice Dreams set you can see more of on the shopping guide linked below.

The other items are these Jolie shoes by Ingenue, they are made for the Slink High feet, and are a lovely extremely high vintage style shoe. Honestly with that high a heel it is no wonder I need to lean against a light and rest my gams. I don’t usually wear stockings, but as soon as I put this look together I knew it needed them…off I went down to Lacuna Inc and there were the Semi Opaque hipster tights. They come in packs of four colours and work with appliers for Slink feet as well.

Mourning Call

The fair is still on, and while on a jaunt around town with Aisling, I was able to with her help revisit some items I had thought were gone for good…

The Mourning Dress from Sur+ (previously lark) was for an event, and I didn’t get it at the time, because we only found out about it close to the end. Luckily for me I was able to get another go at it, and it was the perfect compliment to the Rosalie Skin by Adam n Eve that is available in a special release at Skin Fair.

The mourning dress does actually come with a frill collar, but it was making me nuts for no reason, so I took it off. I am all about the love for all the pieces in the set, I do wish though that the corset and timepiece were seperate items, though you do get the option of so many attachment points already chosen for you. I might have to attack it and take off the watch to wear the corset solo one day. The watches are actually buyable on their own, one even comes as a mouth wearable – smaller of course , I had that thing in for a few days last week.

Another great timing release was the new hairbase and hairbun release from Nylon Outfitters, the base is gorgeous, you get five bun attachments with each one, and there are two options to choose from, this is the swept to the side bangs one, and I love it.

The Rosalie skin from Adam n Eve comes with all the usual goodies, and as I mentioned is a special pack at the fair, you can also pick up the apple on the table for some great gifts from Sachi, as well as look at all the new Make Up layers now available, she has some really cool themes going on.

The background I am using is from Second Life Stock Images Group, and is actually by Kala Bijoux, I so should have worn her wings from Material Squirrel in the post, bad Sasy.

Rock Star

may

YS

Sometimes you just have to bring out your inner RockStar. These outfits are way fun in that regard, especially the one on the far right, the Jade set allows for mixing and matching with other items, and what is not to love with the individual pieces of it. I love the jacket and pants, and can totally see using the belt for other looks.

A great pair of heels for this look are the open toed backless ankle boots from Adam n eve, they are called New Yorkers, and I can totally see these babies strutting up 5th. They come with a hud that allows for change of skin tone, also allows for change of nails and the fun beads laced up the back.

With all these looks I couldn’t resist wearing Tokyo, the latest hair release from LeLutka, inspired by it’s namesake and probably way too many hours kicking peoples bums at Tekken , this style is a frenzy of kick bummedness – yes that is a word, coz I say so. IN the 80’s high ponies were the craze, higher the better, it was almost like a free facelift for older women lol. This style is so excellent, very anime runway inspiring, and seeing as I have been watching hundreds of hours of anime lately, I am deeming myself a professional on the matter lol.

The skin I am wearing is Julia, from YS & YS what I really like about the make ups on this skin is that you get matte lips as well as the glossy in most of the make ups, and they are excellent as soptions, you can also actually purchase the lipsticks on their own in matte, as they go with a range of the newer skins. All of the excellent add ons that are so usual with YS & YS freckles layers, cleavage options and hair bases.

Risky Business

Socks

Those that want to keep up to date with what desginers are up to, can generally get sneak peaks in their flickr accounts. Making a designer a contact means that if lucky enough to spot it, you can see items about to be released before they hit the blogs, and sometimes, if really lucky, days before they are even released.
Such was the case this past few days with Onyx LeShelles flickr, one of the designer duo behind Maitreya, has been sneaking some teaser pics in the last few releases, just to whet the appetites of loyal customers. So the past few days, many of us have been all a dither about the upcoming release of the Shearling Boots – more of those to come soon – and the prim feet socks.

As soon as I saw these I knew how much fun I would have with them, I wont crack a crystal egg, but if I could find the right slide animation for my run or something I’d be set. Thankfully aDORKable poses had a perfect static pose for my recreation of this famous Tom Cruise socks move. I should be facing the other way, but I wanted to show off the new dress by Adam n Eve at the same time, perfectly created to be the ultimate shirt dress.

The socks are of course the new Maitreya ones, they come in packs of ten with not only flat feet, or pointed toes, but also the ability to make the feet vanish leaving the socks upper and can be worn with other shoes, for a most realistic look, because when the shoes come off,  one click and your feet will reappear, how cool is that. I see these being an awesome gift for men this year too.

Bring on the Mod Squad, seriously that is how I felt as soon as I layed eyes on this beauty.

The latest Belle dress from Elate is just marvelous darlings, and what better way to show off your sexy legs, than with knee high boots, an expanse of skin and this beautiful retro fashion. The fun thing about the dress is it’s ability to look both casual and fun, or sleek and dressy, it will all depend on the accessories, boots/shoes and how you flick your hair.

Speaking of flicks – see how I lead you right there – the new styles from Exile are scrumptious. The Nyx hair is amazing and Lake I really would love to have in a hat hair combo. Kavar as I have said before, really levels up each and every time he releases.

I could see wearing any of the colours of this dress, to christmas parties and the festive activites bound to occur over the coming weeks, the colours and style are perfect for it.

I made another backdrop background in PS for this post, and am adding it to the Flickr Group Second Life Stock Images, so I hope someone finds good use for it :).

A little something something, with the With Love Hunt still going on full tilt. The starting point is at Le Circue, and it is well worth the time, as the items are just wonderful, and of a really good quality.

Just one of the outfits today, but with hair and accessories also hunt items. The Bliss Couture hair is not your every day do, by no means, but I do love these styles for evening wear, and also they shoot so well, as they usually contain minimal if no alpha, so very little work has to be done on the pics. The accessories are very cool bangle stacks, but with the added rings and lace gloves, that is an awesome addition to this look, as it’s an option not a must, so you can play around with the look… very Madonna 1984.

The Nemesis outfit is all win also, what with the bustier being so nice on its own, and the skirt having two options, with or without chain, there is also an oversized chain collar, that is all win, but I decided that the Bow from Royal Blue was a must as I have been playing around with it on and off for a few weeks now – mind you I did lose them for a few weeks in between lol.

The skin I am wearing is another newish from YS & YS , I told you they came back with a bang, only showing off some of the make ups in this set, as usual though they are wonderful. Also some new eyes from Adam n Eve that just got released today. Such nice speckled colours and funnily enough they seemed to match the make ups in order lol.

Have an awesome time hunting for the other goodies, and get ready for the next instalment of the hunt that starts on the 10th.

Some incredibly talented Actors passed away this week, Mrs Cleaver and Mr Cunningham, that would probably be their better known roles. Leave it to Beaver wasn’t as big a show down here, but Happy Days growing up was everything, the shows younger characters were awesome, but my fondest moments are the parenting ones, Mr Cunningham and Richie after hours at the Hardware store, how Fonzie looked up to him even though he would play it so cool…and the famous to me Joanie and the peanut butter jar scene with her mum talking over boys.

I know they were just acting the written word, but you have to wonder if they knew how much they moved people. Anyways, they are admired from all over, and it makes me teary to think of them as passing. Onto other things, Whimsy Winx also won a speed building award this week, woot.

Anyway onto other things, these items are newness. The first being the Flight Jacket from DeLa. DeLa puts out the most gorgeous of coats, and this one is no different. A great length, stunning textures and gorgeous colours, it all works, and again for us down here in the in between weather, this could totally work.

The jeans and sweaters are from Fishy Strawberry, I love these sweaters, they come with long or shorter sleevelength, as well as longer sculpted length to the body of the sweater, and lastly the fab tank undershirt option. So many layers, and versions to choose from. The Jeans are unisexy, so your guy friends can shop too.

The skin I am wearing is Marina from Adam n Eve, and she is Fit. Beautiful make ups, and a great range of tones and extras, with hair bases, freckles and other things, DEMO DEMO DEMO. I am wearing the fabulous Typhoon boots from Paper Couture, if you do not have these yet, what are you waiting for, they are wicked, and I cannot wait to wear them again with skirts and dresses as well.

Have a wicked day.
