Up the Stalk – &Bean, La Sylphide, DeLa, Red Queen, Lamb, TRUTH,Tigerclaw, Kalnins, Dare

Shhhh they are sleeping, or at least turning in for the night.

Bean

So lets start with the checking out &Bean, I have probably redirected a billion people there this week all wanting to know where the skin was from in the latest Maitreya Hair ad.

So last night I decided to go and check it all out myself, under the beautiful rainfall that fills part of the Cupcake sim I found the store, more thanks to Ashia though, who after me getting lost found me a direct tp.

I was more intrigued with the clothing I have to say, the demos of the skins are all there and fab, but when I saw this skin it was a Must Have, it is called The Pale Anger – Sale at Armidi, which I think is a hoot of a name, if they did have one, it would be that rough and tumble lol. The bruises, scratches and black eye and fat lip are incredibly detailed.

The outfit is the I Kill Her set, also by &Bean, I love the caged undergarment style of this set, perfect for recreating some Scarlett styles. The Grey and Black lace teddy is well worth grabbing it for even if the cage isn’t your thing.

The hair I am wearing is called Carissa, it is by TRUTH, and is a lovely pigtails style with a loose look thats in that thrown back and together look we often have to adapt to.

I saw these boots from Tigerclaw and I fell in love, they are the Police SWAT boots, and they also have a blue light option you can buy, I felt that the red lights would be easier to co-ordinate with, they are so much fun to stomp around in, and really well made, the textures are beautiful.

The Maps Jacket and Slick and Shiny pants are both seperates from &Bean, the jacket has with or without prims options, and a preferable way to wear either, I went totally the opposite. Under the jacket prim cuffs is actually a pink texture variation, so you do in fact get two looks for your money. Silver and shiny, too hard to resist were these leggings, they come in other colours as well, but this dark steel like silver was mine.

The perfect accompanyment to the outfit, are the New release Kalnins Fashion shoes called Coquette, now I will let you in on a little secret, these shoes are actually cheaper on Xstreet HERE , so check them out at either place – and it isn’t really a secret because Maris Kanto the owner told me himself lol.

The shoes not only have beautiful preset colour combinations, but also the ability to choose which colour where, depending on what strap or part of the shoe you choose at the time, the presets are a great guide as well, I used one of them and then just changed one strap setting to get the charcoal, so it was easy. They have sounds, shiny , colours all contained in a drop down menu, there are also feet lights which is a novel approach, but hopefully no one will use outside of a studio or photo shoot need.

The downside to these shoes is, that if you do not have a modify shape you will have your hands full trying to mod them, and I am not even sure you can to a size 0. They are designed to wear with a size 11 foot, and if you have some height to your avatar they look splendid. There are demos there to try first so you can see how you fare. The style is just stunning, and they are definitely a spring into summer sandal heel.

The hair I am wearing is too cute, it is Torn by Red Queen and I just love how the hair is wrapped around the neck as though like a scarf, those with long hair at some stage have either done that, or wanted to when it’s been freezing cold. The back of this style is just gorgeous as is all the Red Queen hair, thick and long, with playful styles and attitude.

I am wearing the New RGI Sunglasses by DeLa, there are no limits to her creativity, the sunglasses are in various colours that are rich and vibrant, with different lens colours depending on what you are wearing or in fact your mood. The shape of the glasses is vintage at its best, with the large frames covering most of the face to give off that lady of mystery look.

Behind every Lady of Mystery is a little girl, or inside at least.Back when Loco Pocos first opened it’s doors to the public I had all these exciting conversations with Damien and Washu. One such conversation was about the ability to indulge in Loco Love but stay regular sized and shaped.

Finally it is here, The Loco Poco, Poco Pals. They are just adorable, and yes they are all wearable plushie style Loco Poco characters, I was so excited to see these, and not only can you wear them but you can play dress ups with them. They have an inbuilt Menu that allows for choosing clothes, facial expressions, Name them, what colour eyes, and fur they will have and so on.

This is me putting all my Poco Pals to sleep for the night, and yes I still have my ALF Doll and my Dolph the Stuffed Dolphin and my very own Panda Bear that is 37 years old lol. So next time you are in a dither about what to get a friend for a rezday/birthday, anniversary or just to make them smile, this is the ticket.

The skirt I am wearing is the Signaling through the Flames tutu, and the tank is the beautiful Reckoner tank that comes in two options, both of these are also by &Bean and are seriously girly in an antiquey way, love them.

The hair I have on is from Lamb, the store is also at the Cupcake sim so it was easy to grab, it’s the Teased Up style that I believe is the much requested hair from the hat/hair previously released, with a tad more backcombing done, which I love doing RL too.

Not all the Katie Faces made the pic, but these are six of the eight lovely New Make Ups for the La Sylphide Katie make ups. The lips are so soft and supple, with a light coat of lippy and the soft eyeshadow under those divine and long lashes.

Stephanie has done an incredible job on the lashes of these skins, I am not wearing any prims at all, and the uppers are superb. When the skin creator takes this much care in doing each lash like this, wearing prim ones is an insult. Make sure you check out the demos yourself.

A big shout out on the New poses by DARE, these are the Antoine Picard inspired poses, not only are the original artworks beautiful, but you cannot not take a look at the vendor ad by Chance Greatrex, this vendor ad to me is just so gorgeous it reminds me of 1920’s Musical Advertisements, I just love it.

Sock it to me – Miel, Gala, TRUTH, DarkMouse, Bliensent + Maitai

It started with a glimpse at Cajsa’s blog post at  It’s Only Fashion, that then ended up me unable to get over to the store. Then on the weekend Arabella came to visit us at The Deck and she was wearing a delightful dress/pants combo that was just too pretty to ignore.
On tping I was to find that it was the same store I had been meaning to visit, and Newdoll and I bought up most of the store. Since then Miel has joined us at The Deck for a spell, and now everyone is hooked. So much to our delight tonight they released their New Sock Factory items which allowed me to quickly add new pics to the already planned post, and tada this is what you get.

The Miel items are the perfect combination of staples,whether you opt for wearing the items as compiled on the vendor boards, or change it up a bit with other pieces, you will have way too much fun with the pieces.

The first pic I am wearing the Bo Lace top, this top actually has a lace collar, but I went without because I just love the wavey finish at the top hidden underneath. The tank style top comes at the moment in black and brown, and the back is incredibly detailed. Wearing some shorts from Twosome that I have had for ages and not yet shown, they are the Autumn shorts in grey and very cute.

Needing a little something around the hips, I went with the Efemera belt – wishes she would come back – by Storin, a lovely sculpted belt with a great buckle. The socks, oh the socks… I have decided I am going to rename this kind of sock to a Socking, it is too thick to be a this day and age stocking , but too high to be a sock. These definitely remind me of partially rolled down woolen stockings of the start of last century, and earlier lol.

The Lo Socks are to die for, and they did at the time only come in the black and the brown, and then later that night Miel gifted to myself, Newdoll and Ashia the New Plaid in black, oooooo we were an excited bunch, so much so we struck a pose in our newness and Newdoll took a pic and put it here.

Anywho, the socks are lovingly slipped into the 3 way Engineer boots by J’s these come with scripted options of up down, and different colours to choose from, its like a fat pack in one. Wanting to add a little more girly girl to the look, I couldn’t go past the beautiful and delicate Burst of Colour Necklace in Copper from DarkMouse, the jewelry and now hair from this store has just blown me away with each new release.

The  Red Queen/rQ Crush hair is a semi latest release in the wonderful New build, the detailing amongst the twisted locks of this style is fabulous, make sure you try on all the demos, they are so much fun.

The next pic is the dress/pants combo that drew us in. The SF outfit by Miel is so adorable, with the  softest looking fabric tightly stretched across the bodice of the dress, you could be in for some trouble if one of those straps tore. The tunic is just lovely and what better addition to the mix than a pocket with flowers, and I don’t mean embroidered or printed on the fabric, but actual flowers inside of it, it is so dreamy a look, but you do have the option without.

The drawstring leggings come with and the whole combo is perfect for a spring stroll in the sun. More beauties from Dark Mouse in the form of the Flowers are Blooming Necklace and Earrings, so delicate and beautifully crafted. Aradia is a hairstyle by TRUTH , a lovely loose pony tail that actually features a flower, that you can make invisible or colour change, I am wearing the Plum Hair Rose by Essentia. Sorry to say I couldn’t find any info on the bag other than Kotoricco Basket , and it was a gift, but you can see that any basket or bag would look fun with this outfit.

Speaking of bags, I got overly excited to find that June had made new Bellissima bags for BareRose, only reason I saw them was she set them out at The Deck, otherwise I would have missed the release somehow. These are fabulous, they come in a range of colours and you actually get 4 different ones in the pack, different places to hold them from as well as a bonus clutch purse, all for less than 200L.

The top is again the Bo Lace Top from Miel, this time with the CH Silver shorts, I coudln’t resist these at Miel as they are of course Grey and well just yummy. Adding to the mix the New MI Knee High Socks , these are so cute, prim topped kneehighs that have buttons to fasten to, they come in solid or plaid as do the NEW LO socks in more colours, I mean this is just a SOCK explosion, that you will not want to miss out on.

I love the plaid versions in both styles bunches, but seriously that ribbed waffle effect that the solids have as well, IT IS TOO HARD to not be able to wear both at once lol. I cannot wait to see more incredible designs from Miel.

So much stunning jewelry today, the Art Deco Onyx Necklace, Belt and Earrings are from Bliensen + MaiTai, they come with some great options, not just resizing, but also gem and metal change, and not just one gem but you get to change two different sections, so you can go all one like I did, or have a mix for more playful colour combos.

The flats are the Mina flats from TRUTH as is the Hallie hair, a ncie sideswept pony, that has a loose fit look to it also, he does that well with styles recently, that not too tight casual but classy look.

Recently Gala Phoenix of Gala @ Curio released the April skins, a skin that was all youth and innocence, but with a slightly fanciful make up line. Blending her usual two different tones and freckles options, with two varieties of each make up, the Gala skins have fast become a must have for lots of people and rightly so.

The full lips slightly pouted, and the button nose definitely gave a purity to the face. The make ups come with two variations of the same idea and the April Skins that were first released were a big win, especially the pure 1 and 2, as they were the two that were the most every day all wearable. But I think something happened, because April 2 came about, I suspect a much requested further line of make ups was called for, something that people had more choice in than the fantasy blends.

Seriously though I think more than just make ups happened, because DAD’s LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS, April 2 could get you and yours arrested. DAYUM this skin is way sexy and wayyyy too pure at the same time.

The bodies on the April skins are the same as the last few releases, incredibly detailed – and I do mean incredibly – with such a divine cleavage for those of us that don’t like to look too lifted when it’s obvious we aren’t, that is one of my favourite parts of the Gala @ Curio skins, the fact that if you are wearing a shirt or top and obviously no bra, your shading and detailing between the breasts shows that, it is wonderful.

The make ups are wonderful as I said, and they do have such a freshness to them, so try on the whole store and find your favourites, and make sure you are wearing a low cut blouse or shirt, naked will not give you the same effect neither will a bikini, you really have to see what I am talking about clothed the right way.

The hair I am wearing in most of the skin shots is the Angelina hair by TRUTH , this is a must have, I am so in love with how it frames the face. THe Bikini is the LeeLee bikini from Artilleri, the follow up to my all time favourite Leo Bikini, with super cute ties on the side and in more animal prints.

Due to time I didn’t get in the second make up options in the Gala @ Curio April 2 line, so make sure you try them all on, and also really understand that the dark and light in the packs are actually a variation in skin tone, this is so that if you are feeling a bit in need of a tan you can go darker , and if you are feeling a bit chilly and want to snuggle up you can go light, this is a dreamy skin option, as many of you I am sure have actually gone out in a fit of omg Im too pale, or too tanned breakdowns and bought a whole new skin – not that thats a bad thing :P.
