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.

Tartan Power

CC

Callie Cline is always up for some fun, and with the Tarty Girl sets it’s that and more. I love tartan, checks, plaid, gingham it’s all fabulous. The cute girly girl dress has an edge to it with the tartan in this case, and I really like the semi scoop in the boostier top.

One thing I did notice about the dress, is they don’t come with glitch pants, so make sure you have some sort of leggings or tights handy or you may just be invited to more parties than you want to be :P.

I am wearing it with another Callie Cline creations which is the Snow Baby Forever Sweater, these sweaters come in three different lengths with the prim collar, cuffs and actually a very scots like beanie hat – not worn.

The necklace and earrings are from Dark Mouse and are the Big Flower sets, stunning long chain for the necklace that is really appealing, drawing attention to the lovely scoop of the dress.

I saw Thema last night at an event and she had on hair to die for, I hadn’t seen that release from LeLutka and was so over there first thing today, only to find that with the new layout there were wayyyy too many styles I never saw released :(, I made up for it though lol. This is the Dianna style – not the one Thema was wearing – a beautiful smooth bun.
CC.

Wanting a bit of an edgier look with the tartan I opted for just the top, as it comes with variations with the dress. This is the Zippered top from the Red Tarty Girl- Tarty Party dress. I really like this as a top, especially with the zippered look, the pants I am wearing are fantastic Leather Pants from Adam N Eve, they come in lots of colours and the leather work is great.

Speaking of Fantastic, the New J’s 3 way Engineer Boots are INCREDIBLE! these aren’t just Must Haves these are more like, omg if you don’t own these you are bonkers. I am all about boot love, and especially biker/engineer boots. These are so well textured and the colours are amazing , but in the usual J’s style you do not just get one pair but numerous options in the one pair.

These boots are scripted that you get full up look, turned down look, and turned over 2 look, but even better is that you get to choose right or left as you do it, so you can wear one up one down, swap them around etc…that is a lot of looks with one pair and such a bargain.

The belt I am wearing is from Virus Co. the Scrap Mechanic just added a bit more fun to the look, it even comes with a hand held wrench as an extra with it, and is in a few sizes as well as mod.

This hair is the DJ style from LeLutka, another New to Me style which is actually a fab Unisexy style. The Leather Wrist Cuffs are from Sable Rose and they come in various leathers as well as other fun styles, they make a great addition to your edgier looks.

CC..
Lastly another mix and match look using the fun pieces from Callie Cline. The Forever Sweater in Brown is a beautiful shade for this time of year, I love brown mixed with other colours, especially like here mixed with pink.

The sweater also has a second option for the collar, shown on the top pic with the scarf, Wearing also the beautiful Jeans Sculpted Skirt from Dutch Touch in brown, this skirt is lovely, the texture is great and the fit on the sculpties was easy. This skirt comes in other colours and the new seperates from Dutch Touch are perfect for coordinating with each other.

Recently when Newdoll, Whimsy and I went on our last big shop we ended up at Jaywalk, and while I was praising and ooooing about the fantastic socks there I realised there were many I didn’t own, so fixing that these are the fabulous Kelly Socks. These are the 3way Engineer boots in another colour, these are so fabulous you really Must Must Must get them.

This last hair style is the Sasha hair, a fantastic concave cut from LeLutka, beautifully styled and covering one eye, it really is lovely.

Now about those skins, Bebae recently released Coral , a New skin that is just all of the things we already love about Bebae and more. Beautiful bow shaped mouth in the glossy lips that Torie does an incredible job of everytime. I really don’t know how she manages to create such a natural gloss but it is definitely her fortay.

I will show more of this skin in the next post but as a glimpse the cleavage and shading on the upper body you can see is just beautifully orchestrated. Each skin comes with three eyebrow options depending on what colour hair you wear you have choice, choice is wonderful :). The make up in the Coral range is as superb as usual too, some rich and glossy looks combined with some basic looks for day to day wear.

Lastly and importantly 😉 they has shaved o/, lol. Remember DEMO DEMO DEMO.
