Make a statement

Elite

So many incredible footwear releases this week, starting of course with the much anticipated Elite & English boots by Royal Blue. If you are a follower of Royal Blue you will remember that Marni Grut has been spending the last few years as both designer for her own brand as well as LeLutka.

Definitely sharing with us her UK origins with these incredibly authentic looking Riding Boots, you will not be left out in the cold stuck in a bog as long as you have a pair or three of these handy. Not only for women these are adjustable with ease for the horse breeding men folk too. I adore the colours they have been released in, and if we are lucky and everyone buys them all, maybe she may consider some more.

They look fabulous with the min nutary pants without the bloomer attachment portions, but also with these new released harem style pants from Fishy Strawberry, how cool are they, while they don’t have the proper lower portions on at the moment due to the boots, take my word for it they are fabulous. Coats and Shrugs, you can’t go past the last release of LeLutka without drooling over something or other, but the bolero shrugs in faux fur had me at rawrrrrrrrr.

Kit is the new face coming to LeLutka in the next day or so, and the all in one pack is just perfect. Eight skins that are base and 7 make ups with the gorgeous dark hair base option for all, my fav feature on top of all that is the NEW curl lashes that will have you begging for more – and believe me there will be more – but these that are now the come with skins packs curl lashes, are to die for. Sculpted lashes four lashes to a prim are so incredibly easy to fit, and colour change options at the click of a button, but seriously OMG the fit and look of these is remarkable, you will never take them off.

Dita Tran of Fashion Emergency and the famous former Model of some of the biggest agencies in SL has just opened her Jewelry store Fulo, her first release includes the statement earrings I am wearing now, bigger than texas these earrings are just YUM.

Deal Linden Labs, oh how I love you so, today you gave me a viewer that is working for me so far, and I am so excited with beta 2.5. But alas I have a complaint, more of a “WHAT THE?”

Profiles now go to browser, exciting right, the idea that you can google yours or someone elses avatar, or get it from the website I guess, whichever…but the downside is that for people that work like I do, when right clicking a notecard to get the creator, to then click their name so you can IM them or grab profile to pay them or drop an item on them NOOOO, you get webpage thing, or even worse something that says your handshake didn’t connect, well darn. So I had to actually search in the search section by name and then again same thing can’t get the regular profile, so had to open their IM to pay or pass, which leads to if they use viewers that do that, I know you are IMing me thing, your exposed to an IM you may not want to have at all.

Anyway I still love you when you make little mistakes…

On another note HUGE LOVE goes out to Flight Centre in Australia, for really coming together to help the flood victims, I have it on good authority that not only have they pledged two million, but also ten bucks from every single flight booked will go to help. They have many of their own staff up there struggling and have really gone all out to support and help, flight centre gets my vote as agency to travel with forever more.

Ok so I went to The Dressing Room last night and grabbed some stuff, the dress from Emery was my stand out fav, now some wont like the large label on the back, but with long hair or whatever you wont notice it, I kind of like the idea of people not having to inspect my crotch prim if they like the dress anyway lol. I wanted to show the dress different ways, and with the new Elikatira hair, as many pics as I could fit was all win. Me is a gorgeous style, similar to her own work for ETD in the past, but a bazillion times better crafted this time around. The hathair is actually part of the Seasons hunt, so be sure to look for that snowman.

The cinch cardigan by Mon Tissu is lush, and so beautiful to wear over skirts or pants, the fit is easy, and the options are great, even including a larger bust size for ease of fit. Leggings from Riddle and gorgeous Garter socks from Luck Inc helped with these fun looks, and woot for the Pow Pumps from Lelutka, love these MaryJane style shoes.

I am using one of the stock images by Cajsa Lilliehook from the Second Life Stock Images Group as my background, HERE .

A pirate life for me

Tasia

Like anyone I love a great deal on incredible clothing, and this one was certainly a surprise. Not a day deal or a hunt, not involved with anything else but withing their own store. Ok maybe a little bit of a hunt in the fact that the colours are spread within the store in such a way that you cannot help but admire all the glorious clothes you have most likely admired for years. I ended up walking out of there not only with 4 different colours at an incredible price each, but also another dress I had coveted forever, so it may have not ended up costing me so little, but it got me there and I loved it.

The outfit is the Lacey Lace mini dress, which is more of a two piece than a whole dress, but the style of this is so cool it can go from work to play so easily, and in the white and lighter brighter colours to choose from, can easily be considers resort date wear. Nicky Ree fans will already know that for the rest of January the set is 50L and there are so many colours to choose from. Large black boxes with red ribbons all throughout the store, and seriously it was fun tracking down the many colours and admiring everything in there. The skirt comes in either system or micro, and it is such a lovely mix and match item.

Adding the pashmina belt from Veschi that I tinted red, and some Jewelry, I was all gypsy lovin or about to join the Pirate King, in the new scarab hair from LeLutka, also new in the hair department is Charlize the banana bun as Thora calls it. A stylish updo for work professionalism or formal affairs, and by affairs I don’t mean being naughty, or you might mess up your hair. I am watching reruns of Dawsons Creek and it is up to that part where he finds out his Mum is cheating …dun dun dunnnn, seriously though as much as his parents were hot for eachother , the dad is smkin hot and the mum whatever.

The earrings I am wearing are the incredibly stunning Statement earrings from FuLo who will be opening a main store soon, cannot wait these are HOT. More of the beautiful Tasia skins make ups, so many to choose from and again all those different cleavage options, hair bases, and bonus lipsticks on tattoo layers…so much to love.

Long and Lush

Chic

To be inspired it awesome, often is the case that those seeking inspiration can get discouraged and lose their way, not such the case with todays items. Nearly everything I am wearing was inspired by something, and they followed their instincts and produced it perfectly.

First off the ChiC Management event is starting tomorrow and has a group of incredible designers under one skybox roof, with a theme. The items are beautiful and seriously the skirt from Berries Inc is now one of my top ten favourite skirts of all time. BUT not how it was created lol, due to some serious viewer issues on my end the white frills that are supposed to exist between each layer at the back did not rez for yonks, but I fell so in love with it that way, that I took copy and edited them away. The crisp military look of this Amalia skirt is just divine, and even though I could have mixed it with some serious LeLutka Military stuff from their last release, I went further back to an old fav blouse.

The grecian dress on the right is all Royal Blue love, she has been creating up a storm lately both in RL and SL, her poor sewing fingers are aching. So that she has been able to do anything for us is a bonus. The skirt comes on two attachment points, but also has an alpha layer to take away your bum, so that your ao wont effect the look.

Now the Hair OMG it is about to be released in moments and is the new styles from LeLutka and they are STUNNING Must Haves, omg so sexy and just totally addictive wearables. The scarf hair Scarab is texture change and both styles are just awesome. You can also get them on Marketplace if you hurry and want to get them before anyone at the store lol.

Ugg boot DNA

UPDATED Extend a Helping Hand Banner 2
Over the years, well all my life actually…I have been a total American Fan, all the way U.S.A. Then you came along and tried to take our Ugg boots. Then the doona, that was just not on, seriously the only time in 38 years I have been cranky with you has been over those two all Australian items, you can have the hillshoist, I don’t much care – I leave my clothes on it too long and they fade – but to actually go out and try and trademark what has been ours forever was just RUDE. But we won them back, and I forgive you.

Now those of you that have them, or have worn them, can never truly appreciate the Ugg boot if you aren’t, or haven’t lived in Australia for a long time. You can think you do, and you can get close to being right, but nope, it is ours and it is something that just runs through every Aussies DNA. For a start they went out from the mid 80’s until the late 90’s and you cannot convince a city dwelling Aussie otherwise. Indoor wear only was the Ugg, an expensive slipper, that allowed you to run out in the middle of the night and put out the trash when no one could see you in them. One night a house mate and I drove to the local chook shop for dinner and once out of the car I realised my feet were wayyyy too comfy, looked down and screamed, in the next split second there were two Uggs flying across the carpark because bending down too pull them off would have taken too long, I had to kick and flick and fast. If anyone had seen me I’d have died, and if anyone had been in the car park to see me retrieve them, I would have left them there forever.

But I cannot tell a lie, they do so have their practical uses, and now that it is ok to wear them in public again, they are great for ducking out to the shop because you just tore your last pair of stockings before a night out, so it’s a quick dash and slide into franklins and back to the house to put them on with whatever 6inch heels your going to actually go out in. I am not exagerating about the slide, Ugg boots and polished supermarket floors can be way dangerous, and super fun if you have good balance. There are some sexy looking Uggs out there now, and in SL that is no different.

My favourite Uggs of the moment are the ones by Bedlam an Aussie owner so true blue for sure, these have so many texture and colour options that they can co-ordinate with all your clothing, and even if you are frocked up for a dance, well depending on where you are, these are great for getting too and from without blistes because your new shoes haven’t been properly broken in yet. Speaking of frocked up, the second pic is me in the Queensland Party Frocks that are part of the Extend a Helping Hand fundraiser for our flood victims up there…these are by fellow Aussie Whippet & Buck they are so pretty and the fat pack is a steal, had to have it. The really pretty wold necklace around my neck is showing off a beautiful deep green leaf, and comes in both Male and Female options, also part of EAHH.

In the top pic I am wearing a mix of Mon Tissu, Riddle, Whippet & Buck and Fishy Strawberry, the Geisha belts from FS are so cool, they are an older item but do not date in their style and quality. The fun shorts by W&B are so cute, you can tell it’s summer down under with these being released, and even though I wore with the new Riddle leggings, they are still so fun and playful. The park ave shirt from Mon Tissu has a lovely line and length with curled up sleeve caps and its own waist belt not worn, but so cute for other occasions, I have actually worn the belt in a different post.

Another New skin by YS & YS this is Megan and such a different face than usual, I love the make up in this one, and its another that comes with matte lipsticks, you can either buy seperate or included, as well as new eyeshadow packs that match a few of the newer skins. The hair is also older from LeLutka, but I tell you what the styles about to come out will have you screaming for more more more.

Icer

The other week when I did the Ballgowns and Ballgags post I alluded to my next mixed theme. Mel of course coming up with it, but to my surprise there is not one of the items on marketplace at all. Now this is bizarro world to me, because I would assume this would have been made dozens of times,but either the spelling of the listings are wrong, or google can’t spell, because I checked my spelling twice just in case.

His theme was Lederhausen and roller skates, no kidding it was, and such a fun and frollicky idea too. But alas no lederhausen, and I couldn’t handle tping all over the place, so I improvised and then changed completely. But to my surprise also Mel was the one that found the awesome Rollerskates I am wearing that are actually also scripted to be iceskates, an all in one pair that has its own hud to change colours of boots, wheels, laces, and warmers, all so fabulous and the price is fantastic.

The skates come with their own AO and they are so easy to use, not only do they look great, but the all in one is a wonderful space saver. The railing I am leaning against is the latest from Diesel Works, the railing comes in both three piece arch shape or straight , the fun thing about it as soon as I saw it was that you could build your own rink lol. The style is very stylish, it could also work on a ship, on a balcony or even a runway… all so much fun and great poses.

The hairstyles I am wearing are the other two released on the weekend by LeLutka, again anime inspired and lots of fun, I especially love the sweep up high front of the Pam style. Claire by Tuli is the skin I am wearing, another recent release, and be sure to check out the new build over at the Journey Sim, Tuli has worked hard on it as usual, great changes to many sims at the moment with the new year.

In the top pic I am wearing the white loose shirt from Mr Poet, such a nice casual look, and just the right side of sexy being a mans shirt and all, the closes I could think for the lederhausen was the shorty overalls from Ivanka Akina, but then I decided last minute to go with the denim shorts from the same store. I stopped by Bubble yesterday and picked up this fun ruffled bodysuit that works so well for skating, and adding a shrug from sn@tch for added warmth with all that ice to skate on.

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.

War war is stupid

LeLu

Elikatira released new hair the other day, and the style is one that works as both a professional pulled back look, as well as an adorable youthful style.I really enjoy the colours of Elikatira’s range, there is something sun touched about this one, even though a brown it has the makings of a blonde.

I was having an 80’s flashback with the look today, tulle and military looks, what more can one fashionista over 30 ask for.The skirt is tres fab because of its solid  sculpted structure underneath, mixed with the whirly flexi tulle above. The jacket made me giggle, because I imagined what I would get medals for, I have in the past seen such things with their own giggle worthy info, but these are left sleek and shiny and up to your own imagination. I know Whimsy deserves a medal for trying to save all the Paper Couture shoes while they burned Tableau to the ground earlier this week, that was a hoot…you can see some pics of that on my flickr.

This is definitely a fun and frivolous outfit, and I am looking forward to more fun from LeLutka in the future, there is a definite slant towards mixed aesthetics coming from over there of late, yay for 2011.

When you share space with Whimsy it is all about complete looks, where as I usually am running around in all sorts of half put together looks, generally left over from my blog posts that end up only half on, or mixed with other things. I admit to it, the majority of my clothing is all for the posestand, but that comes from having had many years of only wearing who I worked for…and being so used to the quick change into work stuff, that it has still taken me so long to feel ok withwearing stuff, mind you though again, as much as we shop and change, half the time it is never actually seen.
Last night I was talking to Newdoll about Maiiki and it’s long run, a collab that has completely lived up to it’s beauty all these years. I had a set on to show her, and tonight went to Bijoux, apparently they are closing down soon, so all items are 50% off. I grabbed a few things that I thought would be fun to pull apart, and one of them was the Bambi set, that has this great top, scarf and belt  (on clothing layer) it looked so great with the left over Maiiki that before I knew it I was adding shoes and socks and some incredible New Exile hair and Voila, a beautiful smart dressy look that could go anywhere day or night.

Ballgowns and Ballgags

Ballgags and Ballgowns 1

Ballgags and Ballgowns 2

Before my gorgeous man Mel went away for Christmas, Newdoll, he and I were talking in skype as we do, being silly. I was yacking about what kind of posts I need to do next, and I was rambling on and every time I blurted out something, he would add something, so we ended up with Ball Gowns and Ball Gags, I wont tell you the others because you will want to do them :P.

So as I wont be with Mel for New Years I thought I could at least dress for it, and it is 19.5hours to go for me down here. The two gowns I am wearing are both from LeLutka, a last release for the year, and one that Thora had been working on for months, the gowns are exquisite and there are enough styles in the collection for you to find one you Must Have for new years. The top one has an over head cape like cover, but I wanted to expose my hair that I love which I don’t think you can get anymore but is too beautiful to hide, just as the Zoe from Maitreya is, both such elegant updo’s but in a non traditional way.

My favourite leather – even though to me they look like satin or whatever i say at the time – gloves are from 5th and oxford as usual, and I am so sad to see that they have reduced everything in the store to 50L and arepacking up for a while, some items i hope will be on marketplace because I love these gloves so much, they come in three lengths per colour, so don’t delay go run get them for 50L each.

The oh so yummy Harness Ballgag is by VR Foundry who makes my  VR Studio which is the only equipment I use, the ball gag fits the face superbly and back when it was made it won lots of awards, and is still awesome. It has all the bells and whistles a ball gag should, but my favourite part is that I can edit the ball to match my ballgown lol.
