Just over a week left of Skin Fair, and it has been crazy busy over there…just as well you have the Garden City Relief Fundraiser to keep you occupied while you wait…

Ok so SIA is a skin that is a teaser skin by League, the saucy wench Nena has teased and titillated us with this release, because the body and the face are just glorious. Alas the skin won’t be available in full until after the fair, so hopefully you can wear SIA Wrecked until then, because seriously this skin has the yummiest bum.

It comes in 6 skin tones and so many options, hair bases, cleavage, freckles and two different lipstick options. Make sure you try on the DEMO at the fair.

I am wearing the flickiest 70’s retro style hair from Exile, this hair is available in the naturals pack at the Garden City Relief Fundraiser, so be sure to get yours. Kavar the creator of the hair HOPE, is actually also a New Zealander, so this is a very important cause for him, we were all so worried about his safety when we heard.

Got me some cute Capri’s on by WoE, these have a great paint effect to the denim, and look so awesome with my sneaker boots from Duh that I completely forgot I bought ages ago. Seriously is it just me or is Linden Labs making things pop up in your inventories too? things that you haven’t seen in a hundred scrolls at different times are suddenly there.

A fun item to show off the SIA skin and all the tones is the catfight bodysuit from Miseria, this is a really cool RP item, and there are so many wonderful things at Miseria, so even if this isn’t your cuppa, something will be.

My great background is from the Second Life Stock Images Group pool by fellow blogger Aisling Macmoragh .

When you say things like ‘Yo” around Mel there are consequences, this is what we learned today… HERE

Like my new hat? isn’t it cute, in a deathly morbid way,but what else would you wear with a skin tone called ‘Dead”. I am chuffed too with the matching of feet to skin, yay for the Maitreya Gold HUD being so easy peasy. These are the skins about to be released at Red Mints booth at Skin Fair, they are the Frost series and the fantasy aspect is wonderful. I do also like that there is a more subtle version, as well as add on make ups you can get seperately.

Perfect hair for this style hat is the Roxy from Exile, with its brushed to the side look, I had the perfect platform for the hat, without having to do any editing at all – other than actually swapping the hats side, as it originally was on the other, but yay for copy paste.

The dress I am wearing is the new by 24 hours Annie dress, and it is sleek and chic. Definitely perfect for a femme fatale, and so able to add too with accessories and what not, but I left it all about the hat and shoes, and skin, and hair and….

One of the best things about sales or discounted areas is the chance to pick up accessories you may not consider usually…

Such is the case with COCO’s outlet room upstairs of their mainstore, not an accessory on its own, but an actual piece of a combo that was a MUST HAVE for me. The tie scarf thing I have on is a divine piece and was actually part of a shirt package, but at the discount price you feel like your only paying for the tie and the shirt is a bonus, or vice versa, I grabbed two different coloured ones, but I may just have to go back for more, they are too yum.

Also picked up at the outlet are the gorgeous pinstripe pants, I never saw these when they were out normal like, or I would have bought them then, I am a pinstripe fan forever. They do come with a white belt and all that jazz but they are really easy to mod, but you can of course wear without.

Whimsy came up with an awesome Corporate Bloggers Challenge the other day, of course it was already after I did a post exclaiming how my outfit was great for work, the meany wont let me add those pics either lol. Kidding aside I did intend to go there with this post, but I ended up a bit more PR girl on the go, or whatever more laid back professional girl on the go can look like. Good timing is the new Zoe cropped jacket from Ingenue, layered over the RB Tank from Maitreya and I was good to go.

I am still wearing the Allure with socks, I did take them off but they work so well with the look they went right back on again. The other new hair from Maitreya is Lotte a gorgeous low slung ponytail with a side part. It is beautiful. Speaking of perfect timing, the new Gracie panties just came out for FLF today at Whippet & Buck – more with bras to come in future weeks – which gave me the chance to show off the new PXL skin Linda G3…this skin is not only wonderful looking, but has so many options. Hairbases, freckles, cleavage, lipsticks and eyemake up tattoos, as well as dark and light brows, I am not sure if I am forgetting anything, but you will see them all when you DEMO DEMO DEMO and do not forget the upcoming Vanity Skin Fair that starts this sunday PXL has a booth there, so you can see what is new and current on location as well.

Wool skirt and no jacket

Rid

Reason 465647 to love sculpties would have to be the midlength skirt….

I love mid length skirts, and some make fantastic ones with prims and flexi alone, don’t get me wrong, some of my all time favourites are made that way…but it is really nice to be able to not flexify and have prims doing things other than just staying still. Mind you you do need a very calm AO for this kind of skirt, nothing too bendy at the waist and sticking your bum out, I save those AO’s for other looks, but I love the ensembles I have created today, with these wonderful woolskirts from Riddle.

Not only are they wonderful as sculpts, but with the glitch pants being made the way glitch pants should be, even if you have a leg peeking out etc, it all still looks good. Another gorgeous item from Riddle is the Cable Knit Cutie sweater on the right. The sweater comes with two sleeve lengths, I opted for the shorter version and layered another sweater from Fri.day underneath, with extra long armlenths it is a nice cozy look for the still chilly days.

Boots recently released by addictia are the Adnata boots, these are so cute, not only do they have detailing and cute oversized buckles, but they also have matching leather wrist cuffs that are so cool, totally working my biker chic. Then of course I had to wear my Allure with socks today, I love these shoes with socks, but I also love with without, but sometimes you just want that extra ” I am fashion ” feel going on.

New Hair New Hair New Hairrrrr, Maitreya today released New Hair, and the Nadja style is one of three new styles, the fourth being the gift item  of a few months ago that everyone is still asking for, so was finally released for sale. Nadja is just divine, its long, its wavey and if you know Maitreya hair like I know Maitreya hair, then you will notice new texture types not colours, adding a little bit more wave to the styles.

The other day I was fortunate to stumble across Pink Fuels SALE on the Ember skins, not sure if it is still on, but if it is you best be getting over there to buy it all up. The singles are a steal at 150 the mini packs even more so at 300 and then the mega is 800L. It is very youthful in the face and I would think could look great on some of the back to school avs I have been seeing around a lot lately, you know the little ones that are really big ones in disguise lol.

Themed skins are not that common with established skinners, but Gala Phoenix always has such a knack at incorporation both a themed look and a regular every day look for Gala lovers. The make up is incredible, and the gloss as usual on the lips is superb, but it is the asian look that will have many an asian girl or lover of asian looks squeeling with glee.

As usual this skin is shown on my shape, so you can see that even with no body tweaks at all, it is still incredibly asian looking, so if you have a no mod shape you are still good to go , but of course DEMO DEMO DEMO. I was considering doing the whole Geisha kimono thing, but then was feeling a bit wilder and went with this remorseful killer look. Because even though I just killed dozens of people – they deserved it of course – I am sad that I had too. Actually my Prince Mel helped by providing me with a gorgeous Katana to hold onto, actually no transfer but with the power of edit, we were able to line it up right, and the Olice Juice pose with a bit of animare tweaking came up just perfect, it was actually the pose that made the image come to mind.

Often is the case with poses, and I do often adore how completely different ideas can come to mind than the pose was intended for. They may create a set of la di da dancing poses and I see someone reaching for a jar of peanut butter in the kitchen, hair in rollers and family waiting for their toast at the table. It is fun to find more out of what can sometimes be limited.

The Gala skin will be out sometime later this week, so keep your eyes open for that release.

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.

Not pants, trouserrrrrrs

Mon1

When something feels so wrong, it can end up soooo right. I love fate, how a day can be a disaster because people just make you feel all heartbroken and stuff, and the next day starts off golden with new people changing that, and slipping right into the space the others left behind. Mind you I cannot tell a lie, once over the hurdle of destruction that started yesterday, it ended up on a high actually, and I am looking forward to seeing where all the things it brought forth turn into. Face time makes me happy, actually spending time looking at the person I am chatting too, feels so much better than the constant IM’s, it is what made SL so inviting in the first place over other chat programmes and has to happen more often.

One thing that kept happening to me yesterday was admiration for my pants, true story, I was out and about and three times got asked where the different pairs I was wearing came from, sure enough both styles came from Mon Tissu, and were their latest release this week. The twill trousers up the top pic are gorgeous, the fact that they are also called trousers make my heart go pitter patter. The detailing on them is wonderful and the colours they come in are perfect. The sweetheart tank is beautiful with lace trim and such amazing fabric it is like soft velvet, so pretty and perfect to wear with pants or a boho like skirt perhaps.

Have you seen Lou Lou ? well you have now. The jeans in the second pic are called Lou Lou, and if you are old enough you will remember those fragrance commercials too. Great thing about these jeans, again complimented, is that they come with both pants cuffs options, often it  is varying types of straight cuff, like flared or bootfit etc, but in this case you get the rolled or straight and both are excellent, as well as the denim washes chosen, light grey and used were my choices, so nice.

Both looks I finished off from just the tanks underneath, even though the tanks on their own are so cute. The shrug on the left is the latest from Riddle, I love that she has gone into focusing on some seperates lately, and this shrug has such lovely sleeves, making it a little more standout than others. Mayden couture comes out with this amazing racing style jacket, and it comes with a variety of bases, with each collar cuff colour, so neat, and the pink is Yum. I went with the blue though because the make up on the new Tasia skin by UnBra is HOT HOT HOT.

A billion different cleavage options – exaggerating – and brow and hair base choices all come with the abundance of really rich make ups in the UnBra range, I will be showing more of those later. The glorious hair I am wearing is from Clawtooth by Clawtooth, do not despair ladies and lovers of all things hairy and vintagey, the Clawtooth main store has moved to LuLa temporarily until tableau is finished remodelling. I love the straight but so thick locks of both styles, and the bangs are just bonus, either sleek and tucked or thick and bushy, it is all win.

I am using Frooti poses today, and decided to go with the laying down pose up top, I don’t shoot often enough laying or sitting, so gave it a go, and it came out really cool, thanks Frooti.
