Anti Valentines what a concept, I for one think the whole ‘proper’ aknowledgement of the day is really beautiful…not the hallmark moments, but the actual priest the whole thing was named after, and what he did to help others in love at risk of his own life – or so the story goes.
Regardless I have some pretties, most of which come from the Chic Limited Event starting on the 12th of Feb. The event runs for two weeks and some wonderful items are up for sale. Hucci has this 24 Karat combo, that is very showgirly and fun to wear, I added some wings and a tiara and I am off for a night of anything goes. The middle gypsy look is a mix of top from deetalez and bottom from bounce, these skirts and tops come in various colours and are just delightful to wear.
The babypink very athens like look is so adorable, but I could not wear the other attachments, one being a pulsating heart with arrow through it around the neck – way too much for my delicate flower like sensibilities. The dress goes well with the G wedge anti V shoes from Peqe, these are wicked cute, and have a great granny floral texture on them that works with the pink of the dress.
The hair I am wearing is from Raw House, a new to me brand, but in existance for the last few months. Their hair is a mix of scene and standard and so divine, especially the concave Sydney, which is funny because somehow Sydney hair always has this look, or so I have noticed over the years. This one has extra long wisps at the front and a texture change insert at the nape of the neck and one side of the front. Very cool to keep on getting different looks from the same colours.
The second hairstyle from Raw House is Adrienne, a beautiful updo style, but that is low on the neck and can be just your out and about after work look. I really love the styles I got to see at Raw House and they also have an item in the Chic Limited Event. The store also has Male hair, and I urge man and woman to take a look, and definitely follow the stylings of Jay Khaos…I got to talk to him for a bit last night and he is a straight up guy, that has a lot of passion for his store, and I look very forward to styles to come.
The undies I am wearing are from Somnia, also at Chic Limited and so adorable fun, they come in great colours and I love how they look mix and matched too, for that undecided look. Showing the new Sweetheart Skins by Gala Phoenix of Curio. This face is a softer look, but still very diverse skin than the recent Jasmine, with more make ups that are for every day wear, but not to miss out on the Valentines oppurtunity, there are a few combos you will love, the jealous green eyeshadows and the lovely blends of deep pinks and red lipsticks, it all comes out beautiful.

Speed Blogging, I gave myself 50 mins start to finish, and asked Mel and Whimsy for a theme colour wise, of course they had to be nasty and go with purple. But I definitely won out with this look and a much loved store. Also as it is halloween it was a different take on the dressing up in costume idea. Four mins left to spare YAY.

I came across an adorable store today, very Elf like in build, with a kind of space age mysticism added in. Instantly I thought of Beauvoir of Maitreya. If you have ever seen Beau you would know why. So this is what I would think he would wear if he was a girl lol – dodges the smack.
Ok he probably wouldn’t show his tummy as much as I am, but still it is such a beautiful store and he makes me smile everytime I see him. On a seperate note, I once did a pic pile up of him and Onyx so maybe it will give you insight into what I am rambling about, it is HERE .
The clothing is all from the same store, the range is magnificent, and the prices WOW you just really need to get over there and look.
Being able to move through a store like this, and just really love the textures alone is really lovely, even if the style isn’t yours, you really cannot fault the execution of each design. One thing I didn’t notice at the time, is that all the perms differ, some items are no copy, some are no transfer. I rarely ever pay attention to that as I keep everything , so unless I am on a mission of gifting it rarely matters, but it is nice to find a store that does actually have such lovely pieces that you can give, just make sure you check first.
When I put on the first set I knew that it needed more magic, and the jump to the Inspired Sparrow wings was simple, these wings are stunning and with the sculpties being perfectly shaped and xcite compatible, which is a giggle and a half sometimes. The wings beautifully compliment the Asian Flower necklace by the same creator but in a different store on the same sim. I love when creators branch out of their comfort zones, but keep to their own names so that fans of their work can really grow alongside them.
There is nothing better to me than open fronted or short fronted long skirts, I love them RL and SL, best way to show off boots there is. Yes with flexi skirts your boots are going to jut through regardless, but its so nice when it has a little more realism to it.
Angelina boots are slimline boots in a crushed leather look, so very detailed, with the laced up backs and full length inside leg zippers – the toes are pointed to Whimsy Winx standards of acceptability *snickers*. Another beautiful feature of the Angelina boots are the seam up the front, these things are as real as can be.
All of the clothing was available in at least 4 colours, and green fans unite, because this store loves us…and not just green but THAT green, the soft autumn like green that is just cherishable, yes I almost did do the post entirely in green lol. Many of the outfits also had other options, such as the black Insect Latex set on the second pic, that has the sheer open look top and bottom, as well as the closed, so even more bang for your buck.
As you can see also, you can wear the skirted outfits without as they do come with pants options, and some even came with a second pair for boots, those were made on another pants layer though, not underpants. There are mens items also at the store on the second level, so be sure to take your partner, and if you are into RP definitely give it a visit, because the prices are amazing, and the work is splendid.
I really love how they look with the Timeless IIÂ skins too, with new make ups and a lovely canvas to show off such lovely clothing, they also come in a freckled version. As usual I love the mouths on this skin, and the way the eyes are shaded gives them so much character. Make sure you give the Demos a spin, maybe even grab them on your way to the clothes.
I couldn’t resist wearing the Maitreya hair either in this post, as the white is always hair Beau wears, and the new styles look fantastic on Men, and now with the NEW Tones, Beau has actually changed to Silver and once you see the demos of the new colours you will see why, it is GORGEOUS.
