So spoiled for choice in Second Life, whether it be an item for yourself, or a gift for a friend or loved one, we are an incredibly lucky group of Second Life residents. Because we are residents, and such an incredible community, those that want to, can always know what the public overall want, what drives their customers and what comes next.

Handy tools to have at your disposal me thinks. Mon Tissu nailed that with the release of their new lounger range of clothing. It is the holidays, and after all the fancy party frocks and what not, the snuggliest and most comfortable clothing is going to be the go…whether its sitting in front of the telly watching reruns, or watching the little ones as they wear themselves out with their new toys, the clothes you can love in are the most wonderful. It could be your first Christmas with a partner, and the new lingerie pieces from Mon Tissu are gorgeous, in such stunning colours and print…the long pants, not shown are unisex and well it all comes down to the idea of cosying up at home for the next few days.

I mixed the clothing with some pieces from LeLutka, their military range is so fantastic, the hat I have on doesn’t even need hair, and the pants can be worn with or without the puffed out sides, which I think are just awesome for old movie lovers. In all the pics I am wearing Isabeli, a skin by Glance, the body is stunning and the face is rich in wonderful make up options with some very strong features. Glance is great at the range of ethnicity in her skins, and so you should definitely demo Isabeli, it also comes in pale.

Now for the love of BOOTS. I have been waiting for Maitreya boots forever…every few months I will just IM Beau and declare BOOTS! and move on again lol. I finally got mine and everyone elses wish, as it was in fact in my mind boots that put Maitreya on the map in the first place. The shearling boots are incredible, not only the amazing soles, and straps and leather work to yet again die for…but the ability to change textures on the features, gives you so much bang for your buck. it also gives you something RL shoes don’t, that little extra ability to coordinate with our own looks.

So many colours to love, one of my favs would be the army, you can of course just go with the solid colour throughout, but I did some picks of mixing it up. They are on Marketplace for gifting, make someone stoked this Christmas.

All the hair is Exile, and there is an awesome style out for xmas gift if you hit up the subscribomatic in the store, but by now youshould already be in it :P

P.S I almost forgot it is my Christmas already down here, so I hope you have an awesome time with those you care about, and if you can’t then I hope that you know you are blessed and loved.

What a day for newness today has been. The hair from LeLutka was a surprise as we had all been awaiting the release of the FAME shoes and legwarmers, which I have been teased all over the place this past week. I really love the professional style of them, mixed with a more modern and European use of colour and style. I have these shoes in plain black leather in RL, and I have worn them so often for different reasons. Definitely impressive job interview shoes, especially for fashion retail, they say you know what is what, and yet you also know you will be spending a lot of time on your feet, the sturdy heel and supportive shape are integral in the style.

The leg warmers come with , but are an option, as they are separate attachments. The legwarmers are texture change, and you have a solid or striped option in those, they are so pretty structurally that I can see them becoming the go to warmers for months to come. Now as I said the hair was a surprise, but when you see the names you will probably guess that they wanted to keep it as a surprise, and that is so nice. I actually saw Willamina who I am guessing they were named after in the store after the release, and Gorgeous is a no brainer, it has to be after GoGo of JuicyBomb so the colour was an easy choice too.

The use of the same bangs for a few of these styles was awesome, the pulled back twisted pony is marvelous and totally looks like a pulled back version of the other two, and I have discussed that in the past, that often this just enhances the reality of it being your own hair, rather than extreme changes as many of us do lol.

So then after all that to find out that Gala was about to release new skins called Ice Queen, and not only that, but there are lipstick and eyebrow tattoos in blonde and black available, fingers crossed that they will seperately purchaseable as she keeps her tones so precise it would be awesome. I can see this skin being a development of all the begging for the Yum mouth and the recent Autumn face style, a really beautiful face and the most amazing glossy lips, they are incredible, I don’t know how she does them like that, I can only imagine she pours gloss all over a scanner, which would make for a very expensive experiment – so do not do that at home .

As I went down to the river

MonTissu Party

MonTissuCas

I have been having a lot of fun with the stock images I have taken, in these pictures again it might look like they were shot on location, but no, all done in my VR Studio. I was absolutely floored by the picture that Anya OhMai did in a post the other day using one of the backgrounds from the Second Life Stock Images flickr group, she is so talented, that it rocked to have something from the group used by someone so wonderful.

Both backgrounds are from Lula the home of Mon Tissu, that finally opened today, to much aclaim. Everyone I know has gone gaga over the release, and I myself was so impressed by the detailing of the items, you really cannot understand how amazing they are just off the vendors. An item I haven’t shown yet is so well structured it totally had me fooled.

The other day while Whimsy was swanning around in her Mon Tissu goodies, I was intrigued by how ‘real’ the skirt she had on looked…now don’t get all persnickity about photosourcing, because there is a big difference between sourcing and just taking a pic or downloading an actual garment and shoving it on a template. Things are sourced in SL all the time, for instance try handdrawing a knit pattern, can you imagine having to draw some wool make it look like wool, then mold that piece into what would look like one part of a stitch? then to repeat that hundreds of times until you get one row of knit, to then again copy that over and over to be able to get a patch big enough to make a texture for a scarf.

Or good luck getting really beautiful leather shoes/boots if leather in some varieties wasn’t sourced. Anyway, not saying these things cannot be achieved, just saying it isn’t always practical, and if there is true work done to the item, and the sourcing is just a small part of the overall finished product, then you need to learn the difference when throwing around accusations. This is all coming out ranty, but that is not the intention.

What I was getting at in a round about way, is that the skirt had me totally fooled, what ‘looked’ like it might be more sourced than not, wasn’t even on the mesh texture at all, the skirt was done so well at the front with sculpties that I had to zoom and cam and turn and go ‘OMG’. That is what you will never realise from a flat image, that often what can look flat or have a more realistic look than you assume it should, is actually just made so well that it looks real.

Just like I remember when Maitreya Gold first came out, people were actually accusing the pics on flickr as being images from another programe that they couldn’t be second life, Maitreya sure showed them. Anyway, I will show that skirt one day soon, and you will see what I saw, because the Mon Tissu blending of real and handdrawn is wonderful, and I cannot wait for more.

The party dresses in the first pic are so adorable, and I can see wearing the tops or skirts of the dress as seperate pieces for other fun looks. So many bows, even my hair is a bow, loving accented with some divine and delicate pieces of jewelry from Whippet & Buck another incredibly talented duo. Wouldn’t you just love to sit in a room and pick the brains of creators like these two fashion brands, I know I would.

Boot love all over the place, how Elie Spot – otherwise known as Emma Gilmour – was able to top her recent cowboy boots with these ones is just amazing. If we could somehow convince her to spend the next two months only making shoes and boots OMG. The cardigan in its beaded vintage beauty, with the underneath beaded tank, is a true showing of how meant to be Mon Tissu is, and how it’s creators are really in eachothers creative space in such a great way. I took the belt from the Park Avenue top and wriggled it down to the hips, stretched it and voila a great bow belt for the jeans as well. Even the jeans are mod, which is just amazing.

I am wearing Curio hair in the top pic, and Exile new and old in the second pic. The new hair is Hannah and so cute, love the loose braid on the side, again Kavar just makes such stunning and feminine locks.

Make sure when visiting Mon Tissu you take your man with you, he can look around the incredible sim, add pics to the stock images group :P and get used to being there, because future releases are going to include ones for men.

Lula location
The long anticipated opening of MonTissu is just over the horizon, it will be open this Saturday officially, but if you have been chomping at the bit to see the new location for Lamb, Tres Blah, Mon Tissu and Turnip then Lula is where you want to go. Turnip Sorbet has been working on the build for the past few months, and it has been well worth the wait. The style of stores are just charming I wish there were more of them to explore, the landscaping is some of the best I have ever seen, this is not just a commercial sim, this is a destination.

Earlier today a few dozen fans got the chance to have morning tea with the owners of Mon Tissu and special guests Lamb and Turnip. Lamb has already opened her store with the new rlelease of her hair Wild Nothing, which I am wearing in the post. Tres Blah also released a new skin, but I am wearing an older one from the blur event of a few months back. I am also wearing some of the tops that are due for release, the So Boho top I have been coveting for weeks now, the style is superb, old vintage handcrafts made into something so wearable and chic, the Joli beaded tunic is a divine cleavage enhancement without being too out there. Both tops are created by the two owners of Mon Tissu and truly show their talents.There is a lengthener skirt base to the So Boho top, but I loved the finish it had without as well.

I was watching an old tv show earlier, and the main girl was wearing some great gaucho pants. I have a few pairs in SL but was thinking that some of my favourite pants might be convertible, and sure enough with mod and copy as an option I was able to shorten and edit the prims, and voila, my Fri.day trousers are now gauchos…I even flared out the pants layer, so they weren’t a tight fit, yay for mod clothing.

Whmsy and I were fortunate to be invited to the preview of Osakki’s new mainstore opening the other night. Not a huge collection but a great start, and such a great array of mix and matchables. The leggings I have on were part of that release, and if you are a leggings/tights fan, then you best get on over there. The leggings and most of the clothing is so 80’s reminiscent for me, so I had to go there, with my leg warmers and armwarmers I could totally audition for my leading role dance number, after I get the man and of course have fabulous hair all the way through.

In both pics the shoes are new, the first set being the latest slouch boots from Gos, so many options, with metals changing and the leather option of the boot, or the straps and wood/sole base, its all interchangable. These worked out really well with my pants, and with the tops of them being not so tight, they are great for tucked in pants for winter weeks to come. The flats are adorable and from SLink, these are June shoes and are available at the Albero event that starts today…so many things start today, it is funny how often stuff starts same time as other stuff, I wish the lindens would make some sort of google calender and we would all put in dates and lock them in, would be so much easier on everyone. It is one of those collective conscience things I guess, it freaks me out how often we talk about something amongst a small group and then others end up doing same…Whimsy thinks we are bugged lol.

Anyway the event is a gifting one, were whatever you buy is transfer so you can do some incredible Christmas shopping in advance, and everything is supposed to be priced under a USD Linden equivelant, which is nice for the budgeters. So deprim and have a wander over there too, if you haven’t seen the Anya Ohmai pig snowglobes you haven’t lived and they are at the festival too and OMG so cute
