One night in Bangkok

Rux

Ok so remember when you were new? when outfits were worn straight out of the box – and yes that still does happen, and I as much as the next person do it, but shhh I am telling a story :P.                                                                                                                                                              But then we grow and adapt, and we start to see things for their pieces as much as the whole story created by the designer. Or even if we don’t break down the pieces, we see more than one or two possibilities emerge. Often that is what blogging is for, to share an idea, to show the possibilities. Even if a design has appeared before your eyes in the past, someone may just captivate you with their way.

That is why many of us blog, I know it is why I do, and I know it is why my friends do. Often time restraints and backed up inventory cause us to show as is, add some accessories and done.  It may be more about the skin, or hair, or shoes. So many things can come up, and there are often not enough hours in the day…but try as we may, we want you to see what we see. That spark of interest that made us want to jump up on a pose stand and take numerous shots, crop, splice and dice and then present them however we can, so that you may just be excited with us.

I love those days, the days when an item just sings for attention and is well deserved of it. I love when a release makes me be a better blogger, and want to excel in presentation, there are releases where I know myself I have leveled up as we say, because I have just been so enthusiastic by the items.

I personally think that every single blogger out there does an incredible job, if their motivation is to share, to develop and to enhance not only your inventory lol,  but their skillset, then we are lucky and blessed to share their journey. Whether they talk lots like me, or only link and credit…whether they add lyrics or poetry, or each pic has a short summary. All in all we are lucky to have a glimpse into their creative mind, and I treasure that as much as the next person.

Now about my pic, because honestly I didn’t even intend that to go where it went ramble wise, but am glad it did.

The skin actually started it all, it is a newish release by YS & YS and even though I covered up much of the face on the left, it does feature both red or blonde brows and hairbases. The skin is also beautifully freckle adorned, but in a true fair skinned way that is just lovely. The make up on the skins is a feature more of the lips and  eye make up, so the skin having freckles is not a hindrance in anyway in that area. The brows are fantastic in the red and blonde, but I am totally boning on the red.

The dress I am wearing is a knockout, not only are the colours and fabric divine, but you actually get both with purchase. The dress comes with bra and panties, and it is an incredibly sexy look, straight out of the box.  It does also come with its own pair of fishnets, but I opted for the Allure girdle and stockings from Maitreya, wearing one of the natural pairs rather than true black, to give a softer effect. This is totally the kind of look you can imagine on a working girl in either a smoke filled tavern in france, or some back street opium den in asia. The outfit actually reminded me a lot of the old show China Beach, and Marg Helgenberger, mind you it was the Dana chick every guy I know was totally in lust with.

For the hair I went with a style from I love Olive, for both in fact, and actually had originally planned to wear the one on the right in red for the pic on the left…but then tp’d over and grabbed this Sophie style that totally rocked it. The dress reminded me of a wrap dress, so going with a more mature and dignified look I added some trousers – I love that fri.day calls them trousers – and the cashmere turtleneck from Boom. It brings so many women to mind this look, from the North-shore to Soho and beyond.

Either way you wear it, or whatever spin you put on the dresses or dresses like it yourself, make it the most fun and something that may just inspire you to jump on a pose-stand of your own and take pics – don’t forget to share them though :).

Where Going

Lots of different backgrounds today, I was a bit all over the place, and then finally of course found my fav on the last pic lol. Anyway it is good to play. I was also playing with shadows earlier as you saw, having done so a few times in the past which I think I only threw on flickr. Mel, Fia and I went out and about shadow playing on day, and it was great. But still not as good as I would have liked.

The new Kirsten Viewer gave me more than even this mornings pics, but I still have to play with it some more. Usually as I told Elysium, I use two accounts to take shadow pics. As I have enough to load with my account as it is. So the alt is my pic taker on the shadow viewer, and that usually works well. Seeing as the alts also have the VR Studio HUD, it is not an issue for pic taking.

The shadows in these pics though aren’t real, they are done in ps. Anyways, about the pics. First one is a mix of some newness. The other day I was at Niniko and I am a sucker for Gacha Machines, to my absolute delight the skirt I am wearing was in one, seriously even though the pack was available, I just had to Gacha lol. Cord skirts are right up there with denim skirts, when you find the right fit, you are just in love. Speaking of love, I am sure by now all of you have been to the Summer Sunrise Festival at Tableau. If not then you best hurry, as it ends on the 25th and is actually not only fun, but is raising money for a good cause. They are raising money for the Center for Biological Diversity… and have made a collab outfit with some incredible content creators.

Also at the same time there is an incredible opportunity for one lucky person, to win 30days store space at Tableau…that is for many the prize of the century, it would make many want to start a business just for the ability to have one there. Tableau has always been that kind of sim, from way back when it was a pier style build, with cranky starfish on the ground, and all in between builds up until now. The sexy and beautiful top I have on under the jacket is one of the items available, the Sun-drop V tank comes in 4 divine colour blends, and I love them all, so much so that without even seeing them, they were the colour palettes of my four builds this past weekend…now I can match my homes lol. Emma Gilmour of Sand Shack Surf just made a commercial for her store HERE

The other great release from Sand Shack Surf are the shoes, with cork wedge soles they are yum, even coming in navy which I am chuffed to see, even if I did end up wearing the brown lol. Another item I picked up at the festival is this stunning locket, which you can of course load your own pic into . So delicate and really beautiful to wear. I of course dragged a pic of Mel in there, but the pic that comes with is adorable too.

If you have been under a rock lately, then you will have missed the huge accessories release from LeLutka, bags, hats and belts up the whazoo. The shapes and style are great, but the texturing of them is genius, they look as though you could smell the leather. They gave me a great opportunity to use the recent Around the World pose set from Storin. These poses come with an arty portfolio style bag for each one, but of course they work incredibly well with other bags, such as these. It also helped with the great toweling coat I got from Ruxy the other day. Such a surfy look down here to have a hoodie jacket like that, the only thing missing is some Mambo print.

Moving on to the beautiful Short Trench coat by Maitreya. I have so many reasons to want to wear this all the time. First off it’s cold down here and hot up where you are, but this coat would bring that altogether nicely for me. Then there are the colours, it is a pretty high chance you are going to know what colours will come out in a Maitreya release, what is new and fun for me is the names Onyx gives them. The third thing I adore in this coat is the belt, the absolute realism given to it by tieing it in a knot instead of messing with those annoying pull through loop belt things… I LOVE THAT THEY DID THAT!

I mixed some older Maitreya in there, and same with the next pic, the older Sarong top, with the new Viento skirt. The skirt comes in options, without belt, belt seperate and belt attached. The colours are light and fun, and you I like that I was able to two tone contrast with not only the skirt, but also the Aaquus Shoes. Easily tone matchable to the LAQ Aline skins.

Next time you are on the lookout for bag poses make sure and grab these ones from Storin, they really do come in handy (pun pun punnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn)
