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.

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.

Twee Twee Rockin Robin

MonBer

Yoga

Twee is such a cool word, it can be used for homewares or of course clothing. Usually it is more of an overall look, but in the Berries Inc case it is the name of one of their latest shirts, and so cute which of course makes it twee lol. I wanted to show how you could dressy it up for a day out and about, or wear it super casual for some soulful excercise.

I was out doing some  What’s New SL stuff – gosh I say that lots – and on entering Cheeky Pea saw their Gatcha, I am a Gatcha Addict it is true but I stood there and looked at the prizes and went ‘ please can I have a Yoga Matt ” and tadaaaa first try, then I tried again and said ‘ and one for Whimsy please ” this Gatcha machine likes manners and tada again…I was stoked. It has so many amazing yoga poses in it, and  with a click it rolls up and out of the way.

Today I  decided to feature it with the latest Mon Tissu Balcon Lounge pants, these are sculpted pants from top to bottom, and they are superb, I forgot to even check if there were visible issues with all the bending and as you can see, none. The pants also come in a Male version, so be sure to check out their gifting options in the store. Over on the left another new Mon Tissu item, the Loire Knit shrug is all prims and fit me easily with just a stretch, as it is a loosefit look it didn’t really need glitch as much as I first thought, and is great fun if you run out of layers because you wont use v2 you big babies.

A bit more Sn@tch when these The Office pants came out, I just had to get them, they also came with the belt, which is very handy and well made, I love a nice plaid cargo pant, and these are just that, and even though I am not a no copy kind of girl, I do think it works well in some cases because you can always share colours with alts or friends as sn@tch doesn’t sell seperate colours usually.

On my feet are the two latest flats styles from Elikatira, every time I think of Elika and footwear I remember the craziest blog post ever. It was actually her own ETD blog, where she released some beautiful flats, and the fans went mental, and not in the good way, seriously it was insane, they were practically standing vigile outside of her store lighting candles and rocking side to side chanting Hair hair Hair. Not just in comments in the blog post but chat groups too were all abuzz about how she wasn’t making hair anymore lol…which was NOT true, Elika like any designer in SL just wanted to take a break from hair, and manipulate some prims into anothe shape, and  had decided to create some shoes that she had in RL. The bit I found the most hilarious is that they weren’t even her first shoes, the so called number one fans had no clue she used to actually have a whole shoe department in her older store, and I still have my kitten heels bought in dec 2006 lol.

Anywho, these two styles are so cute, one is similar to the ones she had previously in ETD, and the others are flair, a style that resembles for me a bowling shoe look which is just adorable.

So ho Ho

Roy

No one made me wear purple, I did it all on my own. I am thinking that might be my new years resolution actually, embrace the purple…ok no not exactly, but I am finding I enjoy it with it’s mixy matchyness, and it actually looks hot with some of my fav ‘out there’ colours. If my typing is eratic today, it is because I decided to clean the space bar, and we all know that means break it, so now it’s clean and sticking? i know right, makes absolutely no sense to me either.

As far as the toothache is going, I know you are all sitting there with bated breath just anxious to know…well it is gone o/ so now I have to just wait to be able to eat something other than cold mash and I will be right. Speaking of MASH, OMG I discovered yesterday that there is a series called After MASH which starred Colonel Potter, Klinger and Father Mulkay I don’t know how to spell it. I was in shock, watched the first few online and LOVE IT. Why I am upset though is we never had it here, and yet for the last 20+ years every single year they do the MASH reruns during off season, so I don’t understand, and as a MASH lover, am really upset with whoever does the TV crap over here.

Rambling, I know. A few weeks ago YS & YS had a big release, and I showed you the Yeti Boots, but did not get a chance to show you the fabulous Soho boots and bags. The weave look of these are great, and I love the little touch of the scarf on the bag, you can use it to coordinate with, which I did in this post.

Up top we have some hair from Kyoot, this is not new hair, it is actually really old, and has been set up at such a low price before it is taken away apparently, so you best go grab it, the Wynter one is my fav, I already had that in the black, but grabbed the brown and red today.

Royal Blue did a new release yesterday, the skirts (not shown) are to die for, and you should go and grab The Dressing Room one as it’s a great price, and will have you wanting all the others too.At the same time Marni released the Yo Bra, a nice little basic bustierre that is just perfect for over or under or on it’s own. I want to see more colours in this, so buy them all, and then IM her and ask for more :P.

A Sn@Tch notice came through today, one of the most entertaining notice senders is always Sn@tch, even if I don’t have time to shop, or look at the pics, I always try and read them lol, silly I know, but if you don’t get them, you are missing out. I went over for todays special 69L pair of skirts and tank top set, and ended up buying the other two packs that the skirts come in, so I am skirted up in the sexy Confetti mini.

Not so mini is the Denim Skirt from The Strand, the mid length skirt is sculpted and has that perfect college campus look of days past. I don’t know I just really like skirts that length in SL especially when not all flex so they tend to seem more realisitc.

Buck Up for Winmer, or Sumter

FriWhip

A quickie, just to get my day started…which is kind of silly as it’s 2am here. I cannot believe it is the 17th, Christmas is only days away, and yet there is nothing really Christmasy feeling about it, unless you consider funny names on plurk and of course the decorating of sims and body, such as I have done today. But are you feeling the nostalgia, the need to find that ultimate gift for loved ones, or looking forward to as many of your family and/or friends getting together on the big day ?

As I get older, it becomes more about making sure I remember that the stores will be closed, and to be sure to order enough red bull in my next delivery. It is funny too because in the past I have shuffled my Christmas day – a day ahead of most – with being in Second Life to do customer service on Christmas Eve, a hectic last minute explosion where everything hiccups and it is all awesome – I miss customer service lots and lots, may have to do something about that in the new year.

Maybe I am still not used to being so overexposed to it so early, as soon as the halloween stuff was about to come down the thanksgiving and christmas stuff went up in Second Life, and for us down here, your thanksgiving meal is more like our Christmas, so somehow I feel like I have already had my turkey and all the fixins.

Lucky for me and other Aussies, there are designers like Dakota Buck taking care of our warmer weather needs. This weeks fifty L Friday items from Whippet & Buck are these adorable tiered skirts. The two colours that you will get are divine, and so easy to mix and match. I went with black for the pink skirt, but could have easily gone with chocolate, creams or even blues.

Moving down the legs, past The Strand socks and onto the New YS &YS Yeti boots, this is so cool, as only recently did I delete some Yeti boots from 2006-7 ish. They come in a lovely range of colours. Yeti boots are so much fun, not just because they look great, but who can not chuckle at the idea of boots made from Yeti fur…the idea that man has never caught one, but we managed to make shoes from them none the less.

The tops I am wearing come from Fri.day, the one on the left being the newer Rhapsody tunic, this is a two layered look, with the top layer having only one strap and a cute puffed sleeve attachment. I was impressed with the info in the pack letting you know that with all avs being different sizes, you may need to do some editing on the sleeve and that your AO ‘may’ effect it’s movement, due to the inability to do afull shoulder covering because of the one arm template. Many don’t realise that is how clothing is done, so that info is really nice to have provided. Another part of the top that I love is the belt, the thin mid torso belt is perfect for high waist skirts or anything really, adding an extra accent to a look, so worth the tops purchase just for the belt.

The fluffy furry stole I have on over the Dion shirt is from SDB, this stole is NOT mod though, my version isn’t anyway, so you will have to pray to the heavens that it fits. I am not sure if that is still the case with the item in the store, but yes, it’s a really pretty item, but unfortunatly with no glitch and no mod, it is not going to fit all. So if your breasts are bigger than a 65 and your larger than I look, be warned.

Speaking of warnings, the fun antlers I am wearing need a big tag hanging from them saying DON’T TOUCH MEEEE – watch that youtube it is adorable – but back to antlers lol. These come with emotes built in, so if someone clicks on you, well all sorts of things could happen in open chat, but thank goodness they do have a lock option, and they sparkle and look fabulous, and you know you want to find out what they say, let’s just put it this way. If I wasn’t partnered and Newdoll wasn’t partnered, we would have to get married now.

I have used and added another stock image to the Second Life Stock Images Group, some incredible photos have been added for people to use, I cannot wait to play with some myself. If you do use them, please mention it in comments, it is an amazing thing to know your images are helping others with their pics.

Flicky Flicky La La

Bring on the Mod Squad, seriously that is how I felt as soon as I layed eyes on this beauty.

The latest Belle dress from Elate is just marvelous darlings, and what better way to show off your sexy legs, than with knee high boots, an expanse of skin and this beautiful retro fashion. The fun thing about the dress is it’s ability to look both casual and fun, or sleek and dressy, it will all depend on the accessories, boots/shoes and how you flick your hair.

Speaking of flicks – see how I lead you right there – the new styles from Exile are scrumptious. The Nyx hair is amazing and Lake I really would love to have in a hat hair combo. Kavar as I have said before, really levels up each and every time he releases.

I could see wearing any of the colours of this dress, to christmas parties and the festive activites bound to occur over the coming weeks, the colours and style are perfect for it.

I made another backdrop background in PS for this post, and am adding it to the Flickr Group Second Life Stock Images, so I hope someone finds good use for it :).

A little something something, with the With Love Hunt still going on full tilt. The starting point is at Le Circue, and it is well worth the time, as the items are just wonderful, and of a really good quality.

Just one of the outfits today, but with hair and accessories also hunt items. The Bliss Couture hair is not your every day do, by no means, but I do love these styles for evening wear, and also they shoot so well, as they usually contain minimal if no alpha, so very little work has to be done on the pics. The accessories are very cool bangle stacks, but with the added rings and lace gloves, that is an awesome addition to this look, as it’s an option not a must, so you can play around with the look… very Madonna 1984.

The Nemesis outfit is all win also, what with the bustier being so nice on its own, and the skirt having two options, with or without chain, there is also an oversized chain collar, that is all win, but I decided that the Bow from Royal Blue was a must as I have been playing around with it on and off for a few weeks now – mind you I did lose them for a few weeks in between lol.

The skin I am wearing is another newish from YS & YS , I told you they came back with a bang, only showing off some of the make ups in this set, as usual though they are wonderful. Also some new eyes from Adam n Eve that just got released today. Such nice speckled colours and funnily enough they seemed to match the make ups in order lol.

Have an awesome time hunting for the other goodies, and get ready for the next instalment of the hunt that starts on the 10th.
