New New Newness. New shoes are always fabulous, and even better when it is new boots.

I was so excited to find out that J’s has released a brand new boot style, very nordic with the fabulous knit socks, but it is the clog style boots that are just divine. Perfect leather, and wonderful leather colours as usual. there is a non knit option in the scripted menu, which means if the nordic socks aren’t your thing, then you can wear your own, or without.

Still doing that mix of looks, what with it being hot down here, and all the clothing being released is for colder weather, but luckily there are still adorable little skirts that have been created in heavier fabrics, but short in length enough to still show off the gams. I love these porcelain skirts, so sexy and cute, yay fishy strawberry. I am wearing the Jane aviator jacket again, but this time without the lower sculpted portion, because the finish to this jacket is superb, like woah, so it is totally a jacket on its own. The L’opera bodysuit is a must have item, also from Fishy Strawberry, plunging back, high front with shoulder pads to boot.

I am wearing another of the latest YS & YS Skins, this time Regina, and I opted for a freckles tattoo from one of the other skins, that actually works so well no matter the tone. Great idea to copy and paste all your tattoo layers that come with other skins, and bundle them all into one, spend some time playing around with them and see if they are interchangable and then folder them into ones that are, and ones that aren’t. Much easier than having to find them when you think of them.

This waif shit has to go…Quote by Whimsy Winx

WInter Poca

HushYs
What is the reason for the name of the post you ask, well it was kind of a discussion about the shapes that some designers choose to use as their own. Then building their items on their shapes, and if the items are no mod, then resizing scripts make the item bigger all over, when sometimes it is only a small stretch in one direction that is needed, thus ruining the aesthetic of the whole outfit. Many designers do take that into account by providing more than one size, but in reality it would be nice if the designers considered more the shapes of the people, and had a builders shape so to speak, much like hair makers have always kind of adhered to the one size concept, and shoe makers as well. But then again, we would prefer mod, not scripted in the first place.

It is kind of funny, because with the teen grid merger only a month away, the sizes of residents are going to apparently drastically change. I remember talking to Asuka Martin, the owner of Dernier Cri about that once a long time ago, and she said that one of the first things she noticed was the insane heights of us over here on the adult grid. I for one am tall RL, so have argued to keep my height as it is, because I am not amazon in stature. But I have definitely noticed that many are shrinking down over the past 12 months, which kind of makes me wonder where that will leave the tinies and kids…do they even have kids and tinies in the teen grid? It is going to be an amazing transformation grid wise, and I for one cannot wait…I only have one wish and it might seem silly to most, but I kind of wish that kids couldn’t talk in IM. I wish that was a safety measure that LL would put in place, I know that keeping them to PG and all that are good steps, but they are pretty much only saving them from visual adult content. Anyway, this post wasn’t supposed to go off on some rant from sizes to mergers, I think it was the redbull.

I love that with the help of layering, and of course all the fabulous extra layer options we have now, that you can still make fabulous use of dresses that may have been designed with warmer climates in mind, but add some wool tights and an incredible faux fur coat, and you are in winter wonderland. I am feeling so much love for cowboy boots lately, and tonights episode of Hellcats didn’t help. The fringing on the ones from J’s is a nice soft touch. The jacket is from Aoharu, and you can wear it long or short, I opted for short so you could see more of the great Hush dress from SySy’s.

Yes as corny as I am, even I didn’t realise until after the pics were done, that my skin is from YS&YS, and my dress is from SySy’s. The skin is Sierra and as usual, all the great options and incredible make ups, they really have come back with a bang, and hopefully a much needed break.

Everyone out there needs to send some love to Cajsa Lilliehook, she is an incredible woman, and a rock to so many…I hope that she knows how much she means to all of us and gets better soon.

Lots and lots of skin love this week. Tonight the latest release from Gala @ Curio was unveiled, two beautiful skins, one called Autumn, the other called Yum. Yum has a more ethnic nose than Autumn and such incredibly glossy lips. Autumn is reminiscent of past skins from Gala, with a more mature face that is going to be loved by many I am sure. One thing of notice, is that while the skins still have the dark and light options in tone, this time it is blonde and brunette brows as the option for each make up, not a second lipstick.

So for all of those out there that had troubles with brows in the past, you should be very pleased, because these two colours work well with all sorts of colours. Also if you purchase the fatpacks, there are two bonus make ups which is just awesome value. Freeing up the face with the beautiful Details hair from Elikatira, this style is an updo with that casual nuance that allows for every day in all situations wear, that is just perfect. A little twist, a few tendrils and a beautifully shaped bun, so girly. Also spot on in the girly is the porcelain skirts from Fishy Strawberry, these are just so cute, and so 80’s but with such lovely warm fabrics that they are go so well with my new Linda boots from Berries Inc.

Summse has been honing her sculptie skills and these are her first ever shoes, and they ROCK so hard. Toggles on the sides, sheepskin lined and leather ties, they are just amazing for first shoes, I cannot wait to see what comes from her next. Keeping snuggly warm at the toes, and snuggly at the upper portion with the Dion shirts by Fri.day. These are soft henley style shirts with an angled button line that ties off with a small piece of ribbon. The colours are great, and other than all the fantastic layers, it is the arm extended glove layer sleeves that always have me glad fri.day knows how to treat it’s customers well.

You had me at Ahoy

Mila

Roughly 15 mins ago the Mila skin by LeLutka was released to the public. The skin is a new range for LeLutka and a new way of packaging as well. The skin is now sold with one hair option, cleavage enhancer. The other hair colour bases, brows and teeth attachment options are add ons you can buy seperately. The idea is that you don’t pay for what you don’t need I guess.

Loving the red hair options, I had to go with that, I love how the red base and brows look, and you can get the combo as an all in one to save on layers tatoo wise. Of coure I am having to use the regular 2.3 viewer to get the full advantages of multiple layers, but if you do use 3rd party viewers that do have tattoo and alpha layers, you can still use at lease one of the options available…just be sure to try on demos and see for yourself what you will need. Also the teeth option is a new to me system, by using the Alpha layer to cut away part of the lips of the skin and allow for the teeth attachment to be shown, however I was able to still see teeth from the actual skin without the attachment, so you have it both ways, but remember, unless you have multiple layers of alpha to use, you wont be able to use this and wear v2 style shoes or other attachments at the same time, so again, demo demo demo.

There are six new tones in the skin line, and they are unique to the add ons, as there is skin tone mixed in so that the effect is flawless. 7 make ups as well as a base which is make up free, and all of them are just lovely…I especially love the eye make ups on these ones.I am showing a lot of the body with the last release of lingerie from Insolence, very sheer and rather exposing this line is, so until now I did not have the moxy to wear it, but with a discreet arm lift and denial about my bottom -  the way low rise jeans are these days in SL I didn’t think I was showing more than has been seen uncovered lol – there it is, I especially love the options of panties in this set, and the amount of layers options is insane.

I am wearing the Milla hair from Maitreya for the skin pics of the Mila skin, because the reds are so close, and it shows off the hairline, The Lelutka team did say there will be their own hair base hairstyles in the future, so yay on that.

The NEW Hair I am wearing is from Elikatira, the Blind style comes with two bangs options, and the overall style of it is just GORGEOUS, the flicked back and clipped side, with the beautiful loose braid, so perfect and so the level of divine we are used to from Elika.

I am wearing it with the new anchored frocks – I so love that they called them frocks – from Whippet & Buck, you had me at Ahoy with these. Not only are they nautical lovers fashion fun, but the babydoll can turn into a lovely vintage look cossie with one toss of the skirt and into the ocean you can dive, so perfect for those sailing trips with your partner enjoying the ebb and flow of the ocean.

Go forth and find your sailing mate, and have a glorious weekend, with your new skin, new hair and new frocks YUM.

Under the Sea

ExYs

I issued a Plurk Sunday challenge today, but it doesn’t have to stay confined to plurk. The challenge is that everyone comments on ten blogs, they can be store blogs or fashion blogs, just share a positive thought and spread some joy, as it is always nice to get feedback, and with the many thousands of readers out there, it always amazes me how rare it is to see comments, even if it is just ‘ I love those _____ I am off to shop ‘.

The post today all four looks started with the divine hair from Exile. Kavar Cleanslate is so amazing at offering such a wide range of styles with his hair releases…and these latest ones are just divine, another hat/hair for me to love love love. The first look because of the length and style of the hair under the super cloche hat style, was not so vintage but more modern, which makes for a nice saturday morning brisk weather look,while heading to the local cafe for some breakfast.

The second look is a lot more va va voom, mixing Cynful and Zaara is done twice today, the first with this look has the beertilicious dress with the beautiful distressed shrug. This fluffed out hair is the perfect length to show off how incredible the texture work done by Zaara is. The third hairstyle was very student like, so I went preppy college girl…I know in reality that no college students around here dress like this, but in my mixed reality they do. The skirt was a flf item, but am pretty sure it comes in other colours. The jacket is from the Jane store, which is a new store for creator Janie Marlowe of older Mischief fame…really cute store, and the tank I have on is actually part of a free tank table she has.

The dress on the right is the latest from Zaara, this comes two ways, wrapped with bare skin revealed, or with an underlining colour. For some reason SL ate my underlining version, and while I could have shown the bare, I wanted to experiment with the idea that find the right dress, you can make your own inserts in your own colour choices. Sure enough the Beertilicious from Cynful fit like a dream, and so I wore the light tan colour, which matches the colour of floral print in the crimson dress…YAY.

All of these looks are also showing the latest boots from YS & YS, the creators behind the brand recently took a much needed break and are back and making stuff already. These boots are beautiful, and have a sculpted sock that can be worn with in contrast or not worn at all…there are two tone, and solid versions, in a variety of beautiful colours.

I am also wearing the Amber skin by League, stunning make ups, so many incredible options, cleavage, hair base, freckles. WIth two different packs of make up colours to choose from in wonderful rich tones. Try the demos and I will show more in my next post.

Muddy Waters can’t keep me away

Mud3

First off friends list, my apologies for the crashity crashes. I really wish Second Life was a little bit more stable the last few days, it has been a bit crazy.Call for Couture starts tomorrow, and there are as I have said so many items that are worth checking out, one of which will be the release of new shoes by Maitreya Gold – not shown here, but I did get a sneak peak of those and the Auction ones and they will not disappoint.

With all that crashing some items did not rez for me well, one of which was the PXL skin that is the pret a porter item for CfC, it is a stunning make up, but every time I crashed I took too long to rerez that I gave up and wore some of the same line with which is comes from.

On the left I am wearing the So Many Styles Pret a Porter set, the Autumn set is a oversized wool sweater with a beautiful cowl neck, the skirt is one prim sculpted and full, making a lovely silhouette that was matched in part by the large hat from LeLutka. It also matched incredibly well to the two tone boots recently released at LeLutka so it was all win and all happy for me.

The look on the right is a mix of G’fields recent, and available at Call for Couture Bolero coat, so stunning and it comes with three length options, this being the short. A little dressier of a look, with the In Hibernation dress by Addict also from Call for Couture – I love seeing Kianna push herself into higher end fashion, so this is a start of more cocktail frocks to see I hope. The combo worked a treat with the Hana shoes from Maitreya Gold, the frills at the back working so well with the ones from the jacket. The whole ensemble creating a backdrop for these insanely beautiful jewelry pieces from Donna Flora, the Mari set is hers for Pret a Porter, and wow just wow, Donna Flora always impresses and the range at CfC and at Jewelry Fair will have you drooling.

If waiting impatiently for Call for Couture, I suggest spending some time at the four Jewelry fair sims until it opens, as well as all of the other events happening this weekend, it sure is a full one.
