Surf's Up! Part 2

More stunning bikinis by Rebel Surf Co. This time the Novelty designs. Pretty, contemporary patterns, in fact you could call them funky…lol.

Again, well made. No bleed onto the skin and no dodgy seams. I am loving these bikinis.

Emilyn Knoller, the designer, is such a sweetpea. After seeing my last blog she dropped her set of Dot Kinis on me. Again three great colours: Bogus!Blue, GetOut! Green and OMG!Orange (I love those names). So, I decided to choose one, shoot it and add it to part 2…lol.

I am looking forward to returning to her shop as she whispered that a one-piece is in the making. I can’t wait.

Surfs Up! Part 1

It’s been a long time since I was truly inspired with my inworld shoots but yesterday I felt that buzz again. A friend passed me a landmark for a bikini shop and, as I adore beachwear as much as lingerie, I went over to take a look.

WOW! Rebel Surf Co is a cute little shop sitting on a stunning turtle beach and contains the some of the best bikinis in this virtual world of ours.

Well made, lovely designs and pretty textures all combine to make beautiful bikinis. Ideal for any beach event or just lolling around in the sand.

I was like a kid in a candy store, totally spoilt for choice. I decided against buying the whole shop as it would give me an excuse to return. Instead I bought 2 ‘fatty’ packs, each with 3 colours included.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves :)

Full colour version shot can be found here…

I realised that I had recently bought quite a bit at Whippet & Buck. So, I decided to put together a very simple look with their Victoria High-Waisted Pencil Skirt and their Simple Cropped Buster.

Both pieces are well made and designed, allowing me to keep the look classic yet simple.
Sorry, this is such a quick blog.

Summer Shopping

Two of the best places for summer SL shopping are Artilleri and Whippet&Buck. With a bit of Humming thrown in. From left to right...

W&B Lizzy Cropped Boatneck in Coral. This one is a real teaser, Modest front then a tied peek-a-boo back. It comes in so many colors that you should just get the fatpack and be done with it. On the bottom are the Artilleri Johanna Denim Shorts. They are a bit high-waisted with the best rolled cuffs ever! Earrings are Whippet&Buck's Aemilia. Again in many colors. And yeah just get that fatpack LOL

Artilleri's Darla shirt in red, minus its red tie is paired with W&B's Georgie shorts in West Coast. Many beautiful colors. Don't make me say it again ;) Violet Voltaire Heart Container earrings and pink plaid flats from In Her Shoes complete the look.

Finally, those Artilleri shorts again with the CheckGauze Shirt from Humming and Shiny Things Zimmy Flats.

So get thee to a store and stock up for summer!

Jori Times Two

Today I'm blogging 2 items named for Jori Watler. If you know Jori, as I do, you know that it would be impossible for her energy and moxie to be contained in a single outfit, so here we go!

The first is a delightful cardigan, designed to mix and match with other 5th&Oxford goodies designed by the uber-talented Roslin Petion, but it mixes and matches nicely with the rest of your pixel wardrobe. I'm wearing it in with my favorite Narwhal pants in Egg Blue. Tucked underneath is the Simple Shimmer Tank in Lemon from *Cupcakes. Shoes are the Jane Wedges in Tan from Shiny Things. I'm wearing L.Fauna's Lapine skin in Pale 2. The makeup is the group gift one, Faberge. Hair is an old Truth called Lucy in whatever he was calling that color back then.

Jori, by MichaMi was made at Jori's request. It is a very simple dress, yet complexly constructed with the sculpty top and skirt. Several sizes of each are included and they are mod. The textures and interior shadows are very well done. The dress comes in a range of colors, both muted and bright, but for me the yellow is the prettiest :) I'm wearing it with ETD Heels Strap in Sunshine. [BTW ETD now seems to be closed]. Earrings are from Paper Couture and the hair is City Life in Red Spice from FuseMelon. I know the skin is PXL Creations, probably Kim in Natural with wine lips.

Two by Two

Since I've been a very bad blogger™ I have a Noah's Ark of backlogs. So until it's cleared up a bit I'll be posting 2 looks at a time, hopefully with some connection. The connection this time is the new Tiny Bird Postcards from Italy hair in Copper, it's chic, flirty and has some lovely flexi bits.

My top is the upper part of the :NuDoLu: La barboteuse rose outfit. The rest of it is beautiful also, but I also thought it would just make a nice blouson top over my trusty W&B Stein shorts in Finch. I'm wearing the TOMBOY Sneakies in Spring Plaid. These are an inexpensive sneaker option available on Callie Cline's sim. My skin is L.Fauna's new Lapine Series in Mystical/Pale 2 WITH FRECKLES. Last, but not least.. another old favorite, []::Tuli::[] wooden heart necklace green/amber. I've had it for years and it is always the one I call on when I want a natural looking necklace for an outfit.

On the glam side here's SySy's new Ruby Jumpsuit in Gold. I'm not wearing the leg prims and I did have to mod the belt a bit to fit my avatar, but it was worth it. It's a very soft texture, finished off with the wonderful tie belt. AND a sexy laced up back with a little tie. Shoes are Adam n Eve's Babii in Amber. Earrings are Amida in Gold from Mandala. And the skin *sigh* is the new Claire from La Sylphide. It is the Gold makeup in Light

Black Beauty

Last week Nicky Ree dropped on me two colours of her latest creation…the Fiona Gown. One was the orange celebrating the Queen of Netherlands birthday and the other was black, always my favourite colour for formals.

This dress is everything I love about evening wear: Simple, elegant, classic. Where to start? The texture is intricate but not overpowering with Nicky’s usual hand drawn perfection. The bodice, a strapless top with a bust detail of carefully pleated folds and a fall of material from the cleavage. The skirt, svelte with a flare and train. Again, beautifully crafted and designed. The clever bit? The fact that the bust detail, attachment and gloves can be bought separately so you can mix and match to get endless options. Also, the skirt attachments come in opaque or translucent…making it a very pretty detail indeed.

This dress demands glamour, whether under or overstated. I kept the make up simple with a PXL Grace skin, the hair I went overboard on with CBC Kitten with a Whip. The shoes were N-Core TEMPTATIONs in black (not seen).
I felt the jewellery had to be opulent yes not overshadow the dress. For this reason I chose to wear the earrings only of the Alienbear Gold Princess Rosana. Finally, to finish the whole ensemble I wore Zaara’s Kashiti booble ring so the gloves got noticed too.

I love this look and I suspect it will be a firm favourite of mine to dance in for the near future.

I re-stalled Snowglobe only to find out that I can only get shadows with a screenshot and not an inworld snapshot. Even so, am loving the shadows again.

So, playing with the environment editor, I decided to stand under my weeping willow tree and shoot the 5th & Oxford Lila undies put out for the 50Linden Friday treat. Pretty, versatile, well made and designed underwear that I would wear out and about given the chance…lol.

Windlight setting is Bryn Oh's Immersiva grey dust

Bustle Me!

Not being inworld much at the moment has curtailed my shopping habit. So for this post I have resorted to trawling the depths of my inventory.

I have a penchant for bustles and as such was delighted to rediscover this cute, wonderful dress from Miel…the Oh Leafy Dress. A simple tulip top, with or without shoulder vine/leaf detail, compliments a sculpty mini skirt beautifully. The skirt is a work of art. From the front it appears to have a leafy underskirt or hem. However, the star is the back of the skirt: a mini, layered bustle. Fabric layered with net layered with leaves. Beautiful! The leafy motif is echoed across the dress itself as a print. Clever, well designed and executed piece of clothing.

I kept the rest simple. N-Core Temptation shoes in black, a PXL Grace natural skin and’s Anna hair in scornful red.

Hmmm, maybe not so simple, I added Zaara’s new Kashiti bobble ring and ellabella’s Pearls A’bloom bindi for a touch of glamour.

All shots were taken leaning against Voodoo Shilton’s wall at his music instrument shop…killer wallpaper and a bored moment work wonders…lol.
