New, New, New!

 
 


 
 
 
OK, so...been a little lazy this week with the blogging.
 
However, I did go shopping and my first purchase was at Collabor8. A cool collection by some of the most talented designers. The [HANDverk] Rose Pumps caught my eye, so pretty. I love the rose back with the thorned stem as a heel. I liked them so much I got 2 colours...the ones I am showing here are Moss coloured. The only bugbear is that they look like system shoes of old when on, so cluncky ankles, but otherwise I love enough to wear them.
 
My second purchase was at Lellutka, via Gypsy Market. The BeStyle avi was wearing a hair to die for so I profiled it...now we have all done it, admit it ladies. [LeLutka]-MAGDALEN hair, streaked even. I just had to get it, I am sporting Bourneville_01 with the pony tail.
 
My last purchase was from TDR...Mimikris It! Dress in carrot . The skirt is all short and fluffy (or is that feathery?)and i love it.
 
The three items seemed to go together so..you have my look for this week, at least. The rest is listed below.

52 Week Colour Challenge, Raspberry Glace

 
 
  
Raspberry Glace....like the colour but seems more like mulberry to me.
 
Anyway, quick rummage in the old inventory and I came up with an old Leezu! hunt gift. I really like it. Unusual skirt teamed with a fabulous bustle (yep, still obsessed...lol). The texturing is very clever with the choice of textile pattern. Funky, fun yet still classy.

52 Week Colour Challenge, Pistachio

 
 

 
 
Pistachio…my favourite nut and a lovely colour
I went straight for my virtual undies drawer and found Mischief (sadly closed no but regenerated as Jane) Sleep Over Set. A cute underwired  bra and brief knickers with white piping on the upper edges. Simple yet effective.
The rest I kept minimum; new with old skin from PXL, old eyes from Mirel, a new hair purchase from Wasabi Pills and ever faithful Slink feet.

Baby, It's Cold Outside.

 

 
 
 
Now I am not going a bundle on mesh clothes at the moment because every mesh dress/gown I buy I have to tweak my shape. It seems even though I am a slightly teaked medium that I have to tweak for every mesh dress I get, even from the same designer. In fact, it turns out I am a small on the bottom, well...in general, and a medium on top, in general. Why oh why cant we have mesh distorters to adjust the item to fit our avis and not the other way round. At this rate I am going to have a zillion shapes in my inventory just for mesh clothing.
 
Anyway, rant over...on the whole I am steering clear of mesh dresses, gowns, skirts, tops, trousers, undies and swimwear. Having said that I have bought 3 coldLogic dresses in their sale this past week and only because they really suited me, with minor tweaks even after trying the demos.
 
The first 3 shots are of the Vergara dress, in strawberry and black/white. I Love the cross over bust halter neck top with the tube skirt. I love the texturing on the skirt, both the folds and the pattern. The whole creation is gorgeous. The pictures let the dress speak for itself. I liked it so much I bought 2 colours.
 
The last shot is of the Gish dress. A belted, classic two tone, tube dress. Simple and elegant. Again excellent design and texturing. I will be wearing it out and about inworld on a regular basis.

Old Hollywood Glamour

 
  
 
 
 
I have sort of given up with the colour challenge, mainly as my graphics card is playing up and rl is busy. Now I am just going to go back to blogging what I like when I like, with, maybe, a stab at the colour challenge when I feel like it.

So, I managed to take a few shots at the landing point at Howarts which turned out OK.
 
The quick run down is a splurged at the Vintage Fair...the dteails are below,

52 Week Colour Challenge, Deep Pink & Lemon Chiffon








Deep Pink...always good fun for me as it is so not my colour. I visited the Pink Ribbon Event and purchased this Boom mesh dress. I was a litte saddened that the invisible prim was noticable above the bust line, so I succumbed and tweaked my shape so that it would disappear under the dress. Having said that it is one sexy dress. The inner panel is slimming whilst the design of the dress gives you curves. What more can a girl ask for...lol.

Lemon Chiffon...oh my! Another not so favourite colour. This time I reached for a Nicky Ree dress (the flowers have lemon chiffon in them). A slinky, sexy gown that is slit thigh high on the skirt with a peek-a-boo side torso window. A tulip bustline corset with a single strap sets off this dress wonderfully. Again, Nicky's hand drawn textures sing for themselves.

Wow! That's 6 colours in as many days...I might just catch up at this rate :)

52 Week Colour Challenge, Thistle & Pueblo





Thistle & Pueblo...the former fairly easy to do, the latter a real search for garment.

I adore the retro look so it was Artilleri that I reached for when thinking about Thistle, along with a floaty Aoharu shirt.

For Pueblo it was a long inventory search until I happened upon this Azul party dress, myabe it's a bit bright for the chosen colour but it was like rediscovering a forgotten gem.

Moved Again...



My inworld abscence has ended...I have moved to another country yet again. The bloke and I are are now in France and the almighty task of unpacking boxes has started.

My return to SL will be gradual and my blog posts brief for now.

So, it's good to be back and, hopefully, I'll get back into the swing of things fairly quickly. See you out there....

Mesh Musings

Mesh has come and stormed the SL fashion industry. After a reluctance to even try it I agree that for certain designs it is an improvement. And standard sizing, while not perfect, was a good step forward. However I think mesh has some of the same issues as non-mesh. You may not poke through, but the shape isn't necessarily any more "natural."

Having said that, here, without further ado are three mesh and one system/flexi outfit.

Hello Redlips


Lips by Adam N Eve, hair by Clawtooth, Jewelry by Kungler. The skirt is ColdLogic and after that dunno.

Scarf it up!



LeeZu's new mesh Scarf Poncho comes in a pack with three designs, 2 opaque and one lacey see-thru-ish . I'm not sure I've described this correctly. Perhaps it's just best to say that you get a lot for your lindens here. I was fortunate enough to have the fatpack dropped on me so that may explain my confusion:) First the ponchos are gorgeous. The ponchos are in standard sizes, but very wearable over other mesh, unless you choose, as I have to, wear the lacey one by itself. In which case it's very wearable over nothing;)

Otherwise I'm wearing Adam n Eve skin, Exile hair [Kelee, my new go-to style], Maitreya Gold Esprit shoes in Cherry and Maitreya leather leggings in coal. Poses are by [LAP].

Seeking Summer


The weather in the Chicago area is doing its usual flirtation with spring. Now you see it, now you don't. So Culture Shock provided me with a much-desired sneak peek into summer with these goodies from GField and GOS.

I thought GOS' approach to a charity event, in this case for Doctors without Borders, was brilliant. The base Gator Sport Shoes are the charity item and the color add-ons are not. Once you have the shoes you want the colors. Very generous AND very smart.

My outfit is a lesson in matching mesh and system. The frill shorts are mesh and totally winning. The top is system. The sleeves are fine, but the sculpty part on the bottom just didn't look right. Fortunately the system trim is a gorgeous lace that stands on its own.

Otherwise I'm wearing sachi's Samara skin and my hard-to-remove first mesh hair from Clawtooth, available at collabo88.

Poses are from [LAP], alas her last :(

Friday, May 11, 2012

Know your ABCs

A is for Adam n Eve's Samara skin and Audrey dress, a gift from Maitreya,
B is Baiastice and the beautiful new pumps at Culture Shock [which is also a "C"] plus the colorful jumpsuit.
C is for Clawtooth and Bubbles Glamazon hair.

Now you know your ABCs :)

52 Week Colour Challenge, Sea shell



Seashell...interesting colour. I dont have an awful lot of that colour in my inventory so when I came upon ELEMIAH DESIGN Beauty5 dress I was both relieved and delighted. A system dress, with the usual flap attachment that worked suprisingly well. The beauty of this dress lies in the texturing; prettylace with satin ribbon accents. Short and seethrough, this dress is not for the faint hearted.

Whilst rummaging I also happened upon fashionably late limited edition /platform stilettos that matched the dress. Simple, high heeled round toed shoes, ideal!

I also rediscovered a necklace that I had truly lost. A double looped, long affair with wonderful wooden chain work from  [MANDALA]. I thought it complimented the dress quite well.

As seashell was the colour I decided to go beach blond with TRUTH hair and simple PXL skin. I felt a real beach babe dressed like this.

52 Week Colour Challenge, Royal Purple






Royal Purple...I adore this colour.

When I knew which colour was this particular weeks challenge I dived into my inventory. However, I go distracted by a Sn@tch new release, the Bon Bon Dress. Imagine my delight as I remembered that you usually get all the colours in one purchase, well almost. The purple was in the 'dark' set of dresses but the 'pale' set appealed to me more, so what's a girl to do but get both. The Bon Bon is a strapless corset, laced at the back, top that sits above a real sweetie of a skirt. The skirt stands 'proud' at all times thanks the layers of material. Both design and texturing are genius. A versatile dress that can be both contemporary or retro....I couldn't resist going slightly baroque on the pale Bon Bon.

For the challenge, I went Tudor with a set of jewellery from Azuvah that is a little spikey. I love my SLink shoes so went with those, along with my PXL skin and Truth Tanya hair.

However, I wasnt happy with just plain make up so dug out my Kyoot eyeshadow and went and purchase a Black Liquid lipstick in royale matt (how appropriate).

For my flight of fancy Baroque moment, and as an excuse to showcase a paler clolour of the dress, I also purchased stockings from Sn@tch with floppy tops and bows. So pretty. I alos wore some baroque style shoes I picked up years ago and cannot find the creator for them. For my hair I wanted a hint of the powdered wig and chose a booN hair that hints of such. Fleur, who are no more provided the skin, Beck provided the choker, Kyoot the eyeshadow and Black Liquid the lipstick again.

52 Week Colour Challenge, Tea Green




Tea Green...a delicate, pretty colour.

I searched my inventory and came across a recentish purchase from Elate! the Eva Spring Green Dress that I thought may fit the bill. A simple short dress with fantastic texturing, bands of silver 'corset' the dress giving it interest. On top of that a recent visit to one of the Dressing Rooms meant I could ensure the right palette by purchasing glow studios - mint roses hairband accessory, an over the top bloom of incredible detail.

I decided to go blonde with Truths Madelaine hair and simple complexion with my fav PXL skin with a touch of make up from *FishyStrawberry*. My eyes are the usual Miriels and the shoes are SLinks.

The only other item is a Finesmith Xenobia ring with colour and texture change options.

52 Week Colour Challenge, St Patrick Blue



St Patrick Blue....hmmm, another new one on me.

 As the RFL clothes fair was on I went shopping. Luckily I found a few items that I wanted to buy and one of them fitted the colour for this particular week. LeeZu's Glitter Pants in blue were perfect and fun too. High waisted glitter hotpants...says it all really...lol

I teamed it with another purchase, this time from Bliss. The cropped fur galet with furry detached sleeves was another fun piece of clothing to wear. Sexy and fun, it shows off just a little bit too much torso, such that if you stretch upwards you ever so slightly flash the world.

Usual suspects for everything bar my hair. I chose a Naughty cut that I am not even sure is around anymore. It fitted perfectly to the look.

RFL is a good cause that could use help from everyone, the clothes fair, and other similar events, are an easy and painless way to donate funds. Help support the cause so cancer can be beaten.

Two 52 Week Colour Challenges, Dandelion & Aqua




Dandelion...hmmm, no matter what it's called I still don't do yellow.

I went shopping in Decoy and came across these pretty shorts and well placed scarf. The shorts are simple and system, available in a wide range of pretty colours. The scarf is the real star. Clever design and beautful texturing are the key features. Even in 'yellow' I still love it.

Aqua...now there's a colour I adore.

I rooted through my inventory until I came upon a Nicky Ree dress that I had forgotten I had. The DNR Pretty Petal Dress is a floaty summer dress with short sleeves and quite a daring neckline. Again, Nickys hand drawn texturing makes this dress vibrant and alive. It made me think beach so that's where I went to shoot. Worn it a few times since rediscovering it.

I chose AOHARU sandals as their pretty earthstones matched my dress and kept with the beach theme. Also, with matching stones was $GaNKeD$ Arizona necklace. Both these creations pulled the look together.

Skin was PXL, eyes.... and hair Fri.day.

Location was Artilleri

52 Week Colour Challenge, Dark Raspberry

Dark Raspberry...now I recognise that...lol

This colour conjures up decadence and luxury for me so I delved into my recent purchases for a set of undies I remembered buying, again at a fair. *Fi-St*Lingerie - Incanto in red fitted the bill. It can be worn as a bra and knickers set or as a camisole and knickers set, both with and without garters and stockings. Wonderfully textured and beautifully designed I definitely felt decadent.

Gold Slink shoes kept with the decadence feel and I thought I'd keep the hair short with one of Love Souls creations, a square cut bob that is razor sharp and slick. I love my PXL nude skin so kept that on, along with Fishy lip gloss. I also added another recent purchase, a *LpD* MakeUp called*Not a Game* Only Eyes. Gives a fantastic Egyptian princess look.

After all that I was given a prop and pose TV by GM Nikolaidis of Fluke, at the suggestion of my dear friend Samara. What a perfect way to shoot for this challenge. The TV comes with 8 poses and rotates victorian pictures of women. I loved it...thank you Sam and thank you GM.
