The Secret Store @ faMESHed

Hey guys. RL has been rough, so I apologize for not blogging consistently. Let me show you some lovely things.

I wish I had time to write wonderful things about all of these pieces, but can we just say they’re awesome and then you go buy it all? I mean… look at it. You want it even without me saying anything at all, don’t you?

Yes, yes you do.

Such Great Heights

So, unless you’ve been living under a rock you may have heard of the Cinema event that is currently running. This event is SO cool. A ton of amazing designers have gotten together to bring you all sorts of movie-inspired items. You can read more about this event here!

I am so excited to to show you one of the hairs from Alice Project that’s available at Cinema. It’s called Willow and it’s absolutely fabulous. It comes in two different parts, the blowing hair and small braids (enlarge photo below to see braids better). This way, you can wear it with or without the braids.  It also has a version that blows straight out, one that is angled up and one that is angled downward. As is the case with all Alice Project hairs, it also has the amazing HUD that allows you to change the textures forever and never run out of awesome options. This hair can appropriately be called epic. I almost never use “epic” because the internet people ruined it for me (yes, you) but this is a valid use of the word. Suck it.

I also need to tell you about this beautiful dress by The Secret Store & NYU. It’s a collaboration piece and I really hope to see more of these because this one came out so great. The dress comes in 10 different colors and can be worn in so many ways. It was originally released for Lazy Sunday but it is now available at regular price.

OH, one last thing I’d like to mention. When going to Cinema, as with all large events, PLEASE PLEASE dress down and remove as many scripts as you can. There IS a script gate at Cinema. I believe the limit is 50 scripts, but less is always better. Wear system clothes, remove your HUDS (you know you don’t need them while shopping) and wear unscripted hair and shoes, etc. I have even heard of people who wear full alphas, remove their AO, and just go invisible. I go, look at everything, grab demos, and take them home to try them on. Then, I go back later to get what I want. When we all do little things like this, it helps EVERYONE to have a better experience and greatly reduces lag. Don’t be a selfish shopper!

Sweet Disposition

I have a secret.

Ok, no I don’t… well, I do have secrets but I’m not telling you those. The secret I’m talking about is The Secret Store, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite stores in SL. This store has both non mesh clothes and an increasing number of mesh items. I love the sweet, fun style and shopping there makes me feel like I am in on some SL fashion secret.

The newest release from The Secret Store is this adorable mesh mini skirt. It comes in seven solids, seven different color versions of the bird print version pictured below, and three other cute fabrics. The bow belt is also its own attachment, so you can wear the skirt with or without!

I also must mention these shoes from Ingenue. Just look at them. So cute. They’re available in tons of colors at Collabor88 this month.

This photo was taken on Cupcake Sim which is seriously one of the cutest places on the grid, and a fabulous place to go shopping because there are about a zillion wonderful stores represented there. That’s where I found this fun ruffly shirt from Kyoko Couture. If you’ve never been there or it’s been a while, you really should go check it out.

So, is your list full enough for now? I hope so! Have fun shopping!

Blogging with Roxi!

In my last post, I was super excited to have a chance to get to know a fellow Plurker and blogger named Shayariel Teardrop for Harvest Denzo‘s Posting With Others blogger challenge. Well, I was so thrilled and flattered to be asked to post with ANOTHER amazing blogger, Roxi Bluewood!

I am always very shy when it comes to fellow bloggers, and I don’t really take much initiative to reach out, especially inworld. You never quite know if they’ll be cool, and I have a little fear of rejection. Some people take their blogger status and use it as an excuse to be a super crazy diva bitch, which I just cannot deal with. Well, let me tell you, Roxi is NOT one of those people. I am SO glad I got the chance to meet her! She is very sweet and also very talented! I’d definitely recommend adding her to your “blogs to read” list. I’m really looking forward to the next time I get to hang out with her! Here are some snapshots of our the time together:

First, some closeups!

^Look at that sweet face!! And below, you can see me wearing one of my new favorite things-  Izzie’s teeth!

The woodsy, blurry backdrop of these next two is The Grounds. I HAD to take Roxi to see one of the prettiest sims on the grid (and home to The Pixel Bean, one of my favorite places to hang!)

By the end of our time together, we were feeling like two peas in a pod and goofing of with silly faces using our Anypose Expression huds.

I almost forgot to show you the cute shoes!!

Thank you for being brave and reaching out, Roxi. I had a lot of fun hanging out and I hope this is the start of a great friendship! (Make sure to check out Roxi’s version here!!)

I usually credit poses, but at time of publication Roxi was not online for me to ask her where some of these were from (and I forgot to ask earlier, oops!) so I will ask asap and update. Sorry!!

I *can* tell you that the  pose from the shoes pose and a couple of the closeups comes from Love Me Brutal cuz that one I brought along!

Popular?

Hey guys! I have been so busy in RL the last week, and I’m super behind on blogging. Fear not, though! This week is “get caught back up” week!

Ok, so let me show you this new release from fri.day! The Kristen.Jacket is closely tailored and has really cute button loop closures. Underneath the jacket, I’m wearing the new Cliquester.Tank, which got me to thinking since the tank colors are all named after cliques. What clique were you in when you were in school?

I also need to tell you about two more things. One, is this realllly neat ring. It’s by *sMoov*, and it is super cool. When you click it, it plays music! There are different versions of the ring in the store on the Marketplace.

Also, these shoes- they’re the RARE color in the Ingenue gatcha at The Arcade. Ready to hate me? I got them on the first try! I was super excited.

Sassy @ Zombie Popcorn (Last Rotation)

Hey guys! So, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is, Zombie Popcorn Brand is in its last rotation. After September 15, ZP will close its doors in SL forever. I know, it’s very sad.

The GOOD news is, it’s not closed YET and there are lots of great things for you to grab before it’s over! One of those great things is this super hot Military Dress by Sassy.

It’s all system clothing layers and prims, which is awesome for those of you who don’t fit or wear mesh! It come in solids and camo (there’s even a pink one!), with a collar up or down option. Check out the Zombie Popcorn Blog to see more item previews and hurry over to ZP before it’s gone!!

Excuse Me

SO when I feel like I’m not sure what to blog or I feel like I keep seeing the same stuff over and over again, I start searching Flickr and blogs to see if there’s anything new out there. Well, you don’t get much newer than a brand new store!

Shawneese Offcourse blogged these adorable dresses from a new store called Podium, and I ran over to grab one for myself! Trouble is, all the colors are adorable, so good luck choosing. The details on this dress are really well done, all the way down to the hook and eye closures. You really have to go demo it and see for yourself.

I am wearing these Tee*fy leggings again because I love them. And these boots, oh these boots… they’re rigged mesh boots from Ingenue. They fit like a dream, like everything else she makes. Go shopping, guys. <3

Vintage Fair Previews #1

Hello, everyone. Hmmm, there was something I was going to tell you about… what was it? Gosh, I completely forget… never mind then.

WAIT! I remember now! It’s almost Vintage Fair time! Vintage Fair will run from August 4-29, and includes over 250 brands. The eras included span from 1920-1980.

Wanna see something pretty from one of my favorite eras?

Ingenue… is… has always been… one of the BEST at quality vintage items. Mesh has not slowed Betty Doyle (creator) down for one second. She has transitioned seamlessly and her items are truly beautiful. This 50s inspired dress, Greta, comes in a TON of colors and patterns. It was all I could do to only buy one.
