Baby It’s Cold Outside

GUYS! I am sorry for neglecting you so. My RL has been just NUTS lately. I think it’s finally getting back to normal again, so… let’s see if I can get back to blogging, eh?

Today’s look is a simple, fun one. I ran through Collabor88 and faMESHed and popped around to a few stores I love and threw this one together. This is an outfit I’m going to save and wear every time I feel like casual and fun are in order.   I am severely underdressed for the chilly weather at Izzie’s sim, and my nose and cheeks seem to have turned rosy! This adorable Glam Affair skin is available at Collabor88.

The pose is also at Collabor88, part of the pack by Marukin.

My sweater is by e! and can be found at faMESHed.

The jeans, hair and shoes are not new releases, but wonderful and adorable all the same.

Oh, and can we take a second to notice that I’m seriously addicted to the dips at Magika? I may need to find a 12 step program.

One last thing- check out these IKON Eternal Eyes. They’re so lovely and clear… I keep camming myself and getting a little hypnotized. 

Ready? Set. SHOP!

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.

The Costume Ball

Well, guys, RL has dictated that I spend almost zero time in SL the last few days, but I sneaked over here really quickly to show you these pretty things!

The Costume Ball, presented my The Ego Co., is open and in full swing and you can find SO MANY really cool things there. You must go. There are sexy costumes, creepy eyes, fabulous poses and skins and hair… Every one of the designers really outdid themselves.

This sexy costume is by Cracked Mirror and was made especially for The Costume Ball. You can wear it with or without the tail, and it comes with horns and a pitchfork! It’s the perfect costume to wear when you want to cause some Halloween mischief.

The skin I’m wearing is by Pink Fuel, and it’s part of the Femme Fatale Skins pack available at The Costume Ball. You may even catch me sporting this skin after Halloween!

This pose is by Purple Poses and is from a pack that is available at… you guessed it… The Costume Ball!

This hair is a new release from Magika, and it is NOT from The Costume Ball. I threw you off there, didn’t I? It is simply an adorable new release. You can’t tell in the photo, but it actually has a cute bandanna tied around the hair like a headband. The hair and bandanna are both color change!

Ok, now I’m gonna run back to doing my RL stuff and you’re gonna run over to The Costume Ball! If you want to see more item previews, be sure to check out The Ego Co. blog!

Sweet Like…

Hey! I want to show you the outfit I was running around in last night. I feel like a trip to the ice cream shop rolled in cotton candy, and I like it! I love to play with colors, especially in SL.

I’ve told you a couple times about this new Magika hair and how I bought the dips pack and how much I love it… I wanted to show you one of the great color combos!  This particular one reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream. YUM!

I wore the dark version of Roza Basic by Glam Affair so that my brows matched my roots. Someone recently commented that they felt like the darker version wasn’t  as soft as the blonde version, but I don’t think that’s fully accurate. I think the tone you wear, your facial features, and the clothes and hair you pair it with lend more to the “harshness”of your look. The dark brows are a really nice shade of brown, and not too dark at all, in my opinion.

The necklace I’m wearing is by LaGyo and is available at Collabor88 this month. It has a texture change menu with eight color options for the plumes AND four different metal options, so it’s like… thirty-two necklaces in one!

This tank is from Tee*fy, and the pants are from The Secret Store. I told you about the pants yesterday, and I’m pretty sure I’ve blogged a different color of this tank in the past. I love them. I wear them. They are now staples in my wardrobe.

Please direct your attention to these shoes. Try not to drool. Too late, you say? I understand. These shoes are probably the most adorable things in my inventory. They’re the Lovable Pumps  from The Secret Store, and I’d call that name exactly accurate. They are very lovable. They come in different pastels, brights, browns, and some “extras,” which have patterns.  Now wipe your mouth and go grab a pair or five.

My pose is part of the “It’s Casual” pack at Exposeur. The pack has 5 poses WITH mirrors. I wish all pose makers did mirrors. It really helps to have them for those times when you love a pose but your hair or a clothing item doesn’t work, but would work perfectly if the pose was only facing the other way. Yay for mirrors!

Ok, now go shopping!

SO Much Newness!

Hey guys! I have some fun stuff to show you! How about I start at the top and work my way down?

In my last post, I mentioned that Magika had released new hairs. This is another of those fantastic hairs, called Yesterday. As with the other hair, i got the dips pack. It’s so fun to play with the colors and see what combinations go with different outfits!

Next, check out this lovely skin. This is Roza Basic by Glam affair. I know a ton of people have been really hoping that this skin would be released in a full pack after a few versions had been at events such as Collabor88. Roza Basic comes in 6 tones and each tone has a clean version as well as four makeup options. I am wearing the Europa tone which is one step lighter than the America tone I had been wearing of Lilith. I feel like it’s softer and more appropriate for fall since my RL summer tan is fading and I suppose my SL one should, too. These R.icielli freckles really work well with this tone and add to the soft look as well. If you’re curious about the other tones for Roza Basic, Willow Zander did a great post showing them all and the included makeups, so go check it out!

On to the rest of the outfit:

How many more warm days will we have left to wear fun floral tops before they have to get packed away in favor of warmer clothes? It’s wonderful that the weather is still warm enough in RL for me to not feel weird wearing short sleeves in SL. Soon enough, it’ll be all sweaters and jackets and long underwear.  This is an older top from The Secret Store and is made of system clothing layers and sculpts, but since it’s done well I am happy to continue wearing it! You also can’t beat the ability to re-position something or re-size it here or there. That is one area rigged mesh has a disadvantage in.

Speaking of rigged mesh, however, the advantage is in the smooth, well fitting, beautifully textured items such as these NEW Rise Skinny Jeans (also from The Secret Store). They come in blue denim, which I’m sporting here, light denim, grey denim and black denim. Also available are fun bright colors: apricot, mint, lavender, and candy!

My shoes are from Tee*fy. It was seriously hard to decide which color to buy because every version of these is adorable. I might end up going back and getting the fatpack, or at least one or two of the other colors.

The pose is another from the [flambe] pack by Marukin, available at Collabor88.

OH! Are you aware of Tee*fy and LaViere being in a temporary location? They’re actually right next to The Secret Store right now. Here is a good spot in between all stores! (If you tp and don’t see the stores there, remember: temporary. Search is your friend.)

Stuck on You

Do you ever put an outfit together and never want to take it off? It just feels right. For me, this outfit is just the right amount of sexy and classy and fun. I have seriously been wearing it inworld for like 4 days now, which is insane for me. I usually change clothes multiple times a day.

You may have noticed from the past few posts that I have changed skins.  I’ve been kind of in a funk lately, and what better way to break a funk than by making a dramatic change!? I have always really like Mother Goose’s skins but I’d never been quite sure if I could pull one off. All that changed when I demo’d this skin. I fell in love instantly. It is very different from my usual, but still feels like me. I am very happy with it. The only thing I’d mention on the negative side is that some of the body detail is not my favorite, like the hipbones are a little too defined and the shading on the butt is a little odd, but I’m not naked in SL enough for that to deter me. The face and collarbone are usually the big selling points for me in a skin, and this one really hits the mark. I added R.icielli’s freckles over top to complete the look and I cannot stop camming myself. Yeah, I’m one of those.

On to the hair. Magika has released three, yes THREE gorgeous new hairs. They are called Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. I got the dipped color palette for the first time and ugh, I cannot tell you how much I love them without sounding like a complete crazy person. If you can try these hairs on and not want to buy every single one, I don’t even know what to say to you.

I found these jeans while on Marketplace, searching for a pair of mesh skinny jeans that I don’t see everyone and their mother wearing. I had never heard of Etchaflesh, but I hopped over to the inworld store and demo’d. I really really like these jeans a lot. They fit great, the texture is really well done, and my ass looks fabulous. What more could you want?

Last but certainly not least, I almost always pick up the Marukin pose packs at Collabor88, and if you do any type of SL photography, you should too. The poses are always really nice, and since it’s Collabor88, they’re discounted!

See why I never want to take this off? Thank goodness you can’t smell your av in SL because mine might be a little ripe.

Mon Tissu Blogger Search- My Entry

Hey! So, I know I already posted today, but this is a special post! Mon Tissu is having a blogger search and I’ve decided to throw my hat into the ring. I mean, why not give it a go? The possibility of blogging for one of my favorite stores on the grid narrowly outweighs my feelings of insecurity and my nerves… and… is it hot in here?

ANYWAYS, the rules are that I have to take a photo and write a paragraph, similar to my normal blog posts. So, I’ll ramble a little then show you what I chose to wear, ok? Ok!

Can you believe that just last year around this time, mesh was barely being used? The jacket and scarf I am wearing are beautiful and cozy but completely sculpty attachments and clothing layers. For you mesh holdouts, I’m not too worried about you guys finding lovely fall and winter wear. While Mon Tissu’s mesh offerings are AMAZING, their earlier items are just as beautiful and I’m not at all ashamed to run around in non-mesh items when they’re this high quality. The shoes I’m wearing ARE mesh, but not rigged. This means you can still reposition them and all that, they’re just much more detailed than, say, sculpted prims.

You’ve maybe seen me blog these Jane jeans 1000 times, and they *are* mesh, and wonderful and they fit perfectly, and… just go fatpack them, ok?

My earlier post photo was taken at Izzie’s and so is this one. I cannot stay away from this sim right now. Go check it out. If you see me there, say, “Hi!”

Speaking of fall, check out this sim I’m on. This fall paradise is the home of Izzie’s! This is actually not the first time I’ve blogged about her sim.

Anyways, the sim looks amazing and not only can you take some lovely photos there, but also make sure to pop in and shop at the store! Izzie’s has clothes, nails, skins, eyes, teeth, poses… you really must go see.
