Happy Thanksgiving & Some Newness

Darlings, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. If you’re not from the U.S., I hope you have a lovely day as well!  This is probably my honest-to-goodness favorite holiday. No presents, no hype, just family and food and lots of love and time for reflection on the year and all we have to be truly thankful for. I am humbled and amazed by all that I have to be thankful for. I couldn’t even list it all if I wanted to. I do want to say to you, though- thank you. Thank you for listening to my ramblings, looking at my stuff, and just spending some time to let me into your life a little. I have so much fun putting together looks and writing my silly little posts, and it makes me happy to know that there’s someone else out there who gets some enjoyment from it, too. So, thanks for letting me share my stuff with you. <3

ON TO THE NEWNESS!

The Secret Store and Nyu have collaborated AGAIN and this time, they bring us this lovely Camille Dress! I really adore the lace collar on this. The shape of it is so cool. OK, and this hair. It’s called Joy, and it’s Wasabi Pills’ newest release. It is very aptly named, as it truly does bring joy to my pixel noggin. There is also a bang-less (fringe-less?) version of this hair, called Joy 2. 

I’m going to leave this post short because I have lots of turkey and cranberries to gobble! Have a lovely Thanksgiving, everyone!

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!

Wicked

Halloween is almost here and there are so many wonderful, dark, scary things out right now! Glam Affair has released a line of “The Dark Side” skins based on Roza and Ginny. I really love this one, called Roza 04. The winged liner and gorgeous red lips reminded me of a not-so-innocent Snow White. What if, instead of killing her, the poison apple had brought out her dark side?

 

This hair From The Alice Project is pure genius. One of my favorite things about Alice Project (besides the HUD that allows you to change the texture every way you can imagine) is that she always makes such unique styles. This hair is very rockabilly. It’s available now at Zodiac for the Scorpio cycle!

The prop and pose are from Love Me Brutal,and you can get it for 1L here on Marketplace. No, that is not a typo.  It actually comes with the chaise with apples, then the chaise alone and the apples alone. The chaise alone has no poses in it but it’s copy/mod. The one linked with apples has the poses. I was a little confused by that at first.

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.

Some music to make you smile:

Cracked Mirror @ Cinema

So, yesterday I showed you one of the fabulous items available at Cinema, and today I will show you another.

Cracked Mirror has released these amazingly sexy mesh corsets and mesh ruffled knickers for Cinema. They fit perfectly and I don’t know about you, but having ruffles on my butt makes me feel extra fancy.

 

The texture and detail on these pieces is really wonderful. You can almost tell what they’d feel like to touch the laces and the ruffles and the stitching. They come in lots of great colors, so make sure to grab a few (and while you’re at it, grab someone to show them off for)!

SO, hopefully you’re aware that faMESHed has started its’ new round…? Well, if not, now you are.

For faMESHed, Cracked Mirror released this really cute track outfit. My good friend Maci Restless and I decided to put our new outfits to good use and take a power walk around The Grounds.
