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.

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)!

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!

New Girl Poses @ Bounce This

Good morning! I have something exciting to show you! The oh-so-talented blogger and pose maker Bouncer Criss has released a new girl pose pack. As a blogger, I am CONSTANTLY on the hunt for great poses, and let me tell you- I like these a lot. Now, I might be a tiny bit biased because he asked me to pose for the ad photos, but as I was, I was going “aww” and “ooh” cuz I really really like them.

You can go try them out  inworld or just grab them on Marketplace! Six poses PLUS mirrors and they’re only 100L. You can’t beat that.

Here is a photo I took using one of these great new poses: 

You know you can never have too many awesome poses, so go pick them up today! Now! Go!

Prism Furniture @ Summer Harvest Hunt

Hey guys! I hope you guys have gotten to start the Summer Harvest Hunt! In case you aren’t aware, the hunt started yesterday (September 1st) and it goes until September 21st! Here is another awesome piece you can pick up on the hunt. It’s a hanging porch swing, loaded with 11 single poses. I am in love with the vines and fall leaves woven around the top. This is a perfect place to sit and sip some tea and watch the leaves change.

These Boots

So, these Monso boots came out a while ago. I’m totally late to the party, but I really do like them a lot. Not only are they realllly nicely made, they also have this nifty hud that allows you to change the texture of different parts of the boots! The different textures are really adorable, too.

 

Go demo them and play with the hud and see how empty your SL has been without them!
