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!

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.)

When the dust settles…

Super quick post today, as Saturdays are almost always busy busy busy in RL for me…

Foppish! Have you heard of it? I hadn’t until I was stalking, er… browsing people’s photos on Flickr and came across a few with these adorable sweaters. I had to go check the store out, obviously, because… I might possibly be addicted to sweaters. This version with the skulls is actually a group gift and the group is free to join, SO… no excuse, really. Go grab one. There are a couple other patterns available, as well, and they are darling so make sure you check those out, too. The whole store is very very cute.

The only thing I noticed when trying things on was that their sizes run a little different than Standard Size, but a few little mods or trying a different size isn’t really a big deal to me when the clothes are this cute. I usually wear a Standard XS and this jacket fits me perfectly in size XXS.

Have a great weekend!

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

Secrets

I actually went shopping. At stores. I have been caught up in so many events, it’s been a while since I went to actual stores!

I hopped over to the Secret Store and found this adorable little mesh dress. It comes in a bunch of patterns, but I had to have the lacy one. I have an affinity for lace. These Tee*fy leggings are at The Dressing Room Blue right now. They’re on clothing layers, so they fit perfectly inside these [elikatira] boots. This Fashionably Dead hair was actually released at Hair Fair, but I didn’t have anything it would go with until now. I’m glad I finally do, because I have been eyeing this hair for a long time.
