Storybook Saturday, Challenge 1

Today I came across the Storybook Saturday challenge and decided I was going to do this. I’ve missed this passed Saturday but did it today anyway. The theme changes each week and this past Saturday it was Galactic Empire. It was the excuse I needed to finally buy the stunning suit and boots from Gallactic and the cute half-top from R3volt. I went back to visit the Doomed Shipped to take the photos.

Most people probably think Star Wars with that theme; just look at me as one of the many people fighting for the rebel alliance. 😉

Sakide at love Donna Flora event

If you haven’t guessed by now, I am an official blogger for Sakide. I am actually ecstatic to be her official blogger because she is so unique on the concepts of clothing she creates.

As some of you may know, one of a beloved designers in SL has come across some hard times. The designer never asked for help but the citizens of SL are coming to her aide. Designers have donated items for 100% to 50% donation. Alot of these creations are new or special versions.

Sakide has the lovely Lace Bonbon Dress set at 100%. As with many of her mesh items it comes with a hud that allows you to change the texture of your dress to your desired color. I loved how form fitting and sexy the dress is, the texture work is flawless.

She is also offering these lovely Mosaic Dresses in Black and White. Each version comes in a variety of colors within each hud. These items are at 75% donation each. I love the flouncy skirt bottoms on the dress and the sweetheart neckline.

More shoey goodness from Dilly Dolls

This time around Oriana Kuhr, from Dilly Dolls, has released a pair of pumps that you need slink feet to wear. They come in a lights package and a darks package, with a hud for each and a slew of colours to choose. They really are cute as you can see below.

I paired it with a new dress I picked up at TDR from Drift. I love Drift’s mesh clothing line; they fit me so well I rarely have to demo their items. The ring and necklace I picked up quite awhile ago from je suis and I love this new sexy hair from ^;^CaTwA^;^.

I stopped by the “Love Donna Flora” event and picked up a few items, including this beautiful skin from Glam Affair. I’m sure most of you have read about Squinternet Larnia’s condition and some of her friends decided to have an event to help. That’s the great thing about SL I’ve found, people are always willing to help others. Anyway you should drop by, there’s some great stuff there.

Dilly Dolls and Marshmallows…sounds good

Oriana Kuhr, from Dilly Dolls, has designed an adorable pair of platform sandals. They come in several colours and patterns AND you must wear Slink feet in order to wear the shoes. I remember having a pair of sandals like these when I was a teenager. They are the perfect summer shoe, too bad in RL you don’t have a hud to change colours. haha 😉 The sandals come in pastels, dark colours, prints, stripes and gingham with a hud of several colours for each. The sandal can be all one colour or a combination of 2, so you get several looks for each set of sandals.

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a new to me store called Marshmallows. As soon as I walked in I fell in love with owner Romy Dash’s sense of style. Here I’ve paired these summery capri pants with a wonderfully textured crop top. All of her clothing line is mesh and she designs for both men and women. If you’ve not visited yet you really do need to drop in.

Avatar Bizarre

If you haven’t heard of this wonderful store called Avatar Bizarre, they you truly are living under a rock. The creations are all original mesh created by Sredni Eel. His creations range from costumes to everyday wear. He mostly specialized in male apparel but he occasionally dabbles in woman fashion. I was given the opportunity to blog a couple of his past releases and let me tell you they are amazing in texture and quality.

Up first is what I like to call my Fc*k Authority outfits. Traditional punk outfits made in mesh and available in a series of colors. Since I tend to gravitate to certain colors I was given those I would wear the most. And omg I update my male av for you guys again. Sacred Skins is back and they have a brand new skin that are available at The Boutique. I loved how it went so well with my punk look. So the outfits feature mesh tank tops and mesh plaid/striped punk pants.
Avatar Bizarre
I put this look together while listening to Pennywise “F- Authority”

Next up is traditional outfits worn by matadors in Spain. I saw the outfit and instantly fell in love with the texture work. The accuracy of this outfit was amazing and it brought back memories of old songs my mom listened to when I was younger. The outfit is called a “Traje de Luces” and like I said it is normally worn in matador rings. In other cultures there are other types of Trajes so it was nice to see how Spain influenced the fashion in so many spanish speaking countries.

Hair Fair 2013 – My last huge post

Just so you are aware, Hair Fair is closing soon. So if you haven’t dropped in yet then you can probably get these styles at the mainstores later. But we really do recommend you buy them at Hair Fair since the charity is for purchasing wigs for children who have been stricken with several types of diseases and their treatments have caused them to lose their hair.

So really these are some of the favorite ones I picked up. I figured I’ll time out the posts a little better in the future but this will be another pic heavy post. Please don’t kill me. I tried really hard to take greqt quality pictures. I’m going to post the outfit details below each pic and at the end of the post I’ll post the items that are worn constantly thru all of the photos.

I actually was excited to see Olive venture into a new area of creation. I swear she is so talented and her selections for Hair Fair were so KAWAII. Now what I want to talk about is the spectacular hair from Discord Designs. I swear this woman can make dreads look sexy. I loved the styles I picked up and I had to snag the freebie. Last but not least my all-time favorite store [GAUZE], I love the creativity that Yukio puts in all of her creations. If you look at the picture I made sure to wear as much [GAUZE] products as possible. Her stuff isn’t just for the Fantasy/RP types but can be appreciated by everyone. I just happen to favor more fantasy looks.

So what are you waiting for? Go to Hair Fair NOW!

Summer Heat

I live on the east coast of Canada and it’s been so frigging hot here the past two weeks, you hardly want to wear any clothes. If I do have to go out, Eyelure has come out with a little summer dress in 2 versions, plain and an aztec pattern. It’s perfect for those days or nights when you want to wear something cooler but still look great.

A few of my favorite things….

I know you have heard that hair officially opened this past Saturday, and I was lucky enough to get a walk-thru before the official opening. I didn’t realize there were so many hair creators and new ones I had only known for their other creations in SL.

So really these are some of the favorite ones I picked up. I figured I’ll time out the posts a little better in the future but this will be another pic heavy post. Please don’t kill me. I tried really hard to take greqt quality pictures. I’m going to post the outfit details below each pic and at the end of the post I’ll post the items that are worn constantly thru all of the photos.

Draconic Kiss @ Genre

So once again Phire dragged my bum to go shopping at the Genre event. She is kinda bossy but I like that about her. I already knew what I wanted to get before we got there, the “Cotton Candy” dress by Draconic Kiss. While I was there I bumped in to my beautiful friend Airedine, of Adore & Abhor, and squeed at the purple Lolita dress she had out and I bought it also. Since Phire decided to wear Airedine’s dress for the post I chose Draconic’s. What I love about Draconic’s dress is the unique mesh work and the beautiful illustrations on the skirt. Lovely little cotton candy drawings. The dress was extremely affordable and you can wear several color options, that are changeable via a hud.
DraconicKiss-Genre

I opted to wear the mint version. The socks are available separately but they come with underwear that can be worn under the skirt as a pants layer. For the Lolita who would like to protect their image. I am wearing flats by lassitude & ennui, I went super crazy on her gacha and I got all zeee colors. These are my go-to flats to wear with Lolita Dresses. I am also wearing a couple items available at Genre. The hair is by Helena Stringer, I loved the little candy pieces in the hair and the bi-color option, there are several hair options to choose from but the teal and pink was my favorite. I am also wearing Doll Eyes by Voshie Paine, they are absolutely stunning. I fell in love with the blue eyes as soon as I saw them.
Stringer-Genre

I know Phire likes to say I’m lazy, and well yeah that’s the truth. I take pictures and just let it sit in my flickr until I feel like blogging it. Which is not necessarily a great thing if you are a blogger. So I’m trying to be more proactive. Here we are getting all jiggy with ourselves. She tried to grab my bum bum but I told her that was only reserved for Humpday for the surprise buttsecks.
Genre July

Here is where I told her she was a “Ero Lolita”, see she is claiming I called her a hussy. But alas this woman knows nothing about lolita fashion and I had to edumacate her. The shoes made her a “Ero Lolita” and she got all flustered and blogged that I called her a hussy. I’m not going to define what a Ero Lolita is because if you don’t know then you really don’t know much about Lolita Fashion 😛
Genre July

So apparently when we were in this pose something screwy happened with my avatar and my head turned all the way around like in Exorcist LOL and well if there was photographic proof I would show you. So I recommend you check out the Genre Event, the theme changes monthly so you never know what items you can snag. This month’s theme is “Lolita” and there are a ton of great items. We just highlighted a few so go and check it out HERE.

I scared Phire

My friend Lola has graciously let me live on her parcel and gave me a home as well. Phire Zuhra, a friend of Lola’s, also lives there too and well, her door was open so I decided to take a peek inside. Phire has wonderful style. While I took a pic, she popped in so I scuttled by her out the door apologizing and I guess I scared her LOL. She just saw a streak run past her hahaha 😉 Sorry Phire!

I love this dress!!! The poppy is my favourite flower and the texturing is gorgeously done. I also love the way it fits. It’s from LoQ and can be picked up at The Dressing Room.

Hair is from Baiastice and can be found at the Hair Fair and shoes from Boom and skin from Glam Affair, both currently at Collab88.
