LOTD 28/9/2014

A few weeks ago Rowne had such a fantastic sale I could not stay away. I picked up these cuffed leather pants and this beautiful quilted top.

LOTD - 28/9/2014

Kiddo Oh redid her sim for her store Dead Dollz with some really nice spots for photos. Here I am playing with some windlight settings.

another year in the trenches…

No one has any style in this school and I’m smarter than everybody, including the teachers. :b

I’d like to thank Mikunch for designing such great clothing. I’m always so excited when I see the store is entered into an event because I know what they release will be awesomely cool. The cargo pants, top and shoes all come from Mikunch at kustom9. The pants and shoes come with a texture changing hud and the top with 2, one for the sweater and one for the blouse. BLACK RULES!!!

My cute skin, new from Atomic, comes with several eyebrow colours and 2 lipsticks. It’s out at Creation.jp.

Breno released a very nice set of mounted Elk Horns at the Theme Park. Upon touch the chains and cuffs will show or hide. I do wish that I could turn the shadows off but otherwise these are nice horns. πŸ˜‰

DIGS’ Sheyda Rug comes in 6 beautiful colour schemes, with pillows and a blanket. Touching the blanket will let you change the colours. It comes in PG and Adult versions and both are full of single and couple poses.

Whenever you say you love me…

Cyclic Gearz of LVLE has designed some gorgeous wedges for The Family Flea Market at a 50% discount. These elegant wedge pumps come in 8 colours but once the event ends, a full-range of colours will be available at the LVLE main store at regular price. Growing up in the 70’s I’ve always been in love with wedge shoes.

LVLE & Deadwool stylings

I adore this sweater and shorts from Deadwool . I love the bright, bold colours used and the fit of the clothing. More colours of each can be found at summerfest.

Dead Dollz shows at fashion week

Penumbra Spring/Summer Fashion Week runs from May 25th to May 31st. Penumbra has organized a week of fashion shows and Dead Dollz creations are scheduled to walk the catwalk on Thursday, May 29th at 3PM SLT. Dead Dollz will showcase 8 outfits – 4 older pieces and 4 newer pieces. The 4 newer pieces are:

#1 Fragrance is a beautiful gown which is inspired by John Galliano. The top part is fitted like a corset and the skirt billows out to a puffy end and also has a bit of a train in back. I love how the colour starts at dark purple at the top and by the bottom of the dress is light purple.

Dead Dollz @ Penumbra Fashion Week

It’s Worth is a stunning black and white structured gown inspired by Charles Frederick Worth. It reminds me of a sleek and simple architecture piece.

Dead Dollz @ Penumbra Fashion Week

1985 is a pretty dress inspired by Roberto Capucci. The skirt is stiff and hangs lower in the front than the back so a pair of pretty mesh panties in the same pattern as the dress comes with it. 1985 reminds me of a dress a ballerina wears and I love the colour and pattern. I especially love the panties. πŸ˜‰

Dead Dollz @ Penumbra Fashion Fair

Inertia is a quirky dress which is inspired by Hussein Chalayan. This lovely mini dress has a suede-like texture and looks quite normal from the front, but peak at the back and *pow* it’s fully open with jagged edges on the side. Pretty mesh panties come with the dress as well, if not you’d be mooning everyone you walk by. LOL πŸ˜‰

Maimai in spring

Maimai is taking part in this round of Fit for a Princess with the beautiful Melody top. I love the drape of the top and with just a collar and a bit of fabric in back, you get to show off your gorgeous bare back. Melody comes in the standard mesh sizes and comes in 7 gorgeous patterns. This top is definitely a must-have for the modern-day princess for spring and summer.

Poses make out SLives better

Pose makers and animators make our SLives better. If not for them we’d we walking and standing funny and taking photos would be a lot harder. I am very grateful for them and having dabbled a bit in making a few poses, I know how much work goes into the process.

One of my favourite pose stores is fri.day. I still use poses from fri.day today that I bought 2-3 years ago because they are well done and natural looking. Creator Darling Monday has 2 pose packs at the fair called Careless and Monday. I anticipate using these poses a lot in my blogging and photo taking.

fri.day @ Pose fair 2014

fri.day @ Pose fair 2014

Manifeste owner July Raymaker makes really nice poses. This store has become one of my favourites recently because I feel the poses look natural and are smooth; as well, they don’t distort the clothing so are excellent for me to get the best shots when I blog using them. Manifeste has several new poses out and 3 of them are below.

Imeka sits at pose fair!

Imeka is taking part in this years pose fair with a set of cute stands called Charmy and, I believe, is her first set of sits. The sits are very cute and well done. Today while shooting for the blog it came to me what I’ve wanted to say about Imeka poses. They feel and look natural; they don’t make you look stiff and unnatural in photos.

Ilaya and Klepsydra at RAFF

You should check out what Ilaya and Klepsydra have for you at the Rock Attitude Fashion Fair. Ilaya has a very pretty 3/4″ sleeve, lace-pattern sweater which comes in 8 colours. I love the colours used for the tops and for the leopard print skirts as well. The print is just the right size and the shape is my favourite, pencil. I feel the pencil skirt is the sexiest thing a woman can wear to show off her shape. They are my favourite. The skirts also come in 8 colours.

Ilaya @ RAFF

Kelpsydra’s exclusives are the Angie Top and Roxanne Leather Pants, named after two of owner Betty Scorpio’s favourite songs. Both the tops and pants come in 5 matching colours but are sold separately, so you can mix and match or wear the same colour. Both are materials enabled and come with fitted mesh and regular mesh as well, which is a really good idea.
