The NEW Gogo hair by LeLutka is just beautiful. It has a hat that comes with as a separate attachment, and both looks are just lovely. It is perfect for a shoulder baring dress such as this great one by Toki Doki. I really like the print used on the dress, and the thin belt cinching the waist is a really nice addition to the look.
This dress would be lovely for a date and early evening look, but also with flats such as these great add on shoes by BOOM, the look can be a nice day out combination as well. The Ventrue flats slip right on over your flat rigged mesh feet, and come in cute little shoe boxes and you can get them in three colour packs.
The necklace and ring I am wearing is part of a set that is at My Attic from HandVerk. HandVerk does beautiful mesh accessories, so be sure to check those out, as they come in three colours at My Attic, and will be available in more colours in a regular release afterwards at full price, so grab the three at a bargain while you can. They come with silver and gold options, so they will go with just about everything.
Today was a huge day, first off I moved all of my Flickr Pics over to Ipernity, which is a photo site that Whimsy Winx found when things changed at Flickr. I have a 3 month account and will see how I like it in comparison to Flickr, but I will still post pictures to both locations, as I am part of so many groups and such on Flickr. It was really easy to transfer my pictures, and it also included all the tags, names, and information along with it…so that made things simple.
Then after that I released some New Nail Appliers for FLAIR. Eight new sets with lingerie and latex themes. I am wearing one of the latex sets in this post, because I am really loving the extra long nails. Then after that Sysy, Whimsy, Kavar and I went shopping. A trip to Mandala, then over to Tee*fy and lastly Kavar and I landed at C’est La Vie. There is a sub brand inside of it called ::K:: and I fell instantly in love with this jacket and shorts set. They come in either separates or the combination, and there are three types, denim, leather or this fabulous houndstooth. There is saving on buying the combination, and there are also jackets with an undertank included. I decided to wear this great tank from Somnia underneath it, and it looks great with just the shorts as well.
I have a slight obsession with pinstripe, I think it is a fantastic fabric, and just love what can be done with it now that we have mesh. In the past system layers would distort pinstripe that it often just was not a good look, but now we can revel in it. The NEW Portan bustier/corset top from SySy’s just hit the store, and it comes in many delicious colours. There are also amazing brights colours and the lemon will be my favourite especially with the upcoming sunnier SL days…while I freeze my buns off Down Under.
Every year I declare to myself I wont follow the seasons in SL that I will try and stick to my own, so that I can at least feel snuggly and warm, but there are always such beautiful creations released, there is no way that can ever happen. It is rough during our summer though, sweating and bundling up my avatar in snow boots and parkas lol. While summer in SL can fool me into feeling warmer, winters in SL just makes it hotter.
First off, a reminder that Hair Fair Bloggers Day Applications are now up and running…so HERE is the information post on that. The application is just for Bloggers Day entry, there are no bloggers packs sent through the group or anything like that, it is just so that you can get all the info and lay of the land in advance so that your readers can know about the event, and come and help Hair Fair 2013 help Wigs for Kids.
Clouds are an amazing thing to watch, even in Second Life I find myself staring at them for a while just watching them move so beautifully across the sky. It gives us this feeling of reality in a virtual world, and the other day I liked the colours of the sky so much I grabbed a snapshot, that I ended up using as my background for todays post.
I have been absent the last few days, spending a little time fixing some RL stuff, and it has been relaxing. I was still able to attend to What’s New SL stuff and The Deck…but it gave me a chance to get my mind in order for the upcoming months of Hair Fair preparation. It is definitely an exciting time of the year, and there are so many great events going on now, as well as in preparation for the time before that. I heard about SummerFest yesterday and that looks like an awesome event. If you haven’t heard of it, I suggest if you are a store you jump on the chance to be involved, you can find the application for that HERE.
Also don’t forget you have Collabor88 going on, as well as FaMESHed‘s 1st Birthday celebration. That is a lot of great stuff to see and do. Today though my post is about items not at events. The other day I was looking at my UnBra skins folder and was wondering what had happened to that store, well sure enough if you think hard enough, things happen. The creator of UnBra skins has released two ( only one shown today) new skins, and not only do they have great make ups, and cleavage options etc, but they are all compatible with Tangos and also Slink avatar enhanced hands and feet appliers are available. So with a new release comes big things…
I was really excited to hear that Ploom has finished their hands and feet appliers for the Slink Avatar Enhanced system. So excited I pretty much steamrolled right over Helyanwe to get my hands on them…and then on my hands. They will be released in the store tomorrow, but I couldn’t wait, because she did a great job on them, and I really like her latest Gia skin a lot.
For those who use search in inventory to find things, you will know that searching RING is a pain in the bum, because you get a billion listings for earrings. I decided to test out a few options tonight and I found that in firestorm ( so not really sure if this works in others ) that if you type + Ring you get ONLY rings…this has made me all sorts of happy, so I really hope that helps others too.
This session of My Attic at The Deck is closing at midnight tonight. So this is your last chance to get all these great items at the 95L price range. The theme was Change, and this Chevron dress with its great shape and lovely texturing, brings thoughts of change with the motion of the great chevron print. I love chevron and with it being an inserted panel style, it really pops. The dress also has appliers options, which is a hard task with upper mesh items, but DCNY has pulled it off incredibly well. The dress comes with and without belt options, and the belts are black or brown…very cool.
League has been working on this NEW skin for the past few months. I did get a sneak peak a month or so ago and have been waiting excitedly for its release ever since. The full release is not going to be this week, but a partial “Special Edition” preview will be, and the skin is just marvelous. There is often a collective sigh when it comes to good black skins being more available on the grid, and there are mixed reactions when they are made available, it is a hard thing to get right, so many steer clear of them. Thankfully League hasn’t. Aria comes in three tones, and has the cleavage layers, nail covers, hairbases, including an afro version base – shown in the first pic. I can see this skin not only being great for girls that have been looking for a good black skin, as well as designers who want to add a little diversity to their vendor ads. There is an Aria shape, but I went with mine, so that you can see how it works on features you are familiar with…definitely take her for a spin yourself, because she is beautiful. The new tones will also have appliers available to purchase for SLink hands and feet, as well as lolas, so look for those in the appliers section when the release is announced….
Lacuna is a new store, and their second release is part of this session of My Attic @ The Deck. The Diametric skirts are pure bliss, not only to wear, but to look at, they elongate the body, and the texturing and colours used are superb. The bandeau tops that are included as a special My Attic option, come in the two colours used in the skirt, so its an incredible Must Have item. The changing of tops can completely change the mood of each look, and I love the resort wear simplicity of the whole look. It also gave me a chance to show off the new skin Nina by LoOmi, not exactly new new this week, but one of the latest releases by the brand, and I not only love the body, and sexy as tummy…but the face is a joy.
I had no idea it has been so many days since I have blogged, and I almost forgot how I do things layout wise. I have been overly addicted to making nails for the NEW Avatar Enhanced appliers for the Slink hands and feet, and I think when you are on a creative roll, you have to go with it. It is funny setting up a Flairstore on my own sim, I always feel like I am wasting prims when using them for myself. The nails have been great fun, and I have even set out a Gift set, so I hope you will drop by for a visit and grab those, it is a great way to test the system, and they all come with both feet and hands huds.
