Marukin’s newest set, winter’s breath, is a collection of poses that make beautiful close-ups. (2 poses from winter’s breath set shown above) Available @ Collabor88 for a few more days!

Im totally in love with Truth‘s new Holly. If I weren’t a blogger and had a standard “look”, I would be wearing this hairstyle for a while. Hell, I blog so slowly that I have been wearing this hairstyle for a while, lol. I think in the months to come we’ll be seeing a lot of “lobbed” hair style’s like this. They were very hot on the spring preview runways during fashion week.

My “favorite sl outfits ever” list is getting too long. I may have to start calling it a “category”. Here’s another outfit that made the cut. Believe it or not these pieces are from different creators. They could almost be a set, with their similar rich textures and beautiful ruffles.

Ok, I have to talk about the amazing Dupla Ruffled Leggings from Mutresse. These are NOT your average, everyday leggings and once you try them you will be blown away by the countless looks you are able to come up with.

Mutresse Dupla Leggings. 1 pair of pants, 1000 different looks.
mutresse leggings_poster_700x525

These rigged mesh leggings come with 3 wearable parts; the leggings, the waistband and the ruffles. They also come with a hud that has 24 different  fabric options for each piece, plus a section to modify the sheer parts of the leggings. Read the notecard inside the Leggings folder for easy instructions on modifying the sheer parts. The photo above (snagged from Mutresse’s marketplace store) shows 3 different ways to wear the leggings, plus sample swatches of the 24 different fabric options the hud gives you for each individual piece!

The V.e. Ruffled Bolero is available in a variety of color combinations, and can be purchased on Valentina E.’s marketplace store, or at the main store in-world. Click here to visit Valentina E. on the marketplace. If you’d like to see the available colors and the matching Gaucho, sold separately, the marketplace link has clear pictures that you can zoom in on. I’m thinking I need to pick up a couple more of these boleros. There are so many different ways you can wear it,  it took me forever to decide on just one! If you’d like visit the in-world store, click the link below.

I went a little old-school on some of my accessories and I admit, I’ll probably go bolder with my jewelry next time I wear this. I kept going back to the Zaara pieces though. I love the way the amethyst in the Vanisri necklace complements the purple and teal in the corset and bolero.

The corset is from FINESMITH, a store I found on….guess where? You got it! The Marketplace..I’m telling you when it comes to marketplace I’m as bad as a little old lady on QVC. The Romance Corset is 100% mesh and comes with an attachable hud that gives you 5 different colors to choose from. See color choices and/or visit FINESMITH’s marketplace store, here.

throwback EMERYb

The outfit in this post was one of my last prim purchases I do believe. I love this look. It’s cute and fresh..it has a nice mix of casual, sophisticated and sexy. (nice combination!)  It’s suitable for nearly anywhere in sl, really. I mean..I know there are no rules in sl anyway..if you want to walk through Lelutka dressed as a mesh turd, more power to you!

I’m going to take a wild guess that a lot of the people who are reading this are like myself; Anything you see me blog I would wear in real life. I like to dress Poppy in my style..I’m sure there are the occasional exceptions..one comes to mind but luckily I can’t find the photo anywhere!

I’d like to send a huge Thank You to the creators that have sent me their gorgeous items to blog. If you don’t see your item(s) right away please be patient with me. I work on my blog every chance I get but like I always say…there’s never enough hours in the day.

Today I worked on putting a look together, but I ended up spending a big chunk of time trying to get my inventory under control. I’m curious of some of the ways you ladies (and men :)) have integrated your mesh items into your inventory. Do you make a separate folder for your mesh clothes, or just combine them all together?

Emery has set up a large section downstairs in the front of the store with all of their mesh items. If you haven’t been lately you MUST go check it out. As usual their creations are beautiful!

GREECE is the word

beautiful greek city3

August 8th was Collabor88‘s 3rd birthday, so this past month’s Odyssey-themed collection was one of the biggest and best in their history..and you still have 5 more days to shop! You really don’t want to miss August’s collection, and remember, some of the items are exclusive to the event so when it’s gone it’s gone. (dabs a tear from my eye thinking of Illmatic’s Frenchie hair from a C88 that I missed..i’ve searched high and low for it, even contacting the creator, but I never heard anything, *sniffs*) True, there are some items that are or will be available in their main stores when this collection is taken down IN 5 DAYS, but you won’t get it for the discounted price that Collabor88 offers. For example, Mandala’s Billionaire Watch set is there right now, all colors available, for 40% off of it’s original price. Jus’ sayin’. 😉

In keeping with the Odyssey theme I thought I’d check out a few Greek sims. I found a few that were very beautiful, and I enjoyed getting out of my photo orb and exploring some of the grid. The photos in this post were taken at Myrmidons Empire. You can see by the first picture why I chose it. It’s a great place to explore, I didn’t even get to see all of it, and the whole place is one big photo opp.  I took a record-breaking amount of pictures there, lol.

Greece final

I thought the [whatever] Gladiator Shoes (close-up of front and back pictured below) tied in quite nicely with the whole Greek/Odyssey theme. These are Free to members of the [whatever] group. There is a fee to join, but they have very high quality gifts. When you receive your membership don’t forget to pick up all of their past gifts on a wall in the front of the store.

Essences Ginger Gacha Fin 1

I mentioned this skin, Alex in my last post. I got it at last month’s kustom9 in a Gacha machine. I knew from the picture that I would love it and I do. Even the red is growing on me. I finally found some more Alex skins, though, so I can have my normal coloring back now. I haven’t been able to find Alex in Essences, so I don’t know if it will end up in the main store, or if it will just be a special “event” and/or gift skin. I think it’s so pretty that they will have it in the store eventually… fingers crossed!

To get Alex with your choice of brow color (and all the other bells and whistles) now, you can find 3 beautiful versions at Uber. I’ll feature them in my next post, so stay tuned for that.

If you haven’t heard of Uber, it’s a new monthly themed event owned by Truth Hawks and managed by Miss Kaelyn Alecto. This month’s theme has been Vacation and features creations from 35 of second life’s top designers. Strawberry Singh has a post, here, with a list of the designers and links to pictures of their Uber items.

gingersnap accessories final

I had fun with the accessories in this little “ensemble”. The beaded [glow studio] Mauri earrings and the New Biarritz Beaded Collar from MG look like a set together. You can wear this necklace in a variety of colors. Simply touch (click on) the necklace to bring up an appearance menu. You can find it at faMESHed this month, along with it’s actual matching earrings, and many other irresistable items.

The gladiator sandals are New from Tee*fy and if they look familiar, they were introduced in last month’s collabor88 Safari selection. I haven’t been yet for this month, but I just looked at one of my favorite blogs, Seraphim, and now I’m foaming at the mouth to go. It’s c88‘s 3rd birthday and there are a ton of designers participating..maybe all of them..and then some! My heart is literally pounding I’m so excited to go lol. I don’t think that’s normal is it?? Never mind.

If you’re not familiar with the second life blog Seraphim, you need to be! It is a constant on my bookmark bar. They always posts pictures of every item in more events and gifts than would seem humanly possible. It’s great for checking out event items without dealing with the lag, or during a time when you’re unable to log on to sl.

This post is far longer than I meant for it to be, but I can’t sign off without commenting on the amazing manicure and pedicure appliers for Slink hands and feet from beauty by alaskametro. A huge variety of rich beautiful colors..they make me think of OPI polishes. 10 Linden Each!!!! What?? I couldn’t believe it and I’m going to buy everything she makes before she realizes how much more people would pay for it! Just kidding..well..not really. I’m unable to find an in-world store so I’m assuming the only way to get it is to shop marketplace sl. If you’d like to try before you buy she’s offering the free applier below..a sample of her beautiful work and 7 free colors! Thank you very much Miss Alaska Metropolitan, creator of  alaskametro<3.

FREE Essences Gift!

Essences Free Gift fin 1

A good friend of mine mentioned Essences some time back and I had been wanting to go and check it out, but just hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Then last month’s kustom9 had a Gacha machine from Essences and I fell in love with the picture of the “rare”..Alex was the name of the skin. On my first try I saw that I had gotten an Alex rare..and that’s all I recall seeing so I was so excited and felt so lucky. By the time I got around to putting it on I saw that it was the ginger, and Poppy is a brunette. She may not be one day, but for now I like her as a brunette. The ginger is quite beautiful though, and I am wearing it in world now, hoping to blog it. I’m still on my search for Alex brunette though..

Which was what led me to Essences where I picked up a demo of every one of their skins, I do believe, and found their beautiful free gift, Jamie, which I am wearing in this post. I have on the teeth tattoo that comes with the gift but it’s optional..

~Click here to tp to Essences Skins~

So, after several posts of wearing my Slink physique mesh body I took it off to try on the new Essences gift skin and all of my demos. It is a beautiful body and for taking pictures it makes such a difference if you want a more life-like look..but I have to say taking it off was the equivalent of walking in the house and taking off your bra after a long day at the office. I guess because it’s still so new to me and I just can’t seem to quiet that little voice inside me reminding me of all of the thousands of things in my inventory that I can’t wear with it. I guess at this point I’ll wear it sometimes, but maybe not all the time. Maybe it will be a different story when they come out with mesh bodies with little boobies…they aren’t so bad, but the shadows are still there. Jus’ sayin’.. :p
