I’m loving Glam Affair‘s new Amberly II. You can find her at Kustom9, Collabor88 and in-store (here) as a free group gift! From clean-faced to makeup combinations for every taste, she has a wide variety of looks to choose from between the two venues and your free group gift. For more information on the new Glam Affair skins that are out and where to find them click here to check out the Glam Affair official blog.

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.

after-hours

after hours final with jacket

This post has been a long time in the making because real life seems to be keeping me pretty busy. Doesn’t rl know I have a second life to live?? Sheesh!

Poppy is looking business chic with her briefcase and mon tissu glasses. The top and belt are part of GizzA’s new creation, the Nicola Gown. It’s originally a formal gown, as seen here, but you can also wear the pieces separately to create your own unique look.

after hours final taking her hair down

 

Let down your hair, lose the jacket, lose the specs (or not) and this look easily transforms into an after-hours look. Great for role-play 🙂 Or if you want to “sex it up” a bit more you can always go a length or two shorter on your skirt (shown below wearing the mini length). The Maitreya Mesh Pencil skirts come in a variety of lengths and colors to fit anybody’s style.

If you’re looking for well-made applier clothing and accessories you must go to Izzie’s! There you will find several different gloves, stockings, lingerie, manis’ and pedis’…the list goes on and on and continues to grow. If you’re not in-world, Izzie’s creations (along with some killer dollarbies) can also be found on her marketplace store, here!

in protest of fall

atomic fin1

It’s officially fall and today happens to be the first “coolish” day we’ve had where I live. Keep in mind I live in the south-east of The United States where coolish means not excruciatingly hot. (coolish=85ºFarenheit)

Contrary to the title of this post I welcome Fall with open arms..but I really wanted to blog this awesome side cut-out dress that Atomic has at this month’s Collabor88. I regret not getting more side shots because the side cut-outs are really pretty (curse the lag!!!). They give this classic dress a little dash o’ sexy.

Of course, this dress doesn’t have to be confined to summer/spring. You could easily turn it into an autumn look with tights, or boots, a jacket or a shawl…all of the above…etc. etc. It also comes in 4 different color packs. Each dress is considered a color-pack because it includes a hud where you can choose from 3 different colors.

I love Atomic‘s new(ish) Aphrodite Floral headpiece worn in Poppy’s hair. It gives her an ethereal look. The headpiece is unrigged so I was easily able to move it to the opposite side of her head, and it fit perfectly with Magika‘s newest ‘do, No.

She looks like she could be going to a wedding..or maybe even in a wedding. Sighs, always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Hey, that would be a good blog post title..I could have Poppy sitting on a bench, holding the bouquet she had caught at a wedding. She could be all tired and depressed or irritated waiting for the bus or subway. Eh, sounds like a lot of work. Cute thought, though. 🙂

not so nautical

lime and navy at ys&ys fin1

Wow, wherever do I begin? There are so many amazing events, gifts, new products..I never have a problem finding something to blog. The hard part is making all of the choices!

I ventured out of my photo orb for this post. I wanted to play around with some different wind lights, and as much as I tried to make it a “not so nautical look”, I decided it sort of was and went with, drum roll……the beach. These photos were taken on the beautiful sim of YS&YS. While there I picked up the glamorous Viareggio Bag. This bag comes with a hud (bag & hud pictured below) which gives you 20 different color options for the foulard, and 3 different color options for the metal. The hud also allows you to resize your bag as big or as small as you like.

~taxicab to YS&YS~

I picked up The Essenz Bali Wedges (pictured below) back in the June round of L’accessories, and they are now in the Essenz Main store. If you haven’t shopped at this store, or if it’s been a while, I highly recommend that you put it on your “things-to-do list”, NOW. Have a scroll through some of the new items on their Facebook page, here, and see if your heart doesn’t skip a beat…

IKON‘s new Hope Eyes are out and they are giving their group members a free pair! Denim Blue, shown in pic below. These are the first eyes I’ve ever worn that have a hud. They are quite customizable and they even have a light you can turn on or off, dim to bright, if you’d like to have shining eyes.

TP to Ikon. If you’re not already a member of their group, join, for free (omg I know, you don’t see that a lot anymore!), make sure you have on your group tag, and grab your gift!

lime and navy in close fin

To be honest with you, I’ve never really played around with several makeup tattoos all that much. I do wear mascara tattoos nearly all of the time, and a winged eyeliner here and there…I’ve worn lipsticks a few times..so I wear very minimal I’d say.

I’ve recently purchased Glam Affair‘s Romy (not pictured in this post). That will be a post all by itself, talking about her. She’s gorgeous btw, I love her 🙂 . But it looks like with Romy I’ll be doing a lot of makeup mixing and matching because she comes plain and all of the m/u’s are tats or appliers for visage. While binging at Glam Affair I picked up several different makeups and I’m modeling a few of them in this post. (see credits)

seashore soiree

Final Anchor 1
So, after a very long time..dating back before my much discussed (by me) leave of absence, I finally broke down and joined the Mon Tissu Soiree. This is, as many of you know, the mon tissu group that you can join, for a hefty fee, and receive the wall of free gifts in the front of the store. It’s the most I’ve ever paid to join a group, but when I began opening everything it really was like Christmas. You get so many things, some only available to members and not even sold in store. Straw Tote shown above included in mon tissu Soiree gift.

~Click here to get your Soiree on at [mon tissu]~

FINAL 2
Also on my list of things to get in sl, was this beautiful one piece bathing suit; Amarelo Manga’s July Group Gift. All mesh and a variety of sizes to choose from. Be sure and look around while you’re there. I had never shopped there before and was excited to find some beautiful creations.

FINAL 3 GizzA nautical set
When I began accessorizing my swimsuit I couldn’t believe with all of the nautical items that everyone’s been selling at recent events, I didn’t have any..well, nothing new I should say lol. I found this set on marketplace by GizzA Creations..I love the detail in this jewelry. You can buy the pieces individually or in a set with necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring. I’m wearing the earrings but my hair ended up hiding them in the photos. 😦

taking a good look at myself

These shoes, the Kookie Chic Heels, were one of my first “biggie” shoe purchases…I had to have them…even as I was putting them on for this shoot I was oohin’ and ahin’ all over like it was the first time I’d ever seen them. Kookie Lemon is retiring them, plus some other older styles forever..but not without first giving us the opportunity to get them for half off…click here to TP to Kookie!

How quickly our sl favorites become “vintage” items it seems…hell…how quickly we become “vintage”, lol….
So this lotd is some “vintage” sl mixed with some new sl, like The Secret Store’s hot new summer beach shorts.

friendo till the endo

I love Pepper‘s adorable messenger bag…plus they have some awesome jewelry, and there’s also always a good dollarbie to be found. The bag in the pic below is the boy version but they have a nice selection girls bags as well.

The Miel Friendo bracelet and necklace comes with a hud so you can personalize it with your name, or whatever you want it to say. It’s so well made and when I saw that they were both FLF items (last week) I nearly cried..not because they were such a good deal but because I didn’t have 50 linden, lol. Thank you to my awesome friend Dai for the lovely gift…how did you ever know?? It was just what I wanted!…I guess it could have been that IM I left you crying and whining about how I didn’t have the linden for it….:p
