I’m so very excited to see Laqroki back in the biz. I’ve worn Laqroki skins for the  majority of my sl. I’m quite taken with the new Glam Affair skin from my last post, but the temptation was too strong, I had to try one of the new Laqroki skins. Their new skin line is called The Fresh and Essential Skins and features Mix and Match; all facial features are on tattoo layers, which makes it possible to create your own unique look!  I haven’t had time to play around with it like I’d like to but I am very curious to mix and match and see what sorts of looks I can come up with. Here are some great examples of the different looks you can create  from the Laqroki Blog. Laqroki has also released body appliers for Slink Mesh Physique, and Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara. (They have appliers for the new Fresh and Essential Skins and the Glow skins from before as well…yay!!!)  The appliers are yours for FREE the first week after release ❤
*(Regular prices will be set 9 Febuary, 1 AM SLT)

Giz Seorn of GizzA Creations’ new Collection, The Frida Inspiration Gown is a true masterpiece. Inspired by the works of  legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, this gown is rich in Mexican culture. Vibrant, eye-catching red and yellow hues throughout, and the skirt adorned with images of two of *Diego Rivera‘s most famous pieces of work, “Mercado de flores” and “The Flower Seller”.  A beautifully detailed rose headpiece and a hand-held lily flower (with and without pose options) complete the look. The lily flower is not shown in this post, but here are a couple of amazing pictures that I found on the blog Urban Legends by Natsumi Kangjon if you’d like to see it. 🙂

*Diego Rivera was a very prominent Mexican artist who was married to Frida Kahlo. If you’re not familiar with his work you should google him…it really is brilliant. Special thanks to Miss Xaqueline Seda for her knowledge on art history and Mexican culture. ❤︎

*Contrary to popular belief castanets are not used in the Flamenco…nor are they Mexican, but Spanish instruments. I really love them with this outfit though. I found these on the marketplace, created by Una Daxter. When the left one is attached the action begins lol. You can hear the click click sounds and your avi does a funny little Flamenco-like dance..GREAT for driving your friends insane! For the pics I copied the right one and just used two rights because she wouldn’t even stay still on the pose stand when I attached the left…she was clickety-clickin’ all over the place.

ellie fin 2

I’ve been hooked on the Glam Affair skin December II lately, but I’ve fallen in love with their newest skin, Ellie. You can find her at several events going on around the grid right now. Check out the Glam Affair blog, here for details. I’m wearing the Ellie featured at Kustom9 in this post. There you have a choice of 6 makeups and the skin-tone choices are Asia and Jamaica.

ellie fin chest dehancer

Glam Affair has released new Maitreya Chest Enhancer/Dehancer Appliers. The shot above shoes the normal Glam Affair skin on the left and the dehancer on the right. It smooths out all the shadows, and if you prefer a smaller chest like I do you will absolutely love it. I didn’t show the one for Cleavage/Enhancement, but they have a picture on their blog that will give you a good idea, here. I didn’t have the dehancer on for the pics in this post (only the one showing the dehancer lol)..this dress called for a little bit of cleavage. Isn’t sl great?

~Click here for a taxicab to Glam Affair to get your new applier!~

One important thing I need to add. Maitreya has updated their Zest Pumps to be worn with their mesh body, Lara. If you’ve purchased any before now you’ll need to go to the redelivery terminal at the Maitreya main store and pick up your updated shoes!

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.

Loulou…NEW from {Essences}

Lulu 1 final

It seems as if it doesn’t take long to re-newb. Well, not for myself anyway. Maybe I just have a blogger’s “need to know NOW” mentality and when I’m away I feel as if I’ve missed out on the greatest deal ever in the history of second life. For example, say you’re away, oh, I don’t know…a few weeks for the holidays and while you’re away the most awesome product ever was released in sl..oh wait a minute. That happened. It seems while I was away the Maitreya Mesh Body was released with all of it’s perks and collaborations with the some of the biggest creators in sl. That will be my next post, but here’s the scoop on it in the meantime, just in case you’ve been under a different rock than myself. I have A LOT to organize and catch up on so as usual, if you’ve sent review copies please be patient. I think I’m just going to go down my inventory and take pictures of things as I organize it. Maybe picking up new releases here and there along the way..you know a girl’s gotta stay “in the know”.

Cary final

This is my second post in a row without wearing my Slink Mesh Physique, and I am ready to put it back on. There are some system clothes that I’ve missed wearing, some of my favorite pieces to layer with. Particularly COCO‘s Bow Shirt.  I’ve seen some beautiful mesh bow shirts but I run into the same problem while trying to layer over them..they come through the top layer of clothing. So for now  there will be occasional posts where I’m not wearing my Slink Physique.

If you’re a purse fanatic like myself you must check out [DDL]. They have a nice selection of purses, satchels, clutches etc. They carry other accessories as well plus some really cute ready to wear items. Join their group, for free I might add, and pick up the beautiful jewelry gifts on the main counter. They have an in-world store and one on the marketplace as well (here). I found that the in-world  store carried a wider selection of their products and more color choices for certain items also. Click here to visit the [DDL] Facebook page for a quick look at   some of Melina Anatine’s beautiful, well-made creations.

Before forking out big bucks on eyeglasses, check the marketplace! I found a plethora of them for 1-5 $L and a handful of really cute freebies as well. I understand sometimes you fall in love with an amazing Gos pair and you don’t have a choice but to spend the L$. But if it’s just a simple, cute pair of glasses you’re searching for, try the T.C. Kawaii Glasses; only 1L$ at the Erovi Marketplace Store, here.

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.
