I woke up to the most awesome compliment today. Teshan2222 Wycliffe contacted me to let me know that Cajsa Lilliehook had chosen me as her favourite blogger for their Faculty Pics over at Style Academy Feed. It was the second time in 24 hours that Cajsa had honored me, the first was by creating her entire set – she DJ’s at The Velvet every Sunday morning – to start with the letter S. I had jokingly said the week before that she could do every letter, and of course that would mean lots of S’s. But to be chosen as one of her favourite bloggers, and the lovely reasons she gave, made me so proud and happy, so thank you so much Cajsa Lilliehook for making me very happy ♥ you can see what she said on the sidebar of the feed, and check out the other lovely bloggers and their picks.
Maitreya has done a huge release over the weekend. The inspiration was “Night Life” and the great items really do make getting ready for a night on the town, easy. I am featuring two of the leather items in the release, the beautiful Calgary clutch, which when I first saw it made me think of a sports car with racing stripes. I really like the insert of contrast leather that allows for a larger mix of colour to your outfit.
The second items are the wonderful leather skirts, they come in used, vivid and dark colour packs, and honestly it would be hard to settle for just one, they all have such great colours in them. I featured one from each pack, and there are other colours I cannot wait to wear in the future. You may notice I paired them all up with older tops, even though there was a top with the release, I wanted to go deeper into my inventory and pull out some lovely classic items. The turtleneck sweater by Celoe, is a beautiful options with the semi highwaisted style of the skirt. Then you have the Bastille top by Maitreya that I like a lot. It is a sculpted item, with the top portion of the top being system, so an easier to edit bottom portion to fit over the skirt. Then the Camden jacket that is open fronted, but was the perfect length to show off the great shading on the bottom of the skirt.
Other great leather items for this post, are the new Roxanne boots by Kitties Lair. The boots are over the knee length, with pointed toes and very high heels. The style has a small zipper insert on the side, that gives them a realistic look, with them needing that to allow your foot to be able to get to the foot of the boots. The leather is very well done, and if looking for some new thigh highs, you really need to demo these.
Zaara has been creating some amazing mesh Jewellery, the Atiriya sets are stunning. The gemstone work is so realistic it is truly amazing, they come in both silver and gold metal options, and the sets include earrings, necklace and bracelets, the necklace also comes with two attachment points for those that don’t like to use ADD all the time.
The two hairstyles worn are by Clawtooth, they are at this months Collabor88 and are really nice medium length styles.
