Laced and Winxboxed

The hair was sneak peaked, and I declared it MINE! I IM’d Whimsy and told her, you can have Cristal but Bambi is MINE. She accepted it, she will be allowed to wear it occasionally, but it is MINE. Ashia though, she declared I was not allowed to own a hairstyle, pfft…goes away for a year and comes back all Bossy and stuff. She also came back and has been taking some blog pics, you can see the great Ashia Tomsen back in action HERE. It is still going to be mine, she can just delude herself for a day or so. Izzie’s has done all of us Slink Physique and Visage wearers a treat this week, with the release of Jolie lingerie appliers, some great stockings, and more wonderful eyeshadow options for the heads, so this is certainly exciting for all the lovers of the Maci skin by Izzie’s that she did with the appliers. I hope to see her do more in the future, so that there is more range.

I didn’t get a chance to blog in the latest Winxbox we did for the just closed My Attic, but I feel that I will use this in the future a lot. I actually used it with a lovely pose by oOo, so the box is pure backdrop in this case.

Up Up and Away

Upshaw

Only a couple of days left of My Attic, and a week of C88 until its next session, so lots of shopping still to catch up on if you haven’t yet.  Nantra did these amazing Chicago inspired poses for this round of My Attic, and this one was just perfection when it came to showing the beauty of this style by Tableau Vivant, that is a stunning Beehive do called Upshaw. This whole look is very 60’s Poetry Cafe look, and I just love it, it reminds me of pictures I have of my Mum from that time, and I think her dresses were even shorter.

The sunglasses and earrings are fantastic Yummy pieces, and the dress is a perfect sweater dress by Lacuna. the knit in this dress is inspired, and I love the puffy sleeves and tighter wrist fit that it has. I can see wearing some great leggings with this dress, or barelegged as I am now, seeing as for me the weather is getting hotter not cooler. The shoes are by Essenz and also a My Attic item, the strap work is beautiful, and they come in great colours you are going to have fun picking, or just grab them all.

I was channeling my inner Sofia when doing this post, and sure enough when I am offline she pops in for a visit for the first time in months BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I took the pics on Sunday, so I was definitely sending her telepathic messages of missing her for sure. She loved looks like this one, and we loved her changing 512 times a day in front of us :). The sweater and shirt got me started on the look, it is soft, delightful and fits my body perfectly. It looks great with all sorts of items of clothing, skinny jeans, shorts like this and even skirts, whatever takes your fancy. It has a hud for texture change, but this was all win for me.

The piled up high bun is the style of hair that made it all Sofia for me, definitely her do, and by a creator she really likes too, Lamb. It is at C88 this round, and I just love the hair scrunchie wrist attachment, because what girl didn’t have one of those permanently attached to theirs during the 80’s and into the 90’s. I would often wake up with elastic indentations on my wrists from having it on way too long.

The shoes are worthy of so much love too, they are Elation shoes by Lindsey Warwick and are at this round of My Attic. The platform and heel are divine woodwork, and the rivets and perfect leather and fabric combination is just superb. I actually got to watch Lindsey make these as she has been streaming her work on Twitch.TV, you should definitely join and follow her channel.

Sasy in the Block

Sasy in the Block

Body hugging items are fantastic, especially when it is hugging the Slink Physique body, such as this incredible skirt by SySy’s does. High waisted pencil skirts are killer sexy, and this one going below the knee to give a tight seductive look, is all that and a bag of chips. The high waist allows for wearing a cropped top look, without baring anything other than your curves and not your skin, unless you want to. I love the style, and it comes in three options at this round of My Attic. The sweater I am wearing also from My Attic, is by Tutti Frutti and also has a striped versions, that are just so cute, going into Autumn, when needing a little more warmth in your look.

Moving down to the footwear, these sexy high feet shoes are Statice by Glamistry, available at My Attic also, and that means you just have to get all these things while the prices are incredible. The detailing, the texturing is all on par with elegantly sexy footwear. You have different options to access, and there is a hud that allows for all sorts of options. The heel on these is extreme, in that wonderful way, and supportive enough in the sole so that you can wear them all night, and into the next day, if the mood strikes you.

I am wearing Elizabeth hair by Lelutka, and the flicky style is so pretty and casual. I can see wearing this all the time for some that do like to commit to one style for the long haul, a go to hair for the rest of us. I had a hard time deciding on the colour, but I really love how rich it looks in the dark browns, so went with that. I do so love the choices we get to make when it comes to hair, I think that in many cases, it is the capture for many when starting Second Life, Hair was definitely my first love and addiction.

On the Fringe

On the Fringe

My Attic is now OPEN and I am so excited about the way in which the designers embraced this theme. I always tend to go with themes that are loose enough that the items will adapt into their store after the event really well, and it is always really interesting to see what comes of it. The theme this round is “Between the Lines ” and the Frang Purse by David Heather is the most amazing bag I have ever seen. You often see bags refered to in Movies or TV Shows as being the bags worth fighting for, or having to order in advance and pay exhorbant amounts of money for, and honestly now seeing and wearing this bag, I get it. This is the MUST HAVE bag, and as all items at My Attic it is only 95L during the event. There is unrigged and rigged versions, as well as Male and Female, so get on it.

I am wearing the Sidelines dress from Girl Thursday and the wrap around look is so sexy and it fits over the body well. There is clipping in my shape when walking, but I don’t need to walk, I just need to feel fabulous, I have also decided, I would rather have something that looks good and moves well and clips a little at the leg, than something that is made badly and alpha hides that it is rigged badly etc. This will differ shape to shape, and if you don’t wear a body you will have the alpha options. The dress, the bag, and the stunning hair by LeLutka, with the gorgeous jewellery that is at this round of C88 by LaGyo, all come together so well with the addition of the beautiful shoes by Bushu for My Attic. The shoes have stunning leather and strap work, and work with the Slink High feet, and I am loving the styles coming out of Bushu, so stay tuned for more in this brand, a new brand to keep your eye on.

I have taken my head off again, because there is no resisting the fact that League now has body appliers for the Slink Physique Body. I was so excited about this, to be able to put back on a skin that is so familiar to me. I am also looking forward to the release of her Visage appliers that are planned for the future. Nena has actually made her appliers work on the head and neck patch so that they go all the way up, there just is no face as of yet, so I did not have to take the neck patch off and it works very well.

Keeping Calm

Keep Calm

I love when creators use elements of Second Life in their work, something that makes sense only in SL but can make you chuckle or empathise a lot. I remember watching the movie “The Castle” and when the lawyer was fighting with the photocopier, everyone in the cinema related to it – well those of us that have ever had to use one in a work situtation. That is what this Neon Sign by The Loft is like, ‘Keep Calm and Reset Scripts’ we can all relate to the feeling of panic when something scripted doesn’t work, and all the flapping until your brain kicks in and you realise you can just reset it and it will work again. I think this sign needs to be prominant in many stores in SL, just so customers know it is an option.

Anyone that has ever read my blog for any amount of time over the years, will know that I have much love for Hat/Hair. This latest style from LeLutka is a stunning style, sophisticated and just spot on perfect for the upcoming seasons. The hat has a texture change option of six colours, and while this colour was not originally my first love, it went so perfectly with the leather leggings by Emery. I am so in love with the two nude colours of champagne and provence.

The belted blazer I am wearing is by Fashionably Dead, it is featured at this months Collabor88. It has fabulous wide shoulder pads, very 80’s and there are some incredible metalic colours available. I was actually really torn with buying the black or the silver, but decided I will get more wear out of the black, and definitely more combination options.

The mid feet wearable Ankle Booties style shoes from Essenz are their New York shoes, so fierce and perfect for a pants wearing look. The zipper is available in silver or gold, and I should have worn the gold, because of the zipper on the beautiful clutch by Ison, but I was having a rebelious moment….If after all these years we can wear blue and green together, and brown belts with black etc, then I can use silver and gold together.

I have removed my head for the first time in months, it took me some time to get used to seeing my default face, and worth it to have a romp around in the Pink Fuel Group Gift skin for this month – if you are not in the group, you better hurry. I wore it with one of the luscious lipsticks that Pink Fuel makes in a glossy red – wearing the with teeth visible option. I have been meaning to wear the Pink Fuel skins for some time, as they released Physique appliers with many different options of stomach and breasts, which is very cool, especially for those that like a more athletic body look. You have the options of Regular, Regular + Small Chest, Athletic, Athletic + Small Chest, Ripped , Ripped + Small Chest and Curvy. Great options, and now I just have my fingers crossed that Pink Fuel will eventually release Visage head appliers too, I would love to see her skins on the Slink Head as well.

One of the stores that I don’t blog often enough is Miseria, and that is appaling of me. I love her work, always have, but she tends to take little breaks and then I get sidetracked. Lately though she has been creating beautiful mesh items, and I fell instantly in love with the Bliss sandals by seeing a snapshot of them over someones shoulder during a plurk the other day. I ran right over to Miseria and snapped up the fatpack as they are not just a great slip on style, but it is the attention to detail in them that I love. The shoe doesn’t just have thong straps but they wrap all the way around the shoe giving a support kind of recessed fit to the foot, and they just look adorable on. Not only adorable on, but adorable off, I love that she went through the effort of making them a rezzable item as well, perfectly baking shadows of the straps, that just look so pretty I had to picture them as well.

While there I also fell for the Buffy skirt, I mean seriously it is a skirt that is just Buffy all over, and it fit beautifully with the Physique body, so well in fact that no alpha was needed at all with my size. Topping off the look, I went with some appliers layering with the great knot tshirt by Tee*fy. Again working so well with the body, and without any need to size up. I love when mesh is that well made that it just works.

I am wearing a new skin to me today, I have often wanted to try a Pink Acid skin and realised that their body appliers were only 1L and the head appliers are really cost effective as well, no make ups or any options but it worked for me. What didn’t work though is something I have noticed on a few appliers makers, that the nipples don’t line up with the nipples because of artistic license on where they are placed on the original. Please check this against the product you are putting them on please creators, because it is a bit of a let down, regardless of price if not wearable in all situations. So this skin for me will be a clothes only option, but other than that error, the skin is lovely.

It is interesting though, things like that, I have noticed it a lot lately. Like my old post, to shave or not to shave, where I lined up the hairline of dozens of skins, oh what a post that was. I have noticed that over the years things like belly buttons, nipples and ladyparts, all have a strange wiggle room by some creators, and with the template being layed out as precise as it is for creation on, it is surprising in some cases, I am guessing it is just for a little bit of ‘difference’ to the “norm”.

 EDIT – I have spoken to Stasey about the skin and she is going to look into fixing it today, which is an awesome response so quickly, I am really looking forward to it ♥
