Get Wet on a Weekday

Get Wet on a Weekday

I was lucky enough to be given early access to Uber a few hours ago, and on landing the inner circle literally floored me. I had to lay down to recover once I saw this boho fish shack collection by DRD. There was me laying the ground, if I had a brown paper bag I would have been breathing into it. If you haven’t realised yet I am water, ocean, fishy obsessed. This, however, does not mean just putting a fish on something, or a dolphin or waves will have me going giddy all the time – most of the time – but not all the time. But something like this set, well damn there is no amount of descriptive words that could truly do it justice. It is a big set, and well worth its price tag, but you can also purchase it in parts if you are on a budget or only feel the need for bits of it – that last part to me means you are crazy but not really judging, just a little judging. While I don’t completely lose myself in the shack set, there are other things there too, and it took a long turn around the place for me to get as much as I could carry.

Word of warning, I have discovered that my usual wear system layers to shop in and then try everything on and leave on the last demo you had on while you continue is not always safe, especially if you do not turn the layers back on. Today I experienced my first ‘TIMER DEMO’ mishap and wasn’t that pleasant! walking around standing in front of a booth and bam NAKED! next to a nice couple. I had actually even purchased the demo item I was wearing, but I had more shopping to do, but ending up naked from a timer demo is not cool, events are huge and they are laggy in some cases, and it is easier to stay in the demo until you change to the next demo. I understand the want to not have people use the demo for pics or whatever the case may be, but I for one would much prefer you attach a prim than have me end up naked in public…lesson learned though to return myself to my layered state before continuing.

Continue I did, picking up this gorgeous bikini by Slink that is a guest of the lovely Baiastice booth this round. The theme of the event is Summer Lovin and I sure had me a blast. This swimsuit is called Athena and with the right lighting has a perfectly shiny and somewhat wet look to it, which just worked perfectly with the droplets effect that comes with my body HUD and then the fantastic wet look hair by Mina that is an interactive style that actually gets wet from SL water. You even get a hairdryer that will blow it dry for you. Mina has actually also updated the hair to include a more versatile hud for picture taking so if not near the water you can still put it into a wet state, and it even has water particles that drip of it, so much fun. It is a system that was created by Salt & Pepper and they did a collaboration together, there is also a dress I picked up at Uber that goes wet also when worn in water.

The shoes I am wearing are by Reign also at Uber and have three options, flat, platform and tiptoe so can be worn with flat and high feet. The straps and soles have texture change options and they are nice rubbery soles so you don’t misstep when wet and walking around uneven surfaces.

Uber is just about to open its doors for another round, and this is the time of the year when each participant gets to invite a Designer friend to join them in their booth. I always like seeing not only who people pair up with, but how their styles merge. I was in the middle of taking pics when I realised that it was that day and funnily enough was already in the throes of using some items from a past Uber event. I remember this because I had a mini-meltdown standing there trying to decide what colour scooter I wanted and that there was no fatpack to just validate my reason behind having them all. How does one know what colour scooter is going to be the scooter at the moment, too much pressure? The helmet option colour I went with was bang on though, so even though I would totally ride an orange scooter wearing all black, I would also wear an array of many colours, the orange was the go to at the time.

I also loved that there was a loaded option, meaning you can get just the scooter and its beauty, or the loaded included with the stickers of locations been etc, and the bag and rug so that you can sleep by the roadside if you get stuck in some lonely highway.

The reason for my wanderlust ways, is this jacket that is at the current round of Shiny Shabby, this jacket is leathery brilliance, not only is it just a great looking mesh jacket with fabulous texture, but look at the detailing of the safety pins on the back, and my new hair by ItGirls with the options to have the hair look as though it has moved for pics like this was just perfect to showcase the back.

While getting the hair I also picked up two skins for LeLutka heads by ItGirls, this one gives me such fuller lips for the Chloe Head it is ravishing. The pants I am wearing with the jacket are by Blueberry, they are not Hourglass sizing though as the pants were out before the hourglass body was released. However because of my shape and the settings on the Slink HUD they work perfectly in XS Standard Sizing for me, so never go without something without trying it on, you may find that whatever sizes are available, it may still fit you depending on style.

I had actually opted for the dark grey in this jacket, because the black was black and the dark grey was more like a worn in black, and this is the kind of jacket you wear forever. The pants also had a dark grey option so perfect matches all around. I put together the scene with some cliffs and some sand I had laying around, some cars from events and it looks like I have found some like-minded travellers to meet up with.

Petite and Sweet

Petite is Sweet

One of the other great reasons to use the Petite Augment by Slink is that it can enable stacking of mesh in standard sizing fits of old, that may have not been possible to wear with your regular breast size and shape. I am wearing the latest Oh Carol bustier from the gorgeous lingerie set by Adam n Eve that is at Vintage Fair currently, with this over the shoulder blazer I have from Emery that is much smoother over the chest and was made in standard sizing.

The Slink Petite Augment fits perfectly underneath as well as the bustier in mesh no clipping and a smoother and more sophisticated look. I have on the wrong kind of cleavage for the petites but I wanted so much to wear the new skin by YS&YS I let it go this time. It is not overly cleavage enhanced though, and I do have my shape settings to around 80 even with the petites on so it is probably an A cup? I can pretend I have those chicken fillet things stuffed in my bustier for a bit of extra lift – you believe me right.

The coat is gorgeous, but as it was made standard sizing and actually I do believe pre-mesh bodies, it pretty much just alphad out the entire arms/hands with wearable alpha, I think the idea was to believe your arms and hands were just underneath, it does not come with any animations to lock them in place so it is definitely more of a prop item than a definite wearable, unless you don’t mind hiding all, and with the new slink body hud options you can in fact just turn off your hands and wrists as well.

The style of coat and the bustier, especially in this colour, worked really well with the style I wanted for the day, the pants are from my recent trip over to Fashionably Dead and for great trousers these are wonderful. The style and colour made it a no-brainer when pairing the lookup with these clog style heels by Utopia.

Hair drawn back from the face or using the new styling features on the Mina hair HUD I could go with looser tendrils framing the face option, but I would leave that for the end of the day, I have to start out a little more put together, first impressions and all that. Love that about the styling huds, do not have to be huge options, just little nuances that can take you from one time of day or set to another.

Get Shorty and Sporty

Get Shorty and Sporty

I may have mentioned in yesterdays post how much I was enjoying my bottom in the Skinnery skin appliers. I had purchased the new Drew skin and when I applied to the body, I was reminded of the nice bum factor of it. We tend to spend a lot of time back there, so it is nice when everything is as pretty as can be.

So when I saw that Cynful had released some new shorter than short shorts, I ran over this evening and picked up the new Baewatch set – you get shorts and a cute half covering tank top – as well as other shorts set called Rain Baby that comes with a hoodie. Lots of options whether single or fatpacking, so check out the HUDs in the demo, as Cynful explains visually as well as text what is included if only opting for the single colour purchase, which is nice and helpful.

I have had these gacha sets rezzed on my platform for ages now, saw them at backdrop city when it first opened and everything we saw that we liked Whimsy and I ran over to their stores and grabbed whatever we could…we like to own things, even if like these they sat around maturing for months. They are very Miami Beach scene looking – to me who has never been and watches way too many movies. If Barbie was going to rent for the summer, this is what it would look like I imagine.

Exile has released this amazing style of hair at Rewind, and it does come with adorable daisy flowers scattered all over it, but I opted for the without option, because I was feeling very sporty and such. The styling HUD included has the full style front option, then side swept left and right options and all with and without the flowers.

I have so many sets of rollerskates now, but I could not resist these by N-Core, they say they are for Slink Physique Original, but as they do not go higher than the knee they fit Hourglass also. The shoes by Rebel Gal are just too much fun with their racey look. You can change so many of the features with the HUD in the fatpack, and they even did some of the work for you by including some combinations already set. Matchy matchy with my shorts set.

My Own Sunshine

My Own Sunshine

Sometimes you just have to make your own weather, and with these pants by Coco I brought the sunshine to my wintery world. It is very cold down under at the moment, and these pants just make me deliriously happy. I have been waiting for wide legged pants like this since Celoe closed their doors, and need more colour options. You can get them at this round of Fameshed and while there is a top that looks great with them there also, Coco just released this great semi tucked shirt that is perfect as a great staple piece for your wardrobe.

Ran around the grid a bit the past few days, went over to the new session of Rewind – Summer of Love event. It looks fantastic, and so well laid out. I love the Coachella/Woodstock look of it all. I got this gorgeous skin for LeLutka by The Skinnery, so loving the face, and my bottom looks sensational. I also picked up this hair by Navy & Copper which had been released at another event but suits the theme, so check before you buy that you haven’t already purchased it before. I especially love the hair wrap as it is textured so well it seems fluffy and soft.

The shoes I am wearing are at Kustom9 and if you get the fatpack you get the option to change all the parts so you can do as I did, and coordinate with your outfit. They are beautiful strappy high heels, with the ruffle look across the foot. The build is also at K9 and is such a great loft style and I could not resist these windows and the radiator making the scene – because even though I have on yellow bright pants, I am still freezing.

I would rather be

I would rather be

Fashionably Dead than Fashionably Late. The other day I was checking on some slurls for my post on Tres Blah and realised that I have not been to Lulu sim in a long time. I wanted to see if they had done any landscaping projects, because Lulu used to be a much visited sim by many for their outdoors. It is still lovely over there but I realised that I could not walk from store to store, as the paths do not lead that way, once you go out and over the bridge you have to go back in from store to store, tricky, but thank goodness for flying.

I flew over to Fashionably Dead and picked up some group gifts, then some jeans, then some, well room to room got my attention, each item complimented other items, and actually fit eachother even if not made for the same time. I am not sure that is definitely the case for everything, but everything I got did so, and I got pretty much something from everywhere.

The boyfriend jeans are perfect for people that are not low slung hip hugging wearers, the boyfriend look is still very cool for just spending the day out and about. The top is so pretty, and because of its satiny goodness, it can be casual dressy or dressy dressy, which is marvelous. For a day out and about and with bared shoulders, I went with this oversized sun hat by Baiastice, that includes a bandana only option, and I am a fan of bandanas as you know.

The casual dressy worked out well with the margot slippers by Slink where you can turn on or off the straps, and also have the deluxe feet option of all heights, so you can be on pointe or kitten, mid, high and flat. I love these as a quick pretty shoe, and kept them throughout the post.

Then moving into these resort pants, I was feeling the blush pink, and the top is a top from a spring shorts set, but as a top is great too. I added the choker part of the one shoulder top by Coco that is at this months Fameshed, I knew I would get great use from the choker aspect of it.

Lastly the top was a gift at FD, and as I mentioned it fit perfectly with the skirt that was actually made to fit over a henley style bodysuit, but I wanted to see what I could do with it even further, so the top, then the addition of some highwasted pants by Muka perfectly fitting underneath. I am using those sleeve add ons by Tee*fy again, I love them, and they come in handy so much to round out and change a look.

The styles of hair are by Exile, and I was feeling their brunette to blonde mixes today, which paired with the Alessa skin by League, just makes me feel all rawr and ready to take on the day/night.

Dotty for you

Dotty for You

I promised more of these stunning knickers by Adam n Eve featured at this years Vintage Fair that is now open to the public. These are the second option of the Gacha prizes available, the polka dot versions come in ten colours and the rare is all colours.

If you had been anywhere near me last night, you would have blocked your ears to stop them bleeding as the screams of joy from my platform were piercing. Not only do I love the polka dot version of these pants all by themselves, but to find that the Hope Kimono by Tres Blah fit over them as though made for eachother had me incredibly excited. Not a smidge of clipping anywhere, I am even right now as I write this dancing in a stunning build by Bryn Oh which is an instalation of single scene poems she has created, it is raining and I am dancing and I am enjoying it a lot.

So as mentioned yesterday, you can get the floral or the polka dot knickers as a gacha item, and then add the solids by purchasing them with the matching bustiers, or just grab the solids in the colours/fatpack you like. They even come with petites options included.

I love this look, as it is the weekend and the idea of just spending time in the home, enjoying the space, being comfortable and very girly, and it gave me another reason to show off the bedding by Cheeky Pea.

This hair by Exile has the shorter bangs that give a very Betty Page look to the style, and that right there is all the vintage look love. Slipping into some flat mules by G Field with their pretty little bows across the foot, everything is perfect. I hope your day is.
