What Happens

what happens 1

This is what happens when I remember that there’s only a few days left of this round of Collabor88 and get a new pair of shoes from N-Core! I adore these strappy heels called Venus. Not only do they come in 16 colors, but if you get the fatpack then you can change the color of the heel and back strap, as well as the front straps. The top is by The Secret Store and my skirt is by Auxiliary; it comes with the cute fox tail add-on to the side zipper. I really like how this look turned out today, and hopefully it will make you want to do some shopping too.

Good Girl Gone (a Little) Bad

I started off today’s look with the sexy Martini Dress and matching clutch from DCNY. It’s currently available at the Bewbapalooza event, which means that it also comes with appliers for Lola Tango breasts. The accent color of dress (on the bodice and on the clutch) varies from dress to dress, but I was in a rocker mood or something I guess.

I liked the blood orange lipstick on this Glam Affair skin in the Candy line, which is available as one of several gacha prizes at The Arcade. I thought it would really pop and work well with overall look because of the winged eye-liner. To top it off, literally and figuratively, I got the Ellie hair from LeLutka. I love the area above the ear being shaved to give it an edge, but the length still makes it feminine and I still feel like myself.

The New Vintage

Today I’m taking some items that say “vintage” and mixing them with some that are more modern to create an aesthetic I like to call “The New Vintage”. Both my hair (by lamb.) and dress (by The Secret Store) are at this round of Collabor88 so you only have a bit over a week to grab them if you you’ve been thinking about it!

My necklace (complete with close-up) is from Kunglers Extra. This is a brand that I’ve worn for years and love to show off because they always make something stunning. This Ivatan necklace is a special item for this month’s L’Accessoires event, so make sure to get it before it’s over!

Hair Fair 2013: Bandana Day Kits Available Now!

bandana

Every year, as a part of Hair Fair, there is a day where we shed our hair and wear bandanas in support of those who have lost their hair due to illness or treatments – this year it’s July 28, 2013. Anyone can make a bandana and have it put up for sale along with those done by designers! The kits are provided for free, and each bandana is sold for L$ 50 (with transfer permissions, so you can gift them). This year the base bandanas are mesh and were created by Mel Vanbeeck with easy retexturing in mind – the UV’s were made with a square in mind. If you’d like a kit, please contact Sasy Scarborough in-world.

Please note: since these bandanas will be set for sale, you need to have full perm items for decorating, as they cannot be sold otherwise. Completed bandanas need to be sent to CharitySasy String by July 3, 2013 so that they have plenty of time to be bought.

Any questions about the kits, bandanas, or Bandana Day can be directed to Sasy Scarborough or Whimsy Winx.

Fields of Pink

fields of pink1

Hi everyone! I’ve been meaning to post for a little bit, but finally took some pics yesterday night so I could get this outfit out to you. It all started with this 2 piece dress from DCNY at the Gemini round of Zodiac. The tops and bottoms can be inter-changed if you buy more than one color, and of course you can wear them separately. The top would look cute with some denim shorts, and you could pair the skirt with a soft blouse.

fields of pink2

I’m also wearing the adorable Darla Headband from Noodles which was a Fifty Linden Fridays item. However, you don’t have to miss out, you can still get it (or 5 other color versions) in the store for a little bit more. Don’t I look precious in it? I’m not taking it off, no way, no how!

Chevron Way

A little while ago my alt got herself some mesh breasts, and when I saw the Belted Chevron dress from DCNY, I splurged and bought myself a pair. So here we go, my first post using mesh breasts! They take some adjusting, but I’ll be using them more as the weather gets warmer and I want to show some more skin. This dress comes in a variety of colors, with 2 belt options (black or brown), and then a belt-less version like I am wearing. You can get it right now at My Attic, which only runs for a short while longer.

A Casual Easter

easter1

I got some new items from E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories today, and one of them was a cute new tank top with an Easter bunny. Since it’s just a couple days away I put together a casual version of an Easter outfit using it as the base. It’s the current VIP group gift, if you’re not a member of the store’s group, there is a group join board next to the gift. There is a L$ 400 join fee, but you get a gift every month so it’s totally worth it. I decided to also wear their new Kallie Pants in Navy, which has a subtle leather texture. The pants come in 10 colors so there’s plenty to chose from.

easter2

I added the Video Games hair by Truth to top it off, since it comes with a flower headband that reminds me of the headbands that little girls tend to wear with their Easter dresses. For L$ 100 you can take your chance at The Arcade and get a random color from the gacha machine. The headband is separate from the hair so you can wear it with other hair.

That’s all from me for today, Happy Easter everyone!
