Lookbook # 1

With my interests rapidly growing beyond just fashion, I’ve decided to segregate my fashion themed posts into their own category as lookbooks, and leave the options for titles open to everything else.

With that being said, does anyone remember the fashion trend that were gaucho pants? These versatile cropped pants seem to evolve every ten years or so and are steeped in fashion history. They recently came back into style back in 2008 after a long hiatus through the 80s and while their parentage are a breed somewhere between capri and skirt, they’ll forever live in our hearts as a fashion staple.

In this case, Cocoro Lemon has recently released these wide-legged cropped pants for faMESHed and instantly, I was transported back in time. Hello… gaucho pants 2.0, anyone? Nevertheless, whatever they may be called or irrespective of whether gauchos have made a comeback or not, I had to have these, and I knew exactly the shoes I would pair them with, too.

New shoes from Essenz for the Gacha Garden are a must have. They are strappy and sexy and oh so drool worthy. My good friend Avril can attest to the fact that I probably got a little too excited when I saw them, but hey… we did have fun gacha-ing it up to get the full set. Speaking of which, the Gacha Garden is a unique gacha event that offers incentives for the number of times a machine is played. Every twenty plays, you’ll receive a ‘Seed of Inspiration,’ which is a unique and transferable item that are retired at the end of the event. The SOI for Essenz is a fantastic HUD with six limited edition colors, so grab it now before it’s too late. The Gacha Garden ends February 29th.

Forever Yours

Although I am having the time of my life in my RL travels, I have to admit, I am missing home a bit. And my bed. And my desktop. Nevertheless, I managed to squeeze out just enough time and patience on my SL hating laptop to put together a few pictures for this post. So, if they look bad, just hang in there- I’ll be home next month!

Still, I wanted to show you guys some new, red hot releases in the form of this fluffy fur coat by Aurelia Chauveau for MOLiCHiNO and the Gypset Market. Also new are some vintage themed Collabor88 items by Nylon Outfitters, Maxi Gossamer and Maitreya. Oh, and this gorgeous new skin by Aida for Glam Affair. I think Sia is stunning, makeup options and all, but I would love to see a clean version included so I can wear her full time. *Le Sigh*

Matoluta Bay

Peter and I went out exploring the new sim, Matoluta Bay the other day, but I decided to come back for a closer look. Sporting Liv-Glam and my L. Warwick wedges, I braved the grassy hills and outran some testy cattle as I explored this new sim.

If you haven’t been to Matoluta Bay yet, it is a really lovely sim and animal santuary. Set with a flowing masterpiece of seasons, the Bay offers visitors a wide range of flora and fauna, fields of sunflowers and beautifully landscaped fields. It is brought to you by Shine Landscaping and helps to promote in the preservation of the Spanish Colonial horse, which can also be found in several locations around the sim.

Overall, Matoluta Bay is a great place for exploring, photography, roleplaying or just spending some quiet moments with a significant other in one of the many special spots.

Barbie & Ken

As a little girl, I loved playing with my Barbie dolls. Dressing them up, brushing their hair and oh- the accessories! Now, what are our avatars but virtual Barbie’s, right? I was giddy over the fact that Peter let me dress him up as Ken to my adult version of Barbie, with lots and lots of pink and the inspiration for it all, this loose tank from Le Primitif and (barbie pink) peeptoes from Co57!

Afterwards, we had so much fun walking along the pretty boardwalk at Silver Lake, riding the ferris wheel, munching on cotton candy and nachos (I told him to get his own!) and enjoying the pretty sunset out over the water.

I’d love to see your versions of this famous childhood couple, or even just the fashionista herself!
