Lookbook #5

Is it me, or has anyone noticed how difficult it’s been to get into events lately? faMESHed, Collabor88, Uber… I’m seeing a theme. While I am glad to see some of my favorite events garnering more traffic, I still find myself resisting the urge to pull a Walmart SL version of Jeff Dunham. Just saying.

On the flip side, this month marks the first anniversary of Shiny Shabby! It’s amazing how fast time has gone by. I was able to pick up some really great finds when I did manage to get in, though I’m sure I’ll be heading back for more soon. But even if nothing at the event catches your eye, be sure to stop on by anyway. Most of the creators have put out some fabulous free anniversary gifts for the occasion, including this coffee tumbler from Vale Koer. What fashionista could possibly go without her morning cuppa?

Also happening, is an extended version of Exposeur’s sale. The wonderful RubyStarlight Writer explains about her situation here and why she has extended her sale, and as an owner of two cats myself, I can only imagine what she must be going through. So, if you are looking for some really great poses and props for a good price, please stop on by the Exposeur mainstore and show your support Ruby and her babies. <3

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.

White Walls

Okay, so I finally caved. I love mesh heads in SL and though I tried the first round of those from LeLutka and was suitably unimpressed by the style of the heads, I have to admit that the second batch was more geared to my style of avatar. After some debate, I decided on Stella, whom I felt had a more fresh and playful look to her, as opposed to the others. I like the curvature of the chin and jaw much more, the definition and the flirty set to the lips and the presence of- lo’ and behold, cheekbones! Nevertheless, I am having a lot of fun playing with the HUD, which offers so much more in the way of options and at a seriously smaller price tag than that of the Mesh Project.

Also new this week are skirts and cropped tops from ColdLogic, gorgeous and modifiable belts from Molichino and an expansive mesh pose prop from Exposeur for the 3rd Birthday Round of faMESHed.

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*
