Make A Wish

It’s official! Another event (Hello, Tuesday) has left the ladies of Liv-Glam offering us fabulous and ridiculously low priced items for every day of the week. This gorgeous, strapless dress is perfect for the summer and if my style has been any indication over the past few years, I loooove the colorful, floral/tropical print, just one of six different pantone options available with this purchase. And did I mention that it is only 50L? (… that’s what I said!)

There is something so sweet and feminine and simply classic about a sweetheart neckline and short, a-line skirt that I was inspired by this dress to create a pose pack of the same name. As an introductory deal, from now until the end of the month, if you buy both dress (from Liv-Glam) and pose pack (from :: momentum ::,) I’ll give you 50% back on the poses. Simply send me a notecard with your name and transaction history for both purchases.

And the Award Goes To…

Petey and I had fun last night, snapping some raw images and playing around with random decor at home. We even rezzed our new statuettes from Commoner that took me ages to collect, but were totally worth it. Speaking of which, the March Round of the Arcade ends in just four days, so be sure to grab as many of your favorite gachas as you can!

Liquid mesh is fast spreading across the grid and the Redgrave team has made their mark in those ranks with this new, ready-for-summer dress. First off, I love the one shoulder look of this piece and the draping to the waist that has a bit of Indian flair to it.

The HUD that comes with this dress has some crazy customization options. Not only can you change fabrics, but textures and patterns as well as colors that completely change the look and feel of each one. There is also a random color picker, as well, for some rather nifty results. Also new in this HUD, is an option to give the dress a neon glow, perfect for raves or nighttime parties.

And for those of you who are not familiar with Liquid Mesh, here’s the simple lowdown: Liquid mesh is rigged; however, it does adjust according to an avatar’s shape (within reason,) therefore eliminating the need for a standard size. Of course, liquid mesh isn’t without its faults, either. Without the use of an alpha layer, body parts will still likely poke through the mesh, but in using an alpha layer that is designed on one shape, you’ll undoubtedly find yourself with transparency issues in areas that are not covered by the mesh itself. There is still some debate on whether liquid mesh will have a future in SL, but in the meantime, I haven’t encountered too many faults with the pieces I have tried out in the past.

As for the rest of my outfit, I was trying to decide on what shoes to wear with the dress when I stumbled across these exclusive colored sandals from Hucci. I never seem to actually blog the shoes the day of the 21Shoe Event, but at least you guys can get an idea of some of the awesome releases that are exclusive to this event. For more info, be sure to check out the website, and don’t forget to join the inworld group for reminders and notices for each month!

Romy a la Satine

Have you guys seen Romy yet? She’s the newest release by Glam Affair for the Skin Fair and she’s lovely! I admit, I was a bit skeptical at first try because the eyes seemed to have a bit more of an Asian flair than I was used to, but with some tweaking here and there, I managed to come up with a look that I find refreshing and sweet. The new customization that Aida has been introducing is a lot of fun, too and ensures that you can create a look that is unique to you. Makeups, noses, brows, cheeks, lips, shadows- you name it, all come on different tattoo layers so that you can mix and match until your hearts content; however, I do wish that at the very least, the brows came on a skin layer so that I can save on tattoos and don’t have to sacrifice my favorite combinations for the limited number of tattoo layers that we can use. Why only five, LL, why?

Also out for a new event is some Moulin Rouge inspired fashion. The new Serafilms (movies!) event, in a bi-monthly collaboration with Seraphim Social (books!) has introduced this sexy vintage theme for its first round. When I saw these new pieces from Junbug and Cae, I just had to have them. Adding in the headpiece and I feel just like Satine from the movie. Minus the tragic ending, of course.

Black Label Angel

The new, all-exclusive Black Label line from Liv-Glam added this new pant outfit to its ranks recently. Angel of Harlem features classy trousers and sophisticated blouses in three interchangeable colors and textures (via HUD!) so that you can create several different looks.

I am really in love with this outfit. The high-waisted pants are a perfect fit for the tucked in floral and lace blouse, two of my favorite combinations. The neutral colors can lend this outfit to a variety of uses, but I decided to go a little office glam by adding an up-do and glasses.

Though there is nothing tragic about this outfit, I did add a fun new ring by tea soup for the Oneword Event, whose voting for the second round word runs through March 26th.

Enchanted

Cherelle Capra from Circa Living released this ‘Enchanted Meadow’ Fae inspired vanity set for the Fae Edition of the Genre Event. It’s mesh, it’s whimsical and it’s gorgeous! It comes in five colors with 24 poses and wearable vanity props. She’s also recently released a Mermaid Version for the same event (Mer Edition) so be sure to head on over and grab it at a great price before it’s too late!

ColdLogic also released the first of their spring line, featuring dresses, trousers and shirts in bright spring colors and fabrics. I’m wearing this ruffly seafoam colored dress that paired perfectly with this new hair from Exile for the Arcade.

With Pose Fair 2014 just around the corner, I’ve had the privilege of seeing the new releases from Pose Fair first-timer Roquai. He has the most amazing poses prepared for this event, including the one shown above. Keep an eye on the Hottie Cooterati Blog for more updates as we get closer to the event!

Crop It Like It’s Hot

I’m a little behind this week, but I just had to squeeze in a post to show you guys a few of the awesome outfits available from Sam and Kim this past week for FiFriday and Secret Wednesdays.
