Making Waves

For the longest time I have been wanting to play with Disney inspired outfits, and finally the perfect opportunity arose to channel a little mermaid. My Ariel themed ensemble, of course, couldn’t be possible without new releases from Uber in the form of fishy scale skirt (Valentina E.) and long, beachy waves from Truth.

If you’re a Disney lover like me, I’d love to see your Ariel (or other character) inspired creations!

Slave for Love (and shoes!)

There’s a new event running from February 6-19th called Fresh! that I’ve never heard of until recently. In fact, Peter sent me the URL, which can only mean one of two things. I’ve either broken him in when it comes to shopping, or he just wanted to show me some kinky stuff. Either way, with the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie this week that everyone has been clamoring about, this event by ROMP is definitely worth a look. It has some amazing designers and products up for grabs, so if you are into the kinky stuff, head on over before it’s all gone!

Also new are these new Aster Heels by Glamistry, which pair perfectly with the chain themed dress I got from Valentina E. Couture. I kept it simple with no accessories, but did add this new wavy hairstyle by Chemistry that I love!

Even Petey is wearing a new release. I was so proud of him when I came home one day and he had went out and bought this new Deadwool suit all on his own. It’s available at the Men’s Department and I must say, is a total winner if you are in the market for something a little fancier than your typical suit, and with some great textures, too!

Pocket Full of Posies

I’ve been wandering around SL for a few days now in this beautiful, frilly new dress from Valentina E. and my new Glamistry heels that match it perfectly and trying to find a place to take pictures.

I happened upon ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ and landmarked it last week, waiting for the opportune moment to come back and snap a few pictures. The pretty pinks and purples of this sim made today the perfect time.

If you haven’t been, ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ is a beautifully decorated half-sim with a dreamy Asian-inspired theme, tons and tons of flowers and a really pretty chinese lantern display that lights up over the water. It kind of reminded me of that scene from Tangled and then I got all weepy, but anyway- it really is a must see place.

Mayfair

Apple Fall has this amazing ‘Mayfair’ set out for the current round of the Arcade. Like his last ‘Paris’ set, I am loving the soft, vintage feel of the pieces that go beautifully with the oh-so coveted RARE Skybox. God only knows I had to play away my firstborn just to get it. But, it is so worth it! The Mayfair Skybox has three rooms off the main hallway- bathroom, bedroom and general living space. The textures are a little worn, a little vintage and super chic.

I finished furnishing my new bedroom with some more amazing pieces from the Arcade, including items from Second Spaces, Tres Blah and Pixel Mode. Really, if you haven’t managed to get in yet- keep trying! You can also cam-shop from the nearby Gatcha Galley sim as well!

I am also decked out new hair from Exile (for the Arcade!) and this new lazy Sunday inspired panty and tank set from Valentina E. Couture for the September round of fameshed. I thought it was a perfect match to lounge around the Mayfair suite. I love that it even comes with a robe that opens and closes with a simple chat command. Mesh is getting better and better every day.

BOOM @ The Arcade

Hard to believe a week has gone by already for the June round of the Arcade! I just can’t get enough of the craziness of gachas- I have to have them all, including these cute friendship bracelets from BOOM. I so remember these from grade school and the simple string replicas bring back such fun memories of all of the girls vying to get as many on their wrists as they could fit. Oh, those were the days!

Also new this week at faMESHed are these wedge slingback sandals by Eboni Kahn of Hucci. She is really rocking the new releases lately and with my SLink hands and feet being permanently attached to my avatar, I love all of the addons that have been popping up all over the grid! These sandals come in eight mix and match color options and the regular version with cork heels come in ten striped colors.

There is a new event premiering this month called The Kollective. It features an inspirational collaboration between designers and bloggers that will offer fashionistas some fabulous new releases at great prices. The first round begins on June 22, so check out the flickr group for sneak peeks of all the latest releases and for who’s participating in this great event!

Bizarre Dandelion

Zodiac has so many great new releases for the Gemini round! I’ve already blogged several great pieces on the Hottie Cooterati blog, but I wanted to show off another piece that I picked up today! As if it isn’t obvious what my favorite color is, I just had to have this Dandelion One Piece from Valentina E. It’s so bright and cheery and goes perfect with the Bizarre Flower set from LaGyo that I’ve had in my inventory for ages.

Eaters Coma also has a great new release in two versions, one for standard breast sizes and also one for Lolas. I love the thought that Kumii put into her design because as much as I love to wear longer styles, I have trouble finding ones that fit when I do actually wear my Lolas appliers. So, if you are definitely sporting a full bosom, do check out this new hairstyle from Eaters Coma!

I’ve also been taking a lot of pictures at my home sim lately as I can honestly say it is about 90% complete! It’s been under a constant remodel for almost a year now and will never be finished enough for me, but I love that it allows me to create exactly the backdrop I need for whatever picture comes to mind. I almost always settle for something with a water or beachy feel to it, but I love going out and seeing what everyone else comes up with! What are your home sim preferences when it comes to decorating? I’d love to hear all about it!

I Dream [Print] of Genie

I still can’t help but continue to play around with poses from Pose Fair 2013! These ones are from Dream Print and so fun to explore the Kingdom of Sand sim with! If you aren’t familiar with KoS, even as a visitor, you have to go! Wow, is this sim beautiful! It is an MMORPG in a desert setting but luckily there were visitors tags at the entrance, so I was able to get in for a few hours and just wander around! It is stretched across two sims and everywhere you turn are picture perfect backdrops!

The new cycle of faMESHed is also out now and my trip to Kingdom of Sand was inspired by this oh-so-pretty and modern take on a sari and skirt by Valentina E. Couture. She’s also released ‘Barely,’ a teeny tiny dress with a matching print [with the sari/skirt] as well, both of which are perfect for the encroaching hot summer months. Or, unless you live in the South, the past couple of weeks!

Of course I couldn’t wear a sari and not wear some jewelry by Zaara and though her Nizam jewel collection isn’t exactly a new release, Zaara’s work is still always stunningly beautiful!

Bohemian Hipster

These new releases from Valentina E. Couture at faMESHed have a super refreshing, minimalist look about them, which is perfect for the warmer months ahead.

I really felt a bohemian vibe with the hipster skirt and slinky cropped tank, so I paired them with the new Surfer Rosa hair from Clawtooth (available at the Arcade) and these just released Denimore boots from Liv-Glam. These boots are perfect for the look I was going for and I am delighted at the available color options! They are definitely going to be a favorite of mine this season.
