Hair Fair 2015 – My Picks

Hey guys! There are only two more days before the end of Hair Fair. Have you gone yet….twice…three times? It took me a while to decide what to get, and I told myself that I would only go there once to purchase everything. I’m not sure if that was such a good idea…I totally got a hair hangover afterwards (yes, headache and all lol).

So even though you will see other hairs I got from Hair Fair 2015, I wanted to
highlight these as well. I took these pictures at my friend’s studio, so that was a nice change of pace ^^

1. elikatira – Rayne

Loved the side playful ponytail on this hair.

2. Exile – Walking On Sunshine

This would take a bit to add this many curls to the end of the hair.

3. Vanity Hair – Never Wanted U

Nice take on a bob, would look great with highlights as well.

4. LeLutka – Dakota

Sexy tousled hair is always a plus!

5. Exile – Future Outcasts

This hair reminded me of Kelly Kapowski for some reason.

6. elikatira –  Brooklyn

Because Brooklyn…duh!

7. Analog Dog – sassafras

I am absolutely in LOVE with these curls!

Hey guys! As I hinted in my previous post, here is a list of stores & locations  that you should check out for the holiday season. It’s top to shop ’til you drop, but not lighten your wallet!

 

1. Glam Affair group gift (skin)

 

2. Curio group gift (skin)

I couldn’t find a picture from the designer, so here is a blog post about it: https://fabfree.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/boxing-day-means-shopping-so-shopping-ive-done/

3. Exile gift (hair)

https://carolineapollo.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/inspiration/

3. LeLutka group gift (hair)

They have several hairs – check to see which ones you get because they have old gift hairs out as well.

4. Chop Zuey gifts and group gifts (jewelry & accessories)

What I like about Chop Zuey is that they have women’s group gifts, men group gifts, and non-members’ group gifts. Because of the 12 days of Christmas, that’s up to 3 dozen gifts when you join the group. There is a group fee, but pretty much each item is worth at least the fee. Here is a sample of what they have:

 

5.  Analog Dog – gift (hair)

Analog Dog has several curly hairs for 0L – whole fatpacks. They are indicated by the green vendors. I believe the pink vendors are 50% off as well. I am not sure when this is going to end so better hurry over there.

 

6. Inspiration Hunt (clothing, poses, accessories)

Check out all the items that the hunt has!

 

 

7. The Twelve Days of Christmas ghee VIP Hunt (clothing & accessories)

There are some amazing items at the ghee mainstore. I couldn’t find photos of the items, but take a look at this blog here: http://debbiejasper16.blogspot.com/2014/12/do-it-with-style.html

Debbie also features the next store on my list…

8. Truth (hair)

…a cute Christmas hair complete with a red cap. Even though the holiday season is coming to an end, you can still wear it, or save it for next year ^^

 

 

Holiday Shopping

Walking the streets at Mayfair

Hey guys! This month has been pretty busy – studying for that last month of tests and finals in real life, and then trying to keep up with all the sales, advent presents, and group gifts in Second Life! Now that I have time on my hands, I’ll see if I can catch up with some of the stuff that is still being offered.

Lelutka has a great gift right now for the holiday season – Chill hair that also comes with a hat. Too bad the hat doesn’t change color, but at least you can have it in every hair color ^^

COCO Designs had a 50% off sale that ended on the 15th. I know, I know – I should had told you guys. I had not gone to COCO for a while because all I saw were dolls, and not actual clothing being made. And it’s hard to keep up with what stores have if you aren’t in their group, and the blogs or Flickrs that you follow don’t really feature their designs. But when I did find out about the sale, I was amazed. Once again, COCO has the classic items everyone should have in their wardrobe. I have on the Oversized Coat with a turtleneck sweater, and the black pleated miniskirt (hard to see from this picture but it’s really cute).

I purchased the Hucci Ikela Neutrals fatpack a few days after I got the other boots I previously talked about from the Black Friday sale. I love them – I have been wearing them a lot lately.

Stay tuned for more items!

A Belated Valentine’s Greeting

vday_003Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys! I just wanted to wish you all a happy belated Valentine’s ^^ I was planning on showing a nice sexy number to celebrate, but just wasn’t in the mood :p I did manage to pick up a few gifts and sales along the way.

Drift is having a sale right now – 99L on all purple, pink, and red items. Hence, the nice new shirt that I am wearing now 🙂 Also, Gos Boutique has a lovely pair of shoes as a group gift now at the store.

Want more sales and gifts? Then check out this pinterest link here.

I tried to get Snowflake in the photo, but he’s nowhere to be found. I swear ever since I moved, you can never find this cat anymore. At the old house, he would always be up under me. Figures…

Chicago, Shepham Estates

I know – I’m back so soon right? That’s what happens when you have a lot of things to show 🙂 I guess this could be considered a Look of the Day post, because what I did was to build a look around this dress from Cynful (via the Hello Titty hunt). I wonder where the lace part of this dress went…unless it’s on the regular layer. I never checked…

This time, I wanted to go for a classy look, to show that Lolas can look sexy without showing ALL the goods…not that it’s a bad thing, just may not be appropriate at times.  I had just finished the hunt at Bliss Couture and realized the hat would go nicely with the dress.

Then I realized the neck area was totally bare, and it needed a jacket or a shrug or something of the sort. Now, most jackets won’t work because of the mesh breasts, so I had to get creative. I remembered that House of Fox had a fur shrug that I picked up not too long ago, so I added that. My neck still needed something…maybe a necklace? I don’t usually wear pearls, but I thought it would go nicely with this look, and Artistry by E had a set that complemented nicely.

Add some gloves, some heels, and the rest is history…ta da! I quite like how this look turned out. I probably would have liked a ring to go with the look, but nothing came to mind while I was styling.

Warm up to Novemeber

Wow…it’s already several days into November! I honestly don’t know where the days went, but a lot of things have been happening with me lately – both in SL and RL.

Today I have some more sexy lingerie from Carrie’s Lingerie – Fall Coordinates have arrived in the mainstore, and it’s very hard to decide which ones to mix and match to get your perfect fit. Well…not really that hard – just that you want to buy all of the things 🙂 Below I am wearing the Fall Plaid lingerie, with some extras thrown in there*winks*

Carrie was very generous with this release – you buy one set and you are able to coordinate several looks. Since I came up with several looks, I will try to describe what I am wearing in each photo.

1 – This is the Fall Plaid lace bra and thong, along with matching brown stockings.
2 – Carrie also made matching makeup to go along with the lingerie (I love makeup!) so I am wearing the Fall leaf full makeup in Brick.
3 – This is the tan garter and stockings combination from the Fall Plaid set.
4 – The Brick skirt is sold separately, but I wanted to wear it to show you how diverse this new collection is…you truly can mix and match these items, ladies!
5 – Last, but not least, are the brown garter/stockings combination (my personal favorite of the two colors).

There are more looks – I left out the boy shorts, pasties, and a shelf bra (that shows partial nipple…hehe). I could take photos of every possible look…or you can get some and see for yourself ^^

Happy shopping!

New Items from Celoe

Guess who’s back! Yeah I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but I have been so busy lately. I haven’t had any real motivation to blog until I heard a new store named Celoe opened up.

After nearly five years, the LeLutka team is taking a large and important step. Introducing Celoe! a new brand, with an incredible team. Combining the established team you have supported over the years, with fresh new talent, Celoe will be able to move forward and in doing so incorporate Mesh and its unlimited possibilities into the future of Second Life fashion. There will be shoes, clothing and accessories all created with a new approach to the movement and fluidity that Mesh can produce with the avatar, these are things that the Celoe team are very excited about, and want you to join them on this journey.

I had downloaded Firestorm-Beta-Mesh viewer earlier this month for a fashion show, so I decided to head down to the store and try on their demos. They have adapted what they call “standard sizing”.

 “How do you know the Standard-Sized shapes are accurate?
‘The numbers we used to create the 5 Standard-Sized shapes were calculated using the results of a survey of over 500 adult human female avatars. The survey information focused on the following measurements: Body Fat, Torso Muscle, Breast Size, Love Handles, Belly Size, Leg Muscle, Butt Size, and Saddle Bags. Because rigged mesh responds to variations in Heights (including Height, Torso Length, and Leg Length) and Widths (including Body Thickness, Shoulder Width, Hip Width, etc.) on its own, these measurements were not included in the survey.'”

You may see some prims out of place and some mismatched color choices…hehe. I was so excited to wear the clothing that I let other details slide a bit ^^

Let’s start with the  Celoe Cairo boots. The demo had small and large sized boots. After trying them both on, I went with the large, because it seemed to look better than the small. I would totally wear these – nice color, great textures, and they fit nicely.

The olive rustic knit sweater from Mon Tissu looks so cute! I would wear all the jackets and sweaters that I demo’ed today I think (only that many would not be able to see me and I would look weird hehe). This was medium size I believe. I think I may be able to wear a size small if my chest wasn’t so big! (but I like them…) Just a quick note – this is rigged mesh, which means that it cannot be edited (unlike regular mesh).

 “Rigged mesh is very different in that once it is attached to your avatar, you cannot reposition or resize the object.  It will fit the way it fits no matter what.  The benefit to wearing rigged mesh objects is that they will bend with your joints and stretch with your height.  This gives a much more natural effect, and helps if you are extra tall or extra short because the object will shrink or stretch to sit correctly on your avatar.  A major limitation of rigged mesh objects is that they do not conform to your body fat or muscle.  This is why designers offering rigged mesh pieces will often include multiple size options and/or alpha layers to hide any parts of the body that may stick through.”

   

The Celoe Rossi jacket and Xui pants were the first items that I tried on. Now this is weird – both the pants and the jacket are size small, yet the Abel belt is a large. At first I had everything in medium, but then I noticed the belt was too small, and my clothing looked a bit frumpy. Then when I dropped my clothing down a size, they looked better, but the belt was still too small. I always thought my waist was pretty small compared to the rest of me…I think my love handles may be a bit on the large side according to their sizes. I wonder if I had mixed the belt with something less bulky, could I had gone down a size…hmm.

As I said before,  I loved the Lyne sweater (also from Celoe). This was I believe a medium. I tried on the small size but my chest is too big. I think everything else fit, though. I’m not a real big fan of these pants though. I wanted to try their wide-legged trousers, but I did not see a demo (darn!). Someone was wearing them at the store and they looked cool. But is it just me or do most of the mesh pants seem bulky? I have seen other mesh pants in blogs, and they look like blocks or just bulked up.

This is the Awe dress from Celoe, size medium (yes most are from this store, but since I had like one or two items that said otherwise I played it safe and named them all). Looking at this picture I see that it broke a tiny bit at the bust, but the large one was just too big.

My friend Mezzo said she loved the hat that they had, which just goes to show that YOU need to get yourself down to Celoe and see what you would like to wear. Hmm… I wonder does SLink have demos of those boots that were so popular several weeks back…
