Short ‘n’ Sweet

I popped over to Vette’s Boutique the other day after seeing it blogged a few times on iheartsl.  I’m so glad I did, Vette’s style is simple yet so cool and she has a European flavour to her work that well, being a Brit really appeals to me^^   


I’m wearing the Faye outfit which I absolutely lurve, it’s simplicity at it’s best.  The outfit comes with some cute black leggings which I decided not to wear as I’m finally getting to grips over bearing my legs :P  Just for fun I added Armidi’s ankle boots but why they look so pixelated in this pic is anyone’s guess – I still have a lot to learn about SL photography lol.


The detailing on this shirt is wonderful and I’m really loving the rouched effect which is entirely on the texture and not made of prims so it helps lessen the lag somewhat. 


Finally, I opted for an old fave when it comes to accessories, Shiny Things Recycled Jewellery which IMHO is just too cute for words.  I am also sporting some fun safety pin earrings from Spica – ouch!

But baby it’s cold outside…..

It’s been minus 2 today, the frost is still on the ground outside and I’m hungover.  Feeling like hell on legs always makes me want to dress in something soft and comforting, this mini sweater-dress from Nyte’N’Day was perfect.  It’s a shame that in real life, I’m still in my jim-jams :p


I toyed with having bare legs, but it’s too cold and goosebumps are a terrible look, a look I’d rather not share.  G.L.A.M.’s Tintable Metallic Tights came to the rescue and I teamed them with boots from Slink


The skin is by Kryptonia Paperdoll at Splashing Doll and was a freebie but Kryptonia informed me that this particular skin (Mailin) isn’t free anymore, However it only costs L$275!  While you are there check out some of the other shops, there is also a freebie shop.  I couldn’t check it out as the grid hates me today, tp’s ended in me crashing and when I relogged, my prims wouldn’t rez, maps wouldn’t work and yada yada yada.

Hot Pink Saturday

Thank my lucky stars it’s Saturday, it’s been a long week.  I don’t know about you girls but this gal is ready to let her hair down.  As I promised yesterday, here is more on Kal Rau’s clothing at KR.  I don’t usually blog a whole outfit, I like to mix and match my clothes but how could I resist this t-shirt and the bermuda pants together? I didn’t have time to do a close up of these pants, but they are so pretty, and the cuff details are stunning.


I loved the hot pink colours in this black T-shirt, and to bring them out, I paired it with pink accessories and a new skin curtesy of Fleur.  I was thrilled to get a free skin at Fleur, simply by being a member of Fleur Updates.  For those of you who don’t know, join the group and look for the latest notice, it will give you details of a free shop card worth L$500 to spend at Fleur…. YAAAY!  This offer will only last a week, so get going!


The belt is from Fancy Shmancy.  You may notice I have problems with prim belts O.o  I always forget to make a shape for when I wear tight skirts, so my hips are constantly being resized, this makes belt wearing a hideous nightmare.

Ever have one of those Sophia Loren days?  OK, OK so I’m pretty much flat chested and my Brit accent is a far cry from the sultry tones of our Sophia but hey, my mic is broken, whose to know?


The coat (as I’m sure you all know) is by Muism, I totally want one in RL, but in SL with my constantly moving AO it gave revealing & unflattering glances of my bum, and well, it didn’t look good.  However, I can put up with that, and if it really gets you down,  a workaround is coming up…… read the next page to see how.


These gorgeous glasses are from KR by Kal Rau, I want to blog about him in my next post, all I can say is, I look forward to seeing more by him, right now he designs mainly for men but has a few women’s pieces too.  Kal also happens to be very friendly and approachable and that in itself is a plus in my book.  Psssst… Kal more womens clothes…. please?  :P

Glamorous Greys


Today is a grey day but that doesn’t have to mean grey isn’t glamorous girls, grey is very hot right now.  For my first post at Hoi Poloi, I wanted to bring you a little something different.  The dress is by Sh Oluja at Sheer, you may know her for her wonderful stockings and tights but she does these cute little dresses too.  It’s also worth mentioning that these dresses come in all layers so you can accessorize like mad if that is your bag (pun intended :P)   


I’ll try to provide a shopping list for you, still working on the mechanics of blog writing, so pls bear with me, it’s a learning curve for me lol
