London Calling

Hi all, hope your weekend is going well?  I managed some time out to log in today to show you this new outfit and I made a new friend who insisted on running me over repeatedly in a sandbox.  I think I kinda startled her when I jumped into the car beside her but we got chatting.  You make friends in unlikely places and situations in SL no?

Outfit today is a mish-mash from Emery and Bland.  Emery’s Irish Blood English Heart outfit is just up my street or should that be alley seeing as I’m in London?  Of course, I am also a huge fan of Morrissey and The Smiths and just so you are not missing out, and for your listening pleasure, here is Morrissey’s awesome song Irish Blood English Heart.

The top that comes with the Emery outfit is actually a sweet little cowl neck in a neutral cream.  I wanted to brighten the look up a little so added this cute Fashion Victim top from Bland.  I can’t say with my hand on my heart that I love everything by Bland, but there are a few pieces there worth looking at.  if you love bold colour then it very well could be the shop for you but I am not a convert (yet) XD

Suit Yourself

Hey there, long time no see eh?  I’ve been away in RL visiting with family and on my return downloaded the new client and I am so unhappy with it.  I’ve been avoiding Windlight as I hated the pictures and the look of all my skins.  Fair enough if you want a nice water shot but for me, it’s been a bloody PITA.  I’ve also had a few days just hanging around in world and although I was thinking of my blog I just needed some time out.  I was alarmed to see a lot of drama on one of the bigger blogs over Cachet’s latest releases, this kinda put me off blogging for a few days and I wanted to ground myself.  I think sometimes the world of pixel fashion goes too far up it’s own arse, this is all supposed to be fun……isn’t it?

So, let me tell you about what I found yesterday over at Bijou.  I bought this uber funky Lazymasculine suit, it was so eyecatching with a sexy/trashy/I wore it to bed last night look that I just had to have it.  I’ll be honest here, this is not a suit that will look classy, believe me, I tried it with a number of different shoes, hair, accessories etc but nothing looked or felt right until I grabbed this hair at Vience.  I don’t want to take this hair off….ever.

You already get a multitude of t-shirts when you buy the suit and as always you get many layers (hoorah).  I opted for a T-shirt by Armidi and while I was there bought the tank in the next picture too.

The tank top works really well with the skirt and gives it another lease of life.  Strangely enough, I’m pretty sure Nylon Pinkney or Toast Bard did a t-shirt like this ages ago, I bought it back in the day when Tableau was a camp-site. Oh and by the way if anyone from the Tableau lot happens to see this – yeah yeah – you got me with your horrible little April Fools joke XD  While I support those creators who have gone over to the Dark Side (joke) I was screaming NOOOOOooooooooooooo when I read that little gem.  Anyone who reads this blog knows I love Armidi, most of my posts feature something by them but I do want somewhere different to shop folks^^

Glam Chick

Hi people, hope you are enjoying your weekend so far? I was rummaging around in FTV yesterday looking for a new dress and came across this amazing little number.  The black and gold geometric stripes of this dress were so eye-catching and took me hurtling back to the mid 70’s & early 80’s.  Not that I remember the mid 70’s but I was very heavily influenced by artists like Bowie and Bryan Ferry in my younger days, not only was the music awesome but these guys had a wonderful sense of style.  Actually, I have to admit now that I was deeply in love with Bryan Ferry he was so suave & sexy and always looked stylin’. Of course he was about 20 years too old for me lol, but these girly crushes when you are a kid make no sense at all do they?  Anyway, maybe this clip from Roxy Music will give you a feel for my meaning here.  Note Jerry Hall in the slinky outfit towards the end, and imagine me pushing her out of the way – he’s MINE!  Not sure about the mustache but heh, it’s Bryan I forgive him.

Anyway, enough waffling & back to the outfit.  The grid was really borked last night when I put this outfit together.  I took the skirt off to adjust the pants layer as they are pretty short and my ao kept showing unwanted thigh.  Sadly, no matter how much I tried, the grid would not put my skirt back on so I was forced to walk around without it.  However, it wasn’t a bad look at all, in fact, it was a smexy little jumpsuit or so I kept telling myself :D  You can also buy this dress in silver and black too – YAY!

ftyhalf3.jpg

I have paired the outfit with heels from Storm Schmooz, big sunglasses and hair by Kin to bring the look back to 2008. We can’t keep reliving our yoofs can we?

Shopping list:

Dress:FTV (Frozen Turquoise Valentine) – FTV Black Geometric, Shoes:Storm Schmooz – Laque black, Glasses:Soreal – Halo Sunglasses Extended SSG010, Hair:Kin – Karei Black, Necklace and Earrings: Slink – Gold Hoop Jewellery, Skin:Pelle Figura – Eva Spice Glam.

Two sides of the same coin

I’m so busy with a few things in both SL and RL at the moment, so will keep this post short.  I know I usually blah on inanely but luckily for you, I don’t have the time:P  My post today is all about Emery’s Autumn Ashes dress – same dress, two different looks.

Look1

emfullhyde2.jpg

emhalfhyde13.jpg

I’ve kept the first look relatively casual by pairing the dress with white jeans and these goregous pumps by Armidi.  To be honest this could very easily double up as an evening look too^^ 

Look2

emfull21.jpg

emhalf3.jpg

Paired with nothing but these awesome boots from Naima, short and very smexy hair by Philotic Energy and some silver funky accessories, this look screams look at meeee.  It’s not an outfit for the faint hearted and if I saw someone flaunting it in this get-up, I’m sure she would be in IM hell from unnatached guys lol.  Wear at own risk :P

The Leader of the Pack…vrrrm vrrrm

LOL ok ok, it’s cheesy of me but doesn’t this pic make you think of that song?  I really hated that song when I was little and it makes me cringe even now but it was too good not to use as the title of this post:P  There is also something a little “Grease2” about these pics which although I loathed that film, the sheer nostalgia is making me grin.  I wonder if Michelle Pheiffer regrets making that film?  Let’s hope so :D

lopbw4.jpg

Anyway, I really wanted to show you Emery’s cool Dolly Rocker leather jacket which I paired with black skinny jeans & a white t-shirt (again, one of Emery’s which you can  wear long on the jacket or undies layer). 

lophalfbw3.jpg

Heheh this jacket is just too cool for school daddyo :P  Your neck gets cold on a bike so I also wore this scarf by Izumiya.  It was part of a set of five but I modified this one by adding a zebra texture to co-ordinate with the black and white theme.  Diamonde’s Funky (tintable) Earrings, a black & white chequered bangle and Caroline’s Blanc Square Diamond Ring finish the look.

A colour pic and credits after the break…………

Step into spring

 It’s official, spring is just around the corner and with the new spring collections appearing all over the grid, it felt right to give you this little offering from KR.  This cute halter has been in Kal’s shop (and in my inventory) for a while now but as it’s been so damned cold I haven’t had the heart to wear it yet.

krfull6.jpg

I’m wearing the top with the flexi prim attachment for a fuller look but as you can see from the pic below, the halter looks just as good, if not better without it.  I didn’t have time to take a close-up of the textures or the back where there is a cute tie at the neck but believe me, it looks awesome and I can see myself wearing this a lot!

krful4.jpg

I teamed the top with G.L.A.M.’s Denim White Wash capris and Armidi’s Vidalia Pumps, I so wanted to wear Armidi’s new spring shoes but alas, my budget is low this month, so I have to wait (pout).

Monday Moods

 I’ve had a busy weekend so Monday came too soon, you ever feel that you somehow missed your weekend?  Today I wanted to rewind back to Sunday and opted for something relaxed, soft and feminine.

 fullcardi.jpg

Yesterday I found this fab little sweater at KUROTSUBAKI, it moves so sweetly with it’s four prim attachments and drapes so softly making it soothing to the eye which is what I needed after a fractious day at work.

uppercardi2.jpg

These gloves were a freebie find at IZUMYA a month or so ago, you can find some cute freebies there.  The hair I found at The Abyss which I discovered through reading Sophia Gray’s blog on some boots she bought there.  I love the texturing of this hair, it works so well in black.  I’ve been finding a lot of black hair at the moment seems to lose it’s definition and look like a black blob or worse, look like it belongs to a Lego person, so I appreciate this one a lot^^

halfcardi.jpg

The jewellery doesn’t co-ordinate with the colours of the outfit but it gives a nice soft contrast and sometimes if you colour match everything an outfit can look too contrived, but that’s just my stupid opinion lol and prolly an excuse not to have tried harder :P

Wake me up before you go go…..

Heheheh hands up who remembers that old Wham! classic?  This T-shirt from Emery is based on the Katherine Hamnett T-shirts which Wham adopted, on the success of these she later created Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s Relax t-shirts.  Katherine has revived the Choose Life t’s and they are on sale again today….yay! 

fullcl1.jpg

Now I didn’t want to mention the following nasty business as this is not a political blog, but, before I get my ass kicked all over SL, this t-shirt, despite what some people think, is notfor the Pro-Life cause.  It was created for a Buddhist exhibition.  The anti-abortion lobby tried to appropriate the use of the slogan but Katherine Hamnett has since reclaimed it.

If you would like to know Katherine’s real meaning for Choose Life, you can read it from her site here…   http://www.katharinehamnett.com/Protest-and-Survive/Choose-Life-T-Shirt//

OK so back to the goods^^  I had a devil of a job with the prim on this leather skirt by SWA.  Hopefully, it’s not too obvious that I’d stand a better chance of fixing a hole in my roof than a prim attachment lol.  I wore Armidi’s metallic tights in white as I can’t bring myself to go bare legged in winter, even in SL :P

uppercl2.jpg

The chunky chain necklace is so right for this outfit, you could buy these in solid colours and my friends and I would all be swapping, depending on our outfits lol.  I wore some funky orange earrings, bangles and shoes to tie up with the orange in the necklace and to help break up the black and white.

Snug in Snakeskin

I stopped by Muism today and the first thing I spotted was this divine snakeskin jacket, It’s so beautiful I nearly peed myself.  Thankfully no need for the Tenor Lady just yet, my bladder control is to be commended. 

snakefull2.jpg

The jacket comes with a hoodie option too, and it looks great but I wanted a more dressy feel to it so left the hood off.  I teamed the jacket with a gold tunic and leggings from Armidi to add some richness.  Keeping to the reptillian theme I am wearing Armidi’s brown crocodile Vidalia Pumps. 

snakeupper1.jpg

The accessories are the Boho set from Earthtones, the sunglasses are Armidi’s Fi Umo glasses.

This hair is just the cutest, I love it to bits, I got it today as a freebie (dollarbie) from ETD and it is aptly named “Lovely”.

The Bold & the Beautiful….

I’ve been lurking in LeeZu Baxters for a day or two now, my eye kept being drawn to the Revolution Mo outfit.  It’s striking that’s for sure and bold to boot.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted it as at first, to me, it was a confusing piece.  Then yesterday eureeka -I got it (I bought it too ;p), I understood Leezu’s outfit and the more I played, the more I loved it.

 fullcoat3.jpg

 This daring use of colour and the abstract quilting patterns of the coat make it so unique, abstract art, bold patterns and colour is gonna be big this year.  I chose to team the coat with a pair of red ankle boots, black skinny jeans and a red shirt.  What is great about the coat is you can pick any of the many colours and use that as your accent colour, it’s so diverse.

This outfit is one of the other combinations, and at first it kinda just hits you with a WTH, but the more you look, the more it grows on you, well for me it did lol.  It’s edgy and fun and the transparent skirt is awesome.  I had to keep accessories down to a minimum here as the dress really doesn’t need a lot.  I wore red earrings and bronze wedge heels to co-ordinate.
