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^^

Shopping list after the break…….

Street Style

 I was still in an urban mood this weekend and yes, I’m still in my beloved sneakers only this time in yellow XD .  My post today is however, not focused on my clothes but this awesome little vintage Lambretto Scooter made by Japaka Jun of the Team Madaka Garage.  I’ve been zipping around on it all weekend and it is sooo much fun.

Before I go into detail, you have to know one very, very important thing, you can change the colour of the body parts!  YES!  As well as operating as a functional mode of transport, your scooter can become a fashion accessory too – YAY!  There are seven scooters available,  all based on Lambrettos and Vispas (I’m sure I don’t have to give you the RL names these scooters are based on^^).  Each have been crafted with love and a skill seldom seen in SL, they are a sheer joy and you will have a very hard time choosing one….trust me.

I’ve changed the upper body to red here – it’s my fave look for this scooter but you can also change the seat colour and the lower body colours too so the variety is endless.  One of the Vispas has an add-on pack full of mirrors and a spare tyre so you can go for the full-on Mod look or appear to have just ridden off the set of Quadrophenia.

The detail on this scooter is really lovely, I spent ages just looking at it before even getting on the damn thing.  It rides like a dream too and has four gears, everything is hud operated, just click on the bike for a pull down menu, make your changes, turn the engine on and off you go…….. wheeeeeeeee.

And not only do we have magnificent scooters – remember these little cars?  Yes, you too can have your very own bubble car or “Feet” as this one is known.  My old friend Dave used to have one of these and we would rib him about it constantly.  He would say to me “one day, you will want one of these, they will be a classic”  I see so few of them on the road now, and he was right, I always want one when I see them lol.  I didn’t buy one of these babies however, as my avatar is a little too tall and I wanted a scooter so badly.

Shopping list and clothing close-up after the break……………

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

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).

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.

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.

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.

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”.

Sophisticate

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?

 blog5newfull.jpg

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

Boho vs Rock

I saw this beautiful sculptie leather jacket at !_Ce_Cubic effect a little while ago and today I finally bought it.  I couldn’t wait to put it on but when it came to adjusting it I panicked lol.  I’m nervous of editing prims at the best of times and sculpties put the fear in me :P  Needless to say, I contacted Mirai Jun the creator and politely explained that I was a numpty and she (actually, had to come back and edit this as just found out that Mirai is a guy, my bad) kindly offered to edit it for me, what a sweetheart!

I love the texturing, my pictures do not do it justice believe me, go and take a look for yourselves, you won’t be sorry and it’s excellent value for money.
