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…….

Summer Breeze

The sun was shining through my window at work today, the office was warm and my mind lazily drifted, imagining the barmy summer evenings yet to come.  Then it bloody rained.  Typical huh?  However, we have SL don’t we?  So sod it, summer has come early.  I’m thinking evening BBQ, a cold glass of Chardonnay or maybe some Margheritas with plenty of salt on the rim of the glass – roll on summer!

I’ve had this !_Ce-Cubic effect skirt for some months now and never had the chance to wear it, it’s been hanging pathetically in my virtual wardrobe just waiting for the right top to compliment it.  I was trying some tops out and found this one in my freebie folder, it’s part of an old freebie set from <3 Cupcakes.  I’m not even sure if those freebie sets are still available :(  It was instant love when I put it on, the print is adorable.

Yet again, I opted for Boho style jewellery, I wanted the top to do the talking rather than the accessories.  I’m still waiting to get those damn new shoes from Armidi but my trusty Armidi wedge heels came to the rescue.

 So a short post from me tonight – it’s Friday and I see a glass of wine (or 3) with my name on it and perhaps a live gig in SL with my trusty mate^^

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!

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.

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!

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).

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”.
