1000 Miles

For Advent, Entice sure didn’t stick to a holiday theme on their Advent calendar, for which I’m grateful.  After a few years here you tend to have enough Christmas outfits to last you a lifetime.  This was their Day 1 gift.

Sizes include classic rigged mesh, and fitmesh for classic, Lara, Physique, Hourglass, TMP, Curvy, Fine, Venus, Isis, Freya, and eBody.

Naomi Festival

Today I’m wearing a daring gown with sort of a medieval feel, although you might be burned as a witch for displaying so much skin in medieval times!

It only comes in a one-size-fits-all fitmesh so the fit is not perfect for Lara, although it’s not too bad.  And while I don’t mind the inability to wear undies with it, it bothers me a bit to have my areolae visible in a gown (although Aeon thinks it’s very sexy) 🙂

A number of months ago a store named [Red Room] closed its in-world store.  I used to visit there regularly looking for midnight mania boards, which were always worthwhile.  They are still on marketplace, but their in-world store link is very out of date.

While cleaning up my inventory (a never-ending task!) I came across an unopened box from them!  I opened it up and found this wonderful outfit!

The top and skirt are separates, and include fitmesh sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Physique, eBody, TMP, Curvy, and Fine.  Also included are HUDs for both the top and the skirt with 9 colors for the top and 11 colors for the skirt!

And this is another tricky skirt to wear due to the open strappy nature of it.  I have a nude modesty patch for situations like this, and that may be your best approach.  Or you could just be daring 🙂

Réalta

Kerryth at Spyralle has a wonderful treat.  Réalta was originally offered for the Team Diabetes Winter Showcase, which has now passed by, but it’s now available for purchase in the Spyralle main store!

Réalta comes in the standard five rigged mesh sizes, plus fitmesh for the standard body and for Physique and Hourglass bodies only.  That said, I had no problem using the standard fitmesh on my Lara with the appropriate use of alpha zones.  I LOVE this gown!  Long mesh gowns are always a chore to dance in, but this one is still such a happiness!

Kerryth has five beautiful textures for Réalta.  I loved them so much I couldn’t pick just one to blog, but you’ll have to wait until next week to see the others!  Stop by Spyralle, and look back here next week to see the other textures!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Parliyah Top

I’ve told you before I’m a sucker for things laced like corsets.  Among other things, I have a corset tail, I recently picked up my corset laced jeans, and looking through my unopened folder today, I came across this corset laced top!  Yay!

This was a free gift at the Holiday Shop & Hop I wrote about the other day.  It’s only in fitmesh for Lara.  It also has a HUD allowing you to color the ribbons and metal.  A very nice little giftie from a new-to-me creator.

A moment of reflection

Something old for the new… something new for the old.  I haven’t posted a lot over the last two weeks, travel for the holidays, getting ready for the new term and some business-related travel.  It’s a crazy time… but it’s also an important one.   The opening of the year is always a bit of a good time for some reflection.

  • Petite Mort — Elona Sweater Dress with lace skirt
  • Mesh AgencyFaith Boots with top socks
  • !!smesh — Star choker and ankle bracelets
  • DRDMetal Heart Vintage Lounge pose

Elona from Petite Mort is not a new release, but it is new to me, thanks to a wonderful Christmas gift from my lovely Blue, complemented by some beautiful new boots from my sweet mamma Jaz!  Elona features a beautiful cable-knit sweater available in 10 lovely earthy colours and an attached white lacey skirt.  It comes fit for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Venus, Freya, and Isis, and SLink Physique and Hourglass!

My boots are Faith from Mesh Agency, and they are fantastic.  They come in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Physique and Hourglass, as well as a resizable unrigged version.  What’s best is a beautiful colour HUD, with fifty choices of boot colour, fifteen sock colours, and four different metal detail choices!

You know, reading a lot of fashion blogs, I’m well aware that there’s a lot of unhappiness at a dearth of fitmesh sizes for Belleza bodies.  I’m so happy to share two wonderful products that have not forgotten Belleza!

My wonderful friends… thank you for being with me through 2017.  I wish us all a wonderful 2018… may it be a year of happy change, a year of growth, a year of peace and wonder.  As a wise man once said, “may it be a damn sight better than the last one”.  Keep dancing, keep laughing, keep loving.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

While at the Holiday Shop & Hop event the other day, I came across this swimsuit.  At the event, the fatpack containing 14 colors was discounted from L$550 to only L$300.  I had to get it.

It’s only sized for Maitreya Lara. And while it’s a swimsuit, it’s sort of organic enough to be used as the basis for something interesting like an SF outfit or something.

The fit is well done, although with some really skimpy things like this, wearing it at a G-rated sim would have to be discouraged 🙂

Holiday Shop & Hop

This is the last day of the Shop & Hop event!  If you haven’t been there, you should run over as quickly as possible.  There are a number of FREE gifts from some of the best designers in SL just waiting for you, five of which I’m showing you today!

First up are these fab thigh boots.  They come in fits for Lara, Hourglass, and Physique, and include a four color HUD with two shades in neutral, and a green and a red.  The buckles at the back are well done, and you can see them at the end of the post.

Next up, the tied top comes with fitmesh sizes for Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, and Hourglass.  It also has a HUD to allow color change of the fabric, laces, and metal grommets, with get this!  35 colors for the fabric, 35 colors for the laces, and 7 metals for the grommets!  What an awesome gift!

As a redhead, I tend to use neutral makeup options, and since I got my new mesh head, I’ve been looking around for a neutral lippy similar to what I wore with my system head.  The ones that came with the mesh head are not quiet dark enough for my liking.  So I was happy to find a lippy in neutrals as a gift at the event.  It’s a tiny bit too dark, but it’s far better then the ones I’ve been wearing recently.  Included in the pack are three shades in the matte shown here, and a gloss version of each too.  Also included is the matching eyeshadow.  It comes with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, and also on system tattoo layers.

And what can I say about this hairstyle?  It’s a fabulously generous gift, with four different rigged mesh options: the normal hair, a “breeze” version where there is some movement in your hair, a materials enabled version that reflects the light, and one with both the breeze and materials enabled (shown).  It has two HUDs one offering solid colors and the other ombrés, with 56 colors each ranging from dark as night brunette to silvery white, and all the colors in beween!  That’s 112 colors girls!  WOW!  Now, having said that, it comes with a hair band with two snowflakes on it, but fortunately, the hairstyle is modify.  So with some minimal building skills you can hide the hair band and snowflakes by texturing them 100% transparent, letting you wear the hair all year round instead of just for the holidays.  Don’t forget to take a backup if you’re going to try this, just in case you mess it up.

Lastly, the necklace I’m wearing is also one of four gifts on offer from this designer.  It has fits for Lara, Slink, and classic avatars, which is really nice.  It also has a HUD that allows you to select one of four designs for the middle of the coin, and one of six metal textures.

And finally, here’s an over the shoulder shot so you can see the boot buckles.

Whew!  I’m pooped after writing all that!  See you tomorrow xoxo

No More Leggings

Another Entice Advent calender giftie today!

The top and the leggings are separates and come in a plain and lace top, and plain and fabric textured leggings.  Sizes include fitmesh for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Physique, and Hourglass.  These are pretty green, but there are a range of more muted color available at the store.

Oh and Happy New Year!
