Picture Perfect #42

Hey loves! I’m back with another look that I am sooooo in love with. Typically, I don’t shop at discount stores in SL because I felt like everyone would be rocking the same outfit around the grid but I broke my own rule and decided to do a little retail therapy at the fi*Friday event and I’m very glad I did! You definitely can’t beat the prices where everything is for sale for L$55. I also steered clear from these types of discount events because I figured most of the items would be of poor quality but I was pleasantly surprised (and impressed) by some of the items I saw and purchased. I know you know I killed my virtual pocket book right? Anywho, I picked up this cute little two piece set from L’Armoire and I’m really digging it. The quality of the craftsmanship is decent with no major flaws except a slight issue with the cutout skirt panel aligning with the skirt layer but you can’t really fault the designer for that. And for only L$55 for the set, it’s still a great buy in my book. This is a fun skirt set and I wanted to add an element of bad-assness (I made that word up) so I added a tattoo for more of the bad girl image I was going for.

Oh, and how could I forget….I was surfing around on marketplace and found these cool lip piercings from PUNCH that can be customized. You have the option to show 1, 2 or 3 piercings, remove the shadows, brighten the metals and there are about 12 metal options to choose from. The entire set is hud driven which is awesome and I’m not going to spoil it by telling you the price. You’ll have to hit the link below to find out for yourself. But I will say this….you’ll be very pleased and you’ll definitely get your monies worth. I feel like Rihanna would totally rock this fit in RL LOL. What do you guys think?

Beautiful Mistake #41

Hey my loves! As you can see, I’ve been switching things up a bit on my blog. I’ve changed the theme, sorta messed with the layout and I have a few more things I’ll be incorporating in the weeks to come. My mind is constantly running in overdrive thinking on ways to improve the blog for you guys. I do hope you like the changes I’ve made so far and I’d love to hear your feedback be it good or bad. With that being said, lets get into the look below.

I’m wearing LaVian’s Flying Without Wings dress and I LOVE this dress! The designers absolutely know how to craft very sophisticated yet sexy dresses and this dress is no exception. This dress fit my Maitreya Lara body almost perfectly. Of course I needed to adjust the alpha layers on the Lara hud due to the fact this dress is 100% mesh but there was no need for me to physically adjust my shape (huge plus). LaVian is definitely the master of textures….you guys can see what I’m talking about from the pictures. I’m never disappointed when I put on an outfit from this designer. The dress has such a beautiful and rich colored pattern that I really didn’t have to put too much work into accessorizing the outfit. I opted for a simple necklace from Zenith along with a pair of super high spiked stilettos also from LaVian.

She Earned It

Hello loves! So yesterday, was the grand opening of Oro and I was feeling a little bit inspired by Bollywood for some odd reason and wanted an outfit to semi reflect that style.  And with me being the person I am, I was late and had to hurry to put an outfit together. Your girl has been working on a very strict SL budget this week so I had to make due with what I had and dig deep into my inventory to pull off my vision and I must say that my inventory is the real MVP because I was very pleased with what I came up with. Of course I couldn’t attend an Oro grand opening without rocking something from the store, so I opted for this really cute cutout halter top in the color Orange Juice and I paired it with a 100% mesh skirt from Tetra. Now loves, I’m going to be very honest with you guys as I do always. I love this skirt (especially the crease detailing and that live olive color) but it was very difficult for me to deal with as far as fitting my body. My avi is pretty petite (I usually wear mesh in either a size S or XS) and I STILL had to alter my shape to fit the skirt properly AND use a static pose the entire time at the party in order to avoid body parts sticking through the skirt. This could definitely be a negative for a person that wouldn’t consider altering their shape but if you don’t mind tweaking your shape (anything for fashion!), I would highly recommend purchasing this skirt.

So….this You’re Cool hair from Milk (now known as Besom) seems to be in hot demand but unbeknownst to me, it’s not available inworld anymore. I didn’t realize this until I was contacted by quite a few people who really want this hair. I ended up leaving a notecard with the creator inquiring about possibly bringing this hair back. I haven’t heard back from her yet but once I do, I will update this post and also my facebook with her response. In the meantime, you can try Besom’s Piled Up Bun as an alternative. The Piled Up Bun (shown below) will still work well with Gaja‘s baby hairbase.

Go Go 2.0

Hello loves! I’m back with a cute and funky look I was inspired to create while watching Kill Bill. I was watching Go Go’s and Black Mamba’s fight scene and I started to wonder what Go Go would have been like if she had lived. She was a bad ass assassin and of course all bad ass female assassins own a great pair of thigh high boots! So I dug in my inventory and pulled out my favorite boots…my Maitreya Thigh high boots. Ladies, if you do not have a pair of black thigh high boots in your inventory, you MUST go out and get a pair. Fall/Winter is on the way and thigh high boots are a staple for this time of year. What else do you think of when you think about bad ass female assassins? A sexy dress. At least I do, so I opted for PR Clothing‘s very sexy Amanda Showout Mini which has a mile high slit right on the thigh. That’s definitely a great way to distract your target.I tied the outfit together with accessories that of reminded me of a few of the other female characters from the movie and…vola! What do you guys think about my interpretation?
