Vancouver Frost #46

I was doing a little bit of exploring around the grid and came across this highly adorable sim called Let It Snow! It’s a great place to go to mingle with other avis, ski, use as a backdrop for photos or just relax and take in the creative scenery.  And with a name like “Let It Snow!”, you can’t help but to become inspired to create a look that complements the sim’s theme…..at least I can’t. So of course I got busy pulling this look together. I want to start off with Reign’s Kaylee booties that come with these thigh high socks. I’m not sure if you’ve ever shopped online for thigh high socks but I have and it wasn’t a fun task at all. I wasted a lot of lindens for stuff that looked great in the ads and then look like garbage on my avi’s body. Well not the Kaylee booties.

The designers/creators over at Reign definitely are masters of their craft and made a superb product. You’re getting two versions in one….the bootie by it’s self and the version with the socks attached to the bootie which I’m wearing below. The socks only come in white and it would be really awesome if they decide to update this boot with a color change hud for the socks. Nonetheless, you will not be disappointed with your purchase of the Kaylee bootie. Another high note I want to mention is this hair/hat combo from !Oleander. I know I say this in almost every single post but I love this hair! I was searching for hairs with beanies but nothing I came across got me excited until I came across Willow. This style is exactly what I envisioned in my head. I really think this look came together well and I highly suggest you guys stop by the beautiful snow-filled sim with your loved ones as soon as time permits.

Cherry Pie #44

Hey loves! This lingerie set is a new release from SKIN which is featured in their main store. Nina comes in an array of colors and is definitely made with the curvy avi in mind. The lace detailing in the bra & crotch area is super sexy as well as the waist high thong straps and butterfly design in the back.  I’m not sure if you guys have noticed but I’ve really been feeling the read hair lately and this two-toned beauty comes from Little Bones as a free gift for all group members. Queen includes about 5 or 6 color combos so I would highly recommend picking this gift up at the main store.

The Witching Hour #43

Happy Halloween loves! I’ve been gone without a trace for an entire week due to RL work and I’m super backed up on looks I wanted to get out to you during the week. I picked up this super cute dress last week from Indented which is currently featured at The Dressing Room. I believe this is a bi-weekly event but I’m not 100% sure since I can’t find any information about the dates. I would suggest you drop whatever it is you’re doing right now to go and pick up this dress! It’s well worth the L$70 I paid for it. No ladies and gents, that is not a typo….this beautiful dress was only L$70. Now you see why I highly suggest you stop whatever it is you’re doing to pick up this dress! I really don’t want you to miss out.

Reese is a very versatile dress in my opinion. You can pair her with a nice pair of stilettos, a cute charm bracelet and a nice updo or long sleek straight hairstyle for a very elegant and classic look that would be great for a romantic date night with your boo thang. Or you can do what I did and create a look that’s great for fantasy role play. I kept my look very conservative because I was only checking out a few sims for future blog posts and wanted to respect the dress codes but you could definitely add some wings, elves ears or whatever else your heart desire to create an awesome look. Well here I am chat typing away when I told myself to keep this post brief. Anywho, I hope you guys enjoy this look and stay on the lookout for the next post!

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.

Dark Raven #40

Hey loves! I’m back with another post before I log back into the real world :(. In this post I’m wearing J A I R A J‘s sweater/fitted skirt now available at The Showroom. The top is applier based while the fitted skirt is 100% mesh and she comes in 5 colors (wearing navy). I had fun with this style because I had this vision in my mind what the hair should look like and the makeup and it’s 100% on point with what I envisioned. I picked up the hair from Vanity Hair (new favorite hair store) and I was really impressed with all the color options you get with the hud. I haven’t tried the hair-base that is supposed to go with the hair because I’m very partial to my Gaja & Just Magnetized bases but I will test it out very soon. Anywho, I hope you enjoy the styling and I can’t wait for you guys to see what I come up with next week! ❤

Start Of Something Good #39

Hey loves! Let’s get right into it. This dress! This dress!!!! O-M-G I’m in looooooove! I went on a little shopping spree last weekend and I found this beauty at Bomshie‘s main store. You guys, there are so many treasures in that store it’s unbelievable. The craftsmanship of this dress is impeccable. The detailing with the seams and creases…..this dress looks so realistic to me. If I remember correctly, this dress only comes in the color shown but it’s a beautiful color that will compliment an array of skin tones. This dress can definitely hold it’s own and don’t really need an accessories but what fun would that be for a blogger?!? I paired her with the Tiana jewelry set from GeWunjo (earrings, necklace & bracelet) along with the Paula Belly Chain which will be available for purchase at Penumbra A/W Fashion week 2015 (starting October 17th). And I have to touch on these bad ass heels from N-Core….guys, I fell in love at first sight with these heels. The Stiletto Metal Cap heels comes in a fatpack with an array of colors to choose from with both gold or silver metal cap options. For the price, these are a steal and everyone should pick up a pair.

P.S. I will update this post with the landmark for Penumbra once available.
