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.

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!

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.

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.

All About The Labels

Hey loves, so I’m pushing this post out super late due to the fact I passed out in the middle of putting this outfit together LOL. The goal was to have two posts completed tonight but won’t happen tonight unfortunately. Anywho, I did a wee bit of damage at Uber today and picked up a load of stuff. I’m the kind of girl who loves versatility and Ryvolter definitely delivered that with the Giane Ribbed Knit collection that was released at the event. I picked up the entire collection in navy and I’m very happy with the purchases. Here I’m wearing the knit turtleneck along with the knit pants.  I really love how I can style the outfit with just the dress and pants for a very chic minimalist look, or opt for layering and accessorizing without the completed look being too overwhelming. The Giane collection will still shine through as the star of your ensemble.

Pretty In Pink

Happy Sunday beautiful people! Ok, so I adore this look. It’s that simple folks LOL. This was a pretty simple look I put together with the focus being this bad ass tattoo from Inhale. I don’t think this tattoo is actually “new”, they’ve just updated it to include appliers for Omega, Belleza, Physique and TMP which is awesome! You can pick up this tattoo and a few of their other popular tattoos at The Showroom. And can you believe I jumped out of my comfort zone and opted for blonde hair? I’m gonna be a raven haired chick til the day I die but I have to admit that I’m feeling the blonde with this look. What do you guys think?

Namaste

Hello once again my beautiful people! While it has been great week on the grid for fashion events, I have to say that there are a lot of awesome and really cheap finds on Marketplace. If you have some time to surf, I suggest checking out the makeup section first. You can find A LOT of makeup that is dirt cheap or free which is what I did for this look. Sometimes you don’t need a ton of accessories to bring a look together. Adding eyeliner here, lipstick/gloss there and switch up your eyebrows. Those small additions really can bring a new look together for you without a ton of effort. I have to say I really love this sexy little dress from Bomshie which was only L75 at the Phat Fashion Fair and these super cute heels with a TON of color options from Moda (L99 on marketplace). ❤
