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.

Alright beautiful ones….I kinda lied in my previous post when I said I was paying tribute to the end of summer with the End of Summer post. But it really isn’t my fault! I received a blogger package from Skin and this extremely sexy bathing suit, which is appropriately named Adore, was waiting for me to try her on. When I put her on, I just knew I had to blog it right then and there so here we are. I love, love, LOVE this sexy swimsuit with the peek-a-boo nipples!! And since this IS a Skin creation that we’re talking about here, I don’t have to tell you how the craftsmanship of this bathing suit is on point. No need to worry about the seams not lining up (serious pet peeve of mine) or the color of the top half being off slightly different from the bottom half. You can tell this designer makes an effort to produce high quality clothes. Adore comes in 6 beautiful colors so I would suggest picking this bathing suit up in each color.
