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.

Day In & Day Out #36

Hey loves, so I’m back with another look featuring LaVian & Co. Ladies and gents, I CANNOT say enough nice things about this designer’s style. I’m a girl that loves color…..loud vibrant colors at that and LaVian & Co. never disappoints. I actually get excited when I see their ad or put on one of their outfits and try on all of the different color/pattern options that are available per outfit. The dress I’m wearing is the Essentials Day In and Day Out dress and I loooooooove her! She’s basically a one piece mesh dress that consists of a sleeveless turtleneck tunic along with a mini jean skirt. This is super cute guys!! This dress also comes with a HUD that has 16 different pattern options for the top.

*Also, I wanted to note that I had to take off my Maitreya mesh body in order to fit the CO57 Misfit boots properly.

Autumn Fever

Hey there beautiful ones!! It’s been a long week for me RL wise and I am soooo glad the weekend is finally here. Are you guys as excited about autumn finally being here as I am?! The leaves on trees will start to change colors soon, chilly weather is on the horizon (snuggle weather!), we’ll be able to find pumpkin spiced anything a lot easier (lol) and fashion begins to evolve yet again :). I love fall colors and I just noticed that I’ve blogged this deep green/orange color combination twice in a row (that’s completely a coincidence). Anywho, lets jump into the look I’ve created for you. I’m wearing the Essentials Waterfall dress from LAVIAN. This is the cutest little dress guys and it comes with a hud with like 20-30 different colors to choose from. You’re given color/pattern options for the top half of the dress as well as separate color options for the bottom portion of this dress….it’s very versatile which I love. I paired this dress with Maitreya’s Wool Cardigan (color is Turbulence).
