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! ❤

You Don’t Want These Problems #33

Hey loves, I’m back with another quick post to show off this bad ass tattoo I just recently purchased from Isuka. I have a bit of a soft spot for Sugar Skulls, so when I saw the Closer tattoo, I knew I needed to have it. Shortly after purchasing, I received an IM from the designer letting me know she found an issue with the tattoo and that she was in the process of correcting it and will send me a new one. Not only did she apologize for the inconvenience of having to wait for the updated tattoo but she also offered me any other tattoo in the store for free!! Now that’s what I call excellent customer service. I declined her offer for the free tattoo because I had already picked up 3 free tattoos she was giving away in the store but the though of her really going above and beyond for her customers is very rare in general but especially in Second Life in my honest opinion. I’m also impressed with the details of her tattoos. There are no issues with seams matching correctly and there are applier options for mesh bodies and Slink hands. I would highly recommend shopping at Isuka for your next tattoo purchase.

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.
