Ride On

I got me some horses – to pose with at least.

This look started with the lower section, drawing inspiration from these unusual trousers from LeLutka. The pants are hipster style with exaggerated side pockets that hang wide from the body, contrasting against the skinny legs. There are leather straps of various lengths that accentuate the excess, contrasting in colour with metallic hoops decorating the lengths. The pants are sold in very few shades and are a little pricey for a single pair, but I do like that they’re something different which was what ultimately convinced me to part with my Lindens.

Pink and Glitter

With the Happy Holidays Hunt kicking off the other day I thought it might be appropriate to use a few of the hunt items in this styling. The hunt runs until the end of the month with each item costing just L$10; there are plenty of great items on offer so despite the fact that you don’t always know exactly what you’re getting, each small investment is well worth your while.

I love clothing that looks comfortable, and this hunt sweater from aRAWRa certainly fits that criteria. An excess of material falls in soft folds around the neck and waist, pooled cuffs to the wrists with the wool drawn tight across the chest and down the arms. You could do something as simple as pair this up with a belt and jeans and be good to go, the boat neckline giving an effortlessly sexy finish to your ensemble. Read the rest of this entry »

Homecoming

*Whistles innocently and slips back in, closing the door soundlessly behind her*

LeLutka isn’t somewhere I shop too frequently. Historically that’s because of the horrendous lag I always experience on the sim, but I have to say that their new build seems far more friendly to the busy shopper and I’ve found myself there more and more of late. I spotted this pretty mac and couldn’t resist – it’s the sort of coat you can wear through the seasons, and it does sit well over whatever else you might have on. Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes it doesn’t take very much to make an impact.

There’s a definite ‘less is more’ feel to this styling, based around this fabulous dress top I picked up from Emery. There are so many colourful and interesting pieces to be found in sunami Beck’s store, so when you shop there you’re bound to find a few things to catch your eye. This is a recent favourite, the shift running long enough to work as a dress (a little resize may be required) or cropped a little to be worn with leggings and jeans if you prefer. It’s pieced together very well for continuation of the pattern across the prim, although the sleeves didn’t sit quite as intended on my shape. You can stretch and scale but I think they’re intended for a slighter figure to show their full draped form, so I settled for the angular cap sleeves over my shoulders which I think look just as good.

Liquorice

It just felt like a grey day.

I used this new top from Ingenue as a base for the style. Available in the usual plethora of shades, Aquallerist is a stylish and feminine piece perfect for winter wear. With soft cowl neck draping down to the front, it also features puffed sleeves that close tight around the wrists, further detailed with a gradient effect on the edging that darkens the tone. This does crop right at the waist so may leave some flesh showing with many of the lower-waist skirt and trouser designs – I’ve fended that off here by popping on a long tank from Jane. As all colours of this top are free, you may want to pick up a few tones while you’re there. Read the rest of this entry »

Srsly… GTFO

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 2:27 pm by Fayne Khandr

For a boot that’s bang on-trend look no further than Gos’s new GTFO boot, the ultimate in style for this season.

Calf-high for a look that will work with just about anything in your wardrobe, GTFO is military inspired with an edge about it that lends itself to all kinds of stylings. I’m wearing the boot in stone, a distressed suede with contrasting leather straps; there are 8 colours in all, with the textures chosen to match the feel of the boot, from pristine leather to more scuffed and worn versions in tones ranging from a rugged khaki to feminine icy white. You can buy single boots and wear as shown or opt for the various fatpacks which allow you to colour pick buckle and leather, customising to suit your personal taste. As usual, the boots are crafted to the highest standard with immense detail in everything from the scuff marks to the stitched surrounds, the subtle shadows and sharp accents. What’s more, Gos’s on-touch HUD features multiway resize to ensure you can fit the boots precisely to your shape, ensuring a custom fit on every avatar: that’s why this boot will look as good on you as it will on any model.

The Moneymaker

Skin shopping is an expensive business and it can take rather a lot of dilly-dallying on my part before I’ll decide on a new favourite. I’d been sitting around in skin demos all day on Sunday trying to decide what to buy and nothing seemed to sit quite right, until AtomicSparkle Skytower of AtomicBambi kindly sent some review copies of her latest skins on me.

Ruined

I always find it hard to resist a good pose prop, and if you haven’t already seen ‘The Ruins’ from !BANG then you’re in for a treat. This worn brick archway sat perfectly in the locale I chose, and I was able to create a fun picture set using just three of the preloaded poses included which range from sneaking peeks around the brickwork to lazy posing atop of the structure. Try it out in the !BANG mainstore.

The look itself stemmed from an aviator jacket from DeLa. Available in a range of colours, there are a few classics there which make must have pieces for your winter wardrobe. Lined with thick fleece, the leather has a subtle, worn-in look that is so coveted for a piece like this. With open zipped front and cuffs and wide double-collar with buckle finish, this goes as well with jeans as it will with skirts, so you can really mix up your looks. Read the rest of this entry »

Gothica

We’re all a little strange. It’s just some people are better at hiding it than others.

Carina Larsen of Amacci was kind enough to send me a review copy of her latest skin, Irina. Irina comes in 5 tones, but as it happens I was already working on this look when I saw Irina and immediately chose gothic to work with. There are 16 makeups to choose from, including a couple of barely there looks (handy if you wish to apply other tattoos over the top) although the makeups are very well done and cater for the individual skin colours, so I think you’ll be hard pressed to walk away without picking up a few. I did add some extra mascara and a tattoo on the brow – Glam Affair’s offering at The Dressing Room a couple of weeks ago – for some added drama, but the vivid purple alone leaves quite an impact. There are skin demos available in store, but if you wanted to try the goth skin out then Carina’s released a gift to her group in an exclusive Pumpkin coloured makeup. Definitely worth stopping by the store and having a look. Read the rest of this entry »
