Poinsettia

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:31 pm by Fayne Khandr

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a Poinsettia.

If you’re in the market for a new dress for party going you should take a look at ORTA’s new Cassandra gown. With billowing skirt featuring a slight train to the back, Cassandra features a deep v neckline to showcase your assets, with bows ornamenting the shoulders. Simple but dramatic, you can also opt to remove the skirt for a sexy bodysuit that can be layered or worn alone if there’s a certain someone who’s been extra good to you this year. There are some beautiful light and dark colours to choose from and you’ll find matching clutches available in store too. Read the rest of this entry »

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

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:21 pm by Fayne Khandr

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

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:07 pm by Fayne Khandr

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 »

Change Your Spots

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:55 pm by Fayne Khandr

You can imitate a wilder nature at least.

I picked up this smart-casual jacket from NINIKO a few weeks ago now and thought it was about time it featured in a look. Detailed with buttons, cuffs and side pockets, you’ll notice I’m not wearing the collar piece here – some jackets can be easily broken down and re-worked with scarves and sweaters, and this is a good example. You will have to content with the chest piece breaking a little in certain poses (the overlay of the upper section would have hidden that) but unless you have a particularly outlandish AO it shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

Street

Sure it’s street. It’s just the way I do street.

Miel have released a gorgeous new set of clothing which couldn’t wait to be blogged. Elle consists of separates in various colours with several options of tone and texture per piece giving you huge variety from just a few purchases. I’m showing here the trousers, tank and bow, but there’s a sculpted evening top too which you can check out in store. Read the rest of this entry »

Long Grass

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:11 pm by Fayne Khandr

Funny – it doesn’t look any greener this side.

I’ve picked up some lovely new clothes this week, and did particularly well at AOHARU. Among the new releases is this sexy silk blouse, unbuttoned to the chest and billowing open to the wide, fold-back collar. Once fitted it’s pretty AO-friendly for the most part; while no-mod it does feature a resize script, but if you’re considering wearing with other prim-based clothing you may want to make sure it can be modified to easily work around.

A Little Gourdy

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:51 pm by Fayne Khandr

What? It was cheaper than a puppy.

If you too want to be the proud owner of a pet pumpkin, you can find your perfect vegetable and the associated poses in store at !BANG. Whether you’re looking for a Jack O’Lantern for Hallowe’en, want to play at Cinderella or need a harvest themed prop, this set is all encompassing with standing and sitting stances which all look good from most angles. You can pick up a few gourd-themed poses for free in the Artist’s Voice hunt that’s currently going on, and buy the rest from the !BANG mainstore. Trieste Minuet has been extremely busy lately and released several pose sets and props, so be sure to have a good nose around while you’re there. Read the rest of this entry »

Hardly Obscene

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:52 pm by Fayne Khandr

…but then you seem to like it anyway?

The Obscene have several wigs on offer at Hair Fair 2010 at bargain prices, including the Hime style. Hime is oddly dramatic, fringe swept to the side, thick and full against the slick pullback that rises to a plumed ponytail. Flicked strands create a spiked edge that falls to lengths of loose hair left trailing in front of the shoulder. The wig is fully mod and I did remove the large pin that is part of the original design; it’s white in colour so you could also tint it if preferred. Read the rest of this entry »
