Song of Songs

It’s a funny time of the year to be walking alone.

Bare Rose is one of those stores that I visit infrequently, but every time I pop in I wonder why I’m not there more often. June Dion’s store is bursting with inexpensive outfits with everything from fantasy to casual styles. You do have to sift through, but it’s definitely worth it to locate gems like this cropped jacket from the Snow Smile set. For less than L$200 you’ll get several entire outfits – recolours of the same thing – but since the items are also transferable you can either load up on options yourself or kit out your friends and alts. This fur-trimmed coat has a suede feel and comes complete with wide half sleeves, the open front ornamented with popper fastenings on thick leather straps. It’s cute and cosy, well worth the sale price alone although you’ll also get sloganed tops, denim shorts and sash belts for your money. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

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.

When the voices in your head start purring it’s probably time to stop listening to them: although I have to admit that the devil on my shoulder is really rather persuasive.

The Hide & Seek sim is having a gatcha event right now and there are lots of items to play for from clothing and jewellery to candy carriers and shoulder pets. If you want your very own conscience kitties then you can try your luck on the ANAmations gatcha which features five different designs that also include a wizard, vampire and the rare ghost cat. They’re rather fun, so even if it’s not you usual thing you might enjoy a single play to see what chance determines as your holiday companion. Read the rest of this entry »

“The final mystery is oneself.” – Oscar Wilde

This shirt from DCNY is certainly one of my favourites due to its excellent textures and vibrant colouring. Shirts like this are really easy to wear, and the open front and rolled sleeves allow versatility with regards layering. The shirt is from a set which offers all layers plain as well as with bracers for another styling idea, working well with anything from jeans to pencil skirts. I wore a tube top from BOOM beneath, simple but effective in adding another block of colour. Read the rest of this entry »

Messing About by the River

When the weather is fine you know it’s the time for messing about on the river.
Or at least nearby.

I’ve wanted to buy this t-shirt from Exodi since I first saw it on Ryker Beck’s Flickr stream, but it wasn’t until the weekend that I managed to take a trip over to the store and pick it up. Graphics on casuals can really bring them to life, and the light brushwork to the front definitely adds interest. There are other details that appeal including an acutely angled cut to the rear neckline and the runched side which is pulled to a tie fastening above the left hip. Read the rest of this entry »

Perennial Spring

Gospel Voom and Elpis Oh are rocking my virtual world with their latest Docs polish release. I’m a huge fan of Gos’s Docs – with the ability to morph into three different shapes, simple resize and plethora of colour updates, you couldn’t ask for more versatile or wearable boots. I do believe Gos has succeeded in bottling a season and working the essence into leather: the latest Spring polishes come with five lush options, all with different floral themes and in vibrant colours. The colours just pop, bringing the detail of the primwork right to the fore. Read the rest of this entry »

The Kinks

We all have our favourites. Repeatedly producing quality content is a surefire way to win yourself a fan base that extends grid wide, and Truth Hawks has certainly achieved a considerable level of fame with his regular and consistently impressive releases.

This week’s releases particularly impressed me, not least the lovely Leona. The over-shoulder ponytail is sectioned and tied to three parts, with lots of free flying strands throughout. With one eye mostly covered, the swept fringe to the left balances the weight and creates an unusual style. Read the rest of this entry »
