And Far Away

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:32 pm by Fayne Khandr

The snow was starting to get me down so I moved to warmer climes.

I wanted to start with something colourful so I pulled out the jacket and scarf I found in an outlet of Peqe on the Euphoria sim. I understand the set is exclusive to this location and comes in four colour options of the same style. Open to the front with wood buttons on the side, the sleeves are rolled up past the wrists. The cowl scarf hangs loose to the neck, sitting over the raise of the padded shoulders. Be aware that the jacket may cut through if you wear an AO with a lot of shift on the upper body or the hips as it consists of just one prim for the main section; it’s similar to most prim jacket styles so you should be a pro at adapting your stance to suit.

Frosty Starlight

There for all to see, if you’re only looking…

Even by starlight my feet are looking particularly fabulous cocooned in Gos’s seasonal Slouch Boots. The original boots were released a couple of weeks ago but Gos have just put out a festive quartet colour pack in the same style. The soft leather boots are calf-high, creasing down the leg and set upon a raised wood base with studded join surround and ringed harness detail about the ankle. I’m wearing them in red tartan, but you can also choose from green argyle, silver and gold; the metallics are particularly fun, perfect for accompanying your New Year’s Eve party look and generally good for adding some sparkle to your style.

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.

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 »

Colour Collision

I had a little extra time today so I made sure I did a swoop on Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a few bargains which I’ve worked into this look, although there’s all manner of new and old pieces worked through the styling. Hopefully you’ll already have one or two in your inventory, which always helps with the budget.

One of my first stops was lamb where I picked up a new do for next to nothing. This style is a rework of one already in store, featuring a thick fringe cut across the brow with the rest of the hair falling in smooth, soft waves that stop just below the shoulders. You can opt for blonde or brunette to suit. Read the rest of this entry »

Long Grass

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.

Wind Swept

Will you hurry up and take the damn picture? I’m freezing here!

machang Pichot’s new releases always cause a stir, and I simply love this jacket for a seasonal, wind-swept look. The jacket is styled to billow open, trailing lengths of tabbed cord from collar and base. I love all the little details from the wear marks to the shiny brown buttons, and particularly the compression on the turn-back cuffs which are tightly secured by buttoned loops. An oversized hood folds back from the wide collar, giving the piece a shapely finish. Read the rest of this entry »

Self Confessed Chocoholic

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:37 pm by Fayne Khandr

There’s more to life than chocolate. Just not today.

My typical choices of hair colour vary from dark brown to red, but most of my Hair Fair purchases this year have been in brown tones. This rich chocolate texture from Magika definitely suited the theme of this post, and happily the style I chose is accompanied by a colour-change tie that also comes in a cocoa tone. Magika is featuring several new styles at Hair Fair 2010, but Kirsty was an instant favourite with me, the hairline high with fringe parted on a bias with wisps covering the right eye. The body of the hair is pulled back under the band, a few strands still flicking free, twisted into a large bun on the side. If you’re finding the fair a little difficult to navigate, the Hair Fair blog features a map of all the sims listing where each designer can be found – very handy if you’re fighting lag and already know what you’re looking for.
