Enemy

Welcome to 2011.

The look started with a bargain buy from The Dressing Room Blue. It’s so worth scouting around The Dressing Room’s two stores every now and then as you will often find a piece or two you fall in love with that are a fraction of their usual store price, or exclusive to the sale rooms. This jacket from Emery is fun to wear, pseudo-military with its studded, high and angular collar. The shoulder pads mimic the other lines, jutting out although not in as much of an exaggeration – the cropped coat crumples all the way down the sleeves and maintains a softness through the body, moving well with most AOs. It does use up a lot of attach points, but if you use the official SL viewer you can simply add any other accessories, eliminating possible clashes. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

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 »

Father Lucifer

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 »

Why yes, those are my pumpkins. You can look but don’t touch.

This Woman’s Work

She runs her hand over the curves of her body, leaning across the desk where she kneels to stroke the cheek of the astonished Detective.

“I’m not a bad girl,” she whispers, her lips an inch away from his own, “just a little short on funds.”

The ringing telephone interrupts briefly, and without care the Detective reaches down to pull the wire from the wall. It gives her all the time she needs to reach into the desk and draw the revolver there, already loaded and now held to his head. Read the rest of this entry »

A little continental

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:57 pm by Fayne Khandr

There’s very little I recall from the language lessons I had as a child, but should I ever find myself stuck in France with a few Euros and nothing else, I take solace in the fact that I could always locate a bakery and ask for a chocolatey pastry, even if all else was beyond me.

General ignorance aside, I’d like to share ‘The French Bakery’ pose set with you. I was sent a review copy by Flix Saiman of CLICK and was very excited by the vibrant street scene. Built with the professional photographer in mind, this continental set comes complete with Boulangerie, flower stall, fountain and cafe seating area and is loaded with dozens of static poses.

White Fog

Rising fog, but no wind or rain. It’s a good day to be by the coast.

I started with a new piece from Bijou, an oversized sleeveless cardigan with tiered skirting. Lace tied to the top, there’s a slim opening running down the centre, the material flowing long from beneath the chest, stopping at varied lengths. It pulls up at the back around the bottom, similarly framed to the front. There is quite a width to this and you might need to look at something other than your usual AO to ensure hands don’t get lost in its folds, but it’s a lovely piece nonetheless.

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.
