And Far Away

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.

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 »

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 »

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 »

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.

Kawaii ne?

I’m barely schooled in Japanese but I’m not adverse to returning to the classroom to learn a little more. It does seem that I’m a little early for my lecture though…

Did Truth’s Layla hair have anything to do with my choice of styling? Perhaps just a little. These big fluffy bunches are pulled in front of the shoulders so should work well with most AOs; the hair is scraped into check and knotted around on itself to hold the do. The fringe is brushed into two sections, pulled around on either side of the face with the right side fastened by a pair of bobby pins. Read the rest of this entry »
