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.

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.

Wiccan Wood

An enchantress of sorts. A whitish witch.

I’m posting this a little early in the hope that you’ll still be able to catch the accessories from Whippet & Buck. It’s the last day of Jewelry Fair today, so if you want the necklace or bangles you’d better run along and pick them up as I don’t know when or if these will appear in the Whippet & Buck mainstore. Both are very reasonably priced, the bracelet with one pearl and one diamond bangle over laid, finished with a little bow on the top. The necklace is just as sweet, a metal ribbon pendant suspended on a chain dotted with pearls among the links. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

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 »

Oh Vanity!

“We are so vain that we care for the opinion of those we don’t care for.” – Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach

Hair Fair 2010 is featuring some great new styles like this one from Amacci. With hair cropped into a fluffy bob, sections are pulled back from the front and knotted up at the back of the head for a kittenish look that frames the face beautifully. With flyaway strands keeping this soft and light, the Ulrica style also offers gentle movement and rich textures with glossy highlights for added realism. Amacci is well worth a stop on your way through the fair: there’s a free goodie bag at their tent with two new releases and a hairbase in the Red Auburn colour. 50% of sales from another new style, Sinnea, are being donated to the Hair Fair charity.

For the camera

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:44 pm by Fayne Khandr

Smile for the camera… sure, the crazy balance thing is good too.

Casual clothing can be just as involved as the dressier looks, often relying on accessories in the same way to pull everything together. You have to start with the basics though, and for this look that means a rollneck sweater from Maitreya. There is some great knitwear on the grid, but I like this piece particularly for its precise sculpts. The neck is a snug fit, but is slightly loose and uneven making it a bit more interesting – the long sleeves share these traits, and combined with the two included options of sheer and opaque styles, it makes this jumper a tidy buy.

Put me on a pedestal

Shoe Fair 2010 opens its doors tomorrow and you’ll find an array of fantastic new footwear from a huge range of designers. With everything on offer it is difficult to know where to begin, but I can guarantee you’ll get a kick from Gos’s new Platform Pumps.

This sleek stiletto features an elongated platform beneath the toe, leading back to a beautifully pinched heel that perfectly encloses the foot. Beautifully lit from every angle, the shoe straps across the front with a delicate metal buckle, although you can can wear these open by hiding the strap if you prefer. The pumps are a beautifully snug fit with scripted resize, are Viewer 2.0 ready and are colour change to all parts of the shoe, giving you massive customisation options in each and every gorgeous colour duo. With all the options available in each pair along with the exceptional quality, you’re getting a bargain for your L$295. Make sure you pick yours up when you visit the Shoe Fair, and don’t forget to have a look at all the new Docs texture updates while you’re there. Read the rest of this entry »

Blaze a Trail

Posted in Fashion, iheartsl, MV-SL-Fashion tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:23 pm by Fayne Khandr

No need to show me the way – I’ll find my own paths to follow.

In case you’d missed the news flash, Armidi are having a sale. It’s at an alternative location and you need to join theWarehouse group first to get in, but if you’re looking for some well made clothing at reasonable prices, it’s worth a little effort. I picked up this pinstripe blazer, offered in both short and long sleeve versions on the jacket layer with prim parts. The open front presents a mass of layering options, the collar folding back and opening out around the neck. The pinstripe is neither too bold or too subtle, presenting a clean backing for the detail of the shading, buttons and front pocket flaps. Read the rest of this entry »
