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 »

Ruined

I always find it hard to resist a good pose prop, and if you haven’t already seen ‘The Ruins’ from !BANG then you’re in for a treat. This worn brick archway sat perfectly in the locale I chose, and I was able to create a fun picture set using just three of the preloaded poses included which range from sneaking peeks around the brickwork to lazy posing atop of the structure. Try it out in the !BANG mainstore.

The look itself stemmed from an aviator jacket from DeLa. Available in a range of colours, there are a few classics there which make must have pieces for your winter wardrobe. Lined with thick fleece, the leather has a subtle, worn-in look that is so coveted for a piece like this. With open zipped front and cuffs and wide double-collar with buckle finish, this goes as well with jeans as it will with skirts, so you can really mix up your looks. Read the rest of this entry »

Change Your Spots

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.

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.

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.

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 »

Bohemian Elements

Hair Fair 2010 is in full swing. If you haven’t stopped by already it’s worth a trip, provided you don’t mind leaving with a rather empty purse. Sales from many vendors at Hair Fair are being donated to the charity Wigs for Kids which offers support through hair replacement to children who are being treated with chemotherapy, countering the effects that losing hair can cause to their self esteem. It’s a great cause: take a look at the Wigs for Kids website for more information. Read the rest of this entry »
