The Darkness Inside

The Darkness Inside

Since I’ve been so crazy busy I haven’t been able to show you all the amazing items that have come out over the weekend. It was Memorial Day yesterday so I spent a good portion of the day with family in RL. My maternal grandfather served in the Army Air Corps (for-runner to the Airforce) during WW2 and my paternal grandfather served during peace time in the Army reserves.

If you’re confused, this image is just another of the juxtapositions I enjoy creating. Finesmith, Magnifique and Gala Fashion Design all have items that verge on the sci-fi/fantasy/dark side, so I combined them to create this darker avatar. On the left, the more angelic, is a gown by Living Imagination. These are all wonderful items that can suit many different tastes.

Throne for the taking

With everything going on in RL and SL, it’s a surprise to me that I have time to blog today! As I posted earlier on tumblr, Fifty Linden Friday = Broke Saturday. For me, anyway. I grabbed several items, all of which I love (check out the Fri.day and Pure Poison items), but the one in particular I wanted to feature was Junbug’s Instant Crush. The cuff and neckline detailing are beautiful, and the draping of the dress falls particularly nicely on my slender frame. This will look great on everyone, of that I’m confident. To add a modern twist to what the medieval styling, I’m wearing the Valeria jewelry set from Finesmith. It’s very sci-fi and dramatic, but also work well for a formal occasion. This post was the perfect excuse for me to show-off the Legacy Banners from Sweet Poison. My favorite houses are Stark, Targaryen and Tyrell, the three shown here. For 100L you can get a bunch of banners. Your choice is between copper and gray. As a side note, this is the first image I’ve taken in my new home! Thanks to Zee, I have a place to call my own. In addition, I will be helping out around Nouveaux, an opportunity which I’m very excited about.

Gown: Junbug – Instant Crush – crimson (Fifty Linden Friday item)
Necklace and earrings: Finesmith – Valeria
Hair: Epoque – Tied-up
Pose: Mien Poses – Timid (25×25 event, only available for 25 hours at the store on May 25th)
Banners: Sweet Poison – Legacy Banners (found at The Fantasy Room)

La Chica en Rojo

If you’ve been reading my entries over the last week, you’ll see I’ve been posting quite a few red dresses. This spring/summer season seems to be all about the crimson and burgundy. The truth is, I don’t mind. My favorite color is red, so I’m quite content to blog all of these items.

Before the credits I want to let readers and designers know that I will be posting only 2 more times this week. Things were crazy for me in RL over the weekend and will be crazy in SL through Friday. My apologies in advance.

A True Tuesday

A True Tuesday

There is so much loveliness available for Hello Tuesday. It counter-acts a truly dark day in my neck of the woods. Yes, I can’t stop mentioning the weather, but it’s that weird time in-between spring and summer. Anyway, I mainly have items from Hello Tuesday and Cosmopolitan Sales Room in this outfit.

LivGlam as always has multiple outfits available for this special day and they also have a pair of shoes and a handbag. Each is a great value. As you can tell, I chose another top and skirt combo since I always revel in the opportunity to mix-and-match. The top reveals just enough to be sexy while still staying chic and is perfect for a night on the town having drinks with girlfriends or spending time with one’s significant other.

The accessories really make this look. They add both a classic and edgy feel. You can use any combination of these to portray your desired feel. I chose the bracelet from Orage Creations (which has a color changing HUD that you can use to find the perfect match for your outfit) and the watch from Finesmith, which could easily be mistaken for another bracelet. That’s perfect because you can keep track of the time without giving up a glamorous jewelry piece. The gloves are a group gift from L’Douce Push (LDP) which have options for system hands or slink add-ons. The necklace is for Buttery Toast specifically for CSR. I hope you got the bracelet and ring from the last round of CSR because by now that means you have a great jewelry set!

Outfit (top and skirt): LivGlam – Still Turning Japanese for Hello Tuesday
Hair: Lelutka – Kate
Necklace: Buttery Toast – Coming Up Roses – cream for CSR
Bracelet: Orage Creations – Studs Bracelet – black for CSR
Watch: Finesmith – ZMAN Watch – grey for CSR
Gloves: LDP (free group gift)

Snowpaws released the Viale Gown in her store and she has the watercolor option for FashionART. It has a surreal quality which blends nicely with nature encompassing the colors of fall and spring.

The dramatic headpiece I’ve paired with the Viale Gown is Blossom in white from Finesmith. There are blue and yellow available in the store, also.

Green of the Sea

Green of the Sea

Lots of free and low cost items in this outfit! I was inspired by a conversation I had with a random stranger. We ran into each other at both Miamai and Pure Poison wearing the same pants – this week’s Fifty Linden Friday item from Pixicat. Pink and green are a beautiful spring color combination. With the assistance of pattern and color-changing huds, I was able to change the Pixicat High-rise jeans to the light green pattern and added a yellow-green tie to the Miamai group gift for May. A past group gift from Finesmith with it’s large pink and green faceted stones completed the outfit perfectly. Also, I’m showing you one of the two newest releases from Argrace. Two wedding-themed hairs came available on May 1st. The one I’m showing here has an option for flowers and a white headband, or the plain version like I’m wearing. In the back is a long braid.

The final thing I will mention is the pose. It’s one of several from Pipit that will be placed on the Nouveaux Collective sim on May 5th. The pose pack is called “Blogger Essentials.” This is a classy standing pose, but what I also love is that many of the poses can be used to show-off jewelry or handbags. Honestly, I haven’t found a lot of great low-priced options for accessory poses, so if you’ve run into the same situation, you NEED to pick-up these poses and also check out the Pipit store for more cuteness.

Pants: Pixicat – High-waisted Jeans(Fifty Linden Friday)
Shirt: Miamai – Kalia Silk (free group gift)
Earrings: Finesmith – Good (free past group gift, still available in the store)
Hair: Argrace – Koto
Pose: Pipit – Blogger Essentials (coming soon for the Nouveaux hunt)
