Love On Top

Did you know the Creators Stamp Rally was going on now? I love love love the CSR because not only is it fun to get prizes, but often I get to find new-to-me stores, or get to remember stores that I had forgotten about! If you aren't familiar with the CSR, it's pretty easy. I suggest reading the blog to find out what to do. But just know if you want ALL the prizes, you'll need 20 cards to stamp, and that means buying 20 things. Or if you're lucky, you'll have friends who have extra cards and give them to you. :) I was on a mission for cards last night, so I went to shop!

Style - Love On Top

Niniko is a new-to-me store and particpating in the CSR. I picked up this cute little Chiffon Cutsew top there! I love simple tops to pair with jeans, but the big bow on it gives it that extra little kick to keep it from being too plain.

I hadn't been to Honey Kitty in a while, so I was really happy I stopped by! Look at the aptly named Sweet Sweet Bag! I don't know if I want to use it as a purse, travel with it, or put my lunch in it! The bow is color change and there are several bag colors available. Honey Kitty is also participating in the CSR.

Remember when you're out shopping to get cards that most of the stores only have cards in their newer items. Most of them will have a sign over something saying it has a card in it, but when in doubt, just edit and look in the contents. Of course, things at these stores are so very cute, you probably won't care if you get a card or not!

Oh! I'm starting something new on this blog that I've seen others do by adding the name of the designer next to the store SLurl. Does that make it easier for you all to find things? I try really hard to always look up every SLurl before posting, but I didn't know if you guys care either way. Let me know! :)

This Time I'm Not Leaving Without You

I don't know what it is about boots that just make me want to line dance and drink beer. Even when the boots aren't necessarily western style, I still feel it. Must be the Texas girl in me!

Style - This Time I'm Not Leaving Without You

SLink just released new mesh boots! The Astrid ankle boots are just...well, look at them. They're fab! They come in 16 colors, and if you fatpack you are able to mix and match the boot and the strap colors. Now while these boots ARE mesh, they're not rigged and are able to be resized via the HUD. Awesome!

Mesh hair isn't very common yet, and I haven't really had a chance to play with any, so the new Aria mesh hair from Wasabi Pills was fun to wear! It moves quite well in some poses [not all, but that could be said for anything, mesh or sculpty or primmy] and it's just really sweet looking. This hair would probably look better on someone else, though, since my head is weird shaped and I can't wear sleek styles. But it's so pretty, I couldn't help myself! Of course, the main problem with mesh hair is not being able to really edit it. But we're still in the very early days of mesh, so who knows what will happen in the future?

Okay, enough talk. Time to shop!

Mad For You

Hello readers! Wow, it was a whirlwind of a week last week getting ready to get married on Sunday! I couldn't believe how busy I was! You know who else was busy? Some of my favorite designers! And lucky for us, they were, because there were some wonderful things released in the past few days.

Style - Mad For You

Mmm...meshy goodness from Raspberry Aristocrat! The new Sweet Tanks and Sweet Pleated Skirts are awesome! I love basics, as you all know, and I can see myself pairing these up with lots of things! If you STILL can't see mesh, you're missing out! I'm wearing the Small size in both of these items, and only had to modify my shape a tiny bit to get things to fit - like dropping my boob gravity down slightly and bringing in my saddlebags a bit. Oh, don't you wish for sliders for your physical body? I know I do!

For those of you who still aren't into mesh, Gos just came out with these amazing Storm Sandals. Oh, I am in LOVE with them! So so so many ways to customize and with the fatpack [and really, why wouldn't you get the fatpack?] you can hit the Random button and get your shoes to surprise you with colors! I told Gospel that was a GREAT feature for someone like me because it meant I would have to make an outfit to match my shoes instead of the other way around. Fun times! Also, the foot is SO incredibly easy to match to your skin [at least it was for me] and I find the toes to be very nice looking. In fact, I'd love to have a bare foot! [Hint hint!]

Tricky Boucher of Belleza just released the new Chloe skin and it's soooo pretty! This is definitely going to become my new "everyday" skin, I can feel it! Lots of makeups to choose from, but if I were you, I'd fatpack it. There is a lighter brow tattoo, but it's not very light, so blondes may want to play around and see how it works. I find that using the light brow tattoo with my blonde hair that has darker roots works a bit better.

And of course it's not a week without new releases from Truth! The new Brandi hair is gorgeous, as you would expect, and comes with some hair flowers! I'm not wearing a flower in this photo, but they are cute! I'm a sucker for accessories for my hair.

Time to go shopping!

Collabor88 Again!

Tomorrow is September 8th, and you know what that means! A new edition of Collabor88!! The theme this month is Neons & Neutrals, and one of my favorite stores, Ingenue, put it together beautifully!

Style - Collabor88 Again!!

The Sedgwick dress is a mod little number that would do Ms. Edie Sedgwick proud. There are also tights that match the dress, but my legs started to look weird to me. I love the colors, though, so I know they'll get used for another outfit! Also to match, the cute cute Bridget flats! I love flat shoes in any life, and I wish I could yank these from my computer and put them on my own feet!

Collabor88 starts tomorrow, and you guys are going to LOVE it!!

Let's Get Lost

Truly TRULY getting spoiled by mesh boots lately! I will never be able to wear another over the knee boot that is not mesh again!! Check out the new mesh boots from Lassitude & Ennui!

Style - Let's Get Lost

The new Overknee boots are just marvelous!  And believe it or not, these babies actually fit me out of the box!  You can't see it in the photo, but the boots dip into a V cut in the back. Very hot!  I'm wearing them in Snakeskin, and there's a gorgeous Embossed print as well, and several colors to choose from.  You know what I love more than these boots?  Long established brands in Second Life that don't just rest on their laurels and who keep current with their skills.  Lassitude & Ennui, big major kudos to you! I can't wait to see what you come out with next!

I Ain't Sayin' She's A Golddigger

Yes yes! More mesh goodness! I know, I said the blog wouldn't be all mesh all the time, but oh you guys. I just can't seem to help myself!! Check out this sexy number from Ten Fifteen!

Style - I Ain't Sayin She's A Golddigger

The Natalia dress is a super sexy dress that is so very perfect if you love going to parties and clubs.  With a deep plunging neckline and a low cut back, you get the advantage of showing off lots of skin without giving everything away.

And I had to pair this up with the new mesh Tall Leather Thigh Boots from SLink because...well, look at them. LOVE.

Go shopping!

That's How I Became Head Girl

So I'll admit, wizarding school wasn't easy! I mean, all those potions to learn and waving a wand around and it would have been dead easy to gain a billion pounds with all the crap we eat. But then I was announced as Head Girl! Gee...I wonder how that happened.

Style - That's How I Became Head Girl

SLink just came out with some new mesh boots!!  I have always loved thigh high boots in SL, but I've rarely worn them since either you're stuck with texture boots, or the prims get all crazy when you try to bend your leg.  But with mesh...oh baby!  These are the first boots that have ever made me want to pose naked with them, and that is saying a LOT because I don't feel comfortable posing naked pretty much anywhere!  The boots come in several colors [including pink!!] and there are four sizes to choose from, but be aware that they tend to run a little on the small side.  I'm wearing the "Curvy" size and I did have to scale my legs down a bit to wear them, since the "Plus" sized ones, the largest in the pack, were a little TOO plus for my liking.  But they're so worth making my legs a little thinner for, because I can't stop strutting around in them!

Go to SLink!!

Oh, PS: I'm just making up stories. I'm not affiliated with any of the wizard RP things that are around. :)
