Quick post to show you two looks that I made using some new releases and discount event items. Plus some gifts!
In this post, Moniq is wearing probably the most beautiful dress that I have seen in my SLife. I suppose many bloggers loved it too, since it’s on all the feeds. But hey, how can one miss so much pretty?
The dress is a new release by The Secret Store for the Collabor88 anniversary edition and you can choose from several colors and two patterns. This is a totally must-have, believe me!
Also from Collabor88 I got the Ingenue shoes (add-ons for SL feet), the Baiastice necklace and the Cae earrings.
It’s mid July already and most of the people I know are wearing around their beautiful sun tan. Me, on the other hand, I am pale as cheese and there’s no chance to changed that till late August.
Now they are saying that the sun is no longer healthy and that we, the less fortunate people who get more sunburns than suntan, should learn to love our pale skin. I admit that’s a challenge for me. But since I have no vacation plans for the following month, I have to live with that, right?
As usual, I am translating my dream of summer in SL. Moniq is wearing a lovely Essences skin in the light rose tone, my favorite, available at the Dressing Room Fusion.
The hair and jeans are by Maitreya, where there’s a sale ongoing and you can get everything 50% to 75% off. The lovely top is a hunt gift by Auxiliary, while the shoe add-ons are by Hucci and are available at Collabor88.
If I went on a date with my SL partner (which I never do because he’s busy RPing and I’m busy taking photos) I’d totally wear that dress.
If we went dancing to a club, later, I’d still wear that dress, I’d just take off the texture layer and I’d get a sexy party dress.
If I was to pick only 10 outfits to wear in my Second Life from now on, this dress would be one of them. In the fatpack version 😀
Whenever Ison has a new release, I am amazed by the talent of its creator. I love the idea, the details, the texture, the way it fits my avatar. And the best part? Ison is again in this month’s Collabor88 and you can get this lovely piece for only L$88.
I had to wear this dress with the latest group gift available at Akeruka, because the makeup seems to have been done especially for it. I added moles by Dead Apples, released for Cosmetic Fair 2013, just because I love them.
The nails by Bens Beauty and the Rozena eyes are also Cosmetic Fair exclusives.
Last, but not least, I guess everyone in SL and their mothers know about the Truth hair sale. Three days later, the sim is still packed and I had no way to get in. Luckily, the Truth District sim was nearby – and it was almost full too, with avatars shopping from the edge. So I got this beautiful hair for only L$75 (and more, but that’s to be shown later).
I know that’s not a good headline, but one can’t have it all, right? It is. however, in the line of this post, because I used the cutest prop available at the Pose Fair 2013. And it’s all about ice cream!
Plus, the new Collabor88 collection is out and there are so many items that I love there! For this post, I chose a pretty skirt by Ingenue, a cute hairstyle by Clawtooth and a skin by PXL Creations, as the brand is a Collabor88 guest this month.
Do you know why I never had money for fancy wooden floors in my apartment? Well… cause they invented shoes 😀
I love all kinds of shoes. And though I wear comfy boots or flats most of the time, my heart sings for heels.I buy them, I wear them a couple of times and then I just keep them there, because my feet need something more wearable for work and stuff.
And then start drooling for more shoes. And I buy them, I wear them a couple of times…
Oh, wait, the story of my RLife should not be on this blog. However, when it comes to shoes, it seems my behavior is the same: buy, wear, buy, wear. I am a hoarder.
But today is special. Because Angelina is here. Of course, I am talking about the new Gos Boutique release. And I am going to wear this pair until … well, until a new Gos release, I suppose 😀 See, there’s the amazing shoe, and there’s the amazing hud and they are so easy to wear and my avatar does hot have sore feet!
Also, I managed to sneak into Collabor88 to get this lovely emerald top by Ison. The skin is by Essences and is available for one more week at the Dressing Room Fusion, while the hair is a group gift by Yulicie, a store new to me, and the hairs are pretty cool there.
Ohai, I’m as pale as Moniq in this post. Luckily, pixel ladies can’t catch a cold. Luckily for her, I mean, cause I’m not made of pixels 😀
Anyway, enough whining for today. Or maybe not. Let’s whine about how addictive gatchas are and how fast one can get broke at a gatcha event.
This kinda happened to me today, because I knocked myself out at the Arcade gatcha event and, though I’m whining about how my balance is totally imbalanced, I;m happy for the great things that ended up in my inventory.
One of them is this lovely Roza skin by Glam Affair and another one that I love is the H.O.F. clutch that, luckily enough, was a perfect match for my outfit from the first try!
If you love the work of a SL content creator, stand up for them! If you are against coybotting, stand up for original content! These seem to be the key phrases in SL these days.
You probably found out how Gala Phoenix of Curio has been dragged in a legal battle over her skins and that her content is not on the grid at this point. (more info here).
An impressive number of content creators – from top brands to small stores – have gathered to make a fundraiser for Gala Phoenix, so she can cover part of the legal fees. If you are willing to help, go shop at the One Voice event. Designers are donating 50%-100% of their sales there to Gala. You get to spend your money on pretty items and Curio gets the chance to come back with more beautiful skins (see the brands involved here).
If you need to know more about the event and the reasons behind it, please check this amazing post by Cajsa, she said it better than I could have.
In the photo below, Moniq is wearing a lingerie set by Nzuri and a haistyle by Mina, both donation items for the One Voice fundraiser. There will be lovely skins at the event too, I’m sure, but for me, this is a Gala skin week. I will use the Curio skins in my inventory for my posts, because I want all my readers to remember how great they are and hope for more Curio skins on the grid.
At least for the summer, because beauty is so easy to find nowadays in SL. I am in love with the new dresses released by Toki Doki and So Many Styles. It’s great that designers collaborate more to make pretty stuff for us fashionistas.
I accessorized the dress with Collabor88 and Accessories Hunt items and here’s the result:
Yes, that it true! Raw photos on this blog! I believe taking great raw photos in SL is the hardest thing about SL photography, I only know a handful of people who do it well. However, I decided that this set looks quite decent because I was very careful about the poses, prim adjustment and all that, so here they are, cropped and unedited!
Also, I must say that these photos were taken on Thursday, but I was away for the weekend and didn’t have the time to post them. And given that Thursday’s great event was the new Collabor88 collection, that’s what you get!
