I hope everyone has enjoyed the holidays! :) I’ve been incredibly lazy. Coincidentally I just found a cozy new home in SL and Mon Tissu released a (big) bunch of beautifully feminine clothes that are perfect to just lounge in or mix and match casually so that’s what I’ve been wearing while decorating - being pretty much a hermit and not leaving the plot for other things than furniture stores. There’s a couple of items for the guys as well so I got TR to join in for a pic as well as snap it! 

Maitreya also released gorgeous new boots and socks, the latter which you can see in the two first pics. The sculpted socks/feet have a really natural shape and are wearable in three different ways - “flat”, “tip toe” or invisible to work nicely with shoes. Onyx just doesn’t disappoint. Although there’s not really a cold floors-issue in SL I’ll be keeping my feet “warm” with these.

Earlier today there was a formal release by LeLutka which will be their last release of 2010 and I had the pleasure to pose for a pic in one of my favourite pieces. There’s a lot more to check out at the store so if you’d like to celebrate the holidays and greet the new year with a bit of glam I suggest you go check it out. I am wearing the Reina gown, Thora is wearing the Ariel jacket with the Shiver gown and Minnu is wearing the Shutter dress. All photo credits go to Minnu! Link to the LeLutka blog and post here <3

Today’s post is a bit different. This time I’m basing my looks on items mainly from Mon Tissu - a store I doubt many have managed to miss despite that it’s only been open for a less than week! Whenever I TP to Lula it’s quite busy with people which is perfectly understandable to me considering how beautiful the sim is and the things you can buy there so far. To me the vintage inspired clothing was really exciting to play around with so I decided to showcase a few ways in which you can wear them but had to restrain my inner “layering maniac” to not go totally over the top. It’s all gorgeous. Although the clothes have a certain type of vibe I feel like they’d suit almost any type of personality or style great, whether you want to dress up in something delicate and romantic or something more clean and modern. There’s a good selection of colours to choose from and I was positively surprised by how perfectly the prims fit/blend. I know I’ll be using these pieces in lots of different ways as time goes on because what you can see here is just a fragment of the mix’n’match possibilities.  Go visit the sim and store here!

I guess Leopard #2 is the slightly eccentric look and I wanted it to look “thrown together” but somewhat elegant and trashy at the same time. As if you were in a rush getting dressed and grabbed whatever was lying on the back of a chair then finished it off with one or two classier statement pieces. I’m loving LG Concept’s Baba Turban which is one of the One Eleven items and last time I checked there were still some left. Another item that’s really grown on me is the Furry Shoulder Shawl by KnickKnack - a store I hadn’t heard of before that seems to specialize in modest medieval clothing/accessories, some of which I could actually see myself mixing up in casual and modern outfits too. 

Details:
Turban (One Eleven Exlusive) and ring by LG Concept
Hair by Boon
Glasses by Epoque
Furry Shoulder Shawl by KnickKnack
Stole by RunoRuno
Cardigan by Beetlebones
Fur vest parts by Bijou

Animal prints isn’t something I go crazy over but once in a while it can be fun to try something different and step out of your own box, so I played around with some items and ended up with two different looks with leopard and this Beetlebones cardigan in common. Going to post them both here and am starting off with this one!

I like leopard print best paired with mostly neutral tones so I took that to an extreme with the first outfit where I was going for a neat and preppy look with a slight edge. So I kept accessories at a minimum and tried to leave the skirt in focus.

Details:
Skin and Lipstick by LeLutka
Hair by Kin
Sunglasses and ring by Paper Couture
Cape and skirt by Milk Motion (50L Friday items)
Cardigan by Beetlebones

Yesterday I went to check out the Snowflake Experience because I noticed that the proceeds of some items that are for sale will be donated to Toys for Tots - in some cases it’s 100% of the proceeds, 75%, 50% etc. which is displayed clearly on those vendors. Events that are part of some type of charity always feel more worth checking out to me and I like this cause. Some of my favourite things that I picked up are displayed above - it’s the stool by Olive Juice, long-johns by Paper.Doll and hair by LoQ Hairs. The stool has six animations and pillow textures, the long-johns come in two patterns and the hairs include several hairbase colours. The socks shown are unfortunately no longer available but were from Untone Quilt. Hope you are all doing well, and click the picture for a SLURL!

At the Tip of My Fingers

If you are like me and: 1. Too lazy to tint and fit prim hands for different skintones and skins, 2. Not a huge fan of prim nails then you might want to grab Tres Blah’s set of glove layer nails. Most of the time when I’ve purchased this type of nails in the past they’ve been priced at around 100L a pair, which can feel a little pricey. These nails are sold in a fatpack containing 20 colours and a little nail polish bottle too, for a total of 75L. Personally I love the colour selection which ranges from cute pastels and polkadots to deeper and more classic tones. Don’t miss out!

"COMFORTABLY CLASSIC" - The first mix’n’match look I post here is a casual look with warm tones, a little bit of print and a lot of different materials. Something comfortable, put together with classics.

A few notes about some of the items:

The “Navajo Bag” used here is an old 50L Friday item by Milk Motion so I’m unsure if it’s still available. If you somehow managed to miss that Elikapeka Tiramisu opened a new store I suggest you go visit and definitely pick up this hair when you do, it’s 0L for all colours and comes in two versions - I don’t think I’ve ever used a freebie hair as much as this one and the other styles offered at Elikatira are gorgeous yet modestly priced. Izumiya's cardigan is also modestly priced at 80L each with a number of options, available in 10 colours.

Burned Rice’s “Noodle Chair”

Stumbled upon this steal today and was quite surprised and pleased to see the price - 1L for a well-crafted chair with four cute poses and shadows cast in the direction of either north, east, south or west. The icing on the cake? It’s only 2 prims <3. Sold in a “summer” or “winter” version which seem to be identical but with a different set of poses. The fact that I have a weak spot for clean and simple design makes it even better.

Visit the store.

I’m a fan of Studio Ghibli andHayao Miyazaki movies. Cinema Chabinn makes me feel like I am actually in one. TR and I went exploring here yesterday and it really does have a sense of adventure along with the dreamlike and surreal qualities that are typical for Studio Ghibli movies. Places like these is one thing I have missed about SL itself and I love checking out how people find new ways to create a true “experience” for the rest of us. If you are out of the loop like me or just haven’t taken the time to visit here yet then I’d say it’s worth a visit. Just a tip: don’t forget the magic word. 

Teleport to Cinema Chabinn.

Recycling Myself?

After being away from SL for ages I’m finally enjoying being “back”. I’ve missed some people although not SL itself. When I’m on now there is a sense of newness and good ol’ days both at the same time which I guess is one of the feelings that I haven’t gotten from it in a long time.

While I was off SL I fell in love with Tumblr so it made sense that if I started a new project it would be here. Not sure I even expect many people to find their way here but whenever I come across something in SL that I really love I get the urge to blog about it. I don’t intend for this to be a strictly fashion blog like Chignon, nor something on a large scale - just a place for me to post/share when or IF I feel like it. More like a virtual scrapbook I guess you could say. It could be clothes, places, people, songs or something completely random. No expectations! Chignon was fun and the response to it was and still is very inspirational to me, I just want to start fresh in a different direction and see where it leads.

This blog is still under construction but it's meant to be a place for me to leave little notes about things that catch my attention in Second Life. I want to keep it simple and feature both old and new items, places, etc. Anyway... welcome to my Tumblr!
