Hands On

Sometimes something comes along that just grabs your eye, and you know instantly what you are going to do with it. This eye-catching short dress/top from E-Clipse is exactly that. From the pattern of the hands covering to the lines of this it is perfection in my eyes. Just love the smooth curve above the breast on the right side, and the long daring split on the left.

It teams perfectly with these semi lace patterned skinny leg jeans from Plastik. These come in 2 styles in the pack........cuffed and straight legged. Add a geometic patterned cluth from Pure Poison, which comes in 3 versions...left, right, unscripted. Some strappy high heels from Gos, some jewellery from Finesmith and Mandala and it's a look that can take you anywhere.

To me this just screamed out for some dark,but not too dark heavy eyes. This Liquid Shadow from Kookla fit that perfectly, and blend smoothly with the Pewter eyes from IKON. As I said in another post I just love the new Truth hair textures, and styles, this style being no exception. It has a light, breezy look perfect for summer days or evenings.

Ready in Red

Sorry to have not posted again in a while, but between my ISP being no better than dial up half the time, and SL being stuck in grey-world because the changes LL are doing puts a heavy demand on HTTP protocol...something my net is struggling to deal with. After several horrible days it is finally at a point where it's usable again. Many, many thanks to the Firestorm Support people for taking days to try to sort it for me.
On to today's outfit.
This ensemble is called Honey and it is by Yasum. It consists of a sleeveless body suit, a mini skirt, and chaps. Showing it here in red, but there is many, many options in the HUDs. Almost every aspect of the skirt and chaps is customisable.

The detailing on the chaps makes them a very cute accessory, while the skirt could easily be a mainstay in a wardrobe. Both are Mesh and come in standard sizing. The skirt also has an option called "Deformer" that does not require an alpha layer to fit.

Accessories are various fabulous pieces by Finesmith. "Grapa" earrings and bracelet in "Darkness" are a nice balance between statement jewellery, and accessory, "Truth" bracelet is totally a statement piece, and the ring "Here comes the Sun" in "Sheridans" is an eye-catching piece without overpowering.

Hair is part of the new releases in the brand new textures by Truth. It seems there is mixed reactions to the new textures as can be expected, some adore them, others are not so happy as their favourite texture has been replaced. Personally I love the new textures, and the new pack "Variations" is brilliant.

Modern Geisha

Recently I competed in the Face of October competition. There was 2 challenges for the semi-finals, and then 2 for the finals. This is the first challenge: [“We are all Geishas.” We want you to style a contemporary outfit inspired by Geishas. A Traditional Geisha figure will make you fail. You can check 2013 Etro Spring Collection or 2013 Pucci Spring Collection to see what we want.]

My take on this borrowed from several elements: contemporary japanese style with the jacket, shoes and pants, kawaii with the bag, and kabuki theatre with the make-up.

Highlighting the geisha inspired jacket over slim black pants.

LpD's Kabuki style make-up with the oriental feel of the Glam Affair headpiece.

The Kawaii inspired bag, and glossy red/black heels with a flower highlight complete the look.

What I am Wearing:
Top - SLC Mesh Chiffon Ruffled Blouse with Ribbon Poppy
Pants - Tee*fy  Black Shine Leggings
Hair - Vanity Hair: Wake up Alone-Jet Black
Hat - -Glam Affair- Oly Hat 03
Skin - -Belleza- Ava 2 BB Medium

Summer Days

Been about a month or so since I posted. Partly due to lack of time, but also lack of inspiration. I have been busy putting together outfits for "The Face of October" competition that I entered, and will post those later.
On to the current outfit.For those in the Northern Hemisphere it is almost Summer, for us it is getting into Winter. This outfit caught my eye with it's bright sunshine yellow skirt, and warm balmy days cerise top.With a style that could be casual and beachy, or dressed up as fun summer evening wear, this top and skirt are a winner.
Summer Days
Teamed here with a lovely jewellery set by Finesmith that is colour change so can be adapted to fit almost any outfit, it adds a touch of glam to the outfit.

I just love the top to this outfit. The cut and style of it lends itself to be able to be worn with many things, from skirts, through to shorts, through to pants. Or even just a bikini bottom at the beach.
