Chic 2 – Take 2: coldLogic, Wasabi Pills, Glam Affair

June 4, 2012

Also at Chic 2 I got this super cute new mesh hair from Wasabi Pills. Anais 2 is a long mesh
style with braids. Rigged mesh to move with your body is probably the best thing to happen
to long hair in SL.  I picked up the reds pack and I’m wearing Gingerbread.

I also scooped up this cute strapless summer dress from coldLogic.  Moody is a strapless mesh
dress with a sweetheart neckline, wide waistband, and softly draping skirt. I chose it in
sageblossom which is a predominantly pink and green floral pattern.

My skin is once again Glam Affair Mia – a Chic 2 exclusive. Mia combines elements of 2 recent
popular Glam Affair skins, Leah and Giselle. Available in Natural tone and with  6 eyebrow options.
With a nice smokey eye makeup and soft neutral lips and blush, this is a great staple skin.
Add different lip or eye colours to vary your look.

Eclectic Apparel for Chic 2

June 4, 2012

The Chic Management Second Birthday Event opened yesterday.  Each designer created
one new item, available exclusively at the Chic2 event which runs June 3 – 24th.
Happy Birthday to Chic Management and congratulations to Keira Seerose. Keira has been
bringing some amazing events to the grid for the past 2 years. It’s a lot of work to make a
successful event and Keira has done it with professionalism and grace.

e! Eclectic Apparel’s item is the Cheer outfit. This mesh outfit includes a sports bra and
straight-leg track pants. Available in white and black, with your choice of 16 different accent
colours. Great for your cheerleading practice, yoga or other workout, rigged mesh moves with
your avatar’s body. Free demo available, and in standard sizing so there’s sure to be one that fits.

The skin I’m wearing is Glam Affair’s Mia, also at Chic2 exclusively. This skin is in a natural tone
and features a soft smokey eye and neutral lips. A great staple skin.

The pose is one of mine for Chic2. The Chic pose set is sold as a 10 pack or singly.
Look for Estetica’s cube at Chic2.

For this event the build is in a circle, each store has a little cube to display their product
and they have gone all out decorating them.  Because the event is so contained, it’s easy to
stay in one spot and cam around to see all the cubes. But it is still a busy event, so shop smart!
Take off those prims, AOs and other scripted items. Pare down to system clothes, no one can see
your finery and people will just get cross if you add to the lag.

Clothes: e! Eclectic Apparel – Cheer Outfit (white/black) Chic 2  (mesh!)
Skin: Glam Affair – Mia Chic 2 Exclusive
Hair: Wasabi Pills – Claire (blondes pack) Fameshed June!
Pose: Esetica – Chic (at Chic 2 until June 24)

Look of the day – Blue Skies

May 26, 2012

Nothing but blue skies today! It’s a gorgeous, sunny, day here. Of course, it’s always summer somewhere in Second Life, so you can wear this new flirty dress from e! Eclectic Apparel any day of the year. The Rachel mesh mini dress comes in a dazzling array of 18 colours, and each includes 2 options. The band below the bust comes in glitter (shown) or a subtle polka dot.  I added the League Daydream necklaces from Collabor88 since they fit my “blue skies” theme.

Look of the day: Vintage Polkadot

May 11, 2012

What with one thing and another, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. I didn’t realize how long until I opened WordPress to do this post. Life is good, but super busy.

For the last week I’ve been standing on my front porch in this outfit and I finally took pictures!

I’m wearing some of the latest mesh from e! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories. The Marion pencil skirt and Lola tube top came out last weekend. They are great pieces to mix and match, and when you put them together like this they make a sleek strapless dress.

Find them at the e! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories Mainstore or at Culture Shock where there is an exclusive colour of the Marion Mesh pencil skirt to benefit Médecins Sans Frontières.

Both pieces can be worn with other e! mesh pieces as well as other items from your wardrobe. It’s fun to mix it up and create new looks with older and new items.

I went for a bit of a vintage look with this Louise Brooks hair from Clawtooth by Clawtooth, and something about the polka dots and the slinky figure hugging look was just perfect with pearls and retro sunglasses from Donna Flora. I finished the look with this cute satin box clutch from Coco and the Alex t-strap heels from G. Field.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend and I’m happy to be back blogging. ♥ Ana

My store Estetica has a new location! It was all very sudden but I now have a nice waterfront location where the store doesn’t have to be in a skybox. Still the same build and everything in the same place for now.

Come check out our beautiful new spot!

Gos Desire Mesh Ankle Boots

March 12, 2012

The latest release from Gos Custom Footwear is these amazing mesh ankle boots, aptly named Desire.  They come in 5 colours which you can purchase individually or as a fatpack. The lovely thing about the fatpack is, as always with Gos, that it gives so many options to customize your boots. The metals included are silver or brass, and the toecap and heel can be metal as well as the strap hardware and buckle.

Check out a close up taken in world

Creator Gospel Voom always does such an amazing job on the textures. See the realistic leather texture, the stitching details, and the highlighting on both the leather and the metal parts. I love that these boots are realistic without being a photograph slapped onto the mesh. There’s a lot of work to get those textures just so.

Rigged mesh is not modifiable, so there are 5 standard sizes included, as well as a non-rigged pair which are scripted for both the texture changes and to resize. The rigged pair texture change via a hud.

Try on a free demo before you purchase. Available at the Gos Mainstore and on the SL Marketplace.

PS: Did I forget to mention that these are not only impeccably made, they are smoking hot sexy boots? Well, you could see that for yourself, anyway!
