Look of the day: Summer of Love

Like so many others, I headed over to Maitreya yesterday to check out their first summer release
of the year. I was unable to resist their new mesh jeans. These come in 8 colours and the fatpack
is a great value but I was good and just chose one colour for now.

I also grabbed their new Cupio mesh halter top in Cloudy. This top is a mesh tube top with a
relaxed fit and a beaded halter tie.  I got white but I may be back when I can pick another colour.
This top is very cute and I like the peek of tummy without it being a really short cropped top.

Of course I couldn’t leave without Maitreya’s first mesh hair! Siobhan is a long hair style with a
lovely big floppy hat. My only criticism would be that for me, I’d like some lighter colour hat
options for summer. They are all pretty dark except for one yellowish straw.  I think these will
also look amazing come fall though so there’s a lot of wearability. Of course in SL your head
doesn’t get hot so you can wear a black hat with impunity!

I finished this summer day look with the N-Core Etoile wedge sandals in black and some great
accessories that I had in my inventory. Mandala’s Takara bangles, the Secret Store’s Funky Tango
Bag and Coco gift belt which is no longer available. I’ve had it since January 2009 and worn it a lot!

I feel like Ana needs to jump in her VW Van and head down to Venice Beach or the Haight-Ashbury.

Look of the day: Vintage Polkadot

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

Look of the day: winter warmth, recycled.

Our store is participating in 2 Christmas events that both start this weekend, The Snowflake
Experience and the For the Love of Ice Festival. We’ve all been running in circles trying to
get all of our projects done, and while I am far from done I realize it’s been a while since I posted.
So I decided to do a quick look of the day.

The Highlands was hit by a blizzard this week, and that, coupled with the wintery / holiday events
going on has me in the mood to bundle up. I was actually looking for an outfit for a vendor
picture and I dug out some things I picked up last year that I still love.

My hair with toque from fri.day was the first thing I thought of, then I grabbed this Winterstock
sweater from Artilleri, a pair of my favourite jeans from Armidi and these great ankle boots
from Coco.  They were a group gift last Christmas, and the black is still available on their gift wall.

My skin is Joy from Très Blah at the 111 event. This one is sold out but there are still some of the
other 2 skins available.

Ok, back to work!  Hope to see you at the Snowflake Experience or the Ice Festival this weekend!

Spending Spree!

So last week I kind of went on a bit of a spending spree! I started with the Gos Docs which I have had my eye on for a while. I couldn’t decide which colour, and in the end the deal for the fatpack was just too good to resist. 9 colours! I also picked up a couple of the lovely new spring  floral polishes which I will show after the break.

I have been seeing Mandala jewellery all over the feeds but hadn’t bought any yet, so I spent some time over there ogling everything and trying to narrow it down. These new Roxe floral leggings from Emery were what brought it all together, I bought the pink jewellery to pick out the pink of the flowers.

My next stop was Maitreya where I bought one of the new Camden jackets, in the slate to pick out another colour from the leggings.

Last but not least, I remembered seeing these pink Baby T’s at Pixel Mode when I bought my black ones. They go perfectly with the Mandala jewellery so I scooped them up and headed home to put my looks together.

On the left is the casual out and about look, with the Camden jacket, leggings, the LBD part of fri.day’s Reverie dress, and the Docs in pink. Just the Amida necklace and the Takara nails in pink from Mandala.

On the right I paired the same leggings with the Black lace ruffle skirt from Coco, the tube part of Madsy’s Lace and Tube top (no longer available) and the pale pink Baby T’s. I heaped on the Mandala jewellery, adding the Takara bangles and the Amida earrings.

I had a great shopping spree, and I found lots of other lovely things I want to buy!

Look of the Day

Today’s look started with me messing about with the Madsy lace top & tube layers. I added the Isis sheer shirt from Zaara, some jeans and slouchy ankle boots. Throw on a belt and a vintage bowler hat and she’s out the door. Where is she going? And what is in her huge tote bag?

The Yfke bag is the only brand new thing today, it’s Pacadi Jasha’s subscribo group gift. It comes filled or empty, and it completed my look perfectly.

City Girl – Look of the Day

I started my look with this pencil skirt from Coco. Only 50L at the mainstore, proceeds to the Red Cross for Haiti. I got this Silk Floral Shirt at Aoharu after seeing it on someone inworld. She very kindly shared where it was from. Turns out it is a men’s shirt, but I did as she had done and resized the collar and cuffs. Perfect.

For accessories I started with this white Vinyl Quilted bag from Dark Mouse then added my Vaudevillian shoes from Anexx (DU3, no longer available) and nylons from Sheer. Artilleri’s Paula Glasses (black) are fast becoming my regular glasses. My colour change bauble jewellery is from Miriel and is no longer available. Sigh. So sad when amazing creators close their stores. For skin I went with 5th & oxford’s Brooke in Kitty. Nicole hair from Decoy finished my look.

Ce matin sur l’avenue – Look of the day

Today is the final day of the Aoharu sale, and last night I finally went back and bought the gorgeous fur jacket in silver, which I have been eyeing for some time.

My look of the day today had to centre around the jacket, and my Maitreya Gold Shanti sandals, which match perfectly. This Coco shirred mini dress in black (group gift still available in 4 colours) and Paper Couture onyx jewellery completed the look.

5th & Oxford’s Brooke skin in Nightfall had just the look I wanted, and I dug out an old favourite, ETD‘s Ana updo.

I felt stylish, like I had been out to a very glam Gallery opening or a night on the town, so I headed out looking for a great place to take pictures. A search for Paris lead me to a group of Paris Academies sims, this photo is taken on the roof of an art gallery, looking across to the Eiffel tower.
