Look of the day – Meshed up!

Today’s look started with some new things from Ingenue, Whippet & Buck, and Fri.day.

The Soft.Cami is Fri.day’s first mesh release! This cropped mesh cami has spaghetti straps,
a deep back and a softly flowy feel. I’m wearing it in Lime which is one of 4 Stumblebum
colours.  The full line of 12 colours has also been released. The regular colours are
more pastel shades, while the Stumblebum colours are all brights.

My skirt is also mesh, and is Whippet & Buck’s item for this round of Collabor88.
Available in 8 colours, this highwaisted herringbone tweed wrap skirt has great
button details and deep pockets.

The Jive mesh shoes from Ingenue are also at Collabor88.  These two-tone suede
wedges have high cork heels and subtle stitching details. Love!  The one area
where we definitely need more mesh items is footwear!   Choose from 5
colours. Shown in fawn.

Dutch Touch – Megan and New skin Sterre

Sterre is the latest skin from Dutch Touch, currently available in 4 tones for members of the VIP
group to purchase for just 550L.  I had recently bought my first DT skin, Megan and the two skins looked similar to me, so I went for a darker tone that I think really suits the stronger features of Sterre. The nose, cheekbones and eyebrows are all a bit different to Megan, although
it was less noticeable to me in the cream tone so for Sterre I went for fudge.

Like all the recent DT releases, Megan and Sterre are sold with a basic bare face, so that you can
add your own makeups on the tattoo layer. Dutch Touch creator Iki Ikarus has created a line of
eyeshadows (13 packs to choose from) and lipsticks so that you can mix and match your looks
using the multiple layer option of viewer 2.  Included options are different cleavages (shown above) for anyone’s tastes and mole / freckle skins.

As you can see from these unedited full body pics, these skins have a nice body too, with a cute
bum and nicely done cleavage and collar bones.

Demos are free in store, and the VIP price of Sterre will surely be for a limited time. So head over to Dutch Touch and see if Megan, or Sterre will be your new face. Sterre shape is also
free for VIP group members.

New Slouch Boot from Gos Custom Footwear – Your new winter boots

New from Gos Custom Footwear is the gorgeous Slouch Boot. Available in 10 colours, and as always customizeable. Change the metals to silver or gold, change the wood on the clog sole, change the straps and the boot itself. With the fatpack version you get all ten colours for near limitless options. Boots come 2.0 ready with tatoo layer to hide the foot, but for those of us still clinging to 1.23 viewer the invisiprim can be turned on in the extras menu. These boots are one piece so they only take one attachment point and move smoothly with your AO.

They are the quality you expect from Gos, from the beautiful sculpts to the textures, to the menu options. Make a copy and delete scripts from the menu for a low-lag version. Make sure you don’t delete scripts from the original! But this is a great option especially if you are having trouble teleporting. I’m showing just 5 of the 10 colours here but I’ve been working my way through all of them!

I love the fitting scripts – not just a simple resize,  choose which way your boots need to be resized.  In my case I always need to make them just a bit wider, it’s great to be able to do this without enlarging the whole boot.

Try on a free demo at the Gos mainstore, you will be impressed!

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!

Details:
Skin: Très Blah – Joy 2 (pale) Limited edition for 111, no longer available
Hair: fri.day – Jennifer.Winter (Dramatic Red)

Boots: Coco – Black ankle boots

Anchors Aweigh! Whippet & Buck LeLook Exclusive

Whippet and Buck just released these lovely new Anchored Frocks as a LeLook exclusive.
In 2 colour variations (alabaster/cherry, cherrry/alabaster, navy/alabaster and navy/gold)
each comes with the camel or white belt option on the sculpted skirt. The softly wrapped
sweetheart bodice is very flattering, and I especially love that I walked in this skirt without my
hips sticking out all the time and with very minimal adjustment.

I styled it 2 ways, both with legs covered because it’s cold here! I nearly added a jacket too but
I wanted to show off the dress. Once again I’m wearing my new skin from Curio (Yum, in Cherries
Jubilee) and for accessories jewellery from Ticky Tacky, glasses from Gos Custom Eyewear, bag
from LeLutka.  My shoes are the most recent releases from Shiny Things. I am especially in love
with the Kelsey pumps.

Quick and cozy

Today I’m wearing new things from two of my favourite stores. First up fri.day, Darling Monday
released these soft sheer Dion shirts. In 10 colours these are kind of like a Henley with the neck
buttoned on the diagonal and finished with a small tie.  I’m wearing them with fri.day tank tops
underneath above, and with a bra from Luck Inc in the lower picture. These are great for layering
and with the glove layer on they come down over the hand for a really cozy look. Classic comfort
and perfect execution is fri.day’s hallmark, and you can try a free demo to see if you like it first.
I love this.

My skin is one of the two brand new releases from Curio by Gala Phoenix. Called Yum, this skin is
a whole new face with a slightly wider nose and the most luscious lips.  A fatpack will get you 8
makeups, two of them exclusive to the fatpack, with light and dark variations of the tone, and two
brow colours. Then double that for all of the above with freckles! 64 skins is an amazing fatpack
value! The free demo has all the skins so you can see all the makeups before you buy.
There was a second skin, Autumn, also released yesterday. Autumn has a narrower nose and a more
typically “Curio” face.  Try them both and see which one’s for you.

Details:
Skin: Curio – Yum Petal (Dark)(shown in fatpack special makeup, cranberry crush and cherries jubilee)
Hair:  Elikatira – Vivid and Mood (red 05)
Tops: fri.day – Dion (shown in Eagle, Rose and Black)
Undershirts: fri.day – layering.tank (scoop neck) in blue and white, Luck Inc – Black Sequin bra

LOTD: Cowl neck sweaters, perfect for fall!

One thing I love about fall is cozy warm sweaters, especially cowl necks. I can’t stand turtle necks
but the soft folds of a loose cowl neck are so comfy. Today I have 2 outfits, both featuring new
cowl neck sweaters from two of my favourite shops in SL.

On the left is the outfit I was wearing around for a few days since I love this top so much.
New from Ingenue is the Aquarellist cowl neck top. Shown here in plum and paired with one of
my favourite Vintage Basics from Ingenue, the Memo tweed pencil skirt. Designer Betty Doyle
creates gorgeous clothing and shoes alike, these tops are an exclusive at her LeLook location.

On the right is the new Seasons.Sweater from fri.day. I love this so much. Well, I love everything
from fri.day. They are the kind of clothes I like to wear in real life. Funnily enough I bought a
cowl neck sweater in these exact colours in real life, a couple of weeks ago. So I had to have it!
I’ve paired it with some fri.day jeans, and these new Olea boots from Surf Couture. I feel cozy
and just a little bit country in this. Which is fun for kicking around my new island home.

I’m wearing two of the new hairstyles from the amazing Elika Tiramisu. I was so sad when she
closed down ETD but she’s back with gorgeous new hair and a new Elikatira [e] brand.
Mood, on the left, is the most perfect gorgeous sexy long hair I’ve ever had in Second Life.
I must confess I bought a few styles… just one other is Rush on the right, a slightly disheveled
short style that’s cute and casual. Love.
