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.

March Mesh Madness – coldLogic

More newness from March Mesh Madness in today’s look. I started with this cute jacket / tube combo from coldLogic. I like that you get the pieces to wear either together or separate. There are 8 colour combinations, and in each you get the jacket, tube top, and the 2 pieces together. I paired it with the coldLogic Mazza trousers for a delicious strawberry and chocolate combination.

I was very excited to find mesh jewellery at MMM! Maxi Gossamer has a line of inexpensive mesh jewellery. Buy the fatpacks of 4 colours for the best deal. I’m wearing the Pearl Daisy necklace in blood pearls (black and red). With this set you get a long/short necklace (shown), a short and a medium length necklace, and matching ring.

Look of the Day: Uptown Girl

Just a quick look of the day featuring some more lovely mesh items. The Ava dress from Ingenue has a subtle tone-on-tone floral pattern on the bodice, and an unpatterned pencil skirt. Mesh details include the pencil skirt prim, soft peplum and short sleeves. The deep V neck is still tasteful while allowing you to display a favourite necklace.

The SLink Glitter Peeptoe shoes are also mesh, and with the included HUDs you can not only tint the feet, change the nail colour and resize, but also change the bow colour. I’m wearing the black, which are more of a charcoal due to the glitter, and they include a black bow as shown or a white / grey bow option.

I’m very excited to be back blogging, so many pretties! Happy Shopping!

Look of the day – Chic shopping

Just strolling through a Parisian marketplace on a beautiful summer morning. Wearing my RezIpsa Loc summer floral print dress from the Chic birthday event. This pretty dress features a sculpted floral print skirt, strapless bodice and sash with a sculpted bow behind. Available in Cool as shown or Warm tone.

For a quick look of the day this photo took a while since my computer needs to think about a shadow picture for about 25 mins before getting it right!

Shoe Fair 2011 – Ingenue

I love Ingenue shoes! Creator Betty Doyle excels at creating vintage styles that look fabulous with even the most contemporary fashions.

Of course Ingenue has a booth at Shoe Fair 2011 and it is packed with the most recent releases.

Meet Nina, Talulla and Jane! Nina is a fresh flat with a bow in a deeper tone of the shoe colour. With 12 colours to choose from these look sweet with a summer dress or to dress up your jeans.

The Talulla heels are a sensible pump with a little bow on the back, in 15 colours all with a neutral beige piping detail and a softly rounded toe. Timeless and elegant.

Jane Wedge sandals are low heeled two colour summer sandals. They come in 12 fresh summer colour combinations, plus the one shown above right.  Jane Wedge sandal in Roses is Ingenue’s donation item. 100% of the sales of this colour will be donated to Soles4Souls.org.

As with all of Ingenue’s shoes, these are a bit more-ish… in other words,  you’re going to want more!

Ingenue – Spring Forward

If I told you how many attempts I had made to blog lately you probably wouldn’t believe me. SL has not been cooperating with me, crashing me when I try to take location shots, derendering my jewellery… Well, that’s how it goes some weeks.

I have been wearing this tank top from Ingenue for over a week, trying to get pics of all three colours, trying to get some image that I liked. When you love something you want to do it justice. Finally today at Ode after about 7 crashes I got this shot.

The top is called Spring Forward, and it comes in Grass (shown), Aqua and Berry. It’s an Ingenue LeLook exclusive and it is just perfect.  I love that the floral pattern is a deeper shade of the main colour because I tend to go for solids. This gives me some pattern but without adding more colours.  Basic tanks abound in SL, I love the details that elevate this one. The buttons and the pattern just give it enough interest.

I’ve been wearing them with everything you can imagine, shorts, jeans, capris, skirts… heels and flats. For this look I went with the Georgie Tapered Trousers from Whippet & Buck, some favourite jewellery from Mandala and new hair from Elikatira.

Look of the day: Spring is in the air

Although the weather where I live is grey and rainy right now, I’m feeling like spring in Second Life. That was the inspiration for today’s look. This light floral top from So Many Styles looks like the lightest cotton or chiffon print. I paired it with these Maitreya rolled jeans which are a favourite. Ingenue’s Clara flats are such a great basic shoe, since they don’t compete with the floral or the striped bag from Très Blah.

Speaking of basics, the skin I’m wearing is Megan by Dutch Touch.  It’s the first Dutch Touch skin I’ve ever bought, just because they never suited my shape. But Megan is a softer look, and I love it! The other cool thing with Iki’s new skins is that you buy the basic skin, with some options for brows and freckles, in the tone of your choice. Then lipstick and eyeshadow packs are sold separately.  I’ve added the smokey shadow that was in the recent Tuli group gift.
Also right now if you are a member of the VIP group (cost 250L), you can buy Megan in cream for just 400L.
