Look of the day – Happy Autumn

 

*waves frantically* Hey it’s been ages since I had time on SL – RL is all consuming at the moment.
In a good way,  though. I finally got some time and energy to log on and of course did a bit of
shopping!

My look of the day began with the idea of putting together a new fall outfit. I started off at
ColdLogic where I picked up this “farrell” top in coal. This is a layered shirt and sweater style,
which I love for these cooler fall days. I teamed it with the “giles” skirt in stone and these
great cable knit tights from Jane.

I accessorized with older items from my inventory, my favourite Curvacious boots from Gos,
a bag from The Secret Store, jewellery from Maxi Gossamer, and sunglasses from Mon Tissu.
The phone pose prop set is from my store Estetica.

We’ve had  a lot of grey days here lately, but today is sunny and clear. Happy autumn, everyone!

Look of the day: Glimmer girl

E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories just released the Glimmer mesh minidress. This sparkly, glittery version of their popular Vertigo minidress is all glammed up and ready to party!

Featuring the same softly draped, deep sexy back and belted miniskirt, Glimmer comes in 8  glittering jewel tones plus gold and silver.

I paired it with N-Core‘s Coquette pumps Glitter edition for extra sparkle.

Undefined Lilies released these lovely brambleramble earrings today and I couldn’t resist. These dark purple ones are just like glowing juicy blackberries! They come in 8 colours, and are very prim heavy so my dreams of a matching necklace may never be fulfilled!

The last brand-new thing I’m wearing today are these glorious Utopia eyes from Ikon. Ikon Innovia has rebranded his Fashism store. Simply called Ikon, it has all the Fashism eyes plus this new line of Utopia eyes. Love.  So far I’ve picked up 3 colours including this Deep Cerulean. See the closeup for more detail of the eyes and those lovely earrings.

Look of the day – beachy and breezy

Today’s look is inspired by my new land! I have a home again at last, on protected mainland water. So I was feeling fresh and beachy and I put together this look starting with the Breezy mesh shirt from E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories. This short-sleeved open cotton shirt is great for layering and can be worn super casual as I have here, or with a nice wide trouser, pencil skirt or dress, for a business casual look.

The Breezy shirt is available at E! Eclectic Apparel & Accessories mainstore or at March Mesh Madness. Try a free demo, all mesh clothing from E! comes in 5 standard sizes.

As obsessed with mesh as I am, it’s great to combine new things with old favourites from your inventory. I chose the cafe shorts from Surf Couture since the colour looked good with the shirt, at least with my lighting. These Tennessee slip-ons from Reek are great colour-change flat espadrilles, ideal for a day at the shore. I’ve had these Gos sunglasses for 2 years but I wear them again and again. Love the colour / texture changing options that Gos products provide.

Mix and Match with new mesh from ColdLogic

March Mesh Madness is coming March 1 and the coldLogic team has been hard at work cranking out new releases ever since their grand opening. The most recent release includes wide leg trousers and an assortment of tops that mix and match.

Here I’ve put together 2 outfits using coldLogic separates, and with a change of clothes, used the same shoes, hair, and accessories to create an evening look with a coldLogic mesh dress.

At the top right, the Buckley skirt in coal is paired with the Segel top in plum. Add these great mesh pumps from Ingenue at the Festival of Sin and Maitreya’s oversize leather satchel, and you’re ready for work, shopping, or lunch with friends.

Replace the top and pants with the Marsh dress in grape and you are ready for the evening, although this maxi dress could just as easily be dressed down for a casual day out.

For the daytime look bottom right, I’ve put the Lane top in Berry together with these great Mazza wide leg trousers in navy and layered a sheer navy tank underneath. For accessories these Gatsby mesh pumps from Ingenue in navy, and a bag from Bare Rose. Add some lovely jewellery from Donna Flora and you have a smart business casual look.

Slip off the separates, and add the Hendricks dress in plum, and you’re all set for lunch with the girls or for date night with your sweetheart. I love the richness of this plum and navy combination.

Check out these and lots more mesh separates and dresses at the ColdLogic Mainstore, and head over to March Mesh Madness when it opens this Thursday.

Look of the Day – One night in Paris

Yesterday I had a bit of a catastrophe, I wore my entire shoe folder! After spending most of the day taking off shoes I finally got myself sorted out and put together this outfit.

I started with the Thecla boots from lassitude & ennui that were one of my Shoe Fair purchases, and this Eglantine jacket from the Secret Store. The charcoal version was their Lazy Sunday item this
week. If you hurry you can still scoop it and the Embroidered flare pants for just 75L each.
The jacket has a mandarin collar and stripe detail, sculpted flower and buttons in white.

This close up shows of the details of these gorgeous boots. I love the heel, the buttons and the damask pattern on the foot. The stitching on the leather toe cap and calf  is an especially nice detail. Honestly I could have bought out their whole booth at Shoe Fair if I’d had more lindens!

I headed over to the newly reopened Cupcake sim to take some pictures. It’s beautifully done, although I was so laggy with the shadows enabled that I didn’t explore too much. I’ll have to go back when more shops have moved in.
