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.

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.

Gos Desire Mesh Ankle Boots

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!

Look of the day: Shop til you… crash?

Today’s look also includes lots of the new mesh items I splurged on to treat myself. I do love these Radical Boots from Maitreya. The first boots I ever bought in SL were Maitreya’s “Dune” boots in black. These new boots are like an updated version of those and I think are destined to be a new wardrobe staple as the others were back in 2007/08.

Maitreya’s leather satchel is a nice big slouchy bag that matches perfectly with my new boots. I’d love a RL version of this to hold all my junk!

I picked up this tunic dress from Jane and then spent way too long looking for pants or leggings to wear under it. I settled on these cords from Doppelganger which I’ve had for ages. It’s a relaxed, comfortable look. Perfect for a day of shopping or for teleporting around SL looking for nice spots to take pics… ahem.

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.

Hair Fair 2010 – Clawtooth by Clawtooth – Post 5

The lovely and fabulous Bubbles Clawtooth of Clawtooth by Clawtooth has done it again! Five brand new hairstyles available at Hair Fair right now! There’s a style here for any occasion, as always with a vintage feel that still works well with anything in your wardrobe.

From the top left,  My Shilova is a cute short style, with side swept bangs pinned back.  Rockin Rolls features divine Victory rolls and falls smoothly over the shoulders.  I featured You’re a Star in one of my previous hair fair posts, this one channels the fabulous divas of the silver screen like Veronica Lake. So glamourous. French Connection just may be my favourite of the five, with a simple colour change beret, side swept bangs and just the right length. I’m ready to go sit in a Parisian café with my sketchbook! Last but not least, Turnip Sorbet is a mid-length hairstyle with soft waves and blunt bangs.
