LOTD – Tell me how does it feel?

I was going to call this look “Blue Monday” because I started putting it together on Monday.
But what with one thing and another it’s Wednesday now that I have it all done! So instead I
went with a lyric from the song.

Hope your Wednesday is not so blue!

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.

New Reek Cardis and Gos Desert Boots!

Riq Graves of Reek and Gospel Voom of Gos Custom Design are two of my favourite male designers.  They both excel at sculpting and texturing, producing consistently high quality, stylish and fun products.  Today I am featuring a new release from each of these talented guys.  From Gos Custom Footwear, the brand new Desert Boots, and from Reek, the Papercut Cardigans. Since both items can be worn by both men and women, I created a couple of looks for each gender.

The Desert Boots from Gos are as beautifully made and scripted as you would expect from Gos. If you fatpack, which I highly recommend, you can mix and match the soles, laces and boot colours. They come in a variety of colours in leather, suede and 2 tartans.
I think Gos was surprised when I was so keen on these, as he was thinking of them as a men’s shoe. And they are a great casual men’s shoe, that perfect place between sneakers and dress shoes. But if you were around in the 80s, you will remember that women can and did wear these shoes too. I love them with these casual looks. Although they come sized for men, they are resize scripted you can easily size them down to fit a size 0 foot, as I did here.

The Reek Papercut Cardigans are another great casual piece that will soon become a staple in your wardrobe.  With an amazing 17 colours to choose from, these cardigans come with 3 styles of collar (plain, hood down and hood up), two styles of cuff (plain and rolled), and 2 body sizes for women. All the pieces come in men’s and women’s for one price.

Both of these items are going to be solid staples of my fall wardrobe. Honestly I just kept making outfits with them, I probably could have shown you a dozen looks for women.
The men’s not so much, but that’s only because I don’t have that many men’s clothes to make outfits with!

For a limited time, you can scoop up the Gos Desert Boots in Sand for just 195L on the new Marketplace,  all the other colours and the fatpack are there too, great to treat yourself or for gift giving!

New from Tiny Bird, Reek, Actchio and Shiny Things

So many gorgeous new things have come out in the last little while!  I’m showing you a few here, starting with the Ginger boots from Shiny Things. These ankle boots are so cute, with 6 shades to choose from, they have flowers on the sides and a really nice leather texture. I’m wearing them in oil.

Tiny Bird has long been known for lovely hair, but lately Autumn Hykova has begun to create some really nice clothing. A couple of weeks back she released her Saint Augustine dress, this week she has a new dress out, the Painted Flowers dress which comes on all layers and includes 2 versions of the top, one with a tee under (shown) and prim sleeves, and one with just the strapless dress.  Also new this week are the Mykonos tops, shown on the left in teal. I can imagine this top in real life, light and breezy in cotton, and with some delicate white embroidery detail. I love these. (can you tell?)

My friend Silver Milneaux has 2 new styles of tights out at her store Actchio. Shown are the Oriental Fishnets in pale pink, these and her Rose Tights are available in 12 colours.

Reek release new glasses this week! The Junior Shades are colour change and so cool and dorky. Love! They come with an easy to use hud to change the frame and lens colour and lens opacity.

Of course the fri.day sale is on! Everything is either 50, 75 or 100 lindens. New releases are also coming, and will be released at sale prices! The sale runs until June 12, so you have lots of time. I had these trousers in a few other colours, but picked up the white ones at the sale (along with rather a lot of other things….)

New Reek Slides and new hair from fri.day!

So the other day I headed out with Litzi, Ashlee and KawaiiNicole to take some snaps in Reek’s new sandals and socks. The search for a place where we could all rez enough to get some pictures without crashing took longer than planned.

I still managed to snap the four of us in all our dorky hotness. As you can see, Reek has you covered for summer. We all dug out our Reek bikinis, board shorts, tees and some of the fun accessories for which Reek is so well known.

This is a long post so please click through for all the details!
Check out the detail on the shoes:

The Reek Slides can be worn with or without socks, and come in 14 colour combinations. They are a sporty style slide sandal, with immaculate sculpted details, from the bumps on the sole to the stitching. There are 10 different sock colours included, and the toe on the sculpted foot of the socked version is colour change to match the socks.The insole is also colour change.

In the second image I am wearing the brand new Michelle 2 hair from fri.day. Michelle and Michelle 2 feature the same casual  looped up pony, with different bangs options. See below for front and back views:

I always love fri.day hair, and I came up with a couple of looks using Michelle that I will post later. It’s a nice laid back style that can look great at the beach, tucked under a hat or be dressed up. I think what I love best about fri.day hair is that it’s almost always something I can see myself enjoying in real life.

I have been shopping up a storm this week and have lots of new pretties to share with you! Stay tuned!
