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.

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.

Sweet Rosalie: Newness from 5th & Oxford, fri.day, Scribble and Estetica

This post is packed full of lovely things that have come out in the past couple of weeks. First up are the sweet floral Rosalie baby doll dresses from 5th & Oxford. Available in 6 base colours with the same floral pattern, they come with 2 versions of the same skirt, one with pearl buttons down the back. I am only showing 2 colours because SL hates me and I’ve been trying for a week and a half to get this post done! As alway from 5th & oxford, this dress is beautifully hand drawn.

The hair I’m wearing is the latest from fri.day, Hailey and Hailey 2, shown in Dramatic Red which is my favourite shade. Fri.day hair is always perfect on me, and I love this casual shoulder-length style.

Last but not least, I’m wearing the brand new Glass Slippers from Scribble. Radio Signals has a haybale at Shoe Fair with these beauties in a whole jewel box of colours. Available at the shoe fair until August 22nd, then at the mainstore.  Radio has contributed a pair of these to the prize pack for the Shoe Fair flickr contest, see the Shoe Fair blog to find out more.

The poses are from one of my new releases for Estetica, and are also available exclusively in our booth at Shoe Fair until August 22nd. 20% of everything in the booth will go to benefit Soles4Souls.

The glasses are all new from Reek, the unisex Park Shades are colour change with a hud. They can be either sunglasses or clear, and are full of retro nerdy cuteness!

Accessory Fair 2010 – {Zaara}

Zaara Kohime is the amazing owner and designer behind {Zaara}, a boutique that has become well known for it’s traditional Indian and fusion designs. The wonderful thing about {Zaara} is that not only is the style there, the quality is unsurpassed. I know if I buy something there, it will look as beautiful as it does on the vendor. Zaara has a booth at the Accessory Fair 2010 which is decorated in the same gorgeous textures as her mainstore and sim.

At her booth you will find a selection of her remarkably beautiful jewellery, in contemporary and traditional Indian styles. After you have been to the Fair, be sure to visit the Zaara sim, it is well worth a visit just to explore, and of course there are many more things to buy there!
