#371 It all starts with Jasmine

Post #371

With this versatile dress from Shey, you not only get two versions - mini and full length, you also get extensive huds allowing you to change the the mini dress and the opaque bottom section.  There is an excellent selection of both block colours and textures to choose from.

I have been a huge fan of Glamistry's footwear and hud system from the moment I discovered them. Glamistry shoes are beautifully crafted and come in a fantastic array of colours, and their amazing hud system is the cherry on top.  If you are wearing them and realise you need a different colour for your outfit, you can actually buy the new colour directly from the hud (and increase the pool of colour options you can use to mix and match).  Great for this blogger who spends most of her time half dressed or half undressed with a collection of demo signs floating above her head, while attempting to put a blog post together!

#370 A new twist on Sky


Post #370

This outfit from Sky is beautifully made and textured as you would expect from Sky Summerwind, with great strap and zip detailing on the skirt.  It comes with a hud allowing 5 texture changes for the skirt and top separately.  I am wearing it on my SLink mesh body and was wondering if I would have trouble with alphas for the leg but I had no issues at all, no alpha tweaking required.

My poses are from a new KaTink release - they are so dramatic, totally different to any I have seen before - and they seem to be just made for this outfit to show off the side details so well.  They transition beautifully and the set of 10 poses will be sold at Sneak Peek for 350L - that is a 50L discount for the fat pack.  Once the event is over, Gabby will be split into 2 sets - Set 1 and Set 2 and will be sold at the KaTink store for 200L each.  Sneak Peek opens it's gates on the 25th.

My shoes are a recent release from KC Couture for SLink high feet, and as always they come with an extensive hud allowing you to colour different parts of the shoe for total customisability (ok that is another word I just invented, but it fits!). 

I am so happy to see some new hair from Elikatira - e l i k a p e k a is one of my favourite hair designers, and her three new styles don't disappoint at all.  There are 7 colour huds to choose from, each containing wonderful textures and tones whatever your colour of choice.

#368 Gimme some Shorts

Post #367


One of my favourite pre-mesh outfits was a pair of shorts with a "boyfriend" jacket over it and strappy heels. Sadly, when I tried it on a few years ago, after the arrival of mesh, it looked incredibly dated (I am being nice here), the blouse and jacket being system with sculpty bits which stuck out at weird angles for the lower part of the jacket.  Shudders. 

Only last week I was thinking I need to find another outfit like that in mesh, then serendipitiously these great shorts by DE Designs landed on me, so the jacket hunt was on.  I haven't found it yet but I think the shorts look good with this cardigan by Blueberry (which comes with a dress option too). I had trouble finding a mesh top that would work under the cardigan, so - drum roll please - Zsa is blogging her first ever applier top! To be honest I am still not a fan, too much like going back to the days of system clothing, but I can see it's uses for layering under mesh like this.

The shorts come in both leather (black red and tan) and fabric (blue, forest and the tan I am wearing here), fitted for Belleza, SLink and Maitreya but there is no classic avatar option for this release for technical reasons. You do get a hud allowing you to hide the belt, or texture it in a choice of 4 colours, and two hardware. I am sure I will be blogging them again sometime soon.

And finally, a close up to show you again the gorgeous Aeryn from PXL, and one of my favourite jewelry sets from LNS Designs - I love the dark and light suns of the earrings. I also wanted to show you these eyes by Candace Hudson - it has been a while since I wore them but I will definitely be wearing them more - they are mesh and come in two Iris sizes, plus an easy resizer for the eyes themselves.
