#347 Some kinda gamine meets a whole heapa ramblings


Post #347


I am on a bit of a "short hair" kick at the moment so when I saw this one from Argrace I just had to go and check it out - and fell in love.  Though I have never had short hair in my life (apart from when it was not my choice), I have always admired women like Audrey Hepburn who could/can carry the gamine look off.  I really like the way this hair looks on Zsa, though her gorgeous skin has a part to play in that too - it is new from WoW, exclusive to the Designer Circle, and available in 5 different tones.

I was going to make this a huge blog post so I could show you more of the choices of this lovely little skirt from DE Designs, one of my favourite places for mesh rigged to mesh bodies.  However, I realised it would take me a while, so instead I will show them in different blog posts.  Will give you a bit of info though - they come in three choices - plaid, leather and fabrics.  No prizes for guessing which one I am showing here :).  The plaids are also available in red, black and tan, and in each pack you get the skirt rigged for Belleza, SLink, Maitreya and classic avatar.  Fatpacks are available.  I am wearing the Maitreya and had to do no tweaking at all.

The sneakers from Phunk and come with a texture change hud allowing 15 main colours, 6 choices of logo, and 8 choices for laces.  They are unisex, and very easy to resize.

My top is from one of my favourite shops, Sn@tch, but for some reason I have not really blogged much of their stuff, so I am going to try and feature them a bit more.  Their system works a bit differently to most stores but is very easy - you try on a demo, choose the size that fits, and then get the 8 colours in your size of choice.

My SLink nails are from the lovely Maia of Hello Dave and as they can't be seen properly in the pics, I have put the ad below.  I really really love the way she has combined fingers and toes on one hud.  I mean really really. Some day I should do a screenshot to show how many huds I have on my screen when I am putting together a blog post - it is a case of shifting them all round so I can peep around them to actually see my avvie.  So losing one hud is a very positive thing.  Thanks Maia!

#346 Pose Fair 2015 with Hopscotch and more ramblings

Post #346


Today's post shows a bunch of new releases.  First, I am showing all the poses contained within two of Hopscotch's pose packs for The Pose Fair.  They are called Pose Me Pretty, and have Chandni's unique pose creating talent stamped all over them - they are quite different to anything I already have and I am sure I will use them again and again.

Next comes this cute spring dress from Shey.  It comes with a texture change hud allowing a choice of 20 skirt, 20 top, 10 belt and 5 metal independent combinations.  The skirt options include both pattern and solid colours.  I always love Shey items, and that they come with such a lot of customisability (hey, I invented a word - the nearest my dictionary comes up with is combustibility and that is definitely not the word I want!) makes me love them even more.

And last but definitely not least come these amazing strapped heels from Illi, which come with a texture change hud giving you 14 colour choices for main, two independent straps and heel, and 3 for the metal and sole.  As if that isn't enough, there is also a colour picker on the hud, so you can literally colour the shoes in any colour you wish.

Oh, another finally, here is the ad for the gorgeous nail palette I have used, as you are unable to see my nails in the photo.  This is one of the new releases from the lovely Maia of Hello Dave. Maia, if you read this, I hope half red shoes don't count!

#345 Spring Ramblings & KaTink at the Pose Fair


Post #344


The starting point for this blog post was the stunning jewellery set from Zuri Rayna.  In the set you get necklace, earrings and bracelet, and there is also a separate headset to complete the set. Both are available in a gorgeous array of colours.  The hair I am wearing in the first photo wouldn't work with the head dress so I did a separate photo below - indulging myself in my love of close shots at the same time!  If you are curious as to why I didn't wear this hair for the whole shoot, it is simply because I love it so much I have worn it on quite a few blog posts, and wanted to ring the changes - and also I think the Ploom do is more in fitting with the princess like jewels from Zuri.

I have never blogged any Paisley Daisy items before, but have been a fan for a long time, and have had a little pile of their items in my "to blog" folder for ages.  I just love this gown, the addition of a few wispy flexi pieces really brings it to life - very subtle, but effective.   The texture of the gown is a beautiful muted paisley pattern.  As with a lot of Paisley Daisy items you get various options - I am wearing the solid top but you have a choice of sheer or solid, and fitted mesh or standard mesh sizes.  I am wearing the fitted mesh and it required no alpha editing on Maitreya Lara for it to fit perfectly.

Post #443


I am showing another gorgeous skin from the prolific Sawsan Secretspy, this time exclusive to Designer Circle.  The liner and lips come from the Charlize set at Relay for Life.   My hair is new from Argrace, who are fast becoming one of my favourite go to places for hair.

I am always happy to see a new release from Hudson's, Candace Hudson is one of my favourite designers, she has a great eye for textures, and I just love this little outfit.  All pieces can be worn separately including the front ruffle, and the set is also available in delicious almond and strawberry.

My cute little flatties from KC Couture come with 20 textures via hud, plus shine/no shine - I have the shine option on here and it shows you can get the shine affect on items even without materials.  In your pack you will get shoes rigged for Belleza, SLink and Maitreya, plus socks appliers for each pair of feet and a hud to change textures.
