Sn@tch + Gos Boutique = Swoon! [9/52]

I have a tendency to hang out in my underwear a lot in SL — maybe just ’cause I can! Fortunately there are a lot of talented designers making underthings that you really don’t WANT to cover up. This newish set from Sn@tch is absolutely one of my favorites! It has a beautiful texture (available in many colors), and the mesh corset is just perfection on me! I’m pretty picky about mesh, and how it works with both my shape and my animations — but this corset works just beautifully. The cut of the piece avoids the areas where I often like to depart from standard sizing, AND it avoids covering the areas where animations will often break through the mesh. Perfect!

And what goes better with lingerie than strappy heels. These sexy sandals from Gos Boutique definitely fit the bill!

I’ve been a grey-eyed girl in SL for about as long as I can remember. But when I recently decided to move to brown eyes, I went to one of my favorite eye stores, IKON, to re-stock. I got there just as Ikon Innovia was updating her latest release, Lucid eyes. These are gorgeous, reflective eyes with lots of sparkle. I’m wearing the coffee-colored eyes — but be sure to check out the full color range available at IKON.

In case anyone hasn’t been paying attention — one of my favorite skin-makers is back on the grid and gearing up to give us more awesomeness! Tuli has opened up shop on the Cupcakes sim and is participating in their Valentine event thru tomorrow. She’s offering a Valentine version of one of my all-time favorite faces, Claire. See all the various options offered on Tuli’s blog.

I’m also wearing an adorable hair from Elikatira — from her huge clearance sale! The sale runs thru Feb. 23 — but don’t wait ’til the last minute! So many choices… And the fantastic jacket you are getting just a glimpse of here is from this month’s round of FaMESHed, from Emery. I’m totally in love with this jacket and fat-packed it immediately! So great for so many looks, and very easy to wear.

Today I’m showing you a quick look-of-the-day with Sn@tch’s current Sn@tch-n-Grab special — an adorable sweater/skirt set. The sweater is a system layer with sculpted cuffs and collar, and the skirt is mesh. Super-cute together, but you could also wear them separately. The sweater comes with a variety of heart-colors, but of course I had to choose valentine-red! This special price will be available until Wednesday~~

Today’s look features two fantastic pieces. The gorgeous blouse is from Kunglers, available now at The Dressing Room Fusion. It’s mesh, but such an easy fit! The rich fabric and high neck make it appropriate for a variety of occasions, and the peekaboo sides make it just sexy enough to show off a little bit.

I’ve paired the blouse with skinny leather pants from Maitreya’s latest collection. Maitreya is doing some of the best mesh clothing out there, and these pants are outstanding! They’re a very versatile wardrobe staple, and the zipper details just make me swoon!

Check out yesterday’s post for a better look at the skin I’m wearing — also available now at TDR Fusion~

This morning I’m wearing a lovely new skin for me, Giorgia, from Akeruka. It’s definitely a skin for redheads and gingers! This makeup is available at The Dressing Fusion right now, and is a great way to try out a skin designer, if they are new to you! I’m not sure where we are in this cycle of TDR, so if this one catches your eye — hurry!

I love bodysuits, and actually wear them around a lot (which is one of the beauties of SL!) And I’m pretty sure I own most every bodysuit Ivey has done in recent years. This latest is her Sn@tch-n-Grab special this week (changes on Wednesday). I love, love, love the lace insets on the leg! The pack includes a whole variety of colors, so be sure to get over there before Wednesday and pick these up for a steal~

Happy Friday, my friends~ Like many of you, I always look forward to another Fifty Linden Friday …. and that round of shopping inevitably leads to even more shopping! Today I picked up the mesh racerback tank from Miel. (and the pants are a previous FLF item from Miel) I’m loving everything she is putting out these days! And I especially love that she is putting her 50L stuff, including the demos, on the marketplace — what could be easier than that??

I’m also wearing the lovely Renee skin that Glam Affair has at Collabor88 this month (always an amazing deal!) And tho’ I’m not usually a blue-eyed girl, I couldn’t resist these indigo eyes from Insufferable Dastard’s VIP group gift for January. They are from her City Lights line, and some of my faves!

Have a terrific weekend!

Happy New Year, my friends! Hope yours is getting off to a terrific start — mine is stupendous! My plurk and flickr friends already know that I got (sl)married on Christmas… so I’m still in the giddy honeymoon stage — bear with me!

One of the things I love about a new year is taking a look at a fresh clean year stretching out in front of me, and thinking of some of the things I’d like to enjoy and pursue. I’m not nearly ambitious enough to take on a 365 project — but I think I’m going to shoot for a 52 LOTD project :)

This week is a fun rave-ish look for a club event, and I really enjoyed putting it together. Color makes me happy — and a rainbow of color, even more so! One of the lovely things about getting acquainted with some of the club/nightlife sub-cultures in SL is discovering a whole world of specialty designers that I don’t often see on the fashion feeds. Club-goers pass this information around in their own networks, and there are some really thriving little businesses out there.

My adorable hair is from new-to-me designer, A&Y. The hair style is fairly simple, but the real beauty of this hair is all the fun stuff in it! And each little piece, including some of the hair strands, are color change — so you can wear crazy rainbow rave hair, or something a little more subdued and/or color coordinated. And jumping to the bottom (see pics below), you’ll see my stupendous boots from also-new-to-me creator, NeurolaB Inc. Not only do these boots look great, with a lovely shape — but they come with a multitude of texture changing options, including the neon lights. What you can’t see in the picture is that the lights around the base of the boots are animated, and you can change the animation of the lights to a variety of patterns (or static), which is so much fun for clubbing. If you haven’t checked out either of these designers before — be sure to take a look!

Check out the credits for all the terrific pieces in between … they are classics, and will stay in my wardrobe for a very long time!

Happy New Year, my friends … make it a good one!

Last Call for FaMESHed-Nov. Cycle

I’m going to sneak in one last fashion post today to show you a great little dress from Cracked Mirror — currently at FaMESHed. The November cycle of FaMESHed is coming to a close, so hurry over if you haven’t had a chance yet.

I’m also wearing a very fun ring that I picked up at the Unhinged fundraiser event, offered by Sakide in a gacha machine. You’ve got a little more time to visit that event, so be sure to go and check it out. You’ll see some familiar designers, and you might see quite a few who are new to you! Much of the event is made up of gacha machines, but there are also some items you can purchase directly, and even a few gifts here and there.
