Back to Business

Shangri-La-3-18-2014

I have missed blogging and I hope you’ve missed me too because as long as this urge lasts you’re stuck with me.  Photography has almost always been a part of my SL and lately I have seen some really great pieces and I so desperately want to learn the techniques to make better images.  Any tips or tutorial links in the comments are much appreciated.

Most of what I am wearing is from the current March 2014 “Back to Business” round of Collabor 88.  Credits are available after the cut.

Gorgeous Mesh Hair from Elikatira

I’m really excited about mesh and this hair is one of the many reasons why I wish more people would update their viewers and embrace mesh.  For a long time I’ve always really been irritated about how our side braids or even longer hairstyles were forever going through our shoulders.  NO MORE!

Here’s just a quick rundown of the styling credits:

New skin for me and my new daily is from Filthy.
The eyes are my normal from Poetic Colors and the lashes are really the best I’ve found and can be found at FTL.
The gorgeous jewelry is from Amorous, if you haven’t been to this store you will not be disappointed.
This sweater dress can be found at Addict and really is a must have for the coming spring.

52 Weeks of Color – Coral

Shangri La Style 1-15-2012

When Luna announced the color of coral I didn’t find anything coral in my inventory so I was left browsing the tons and tons of items on market.   I pleasantly came across this skirt which I purchased.  I hadn’t realized how long it was and when I put it on I knew the Coral pumps from Hucci that I had weren’t going to work so I went to find a shirt instead.  I ended up coming across this cute top from The Sea Hole but with the shape of the neckline and style of shirt with the skirt it wasn’t working… paired with this white crop jacket though, it’s perfect.  Then was the dilemma of shoes… at this point I’d already purchased the skirt and top so I was hoping to find boots in my inventory and I tried on a few pairs before it clicked. “I KNOW WHAT BOOTS!” I blurted out to my mom and co-blogger.

Accessories Make the Look – LOTD 1/7/2012

Today’s look is all about the accessories.  I started with a very basic outfit, using mesh pieces from Maitreya and celoe.  The fun starts with the accessories!  Brand new mesh shoes and clutch from Hucci forms the color palette of the outfit.  Necklaces from Zaara, earrings from Amorous, and a very funky hairstyle from new hair store Likeli completes this look.

It Girl – Part 2

Yesterday I blogged this gorgeous new hair and today I wanted to go ahead and give you the full dose.  I had paired the Blacklace corset with a pair of jeans and these sexy black boots.  If you look closely at the corset it in this photo it looks a bit different and that’s because I’ve detached the sculpt attachment and let just the detailing of the system layer corset show.  As I mentioned yesterday this corset is only available for another week, that is until 1-13-2012 and after that will be discontinued permanently.

It Girl – LOTD

I’ve been kinda in a odd place with my av.  I like her appearance don’t get me wrong but 2+ years wearing the same skin gets boring.  Thing is, there is no skin I love more than the Jolie skin from Dutch Touch on my avatar.  When I put a different skin on her, she doesn’t doesn’t feel like “me” anymore so I’m sticking with it for awhile longer.  I did go for a bit of a hair color change though and I’m totally loving this “new” me.

Please don’t overlook this absolutely gorgeous corset I am wearing either that’s only available 50% off until 1/13/2012 at Blacklace before it is permanently discontinued.  Don’t miss out on your chance to pick it up before it’s gone or you’ll be missing out for good.

PS. A huge thank you to Gogo for helping me get rid of those stupid lines on my images and the awful jaggy shadows.

52 Weeks of Color – Champagne

As many of you know, Luna Jubilee, started a 52 week of color challenge last year and each week bloggers were given a new color.  I think I got about 8 of the weeks and kept meaning to catch up and eventually decided there was no way I could pull it off.  Needless to say I was a happy girl when I saw that she was giving slackers like me another year to redeem themselves so without further holdup lets get this rolling.

Week One: Champagne

PS. I know this was probably my laziest blog post to date but I took this photo weeks ago and just now got to editing it up.  (Conveniently just in time for the new cycle of color challenges.)  Also, fair warning… my next post is going to be pretty lazy as well because that photo is from the same day I took this one so same situation. <3

Maybe Turkey Day? – LOTD 11/24/11

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone that celebrates it. It may not be entirely obvious, but Thanksgiving inspired my look today.  This is a very typical me look, take a cute dress, throw on a jacket and heels and instant pulled together look.  I know you’re wondering by now, how did Thanksgiving inspire this look?
