Tweed!!!

Tweed

OMG, guys… two of my favorite fashion items combined in one outfit! Tweed and a 3 piece suit for the girls! It will be out at the upcoming The Epiphany, which starts on the 15th and it is by Belle Epoque. Granted, this is one of the rares, it comes with a HUD for the customisation of the shirt, the tie, the vest and the suit itself, but… for die hard suit lovers like yours truly, Belle Epoque has the possibility to just buy the fatpack of the machine’s content… and then you have it all!
Needless to say, I didn’t bother playing the machine, but just splurged and went for the pack, even if that means I will be walking around with my hands in my pockets forever!!
Caveat: Maitreya only, but really… all of your body is covered… so go for it!

Also from The Epiphany, is my skin applier, Emiri, by Pink Fuel. YES, LeLutka love at a Gacha event! A great opportunity to score a totally adorable skin from one of SL’s best skinners for a crazy low price. The range of skin tones on this one is limited, but if it;s within your range, there are no crazy make ups, so basically every skin you get is super wearable!

Maple

When I saw this dress from Lybra at The Seasons Story it spoke to me. I picked out this beautiful rusty red Maple colour from all of the rich tones available. Much love for the poofy upper sleeves and the opera glove like lower ones. A very feminine neckline without being overly exposing and a mini skirt that just covers it all.
I’m wearing it with Dura‘s U90 hair, new out at Salon 52 and Ilaya‘s Cerys earrings.

I’m wearing Glam Affair‘s Nimoe on my LeLutka Vera head and picked up some make up from Alaskametro<3 at the soon to open Gloss event. She’s made a lovely winter palette that I adore!

Peachy

Behold a rare sighting of a red head Grazia! There was a time in my SL that I was a ginger most of my time but then I passed to white/pale blonde around 2010 and that is more me. However, I love the saturated coppers that several brands have and Besom has just updated her textures and they are beautiful!!! This blog feautures some of my Collabor88 haul. While the main sim was packed, so soon after opening, I had no issues whatsoever to get into the cam shopping sim!

Miwe

Miwe skin  on a selection of LeLutka heads

For January’s Collabor88, opening tomorrow, Glam Affair will have this pretty new applier for LeLutka (and also one for the Catwa girls, which I am sure will be covered here and there as well). I decided to show her on a couple of different heads, with my own shape, adjusted here and there for my personal preferences. What I have noticed with the latest skins for LeLutka is that they fit the latest heads (Aida Vera and Piper) better than their updated older sisters. While not dramatically visible, the facial and skeleton updates do have had their impact on how skin appliers behave on these heads!
But still, with some shape adjusting work, I think Miwe looks adorable on all 5 heads above!!

To clear your head

to clear your head

Nothing like a walk on the beach to clear your head every now and then. Followed by hot cocoa and whipped cream in your favorite beachside café that is. And if you are not the designated driver, splurge with a nice dash of rum… or Grand Marnier!

Caveat: the jacket and the cardigaan are not made to be worn together. Fiddling with the various available sizes gave me a satisfactory result for the pic to show off the various items, but should you decide to wear it “live” be prepared for clipping!

See you later!

I love wandering the Soul2Soul sims. Minnie Atlass and Boone Blanco do such a wonderful job landscaping and creating beautiful sims. Today I’m at the Highlands, ready for a hike of sorts. Well… if this were a real hike, I’d be horribly outfitted with my high heels and cute pleated skirt. Granted, the shoes have a sturdy block heel, but still… go figure!

This is beside the point though. One of the amazing things in SL is that you can actually go for a hike on your stilettos if you want to… or in stilettos and a flimsy corset, or wear pink and red together without people eyeing you… or wearing socks over tights because you like it!  OK, they may be eye-ing you.. but shake it off! They have their own fashion quirks you would never even think of pulling off. And guess what? That is awesome. Be you, be unique and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Resolutions

good morning

NYE… it’s over before you know it, and then a whole new year lays in front of you… where to start? Well, considering the mess in the kitchen, my suggestion is COFFEE,  if needed accompanied by some Tylenol, and then tackle that clutter! You do not want those bacteria to contaminate your new year’s day food, right? right?

Oh, who am I kidding? The coffee happened, but the kitchen is still a mess and food… I’ll order some if we get hungry. I’m not moving from this couch. Nope… not today. Tomorrow… maybe.
