LotD 118: Sailor

LotD 118

Blogettes, isn’t Musey adorable today? This is just an old outfit I came across in my inventory and it was too cute to *not* blog. So, despite all the events going on right now nothing here is new. I’m taking a small break. I’ve had to work all weekend in real life and haven’t had much time to blog, but that doesn’t mean  you don’t get something adorable in the meantime.

Style Notes:  The collar is a separate piece from the shirt and can be found on marketplace <here> for only 150L with full perms. Also, though these shoes from The Secret Store aren’t new, I haven’t blogged them before and they are just perfectly cute, my lil bloglings, and come in about a million color combinations.

Color Triple Play: Terracotta

Triple Play: Terracotta

Hellooo Bloglings! I’ve got a bit of a different Triple Play today. Usually, I take one piece of clothing and utilize it three different ways to present its versatility. Well, yesterday, Belgravia released these beautiful new dresses and I fell in love with this color. I wanted to show you all of them. So, I’m doing a color triple play: three dresses, one color.

The first dress is a gorgeous piece with silver inserts on the sides, which emphasize the curves of the hips.  The dress comes in nine colors and some colors have silver inserts and some have gold.

Triple Play: Terracotta

This dress is a more conservative piece but the front panel is perfectly made, giving it extra texture and interest. It comes in eleven color combinations.

Triple Play: Terracotta

I love the color interchange on these dresses and the wrinkling of the fabric is done beautifully and comes in tend color combinations. Overall, the metallic touches on the new collection are divine making the pieces feel luxurious without overdoing it and making them cheap.

Triple Play: FANATIK leather mini

My first Triple Play was in September and I thought it would only be a LOTD that happened to feature three looks, but just recently I did another one and now I’m going to do it again. I think this is going to be a new category for two reasons: mostly because I enjoy it but equally important is because it exemplifies how versatile specific pieces are and, therefore, how useful they can be. When this happens, maybe you are more likely to see them on your own avatar rather than see them on my avatar all the time, which is really the point, isn’t it (I mean other than the beautiful pictures, which I’m getting to!)?

Triple Play: FANATIK leather mini

I have no idea what inspired this look. It is inexplicable, but wandering around FaMESHeD and l’accessoires must have been good for me because it resulted in this. Besides, who could resist this new hair from Taketomi?

Style Notes: The leather mini from FANATIK comes in an array of colors from pastels to the dark brown I’m wearing here. You’ll notice on the red one that Musey wears in the last photo that the stitching detail is just divine. It is these small, unnecessary but complimentary details that really make a product stand out. Furthermore, these heels from FANATIK come with a HUD to color change the studs from gold to silver and back again as many times as your (or my) indecisive heart desires (how did they get that many spikes on one shoe?!).

Also, this new hat is from l’accessoires. Get the fatpack. I’m not encouraging you this time; I’m demanding it. The fatpack is 800L and each single hat is 200L. The fatpack contains 8 hats. 8! You do the math on those freshly manicured hands of yours and get back to me on whether or not you bought the fatpack. 🙂

One more thing before we get on to the next picture (which I know is what you are really waiting for). This jacket by Valentina E. is lovely, yes, obviously but also sold separately is a dress which is just as lovely. Take a look. They’re both sold at FaMESHed (hurry before the next round sneaks up on you); they look great together.

Onward!

Triple Play: FANATIK leather mini

Do not be appalled at my fashion judgement! Do not judge me! But…this jacket is not mesh, it is three prim pieces. I know what you’re thinking. I can see it in your eyes and tense lines around your lips but I have three excuses: it matches perfectly, it is cute, aaaaand it was only 100L.  XD

Style Notes: These shoes by JD are amazing. I know, I’ve blogged them before, but just in case you didn’t catch that post (I know you sit and wait at home refreshing my page for hours hoping for a new post but that is beside the point), these shoes come in a few fat packs and each fatpack comes with a HUD so you can change the color details on them. Also, you can remove the flower detail if you so desire. Oh, poor indecisive me.

Et nombre trois:

Finally, a cardigan. The staple of every wardrobe. In real life I love a cardigan–it is like comfort with buttons (so you don’t look too sloppy).  So, there is no reason not to love these cardigans from TokiD considering how well they’re made. Don’t look at me like that. I know they’ve been around for ages. Can’t I gush over something that I like even if it is old? Sheesh.

Actually, nothing in this outfit is particularly new (except the shoes which come from the new round of Zodiac). It is just a new spin on some old things in my closet. I like the idea of taking a leather mini skirt and tube top (items usually reserved for the club life) and making them casual and sweet.

LotD 82: Blinded and Barefoot

LotD 82: Blinded and Barefoot

Perhaps, the most useless of all accessories in SL is a blindfold (on par with glasses) but I still love this hair from Magika. Maybe we can consider the look to be metaphorical or at the very least quirky. Along with the new hair is one of the new party dresses from ColdLogic, of which they just released a whole new line in rich jewel tones.

LotD 33: Of Tea Time Revolutions

Not long ago, I was asked to dress as something that represented my country (the US). I didn’t want to dress in the colors or the flag or even swathed at the Statue of Liberty. I don’t think these things represent the U.S. well at all. They are such ambiguous representations. Instead, I dressed in rather casual clothes and sat my avatar down on the ground. She was a college student at a sit-in. My argument was that to dissent was American from the very beginning, from the Boston tea party to Vietnam protests, it is dissent and disagreement that is essential to the American ideal. So, here is another hippie, off to start another revolution, even if it is just an intellectual one.

Color Challenge 24: Raspberry Glace

Raspberry Glace is a bit of an obscure color but the challenge came together rather easily once I found this skirt by C’est la vie in my inventory. Perhaps, I was a bit inspired by a re-watching of Juno this week. 🙂

Enjoy!
