A work in progress…

August 16, 2014 at 2:08 pm (Learning) (, , , , )

So I have this outfit I wanted to put together mostly focused around these shoes I got from last weeks’ FI*Friday.

>FamelessChic< Ainsleigh Pumps -iridescentl-

>FamelessChic< Ainsleigh Pumps -iridescentl-

This was not my first attempt but I thought I would record my progress cause I love these shoes. I do have a complaint though. The shoes only came in one size and there was nothing but the two mesh box prims in the folder. Pretty bare bones packing it seemed but probably because the designer was pressed for time. If the size of the shoes were a problem I would have inquired more about it but they are fine. Taking a look briefly at her blog/Flickr there are some other items I might go looking for in her store when I get a chance.

So this is the ensemble I am starting with:

:: Miss Canning :: [ Chloe Knotted Shirt ] and :: Miss Canning :: [ Chrissy Pants ] XS

:: Miss Canning :: [Chloe Knotted Shirt] and [ Chrissy Pants ]

 I should note that the blouse was the White version but I tinted to match one of the colors in the shoe palette.

And as you can see I also experimented with lighting and shadows. This is my first ever pic with shadows! My RL bf showed me how. LOL My intention was to start some tutorials but I’m not good with reading instructions much. Some will say I’m not good with following them either…

 

Obviously I need accessories and some makeup but here are the stats so far:

  • Hair: Magika Rewind with the optional string
  • Feet: Slink AvEnhance Female Feet
  • Hands: Slink AvEnhance  Casual

Halloween spirit

October 21, 2012 at 9:17 pm (LOTD)

Was finally feeling the fall weather and decided it was time to put on some tights. I wanted to wear my new black Taffy Skirt from Molichino and came across some fun ones in my inventory from The Secret Store and that was all she wrote! I ended up feeling the full on Halloween spirit. I bought these shoes from Evoke especially. Need prim shoes if you’re going to wear tights usually. These are really well made.

Fabulous in Flora

May 3, 2012 at 8:47 pm (Design, Pics) (, , )

My friend Bonadea made this dress. I did not even ask for a free copy. As soon as I saw it, I had to get it. It comes with a mesh mini dress plus a flexi skirt for the formal gown look. You get two looks for 400L. I love the shade of purple the way the long skirt flows and that you really get two dresses in one!

I didn’t really style it so you could pay attention to the dress. I’m sure you can imagine lots of ways to complement the look.

The dress has the fabric texture of a nice, soft velvet or suede that falls snugly yet gracefully over your curves into a delicate narrow bell skirt that flows beautifully when you walk.





























In the close up you can see the hand-painted flourish of perfect pansies in shades of purple and pink to complement the deep rich shade of royal purple.



















The design is repeated on the back side which is a detail not all designers might think of. It’s a sexy, low lag mesh mini that will impress the rest of the room whether you are coming or going!

















So put on your favorite heels. There are many shades of purple for matching convenience. (I hate it when it doesn’t look right unless your shoes are the exact shade of the color of your dress) Mix and match your jewelry add a touch of makeup and sexy hairdo and you are ready to dance the night away with your favorite people.

Enjoy!

52 Weeks of Color – Week 2 – Coral

January 21, 2012 at 11:53 pm (52 Weeks of Color, Pics, Shopping) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

(catching up)

52 Weeks of Color Challenge

Week Two: Coral

January 8 – January 14

So perhaps I should explain lol. I wanted to do something unique not the stereotypical lingerie scene and not just on a plain background. So my attempt is to do a shot like what might be in an ad in Vogue or something – where they put the model in a very unusual environment. They would have a tagline something like TGIS Lingerie. Comfort and Style go with anything. I fooled around with Picnik Effects – which by the way are going to close in April of this year. Picnik is a Google product and I guess they are going to force people to use their Google+ system in order to use photo effects. :/

CREDITS

Lingerie = TGIS – Lace Coral

Boots = Miel – Far Boots – Solid

Hair/Hat = Argrace Visor Beanie “Relax wavy” (Amber)

Bangles = ICED Arm Bangles – Black

Necklace = Yabusaka – Alphabet Changer Pendant

Nails = Candy Nail #FP006 Clear Glitter French Fresh

Make Up = ?? – War Make Up, a.e. meth – Miss Vicious Eyeshadow, Mozz Lashes – 04, Glamorize – Just Liners 1 – Smolder, and Lelutka Photoshoot II Lashes

Skin = Lara Hurley – Odette – Dark with Dark Burner

Eyes = Poetic Colors – Ocean – Driftwood

Here’s a close up to see the fun I  had with make up. 

The necklace is fun. Mine says “ALL HIS”. That’s a “shout-out” to my partner. :p

Guilty Pleasure

January 18, 2012 at 11:26 am (Uncategorized, Virtual Worlds General) (, , )

My lates guilty pleasure is Tumblr. Mine is blacked out today because of the SOPA protest but please visit my musings when you have time any other day.

Most of these sites state that if they are a copyright infringement please inform them and they will remove the image. Seeing as I am not making any money on my blog I’m not sure if it would fall under fair use. But I should put that disclaimer.

Because I love wikipedia I’ll also link to their definition of the SOPA protest.
