Another few bits and bobs for you here, including regular stuff, not just Skin Fair.. but definitely a little Skin Fair shoved in
I have seen SO much love and praise for TLC and their “The Boutique” event, it’s a really lush event with some of the grids BEST designers and already promises to be an event that delivers, without fail, every round. Today I bring you a Cherry Blossom, TLC inspired LoTD! My gorgeous outfit is from Baiastice, and this set is just gorgeous. You wear the top/skirt separately, meaning you can mix and match colours which is an even BIGGER bonus in my eyes. The top has a gorgeous satin look to it, whilst the skirt oozes femininity with it’s chiffon/lace look and girly flowery detail. I paired it with the Gos Boutique Espadrilles which are just GORGEOUS, they come with a beautiful cherry blossom material or you can go for the colour collection, I was quite partial to these babies though. Also worn is a lovely and delicate headband from Noodles, it comes with bracelets and stuff too, but this just topped off my look perfectly, it fits really well on the Wasabi Pills hair (which isn’t TLC but IS gorgeous) and my Belleza skin. Yep, Belleza got in on this event and look at just one of the gorgeous skins you can get! UNF! My eyes are from IKON and also available as previously blogged and my pose is from Adorkable! OH! My mesh ears are Mandala
Also released for FaMESHED from the Secret Store were these pencil skirts, they come in oodles of patterns, I seem to have opted for polka dots almost exclusively! I didn’t even realise. But they all match the 3D Rose Sweater, also from Secret Store and make it look like they meant to be together. The roses on the shirt actually come out, hence the 3D, it’s quite the spectacle! The Secret Store make wonderful items, terribly girly at times and that’s just ok with me, because I look STUNNING in these, I can’t even pretend to be modest! The skins I am donning in the picture are the Ploom Skin Fair 2013 Skins! You may need to click through to flickr, then view large to just see how lovely they are. Available in various tones with only 5 shown below, there are 5 makeups to choose from and they are gorgeous.

How ridiculous, Green isn’t a number at ALL, but it is one of my favourite colours, so you get a mini LoTD today!
Acid Lily Gallery is open with a new round, this Leri Miles Designs dress can be found there in an array of colours! Everything is discounted and some of it is really fun stuff! I really looooved the Green version of this dress, so here I am, prancing about in it for your viewing pleasure. There are lots of items to choose from ranging from piercings to mesh clothing, poses to handbags and even shoes (well boots), so make sure you check it out. I couldn’t resist the new Gos shoes, a gorgeous gladiator style (well at least in my mind) with a stiletto heel, these are perfect for making you as tall as your man, and kissing them silly! I also couldn’t resist the new Magika hair, all new textures and even more value for money, who could say no to that???
The skin I am wearing is the new skin from MONS for the Skin Fair 2013 that opens in just a mere few days! This is the Cat skin shown here in just one tone, but available in three! It comes with four makeups each on 2 versions of the skin, and with four different choices of brow colour. Such a smooth looking skin with plump glossy lips and detailed eye makeup. I’m not too sold on the heavy eye makeup, but I am really loving the natural kind of skin, on the top right! MONS skins always make me feel unique and a little different from my usual self, I don’t what it is about them, they just change my face a little bit. But cute nonetheless, right?! RIGHT!

Yep, I finally went on over to Gos Boutique and I got SHOES.. and feet.
These are all raw shots from SL, just all bundled together, to show you how truely beautiful they look just as they come! To my UTTER ashtonishment, I fell totally in love with every pair of the shoes (although I didn’t save one for the close ups, but its in the main pic!! I LOGGED OUT, SORRY!) and I was blown away by that because I don’t normally *do* shoes. I’m not your typical SQUEEE OMGGG SHOES type of girl, never have been in RL or SL, but I had to get one pair of each and then I had to tear myself away and TP away before I relented and got Fatpacks, sadly that is not within my budget but oh my god, I wish it were, and its RARE that I say that about anything these days, let alone shoes!
There were four pairs of shoes released, and two pairs of feet. I didn’t buy the arched feet… yet… but like I said I did buy one of each pair of shoe. The detailing on them is amazeballs and the best thing of all is that they come with a Skin Matching HUD with already over 200 presets and counting in it! I don’t mind matching skin but it’s SO much easier if you can just skim a database instead of having to tweak and get it just right. To my utter delight the tone and skin I was wearing actually matched the tone the shoe came in, but I still played around and I was really impressed. A lot of things have skin matching HUDS, but this was really neat, really simple, clean and well done.
The feet are also great, very lifelike and the toes are fantastic, I have a thing about the toes on mesh feet, they gotta be good or they gotta go home! I have nothing but good things to say about EVERYTHING! The cute lil pouffe in the top picture is also for sale, a collab between Gos and OOO Studios and it comes in tons of colours with over 3 pages of poses! YAY!
I can see a lot of trips back to GOS in my future, but I might have to find me a sugar daddy first, the prices are NOT unreasonable for the items… they come in at $L795 a pair, just under $5Lk for a fatpack and the feet were under $L600, all very reasonably priced but there were so many options that I wanted them ALL.. so I had to be sensible and say NO WILLIS, THEY AREN’T LIMITED EDITION.. GO BACK IN A FEW DAYS *unsureface*.
So, I don’t take fancypants pics (well I try but fail) but hopefully this simple looking post with show you just how awesome they look without all the bangs and whistles in a picture, but I know i’ll be using them in my practise pictures to try and better myself, for sure.

Well, if you don’t, sometimes you should!
Todays centrepiece of the LoTD is the new Haste Flared Tube Top! Shown here in the bird motif, it’s available in many ranging from like a sir, birdcage, crosses, trees and more! It’s a simple mesh tube top that flares out, hence the name, one suspects … it goes lovely with pants, shorts or even skirts and I decided i’d whip out my pins for this look and donned my Miel Cargo Skirt, an old FLF item! It’s so pretty and textured wonderfully. My shoes I picked up on Marketplace just yesterday when browsing and are from the lovely store COCO! I am going to head on over there in world shortly and see what else I can nab! My hair is newish (well at least I only just discovered it) and is from Ploom, she makes such lovely styles that always makes me smile! So I thought i’d slap a big old smile on my face and cheese for the camera in my pose from Adorkable!
As special mention goes to Perception for making the lovely necklace I am wearing, it’s a gorgeous little water pitcher/vase that is available at the current round of Zodiac! I didn’t quite know when to wear it, so I figured now was a good a time as any <3
There you have it!

Today is a LoTD based around the new round of HCE’s Zodiac Event! It’s time for Aquarius.
HCEs Zodiac is open with a new round! Aquarius this time, so expect lots of goodies with a blueish hue, water related and all that good stuff! I’ve mish mashed a few pieces together for today’s LoTD! The hair you can see is from Alice Project, and it comes with a cute Aquarius Sign clip (it’s at the back!), it’s a lovely, casual style with a classy feel to it. The top is one of the SySy’s tops available, shown here in a Midnight Tone but available in a fair few, this is a cute little tube top with a bit of a flare, it went really well with the Decoy Aedre Skirt! This skirt is so CUTEEEE, the “unicorn” colour is even cuter, but I wanted it to match one of the tops and it didn’t so you got to see it in a classy Black. Finally the shoes, they are from HANDverk and I think we all know that HANDverk does some really unique items! These shoes come with a Coral/Shell heel (or at least… that’s what I think it is!!) and a vivid blue colouring to the shoe. The pose is part of a set released by Exposeur for Aquarius, and there is a really nice couples pose too.

Hallo and happy Saturday, ratfans!!!! I have been out in RL today at a kids party and I handled a TARANTULA! So.. I’m a bit giddy, that might show in my post (like I never normally eh?!)
Mutresse is a store I haven’t heard of before, that had it’s grand opening just a few days ago! I was approached to look at the items and they are lovely!!! There isn’t OODLES out atm, but I hope there will be more, and soon! The shoes, trousers and jacket are all from there and they are 100% original mesh according to the owner, Eeky. Not only do they come in a handful of gorgeous colours, each item has a plethora of options, for example the trousers come with 5 standard sizes and 4 versions for each size: for heels (longer legs) with bending ankles, for heels without bending ankles, for flats with bending ankles, for flats without bending ankles! I’m not entirely sure of the difference of no bendy and bendy ankle, but I LOVE CHOICES!! The Jacket also comes with choices, you get a choice of alpha layer… 0-30, 30-60 and an option for smaller breasts! Woot de woot!
The texturing on these bad boys is awesome, and the mesh work is great, demos are on the marketplace (which is on the store locations page) so make sure you check them out! Also worn is a new skin from Essences, Wednesday is out now for TDR Fusion and comes in three tones, a really lovely skin, very smooth and natural looking, along with a new Truth Hair. Lavinia is one of three new Truth styles out today, she is an over the shoulder braided style that is cute but sassy. The top I am wearing under the jacket is one of Izzie’s Basic Longsleeve Shirts that were out for FLF just yesterday and they come with appliers if you want them! WOOT!

Wow, I’ve made it nearly 2 weeks without failing or ragequitting! GO ME!
This is another LoTD! Day 11, some of it Collabor88 again. The top and skirt both come from Tee*fy and go perfectly in the same colour, or different colours for a bit of a mix and match! The top comes in both solid and sheer, this is the sheer version, so obviously you can’t wear with an alpha, so I just adjusted my tatas and voila! I love the soft look of them, so cute and sexy! The hair is from Tableau Vivant and is also from Collabor88 like the outfit, shown here in Azure Dip, it’s available in many colours and is unisex too, as it comes in 2 sizes, so men that like longer hair, go forth…. PURCHASE! The Necklace is from Maxi Gossamer and is also a Collabor88 item, available in both Gold and Silver, and Long and Short versions, this necklace is detailed and intricate, and isn’t the only item MG have out for your perusal!
The skin I am wearing is new from FAKE and is the MIEL skin. It’s shown here in Pale, which I think for some people would probably equate to Tan.. but that’s what demos are for… It’s a really nice skin that comes with a lot of options including no brows, coloured brows, freckles, no freckles and complete with cleavage tattoo layers! She is available with 5 makeup choices and an array of tones! A real beauty and one I will be featuring again in the near future, with more makeup options shown!
Also worn are the new and highly detailed mesh shoes and feet from LaRoo! The Sparta shoes come complete with mesh foot, so you can paint your toes and change your skin tone and your feet will match perfectly and no more ugly linden toes! I guess that must be a bummer for mesh shoe makers, nobody wants gorgeous mesh peep toes with ugly linden toes! So glad LaRoo hopped on the foot board (ha! hopped! feet.. no? ok). They are a gorgeous sandal with such amazing detailing. You need to zoom in close to see it all perfectly, there is a little ruched side detailing, metal studs and rings holding the shoe together and straps and omggg details to the max! They come with a HUD with all the colours shown below, and you get tons of nail options, including a few patterns! You can change the tone of your shoe to the preset ones (6 to choose from) and I found that my tan looked almost perfect without even fiddling! But there is also a colour grid for you to choose and play with too. GET THEM, THEY ROCK!

One of the people I admire most in the pose making world is Adorkable Peapod, she’s so nice and positive, always on hand for a hug or just to pep talk you and I don’t bother her nearly as much as I’d like to. She’s beyond generous and is one of the most lovely people I know, and that I’d like to get to know better.
Every year she does a whole 25 Days of Poses, where you get a free pose every day and if you miss them, they are sold for a discounted price afterwards, here are 20 of the 25 along with a few different looks. The first 5 I paired together with a gorgeous Group Gift from Happy Undead! A really gorgeous knit dress, together with some new Ruby slippers from AlaskaMetro. I had to wear the new Exile hair for My Attic cos it comes with Tiara pin and it’s my BIRTHDAY, therefore I am a princess, duh. The skin I am wearing is upcoming from Essences for TDR Fusion, so be ready for that!
The next poses I am again wearing Happy Undead! This is their Tube Dress in Candy Cane! Paired with the Red Combat Boots from Monso that you can find at Collabor88, this is a kick ass christmas look! I topped it off with new Red Mint hair with a bit of a windswept look and the gorgeous new skin from Adam N Eve, but more about that below.
The next 5 I have tried to show from a few angles, so that you can see the awsesome work that’s gone into the new Blueberry Cardigan. With a lil cute bow and hood at the back it’s the perfect cozy knitwear for your wardrobe. I wear a Shabby Cat dress underneath it that now comes with appliers for your e-boobs! Topping it off with one of the 12 days of Christmas hairs from Ploom and the most gorgeous skin from Essences upcoming for the Capricorn Zodiac! I can’t forget the boots, new from Ispachi and some of the best boots I’ve clapped eyes on.
For the final five I went for a bit of a bright look with a billionty things going on! My hair is another12 days hair from Ploom, this time a more quirky style! It’s paired with one of the three skins available from Al Vulo for the Holidays, all three of which you need. I’m wearing the Leather Skirt from Blueberry that was released along with the cardigan above and under that the Shabby Cat dress again, but in a pink this time! My top is from Phosphenes and is the new Ombre Dip sweater, shown here in a vibrant yellow but available in other colours too. To top it off I have some of the new Waist High Tights from Izzies on, available in both a natural and colours pack these babies are to die for! I couldn’t take my Ispachi boots off either, so you get them here in black. PRAISE BE TO THE HUD!
Finally here is a quick peek at the Meghan Skin from Adam & Eve I mentioned earlier! This is tone 2 and all of the makeups, aren’t they beautiful? Definitely a more “real” feel to this skin than most of the skins I wear. She comes with oodles of options, tattoos and layers for cleavage, freckles, dimples, eyebrows and more! I really love the makeups in this pack from the cat eye and ruby combo to the peachy lips and pink eyes. So gorgeous!

I have been teasing you for a couple of days with some fantastic goodies from the Together for Sway Event, well, it is now OPEN! Here is your TAXI!
I have another goodie or two from there for you now, as well as some wonderful new boots from LaRoo!
Dilly Dolls has this ADORABLE dress out, and it’s SUCH a steal at just $L400! I ummed and I ahh’d and I was like do I want it? DO I REALLY? Obviously the answer was yes, and I am so glad I did because it comes in a way that you can wear it a billion ways (ok maybe not that many). First off let’s take a look at the dress on a whole. It’s got a waspy style waist, so if that isn’t your thing you may not like it, but there is a demo, so you can always try it out! It comes with the dress on it’s own in standard sizes, then a shrug with built in boobs for you to wear with it! I did question if there was an alpha missing, as you can’t seem to wear the dress on it’s own, you must wear it with the shrug/boobs… but the lovely creator told me that she is working on that and anyone that buys this and wants that option will be updated with that option as soon as it’s available, as there will be a full release after the event! But either way, I think it looks lovely WITH the built in boobs. You get three options of boob size too, as you can see below. If you’re wondering where my hair is from it’s one of THREE exlusive colour packs out for Together for Sway from Alice Project, the streaked hair comes in blonde, black and white packs with a bunch of limited edition streak colours! Also worn is my Chloe head from LOGO and the new Arsene Boots from LaRoo.
The dress has a HUD where you can change the colour of it, and the skintone of the boobs and such like. These are the colours you get to choose from, see what I meant by a steal for just $L400?!
These are the built in tones for the boobs, I matched my LOGO skin quite easily, and there is also the old school colour picking way included too, so if you have a green skin, don’t fear, the boobs will be fine for you too, but yeah you can play around with the colour picker to match it EXACTLY how you want it! Make sure you get on over to Together for Sway and check out the awesomeness!!!
When LaRoo opened they not only had the wonderful studded biker style boots I blogged the other day, they had these gorgeous strappy buckled boots too! The Arsene Boots are just stunning, they come with an option to have ALL these colour mix and matches too. I have paired each strap colour available with each boot available. I think, if my maths is right, there are 276 ways you can wear these boots with the strap/boot colour combo, but maths is NOT my forte, so please don’t take that as gospel and yell at Cracked if I’m wrong! They are a STUNNING boot that I just fell in love with.
You also get four heel options! But I didn’t throw that into the equation, but if you want to talk numbers.. yeah no don’t talk to me, OODLES OF WAYS YOU CAN WEAR THEM!
