Shhh – SECRETS!

Well, SL seems to want to RUIN MY LIFE.  I just found this awesome pack of shirts from last months Collabor88 from The Secret Store shoved in my LANDMARKS folder!!!   It seems SL is out to get me, I haven’t been getting offlines, I have been getting them then not getting the actual IMS in SL, eating stuff is normal and now this!!! WHATEVER NEXT, anyway I made a little LoTD with them, and they are availale with more options in store now :D

Secret Store - Pleated Shirt Look¬
They are such gorgeous shirts, and all these colours were available for the C88 pallete, but now out in more prints and vibrant colours!   They both come in all standard sizes, then with tucked and untucked versions, such wonderful detailing from the pleats to the buttons, and the cute little bow at the neck.  I do love me some Secret Store!

I paired them with a lovely pencil skirt from Baiastice, and another new hair from Exile, my skin is still Curio that I blogged just yesterday, the shoes are my gorgeous glittery heels from SLink to fit the high foot. YES PLZ! – PLEASE NOTE, I am wearing the black, the gold and silver are available for the 21ShoeEvent for TODAY ONLY!

Have a good friday <3

Vintage Innocence

Rack Poses opened the  doors to it’s new ENTIRE sim very recently and there are tons of goodies both PG and Adult to get, I still need me a man prop but I managed to mix and match two dollarbies to bring you a bit of vintage innocence today.

LoTD - Vintage Innocence

I used the Riding Crop pose with the I’m Waiting Handcuffs and I think it came out pretty darned good!   Two wonderful poses that are dollabires along with a bunch of others and of course some rad non dollarbies too!   I’m wearing the Lulu Vintage Dress from the Secret Store, it comes in a bunch of colours and patterns, all shown below for your viewing pleasure, but I just love how innocent I look in this, then I dangle handcuffs around and it’s a PARTAYYY!  I’m wearing one of the recently blogged new Exile hairs and more about the rest of the look below.

LoTD - Vintage Innocence - Up Close and Personal

My skin is the new Nina skin from Belleza, more about that even further below, and I am wearing some gorgeous Cat Eye nails from The Wicked Peach, a handful of new goodies out from there this week including glitters and animal print, rawr!   The shoes I am wearing are the Emily Wedge Sandals from LaRoo, another great pair of shoes from their Fall release!   I love the intricacy of these with their woven fronts and wedge heels, absolutely loving the skin matching system too, I do love not having to do it by hand anymore!

Nina @ Belleza - SOON!

Nina is the new fresh face from Belleza, released in a couple of days I believe so a bit of a sneaky peek!  She comes in all the usual tones from pale to mocha, shown here in pale!  It comes with a bunch of brow options including a no brow, and you get cleavage and freckle tattoos too!   As usual if you buy the fatpack you get bonus lipsticks on tattoo layers, they aren’t shown here tho, I just went BOOM WHAM BANG and tried them all on and fell in love with each one!    The differences are subtle on some of the skins, a bit of a cat eye flick here, a red lip there, but each skin is so beautiful!   Very striking me thinks.  Keep an eye out for Nina’s release!

Lulu @ Secret Store

Finally as promised a little contact sheet of all the Lulu colours and patterns, a polka dot here, a stripey bum there… a gorgeous mix of stuffs from pale to brights! LOVE LOVE!

Happy Saturday, all!

I feel pretty, oh so pretty…

… and all thanks to Glam Affair, Truth, IKON and The Secret Store! YES, those are the stores I am looking at today, WOO HOO.

Glam Affair @ Summerfest '13

First off we have the most gorgeous skins from Glam Affair from Summerfest!  Aptly named Summer, this gorgeous girl comes in 2 different tones, America and Jamaica and I am showing the lighter of the two, America here!   There are 5 different makeups (different for each tone) and each makeup comes with the standard 4 eyebrow choices.   Such a beauty, I love how these are so plain but still striking! Aida does it again :)

Glam Affair @ Cosmetics Fair Summer Edition

Also available from Glam Affair are some makeups, these are from the Cosmetics Fair, I am only showing a handful of combinations here, but you can get the mesh eyeliner in 12 colours/combos, both glitter and regular, and the lipsticks and they come in twenty choices, for each of the Glam Affair Cleo (and some of her sisters) skins.   I really love the lips, like really really! I always love GA lips and often wish I could have them on other skins to mix and match and Frankenstein myself, well now (and with some previous releases) I can! HUZZAH!  I love the liners too, but I am so crappy with mesh facial/makeup addons that I never think I make them look as good as anybody else, but I gave it a shot :D

New @ The Secret Store

Finally we have the new Peplum style shirt from The Secret Store, with it’s Peter Pan style collar and gorgeous array of colours and patterns for you to choose from, this is definitely a wardrobe essential for the upcoming months.   The top comes with a belt that feature a colour change script (you have to click it, no HUD) allowing you to choose from 12 shades, and each shirt is available in 10 plain and 5 patterns, with two collar versions on each of the plain colours, so if you do the math (which I am not going to) you have a bunch of shirts, each with 12 different shades of belt, and that makes for a LOT of tops in one and all for just $L275! SWEEEET!

All the hairs are new from Truth, and are gorgeous as always, and the eyes are from IKON!

Blossoming

Another few bits and bobs for you here, including regular stuff, not just Skin Fair.. but definitely a little Skin Fair shoved in :P

Blossoming

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 :D

Belleza @ TLC

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.

New @ Secret Store, Ploom & Truth!

Eclectic Apparel is one of those stores that caters for all your needs, whether you want jeans, jumpers, a fancy dress, a warm cardigan, a plain old tee, a pretty skirt… it has them all.  Their latest VIP Group Gift is really pretty!  It’s a short little dress, perfect for christmas, in a polka dot style affair!   It comes in the loveliest shade of pinky red.  If you aren’t a member, you should be!  Also worn here is one of Truth’s new hairs I blogged previously, some Half-Deer horns and the YS & YS discount skin from the brand new spanking TDR Fusion!  The nails I am wearing are the new Mesh Diamond Edition nails from Pixel Mode, these bad boys change with the size of your hand, no more resizing or fitting!! YESSS.. more about them at a later date.

New @ Eclectic Apparel - VIP Group Gift

Another newish release from Eclectic Apparel is this lovely skirt.  The Polly Skirt is currently available a FaMESHed in an array of beautiful colours, it’s a pleated number with the cutest little tied belt!  It’s a very sweet little skirt, perfect for pairing with almost any top you can imagine!  I chose to pair mine with the gorgeous Secret Store item from Collabor88!  It’s so prettyyyyyyy, and you can’t see here but it comes with a beautiful damask style pattern too!  My skin is Glam Affair and is also from C88 and my hair is one of the many Alice  Project Advent Gifts in a special Christmas texture!!  Sooo pretty!

New @ Eclectic Apparel - 2

These are the colours of the Secret Store top that you can find at Collabor88!   They are gorgeous.

Secret Store @ Collabor88

Finally, a Christmas offering from Eclectic Apparel! CHRISTMAS SWEATERS!!!  HOW CUTE ARE THESE???   I can’t even describe how much I am going to stroll into this store and buy every last one of them as soon as I can!   The texturing is gorgeous, the pictures are crisp and clear and just.. unf, I love them.   I paired them with some new Floral Jeans from Reila and a Modish skin exclusive for the Winter Market (I forget the slurl, I will update asap), again the hair is an Alice Project Advent Gift in the special texture! WEEE!

New @ Eclectic Apparel

The Floral Jeans from Reila are just gorgeous!  So vibrant and pretty, different colours that will match almost anything you could want to wear.  These aren’t all the textures available, but I wanted to give you an idea of what you might want to buy!

New @ Reila

Just for good measure, this is a close up of the Modish skin I am wearing above, I did have a little play in PS to soften it up a bit, for practise so I thought i’d throw it out there!
