Auna

Hey everybody! Happy Friday!

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this style of pic that I did above.  I’m usually a one photo kind of girl, but I really wanted to show a few things in detail.  The hard work and skill that went into a few of the items I’m wearing today are quite apparent and it’s nice to show them off.

KOSH has released all sorts of new goodies.  I am wearing the new Auna set, and it’s just stunning.  Lynaja Bade can make anything shine with realism, great color hues, and fantastic attention to detail.  The jewelry is texture change.  You can change the leather strap to 15 different hues and textures, the metal to 5 different colors, and the gem to six different styles.  Talk about versatility!  I have a lot of appreciation for designers who take the time to make items like this.  You can match and wear this jewelry set with so many items, which makes it a great investment.

My dress is from MAAI.  The one shoulder Rey dress comes in eight different hues.  I am wearing it in cyan!  I think this dress is a great photo dress, as it really seems to shine in portraits.  Light seems to reflect beautifully off the pattern and textures in it, and the color choices are beautiful.

I finished off my entire outfit with the Baiastice santigold mesh pumps that will be available at this year’s Culture Shock!   The event opens today at 4pm slt, so make sure you stop by and check it out.  I love the little straps on these shoes!  The pose I am using is also featured at Culture Shock this year and you can find it at Adorkable Poses.

I hope you all have a great start to your weekend!

Country Hippy

I’ll be honest.  I don’t often wear pants that hang this low.  In fact, usually I see people in low pants and I want to scream “Pull them up!”, but these adorable and sexy mesh pants from Aura are too lovely to not throw on and prance around in.  They are so much fun!  They remind me of pants I would have worn in high school.  When I was in school it was popular to cut up your jeans and add strips of fabric to make them look more unique and have more flare at the bottom.  The belt is also the perfect touch for this.  These pants can be found at faMESHed right now in a handful of color and pattern options.

I paired these sexy jeans with another one of Tyr Rozenblum’s items that she has released for Stumblebum this round.  Boho tops!  These also come in a handful of colors, are mesh, and somehow manage to come across as ridiculously sexy and strangely innocent all at the same time.

My hair can be found tomorrow at the opening of Culture Shock.  It is called Shiori and it is MissAllSunday Lemon’s newest release at Wasabi Pills.  I love that it’s unique, mesh, and comes in the perfect red headed shade.  Her tones and textures are always so beautiful.  If you are a redhead or love to rock shades of red on occasion, this color is called Gingerbread, and it’s my absolute favorite.  Keep in mind that many items at Culture Shock this year are supporting Doctors Without Borders, so money you spend is certainly going for a great cause.

My necklace is from a store I have not featured on my blog before.  The store is called [HANDverk] and this necklace, and all the other items they are featuring at faMESHed this month are wonderful.  Definitely work taking a peek at. I look forward to more from this store now that it’s popped up on my shopping radar!

The end of the week is in sight!  Hope you’ve all had a great one.

Culture Shock

I have so much to tell you about today, and I am quite excited about it!  First lets talk about Culture Shock 2012.  This is the second Culture Shock event put on by the Chic Management team and sponsored by Modavia Productions.  The event is designed to help support and raise funds for Medicins Sans Frontieres, or better known as Doctors Without Borders.  You can find more information and details here.  I have been lucky to have a chance to see the sim, and I can tell you it is going to be an absolute fantastic event.  The sim looks awesome and the design is great, very similar in a lot of regards to last year’s Culture shock.  The event will open May 4th at 4pm SLT.

I’m wearing a few items above that will be featured in the event.  My jumpsuit and handbag are from Ricielli.  This store has quite a bit to offer at culture shock including some adorable shorts, v neck tops, a few styles of jumpsuits, and these great handbags to name a few.  The color choices are vast, and bright! Great for summer.

The necklace I paired with this ensemble is from undefined lilies!  It will also be featured at Culture Shock and come in eight different colors.  I know the necklace is a bit hard to see in this photo and my hair is covering it up quite a bit.  On the right side, hidden by my hair is a beautiful little dove.  The necklace will be donating proceeds to Doctors without Borders at the event!

I am certain in the coming weeks I will be featuring quite a few great items for Culture Shock.  I’ll do my best to make note of any item that comes from the event.  Make sure to stop by when it opens and help support the Doctors Without Borders organization.  oOo Studio is also releasing some amazing new poses at Culture Shock, and the pose i’m using above is one of those that will be available!

My skin is the brand new release from Glam Affair called Giselle.  This skin is stunning.  I didn’t think Glam Affair would be releasing a skin I liked more than Leah for a while, and I was certainly wrong.  Every new release Aida Ewing makes just continues to improve.  I think she and her team do an impeccable job of listening to their customers wants and desires.  This skin is smooth, full of life, and has beautiful detailing.  It comes with the options of dark, light, or red brows.  As a redhead I am always thrilled when skins release red brows!  I am certain this is a skin you will see a lot of in the coming weeks, as I do not want to take it off!

My hair is the newest Wasabi Pills release and you can find it at the faMESHed event which is officially open and off to a fantastic first round!  This store just continues to crank out new releases on a regular basis and they have all been unique, beautiful, and very stylish.  I know they will be releasing at least one new hairstyle for Culture Shock as well!

So many great events happening right now, that I know it probably feels a little bit hard to keep up!  Luckily many of them run for a handful of weeks! I hope you are able to stop by and shop to your heart’s content!

Lady

I am so excited and thrilled to announced that faMESHed is officially open to the public!  The rest of this week/month I will be featuring a handful of items from the awesome mesh inspired event.  The place looks absolutely fantastic.  If you haven’t had a chance to duck over and check out what all it has to offer in it’s very first month, now is your chance!  The event features a whole slew of great designers, and talented designs in a variety of shopping genres.  You’ll find not only men’s and women’s items but also home decor and accessories as well.

My beautiful business inspired dress that I’m wearing is from NYU, designed by the talented NyuNyu Kimono.  I love the high shoulders, and flattering shape of this dress.  The entire ensemble makes me feel like quite a lady.  Seeing as I run around barefoot in denim most of the time, it’s always fun to dress up occasionally.  I’m wearing the dress in nude, but you can find it in rose, emerald, china pink, and azure as well at the event.

I paired my dress with a very cute pair of flats by Jewell Munro of MooShooZ.  They are the buckle flats, in black.  Very cute basic shoe that is quite useful to have around to throw on with a variety of outfits and apparel.  The overall design of it’s really nicely made!  In my real life flats and flip flops are my two favorite shoes to wear, so I always enjoy when I find a great  new pair to add to my inventory in SL.

That’s all from me today! I hope everyone has a fantastic day!

Ecru

I had a lot of fun putting this outfit together.  I’ve been so swamped and busy with other work the last few days, that just having some down time to play dress up was quite enjoyable!  These adorable chinos are from Toki-Doki! I’ll be honest, the shape of these isn’t “me” and really doesn’t make my look like my normal bubble butt self, but they were so cute I just didn’t care!  The texturing work and rigging on them is lovely, and the little cuffs at the bottom are great.  So regardless of the change in my shape to wear them, it was entirely worth it.  They come in quite a handful of colors as well including some other neutrals, as well as fun summery colors!

These heels I believe have been out for a while now, but I swung by and picked myself up a pair.  They are from Celoe and I’m so glad I got them in the color I did.  I can match these with nearly anything.  The realism these mesh heels have is also pretty incredible.  They look so much like a real pair you’d find sitting in your closet.

I think those are the main things I wanted to point out in this post… keep in mind that Tya Fallingbridge’s sim, and her beloved T Town will be opening most likely sometime tonight!  I took this pic on the sim, and let me tell you…it’s absolutely awesome.  So much hard work went into making a great place for you all the explore and photograph, and I’m so excited to finally be able to provide you all with a SLurl soon!

Have a great Monday!
