OH HAI! So, I’m pleased to announce that my wonderful PC is here; I’m back in Second Life and I’m playing Kitty catch-up with mucho gusto. Guys, the PC is so much better than I could have ever dreamed about, I’ve been thoroughly spoiled and I can run SL in Ultra without it even breaking a sweat. Thank you so much to my beloved, Jez, for spending a small fortune upon me. I promise I’m worth it! The difference it’s making to my picture taking is beyond belief too and here’s a funny thing; I’ve noticed that just by using the one-click ‘enhance’ function in Windows 10 photo settings my pictures are spruced up to such an extent that I’m not even needing to Picmonkey them (unless I want to, of course). Of course, it helps if your foundations are good to start with, and they are precisely that for this shot. I’m wearing ZOUL CREATIONS ‘Brianna’ skin, the ‘Cara’ dress from APHORISM and this exceptional beehive, ‘Fall Ball’ from VANITY HAIR. I’m really loving the recent up-do releases from VANITY HAIR and they each add an element of sophistication to your outfits. This style in particular, ‘Fall Ball’, is a bit of a bargain, and it’s currently available on the marketplace in the absolutely perfect ‘Must Haves’ pack for a measly L$50! (No, I’m not joking, look!)
The ‘Cara’ dress from APHORISM is a lovely, solid mesh outfit that also exudes class and under-stated glamour. The full sleeves with contrast cuffs and collar add a retro edge to an otherwise basic shift. Simple and super effective, when teamed with this hairstyle you really don’t need to accessorise that much to achieve maximum awesome from your look. Of course quality footwear is a must with an outfit of this kind, and I feel that despite the dress being simple it’s worthy of more than a pair of simple flats. Fortunately, N-CORE have come to the rescue with these astonishing ALEXANDRA boots. As boots go these are just stunning; well textured and with the kind of heel that means you can clean the cobwebs from the ceiling with your head! They cover plenty of bases: dress ‘em saucy and kinky or use them to just add an element of pizzaz to an otherwise relatively conservative outfit, which is just what I’ve done here. To finish is the ‘Brianna’ skin, yet another simply imperial release from SHANTIA SOULSTAR who has worked her backside off in 2015 producing some absolutely top-notch skins. Every single release has been a winner, with Shantia’s exemplary make-ups adding totally new dimensions to her skin range. I challenge you to find a better array of bespoke lipsticks and eyeshadows. Each release is a treat, ‘Brianna’ is no exception! I think you’ll agree that this is a cracking look to return with, and get ready for some serious LOTD posts as I get back into the swing of blogging. It’s October which means there is lots to get excited about on the grid; Second Life really does seem to come alive at this time of year! HUZZAH!
