Sundays, a day of rest and relaxation. Well, for some of us, like my cat Mylo in the background it’s definitely a day to be chill. Me? I’ve put on some relaxing tunes and I’m throwing down some yoga moves in style!
MESH BODY ADDICTS is back and personally I think it’s the best round yet, with some fabulous fashion from formal to casualwear, which is what I’ve opted for here. These fantastic Sunday separates are from CYNFUL, which is one of those brands that seems to have been around forever in Second Life, but still manages to grow from strength to strength. That’s because the quality of the items they sell never ceases to amaze. I mean,
The items I’m wearing here are the pretty simple (and perfectly titled) ‘Lazy About’ top and sweatpants, yet they’re textured to perfection (check out the crease-shading on the top, oosh!) and you can even change the colour of the drawstrings and eyelets on the pants via HUD. I’ll get a LOT of wear out of these items; worn together they’re super casual yet the top would look great with denim (jeans or skirt, no matter) and the bottoms will look mighty fine with all kinds of tees and sloppy jumpers.
The pants are low-riders which means you can see my underwear which is from LUXURIA at ROMP. I have an affinity for all things Japanese, so seeing the Sakura blossom pattern on this lingerie meant I obviously had to have it, and like all LUXURIA pieces it fits like a dream and looks beautiful too. (It’s odd but I actually don’t like my avatar to not wear underwear; any other readers find themselves doing the same?)Last but not least let me give a shout-out to another awesome event that has just started, and that is HAIROLOGY. There are some utterly fantastic styles on show this round.
A couple really caught my eye too; both by PR!TTY Problem is, I tried the demos for both but neither fit my mesh head properly, and being a mesh-head noob I’m not sure how to rectify that (any ideas?). Don’t let that put you off trying them out though, I’ve started to really enjoy wearing longer hairstyles over the past 12 months and both of these are incredibly sweet.
As you can see I opted for short and sharp while I busted my asana on the yoga mat; this style is called ‘Natia’ by AMACCI and I really love the shape of the cut. It frames the face incredibly well, starting short on the right hand side, but with a feeling of being swept through before it reaches the left hand side where it’s left long and full and covers the eye. It’s super feminine and an absolute joy to wear.
Blimey, three events in one blog post! I have to say there is some cracking retail therapy to be had in-world at the moment, but you definitely shouldn’t give MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY, ROMP* or HAIROLOGY a miss!
