Break On Through To The Other Side

Cosmopolitan‘ has always been a bit of a hit or miss event for me. Sometimes I’ll drop by and find some absolutely hideous things on sale, and other months I’ll visit and it’s packed to the brim with wonderful stuff. I’m happy to say this month is one of those better occasions where quality abounds, and I picked up some rather fabulous things which I’ll share with you in coming posts.

The highlight for me, however, has to be this romper suit by ADORSY. I genuinely absolutely detest romper suits in real life. I really do! To me, they just look wrong and worst of all, when you want a wee you end up sitting on the toilet butt naked because you have to take the whole thing off. Nope, I’m not fussed about that inconvenience. However, this being Second Life I can wear a romper without worrying if I’ll freeze to death as I sit on the porcelain throne.

This one is a bit of a corker too; ticking all the boxes style-wise. It features the statement cold shoulder look coupled with puffed sleeves AND defined, slim fitting cuffs. Sounds awful on paper, but looks great in reality. The draping at the front is effective and the contrast belt really adds an edge. It’s beguilingly simple yet manages to look sophisticated despite the fact that it’s a frigging romper suit…who’d have thought it?

I have no patience and the vendor took AGES so I ended up buying it twice. I probably should send a notecard to the creator, Raven Corith, about that but I’m a very lazy person and besides, I don’t begrudge him the extra Lindens when I’ve bought something that makes me so happy.

It’s also a great way to feature body art, which brings me to my second find at Cosmopolitan, a very simple but super pretty tattoo by AURICA. This ‘Rita’ tattoo is L$199 and impressively simple in design; a v-neck pattern that falls between the breasts at the front and is repeated on the back, with matching elements on the arms. Perfect for when you want body decoration, but nothing too elaborate. 

Last but not least I’m in dire need of some new poses. Fortunately, Cosmopolitan delivered here too. SEMOTION are there with the ‘Modeling Pose Set 56’ and it’s a great collection of ten bento compatible poses for L$420 (or you can purchase separately at L$50 per pose) A tad on the pricey side but worth it, in my opinion, some of these will make for great shots, in particular, the one I’m using in this picture, ‘SE Modeling-541’

I’m late to visit this round of Cosmopolitan, it closes in a couple of days, but it’s definitely worth your time this round. you can click HERE for a taxi, and don’t forget to tell ’em that Kitty sent ya!

It’s Christmas Around The World!

The Belle

..and what could be a better way of celebrating than with a posh gown or even better, one that makes you look like you’re the actual fairy on top of the Christmas Tree, but in a good way?

Yeah, sounds mad I know but bear with me, because this gown from the INSOMNIA STORE is actually rather special indeed. I’m talking baubles, snowflakes, ribbon and pine needles. Pine needles are a bit scratchy but hey, beauty is pain right? To top it all off there’s a beautiful bodice finished with a ribbon; honestly, it doesn’t get better than this. It’s a statement piece for sure, and perfect for a Yuletide Ball.

You’ll find this glorious gown and a myriad of other wonderful wearables and home decor items at the ‘Christmas Around The World Event‘ from December 8th-December 22nd.  I’ll be featuring many more items from the event with you on these pages, so stay tuned, but seriously, this is a gown that will take some beating, right?

Caught up in the Rapture..

You know, pauldrons need to be a fashion thing again, they really do. they add so much oomph to an otherwise simple outfit, and this dress from RAPTURE screams ‘Pauldrons!’ Well, OK, it doesn’t really, but the simple yet super-effective one shoulder styling of this fitmesh frock yearns for you to accessorize, accessorise, ACCESSORISE! So I did, I added the aforementioned pauldrons that I found on the marketplace after a quick search. I also added the latest style from TRUTH to hit the grid at UBER, along with these fantastic biker chic gloves by RE ( also from UBER– it’s a spectacular round this month!)

This dress would also look just as good with a scarf or a chunky collar and thigh-high boots too.  This look makes me think Hollywood’s version of Cleopatra, but with a 21st-century vibe.

 

 

Let’s Get Some Shoes

I can never say the word ‘shoes’ without this going through my head..anyway, it’s Shoetopia, and if you want to buy some sho..erm, footwear then this is the event to visit!

I had a very brief flit around and saw some pairs that caught my eye; not all of them for myself but I could see plenty of friends wearing.  In fact,  if I’m being honest there were only a few pairs that appealed to me especially, although there were some cracking male shoes this year that I’ll get Jez to tell you all about.  The shoe styles I did like though will be featuring in some of my future blog posts, starting with this pair, ‘Raquel’ by DEAD DOLLZ. These are a classic high heel design with a simple but very effective ruffle on the back; they’re fancy, but not OTT, and the gentle criss-cross toe bar and elegant ankle strap balance them perfectly.   Also included are hosiery socks to wear with the shoe via HUD, featuring 12 colours and on/off feature.  Incidentally at FAMESHED this month there is some coordinating hosiery to complete the look (which I’m wearing here in my picture) too. I’m also sporting some BAIASTICE lingerie in this shot too, the lovely ‘Guepiere’ set in lace black, also available at the latest round of FAMESHED. To finish my look I added my NERIDO ‘Chic’ Bolero jacket along with my AVAWAY ‘Gwen’ ribbon corset choker. (All basic kitty look details can be found HERE) Incidentally, the pose in this photo is NOT from the pop I’m sprawled across, it’s from the ‘Saucy’ shoe pose set by INFINITI which is also at SHOETOPIA.
