Break On Through To The Other Side

breaks_001 (1)

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?

C88: Rainforest Rainforest Rah Rah Rah!

holiday_007(Yes, it’s a shit post title, my imagination had left the building when I wrote it, OK?)

I really hadn’t anticipated loving this month’s C88 theme, ‘Rainforest’, quite as much as I have. I’ve bought a significant amount of stuff, yikes, but that’s because everything on display at this round has been so hot.

Example: here’s me looking positively ruddy sizzling in a glorious bikini from TETRA.  This is the ‘Cryssie’ Bikini, and it features a crossover front with ribbon closure to the back and the neck.  It’s one of those items that is incredibly simple, yet when done right it’s an absolute sensation.  TETRA is a great brand, I hadn’t realised how much to my taste their clothes were and they’ll certainly be a brand I consider more in the future.

There are 12 options available but I went for a nice plain and simple flesh tone with the intention of dressing it up with the TEEFY ‘Winnie’ sweater, which is precisely what I’ve done and I confess, for the entirety of the week I’ve lived in this outfit. Dirty Kitty.

Last but not least, this hairstyle is a bit of a corker innit? This is ‘King’ from LITTLE BONES, one of three long and lovely styles at C88.  I really love their long hairstyles, especially because they come with a HUD allowing you to change the positioning of the hair.  It’s an absolute winner if you ask me.

Next month’s C88 theme is going to be ‘Tan Lines’, muted earthy tones rather than an all-out fall extravaganza. I’m looking forward to it immensely, but until September 6th you’ve got the glorious ‘Rainforest’ to enjoy, and I hope you do as much as I have.

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.
