UBER is upon us and it’s a very Springy edition; lots of dresses, shorts and skimpy outerwear, underwear and as a total contrast some spectacular furnishings and dwellings too. I have literally ONE PRIM left at home. It kills me; I rearrange my furniture as often as I take my pants out of my buttcrack (they creep in, a lot) but I’ve got it looking ‘just right’ at the moment (my house, not my buttcrack) so I can’t spare any primmage for the glorious ASTRALIA BBQ set, for a start. GAH!!!!However, I can spare the primmage for new hair. My long hair addiction continues and it has been more than satisfied by this release from TRUTH. It’s called ‘Surrender’ and it’s a beautiful, flowing, layered beauty. I messed up a bit actually because I did a naughty- I did the ‘buy before try’ and I should’ve done it the other way around so that I could play with more colours but nay mind, as they say around here, I have it and I feel gorgeous in it. So here is a picture of me being gorgeous in it, and I’m giving myself serious Kate Beckinsale vibes. If you love long hair then you need this in your life, obviously. I love the Styling Hud that’s included so I could wear my hair over my shoulders but I just wanted to wear my hair down, loose and free at the front for this snap. I’m still wearing my NYLON OUTFITTERS undies from COLLABOR88. They could do with a wash, to be honest…
Okay, I confess..after my last post, I went back to COLLABOR88 because seriously, how could I not? I got some more NYLON OUTFITTERS underwear (this time I went for the waspie set in Nude, I’m NOT stalking you Nylon, I promise!) and it works perfectly, PERFECTLY I TELL YOU, with this Kimono from the latest round of THE EPIPHANY.
I felt sad wandering around THE EPIPHANY if I’m honest because it reminded me of the glory days of THE ARCADE. The quality of content, bar a few exceptions, is outstanding, and I’m afraid that, in my personal opinion, we’ve seen a sharp decline in the quality of content at THE ARCADE, which has resulted in me barely even registering any excitement at the prospect of the last round, let alone wanting to try my hand at any of the machines. (For what it’s worth, I hope I’m proved wrong by the summer edition and it’s back to the event that we know, love and long for with bated breath. I’ll cross my fingers for that <3)
Anyway, this kimono is by DAYDREAM at THE EPIPHANY and it has a hud for the pattern and trims, and one of the trim options compliments my undercrackers perfectly. Oh, and check out my hair! LOOK AT IT!!! This is the perfect Sunday morning messy updo, isn’t it? I mean, I wish that when I threw my hair into an updo in real life it looked this good and I didn’t look like a hairy potato but hey, in at least one of my lives I’m a fucking Goddess, right? It’s the second one, obviously.
So this hair is by SINTIKLIA, it’s called ‘Willow’ and the reason I love it so is the loose tendrils that don’t so much as frame the face as get in the way and do your virtual head in, but no matter because it looks all windswept and interesting and coquettish like; you know like how Brigitte Bardot was before she got all racist and shiz? Yup, that.
Anyway, enjoy. Me, I’m trying to eat my Cheerios without spilling them all down my front because of a four day weekend and all that, betches. I’m so hungover it stinks, and trust me, virtual hangovers are the worst kind. I hate being pixel pissed…..
Now, I KNOW I’ve been wearing long hair recently bit if you’re a long time reader of ‘Kittywitchin’ then you’ll be well aware of my all-encompassing love of bob hairstyles. I have always loved bobs, there’s a special place in my heart for them and there always will be, so when my current favourite hairstylist STEALTHIC released their bob length, windswept and interesting hairstyle ‘Willow’ at COLLABOR88 I. Had. To. Have. It. So I did, and I ruddy adore it. It comes with a styling hud so you can sweep your hair behind your ears or let it fall gently against your face and frankly you had me at styling HUD. I live for shiz like this. STEALTHIC makes me VERY hair happy. I basically need to save up and purchase all of their damn hairstyles because of reasons..ugh!
Another brand that makes me smile is CANDYDOLL. I might not buy all their releases but I know enough about the brand to know that they fit my MAITREYA bod pretty darn perfectly. I don’t fatpack very often because my Lindens are such precious things BUT when I do splurge it tends to be on fatpacks that offer plenty of variety in pattern and colour, and CANDYDOLL sure does that with their releases. Alas, I wasn’t able to fatpack this C88 beauty this time around, the ‘Amena‘ dress, so I opted for a striking black and white leopard print and I think I chose wisely. I tell you what I particularly like about it-the styling around the hands. I like the way it partially covers my MAITREYA ‘Lara’ hands; and of course, using the HUD for the body you can adjust to make sure your fingers are visible. You can’t wear rings as they’ll poke through but I like the way it looks enough to forgo finger wear so took the plunge. There are fifty, YES FIFTY, options available in the fatpack, I know right? Ugh, I could weep!
I’m wearing another C88 item, although you can barely see it; it’s this months contribution to C88 from NYLON OUTFITTERS. Yes, we all know about my Nylon Pinkney obsession, I’m a fan-girl and I care not who knows it. Nylon and her SL/RL sister Polyester Partridge are the cool girls that I want to be best friends with; I adore their work to the point of being tempted to sell myself virtually so that I could purchase all of their wonderful treasures. ( I jest, of course, although, get this, I was actually propositioned in SECOND LIFE yesterday! I KID YOU NOT I WAS! This bloke offered me L$2500 to go back to his place and I kinda almost wish I had..I could’ve fat-packed that CANDYDOLL dress for a start and bought ALL the NYLON OUTFITTERS undies and..I’ll shush now because I’m NOT that kind of girl!) Anyway, I love Nylon’s underwear stylings, they’re a real fave of mine and because they’re appliers I can wear them under items and let them peep through. It’s a look that I think is super effective.
Mood: Easter Sunday, drinking Gin as I blog and enjoying the sunshine coming through the window onto my keyboard, helping me get my writing mood on. Still wearing Factor 50, a welders helmet and asbestos suit to avoid the sun mind you...
Inspiration: Collabor88, good round this month and I’ve enjoyed it, and the track listed below…
Listening to: ‘I Need To Be Alone’ by Girl In Red.
A ‘Kitty Quicky’ – I am absolutely LOVING this hair by DOUX available at EQUAL 10’s first anniversary round. I do love the aesthetic of that sim; it’s very 1980’s/retrowave and looks great. It’s relatively easy to shop around too, not as laggy as some events in my experience. This hairstyle is called ‘Angelica’ and it just called to me, called I tell you. “Buy me, Kitty,” it crooned. So I did, and I’m mighty pleased because it’s a heavenly confection of layers and waves. I’m really feeling the pink at the moment as well, as you can tell from this shot. I hate pink, I genuinely have no clue what’s coming over me? Perhaps it’s the April Pink Full Moon? Whatever, it looks great and I wore it to bed with my new favourite nightwear, available from MISS CHELSEA. It was their FIFTY LINDEN FRIDAY offering this week and if you rush I’m sure you’ll find it still on sale. Hope you’re having a great weekend!
