As Pure As The Driven Snow

..of which, we have plenty in the UK.  I swear I’m starting to get cabin fever! Anyhoo, following on from my last post raging about events is a look I cobbled together purely from shopping at two of them: FROU FROU and BLUSH. Now, you know my thoughts on FROU FROU so I won’t go over them again here.  BLUSH is a different beast, it follows a more conventional in-world format; there are no surprise layouts or quirks. When you first rez into the event you’re in a room which is pretty much filled with awesomeness. Seriously, this is where the majority of the quality is at, and I relished looking around at the lovely things that were on offer. I’m guessing this initial room cost a bit more to be included in than the second, which is a far more mixed bag; after you’ve exhausted all your shopping options in the main room and wander into the second you’ll still find great designers such as WASABI. EXILE, KIBITZ and ATOMIC to name check just a few, but if I’m being honest there are a few slightly ropey inclusions. But let me stress I’m NOT applying that to everything in the room, there are some excellent contributions to be found but it lacks the overall consistency of the first.  That said I certainly spent enough in both rooms, which contributed to my pulling this rather fabulous look together!Sweet Dreams

It’s all about layering and the purity of white, contrasted with a peekaboo bra and a cracking bolero jacket.  This is one of those occasions where I wish I had bought a ruddy fatpack rather than a few singles, but hey ho…  The jacket is really very pretty and detailed well; a textured base with fluted edging tape all the way around, and it’s tied with a bow.  Above that, I am wearing the glorious wee AVAWAY ‘Gwen’ corset collar with contrasting metal trim.  It comes with a very extensive hud enabling you to change the colour of the ribbons and the metal filigree frame.

My underwear is of course from FROU FROU, as I have simply adored that event. This peek a boo bra and panty set is from ABRASIVE. The ‘Lustful Lingerie’ set hugs the curves and really turns heads, which admittedly does tend to happen when your norks are out, even in Second Life. To complete the look I added some rather lovely AMD lace garters along with some favourite LUXURIA stockings. Last but not least, some vintage style glasses from MULLOY and the hairstyle that I really cannot get enough of at the moment, ‘Lady’ By TRUTH,  My poses are a cracking discovery that I made at BLUSH, they’re by POSEIDON and the set is called ‘Flirtation’ Who’da thunk it, huh?

Despite the obvious sauciness of this look I actually think it’s incredibly beautiful, hope you do too!

Terrible Tuesday: A Kittywitch A Day

honeybear_001Sometimes writing a blogpost is a doddle, other times it can be really hard. Occasionally I’ll put an outfit together that in my head works beautifully, but on the page..urgh. In truth it’s often the case that the really simple looks turn out to be the best, and that is definitely the case here. I love the way this look turned out: Yes, it’s another one featuring a Witchy theme but hey, it is the season after all!

My look takes its cue from the cracking jersey I’m sporting from MUKA at THE SEASONS STORY (an absolute must visit guys, I kid you not!)  and is further enhanced by this absolutely banging hat that I won in a Gacha machine at REMARKABLE OBLIVION. It’s well worth your time dropping by the store and throwing some Lindens at the machine to end up with a bonnet that looks radically different to your usual pointy black hat. Last but not least I decided to add a co-ordinating lipstick layer from ADORED, one of my absolute favourite cosmetic brands in-world.  You’ll find some cracking eye make-ups and lipstick layers there for other brands of mesh-mush, not just the PXL SWEET LIPS that I myself covet..which if you replace the ‘t’ with an ‘n’ turns into a VERY Witchy word indeed! HUZZAH!

The cutest little Kittywitch!

I’m the kind of girl who really does appreciate a quality group gift. Of course, you have to be in a quality group to begin with, and there are many of them in SECOND LIFE.
One example is MAGIKA hair, and this seasonal gift is nothing short of absolute Halloween perfection.  It’s called ‘Sorcery’ and includes a mesh hat + hair just for being in the group, and the style couldn’t be anymore enticing if it tried.  It has an almost coquettish quality to it, and is the perfect shade of Halloween green, although if you purchase the latest release, ‘Darkness Falls’ you’ll find that the colour packs are compatible with the gift.

I teamed it with a lovely shirt, jumper and jacket combo from APHORISM.  This is part of the ‘Autumn Jackets’ collection that is available from THE SEASONS STORY (beginning 10th October) and the textures on this are nothing short of perfect.  Zoom in and you’ll see chunky knit and stitching and a lovely, clunky belt that ties the combination together perfectly. The Jacket comes in 6 colours, Black, Charcoal, Grey, Pale Grey, Blue and Brown, and also included is a texture change pad with 6 colour options for the sweater. Even better than that, Maitreya Autohide is enabled too. HUZZAH!

My skirt is a jazzy wee number from R3VOLT called the ‘Heather’ skirt. I chose it because the HUD featured some grimy textures that were perfect for this look. They’re a label that I’m quite fond of actually and produce a great range of urban-styled pieces to mix and match together.  I’m also rather keen on these ‘Strap Leggings’ from ABRASIVE, which is another of one of those stores that once you find it you need to LM it for future reference.

I still feel the need to wear these exceptional NCORE ‘Alexandra’ boots at every opportunity but they’re so darn wearable and the HUD sock options alone make them a fantastic purchase for and edgy fashion look.

To finish I added my favourite eyeliner and a glorious lip stain from ADORED, a sweet Kitty septum ring from CX @ UBER and one of my favourite bracelets, ‘Eternal Life’ by YUMMY. Gearing up for Halloween in style aren’t we? WEEEEE!!!
