Gingham Style!

AALOTD_001 (2)I always get the most compliments when I wear a vintage style, and as the blog has developed over the years I really do think I look my best when I combine elements of retro styling with more modern items. Here’s an example, this gorgeous shirt from ISON in classic Gingham works ridiculously well with these leather shorts and their sneaky skull detail.  The shorts and the collar that I’m sporting are both from this month’s BISHBOX.  I opened my box whilst live streaming yesterday, something I’ve finally gotten around to doing after a long time wanting to try it.  It was a lot of fun but requires practice and I need to build an audience, but it’s the kind of activity that will get me out of my Skybox!

Unfortunately, I came to the realisation as I opened my BISHBOX that it just wasn’t great.  Out of fifteen items, I will probably use just one regularly (The YUMMY collar that I’m sporting in this image) and except for some RAZOR jeans and these shorts, well, to be honest, I was disappointed. The quality of the designers in the box just isn’t consistent, in fact, the texture work on some of the items is incredibly poor.  I’m not a design snob, and I realise that the box is only 1500L, but I’ve found this month (and last months) editions incredibly disappointing.  At this point, I don’t know if I’ll be purchasing the next one, and if I do it will purely be because YUMMY is in it because I’m a hardcore YUMMY addict! Anyway, watch this space….

But onto the look.  I really hope you like it, I think it’s a corker.  The base skin is a new one from AMARA BEAUTY, which I’ll be blogging shortly…

MBA brings back the heat!

MBA Brings it back

It’s a SCORCHING round of MBA this month! An absolute banquet on a stick of fab fashions and first up is this glorious NARCISSE ‘Charlie’ bodysuit.  It’s plain and simple, just like me, but don’t be fooled; the fat-pack features colour options and ability to change individual elements, such as the contrast neck ribbon, which make a real, stylish difference.  I’ve teamed it with these epic SLACKGIRL ‘Sinal’ stiletto nails, that feature a bang on-trend chevron motif. They come with a HUD with enough colour options to see you through the summer!

To complete my look I’m wearing the TRUTH GROUP GIFT for May. This style, ‘Kare’,  gives me a real 80’s feel; it’s a mid-length, shaggy bob and comes complete with multi-styling options so you can get the perfect look. Even better than that are the colour HUDs.  The new textures are astonishing! Truth is making some epic changes gang, and they’re for our benefit! (VIP Sale extended until 16th, click HERE!)

I spied some cracking Bento poses on the Marketplace, so I went to check them out in-world, and I really recommend that you do the same.  They’re from REVE OBSCURA You’ll find a good selection of male and female poses for L$50 a pop and the one I’m using here is called ‘Rawr!’  I look forward to seeing many more Bento poses here!

The rest of my look features the ‘Queen’ lip and eye palette from PINK FUEL for last month’s POWDER PACK. I was complimented on it today whilst I was busily building in a sandbox, and I’m not surprised, every single one of Mochi’s contributions thus far has been outstanding, and I can’t see what she has in store for us this month. I’m also *still* wearing my AMARA BEAUTY ‘Justine’ skin as my base. It’s just perfection and I’m wearing it in a much deeper tone than I normally would because, hey, you know, summer right? (Plus, it’s such a beautiful colour!) Last but not least are my KIBITZ Jelly Bracelets from last month’s BISHBOX.

Bishbox February 2017 Review

Hi gang! Here’s my review for this month’s BISHBOX.  I think the boxes that I’m having the most fun with are POWDER PACK SL and BISHBOX, so expect to see me reviewing these going forward.  I haven’t bought a LUXEBOX in ages, or a DECOCRATE (and they are bloody good boxes, to be sure) but I can’t afford to buy them all. But, I do enjoy opening a box, as the lady said to the gardener..so go forth and watch this video!
