Red Hot Kitty!

Red Kitty

I had a mooch around SANARAE earlier, and shock horror, I *really* enjoyed it! I’ve found it a little too eccentric for my tastes in previous rounds, but this time, shock horror, I actually bought a few scrumptious things!  I got my summer on and splashed out on this bikini from INDENTED.  It’s called ‘Rayne’ and rocks a bang on-trend frill that covers the funbags area, along with the piping crossing the body that connects the brief. It looks great on, although as per usual my brain can’t disconnect properly so starting thinking about tan lines, and how you’d have a real problem if you wanted a wee. This is not an outfit to get drunk in, trust me! Also at the event, I spied a collar that said ‘Kitty’ on it, so how could I resist? It’s from SUPERNATURAL and is really well detailed, there’s even a clasp and chain at the back.  I’m still sporting my ever fantastic CODEX gloves from the KINKY event, but I’ve taken off the claws element (using the HUD included) so I can bare my red nails. Last but not least I nabbed this pose from SHINY SHABBY.  There wasn’t too much that caught my eye this month, but I confess I was enamoured by the ‘Feline’ poses by XXY and purchased those, one of which I’m using in the snap above.  I have to say though that I’ve not used poseballs in years, and was surprised when I opened the package that’s what it contained.  Still, no matter, I think the end result was totally worth it. Incidentally, the INDENTED bikini really sparked my interest, so I popped along to the store and I’ll definitely be paying it a second visit.  (This is what events are good for folks, they DO get traffic to your main store!)aaaaaSnapshot_002**SaNaRae runs until 18th July**

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…

All’s Vintage & Fair!

Vintage is a look that I do pretty well.  In fact, some of my most popular posts have been features where I’ve been decked out in retro 1950’s or 1960’s styles.  Truth be told it’s a look I like very much so I’m always happy to wear it, and fortunately, you can find lots of places that sell the right clothing to make these decades come to life at THE VINTAGE FAIR 2017

I’d say that about 85% of the participants nail exactly what vintage looks like at this event. You always get participants at events that just don’t seem to get it, but they seem few and far between at this one, which I welcome. I’m so sick of events that have themes that people don’t stick to! Of course, vintage applies to a lot more than just mid-century fashions, and look around and you’ll be delighted to discover clothing from every period of the 20th century, and a little earlier than that in some cases, too!All's Vintage And Fair!

I  needed to get my groove on, so to that end, I splashed out on a beautiful new period hairstyle from ELIKATIRA, along with a new frock (of course in a leopard print) and some spectacular new ZOOM shades.  I love my beehives and rockabilly style updos.  This ‘Mabel’ hairstyle is a great take on the classic; not too high that it towers and sits uncomfortably on the head, but nice and structured with loose waves that curl over the shoulders.

The dress is a bit special too, it’s from PURPLE MOON CREATIONS and features a sewn on high-waist with button detail, leading into an open shirt with a collar at the top. I love it; the HUD features seven different styles of dress including the leopard print that you see here, along with spots and cherry print too.  It’s incredibly wearable and fit well on my Maitreya body, although I did have to alpha mask a few areas.

Last but not least, add some ZOOM shades ( and Y’all know how much I love ZOOM, right?) and there you have it, an absolutely exquisite, vintage look that is incredibly wearable in-world.  VINTAGE FAIR runs from June 9th – June 25th, don’t miss it!
