Ready To Wear…

Ready to wear_003What do you like to do on a Sunday?  I like to mooch about a bit, something that you can do incredibly well in Second Life. So mooching is exactly what I’ve been doing..mooching about in my apartment, bemoaning that I have *nothing* to wear (much to Jez’s disgust) which is clearly not true because I hit SHINY SHABBY with gusto yesterday and found some absolutely lovely stuff!First of all,  check out my underwear. Isn’t it pretty? It’s by the always-awesome DEAD DOLLZ and it’s called called ‘Gwen’ and is available in five colour options. Unusually for me (as I normally go straight for red) I opted for the plain white version.  It’s so darn pretty! This little lace combination looks butter wouldn’t melt but don’t be fooled; there are cutaway pieces for easy access to the, erm,  important bits.  I think it’s absolutely mind-blowing; it ticks all my boxes for being something absolutely beautiful to wear and textured to perfection, yet it has just enough of an edge to make it incredibly naughty too. The ribbon detail at the back over your bum  is just to die for. It’s so simple yet so effective and enticing and for most of the morning I’ve just been looking admiringly at myself in this and thinking, oh yes. YES. I’m sure when Jez has stopped being cross with me he’ll feel the same way..waiting_001..or perhaps not. He’s such a grump! Actually, he really should stop being cross with me because courtesy of Ria Bazar I’ve FINALLY got organised! Well, OK, there are still some clothes strewn across the floor but not many because LOOK! I finally have the built-in wardrobes that I’ve always longed for..HUZZAHHH!In all seriousness, I’ve long coveted a closet. My current residence of choice doesn’t allow for a big walk-in wardrobe, so BAZAR‘s latest release for the RFL HOME & GARDEN FAIR 2016 , the ‘Glam Closet’, is just what I need; being both modular and versatile. Each piece can be arranged how you see fit with male and female design options available. To reflect the fact that I live with Jez I opted to mix elements of both the male and female sets into my build, so there are my bags and shoes on display, along with his suits and ties. If you have more space to play with you can really go to town with this set; Ria has thoughtfully included corner pieces to allow for perfect fitting around your space and there are blank versions of the units so all those little pieces you collect from Gachas that would look perfect in this kind of setting can finally find a home! (If you look towards the far right of the pic above you’ll see a collection of some of my gacha make-up winnings..huzzah for organisation!)bazar_001
The pic above was taken at RFL so you can see a bit more of the available options. Some of the  hanging clothing items that you can see above have been recoloured to suit personal taste, and the actual build is available in a white or textured wood finish. I’ve opted for white because it fits perfectly into the overall ambiance of my apartment and I like the way that the colours of the bags and shoes pop against the white background. There are a couple of additional elements available too; a large ottoman that I’m lounging on in the snap above, featuring male, female and couple poses that really adds a luxurious polish to any dressing room. It’s colour change too; there’s a velvet beige (seen above) blue leather (uber masculine that one!) and a warm, brown leather (my personal preference, see pic #2). You can also decorate your space with a female jewellery box and a male watch collection that really make a statement as well.jewellery_001Last but not least a shout out to this glorious style from ENTWINED @ Shiny Shabby called ‘Alexis’.  I’ve opted for the light browns selection and I love the cut. Bobs make me a very happy kitty indeed and I think this one looks puurrffeeecccttt! Incidentally, it’s Shiny Shabby’s  birthday so there are absolutely TONS of freebies up for grabs as well as exemplary shopping. Of course, that makes it an absolute nightmare to get into, but I’ve managed a quick hit and I found these fantastic ‘Boyfriend Jeans’ from COCO which I teamed with a free bag by  N-UNO  and also a tribal necklace  from YASUM to complete a look that’s perfect for Sunday shopping. Which it seems I’ll be doing on my own because the boyfriend got fed up of waiting…jewellery_002

Anyway, TL;DR version, go to RFL and buy these amazing ‘Glam Closets’ for yourself, and then once you’ve done that try and get into Shiny Shabby to buy this lovely lingerie and hair and pick up all the presents (so that you can take up all the room in your new closets with them!)

 

Fantasy Friday: Tricks and treats at The Fantasy Collective

Let me be your fantasyIf you have a group slot free it is well worth your time to join THE FANTASY COLLECTIVE and swoop on down to see what wonderfulness  awaits you at this month’s round.  Not only will you discover some suitably scary items, you’ll also be able to indulge on some rather cracking freebies.  Each designer in attendance has placed a stonking great big pumpkin alongside their stand, and it’s filled with either a trick, or a treat.
The treats are exactly that readers too; I’m wearing some of them in this snap.  I look ruddy scrumptious don’t I? Well, first of all you’ll see some blood-smeared on my kitty-lips, that’s courtesy of some epic lip tattoos which are a freebie from IZZIES.  The blood trickling down my throat is a gift necklace called ‘Bleed’ from the always amazing CAE, and the hair is an absolutely brilliant freebie from DAMSELFLY.  Isn’t it just to die for? This style is absolutely gorgeous; I love the fact that it features some pretty plaits to one side (perfect to show off your elven ears) and a full-bodied crown and side-swept fringe to finish.  As freebies go this one is pretty monumental and you would be foolish to miss the event, and this gift too. I paired all my freebie finds with this beautiful ERRATIC ‘Mia’ dress from THE MESH BODY ADDICTS event.  It’s available in a myriad of pattern and plain combinations, but this image just called for me to wear the black version.  I get the feeling that this dress would be incredibly lightweight in real life, very silky and slinky too, but it wears beautifully on my MAITREYA body. Of course because it’s an ERRATIC dress you just know that it’s going to have the perfect amount of detail, even though it’s a relatively simple piece.  The creasing and the slight drape and gape to the fabric feels just right and of course it looks beautiful.  I adore it.
Lots for you to enjoy here readers, so here’s your shopping list!

Two reasons to LOVE Fab-Free #1

The ‘Fab-Free’ team are without a doubt some of the hardest working bloggers upon the grid. Renee and Co always supply freebie hunters with the most up to date information and offer an invaluable service to most residents upon the grid via their blog. I always take a look at Fabfree to see what stores I should be checking out, because chances are if a freebie appeals to me the rest of the store will too. Also, it’s useful for finding Menswear for Dad..because he’s too lazy to shop for himself (both in SL AND RL)

Anyway, here’s another reason to LOVE Fabfree..a list of Advent Calendars and Hunts! WOOT!!

(Reason #2 coming soon!)
