LOTD: What’s New Pixicat?

Kit_005

When it comes to brands one of my absolute favourites in-world is PIXICAT. I’ve said before on these pages and I stand by it 100% the tops that Areve makes are second to none. I don’t like everything designed by the brand (like some of the more ‘out-there’ outfits and role-play items for example) but when it comes to fashion basics I’m at the front of the queue on new release day.
PIXICAT’s latest dress release is something to behold too, released at KUSTOM9 in an array of colours perfect for every taste and something I would be incredibly inclined to buy in a fat-pack if you can afford to. Alas, I can’t, so treated myself to the red version and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.
What I love about this frock, apart from the length and the cut-out on the sleeves (which shows off my tattoo beautifully)  is the texture because it looks like a fine, jersey rib cotton.  I have items made of that fabric in real life and it’s lovely and comfortable to wear, so I can really imagine how this dress would feel.  I like that the belt perfectly cinches the waist too.  I’m not a huge fan of belted dresses but this one is absolute perfection. It’s beautifully rendered, and I really like the tucks and creases in the fabric that add a great touch of authenticity to the look.
This dress would look fabulous with an up-do, but I chose to wear it with my hair long and loose, courtesy of my previously blogged MURRAY ‘Giorgia’ hairstyle. I kept accessories simple with just a bag as my embellishment, but what a bag!   This outfit screams for a statement piece to really make it sing, and my choice is the fabulous ‘ Le Visage Purse’ by NYLON OUTFITTERS. By choosing the black and white design, I’m echoing the patent black of my belt.
Last but not least are my shoes; now of course I could have gone black for a totally formal look but I wanted a more casual twist, so to provide that I’ve added my super clunky PURE POISON ‘Boho’ heels.  These are a real favourite of mine and I can dress them up or down with ease. The detail on the leather is really quite something too; they look heavy and the rivets and buckle are very realistic, plus the tone of these sandals is similar to the colour of my hair, so it gives the entire outfit a well-balanced feel. I love it, and I think this is a great look to start the week off in style.

LOTD: Wanna buy some Lemonade?

Is July turning into events month or what? We’ve got the IDK event and THE EPIPHANY (a new Gacha-type event) both starting tomorrow and don’t even get me started on WIZARDING FAIR, WAYWARD CARNIVAL or PROJECT LIMITED, to name-check just a small selection of events in-world right now.  But fear not, dear readers, the list of events is endless and somewhat overwhelming, but I’ll only complain when I can’t get into them!

I just wanted to throw a very quick LOTD post at the blog because as regular visitors can tell, there are changes afoot.  First of all I’ve changed the page layout to a much more modern design. It also means I can feature more content on the front page so I think it more accurately reflects the amount of posts (and work *cough*) I put into Kittywitchin. I haven’t quite finished my blog tidy up just yet, but when I have you’ll be the first to know!

Anyway, on to my look for today something very plain and simple but effective nonetheless; no necklaces, rings or jewellery to speak of other than the lip rings in my PXL SWEET LIPS. (Which I adore so much, I really, really do. If you’re reading this Hart here’s a Kitty-customer request; please make some more with a bit of a smile will you? I love mine but I want to smile in my pictures more!)

Moving on from my visage and I’ve thrown on a tee-shirt from the unwashed pile in the deepest, darkest corner of my inventory that I had forgotten all about! I hadn’t unpacked it, I know right?! This is unheard of for me. I adore PIXICAT tops (Areve creates just the best tops, she really does) and my not having opened this particular one meant that when I purchased this something big must have been happening to prevent me opening the package. I mean something immense, seriously, like an asteroid hitting the planet, or a sink-hole swallowing me up.  Or, more likely is that I bought it and forgot but still, you get the point I’m sure!

I’ve teamed the top with an old favourite PSYCHO BYTS skirt, although it’s so teeny-tiny it would be the kind of thing that your Mum would call a belt and say you weren’t to leave the house in.  Enough jibber-jabber then, here’s my LOTD!

Front and centre is one of the HAIR FAIR 2015 new releases from LITTLE BONES. I’m wearing so much hair by this brand at the moment andas I keep saying it’s a real surprise to me because I really don’t go wild for the longer, multi-coloured styles, but this brand just has ‘something’ that gets me right in the virtual feels.  I don’t know what it is, but it works. Each style I’ve developed deep and meaningful feelings for from LITTLE BONES has been an absolute winner, and ‘Lemonade’ is no exception.

For a start, it’s called ‘Lemonade’, and for another, well, see for yourself…..

It’s a fizzy and sparkling (see what I did there?) over-the-shoulder ponytail but what sets it apart from the crowd are the little wisps and tendrils that frame the face.  There’s a little tiny bit of hair that falls from the parting onto the forehead and it absolutely slayed me; in fact, I probably bought the style because of that lock alone! But just look, isn’t it something? This is the dip-dyes hud and features some outstanding colour variations to enjoy. I’m somewhat in love with this hair, can you tell?

Last but not least, the tattoo that I’m wearing.  It’s called ‘Insidious’ and is by WHITE WIDOW, who I only found out about last week and have been sporting her  stunning ‘Tombstone’ tattoo from ANYBODY at every opportunity I can get (as has Jez, he’s currently wearing the male version).   Normally I wouldn’t have bought new ink so soon but I spotted this one at the WIZARDING FAIR and had to have it because of the owls in the design. It’s full of owls guys, ALL THE OWLS!

LOTD: LARKING IN LUXURIA

Image

I’m having one of those ‘I cannot be arsed’ days today in RL, and it’s sort of carrying on into my second. So I’ve decided today is a day for being lazy! But instead of wearing a onesie and slobbing on the sofa, I intend to lounge about like a lady. So to that end I’m wearing LUXURIA lingerie, enhanced by this rather fabulous necklace from LARK. I feel like I should be splashing around in a champagne glass, like Ms. Dita Von Teese,  but instead I’ll be sipping on multiple cups of tea and napping frequently. Such is life!

I’ve kept my fabulous JALWA ‘Coven’ skin on for the shoot, as blogged in my last post, and I’ve been racking my brains trying to think of who I look like in this. (I’ve got it! Madge in her ‘Confessions Of A Dancefloor’ phase-her last truly great album in my opinion) I’ve teamed it with my favourite style of the year, and more on that later, which is called ‘Plenty’ by MAGIKA.  Last but not least is this stunning lingerie, It’s called ‘Rosa’, and it really lives up to the LUXURIA brand name. It’s incredibly delicate and girly, but the under bust corset has a very strong, well defined shape and there is lacing to the rear to compliment. I think it is utterly divine; and perfect for days like today, when you have chores to do but intend to do them dressed to the nines, and then some! Look, if I have to vacuum today I am going to be utterly sensational when I do it, OK?

The necklace from LARK is the finishing touch. Again, Sienia Trevellion has crafted a corker, this time in this opulent bow-tie necklace. I can see this looking fabulous with a number of things, but for a real statement I’d say try teaming it with a tuxedo jacket;wearing *nothing* underneath it. (A kind of look that evokes Lauren Hutton and 80’s decadence.)

You can find this necklace in four colours; Silver, Gold, Black and Champagne, and it’s resize scripted too, available at the ACID LILY GALLERY EVENT.

LOTD: Kitty’s feeling FROCKY!

Snapshot_001

Back after my holiday break, and what a wonderful birthday I had. Once again thank you so much for the wishes. I thought I’d ease myself back in nicely and feature an Autumnal LOTD today.

Now, you all know me well enough by now to know that I do like a good frock. (I said frock you perverts!)And there are many, many good frocks out there to be had on the grid, including this extremely nifty wee number from DCNY.

Apparently there was a version of this Boho dress included in Fifty Linden Friday on the 13th, BUT alas I was away so missed my opportunity to grab a copy.  And I would have done, with much gusto too, because this is a very pretty dress indeed.

I like the shape which perfectly fulfils the boho brief without being too fussy, and it wears incredibly well with boots making it perfect Autumnal fayre.  But thevery  best thing about this dress? Well that will be the choice of patterns and colours that are available in-srore. There’s a version for every occasion.

So dress it up with a floppy hat and boots and long flowing locks, or add a razor sharp haircut, heels and statement jewellery.  Either way it works. Fits like a dream, and looks the part. What more could a girl about Second Life ask for?

What are you waiting for? Let’s get frocking!
