Under Your Love Spell

Hair by Truth, Lingerie by Muse from Moon Elixir.

Something I could REALLY get into in Second Life, and I think I’ve confessed as much on these pages before, is virtual lingerie. I sure do like me some fancy knickers and bras, and if you throw in a corset and some stockings you’ll definitely have me doing a virtual happy dance.
I like my fancy under-crackers in real life too BUT honestly, quality bras and knickers literally cost a small fortune, so there’s nothing fancy in my real life closet. But in my virtual closet? There are items in there that Bordelle and Agent Provocateur would fight over. To be perfectly honest quality mesh lingerie isn’t especially cheap in-world either, but at least I get to wear it in one of my lives, right? The latest round of KINKY has hit the grid and it’s one of those events that I visit but the majority of items on display don’t really appeal or have any relevance. I’m not a virtual lover so the equipment that I tend to see sold at such events holds little interest for me. Granted I may giggle and look aghast (“YOU STICK THAT WHERE?!”) but I won’t be walking out with a suitcase full of equipment, although I’m happy to report that when I visited there was plenty of patrons in attendance and more than a few were clearly interested in this month’s offerings. I visit purely for the lingerie, and this month I’ve been made more than happy by the inclusion of a simply scrumptious set from MUSE, a lingerie label from MOON ELIXIR. For a start it’s called ‘Love Spell’ so I kinda had to have it due to the name alone, but there’s so much more to this outfit than mere romantic alchemy. Think ribbons, lace and a sublime boned corset with a bra that doesn’t as much allow your nipples to peek over but yell “I’m over here and require your attention NOW!” This outfit is just one of those items that you put on in your virtual bedroom and admire yourself in. Well, that’s what I’ve been doing for the best part of the last hour and I’m not even close to being tired yet. It’s just absolutely bewitching and wonderfully sculpted with great attention to details such as the shape, seams and lace application. You can even purchase matching stockings and shoes to fully coordinate the look. If you have the Linden dollars to spare I highly recommend that you splurge and fat-pack EVERYTHING if you’re able. Alas, I had to be selective so opted for a lovely beige nude shade called ‘Tawny’ ( I totally did not buy it because it reminded me of owls. OK I might have done..) but even if you just invest in single pieces you’ll find that there are plenty of ways to make your look unique, with huds that allow you to change the colours of various elements such as the ribbons and the corset boning. I found that changing some items to a black trim, such as the boning in the corset, added an edgier feel to an otherwise classic look. You can also elect to hide the ribbons as well, should you so wish, but I chose to wear mine in their full on ribbon glory. I honestly adore it. I am completely entranced and it definitely has me under a spell (all puns intended with no shame!) I think if you’re looking for something super romantic for Valentine’s Day then you’d be daft not to at least demo these pieces. It is quite honestly just a lovely set of lingerie to own and wear, and if you’re so inclined I urge you to visit KINKY in-world to get your paws on it, and view the variety of other wares this month that may tickle your fancy!

MBA: My Tears Dry On Their Own

MBD Bi-Monthly - For the Blog 1Another day and another vintage inspired look courtesy of this month’s round of MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY.  Incidentally, it doesn’t have a vintage theme, it’s just how I’ve decided to style my snaps this time, but I do think it works, especially with my outfit choice for today. I’m wearing an absolute bobby-dazzler of a frock from HILLY HAALAN. There’s so much to love about this, from the button detail to the ruffles and the general shape of the dress.  It fits my Maitreya body very well but here’s the best bit: using the HUD you can change the ruffles, bodice and chest of the dress to create a style all of your own, which is PRECISELY what this Kitty did, see? MBA Monthly- To Be BloggedEven better than that? There are FIFTY options on the HUD for this dress and it costs just L$125. Which is crackers.  It’s so worth getting, and so much fun tweaking the outfit options on the HUD. I especially like the choice of patterns and it’s super fun to mix them with plain elements to make a unique dress.

To add the vintage feel but with a modern twist I added my beloved VANITY HAIR ‘Winehouse’ style (I think Amy would have liked this dress), I and added some big shades from GLAM AFFAIR, that I had totally forgotten I had but was delighted to rediscover them covered in dust and a bit of old chewing gum at the bottom of my inventory..

I’m still sporting my ALASKA METRO ‘Pride’ manicure and my CAROL G ‘Lovely Roses’ tattoo, but the sharper eyed amongst you may spy that I’m sporting a different skin. This is the ‘Alice’ skin from WOW SKINS that is available at this round of MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY  and it offers some lovely detailing to the face and body. (Yes, I know you can’t see properly owing to sunglasses, I will show her off a little later this week, OK?)

fave place_001This, dear Kittywitchin’ readers, is my bedroom.  It’s a place you should all be pretty familiar with by now, because it serves as the backdrop for a lot of my posts.  Why wouldn’t it? I spend a LOT of time chilling out with my many cats and trying out poses and new clothes.  I also spend a lot of time snuggling Jez here, and well, I’ll leave the rest to your imagination!  I genuinely love my bedroom, but since I introduced my BAZAR Glam Closets I love it just that little bit more. But of course despite all my newly found closet space, I still cannot find anything to wear..ever. However, fear no more! The latest round of MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY has landed and as a result, I am impossibly happy, because I get to wear awesome things like this dress and these shoes. HURRAH!gladiator_003Now, far be it for me to blow my own trumpet, but I look bloody outstanding don’t I? That is due to a number of things.  First of all, this AMAZING skin from AMARA BEAUTY (formerly ZOUL CREATIONS) that can be found at SKIN FAIR 2016. (You can read all about it in the previous post on this blog!) The skin is one that you just have to show off, and I can think of no better way to do that than by wearing this absolutely divine frock from JUST BECAUSE.  It’s called ‘Carrie’  and it’s a short and incredibly sexy wee number. I immediately fell for this because straight away you can see how well modelled the mesh is: there is creasing galore, and you would expect that because this is a silky dress, so that’s a win! But what I also like are the straps and the lacing detail at the back….gladiator_007See what I mean? Stunning isn’t it? What could make it better? Well, I can answer that actually-HUD DRIVEN HAPPINESS, THAT’S WHAT! Yus; the dress has texture change options via a HUD, and even better than that, KNICKERS! (No, I’m not being rude!) This frock is made super-special by the fact that it includes panties that are also colour change (and may also be removed, should you not require them for any reason…) I’m pretty stoked by this dress, but was struggling for footwear ideas. For some reason, I just didn’t fancy heels, nor a full-on boot. Luckily for me, ILLI stepped into the fray with their rather excellent ‘Hera’ Gladiator-style  sandals (alas, no Russell Crowe in sight!) These fit my Maitreya frame incredibly well. They’re a substantial build and when you zoom in there are spot on with their rivets and stictching and leather effect finish.  I always like it when I see elements that add authenticity to a clothing item; these have a zip at the back so win on the realism ticket for me! gladiator_002I really feel that the MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY is an event that’s going from strength to strength, and when coupled with all the shopping and information at the dedicated MESH BODY ADDICTS sim you really cannot be living in the dark-ages anymore.  There’s just too much quality shopping to enjoy, and I hope you can see that when I say quality I really mean it.   Do yourself a favour, click HERE and go get some seriously satisfying shopping done!
