QUEEN OF THE CATS

PURRS

I was determined to tidy up my skybox this weekend.  By tidy I mean put away some random things with the goal of freeing up prims for the onset of THE ARCADE. TL;DR didn’t happen; instead I ended up playing around with make-up and lip appliers and dancing around with my virtual cats and basically doing anything but the tasks I’d set myself.  So at the end of it all the skybox still looks like a pigsty, there’s still a cat sat in the sink and stuff everywhere BUT I look fabulous.

And by fabulous I do mean absolutely yummy in an exciting and windsept and interesting manner. I’m still wearing my FIFTY LINDEN FRIDAY GLAM AFFAIR skin from a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve added some eyeshadow from it that I picked up at THE VINTAGE & COOL FAIR from LA BOHEME.  I wrote a few posts back about how impressed I was with this brand and that still stands..  I also rummaged around in my inventory for a lip applier that would set off the eyeshadow and found this little belter from a collection of pinks that I had in my inventory by ADORED BODYSHOP. Add some IKON eyes into the mix, along with my fave JUST MAGNETISED brows and you’re almost ready…

I say almost because hair is obviously the next logical step, and I thought I’d give my virtual roots a break after the dizzy heights of the VANITY HAIR updos that I’ve been sporting recently.  So I went simple and picked up this dandy ‘Torniquet’ hairstyle from MOON.  This was their FIFTY LINDEN FRIDAY offering this week and it just goes to show that you should never dismiss FLF for throwing up cracking items.  Some weeks it can be a little hit and miss, but never forget to check it out just in case you miss something that you’ll spend your weekend kicking yourself over.  (I speak from experience, I’ve done it many times so I now have a reminder in my phone to tell me to check out FLF, it helps!)

To finish I added a FOXES jumper (that was their contribution to August’s MIX event) and a skirt from JUST BECAUSE, a group gift that is rather smashing indeed!

And then I sat on the floor and played with my cats.  It’s a hard virtual life…

LOTD: Kitty Dares To Double Denim

double denim_002I have no shame.

For a  ‘Fashionista’ (spits tea all over keyboard) you’ll find me wandering the grid looking more like a ruddy virtual bag lady rather than the epitome of elegance and a show-piece for Second Life design.  For example, while writing this post I was trolling the grid dressed head to foot in demos. Demo top, demo skirt, demo hair. No ears. I looked like a ruddy chuff to be frank, and I didn’t care a  jot..because I was DEMOING ALL THE THINGS!!

And there are a LOT OF THINGS out there demanding demo time..
I tripped over to KUSTOM9 earlier and went mad for all the denim. I have a love/hate relationship with denim in real life, I can never get a decent pair of jeans to fit due to the fact that I have a pot belly the size of a small continent, but in Second Life of course you don’t get those issues.  In fact, I felt so empowered by denim trip that I found myself breaking the ultimate fashion rule. You should never, EVER do double-denim. And me being the rebellious type, I went all out for triple. At the time of writing I still have all my teeth and haven’t felt the need to cut my hair into a mullett..so I think I’m safe:)

I snatched the MOTIAMIE tied denim shirt and coupled it with the BUENO denim top. These are both extremely well shaped and textured; I found that the denim top fitted extremely well under this shirt. Occasionally I find I get issues with multiple alphas and mesh items just not working that well when layered but these are spot on.  Once I was sporting them I decided to visit the creator main stores to check out their other items. I couldn’t find one sadly for BUENO, but MOTIAME is right up my street. It seems to be a temp store in a skybox but is definitely worth a look, I spotted some excellent items, like the sporty dress and a gorgeous striped sweater as well as a fabulous array of Kimono. MOTIAME is definitely added to my watch-list!

I also scooped up this fabulous hairstyle by MOON, a brand along with SPELLBOUND that I’ve really been digging this year. Of course, I had to have it because it’s a bob, and you all know how much I adore my bobs,  but I really liked the shape, with the loose tendrils to one side and the ear-tuck. Oh, and it’s also called ‘Mourning Sickness’, which I thought was a fantastic name.

double denim_001Last but not least, an honourable mention to these awesome ears from THE MENS DEPT, courtesy of CASA CHEERNO. They’re super easy to wear and the re-size and the colour match hud was practically spot-on when it came to matching the ears to my stunning skin, ‘SKYE’ by NAR MATTARU ( in tone 3).   It’s just absolutely delicious, especially when worn with the stunning ‘Gentle Breeze’ ombre lipstick. I’ve loved so many skin releases this year but the NAR MATTARU brand has been a real find for me personally and is always an absolute treat to wear.

To finish my look I added the latest necklace release from Yummy because it’s absolutely wonderful and appeals to my witchy sensibilities. It’s the most sublime collection of crystal pendants including a divining pendulum and they’re set on silver chains. The texture on the crystals is absolutely spot-on, but you’d never expect anything less from Polyester Partridge.

Last but not least, I added a septum ring and some favourite eyeliner from MONS to complete my look leaving me ready for the weekend in triple-denim style. What do you think?
