I Need To Be Alone Or I’m Gonna Lose My Shit

two_010

Now, I KNOW I’ve been wearing long hair recently bit if you’re a long time reader of ‘Kittywitchin’ then you’ll be well aware of my all-encompassing love of bob hairstyles. I have always loved bobs, there’s a special place in my heart for them and there always will be, so when my current favourite hairstylist STEALTHIC released their bob length, windswept and interesting hairstyle ‘Willow’ at COLLABOR88 I. Had. To. Have. It. So I did, and I ruddy adore it. It comes with a styling hud so you can sweep your hair behind your ears or let it fall gently against your face and frankly you had me at styling HUD. I live for shiz like this. STEALTHIC makes me VERY hair happy. I basically need to save up and purchase all of their damn hairstyles because of reasons..ugh!

Another brand that makes me smile is CANDYDOLL.  I might not buy all their releases but I know enough about the brand to know that they fit my MAITREYA bod pretty darn perfectly. I don’t fatpack very often because my Lindens are such precious things BUT when I do splurge it tends to be on fatpacks that offer plenty of variety in pattern and colour, and CANDYDOLL sure does that with their releases.  Alas, I wasn’t able to fatpack this C88 beauty this time around, the ‘Amena‘ dress, so I opted for a striking black and white leopard print and I think I chose wisely. I tell you what I particularly like about it-the styling around the hands. I like the way it partially covers my MAITREYA  ‘Lara’ hands; and of course, using the HUD for the body you can adjust to make sure your fingers are visible. You can’t wear rings as they’ll poke through but I like the way it looks enough to forgo finger wear so took the plunge. There are fifty, YES FIFTY, options available in the fatpack, I know right? Ugh, I could weep!

I’m wearing another C88 item, although you can barely see it; it’s this months contribution to C88 from NYLON OUTFITTERS. Yes, we all know about my Nylon Pinkney obsession, I’m a fan-girl and I care not who knows it. Nylon and her SL/RL sister Polyester Partridge are the cool girls that I want to be best friends with; I adore their work to the point of being tempted to sell myself virtually so that I could purchase all of their wonderful treasures. ( I jest, of course, although, get this, I was actually propositioned in SECOND LIFE yesterday! I KID YOU NOT I WAS! This bloke offered me L$2500 to go back to his place and I kinda almost wish I had..I could’ve fat-packed that CANDYDOLL dress for a start and bought ALL the NYLON OUTFITTERS undies and..I’ll shush now because I’m NOT that kind of girl!)  Anyway, I love Nylon’s underwear stylings, they’re a real fave of mine and because they’re appliers I can wear them under items and let them peep through. It’s a look that I think is super effective.

I added some old favourite jewellery pieces from KIBITZ  and my all-time favourite spectacles to enhance my look and there you have it; COLLABOR88 Kitty black and white happiness.

Mood: Easter Sunday, drinking Gin as I blog and enjoying the sunshine coming through the window onto my keyboard, helping me get my writing mood on. Still wearing Factor 50, a welders helmet and asbestos suit to avoid the sun mind you...

Inspiration: Collabor88, good round this month and I’ve enjoyed it, and the track listed below…

Listening to: ‘I Need To Be Alone’ by Girl In Red.

I always have, I always will..

There is magic all around you...As long as my arse looks south I will always, ALWAYS buy the releases that Nylon Pinkney (Nylon Outfitters) and her RL sister Polyester Partridge (Yummy) create because they never disappoint. For me, these two designers represent all that is fantastic about our virtual world. They craft such beautiful, quirky designs and they’re just so damn refreshing. The colours they use in their designs, their artistry and the way that they present their work is totally my thing.  They continually impress me.

This month at Collabor88 Nylon has released some glorious underwear. Now, for some reason in recent months ( and I know I’ve mentioned this before, but anyway) I’ve become obsessed with virtual underwear. Readers, there is so much good stuff out there, both mesh designs and body appliers,  that it’s basically booty heaven.  In real life, I’m all about simplicity when it comes to my undercrackers. I’m not the kind of lass who can afford to shop at Agent Provocateur, for example, BUT in Second Life I can live out my luxury lingerie dreams with no problems at all.

If you’re reading this: Nylon, you’re totally an enabler, just putting it out there, LOL! 

The gorgeous applier undergarments for Spring which you can grab at C88, come in plain or country lace. I say plain, but they’re anything but. Delicious details abound, suggesting frilly lace and delicate pattern. The sets are Maitreya and Omega compatible, and for some reason, I decided to go for yellow. Not a colour I normally go for, but it spoke to me, and I’m so happy I invested. I feel pretty, girly, fresh and feminine.

I dunno why but these made me feel very happy. I don’t really like the idea of wandering around the grid with no knickers on under my mesh garments, and generally, I mask my lady areas so if anyone tries to cam up my skirt they see nothing. It may sound daft, but comforts me when I see lovely undies such as these on sale across the grid.  Why not give these a whirl at C88? Here’s your taxi! 

(Incidentally, details of the skin, hair and cosmetics that I’m wearing can be found HERE)

 

Waiting For Your Guiding Light to bring Me Back

Day Two of ‘Kitty’s Week Of Lovely Things’ and I found this lovely bodysuit by TABOU at FROU FROU. It is just so darn pretty that, yet again, I find myself loving and longing for something in my real life, not just my second. It’s a very simple fitted bodysuit, with a keyhole styling at the front featuring a bow, and substantial lace panels to the top of the thing and rear of the suit.   I actually had a ton of fun styling this; it’s just as at home under a jacket as it is a kimono; add a pair of heels and I dare you to wear it to a club! The Eva bodysuit is created to fit Slink, Belleza and Maitreya, and costs L$210. You’ll find it in this gorgeous deep red colour along with four other essential shades: Black, white, a very vibrant pink and a beautiful blue-grey. I think it’s a must-have, what do you think? Snapshot_001

A Very Kitty Christmas!

Hi Kittyreaders! I know..I know, where’ve you been Kitty? Well, truth be told I’ve been immersed in RL, but now that the holidays are here I’m trying to spend more time in the world because quite frankly Christmas in Second Life is delicious. I have so much fun decorating my skybox with all the trimmings; I do it every year and believe me, taking teh tree down in your virtual abode is JUST as depressing as it is in a real one! But we’ve a few weeks yet before I have to do that, so I’m going to enjoy myself as much as possible, and that’s precisely what I did at COSMOPOLITAN today, where I discovered this lovely warm AGATA ‘Eileen’ dress, which is textured in a lovely tweed fabric with a contrast fur collar and bow. I also found this backdrop by PAPARAZZI which is perfect for Christmas photographs. Why don’t you take a trip to COSMOPOLITAN for more festive-flavoured treats!
