Kitty’s Luxebox Review: March 2017

This month’s LUXEBOX  is really a bit of a corker.  Being on a limited budget,  I’ve had to be careful with the subscription box purchases that I make in-world ( the only one that I ABSOLUTELY must have is Powder Pack.  Oh, and Bishbox! Argh, see that’s two already!) so I haven’t purchased a Luxebox for a few months, but I’m so glad I have done this month! Why? Well, watch the videos to find out.

In Part One,  I talk about the releases from Ison, Azuchi, Foxes and Tres Blah. It’s professionally done, as all of my videos are.. ( No it isn’t, it’s an absolute farce but I care not a jot, I have so much fun doing these!) (I’ll add parts two and three once they’re uploaded!)

Here’s Part Two, where I try on Stories & Co, Teefy, Lamb and Moon’s contributions (they’re all rather fab!)

In Part Three I talk about the builds from Tarte and Scarlet Creative, and the lambs from Mish Mish that are squeeable!  I think it was a really great Luxebox this month, what did you think?

Viva La Glamistry!

I’m really rocking the vintage feel in this snap.  I wanted a less formal look than my beehive and frock which I posted previously, so opted for an old pair of denims, an on-trend tied-tee ( have you seen how many items you can get in world at the moment that are tied? Who would have thought a knot could make such a difference!) and an updo that really gave off the vintage vibe.  The bandana around this style makes it feel less formal than your standard headwear, but it’s the combination of these fantastic shades and heels from GLAMISTRY that really take this look outta time!

The sunglasses are classic styling- a thick rim with metal details to the tips of the frame and the sides. They’re easy to change via HUD, and rather than use them as sunglasses I opted to change the lenses to a totally transparent look so that I have the perfect everyday spectacles to match my outfit.  (Also it costs a mere L$247 for a pack of twelve essential colours!! BARGAIN!) Exposed_003My heels are really rather special; these are the GLAMISTRY ‘Ramonda’ pumps and the animal print I chose to wear really pushes them back  into the decade of  Rock ‘n’ Roll but with a thoroughly modern twist.  Guys, these are well-worth a close-up look.  For a start the texture is incredible, a brushed fur effect to the animal print is juxtaposed against a pin-sharp heel and a metal stripe to the rear of the show and the front.  Like all GLAMISTRY footwear you have great options here to change various elements of the shoe, so because the majority of my jewellery on this look is silver I opted for that choice in my footwear too.Exposed_002The look is decades fresh and incredibly wearable, and I got complimented upon it at SL13B, where I was due to contribute to the latest DRAX FILES RADIO HOUR broadcast.  Alas, as is my luck, I had a massive hardware failure as I took my seat upon the stage which meant I couldn’t contribute, and I sloped off with very wounded Kitty pride.  Still, even though I was silent I looked bloody hot, even if I say so myself!

Interested in this look? Here are the details and as always, happy shopping!

MBA: Weekend at Jez’s

weekend_001I don’t do well waking up in a strange bed, but Jez’s new place is a bit of a fancy home-from-home, so I woke up feeling pretty rested after lugging my massive suitcase full of outfits there for the weekend. It felt very odd though; no cats for a start (my skybox is festooned with them!) so I’ve spent most of the day trying to convince him that he needs one, or two.  Perhaps three. Anyway, today I wanted to keep it pretty and simple, so I hung around the pad listening to music and dancing around in my BLUEBERRY ‘Milly’ Leather Shorts.  These are short, stylish and oh so tight that they almost gave Jez a coronary! But despite being leather shorts you can actually dress them up really well; I combined mine with a kimono and some statement jewellery and looked pretty neat, even if I say so myself! weekend_003A soak in Jez’s BAZAR ‘Toronto’ tub allowed me to think about the important things in life, like can the neighbours see my mimsy because Jez’s curtains are the very definition of inadequate?  No matter, we’ve all seen virtual vajay-jay before, so out of the tub I hopped into my lovely DOLLE robe (still available at WHORE COUTURE FAIR 5) and made like I knew what I was going to wear tonight..weekend_004Which of course I didn’t. It’s fair to say I had NO IDEA what I would be wearing.  You know when you have a drawer with personal items stored in it at your boyfriend’s house? I have a whole rail of clobber and of course,  I’d brought a suitcase full yet I had no idea what to wear! GAH!weekend_005Fortunately, MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY saved me again! This beautifully embellished lace and pearl cocktail dress from UNITED COLOURS  makes a statement without needing any additional items such as bold earrings or necklaces. It fits my MAITREYA body perfectly with just a hint of a cinch at the waist.  A slick of lipstick from my AMARA BEAUTY ‘Kat’ Lipstick Palette (to match my CATWA head) and I’m good to go!

So the question is, where’s Jez?!

I have NO IDEA what to wear for Halloween…

Halloween_001

There’s *STILL* so much to do before Halloween, can you believe it’s finally here?! I’m frantically trying to decide on my outfit but failing miserably; there’s just too much choice this year! So, while I try to perfect my look I’m chilling out in my skybox home, experimenting with various make-ups and hairstyles.   One thing I absolutely adore about my virtual home is my LARK dresser that is covered in TRES BLAH items from various rounds of THE ARCADE.  Of course, there are cats everywhere (how many can you spot in this snap?) along with jewellery and styling products galore.  It’s a very Kitty-bedroom!Rummaging around in my many boxes helped me to rediscover a favourite from last year; my Mona Halloween Lingerie from BLACKLACE.  Via the nifty miracle that are OMEGA APPLIERS I got to be able to wear this set on my MAITREYA body. Swit swoo huh?  Add my go-to NCORE boots in their Halloween edition and I could pretty much out go as is; except I can’t decide which BLACKLACE undies to sport seeing as they’ve dropped another group gift upon us which is just as snazzy..Halloween_003

..see what I mean? This is the ‘Maddy’ Halloween gift , and I’m wearing it in purple (orange is included as well, yay!)  I’m also sporting the second hairstyle available at the latest round of UBER from LITTLE BONES while I do the dance of ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ around my bedroom as the cats stare at me in a bemused manner.

I still haven’t decided on my outfit for Halloween.
