MBA:Make Mine A Baggy One!

snapshot_003My final choice from MBA this round, and it’s a classic.  In real life,  I like nothing more than sweaters and leggings at home, and this translates into SL too, so I was delighted with VINYL’s releases for MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY.

This is the ‘River’ Sweater.  It’s baggy and each pack  includes 2 options (print and plain). There are 16 options available 199L each/1,200L fat pack. There are quite a few cat-themed prints in this release and of course, I had to wear one of them for the snap. There are also some Capri leggings available at the event, but I opted to slop around in my skybox.

I’m still sporting the TRUTH VIP gift hair, ‘Sugar’ because quite frankly I adore it.  It’s the most perfect updo I’ve ever encountered in-world, and I just don’t want to take it off, although I ought to as I bought a shedload of lovely TRUTH hair in the recent Black Friday sale. I’m still sporting the ENTICE nylons that I featured a few posts ago because, well, why not?

It’s been a great round of MBA, and you’ve got one more day left to buy all the things from this illustrious event.

Sneaky Peak: Mesh Body Addicts is back!

Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly: METHOD 'Belted Bodysuit'Can you believe it’s September already? *Gulp* The fruits are ripe on the boughs, the leaves are turning and there’s a bit of a nip in the air. Autumn is just around the corner and it’s my absolute favourite time of year; for one thing,  I’m a Virgo and it’s my birthday in September, and for another,  I simply adore the colours of this season.
Which means that this month’s round of the MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY should be filled to the brim with Falltastic delights to thrill me,  and to kick things off here’s the perfect leather bodysuit for the season.This is a very glamorous one piece affair from METHOD, featuring a contrast belt sitting perfectly upon a beautiful sculpt. The leather texture is well applied and really makes this feel like a quality item; add a statement updo (I’m wearing VANITY HAIR ‘Cocktails’ in brown here) and some towering heels and you’re all set for a night of high-class seduction at a club. Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly: VINYL & FISHY STRAWBERRYSomething else that’s super fabulous this round is these ‘Joy’ halter tops by VINYL. They have a great velvet texture, can be found in 15 diff colors and are  HUD Operated. Each solid color comes with a zebra pattern too. We’re in for a cracking MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY this round, are you ready?

 

MBA: Bohemian Like You

MBA Bi-Monthly-My Favourite Look..is drawing to a close.  It’s been an excellent round, and I’ve rocked some awesome looks this month, but I think this one is particularly special in an understated way. It’s often the case when you first try something on you’re just not sure how to make it work, at least it was for me with this top from VINYL.  VINYL as a brand has built up quite a fervent following and it’s no wonder; they make great individual pieces, but when I tried this leather top on I just wasn’t feeling it.  That is until I added these trousers, part of the ‘Lia’ set from ELEGANCE BOUTIQUE.  The unusual cut-out feature below the hip and the fabric texture works really well against the short styling of the VINYL ‘Katy’ top and as a combination,  they’re perfect together.  They have a boho vibe, enhanced even further by this statement necklace by YUMMY for N21.  To complete the look I added a gorgeous style by RUNAWAY HAIR that I purchased at HAIR FAIR 2016, and added these absolutely perfect statement sandals from GLAMISTRY.  These ‘Columbine’ sandals are just divine; the perfect combination of strap and sole with fabulous details such as rivets and textured bands.  As you can see from the snap below they complement the trousers beautifully; both are so well constructed due to their texture choices that they just ooze quality. The snakeskin effect just takes the detailing on these onto the next level; they’re an absolute must-have for summer 2016! feet_001Oftentimes a look works for me because I can totally see myself wearing it in real life; this is one of those occasions.  A simple look that’s upscaled despite the simple styling due to the statement necklace and great textures; it’s my absolute favourite creation from the latest round of the MBA BI-MONTHLY for JULY 2016.

You’ve got just a few days left to enjoy the event, don’t delay!

I don’t tend to experiment with colour nearly as much as I should. In a virtual, technicolour world I should surely be free to wear an absolute myriad of tones and shades, but alas, the mindset of the real world tends to stay put and I wear any colour, as long as it’s black. Not today.  Today I dared to be different and went all out for pattern and colour.  I grabbed myself an APHORISM ‘Jas’ skirt from SHINY SHABBY, paired it with a slogan tee by VINYL for MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY and went all out, looking for trouble.   The ‘Jas’ skirt is simple, short and sassy and features zips on the hips. I like simple shapes for essential basics; this works perfectly and dressed up or down looks super effective.  Add leggings and boots for a more urban grunge feel, add elegant heels and a long top for a more dressy style.  I added the GLAMISTRY ‘Edelweiss’ heels, which aren’t quite a shoe, but definitely not quite a boot.  A shoot perhaps? Well, who cares, because they look amazing. As per usual Glamistry doesn’t skimp on options or details, and these can be styled a myriad of ways.  I opted to add a shiny grey texture with contrast blue laces and tassel embellishment; these look so darn good they’re practically edible, don’t you think? 1I could fixate on these a wee bit too much, given half the chance. Look at the stitching and the shiny patina to the leather. I just don’t understand how GLAMISTRY do it, it’s witchcraft for sure, but I’m so very glad that they do! To finish my look I added hair from RUNAWAY, a hair brand that is fast becoming an obsession of mine.  I also added a simple cat necklace courtesy of AMALA  along with a more complex necklace by RANDOM MATTER, of a pair of hands holding a crystal ball. It’s an absolute delight, very unusual and a must-have if you’re at all magically inclined. Jaywalkin_002Last but not least I’m sporting another fabulous AMARA BEAUTY release (more on that later!) along with some freebie pink lip gloss that I picked up at the latest TRES CHIC event.  So many events, so little time but it’s so much fun shopping around when you can create looks like this one.
