A Gentle Halloween..

broomstick_002

Can there be such a thing? Well, for this post I wanted to create a softer, gentler look for Halloween.  Not everyone wants their costumes to be super-loud and in your face with props and sound effects and all sorts of nasty.  Some people like a subtler approach, and I found that incredibly easy to do courtesy of a few fabulous bits and bobs that I discovered at THE MESH BODY ADDICTS FAIR.

First of all I’m wearing a skin by a brand that I’ve never worn before, ‘Jennifer’ by LURE.  It’s not a bad skin at all actually: the body looks pretty good and the skin tone looks nice and constant across my MAITREYA body. The face is pretty too, although the brows weren’t to my preference at all.  Fortunately a NB option meant I could add some ZOUL CREATIONS eyebrows to make for a very lovely face indeed.  I’m not wearing any cosmetics other than the brow add-on and I think you’ll agree with me that as faces go she’s lovely.  With that in mind I think she’s a great choice for a basic everyday wear skin.

So an understated outfit for an understated skin is required, and some of the separates on sale at THE MESH BODY ADDICTS FAIR more than meet my requirements.  You can’t go wrong with simple yet quality pieces in SECOND LIFE, but the texturing has to be spot on. These ‘Seleste’ tops by VISION are super simple to wear yet very effective because their colours are nice and bright and the surface looks perfect.  An absolute wardrobe staple and incredibly cheap at the price too; a fatpack costs L$799 and contains 15 tops in a shade for every occasion. I wouldn’t normally do this but I would say if you have the Linden you might want to consider splashing out on the fatpack because you will get so much wear out of these tops! (A three-pack of tops costs L$199 btw, still great value but that fatpack is where it’s at!)

My top was easy enough to sort out, but what about the bottom? Trousers? Nah, I fancied a nice skirt and instead of raiding my virtual closet for a denim number, as is my usual choice, I decided to go for something super girly. This ABSOLUT VENDETTA Skater Skirt is just the ticket and totally works with the VISION top, it’s like they were made for each other! What witchcraft is this?!   In fact, I am not one at all for dotty prints but I absolutely adore the texture on this skirt; it’s charming and the colour perfectly complements my hair and hat, which are incidentally gifts available  from WASABI PILLS (hair) and LYRICAL & BABYSTEPS at TRUNK OR TREAT 2015.

To finish is my only purchase from FIFTY LINDEN FRIDAYS this week, and whenever LIVALLE is featured I’m there quick as a flash.  I absolutely adore LIVALLE footwear, it’s so beautifully made and packaged and to get two pairs of suitably spooky heels (one orange and one black) for just Fifty Lindens is a real treat indeed.

So there you have it; a nice gentle Halloween look for the more introverted amongst us.  What do you think?

Seven Days of Denim Challenge:Day 4

student denim_001

I’m having so much fun with this challenge!

Today I’ve gone for an Autumn inspired look.  It’s been quite cold today and thoughts are now turning towards the change of season, so here’s Kitty on her way to college or university wearing her  fall colours with pride and looking rather beautiful if you ask me.

To create this look I had a good rummage in my inventory but I also included a couple of items from current events (oh the irony when you consider my previous post!).

Let’s start with the fabulous denim jacket and tee combo that Kitty is sporting.  It’s by COCO and is available from THE MENS DEPT.  I love this vintage denim jacket styling and the upturned sleeve detail looks great contrasted with the baggy shape of the jumper underneath.  This is a beautifully crafted item and a real joy to wear; the shape is completely realistic. I’ve teamed it with some old inventory finds; there’s a brown denim skirt from TEE*FY and some woolly tights from FISHY STRAWBERRY. I’m still enjoying  the BELLEZA ‘Chloe’ skin, and I’ve worn it coupled with lipstick in a nice red (that was a tattoo layer included with the skins).

Accessories include this epic necklace by ENFANT TERRIBLE  from THE FANTASY COLLECTIVE that’s just begun. It’s actually a pentacle with the slogan ‘Witch Please’  (so this post now qualifies as a ‘Witchy Wednesday’ as well, woot!) and I think it really works with the colours of the tee underneath.  It’s rather bohemian, don’t you think?

Last but not least are these beautiful, bookish  tortoiseshell ‘Pegley’ glasses by ISON, and a fabulous hairstyle from WASABI PILLS called ‘Megumi’ that I forgot I had!

 A slick of mustard nail paint (Courtesy of my fave Slink nail applier’s from IZZIES) completes the look, and I think it’s my best one yet!  (Obviously you can’t see my feet, but if you could I’m totally wearing clumpy Doc Martin style boots; the ones from the ARCADE by ILO that I completely adore)

The Lesser-Spotted Domestic Kitty Goddess…

I bloody hate chores I do. 
Hands that do dishes are not as soft as my chops, contrary to popular belief!

BUT it must be said that some of the LOVE DONNA FLORA goodies are making the washing of plates and scraping of dishes a much better experience all round.

Have you been yet? I popped by again earlier to pick up a few more treats and to see how the event was going, and I’m delighted to say that even though it’s been running a few days there were plenty of people shopping which was very satisfying to witness indeed. So let me tell you about what I am wearing. 

EVEN FLOW have a number of items for sale at the event, and for my look I am rocking their tee and jeans combo. I haven’t worn jeans in ages, preferring to stick to tights and short skirts and boots (I’ve been going through a punk phase)but these jeans are so pretty with their delicate surface pattern, rose waistband fabric and pocket detail as well as excellent creasing around the knee, that I couldn’t resist slipping them on. These are very wearable jeans and I think I will be sporting them often!

You’ll also spy my glorious FLAIR manicure. Again, this is available from the LOVE DONNA FLORA event, and it features plain colour accentuated with a daisy motif and white tip. Very stylish and looks great with both casual and dressier outfits, and it didn’t chip when I was scrubbing the remainder of Jez’s legendary lasagne off the dish, which was nice…This is a nice, smart casual look, and I added some LVLE pumps in grey, as well as my trusty friendship bracelets and hair from WASABI PILLS. My skin is from the ever delectable IZZIE’S.

Jeans

A quick change, and I was ready for a night out. My dress is also from EVEN FLOW. This is the ‘Evolution’ dress and it’s just sumptuous, I absolutely adore this ‘grape-berry’ tone and it fits like a dream. I teamed it with lace leggings from LARK and there you have it, day to night outfit perfection all whilst helping a fabulous cause.
(Again, I’m sporting the excellent LVLE mesh pumps (to fit Slink feet) but this time in a purple shade. (They’re deceptively simple looking creations, but do not let that fool you, they’ve been carefully crafted, textured and are extremely effective, an essential purchase to quickly enhance any outfit!))

Also at LOVE DONNA FLORA are a number of pose sets from some really great creators. You can never have enough poses in my opinion, and they’re all worthy of your Lindens. The poses in theses two images are from ELEPHANTE, part of their ‘Trust Me’ set and very lovely they are too.

Here’s a link to the Seraphim Gallery for a run-down of the gorgeousness available at the event, and here’s your TP.

Off you trot now and buy lots of lovely things for this awesome cause! (I’ll be featuring more items tomorrow)
