Newness!!

Here I am again, 5am blogging FTW!!! Minime has just gotten over a nasty bout of Gastro, which has seen me spend the last 2 days washing every bed set in the house a couple of times over, scrubbing and disinfecting everything in sight and cleaning up projectile vomit….I’m just so fashion :P I’m still trying to get my bodyclock back to normal after waking every couple of hours to hold her hair back for her, hence my shopping and blogging at the weirdest of hours!

My dress is one of the new releases this weekend from The Seahole. If you head to the mainstore before Sunday, you can grab it at a heavily reduced price. I got several colours and theyre all just as beautiful. The hair is just adorable, new from Elikatira. Theres something so cute about braids about to fall out, it’s a style that works incredibly well in SL. This one sports a colour change headband and elastics.

The bags are from House Of Fox, a store I discovered at the Ch1c event. You have to fatpack them, it’s impossible to buy just one! My gorgeous shoes are from Ricielli. I love this store, although I hadnt been there for the best part of a year. The clothes always looked so amazing, but never ever fitted me right, even after modding. Now they have nifty resize scripts which makes it much easier for me to work with the prims. My 2 gripes about the shoes are 1) there are no demos, and 2) there are no fatpacks. Other than that, the textures are outstanding and the choice of colours is great.

I’ve paired the Muse Blouse from The Seahole with another of my LeLutka purchases. The blouse is all floaty chiffony gorgeousness and comes with a matching bangle…yay!

Because I like the name of the store!

This is my second summer in the UK, and inevitably I end up longing for Bondi Beach, coffee at Curious Cafe, salads at No Names and picnics at Tamarama. There isnt a cafe lifestyle here, and I really miss taking minime for a baby cino and always finding someone to chat with. It’s around about this time that I find myself drawn to stores in SL that remind me of home, if not with their content, with their name. Tram is one such store.

tram_001

Such gorgeous, whimsical clothes, all slouchy socks scuffed knee cuteness. The Piping Shirt and Necktie remind me of spending a long day at work, then coming home and leaving a clothing trail down the hallway to the bedroom. My first shot captures Ash halfway through that process :P

tram_005

This cardigan is the perfect cover up for chilly spring/summer nights. There are great texture choices, all very resonably priced. The shorts are from Kitties Lair and omg are they sexy. Get the pack and you’ll see what I mean!

tram_006

The hair is a lovely group gift from Tram (other gorgeous styles are upstairs in the store). My skin is Natasha – Hayfever. Red nose from blowing it, and rosey cheeked from catching the sun. It was my Skin and Shape Expo skin, but I may put it out at a reduced price if theres enough demand for it. Also, check out my store for a couple of awesome photo filter skins, sepia and black & white. I’ve set them out for 10L, so grab em if you didnt get a chance to get them from the expo.

I must be the most forgetful chick on the grid, I swear! I see stuff, go “oooh that’s soo cool”, vow to check it out (the store I mean) then promptly forget. Then when I remember, and get all excited, TP bestie, and she’s like, ” I brought you here last year dood” shame reigns :P

Indi Designs is one such store. I had seen pics on the feed, *knew* the clothes were so me, and kept getting sidetracked. So when I finally decided to ignore IM’s and just GO, a screaming match then ensued, “How could you have been shopping here and NOT TOLD ME? YOU SUCK” Again, shame reigns, cos bestie had indeed taken me to Indi Designs, on more than one occasion…….oy. This first outfit is “Morgan” and I just adore it. There are so many options, the mind will boggle. Everything comes on all layers, you can mix and match to your heart’s content. Not only that, you can sex it up, or make it a more professional look, with the click of your mouse. GOTS TO LOVE THAT :P

This is “Hazel” and is my absolute favorite. 2 different kinds of stockings, pants, several top options, jackets, prim bits, or not. That’s right! If you’re in a sim that’s laggy, never fear. All your prim belts are drawn onto the clothes, your fashion WILL NOT WANT :P

Lord and who would have thought, amazing lingerie, from the same store? Not I said the fly! But here it is, gorgeously shaded, on every layer imaginable. You actually get 12 pieces in the one folder, so you can dream up all kinds of combinations. My favorite part is the “G” is not a piece of string that gets lost in the av mesh, total win! Ash Out.

Zobovic

Oh happy day when a new hair store opens in SL. Having decided long ago that we were certified hair hoowas, Sasy and I were needing a new fix. It came to us in the form of Zobovic. We sat, we waited, we spied on the setting up of the store at The Deck, we (gasp) sorted inventory and sulked.

Finally yesterday, she IM’d me to say “Hair’s up” and a few OMG’s later I was already in a demo.The textures are just insanely good. Remember how crazy everyone went over Tuli’s pic for the Black Swan? Well these textures look just as amazing. The first style is “Boh” and screamed Mod to me, so the perfect dress to accompany it, is of course the Mode II from CKS Designs. perfectly form fitting, and because of the 67857856785 layering options, you can wear it over pants or jeans. Yay for versatility!

This next hair from Zobovic is called “Krysta” the perfect summer updo. Perfectly complementing CKS Designs “Summer Safari” shorts, jacket and halter. All of the range come in a dazzling array of colours, both brights and neutrals.

An example of the neutrals here, the Summer Safari pants and halter. The shading on the pants is divine, again with a choice of layering, and either tight fit, or regular fit with prim bottoms. Now I’m gonna sip mocktails, draped over a yacht somewhere in sl :P Ash Out.

Homage-Fin

Yar, I’m like a week late, bu I do have good reasons :P This is the final part of my homage series, and I saved the best for last. Those of you that know me, know my bestie. She’s loud, brash, driven, talented and has the foulest mouth this side of Cali. She also has the biggest heart of anyone I know, and my SL just wouldn’t be the same without her.

homage 11-JI

This is her favorite look of all time. The hawtest outfit WWI has to offer, short, messy hair, Shiny Things boots and socks. Yes, she shares my obsession for socks, but somehow she manages to turn them into something that reminds you of a romp in the hay, rather than sweet and cute :P

homage 10-JI

And being the bestest friend ever, she let me play dress ups with her. This is what I would put her in if she ever let me lose in her inv. A yummy, floaty dress from Ibizarre, slightly longer hair (the new freebie from Troof) ankle socks and Oxfords from Tesla. She was cooking dinner while I took these photos, and we laughed ourselves stupid as every time she came back to her computer, I had her av in another strange position. Over the years we have laughed, cried, fallen asleep on each other, gotten drunk and righteous, raged at each other and loved and supported each other. What I love most about us is when we get on a creative roll, they are my favorite times. Brainstorming at 3am, emoing in Photoshop and making shit. She works too hard, she is the best at everything she does and she amazes me everyday. Ash Out.

Finding new stores really gives me a jolt. Now granted, they may only be new to me but I still get soo excited! Such was the case when I was doing the Harajukubox hunt. I was looking for a particular store and was having no luck, till I bumped into the owner of the sim. He gave me a lm to the market place, where I still didn’t find the store I was looking for. I did however find something that made me go squee!

It started with the “Neko” outfit, which I fell in love with for the choice of three tops. After buying everything in the tiny space at harajukubox, it was time to head to the main store.

The “Survivor” outfit grabbed me, held me upside down and demanded my lindens. I gave in willingly, then bought it in the two colours it’s available in, Khaki and black :P You again get 3 choices of tops, and the skirt is so fecking amazing I logged Q in and bought it for her too.

The “Nomada” in black is beyond sexy. The detailing on the pants is something I haven’t seen before, and again I squealed with joy. With all the outfits shown, you get the arm thingers too…….hawt. After I had emptied my pockets in the main store, I went for a wander and came across Issis Bade’s gallery. You NEED to go check it out, also, while you’re at it, look up her Flickr too, made of 100% win. Ash Out.
