Cute boots! I love them and Kitties Lair makes some cute ones for Shoetopia (which opens on the 15th). Fall is such a boot season, you know? I can remember Kitties Lair as one of my first favorite places to buy dresses and shoes from a long long time ago and it made me smile to see them at Shoetopia. I thought that they went with my outfit from Collabor88 quite perfectly.
Collabor88 has some awesome things this round. The hair that I am wearing is from Clawtooth. The dress is from R2. and the jewelry is from Yummy. Collabor88 is great this round and the theme is Industrial Chic.
The tights are not from Collabor88 but they are a mix of Erratic ripped tights and Izzies Fishnets. My poses are older and from Marukin.
“You’ll see one day when you move out it just sort of happens one day and it’s gone. You feel like you can never get it back. It’s like you feel homesick for a place that doesn’t even exist. Maybe it’s like this rite of passage, you know. You won’t ever have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it’s like a cycle or something. I don’t know, but I miss the idea of it, you know. Maybe that’s all family really is. A group of people that miss the same imaginary place.” The Garden State

Glam Affair is by far my favorite skin maker on the grid, and I know that is a very strong statement but – well, they just are. I feel like these skins that Aida Ewing makes just fit me. I’ve had a love affair with them for several years now and as they have evolved they keep getting better and better to me. Sure, I like other skins and I wear them from time to time of course but I always come back to Glam Affair.
This newest skin, Cleo is beautiful. I love the mouth, the nose, the eyes.. and all of the options! This skin has a ton of options along with that you can wear and customize to make it really “you”. It comes with three different noses, three different lip gloss options, three different freckle options, two different eyelash tattoo layers to make your eyes just “pop”. I’ve tried a few of them in the photo below – mixing and matching and well they are subtle differences but its fun to play around with them and find the one most “you”. For the eyebrow lovers, the red brows that I am wearing are option “f”. There are five different colors of brow for you to choose between.
Personally, I like adding all of the freckles on with the regular nose and lip gloss option two. But, if you demo the skin play around.. it’s really a great idea. The skin has twelve different make ups and there really is something for everyone. My favorite ones are the way Glam Affair does the red lips, I also love smokey eyes too on some of them. There are also some make ups that are more bold and fun too.
This skin should be out soon, not exactly sure when but I’d check in the next day or so. You can always join the in world group for Glam Affair to be up on the latest information. To see a different review of the skin, Magenta DeVinna of the blog Not quite pink here: http://www.notquitepink.com/and-along-came-cleo/ did a fantastic job of reviewing it, and in a different tone too!

I am also wearing new hair from Exile (love the new hud), and my sweater is from Erratic and my eyes are from Ikon. My ears are from Mandala.
I felt like making a look of the day so I did what any normal SL person would do.. I went shopping!
First I went to Lelutka and got this new hair called Nook and has a wrap around hair scarf with a ton of color options. Then I found myself at Baiastice buying this skirt I saw a few days ago when I was buying the boots that I’m wearing in this post.. and I thought “hmm, what to wear with this..”
First I tried on the Mesh turtleneck they have but it didn’t work so I put on these two sheer tops from Jane and headed over to Erratic cause I needed to cover up my boobs. I settled on this cropped leather jacket which is bad ass and got the Koi tattoo from them to go under my sheer shirts. My jewelry in this post is from Mandala.
These poses are from Geez by Grazia Horwitz and the eyes that I have on are from Ikon.. they are from the new Eternal eyes and they are fantastic. This shade is called Ice. Hope you are having a great weekend!
I’m a bit behind on posting but I woke up extra early this morning to beat the crowds for the new round of Fameshed. I picked up this great off the shoulder striped sweater from Erratic and this adorable hair from Wasabi Pills. Of course I bought more than this but perhaps those things will come in another post.
This skin, if you are feeling lucky is skin number 8 from the Arcade from Glam Affair. They did a special version of the Roza skin for Gacha and its only 75L a try which is a total steal because all of the skins are gorgeous.
I stopped by Itutu’s little beer garden for these shots and was quite pleased that my shadows are working upon trying out the new Kirstens viewer. Firestorm doesn’t give me shadows but I love the interface. My shorts are from Mon Tissu, shoes are from Celoe and my poses are from Label Motion.
It started with this shiner that I have on my face. My lovely Marls of Vaughan’s House of Curiosities.. made this yesterday and will be releasing it soon and I love it. Marls made the Shiner as a tattoo layer and it even comes with hemorrhage attachments.. My first time ever with a black eye in SL! I want to start an all girls fight club now.
The padded cell was only 10L and from Adorkable as part of the Platinum Hunt which starts today. Every since I first saw the previews of this on plurk.. I’ve wanted it. Who doesn’t want the comfort of a padded cell sometimes?
The idea for this outfit came from shopping with a friend yesterday. She showed me this store LPD.. La Petite Details I believe and I sorta fell in love. The clothing here is so cute! It made me want to play dress up so I did.. I put on this fab. jewelry from Mandala and stalked the Dressing Room this morning and saw this very pale Amelie skin from Glam Affair and paired it with some tights from erratic and some shoes from Pixel Mode.. The Baby T shoes are my staple high heels for most things.
I know that I said that I would not be blogging much but I could not pass up the opportunity to check out the brand new Truth District which opens tomorrow brought to you by Truth Hawks of Truth hair.
Looking around, Cory Edo the builder did a great job giving it the feel of a sleepy little seaside town. There were many of the stores that I love and easily accessible in the layout as well as being virtually lag free to me as I walked around and took photos and I did switch viewers three times.
Some of the stores will include: AddiCt, Curio, DCNY, Ducknipple, Earthstones, Erratic, Glitterati, GOS, Grixdale, INDI Designs, Je Suis League, Leezu!, MiaMai, MichaMi, Miel, Mudhoney, Nardcotix, NSD, PXL, The Sea Hole, Trompe Loeil Prefabs, Truth Hair, Whippet & Buck
But best of all!!!! Join the Truth District group and then run over there when it opens and grab some nice gifts as well as some new Truth Hair Releases and a free one is all colors for the opening. The opening gifts will be out until July 5th.
Below are some photos that I took. Do be sure to check it out! The sim will open to the public tomorrow at 9 AM SLT. Here is your SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Truth%20District/128/128/22.

Quick Post but do check out the new shirts from Atomic at Culture Shock for 100L each, there is one for guys too. If you buy the white 50% of it goes to the Charity. The skin is also set for half of it to go to the Charity which is fantastic. I really love the sweetness in the face of this skin. There are even demos and the skin comes with four makeup optioms.
I’m also wearing hair from Lamb, Glitter Hot Pants from Leezu, Pose from Glitterati, fishnets from Erratic and boots from Gos.
