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!
There are many beautiful things at Collabor88 this round, and whether you are looking new clothing, shoes, hair, jewelry, sky boxes, or etc they seriously have it covered. You will go in there and buy many things if you have not already!
The furnishing for my room are form a mix of Cheeky Pea, Pilot and Lisp. I had to cut the pic down to size but there is a full version of it on my flickr but with the stuff at Collabor88 this month you could easily furnish a very cool room.
Everything that I am wearing except for the new skin and nails from Izzie’s is from this round of Collabor88. The shirt comes from the Sea Hole. The pants are from Auxiliary, The hair is from D!va, the shoes are from Ingenue, the rings are from Yummy and the Necklace is from Maxi Gossamer.
So there are a few things are on my mind this morning.
One of them is this new Perla Sweater from Glam Affair, but it’s available for guys to from Tableau Viviant that you can get at Collabor88 right now as it just opened today and if you can wade through the lag!
The new collection is really really nice. I will get to more of that in other posts though. It’s a mesh sweater that I’ve paired with some tights from MStylez and some brand new boots from Baiastice. The heart necklace and ring are from Izzie’s and the ring comes in a set of two and it’s the group gift if you are in Izzies group, there is a small join fee but she sends really nice gifts.
Ok and seriously the new skin from Izzies is beautiful. This is the Geanna skin and it comes with more layers for make ups than you will know what to do with, a shape, and freckles and gah.. seriously its like getting a fat pack of skin for really cheap. I don’t remember the exact price but I paid under 1200L and it comes with a ton of options so you should go demo it and if you like it get a good deal like I did. This pretty hair that I am wearing is from Truth and my poses are from Purple Poses.
Recently one of my favorite stores on the grid has announced a contest that has to to with their new line, Ladies who Lunch by Faint Paulse has just launched a beautiful new bridal line and I took a photo for the contest. The poses that I’m using in this post are brand new from /Geez/ by Grazia Horwitz. My skin is from Glam Affair.. it’s the Roza Dark Side skin.
The last few days have been full of new releases. The one that I’m most excited about though is Laqroki’snewest skin line called Essentials.
Why, you ask? Because the looks that you can make with this skin are endless. With Tattoo layers you can take the nose from say the Elle skin and you can seamlessly blend it into the Saga skin as long as you are using the corresponding tones.. I am also wearing brand new hair from Truth in this post, a brand new Donna Flora Jewelry set and a brand new dress from Celoe.
The body shown above has also been completely re-worked. Gone is the shiny and now is the more natural athletic but still feminine new body that looks and photographs fantastically. The body for me is a huge improvement. It is totally different from Laqroki skins of the past. This is one of the prettiest bodies that I’ve seen on a skin in SL.
These are the tones for Saga:
These are the tones for Elle:
This is a mix of both Saga & Elle with Lips, and eye make ups.
I have never seen this before in SL. I am totally blown away. Each skin has six tones and a tone of customizations for each. In the photo above I am wearing the Sage base skin with the eyes and eyebrows from Elle. I am also wearing a lipstick layer and eye shadow and liner which you can purchase any makeup layers you wish separately or in a fat pack and it’s quite inexpensive. You can also use the different layers for other skins too… so if you’ve been looking for a totally unique look this is the first of it’s kind.. a total skin innovation!
Today the grid was blessed with a few new things from Maitreya. I’m showing the new pants and sweater. The pants are a bit low in the front but I was totally comfortable with them. I didn’t feel like they were too low. They are just the right amount, plus you can demo them. The sweater is adorable and it has the cutest sleeves and just a bit of belly for an added sexiness.
I’m also wearing the new Ariel hair from Truth, still loving on the fades pack. This particular color is called “Pumpkin Pie” It’s adorable. My poses are from Purple Poses and you can find them for 100L at the Costume Ball. I took these pictures at Neva Crystals Dune place which I read was open to the public until November 4th, it is amazingly decorated.

This hair is brand new from Mr. Truth Hawks and it has a bun and the most adorable little side braid. My poses are from Label Motion and my location is at the Inkwell (yet again) The beautiful jewelry that I am wearing is from one of the most brilliant new mesh jewelry creators that when she launches you will just be amazed.. my lovah Caelan Hancroft. My shoes are from Celoe.
The Concerned Bloggers Association is a blog that shares a monthly topic with in a pool of participating bloggers and I’ve been invited to join by my long time friend Marleen Vaughan who is also the founder. If you want to join, you can contact Ms. Vaughan in world and she will hook you up with more info. The topic this month is Literacy which to me is one of the greatest and most treasured gifts that I’ve ever been given.
The ability to read lit my imagination on fire at an early age. I was an early reader. I can’t ever remember not reading something. When I started reading signs in the car it was like a gateway drug to a whole world of books. I remember the earliest books that I fell in love with were written by Judy Blume or E.B White’s Charolotte’s Web. Then it gradually moved on to stuff like Harriet the Spy, The Sweet Valley High Series,The Babysitters Club books to books like Flowers in the Attic.
I went through my phase of trashy romance novels and then when I was in High School there was a Library around the block from me. I spent most of my time in that library curling up and reading in one of the comfy chairs or taking home as many books as I could carry. I read at least 3-4 books a week in those days. I was a reading machine! Then I fell in love and started writing poetry in my teens. I swear, I miss that library now and those librarians, as a lonely girl they were like my soul mates.
Now as an adult, I try to read a couple of books a month. Mostly it’s when I’m waiting at the Doctors or riding the bus. I didn’t lose my love for a good book and will probably never read one on a Kindle or something because to be honest I love the smell of a book and the feel of it’s weight in your hands. A Kindle could never replace that feeling for me. It doesn’t matter how you read though as long as you do read and enjoy it, as for me a good book is the fire to my imagination and I never hope to lose that feeling.
Upon it’s opening yesterday, I visited the Costume Ball and found several great creators have posted items. I am wearing two of the things that I picked up. Dia de los Muertos Mask with hair flowers from Shake up! is the fabulous mask that I am wearing. I love the hair flowers that come with the mask. The mask also has two options, which are both lovely.
I am also wearing the cute lingerie from Deetalez, which unfortunately due to my windlight settings you cannot see very well, but trust me it’s cute!. My hair is newish from Truth. I adore the things that he’s doing with the fades. My favorite so fair is this one (Surf) and (Frappuchino). I’m also wearing mesh thigh high boots from Slink. The bed in the background is from Art Dummy, and it has some really nice poses in it.
I can’t say for sure why, but it seems just yesterday it was the start of the year.. and now we are already knee deep in October with the Zodiac season of Scorpio to take over. Where did this year go? That is kind of how a Scorpio hits you. When you meet them they are the kind to slowly sink into your psyche little by little until bam they are all up in your face and you are stung with allure. Scorpios can be quite unexpected and intoxicating!
Anyhow.. *ahem* I am wearing this glorious new Steph 2 hair from the Alice Project available this round of Zodiac.. with more hair color options than even I know what to do with. I loved how I could change several parts of the hair.
Lassitude and Ennui also had this key necklace for Scorpio which went well with the light blue of this strapless top from Pink Outfitters which comes in two other colors as well. The tattoo that I have on is the Cosaintoir Daingean Tattoo from Collisions which has an intricate back piece to it that is not shown in my post.
I am also wearing these very cute mesh boots from Decoy that have the option of showing the Scorpio symbol or hiding it. The boots are so very cute on. My poses are from Exposeur for this round of Zodiac and are a part of the “She’s Crafty” set.
Not apart of Zodiac but still fabulous that I am wearing is: Skin from Glam Affair. Skirt from Mon Tissu and tights from Izzies. (Also) Just about all my furniture/house in the background is from the Loft.
