Mandala

Sunday’s girl

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!

Let Go

drink up baby doll
Are you in or are you out?
Leave your things behind
‘Cause it’s all going off without you
Excuse me too busy you’re writing your tragedy
These mishaps
You bubble-wrap
When you’ve no idea what you’re like

So, let go, let go
Jump in
Oh well, what you waiting for?
It’s all right
‘Cause there’s beauty in the breakdown
So, let go, let go
Just get in
Oh, it’s so amazing here
It’s all right
’cause there’s beauty in the breakdown

It gains the more it gives
And then it rises with the fall
So hand me that remote
Can’t you see that all that stuff’s a sideshow?
Such boundless pleasure
We’ve no time for later
Now you can’t await
your own arrival
you’ve twenty seconds to comply

So, let go, so let go
Jump in
Oh well, what you waiting for?
It’s alright
‘Cause there’s beauty in the breakdown
So, let go, yeah let go
Just get in

Collabor88 is Timeless

I’ve only just begun to skim the surface of the amazing offerings this Collabor88, who has a new location and it’s own sim!

I have to say this is one of my favorite Collabor88’s to date. Perhaps its the fall colors that I’m seeing but how could I not love these mesh shorts from Ingenue with the cute little bow on the side or this fantastic jacket from House of Fox. For this post my poses are from Marukin‘s Classic offering pose pack for this round of Collabor88.

I am also wearing (not available at Collabor88) new hair from Truth that so far everyone I know loves. It’s adorable. My tights, shirt and boots are from Mon Tissu and my jewelry in this post (the rings and earrings) are from Mandala.

Summery LOTD

It’s been awhile since I’ve just done a look of the day kinda post, so here goes..

This hair that is new from Truth Hawks of Truth is so cute an fun, I love the color change bands and I think it compliments this Roza skin from Glam Affair with the blue eyebrows that is new at the Gallery gift shop. I found the earrings at Mandala, one of my three favorite places for Second Life accessories and these mesh finger nails for dirt cheap at Leverocci. My skirt is from Tram and the frilly little top is from Ronsem. My pose is from Adorkable

I also did a close up of the skin/hair/brow an sorta played around with it.

New Slang

“Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth.
Only, i don’t know how they got out, dear.
Turn me back into the pet that i was when we met.
I was happier then with no mind-set.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.”

“New slang when you notice the stripes, the dirt in your fries.
Hope it’s right when you die, old and bony.
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,
Never should have called
But my head’s to the wall and i’m lonely.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the kind of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.”

Tokidoki

I guess I’ve been living under a rock as I did not realize Tokidoki has mesh now.. and wow it’s gorgeous. I love this sweater and pant combo. The bustier, while not mesh can also be found at Tokidoki as well.

Also, if you didn’t get the memo somehow.. Dela has been making mesh hair and its fantastic. So if you have been looking for a new mesh hair maker to browse, there you go. They have some awesome styles. I am also wearing some brand new mesh jewelry from Mandala, and I always love when Mandala has new releases. I spent way to much yesterday but I love what I came up with. Have a wonderful day!

What am I wearing?

New Lily v1. Skin from Belleza tone 15
New from Leezu – the naughty but nice Maii mesh dress.
New Mesh hair from Dela.
Mesh Earrings from Mandala.
Heels from Celoe.
Pose from Adorkable.

The Hathaway Dress from coldLogic

Every time coldLogic makes a new release it’s a sure thing that I’m going to buy at least something, as they are just that kind of store for me.. and the newest releases of dresses were no exception. They are all beautiful and you should go check em out!

The jewelry in this post comes from Mandala and the hair from Exile. The furniture in the background is from What Next and the house is from Funky Junk which are both my current living room. The Poses in this post are from Collabor88 made by the store Marukin. My skin is from Belleza, the Lily v1.. I felt had the perfect warmth for this outfit.

Almost done with my SL house – as a very special kiddo has come to be my daughter… Miss Tilly Faye Olivier who is an aspiring blogger/fashionista herself who will soon be starting Edgewood Prep. The little one in the photo is my grandchild Ayamemei. Both have brought countless hours of joy to my sl as of recently and my heart is happy. I’m sure that there will be more to come.

I love this dress..

Maitreya released part of the summer collection last week and this dress was one of the pieces to come from the collection. I love that the texturing looks so realistic and fresh and this dress is completely unique from the same tired templates we have been seeing being re-textured. This dress has body and a sensual shape, it’s sexy without trying to be, I just love it.

I am also wearing brand new hair from Lelutka called Belle. Mesh Feather earrings by Mandala, Flip flops from Maitreya, the Leah Skin from Glam Affair and my poses are from Purple Poses. Have a cup of coffee and a happy Monday!

Collabor88 invites you to a Shindig!

I was ECSTATIC to see Glam Affair come to Collabor88 this month. There were several dresses like this one above in various colors and three different makeups for the very lovely Mia skin that debuted at Skin Addictions Skin Fair a few weeks ago. Also, lets talk about perfect messy updo’s.. this hair from D!va wins at being perfectly wonderful party hair. Collabor88 is rocking this month.

I accented the outfit with some jewelry not at Collabor88 from Mandala and these heels from Celoe and tights from Oh Mai that I’ve had in my inventory forever that are my “go to” tights.

I’ve been a bit behind on posting lately but I soon hope to get caught up.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend!
