Sodalite and Gaelle Shape

Sodalite 2

I am in love with the colors of this Chantkare dress and to play with a more couture look, I have paired it with the new leggings from Maitreya in sodalite blue.

Gaelle V2 Portrait

I have updated the marketplace and the in world store with the new version of the Gaelle shape I have been using in my two last posts. The shape is made to fit a size M of the standard sizing system for mesh clothings. So she is a bit curvy and very sexy.

If you’re brave enough to endure the Marketplace and its problems due to the new direct delivery system updates, here is the link. Otherwise, I advise you to pay a visit to the small temporary Dunes shop in world to try a free demo.

Brown and Dots

Brown and dots

I am particularly fond of this new release from Chantkare for Project Themeoryas it reminds me a shopping day with my grand-mother who used to be a very elegant woman. I had convinced her to purchase such a brown dress with white polka dots, a bit more expensive than what she was used to and it stayed one of my favorite dresses for years. I was so proud to see her wear that dress to go out. I wonder where that dress is now. Anyway, it is too bad we don’t have the same size.

Aloha

Aloha,

Aloha

that’s the name of the latest Chantkare creation, a sexy classical a bit vintage dress. I’ve chosen to play the retro card and paired it with a hat from Donna Flora to play the actress stepping out of a boat, discovering the island from a wooden pier.

La piu bona di SL

No, I don’t believe yet i am the best of them all, nor the most beautiful or whatever, not yet… I just happen to have seen some girl in world wearing this title while i was taking the following pictures. That made me laugh a lot!

Now, about the outfit: this great sweater from Son!a is a new release available only at the Modavia Fashion Week for some more days, then, it will be at the store, i guess. The pants are a freebie from Chantkare, also at Modavia Fashion Week. I love tweed slacks, they are so elegant. Unfortunately, the prims of the pants cannot be modifed so you will need to modify your shape if your avatar is not super tall with super long legs. I find it a bit annoying to have the prims going out of the knees and a simple resize script wouldn’t help much as the problem is with the length only, not with the width. One might say complaining about it being no modify is puny as it is a freebie but unfortunately, i had the problem with other Chantkare creations, which makes I don’t often shop there while I love the look of a lot of their creations. This elegant clutch is a group gift from Orta. You can also see a small part of the Whippet & Buck Claven Lace Blouse, exclusive for Le Look. For once, i went for the fat pack. Such lace blouses are just the perfect addition to wear undear jackets or sweaters when you don’t want to show too much of your cleavage. You’ll find the hairstyle at Truth’s among this week new releases.

You’ve already seen that skin on me, and you’ll see it a lot more: PXL Dafne. Along with its sister Candy, it just has it all: level of details, expressive gown up woman face with a great body, not oily, respect of the shape (no, it won’t make you look good when your shape is crap), the perfect skin for photography and still great looking with default windlight settings in world. By the way, when taking pictures in world, a lot of people are using special windlight settings to make the prims and skins look better, I do often too. Let’s face it, SL default lightning can make you look ugly. As a photographer, i often have to choose between a goodlooking avatar or a goodlooking background as those neat settings are basicly removing shadows. I’ve found that using skins the quality of Hart Larsson’s ones was greatly easying the whole process and allowing for more options while post-processing pictures. Hmmm ok, to my eyes, lately, PXL skin is “La piu bona di SL”.

Wrapped Chocolate

Hello,

today’s look reminds me of chocolate wrapped in some fancy paper. Yummy! It started with that dress from Chantakare which is on sale at the moment. I quickly added the jewels from Uzuri. I was already wearing one of the new Truth hairstyle which, unfortunately didn’t have a teal option ribbon. Yes, I already had in mind to add some teal to the outfit when I saw those new skins at today’s Fifty Linden Friday Offer from L.Fauna. There are 3 different tones, with and without freckles and with 2 different types of bodysuit colors. And tadam, one of the bodysuit color was teal! Add some gold hints with Chuculet bracers. I picked Maitreya shoes in black as i thought it was already colorful enough. The bag is an old purchase from Barerose at The Deck mall.
