brushplay again 2

A third version of the Lily skin is now available at Belleza. This one has red brows and freckles. The face is a great combination of softness and feminity yet thanks to the shading, it doesn’t look too young.

Reading feeds has become very valuable for me since I am often away from Second Life lately and I miss a lot of new releases. I was happy to learn that Emery is joining the mesh bandwagon. I am showing here a yummy top but there is also a short dress with ethnic prints. You can also admire on a lot blogs the new mesh hair by DeLa. The styles are so very sexy and feminine, perfect for the new shape I am working on. I would have wished a bit more contrast in the textures, or roots options and they would have been perfect for me.

I have played again with hair brushes, a bit too much but it was fun so I couldn’t stop. I have refined a bit the Taylor shape so maybe I will release it soon. The body is much more curvy when what I am used to make but it looks very sexy this way while still fitting a size M.

Excited

Chinoiserie

I am very excited about two different fashion news in Second Life today. One is that Azure Electriteeth is now also making hair for her brand LaViere. There are three styles so far. I am wearing the most sexy on them on these pictures.

Second and awesome news is the opening of a new store, born from the collaboration of two famous designers, One Bad Pixel, which will provide us with sexy quality mesh clothing. “Can you guess who they are?” is the question you have to answer before the 24th april midnight to have a chance to win the next release from the brand. One is very easy to find while I am still trying to guess who the second is.

Since I have seen a preview of that cheong, i had to have it and imagine how delighted i was to discover the clothes were so well thought after that the cigarette pants are actualy fitting really good under it, wearing the same size. This is so very rare with mesh items, even coming from a same quality store that it is worth mentionning it. The store also offers custom fitting so you can adapt the clothes to your own very private shape instead of having to modify it. The service might seem expensive at first, 1100 L$ for a single product, then 200 L$ for each additional colour. Though, keep in mind it is still a lot of work for the designer.

Cashmere

Hello,

Cashmere

I have been paying a visit to Culture Shock today, actually, a bit more than a visit as the huge success makes it pretty hard to have anything to rezz. I admit I have let my avatar online there waiting for things to rezz for about thirty minutes at several times as all what I was seeing was awesome greyness. But perseverance and patience pays sometimes and I was able to grab most of the items I wanted and more.

Previews and blogs are great. Thanks to them, I as actualy able to navigate a bit the grey ocean and pick the Exile Hair as I knew their name without seeing anything. On the contrary, I was lucky to rezz and discover a store named Cashmere, where i have bought this very sexy bodysuit.

Cashmere 2

The absolutely fabulous glasses are from Mr Poet. You have to get them. They have tons of options for the ridiculous price of 250 L$. While speaking about accessories… have a look at this outfit. To me, a lot of its drama comes from the accessories. It is often the finishing touch for what you have been styling. In this case, the scarf from sur+, the glasses from Mr Poet and the bag from B@rerose are giving this sexy businesswoman look. To honor the so important accessories to any fahionista, Maylee Oh and I have started a new blog: Acces Libre. It stands for The Accessories Library. Pay us a visit there if you haven’t already, or if you are looking for a bag, a scarf, a hat, etc. to complete your outfit.

Bling Bling

Hello,

Bling Bling

A very quick post before the New Year’s Eve. This year, like 90% of the past years for 15 years, I will celebrate the New Year with my best friends. For the occasion, we like to give a theme and for this time, it is “Bling Bling”. You can imagine how it made me laugh as i immediately thought about being a blingtard.

Bling Bling 2

In SL, the Vodka sequined Kyoot dress for Fifty Linden Friday Friday arrives right on time. In RL, I’ll go for less bling… I’ll cheat, just a bit of bling in the make-up will do it. About make-up, I’ve decided to go for a much more festive skin with the group gift from Glam Affair and I’ve added the FLF tatoo layer from L.Fauna which shows glitter. The picture below is not postprocess, only cropped so you can judge about the quality of the skin and make-up.

I hope you’ll have a lot of fun tonight, celebrate with friends and family. Be nice, don’t drink too much (in other words, don’t be as silly as me…).

Bleu Canard

Hello,

Call it the way you like: teal, cyan, cerulean blue, turquoise, bleu pétrole. I call it duck blue and it is one of my favorite colors.

Bleu Canard 2

This morning, when I’ve found that skirt at MNK, I was all excited, as I like a lot the combination of taupe and bleu canard (yes, a little of french here as I often prefer the names we have for the colors). Then, a small nightmare began as I couldn’t find a matching top. I’ve tried brown but it was a bit sad. White or cream were not working either. Finaly, i’ve found that sweater at So Many Styles. I was looking for an occasion to use those jewels from Sigma I had picked up at a special price at Coppley Square some time ago; the thin teal line makes it a perfect addition to the outfit. I’ve also found an excuse to buy that bag you’ve seen in plenty of blogs, including Élan by Fayne Khandr (that is where i’ve picked the LM), it is from B@rose and definately gorgeous.

Bleu Canard

I was a bit disapointed while working on this outfit. I thought it would be easy to find tops with the bleu canard color but after visiting all my favorite shops, I’ve found very little choices. It is funny to see colors wearing the same name (teal) really don’t match.
Last time i went for some shopping in RL, it was a color in fashion, we could see it in plenty of shops but not in SL. I insist here, it is more blue than green and what we often see is a bit too green and too light.

I am often amazed when talking with people to see we can use so different names for the same color. I remember having a discussion with a friend about violet. I wanted violet mascara and he came back with mauve. So, I told him thank you but that is not the right color, what you brought me is much lighter than violet. And then, a very long discussion issued with comparisons like “mauve is kind of like lilac, while violet is like the flower, dark, a bit like aubergine”. In the end, he still calls it mauve.
