Quickie Chickie

I've been in love with this dress for a few days now and I have known I needed to post it but I have been soooooo tired!  Well I finally dragged my tired booty to the computer so I could show it to you all.  It's from Line and is available in several colors.  The dress comes with a sculpted skirt option a well as the good ol' crotch flap option that I am wearing.  The sculpted skirt is a bit girly and flirty and the prim is, as you can see, a bit more straight forward sex appeal.  My avatar has strange hips and a big booty so I stuck with the prim so I didn't have to adjust the sculpt skirt. :P
 I wanted to show a close up of my 1L necklace and earrings set from Lolapop!  It's Lola's 32nd birthday and just about everything in her store is only 32L (plus she has tons of items that are normally under 32L anyway.)  This set is available at the front of the store for everyone.
My shoes are from Kalnins again!  I got them as a review copy (OMG yaaaaaay!) but don't worry, if I didn't love them I could NOT be bribed to show them.  I do, however, seriously enjoy these shoes.  They have the same easy tinting system and trillion colors options that the shoes from the last post I did about their brand.  I really like how this brand does interesting platforms on their shoes quite often as opposed to the traditional shape.  I also really like the bright red color they have for the shoe/nail option since it's the perfect shade to match all the saucy red lipsticks I love so much.

Same As it Ever Was

Something about the respected and revered and worshiped turns me into a mischievous little woman.  I see a uniform/military/something stuffy inspired outfit and I have to add rips and heels and cigarettes.  It reminds me of in Tim Burton's Batman when The Joker and his crew start spray painting the artwork, making something very serious into something completely the opposite, so I had to add the Catwoman helmet to this look. ;D
My shoes are from Alice project and, just a warning, they are mesh.  That said, they are attachments that come with a HUD you can use to change the vamp, strap, platform and heel colors.  You can purchase several HUD versions each with different colors and finishes (faded, patent, glossy, etc, etc.) or the giant fatpack of glory and amazeballs.  I matched them up to the colors in this look but really you can mix and match colors and finishes from all the HUDS to get the look you want.

Blue and Orange...

Generally colors I don't like together but today they felt good!  Gotta do what feels good! :D  Some of these items are from one of the Dressing Rooms that will be changing items in the next couple days so if you want them now is your chance to grab 'em up at these super low prices. 
 Speaking of super low prices I got these big, retro eyebrows from Cheap Makeup for only 30L.  Yeehaw!  I love me some interesting eyebrows for sure.
Sorry I'm not super chatty tonight.  Migraines for the lose!

Meshy LOTD

I wanted to do a look with just about everything I'm wearing being mesh and I did it!  Woo!  I didn't even crash when I took the picture. :O  My shorts and top are from Beetlebones.  Every mesh release I have seen from Beetlebones has been fantastic.  I honestly am wondering why this store isn't insanely popular yet?  It's one of those stores that has consistently made excellent products and still gets only minimal coverage.  Such a shame!
The shoes I am wearing are at the Vintage Fair and are from Lassitude and Ennui.  My friend Acha TPd me to a club a while back and saw me wearing L&E boots and was like yay!  I then told her that whenever I do end up wearing shoes (which I really am lazy about :P) it's only ever a few brands and since like 2007 my go to brand has been L&E.  I was set against going mesh regularly until L&E started doing mesh releases.  Well, I had to give it a go then.  I still don't use the mesh viewer all the time, since it won't let me use shadows for pictures, but whenever I see a release from L&E I pop on that mesh viewer faster than you can say "zomg vintage unisex spectator shoes of love."
The skin I am wearing is from Heartsick.  It's a nice tone that could cover a lot of ethnic types and is a great change from the pale and tan only that so many stores do.  They even do very dark skins which is always a win in my book.  The hair is from Alice Project and is also mesh.  I was really worried this wouldn't fit my weird, kidney bean-shaped head but it does!  Yeeee-haw!  The one I am wearing is the "naturals" version which means it has all your essential colors like black, blonde, brown and red.  The bangs are separate but I am such a sucker for Betty bangs I couldn't not wear them.

Shoes: Lassitude&Ennui @ Vintage Fair (unisex!)
Hair: Alice Project @ Vintage Fair
Skin: Heartsick @ Vintage Fair
Freckles Layer: Adore&Abhor
Stockings: Sheer
Top and Shorts: Beetlebones (the short come with a glitch layer but make sure you wear a bra or pasties or something under the tank when going on, otherwise people not using mesh viewers will see your boobies. loooool)

Undies in a League of Their Own

We all know League makes great products so the fact that they made great lingerie for the Vintage Fair isn't surprising; yet somehow I found my jaw dropping at how gorgeous this lingerie is!!  There are lots of ways to wear it, bloomers, plain stockings, camisole only, etc., but no matter which layers you put on it's going to look amazing.  I thought that the furniture piece from Melu Deco made a great backdrop and seeing as I am pretty much addicted to leopard print I had to use it in the photo. xD
Ploom made some fabulous pin-up style poses for the fair, one of which I am using here.  The store is well known for their hair and skins but the poses there are fabulous too, as you can see.  I put on some cute little boots from Loordes of London to add a bit of romantic toughness to the look.

Who Hates Writing Titles at Three in the Morning? This Girl!

  But I still love blogging no matter what time it is! :D  Though, to be honest, I'll probably post this in the after-I-wake-up morning time or night time, which will make my title pointless and confusing, but oh well.
  MOVING ON!  New things!  I was trying on this adorable hat/hair combo from Vaughan's House of Curiosities for the La Venta Eventa weekly sale and was hoping to find something from the vintage fair to go with it.  Well guess what?  First thing I tried on was this lovely dress from Icing which just so happened to be pretty much the exact shade of navy blue.  It's fate I tells ya.  The dress and hat and everything is so pretty yet I still get the feeling that a girl in this outfit could kick some behind if it all came down to it.  That makes me happy!
  Here's a close up so you can see more!  If you click the hat you get more colors and there are several hair colors you can get and they come with matching hair bases on the tattoo layer.  Yay!  The skin I am wearing is from Heartsick at Vintage Fair (which you can see here also) with a lipstick layer from Pididdle.
Hair-Hat: Vaughan's House of Curiosities, (only 100L for a four pack of colors!)

Just Getting Started!

First Vintage Fair post!  I'm super excited about the vintage fair (and not just because my store is in it.)  I have been longing for there to be a vintage fair forever so to finally have one with so many wonderful creators has the feeling of relief only a pixel clothes-gasm could give.  Cough. 
This dress from Connor's is just simple, chic and glamorous without being too formal.  Great for a date night.  The skirt is in three separate attachments to make movement look more natural.  Let's go dancing!
My hair is from Loq.  Can't do vintage hair without some rolls, am I right?  Lots of colors available, great textures, and the hair sits on two attachment points so it doesn't freakishly poke through your torso.   Another win for Loq!  My necklace is from Caroline's Jewelry and...yeah...I have a thing for cameos.  *Strokes it like a creeper.*  STAY AWAY FROM MY CAMEO!  IT'S MINE!  Oh.  Uh.  Hi.  Ahem.  Anyway.  The skin is by yours truly at my new brand Adore&Abhor.  Mango, Mango! is gone!!  Goooonnneeee!  I have teamed up with my Canadian all star SLwife, Airedine Poe, and am going to be making skin and makeup for her existing Adore&Abhor brand under the name Adore&Abhor Cosmetics.  Wish us luck! :D

Dress: Connor's
Hair: Loq
Skin: Adore&Abhor
Necklace: Caroline's Jewelry
All of the above are available at Vintage Fair 2011.  There is currently a set landing point so you'll have to follow the red beacons and wade through the lag to get around but heck it'll be worth it. :)

I Can't Help But Smile.

I have a secret.  Usually when I take photos I take them from the waist up.  Why?  Because I hate trying to find shoes to wear. You have to find the right style, then it has to be the right color, then it has to fit, then you might even have to match the skin color.  Ugh.  Too much work.  Every once in a while I will like a shoe enough to not only wear it but to actually take a photo of it and write words and stuff.   The latest shoe to make me smiley-happy-writey-bloggy?  Kalnins Lizette. 
 I am wearing the fat pack version here.  It comes with a hud that allows you to change the skin tone, nail colors, metal colors and options to change three separate areas of the shoe/strap colors.  There are about a kazillion color combinations you could make with the 12 color choices.  I've showed a few of my faves here.  The pair on the far right has the "shiny" option enabled, which gives the whole shoe a more "glossy" appearance.  If you don't need ALL the colors you can choose the classic pack which comes with red, gold and black, pretty much the necessary show colors for any woman.
I found the hud to be easy and the scripts didn't lag me even when I went to take shadow pics.   The classic pack is only 475L, which is a pretty dang good deal.  The fatpack is 1200L which is also a pretty great deal considering you get what amounts to a bazillion gazillion shoe options. xD  Oh, and the skin tinting was easy.  Really easy.  I wouldn't have blogged these shoes if it wasn't because if I can't get the feet tinted properly on any shoe within a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes they go in the trash. :P
