These are a few of my favourite things part 2

Standard

Some time ago i did a blog about some of my favourite shops over the past year, on that post you can find here: These are a few of my favourite things part 1 i talked mostly about skins, and of course a lot was left out, so today i bring you clothes and jewelry.

Now let´s talk about clothes, the advent of mesh brought a lot of changes to how we wear clothes these day, issues with standard sizes, templates and deformer where highly talked this year, most creators had to adapt and learn not also mesh but rigging, for some it was easier than for others, a huge amount of new shops came out, and a few won ground in customer preferences. I adore mesh clothes, system layers and even hybrids of both.

The amount of shops i usually wear here is quite big and it would be impossible to talk extensively about them all, so i´m gonna simply name a few of my favourites over the past year and talk maybe a bit more on some newcomers.

My favourites for blogging and regular wear this year where: MaitreyaGeometryBiloZaaraLeagueCracked MirrorErraticIngenueColdLogic, These of course are just a few of the many brands you can find in SL or my inventory, but basically the shops i end up wearing more here and/or inworld: But a few shops stand out for me this year as you can see on my next paragraph.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Belleza - Wynter Skin
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: booN
Dress: Volstead  – Empire
Jewelry: [HANDverk] – Beaded Leather Necklace and Earrings

It was pretty cool to see Glam Affair  start doing clothes and even more recently hair also, i can´t wait to see more clothes from them.

I don´t really do Roleplay in SL but Volstead  that started as an entry of clothes for a themed 20´s RP sim contest has won my heart and not only are the clothes gorgeous and some of my favourite of this year, but they work outside of RP environments.

Another two shops i´ve keep and eye on most of the year are Perception and 22769 – casual couture, Maggie started doing corsets and does some of the best shaped ones in sl due to her knowledge in corsetery in actual RL, and i´ve seen her work move well father away from simply corsets to a whole new array of products.

In the meanwhile the boys from 22769 can basically do it all it seems, they do furniture, clothes for both sexes house and decor stuff, there´s nothing they can´t do and they do it always with a smile, meaning Manu and Paco also get a prize for nicest creators in SL this year.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Glam Affair- Renee (My Attic)
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: Truth – Sassy (My Attic)
Corset: Perception – Overbust Corset — Capricorn (Zodiac)
Necklace: Perception – Capricorn Horn Necklace (Zodiac)

Now jewelry, in RL i can´t wear earings, not for more than 15 minutes before the itching starts i don´t wear necklaces either because i don´t like things around my neck, but in sl i can and do wear all of those, this year we had a few newcomers i fell in love with like House of Rain, stores i already knew and wore like, [HANDverk]LaGyo and lassitude & ennui and the biggest surprise of them all  Maxi Gossamer who now makes some of their sl pieces available for you also in Rl, follow the link to see which models are available here.

Well that´s all for now, hopefully i´ll be back soon with another instalement of my favourite things this last year, see you all soon and have a glorious weekend

It´s getting colder

Standard

It sure is here and i´m in a mood for sweaters, and totally in love with this one by Erratic (not sure if the name is perfectly right i´ve seen it spelled different ways, but you can follow either the event or store slurl on my credits) available at this month´s FaMESHed in a bunch of colours and patterns. Also from FaMESHed is this super cute short hair from [ monso ] which made me go must buy, since i´m such a fan of short hairs, which we don´t see enough. Not only are they cute, but also practical, and perfect to show of earings, which i didn´t do here because i was going for a simpler look.

And for that i went back to my usual everyday skin which i have missed a lot, with some extra freckles this time, i´m a huge Mynerva fan and Mock´s freckles are just the perfect amount for me on this skin. And one of my favourite boots to finish of the outfit, I´ve had these for over a year now, and every now and then i wear them, i simply adore this TonkTastic  model because i had ones just like these as a teen and wore them all the time to school.

But enough with my old time favourites, i also have some new stuff to show of, and those are the new capris release from Bilo, in perfect colours for winter and Fall, either with or without some wool stockings, boots sneakers or even heels for a more sophisticated look, (actually i do have a set just like these, Winter/Fall Capris with earthy tones and a simple pattern that will easily mix and match with anything.

Also new and really cute not to mention a bargain, is the bench from Cheeky Pea, with several individual sits, couple poses and a friends sitting chatting also, only for 50L and part of Fifty Linden Friday, and still available at the shop, i love it when creators leave the FLF item out during the week, since Fridays are completely crazy for me, and i can just drop in during the week when i have more time, and i would honestly be sad if i had missed this bench, I´m a huge Cheeky Pea fan, and the bench is a bargain, have you guys checked their Collabor88, items?

That´s all for now folks, just remember i will soon start doing Cinema previews, both here and over at The Hottie Cooterati Experience, while we wait anxiously for the event to open on Saturday.

Crazy Hair Hunt – Woot Woot!

Standard

Another amazing Hair, this one from Gummi’s Flower Shop, this shop I have known for some time, their speciality is sculpted prims and I´ve bought a few packs from them when I used to build more, so i was quite excited to see them on The Crazy Hair Hunt, not surprised to be honest, because quite a few of the stores in the hunt where not  all hair makers, making it all so much exciting.

The other thing that really made me go squee, where the owls, I simply adore owls.

Over the years I´ve collected them in rl, my collection reaches now around 200 owls, from a tile in the patio, to my change wallet, from a little pin to the big wooden one resting in the living room, and yes i have quite a few in sl too. So this one soon became one of my favorite hunt gifts.

The top I grabbed at the The Truth District Spring sale that lasts until the 7th, so hurry up and try to avoid the traffic, I haven´t been able to be there for long since my pc kept crashing from the huge flow of shoppers.

So here it is another hairy blog, good luck hunters.
