Izzies is one of those cute stores that has really shone through for me over the last few months. I'd been excited about this Fringe Top since I saw the WIP picture on Flickr a few days ago. I'd been admiring the style of Eliza Doolittle - the pop singer/songwriter not that character from Pygmalion ;) and this top is really reminiscent of her. It's so rare that I fatpack these days, but I really had to for this one.
Other stuff is by the by really, staples from my inventory aside from the hair which is from Damselfly.

Event tiredness and a week of not so much time in Second Life has led me to give up on trying to figure out what I've missed. So today I'm wearing some cute bits n bobs that I'd picked up lately or had landed in my box instead - Just because.
1 - Hair from elikatira@Collabor88. Something to do with costing 88L$?! I need to find out more about this...
2 - Jacket from The Secret Store for TDR. It took me quite some time to figure out The Dressing Room and 'TDR' were the same thing ;)
3 - Pants from the adorable Miss Bonnie Forder, fellow blogger and owner of Mushie. No confusion there.
4 - Bag from Nevery Lorakeet of Les Petit Details who I've meant to blog for many a month and have monumentally failed.
5 - LAQ skin, because I fancied a change.
Happy Friday. It's wine night :-)

I was keen to get involved in blogging the items available at this rotation of the Fashionably Late event, since I was computerless for the last one. Not so much Fashionably late, as completely absent.
One of the guest designers this time around is Elly, a reasonably new brand that I've blogged a couple of times before. Elly Naire makes the most gorgeous girly items and this bandana top is no exception. I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to pair it with my fave bell bottomed jeans from Addict.
The rest of the look comes courtesy of hair from Shag for Fashionably Late, an Abbaesque style named Voulez-Vous. Without being too much of a suck up to Seb (can we save the firing until next week?), I wanted to mention that this pre-release style also features another new addition for Shag, a roots pack. Of course it's fabulous. I'm not biased at all.
Other bits and bobs here are staple favourites from my inventory. Necklace from Yummy, sunglasses from Miel and bag from Orta.
Oh, and although virtually unseen in these pics, I am wearing the new feet from Maitreya. Love them!

Here she is again, that girl who blogs the same jeans everyday ;)
Today is really a LOTD to show off my continual slove of Lavender from The Body Co and the fact that I've been wandering around as a blonde for a while. Maybe that's change enough?! The rest is by the by, apart from a quick mention of exactly how much I love Indie Rose whose mainstore has recently moved, so you can update your landmark with this one.
Little bit of Miss Ross for you today too, just because I've been listening to it on and off for a couple of days, and well..she needs no excuse. Yes, this is me singing into a hairbrush.

It's been a while huh?
Who knew that buying and using a brand spanking new and better specced PC was such a pain in the buttocks?!But now I think I'm finally back in action and excited to be able to take pictures in other viewers (Yay for Kirstens!)
Today, because I am so very far out of the bloggy loop, I've decided to blog some new releases that I like, rather than following The Seasons Hunt or one of the other, by now MUCH blogged events going on in SL.
So, newness today from LaGyo, Friday, Glow, House of Fox and Zaara.
I'm also sporting somewhat of a new look, with a slightly altered shape and new skin (although not new release) from The Body Co. Even though I secretly pout at their pricing structure.

I'm trying to step outside of my bloggy comfort zone at the moment and although todays redhead look isn't a huge leap of faith, it's still a bit of a change for me at least. I've some fun things planned for my next few blog posts though, and hopefully they'll turn out ok ^^
The Twinkle Night Bazaar event is still running, and so very worth a visit if you haven't yet done so. I'd originally popped in to pick up this cute top which is The Secret Store's addition to the event and ended up spending ALOT more than I'd planned. Isn't that always the way ;)
Happy Wednesday everyone xxx

Just a one shot quickie today inspired by some late evening music and the desire to start posting regularly again, even if it's just a bit of nonsensical banter and what I'd been wearing that day.
Lace is so 'in' this summer, which makes me happy..no 'my Gran made this for me' excuses needed for wearing an old tablecloth in your cute girly looks with lace, puffed skirts and open toe heels and henceforth, this cute tee which is new from Aoharu shall be a part of my cuteness folder.
The necklace is also new, and from LaGyo's summer range that was released a couple of days ago.
I'm so incredibly lazy today that I only took one shot. For those that may be interested, I wore MStyle's Rivea pumps with this outfit, and you can grab those ->here<-

Anyone that knows me well in SL knows 2 things:
1 - They've rarely gotten to talk to me for the last few weeks, because since I started helping out at Shag I've been spending alot of time sitting in big piles of hair, separating, combing, brushing, counting, sorting and organising and,
2 - I love Audrey Hepburn and her movies almost more than life itself.
So with that in mind I'm SO excited to be able to blog Shag's girls releases for this years Hair Fair.
Shag's theme this year is 'Icons' and includes what can only be decribed as princess hair. She's named Ingenue and is available in 35 brand new colours as part of the new pallette and new textures that have been released at this years fair. Ingenue's tiara is also texture change. What's not to love about being able to prance around in SL dressed as a princess?!
The second style 'Bombshell' is a Marilyn Monroe-esque shorter shaggier (!) style, with a few more flexi's that you'll be used too from Shag. She looks supercute in darker colours too. I'm wearing both styles in 'velvet'.

Just a little mini-post today to show you two things I found supercute. The upcoming release from Leona Olivieri of Mamboo Chic skins, named Bell and this gorgeous off the shoulder sweater from Izzie's.
Each release of Leona's gets better and better and her store is well worth a visit...her skins are always adorable and her faces original.
The top from Izzie's suits my mood so well right now. I love that it manages to be slouchy and adorable at the same time and the sleeves and bottom prim are so beautifully done.

...And finally The Secret Store's Summer releases are out!
Miss Maylee Oh is becoming a horrible tease with her adorable little snippets and WIP pictures on Flickr. I was so eager for this release and as always she doesn't disappoint.
Summer's collection features everything you expect from The Secret Store, and more. Bold confident colours and textures and easy to fit sculpted skirts, pants and jackets . A great mix of super girly, everyday casual wear and a sprinkling of retro, this time around.
What's also great about this summer's release is that Maylee has organised the collection instore, in a way that immediately sparks ideas for mixing and matching the pieces.
Super impressed as always!!
Have a great weekend everyone xxx

I've always loved TokiDoki - Maya's relaxed boho style, colour choices and flowery girly textures really appeal to me. I'm always happy to see new releases of hers because I know, without even looking, that I will love them and her latest are no exception.
I'm pairing these new pants from Toki Doki with a cute blouse from a new brand called 'Elly' that you might have seen all over the feeds and blogs the last couple of weeks. This vintage feel blouse is not only win for that reason, but also because it comes in this fabulous 'eggplant' shade, that's pretty much my fave colour.
Nothing else new today, apart from this cute satchel from Milk Motion, which is available at The Dressing Room Blue and the fact that I'm wearing the Taylor skin from League, which whilst it isn't a new release by any means is SO beautiful that I'm kicking myself that I didn't already have it in my inventory. If you've not tried anything pre Sia, then I'd really recommend it!
The bangles are a constant favourite, from Zaara and the wedges...well, chances are you fatpacked those long ago ;-)

CHIC Ltd's first birthday event is now open!
There are so many exclusive goodies available here, that it's going to take me all week to blog them! Today I've decided to picture my favourites first...so hair from Shag (duh <3) and this gorgeous Jumpsuit from Indie Rose.
I decided to visit the Kingdom of Sand sim for today's shots. 17th June will mark a year since I started this whole blogging experience, and this sim was where I had my first try at using SL shadows, so it was fun to revisit some memories created there.
Ps - I'm still wearing the same sandals from LeLutka that I blogged on Friday, don't judge me ;-)

This weekend see's the opening of CHIC Ltd's 1st birthday event. A whole host of my favourite designers are included and will have brand new and exclusive products available.
The event official opening is on June 4th at 4pm SLT (midnight GMT).
Today I'm featuring Nena Janus of League's item for the event, this beautiful Vintage Chiffon Dress. I'm wearing it in Moss with a matching belt (you can mix and match those), but there will be gorgeous hues of pink, purple and taupe aswell as black, available at the event too!
I'm not even sure I'm meant to be blogging this yet, but I was so excited once I'd tried the dresses on, that I just had too (don't spank me Miss Seerose :/ ok, maybe just a little bit)
I'm also wearing another new release today - these delicate vintage feel sandals named Misha from LeLutka. They're available in a whole host of colours and both solid and collage straps.
You can get the demo from the marketplace HERE if you want to try them out in the lag free comfort of your own home ;)
Have a great weekend everyone! It's wine night...hurrah.

Free time and inspiration in the form of lots of new goodies in SL this week (and last) mean, I've managed to get around to blogging again.
I've also played around with the layout of my blog a little, and taken advantage of some new widgets that make it a little easier to view and search in. If you're a fellow blogger and my link to you has somehow gotten lost in that process, please poke me and I'll be sure to get you added again.
Today I'm featuring new goodies from Dutch Touch, Tram, Kyoot (for 50L), Lamb, Fleshtone, Kookie, Fishy Strawberry and Psychotropia. Whew :-)

The last weeks seems to have passed me by. I've missed a ton of great blogging opportunities, but no panic, I did manage to get ahold of all the gorgeous shoes I'd been hankering after at the fair...I just didn't get time to blog them! But I've seen things all over the feeds, so I think that even was well and truly covered in all quarters ;)
Today I'm featuring some newness that aren't part of events, they're just cute!
This skin is new from Apple May Designs and is named Teegan. I'm wearing the Peach tone here, which is about in the middle of the spectrum available. I own a couple of Apple May skins, but this is my favourite so far...each one seems to get better than the last.
Emery is a store whose designs I often wear, and the new releases today are no exception. This cute crop top is part of a selection and there are some skirts and vests to be had, too!

Tap, tap, tap....is this thing on?! It seems blogspot's been having some issues today ;-) But I guess it is Friday the 13th!
Pictured above are some gorgeous creations that all seemed to belong together, and I am loving them all.
It's safe to say none of these designers EVER fail...though, the Ryn jumpsuit here, is limited edition for Culture Shock from Kyoot, so be sure to go and grab it before the event ends on the 22nd May! It's available in a collection of gorgeous patterns, from this sequin glam version, to paisely, flowery and leather.
I'm also wearing one of the new skins from Tres Blah, at the Skin and Shape expo which is still going on! I feel a little strange right now, because I've been alternating between this cute skin and Layla from Glam Affair, which gives an entirely different look!
The hair is a new group gift out today from Lamb - everyone seems to be going in the roots direction, and this one's no exception.

I wasn't really going to blog today, but I took another trip to Culture Shock and picked up some goodies that the laggy treacle walk had prevented me from getting near thus far.
Soooo....Grixdale, Orta and Atomic with some other inventory classics mixed in!
I'm also using more cute poses from synt today. Tart and ScarlettLily have already increased the size of their store to accomodate all the goodies they're producing! Well worth a look, if you're like me and constantly on the hunt for new poses, although the store also has other things too!
Some music today too, because I was listening to this on a loop last night. I <3 this version so forgive me for not linking Massive Attack ;-)

I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying wearing Gaia, the new release from Hart Larsson of PXL. The customization of the skin only adds to it's appeal. For a girl who loves messing with eyemakeups, but keeping the lips neutral, this way of adding each makeup on a seperate tattoo layer is godly!!
I'm wearing some of the new collection from Mon Tissu today too, which needless to say is cute and totally flawless!!
Happy Mothers Day to everyone celebrating it today!!

I'm honoured once again to be blogging for Miss Maylee Oh of The Secret Store. This time around, it's her releases for Culture Shock which starts on May 1st!
I'm so happy that Maylee decided to release new versions of her Eglantine Jacket that she teased us with as her prize for The Seasons Hunt - Spring. She also releases these Popsicle dresses in both sleeved and sleeveless versions! As usual the choice of textures is wonderful...both sophisticated and cute, at the same time. All sculpted parts have resizers too, so you can get the perfect fit, even down to jacket shoulderpads.
One more thing to mention today - there's a new fashion feed on the grid - Style Academy, and I'm honoured to have been invited! You can check out the new feed here!!

More Culture Shock previews today and something a little different for me.
This fabulous period lace gown created by Faint Paulse of Ladies who Lunch. It includes 4 sash and button colors: Milk, Black, Rose, and Tea. The gown will be available in all four of those colors, each with all of the sash and button combos.
To accompany the dress, a series of matching headresses will be released at the event, one of which I am wearing today. :-)
As soon as the event is live, I'll make sure I post the LM for you! Only a couple of days to go!

This beautiful skin named Elly will be available in 3 makeup choices, at Culture Shock from May 1st. The makeup I'm wearing here is named 'Gloom'
If you've not heard about Culture Shock yet, here's the 101:
The first annual “Culture Shock” event in May 2011 (May 1st – May 22nd) aims to be a large and important event for the Secondlife fashion culture. Celebrating trends and trendsetters within our business, and incorperating music and art, all with reflections of our own personal first life cultures depicted in our creations. It is brought to you by CHIC Management (www.chic-management.com) and sponsored by Modavia Productions who will be providing exclusive coverage of some of the new designs available at the event on their blog – http://www.modaviafashionmarketing.com/wordpress – in the lead up to, and duration of, the event.
174 Store spaces will be available for the showcasing of products, including a mandatory minimum of 3 new and exclusive items each – contributing 50 – 100% of their profit to charity.
The chosen charity is Médecins Sans Frontières (commonly referred to as "Doctors Without Borders" is an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation.
Omgosh so much good stuff at the moment! Culture Shock is just a few days away now, and this cute little dress (which is actually a top) from Paper Doll, is part of it! I have more previews to report before the event opens, and I'll be sure to update you with the slurl for the event once it's officially opened on 1st May.
Also of note, is this cute Roman Bag - new at House of Fox! Another of the new Maitreya styles that were released a couple of days ago and these cuuuuute hair feathers from Pididdle.
Last but by no means least...those clever chickas from Suicide Smock - Miss Tart Quandry and Miss ScarletLily Saphir have opened their own pose store 'synt' - it's WELL worth checking out, particularly if you're a fan of many of the poses the girls use on their blog! There's a freebie on the desk inside the store, and it looks like there's going to be a ton more good stuff to come from synt in the near future!
