Stylin’ on a Budget

I have been shopping fast and furiously today, but I have been getting some awesome deals so I put together an outfit to show you some of my great finds.

Ricielli is having a 50% off sale on all of their mesh items.  They have a huge selection of items, including purses, but you have to hurry the sale ends today!  The purse I am wearing, the cowhide tote leather bag in Olive,  is Ricielli’s group gifty (and the group is free to join!).  I am wearing a jumpsuit that I purchased at Ricielli today and it is very elegant!  I didn’t have a lot of difficulty fitting into it either.  It required a small adjustment to make my torso less muscular, otherwise the small was a perfect fit. I love how this jumpsuit hugs my curves!  My shoes are a group gifty from N-Core (another free group!).  They are a “wild” version of their very popular Coquette shoe. I picked up my eyes yesterday at One Voice.  They are Deep Eyes from By Snow.

The rest of outfit consists of things that were already in my inventory and as far as I know, are not on sale right now.  My hair is from Catwa.  My earrings, necklace and bracelets are from Mandala.  My rings are from Dark Mouse.  My skin is from Mons, and my nails are from Love Soul.

Happy Shopping ❤

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Persian Rose/Hucci/Mons

Hey guys….guess what…..I’m Baaacccckkkk!!!!  Yay!  Thank you to all of my loyal readers that kept checking in over the last couple months.  I really appreciate that, it makes me feel good 🙂  Well, I have missed a total of 12 weeks of Luna’s challenge.  Hopefully I will be able to get caught up.  I am amazed at how much as changed over the last couple months.   The SL fashion community is constantly changing and evolving and is abounding with creativity!!!  Well for my first post back, I am going to feature some new mesh from Hucci and Mons‘ new skin, Jelena.

This week’s color is Persian Rose, which is essentially a deep, hot pink.  While catching up on the SL Fashion scene, I of course had to check out Hucci.  They have quite a bit of new mesh (which I love!) .  I picked up this adorable Glimpse halter and Suede mini skirt. I am wearing both in wild pink, but they have a large variety of colors available.  These were both relatively easy to fit too.  I fit into the small skirt without any adjustments.  My small boob shape was a bit too small for the small top, but a small increase fixed that (I wish my rl body came with sliders for adjustment!).  The skin I am wearing is Mons‘ newest release, Jelena.  I have never purchased a skin from Mons before, but I was looking for something a little different.  I tend to get stuck on my favs, Dream Ink, Pink Fuel, Glam Affair, etc.  Change is good 🙂  I really like the face and body shading on this skin.  It is very subtle and natural looking.  I also like the makeup.  I tend to favor darker,more dramatic eye makeup and Mons has a HUGE variety!  I am wearing the tan version of the skin and it came with several different makeups, 2 brow options (I am wearing natural) and a cleavage option.  I did purchase this lipstick separately from the basic skin pack.  It was in the Dominant pack.  These photos below have not been edited, other than to be cropped and a small amount of liquify to fix pointy elbows.  My hair is from Catwa, my earrings are from glow, my rings are from Dark Mouse, my tattoo is from Chelle, and my nails are from Love Soul.

Happy Shopping ❤

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Bright Turquoise

Well, I normally have my 52 Weeks of Color post done every Saturday evening, but I had to go see Nickleback instead 🙂   I am a huge, huge Nickleback fan and it was my first time seeing them in concert!  It was a great concert!  Unfortunately, since then, my two daughters and I have been fighting colds all week 😦   I did find time to hunt down my Bright Turquoise outfit though, and I must say I really, really like the outfit I found.  It is Linda from Purple Moon. I love the bright pattern and the full, flirty skirt of the dress.  With it, I am wearing a ruffled bolero sweater from G Field, The Pearl Rain jewelry set from Mandala, my hair is Britney from Catwa, and my makeup is Sparkle Mardi Gras from Chelle.  Happy shopping every one!

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Seashell Peach

I must say, I found this color to be the easiest one yet!  I had quite a few items in my inventory that matched.  I settled on this pretty lace dress from Mimikri, called Suza.  My jewelry is the Siddean Dark Garnet set from Mood.  My eye shadow and lipstain are from Chelle.  My hair is from Catwa.  Sorry to be abrupt, but the Easter Bunny (me) still has eggs and baskets to fill LOL.  Have a Happy Easter everyone!

This is just a quick bloggie to tell you that yesterday I bought these new mesh leggings from Maitreya and I can’t take them off!  I love how well they fit and they make my legs look a mile long!!!  They come in several colors and you can wear them with or without the attached boots.  My hair is from Catwa, my earrings are from Earthstones and my shirt is from Zaara.  I have more things coming this week….the new spring collection from Vera Modero and some very pretty lingerie from Taste 🙂  Keep checking back or better yet, hit that subscribe button!!!

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Tea Green

Well, I didn’t find this week’s color, particularly difficult, however photographing it turned out to be the challenging part of this blog.  My hard drive died not long ago, and I have a brand new computer and I am using the new Exodus viewer, both of which are making my life a little difficult LOL.   Since I have my new computer and have started using Exodus, it is much easier for me to wear mesh now and I love it!!!!  This dress is Fling from Chain and Vine.  If you haven’t visited Chain and Vine, they have some very nice mesh pieces.  My hair is Eva from Catwa, my skin is Lyra from Dream Ink, my jewelry is the Lia Crystal set from EarthStones, my eyeliner and eyeshadow are from Chelle.  My shoes are from G Field.  I am done traveling for a while and my computer is fixed, so I will be blogging more!  Have a good week everyone!

Do you have TASTE????

I do!!!!!  Last week, Luminescent Jewell, designer and owner of Taste, dropped a few very sexy items on me…  Check these out!  This black lace lingerie set is called Tease.  It is very pretty and feminine and comes with the lace trimmed stockings and gloves.

This corset dress is called Temptation.  It can be worn as a lingerie set also.
