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 ❤

Erin by Adiva Couture

We all thought Adiva was closing down…but AnneJoy Paine has decided to stick around.  This is great news for us, because she has many wonderful designs 🙂  This is her newest release, Erin.  Erin is a white sweater dress with a plunging neckline and coordinating belt.  I have paired it with red boots from Bax Coen, and the Pearl Rain jewelry set from Mandala.  My rings are from Dark Mouse, my stockings are from Angel Dessous, and my hair is from D!iva.  My skin is Elly from Pink Fuel.

Its On Sale SL~Electric

For this week’s Its On Sale Event, Electric has discounted this adorable green sweater for you.  The sweater has a very pretty lace insert that is very feminine and still shows a bit of cleavage.  I have paired it with a pair of jeggings from Hucci, but you could easily wear this sweater with a skirt.  My hair is Rae from Exile, and my earrings and rings are from Dark Mouse.

The Vintage Fair-Dilly Dolls

When I received this new dress, Delilah, from Dilly Dolls, I was inspired to try to style it as a Rockabilly look.  I have been seeing tons of blog posts for the Vintage Fair, but nothing Rockabilly…so here is my attempt 🙂  What is Rockabilly?  Well, modern day Rockabilly style imitates and somewhat modernizes the original style worn in the 50’s.  The original Rockabilly style was made popular by artists such as Elvis, Buddy Holly, and Bill Haley that sang music that was a combination of Rock and Hillbilly (Country).  Delilah is the perfect dress for Rockabilly.  It has the sweetheart bodice with a touch of cheetah print, and a nice full skirt that accentuates a tiny waist.  My hair is Pin Up from Vanity Hair.  This is called a Victory Roll Hairstyle.  The name comes from a fighter pilot maneuver, and was a wildly popular style in the 50’s.  Ladies would sleep with pin curls in their hair all night that would result in rolls in the hair.  The rolls would then be pinned into elegant styles. My tattoo is “Such is Life” by Glue Ink.  My retro sunglasses are from Dark Mouse.  My pearls are from Earthstones and my skin is from Exodi.

52 Weeks of Color~Eggplant

When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothing else
He’ll trade the world
For the good thing he’s found

~When A Man Loves A Woman by Percy Sledge

This cute pantset is from Angel Dessous…and it is on sale in the outlet store this week for 99L.  If purple isn’t your color, there are many others available.  My hair is Addison from LeLutka.  My jewelry is Obsidian Eye from Dark Mouse.  My skin is Layla from Glam Affair.  My eyes are Orchidee from Ibanez.

52 Weeks of Color~Indigo

I struggled a bit finding something that I thought was the perfect shade of Indigo.  The other night I was checking out JaZz’s Designs and I found the perfect dress!  It is called JaZzY’s Midnight Blue.  I am sure many of you know the designer, Jasilyn Amiot, as she is also the CEO of JSE Modeling.  It is one of her many SL hobbies 🙂  I love this dress!  It feels sooo tropical!  I am wearing it with Dark Mouse’s Remember Me jewelry set.  My hair is Summer by fri.day.  My skin is the newest release from Dream Ink, Isabella.  You can check it out at the 2011 Skin Fair, which started today.
