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 ❤

Skin Fair 2011~Dream Ink

The 2011 Skin Fair starts today and you will not be disappointed by the selection of stunning skins available!  I found many that I liked but Isabella by Dream Ink was my favorite 🙂  I favor makeup that is a little bolder and darker skins, so this skin is awesome for me!  Of course it is available in lighter and darker skin tones if Tan isn’t right for you. First and foremost, let me start out by saying that these skins have not been modified in photoshop, except to fix a pointy elbow or two and to add my name.   Let me tell you some of the things I like about this skin.  I love the bronze color of the skin and the highlighting on the body.   When I look at new skins, of course I look at the face and the quality of the shading on the face.  However, we have all seen skins with a beautiful face but a very flat body.  I always look for subtle shading on the clavicle, around the breasts, on the arms, the stomach, front and back of the legs, shoulder blades and the derrière.   There could be a little bit more highlighting on the derrière,  but it still looks pretty good.  I don’t like my arse to look white washed either 🙂  I have included pics of three of the makeups.  There are a ton available, but these are 3 of my favorites. ( I could have made the pics smaller, but it just annoys me when bloggers want you to look at microscopic pics and expect you to see the fine details of a skin).  As you see, the eyes have a slight highlight in the corners and the shadows range from an almost bare eye to a very smoke eye and the lips are very full and glossy.  Very kissable ;P

I am wearing:  Lingerie from Fishy Strawberry, Hair from Bishwear, Earrings from Dark Mouse, Prim Nails from [love soul] and shoes from SLink.

52 Weeks of Color~Silver

Ok, I know I am posting this out of order, but oh well.  I am struggling with Cerise, but I should have something later today 🙂

My shirt is from Adiva.  It is part of the Studio 54 Revolution set. It looks like one of those doilies my great grandmother crocheted, however I am pretty sure my great granny would not have crocheted me a shirt like this 😛  If you haven’t heard, Annejoy is closing Adiva.  So all of her outfits are 50% off through the end of January.  Soo sad to lose such a great designer!

I am wearing the shirt with Poison Black leather pants from XTC Leather.  These pants are  curve hugging and absolutely perfect!  They are available in many colors and the price is excellent!  My earrings are from [glow] and are called No Round Earrings.  (I liked the combo of the squares and rectangles with the circles on the shirt lol).  My bangles are from YS&YS and my nails are from [love soul].  My lipstick is from [dekade] and is called red lips 02.  My hair is Aida from Glam Affair (Beauty Avatar for those of us that have been around a while).

 

**Specials at Lemania Indigo**

Lemania Indigo has a couple new specials for you this week…  The first outfit, Xanthe is on sale for 50L.  It includes the sweater, capris, sandals, a bikini top and bikini bottoms.  This outfit reminds me of Spring!  It looks great with my bag from Tee*fy, Donna Flora’s Tarina jewelry set, an updo from LoQ called Tequila, and prim nails from [love soul].

Blue Jean Baby includes a jacket, shirt, pants, skirt, and matching boots.  It looks great with YS&YS’s FeelFree jewelry set, Fri.day’s Dream.Catcher bag in Red, Bangles from TuttiFrutti, and hair from Exile called Nikki.

I am wearing my current favorite skin, Exodi’s Sylvan 2011 which was a group gift earlier this week.  (join the group and you can find it in the notices).  I am wearing it with cheLLe’s Muscato Kisses Lipstain, Shadow eyes from YS&YS, Bedroom Lashes from Cake, and Exile’s new Nikki hair in Fall.  I love the way the red hair looks with this skin!
