Gorgeous Mesh Hair from Elikatira

I’m really excited about mesh and this hair is one of the many reasons why I wish more people would update their viewers and embrace mesh.  For a long time I’ve always really been irritated about how our side braids or even longer hairstyles were forever going through our shoulders.  NO MORE!   Here’s just a quick rundown of the styling credits: New skin for me and my new daily is from Filthy.
The eyes are my normal from Poetic Colors and the lashes are really the best I’ve found and can be found at FTL.
The gorgeous jewelry is from Amorous, if you haven’t been to this store you will not be disappointed.
This sweater dress can be found at Addict and really is a must have for the coming spring.

52 Weeks of Color – Coral

When Luna announced the color of coral I didn’t find anything coral in my inventory so I was left browsing the tons and tons of items on market.   I pleasantly came across this skirt which I purchased.  I hadn’t realized how long it was and when I put it on I knew the Coral pumps from Hucci that I had weren’t going to work so I went to find a shirt instead.  I ended up coming across this cute top from The Sea Hole but with the shape of the neckline and style of shirt with the skirt it wasn’t working… paired with this white crop jacket though, it’s perfect.  Then was the dilemma of shoes… at this point I’d already purchased the skirt and top so I was hoping to find boots in my inventory and I tried on a few pairs before it clicked. “I KNOW WHAT BOOTS!” I blurted out to my mom and co-blogger. Details after the cut. BODY Hair:  TRUTH – Gabriel – walnut
Eyes: Poetic Colors – Poison Ivy
Lashes: FTL – C01 – Natural
Skin: Dutch Touch – Yri – Olive
Shape:  Made by Katelynn Ashland CLOTHING Jacket – Aoharu – No Collar Leather Jacket – White
Shirt – The Sea Hole – Annis Lace Top – Coral
Skirt – hanamachi – Coral India Skirt
Shoes – Mon Tissu – Provence Riding Boots – Caramel
Earrings – Hucci – Tres Circle Earrings – Group Gift PHOTO CREDITS Pose:  Pose is part of my AO, Basically Girl by Oracul (Read more...)

Audjyan

Inaya is a skin store that I’ve admired from afar but never took the plunge in getting a skin from there.  Today changes that fact; I have a lovely ethnic skin to show off named Audjyan. Audjyan comes in three tones for only 1000L: pale, tan and dark with bare faced versions and a teeth option.  I didn’t find any visible seams and the skintones are just lovely.  I do have one concern about it, the lips are drawn way outside the lip template, making the lips very full. I also wish that there were a non-pushup size option for the breast.  Anyhow, this is still a very lovely skin and I invite all of you dark skin lovers like myself to go down to Inaya and try a demo for Audjyan.

It Girl – Part 2

Yesterday I blogged this gorgeous new hair and today I wanted to go ahead and give you the full dose.  I had paired the Blacklace corset with a pair of jeans and these sexy black boots.  If you look closely at the corset it in this photo it looks a bit different and that’s because I’ve detached the sculpt attachment and let just the detailing of the system layer corset show.  As I mentioned yesterday this corset is only available for another week, that is until 1-13-2012 and after that will be discontinued permanently. Hair: Milana
Skin: Dutch Touch
Corset: Blacklace
Jeans: Cynful
Necklace: Addict
Boots: N-Core
Pose: fri.day

It Girl – LOTD

I’ve been kinda in a odd place with my av.  I like her appearance don’t get me wrong but 2+ years wearing the same skin gets boring.  Thing is, there is no skin I love more than the Jolie skin from Dutch Touch on my avatar.  When I put a different skin on her, she doesn’t doesn’t feel like “me” anymore so I’m sticking with it for awhile longer.  I did go for a bit of a hair color change though and I’m totally loving this “new” me. Please don’t overlook this absolutely gorgeous corset I am wearing either that’s only available 50% off until 1/13/2012 at Blacklace before it is permanently discontinued.  Don’t miss out on your chance to pick it up before it’s gone or you’ll be missing out for good. Hair: Milana
Skin: Dutch Touch
Corset: Blacklace
Necklace: Addict PS. A huge thank you to Gogo for helping me get rid of those stupid lines on my images and the awful jaggy shadows.… Read the restShangri La Style 1-5-2012

52 Weeks of Color – Champagne

As many of you know, Luna Jubilee, started a 52 week of color challenge last year and each week bloggers were given a new color.  I think I got about 8 of the weeks and kept meaning to catch up and eventually decided there was no way I could pull it off.  Needless to say I was a happy girl when I saw that she was giving slackers like me another year to redeem themselves so without further holdup lets get this rolling. Week One: Champagne Dress: Celoe – Group Gift
Hair: Elikatira – Collabor88
Skin: Dutch Touch
Jewelry: Amorous
Shoes: Lelutka   PS. I know this was probably my laziest blog post to date but I took this photo weeks ago and just now got to editing it up.  (Conveniently just in time for the new cycle of color challenges.)  Also, fair warning… my next post is going to be pretty lazy as well because that photo is from the same day I took this one so same situation. <3

Maybe Turkey Day? – LOTD 11/24/11

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone that celebrates it. It may not be entirely obvious, but Thanksgiving inspired my look today.  This is a very typical me look, take a cute dress, throw on a jacket and heels and instant pulled together look.  I know you’re wondering by now, how did Thanksgiving inspire this look?If you have been following this blog and my post, you probably know by now that I’m Southern.  So all of last night and most of today was spent in the kitchen.  My RL outfit will consist of sweats and tees. Since SL doesn’t require staying up all night to make a feast, I can play the part of the glamorous hosts here.  Hucci has been cranking out the releases lately, so I chose the Noni dress as the foundation of my outfit.  For a little contrast, I chose the funky grey jacket from justB (they are closing really soon so hurry!). Orange jewelry from Caroline’s Jewelry to add a pop and black heels from N Core completes this look! Get This Look!Read the rest
