So Bleached and So Clean

Awww yeah! Collabor88 for July is starting up! I get so freaking excited for each round because each time, the participating designers just totally bring it! The palette for this month’s theme is “Bleached,” so it’s neutral and gorgeous!

Style - So Bleached and So Clean, 1

I’m not going to talk too much about the stuff right now just because it’s late here, but most of what I’m wearing IS mesh, so if you’re STILLLLL not on the mesh train… man, I don’t even know what to tell you. When Collabor88 opens up, you HAVE TO GO. Just have to!

Born To Make You Happy

I think we all know by now that I love mesh clothing, am I right? But what I love more than mesh clothing is my wonderful husband! We had our two month anniversary on the 18th but didn’t really get to do anything because of our schedules. Last night he made it up to me by taking me on a little shopping spree at Celoe!

Style - Born To Make You Happy

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, Celoe comes to us from the super talented LeLutka team and they’ve come bringing us all kinds of mesh wonderfulness! [They’re in a temporary location at the moment, so I’ll update this whenever they move to the real store.] I went super nuts for the new Lolong Trousers when I demoed them. These are definitely “Get your heels on, girlfriend!” pants, especially if you’re short like me! But the way they sit JUST perfectly on the hips? I couldn’t stop staring! The Lyn Cardigan was something that both of us knew I just had to have. It’s SO very me and SO very beautiful! The Gea Top turtleneck ties everything nicely together and I adore the perfectly slouchy neck on it.

Celoe is one of those “I need all the things!” types of stores for me, and I hope you like it as much as I do!! Remember that you’ll need a MESH enabled viewer to see all the fabulous clothes! Oh, and happy anniversary, baby! ♥

"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free."

I’ve always been a big reader. I am usually reading anywhere from 2-4 books at any given time, and the bookshelves in my bedroom are double stacked with books. I started reading when I was 3 years old while on vacation with my parents. What was the first word I ever read? “Visa.” Figures! You might want to pull out your own Visa cards to go shopping this week – especially if you love Jane AND mesh as much as I do!

Style - Once you learn to read, you will be forever free

I could go on and on about how much I love the new releases. The Cropped Sweaters, the Low Ride Pants, but the best thing for you all to do is just go to Jane try them on for yourselves. Remember that you will need a mesh enabled viewer to see these gorgeous clothes properly. And can I make a plea for people to please start using mesh enabled viewers more? I always feel bad that some people see me with big ugly prims all over my body when they should be seeing my wonderful outfit!

Another Hot Weekend

Not THAT kind of hot, you dirty people! :-p We’re on our 35th consecutive day of it being over 100 degrees [37 celsius to you non-US folks]. It’s HOT. It’s the kind of hot where all you do is stay inside because going outside makes you feel like your face is going to melt off. Luckily in SL, I don’t have to deal with that kind of heat in the summer. And my lovely outfit from Stellar makes me hope for summer forever!

Style - Another Hot Weekend

Adorable Lexi Morgan gave me this for my birthday, so I know I don’t have to blog it, but since I haven’t taken it off for over 24 hours, you know that I love it! Anything I love, I want to share with you all! The new Brynn shirts are just fluffy sculpted deliciousness. The straps are texture, so you don’t have to worry about fitting to your shoulders or worry about flashing nipples when you teleport in somewhere and your top doesn’t rez right away. The sculpted part is very very easy to resize if you need to do it. I just love how fluffy it looks! Combined with the Bermuda Jeans, it’s summer goodness! The jeans have a great rolled cuff, and they are low rise, but not so low that you are flashing crack to the world. Always a plus in my book! Both the shirts and the jeans come in different colors, but naturally I suggest fatpacking them both, as you will want everything!

I’m going to go drink a big glass of iced tea now….and pray for rain!

I just needed eggs!

It never fails. You run out to the store for just eggs or milk, not looking your absolute best, and sure enough, you run into someone you know! It’s happened to me more times than I can count! Oh. That doesn’t speak very well of me, now does it? But no matter! At least this time, I was wearing some cute sweats!

Style - I just needed eggs!

Doppelganger Inc. just released their new Vintage Sweats and I am in love. LOVE! Super cute, super comfy, and they come in all kinds of colors. I’m wearing the white & aqua Dance sweats, but most do not have any writing on them. I think they’re adorable! Be sure to pick up the pack of matching sports tanks as well, when you’re picking these up. I chose to pair them up with the teal My Milkshake tank from BOOM, the Patteson flip flops from Reek, and I’m carrying my new Lisa bag from new-to-me store Leri Miles Designs. I almost haven’t been able to take off the Bree hair from Truth since it came out, I love it that much.

Hm. With all these goodies I’m wearing, maybe I don’t have to be so embarrassed to run to the store for eggs after all!

Not in my kitchen!

So now that I’m going to be SL married, I figure I better learn to cook for my new hubby. Don’t tell him, but I’m not all that great in the kitchen unless I’m baking cookies! Do you think he’ll notice dinner is a little…flame broiled tonight? Maybe not when he sees my new pants!

Style - Not in my kitchen!

The Secret Store is a store that I really like! The clothing is often quite classy, like these new Flared Pants, which I am wearing in Cream. Oh, I just love a good high waisted pair of pants! I do like low rise, but a nicely cut pair of high waisted pants make you look so shapely and elegant. You really MUST have these for your wardrobe. In fact, you probably need the entire new collection at The Secret Store!

Now um…does anyone have a fire extinguisher and the number to the local pizza place?

Afternoon Delight

Guess what starts this weekend? Fashion For Life! You may remember this as being the RFL Clothing Fair in the past, but it’s a bit different this year, and you can read about it on their website. But it is still a charity event for the American Cancer Society. 🙂 I’m not one of the official bloggers, but Sachi Vixen of Adam n Eve was kind enough to allow me to give you all a sneak peek!

Style - Afternoon Delight

I’ve been seeing a lot of high waisted pants in SL lately, and I LOVE it. Check out the Jenica pants! High waisted with buttons, these pants give you some rockin’ curves! Seriously, I stood and stared at my butt for a long time. And don’t my legs look just a mile long?? I paired it up with the Cataloon shirt, which gave the whole look almost a retro vibe to me, but still fresh and feminine. I love the ruffles on this shirt, it’s just precious!

Fashion For Life starts on Saturday, March 12th, and you will be sad if you don’t pick these items up from Adam n Eve! Not to mention there are so so so many designers participating!! Get ready to shop!

30 Days – Day 2

One thing about Second Life fashion that gets to me sometimes is the fact that it is amazingly easy to look very cheap. Oh, I think that hookerwear has its place, most definitely. But sometimes you just want to look you could walk through a room without having to dispense antibiotics to people who come in contact with you.

Style - 30 Days - Day 2

Ingenue is one of those exceptional places in SL where you know whatever you buy, it’s going to be both beautiful and classy. The new Aquarellist blouses [shown here in Rain Cloud] is just so pretty. I simply adore the cowl neck and slightly flared sleeves! This is the kind of top that can be worn with jeans, pants or skirts, and dressed up or down for whatever you want.

I paired it up with dark brown pants from the Sunder II outfit from Nyte n Day and these cute little Zimmy flats in faded denim from Shiny Things. This particular color was a group gift back in July and I don’t believe it’s available any longer, but there are several other colors to choose from and these shoes are just precious.

Time to do more shopping!

Back To School With FIR!

I know it’s just the beginning of August, but this is around the time when stores start pushing all their Back To School wear. Around my area, the kids start heading back usually in mid-August, so I guess that’s why! 🙂

The new Checker Shirts and Tux Pants by FIR made me think of that perfect “Back To School” outfit that you’d wear on your first day back. You know the one. It has to look casual, like you’re not trying too hard, but it has to be new! You can’t go back in any ratty old clothes. Save those for the second day!

Review - *FIR* - Back To School

I think I make a cute boy, don’t you?

The Checker Shirt comes on all layers, for that tucked or untucked look, and the prim cuffs and collar are modifiable so you can get the best fit. The shirts actually look pretty sweet on girls, too!

The Tux Pants are just nice, basic pants with a slimmer slouchy cuff. Very cute!

I love to see a guy in clean cut basics, and these fit the bill! Guys, get yourselves over to FIR and get shopping!!
