e! Eclectic Apparel @ Cinema!

OMG. I am the child of a die hard trekkie.  I saw this dress at Cinema… and had to have it in a few colors.  e! Eclectic Apparel’s got a couple of new offerings at Cinema, and they are in the Sci-fi genre, and from the event the “Star Trek inspired” dress by them is one of my favorite, stand out purchases.  This designer has been releasing some really good quality and creative designs lately and is definitely one on my personal watch list.

In my head…  I can hear Captain Kirk “Our Heroine has lost her laser gun and is stuck on a strange pink planet…  What will happen next?”

If you haven’t been to Cinema yet, here’s an excerpt from the press release:

“We have 80 stores located inside of 7 individual theaters, each of which have created BRAND NEW items.  Make sure you visit each theater to find your favorite stores and discover new ones, too, you won’t be disappointed!” RubyStarlight Writer

FaMESHed Fall Goodness!

The October round of FaMESHed has been out a couple of days, and I think I have been back three times.  I just love the quality of the designers, the styling and the colors all in this round. It’s one of my most favorite monthly events, and one that I continually find something fresh and exciting at.

e! Eclectic Apparel has released this fantastic turtleneck sweater and plaid skirt.  So many colors to choose from, and I LOVE the fit and look of both pieces.  I’m sure I’ll be going back and buying more.

More Vintage Fair Hotness!

If you haven’t been to the Vintage Fair yet, now is a great time to go, low lag, crowds have thinned down a bit and 3 sims full of vintage hotness.  Yes, 3 sims jam packed full.  And I have to say, the layout this year is one of the best event builds ever.  Easy to navigate, *beautiful* build by Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil, and not a bad spot on any of the sims.  It lasts until the 29th and is totally worth spending a few hours strolling through, just to see everything.

Tres Blah, Glam Affair & Elikatira all brought fantastic new items to this round of Collabor88.  I am in love with these leggings, they are slick and hot!  The skin from Glam affair is soooo gorgeous.  The Roza skin done in this fantastic porcelain shade.

Auxiliary has these great tanks and skirts, and of course I had to show off the sugar skull one, since I totally love them!  And with this skin, I thought it would be the perfect time to break out the pink.

The dress is called “Tanya” and is a great mesh dress that comes in a ton of colors!  I loved the pop of the cranberry color and knew this was the one for me (Even though I rarely wear red!. The hair is from a gatcha at Epoque and is a perfect compliment to the dress.

The Vintage Fair starts on the 4th of August and is being organized by the wonderful team at Chic Management!  It’s being sponsored by: Aura, Belleza, Cheeky Pea, coldLogic, Gizza Creations, Indyra Originals, PurpleMoon Creations, oOo Studio and Trompe Loeil.  This is one of my most favorite events of the year, and let me tell you… This year ROCKS!

New Elikatira, Miel @ 50L Friday, Bent. preview!

So if you were at Miel on Friday and the 50L Friday item wasn’t out, you have until Sunday to pick up the dress.  Which is really cool of Miel, and a great deal.  Because EACH of the 6 choices for 50L is really Like 6 dresses with a ton of belts.  The dress changes colors on a hud, and you can also change the belts.

The new release from Elikatira called Control is fab!  Sweeping pulled forward braid with a color change hud.  It’s so beautiful.  And if you haven’t been to TDR (The Dressing Room) yet, the Glam Affair skin Rosa is just stunning.  I’m just torn between Rosa and Mia, and with the new Cassiopea and Lilith preview…  Glam Affair is HOT this summer.

Bent. Have you hear of Bent.? This is a pose and prop maker that I am just loving right now.  I was pleasantly surprised by a review copy of the backdrop you see in the picture.  It’s called Escher prop and has over 20 poses!  The best part?  This is a sneak preview for the VINTAGE FAIR!  mhm.  I said it.  Just under a week and counting.  Vintage Fair is coming!

Deco… does casual military style (And more!).

Deco has turned the corner on design.  This was one of my favorite jewelry stores in all SL for the longest time, I think I have almost every piece ever released from this store.  And now they have an incredible line of mesh clothing, hats, shoes military-style gear and any number of other odds and ends you didn’t know you needed until you saw them (like a mesh viking beard, or a plague doctor mask).  Yesterday Deco released these fantastic Wooly Pully sweaters and sent out a great group gift of a pink one.

These sweaters have great detail and a beautiful cut to them, I love the slightly long sleeves and the arm patches. Shown above in the pink group gift (not sold in the store!) and below in licorice.

While I was in the store I grabbed a couple of other things to show you all.  The cargo pants are fantastic!  And they came with the cutest shoes!  I was a little nervous on purchasing since I didn’t notice a demo, but I am really glad I did.  I’ll be going back and getting these pants in a few other colors!  And the shoes!  I love them.

I also grabbed this super cute mesh dress “M100 Dress” that could be worn in a number of different ways.  It’s got a hood in the back and the nice longer sleeves.

Mesh Around – BUID, Jinx’d Inc.

Still more gorgeous items from the Mesh Around Hunt!  How awesome is this hunt?  Loads of really nice stuff, a fun time and for me, exposure to new designers, which is the best part of all.

The bow front top from Jinx’d Inc is really sweet, a great neutral color that can be worn in so many ways and with nearly every color.  The S Jeans from BUID are a great plumb plaid that are funky and fun.  I found the fit of the jeans to be very good, and the nice thing about mesh freebies is that you get to try the actual item, and not a demo.

The skin I am wearing is from the newest Collabor88.  It’s by Glam Affair, and called Mia.  The make-up is Disco C.  Love it!  I can’t wait for a full release of this skin!

See that bench in the background?  That’s the Mesh Around Item from Cheeky Pea!  It’s so gorgeous.  The sweet ivy crawling over the arm and the beautiful bird texture are fantastic.  Cheeky Pea always adds such great details to their pieces.  This is totally worth anyone grabbing!

ColdLogic romps around…

Have you seen the last release from ColdLogic?  This is one of my favorite shops!  The styling, detail, and fit are some of the best going.  Here are three of the six new Rompers that they released just over a week ago.  I’ve been dying to show then to you, but between the fantastic Mesh Around Hunt and the CHIC2 event…  it was impossible!

This one is called Briggs and is shown in Key Lime.  Has a great retro feel.

A great strapless set here called Ella and shown in Plum.

And this super elegant wrap style is called Mathis and shown in toffee.

The nails in all the pictures are from Synthetique.  I can’t say enough about this brand, these mesh nails are the best hands down in SL.  The coolest thing is never having to take them off for different nails!  You just put on the hud the the nails you want, pick the color and boom!  Any Synthetique hud, works with any pair of Synthetique nails!
