Bold In Black

flickr look 737-2Taking my post back to basics today and keeping it more simple.  My original idea didn’t really pan out how I had hoped but I love how these pics turned out anyway.  I never know why people think doing a pic in a studio is somehow easier or takes less time; I know I redid these pics several times with different poses and lighting until I felt they were what I was going for just like I would if I was out on location.  It also gives me the chance to use my Photography Backdrop from Pixel Mode which I really do love.

My look today is from Ison over at Collabor88 which I matched with sexy shoes from Essenz and finished off with a gorgeous bold statement piece for the necklace from Meva.  My hair is another of my faves from Tableau Vivant for Hair Fair and my beautiful eyes are from Mayfly for the Wayward Carnival.

Quick Lunch Breaks

A simple look of the day today I put together with newness from four of my favorite stores ISON, Cae, Glam Affair and Reign. Three keep me from running around the grid naked without my sparkle and the other lets me look fabulous even if I am naked.  I also added a purse from new-to-me store Rowne and new pose from Bounce This Poses.

Tropical Recharge

The Black Fashion Fair is coming to a close on August 22nd but you still have time to get over there and pick up some fantastic finds.  Mon Cheri is taking part with the fantasti  Eclipse Bikini Set that comes with the bikini and a sheer vest which I simply adored.  Also at Black Fashion Fair are the Alma Bangle Set that comes in silver or gold versions from Mon Cheri as well as new earrings from {me.} Jewelry.  A perfect match with my look is the new bag from ISON that you can find over at the Uber event.

Summer Time Blues

flickr look 529Today I seem to be at a loss for words, which if you know me happens very rarely.  Could be that I have so much on my mind RL and so much to accomplish today before taking a small trip with my sister and her family the next couple days. Whatever the case I still wanted to get this post out to show you more newness that can be found at Collabor88 and The Boutique.  Izzie’s released the new Neva skin for The Boutique which comes in ten different skin tones and also includes different brow colors and lots of shadow and lipstick options to help you customize your look.  My two fave things about this skin have to be the brows and the lips but especially the brows, the detail is just amazing.  Also at The Boutique is the super sweet Shoreline set from Cae which comes with texture change options for metal and stones.  This is just a perfect, classic set to have for summer and was exactly what I wanted for this look.  Cajsa’s pieces always look so timeless and elegant no matter what the theme, which is the thing I love the most about her work and this set is no exception.  From C88 I have the great top and skirt set from ISON, as you know another fave of mine. There are many color options for mixing and matching but I decided to go with something a tad different and got myself blue *gasp*  yeah I know I couldn’t believe it myself.  I also had to pick up the new heels from Hucci that come with the socks attached that also come in a large assortment of color choices/patterns.  So looks like I wasn’t at such a loss for words afterall and hope you all have a great Monday.

Morning Coffee

As many of us do I enjoy starting my day with a cup of coffee as I log in to SL to work on my blog or browse other social media, like Plurk. Lately I’ve been working on a new house that I purchased last week since the one I bought before it turned out to be too large for what I really needed and was not giving me that happy cozy feeling that I like.  Today I decided it was time to take a break and just enjoy my kitchen that I have almost done while wearing my new super comfy outfit from Somnia and new hair from Truth.  It also gave me a chance to finally use  my new Monogrammed Mug by Commoner that I just love.  You can find the Heart Patch outfit at the Adore&Abhor Birthday event, the mug and Pandora Flats From Ingenue over at the Arcade for one more week and new Maisy hair from Truth over at the mainstore.

ISON & Zoul Creations

flickr look 497I’m rather excited about today’s post because I get to give you a sneak peak of the absolutely gorgeous new skin from Zoul Creations called Robyn that will be out soon at Skin Fair 2014.  Robyn comes in eight different tones with each tone including ten shadow and ten lipstick colors and brow options for light, dark or none at all.  Slink hand and feet appliers along with Lola and Phat Azz appliers are also available for purchase.  I’m wearing tone three in the above  pic with Shadow two and Lips 4 and showed a variety of other combinations below. Bringing the business today is the fantastic new suit from ISON that can currently be found at the latest round of Collabor88.  It comes in a variety of colors with the blazer and trousers sold separately; the blazer also includes a blouse option for those who need to be more professional or just choose to be more modest then I tend to be.  The blouse is also color change with a hud which gives you even more options!
