New Faces

You know how much I like finding new faces I fancy. Well, I found another. This one from New Faces for LeLutka. Actually Shiny Shabby yielded two new skins for me in fact!

Ashley comes in a few tones with different eyebrow color options but no makeups (and no body appliers). It’s a pricey skin for the lack of options, but I thought it was striking just the same. Definitely not an “everyday” look for my particular shape, but the delicate features were irresistible and this particular pale tone really suited my mood. I added some favorite makeups from other creators in the second picture (all listed in the credits).

And speaking of suiting my mood, who doesn’t love to look like a princess once in a while? I got lucky with this rare LODE headpiece on my first try. So gorgeous.

No time to talk

Apologies, no time to talk today. Just a peek at a delicately pretty look that I thought was a pleasing mix of textures and tones.

Incidentally, I haven’t worn a Laura Hurley skin in so long, but I fell right back in step, even with a skin that was created especially for Stella (I loved Stella) at least a year ago.

Have a good week! Not sure when I will have time to blog again…like I said, no time to talk!

Level of Detail

Level of Detail

From far away, it may look like I have put together another nude/beige (which isn’t boring!) look. But on closer inspection, it’s actually a study in Level of Detail. Special mention must be paid to my top and heels, both courtesy of this month’s Luxe Box.

The delicately-tied Rowne top has a level of detail that shows every stitch of the ribbons; and the fabric, an almost velour-like texture, impeccable. My #Empire heels play with light in just the way a piece of fine-milled leather would. You can pump up your level of detail via Advanced>Debug Settings. My LaGyo necklace takes on a whole new shade of beauty when you crank that setting right up to 8.00.

I’m also wearing new taketomi hair (that comes with 4 distinct styles changed via HUD!) and new Glam Affair skin with some beautiful, lightly lit makeups.

Have a great weekend!

on the hunt

On the hunt

There is no question that I have been on the hunt lately. On the hunt for something fashionably different IRL and SL. I am mostly done with “summer fashion trends” (probably because I am already deep into my huge September fashion issues). I adore Fall so I am really focused on shifting my wardrobe a bit for a transition.

I will be completely fine not seeing another basic sandal or “romper” -_- for (at least) another year. OK, I know it’s only August. Today’s style is a simple, military-inspired outfit with some ornate accessories.

As you might expect, I am completely and utterly in love with this clutch (which also can be used as a shoulder bag). I would be so excited to see more jeweled clutches this fall. Personally, they make even jeans and a t-shirt amazing.
