Couldn’t Resist

DeuxLooks - couldnt resist

I couldn’t resist this springy top, pixie hairstyle (which is actually a new hairbase and add-on), and yes, even this LV-inspired pochette. Give me all the spring things! OK maybe not ALL of them – considering half or more of every event is the same micro mini and boob shirt combo 😉 No, that’s not salt. OK maybe slightly salty.

I found most of these items at the new spring rounds of several popular events. The shorts however, these predate mesh body sizing! They are the best tailored “twill” shorts in my collection. I will never ever delete them.

I know I’ve been a bit scarce but work is busy, life is crazy, and take two, I am going away for a long weekend (hopefully). So, I will try to spend more time here next week. Happy Easter and Passover!


Change of Plans

DeuxLooks - change of plans

I was supposed to be away this weekend but then I chickened out and stayed home. Change of plans! I’ll work on my courage and try it next weekend instead. In the meantime, I changed up my Glam Affair Zoe skin to a different tone (no, I am not over the no fatpack thing) and put on this wrap dress from ISON. And ISON, we have a problem…

ISON, we have a problem

When I demo’d this dress, I noticed right away a major fit issue on my shape. If you have never met my avatar in world, I am very petite. Everywhere. Hourglass is not a word I would use to describe my avatar. More like, boyish. Ginny used to call me his little doll because my avatar was so petite.

It’s you, not us

Anywayyyy, this petite-ness sometimes affects fits of Maitreya clothing on my frame (Isis versions seem fine). I have noticed these patches that I can’t fix with any tweaking via the Maitreya HUD with both ISON and Miss Chelsea, and it basically means that I often have to make concessions when it comes to my wardrobe: deal with it (only blog certain poses like here) or give it a full pass and skip it, even if it’s a quality item. I can literally only wear the turtleneck version of the dress because without it, my breasts just aren’t big enough, apparently.

“Why don’t you just change your shape?” Simply because it’s been (basically) my shape since I made my avatar 12 years ago. And it is what it is. I don’t want to add heft to my breasts or butt to make select items fit without photoshop (which I neither have nor use). Most items fit me. But this is a reminder, that if you have the same fit issues that smaller (and maybe larger?) avatars have, then always, always demo.



DeuxLooks - unreal

It’s unreal how much I love this new applier from Glam Affair. And by unreal, I mean, I really, really, really love it. The eyebrows are just perfection for me. It reminds me of some of the older appliers like Hazel. Why aren’t there fatpacks for skin appliers available at Collabor88 where the Zoe skin is sold? This one would be an obvious fatpack for me.

I may be pushing the seasons too much considering it was 40, raw and rainy all day – but I can’t resist a beige/white mix. I put this together from some older inventory, coupled with the new blazers from COCO that I blogged in orange previously. My earrings, hair and shoes are new too – all at Collabor88 ofc.

I really doubt I will be back the rest of the week. I have no intention of changing a single thing about this look, other than maybe another tone of the skin 😀


Spring Fever

DeuxLooks - spring fever

After two days IRL of driving around with the top down in full-on Spring sun, I couldn’t resist this bright, springy look in SL. Of course today it’s raining cats and dogs, but memories of Spring are strong! I love this blazer from COCO the most!

This is the second skin I mentioned here from ItGirls. 100% one of my favorite new appliers. Then again, I am loving pretty much every one that I have tried. Perhaps it’s the head 😀

Have a great week!
