Running from the Light

February 8, 2012

I have been obsessing with this Leverocci skirt and have made about 10 outfits with it. I don’t know why. I really love the skirt but I for some reason I was fascinated with how it could look so different with different styling. This look might be my favorite, but I don’t know.  I do know I LOVE the big, oversized sweater-jacket from Mr. Poet. Not only is it mesh and one of the best looking things I have seen but …are you ready?…it is free! And it comes in a box of three colors. The sweater I have on under it is also from Mr. Poet and is part of the CapeCoat outfit. It is made for men so be prepared to resize the old way, piece by piece. Still, I love the styling so I think it is worth it. The boots have been blogged a lot but…oh…aren’t they beautiful? From Maitreya and they too are rigged mesh. The purse is LaGyo. One of several color combinations in this style.  I love black and white so this might be my favorite. The wonderful earrings are Paper Couture and are as always….from the Lu sisters…fabulous. I really searched for the right necklace and in the end I loved the tram necklace made of a big soft fabric bow.

Knit Me Up

February 26, 2010

I admit it…it has been a long time since my last post. Busy at work, busy at home and basically lacking inspiration.  But I have been shopping and finding some wonderful stuff. Hooray! It is not all new….so you have probably seen some of these pieces before. Anyway, I love this new dress/top from Lelutka. The sculpting shapes are great and I love the knit textures. It comes with a wonderful belt that has an attached purse… but here I chose to put it with one of my favorite Maitreya belts. The hair and scarf are also Maitreya and they too are fabulously sculpted! The boots are recent releases from Kookie, Wow! Can she get any better? They are fantastic… I love the socks peeking out over the top them.  From YS&YS is the purse in snow leopard. It rocks! I’ve blogged it before but it has to be one of my favorite bags. If you haven’t been there to see the bags and shoes, go check them out.  I also included a large snapshot to show the new skin from Curio. ❤ This is the new Cupid line and as always with Curio, it is beautiful!  (To see any of the photos larger just click on them.)

See ya,
Elisabeth

Lost in the night….

January 15, 2010

Seems I’ve been lost for the past few weeks….traveling around in cold parts of the world….and no internet connections! Back home (finally) and I wanted to post these pictures that I took before I left —way back in 2009. When I put this together it was all new and I planned to blog it right away but … time got away from me as it seems to do during the holidays. But I really loved it so I wanted to share it with you.

The jacket and the purse are from Sey, one of my favorite stores. Sometimes things in sl are so special I really want them in the real world and both these items are like that. The ribbon in the hair came with the purse and I added to the headband from J’s. The tights are from Kyoot …the texture is great and I love the kneepads stitched on. Emma Gilmore (Surf Couture) made the yummy boots. They have been all over the place so you have certainly seen them before but they are so cute and I love how you can tint the socks to match the outfit. 🙂  Boom did the great sweater, it comes in many colors but I absolutely love this icicle color! So, lots to catch up on, I know I missed a lot while I was gone but more posts to come soon! Anyway…Happy New Year to you all and hope 2010 is a good one.

Hugs,
Elisabeth

Party On….

December 11, 2009

I recently met a new designer, Zeerya Pyrithea of  Zeery. She has a cute shop in the Rue D’Antibes. There are scarfs, shawls, tops and ponchos (even some knitted earrings to match the tops). I put an outfit together with one of her sleeveless sweater tops. These tops are beautifully textured and I love the way they are cut along the top of the bodice with the flame shapes. I chose the eggplant color but there are others —all named after vegetables 🙂 Obviously these could be casual or dressy but I thought they would be perfect for a night on the town paired with my furry vest from Madsy. I also got to wear these darling Periquita heels. These shoes are great… not only super cute but they are scripted so you can change the colors on all the parts…yay!  More details on the rest of the outfit below the cut. Hope you go visit Zeery and keep your eyes open, we will be seeing a lot more from her! ok….that’s it…so party on.

I <3 Toasty Textures

December 10, 2009

In the deep, dark of December we all love the thick, rich textures of warm sweaters and coats. Well at least I do. These two outfits are a mix of both new and old pieces and I chose all of them for the wonderful textures and shapes. Certainly one thing that has evolved a lot over the past year is the sheer inventiveness of all the wonderful sculpty clothes and accessories. I think Cocoro Lemon from Coco makes some of the most interesting examples around. This bulky red sweater layered over it’s own blouse is just one example. ❤  The laced up boots from Anexx in red and Kookies’ Athena black short boot are more fabulous masterpieces of sculpting and texturing. The twill coat from M.R.M. has been in my closet for a while now but is still a big favorite….it has a fantastic herringbone texture so realistic, it practically makes me itch.  Showing from beneath the coat is the bottom prim from a Milk Motion tee.  Both tops are layered over full skirts. I love the way the skirts look under these shaped tops! I don’t want to forget the  purses…they are both fairly new releases…The red ruffly one (a 50 linden Friday item <3) is from Tres Blah and it comes in several other colors. The other is from YS&YS. The one shown here is in snow leopard but it comes in both plain leather or in different fur textures in several colors. Oh and as a bonus it comes stuffed with its own reading materials stuffed inside. 🙂 You should most definitely check out the bags and shoes at YS&YS  if you haven’t already! (They make beautiful skins too).  Anyway, I am loving the cold weather and all the lovely new clothes and accessories hitting the stores this month. Hope you are too!

headshotI have had these wonderful Emery tights with the quilted leather knee patches in my inventory for at least a couple of months and never really found exactly what I wanted to wear them with. Then today I found this wonderful new sweater from So Many Styles and the match was made. The sweater is really a dress, but I pulled up the middle prim to shorten it a bit. I love this sweater dress, the texture is just so “knitty.” I feel warm just looking at it. The big cowl neck is fantastically sculpted. And it comes with a version that has a flower at the neck too. The skin I am wearing is one of the new Eclate skins from Lelutka. That is why I included the large photo to show you how pretty these are….just on the off chance that somehow you haven’t seen them yet. Anyway, I think these skins are beautiful and I absolutely love the thicker brows. (Reminds me of a young Brooke Shields.) The purse from Baiastice is real crocodile—so it must be vintage, right?  And I love that it is resizable which comes in handy. Just enlarge or shrink depending on the look you want.  If only that were possible in rl!  I wanted to keep the shoes simple and the Verve suede pumps from Maitreya with their small platform give a nice line to the leg.  Anyway, I like the look; uncomplicated, casual and elegant. Hope you do too. (Click any photo to see a larger version.)

See ya,

Pink is the new Black

September 5, 2009

Pretty in Pink2Ok, well maybe not. But I admit it. I must love pink. I typed pink into my inventory the other day and I couldn’t believe how much pink I actually had. It seems to have inundated my closet. The reason I had typed pink in the first place was that I had found some cute shorts and knee length pants at MNK Shop and was trying on various combinations with existing inventory pieces. Anyway I had fun and came up with a couple of looks I liked and so decided to share them. First of all let me say, if you haven’t been to MNK then by all means GO! Lots of really cute items. When I saw these I clicked on “buy” immediately and when I got home and tried them on I wasn’t disappointed. There were three different pant shapes in the package. (I only show two here but the third is cute too…a little like culottes.) The set of three pants is only 90 lindens—what a bargain 🙂 —and they come in two other colors too.

Pretty in Pink/3 shortsThe first look is with the puffy shorts and a sweater that is also from MNK. The sweater knit is a great texture and I love the shape of the bottom and how it stands out and doesn’t hug the body. It is also only 90 lindens and comes in six other colors as well. I put it with a prim vest from Sweetest Goodbye which worked well over the sweater prim.  I also love, love, love the purse from tres blah. Yummy. The book sticking out and the bow on the front really add a whimsical touch. The knit scarf is also from tres blah and just look at the cute little bird pin that comes on it. ❤

Pretty in Pink/knee pantsThe knee-length pants I put with an old favorite, the Lima trench coat from Armidi, but worn here only with the jacket layer. The shoes are Teese from Lelutka’s Spring Collection. I adore the chunkiness of the shoe and heel. The tote bag by Malt has a great suede texture and shape. It gives this look a slightly more serious tone. Anyway, hope you like the outfits. Stay pink and be happy.

See ya,
Elisabeth
