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.

Faux, Faux, Foxy

January 5, 2012

I adore Anya Ohmai’s darling little “fox” stole. And yes…it is faux fur (and of course it is faux, faux fur being pixels and all). She has done an amazing job with this piece….and I love the retro-ness of it. I am wearing it with some fabulous mesh items from Celoe. These pants are just wonderful. Love the shape, the texture, the shading and since they are mesh is is so cool to be able to sit in them and they actually still look like pants! The jacket is also Celoe…once again great technical work with the shape and artistic work with the textures and if either of these were available in rl I would be adding them to my closet. The travel bag is from Mon Tissue—shown here in camel but it comes in other super fun colors so you can always travel in style. The off-white handbag is from Orta. I added some favorite “oldies” to the mix including Dango’s beret by Azure Electricteeth, the fun Fly Earrings by Polyester Partridge, Paper Couture’s huge Moon Ring and LaGyo’s gorgeous bracelets.

It’s been a long time…

December 27, 2011

Wow…time really does fly…I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post! A really, really long time. What happened? Well lots of things have been going on in my RL including a very, very busy work schedule, a lot of travel and a computer that was not getting along with SL. I have popped into SL but not been able to spend much time there. Mostly lag and problems with viewers made it next to impossible to take pictures. Finally, with the new SL Beta viewer and some updates on my computer, things seem to be better. (Fingers crossed.) I have a new blog office inworld but I had to give up my wonderful mountain chalet when the winter sim where I had lived for 2 years closed down. So for now anyway my home is my office!  I am amazed at the work being done on the grid right now. I love the mesh items and in addition to long-time favorite designers there are so many new and talented people adding their creativity to the mix.

So just to say “hi”  here I am in my office.  I took these pictures a while back so I am wearing a couple of favorite older pieces here. The Lelutka jacket is not at all new but still a wonderful, wonderful piece. The long stole is actually a piece from Mr. Poet that is part of a coat set but I love the way it drapes over the shoulder and it is just the right color for the grey jacket. (The oversize turtleneck is from the same outfit and I love it because of the way it can come up and cover the bottom part of the face.) The softly pleated skirt is from mon tissu and like everything those girls do it is beautiful in design, construction and texture. The gloves are from Marni Grut at Royal Blue and come in many wonderful colors. I am a big fan of gloves in SL and these are great..you will want the fatpack. So see you soon and for details on what I am wearing see below!

First Snow

October 11, 2010

I smell winter coming. Even in the virtual world, furry hats and boots and warm coats are starting to appear. Leluka had some new releases this week and I fell truly, madly, deeply in love with this lumberjack coat. The bell shape that swirls out, the strong plaid fabric and the huge fur collar make it a real winner. I had just bought the fur hat from tram which happens to be a perfect match. The hat comes with and without (as worn here) a bow that ties under your neck. The boots are from DPYumYum. They have been in my closet for a year but..Wow..I think they are the same plaid. \o/   The hair is from BarberYumyum (modded to fit under the hat) and is new. I love the way some of the prim bits in this hair move when you turn your head…so pretty!  The necklace is from Yummy. I have so many of Polyester Partridge’s creations..all of them are so cute…this one is a bunch of charms on a gold chain. ❤  (I think I would buy them just because I love her name.) The skinny wrap belt is an old favorite from Shiny Things. It has a little pouch on it for your virtual money.  More details and landmarks after the cut. Click on any photo for a more detailed, hi-res version.  Keep warm!  Brrrrrrr, Elisabeth   Read the rest of this entry »

Tweedly Me

March 3, 2010

I am so totally loving Aoharu’s tweed jackets and coats. Everything about them..the shapes, the colors and the textures. This short, brown version inspired me to put together a look with another favorite dress that I haven’t worn before—although it has been in my “closet” for a while. OK-I know I am sort of on a brown kick but I love the rich, warm tones in this outfit. AND I love the new hat and hair from Maitreya…could it be be any better? No…’cause it is perfect. Absolutely perfect.  And *yum* the shoes from Annexx …<3!! Gotta love the little bows. To finish it off, I had to use the theatre lady binoculars from LaGyo that you can carry in your hand or wear around your neck. The glasses? All the better to see you with my dear.

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
