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.

Going to Kowloon

April 3, 2010

Lately I’ve been in an exploring mood and I keep coming across the most amazing places. Kowloon is not a new sim and many of you probably know it since it is popular with photographers, but I didn’t. I enjoyed snooping around the nooks and crannies and taking a few pictures there as well. Kowloon sim is based on a walled city in China that existed until it was demolished in 1993.

(From Wikipedia) Kowloon Walled City was a Chinese military fort in Kowloon, Hong Kong, which became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to Britain in 1898. Following Japanese occupation during World War II, the Walled City developed into an extremely dense, largely ungoverned urban settlement. From the 1950s through the 1970s, it was controlled by Triads and had high rates of prostitution, gambling, and drug use. In 1987, the Walled City contained 33,000 residents within its 6.5-acre (0.03 km2; 0.01 sq mi) borders.

In January 1987, the Hong Kong government announced plans to demolish the Walled City. After an arduous eviction process, demolition began in March 1993 and was completed in April 1994. Kowloon Walled City Park opened in December 1995 and occupies the area of the former Walled City. Some historical artifacts from the Walled City, including its yamen building and remnants of its South Gate, have been preserved there.

My outfit was built around the Lelutka gift hair that came out this week. It is not the usual “pretty” hair, but I think it is a lot of fun and couldn’t wait to put something together to wear with it. The other thing new shown here is the fantastic pair of shorts from LG Boutique. I love the shape of these and the pattern is great too. You will certainly see them again in another styling.  Details and landmarks after the cut. See ya, Elisabeth

Wrapping it up

November 12, 2009

LeeZu1

LeeZu2I know you have seen this LeeZu top before as it is certainly not new and has been blogged many times. I am even wearing some really old pants from Last Call! But I really liked this outfit… so I decided to do a quick post…. The new things ( at least to me ) are the fabulous Cleo skin from Dutch Touch, the Maitreya hair and scarf and the brooch from LaGyo.  The messenger bag from Musim I’ve had since October but…oh…I really love it. I don’t want to admit to how many purses and bags I have in my virtual closet but suffice it to say…A LOT! And this really is one of the best. It’s beautifully made and comes with several poses—and good poses included with a purse make a huge difference as far as I am concerned. If you are just taking pictures you can do adjust the bag however you like, but if you want to walk around holding the purse and have it look good, you need the right poses that actually fit the bag. Of course we expect top quality from Musim and this bag is one example of how they do deliver. The Maitreya scarf—which actually comes in two parts—is fantastic. You can buy it with the hair already attached or if you are comfortable with modifying hair, you can use your own hair and just make it fit under the scarf. Whichever way you go, it is fantastic. Trés chic.  Finally I want to say that the brooch is really amazing. LaGyo is making some of the most interesting jewelry on the grid now…everytime I go in there I end buying something. So a warning, if you don’t want to spend lindens…don’t go!  🙂
Got to run….

Oh My!! Ohmai!

August 2, 2009

OhMy Ohmai!

Anya Ohmai has just released the first pieces of her new clothing line and they are really super. I was so excited to see this cute military style jacket and couldn’t wait to put together an outfit with it. It comes in 4 colors but since I am partial to brown,  I decided to start with that!  The jacket has gold braid, a prim collar and prim puffy sleeves…. and the cutest prim buttons running down the front. I wore it over Malt’s Willow tunic ’cause the colors and the shape seemed so perfect. I wanted tight leggings and you can’t go wrong with Maiiki’s. They are so shiny and have the just right scrunchy bits around the ankles. The necklace is from Malt too and I was able to color the pearls to match the tunic. (Yay for being able to change the texture color!)  I wanted a hat with this and Lamb’s hair with a beret that is also “colorable” was great.  Paulina Kaestner’s French bag had the right casual look  and the color was right on.

OhMy Ohmai

So to Anya….”Go girl!” And congratulations on a great start running start…I can’t wait for all the goodies that I know she will be making.  By the way she is doing hair too along with clothing and I heard she already has a shop open at Creator’s pavilion so tp over there and check it out!! I’m going right now…

See ya,
Elisabeth

To Boho or not to Boho….

February 16, 2009

…that is the question. I was so excited to see Maitreya’s new releases and raced down to see all the yummy newness. I really loved the new sculpted tops and belts and finally chose which colors to bring home. My first inclination was to go Boho and I quickly put together the first look.  I originally thought I would use the batik version for the Boho look but as it turned out once I started working with the batik top a totally different, definitely non-Boho version was the outcome. I liked them both and so I share them with you…hope you like them too!

Biker Chick Chic

January 31, 2009

These boots from Redgrave are biker chick heaven.  So…I had to put together a little biker action outfit. The tee-shirt from Giano has been sitting in my inventory for a while and I rediscovered it today. Love, love, love the design on the back. The leather Armidi Military Coat is the result of my shopping frenzy at the Armidi website the other day. Oh…and the belt by Coco is one of the best I have seen in sl. Beautifully textured and it fit me perfectly with no modding! Once I got this on I actually went out and bought a bike….can’t wait to roar around on it.

Rawr!

TGIF

bp-coat-and-yumyum-shorts

sltgifYes, it is Friday and not a minute too soon…..what a week. So I felt like wearing something really soft and comfy….and I had to go shopping the grid for a Christmas tree and wanted to be warm and still stylish. I started out yesterday…Ok, so it wasn’t yet Friday… wearing the little fur-trimmed, cuffed plaid shorts from DP Yumyum with one of my favorite new coats from BettiePage Voyager. (I love the grey toggles with red leather closings!)   If I can’t wear jewelry I usually opt for a scarf or muffler  so I found this one from OZ in my closet. And these earmuffs (!) are so cute and fluffy I love to wear them…and best of all they were a free group gift from Boon.

After running all over the grid checking out trees, I happened to go to Kurotsubaki (well a girl has to shop) and I found this cute skirt. I loved it with the BP coat ….but I also wanted to put together something with it to wear inside….without coat. I remembered this super cute sweatshirt from Untone quilt (also a free gift which you can find outside of the main store). Under it I am wearing a turtleneck sweater from Kurotsubaki. I changed purses for the second outfit..I thought the little brown purse from plod was just perfect for this look. Plus I love the acorns that fall out of the bag all the time you are wearing it. Anyway, I liked the way it came together. Hope you do too.

See ya, Elisabeth
