I got a bit braver this weekend playing with PhotoShop... I decided to work with textures! I've seen a lot of other people do it with their photos and wanted to try it myself, but as I have stated many times, PhotoShop makes me nervous. I would love to take at least one formal course dedicated specifically to the software, but for now, I will just have to keep working with YouTube tutorials. Adding the texture to the photo was a lot easier than what I thought it was going to be; the difficult part was finding one that I liked.
As soon as I saw the new mesh top, titled Sanya Draped, from Zaara at FaMESHed, I knew I had to have it! The flow of the shirt is absolutely stunning and the texture is so beautiful. The top is available in twelve colors which can be purchased individually, in packs of 'gold' or 'silver' or as a fatpack. Five sizes and two alpha layers are included, and a free demo is available.
I purchased my first pair of Maitreya mesh jeans to go with this outfit, and I must say that I am deeply in love! They are a bit expensive for a pair of jeans (coming in at 420L per pair), but I don't regret spending the extra lindens on them because they are well worth it. The shape is absolutely beautiful and the texture is amazing. Even though you cannot see it in either of my pictures, my hinny looks amazing! Your purchase includes twelve sizes and an alpha layer; you can purchase the jeans individually or in a fatpack for 1750L which is an excellent price for all eight colors (you save 1610L total). A free demo is available.
I'll be the first to admit that when it comes to accessorizing, I tend to stick with a necklace and some earrings. I've never really bothered with nails before because I'm a little OCD when it comes to fitting them. The nails from Izzie's are absolutely fool proof; simply size your hand to 5, 10, 15 or 20 and attach the appropriate nail size. Don't panic if it doesn't look like they fit correctly when you are on your pose stand; as soon as you hop off, everything lines up just right. The Metal Stripe nails are just one of three sets released by Izzie's this weekend. This set includes thirty-four colors which are changeable via a HUD, scripted and unscripted versions, four sizes and thirteen modifiable nail bases on the gloves layer. The nail bases work perfectly with Izzie's skins... I really love that convenience! I loved how well the color of these nails matched up with the top from Zaara; I actually had a difficult time finding a pose to show the nails off because the pink portion of the nails was blending so well with the top. These are a definite must have for any wardrobe!
