I hope you have all had an amazing weekend. This is the first time I have had a chance to make any photos for my blog in two weeks, and I must say that I have really missed it. I have a lot of fun putting outfits together and finding the perfect spot to take a snapshot. My husband and I spent the weekend at my mother's house last week, and unfortunately I cannot pack up my desktop and take it with me for photos. Spending some time away from the computer is definitely nice, but I always end up missing Second Life no matter how long I've been away. It's kind of like home... You enjoy going on vacation every now and then, but you always want to go home eventually!
I'm honestly not sure how new the top I'm wearing from Ducknipple is. I spotted it while checking out the designer's new releases and really liked it. If you have never visited this store, you may want to pencil it into your schedule sometime in the near future. Almost all mesh items include a color change HUD; it's like purchasing a fatpack for the price of one regular item. The Leather Jacket w/Top that I'm wearing includes twelve color options for the jacket and twelve color options for the top; this gives you a total of one hundred and forty-four possible color combinations. A free demo is available.
I picked the jeans that I'm wearing up from Cracked Mirror at FaMESHed. I really love the shape of these pants and the fact that there isn't a huge gap in the crotch which seems to be a fashion epidemic lately. I've never had that problem with this designer, however. The Disclaimer Skinny Jeans are available in five colors and include five mesh sizes and a modifiable alpha layer. It's rare for me to find jeans that I really like in Second Life; so, when I do... I stock up. The texture on these jeans is fabulous; it contains enough realism to be credible with enough artistry to properly fit in world. Although my tush isn't photoed, the butt of jeans really makes it or breaks it for me. The pockets have to look good and the shape (with mesh) has to be nice and round. These jeans score on all points! If you want to try them out for yourself, a free demo is available.
I have to admit that I haven't always been the biggest fan of hair by Exile. His styles have always been pretty, but I thought the tips of the hair were way too pointy. That problem, however, seems to be a thing of the past. I spotted his new releases this weekend and instantly fell in love with Crazy in Love. This hairstyle is so dramatic! The volume is fantastic, the textures are beautiful and best of all... there are no pointy tips! The hair is available in thirteen color packs, and a free demo is available.
A new skin was recently released by Izzie's titled Harlow. I love the soft but classy and chic look of this skin. Harlow is available in eight skin tones and includes a modifiable body shape, freckles options, moles options, four brow colors (excluding the mocha skin tone), cleavage options, a nail base, twelve lipstick colors, twelve eyeshadow colors and a brow shape. I particularly like the eyeshadows included with this skin; they are very shiny and shimmery. A free demo is available.
