Poppycock

Spring fever has me in its grip…and Ive got more newness to show you. This time from Arisaris..”Chloe” is a simple yet detailed mesh skirt and matching prim shirt. Very very light green & beige background with a smattering of poppies across. There’s also a belt to complete the look, nice tassle detail !  The skirt comes in size S through to XL..so you should be able to find a great fit. My jacket is by coldLogic, and if you don’t know by now – (because lately I’m alwaysss wearing it!)- it’s called “cole” and is one of my essential wardrobe pieces ! Chloe is on special promotion (not sure for how long) at just 190L..grab it while its hot ! Thanks Ariadne xx

Pack some punch into your Spring wardrobe

I have some spring-ga-lee new releases to show you from coldLogic ! Spring is such a hopeful month..all the outdoorsy growth…warmer days…and heapsss of new gear from all the SecondLife designers ! coldLogic’s sewing machines must be smokin…cause this latest release is just huuuuge…and it made me want to get out & about and dance in the streets..now listen up..the newness is gonna be your “staples”…and by that I mean…youre going to wear..and wear..and wear these items…useful..hardworking…and soooper easy to mix in with almost anything…that’s one of the fantastic things about mesh..layering…and that’s one of the things I adore the team at coldLogic for..they make it so easy to do. With colour palettes running throughout the store… and lashings of separates , so you can build youre own individual style…embrace the mesh ! Above Ive tossed on my indispensible “cole” mesh jacket  (with all the colours you’ll never get tired of it), over the new “ellis” top in coffee…then slipped on one of the new mesh skirts “smith”, in pink. (yes it’s not glaringly pink..and I LOVE that subtlety). The tops come in single-pringles..as do the skirts…but for a really fahhbulous deal, pony up for a quantum pack. Ellis tops 150L singles, quantum pack for five- 500L (that’s a massive saving of uhm..ummm…*uses fingers* 250L !) Smith skirt – 200L singles, quantum pack of five 675L..

Looking ahead to the Easter break..I had to try on the new “adams” skirt in a tiny rainbow of springy hues..gentle colours…add to it one of the “weiss” tanks with a light self stripe…all of the latest releases have little differences in the fabrics used..the weiss Id say is more of a day wear item..think to summer and wearing it with shorts and capris..or those long boho skirts…also cute under some of the mesh shirts for added interest..the skirt is a whole other story…sweet enough for the day time…but the beautifully shaped hemline lends itself to the evening also..check out the full range of colours..weiss – singles 150l, quantum pack of five 500L. adams skirt singles 200L, quantum pack of five 675L.

Next up a different shade for the smith skirt – sand…worn with another new item the “lauren” tee..heavier threads on this than the others…and again..great alone or slide it on under a shirt/jacket..I wanted to show you the back of this skirt…and how cleverly its made to look as if its swirllllingg…its sorta flippy…and chic…(can you guess its my favourrrite yet? !) lauren top singles 150L, quantum pack of five 500…

Something different for me…I tend to gravitate to the more neutral colours..but but but ! I saw the “coyle” skirt..and fell in love with its blocks of bold colour..see what I mean about how they make it easy for you to mix it up? The skirt has three sections of colour..pick one..any one… and go for it with the tee’s ! The coral trim on the skirt was begging to be tied in..so I plumped for the “ellis” top in a mouthwatering coral tone..voila! coyle skirt singles 200L, quantum pack of five 675L..

Finally for today..another new mixtastic tee “tebbets”, lovely weave on the fabric…thin straps which would also lend to wearing under a shirt or with a slightly dressier skirt…and yuppp, I wore it with anotherrrrr shade of the *smith* skirt *grins*…this time in cotton, which if you’re looking for the     do-everything-shade…this is it. I did pop into coldLogic earlier today..well..squeeezed in would be more like it…so busy! Stock up on your essentials…grab some demos…and play! Thanks coldLogic team ❤

Menswear Fashion Week

Menswear Fashion Week is in full swing and I have to say, it’s pretty awesome to have an event for us guys to mooch around. Speaking of mooching, yours truly has walked the circuit once or twice (maybe three or four times) and there are many, many amazing stores with stalls down there packed with some great goodies.

SF Design has one such stall with a couple of new release items out for you to grab. The first of these is called the ‘Ewan’ outfit and it is wicked. Ultra hip, this ensemble features a gorgeous suede jacket, plaid pants and a mesh tee. I love the look of the jacket in any of the three colours available (brown, blue or grey), I’ll definitely be wearing this a lot, either with the outfit as a whole or just by itself. The sculpted cuffs, collar and lapel all fit perfectly and the texturing is divine.

The mesh tee that comes with the Ewan outfit, as you can see, looks brilliant worn without the jacket and trust me when I tell you, I never thought that I would be saying that about a mesh t-shirt, like, ever. This tee can be worn tucked in or, if you have a viewer that allows multiple layers, you can wear it out with the pants layer.

SF Design also have this super mesh sweater and shirt combo in blue or black. This is an extremely preppy little combination that I like a lot. You’ll need a mesh enabled viewer to see these but it’s definitely worth it. The mesh comes in two sizes and I had no problem at all fitting into it. Definitely a very cool item that can be worn in any number of situations.

There are also some gifts dotted about MFW if you keep your eyes peeled. Gifts like this funky ‘Wake Up!’ shirt from FA Creations.  Basic black with sculpted sleeves, a perfect casual top. My favourite part about this shirt (other than the fact that it was free) is the sculpted bottom that comes with its own belt, it’s very well made and adds to the effect of the shirt. The tattoo you can see peeking out from the sleeves is a gift from *Birth* and comes on all different layers and in different levels of darkness (I went with the light shade for this pic). I’ve kept it on to show it off properly in the next picture below as well.

Last but not least, the ever amazing Akeruka have a stall at Menswear Fashion Week also. Many of their great skins are available there to buy, including this special version of ‘Damien’. Pale with dark lips teamed with the usual fantastic looking details, this is a tremendous skin for those of you who like to roleplay or to those of you who just like that child of the night look.

On a final note, the sunglasses you see me wearing in these last two pictures are a new release from Redgrave that you can also pick up at the MFW event. I fell in love with these ‘Zenith’ glasses the moment I saw them, they are colour changeable and look simply stunning. I was fortunate that my wonderfully generous partner bought them for me and thought I’d show them off (thanks bunches Roni x).

So there you have it, absolutely shedloads of amazing gear you can find at Menswear Fashion Week. This is but a small sampling. Head on down before the end of this week and take a long, leisurely stroll around and I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll love.

It’s a lil bit punky…and lot hot…very cool leather look fabric…with slashes of colour…you get five choices of size, and sex er, I mean SIX choices of colours *grins*…

What I sooper love is that you can also snap up some hot-to-trot add ons for it…just to complete the look… a whole range of these accessories that you can mix-n-match and fool around with…huge ring…that despite its size is actually really an intricate design…the co-ordinating necklace (with attachment point options and resizer script in one version) plusssssss a darling mesh clutch purse *swoon*..I grabbed up one in hot pink..but you’ll find a heap of other shades plus some that would pep up any outfit with Hawaii inspired flowers. The clutch has some sweet poses all built-in – nice touch !…they wont set you back oooodles of cash either hoooray! (think around 60L price line for the jewels)
