Its Zan’s fault

Zan has been going on and on about the Maitreya gifts at Belle Epoque – so I thought Id better hustle over there and check it out. Wowser super pleased with my little haul for a group joining fee of just $10L ! A whole board of gifts are on offer but I really liked the look of this pink all-in-one look – just the one fit and its Maitreya (Luckily for moi)

Also snapped up this lingerie, it was a Valentines gift as you can prolly tell – but who doesn’t love love LOVE lingerie on any day! Maitreya fit only again.

As Zan suggested I did take a peek at the $10L hunt, and decided just to search out one of the bags (in pink of course) nothing else took my fancy but that’s not to say it wont yours!

Oh Finally !

I’ve been in Second Life for over a decade and one of the things that has always driven my crazy? Necklaces ! Yes I know , seems ridiculous.. but I have never, ever been able to get a good fit on them. Chokers yes – dead simple but necklaces – nope. They either stick out, wont lay flat, vanish into my shoulders,neck or chest. As for long ones – forget it ! Then, along came AvaWay – I was mooching in their store the other day and noticed that a few of the items were designed especially for the Maitreya body – intrigued I bought the one above. Voila! It fitted perfectly, no resizing, no rotating, tilting, dragging about – it fitted , right out of the box.

What is especially lovely is that some of the designs give you a choice of wearing all the strands, 1, 2 or all – so essentially you get several different looks in one piece.

After that initial purchase I did return and bought up almost ALL of the Maitreya rigged items. I even found a belly chain (heavens I’ve really struggled to fit those in the past!) There are also rings, bracelets and more ! Do make sure that you check the item you like is one of those that’s rigged for Maitreya, not all are.

So… I went to the “Darkside”

Id been mulling over getting a new mesh body for a while. I figured I’d stay with Slink and get an Hourglass body. Thought it would be easier seeing as my hands and feet etc are all Slink. Fast forward a week, and Zan decided to go to Hourglass, and I thought perhaps one of us should do a different brand? Zan and I used to call Maitreya “The Dark Side” as we are both Slink devotee’s – but after sampling the demo and seeing how incredibly easy it is to mix and match it with my Slink hands and feet – voila – I am Maitreya Lara alll the way!

To be honest at first I couldn’t really see much difference between Maitreya and Slink Physique. Slightly wider hips, perkier breasts? As I began to take some photos though, it became a little more clearer. The overall shape is softer, I know this will vary according to what shape you wear – but using the same shape on both mesh bodies, yes definitely more feminine.

I think the most difference is in the rear. Really succulent butt and dimples, those wider hips looking more womanly. The neat thing that I wasn’t expecting was I can use my Slink hands and feet with it. I had wrongly presumed Id have to use the Maitreya ones – but if you’re worried about adding more costs – don’t be. They work with it 100%, infact seamlessly. The Hud is a little more intuitive than the Slink one, I really do prefer the accurate way to apply alphas – heaps easier. So Zan and I can share the spoils of our gacha pulls between us – actually, that’s prolly the BEST thing about having different mesh bodies!

Beautiful…for everything

This is the new release from Neve “Jouer” – a beautiful dress in many many colours and patterns. I really like this “tonic” shade (of which there are four varieties) Hmm sort of oil on water style of tone. Plush velvety shades, washed out softer fabrics – something for everyone. You can purchase the new mask alongside the dress, its called “Regarder” and ohmydays, the Hud enables you to play with pre-set colour palettes plus fiddle around with the feathers etc. Perfect for Mardi Gras or Masquerade balls! I teamed it up with the new necklace from Maxi Gossamer called “Juliet’s Love heart” @ Collabor88 – the super fantastic thing is, you get a transferable set included! I passed mine to Zan because I love her to pieces!

A swift look at the rear reveals the gorgeous sweep and fall of the fabric and spaghetti straps. I’ve used the “shine” option from the Hud to get the light shimmery effect. Mesh body fits , demo available at the latest round of TLC. I bought the back drop from Foxcity @ Collabor88, two versions – I plumped for the black and white pack.

Its getting hot in here

Neve - Bonnie Lace (4 colour options included)

Apparently we in England are going to be basking in a heat wave for the next few days – about time! It’s only April but I’m already rummaging in my wardrobes (yes, plural!) in real life to drag out my lighter gear – ohmai – I even went out with toe posters on today! It’s no surprise that over the last few days I’ve seen plenty of new warmer weather items being released, Neve is right on the jolly old button with two new frocks “Jazzy” and “Bonnie”. Bonnie (above) is a bit of a scene stealer to be honest. Its deadly cute and I instantly reached for this version called “lace”. Each variant pack has four colours in the HUD, plus you can fool around and colour the top and skirt separately.

Neve - Jazzy Tropics (4 options included)

This is Jazzy, tulip shaped hemline and in this pack called “tropics” there is a lively floral print all over – a little reminiscent of those 80’s Hawaiian shirts! The cut and fit are exceptional, in both photos I am wearing the items over my Slink Physique Mesh body – no gaps, no break points and no extra HUD alphas required . Both styles have other options for patterns and both come in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Isis & Freya and the Standard Sizes XXS – M. Free demos available in the market place and instore – thanks Neve Team ❤

So so so this is my absolute favourite of the new bunch, “Maroushka” is a complete outfit that’s perfect for the season. Stylish and warm, it will take you anywhere. The pants have a fabulous swirly circle pattern in gold , it really pops out from the black fabric. The jacket is  super on trend, Close fitting, plenty of detailing and the pants pattern extended to the upright collar. Dont forget for the incredible low price of $250L, you also get the booties, these are suitable for Slink high feet,and a traditional foot option. I’m wearing the outfit over my Slink mesh body, it says in the blurb that it will fit the Maitreya body too, plus of course the standard mesh sizes included.

Luxe Paris NEW! Complete outfit with boots, jacket,jeans & top

My second outfit is called “Animal chic” and comprises of the furry jacket, boots, pants and a cropped length shirt. It does say that this is suitable for traditional bodies and the Maitreya one, but it fits perfectly over my Slink mesh body hurrah! (I wear the slim Slink not the new curvier one) Dead easy to wear and a great casual winter look. I really enjoyed the little detail on the front of the pants just below the knees . This whole outfit is on sale for just $250L, a brilliant deal!
