Vintage Haze

Hat: Emelia by Wicca’s Wardrobe | Dress: Kaylanie by Sage | Shoes: Deidre by Ghee

Hello Readers!

Round 4 of the FAD Fashion Event is now open and the theme is Vintage Haze.  There are loads of lovely items to choose from. For my first look for this round I chose Wicca’s uniquely crafted Emilia Hat, the sexy mesh body loving Kaylanie lace dress, and the Deidre shoes by Ghee. My friend and sim squatter Nariko commented that I looked ready to go to the opera! A super sexy opera perhaps… 😉

I Want to Hear You Calling My Name

FAD 3_3_001pm

Hello Readers!

I am still in a FRO-TASTIC mood (see this image to see what I mean in case you have no clue what I am talking about) so here I am in a fro the lovely Mecca (apocketfulofbutterflies) reminded me I have always wanted to purchase, Rhythm by Puft. The 3rd round of the FAD Fashion Event is still going so I slipped into this fun romper by LEGENDAIRE called the Lucy Jumpsuit.

FAD 3_3_002pm

It doesn’t come in mesh body sizes, but the standard mesh sizes work well and it has a HUD! I do love HUDs and the increased options they provide. It was so hard to choose between the textures! In the end I chose this one because of the cute lil birdy…it made me think of Twitter! I coupled it with the Raven jewelry from Modern Couture.

FAD 3_3_003pm

The Lucy Jumpsuit has coordinating heels, aptly named the Lucy heels. There was no HUD for these, but look at them, love the straps! Oh and do notice my finely polished nails, those are courtesy of PUMBY who has an awesome assortment of brightly colored polishes for Slink and Maitreya perfectly matched to the theme of Tropical Nights.

I Want To Dance With You

FAD r3 p2_004 pm

Hello Readers!

The FAD Event continues with Tropical Nights and this round speaks to the color lover in me! Today I have on the Ghee Lime Neon Pemplum Mini. It is HUD controlled so you can pick the color of the waist ruffle and belt. Ghee also provided matching nail polish and shoes…

FAD r3 p2_003 pm

The polish is called Neon Mani/Pedi and is only for Slink, which was fine as I am wearing my Lara (when am I NOT these days??) and just popped on my Slink hands and feet to show off this brightly colored polish set that works so nicely with the entire ensemble. The shoes are called Ghee neon Bow Peeps for Slink High feet and are also HUD controlled so they can match perfectly with any of the Ghee Neon dresses.

Completing my FAD Tropical Nights look is a new necklace from Legal Insanity called the Layered Chain necklace, the Tootsie hair from Analog Dog, Madrid Solo‘s Bubble Gloss in Orange Red and Feline Instinct 3 from La Boheme. The pose is another from the latest pose set from KaTink called Portia.

Happy styling,

Tropical Nights Color Pallet 2

I LOVE color, the brighter the better so this round’s offerings are right up my alley!

FAD 3 WW+_001 pm

I am wearing the Alice Hat in purple by Wicca’s Wardrobe and the Joie blouse and pants by *MSS*. My pose is Andrea 1 by KaTink (@ Sneak Peek). But wait, there’s more…

FAD 3 WW+_002 pm

Look at the sexy back on this blouse! I love it! I am wearing my Lara in these photos, so you can see the standard sized mesh fits very nicely over it.

Styling Contest

The styling contest is still in effect this round, so not only should you come on over to check out all the brightly colored goodness, you should pick out a few items for yourself, style ’em up and enter the contest for a bag full of goodies!

Feeling like Flowers

FAD 2 n3 1 pm

Hello Readers!

This is likely my last possible reminder for you that the second round of the FAD Event is about to be done! I was having a delightful chat with Jude Tatham (the event organizer) where she reminded me this round will close up on July 25th. So that means there isn’t much time left to have a look at all the creative designs this round’s creators have in store for you.

I have been on a mesh body kick lately and as I have said before, I was a long time Physique user and recently acquired a Maitreya, and I haven’t taken it off!  Well maybe once for an outfit I couldn’t make work on the Maitreya, but I have to say that is getting to be more rare than it used to be. I finally joined the Maitreya camp when I was in a show for L’Amour as they have recently launched a curvy model division and I knew I had to be a part of that. I was to model in a curvier form, but the designs were surprisingly not made for the Physique. I say surprisingly because I had pretty much encountered most designers do make Slink compatible designs. In this case I took it as a sign that I needed to stop riding the Maitreya fence and just do it. I did and was thrilled until I found my skin tone is so old… (how old is it??) that Deesses no longer makes it. I pouted for about a minute then adopted another skin from Natalie’s store that was -close- to the Silly I know and love. It was alright, but then like a week later Natalie must have read my mind (or a lot of customers got after her lol) and my skin was updated in the new shades! Since then I have barely taken my Maitreya off and always try outfits with it on first to see if it will work (if they don’t already come with a Maitreya size).

Ok so, back to the point of my post. The FAD Event round 2 is nearly over! Being that I rarely take off the fuller, updated, mesh me I found that the Alena Bow Dress by [FLRN] fit quite nicely over my mesh body and I wasn’t even wearing the fitted mesh option. I am actually wearing the medium with some alphas turned off and I really liked the fit. My close friends know I am not a ‘bow’ person, but this dress is just sooo cute and well textured I got over my bow issues. It comes with a HUD (I have said how much I love HUDs right?) that make it a bunch of dresses in one. I had a hard time choosing, but in the end this flower pattern won out.

FAD 2 n3_002 pm

I had to pick up this great hair from Truth called “Lucrecia.” I had to have it for its perfect flower headband and the carefree feeling it added to the look. I added some accessories from MUKA and the latest from Glamistry of course. They have their Ramonda Heels out in a new version for Kustom9, PRINTS! I couldn’t wear any with this look as the animal prints didn’t go with my flower look, but I wore them anyway for their awesome HUDtasticness. Glamistry really goes with EVERYTHING. 😀

I am of course using some more awesomeness from KaTink. The background is Fresh Air 9 and I used the Andrea 5 & 8 poses from the new release available at Sneak Peek.

Money on my Mind

Fad 2 LaVian pm

Hello Readers!

Summer and grad work certainly keep a gal busy!  That aside, I have to remind you all that the 2nd round of the FAD event is still underway and you still have some time to pick up some great fashion like the ensemble above, “Money on my Mind” by LaVian, available as a part of round 2 of the FAD Event. One of the things I really do appreciate about clothing is HUDs and options, LaVian is never short on those. This ensemble is made up of the coat, shirt, shorts, and belt (all in one) and they are ALL color change! So there really is more than just one outfit here.

My pose is Misaki 10 and the background is Tillicum Island 18, both from KaTink.

This round of the FAD event is over soon, so don’t delay. I will have more to show you tomorrow!

Sundae Season Color Pallet

FAD 2 edited pm

I love when items that fit on my Physique are offered and when I opened the FAD offering from Zibska I found just that! She included a fitmesh version of her hud controled flirty romper called “Tina.” There is a subtle shimmer texture on the romper that really calls for a closer look, and really adds to that fun summer feel. I added a necklace from FAD by Secret Love called “Ribbons and Pearls” as well as some delicious hair called ” Pony Shades” from Ashmoot. Oh, and there are the fun sugar coated nail polishes from Pumby, also available at The FAD Event. I of course had to add the latest from Glamistry…a flat sandal called “Columbine.”
