Let's All Have Some Verbena

Happy Sunday! I hope this week has been a positive one for everyone, and all my Tea Readers have been safe. On with this week's Second Life Fashion.

Outfit: Foxes Woodland Wonderland Peacoat Dress and Ear Muffs, Skates w/ Warmers: N-Core Skates @Kustom9, Hair: NEW Truth, Amoret, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Skin: Glam Affair December, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

Kustom9 opened last Sunday, and unfortunately I was not drawn to any of the items. I saw a few items for friends, but for myself...nothing really jumped at me. I will say I did buy some skates from N-Core which double as ice skates and roller skates. If you want to check out some of the items at Kustom9, click this link to Seraphim's Gallery of all the items and prices for this round. Even though I was a tad disappointed at Kustom9, something even better was purchased on Sunday because guess who had a late set-up at Collabor88?

ZAARA! OMG! My SL designer crush. She has this cool tunic which is fitted specifically for the Maitreya Mesh Lara Body. She has not done any standard sizes and it will not work with other mesh bodies...I don't think. I can't really test it with other bodies since I only have the Maitreya body. There are both sheer and solid versions when you purchase your color. I have been wearing both around. Everywhere. I LOVE IT! Of course I doubt Zaara could create something I dislike. I have been wearing the plain white tunic with some mermaid leggings by ISON and some simple black booties by I have also been wearing the nude floral print tunic in the sheer, but I won't show those pictures. Got to keep this blog classy~

Some English Breakfast

Happy Sunday everyone! I feel a winter chill in the air, yet it still feels like Autumn just started. This new round at Collabor88 is a perfect "warm-up" for this coming winter. The theme is Autumn Blues.

Sweater and Shirt: Tres Blah Strappy Cami and Catby Shrug @Collabor88, Jeans: Tres Blah Grace Cropped Jeans, Hair: Little Bones Hello @Collabor88, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Necklace Autumn Fox @Collabor88, Boots: N-Core Winter Boots, Skin: Glam Affair Amberly Lovely Day, Eyes: IKON Charm eyes and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands

Autumn Blues makes me think of well....sadness and depression; Collabor88's Autumn Blues is everything but. Lots of cool and dark colors, but everything looks so warm and comfortable. When I went last Sunday I was cuddled up on my sofa with a thick blanket wearing an over-sized sweater. It just felt perfect. There are sweaters and scarves and boots and so much more!! Tres Blah has a fun sweater/camisole set out. In the promo picture the set is paired with shorts, but I pulled out some skinny jeans Tres Blah released not too long ago. Perfect casual attire for shopping or hanging out with friends.

Another outfit I really like is by The Secret Store. The dress is paired with a sweater and I like the attached leather belt. I went a bit different with it than I was originally planning. When I was picking out my colors, I was going to go for the sky blue cardigan, but I ended up being really drawn to the mauve color. I still went with the white dress. It took me a while to pair the outfit with the right shoes, but I made it work. Maxi Gossamer also has a few necklaces out, but the one I bought (and I think this will be my new favorite go to necklace) is a vial with some leaves and a cute chibi fox inside. I ADORE IT. Simply adore. I love foxes and this necklace is so cute. We need more pretty fox jewelry in our lives, both First and Second. Just my opinion.

Outfit: The Secret Store Annabelle Dress and Leonie Cardigan @Collabor88, Hair: Elikatira Estelle, Bracelet: CAE Wanderlust London, Shoes: *Your Skin & Your Shape* Rapallo Chic, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Skin: Glam Affair Amberly Skin Lovely Day, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet

Now onto my favorite buy. There is a sweater by Erratic which is exclusively for the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body...and I LOVE IT! So much. There is a lace underlay, and you can change the color of the lace or hide the lace depending on how you want to pair it. The sweater is over-sized, and I am sure you already know by now how much I love comfy sweaters. Erratic does have some packs of leggings to go with the sweater, and you get quite a few colors in a pack, but for 388L$ I could not justify buying the leggings when I have plenty other leggings I could use. Turns out I didn't end up wearing leggings with it at all; ISON released these fun boots with some sock add-ons. I think the boots with the sweater look amazing--like they were made for each other.

Outfit: Erratic Shannon Sweater @Collabor88, Shoes: ISON Leather Knee Boots @Collabor88, Hair: NEW Truth Vienna, Scarf: Plastik Bitter Chill Braided @Collabor88, Earrings: Earthstones Madison Pearl Earrings, Skin: Glam Affair Caroline @Uber, Eyes: IKON Charm and Natural6 Lashes, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth, Maitreya Mesh Body Lara

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of their weekend, and a great week! Enjoy the crisp Autumn air, have some hot tea, and please take some time out and go check out Collabor88.

Chai Karak to Stay Calm

Hey Tea Readers! I know this week's post is early, but I have a crazy weekend planned--my best friend is getting married and since I am the wedding planner, well....I have my hands full. I have recently been trying to keep my posts short and sweet, so hopefully this week's post keeps with the others.

Outfit: Baiastice Cara Dress in Sheer @FaMESHed, Hair: NEW Truth Morgana, Lipstick: Glam Affair Romy Goddess, Skin: Glam Affair Katra Ballerina, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands

FaMESHed opened on Sunday for November, and I didn't go crazy, but I did buy two cute outfits! Baiastice has a really pretty, almost period type, dress which I LOVE! The dress comes in two different versions, sheer and non-sheer. I prefer the sheer version, but I have long hair in the front covering my breasts, so no flashing from me. I like a bit of an edge and I feel the sheer does give it a bit of an edge.

The other outfit is by Rebel Hope, and it is a cardigan/shirt and skirt combo. You pick your pieces and thankfully the cardigan comes with a hud to change the shirt textures so you can add come color to go with your accessories. I love the red/white color combination, so guess which combo I purchased? Red and White. Which is kind of funny because the wedding this weekend, it's color is navy and white.

Outfit: Rebel Hope Katina Mesh Skirt and Sonoma Mesh Cardigan @FaMESHed, Hair: NEW Truth Morgana, Shoes: Marsali Flats, Necklaces: Maxi Gossamer Heart and Skull Jewelled, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Nose Ring: Yummy Diamond Flower, Lipstick: Glam Affair Romy Goddess, Skin: Glam Affair Katra Ballerina, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and weekend! Send out positive thoughts for my bestie and for me. I am just hoping everything goes as smooth as possible and I will actually be able to enjoy the wedding and reception. Cheers~

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos! I hope everyone's weekend has been a lot of fun. I also hope everyone had fun dressing up for the holiday! I dressed like Jack the Ripper this year. And let me tell you, my costume was EPIC! I had mutton chops and everything!!! Since Halloween is over, people can now fully enjoy the Autumn season, which has been gorgeous.

 Outfit: Erratic Ava Sweater and Meg Leggings @Uber, Hair: Olive Hair Vana @Uber, Nose Ring: Yummy Diamond Flower Nose Ring, Earrings: Yummy Double Diamond Studs, Necklace: Yummy Shining Crystal Necklace, Headband: Zenith Happy Halloween Headband, Shoes: Pure Poison Ingrid Pumps, Skin: Glam Affair Caroline @Uber, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Maitreya Mesh Body Lara, Whatever Fang Mesh Teet

Uber opened last weekend and the theme is Pumpkin Spice....LOVE! All the items have fall colors and are just amazing. I had to set a spending limit for this round, because if I did not set a limit I would buy all the items...All the items...

Erratic has a sweater legging combo exclusively for the Maitreya Mesh Body. I love the textures on the sweater. It looks like wool and I love it. Just LOVE. ISON has a fun poncho out for the event as well and the texture options to pick from are fun. Fashionably Dead has a cute dress and sweater combo, and the combo just reminds me of when I have the windows open on a crisp Autumn day and have the kettle on. It looks like something I would wear while bundling up on the sofa with a throw-blanket. Just deliciously wonderful. Reign has some really cool moccasins, and Emery has a shirt which reminds me of Coco Chanel with the simple colors and stripes-and as I have mentioned before, I am a sucker for Coco Chanel. Zenith has a wonderful dress which has a hud to change the texture of the skirt and the leather belt. I always love it when creators include huds to change textures. It gives you so much more options, like buying a fatpack...except not.... You know what I mean.

Outfit: Emery Ambrosio Flared Jeans with Apache Striped Top @Uber, Hair: NEW Truth Foxy without Hat @Uber, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Wedding Ring, Shoes: Rebel Gal Starry-Eyed Leather Boots (not shown), Skin: Glam Affair Caroline @Uber, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Mesh Teet

I don't often talk about the hairs I am wearing but for the Pumpkin Spice round, I feel I have to. Truth's hair is just...Adorable! Just Adorable!!! It comes with a hat option, and the hat is a fox! You can even change the fox's colors with a hud. I ADORE IT!! And I am not often one for hats. Olive also has a cute side braid and I am a complete sucker for braids. Due has a cute hair as well, again it is a side braid, but it reminded me too much of Truth's Ishya. Still really cute.

Outfit: Zenith Sweater with Skirt @Uber, Hair: NEW Truth Foxy w/Hat @Uber, Necklace: CAE Juno, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Wedding Ring, Shoes: Reign Moccasins @Uber, Skin: Glam Affair Caroline @Uber, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

Sort of short post again this week, but I just really hope everyone has enjoyed Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. Remember to pay your respects to your ancestors and don't forget--pour yourself a cuppa.
