Fashion Flashback- Tres Blah

Hey everyone! I haven't done a Fashion Flashback post in a while so I thought this week would be a good time! The store I want to talk about isn't from the beginning of my SecondLife, but I did discover the creator when I first found out about fashion events. Tres Blah... Simple and Classy.

Outfit: Tres Blah Khaki Blouse Shorts and Boots, Rings: EarthStones Splendid Love Bridal Set and Schadenfreude Fox Wee Beastie, Necklace: Maxi Gossamer Love Surrender, Earrings: EarthStones Thank you! Tahiti Black Pearls, Hair: Truth Oceana, Lipstick: Glam Affair December Extra Lips, Tattoo: Letis Bohemian, Skin: Glam Affair Yolandi, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Elemental16, Slink Hands

I first found Tres Blah at Collabor88--if my memory is correct--Juliette Westerburg released a safari outfit which I thought was precious. The stall had the whole ensemble, boots and all. I loved it, and decided to explore Second Life in my safari gear.

After buying her outfits from Collabor88, I decided to go check out the mainstore and I fell in love with a watercolor dress. I love watercolors and paint splashes on clothes; to me it makes the clothes look more real. I bought the dress, and when my avatar was walking in it, the bottom of the skirt moved with a little bit of a swish. It is hard to explain, and if I knew how to make a gif I would post it, but I don't know how. All I can tell you is this dress is so cute and fun and awesome!

Tres Blah's style is very simple and classy. Nothing too revealing, and it does show some skin it is done with good taste. Tres Blah was one of the first mesh creators I found who had outfits and items which fit my style. Since I have been shopping events and getting my SL shopping addiction Tres Blah has been a regular name on my shopping list. I highly recommend people to check out Tres Blah's mainstore at Collabor88!

Take a moment and check out these new freckles by Stellar! The freckles are subtle and just lovely!

~On a Whim~

Happy Sunday everyone! Really REALLY short post this week, but I wanted to give a bit of information on a new event called Whimsical. It opened on the 18th, and it is very...whimsical.

The Whimsical event was created by people from The Fantasy Collective and The Epiphany Gacha. The whole sim itself is very relaxing and landscaped so well--almost like you can take a nice spring summer stroll around a fresh garden. The vendor stalls fit in so well with the landscape; the whole event looks well put together! Kudos to everyone who had a hand in the landscaping and decorating! Well done! I love when you go to an event and everything looks nice and is easy to navigate. (There are also maps placed around the landing point so you can easily find where all the designers/creators have set up.

Hair: NEW Truth Henya @Whimsical, Necklace: ERSCH Stellation 9 Pisces @Whimsical, Crown/Starband: ERSCH: Stellation 16 RARE @Whimsical, Body: Maitreya Lara, Skin: Glam Affair December, Eyes: IKON Charm Emerald and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Teeth: Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

I didn't buy any clothing items for my avatar at the event, however I did like some accessories, especially these constellation necklaces by ERSCH. I am a huge lover of the stars. I remember when I was younger going outside late at night with my father and finding all the constellations and looking for shooting stars. And even now, being a real and hard working adult I am, I still find myself looking at the same constellations and STILL I am in awe. The necklaces come in a gacha, so you can not buy the specific constellation you want, but you could get these really cool tiaras (they are the rares). Just an FYI:  there is one box in the gacha which is mislabeled. If you are a gemini, your item is #4, and when you open the box for #4 it will say Virgo. IT IS NOT VIRGO; I think the creator got the item names mixed up. #2 is Virgo and #4 is Gemini.

Truth is also at the event with a fun new hair called Henya. There is an optional  headband and feather add on which is really cool. I would of loved if there was a peacock feather option, but there are some nice color choices. Also you can add on a whisp of hair at your bangs, and also hair covering your front. In the picture above I have on only the whisp and the front hair attachment.

There are of course lots, and I do mean LOTS, of other really cool items and creations--I was just interested in the constellation necklaces and the hair by Truth. The event will be open till March 3rd, so go on over to Whimsical and take a look around. Even if you don't buy anything, it is still a lovely walk.

Let's be whimsical together!!!!! xoxo

Rose Tea for a Romantic Valentine's Day

HAPPY Valentine's Day! I am sorry I haven't posted the past two weeks. Life has been super hectic.. I haven't had much to post on anyway, due to the new events for the month being so-so in my opinion. FaMESHed didn't have much I was liking, nor Uber. But Collabor88 opened last Monday-and I went a bit crazy.

Dress: Zaara Thalia Draped Gown @Collabor88, Hair: Truth Kasimire Blondes with hairpiece [former Epiphany Gacha], Maitreya Lara Mesh Body, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Whatever Mesh Teeth, Skin: Glam Affair Sasha @Collabor88, Lipgloss: Glam Affair Romy Goddess

Collabor88's theme is Espionage, so lots of spy items and sexy Bond Girl/Secret Agent attire. It is also Collabor88's prom (the designers/creators have asked other creators to be their dates)So there is almost twice as many items! Let me just gush about some of my favorites...

Zaara of course is my favorite. She has a new gown released for the event. It is more expensive..ish... 588L for the event. And it is so worth every penny. The gown is made specifically for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and it comes in fun colors. I like the cut in the bust. The cleavage goes down to the naval, and the cut gives it a bit of a more modern edge, but not too drastic. It really is a classy gown.

Outfit: The Secret Store Honey Cotton Shirt and Peggy Pleated Skirt @Collabor88, Hair: Truth Sicily, Shoes: Poute Victoria High Heels, Necklace: CAE Belle's Rose, Ring: CAE Belle Ring, Earrings: Aisling Roz, Familiar/Pet: Alchemy Hell Pupper Held @The Fantasy Gacha, Skin: Glam Affair Sasha @Collabor88, Lipgloss: Glam Affair Romy Goddess, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

The Secret Store has a fun shirt/skirt combo out for the event. And it reminds me of Miss Moneypenny from the Bond movies. Not really a sexy outfit, but very sophisticated and simple. Still attractive. I bought the kiss patterned blouse and the red skirt, because Valentine's Day is.....right now. When I was putting the outfit together, I wanted to keep it simple, so I have it paired with a simple rose necklace by CAE in gold with some rose earrings. As I was putting the outfit together I wanted to add one small "flair" piece to I added a familiar/pet by Alchemy which is out right now at The Fantasy Gacha. The Hell Pupper is so cute and even though Cerberus is supposed to be vicious, this little puppy is too cute--it will just melt your heart.

Outfit: Foxes Bound Dress, Harness, and Jacket @Collabor88, Hair: Oleander! Taffy @Collabor88, Headset: Amala Spy Headset @Collabor88, Maitreya Mesh Body, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Skin: Glam Affair Sasha @Collabor88, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

Foxes has a fun dress out with a sort of binding at the neck and bust. There is a leather jacket as well at the event which pairs well with the dress. The outfit reminds me of a spy doing a sort of wardrobe change/strip while in the middle of a mission. Amala even has a cool spy headset which helps bring the look together. This whole outfit (minus the Amala headset) is made exclusively for mesh bodies. Make sure you try the demo before you buy.

Erratic has a very sexy bikini out this round which just looks like it came straight from a beach scene in a James Bond movie. It is just perfect! I had such a hard time picking out a color, because I wanted all of them. The detail is perfect. AND it comes with these cool cuffs so the bikini looks more....Badass. There is also a medal change hud for the belt buckle and the cuffs on the bikini. The bikini is made exclusively for Maitreya Lara mesh body.

Bikini: Erratic Eunice with Cuffs @Collabor88, Hair: Oleander! Taffy @Collabor88, Maitreya Lara Mesh Body, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Skin: Glam Affair Sasha @Collabor88, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

There are other really cool items at the event, Oleander has a hair out which is very neat. I am a sucker for curly hair and braids. While the hairstyle isn't curly, it does have a braid in the ponytail. There are also cute headbands and some lace masks. Olive hair was invited, and the hairstyles (both for men and women) have fedoras. I did not demo the hair to see if the hair comes with a fedoraless option...I am not a big fedora person. There are some sexy short dresses and lots of heels and boots. There are even a few items for men (few, not a lot). I think you should go check it out and see what the creators and their dates have done for the world of Espionage~

I hope all my Tea Readers have a wonderful Valentine's Day! I hope you enjoy the day with your loved ones, and if you don't have a significant other I hope you spoil yourself to something wonderful! You deserve it! Hugs and Smooches~~
