Look of the Day : An Afternoon in Shades of Grey

Just a quick post for a look I loved that I threw together a few days back when my significant other decided to whisk me off dancing one afternoon.

LOTD

One of my all time favorite mesh skirts is from The Secret Store, I love its great fit and shaping. I paired it with this shirt from Amarelo Manga. I’m new to Amarelo Manga and am loving their clothes so you’ll be seeing more here I’m sure, and this shirt is one of my faves I know I’ll be wearing often, both with skirts and jeans. Maxi Gossamer and Bamboo Nails never fail to complete my looks, and Elikatira hair often finds it’s way to my head, much as this recent one has.

Top of the World

Now, time for more shopping, so many sales on this weekend, and so much to catch up on yet for photos, purchases and gifts from Valentine’s weekend, I’ll be keeping busy for weeks I’m sure! *Waves a Farewell for now and goes off to sort thru the piles*

New Releases : Dancing with Emma from Entre Mares

Entre Mares has released a stunning new gown, Emma, that will be sure to heat up your cold winter nights when you go out (or stay in) dancing.

EM Emma Full

If you have a special date night coming up and you want to turn the heat up and aren’t sure what to wear, head on over to Entre Mares, you’re sure to find something there that will be just perfect for your evening. The new Emma will certainly fit that order, it is available in blue as shown, as well as a black, purple and yellow. It is lacy and delicate, and yes, it does cover all the necessary parts that need covering. The bits and parts are all well made, and the flex is just right for twirling on the dance floor.

EM Emma Couple

For my night out with my special man, I chose a favorite updo from Truth, and a favorite pair of heels from N-Core. I also chose a favorite diamond set from Alyssa Bijoux, always a great classic to wear on any formal occasion. Add to that, my most fave nails, from Bamboo, in a silvery color to match my shoes and jewelry, and I am good to go be dazzling on the arms of my dazzling man.

EM Emma Dance

Now, no more delay, rush over and grab this gown and the other things, and ..I’m off to do some more blogging and dancing, see you soon!!!

Look of the Day – Ilaya, Bamboo Nails and Maxi Gossamer

We are well in to the New Year, and it’s high time I do some blogging.  A few things have me excited that I want to blog about, including this look, inspired by the recent weather…icey! Watch for post coming up devoted to this amazing skin by Sachi!!!, but for today however, I want to talk about other things.

Catty

Ilaya has made this very fun dress, with a bit of retro feel, in mesh, and I love it.  It comes in a few other shades too, and definitely worth grabbing for your closet. I like the monotone look, great to mix and match with various things.   Maxi Gossamer just keeps on creating more jewelry we all must have.  For this look, I chose the bangles which are available at the current round of Collabor88, and the earrings, are part of a set from the current FaMESHed, which ends soon so hurry on over and get them while you can. I also want to mention these prim nails, from Bamboo Nails. I simply love them!  They are the most easy-to-apply-and-adjust system I have come across yet. With the Hud, you can change both size and length, as well as colors , based on which set you have of course.  These nails are definitly worth a try whether you have been avoiding prim nails, or love them.

Catty

One can never have enough poses, and these used here are new from Ovation Poses.   I simply threw them in my main Tillie’s stand, and they are good to go.  Well, that’s it for this time, now back to more shopping and wandering and dancing!  Stay Warm!

To Elate, or not To Elate!

The answer…simply is….to Elate!!
I always look forward to Friday in SL, a day a few new sale items appear at different places. Today did not disappoint. Elate delighted me with a new dress, and new earrings! Both which I had to grab up immediately and do a quick (by Catty standards, that means published by Monday) post.

Elate

Mesh clothing is gradually taking hold of me, and this new dress Kellie Iwish has out has been added to my list of must have mesh. It’s cute and fits so well, perfect for fall days. The alpha layer needs a tad of adjusting for my shape, but it does come with 3 options too for that so hopefully you’ll find one that works for your shape. I love the earrings too that Kellie also has out new, I am sure they will be very well worn in the future, I love a big hoop! I threw on a fave pair of boots from Maitreya, also mesh, along with my Go To skin of late, Cassiopea from Glam Affair, and I was set for some shopping and visiting, and even some dancing. That’s all for this quickie..and it’s even done and still Friday!!! Yay me! *waves* See you soon!

Elate Again

Catty Does a Post!!!!

Just when you thought it was safe…..

Summer is over, tho it really doesn’t feel like that is possible. My MiniMe has gone back to school, and it’s time to start trying to get things done again at home, and in SL. The summers brought a lot of surprises, from almost losing my only brother, to a week spent at Sturgis during Rally (and another at Lake Superior) and even some new family horses, all of which reminded me just how important it is we make the best of each day we have, and to reach out for that which we love, and to not be so afraid to speak our feelings.

Hatpinned

Vintage Fair has begun while I wasn’t looking, and Reghan of Hatpins has created a pair of earrings I’ve not wanted to take off since she sent them to me. They are so well constructed, perfectly detailed and oh-so-touchable, as always with Hatpins, and go with a multitude of different looks and era styles. Vintage Fair ends soon so if you haven’t been over there, it is a must see, many things there a girl, or guy, with a fashion interest, must have.

Catified

When I initially decided I just had to blog these earrings since I love them so much, I didn’t know what to choose to wear with them as the possibilities are endless, and I just haven’t been out much this summer getting new things. So, I started out naked, when in doubt, skin always works!! But before the camera pulled away from me for a full shot, I’d found myself in a yummy, glittery evening out dress from Kyoot. I love a short little black dress, or red, or pretty much any other color…but I do need to step out of my own box a bit and find more dressy things, any suggestions where I should shop? It’s time for some new adventures and new passions in the worlds I love. See you soon! XOXO

Blink and Summers Over

Summer has gone so fast, I was caught by surprise when the weather guy announced the official end to summer. In an attempt to jump start my blogging, I thought I’d start with some favorite purchases, from the summer, that make great looks for autumn too. Seems like only a few days ago I purchased this yummy shirt from League, and I can’t seem to take off this Truth hair, purchased at a past Colabor88. With Autumn here so soon, that of course means there is more shopping to do, and that means more blogging! See you again soon!!

RFL 2011 – Doing FFL at Nyte’n’Day

Fashion for Life 2011 is soon coming to a close, so don’t procrastinate your visit any longer. It officially ends after Tuesday. I’ve much enjoyed wandering the shops this year, there are many old favorites and lots of new names too.

FFL - Nyte N Day and Elikatira

One old favorite I was happy to see at FFL 2011 is Nyte’n’Day. I’ve loved Nyte’n’Day since my earliest days in SL over 4 years ago. Nyte does an amazing job with quality, style and details and many of her fashions are in my favorites folder, some have been there for years now, and I continue to find new things frequently to add to the folder. The dress is by all means going to be at the top of my favorites list, I love it’s retro feel. The skirt would work great with other tops, or a jacket too, for a quick change. The shorts jumpsuit is fun and goes so well with my fave pair of Bax boots. The tights and belt I love, and anticipate wearing with other outfits too…and I wonder how the top would look with a pair of black jeans or leggings? I’ll have to give it a try! I love mixing and matching different bits but don’t get shots of them often enough. Both of these are special colors, just for FFL, so you don’t want to miss them.

FFL - Nyte N Day and Elikatira

The Henley Tee is definitely a favorite from FFL. I haven’t taken it off in two days!! It paired up nicely with a fave pair of comfy jeans for a lazy weekend so I’m sure it’s going to get worn again and again. As with the others above, it’s a special color for FFL so don’t wait much longer to go get yours. I love the Elikatira Lasting hair, in all it’s 12 colors of the FFL Collection so much, I had to grab the Hye hair too, and I love it just as much, if not a bit more!!

FFL - Nyte N Day and Elikatira

As I said earlier, FFL ends soon, so don’t delay or you may end up wishing you’d taken the opportunity to grab all these yummies while helping a RL cause that hits home to almost all of us. Grab a few friends and head on over, turn on the stream, and enjoy your shopping!
