This is one of my most favourite looks, whenever there is a fancy dress party i always go as a Schoolgirl so when i spotted my outfit in Sticky fingers i just knew i had to blog it.
Obviously at school i was always a good girl, well behaved and smart (yeah right) so i went for the good girl image for my look.
My hair this week comes from Elikatira, i chose "again" in the carrot reds set, As a RL hairdresser the bob is a style i never get bored of and i love all the different variations of the style, This hair has the gorgeous A-symmetric fringe, there is also an option in this set to have the fringe pulled off the face in a quiff which is just as cute, i always opt to buy my shorter hair styles from Elikatira and my wedding hair is from there too. as you will see in next weeks Blog hehehe
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Geek glasses, I'm a total nerd so i feel these fit me perfectly, i have several pairs from different stores including Pritty and several marketplace pairs but the ones i chose for this look are from *cute bytes* they are texture changeable, they are scripted so you can change the colour, accessories, studs, transparency, and re size them and they are a MUST have for any self proclaimed Geek. I'm not sure if there is an in world store but you can buy them for just $50l on the marketplace
My outfit comes from the fabulous Stickyfingers, i just adore this store right now, i seem to spend a LOT of money in there, Their clothes are all gorgeous you'd be totally spoilt for choice.
This awesome schoolgirl outfit comes in red or blue and the tie is included in the set. it's available in world for $240L, it's totes worth joining the sticky fingers group for their monthly gifts and they are always taking part in hunts so there are extra goodies available if you can just find them
no prizes for guessing where my shoes come from...... YES N-core!!! they are the super cool ultra platforms, i opted to wear the fishnets with them which are included in your box along with the hud to adapt the skin tone etc. j'adore these shoes, Brookie and i have been drooling over them for weeks and i got them first muahahahahaha. If i even tried to walk in these in RL I'd break my neck for sure, happily i can even run in them in world hehehe They are available in world for $795L
This week, Vi and I have gone back to school!
When i used to go to school, I was a bit on the wild side, and for this weeks blog, I decided to stick with that and show a little rebellious streak :o) So my version of Back to school, isn't exactly what we would want our teenagers going to school dressed in!!
First up, my hair. I opted to go with a ponytail as it was my preferred style back in the day, and as i went to a convent school (before i was kicked out!) it was a somewhat enforced hairstyle too. This hair is from the brilliant Truth Hair, and its called Keeley, here I'm wearing the streaked option, but it comes without streaks for the better behaved girls!! I love Truth hair for the brilliant textures and attention to detail, such as the little hair clips that this one sports.

Now my outfit, which once again I've mixed and matched from items i already own.
Firstly my cardi, which is one i bought in a number of colours from Boom, when they had a sale on. Its called Wrong Sized Cardi because as you can see, its a couple of sizes too small! This cardi is lovely and looks brilliant with jeans or skirts, and again, its got lovely attention to detail, like the scrunched up arm prims.

My shirt is actually a dress that has a shirt in the pack. Its called My Darling from Ero Rabbi. The shirt & dress come with re sizable prim collar & tie, cuffs and shirt bottom prims. The dress option is super sexy and looks like you have just gotten out of bed and thrown your lovers shirt on, super cute.

My skirt is from the amazing Sakide which i think I've mentioned in every blog up to now!! Its called the Zipped Mini, and comes in a variety of colours. As you can see, I'm wearing the open zipped option, but this skirt also comes with a closed zipped option too.

Lastly are my shoes, which are also from Sakide, and come in a variety of colours, these are the Black Damask and i love them for their flexibility, i can wear them with skirts, dresses, pants, jeans, everything and they are super easy to fit.

So that's my back to school week, yes ill get detention for turning up like this, but who cares as long as the hottie from my science class is there too?

This week we chose Gypsy girl as our theme, and it's been great fun, i have to say my whole outfit came from the same shop but it was a case of, i saw it and i HAD to have it, it's so well made and totally gorgeous to wear.
OK so we'll start with hair, this gorgeous style comes from D!va it's called Airi2 and the colour is called Black amber, i really love the hair from D!va the only thing that disappoints me is that they don't have decent gingers, the colour range is limited and i found that black amber was the nearest to my usual choice of colour. in each pack of this style you have 2 fringe options, a full full or a side swept fringe. and the ribbon is texture changeable which helps for changing outfits. i love how well made the hair is and the style i felt was perfect for my gypsy girl romantic look.
my outfit comes from League, The Seashell blouse and Nomad skirt.
The blouse, i chose in cream, it looks amazing as part of this outfit but also could be worn with jeans and look equally as gorgeous, comes in Three different layers for your ease of use.
The Nomad skirt comes in a variety of shades and patterns, for my look i chose the floral and cream, the skirts includes two hip fits and two lengths so you can find the size that suits you best and re size from there, to wear this skirt to full effect the designer recommends using a "calm" ao, as the skirt has many prims that attach to various lower parts of your body and if you wear a crazy ao it will appear to be flying all over the place, the belt and tassel's are all included in the skirt too i think it's absolutely gorgeous.
My Necklace was also from League, the "Vintage" jewellery set you can wear the set separately or all together as i have done, it does also come with Earrings but i feel lost without my hoops and wear them all the time.
For my Gypsy girl look i chose to go barefoot as the skirt is so long you can't actually see shoes underneath it so i thought why waste time blogging about shoes that you can't see. Normally i would wear my Bare feet from N-core (included in Brookie's blurb below) rather than just have horrible noob feet. and i also wore my eye makeup from Damned which is mentioned in a previous blog , I'm really happy with this look and i really enjoyed looking for girly styles that wouldn't be my usual look.
I picked up this skin at The Dressing room, it's by Glam Affair and is called JadisV2 in green ash, i absolutely love The Dressing room for picking up quality bargains and i think its definitely worth joining the group to keep informed on new updates.

Helloooo again Peeps,
This week is Gypsy Week, and once again I've had a ton of fun looking for inspiration and trying on different outfits and hair. The Gypsy look is - I think - a really sexy look, and so feminine.
The hair Ive chosen for today's theme is a gorgeous scarved one from D!va, who do some of the most feminine, pretty girly hair in SL, I love the textures and colours. This hair is called Mai, and it comes with a scarf and chain, both are retexturable and also removable. It was a gift from when D!va celebrated more than 10,000 group members. This hair, and other group gifts is available upstairs at the main store along with some lucky boards-happy days eh?
Now to my outfit, which is a skirt and top bought separately and matched up to make a complete outfit.
My top is one I have bought from marketplace, a gorgeous Peasant Wench top from Candace Hudson, I'm wearing the white version, but its also available in black. This top takes a little editing to fit to your boobs but is well worth taking the time to do. Theres a few options for this top too, so you can change it up a little every time you wear it, theres full sleeves or short sleeves, a chest prim and a bottom lace prim, great for mixing and matching. Candace does quite a few Gypsy/Peasant clothes, its well worth a look, the textures and prims are spot on.

The skirt is one I've had sitting in my inventory for quite a while, and to be honest id forgotten i even had it! Its from the brilliant Sakide (used to be Sassy Kitty Designs).
This very sexy skirt drops slightly at the back to show a hint of butt cleavage, and also comes with 2 pants options depending on your preference - a leggings option, and also a shorts option to show that leg!! The prim skirt has a re sizer option to easily adjust to your shape.
noob feet that we are "born" with in SL, I invested some time ago, in the Bare Feet from the amazing, brilliant, and fantastic N-Core! I swear by this store, the shoes (and bare feet) are truly amazing, each comes with a skin match hud, and also-and so importantly-a nc with the skin matching codes of some of the best known and popular Skins in SL. This makes it super easy to match the feet to your skin-genius.

Along with my feet, I've chosen to accessorise my ankles with some lovely little ankle bangles from Twisted & Spoiled. The bangles unfortunately aren't sold separately but are part of the kaftan and Bikini Set, which i bought in nude, and is available in lots of other colours.

My bracelets are from one of my favourite jewellery stores in SL-LouLou and Co. This store does gorgeous jewellery and accessories, really quirky and unusual in style, and expertly made. The bracelets are called Enigma and come with lace gloves which I've opted not to wear for this theme. They are available in white too which i wear quite a lot with other outfits.

My nails and rings are some of my favourite. They are from Virtual Insanity, another of my favourite jewellery shops. Ive been shopping here a couple of years now, and with each of my avatars, its always been one of the first places i come. I have tons of nails from this store (amongst other things lol) , and honestly i think they are far better than nails of other stores, i particularly like the ones that come with rings, but sometimes ill wear the nails on their own, or with rings from other stores. This set is called ASIA rings and nails, and if i remember rightly they were released as a fund raiser for the Japan Tsunami Relief Effort, but they are still available now.
