suit up!

My first post of the new year – I hope you’ve had a lovely few weeks, whatever you’ve been up to, and that 2015 brings lots of good things to you all! Personally, I’ve had a lovely relaxing time and am returning fully refreshed and looking forward to getting this blog and my other projects fully rolling.

I couldn’t think of a better way to begin blogging this year than treating myself to these beautiful unisex 2-piece skirt-suits from A:S:S. There are three versions currently available (the third being navy blue) and each set comes with boob-ed and flat versions of the jacket-and-shirt combo, several sizes of each piece (I found it easy finding sizes that worked, but remember – demo, demo, demo!) and a HUD with options to texture the shirt and tie individually in a choice of 10 colours.

Unisex clothing seems hard to come by (at least that’s what I’m discovering so far) and cannot be easy to make, so finding work as gorgeous as this is truly heartening and inspiring.. and, at under L$300 each, I also think they’re an absolute steal!

Additionally, the shoes on Prot are by Thor and are also very versatile including, as they do, a HUD with options to texture 5 areas individually with a choice of 7 colours (and also an option of dark or light trim) – they scale down brilliantly, too, so I’m pretty sure they could fit on daintier feet if you so desire.

Finally, thank you to all of you who visit this blog – I love sharing the things I find and I really hope you enjoy me doing so too. Here’s to another year of fabulous fashion! 🍸

of a feather


I’m honoured to know some amazing people who continually stun me with their talent and kindness. One such person is the delectable Shortcake Sugarplum of no.7. Recently she sent me a goodie-box of her latest release – these beautiful feather shawls. I salivated over the contents (my word but the colours are amazing!) but didn’t notice right away that she had named one for me (the bottom one in this pic) based on the colours used in one of the pictures I released at The Gallery Gift Shop anniversary, which she curates. (The picture is ‘it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day’ which can be seen in the ad here for those curious.) You can find these, and many others just as gorgeous, at the Jewelry & Accessory Expo until Dec 13th. Thank you so much, Shortcake ❤ ❤

I also love the unisex skins that Deluxe Body Factory have been producing for MadPea events recently (I covered another over on my previous blog) – these can be found at MadPea’s Scrumptious Sweets Advent event until Jan 4th and also include 2 shape options. I adore the face of ‘Dakota‘ and hope there is more unisex yuminess on the horizon!

And I Feel Fine

And I Feel Fine
It’s the end of the world as we know it..

Genre has started a new round and, this time, the theme is Post Apocalyptic. Chariot‘s contribution are these fabulous scavenged breastplates – they are modifiable so I had no trouble fitting them to my shape and the textures are exquisite, as always. There are three versions available: ‘Unstoppable‘ (pictured), ‘No Entry‘ and ‘Diverted‘ – they cost just L$50 each or you can buy all three for L$100. The round is open until December 12th and is packed full of incredible items so be sure to hop on over!

I also want to mention this androgynous ‘Jahne Doe‘ skin by Deluxe Body Factory because I am utterly in love with it! It’s one of the prizes in MadPea’s latest interactive hunt/game, Blood Letters. A modifiable shape is also included but I used my own because I really like the way it looks on my current face shape.

Blood Letters is an unusual and compelling murder-mystery game that unfolds a little bit each day. You need a HUD to play (costs L$400) which allows you to pick up clues – you receive prizes at the rate of one a day (if you miss a day, don’t worry – you can go back along the time line, you just can’t skip ahead) and then a bunch more at the end; they have all been stunning so far (you’ll have to wait a little longer for this skin as the story hasn’t reached that location yet.) I’ve been playing along and it really is a lot of fun with a great sense of community in the MadPea group as we all try to solve the case! The game runs until November 30th and the starting point is here; full instructions on how to play can be found over at the MadPea blog. The experience is most definitely adult-orientated so I would recommend making sure you are comfortable with the themes before taking part.

Thanks for reading – see you all soon!
