Fireside

Firelight

Summer is coming to an end, just a couple of weekends to go, and this one is being spent relaxing by the fire with friends. Not looking forward to going back to work here in just another week, but the promise of future summers is always on my mind……

See styling notes, but I want to feature in this post from my sponsors – hair and nails. First up is my fantastic braided hairstyle from enVOGUE. This is “Lorelay” in light blondes. It’s a great chunky braid that goes down the back. Amazing details, and you can change the color of the bands on the ends of the braids to coordinate with your outfit via included HUD. I’m also wearing the CATWA hairbase V2 in light blonde also from enVOGUE to coordinate perfectly.

The Path

The Path

Today was a perfect day to talk an August walk through the trees. This lovely path was perfect, with the sunlight passing through the trees in a lazy sorta way. There was a little bit of a chill in the air letting me know that fall is just around the corner……

My outfit today is a compilation of items I’ve found at several different events I’ve visited lately and wanted to share them with you. First up are my amazing boho style jeans with colorful inset pockets and trim around the bell bottoms. These are the “Echo’s retro pants” from L.A. Bos for SWANK August. These are so fun! It comes with a hud that allows you to change the color of the pants to one of seven different colors: white, denim, yellow, pink, orange, blue and cream. So fun! Pick yours up at this month’s edition of SWANK before they are gone!

It comes in pastels, and also bold colors including a fat pack with additional colors not available for separate purchase. So don’t miss it at Collabor88 this month.

Rosalinda Hair

My hair is a new release at the enVOGUE mainstore entitled “Rosalinda”. I LOVE this style. Such detail on the top with an interwoven style along the head and then long sweeps down to the chest. Wonderful textures on this hair make it look so realistic and amazing. Materials and non-materials versions are included. I’m wearing one of the choices in the light blondes HUD, but there are also several other shade collections sure to help complete you own look.

Finally, my nails are from Alme. These are the “Sexy Lace” nails for Fetish Fair through August 18th. After that they will be available at the Alme mainstore.

Summer Can’t Come Fast Enough!

Beach Ride

Rain, Rain Go Away! This year has been extremely wet where I am, we can’t seem to go more than 24 hours without rain. So ready for summer to be here, so when I received this fantastic outfit from I.M. Collection called “Zinnia” I knew I had to find the beach. A fantastic mesh tank top with spaghetti straps is paired with a wrap style skirt. I chose this beautiful grey/pink floral skirt since the colors and pattern are so in with the grey and pinks. The other colors available are solids including coral, fuschia, rose, teal and violet. I’m wearing the mesh rigged for Maitreya in this photo, but it also comes with versions for Slink and HG. It’s available now to start your spring/summer off right at the I.M. Collection Mainstore now.
