First Frost

First Frost

I smell snow! Three famous words of Lorelai Gilmore. My adorable hair is new from Exile at The Arcade. The color of the earmuffs can be changed via hud to one of 8 colors. The rest of my outfit I have blogged before. The clothes several times. So I just include them in the credits!

Spring Fix / Manicure Monday

Spring Fix at HPMD

Truth has a new hairstyle out at this month’s Uber. Polilla can be worn with an optional headband and butterflies. All are color change by hud. The butterflies made me long for spring, so I went to HPMD to get my fix. I love that it is always beautiful and green there.

Selfie at HPMD

Shiny Shabby is celebrating their anniversary and many of the participating creators have set gifts out. I am wearing a few of them in these pictures. Almost everyone has something out. You can pick up a complete outfit. Thank you designers!

Deer at HPMD

The nail applier that I am wearing is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. This one is from LIVIA. It is only L$35 and comes with all three huds (slink, maitreya, and omega). The Zenith deer ring and E-clipse clutch are both free at Shiny Shabby.

One very important note for you nail addicts. A transparent nails hud was given out in the Maitreya Lara Friends group . I imagine that this is so you can wear your nail attachments. It was given out by Maitreya’s CSR, Gryphon Ronas. You can probably pick it up at Maitreya.

I was looking for some new nail appliers to share with you all. I think the easiest way to find what’s new is looking through flickr Second Life appliers groups. A few of the groups are listed here. They aren’t all monitored groups, so you will find some pictures that don’t even show the nail polish.

The Reasons Why We Love Autumn

The Secret Store - Blogger Search - Caroline Apollo

Autumn will be here before we know it. I love it when the leaves change colors and the weather gets cooler. It’s nice to be able to go for a long walk. There is nothing like summertime, but I am not a fan of the extreme heat. And then there are pumpkins. I know some of you are not fans of the overdone drink, still I do love pumpkin spice lattes. Recently I went to visit a shopping sim that had nice builds and landscaping. I was happy to see they have already transformed into fall.

I was on my way out for the night, so I grabbed a quick pastry and latte at the local coffee house. I posed for quick paparazzi pictures before I hit the night life. They shouted, “Who are you wearing and who did your gorgeous hair?!” I paired up The Secret Store’s new Nathalie Tutu Dress with a Gold Lame Cropped Jacket that I picked up earlier in the year. I believe the jacket color was a special for the N21 event. These cute shoes that I am wearing have a butterfly on the top and were made by Ingenue. My gorgeous Sugar Hair style was created by The Secret Store. And the aqua gemstone statement jewelry came from Modern Couture.

There’s a New Brand in Town

Neve Athena Dress

The fashion design team of coldLogic have rebranded themselves to Neve. This new line will carry mesh support for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the default avatar. I am very happy to hear this because I love their clothes, but I do not like to take off my Maitreya Lara body. The main store landmarks and marketplace links will remain in the same location. Over the next few days I will be showing you their new designs.

I really love how Neve is using a color change hud on all new garments. Shown in the image is the hud. You are able to choose the color of the top, skirt, and ties. They can be mixed up anyway that you desire. Today was a boho kind of day. I decided to wear the Neve Athena dress in the boho design. I am wearing the cream colored top with the plum skirt and ties. The dress also comes in neutral and lively color packs.

My gorgeous Paon shoes in bronze from Ingenue matched the Neve dress color perfectly. The fun pose is new from !bang for Shiny Shabby. I’m still wearing my hair in the cute pony tails that I picked up at Truth Hair. I thought the leather wrap bracelets went well with the dress along with my Atomic Sweet Deer Romantic Necklace. Some things never go out of style.

How to Change Your Look from Day to Night

Day to Night

This is a quick way to change your look from day to night. One outfit will take you through your busy schedule. Accessories can change the look of an outfit tremendously. The Secret Store Nathalie Tutu Dress will be the main piece of fashion we will stick with all day. Here are two ways to wear this dress from day to night.

My day started out with ballet practice. I simply wore my hair loosely back. My ballerina tutu, as mentioned above, is from The Secret Store. This dress is made to fit Maitreya and Slink bodies or the standard avatar. No jewelry is needed for ballet practice. REIGN leg warmers and ballet slippers are all the additional accessories needed to complete this look. These particular leg warmers are hud driven to change the skin color, worn or clean look shoes, and shoe color to white, pink, or black. They are also made to fit Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Belleza bodies.

Ready for a night out on the town in a quick flash. Adding a statement Glam Affair Bubble necklace, Junbug Antique Cuffs, and a small REIGN rose wristlet makes my Nathalie Tutu Dress date ready. For a moment I contemplated wearing the sheer top that came with the dress. The leg warmers and slippers were exchanged for some gorgeous Ingenue Le Papillon Heels. These cute heels are made to fit Maitreya and Slink feet and are available in 12 colors. My long hair was let down and tousled around my shoulders.
