A Brand New Store From The Designer Of Sweetest Goodbye!

I wonder if you remember a store that had really great quality mainly in casual wear called “Sweetest Goodbye”?  I was very sad when the owner and designer of this store contacted me to tell me that she decided to close her store due to busy RL.

But she’s back!  And not only back, she is coming up with even better quality items that is definitely going to make this store a place you need to watch!

Morphine Janick, once designer of Sweetest Goodbye is back with a brand new store called monso!  She cleared out all her creations with her earlier store and has come back with two amazing quality mesh items.  The store is still very small with very few items but keep her on your watch list because, I know, she will soon be filling this store with amazing items just like she did with her old store.

So here, I wore her second release, My Yagu Jacket in white.  There are five colour variations available and in each folder you buy you will get a variation of sizes raging from XS to XL due to the difficulty of resizing or editing mesh items.  Just look at the quality of her texture!  Simply amazing!

Here, I also used a pair of shin boots I bought at League some time ago.  These are not a new release but I have always treasured this in my inventory because of its flexibility.  You can change the colour of these boots to any shade you want and each boot part that make up the boots design is changeable too.  In other words, you can practically create your own unique design and match it with what you are wearing.

Welcome back, Morphine!  And I’ll be looking forward to seeing some great stuff from you!

Fun And Exciting New Pants From Sascha’s Designs

Sascha's Designs, Paisley Pants Dark #2 Pants & Bliss Couture, Ruffle Coat in Grey

Sascha Frangilli of Sascha’s Designs is releasing a very hot and exciting pants series!  It’s called “Paisley Pants” and comes in four amazing “dark” colours as well as another four “light” colours, which is eight colours in total!

Obviously the “light” colours tend to have a more spring-like feel but it’s been really cold this winter and a bit of a spring feel is something we can all welcome as long as we are living in countries that have cold winters.  For me, it’s been a tough cold winter this year and I am totally in love with the bright colours of these pants to brighten up my day!

Here, I styled one pair of pants from the “dark” series and one more from the “light” series.  For the “dark” pants, I styled it with one of the newly released fur bolero jacket from Bliss Couture for a more winter look.

The Ruffle Coat from Bliss Couture that I am wearing also comes in eight colour variations: blue, grey, magenta, noir, olive, pearl, purple and red.  With so many colours to choose from, I am sure you will be able to find one, if not more colours, that you like!

These fun and pretty pants are a great way to add some colour to our winter fashion!

I made the second look using a pair from the “light” colour series.  These are very fun to style too as you can easily pick one colour from the pants texture and add that colour as a point colour to your look.

Here, I styled it with a shirt from Coco for a more spring look and an amazing bag from Indyra Originals that is colour change in the main leather part and straps that allows up to 729 combinations!

New Releases from VoguE

VoguE has been a brand that is energetically coming up with some fantastic new releases and a brand that I am keeping an eye on.  VoguE designer, Zalyn Bailey has also launched her lingerie line as well as some great makeup tattoos this year and is definitely in a big development phase.

So I am going to be introducing 2 of her newest releases today.

One is an absolutely stunning cocktail dress called Alix dress.  It’s a very elegant dress with a tight fit using lace for the entire outfit.  The big ruffled sleeves add glamour and movement to the outfit.  The back view is very elegant and yet sexy too with a slit up the center of the skirt.

VoguE – Alix Dress in Onyx

And the next one is a nice winter jacket called Tabitha Fur Jacket.  Here I am wearing the silver colour version.

It has that class look and this will be a nice jacket to wear over pants or skirt.  As it’s sold as a separate, it will be a nice item to have to mix with other outfits.  Here I wore it with a cool leather pants from Dela.

The bag I am holding here is not a new release but one I absolutely love and use very often.  It comes with a hand-held version shown here as well as a shoulder hung version and I think it’s just simply adorable.

"Michigan Avenue" – A Winter Jacket From Tres Beau

Tres Beau has just introduced the “Michigan Avenue”, which is exactly what I wanted for the cold cold winter days. It’s a down feather jacket with fur and comes with a matching hat and leggings in two colours. When I first saw it I screamed and said “omg it’s so cute!”.

Tres Beau – “Michigan Avenue” in pink & white

I am liking it so much that I have been wearing this on and off for the past week and every time I go somewhere, I’ve been receiving IMs either asking me where I got it from or asking me for a landmark to the store. It’s one of those outfits that you just can’t miss.

By the way, we made a very pretty winter scenery where I live and I actually took these pictures at home. Doesn’t this outfit look so perfect in snow? But as the name suggests, it is actually a very nice city wear that can look really nice strolling down the streets of Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

The one I am wearing is the pink/white jacket and the set comes with both white and pink leggings you can choose that come in both pants and underpants layers. This outfit was released together with matching ankle boots that go with it so perfectly. The boots can be worn separately matching it with jeans or a mini dress with leggings and this alone is a must buy for the winter.

Jacket, hat and leggings: Tres Beau, Michigan Avenue (pink/white)
Boots: Tres Beau, Michigan Avenue Pink/white boots
Hair: Waka & Yuki Hair, Model Hair #25
Earrings: Caroline’s Jewelry, Pearl Stud Earrings

A Cool Jacket From "sey"

It’s getting cold in many parts of the world (at least where I am) and I wanted a new jacket to wear when I go ride my bike or even to wear in town.

risey Arai, designer for “sey” has just released a cool unisex rider’s casual jacket! It has a hood with boa or without boa, and the hood can be replaced with a high collar all together and you can also choose whether you want the emblem in the right front of your jacket or one without the logo.

The jacket comes in 8 really cool colour combinations, some a lot bolder like black/red with white border lines as well as delicate and sensuous colours like blue/purple with blue-ish fuchsia border lines. I must say, I ended up wanting at least three!

So all those who like outdoors, grab your jacket and enjoy the cool weather!

A Cool Racing Jacket

A really cool racing jacket was released by Drawmachine!! I just had to get this being a great race fan for both car and bike races myself! This was a new store for me and the moment I stepped inside, I was soooooo excited to see the items it had. There were also some sexy outfits that based its designs on racing but I wanted something more real….something I could wear if I were to race in SL. The jacket came in 5 colours; red, blue, green (more like Kawasaki lime green), yellow and sand. After taking ages to make up my mind between yellow and lime green, I decided to go with yellow. One regret is that the jacket only comes with the zip opened. So no closed zip version. But that’s ok. It’s not like I need all that protection in SL.

I found a cool pair of biker boots too which was available for both male and female avatars. I loved the texture used for both the boots and jacket. It just looked so real!

So here, I wore the jacket more like a fashion item matching it up with a sweet jeans mini skirt which can also be worn as a pair of short pants. I also wore the latest released pair of sunglasses from my fav sunglass store, ottico. This is colour change too! So I can change the colour of the flame as well as the lens. I am showing it in black and yellow frames in the pics below just so that you can see how the colour can be changed. By the way, to change the colour, all you have to do is click on the sunglass and you will get a drop down menu where you can choose whether you want to change the flame or the lens colour, and then choose a colour from the next drop down menu.

Oh I am just so happy and excited that I found this! I can’t get enough of this racing jacket!
