Moz Pia Belted Leather JacketI’m all about having some really great pieces in my closet that have a lot of versatility. One of those has got to be a smokin’ hot leather jacket. The “Pia” belted leather jacket by !MOZ fits the bill with style. The belt gives nice definition to the waist line, and the fleece-lined collar an cuffs offer a cozy warm appeal during these waning days of winter.

The faux turtle neck can be worn optionally, and the coat looks great either with or without. A seven color HUD for the turtle neck is included with the jacket. The jacket itself is offered in six colors, with individual colors priced at L$199 full price, or L$150 for group members.

  • Jacket: [!MOZ] Java
  • Leggings: Hilly Haalan Tabea
  • Hair: **NOYA** Charity (Marketplace review gift)
  • Body: Tonic Curvy Beauty
  • Head: LAQ Neve
  • Skin: Lumae Eirtae

“Java” top by Well Made and “Skater Skirt” by Meli Imako

Well Made JavaTop And Meli Imako Skater SkirtSo I’m leaving my usual girl-next-door look neatly hung in the armoire, and giving you something a little more edgy today.

[WellMade] has turned out to be a great source of clothes for Tonic’s Curvy Beauty, and as an example, I’m showing one of the group gifts, the Java top. From the buckle to the ruffles to the seams to the studs, the detailing is super. Two colors are included in the texture HUD, black and brown. Fits us busty girls pretty nicely, wouldn’t you say?

For the intrepid stylist, Meli Imako has a nice selection of full-perm clothing with fitmesh models for quite a variety of bodies. A skater skirt is one of those basics that many of us want to have in our closets, and Meli Imako has a pretty sweet one on marketplace. Included with the skirt are four different textures. Black is not one of them, but I found it simple enough to edit one of the included textures in GIMP and apply it to the Curvy fitmesh model. The full-perm fitmesh version sells for L$300 on marketplace; please read the TOS.

And let’s not forget the finishing details. The tights are Young & Beautiful Tights from Entice, the Heart Choker is from ::RxK::, and the Mens Bracelet is from Chop Zuey. The choker and bracelet are available as gifts at Ajuda SL Brasil. Finally, the hair, Portia, is a gift from Firelight, five hair colors in the HUD, also available at Ajuda SL Brasil.

“Nora” Sweater by Moz and “Tabea” Leggings by Hilly Haalan

Moz Sweater & [hh] Leggings_001In case you’re looking to fill out your inventory with some basics, like sweaters or leggings, I’ve put together a comfy little outfit that you might be interested in.

First the sweater. Fizz has a corner of her store set aside for featured designers, her own little designer showcase. One of the designers currently in the store is Moz, with their Nora sweater (Tonic Exclusive) on display. It looks like there are five individual colors available for L$199 each (L$150 group) or seven in the fatpack for L$595 (L$497 group). The sweater fits Curvy very perfectly, and it fits nicely over a number of skirts and pants I’ve worn it with.

And speaking of what you might wear it over, Hilly Haalan has her Tabea fitmesh leggings (including models for Curvy and Fine) on sale this weekend for L$99. The leggings have a ribbed pattern, and the texture HUD includes ten colors, so they can be worn just about any season of the year. The strappy platform heels, by the way, are a group gift from Hilly.

Finally, the hair, Leslie, is a gift from Firelight, five hair colors in the HUD, available at Ajuda SL Brasil.

“Jane” Sleeved Top and Shorts by Alter

Alter Jane_003I blogged an outfit from the 2nd Chance Sales Event earlier this month (“Ghee” Fall17 Classic Boucle Suit). But since tomorrow is the final day for the event, I had to go back for a last look. I happened upon this top and shorts set (sold as separates, L$155 each piece) at one of the Alter kiosks. Since it’s hard for me to walk away from an animal print, and since it included fitmesh models for Tonic’s Curvy Beauty, I had to grab the demo. Glad I did! When I got home and tried them on, I discovered a few things that were not apparent to me in the kiosk. (Although if I had paying closer attention… Anyway…)

So the leopard print top is what caught my attention. But what I had missed was that it’s an open-sleeve top, and the sleeves are sheer. Either one would be a nice edge, but together they are awesome. The other sweet detail that I was in too much of a hurry to notice was the buckle on the shorts. The buckle is in the shape of a panther head (I think), which nicely picks up the animal print theme of the top, and is finished with a sexy little chain that attaches to the end of the belt. Very cool! The top and shorts fit Curvy snugly and perfectly, without having to dink around with the alphas. The top and shorts are each available in a variety of colors.

In my last post I mentioned that I liked buying separates, because I can mix and match to put together several new outfits from one purchase. That top is especially versatile, as I can see wearing it with leather leggings, jeans, or that Snappy Leather Mini Skirt from Tonic that I blogged last week.

So anyway, if this piques your interest, the event runs through February 8.

 

 

Leather Skirt and Satin Blouse by Tonic

Tonic Skirt and BlouseHi ladies! I hope everyone is well. I’m going to take a moment from texting with my bff about her latest drama to tell you about a spicy little outfit you can put together at the Tonic main store, as well as some super cute boots from Hilly Haalan.

Leather and silk. Two of my favorite materials. I’m not alone here, right? The scoop-neck blouse is a sleek, sensuous silk. The bottom flares out enough to make it wearable with various jeans and skirts you might already have in your inventory, without the two pieces interfering with each other. In addition, the blouse’s HUD let’s you select four layers of sheer, from completely opaque to something you might wear over a cami. The skirt is a lovely soft leather texture, with the attention to detail that you would expect from Fizz, such as seams in the right places, straps and snaps down one side, and a zipper down the other.

The blouse and the skirt are sold as separates (each sells for L$300), and they work really well together. What I like about separates is that you can get a lot of versatility for your money. If I’ve got five or six skirts or jeans that I can wear that blouse with, that’s five or six outfits for the price of one. On top of that, the skirt and blouse each are sold as packs of 16 colors, so there is a lot of mixing and matching that you can do just with those two pieces. Both pieces are made for Tonic’s Curvy and Fine.

I have to say, these Phoenix boots from Hilly Haalan are officially my cutest boots! They are loose fit, so although Tonic Curvy isn’t explicitly included, it wasn’t difficult to find a fit. I’m wearing the Freya model. The pack includes both solids and prints, 30 textures in all, for L$145.

The hair, which includes the fatpack HUD, is available as a promo from .:EMO-tions:. on Marketplace for L$1. And the phone with its animations (chat, selfie, etc.) is included in Vista’s Esther Bento set.

Queen of Hearts by Blue Moon Enterprise

queen of heartsIf you have engaged in fantasy role play here, you might be familiar with Blue Moon Enterprise (BMe). BMe produces exquisitely detailed costumes for fantasy / medieval role play themes. Anyway, the reason I’ve turned back the clock on fashion here is because BMe has made a gorgeous gown available as a group gift, Queen of Hearts. I think it normally sells for L$650, but as I say, group gift right now.

The gown is classic mesh in 5 standard sizes. My dresser was able to tightly lace up the bodice with a deep breath on my part and just some minor tweaks to my shape. And as usual, that is with me wearing the Tonic Curvy Beauty mesh body. So, thumbs up on the fit!

The design, the construction, the fabrics, the embellishments, everything is just stunning. I’m not even going to try to describe it. You can zoom in on the photograph, or better still, head over to BMe, join the group, and pick up the gown. You truly will feel like royalty. Thank you to the folks at BMe for this beautiful gift.

Sweet E’s Paige at The Event

Sweet E's paigeAh, the 60’s. Gone, but not forgotten. Bell-bottom trousers, bold paisley prints, it was its own brand of fun fashion. I was at The Event today, and ran across this little outfit for L$99 that has a playful retro feel about it. It’s an Event exclusive from Sweet E’s, and it’s called Paige. It’s a three piece set in purple featuring a tank top, jeans, and an off-the-shoulder sweater. It includes models for classic and numerous mesh bodies, and importantly for me, Tonic Curvy Beauty is represented.

The tank is a button-up front in paisley with wide straps (as opposed to spaghetti straps) and cropped just below the belly button. The sweater, as I mentioned, is off-the-shoulder, featuring a soft lining and a draw string (with convincing wrinkles on the fabric surrounding the string). Also, the sweater is loose enough that it can be worn with, for example, a bustier. The trousers are a purple denim jean, split down the front and back of each leg, with the paisley print sewn in to flare out the legs. The jeans come in versions fit for high, mid, and flat heels. Really cute!

It is available now at the Event, but they rotate some of their items frequently. I don’t know how much longer Paige will be available, so if you’re interested, you will want to head out there soon. Happy shopping!

“Leesa” by Finale Couture at Designer Showcase

, , , , ,

finale couture leesaSo I’ve seen a few things at the January round of Designer Showcase that include models for Tonic’s Curvy Beauty. One of them that caught my attention is this Designer Showcase exclusive from Finale Couture called Leesa. The outfit includes a cropped knit turtleneck sweater, leather pants, and a belly chain. Individual colors are available at the Showcase for L$200. Eight colors are available, and I’m shown wearing blush.

The detailing is fantastic. Very convincing wrinkles are molded into the mesh of the sweater and pants. The texture of the leather is soft and sensual, the sweater is a comfy close knit with those nice lines of embellishment down the front. The chain includes a resize script, and I managed a fairly good fit on my not-so-easy-to-fit shape. With the low-rise pants, the cropped sweater, and that bold chain, the outfit has a little bit of an edge to it, yet remains altogether tasteful. What a great balance to achieve.

Designer Showcase Gifts – January 2019

giulia design arisa_001I want to do a quick post on a couple of gifts I picked up at Designer Showcase. There are some really nice things there; it’s worth a trip.

The first is this outfit that Giulia Designs has out as a gift, Arisa. As I’ve written earlier, I’m trying to focus on clothes for Tonic’s Curvy Beauty body. Although the gift does not include a model for Curvy, it’s so pretty that I decided to model it on my Physique body. It has very nice detailing on both the top and the pants, and the top has that very sexy low back. I know it’s early for pastels, but Spring is just around the corner, right?

gouttes d'or by zoom_001The next gift is from zOOm, the Gouttes d’or Dress. Well, I’m seeing more of a negligee than a dress, but let’s not sweat the small stuff, right? It’s so delicate and pretty, and this one indeed includes a model for Curvy.

alix choker by avada_001Lastly, a must-have piece, the Alix choker from Avada. The HUD includes a nice selection of colors for the band, the metal, and the stone, and it has a great resize script.

Ghee Fall17 Classic Boucle Suit

, , , ,

ghee classic boucle suit_002So since I started wearing Tonic’s Curvy Beauty, I’ve given myself a little challenge: to scour the grid to find clothes to fit this lovely mesh body. A quick and easy way to sample numerous designers is to drop by one of the many fashion events that come up from time to time. My first stop was the 2nd Chance Sales Event. Indeed, I found several offerings for Tonic bodies, although none really fit my style. There was an outfit that grabbed my attention, although it did not include fitmesh models for Tonic. However, a couple of the included models worked very nicely on Curvy Beauty.

I’m talking about the Boucle Suit from Ghee, a timeless classic available for only L$100. The textures are warm tweed wool, richly detailed. There are half a dozen colors available at the event (I’m wearing Port), and even the rose has a warm, cozy look to it. The skirt is high-waisted and the jacket cropped, giving you a nice long silhouette. The jacket and the skirt can be worn separately. I’m finding that skirts made for Lara fit Curvy Beauty pretty well, usually with just the widest part of the hip needing to be alpha-ed out. And the Hourglass model of the jacket is a good fit for the top. Pair the suit with Ghee’s Bento Croc Gloves, and you’re set for afternoon tea at the Club, or shopping the high-end boutiques with the gals.

Now… I’d sent my executive assistant out for a latte. What’s taking him so long?
