Better luck next time I guess….

I enjoy a man in a uniform, and I thought that if I set myself up in a cute outfit and hung around an area where these guys would frequent, that maybe I might catch their eye. So I ended up at an airport, posed my cutest pose, and sadly, no luck. On the bright side, I found some really great cheapies for my look that I think you will enjoy.

I got this sexy dress from the current round of the OMG Room for only L$1, and it is the Erika dress by ::JK Style:: . It is a mesh dress in standard sizes, though I had to go up a size, so they may fit a little smaller. It comes with a HUD to change the colour of the tiger stripe area and there are 6 different colours to choose from. I did show you the earrings and bracelets that come with this dress, HERE, and there is also a ring, that I have not shown. So all in all, it’s a pretty nice set up for a great price! Can’t beat that.

The necklace and earrings that I am wearing are the female hunt gift, En Route,  for the Around the Grid in 80 days hunt, from B!ASTA and was already shown HERE by Love. The little blue ‘gems’ in the golden hoops are actually globes, and I really love the tassel hanging from the necklace chain. I’ll remind you, this is a L$1 hunt, and for all you male readers, or women with males in their life…LOL, there is a men’s hunt prize hidden at B!ASTA as well, so everyone wins!

Last up, but definitely not the least, is the August group gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. This beautiful, slightly sunkissed skin has really pretty dark purple eyeshadow with a hint of gloss to the simple lips. I love when a skin is not heavily made-up, especially when it is so easy to add our own makeup. Unlike past group gifts, where the appliers for the skin were set out for you to buy separately, this time, the appliers are included for free, so almost all of you meshy-bits lovers should be happy 🙂 I loved not having to try to tint my hands and feet 😉 The gift is free, just slap on your group tag, and currently, the group is L$200 to join, but there have been many occasions lately where the group fee was lowered quite a bit or even free, for a short time. So if you can’t warrant the L$200, which is more than fair for this months gift alone, keep your eyes open, there might be another cheap or free join session. Oh, and there is a new male skin gift out as well, so guys, take a look!

OK, I think I have hung around here long enough with no uniformed man on my arm to show off. Oh well, maybe next time, or maybe I need to find a different spot. The hunt is on!

Until next time, TTFN 🙂

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are 🙂 Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved 😛  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree 🙂

Until next time, TTFN *waves*
