GOOD NEWS, EVERYBODY! So, if you stick around Second Life long enough, you might find your designer soul mates. This is the wisdom I give you now. My style has always, and will always, be a little strange, however I wasn’t able to be spot on ME until very recently. For this, I must thank Birdy, Pixicat, Spellbound, Reign and a slew of other amazing designers who design in a way that totally resonates with my personal style. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
This look is my quintessential transitional geddup for early autumn to late autumn/early winter. A big, warm, soft sweater paired with some sexy, fierce leather pants and a pair of kick-ass, sky-high boots. MY HEAVEN!
It’s simple and chic, but also interesting thanks to the details. The devil maybe be in the details, but so is the style. The metal plated pants, SWOON. The v-bangs hair, DOUBLE SWOON. And the boots, the boots, the boots…I just can’t. I may never change my outfit again. At least until the weather warms up. XO, Abra
So…I can’t get enough of these PIGGIES from Birdy! Oink, oink, they are so adorable! You can adopt your own at The Chapter Four this month. :)
My jeans are Shai and my hair is Analog Dog, both I am OBSESSED with. Love them! I also love my Amitomo waist shirt, which you get with and without the amazing dress that I’ll try to post about soon. Also, get the color change HUD for it…totally worth the extra lindens, imho.
The rest is older and loved, because recycling your clothing in both lives is the only thing that makes sense to me. Muah! xo, Abra
Loving me some bright tights right now…my own way of personally rebelling from the cold that’s creeping into the air. Bah! For serious, tights are the way though…they are so fun and a great way to add a little pop of color to your day. These are from kDm and I got the whole fatpack for, I think, like $100L or something equally ridiculous. (re: So. Cheap.)
My top and skirt are The Secret Store for Collabor88 this month. Loving me some peplum and a color block jumper. <3
And the hair, the hair, the hair…Beusy is doing an amazing job at cool, offbeat hairstyles and this one is no exception. It’s perfection in my eyes.
You know I love my Birdy skin to the ends of the Earth, so it takes a lot for me to wear a different skin in a look. Loving the sweet face on this Chickadee skin. It’s so good I (almost) am comfortable without my beloved Birdy on.
And one more shout out…this Zenith bag. They are too good, love this shop! Enjoy! XO, Abra
Hi my loves, my gosh it’s been a minute since I’ve done a full look here. I’ve been truly busy IRL, but also I’ve been posting it up over on my flickr stream! So if you are ever missing my posts, follow me over there for more style goodness.
Well this look now! I’m excited about this look. Bye, bye Summer, hello Autumn! First off, I have Pixicat’s Autumn Jacket & Biker Pants (pur.luv) - loving the sherpa-over-leather look. It’s warm, while still maintaining it’s edge. Next, I have Foxes bustier and boots - OH MY GOSH! Like hello! I’ve been waiting for this brand’s first release since Nina and Tyr announced it back in August. If you’re a fan of Birdy & Alchemy (and who isn’t, you know? they’re soo good) then you will love Foxes. And lastly, I have Olive’s rocking hair - this brand makes some of my most favorite, most fun hair colors in SL. Just everything you can think of: crazy neon dip-dyes, rainbow ombre, brights, and interesting subtle dyes. I love this one, it’s a white/beige ombre and it’s perfect…interesting while still being quiet and not demanding to take the whole show. Get this hair at Kustom9!
I have so much more goodness on the way, so stick with me OK? xo, Abra
First in a series…because Monday’s need to be more fun. The beautiful people who are inspiring me so like hardcore on SL.
More people I adore on my ever-expanding link list.>
Loving this jumpsuit/dress/Bjork costume from Vita’s Boudoir. I mean this in the best possible way when I say I feel like a jellyfish right this minute: glowing, ethereal, mysterious…immortal??
And I must mention Lamb’s hair, a shop I love and even more so now that the new “unicorn” colors are out. They are soo pretty. And just as much love to Buzzeri’s new Talia brows. Both are soo good. XO, Abra
Feeling like a princess in this regal Pixicat gown, which is a prize at Enchantment. I paired it with OMEN’s crown, which is a past Enchantment prize. You must check out this event, the prizes are amazing! XO, Abra
Coming at you with a simple outfit, inspired by Mikunch’s sweet puppy ‘fro shirt. What a fun and strange graphical print = my fav! You can get yours at Kustom9 this month.
Also loving Fashionably Dead’s hair (from Hair Fair, now in store) and Reign’s heels (buy them now, for an Enchanted event stamp card!)
Muahs! XO, Abra
Feeling sassy & playful today. Loving this Gato skirt currently @ The Attic this month. It’s a picnic blanket with ants all over it! Gosh, I just love cheeky prints. Get a 3 skirt fatty pack for $95L. Woots.
To round out the outfit, I had to add a little more plaid in the form of Shai’s sheer top. I love pattern play, and the way the sheer plaid and cheery gingham combine = double happiness.
I’ve loved this Chemistry ‘do called “Buttons” since I came back from my lil SL hiatus. Why it’s taken me this long to blog it, well, I don’t know! Sometimes it takes a while.
Also a shout out to Blowpop, who’s owned the title of my favorite fishnets in SL since 2009. They are that well made! Now if only Annyka would return long enough to create appliers for all her items. Including her lingerie, which is also some of my favorite to this day. Enjoy! XO, Abra
Needing to feel like a badass and Pixicat comes through with the forest warrior girl look I need. I feel strong! Get your awesome pants @ We <3 RP this month! (The top is from a past We <3 RP & is now in the store!) XO, Abra
Feeling all summery and feminine in this Offbeat kimono from the Okinawa Festival! Also…I lucked out and got a rare…this never happens to me!
Forgot how much I love this Devol tattoo that I have had for ages - yay for vintage!
How much floral is enough floral? I can’t get enough. ;-) Also…loving this delicate golden jewelry from Amaya, Zaara, Amala, Omen…so lovely. XO, Abra
Hi my loves, back from the reel wurld. Life’s been busy, but I always have time for YOU and styling- you know that!! (I don’t know why I’m talking like this, let’s just go with it ok?)
I’m coming at U with a fresh & green look. To me, green means fresh, growth, renewal, positive energy…I just love the color green. The inspiration behind this look was totally the Pixicat top for Uber! You need to check out this event for the top, and for so many other cute items. Dangerous on the pocketbook but so worth it, you know.
Building around the top, I had a few thoughts before going OH YEAH, THAT TUTU! I’m talking about the one Nylon Outfitters put out in the spring for Collabor88. It’s all silky and femme and has the best drape to it. It just looks soft, you know? I like skirts that drape well, and in SL I’m extra particular about them. This one has it.
These shoes, doe. I have been wanting to post about my Muka ballet flats since I scored on the black ones at OMGatcha a while back. (FYI…I will never tire of black shoes, ever, ever, ever in either life.) For all you “old” *ahem* vintage avis out there…you’ll remember DeLa’s ballet flats that were similar to these back in about 2009 or so. I’ve been wanting a mesh pair since it (mesh) became a thing…ballet flats with the wrap around ankle ribbon. Seriously I could never tire of this style: it’s timeless in my eyes no matter what’s trendy. Muka aced it with this version- love them! (And you can wear the flats without the ribbon, but srsly why would you??)
Ok, so many words, so little time. So much more I could say, but I’ll leave you with a kiss, a hug, a hi5, and a see ya reeeeeal soon. XO, Abra
I’m loving this Offbeat dress from Kustom 9 & these jelly (!!!) sandals by Amala (from The Chapter Four). Girly cute items with some interest to them.
And I am wearing a new Birdy skin! It’s from The Secret Affair and it is soft and dreamy…everything we have come to love about Nina’s skins.
The last thing I must mention. My Wasabi Pills hair. I can’t get enough of this hair brand. There aren’t any spectacular ombre colors, or wild fly-away hairs…just simple, pretty, well done hair. And it really adds a clean finish to any outfit. I just love them! XO, Abra
