First up is a sexy black dress perfect for those not-quite spring, almost-finished with winter days. You know the ones, the “can I just see a little speck of green” days, right? Well, even if you don’t, the dress is still hot 😉

Hello Hello Fashonistas!

Heather Connolly, owner of [Astraia] (formerly .hc&co.) was kind enough to drop me some of her new items! I also, prior to receiving this, got myself some [Astraia] swag, which I figured I’d feature along with the review pack she sent me! She actually sent me quite a bit of items, which will definitely be featured in later La Familia Posts. Anywho, enough with my meaningless rambling. On with the fashion!

This cute set is called [Astraia] Stripes Set, and comes in blue (pictured), pink, orange, yellow, purple and green! It also comes with super cute leggings, which are unfortunately, not pictured! But they’re cute, trust me. 🙂 The top itself is available in shirt, jacket, as well as undershirt and underpants layers for a tucked in look! I personally love showing off my tummy, so I wore the top in the shirt layer.

The set also comes with the denim skirt, as well as an adorable pair of flats! Check them out:

Adorable, right? I thought so. Plus, for this entire set, it only costs 200L! That’s the top, leggings, denim skirt, AND shoes! It can’t really get much better than that.

Also, it occurs to me that I could have photographed the leggings along with the shoes…but oh well. Please forgive me, fashionistas. I will get it right next time!

I also got this super hot valentines day tank in the pack, which comes in two versions! One has a purple and white gradient while the other goes from light to dark purple. The set also came with an adorable pair of purple jeans, pictured below along with the second gradient tank.

These items are being featured in the Valentine’s Bazaar, which starts Feb 1st! You can only get them there, so make sure you grab the LM once it comes out!


Finally, I had to show you the cardigan I got at their Starlust location! It is also available at the mainstore, so make sure to check out both of them!

The cardigan comes in cherry, coffee, palm, ocean (pictured), storm, and charcoal. It even has a prim that attaches in the back to make the sweater look more full. It’s well placed, so no need to worry about a giant prim sticking out of your ass, I promise! 🙂

That’s all I have for you all for now! Check out [Astraia] today! You won’t regret it.

xoxo


I’ve been a huge fan of Glitterati’s poses for a while now. My office even looks like Glitterati threw up in there :P. Being a store owner, I’m obsessed with poses, but especially ones that I can use to show off my newest clothes! I’m super excited about the newest pose set from Glitterati! Katey Coppola of Glitterati has released TWO new variations of her old pose set “headshot”.

Headshot 2 will be available as a part of SL Daily Deals at a super-reduced price on Thursday January 28th at Midnight! It is, however, available now at Glitterati! Better hurry though! It’s only available until the SL Daily Deals!

I’m super excited about the whole body movement in this pose set.  Her first version of headshots are soley for close ups–but this one is totally different!  Katey’s used the whole body to create really cool body angels and awesome head shot poses–that can also be used for showing off clothes! 

Another thing I love about the poses are the subtle differences in some of them…the same pose with a clenched fist or one finger only.  It makes for some great variation!  Overall, I think they’re FAB, and I can’t wait to use them again!

Get the look:

Skin: LAQ-Blondie 04-Peach

Hair: Truth-Audrey-Mirage

Dress: Alexohol Fashions-Toasted Dress-Pink

Eyes: Regrave-Leticica-cyan

Tattoo: Dangerous Cinsations-Tropical Tatto, Available free until 2/15 as part of the Heat Wave Hunt (Start the HWH Here)

Shoes: BG-Amanda-Negro


Sanura Snowpaw of *Dreams* They Do Come True was kind enough to drop me a review packet FILLED with her latest releases in so many colors that I literally fainted. Seriously. I would have a pic of my unconscious avatar, but I figured that that would be a tad inappropriate. Anywho, the first part of the gift contained her new cropped knit sweaters, which comes in a variety of colors! All colors are shown here, because frankly, that is how much I love you guys. Well that, and all of them are tres, tres yummy. True story.



Poses: Esme for (pda) myth.takes (Haiti Relief Item available at the Scribble sim)

How cute are they? They come in shirt, jacket, and underwear layers for easy styling. I love how Sanura has both dark and light colors, which is perfect for pretty much any mood you happen to be in. I set up a complete look of the day (sort of) based around it. It’s pretty casual, perfect for hanging out with friends or even hopping around the grid.

Hair: >TRUTH< Audrey – Blacks and Whites
Sweater: *Dreams* Cropped Knit Sweater {White}
Jeans: *League* Garage Jeans – Cool Blue
Tattoos: >>Moloko<< Stars and Swallows
Shoes: *Redgrave* Girls Biker Boots -Black-
Pose: Striking Poses – Stank in the Tank (formerly Janet Jackson pose set)

And if that isn’t enough to make you love dreams, check this out:

They also have cute bow tanks available in a myriad of colors! 🙂 Okay, I know I only posted three of them here, but that’s kind of what happens when you fap and blog at the same time! Trust me, the colors are AH-MAZE-ING!

Visit *Dreams* Today!

Until next time, blogites!

Hello Hello Fashionistas!

I am back and with more previews of just some of the swag (clothing wise, anyway) that you can get at the Heat Wave Hunt! It started earlier today and runs until Feb 15th, so you have plenty of time to snag these awesome gifts!

One of my favorite from the hunt is this cute outfit from Ali Couture! The silver top and skirt are perfect both together and apart for easy mixing with other items in your inventory! The texturing on the top is incredible, and looks very realistic! It’s perfect if you’re going out with your girls or just want to look a little naughty. 😉

How cute is this bikini from Kastle Rock Couture?! The second I put it on my av, I was totally tempted to hit the beach and engage myself in some serious water sports. I love how the bikini even looks like water! Well done, Kastle Rock!

So, I HAD to bust out my Glitterati Garage pose set for some of these, because not only is it great for photos, it definitely brings something extra to the clothes! This gift from OHARA Street Designs is definitely one of my favorites. I love how the tee looks worn, yet the graphic on it looks fresh. Plus, how often can you go around looking like a walking jack-in-the-box?

DYN Clothing’s Skullie dress is definitely going to be rotated frequently into my wardrobe! I’ve always liked mini-dresses, especially with an alternative edge. So when I unboxed this, you can imagine how excited I was! This gift also comes with an awesome pair of ripped white leggings if you’re looking to make the dress even more original!

Now, I’m not gonna lie, the sun from iPoke is a little hard to find! But, once you do, you’re going to love the piercings! There is also one available for men as well, so don’t worry about being left out guys!

So aside from having the coolest store name (aside from Insatiable Fashions of course 😉 ), Ducknipple also has some pretty sweet apparel. I’m definitely going back there for a second look after receiving this wonderful hoodie! Both stylish and cozy, it’s great for beating the winter blues!

Finally, here’s something a little different from the hunt:

This bathtub from Cheeky Pea is one of the many furniture/home items you can get in the hunt! It comes with both single and couples poses, and even has a working faucet that you can turn off/on with a simple touch! A must have for those long days in SL or even RL!

Whew. That’s all I got for you for now! Stay tuned for part 3, which will feature more clothing, as well as home items all from the Heat Wave Hunt!

Enjoy!

xoxo
