Review: PACADI Jasha

31 10 2009

PACADI Jasha reopened this week with their new fall collection and a new build. I must admit that I’d never heard of the store before a notice announcing the Fall Collection went out to the iheartsl blogger’s group this past weekend.  I decided to check it out while I had a bit of free time and was pleasantly surprised to find both Lotta Shelman and Julia Tower there as I looked around.  They were putting a few finishing touches out for the reopening, and I really enjoyed their new space.  Things are organized into different buildings, so finding what you’re looking is fairly easy.  Lotta and Julia, co-owners of the PACADI Jasha brand and the designers behind the fantastic clothing and jewelry, were kind enough to gift me with some review copies of the things that I liked.  I’ll show you some of what I picked out.
The first thing I had to have with this Striped Long Sleeve shirt in blue.

::Emjay:: Sash Tops – A Night Out

16 09 2009

Magen Jigsaw of ::Emjay:: was kind enough to send over a fatpack of her newest release: the Sash tops.  I was so excited when I saw the photo of this incredibly cute yet sexy top, I IM’d her right away to tell her so.  I couldn’t wait to try them on, and I was not disappointed.  Magen continues to get better with each release she puts out.  I absolutely love everything about this shirt: the asymentry of the hem, the way it wraps around the neck and leaves the shoulders bare and the lovely textured band underneath the bustline.  The Sash top is cute, yet sexy; feminine and flirty.  It’s form-fitting without really showing a lot of skin.  That is the best kind of sexy, don’t you think?  Shirts that make the imagination wander just a bit.
The ::Emjay:: Sash Tops come in seven different colors, and, being the adventurous sort, I thought I’d try to come up with a look for each color option.  I wanted to do this, mostly, to show you how versatile the tops can be and will be breaking my posts up accordingly.  Now, the top does come in Olive, and those of you who read this blog know that I don’t wear green.  The jury is still out on whether or not I’ll be able to pull something together for that one, but for today I will show you the first two looks I put together.
My favorite of the entire fatpack is the White shirt.

Cocktails, Anyone?

8 09 2009

Since buying the fatpack of the Shanti shoes by Maitreya Gold, I’ve decided to try to come up with an outfit for every single color in said fatpack, even the ones I would not normally wear.  A lofty goal, perhaps, but as I am ruined for regular avatar feet now, I don’t see me taking these off for a while.  Why not play around with variety then?  It is what this blog is about, after all.  For today’s look, I started with the Shanti shoes in Cerulean.
I love the color Cerulean, and the word is just fun to say really.  For this pair of the Shanti shoes, I wanted something elegant but not too formal.  A little cocktail dress that was glamourous and sexy, but not over the top. The Soft Ruffle Dress from Baiastice turned out to be the perfect match.

Review – Isabel by Insolence

7 09 2009

It has been well established that my love of lingerie knows no bounds, so it should not come as a shock to learn how excited I get when I see an offline inventory offer from Camilla Yosuke of Insolence.  It is one of the few times I feel like I am in a rush to get home and log in so I can see the wonderful newness she has created.  The newest set, Isabel, does not disappoint. In fact, I will go so far as to say I think this is one of her best pieces.

If The Shoe Fits…

3 09 2009

golds_005 copy

buy it in every color!  I love that quote, and I certainly did buy every color of the new Maitreya Gold Shanti shoes via the fatpack option.  I did think about it for a day or two, because I’ve never spent that many lindens on anything in all of my second life.  But when I figured out how much I’d be saving via the fatpack option, I clicked buy, and the rest, as they say,  is history. 
Words cannot express how much I adore these shoes.  They are incredible.  My very first foray into prim toes, and I’m totally hooked.  The HUD is super easy to use and comes with all kinds of options for skin matching and toenail polish colors.  I really had no trouble matching my skin tone.  What’s even better is that it comes with five spaces you can save settings on, in case you have several skins you like to wear.  Me, I seem to stick with ::Exodi::.
Yes, I adore these shoes more than an avatar should, but I can’t take them off.  All I do is switch colors and change the nail polish option with each outfit. Speaking of outfits, I did come up with a super casual, yet chic summery look to go with my new shoes.
