Riddle Me This, Part Two  

Friday, September 26, 2008

How many looks can you create with just one outfit from Riddle?

Well, my answer is three but I'm sure you guys can come up with even more.

Last time I posted, I showed you some of the fabulous stuff from Riddle that I just adore. I don't normally do two posts on one store right in a row, but I wanted to show you how much fun I had creating different looks with the Plaid Short Set from Riddle. I did buy it in two colours, and I do mix and match them once, but even if you only buy one color I think you can change the look of this set dramatically just by what you pair with it.

For the first look, I decided I wanted to try to go couture with these pants, and there's no better way to achieve that than mixing and matching. I took the top from one of my Sexy Business Wear outfits, Manhattan by Mischief, and added it to the Red Plaid Shorts from Riddle. The Tamara shoes from ZHAO give the outfit a certain high-end sex appeal, and the necklace from Viva La Glam and the handbag from BAX Boots tie it all together. Prepster cute is what my friend Rhodesy called this look, and I have to agree. The perfect outfit for a day of shopping, maybe even a lunch date, or even walking the catwalk.
For the next two looks and model info, click the jump.

For my second look, I decided to do something a bit edgy and a bit punk. No surprise there, I know. I mixed and matched the outfits, choosing the top from the red set and pairing it with the bottoms from the Grey set. I added the WRONG Basic Boots for attitude, and the Aleah hair from ETD gave it that sharp edge I was going for. Add the Apnea Tattoos from Sn@tch (based on the rl tats of my favorite Fetish Model in RL) and some interesting jewelry, and you have punk rock chic.

The last look I created is probably my favorite, though it won't be for everyone. I had just been to see a concert by my favorite Goth band in RL, and was feeling that a bit of CyberGoth might be in order. So, I took the Red Plaid Set, added the WRONG Basic Boots, some tattoos and interesting piercings, and then put on my Restless Punk Hair from Goth1c0 to achieve that CyberGoth look I was longing for. I also did something I don't normally do, and changed my eyes. The Shine Purple Sage Eyes really changed the entire look. Funny how the right set of eyes can sometimes make an outfit go from nice to wow. Aren't these gorgeous? I love the combination of green and purple.


So there you are...three different looks from one fabulous outfit, even if I did use two different colors. Now, how many can you come up with?

Well let me tell you what, I liked it. I liked it so much I about bought more stuff from this one store than any single store in SL. I could not believe the casual fashions and looks at Emery.

Emery is a fantastic store, nicely laid out, feels like you in an upscale downtown store. The selection is of the casual nature but some of the sweaters can be used as nice dress up outfits also.

The prices are right where you want them also. So take the time to drop by and check them out.
And on a side note the yacht in the post today is from Cigar yachts. They are the most detailed yachts in SL hands down. You really feel like your on you own yacht. And there drivable also so you can Cruise in style while everyone else in those little stiff boats. Even the show room is upscale you feel like someone at any minute is going to hand you a glass of champagne while your shopping for your yacht.

Riddle Me This  

Sunday, September 21, 2008

Last week, while scrolling through Iheartsl.com, I saw an ad for a limited edition outfit by Riddle. It was made specifically for the Harajuku Fair and was only available for a few days. The outfit, called {After} School Days, was very cute and a little unusual...unusual enough to make me curious to see what else Riddle had to offer. So, of course, I dropped everything and teleported over there.

I was quite impressed. This fun, quirky store has a little bit of everything, and the prices are VERY reasonable. Don't forget to grab some Cotton Candy on the way in. You'll be there awhile so snacking is not a bad idea. Plus, it makes for cute photos.

The designer, Chrystina Noel, is willing to give us bloggers an outfit to review, so I contacted her and asked for the {After} School Days. She was quite nice, and I enjoyed talking with her. Once I had the outfit in my inventory, I couldn't wait to get back to the studio and try it on.

Now, we all know how it is...sometimes you fall in love with something "on the rack" but when you get it home and try it on, you're left feeling a bit let down. Sometimes the quality isn't what you'd hoped for or it's just not flattering to your shape. But then there are the good times, when you get it home, put it on, and the quality is even better than you thought it was going to be. Such is the case with Riddle.


{After} School Days comes with a ton of different options. Three sleeve lengths for the shirt and two different jumper styles. You could wear just the skirt of the jumper if you wanted. You can wear it with or without the tie, or with or without the leg warmers. Depending upon how you piece this outfit together, the look can be anything from casual to office chic. There's more after the jump.

I chose a more office chic look with the 3/4 quarter inch sleeves, the collar with skull tie, and the skully jumper. (I do love my skulls.) Forgoeing the leg warmers and adding the ZHAO Xinful Boots gave the outfit just the right touch of sexiness.

After trying on {After} School Days, I went back to Riddle to see what else jumped out at me. And the first thing I saw was this Argyle Sweater Dress. If you've picked up anything about my style from reading this blog, you're probably shaking your head in confusion right now.
Arcadia? Argyle? Sweater Dress?

Nooooooo.

You'd be right. I don't generally like Argyle or sweaters, let alone a whole dress made out of it. But this one....this one has skulls!

Cute little skulls in the diamonds of the top. I just...I could not resist it. I tried. I really did! But it called my name so loudly that I gave in and bought it. And then, promptly teleported to Princeton University's SIM to snap some photos.


It's so adorable! I love it. LOVE IT! It's cute, sassy, and my inner goth is thrilled with the tiny skulls. I bought it in red and black, of course, but it comes in four different color combinations. This dress is perfect for those first few months of Autumn when it's not too cold, but not hot either. Another thing I bought at Riddle, which I paired with this outfit, is the Tintable Cableknit Stocking Set. It comes with knee socks, thigh highs, and full tights. The texture is amazing, and--you ready--that's right..tintable! I love it when I can change the color of things. For 120L, that's a steal!

I bought somthing else at Riddle, but you'll have to stay tuned to part two of my "Riddle Me This" post to see what that is. I'm going to show you how versatile the clothing at Riddle is by taking this one outfit and making three different looks out of it. Look for that in a few days.

Armdidi....The Girls Side of The Story!  

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Armidi has always been one of my favorite stores her in SL and I can't believe I haven't done a full post on it yet. So when I saw Payten do his guys side, I thought it necessary to the do the girls side of the story. See what that is after the jump.
Armidi has got anything fashion that any avi may want. From hair, eyes and nails to lingerie and underwear. The clothing lines range from casual, sexy/hot to glamorous. Armidi Limited is the casual yet funky side where you can find tshirts, jeans, tunic dresses and sunglasses. Gisaci has hi-class sexy shoes, boots and accessories. They also do the exquisite dresses at the top of the hill. Elephant Outfitters is another branch of Armidi and they do the preppy, casual shirts and pants/shorts.
No matter where it is in Armidi, you will find something no matter what your likes. I love the detail and that everything always fits. Also, their clothing is done in layers so that you can wear them in layers with other outfits and still look hip and in style.

Mischief Managed  

Sunday, September 14, 2008

I know, I know...I've blogged about Mischief before. But that was all about their "Sexy Business Wear", and this is not.

Jani Marlowe decided to change her group to a Subscribe-o-matic group, which makes it easier for her I bet, and frees up groups for we loyal fans, since the Lindens are stingy with the group slots. In honor of the switch, every person that signs up for the Mischief subscribe-o-matic group gets an exclusive free gift: Bring It.








One of the things I love the most about Mischief is the creative naming that goes into each outfit. Half the fun of shopping there is seeing the names of the outfit on the wall that grabs your eye and then giggling when you read it. I have mentioned my love for "Sexy Business Wear" before, but Janie Marlowe also does Clubwear very well. The outfits are always sexy and sassy - perfect for going dancing at your favorite nightclub - and this gift outfit is no exception. I really love the skirt on this one. And the detail in the texture is lovely as always, check out the row of buttons on the top and on the waistband of the skirt.

Click the jump for more photos and outfits from Mischief!






It comes with knee socks, but I chose to go with bare legs and my Maitreya Virtue shoes. Minimal jewelry for this outfit though, sometimes simple is the best.






While I was at the store joining the subscribe-o-matic, one of the new releases caught my eye. It's called Dream On, and it's similar in style to Bring It, but still unique. I love the lace band around the bottom of the top and the top of the skirt.







I also love how the back of the shirt is all lace. Very sexy.





I paired this one with some great jewelry, a group gift necklace from Alienbear, the slave rings from Bastchild, and the ruby belly piercing from SUS. For shoes, I chose the Mimmi shoes from Storm Schmooz because this skirt just screamed strappy black heels to me.



All this talking about Mischief's Clubwear got me thinking about my very first Mischief outfit, Maxim. So, of course, I had to put it on to go out today. I just love this outfit. I don't get to wear it often enough.



I love the sheer top and the cute little plaid skirt. The best part is probably the straps for garter belts that match the suspender straps on the top.



I paired this with my Basic Boots from WRONG because they are fabulous and very ME.



So now that you know Mischief does Sexy Business Wear AND Clubwear very well, run over, click the subscribe-o-matic, and then you too can "Bring It" the next time you go out.

I am so sorry to all my friends that I have sent the lm to and they have told me that they have taken out second mortgages after shopping at :Bijou. Thanks alot Tati for giving me the hint on this hip and so modern shop. When you tp in you see vibrant colors and omg awesome outfits everywhere. I want one of each...hehe. I bought this red applique wrap shirt that is sheer and oh so delicate that comes with the pin stripe gauchos that I absolutely adore. The other choice you have is a bra or undershirt depending on what mood your in (or how much skin you want to show :)). I seriously wandered around this store forever wanting every single thing in it but was low on lindens at the time and wanted to pick out just one more outfit. When I passed by this very chick two piece skirt ensemble, I had to have it. Of course, you can wear it in the summer heat without the arm warmers but don't they just add to the outfit? All I have to say is awesome design....WOW! I will be back there tomorrow...hehe! See more pics and info after the jump.

Armidi......'nuff said  

Wednesday, September 10, 2008


Hey there its me again. I know I keep coming back like a case of heartburn. It hurts but you keep coming back for more even if it does. I have had Armidi clothes in my inventory since they opened so what a better place to post on. Armidi is not just for the ladies, us guys can get some very nice, hip, and stylish clothes there to. I know there have been tons of posts on this store but not from the guys point of view. So lets take a look at Armidi.





OK with the good comes the bad its a force of nature that cant be avoided. LAG. just be prepared. But once your up and moving its like being in a fashion super center. Every building holds something new. So check them all out and be ready to get lost. When you do find what your looking for you will like the selection. Whether its shirts, pants, or accessories you will find what your looking for there.

For The Love of ZHAO  

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

When I attented the opening of the Alphamale & Blacklace SIM a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet Melanie ZHAO of ZHAO Shoe fame. It was a thrill for me because I've always admired her work. ZHAO Shoes were my first love in Second Life (as far as shoes go, anyway) and I often find myself searching through my inventory for a pair of ZHAO's to complete an outfit.

Melanie was nice enough to gift me with her newest releases, and I thought I'd blog about a particularly fun pair tonight. Usually when I'm creating a look, I start at the top and work my way down but not tonight. Tonight, I started with the shoes. These shoes:

SHY

Talk about a fun pair of sexy shoes! I love the metal accents all over these open-toed heels. The best part is the gold lock on the back of the ankle that holds the straps together; a very creative touch.


These shoes are sassy and sexy. I rummaged through my inventory for quite some time trying to figure out exactly what to wear with them. I was just about to give up when something occurred to me. Since ZHAO's were my first love where shoes were concerned, why not pair it with something from my first love in clothing: Last Call.

To see the outfit I put together, click the jump.


I chose the Femme Fatale dress from Last Call to pair with the Shy shoes from ZHAO for several reasons. No, it's not just because wearing a dress called Femme Fatale with shoes called Shy is funny. Cause it is. However, I love the flirty hemline of this skirt and the openness of the top. The Jackie hair from ETD in Purple was the finishing touch, mainly because I don't get to wear this purple one very often, but also because I wanted something feminine and sexy that still showed off my eyes and the fabulous eye makeup on this skin.



Fun.
Sexy.
Sassy.
Chic.
ZHAO!
