Muffler and Corsage Cloche (color change) in Pink, both by *DP* YumYum.

Just a midweek mini-post on a few budget and freebie finds. I noted a pair of boots on a Harajukubox shopper and found out that the store, LINE by zippir Kayo, is having a 50% off sale on all items throughout the month. I picked up this boot and two bags at half-off, as well as a couple of legwarmers for L$40L each. The boots are adorned with a pair of fuzzy pompoms on each sock upper and very cute; note that the highlights are very sharp and bright, if you prefer more muted shading in your textures. Be sure to check the permissions of what you are purchasing as some of the items differ in that respect – the legwarmers are no mod, but zippir is very accomodating and will supply a mod version on request. There are a great many shoes here that would be suitable for newbies on a budget, including some men’s cowboy boots that would work on a female avatar – sale prices range from L$25-L$175. There are also some Chucks in the store’s camping chairs. (more photos under the cut)

*DP* YumYum has always been one of my favourite stores, though I haven’t blogged them in a while. Designer toraji Voom has set out three lucky chair prizes. I was fortunate enough to get all three, and glad I did, as they are well worth the wait. The muffler is a pink version of the recently released bow mufflers in-store, and the cloche hat can change colours to three shades of pink. It also comes with hair and without.

Thanksgiving and Inclement Weather

Posted by Caliah Lyon on November 28, 2008

Thanksgiving and Inclement Weather 
A five-minute shot at the Rainy Town / Creamshop sim, which was difficult to take as there were avatars there almost all the time. I’m aware this is my first post in a while, but I couldn’t help but blog this, which I wore to the ice skating party at Oubliette earlier this week (a great time was had by all, thank you Saiyge and Whimsy). I’ve been out of touch with both shopping and new sights and sims, so Koinup’s Top Ten at New World Notes was very useful in seeking out the beautiful new sims that have sprung up in my absence. I also took this opportunity to post as I’ll be busy again before the week is up and won’t likely have the chance.

 Thanksgiving and Inclement Weather Thanksgiving and Inclement Weather
While I don’t normally wear plaid these sculpted coats from Cachet fit the occasion perfectly. They come in six colours and two options (with or without an AO, a good idea in case you don’t have an animation set that fits narrow or rigid prim clothing). Warmly bundled in one of Zaara’s lovely pashmina shawls (tinted, it worked well over plaid) I only had a few minutes to wear these chic leather boots with cozy sock uppers from Aura before I had to trade them in for ice skates. The boots themselves may show a bit of foot but they are mod, so you can fit or add invisiprims as needed. Altogether a simple outfit for the season – look for the coats to be released in the coming week or the next. The boots are available only on SLEX last I checked, though another version (with different uppers) is available at the Aura mainstore. ^^

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones, and thank you for all the support you’ve shown us over the past year. 🙂

Shopping Information:
Lala Coat in Plum (with AO) by Cachet, to be released
Sculpted Pretty Autumn Boots by Aura (Mapycr Roffo, available only on SLEXchange/XstreetSL), $450

Silver Pied

 Oops! Here I am again. It seems my leisure time two days in a row has been doing style posts with Paper Couture as inspiration. All I have to do is accessorize (since the outfits are whole) and think of ways how I can rock the new couture.

Let’s talk about this outfit. Eye pattern on the jacket (consistent in the whole collection) with humble hues for a man. Brilliant. Deep sexy v-neck slightly sheer grey shirt. Perfect. I tighten the loose pants (normally white) and tint them cream color to balance my gold hair. Muism scarf can practically be worn with anything but fits into this outfit since its simple and not too fluffy. White sneakers from Detour keep the outfit hip and young. Muse wrist watch and pearl earrings for a touch of luxury. You know, speaking of, I was reading about pearls on a forum on the web and some jewelers and stylists were debating if there was a place for pearls in mens fashion in the future. Maybe, maybe not, but I took this info as fashion forward and tried it out.

I couldnt decide on the angelic look or the modern white knight look so I decided to do both with Illusions (Siyu Suen) gorgeous sculpted wings along with G-Fields equally gorgeous sculpted roses. The rose is my sword and my white stallion the stretch limo (not shown). Cheers!

Leather Scales

Lucas Lameth – Style Diary (10.08)

Hi! It’s been a while since I posted here. I’ve been engulfed in personal projects and store related styling to really commit to my personal style. Although I think it’s a good idea to get back to these posts since it’s fun and relaxing. I missed you guys!

The new long awaited Paper Couture Fall Collection ’08 has finally been released and like always it was well worth the wait. I wouldn’t have known without Caliah tipping me off and teleporting me as a crowd of fashionistas (and a few fashionistos) chirped with glee. This Leather Scales outfit from P.C is stylish and sleek. All the couture without too much flamboyancy and just the right dose of testosterone. However I couldn’t help but buy the Everbloom Ring. As a jeweler, the shinies captivate me! What can I say? I love it and you will too.

apple monkey artist

Posted by Lucas Lameth on May 17, 2008

Mm. I got lost exploring the Japanese sims again. My favorite place to browse is creators pavilion sim. This time I found a store called Last Ride (where I bought my apple shirt) and its totally awesome. An equal inventory for men and women for a small store and really cute stuff. If i were a girl I would totally rape it. So check it out gals! Oh, and creators pavillion is having a sale, so it’s a good time to stop by.

I love browsing ETD and finding hair that makes me want to yell “UNISEX!”. There are some hair stores struggling to make long mens hair but really, honestly failing miserably. The mens long hair they make and sell is so ugly and feminine even the romance book fabio men will spit on them. Thankfully, elikapika (who is currently MIA because of computer issues or something) makes nice long hair that I secretly wear as a man. This one is called “Deidra” but lets call it “Deidro”. Its my new favorite long hairstyle. Wee!

I followed a link on the fashion feed to this watch and was so happy it came in a simple black. How often do you come across fashionably acceptable mens accessories? ALMOST NEVER. So this watch is a catch. Exploring the sim appropriately named “Ganesha” (beloved elephant deity) I stumbled on a cute store called Lovecraft where I found this CUTE monkey bag! They also had this nice red plaid backpack but hmm… plaid backpack vs. monkey backpack. Sorry plaid but you’ll have to wait.

I tried tried tried hard not to include any Armidi today. Not because we don’t love Armidi but because they are the obvious fashion power house who really has everything. — I ended up caving in and investing in these awesome emo stiched pants which are slightly different from my chino’s I have from them. Also I picked up  these cherry red shades from them a while back and was happy it worked out with today’s outfit.

Ofcourse everyone knows Shiny Things signature Painters Shoes. If you dont you should. Because 1) They’re awesome 2) They’re Free 3) They’re awesome

Well, that’s a wrap. Ciao lovelies!

Style Diary: Lucas Lameth

Posted by Lucas Lameth on May 4, 2008

Style Diary

So I have a boot addiction. I saw these awesome rain boots on the fashion feed and decided I needed them no matter what. The boots were the inspiration for this outfit and everything just kind of worked along. I’d post pictures of me naked wearing just the boots but I’m not sure if that meets the fashion standard of this blog.

I bumped into one of my fashion clad male buddies who usually sports eccentric colorful wear like a good NY hipster. He was wearing ‘Random Industries’ brand by Garbage Prototype clothing and I fell in-love. I usually avoid Random like most photosource clothing but boy-oh-boy when style is concerned Random has it all packed down to the cheesecake. I spend a good dish of lindens there today but am most pleased to sport this striped-t with vest. It’s artsy-fartsy and super sexy which was exactly the look I was going for. The awesome tie, which apparently is decked with skulls just like my boots is from The Good Life. The high detailed cuffs are my favorites which I always whip out when Im feeling a bit hipster-grunge you can also find at The Good Life. And what a Good Life it is indeed.

There isnt a lot of hair that matches my new Laqroki skin and shape combo so I was pleased to find this simple artsy hairstyle from Truth. That man is whipping up quite an amazing batch of hair for men and women. I think the greater half of his store is now hair. Which means you should drop by and get a new do.

In Equal Measure

Posted by Caliah Lyon on February 14, 2008

My Valentine’s Day finds, and this week’s events

Sculpted Hat with Birds, free Valentine’s gift from Happy Mood. 

While I’d recovered from the flu fairly recently, my periods of fatigue seem to have only increased (common, I’m told, after being ill). On top of which my beloved (and new) laser mouse decided to develop a bad case of drift, making it impossible to even rotate a large item I’d rezzed. I rely on this mouse’s sensitivity for finer control over my primwork, so you can imagine how much of a setback this is.

Fortunately, this past week, in which we’ve been quite thoroughly spoiled by the grid-wide Valentine hunts and gifts being so freely given in all the update groups, seemed one for as much good as it was for the bad. Firstly I was invited to become the editor of Glam SL Magazine, and had the honour of modelling in the magazine launch fashion show for Ghost, Muism, Leezu Baxter, Nicky Ree, Paper Couture, and Cachet. In my opinion this was one of the most well-produced shows I’ve modelled in. It was an opportunity to work with folks like Tamara Kirshner and Miko Omegamu, and the drive of everyone involved was nothing short of inspiring. I’m looking forward to what I can contribute to the magazine, and have already begun work on next month’s issue, which I promise you will be worth the wait.

 
 

The new home of Fleur, formerly Tete a Pied skins, opened with a Casino Royale-themed party next to Nicky Ree’s Tropical Orchid sim. CJ has done wonders with the build, which I recognised from the interior as being a beautiful re-creation of the world-famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore, and I only regret that I was late to the party. There was much banter and a roulette table, and the partygoers won gift cards for both Fleur and Nicky Ree. Of their new Shoujo skin line my favourite has to be the one inspired by Isabella from Paradise Kiss – you’ll know which if you’ve watched the series 🙂

As for Valentine’s gifts, you won’t want to miss out on some of the offerings from smaller boutiques that aren’t on any of the feeds. From the items that have been blogged elsewhere, I liked the gifts from Celestial Studios’ group, Veschi in the La Reina hunt, as well as the Alchemy dress (still available until the 14th at Alchemy).

Happy Mood is best known for its adorable sculpted pets (especially its cuddle rabbits) and its whimsically decorated shop in Osaka. I was fortunate enough to hear of their free Valentine’s Day gift available today, a beautifully sculpted hat with birds and a sprig of leaves, shown above. I think this is one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts out there, so be sure to stop by and get yourself a copy. Note that you have to find the item 😉

Kiki’s Closet, which has a number of very well-done goth accessories and chokers, is giving away a very detailed V-day belt. I would prefer this in black or white leather rather than brown, but it’s mod, so the textures can be changed. The belt is located on the boardwalk rather than the store itself.
