Knock Yourself Out with Sport Lux…

Ever had one of those weeks where by the end you just feel like life has beaten you up a bit? Well, I almost had one and right now I’m not a jolly Dolly, I’m a ‘kick ass life tried taking me on and lost’ Dolly! Well don’t be too scared, I’m still hard on the outside and soft as ever on the inside (shhhh don’t tell anyone) and this week’s post isn’t just about winners and losers; it’s also about fashion (of course!) and other aspects of my life. Firstly, I know Sports Lux has been in vogue since 2007, but my favourite glam rag mags (Harpers Bazaar and Cosmo) are still giving it coverage and blissfully the trend is continuing to feature big in some of the elite SL labels including Ce Cubic Effect and COCO. Secondly, I have persuaded Sugar Daddy to join me at circuit training when he returns to the UK next week… he asked me if I was going to kick his ass… what do you think I said?… answers on a postcard please :P.

1. More and more, I find myself turning to Xstreet when I’m styling and can’t find items I know will finish off the ensembles I’m putting together. Whilst the search functionality may not be perfect, it’s certainly an improvement on the inworld search. I’ve found many pieces on Xstreet, including this one, that aren’t available inworld and they tend to be a whole lot cheaper too. EMO Black Star Visor (L$25)

2. I love a freebie just as much as the next girl especially when they’re as yummy as these earrings created by Polyester Partridge. You can pick them up at the GNUbie Store along with a green version and whole host of freebie and dollarbie goodies from some of SL’s most popular designers. Yummy Jewlery Pink Swirly Earrings (L$0)

3. I have one word for these shades… genius! In case you haven’t worked it out yet, they are textured on the lenses with city street reflections. The pack comes with a night and day version. Highly recommended! [ glow ] Studio Shutter Shades Night Version (part of the Shutter Shades day’n’night pack) (L$230)

4. Thanks to Pixelfashion Sally Shoes in White (L$0)

5. Now this may look like your ordinary polo shirt, but as you’ve probably worked out by now, I always go for things that are just that little bit different; this top certainly fits into that category. It has great hand-drawn texturing on the front, but it’s quirkiness lies on the back where you’ll find the cutest gathering finished off with a prim tie.

    Thanks so much Chance… hope you’ve recovered :P. I’m a sucker for all things gawdy and just find myself doing clashy colours over and over x.

    So glad you enjoyed the post Alexa and thanks very much for your kind comment :).

  4. seriously — I don’t think anyone else knows how to make their blog as interesting as you do 😉 You make fashion much more fun than it already is — the first look blows my mind away!

    Love the composition of the shot, but most of all love the cardigan oh so much — and the way you paired those socks with shoes is just adorably genius. A touch of lace on a sporty look 😉 NAISE!
