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. Surf Couture Tie Back Polo in Sour Apple (L$100)

Borrowed from the Boys…

It looks as if the androgynous dressing trend is set to continue well into 2009. For many designers at New York Fashion Week this year, it was all about exaggerated jackets paired with slouchy trousers and was certainly a case of those ‘Who do girls like they’re boys‘. Well in truth, Dolly is far too much a girly girl to pull off the gender neutral look in a big way, but I wanted to demonstrate in this post how it’s possible to embrace the trend by introducing elements of it into our virtual wardrobes. A big thank you to my dear friend and brilliant RL and SL architect, Lake Impfondo, for allowing me to shoot the photos for this piece at his new and jaw-dropping testosterone-loaded bachelor pad.

Bliensen + Maitai does it again with this fabulous little tie. This is the ladies’ version but there are mens’ styles available too.

The detailing on the pin is really beautiful and it’s scripted so you can choose from gold or silver options to coordinate with your outfit. Not only that, but the tie comes in 3 wear options… round the neck, under the collar and knot only; 2 lengths… short and long; and in 7 colours!

As with everything Plurabelle Laszlo does for the Bliensen + Maitai label, these are quirky with a capital ‘Q’. All her work is just that little bit different and I love it! Click here to visit the main store.

second-life-woesecond-life-jeansWhen Dick Wiesel, designer of the WoE label, dropped these jeans on me, I told him they were the best thing since sliced bread and I meant it! You’ll know how amazing his jeans’ textures are if you’ve ever owned a pair, but this boyfriend cut for girls is one I’ve never seen in Second Life before. They are incredibly cute and as with all Dick’s jeans, I challenge you to find any other pair that will make your avi’s toosh look better!

As well as jeans, Dick makes a great range of casual clothing. Click here to visit WoE’s main store.

If you try wearing some of the items featured today together in their default attachment positions, it won’t be possible 😦 One item will replace another as some are set to attach in the same place on your avatar. To overcome this problem, right click the item in your inventory, select ‘Attach To >’, and choose an alternative ‘free’ attachment point. You’ll have to edit the item’s position to fit after doing this so it’s essential to make a copy first!  This is a trial and error process as some points work better than others for certain prim items.
