I love the chance to discover a new store. My friend, the lovely and talented Caelan Hancroft, recently opened her jewelry store Cae. I absolutely love the elegant designs she’s creating. Plus, all of her pieces are texture change and have a wide variety of options. I love options. I was beyond honored when asked to model one of these sets, and you can see Cae’s work at her mainstore on the Truth District. You’ll also see one of her sets up close and personal in this post! Here’s a look at pieces from the Knotted set. I usually only wear silver/platinum/white gold… but I really like Cae’s copper, rose gold and even her gold tones. Here, I’m wearing the tri-color option this set has.
I also have another new discovery to share with you… the adorable ankle boots I’m wearing in this next pic are from a new store called chillie. Right now, chiilie is only on Marketplace, and you can visit their MP store here. These boots come in two types of leather, but I am wearing the suede version in my pic. Each pair is texture change. You can change the heel cap, the heel, the sole and the boot itself. It makes these boots very versatile and a great deal, since you get more than one pair of shoes in, well, one pair of shoes! Plus, I love texture change shoes because they help cut down on your inventory.
My skirt and jacket are more Valentina E. Couture items (I might be a touch obsessed with this store). My adorably sexy t-shirt is from Sleeping Koala. There are people who will claim there’s no longer a need for texture clothing, but I am not one of them. First of all, I love layering and it’s often easier with a texture layer than trying to layer mesh pieces. But secondly, some clothes are meant to fit like a second skin, and this top is definitely among those items. I’m also wearing a pair of sheer stockings from Izzie’s, further proving a need for texture clothes!
Continuing with Pose Appreciate Week, I am featuring poses from my very favorite SL pose creator… and yes, I may be biased since he happens to be my husband (in RL and SL) Radagast Lexington. In all honesty, when we opened our store Embody, I attempted to make poses. It’s not as easy as some might believe. Creating poses that don’t break the avatar mesh, that have realistic physics and that are still all the things you want in a pose is a rather major challenge. Fortunately, there are people more talented than I who create poses for us to use!
Finally, here’s a good closeup of the gorgeous new Laina skin from Adam n Eve. I wanted a close up that would show off the adorable dimples. I love dimples, but they are hard to do well in SL, it seems. This skin has a tattoo add on for them, and I think they’re perfect. Also, steal another look at that gorgeous necklace and earrings from Cae! My stunning eyes are part of the new Eternal line at IKON.
