I went to check out a skin I saw on Free*Style yesterday, and got sidetracked by another store completely lol., the store is called Acid and Mala.
So doing the sensible thing I TP'd to their main store, and found many delights.
The first item I bought is the Tiras de piel roja 9 piece set, which are the arm bands and choker you see in the red, also there are black and white ones available. I have allot of black armbands and black sets of accessories, but the red just drew me in to it. I adore the choker and can see myself wearing this often, I have a lock necklace I love that I don't get to wear too often as its not released, so at least this one will tide me over,
The full wrap around done many times on all pieces is very well done, and there are also leg straps too for the set, but I just wanted to show the arms and choker, you will see the rest when you get there :P. The next love was for the brilliant unisex Blind Hat/Hair - yes seems to be a hat and hat/hair week for me.
This hat hair combo is just fun and edgy, the texture is marvelous on both hat and hair, and I adore the little studs coming out of the rim of the hat, its like a subtle DO NOT TRESPASS message lol , and you can just imagine all those broody men we know wearing this and becoming even more mysterious.
needing more black and red, I dived into Inventory and decided that typing red in search was as time consuming as just looking in each folder lol. But I came out with the Vicky dress from Artilleri and just put on the shirt piece, as the style of this top is yummy. The fabulous tights are from TRUTH and are the Veruca Salt leggings - on the underwear layer, so perfect for boots - I giggled when I turned my camera and saw that they don't exactly cover all the bum, but that just made it cuter. The TRUTH is out there - ok sorry just had to say it coz it was driving me nuts in my head for the day lol.
The skin is also available at TRUTH and is the Arcane Liquid Skin (Latte) Smoked/Strawberry, I love this skin, its so pouty and delish, make sure you grab some DEMOS. Needing some fab boots to go with this look , I went to Beckenbauer and got the Chantal Cherry boots, having grown up in the Doc Martens age , these are just fabulous and come in lots of yummy colours.
Moving from Edgy to adorable, some more pieces I picked up at Acid and Mala, are the snuggly Bufanda y gorro neko Hat Scarf , and the leg and arm warmers texture change pack.
There are three different packs to the arm and leg warmers but this set had the same texture as the scarf and hat I couldn't live without.
The hat fit was perfect, I only had to change one prim in my hair - the lovely Saleen hair from HCT thats only 1L for the fat pack- at the front , made a copy of the style first and then pasted the new edited version straight into the scarf and hat folder for the next time I wear them. Look at the cute little buttons/embroidery things on both the hat and the scarf, and OMG ears with piercings lol so cute, I have always wanted one of those that you see on babies lol now I have one of my own .
Whether legwarmers are your thing or not, the armwarmers are just fab and a great way to keep snuggly with OUR winter thats already frosting up my window, sheeesh its cold this morning, but at 5am what does one expect lol.
The cuteness of these accessories made me feel young, and you know when you are young and silly you tend to want to wear as little as possible even in cold weather, well I know I did lol. So as long as the zones that all the heat needs to be are covered, you can do the minimal clothing option, and there isnt much as minimal as the KC Jeans Skirt from Kimberly Casanova Designs.
The top is the Keyhole top from La La Foo Foo, and is the white one tinted. Now somehow, I don't know how, but Roslin of Fleur always seems to know when I am on a posestand, she dropped the NEW Vivant Bronze Dig Ophelia 2 on me and its just beautiful , the sad side of that though is , if you look at the picture on the far right lol thats me contempating life WITHOUT there ever being NEW Vivants *sniffles *.
Yes, unfortunatly this is the LAST one , and there 'may' be one or two done for RFL, but thats just a 'Maybe".
But do stay tuned for an incredible NEW skin line to come from Fluer in the upcoming months.
I did get asked though, does this mean Fleur is going to retire Vivant ? or still have them in the store for ever more, well I HOPE SO , I hope they stay, because I'll chuck a big wobbly if they go away lol.
The other hair I have on to show you the face details better , is the Reica hair from Diversity Hair , cute as a button on a scarf lol, and the Tangerine Hair Rose from Essentia was the perfect combo with the scarf and warmers colours.
The shoes are the Ballet Wedges from ETD , and thanks to Fashion Emergency and Whimsy Winx and Efemera I worked out how to change the colours - lol dont delete colour change notecards :P.
Two more things I just coulnt resist at Acid and Mala , were the Collar metal rojo, and lol the Organic Boots with Bears.
Why the Organic boots ? I have no idea , but they just wanted to be mine lol.
The bears with nails going through them all voodoo doll like are cute in their creepyness , and the idea of heshan bags tied around your legs with rope was too much fun , I couldn't resist lol.
The collar though was all about the Chains and Key and such and just too cute for only 80L I think it was , but yeah everything in Acid and Mala is really inexpensive.
While I was in my TRUTH folder and wearing the Veruca tights, I saw another long forgotten EVIL folder lol, some of you may remember TRUTH and the HOBO Store , well not sure if the store ever happened , it was a lot of Truth being naughty. But he did go as far as to make teaser clothing for it , and even though I don't usually wear things you cant get lol this one was perfect for my Organic boots that I couldn't resist.
There was a skirt with the set too of newspaper pages - sooooo DOLLY 86' - but it was too long , and the license plate belt is just fab, so if you dont see these in his store IM him and harass him - he deserves it :P.
The skin is again Arcane in the Ghost tone , which seemed fitting and again available at TRUTH . The hair which I love is Trash by Old Gravy and thanks to Efe talking about the hair she had on in IM it reminded me to venture to my Old Gravy folder for perfect hair to complete my look.
hope you go visit Acid and Mala and have as much fun as I did .
