It is funny – in the current Mens Dept. you can find items from different designers that follow one vibe. This time it definitely is skating. But let us start at the beginning: I wanted to go with a complete different look and therefor I purchased the Pilot Cardigan from <HVK> – that is obviously not shown here because <HVK> have a special kind of “shoppingbag” for their items which is the skateboard with the pose you can see above. And I have had a good laugh when I saw this and I somewhat wanted to create a look around this one. And for the cardigan – I will feature the knit from <HVK> in a further post for sure, because it is fabulous.
The denims with the wrapped around shirt are from !gO! and I really love the look of them. Also the shirt moves of course with your walk and shows once again the creativity of designers with mesh. The bicolor v-neck comes from [LV]SOLIDe and comes in 4 different styles and of course, like the pants from !gO!, in mesh male standard sizing.
The super curly hair is from [IRUCO] and is their latest release. Definitely a must if you are not going for the usual haircut in secondlife. The fantastic necklace comes from KOSH. The “Adain Necklace” can be found in the Mens Dept. in five different styles (black, chopper, silver, gold and shown here: brass) and this time you also can find the matching rings at the Mens Dept. I especially love of course the flawless texturing and the brilliant crafting of the necklace which is with every KOSH item I saw. Also you get not only the male version but also the female version and both options are also included with the chest- and spine attachment points. My eyes are from Poetic Colors and have been an item in a previous cycle of the Mens Dept.
List of stuff:
Skin: KENTO – Preston T2
Hair: [iruco] hair28 (black)
Eyes: Poetic Colors – Autumn Eyes “October Rain”
Sneakers: [JP]:dsg. – Sneakers (Groupgift)
Skateboard and Pose: <HVK> – Shoppingbag (comes with every purchase of <HVK>)

I rarely do location shots. First of all it is so much easier as photographer to build your own set and to fiddle around until you have the perfect pose and angle. And second of course noone is running in your picture when you are on high resolution and asking you what you are doing. BUT: this post is different, because it is indeed a location shot. And I want to tell you the story how that happened.
I found an artist via flickr that I found quite interesting and learned that the artist – Lux Chiantelle – also has an inworld gallery and hangout. As you know I am always looking for art for my home and garden blogposts so I contacted her and she was so kind to hand me over the landmark to the LND Gallery. And the place just blew me away. I wanted to buy some art there and I did (you will see bits and pieces in further blogposts also). But the Gallery and Hangout was just so me. Not only that the Gallery has a way lovely layout and is art itself – but the interior just has the perfect amount of quirkyness I simply adore. So you simply MUST check this place out!
And as we entered a new month the new round of the Mens Dept is coming closer. I am very glad to show you a special preview of a coat from !gO! you can get there beginning October 5th. I love this dufflecoat – first the texturing is way lovely and second I love dufflecoats in RL also. The dufflecoats are available in three different colors (red, green and brown) and are rigged mesh in male standard sizing. And believe me – I have seen many parts of the new collection and of course I will show you some more of it within the next days. But the 7th cycle of the Mens Dept. is by far the best one – you will love it.
Finally the glasses are from GOTZSCHE and are available at L’Accessoire.

between two meetings today, I decided to take a little break and spoil myself with a little shopping spree at faMESHed and The Gallery Gift Shop. And best, on both locations you can find great items from NYU – Minimal High Fashion Couture. So I decided to combine them both to a great look.
But before I tell you a little more about the items, I want to point you to my new haircut. Have you noticed? I made a steal at [e] during their annual hair sale. Today I’m wearing the haircut called Figure. You still can find the great mesh hair at the mainstore from Eliktatira. For 250L$ you can choose one colored version, but there are also Essentials Collections (280L$ – with up to 8 colortypes included) or the Fatpack (1400L$ – all available colurs included). Of course demos are available to check the look before purchase.
Let us start with this great done Trenchcoat I’m wearing today. This is a perfect match for the upcoming fall season and it is available at faMESHed from NYU – Minimal High Fashion Couture. At the venue you can choose between 12 great colors for 300L$ each. Or you can take the fatpack (all color options included – 2000L$). This mesh item comes in five different sizes with matching alpha layers. And, as always, a demoversion to test your personal fitting is also available at the venue.
Okay, back to the taxi, and next stop is The Gallery Gift Shop. The new items are out there for a few days now, so it will be hopefully not crowded. And I was surprised to see that NYU – Minimal High Fashion Couture offers there the great Studded Sunglasses for 230L$. In total you have 256 different color combinations available with just one pack. But, please keep in mind, that the sunglasses are also mesh items.
And finally, my bag is also from NYU – Minimal High Fashion Couture. But, for more information about this accessoriy, I want to point you to Nestors Blogpost Enter the Runway. You find the bag at the current cycle of L’accessories.
Now it’s time for me to say goodbye. The next meeting awaits me. But I’m pretty sure I will make a great impression with my modern and classy look today. Thank you designers, for these wonderful creations. While I’m in the meeting, I have preapred the credits for my todays look and hope to read you all soon !

I love green. And somehow it is funny how this translates to my second life. I mean – we can do everything in here and we can be whatever we want to but it is these little things like a favorite color that gives us personality. Green is also the main color of this rather flamboyant Dandy Jacket by 22769 ~ casual couture. There are four different styles available at the Mens Dept. and well – clearly I picked the greenish one. The interesting part: you can wear the jacket also without shirt and regarding the shirt itself: there are six different colors in every package of the Dandy Jacket. Again – the shirts can not be worn solo since they are only covering the bits the jacket does not and I assume (without having any clue about making mesh clothing – I am only good in wearing it) it has something to do with the whole rigging process. But anyways – the deal is as fabulous as the jacket itself is.
Green again. If you are reading our blog for some time now you hardly see me wearing other eyes then green once. And believe me – I tried. But somehow it looks plain wrong when I wear blues or hazels or greys or even reds and what else the creators have to offer in SL. The eyes are mesh, and as the quality tells they come again from Poetic Colors. Lano Ling, the creator, dedicated the new selection of his eyes to the ocean. And indeed – the colors and reflections are crisp and wonderful realistic. I am wearing “sea weed” but of course you find other colors also at the display of Poetic Colors at the Mens Dept.

Happy Sunday my Sweets,
this will be a very short blogpost, just because the last days of summer keep me busy. And in Second Life, there is so much going on that it is hard to decide where to start. But, one thing that catched my attention is the currently running Summer Harvest Hunt organised by the Ego Co. This Hunt is to celebrate the last warm days of the bypassing summer and a welcome to fall in style. Except the pose, you can find all the items used in this blogpost on the hunttrack in the hunt.
Should we begin? We shall. Have you recognized my new hairstyle? It’s from Alice Project and hidden is the Kiera Infinity Minipack. So you get this great mesh hair together with a HUD with serveral colors preloaded.
My todays outfit can be found as Summer Harvest Huntgift at NiNight Creations. This cute mesh, extra wide sweater comes in standard sizing. And it is a very comfy and casual piece of clothing. You can wear it (like i did) as a small dress or combine it with your favorite trousers.
But, what a girl wants – if we exclude shoes- are bags. And from the moment I unpacked the wonderful cute Tree Bag from TeaTime, i fell in love. Thank you for this neat piece of accessory!
That’s all for now sweets, now I go back hunting and shopping, while I have preapred for you the credits of this blogpost. Read you soon!
