I made my way over the other day, with the many others desperately wanting to see the new LeLutka Collection. I told myself, I would only pick a few things to blog.... yeah... that is what I told myself.

So in keeping with my usual LeLutka blogs, EVERYTHING you see in the images is from them. Skin, Hair, Shoes, Jewelry, Clothes. Don't get too excited, the skin is not a *new* skin. Tho I do hear they will be making their way in store shortly.

So what did I think about all the summer goodness? Well, I loved everything. I think the new jewelry is really beautiful, and amazingly detailed... I wish I would have zoomed in and taken a few shots so you could see the workmanship. Anykey did such a great job, and there is a nice selection. I choose just a few pieces to show you. But there is a whole wall in store.

The shoes that Minnu & Thora made are great too... I love the shape of the TEESE shoes, and OMG... the St Tropez shoes are fantastic! They have a sling back, and open toe, and some of the colors are even 2 toned. Yessss..... there are prim toes in there. But I think they are small enough (and well detailed enough) that they add to the shoe instead of becoming a distraction, as are many prim feet these days.

Course the hair is wonderful... there were quite a few new styles, which I don't think was really mentioned. I have trouble wearing hair without bangs, I think I have an enourmous forehead. But for some reason the TALLULAH hair seems to really work on me regardless. I love the loose whispy bits of hair, and the overall softness on the styles.

And Finnnally... the clothes! Thora must have been working her booty off, because there is just tons and tons and TONS of new clothing. Everything comes in assorted colors, and speaking of color...this collection is more bright and "summery" then LeLutka normally puts out there. You can find casualy wear, formal wear, and everything in between. Oh and swimwear tooo! Yummy prim clothing, that has been sculpted meticulously and really fits the AV with little adjustments. Some of the skirts, have AOs in the, to make sure you normal AO doesn't do crazy nonsense to you look.

Well, I am pretty sure I have rambled on enough... so just have yourself a look....

So... I just got my first sets of Chaisuki skins. A good friend of mine pointed me over there the other night, and I was really impressed with the enormous makeup selection as well as the great body detail.

Soooo... I am going to share, in case you've not been there, or heard of the shop before (like myself).

I picked out the Elaine skin to share. I really like the lip and eye shaping on these skins, as I tried some others, and they didn't really work with my skin. I thought to give you a better review, I might show you both my redhead and brunette looks, with both the lighter and darker shades.

As I said above, the makeup selection is insane... I counted well over 30 actually?! For each skin tone! Thats insane.... if you cannot find one you like, there is something wrong with you. LOL The Elaine lighter tones are: light, medium & sunkissed. The Elaine darker tones are: tan, dark & Mocha. All of which you get a little sample of below.

I think the body detail is great, since I do prefer something much more defined, its right up my alley. The shading around the breasts, tummy, knees, etc... all very well defined. You have that all over glow that is very *in* right now. I think evein the lightest of the tones has a warmth to it.

For a skin I've not heard tons about, I was seriously impressed. I think its worth a trip over to Chaisuki ...there are quite a few there to choose from, and trying on demos is a blast anyways! =)

**UPDATE**: I am making this post public again. I have turned off comments, if you would like to send me a private message please feel free to do so. I haven't seen any concrete evidence to take this down, tho I did allow time for a bit more research. If things should change, I will remove this blog post all together.

I just love this great new dress from Boutique, so I had to share real quick. Tenshi Vielle is the creator behind Boutique, and makes lovely stuffs! I am really partial to the jewelry she creates actually, but when she sent this dress, I couldn't wait to snap some pics.

I think the Georgiana dress is perfect for the summer season, and I adore the V cut in the front... you all know how I love to show off my bewbs. =) I paired it up with a great Bow belt that also comes from Boutique, which comes in a jacket layer and you can probably add to dozens of different looks.

So thanks for sharing Ten! So head on over to Boutique and pick up some goodies!

League Skins

Helllloooo Lovies!!

I have new skins to share! Yay! Nena Janus of League has done a fantastic job with two skins I am going to share with you; Kate & Misty.

Each skin comes in 3 tones - Medium, Suntan & Deeptan. They also come with an array of makeups which I've managed to show you nearly every one below. The makeups are all pretty subtle, nothing too loud or wild, but with a very good mix of lip tones, and eye shadows. You also get each skin with an optional hair base AND the option or more or less clevage. In the images of Kate, I am wearing the more option, and the Misty, the less. I like having that option, particularly with lingerie.

The bodies are fantastic, great detail paid to the clavical, which you all know is something I really look for. I love the tummy, butt, and the knees.

I think between the 2 skins my personal preference is the Misty skin. I think on my shape, the lips and eyebrows seem to suit me more. But honestly, its a really close call, cause they both done so well.

So head on over to League, and grab up some demos!! Nena also carries 2 shapes designed for these skins, which you might want to try! =)

Hair Fair 2009

So I tried to come up with some creative way to blog my fave's from the hair fair... but didn't come up with anything, and gave up! LOL

So, I am just going to share with you 10 styles that I really loved. These of course aren't the only ones I loved, but I tried to pick some that might not have been shared yet, and give you a few that you may not have heard of.

Just because its not a huge name you hear everyday doesn't mean there aren't lots of other great hairs to check out. This is sort of the purpose of the hair fair, well in my opinion, and in addition to the fund raising of course.

So, head over, try and be wise and don't go prim heavy, and stop in all the shops, even the ones you might want to walk past, you never know whats waiting in store!
