Same Damned Thing Challenge

When I saw Achariya's newest challenge, I knew I had to get on board! I'm always fascinated at how so many pieces of clothing in sl can be switched up and made new by adding it to something completely different. Like i've said before, I rarely buy things that I have to wear with one outfit specifically.

The Cambridge is an awesome example of versatility. I can't even tell you how many times i've worn this. It goes with everything. Here's what I came up with this time. It goes in a totally different direction than what you would normally associate with Armidi which is why I love it! =)

{Kinetix} - Review

Ready for a saucy post? Ok.. well not SO saucy.. there's no sexorz or anything.. but these poses i'm about to show you could definitely lead to some of that! ;) These are from Vernice Burks and Jermaine Docherty's pose shop, {Kinetix}, and they are hot!

First up we have Take Me Too which is pretty self explanatory. hehe I love this pose. It's sensual and sexy with a touch of tenderness. Ok.. whatever, basically it stays true it's name and one would expect much clothes ripping to take place very soon!

Next up is Don't Let Me Fall which is a bit on the sweeter side but still very sensual. This one is a bit more.. "I'll gently lay you down on this bed and THEN frantically tear off your clothes" haha What?! I had to keep it saucy right?? ;)

But seriously, these poses are very nicely done and very expressive. It's a great capture of emotion. Another thing I REALLY liked is that they seemed to fit me really well even though my av is on the smaller side. Major points there!

Also, they offer a frequent shopper program which is sweet as hell. Every time you purchase a pose, you will receive a proof of purchase in your folder. Save those up and when you get five, you get a FREE pose of your choice! How can ya beat that!?

The best jeans EVER! imo..

Ok so.. I'm all about versatility when it comes to my sl wardrobe. I would rather spend my lindens on something I can mix up and pair with several different looks than something I will only wear with certain things.. which usually ends up meaning that I won't wear it very often at all. These jeans from LikeA have nailed it! And the best part? Two of these were free group gifts!

This first pair is the only pair that I had to actually buy and they were still a good deal at only 150L. They're just the basic faded blue and they come with the extremely real looking sculpted cuffs and the system flare version as well. The sculpted cuffs have preset men and women settings or you can adjust them manually.

This second pair is one of the group gifts which also comes with a pair of red cargo pants (not shown). These are the damaged style which I love and they come with the larger, baggier version of the flare. *my fave*

You can also purchase 2 different styles of the cuffs in the store for only 35L and they go perfectly with all the blue denim styles so basically you can take each pair and wear it at least 3 different ways!

Buuuuut! If you hurry up and make it to the store before January 15th, you can grab this exclusive pair *FREE* that has yet another style of cuffs which adds a completely different look.

I'm also wearing the latest release from Violet Voltaire's Black Hearts set in Wicked. It also comes in two other styles and they all include doll keys! I loooove the little hearts in the chain, SO cute! This is no mediocre set, definitely worth picking up.

Absolute Zero = Absolute Gorgeous!

I woke up this morning to an awesome collaboration release. I can't even tell you how excited I am to be blogging this set! Winter is my favorite season and this captures it perfectly. This comes from four of SL's very talented creators and consists of 32 pieces, skins included, which makes this a total steal!! Not to mention that the jewelry, hair, and the bows on the shoes are all color change so you can play with tons of combos. Here are a couple that I came up with.

You can pick this up at any of the four stores listed below but you better hurry because it's only available until January 17th, 2009!
