Finally Found: Plume and Catwa

Top:  Plume;  Jeux d’enfants, platinum
Left:  Plume;  Plumeria, platinum
Right:  Plume;  Innocence, platinum
Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, milk, angelic
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus ocean
Shirt:  Novocaine;  Alandra blouse, pink

Some women love shoes, some love skins, some love handbags…with me, its hair.  So it makes me giddy when I find a hair store I didn’t know about.  Recently, I found two!!

The first, Plume, specializes in very elegant and editorial hair styles.  I’ve always had a few basic go-to updos in my inventory for those formal evenings, but I usually prefer long hair.  Until recently.  I have adored every style I’ve bought from Plume, including the new releases this week I’ve shown above.

Top:  Catwa;  Hayfa V3, creamy toffee
Bottom:  Catwa;  Sumaya V2, creamy toffee
Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 1
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, apple
Shirt:  Novocaine;  Allandra blouse, gold

Catwa is one of those designers that you ask yourself, “How did I not know about this?”  I only had time to run down the New Releases aisle, but I wanted them all and had to make some hard choices.  I’ll certainly be making a return trip to raid the rest of the styles when I have a couple hours to sample them all.

Finally Found: So Many Styles

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 01
Hair:  Exile;  Caitrin, Vanilla roots
Dress:  So Many Styles;  Floral Tulip dress, blue
Shoes:  Pixel Mode;  Fae Wedge, Khaki
Necklace:  Miel;  Cue necklace
Bracelet:  Twisted & Spoiled;  ChiChi bangle

I actually first found So Many Styles a few weeks back when we did the “I Let My Boyfriend Dress Me” challenge.  Xan had chosen one of the skirts from there and I put it on my Places To Check Out list.

I was looking for something to wear Friday evening and went to my handy list.  After about an hour shopping there, I ended up with so many cute options to wear that I had trouble deciding on one.

The floral dress reminded me of some of the 80’s fashions I grew up with and it was a big hit with the boyfriend.

Finally Found: G. Field

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, medium 9
Hair:  Exile;  Caitrin, Stefani roots
Top:  G. Field;  Floral Halter top, lime
Capri:  G. Field;  Capri Jeans, white (not shown)
Shoes:  Mstyle;  Rivea pumps, yellow flowers
Jewelry:  Cheerno;  bangles, gold & EarthStones; Diamond Tennis bangle, gold

I must have been living under a rock to NOT have known about G. Field!  I finally found them during Shoe Fair when they released those cute Vilda boots.  I had put them on my list to go visit the mainstore, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet.  Then I got a notice about a new clothing release.  Wait, wut?  They do clothes too! 

I immediately raced over and spent over an hour grabbing clothes and of course, more shoes.  This top was one of my selections and after wearing it, I can say I’ll be going back to get more colors because its absolutely adorable!

Also newly- released is the Rivea pumps from Mstyle in leopard print and floral options.  I’m not too big a fan of prints of any kind, but I completely fell in love with the floral.  Unfortunately, the fatpack is for both sets of prints, so I’ll have to go back and buy all the other floral colors separately.

Finally Found…Izzie’s and Al Vulo

Skin:  Al Vulo; Ninni, Fairy, Red
Hair:  Exile;  Oceane, whiskey
Eyes:  Exodi;  Riven Eyes, Grasshopper
Lashes:  Laqroki; Mascara 01, Black, Natural
Vest:  Izzie’s; Draped Vest, Blue
Shirt:  Twisted & Spoiled;  Vest, Neutral Pack, White
Skirt:  Maitreya;  Cleo Jean Skirt, Light Wash
Socks:  JANE;  Lil Piggies socks, rugby knee hi, Milk
Shoes:  Pixel Mode;  Baby T’s, Royal
Bracelets:  Frangiapani Designs;  Black Pearl & Silver Cuff (r) & Double Plait Bangle (l)

One of the things I love about the special/bargain lists that come out weekly is that I find creators that are new-to-me (even though they may have been around for years).  I haven’t lived under a fashion rock, but often I go gushing to a friend about some store I just ran across and they’re like, “Where you been, they’ve been around forever”.  *Sighs*

 

I’m not sure how long Izzie’s has been open, but I just finally found them from the Lazy Sunday list this past weekend.  The more I looked around, the more I wanted and I had to force myself to leave after buying a couple pieces or I would have bought out the whole store.  I love the rich texture on the vest and the way the bottom prims flow.  You can’t see the shoulders because of the hair, but there is some cute detailing there as well.

 

I also finally found Al Vulo skins.  They are beautifully done and less than a thousand Linden each, which *I* consider affordable.  Most of my SL life, I’ve favored skins with heavily-lined eyes with thick, black lashes, which seems to be a consistent feature  with these skins.  I decided to go all-out with the one I selected and chose a red lip (unusual for me).
