A Cure for the Monday Blues

I’ve got a case of the Monday Blues. It’s cold and rainy where I live right now, and I’m just not having it. I think a really cold rain is the worst kind of rain! And I’ve got to get out and go to class in it, so that should be fun! But, enough complaining….the sun’ll come out tomorrow! (I hope!)

Do you guys get the Monday Blues? What do you do to conquer them? For me, throwing on a cute outfit puts me in a better mood!

I’ve got 3 looks to show you today that I put together using stuff from U.One, which is a store I just discovered. Well, okay, I saw it on the FabFree blog. 😉 It’s owned by Fionna Cale, who is coincidentally the same designer for PopArt Furniture. I don’t think I’ve blogged PopArt before, but Fionna is notorious for making cute furniture at super low prices. A huge percentage of the stuff in her furniture store is only $1L, and the same goes for her clothing store as well. I found it a little strange that U.One’s prices are kind of all over the place, ranging from $1L to $15L to $25L (I think), but she’s put out some super cute mesh items that were definitely worth blogging about!

I do have to say, though, that I’m pretty sure most stuff in U.One is template clothing, but that doesn’t bother me a bit because it’s all super cute.

Misfits

Rockoil (by Scarlet Felicci) just released a couple of new things! The first is a long mesh dress, called “Charon”, with a checkerboard print at the neck in the front, and a skull/checkerboard print in the back. I forgot to ask Scarlet if her mesh is standard sizing, but I’m pretty sure it is.

The dress comes with the badass arm & hand accessories, as well as the mask.  “Charon” also comes in a light & dark version. I feel very sultry and secretive in this, like I could get away with anything! *wink*

The next outfit is perfect if you love music from The Misfits! It comes with two different versions, the mesh “Misfits” top shown above with the logo print mesh pants, and the “Hands” mesh top shown below with system pants (with included sculpted cuffs). I’m also wearing the fishnet underpants layer that comes with it, which can be layered however you like. The arm warmers/gloves are also included! This outfit is totally punk, and I love it.

Pick up these awesome designs at Rockoil today!

Oh, Janie!

I decided to go check out Jane (by Janie Marlowe) the other day after seeing some of the stuff blogged on the Free*Style blog. And let me tell you, I fell in love with this store the minute it all rezzed. Everything in this store just screamed at me to buy it. Unfortunately, I am seriously the most broke and destitute person you’ll ever meet in RL right now, because of bills/expenses/college/books/etc, so I didn’t buy anything but I think I tried on every single demo in this store. What made me smile the most was there are several freebies throughout the store, just waiting to be picked up! But they’re kind of disguised, because they’re sitting in with the regular, not-free stuff, but they are still clearly labeled as freebies!

This is what I was like when I first entered the store: “NOO! EVERYTHING IS MINE! ALL MINE!”

Here is the “Needful Things” romper. It’s free in store, and comes in so many colors that it’s not even funny. I’m not even going to attempt to count them all…..I’m just showing you 4 of my favorite colors: Quarry, Avocado, Strawberry, and Honey. The rompers come in all layers, and they’re too cute!

This is the “Scalloped Undies” pack. It includes 6 pairs of panties, shown here, in underpant/pant layers. They’re too cute, and they’re all FREE!

These “Intrinsic Tanks” are an awesome freebie. These also come in about as many colors as the “Needful Things” Rompers, and I’m showing you 4 of my favorite colors from the pack: Eggplant, Eucalyptus, Milk, and Chocolate. These tanks come in undershirt/shirt/jacket layers, and they are perfect for layering! I’m amazed at how generous Janie Marlowe is, because there are literally SO many colors!

The top of this picture is showing off an adorable feature of Janie’s store: The “Build-Your-Own-Bikini” section. There is a mind-blowing number of combinations to choose from, and each piece is only $25L! Plus, as an added bonus, you can get a really cute crocheted cover-up in 3 shades of white for FREE! I know it’s just the start of fall, but it’s never too late to stock up on possibly every color or style of swimsuit you could think of.

The bottom part of this picture is just showing off some of the pretty things in-store. Most of Jane’s items are mesh, but there are a few non-mesh and sculpted/prim items as well. Like I said earlier, I think I tried on every single demo for every product in this store, and everything is so well made and beautiful. Janie Marlowe’s style is exactly what I’ve been looking for in SL. This store ranks right up there with my favorite store, Mon Tissu.

The last thing I want to show you is the absolutely gorgeous dress you get just for subscribing to Jane’s update group. It comes in two colors, Navy (shown here) and Khaki (not shown). It is mesh and is in standard sizing, and it’s so well made. It’s one of those rare pieces that is so simple but beautiful that it can be dressed up or worn casually.

Well, that’s it for today! If you haven’t already visited Jane, you should most definitely do so! Her mesh clothes are absolutely gorgeous and well-priced, and I promise it is well worth the visit! Love you! XOXO

Rockoil

Rockoil is a really neat goth, metal, cyber, grunge, punk, and urban style store. The owner, Scarlet Felicci, contacted me and asked me to check out her store. It’s pretty awesome and has a lot of potential.

This first look is called “Vintage”, and it’s a cute set of jeans (including sculpted cuffs), 3 bra tops, and a set of really cute pasties that are adorably printed band-aids. The jeans are actually purple, so don’t let my red tinting in the next 3 photos throw you off. I’m showing each of the 3 bra tops included below.

I put together this outfit from two items. The first is a tube top, called “Twin”, and it’s got two pistols on the front. It’s perfect for layering into your outfit….and because of my RL Fiance, I’m into guns so I liked this! The second part is a pair of black jeans (including sculpted cuffs) that are normal in the front, but have a surprise in back! They are appropriately named, “Back Door”, and I actually really like these. I’m not normally the kind of person to wear stuff that openly shows off my butt, but I like these because they’re subtlety sexy. They kinda remind me of chaps!

The last thing I want to show you is a pair of super cute shoes, called “Miss Spring”. They’re a really pretty mint green and feature cute, printed bows. They come with a resize and color changing HUD, although I had some issues getting them tinted to my feet. Of course, I have never been able to tint anything perfectly, no matter what product it is, so don’t take my word on it. It’s an easy HUD and has the option to tint with RGB, which, of course I forgot to turn off the “show color under cursor” thing while taking the picture, so that’s why you see tiny text on parts of the shoes. That part is not included, it’s just my careless mistake!

Anyway, if you’re looking for a cute, affordable style, check out Rockoil. There are plenty more items than what I’ve shown here, and she even has some mesh stuff out right now, too. Scarlet is very friendly, and I just love the store’s name. I think it’s so creative…..”Rockoil” is catchy and just kind of rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?
