Mesh horns at Lassitude & Ennui

MESH filigree horns from Lassitude & Ennui


Jackal has slyly created something without telling anyone about it. I found the store sign for it in her flickr, and decided to go ahead and post it. Look, look, there are filigree MESH HORNS at Lassitude & Ennui! They are delicately made, as if beaten out of fairy metal, and come in a pack of five metals: gold, black, bone, bronze and silver for 290L.

Now I haz it. And you can haz it too, if you hop over here. [SLURL to Lassitude & Ennui]

Tighter thighs

Mesh skirt haz booty


So, for us people with skinny legs, Jackal snuck a thin-fitting pair of boots into the Mesh Overknee Boot box. Cool, eh? I like how snug the top part of the boot is now around my thigh! I'm still wearing mesh just for Jackal, too. This skirt by a new-to-me shop named Pink, Inc. fits like a dream (and gives me uber tush, damn). The top is also by Pink, Inc., with a gorgeously detailed studded skull on it. I felt goth when I put it on, and luckily Mochi Millena had just completed the Alyx skin line for the Atomic Bakesale (coming soon!) … I love how she's given this skin her trademark creaminess, but with that Atomic twist at the lip.

Flowers of Fall

o hi


Jackal also makes jewelry. Case in point, the Bleeding Heart necklace and earring set, above. It has a hud that changes metal and flower colors, and reminds me of, er, Spring. It's a good thing my dress is autumnal -- a gift from PixelDolls, a dress with a mesh skirt. [SLURL to Lassitude & Ennui]

Shadowgory

shadowgory


Allegory Malaprop was kind enough to stand around and model while I swore at shadows and the new Environmental Editor. Grrrr. Alle was wearing pretty clothing, though, including a set of Lassitude & Ennui Thecla boots (above). I made the picture black and white, the actual boots have a more natural pigment to 'em. Shadows are a pain in the arse. But at least my model was pretty. (SLURL to Lassitude & Ennui)

8-bit arse

and shoes


I'm really glad that Jackal dragged me to a shop called Jane. "It's all mesh," she said gleefully, and so I dutifully bought some mesh stuff, hoping that my browser could render it … And yes it did. This means that a lot of the poses that I tend not to put on while blogging I can totally use now, and the dress moves with me. Tonight I'm all autumnal in browns and tans, so I stood in sunset light and let it wash over me. I'm wearing a new jewelry set by the lovely blogger Miss Nissa Nightfire too, the Cassana set, available at the Magpie booth at Jewelry Fair.

I still kind of fail with shadows -- my shadow butt was so pixelated that I had to smooth it over with "liquefy" in Photoshop. But my shoes came out perfectly, and they're my favorite for this so-almost-October season. Lassitude & Ennui Skully Pumps in pumpkin. [SLURL to the shop!]

The season rubs me wrong

rolling in the water


Lately I've been inspired by the real-life blogger Temporary Secretary and her adorable style. Nothing is overtly sexy, all of it is work-appropriate and every so slightly vintage, and yet the lady looks dead elegant. Here, I tried for a look that mixed a knee-skirt with a frilly top in colors that suited my mood. I'm wearing Lassitude & Ennui's Celtic boots for this, in such a nice golden brown that I'm going to be hard pressed to take them off. [ SLURL to L&E ] And in case you didn't see the notice, Jackal fiddled with the Mesh Overknee Boots.

Mesh overknee boots: Update!

Just a quick note - I've updated the mesh overknee boots (see http://lassitudeennui.blogspot.com/2011/09/overknee-mesh-boots.html ) with a second, smaller size that is better suited to thinner avatars, and have also adressed the issue of the mesh cuff around the thigh being see-through from the inside, which was particularly noticeable with thinner avatar and in certain poses. Everyone who previously purchased the boots should've received the updated version - if not, IM me!

Bum a cig?

boots. so cute.


Today's outfit is inspired by Jackal's Doll Ankle Boots in brown. They are so fluffy and cute that I wanted to look just as ... ok I probably look really frightening, but that's how I roll. Jackal dragged me out to get this mesh skirt from Jane the other day -- I absolutely adore the arse! The hat is by Split Pea, and will be out tomorrow for Fifty Linden Friday.

Lime and henna

Autumn at Lassitude & Ennui...


Jackal redid the landscape for autumn, and it's serene and crisp here at Lassitude & Ennui. I put on some cream-colored boots (Flora) and went for a nice muddy stroll by the water. It was worth it, I found a boat to pose in, and some lovely lilies and cattails. I went for an entirely mesh-free outfit today too. The dress is Ingenue's Sedgewick dress, a new release for Collabor88, and the stockings are the Pastel Amortentia by Schadenfreude. It suited my mood -- all ready for Spring. Er. Fall.

Come see the Fall colors!

Enmeshed

Jackal for L&E's blog


Jackal Ennui is, of course, the long-time SL veteran behind Lassitude & Ennui. She's German, I'm from the East Coast, we sometimes get to hang out for a minute or two on weekends. I managed to catch her hanging about the sim today, redecorating for Autumn and petting her Meero.

I asked her what she was wearing.

"Almost entirely mesh," she said gleefully. "Even the hair."

The hair is free from Curious Kitties, a group gift, although you can pay for a color-changing hud if you want to. I'm getting the sense that Jackal is embracing mesh whole-heartedly, here…

What's next, Jackal? Mesh shoelaces? :D

You can find those mesh overknee boots at Lassitude & Ennui.

Wiggles when you move

& Lassitude & Ennui boots


How to best dress up Jackal's Mesh overknee boots today? I had the luck of getting this gold mesh Baiastice dress in the mail. I think my favorite part of wearing mesh is watching all of the normally stiff parts move (hush your dirty minds), and the fabric along with it. I really love the texture of gold in this dress, and thought it looked nice against the embossed red leather of these boots.

How have you been wearing yours?! Jackal and I wanna see. Take a snapshot and post to her Flickr group! SLURL to the Lassitude & Ennui main store, and SLURL to Baiastice.

I'm just a tease...

But I would like to whisper in your ear that Overknee Mesh Boots are now available at Lassitude & Ennui. These slit-backed thighhighs come in three types, but since I'm Jackal's blogger and not Jackal, I'll let her do the hard work. I think you should simply come see these gothy (or pastel) (or richly tinted) boots for yourself. I've been sitting here watching them bend with my knee for minutes now...
