Ascot Opening Day!

with 9 comments

 

OK, so Prince Philip wasn’t able to get to Royal Ascot either, bless him! Hope he makes a speedy recovery, he does so well for 96 years old. I least I managed the Races virtually ūüôā

This is the “Always Dreaming Men’s Suit” from Heth Haute Couture and it’s the June Group Gift.

You’ll be off to the races in this gorgeous suit featuring a crisp linen jacket, matching blue satin and gold foil waistcoat, silk shirt, bow tie and pocket square, plaid trousers and saddle Oxford shoes. There’s also a monocle, belt, socks, panama hat, boutonni√®re and walking cane. We even get optional Mesh hands and all the alphas, Heth, you are spoiling us!

 

The suit will fit most Mesh Bodies (I tried it on ADAM which was fine) and has 5 standard sizes XS – XL. It’s an all-in-one suit so no messing about trying to get everything to fit properly. The prim socks fit into the shoes and disappear into the trouser hem so nothing untoward shows. If you chose to wear it on a Mesh body all you need to do is to make sure the neck fits the collar of the shirt and alpha everything else out except for the hands and neck. You can even wear your Bento hands with this suit. ¬†It really is pretty easy to do that. I wore the Medium version, by the way.

For the hat, you’ll need to wear either hat hair or else a nice hair base. You can resize the hat at a click. I didn’t use the cane in the pictures but it looks very smart with a horse head deco in gold and the cane is a dark wood.

Horse is an Arabian by AKK Horses and the apple bucket is from JIAN‘s Apple Orchard Set.

Casually Smart

with 2 comments

It’s quite difficult to find the smart casual look in Second Life¬ģ Menswear, so I was really pleased to receive the latest outfit from Heth Haute Couture¬† which is called the “Rodrigo Men’s Ensemble”.

This is a slim fit look, so even the larger sizes will reflect that style. ¬†I went over to the St Kitts sim which is a gorgeous tropical interpretation of the real life St Kitts in the Caribbean, and took photographs against a rich background of palm trees and furniture suitable for hot climates. If you like beach sims, you’ll adore this one.

So what’s in the set? ¬†Well, there’s the slim fit jacket with 4 button opening and mandarin collar, and this has a relaxed t-shirt and brocade waistcoat insert. ¬†Then there’s matching chino pants as a separate piece, really nice brushed leather zip boots, and Fedora Hat. ¬†The jacket and pants come in Standard sizing XS to XL – I was wearing the size M pants with the size L jacket. ¬†Boots and Fedora come with a handy resizer which is easy to use. ¬†The included alpha will take care of all the pieces.

I’m also wearing the new brooch from HHC – this is a fun and beautifully made piece. ¬†If you click on the bee, its wings will animate as if it’s buzzing! ¬†Created with over 300 brilliant cut canary, apricot and black diamonds. A very unique couture jewelry collectable, the “Jeweled Bee Brooch” was created to celebrate Earth Day all year long and to draw attention to our dwindling world bee population.

Pick up your copy of the “Rodrigo Men’s¬†Ensemble” and “Jeweled Bee Brooch” from these outlets:

The skin I’m wearing is from 7 Deadly s{K}ins¬† as I like to include one system skin a month from them (I know a lot of you still like to wear system). ¬†I was playing the gacha at the front of the store and this is the “Jaimy” skin # 6 from the gacha of the same name. ¬†Only L$50 for this! ¬†They must be joking, it’s such good quality. ¬†A nice mid tone skin with beard and cut eyebrow feature. ¬†Why don’t you try your luck? ¬†Don’t forget to click on the Mini Mania boards, too. ¬†Low amounts of hits required, some as low as 10 hits.

King of the North

with 5 comments

Here’s Jon Snow braving the other side of the wall because he’s forgotten to take in sufficient supplies to bolster up the Night’s Watch. By some trick of the light (and maybe destiny in my world) his shadow falls over the land making him King of the North.

Loving the outfit? ¬†It’s April’s Group Gift by Heth Haute Couture and features a massive fur collar and all-in-one costume. ¬†Absolutely love it and as he’s called it “King of the North Ensemble” ¬†I just couldn’t resist the inference. This would suit most avatar and mesh bodies because you really knock those out with an alpha. The only trick is fitting the collar correctly.

If you’re fitting on a system avatar, then use the slide bars in the Torso section to get a good fit on the neckline. Don’t forget to add both the alphas included in the outfit, one is for the body and one for the system hands. When you’re satisfied with the fit, rename and save your shape. Keep it in the outfit folder and then you won’t have to mess about again.

The April free gift from Heth Haute Couture is the “King of the North Brooch”. I removed the fur cape to better show you. It’s gold with red rubies and rather magnificent. It will show up ¬†under the fur cape but not as clearly as you see here.

Pick up your copy of the “King of the North” Ensemble and Brooch¬†from these outlets:

The skin I’m wearing is from 7 Deadly s{K}ins ¬†and it’s the Men’s Group Gift. “Bo”¬†contains:-

OMEGA face applier – Caramel, Clay, Steam, Stone, Taupe

OMEGA body applier – smooth Caramel, Steam, Taupe, Clay, Stone

I chose the Caramel shade and put it on CATWA Bento Daniel Head (my own shape) using the OMEGA relay. This is a mature adult looking skin and goes very well with a number of outfits. There’s a shadow of a beard on it which is flattering and more realistic, I think. Very nice skin anyway, and if you belong to 7 Deadly s{K}ins ¬†group, you’ll find many other great deals as well as hunts and generous gifts. There’s an Easter Egg hunt on at the moment which is for group members only. More about that in another post.

Cheers, m’dears ūüôā

 

 

 

 

Richard’s an original!

with 7 comments

I’m proud to present Heth Haute Couture‘s first original Mesh suit, it’s called the “Richard Men’s Suit”. ¬†Available in 4 colourways – black, maroon, royal and emerald.

This is a couture suit with a slim fit jacket which cradles the neck in a close grown on collar. It has an open front that shows the 5 button waistcoat underneath and the crisp, white shirt.  Matching pants show the details with shadow creases and they fit just nicely over the included wingtip leather shoes and sock inserts.

There’s a choice of either long or bow ties in gold to match the buttons. Or wear just the white shirt with one gold button showing, that looks equally good.

The royal version is the only colourway with a patterned waistcoat, and this was my favourite. ¬†A close second was the maroon version. I’m a record shop here on the Long Journey sim, a place with so many shops, cafeterias and stores with superb landscaping slotted into a small space, you won’t believe it. You can see the pocket detail here, the flaps are 3D and lift off the jacket surface in a natural manner.

I’m wearing the emerald version here in one of the little garden areas at the back of the cafe pictures. The jacket and pants are separate so you can mix n match. ¬†I tried the royal jacket with the black pants and it looked good. ¬†You’d have to purchase the 2 sets, though. Both jacket and pants have 5 sizes – XS to XL. ¬†I was wearing the L size jacket over the M size pants.

This is the black version, and I finish up the afternoon in a Chinese restaurant where I’m meeting… whom? ¬†I leave that up to you to guess!

Jewelry was also by Heth Haute Couture as follows:

Couture glasses from the Alessio set, Calla Lily from The Grooms Collection, Black Diamond earring from the Jean Paul Ensemble, Marduk Men’s Ring and ¬†Quinn Men’s Ring.

*~*~*

I was also wearing the Devan Smoked HB V1 face applier from¬†7 Deadly s{K}ins. It’s¬†OMEGA so you can apply it to a number of Mesh heads – this is the Daniel Bento by CATWA. Pick up the Devan face applier pack at the guy’s department of¬†7 Deadly s{K}ins.

HHC – King of the Road

with 5 comments

 

The March group gifts at Heth Haute Couture have arrived and they are strictly royal!

The men’s group gift is the “His Majesty Crown”, a magnificent piece of jewelry featuring over 1000 animated mesh diamonds. The crown has a gold mesh base with all those brilliant cut diamonds and also emerald cut sapphires (rectangular) surrounded by marquis cut diamonds. There’s four parts to this crown, just keep adding them. If you want to reposition the crown, make sure you have selected all four parts.

The matching “His Majesty Brooch” is a free gift, you don’t need to belong to the HHC group to collect this beauty. It has a gold mesh base with animated mesh diamonds surrounding a¬†royal blue sapphire. Both pieces contain a micro-resizer.

I was wearing the HHC “Timo Men’s Ensemble” which you can also find at the mainstore.
