Nouveau chez / New at “Kitchy Boutique” and “Philotic Energy”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Costume, Night, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Friday, February 29th, 2008

Kitridge deSantis just released this time limited outfit for Kitchy Boutique. She was inspired by the 80’s.
I chose to combine it with the funny hair with hat from Aemilia Case for Philotic Energy, and the Chuck Taylor Converse-like shoes from Akeyo I showed you yesterday.
Look at this other ring from the last “Mesmerizing mystical hypnotic” collection by Mhaijik Guillaume: Mhaijik Jaitay Gold and Gold Ring, with animated texture.

Nouveau chez / New at “Mhaijik Things” & “UOMO”

Introducing today the “Crew” outfit by Kitridge DeSantis for UOMO.
In each color pack (4 different ones, shown below) you will get: A pair of jeans (same jeans with brown or black belt, depending on which pack you choose), a plaid shirt on the jacket layer (untucked), shirt, and undershirt layer (both tucked), with a complement on the underpants layer for a perfect fit with low waist pants, a blazer on the jacket layer, also a version of the pants on the underpants layer (to wear tucked in boots) and a special complement on the pants layer showing the untucked lower part of the shirt, in case you would like an untucked look with the blazer on the jacket layer! Wow! It forces you to wear the pants on the underpants layer, though, which is really usable only with boots.

Everything is copy and modify, you won’t have problems to tweak finely your sleeves and pants cuffs! I like the quality of the items Kitridge Desantis offers, with mostly vivid colors, or at least vivid accents! This “Crew” outfit is laid back without making you look like you are ready to wash the car!

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 2/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 4/5 - Price: 4/5 - Value for money: 4/5
We have no information about Kitridge DeSantis customer service.

Also a brand new ring from Mhaijik Guillaume, BeLoved ring, eclectic mixture of textures in true Mhaijik-style.
“Remember those soppy valentines you used to make? The ones that were layers and layers of lace doilies, heart stickers and glitter? Remember adding ribbon and more red? Remember working on it for hours and hours with the light of love and the vision of seeing his smile when he opened it? Closing your eyes and grinning at the happiness and love that your hands were melding into the intricate work of art you were creating… I love Love and in that frame of mind I created this ring – Be Loved.” Mhaijik said.

I chose “Loved Ring a Miscellany on leather” for today. Enjoy! It’s modify and transfer and you can get it for 250 Lindens.

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 5/5 - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 4/5
Mhaijik Guillaume offers a very careful and open minded customer service. She willingly does customs.

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: Winter Showing

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Monday, November 26th, 2007

The snow has already started to fly up north, so I’ve dragged out the cold-weather gear on SL as well as in real life. Early on, I purchased this set of men’s pea coats at Back and Forth, so reasonably priced at 300L for six colors. The scarf, from Gritty Kitty, has several different patterns to choose from including the fishbone (shown) as well as a red star, rat, skull, and several others.

I love these cords from Kitridge De Santis. I’m wearing the black ones, because I wanted to try out the black Oslos by Eponymous Trenchmouth. The fatpack is definitely worth the price, since you get four pair for barely more than the price of two. They’re nice because they have the look of boots without the bother of having to mess around with the pants to make them fit over the tops.

Nouveau chez / New at “Shiny Things”, “Stellar Designs” & “UOMO”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

Introducing today the brand new shoes from Shiny Things! We are getting spoiled! Less than three weeks after the great “Spencers” (shown here), Fallingwater Cellardoor offers us “Murphys,” some new sculpty shoes with a more casual flair this time. The texture is a velvety suede coming in eight colors (our favorite five shown below, plus Tan, Green, and Blue). They are only 24 prims, come in three sizes and are sold for a very fair 325 Lindens for each color. Demo available in store (The good shoe makers do all demos now, think of it…)

To go along with those casual shoes, I chose the new Corduroys pants by Kitridge DeSantis for UOMO. Kitridge works now regularly for men and I thank her a lot for that! These good corduroys come in six colors (4 shown below plus brown and navy.) They are moddable, like all the items from customer conscious designers. 75 Lindens for each color.

I chose also the new layered tee shirts by Lexi Morgan for Stellar design, pleasantly textured. They come in seven colors (four shown below, plus Blue, Teal, and WIne). They are not moddable, but since they don’t have full length sleeves, this is not annoying for the customer. They come on the jacket layer; I just wish Lexi did them on the shirt layer with a complement on the underpants layer as well, for a better versatility. 95 Lindens for each color, 550 for a fatpack of seven.

Nouveau chez / New at “Uomo” by Kitridge DeSantis

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Sunday, November 4th, 2007

Today I’m showing the “warmup outfit” by Kitridge DeSantis for Uomo. There are not so many sports clothes in SL, so this outfit can add new looks to those you can already have!
“Warmup” comes in four colours (shown). I have added some sweaters from the same brand. The outfit comes in two parts on both the jacket and pants layer. All the items are “Modify” and are 150 Lindens per colour.

To go along with this sporty outfit, there is nothing better than the very good sneakers from Ninja Petion for Digital Dragon Design. “Mens Dragon Chillin”, which comes in twelve colours, is “transfer” and modify” so you will be able to shrink or stretch them to fit your avatar perfectly. These sneakers deserve to be worn more! I wish I could see them a bit more in SL. You can pick your favorite colours for 400 Lindens each.

The hair by Jesseaitui Petion for Aitui is perfect to complete my sporty look! It comes in 8 colors.
The sweatband features the words: “Powered by Aitui”, and is scripted to be changed between 7 different colors: Black, White, Purple, red, grey, blue, and striped Green-blue-red. 175 Lindens for a color.

Nouveau chez / New at “Jeepers Creepers” (Eponymous Trenchmouth) & “UOMO” (Kitridge DeSantis)

Ben Vanguard | Uncategorized | Sunday, October 14th, 2007

Introducing today new items by Kitridge DeSantis for UOMO. I’m always happy when a designer starts a men’s range! Kitridge did good items I could appreciate on some female friends, and when I discovered she released some men’s stuff, I was excited!

The new release is made of velvety suede blazers and fresh sweaters. The hand drawn work is really pleasant, and you will certainly like the simple but sleek-looking pieces I’m showing you today. The prices are very fair, and Kitridge made all moddable, as do all the customer-conscious designers, those who don’t forget that we, men, have to tame our pants to fit our shoes, among other specificities in men’s clothing. They both come in 8 colors.

My only wish would be that Kitridge release a complement on the underpants layer for her sweaters, so they could be worn with low-rise pants. I’m sure she will think of that soon :-)

Kitridge released some other pieces before these; I will show them soon, I promise!

To complete the blazers and sweaters, I needed high-rise pants. I wanted something casual but still neat, so I chose some Robin Sojourner’s jeans! Their price is simply a gift and they come in many colors. Well, you need to have some pairs of them in your inventory!

Last but not least, the new Carl Perkins Shoes by Eponymous Trenchmouth for Jeepers Creepers. They come in six colors (5 shown), left and right foot have their own build, which is rare enough in SL to be noticed, and gives a totally “real” look to them. The texture is natural, as are the colors; they look slightly worn, but not too much. For a perfect fitting, Epy provides two sizes. Well, I just want more colors, as usual!
