When the dust settles…

Super quick post today, as Saturdays are almost always busy busy busy in RL for me…

Foppish! Have you heard of it? I hadn’t until I was stalking, er… browsing people’s photos on Flickr and came across a few with these adorable sweaters. I had to go check the store out, obviously, because… I might possibly be addicted to sweaters. This version with the skulls is actually a group gift and the group is free to join, SO… no excuse, really. Go grab one. There are a couple other patterns available, as well, and they are darling so make sure you check those out, too. The whole store is very very cute.

The only thing I noticed when trying things on was that their sizes run a little different than Standard Size, but a few little mods or trying a different size isn’t really a big deal to me when the clothes are this cute. I usually wear a Standard XS and this jacket fits me perfectly in size XXS.

Have a great weekend!

Black & White Challenge

My dear frind Maci Restless of Little Miss Fashion Cupcake has issued a challenge inspired by a plea on Plurk. Hybie Minx (contributing blogger on It’s Only Fashion and creator of Savoir Faire Shapes) thought it was high time for a new blogger challenge. Maci took up the torch. Check the Flickr group for rules and details. Then, make pretty photos. Ok? Ok!

This is my addition to the challenge.

Come Closer

First off, I realize that this look is almost identical to yesterday’s look. I’m ok with that. Something I do in SL too much is wear things for a blog post then get something else new and something else new and I forget to go back to the things in my wardrobe that I really love. I end up with an inventory full of beautiful things I’ve only worn once.

Secondly, this is less of a, “Hey look what I have,” post and more of a sharing post. I like this photo. I like this look. I am feeling a certain way today and I just want to share it with you. Below this photo, I am going to link a spoken word poem. This poem is quoted in my profile inworld. It makes me cry on occasion. It makes me smile. I want to share it and this photo with you. If this is not your thing, you don’t like poetry, you don’t like sharing, you’re not a feely, mooshy person.. then take comfort in knowing I am not switching to doing this all of the time. I’m just in a mood today. Indulge me.

All items in this post are credited elsewhere, except the pose. The pose is from flowey. Photo was taken at The Pixel Bean. Also, I know that horizontal photos don’t show up as nicely in this blog format, so if you click the image you can see it larger on Flickr.

Have a great day!

Independence

I’m thankful to live in a country where explosions are entertainment instead of background noise.

Make sure to head over to Legal Insanity and grab one of these fantastic mesh patriotic hoodies to show your American pride, and have a wonderful 4th of July!
