Winter Winds

First, let me tell you where I got the style inspiration for these photos. I was searching for a hair to wear with this outfit and i wasn’t finding quite what i wanted, when Oakley Foxtrot posted THIS BLOG POST on Plurk. I was like, “OOH! I have that hair!” I also really liked the snow idea, so I looked up a tutorial on how to make snow! So, thank you, Oakley. You totally inspired me.

Now, the third annual With Love Hunt is just around the corner (starts November 30th)! Want to see some of the stuff you’ll find in the hunt? Yeah, I thought so.

Take a gander at this beautiful coat.  Everything in this hunt is valued at or over 400L, but is available for just 10L. This jacket. 10L. Dude.

Now, please direct your attention to the skin on my face here.  Yeap. I drooled a little, too. Again, 10L. Ten stinking Linden. You’re not going to miss this hunt, are you?

From the CHIC Blog:

“The third annual With Love Hunt returns November 30th gridwide! It will begin at Cheeky Pea’s mainstore at 4pm SLT. We will post a list of hints and slurls to the stores nearer the time. There will be 76 boxes containing a product worth 400L or more for sale at 10L in each participating store.”

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!

Hey guys! I have been so busy in RL the last week, and I’m super behind on blogging. Fear not, though! This week is “get caught back up” week!

Ok, so let me show you this new release from fri.day! The Kristen.Jacket is closely tailored and has really cute button loop closures. Underneath the jacket, I’m wearing the new Cliquester.Tank, which got me to thinking since the tank colors are all named after cliques. What clique were you in when you were in school?

I also need to tell you about two more things. One, is this realllly neat ring. It’s by *sMoov*, and it is super cool. When you click it, it plays music! There are different versions of the ring in the store on the Marketplace.

Also, these shoes- they’re the RARE color in the Ingenue gatcha at The Arcade. Ready to hate me? I got them on the first try! I was super excited.

Autumn Loveliness @ Izzie’s & Tres Blah @ The Arcade

Hello!! SO, yesterday I showed you a bunch of stuff I got at The Arcade. Today, I have one more item to show you! The scarf I’m wearing is from Tres Blah’s gatcha. There are 10 different scarves to win and at 100L per play, you know you’ll want to pick up more than one of these cozy scarves for fall!

Speaking of fall, check out this sim I’m on. This fall paradise is the home of Izzie’s! This is actually not the first time I’ve blogged about her sim. One of my first posts ever was about her beautiful spring landscaping. (Wow, my avatar looked different!) Anyways, the sim looks amazing and not only can you take some lovely photos there, but also make sure to pop in and shop at the store! Izzie’s has clothes, nails, skins, eyes, teeth, poses… you really must go see.

Last but not least, Bounce This Poses has released some new girly poses! There are two new girl pose packs that come with 6 poses each PLUS mirrors, and they’re only 100L per pack!

Sassy @ Zombie Popcorn (Last Rotation)

Hey guys! So, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is, Zombie Popcorn Brand is in its last rotation. After September 15, ZP will close its doors in SL forever. I know, it’s very sad.

The GOOD news is, it’s not closed YET and there are lots of great things for you to grab before it’s over! One of those great things is this super hot Military Dress by Sassy.

It’s all system clothing layers and prims, which is awesome for those of you who don’t fit or wear mesh! It come in solids and camo (there’s even a pink one!), with a collar up or down option. Check out the Zombie Popcorn Blog to see more item previews and hurry over to ZP before it’s gone!!

fri.day @ Collabor88

Hi guys! So, I already told you about this round of Collabor88, but I want to show you another cute piece you can find there!

This jacket from fri.day comes in 5 lovely colors. I really like the collar and the texture. The dress I am wearing underneath is from Tres Blah. It is not mesh and actually has *gasp* prim attachments, but it is so well made that it will take a mesh remake of this exact dress to get me to part with it. I actually own a few versions of this dress. I’m also wearing one of [elikatira]’s newer hairs. It’s a little different than the usual braid. It’s all gathered and looped in the back, and it gives this style lots of dimension and makes it stand out from other braids out there.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

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!
