Sweet Disposition

I have a secret.

Ok, no I don’t… well, I do have secrets but I’m not telling you those. The secret I’m talking about is The Secret Store, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite stores in SL. This store has both non mesh clothes and an increasing number of mesh items. I love the sweet, fun style and shopping there makes me feel like I am in on some SL fashion secret.

The newest release from The Secret Store is this adorable mesh mini skirt. It comes in seven solids, seven different color versions of the bird print version pictured below, and three other cute fabrics. The bow belt is also its own attachment, so you can wear the skirt with or without!

I also must mention these shoes from Ingenue. Just look at them. So cute. They’re available in tons of colors at Collabor88 this month.

This photo was taken on Cupcake Sim which is seriously one of the cutest places on the grid, and a fabulous place to go shopping because there are about a zillion wonderful stores represented there. That’s where I found this fun ruffly shirt from Kyoko Couture. If you’ve never been there or it’s been a while, you really should go check it out.

So, is your list full enough for now? I hope so! Have fun shopping!

SO, hopefully you’re aware that faMESHed has started its’ new round…? Well, if not, now you are.

For faMESHed, Cracked Mirror released this really cute track outfit. My good friend Maci Restless and I decided to put our new outfits to good use and take a power walk around The Grounds.

New Girl Poses @ Bounce This

Good morning! I have something exciting to show you! The oh-so-talented blogger and pose maker Bouncer Criss has released a new girl pose pack. As a blogger, I am CONSTANTLY on the hunt for great poses, and let me tell you- I like these a lot. Now, I might be a tiny bit biased because he asked me to pose for the ad photos, but as I was, I was going “aww” and “ooh” cuz I really really like them.

You can go try them out  inworld or just grab them on Marketplace! Six poses PLUS mirrors and they’re only 100L. You can’t beat that.

Here is a photo I took using one of these great new poses: 

You know you can never have too many awesome poses, so go pick them up today! Now! Go!

Cracked Mirror @ Dead Cool

Hey guys! If you’re like me, you love Halloween. If you’re not like me… well, it’s possible you still like Halloween. Either way, there’s an event going on until October 31 called Dead Cool. It has a ton of really neat Halloween stuff available from some fabulous designers. Check out the website for all the info!

I want to show you the shirts that Cracked Mirror made for the event (bonus points if you can guess which is my favorite)!

Ok, it was a trick question- I love them all. BUT the moth one especially struck my fancy because Silence of the Lambs is one of my favorite movies ever, so… if you guessed that one, then you get bonus points!

ALSO, the pigtails that I’m wearing are a new release from Wasabi Pills, now available only at faMESHed! I’ll be showing you more items from that event soon!

Raid Your Closet Challenge- Look 1

Hey! I am happy to tell you about a new blogger challenge for October! The Raid Your Closet Challenge is going to be really fun for me, AND help me stay to my newly revised SL budget! Yay!

The challenge is to make looks using things that were already in our inventories as of September 30. This means that we can’t buy ANYTHING new for these looks. We also have to use different items for every look, with a few exceptions like skin, eyes, shape… the basics. My exceptions will be the things that are the same for me in every post- eyes, lashes, skin, nails, shape.

This Challenge was proposed by Lucie Bluebird (follow link to her blog), but you can find the challenge details on [SL] Blogger Support.

I thought I’d start with a really basic look today, using some things that I’ve blogged before and still really love. It’s a great “just rolled out of bed” look, which pretty much illustrates how I’m feeling today. The setting is my home, my room, and after I post this, I miiight be crawling right back into that comfy bed with a good book and relaxing a little while longer. Anyone want to bring me some coffee?

 

Find more looks in the Raid Your Closet Challenge Flickr Group, and stay tuned every Monday for a new RYCC look from me!

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!

Blogging with Roxi!

In my last post, I was super excited to have a chance to get to know a fellow Plurker and blogger named Shayariel Teardrop for Harvest Denzo‘s Posting With Others blogger challenge. Well, I was so thrilled and flattered to be asked to post with ANOTHER amazing blogger, Roxi Bluewood!

I am always very shy when it comes to fellow bloggers, and I don’t really take much initiative to reach out, especially inworld. You never quite know if they’ll be cool, and I have a little fear of rejection. Some people take their blogger status and use it as an excuse to be a super crazy diva bitch, which I just cannot deal with. Well, let me tell you, Roxi is NOT one of those people. I am SO glad I got the chance to meet her! She is very sweet and also very talented! I’d definitely recommend adding her to your “blogs to read” list. I’m really looking forward to the next time I get to hang out with her! Here are some snapshots of our the time together:

First, some closeups!

^Look at that sweet face!! And below, you can see me wearing one of my new favorite things-  Izzie’s teeth!

The woodsy, blurry backdrop of these next two is The Grounds. I HAD to take Roxi to see one of the prettiest sims on the grid (and home to The Pixel Bean, one of my favorite places to hang!)

By the end of our time together, we were feeling like two peas in a pod and goofing of with silly faces using our Anypose Expression huds.

I almost forgot to show you the cute shoes!!

Thank you for being brave and reaching out, Roxi. I had a lot of fun hanging out and I hope this is the start of a great friendship! (Make sure to check out Roxi’s version here!!)
Roxi is wearing:
Skin: My UglyDorothy- Mary
Eyes: The Sugar Garden – Spilled Milk Eyes
Hair: Action – Alison Hair
Shirt – ColdLogic – Shirt Perdue
Pants – ColdLogic – Trouser Kime
Shoes – Monso – My Leather Oxford
Bracelet – ASO – Leather Bracelet Cross
Izzie`s – Classic Nails

Maribel is wearing:
Sweater: The Secret Store- Oversized Sweater
Scarf: {mon tissu}- Skinny Scarf
Jeans: Tres Blah- Juju Jeans
Shoes: Ingenue- Ariane
Hair: Fashionably Dead- Sunday
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard- Ultimate Eyes
Teeth: Izzie’s- Teeth Set

I usually credit poses, but at time of publication Roxi was not online for me to ask her where some of these were from (and I forgot to ask earlier, oops!) so I will ask asap and update. Sorry!!

I *can* tell you that the  pose from the shoes pose and a couple of the closeups comes from Love Me Brutal cuz that one I brought along!
