Happy Thanksgiving & Some Newness

Darlings, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. If you’re not from the U.S., I hope you have a lovely day as well!  This is probably my honest-to-goodness favorite holiday. No presents, no hype, just family and food and lots of love and time for reflection on the year and all we have to be truly thankful for. I am humbled and amazed by all that I have to be thankful for. I couldn’t even list it all if I wanted to. I do want to say to you, though- thank you. Thank you for listening to my ramblings, looking at my stuff, and just spending some time to let me into your life a little. I have so much fun putting together looks and writing my silly little posts, and it makes me happy to know that there’s someone else out there who gets some enjoyment from it, too. So, thanks for letting me share my stuff with you. <3

ON TO THE NEWNESS!

The Secret Store and Nyu have collaborated AGAIN and this time, they bring us this lovely Camille Dress! I really adore the lace collar on this. The shape of it is so cool. OK, and this hair. It’s called Joy, and it’s Wasabi Pills’ newest release. It is very aptly named, as it truly does bring joy to my pixel noggin. There is also a bang-less (fringe-less?) version of this hair, called Joy 2. 

I’m going to leave this post short because I have lots of turkey and cranberries to gobble! Have a lovely Thanksgiving, everyone!

Hey guys. RL has been rough, so I apologize for not blogging consistently. Let me show you some lovely things.

I wish I had time to write wonderful things about all of these pieces, but can we just say they’re awesome and then you go buy it all? I mean… look at it. You want it even without me saying anything at all, don’t you?

Yes, yes you do.

Stuck on You

Do you ever put an outfit together and never want to take it off? It just feels right. For me, this outfit is just the right amount of sexy and classy and fun. I have seriously been wearing it inworld for like 4 days now, which is insane for me. I usually change clothes multiple times a day.

You may have noticed from the past few posts that I have changed skins.  I’ve been kind of in a funk lately, and what better way to break a funk than by making a dramatic change!? I have always really like Mother Goose’s skins but I’d never been quite sure if I could pull one off. All that changed when I demo’d this skin. I fell in love instantly. It is very different from my usual, but still feels like me. I am very happy with it. The only thing I’d mention on the negative side is that some of the body detail is not my favorite, like the hipbones are a little too defined and the shading on the butt is a little odd, but I’m not naked in SL enough for that to deter me. The face and collarbone are usually the big selling points for me in a skin, and this one really hits the mark. I added R.icielli’s freckles over top to complete the look and I cannot stop camming myself. Yeah, I’m one of those.

On to the hair. Magika has released three, yes THREE gorgeous new hairs. They are called Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. I got the dipped color palette for the first time and ugh, I cannot tell you how much I love them without sounding like a complete crazy person. If you can try these hairs on and not want to buy every single one, I don’t even know what to say to you.

I found these jeans while on Marketplace, searching for a pair of mesh skinny jeans that I don’t see everyone and their mother wearing. I had never heard of Etchaflesh, but I hopped over to the inworld store and demo’d. I really really like these jeans a lot. They fit great, the texture is really well done, and my ass looks fabulous. What more could you want?

Last but certainly not least, I almost always pick up the Marukin pose packs at Collabor88, and if you do any type of SL photography, you should too. The poses are always really nice, and since it’s Collabor88, they’re discounted!

See why I never want to take this off? Thank goodness you can’t smell your av in SL because mine might be a little ripe.

Such Great Heights

So, unless you’ve been living under a rock you may have heard of the Cinema event that is currently running. This event is SO cool. A ton of amazing designers have gotten together to bring you all sorts of movie-inspired items. You can read more about this event here!

I am so excited to to show you one of the hairs from Alice Project that’s available at Cinema. It’s called Willow and it’s absolutely fabulous. It comes in two different parts, the blowing hair and small braids (enlarge photo below to see braids better). This way, you can wear it with or without the braids.  It also has a version that blows straight out, one that is angled up and one that is angled downward. As is the case with all Alice Project hairs, it also has the amazing HUD that allows you to change the textures forever and never run out of awesome options. This hair can appropriately be called epic. I almost never use “epic” because the internet people ruined it for me (yes, you) but this is a valid use of the word. Suck it.

I also need to tell you about this beautiful dress by The Secret Store & NYU. It’s a collaboration piece and I really hope to see more of these because this one came out so great. The dress comes in 10 different colors and can be worn in so many ways. It was originally released for Lazy Sunday but it is now available at regular price.

OH, one last thing I’d like to mention. When going to Cinema, as with all large events, PLEASE PLEASE dress down and remove as many scripts as you can. There IS a script gate at Cinema. I believe the limit is 50 scripts, but less is always better. Wear system clothes, remove your HUDS (you know you don’t need them while shopping) and wear unscripted hair and shoes, etc. I have even heard of people who wear full alphas, remove their AO, and just go invisible. I go, look at everything, grab demos, and take them home to try them on. Then, I go back later to get what I want. When we all do little things like this, it helps EVERYONE to have a better experience and greatly reduces lag. Don’t be a selfish shopper!
