Dizzy Had A Little Lamb


Nothing says Spring more than a cute flower dress and a baby lamb if you ask me! I was feeling especially Spring-y this week in this cute skirt and off the shoulder top I got at C88 from Tee*fy. It worked really well with the Oxford heels The Secret Store was offering which is awesome because I LOVE the shoes and was dying to wear them. C88 is just about done for this round so you better get down there to see if there is anything you missed.

I have been really bad this month. I have yet another new skin. Damn that Skin Fair! *shakes fist*
This is Emma from Essences and I could not get it off my mind. At first I was not going to get it because I had gotten a few others, but I kept thinking about it and putting the demo on.
I have been so lost for a skin since Dutch Touch stopped making skins. I would still wear Dutch Touch (and proudly did until just a 3 months ago), but since becoming a Slink mesh hand and feet convert I only wear skins with appliers. I know I can manually match the tone, but it doesn’t look the same as it does with the actual skin applied to the mesh. I have tearfully set aside my Dutch Touch skins, still hoping one day Iki will come back even if just to make appliers, and started searching for a new skin.
It’s been really hard. I wore Dutch Touch for YEARS non stop, I came to feel I was not me if I was not in my Dutch Touch skin and so now nothing feels like me. Then I put on this new Essences Emma skin and I see elements to it that drew me to DT skins too. This is the most me I have felt since taking off my DT skin. Emma has a cute little button like nose and a really great shape to her mouth, she is just beautiful. This is my favorite skin to come from Essences yet!

Off To Market


Just a simple and easy Spring outfit today.
I am so completely in love with this braided hair from Magika, I have been wearing it since it first came out. It made me feel really comfortable so I just threw on some basic shorts from Mon Tissu I have had forever and a cute striped sweater from *Shai*.
Once I got the outfit together it gave me a feel like I should be doing something very typically spring and because of where I am that made farmer’s markets pop up. Thankfully I remembered seeing a market set up at the It All Starts With A Smile Sim and it gave me a great chance to use the market bag i got from Lark at the March Arcade.

I highly suggest checking out It All Starts With A Smile. It’s a very lovely place to take picture, wander around or just sit and hang out. It’s been very well put together with many different little areas with different themes and feels.

Smell The Flowers


Spring is in the air which for mean usually means cute skirts and dresses. This month at Collabor88 they have just that… cute skirts and dresses. The theme looks kinda office-y, but as usual everything can work for many different themes.
My skirt is the silk skater skirt from Milk Motion and it’s animated! I don’t know if this is the first ever animated piece of mesh clothing, but it sure is the first I have ever seen. There is a version that stays still, one that only animate when you walk and one that always animates. It’s a really interesting feature, although I am just using the non-moving one.
I went crazy trying to find just the right top for the mood I was in to wear with the skirt. I went all over the place and nothing jumped out at me. I finally made it back to C88 and sitting right there in front of me from Fishy Strawberry was pretty much the exact shirt I had been looking for. And WHAT LUCK! It was not too short nor too long, but tucked in at just the right place to work perfectly with the skirt. Some times with mesh is can me so hard to put things together that are not made for each other.
I also picked up this really cute top bun hair from Clawtooh and some chunky framed glasses from Yummy at this month’s C88.


There is so much going on right now in SL, I donno where to go next! If you are having problems figuring out what event to hit up next, take it from me, skin fair should definitely be near the top of your list. So many great great artists there and Spring is a great time to try out a new look for the warmer months.
I am wearing Ari from Dead Apples, their first skin and I am in love! It is one of my top favorites from this year’s fair. The skin has such a sweet face with a cute little nose that makes me want to just smoosh it and lips that look just yummy! I know that is a weird way to describe lips, but they make me want to bite my lip, so .. yummy. But my favorite part of the skin, and this may sound a little weird, is the part on either side of the nose that goes into the cheeks and under eye area. It’s hard to explain, but I love how it looks puffy. It’s a great detail that most skins don’t have and I think it adds a little something to the skin. I can’t wait to see what other great skins come from Dead Apples!
