Winter Blues


I love Winter, but I am getting to the point of being so over it now. I am ready for warmer weather and the chance to shed a few layers of clothes too. Can’t really do that in real life as the weather where I am has been steady in the 30’s, but SL fashion is the perfect answer to the problem.
Just a simple little outfit today. The baby doll is from Tres Blah out at C88 this month and I just love it! It’s very similar to one that was put out at C88 from Tres Blah before, but this time it has sequins. It just amazes me the quality of detail that can be put into clothes these days in SL. This dress is a great example of that with its gossamer over layer of sheer fabric. That could not have been done to this level of detail and success even just a few years ago.
I paired it with some cute new dip dyed tights from Songbird. They come in sheer and opaque versions of each color. I have the white dipped ones, but they also come in black dipped. They are simple and cute and I see me wearing them with a lot of outfits in the near future.
My hair is not new, but I had forgotten I bought it so it feels new. Elikatira is having a huge sale. Everything is marked down and after the sale it will all be retired, so if you have not made a trip out there I suggest you do. It’s a great time to pick up other colors of hairs you already have if you are like me and already have most the hairs you want, or to give some alts a make over. I discovered I had this hair when I was about to buy it… again. Thankfully I paused and thought to do a search in my inventory to see if I might have already bought it.

Lazy Days

It’s been a couple of gray and rainy days here so as usual that means I stay in and have a bit of a lazy day. Of course that also leads to lazy days in SL too so this comfy outfit was put together.

Pink Glow of Sunset


Just a simple look of the day today.
I really liked the dress u.f.o had out for Collaber88 this month, it was very hard to pick a color. The outfit just sort of came together after that.
I am also really enjoying the blond hair! I can’t believe I didn’t try it out sooner.

Easy Layers


In Fall I love to wear lots of different layers, but with mesh that can sometimes be a bit more challenging to do. Thankfully ColdLogic has made the layered look with mesh a whole lot easier! Their last few releases have been layered looks all in one. In this outfit the long sleeved blue tunic dress top, over sweater and the scarf are all one piece! It also has an option to wear just the under top alone as well. I have been living in this outfit for a week straight, I love it so much!

Summer Dress


I am a little late blogging this, but better late than never right?
I can’t express how much I am in love with this dress! It’s adorable and if I had the money I would get it in the other four colors it comes in. I picked this up at the Culture Shock event from the store Spright, which I had never heard of before seeing them at the event. I eagerly await seeing what new things they will have out in future.

I have also bought my first pair of footed shoes! I was a hold out for ages. I was always worried I’d be one of those people walking around with feet a totally different color than my skin and just look ridiculous. A few months ago I happened to get the demo for Maitreya’s Yaxkin sandal/feet shoes. They were exactly the type of shoe I had been looking for in both SL and RL, but I was still scared of them. So for months I would take out the demo every few days and try it on again. Asked countless friends if it was really hard to match up skin tone. Not only was I scared of matching up the skin, but the shoes cost a pretty penny and would take most my money so I had to be sure.
I finally caved and I regret wasting so much time in getting these shoes! The feet are so well made and are some of the most realistic SL feet I have ever seen. To make skin matching easier Maitreya has added in values for a lot of popular skin brands and tones already so it was super simple to match up. Of course my skin I am currently wearing was included in the list so I have not tried to adjust the feet to a skin not listed, but with so many options I think it wont be that hard. I have not really taken the shoes off since buying them! Now i just need to find the exact pair in real life and I will be set.
