Sunshine Splash

I have been sitting on this outfit for a while. I meant to blog it ages ago, but got really lazy. I guess it’s a good thing beings I found better things to go with it at the new rounds of Arcade and Collaber88. Always fun when procrastination pays off.
I picked up the dress from last round (or a few rounds ago I really forget, I have been wearing this dress forever it seems) of C88. I immediately had an idea for it, but finding the items I needed in SL was another thing all together. I never could find exactly what I pictured in my head, but I got pretty close.
Unbelievably I have changed out of my Dutch Touch skin (for this post anyways). I have on Mirte from The Skinnery, my first Skinnery skin. I kept seeing it on a friend and everytime would ask her what the skin was… I am sure much to her annoyance. I figured I should go check it out if it caught my attention enough to ask every time I saw it. The Skinnery is definitely a place I will keep my eye on from now on!

Roses n’ Bows

Taking a break from all the winter wear… today I am wearing this adorable dress from BOOM. Tons of wonderfully sculpted roses give a hopeful glimpse at what’s waiting just on the other side of Winter weather.
I paired it with a pair of black “Fit to be Tied” Gloves new from La Petite Morte. They come in a variety of colors and of course each has a cute over sized bow at the wrist.
Also new is my skin from Tres Blah called Honey Bunny.

LOTD 10/9/10

Gray and wet day where I live this weekend so I countered it with a fun and colorful outfit in SL. Plus while on the Seasons Hut I found this really cute skirt at Ingenue and was dying to wear it. The new mini vest from Boom seemed a perfect topper for the fuffy skirt. To add another punch of color O tossed on a bright v-neck from Friday and some striped stockings from Katat0nik. Now I feel like going dancing!

Fall Stuffs

Since going to the live show last month I have been listening to a lot of Rasputina. They were already my favorite bad for the last two years running, but after seeing them live they are even more! So I was a little inspired by their music and kinda a Nouveau Victorian vibe.
I really love the clothing of fall. It’s not too cold yet so you can still wear cute little dresses an really only need to add maybe a little sweater and some cute leggings. I started with the ruffle dress from So Many Styles which reminded me a bit of an old under garment and that was my connection to Rasputina. Then added some cute floral leggings from Kyoot that were out a while ago for 50L Friday and then my newish lace up boots from G-Field (which I gushed over already in a previous post). The sweater is a lace cardigan I bought ages ago from *COCO*. I so wish they had done the lace cardigan as a separate item from the other cardigans in this batch and added multiple colors of lace.. I would have totally bought the fat pack for it. My necklace is also a past 50L Friday item from Whippet&Buck and it has lots of little details that are a little hard to see in the pictures.
My skin is one of the special Tres Blah skins for Designers United and I am so happy I remembered to run over there and get it as yesterday was the last day of the event. I love the freckles with this skin. It might be hard to see in the picture, but they are wonderful freckles and my favorite one is just down on the tip of the lip. I donno why I, but I find that single little freckle very endearing.
When I was looking for a hair for my outfit it was pretty much a no brainer that I’d wear one of my new Lamb hairs and Lovage was perfect. I love the whispy feel of this hair. It’s coiled on top slightly to the side, but done very loosely and gives this feeling that at any moment the pins are going to fall out and the hair will come tumbling down. I think it’s pretty awesome to have that sense of possible movement and aliveness in a non moving pixel hair.
