Feeling Vargas

Pin-up
I meant to blog this outfit for 4th of July, but RL work kind of got crazy and sucked away all my free time. But that’s okay, had I done the post then I would not have had time to wipe out this very Vargas-esque pose.
My adorable sailor outfit is from The Secret Store. It came in all kind of colors including pastels and while I was very tempted to get pink, the red blue just felt right to me. Ingenue has the perfect shoes to pair with the outfit complete with little anchor buttons on the back strap. The whole outfit just screamed classic pin-up to me so where better to go for pose inspiration than the work of Alberto Vargas.

Bon Appetit


I’m a sucker for a retro inspired dress, so it was a no brainer when I saw The Secret Store Dress at this month’s Collaber88. It made me feel so pretty and girly and like I wanted to strap on an apron and bake a cake… very Donna Reed.
I finished off the look with these cute Sophia heels from Ingenue and swept up half do from Lamb, both also at this month’s Collaber88.

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!

Snow Fall


I loved this cape coat instantly when I saw it at last month’s Collabor88, I just didn’t feel cold enough in SL yet to wear it so I held off until the snow started falling on my land. Then I just got to busy with all the holidays I completely forgot about it. Now that I have some free time I am finally getting a chance to blog some of the winter outfits I have put together this month, but never posted about.

It’s a good thing I did wait because most the other things I am wearing did not come up until this month or even in just the last couple of weeks. My adorable bear ear muffs at this round of Collabor88. I couldn’t find a hair I owned that worked well with the earmuffs though, but I was in luck because this hair the Truth released yesterday or the day before (I donno I have not been in SL for a couple days cause of family things) works perfectly!

My boots are also from this month’s C88. I originally got them to wear with a steampunk outfit because they kind have that feel, but I loved them too much to not wear them right now. They are from Ingenue, who is becoming one of my very favorite places to get shoes. Each month she is in C88 I always check her stall first because they are usually shoes and usually shoes I cannot live with out.

The dress is the new Poise dress from Maitreya which fits nicely under the cape if you just where a size or two larger of the cape. I love this dress so much and have so many ideas on ways to wear it, but I will go into that in a later post when it’s more visible.

Cozy Winter


I bought this coat a while ago from a round of C88 and immediately this outfit popped into my head. I have been impatiently waiting for winter sims to start popping up so I could actually wear the outfit an have somewhere to take a lovely picture. Finally we are enough into late Fall for snow to start falling in SL (and not seem too crazy).

This morning while scrolling through my Flickr came across pictures of the beautiful sim Felicity Blumenthal did and thought it was the perfect place to take a picture. You can see more pictures of the sim HERE

I love this coat and its little peter pan collar. It screamed winter scene to me, but there were a bunch of colors that make it work for many outfits. I choose this dark green because, well, Christmas was already on my mind when I bought it so I just went with an idea. It feels so classic to me so I paired it with a cute little fur muff from Junbug. I feel like i could be in a Currier and Ives picture.

Feather Sheer


My new favorite hair of the moment is Tamora from Chemistry. I love the fluffy waviness of it, for some reason it reminds me of Hermione and her wild hair. I had not been to Chemistry in a while so it was a great surprise to see all the new hair textures and the very large packs the hair is sold in now. So much variety! I love this new trend with hair creators and having a bunch of colors sold in pack on a HUD. It’s so much easier on the inventory not having all those separate hairs. Also in a lot of the packs now there tends to be more than just one hair color I wear so I like the feeling of getting more use for my money.

I made it to FaMESHed this week and boy are there a ton of great things for this month’s round. One of my favorite buys was this cardigan from Mutresse. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of them before. But then some times I can put on blinders to brands I am not familiar with. Anyway, this cardigan is so cute and well fitting! At first I was a little ehhh paying nearly 400L for just a sweater, but then I realized it was not really just ONE sweater. It includes all options! There are 24 fabric options for the sweater in a few different patters and colors and plains, plus 7 color options for each the buttons, the trim and the sheer part. There are so many combinations one could make with this, I am happy I bought it now.
