Life in the Shadows


This month the theme at Genre is Gothic. It’s been ages since I dressed more on the darker side and I was inspired to change up my bright pinks for a while. The main inspiration for the change was the beautiful pale skins from La Petite Morte out at Genre. I am wearing the darker of the two shades offered and the even paler still tone is just as beautiful.

For the rest of my outfit I went inventory diving. Yay! Saving money is fun!
Oh wait… except my hair. *sigh* didn’t save as much money as I thought.
I am so totally in love with this hair style and the fun dye colors it comes in. There are two different packs of the fun dip dyes and I think I might have to go back for the other pack. It was really hard to choose which one when i was shopping the first time around.
It’s called Baby from Taketomi which I had never really heard of although I think I saw something that they are re-branded from another hair store.
I have never understood the constant re-branding some stores do, especially when they are still around and producing. I totally get if you leave SL for a while then come back and want to do something new. I’m not saying that’s what this store did, just a little extra Dizzy Thoughts for ya.

Skate Through Life


Just a fun little outfit that came together after yet another trip to both The Arcade and C88. I am pretty much doomed when it comes to this round of C88. The theme that most things were made in is right up my ally.

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!

Tangerine Kisses


Just a simple little look today. Originally I was going to get this dress in pink, but when I saw the orange tones one something just called to me. I’ve always liked the way teal and orange look together and thankfully the exact heart tights I was thinking of from my inventory came in the perfect shade I was looking for.
The top of the dress is just a white tank and I felt that was too plain so I had to have something over it. Thankfully around the time i was putting this outfit together (yes I have been running around in it for a while forgetting to post it) FaMESHED had opened and Emery has this cute little leather jacket there.

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.

2013 here I come!


All dolled up and ready to have some fun tonight and ring in the new year! Still looking for that perfect dress for a night of fun in SL, well you should definitely head down to Maitreya and check out the new Frenzy Party dress that went out yesterday. It’s cute, fun, flirty and covered in glitter! What more do you need for a New Year party!? I got the purple with flex of pink glitter, but it comes in so many colors it was hard to pick just one.

I headed back to Dutch Touch to grab a skin with make up on it (as I tend to only wear bare faced skins). I ended up buying 3 more skins… I hate when stores close and leave. How am I to know what I will need from them for the future?! If you have not headed down to Dutch Touch yet to get any last minute skins I suggest you high tail it down there because today is the last day! This one I am wearing today is Fiep in make up 5.
