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!

Purple Lemon


After many days of trying to get to Collaber88 I finally made it! I only grabbed a few things to start, these should hold me over until it’s a littler easier to get back in.

I saw this Celoe dress on someone else and have been dying to try it on every since. So it was the first thing I snagged when I finally got in. It’s so cute and I already have ideas for other outfits using it.

My shoes are from Tulip and also at this month’s C88. They come in so many colors it was really hard to choose which ones to get. My first thought was black as usual, but I end up with so many shoes in black. I have been trying to branch out more with some color. I ended up getting a red-ish leather looking color thinking it can add color, but still a natural neutral so can go with a lot of things.

Tulip also has two other style shoes out at C88, I might have to go get them as well. It will be a chance to get some different colors.

I also picked up the Lyra necklace from Maxi Gossamer. You can change the chain color and there are different stone colors you can change on touch.

Denim and Stripes


I finally made it to FaMeshed and it is another event this month simply packed with great new items. It’s FaMeshed’s one year anniversary and the creators have out done themselves. At the moment I have only bought a few things. I am trying to pace myself and not go overboard. I tend to spend too much and not really think about it and then half the time not wear what I buy. So I am trying to be a little more conservative with my money.
The first thing I bought was this denim jacket from Emery. I have been longing for a mesh denim jacket just like this for ages now.
I am pretty much a sucker for cute and kind of frilly skirts, so after the jacket I made a bee-line to Tee*fy’s booth. They have lovely light summer dresses out and also skirts. I got one of the skirts this time, but only because I am having a horrible time choosing which color of the dress to get.

Casual Cute


Just a simple casual outfit today, but I figured even if I am going for casual no reason to not be cute! Easily pulled off with these adorable heart jeans I picked up a few Fifty Linden Fridays ago from Elate.
I paired it with a lovely new top from Decoy. (Well new as in a month ago. As per my running theme I am a little late with this post.) I’ll be going back for the other colors of this top for sure. It’s so cute and well made. It also have a version in each color with a pattern on it, so many uses for it and perfect for Spring and Summer.

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.

Rockabillies


First joint blog post with Voshie Paine! We’ve known each other for over 5 years in Secondlife (plus a few more out of Secondlife) and this is the FIRST time we have come together for a blog post. I had a lot of fun and hope we can do it again.
Voshie was already all dolled up in her rockabilly wear and I was half way there when she suggested we do pictures together. No need to twist my arm.. I already had an idea in my head of things I was going to blog later this week anyways so I quickly changed (well as quickly as I could with having to run to the store for new shoes that is).
