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.

Bad Wolf


One of my favorite pieces from last month’s C88 is this loose cardi with optional built in top from Auxiliary. I was so glad it came with the top made to go under the sweater already, it can be so hard to layer things with mesh if they are not made exactly for each other or made really loose. For those that want to try and layer with their own top there it is also set up to wear it with out the shirt. However the top comes with a bunch of print options so you can wear it many times and always look like you have something new. I love the cropped top for spring and summer, but also kinda wish they would make a full length top that could be an optional buy too. *cough cough hint hint*

The mood I was in called for ripped denim shorts and snagged tights, so of course that also meant I had to wear my Fashionably Dead Bossy Boots. I am only just now realizing this was an average outfit for me in high school (only with a full shirt). No wonder I love it so much and have not changed my avatar in over a week.

Fall Silk


There are a lot of great things at the Season Story, this top from Tram is one I could not live with out. I loved how flowy and silky it looked. I am wearing it with the add on collar which adds a great automatic layer effect. There are also lots of options of the add on collar so many uses for the top.
I paired it with some simple trousers and a high boot for more of a fall look.
My pose is from Ploom and I will be honest I have never bought a pose from there before. I needed something new and knew they had poses because I always see them when the note card goes out for new hairs. I decided to see what they had to offer and I was very pleasantly surprised. I a kinda on the broke side at the moment and was just looking for a single pose (as that was all I could afford), but I will definitely be going back to Ploom for more poses. A really nice bonus for buying poses in packs from Ploom is they offer a curvy version of each pose in the pack. I think this is awesome because some times my hips seem a bit wider than the average for poses. Also curvy sized poses are great with some poofy clothes. If you just need single poses they do also offer the curvy ones for single purchase too.

Yellow Ruffle


I love this new hair from Truth! He has updated all his textures and added a bunch of new ones. My instant favorite new color pack is Colours as it’s full of all the fun colors and most important like 4 different pink hair textures! Another great thing he’s done is to reorganize how his more natural hair colors are package. Each pack has the usual natural hair in various shades, but he’s also included dip dyed version right in the packs. So a brown pack would have different shades of browns as well as a brown hair with dipped ends of pink, blue, etc. I like this because I love wearing dip dyed hairs, but I also like having just the normal colors for occasions where dip dyed doesn’t look right. Usually I would only be able to do this by buying multiple packs to get ll the variety I wanted, but now it’s easier than ever to get a range of hairs in just one pack. At least at Truth.

I loved the hair so much it inspired me to even enter the Truth Model Search. That’s my entry above. If you want to enter you still have till the 1st of June to take a picture of you wearing a hair from the new Truth shop and enter it in the Flickr group for the contest. I figure it’s a long shot, there are so many amazing pictures entered, but what can it hurt? Nothing to lose.

I am finally getting around to blogging the supporting outfit I had together for the picture. Even though I planned from the start to only have a waist up picture for the contest entry I felt the need to put a full outfit together.
Plus the second thing in this post I love is this ruffle corset top from Ingenue! It comes in a bunch of different fun and summery color combos, it was so hard to pick just one.
I felt like being a little simple with the rest of the outfit and just paired the bright top with some jeans and nude pumps.

Blazer Kitty


I wasn’t ready to take the kitty tights off yet so I had to come up with another look for them. I pretty much already had the idea, I just had to head back to FaMeshed and grab a few more items I had on my WANT list.
This trip I picked up one of the Structured Blazers from The Secret Store. This jacket is great and superbly made. I put the blazer over the Basic Tank from House of Fox which I also picked up at FaMeshed.

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.

Gone to the Beach


Collaber88 has opened for this month and it is absolutely full of wonderful goodies! There are so many things I want and after a full day of trying to get in, once I was finally there I was too overwhelmed by everything I wanted I only bought one thing. For now at least, I will go back to get more later.

The one thing i did get right off was the Just Frills top from Aux. I had been seeing the work in progress pictures and I was already dying for this top before it came out. It’s so cute and perfect for summer!

Also a bit more silliness from me today. I went searching for a nice beach to take my picture and after a kind person tossed me an LM to a cute beach I totally forget the main idea and basically crop everything but water out of the picture. *facepalm* there had been cute scenery in the back, but I am kind of ditzy today I guess. Maybe I need a nap so I can better remember my plans just five minutes after making them.
