Last Snow

I have gotten to the point where I can’t do snow in SL anymore! Don’t get me wrong I love the winter season in SL and all the beautiful winter sims are truly magical, but I just need to start seeing some green! It’s been cold for too long now in RL so I need some virtual warmth. So tonight I started changing over my sim to Spring, but not before doing one last snowy picture.
I also felt I just HAD to because most of these things I have had for a while trying to put the outfit together and they just would not work in a non-snow world…lol Yes I always wear my fur cap in Spring time.

Winter Blooms

I mean to blog this outfit much sooner than now, but other things came up. I seem to be making this excuse a lot on my posts these days.

The start and inspiration for this whole outfit was the great high waisted denim skirt from Tee*fy I picked up at the last round of FaMeshed. I had planned to get it in a normal jean color, but when I got there and saw a pink one with flowers on it that threw the whole plan out the window!
I paired it with one of the nice knit sweaters out from Maitrey, some tights from Mon Tissu and bulky scarf from Izzie’s. I finished it all off with a pair of my favorite boots from Naughty. They are a little dated, but still hold up with the quality.

I am still being inspired by Kyoots Portlandia tops. Here is another outfit that evokes the feeling of Portland.

Put A Bird On It!

Kyoot just came out with 4 tops inspired by the show Portlandia. Being from Portland I felt obligated to buy them, but they are totally cute so there was no real arm twisting.

I am wearing the “Put a bird on it” top, which happens to be one of my favorite skits from the show. I suggest checking out the tops and the show.
Also new is this cute mesh maxi skirt from Apple May Designs. She has included two versions of the skirt in the pack, one that shows the feet and one that does not, and I am so happy to have the options.
Gosh I have done a bit of shopping lately… I also have on a new hair. I made a trip to the Mesh Madness event that was a huge mistake! Every which way I turned there was something else I wanted to buy. Unfortunately my linden wallet only allowed for a few purchases and this hair from Wasabi Pills made the cut!

Pink Lemonade and PANTS!

When mesh came out I was a little iffy about people rushing to use it for clothing. I didn’t think for most things it would work well because there is no way to edit it.. not even to adjust the placement of it. Also because the mesh item would be made to fit the creator and I definitely don’t have the same body as most creators as I always have to adjust the things I buy.
Well I am here to eat my words! I am fully on the mesh clothing bandwagon now and all thanks to these great pants from Celoe. In my opinion they have to be the single most awesome pants in existence! Celoe is one of a collective of creators to use a standard sizing chart for mesh clothing. The data for the standard sizing was taken right from us the consumers and more to my amazement… I fit into one of the sizes! I only had to fiddle with my hips by about one or two points, so little that no one but me would ever know I changed. I seriously love these pants so much I never want to take them off. I also wish the makers of Celoe would now make a wide legged denim pant. *hinthintsmile*

Today I decided to dress down the trousers by wearing sneakers instead of heels. I added in one of my film crew shirts from Friday and threw on a nice bright yellow cardigan from Tres Blah. I have a soft spot for sweaters and cardigans and I think before too long I will own every color of these ones from Tres Blah. They are so cute and a perfect length.
My necklace I got at a past colabr88 from Fashionably Dead and now i wish I bought more because I have not seen it in the main store. (Maybe I am not looking in the right spot.. if someone sees them in the store please let me know!) I am usually not a big accessories person and tend to not like jewelery in Secondlife at all other than a few piercings. This necklace has changed all that. Or maybe it’s only for this necklace I have changed my mind. I can’t really say what it is about it that I love so much either. Perhaps because it reminds me of a broken off crystal necklace I ha as a kid. What ever it is.. I have been finding ways to incorporate this necklace into a lot of my outfits since buying it.
Gosh I didn’t realize how much spending I had done lately till writing this. My hair is also new! I used to always wear pink hair and I think it’s high time I went back to it. Picked this hair up at Boon along with a couple more. I really like a lot of their newer hairs, I will be making a trip back there as soon as I have more funds.
If you are in need of a new skin I highly suggest checking out Leafy. She has a few different ones out… today I am wearing the newest one called Nova. They are all gorgeous and all I have been wearing for the last 3 months!

Yay! Fall is here again!

I love Fall! I think it’s one of the most fun seasons to dress for in both real life and secondlife. This Fall season brought us another Seasons Hunt… sadly the LAST one. 😦 It was the one hunt I really looked forward to. I hope you all went out hunting because there were a lot of awesome prizes from the stores involved.
