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.

Floral Kitty


Just a simple outfit that came together after getting the floral dress from The Secret Store on FLF. I felt the ensemble needed tights which was a good thing because I had been dying to use these cute kitty tights from Jim.

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.

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!

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.

Pastel Light


I absolutely love the high wasted jeans from the Secret Store. Even more in love when I found they came in pastel colors! I have an outfit immediately come to mind. I was a little sad that I could not get the tucked tee from Tres Blah to work (the one made for the high waist maxi skirt) with the jeans. They are picture in the ad from The Secret Store for the pants, but when I put on mine there was a pretty big noticeable gap between the bottom the shirt and the top of the pants and you can see skin. I donno if there is something extra I am supposed to do to get it to work with them like in the ad picture. I ended up going to Tee*fy and getting one of their tanks made for high waist items (also pictured in the ad for the pants in The Secret Store).
I ran into a little snag when I went to put on the cardigan, but thankfully Toki Doki has excellent customer service! I had bought the fat pack of these sweaters from Toki Doki when they came out in the summer. (One of the few things I have ever fatpacked.) When I went looking for this one I realized my fat pack was missing all the printed options of the cardigan. When I bought it I never thought to look to make sure they were all there. I went to the store to see if there was a redelivery system (those things rock) thinking maybe the pack had been fixed and if I got it redelivered I’d get my missing sweaters, but no redelivery. I could see in the fat pack out in the store that the printed ones were in there. I was sad and not quite sure what to do. It had been such a long time since I bought them I did not have my transaction history to prove I bought them. I took a chance though and messaged the creator of Toki Doki and included a screen shot of my inventory showing the sweaters and crossed my fingers that she would not think I was scamming her. My replacement cardigans were sent right out to me! *does happy dance* I was already a pretty big fan of Toki Doki, but this made me even more of one! Thank you!
