Feeling Vargas

Pin-up
I meant to blog this outfit for 4th of July, but RL work kind of got crazy and sucked away all my free time. But that’s okay, had I done the post then I would not have had time to wipe out this very Vargas-esque pose.
My adorable sailor outfit is from The Secret Store. It came in all kind of colors including pastels and while I was very tempted to get pink, the red blue just felt right to me. Ingenue has the perfect shoes to pair with the outfit complete with little anchor buttons on the back strap. The whole outfit just screamed classic pin-up to me so where better to go for pose inspiration than the work of Alberto Vargas.

Turtle Beach


There were so many things I wanted to blog from last month’s Collaber88 and I just did not get to them in time!. I put together a bunch of outfits, but then could not find places I to take pictures that completed the vision I had in my head. And then I got a new job in RL! That’s been taking a lot of my plus my scheduling is just all over the place.

I guess procrastinating worked out for this outfit! I found the hair at the June Collaber88 and my little turtle from is from June Arcade (which is almost over!) I also got my adorable froggy flip flops at the Arcade from Erratic. They are so cute they make me wish I could wear flip flops in RL and had a pair just like them.

Bon Appetit


I’m a sucker for a retro inspired dress, so it was a no brainer when I saw The Secret Store Dress at this month’s Collaber88. It made me feel so pretty and girly and like I wanted to strap on an apron and bake a cake… very Donna Reed.
I finished off the look with these cute Sophia heels from Ingenue and swept up half do from Lamb, both also at this month’s Collaber88.

Fluffy Flowers


It was love at first sight when I saw this dress from Tres Blah and the current round of Collaber88. I don’t think I even bothered to demo it, I just bought! It comes in a couple other patterns as well as plain white and a plain black. I am pretty sure I will be going back to get the black one as well before the month is over.
I picked up these cute heels with bow detail just a few stalls down from Friday. I also bought them in a pale petal almost white color. They are just so cute and I see a lot of uses for them this Spring and Summer.
I also go my hair at C88 from Clawtooth. There are too styles from Clawtooth, this one with the side ponytail and one with the same bangs, but a side knot dealy thing. Unfortunately I only had money for one of them otherwise I would have gotten both. They are really cute and i think my two favorite styles to date from Clawtooth.

Dizzy Had A Little Lamb


Nothing says Spring more than a cute flower dress and a baby lamb if you ask me! I was feeling especially Spring-y this week in this cute skirt and off the shoulder top I got at C88 from Tee*fy. It worked really well with the Oxford heels The Secret Store was offering which is awesome because I LOVE the shoes and was dying to wear them. C88 is just about done for this round so you better get down there to see if there is anything you missed.

I have been really bad this month. I have yet another new skin. Damn that Skin Fair! *shakes fist*
This is Emma from Essences and I could not get it off my mind. At first I was not going to get it because I had gotten a few others, but I kept thinking about it and putting the demo on.
I have been so lost for a skin since Dutch Touch stopped making skins. I would still wear Dutch Touch (and proudly did until just a 3 months ago), but since becoming a Slink mesh hand and feet convert I only wear skins with appliers. I know I can manually match the tone, but it doesn’t look the same as it does with the actual skin applied to the mesh. I have tearfully set aside my Dutch Touch skins, still hoping one day Iki will come back even if just to make appliers, and started searching for a new skin.
It’s been really hard. I wore Dutch Touch for YEARS non stop, I came to feel I was not me if I was not in my Dutch Touch skin and so now nothing feels like me. Then I put on this new Essences Emma skin and I see elements to it that drew me to DT skins too. This is the most me I have felt since taking off my DT skin. Emma has a cute little button like nose and a really great shape to her mouth, she is just beautiful. This is my favorite skin to come from Essences yet!

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!

Yellow Fall


So many wonderful Fall things coming out I don’t think I will have time to wear them all! (Or the money to get them :/ )
This outfit was put together on a rather small budget. The hair (hat included), the bag and the top were all from September Collaber88.
My shoes are from Ingenue and were at this round of the Arcade for a steal! I didn’t have any particular color I wanted so I just played a bunch of times to get a bunch of colors. They are that cute you will want them in multiple colors.
My scarf from Milk Motion is also from a gatche, but at the Seasons Story event. I love this scarf to pieces! I want to collect all the colors. I played it a bunch of times and thankfully didn’t hit any doubles… yet. I am still missing a few I would like so I am sure to hit up the machine again. It just really fits nicely for a rigged scarf. I usually have fitting issues, but didn’t with this one.
Lastly my skin is also from a gatcha for only 75L from La Petite Morte at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. There are 4 tones in the skin each with 5 possible make-ups and one of them being a rare. I think this is one of my favorite skins from La Petite Morte! The Carnival opens October 1st so don’t for get to check them out!
