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!

Not All Mesh Is Created Equal

Not all mesh is created equal is something to remember when shopping for mesh items. Recently I was a little disappointed when buying a mesh top. I did try the demo, but for some reason I was thinking there might be other sizes when I bought the full. Nope. For male there is only one size and for females there is only small and large. I could have really used a medium.. doh!

I still think the top is really cute and have been wearing it, but the large is way to big and makes me look like I am preggers and floats off my shoulders. The small one is a bit too small and I had to really take a lot of meat off my legs. I didn’t think I had fat legs, but this top has given me a bit of a complex. It doesn’t follow with the standard sizing set up by some of the other stores doing mesh so this top is not going to work for every one. Despite adjusting my legs and arms the mesh still cuts through the body in some poses and even some standard standing AO poses. Make sure you really try out the demo before buying.

In other news I am totally in love with the new hair from Lamb! So cute with the bangs twisted and pinned to the side.
I have also been unable to take off the heart sunglasses from Tres Blah out at Colber88 this month. I bought ever color and have worked them into pretty much all outfits I have been wearing lately.

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!

Electric Lime

Week 17 of 52 Weeks Of Color Challenge is electric lime.

Now this is a color i can get into. Spare me the taupes and browns… bring on the electric colors! It took me a while to figure out exactly what I wanted to wear.. I have so much in this type of color it’s crazy. The most awesome part is other than the glasses (which I just picked up from Reek for 50L Friday) I already had everything I am wearing, so I saved money this week.
Oh wait, I forgot I finally gave in and bought The Body Co. skin. I went and checked it out when it first came out and loved it, but decided to wait a bit to buy it. It’s a very different look to other skins out there right now. I am slightly annoyed that all make up options are only on tattoo layers. My one and only tattoo layer is used for my freckles which this skin doesn’t have an option for like so many other cheaper skins out there do give. They do give different brow color options, but these days most skins do, well most I wear. I still like it, and love how different it looks and look forward to see other faces that will come from The Body Co.

Back to Basics

I have noticed in the last few months that I am not as excited as I once was about my clothes in SL. I am sure this has NOTHING to do with the fact that I shop too much and have too many of them. I think it’s because I have gotten too far away from the core fashion sense of Dizzy. I used to put outfits together and love them so much I wouldn’t taken them off for weeks and weeks! Now I find it hard to put something together that I don’t take off an hour later.
So I am going to try and get back to my own Dizzy sense of fashion… back to Dizzy basics, which if you have ever known me in my 4 and a half years on the grid you will know that basics for me often involve tutus and pink hair.
I still like my more normal clothes and will still wear those and blog about those outfits, but I am going to make a conscious effort to find my own look again.

Still Winter

Bleh.. it’s still Winter time, which for me means cold and rain.. I don’t even get any of that pretty snow stuff to make the cold worth while. Helping to make it through this cold and gray time of year is all the great shopping to be done in SL!
New out from BOOM is this totally cute knit mini dress. Great to wear on its own and start dreaming to Spring or add it to some layers for an adorable winter wear look. I just love the little sculpted pockets in front! Also new from BOOM are the Folded Wool Socks which match wonderfully with the mini dresses.

I am also using this post to apologize to all the pose makers whose poses I use in my blog… I have been forgetting to credit you guys and I am so sorry! So also starting with this post I will now be adding credits for the poses used in each post.

Week 11 of 52 Weeks Of Color Challenge is indigo.

My indigo is a little lighter than originally planed. I didn’t want the tones to be too close to my blue outfit and the next blue hue I had was navy, and I didn’t want to use too many of those just in case there is a week of navy.
