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!

Sparrow in Flowers

I finally made it to Project Donate for Unicef… there were way too many events going on in SL this month, all at the same time and demanding money *grumbles* I only ended up finding two things that I really liked and had to have at Project Donate and that is my top from Addict and the tights from Fume. There was no where near as many people at Project Donate so it’s quite easy to get around also there is not an elaborate base build to add lag.
When I was looking for a hair for this outfit I found one more hair from Hair Fair that I’d bought and totally forgot about… Sorry I lied in my last post as that was not the last of my Hair Fair finds, but this is.. I swear! The hair is Lopsided Lilly from Fashionably dead and anything with uneven pigtails gets my vote so I had to buy it.

Steampunk II

I am back today with another Steampunk outfit. Although I am very sorry to say the corset and skirt are no longer available. They are from Twosome and were part of the Designers United 3 project, but they are so beautifully made I love wearing them. I have new boots that I am totally in love with and they are the reason i had to put together another Victorian/ Steampunk outfit. They are the Short Lace-up boots from G-field that are currently out at the shoe fair and they are yummy. I would die for some boots like this in real life. Very well textured and detailed. They come in tons of colors (*cough* I couldn’t resist… I got the fat pack) and also have options for alpha skin coverings of the foot if you are using viewer 2 or another compatible viewer.
Also new is my skin… yeah I have been a little bad lately. It’s the new JeJune skin from Tres Blah out now. If you like the more hand drawn skins than this is the skin for you… even if not this is a beautiful skin and I think everyone should check it out, because i have yet to see it not look good on any one. With each skin you get a few eyebrow options in a couple colors. There is also a freckle layer that uses the viewer 2 tattoo layer.
For accessories I have on a pair of bifocals I bought ages ago and sadly I cannot find the store any more and it’s no longer listed on the creator’s profile. My darling locket is from Yummy… it’s not necessarily Victorian, but I like it and thought it fit well enough.
