Why “lady?”

Well, it’s a short word that looks kinda rad behind a woman in a short skirt.

I gave myself a budget for the three big events going on right now: Hair Fair (sims 1, 2, 3, and 4), Designers United 4, and Project Donate with Unicef. I shopped until I dropped, and came out with some amazing items! I’ll be working them into my outfits for a long time to come, I expect. Here’s a starter:

love me, love me

I feel so springy in this outfit. It’s a shame that it’s almost autumn, eh?

Cubana

I haven’t taken blog photos at Emvee Cuba since July 2008 when baked textures in SL were a rare sight, and everyone and their second cousin was taking their photos in the same dim hallways on this gorgeous sim. It’s endured the fast-moving and ever-advancing pace of SL for two years, but it won’t last much longer. Don’t miss your chance to photograph some memories within its courtyards and ballrooms before it’s closed for good!

I realize I’m wearing a few unavailable items, but when you see something in your inventory that you love, what should keep you from wearing it? I hope it motivates you to support special events and follow your favorite shops through groups!

I absolutely adore inclement weather in Second Life. Storms charm me right out of my socks. But my very favorite thing in SL might be sunshine. My choice Windlight setting is brilliant and crisp; the sims that charm me the most have lush landscapes with sun rays cutting through the leaves and glowing in the grass; and my dream home has huge windows with plenty of light streaming in through the glass.

Take this luscious skybox by Orange Creations. It was the perfect background for my photographs because of its dazzling colors, detailed rendering, and especially the natural light coming in through the windows.

I wanted to find a fun outfit to wear with these brand new (and freakin awesome!) glasses by Gos. Gospel Voom continually brings out the highest quality sculpts, scripting, and baked textures in his work. I’ve tinted mine chrome and left the lenses clear, but there are multiple built-in options including a ‘wear on head’ position which I’ve come to hope for in all good sunglasses. You can even have your initials appear on the temple to “brand them” as your own. I only wish more colors came standard, but you can buy extra tinting options for a reasonable fee at the store.

Oh yeah, my outfit! Holy shit I love Emery. I had a little shopping spree (one of many I’ve had there!) and picked up this fantastic skirt and the leotard top that makes me feel like a member of an ’80s gymnastics team. Maybe I should be doing the splits?

A few of the softer things

1 Mar

I’m not terribly “quaint” in my everyday wear in-world; I usually stick to admiring the fashion sense of ladies who easily fit their too-petite avatars into layer-upon-layer of adorable clothing and accessories. Today, however, I’d like to feature some softer things I’ve purchased and re-discovered in my inventory.

MIU provided the base pieces for each of these outfits. The one piece jumper and airy dress are a good sampling of the sweet offerings at this shop. Bows and ruffles always make me feel girly and innocent (the latter of which I am certainly not 😉 ).

I matched these cute pieces with some of my favorite goodies from Pig and jewelry from Atelier AM. One totally unexpected find was Sylvia, the lone hair style over at HAMIs. The curling tendrils are romantic and sweet; I hope there will be more styles to come!

The boho chic Milk Motion sandals and Breeze hair from Lamb are finally being featured on this blog after sitting under-appreciated in my inventory. Oh, P.S., one of my favorite fashion trends right now is feathers. Have I said that already? Well, you’ll keep hearing it. Pluck those birds; I want more feathers! PETA beware.
