Vintage Mania!

Vintage Fair 2012 is here! This is a big event by Chic Management with 3 sims of vintage fashion: Classic, Retro, and Chic sims. The Vintage Fair opened to the public on August 4th, and will end on August 29th. So there is plenty of time to shop  at the 250+ stores – wow, that is a lot of stores!

So many people did vintage dresses that I decided to take a different approach to things – beach casual. I live on the beach, so that shouldn’t be too hard, right? 🙂

BOOM had a flash sale over the weekend, so I was able to grab a few things, including the shoes and the polo shirt. I had been looking for a nice ponytail for a while, so I was glad I found a cute one at Alice Project, which is currently at the Vintage Fair. I also got the coldlogic pants and the Izzie shades from the fair as well.

More goodies to follow!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Tea Green

Week Thirteen: Tea Green

March 25 – March 31

Welcome to Week 13 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge! Yes, I am happy to be caught up with the weeks again ^^ I thought I had a color all picked out, but when I tried on the dress, it was too dark. So, had to switch things up a bit…

I admit, this was a tricky color to find without buying something that others blogged already – for instance I believe Jane has mesh pants in this week’s color. I remembered that I had just gotten some pumps from Hucci that were only 80L (weekend sale I think), so then the rest of the outfit came along pretty quickly.

See you next time!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Folly

Week Seven: Folly

February 12 – February 18

 

Hellloooooooo Week 7! This was a hard color for me until I took a good hard look in my inventory. I had bought an outfit from BOOM that had the color Lipstick as one of their many shades, so I knew I had to go someplace fun!

I went to Radiant Amusement Park because I hadn’t been to one in a while. We used to go to Gutti but it closed unfortunately. This park was relatively small, but I still had a great time.

The first ride I went on was called the Airstrip. That ride took me up, down, and flipped me round and round.  That was scary – I swore the bar almost came loose mid ride!

The trick to going to amusement parks is to go on the biggest/scariest ride first. Then everything else seems like a breeze. Like for this ride – I am pretty high up in the air – no fear 🙂

Skydiving is fun – for this one, I sat on a platform that launched me up in the air. Then when it started to descend, I stood up and let my chute take over once it reached a certain altitude.

While I was wandering around, I met a guy named Mark who asked did I want to go on some rides with him ^^ So I got to spend the rest of my day at the amusement park with him. We later went to the race track where he helped me practice my driving.

Well, time for me to practice! See you soon guys!

12 Days of Lingerie – Day 2- Lybra

Welcome to day 2 of the 12 Days of Lingerie challenge! Today I wanted to wear something with a bit more edge – Lybra from Blacklace should do just great I think ^^

Who says girls in leather and lace can’t be sexy?  With a diamond buckle on the corset and hot stockings to match, this piece will dominate the bedroom in no time.

I love this  knuckle ring from Chop Zuey – looks fab yet ready to knock someone out all at the same time! Hmm..I think I see some people coming this way…

DO YOU WANT SOME OF THIS????!??!

Ahhh….much better.

Okay, I think standing in a dark alley snapping pics is giving me a lot of unwanted attention – I’ll catch you guys later 😉

12 Days of Lingerie – Day 1- Amor

Hello! I just heard that Gogo had a new blog challenge – wear underwear, lingerie, or just any sexy undergarments for 12 days.  Since I am always searching for motivation to keep me blogging, this was made for me. I LOVE to dress sexy, and now I have an excuse to take it all off…hehe.

Hmm…what to wear, what to wear? Looking in my closet, the first thing that jumps at me is the sexy red Amor outfit that I got recently from Blacklace. What I like about this lingerie is that you have the option to get a dress to go along with it. You can look sexy on a night out, and then still keep it going when the clothes come off.

My favorite part about this lingerie is probably the embroidered stocking tops. The details is something that I haven’t seen much in Second Life, so it really makes the outfit stand out.

See you tomorrow with the second installment of 12 Days of Lingerie!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Patina

Week Five: Patina
January 29 – February 4

Welcome to Week 5 of the 52 Weeks of Color challenge! Are you ready to see my interpretation of Patina? Me too! ^^ But what the heck is patina, anyway?

Have you ever seen a greenish penny? Or the Statute of Liberty, perhaps?  The green is actually the physical evidence of a metal oxidizing when it has been exposed for a long period of time to the environment. I learned at Wikipedia that this is a good thing because it prevents the metal from further corroding, preserving the metal.

Anyways…

Patina was harder than what I thought it would be. When I was shopping, I would many times see a blue and a green color, and I wished I could just mesh the 2 together and get patina – lol. But finally I settled on this Pietra bodysuit from R.icielli. The jeweled accents on the shoulder area really make this bodysuit special.

This week at The Dressing Room, Glam Affair has a skin called Linn in a light tone – Primavera. When I tried it on, I was very pleased at how it looked, despite the fact I don’t wear light skins for my everyday wear. So if you like how it looks too – head down there! Nothing at TDR costs more than 70L, so you will get tons of quality at a low price.

RezIpsa Loc has these Patina heart stockings on sale, so I decided to get them to wear with my bodysuit. I chose Akasha to take this set of photos because it felt secluded and a bit of mystery to it. The area with the pillars were great to take photos because depending on what angle I shot from, the sky had a warm glow or bright surroundings.

Hmm…I know people like to list names of places that they visited, and poses that they use. It’s hard for me to name poses because I flip through them quickly, and then to look at which pose I have in particular sort of disrupts my flow. As for not listing the places I go to take pictures, I’m just lazy ^^ But let’s see…for the first photo I used a Glitterati Beauty head shot pose. When I went to Akasha, I believe my poses were all from Olive Juice (why are they closing ;( ).

Thanks for stopping by, and see you next time!

BOOM! Guess who stepped in the room?

BOOM has had a great sale for Black Friday and this weekend – 60% off items on Friday, 40% off on Saturday, and 25% off today. I went early Saturday, hoping that they didn’t change their prices yet. They had indeed, but I still managed to snag a few items ^^

Let me just finish drinking my wine first…

This is one of my favorite places at home – siting out on the patio, relaxing with a glass of wine. Ahh….


On second thought, I guess I can talk about what I have on first while drinking, right? This is BOOM’s Boyfriend Tee in lipstick. I love these because they are good when you need to go somewhere in a hurry, but can’t be bothered with adjusting prims and the like.  I have a brown one from Sassy, and a purple one from Shush.

Also, Pink Fuel has a awesome Black Friday Sale this weekend on their Elly skin – you get two makeups for only 450L, and they have a ton (and I mean a ton) of lipsticks that go with it. I’m currently wearing  Glam Lipstick/Teeth – (Vamp).

(Note: I was supposed to make this post wearing the new skin, but it looks like I have my regular skin from Al Vulo on…oops.)

The hair that I have on is from Truth – Clara in chocolate. It comes with its own hair base, so you know I had to switch to a viewer that supports multiple tattoo layers ^^ I am starting to use Firestorm more because I got used to the layout finally.


This outfit is from BOOM as well – Park Life Hoodie and sweatpants, both in Teal. You know, if I didn’t understand how one color can look totally different depending on what material (well texture) you use, I would be greatly disappointed in that how hard it was to find matching colors. I am not sure whether they were supposed to go together or not, but hey, they were next to each other when I bought them 🙂 And it looks great – I love wearing sweatpants and hoodies when I’m in a dress down kinda mood.

I was looking for more casual tanks I could use for layers or something to go underneath my jackets, and it needed to be a neutral color, too. So this Everyday Tank in Sand works perfectly.

This outfit was quite popular in the summer – A Day on the Yacht. To complete the look, I have the Ahoy Sailor Cap, Deck Shoes (not shown) and Lynx Skinny Belt.

This is what the Pink Fuel Elly skin looks like for those who really wanted to see it. Doesn’t it look hot? And you can kinda see why I thought I had it on first…hehe.

CHIC Managament’s 1st Birthday

I received a notecard about the Chic Management 1 year birthday celebration, so I decided to check it out. There were so many nice items in one small space, it was hard to pick what to get without buying half the place. Haha – oh you would like that, wouldn’t ya? 😉

The first thing that stood out to me were the Feel Free Shorts from *BOOM*. The color, the cut, the cuteness – all comes together nicely. I wanted to get something to match the shorts, so this Anya top from Absolution did the trick nicely. They have several colors available, so if blue isn’t your color, you can always pick something else.
