The perfect jacket

If you talk to me regularly, I’m always looking for something to go over my clothing. But as we all know, layering clothing has grown difficult, and finding outerwear is a big issue that I have. If your shirt, skirt, or pants bottom isn’t sticking out from it, it’s your arm, wrist, or part of your hand.

It all started when I got this dress from Ricielli…

PurpleMoon and KittyCatS advent calendars 2015 - second life

Eve is helping me again by showing us three items – the je suis FelineS Christmas clutch in gold, Amacci mesh Stargazer eyes and Simon hair, and the WoW Skins for the advent calendar in tan. Now, the skin is bare faced, so you can add your own makeup to make you stand out a bit. Eve is wearing makeup from mock cosmetics and Glamorize – both having very affordable makeup.

Days 8 and 9 - Snowflake Sweater and Venice jewelry in white

Eve is also wearing Days 8 and 9 from the PurpleMoon advent calendar. My previous post has been updated to reflect the recent additions.

What are some other advent calendars that you would like to see featured? I know there are many out there, but which ones do you feel need more shine because of the AWESOME items that they have? Let me know in comments ^^

Black Fashion Fair

Hey guys! Just in case you forgot, the Black Fashion Fair ends on May 1st. So if you haven’t gotten all of the things from there, get it soon! For instance, this little number from Blacklace called Promiscuous ^^

I just have the Slink feet appliers on, and no mesh body since I don’t have Slink nor Wowmeh. The bra part is see through – I just blurred it a bit to make it more PG friendly 🙂

Sad November

“Nothing lasts forever… Not even sad November rain”
From November 1st – 22nd

Hey guys! The other day I went to the Sad November event and looked around. I remember reading on Facebook that someone was experiencing lag due to the rain. I did find the event to lag a bit at the landing point, but then again 15 people were standing nearby. It got better when I moved away from the group. I think the slight lag comes from trying to render all of the stores and the landscaping objects more so than the actual rain. But it is a valid concern, because I have been to events that used atmosphere and the particles lagged the heck out of my computer. For instance, at the Xiasumi School Festival, I experienced no lag until I got to I think the shrine area, and someone had left on steam from one of the items out on display. I couldn’t walk at all until I turned it off.


Umbrella: DRD – Rainy Umbrella  (Sad November event)
Hair: *Milk* Hair~Winx (80L sale @ Soonsiki!)
Skin: -Glam Affair – Coral – Jamaica – Lotus
Makeup: [mock] Innocente Lipcolor- My Pink [lip 1]

Sweater: ghee – Fog Roundneck Sweater
Leggings:ghee – Fog Ribbed Knit Leggings
Boots: ::HH:: Hucci Aste Boots (from 21 Shoe event)
Necklace Maxi Gossamer – Gold Peace Pendant

I picked up this cool umbrella from DRD for only 60 L – and it’s color changeable via a HUD. I also played the LUXE gacha and won a few rings, including 1 rare:

If anyone has any extra rings, feel free to send them my way – especially if they are gold! ^^

Inspiration in bed

smoky_00512Melany – Blacklace Lingerie

I don’t know about you, but I think of a lot of ideas while I’m in bed. There is something about the realm between the consciousness and unconsciousness which makes it easier to formulate ideas or solve problems. Even when I’m studying for an exam, I study, then take a nap so the information can still process in my head while the physical part of my body is resting. When I have an issue that needs to be resolved, I go to sleep, and when I wake up, I either have the solution or I have ideas on how to get there.

But you know what I don’t like? Sometimes I feel that an idea is just out of my reach, and then I try to remember what it was, and then I cannot. 😦 Some people say to keep a pen and some paper near your bed so when you first wake up you can write down what you remember. I have done that before, when I used to dream a lot.

What do you like to think about when you are in bed?

color-block_004Ricielli sim, near the water

Hey guys -welcome back! I think I am getting the hang of blogging a bit more frequently.  Today I wanted to do something different and experiment with color blocking. What is color blocking, you ask?

We all remember the color wheel, right? We have our primary colors – red, yellow, and blue. Next comes the secondary colors – orange (mix of red and yellow), green (mix of yellow and blue), and purple (mix of blue and red). So image that these colors are on a wheel, with the secondary colors between the 2 primaries that make them up. So if we take yellow and purple, they are complementary to each other, and would make a high contrast look.

color-block_010

Purple and yellow right? Surprisingly, I didn’t have too many purple items that would be good for the look that I wanted to achieve. And I hardly have any yellow items in my inventory…yikes! I did like how the pink trench coat from Ricielli looked, so I decided to start from there. I took one of my favorite pairs of jeans (from Zaara) and tinted it purple, and added a splash of yellow color by using an old dress from Paradisis as my top under my coat. To add more yellow, I used yellow accessories that I think worked out nicely. Next time I will make sure to use more of the complementary color in my outfit…I think this would had totally rocked if I had like a long yellow sleeveless shirt with maybe a cropped jacket in a third color.

Until next time, guys!

Just Me

Hey guys…I have been feeling pretty bleh lately. The cold weather in real life  has really affected my mood…even made me want to dress in mufti-layered clothing and lounge around Second Life.

feel_001

My shades look kinda funky in that photo…didn’t notice it until much later. Ah well 😛 I decided to do a bit of shopping around to see what’s new and exciting.

Elikatira is having a massive hair sale now – all hairs will be discontinued after the sale ends on the 23rd. So of course I had to get some new hair, as well as more colors for some of the ones that I already had before. Another store that is having a sale is Kyoot – sadly, Kyoot will be closing its doors very soon (I heard the sale will end at the beginning of February), so run on down! Khitt and I were talking about how long the store has been around – I have things from 2010, and I think she has even older stuff. Okay – all of the closing has me down again..let’s talk about newer stuff.

Ikon has a new VIP group gift for the month of February. Even though I tend to wear mine from Exodi, I am always looking to find my next new favorite pair of eyes. Also, Al Vulo has a new skin out at TDR Fusion. I wanted to try the Honey tone, but they didn’t have demos there or even at their main store (yes, I went to look haha). So I got my usual sunkissed tone.

Until next time guys…which will probably be soon! ^^

12.12.12

You know I had to do something for this special day, right? When will we have another day like this? I am still behind on my posts…I have been taking photos and not sharing them with you all 😦 But hopefully in about a week or so I will have more time to do it ^^

I have wanted to start doing some Look Of the Day posts, so I figured today would be a good day to start!

lotd_002

At first I wanted something that I could throw over my Mandy lingerie outfit ( see previous post) so I could pick up some items, so I found one of the trench coats that I had picked up from Ricielli’s a couple of months back. Then I thought, “Hmm…I wonder if I have turtleneck sweater somewhere?”.

Sure enough, I found an old turtleneck sweater dress from E! Eclectic Apparel . For accessories, I opened up my N-Core shoes that I got from the last sale (yup, fresh out of the box…knew green shoes would come in handy), and dug out the purse that I got from this round’s Arcade. Last, but not least, I chose to wear the hair that I just got from Collabor88 – D!va’s messy yet fun-to-wear hair.

Until next time guys!

Warm up to Novemeber

Wow…it’s already several days into November! I honestly don’t know where the days went, but a lot of things have been happening with me lately – both in SL and RL.

Today I have some more sexy lingerie from Carrie’s Lingerie – Fall Coordinates have arrived in the mainstore, and it’s very hard to decide which ones to mix and match to get your perfect fit. Well…not really that hard – just that you want to buy all of the things 🙂 Below I am wearing the Fall Plaid lingerie, with some extras thrown in there*winks*

Carrie was very generous with this release – you buy one set and you are able to coordinate several looks. Since I came up with several looks, I will try to describe what I am wearing in each photo.

1 – This is the Fall Plaid lace bra and thong, along with matching brown stockings.
2 – Carrie also made matching makeup to go along with the lingerie (I love makeup!) so I am wearing the Fall leaf full makeup in Brick.
3 – This is the tan garter and stockings combination from the Fall Plaid set.
4 – The Brick skirt is sold separately, but I wanted to wear it to show you how diverse this new collection is…you truly can mix and match these items, ladies!
5 – Last, but not least, are the brown garter/stockings combination (my personal favorite of the two colors).

There are more looks – I left out the boy shorts, pasties, and a shelf bra (that shows partial nipple…hehe). I could take photos of every possible look…or you can get some and see for yourself ^^

Happy shopping!
