Introducing The Fall Babydoll Dress- The Secret Store & Nyu‘s very first piece of collaboration work. Created with a beautiful floral damask texture and an oversized, peter pan-type lace collar. Available in 10 rich, fall colors at either location.

I wanted some white lace tights so I went to G Field, and what great timing I had. Everything black and orange is half off until 10/31. I picked up a few pairs of shoes, the pair in this post being one, and a beautiful new hat that I probably should have worn in this shoot…I just couldn’t cover up the pretty little bow in Truth‘s new’ish hair, Marina. (bow is color-change, touch for menu)

G Field has a free gift this month for group members, and they’ve put last year’s Halloween gift out as well. Click here to see photos of their festive free gifts. This offer will also expire on 10/31.

My final touch for this look was the Caroline’s Jewelry Cameo Choker. This cameo is resizable and hangs from a black ribbon that is tied in the back in a bow. My favorite part…the cameo face can be changed from 10 different facings on touch.

all the pretty horses

I have a weakness for late-night shopping on marketplace sl…well, anytime of the day I guess you could say. Late at night I seem to be more generous to myself. :) My latest “binge” was at the (NO) marketplace store. I saw this dress, The Folds Dress, and fell in love with it. It’s very fun and whimsical..and it seems very classic to me..as if it will always be in style, at any point in time.

(NO) (nylon outfitters)  creator, Nylon Pinkney is so very talented. There is an array of unique products in her stores, not only clothes. Getting the link for this post just now, I couldn’t resist adding a couple more items to my cart. ~sighs~ I swear, I have zero self control.

and oh em gee I just came across the Nylon Outfitters official blog, here…take a peek and fall in love! I’m going shopping..again!

LaGyo’s Blackdrop Hat @ Collabor88. Available in 9 colors. Each color has ON/OFF veil option and resize menu.

I got to the end of this post and was about to hit the publish button and I was like, omg…there’s no close-up of the zoe pumps by [celoe]. It would be a sin not to mention and/or show a close-up of these gorgeous pumps. The Zoe Pumps are 100% mesh and unrigged so you can move them, in edit mode, to make adjustments if needed. Available in 6 colors. I wanted to fatpack them so badly I could have cried…but like Arnold says…”I’ll be bach”.

Beautiful Newness from The Secret Store! The Mini Mesh Skirts, available in plain and printed versions. I considered doing a post showing each skirt because the colors are gorgeous, and there are some amazing printed ones. Very unique! There is a free demo available at the in-world and marketplace stores.

If you’re as big of a Maylee Oh fan as I am, you may want to bookmark a couple of sites. The Secret Store blog, and The Secret Store on marketplace sl. Nothing like shopping from the pose stand in your bedroom. :)


If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been venturing out of my safe, little photo orb more lately. Lately as in, since I’m able to view shadows. Lol, I just imagined a follower reading this and shaking their head saying, “she’s not going to talk about them damn shadows again, is she??” No, I am not..well I guess I kind of just did, but I was leading up to something else. Location.
We all know that there are literally thousands of awesome places in sl to take pics, some well known, and some waiting to be discovered. I’m betting that most of us also know that exploring the grid, looking for different photo locales is an experience within itself. Anything is possible in this world! If you have the time, that is.
That’s something else that I’ve bitched about mentioned quite often. How I wish I had more time. So lately I’ve been collecting LM’s and doing some googling on places to take photographs in second life, or.. beautiful, unique places in second life..whatever key words i can think of at the time.

The showcase section, located in the destination guide (found in the search section of your viewer, or here) has a lot of neat places to take pictures. I’ve also got a special landmark folder that I call “cool places”…yes, I know, such a snazzy, original name. When I’m out shopping, or on a hunt, or whatever, and I see a place that I like, I landmark it and drag it into said folder.

I wanted to share a very helpful post I found in Through Salamander’s eyes,  by Moniq Salamander. I am keeping this page bookmarked for sure. There are all sorts of different tips and lists. There is a list of links called Locations and there are some really good ones, and some great sources to find more!

still chasing shadows

Have I ever mentioned how much I wish I had the time to blog more? I think I’ve mentioned it a time or two…hundred. Now I have a new obstacle..to take the pretty shadowy location pics, I have to be plugged directly into my modem..I just can’t seem to get a strong enough connection via my router. I can still do the white background without a problem. I’d say out of about twenty or so pics taken outside of the beautiful Milk Motion main store, only 2 turned out somewhat decent..meaning with no weird lines or flaws.(see photo below)

That wouldn’t be a huge problem for a lot of people, but in my house there are these 2 really short people who love to play on the computers and they go cuckoo when they can’t get on youtube or disney.com. I find it best to just keep the peace.

The scarf in this picture is one of the many amazing group gifts at [whatever]. There is a 300 L$ fee to join, but it’s more than worth all of the group gifts you receive. I tp’d over late last night and all of the gifts are still available. You can view a few in this recent post, but there are more not even pictured.

freebies & feebies :-)

House of Hucci‘s new Calvi Dress..the Rose Smoke-colored version in this post is their Free Group Gift. I’m not sure how long they’ll be available since we’re going into October as we speak..or rather, as I write. I remember receiving the gift in mid-September, so hopefully it will be available a while longer, or at least in group notices.

The textures on this mesh dress are gorgeous. The top being so silky and soft looking, while the skirt part is smooth and sleek. I paired it with some silk stockings from Sheer and one of [whatever]‘s group gifts, the High Heels.

~Click here to TP to House of Hucci~

A pet peeve of mine is when a blogger goes on about a nice free group gift such as the High Heels in this post, and fails to mention  that there is a fee to join…in this particular case, a 300 L$ fee. I saw the High Heels in a blog marked as “FREE! FREE! FREE!”  so I tp’d to [whatever]. My mouth fell open when I saw the table with all of the beautiful group gifts on it. I knew then, that there must be a group fee, and on that particular day, I was broke. But I still sat and admired the High Heels, the two pairs of free boots, (only one pair pictured in this post), and a very nicely made floral silk scarf top.

Not long after my trip there I received a visit from the Linden Fairy. I kept contemplating going back to [whatever] and paying the fee. When I tried on the House of Hucci gift, I knew I had to have the gift heels. I figured I’d pay more than that for a pair of shoes anyway, and the other gifts are really nice things that I’ll definitely wear… and hopefully, all of their future group gifts are as amazing as these!

ZENITH @ FAIR

I’ve noticed that long, oversized sweaters seem to really be trending this fall. Hence, one of Zenith’s items in the FAIR event,  the Off Shoulder Long Sweater.

I was really pleased with how well these sweaters move with my, or rather Poppy’s movements. This is the type of item that would be nearly impossible to wear in the long ago, prim era :) ..well except for taking pics or standing still.

It brings to mind a big prim sweater I bought a couple of years ago from one of sl’s top designers..it’s so beautiful but i was never able to wear it anywhere except for my pose stand. Once I stood and walked around it did all sorts of crazy things lol.

Of course there are endless ways you could wear this sweater..I think my favorite way though, would be all by itself, with Zenith’s second item at FAIR..Zenith’s Cute Socks.

You don’t have to decide which ones to buy because it’s only one pair of socks. They come with the hud pictured below. You can change the color of the socks, the ribbons, and the fuzzy balls. (heehee…i said fuzzy balls)

paper.doll @ FAIR

I’m sure most of you have heard about the newest Chic Management event, FAIR. FAIR will be a monthly themed event, this month’s theme being time. Each creation is about a certain time of the day. Read more about this unique event, and see a list of participating stores, on the CHIC Management website, here.

The Cotton Slip Set is paper.doll’s FAIR item this month. I love when an outfit is sweet and sexy at the same time. Not only that, but these make adorable tops. You can pair them with almost anything. My favorite way to wear it as a top would be to pair it with skinny jeans and some cute sandals, or flats.

I would like to make a couple of quick comments about the first picture in this post…well first of all, not sure how “quick” it will be. See? I’m already wasting time. First of all, I just now found out that Long Awkward Pose closed down for good while I was away. This makes me sad. In my opinion they are some of the best modeling poses on the grid. I’d like to wish Dove Swanson good luck in life and tell her what an honor it was blogging for her. I’m sure you’ll still see LAP on my credits now and then. A lot of times when I’m looking for a specific type of pose, that’s the folder I find it in…which leads me to the second thing I wanted to mention…

The poses in the first picture were meant to be stretching and yawning, just-woke-up types of poses. The more I look at it though, it looks like Poppy number one is singing loud and obnoxiously and Poppy number three is covering her ears. Poppy number two doesn’t seem to care.

Gotta love those sl facial emotes.
