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.

August Gifts

TokiD‘s August gift is out! The new Mari shirt. Turquoise and polkadot and adorable the gift includes  6 sizes of tops to choose from. I would normally wear the xs but I wore the small because I didn’t want the prim from the shorts to poke through. I was really impressed by the fit of this top. Being a small chested avi I’ve had to make my boobies bigger for a few mesh tops but I didn’t have to change my shape at all for this shirt..and I couldn’t look down my shirt and see invisible boobs..just a nice, perfect fit.

A peek from behind. The silky back strap is a nice surprise when you turn around and always gets a couple of oohs and ahs. I also love the pretty ribbon in the back of the [e]likatira hair, Changes, that I’m wearing in this post.

The skin in the pics above is Filthy skin’s August group gift. (also some really cool lipgloss makeup tats..be sure and grab those too while you’re there!)  There is a group fee but I thought this was a really cute skin so I didn’t mind paying it. Plus I have been dying to try on some new skins. I’ve acquired a few demos that I’ve been looking forward to trying on..

The 80’s Heels are another find from HOC Industries @ The Vintage Fair. Above, is the picture of the HUD that you wear to change the shoes and socks colors. I’m excited about these shoes..I keep thinking of outfits that they would look so adorable with..and the combinations are endless!

the platinum hunt

Some awesome things going on right now…first and foremost The Platinum Hunt kicks off today.  This is the hunt that you have to pay 10 L$ for each gift, but let me tell you, the items are so high quality it is well worth it..i mean what is that…50cents? :p

Click here to visit the official hunt blog. There you can view a list of all the participating stores WITH links…thank you Miss Keira! You’ll see names such as Glam Affair, glow studio, LaGyo, BOOM, Royal Blue, elikatira…the list goes on and on…

The Indie Rose gift is one of my favorites (worn in this post). I love the cut of the dress ..it has a vintage look to it. You can’t help but feel feminine and sexy in it. 
I was tickled to death to receive the Lelutka group gift, Hadley..I was soo excited that she didn’t have green or purple eyeshadow too lol…nice soft neutral wearable tones. I just saw this skin for the first time the other day and made a mental note to try it on soon…it had such a unique look..and younger looking than most Lelutka skins imho.

It seems as if all the women in SL are running around barefoot all of a sudden..maybe it’s because Maitreya has released *the perfect prim feet!

Available  in pointy toes or flat feet (both styles shown in picture above).
