Cary final

This is my second post in a row without wearing my Slink Mesh Physique, and I am ready to put it back on. There are some system clothes that I’ve missed wearing, some of my favorite pieces to layer with. Particularly COCO‘s Bow Shirt.  I’ve seen some beautiful mesh bow shirts but I run into the same problem while trying to layer over them..they come through the top layer of clothing. So for now  there will be occasional posts where I’m not wearing my Slink Physique.

If you’re a purse fanatic like myself you must check out [DDL]. They have a nice selection of purses, satchels, clutches etc. They carry other accessories as well plus some really cute ready to wear items. Join their group, for free I might add, and pick up the beautiful jewelry gifts on the main counter. They have an in-world store and one on the marketplace as well (here). I found that the in-world  store carried a wider selection of their products and more color choices for certain items also. Click here to visit the [DDL] Facebook page for a quick look at   some of Melina Anatine’s beautiful, well-made creations.

Before forking out big bucks on eyeglasses, check the marketplace! I found a plethora of them for 1-5 $L and a handful of really cute freebies as well. I understand sometimes you fall in love with an amazing Gos pair and you don’t have a choice but to spend the L$. But if it’s just a simple, cute pair of glasses you’re searching for, try the T.C. Kawaii Glasses; only 1L$ at the Erovi Marketplace Store, here.

the girl’s got game

gamer girl fin 1

It’s only been a week or so, but oh how I’ve missed my little blog. I wish I could clone myself and have my clone do my menial rl tasks and I could sit and blog my little heart out. But alas, that’s not going to happen so I must enjoy the time I do get to blog and make it worth while.

The Dirty Princess Gladiator Heels definitely make it worth while in my opinion. The moment I saw these I had to have them. I’ve wanted some black gladiator heels for a while but I was having a hard time finding a very tall pair that didn’t have that gold lion on the front. At first I thought they were discontinued because I couldn’t find them with the other DP items on marketplace. As it turned out, my settings somehow weren’t on adult and for some reason they are an “adult item” on marketplace sl…I guess because they’re so hot. 🙂 But it worked out because I tp’d to the in-world store and was able to look at their beautiful creations in person pixel.

I’m also trying a new skin in this post. I’ve had my eye on Izzie’s Neva for a while now. I’ve probably demo’ed it at least 3 times and I finally decided to get it. I love the full brows, the pouty lips and the cute little nose. Izzie’s is fast becoming one of my favorite places to shop. Her jewelry is beautiful and she’s making more and more applier clothes, socks, gloves, etc.

The clothes are all by Coco Designs; only 2 purchases though. The shirt comes with the scarf which can be worn separately and an additional tee in a different color. The black tee’s “additional color” is a white tee.

The jewelry is all by Epoque. I’ve bought a lot of their items on marketplace but I tp’d to the store this time and went on a late-night shopping frenzy in there. They have amazing jewelry, and I’m a fool for a nice set of dust knuckles.

Last but not least, the Gamer Bag by Le Primitif is from The Arcade Gacha! It was a gift from one Miss Neva Seljan, blogger extraordinaire, and she gave it to me right before I did the photoshoot for this outfit. It happened to match perfectly. I think it makes the whole outfit..with the shoes of course. It’s great to have a friend that is a Gacha addict because then you get their doubles, hee hee. Thank you so much sweet Neva!

after-hours

after hours final with jacket

This post has been a long time in the making because real life seems to be keeping me pretty busy. Doesn’t rl know I have a second life to live?? Sheesh!

Poppy is looking business chic with her briefcase and mon tissu glasses. The top and belt are part of GizzA’s new creation, the Nicola Gown. It’s originally a formal gown, as seen here, but you can also wear the pieces separately to create your own unique look.

after hours final taking her hair down

 

Let down your hair, lose the jacket, lose the specs (or not) and this look easily transforms into an after-hours look. Great for role-play 🙂 Or if you want to “sex it up” a bit more you can always go a length or two shorter on your skirt (shown below wearing the mini length). The Maitreya Mesh Pencil skirts come in a variety of lengths and colors to fit anybody’s style.

If you’re looking for well-made applier clothing and accessories you must go to Izzie’s! There you will find several different gloves, stockings, lingerie, manis’ and pedis’…the list goes on and on and continues to grow. If you’re not in-world, Izzie’s creations (along with some killer dollarbies) can also be found on her marketplace store, here!

Maitreya Top final

There are so many awesome fashion events happening right now in sl..as always, lol. I’m not complaining, although it is quite addictive. I’m always afraid I’m going to miss out on some “once-in-a-second-lifetime” deal…and I won’t even get started discussing the Gacha machines!

Maitreya top Mutresse Clutch and Lion Cuff final

above: One of Lethal Couture’s kustom9 creations for August; The Lion Head Cuff in black and gold (other color options and items from this creator available at event).
The Mutresse Muci Clutch is a must have for your sl wardrobe. It comes with an attachable hud (shown below) that gives you 13 different color choices for the leather, and 4 different metal choices for the clasp, chain and studs. Also, 2 versions of clutch included in folder; 1 regular and 1 for Slink casual hands.

I’m still in my Slink Physique..still trying to get used to it. I don’t feel “comfortable in my own skin” yet…literally, lol. It also makes me sad to think of all the things in my inventory that I can’t wear with it. I see a lot of things happening quickly..as I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m seeing clothing appliers all over marketplace. A lot of the the applier items that I’ve seen remind me of the outfits that we first tried to make on the old sl clothing sliders. I’ve seen a few cute things too, and some beautiful lingerie.
Will our pre-mesh items become obsolete? Does anyone wear their old outfits and/or accessories anymore? And if they do, will they be arrested by the MESH police?

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.

Click here for taxicab to (NO)’s in-world store.

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!

Poppy Returns from Outer Space

or as we sometimes call it, real life.

Pictured above: Maylee Oh’s new Babydoll Dresses from The Secret Store. Available in 7 different prints/textures for any mood or look.

I couldn’t believe when I looked at my blog a week or so ago and realized that I’ve been away nearly 1 year! My how time flies..and I’ve missed blogging but it seemed every time I logged into sl my graphics were going from bad to worse. I tried to take some pics and it wouldn’t even let me go to the ultra setting..i was heartbroken.

I tried to upgrade my Mac. It was a 10.5.8 and to be able to upgrade, i needed to first upgrade to a disc that apple no longer sells. I found some independent sellers on amazon with 50/50 reviews..a few of the bad reviews stating that they had lost total use of their computer when trying the 59 dollar upgrade and of course, this made me very apprehensive.

Like I have my entire life when I have a problem I called my Dad and asked if he could help me investigate and find a way to do it. The next day my amazing Dad brings me over a new iMac. I was so overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe it. He said it was my birthday gift and he knows because of my special situation at home that my computing time is my biggest “outlet”…

So now…finally…I have shadows! I was so excited I cried, lol. I know that’s so corny but…whateva.

I was going through my inventory and I have nearly a years worth of things that generous designers have sent me to blog for them..plus since it’s turned into a mesh world while I’ve been away you can imagine the shopping that needs to be done! But I’m really going to make an effort not to let my blog make me feel overwhelmed and deadliney…I want it to be enjoyable for me and for you! Nevertheless, I do have some catching up to do..going to model some of the review copies and new things and freebies while I play with the lighting and see what I can do..be patient with me..while I’ve been gone I’ve renewbed…it really happens!

One more thing I’d like to add..well there are many things I’d like to add but I’m trying not to make this any lengthier than it already is..If you’ve contacted me and  I haven’t responded please forgive me..i literally fell off the face of sl for a while so I’m sure many messages and other things were overlooked and/or lost. I’ll be checking daily now so if you’d like to get in touch with me please drop me a notecard in world or leave me a message here.

I’m in a pickle with my flickr..I can’t remember my screen name, password, the email acct. I used to open it..on my old computer it just stayed logged on all the time..not now of course so I cannot get into my flickr 😦 Not sure if I should make a new one or keep on with the pain in the ass process of trying to make some sort of “breakthrough” with it.

Okay, I’ll leave you on that note lol…Thank you for all of your support and encouraging messages while I was away..it really means a lot. ♥
