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.

BOOM Ellio Bikinis

I so appreciate all of the welcome back wishes that you all have sent. The blogging community in sl has never ceased to amaze me at how sweet and helpful everyone is. I’d like to give a very special thanks to Aisling MacMoragh who helped me get back on my flickr, yay! and also for helping me with some of the new features that weren’t available before.

I’ve finally gotten a few opportunities to play with my shadow features..I went to the artilleri sim and played around with various windlight settings. I still have a lot to learn and maybe in a few months or a year these pics will make me cringe, but for now I am happy with how they turned out šŸ™‚

Truth‘s Mercedes Hair is one of my new favs..I loved the blonde demo so much that I picked up a pack in blonde too..every color comes with dark root options.

********************************************************************

Last night I popped over to the Magi Take Store to browse their freebie wall. I found a few cute pieces including the green argyle socks in the pic below. Join the group then go upstairs to the back of the furniture dept. to find the freebies.

The loafers in the pic below are from BeetleBones and I bought them at the Pookie Flea Market this past summer. I get the most compliments on these old clunkers and unfortunately, the last time I checked, I didn’t see them in the store. šŸ˜¦

I forgot to mention that the new BOOM shorts come with 3 different cuff styles, modeled in each of these pics. The shorts I’m wearing in the pic below are my favorite cuff style BUT looking at the pic I see I needed to modify them differently.

Also a couple of freebies in the pic below to mention. The nerd glasses are a free gift from BerriesĀ Inc.Ā (in the very front of the store)..they are so cute..I love the little ribbon tied on the side. The purple argyle sweater is another find from the Magi Take.

The backpack was a special promotion from Mayonaise this past summer. I’m not sure if they are available in the store or not anymore. My guess would be “not”, but only because I’m a huge pessimist :p

Caitlyn

It was love at first sight for me when I saw Caitlyn (no, random blog surfers this is not a lesbian love story :p) Caitlyn is one of the newest skins created by Daniel Knave of Bitzu. When I came across her flickr pics she caught my eye.. I thought she was so pretty I actually contacted Daniel and asked if I could blog her.

The skirt, shoes, and handbag for my LOTD are from a “new to me” store called TokiD…they have some reallllllyyy cute things..so nicely made..not a lot of inventory yet but believe me the quality more than makes up for the the quantity.

Ok, since this post is for a skin I thought I’d take this opportunity to strip down to my underwear…thank goodness I happened to be wearing Insolence!
I found her just as lovely naked…beautiful breasts, a smooth creamy complexion..oh and if you zoom in you can see the light sprinkle of freckles across her nose….adorable!

Each skin comes with a cleavage option as well..both options are pictured below…
