ruffled fin 1

My “favorite sl outfits ever” list is getting too long. I may have to start calling it a “category”. Here’s another outfit that made the cut. Believe it or not these pieces are from different creators. They could almost be a set, with their similar rich textures and beautiful ruffles.

Ok, I have to talk about the amazing Dupla Ruffled Leggings from Mutresse. These are NOT your average, everyday leggings and once you try them you will be blown away by the countless looks you are able to come up with.

Mutresse Dupla Leggings. 1 pair of pants, 1000 different looks.
mutresse leggings_poster_700x525

These rigged mesh leggings come with 3 wearable parts; the leggings, the waistband and the ruffles. They also come with a hud that has 24 different  fabric options for each piece, plus a section to modify the sheer parts of the leggings. Read the notecard inside the Leggings folder for easy instructions on modifying the sheer parts. The photo above (snagged from Mutresse’s marketplace store) shows 3 different ways to wear the leggings, plus sample swatches of the 24 different fabric options the hud gives you for each individual piece!

The V.e. Ruffled Bolero is available in a variety of color combinations, and can be purchased on Valentina E.’s marketplace store, or at the main store in-world. Click here to visit Valentina E. on the marketplace. If you’d like to see the available colors and the matching Gaucho, sold separately, the marketplace link has clear pictures that you can zoom in on. I’m thinking I need to pick up a couple more of these boleros. There are so many different ways you can wear it,  it took me forever to decide on just one!

I went a little old-school on some of my accessories and I admit, I’ll probably go bolder with my jewelry next time I wear this. I kept going back to the Zaara pieces though. I love the way the amethyst in the Vanisri necklace complements the purple and teal in the corset and bolero.

The corset is from FINESMITH, a store I found on….guess where? You got it! The Marketplace..I’m telling you when it comes to marketplace I’m as bad as a little old lady on QVC. The Romance Corset is 100% mesh and comes with an attachable hud that gives you 5 different colors to choose from. See color choices and/or visit FINESMITH’s marketplace store, here.

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.

NEW @ Mimikri Kit “DEA”

It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve gotten a post out! I guess in sl time it has been…nearly a week I think? I think if it’s more than a week you get a fine from the blog police 😮  Hopefully they’ll factor in that I put together 2 different looks with Mimikri Kit’s newest creation, “DEA”


“DEA” Rigged Mesh Separates. Sequin Sweaters and matching Skinny Leggings Set available in 9 different colors to mix and/or match. Click here to teleport to Mimikri.

(above) Mesh Accessorizing; Mandala‘s CEEKEEEY Earrings paired with LaGyo’s new Pan Collar in silver.

(above) LaGyo Rose Headgear Hat; you can change the texture on the hat, the ribbon, and the flower, worn with the classic Maitreya Long Scarf.

I must admit that one reason it’s taken me so long to complete this post is, I’ve been playing around with windlight settings. There are so many amazing ones available to download. Strawberry Singh has very simple directions on how to download them and add them to your sky settings, here. You’ll also see that she has some of her own wl settings available to download, plus a list of links to some of her favorite ones.

a walk through Mayfair

If you haven’t already taken a walk through Mayfair, you should put it on your to-do list. This beautiful all-mesh sim is  home to mon tissue and celoe. I think it’s perfect for taking pics, especially if you play with the windlight settings and shadows…you can get all sorts of different looks and shadow effects…which means..less time in photoshop…which means to me…less time computer-hopping.

…bring out the gimp

Wow, time flies. I can’t believe it’s already been 30 days since starting my photoshop CS6 trial. When I opened it to edit this post it told me it would be the last use unless i wanted to purchase it for a gazillion dollars. So i minimized it and I plan on never turning off or restarting my computer again, lol. I’m sure that plan won’t work so I did download GIMP for this computer. I have an older version of ps on my old mac so if I can’t get used to GIMP I’m going to be computer hopping again. GIMP. What a name for a program. Isn’t that slang for a  person with missing limbs or something like that? (please if you have missing limbs don’t think I’m making fun or anything). And if my memory serves me correctly, wasn’t that what they called the leather-masked somdomizer in Pulp Fiction? I just think it’s an odd name and I’m mourning the loss of my trial so this is all crazy talk anyway. :p


At least I still can play with shadows in sl, knock on wood.

I finally got to go shopping at Maitreya since they’ve released all of their new mesh items. I was blown away, as I’m sure most of you were, by how beautiful and well made every piece was.

The Maitreya Stagioni Boots

The above boots were one of my Maitreya must-haves, and I think if I’m not careful, a certain someone could cause me death or bodily harm to get their hands on these.

The Stagioni boots blend in well with outfits from every season, which is why they’re perfect for the summer to fall transition. They have a slightly worn, suede texture and are available in 9 natural colors.

The Maitreya Leather Satchel

I hope my photos do these pieces justice, and show the detail and how real these things look! I think of some of the handbags and shoes I wore early in my sl and cringe. I just don’t see myself cringing over anything I’ve ever purchased from Maitreya..even long, long ago in the prim era. :p

It was love at first sight for me when I tried on The Lady Swing Skirt from The Secret Store.  Designer Maylee Oh says that she was inspired by 50’s fashion to create these long, lovely mesh skirts. Skirts include an optional fabric rose belt and are available in 7 beautiful versions. (optional belt and all skirt versions can be viewed here)

I went on a hunt for the perfect pair of earrings for this ensemble, and on my favorite hunting grounds…marketplace sl. I saw the black and white stripes on these earrings and thought they would look really cool with the skirt. The price was decent so I clicked “add to cart” and the product info came up. Well let me tell you..these are more than just your average earrings.

Created by Maxi Gossamer they are 100% mesh and scripted to open a menu when touched. From that menu you can choose from 12 different textures, or resize them. You can also edit them regularly to adjust the placement. Browse through her amazing marketplace store, Maxi Gossamer Jewellery, here. I was unable to find an inworld store so if you find one and  have a moment, please leave the store url in a comment on this post. 🙂
