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)

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. 🙂

BOOM @ The Vintage Fair

BOOM’s Vintage Fair item is the appropriately named Darling tops. 5 colors to choose from, all with sweet little white polka dots and a lacy white collar.

Now that I’m blogging again, I can feel my “skin fever” kicking in and I’ve been demo’ing skins all over the place. Only a matter of waiting for the linden fairy now. In the meantime I’ve been going through my “favorite skins” folder. Anything Rhapzody Wilde of Mynerva has ever made is in this folder. Plain Jane was my very first Mynerva skin. I wore more tanned skins back then..but I’m still in love with this skin..to me it looks very unique-fresh and young.

I’m not super excited about any of the photos I’ve taken yet with my new shadows and all. And they’re coming out with very light pencil like graph lines on them..i try to erase them in photoshop and when I shrink the pics down to blog/flickr size a lot of times you can’t see them…but sometimes you can. I need to do some more googling  and stalking blogs. And like I’ve said before, any sl photography or photoshop tips are appreciated!

Please be patient with me while I’m learning and finding my style. ♥

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!

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 🙂

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.

omg so many amazing things have been coming out…i’ve been missing so much over the past few weeks, and i feel like I say this all the time…but here I go again…

If you are a designer and you’ve sent me items to blog..please be patient..my sl is…i don’t think there are any words for what my sl is right now…but i’m trying really hard to get everything organzied and normal, (hahaha at normal) and I hope to be able to put a lot more work into my blog.

I even missed the release of Mini, Laqroki‘s newest skin that has been getting mixed reviews from the people I’ve spoken with. But I have to say, it was love at first sight  when I tried her on. A definite different look for Laqroki, yet you can still see the “family resemblance”. Mini is young and fresh, innocent….like a flower just about to blossom 🙂 I’m loving her and she will be my numero uno face for a while I do believe…

I put Mini in MischaMi‘s newest dress, Vee and some boho jewelry, and omg Lelutka‘s new Mischa wedges which you’ll probably see me in for at least 3 or 4 posts in a row, lol..in love with those as well…
