Shopping Time:Mommy and Me Version

Pram Shopping

 

I decided to check out an in world shopping group I joined that has a weekly sales event. Bargains for Babies has a Friday sale day, and several different shops have items for your Zooby Babies for 75L which is a steal.

Gidge and Sophie Uriza

 

I was unable to resist the deal at Leri Miles designs though, because it’s a coordinating sweater to go with your Zooby Babies outfit! Each item for only 75L? Sweet!

I’ve worn Leri Miles before, so I felt comfortable picking up both pieces, and I wasn’t dissapointed.

NOT HINGED HEELS

Nzuri_005

 

Tracy Rubble of Nzuri spent the past few weeks learning how to make mesh. She’s on my plurk timeline, and watching her learn to make these has been a hilarious adventure, and truly watching someone blossom through their labor of love.

She’d post for help, post her frustrations, post her “OH NO WHAT IS WRONGs” but my FAVORITE one was the day she thought she was done and the shoes were GIANT. LOLOLOL.

Honestly, it was entertaining but also made me excited to watch someone grow and blossom. Continue reading

A Flock of Geese?

jan15_003

As I am typing this a flock of geese are honking overhead and I am wondering what they think they are doing. It is January, weeks too early for them to be heading north. I hope it is not a harbinger of an even warmer summer. That reminds me of a song on Donald Fagen’s recent album. The chorus goes something like, ” They may fix the weather in the world, just like Mr. Gore said. But tell me what’s to be done, Lord, about the weather in my head.”

jan15_001

Thankfully Second Life lets us find any kind of weather we want. With the geese outside making me think of spring, I set out to find banks of flowers and found exactly what I needed at The Garden, the lovely sim with a quest game. I didn’t do the quest this morning, but I did find some flowers and stretch and enjoy the sun. Certainly my clothing is perfect for a sunny day with the flirty little skirt from Tee*fy that I picked up at Collabor88. The top is a brand new release from MiaMai and combines casual comfort with great design details such as the draped top, pleated front gathered with the tiny bow. My pumps are a new release from Nzuri.

I dug out this fun and playful jewelry from Violet Voltaire and chose a fun mop of hair from Truth. See how delightfully the bow gathers the bodice?

My skin is Belleza’s new Ava. As always, Belleza’s skins are classic and restrained except this time Tricky Boucher went just a bit crazy and released eleventyseven billion shades of lipstick tattoos. Sadly, I can only wear one at a time.

My new pallet lounger from Trompe Loeil continues to be my favorite toy in the house. It will be released for the Four Walls Hunt which starts TOMORROW !!!! It’s loaded with poses and is a great casual piece for a nook or comfy living room.

Nzuri released new mesh shoes today. And I am not wearing them. Because it’s morning and morning made me think of lingerie and then I remembered that Nzuri also makes lingerie.

Welcome to my stream of consciousness blogging.

He Had It Coming

Grand Opening Nzuri

I suppose since Gidge and I both were at the Nzuri grand opening party, it makes sense that we both ended up blogging our lingerie today. Totally not a coordinated plan. It was a fun party and the lovely ladies who attended mostly wore lingerie since that is her store’s specialty niche. I DJ’ed for the party a fun set of burlesque and cocktail jazz music with some new remixes and modern electro-jazz. When Tracy Rubble, Nzuri’s owner/creator mentioned that Cell House Tango was one of her favorites, I had to add it to the set.

He Had It Coming

That was when we got raided.

It’s Only Morning

Nzuri Anya Lingerie from brand Relaunch

Nzuri held it’s relaunch party this past weekend and there was a lingerie party held to celebrate. I dithered forever at what to wear, because, while I LOVED everything, my pixel girl is a bit modest when it comes to lingerie and there was SO MUCH super sexy there, I had trouble deciding what to wear.

Nzuri Anya Lingerie

I settled on a practical bra and panty set with garters called Anya in a gorgeous red texture  and nice hand drawn details that make me admire the work that went into it. Perfect for blogging oh say – NEW SKIN.

And with that, let me introduce you to a beautiful new skin from Belleza called Lily. I love Tricky’s work always – and this one is no exception. It comes in 20 different makeups and six skin tones. I’m wearing pale. We blondes bitch and moan a LOT when brows don’t suit us, so girls – RUN DON’T WALK.

BELLEZA - Lily - Pale tone Makeup 7
Lily also has red brows and dark brows  avail on the tattoo layer.

Beautiful work as always, Tricky.

Early On a Sunday Morning

Nzuri Beryl

I do not understand why my cat thinks I have to wake up when he wakes up, but he is so insistent, rubbing his face on mine and meowing over and over and over until I get up. Unfortunately, he woke up at 3:45 this morning. I have tried to go back to sleep a few times, but without any luck. So, bleary-eyed and grumpy I logged into Second Life hoping to get cheered up. And of course, i was! The first step in the process of turning my frown upside down was putting on this romantic Beryl Dress from Nzuri. It’s a beautifully done empire waisted dress with a lovely pink skirt and floral bodice. The belt at the bodice is a great detail that elevates the dress out of the ordinary.

Color!

Chatkare Culture Shock

I love the bold, color-blocking in Appolonia Criss’s new dress called City Chic. She takes a very mod style and updates it with a blouson top and short, very modern sleeves.

Chatkare Culture Chic

I decided to note the military-inspird sleeves by adding the gauntlets from Nzuri, though most gauntlets don’t have adorable bows at the wrist.

Chatkare Culture Chic

This brilliant and bold color got me looking for a brilliant and bold place to shoot and that led me to the Labyrinth of Absurdity.

Oscar, the Music Critic

oct23_018
I mixed Kungler's Lavinia Top with the SHI pantsuit. It came with a solid black top, but I liked the addition of this tone on tone print. I am wearing the gauntlets with a bow on the wrist that Tracy Rubble made for me for Nzuri.

I got my new cat Oscar back in June. He was 11 when I got him from the Humane Society and a bit rough around the edges what with spending eight months waiting for someone to appreciate his unique qualities. Perhaps if they had known that he was a music critic someone might have found him first and I would have missed out on his delightful quirks and wonderful conversations like this one.  I first discovered his talent while I was working on my What I Like column for Shopping Cart Disco at the computer in the kitchen. All of a sudden, I heard music playing from the bedroom and got up to check and there was Oscar sitting by the ipod which I have in a speaker base. How cute, I thought, he must have been rubbing his nose on it and turned it on.
