I am not sure how this affected this post, but in the interests of full disclosure, all the photos were shot, cropped and edited while I was laying down sharing a pillow with my cat who purred loudly in my ears while he watched me work. There’s something so relaxing about a purring cat, but that doubles down when they are laying so close you can feel every rumble of their purr. Of course, there was also the delight of discovering the fun new makeups in this lovely new Ella skin from Idiosyncrasy for Vanity Universe Skin Fair. I really was in a good place.
Ella is a gorgeous skin from Ashia Tomsen of Idiosyncrasy. It comes in three shades, Pale, Medium and Dark. I think I was purrfectly neglectful and forgot to shoot a pic of the dark tone, but you can see it on her Flickr photostream. I am showing off the lovely Kim lingerie from Baiastice and the fun flats from Periquita. The many fun makeup options and lip tattoos are after the cut. Continue reading →
Ok Luna, its week 2 of the 52 weeks of color challenge, and you have picked out the colour that I think I have the LEAST of in my inventory. I mean, I could almost start to take this personally, bcuz if you type the word “blue” into my inventory, perhaps 10 items come up. *sings to self* ‘I gots no blue bla da dee da da dooo…”
Yeah that’s right. I stole clothes from another friend. Why bother having my own clothes when my friends have cute things?
I’m bored with everything, so this might be my new blog theme “things other people wore and I liked.”
Meh, maybe not.
I’m bored with that now. Continue reading →
I hopped over to watch the Musashi-Do Fashion Show yesterday and wanting to be a good audience member, I dug in my closet a bit and slipped into a lovely bit of low arc clothing from Ingenue. The dress is Mama Loves Mambo and you know what, I do love the mambo. It’s a sexy shimmying song perfect for figure-hugging dresses like this one. The lovely sash down one side sways to the music and adds a lively touch to your dancing.
Idiosyncrasy’s Justice is a delightful skin that makes me think of the women you see in a de Lempicka painting. I love the rich, bold lipstick and eyeshadow and the strong look of this skin. It is a fundraiser skin for CARE International at the Skin Expo and a wonderful addition to any inventory. I wore it with the multi-color jewelry from Bliensen & Maitai because it suited the lovely halter top I picked up at Different Drummer – a new to me store.
I did some tinting again. I can’t resist. This time it was the lovely white lace cardigan from Coco. She made it tintable on the sytem and prims – so the color choices for that single cardigan are infinite. I went with a deep rosy purple that I really like with the side detail on the jeans – perhaps the cutest jeans on the grid. The shirt underneath is the incomparable Fearne top from MichaMi – whose detailed texture work is legendary. This top, though, is my favorite of all her work. The colors are so beautifully chosen and the depth of the textures are stunning.
In keeping with the cyber fashion you’ll find at ADDICTIVE SIM – Aleri Darkes included in the preview pack of her new Innana skins the GALACTICA tone and make up.
I think it looks like UnDead Fashionista. You know how it is. So many UnDead skins are freaking hideous – they are supposed to be, that’s the point. But I don’t like wearing HORROR and blood and guts. So while I appreciate the art that goes into making them, I really won’t sport them with much enthusiasm.
Gidge blogged the Paper Heart dress the other day and yet I could not resist its stripey goodness, so I thought I would see what other configuration I could wear it in and the very first thing I tried is another recent A-Bomb release, the pants from No More Words. Stripey heaven! A belt, some wine and thou and I was ready to go.
So I wrote this funny post about being assimilated into the beige excess nutf*ckery of Gidge and Winter and titled it Resistance Is Futile. Funnily enough, Gidge titled her post the same so when I hit publish, my post disappeared. Dang! So starting from scratch, where was I? Yes, I was innocently flirting with this guy who shall remain nameless when I got an IM from Gidge telling me that she and Winter were shopping at fri.day. Then, another im, they are buying all beige. Not tempted. Then the third – not an im, a snap of them in their matching Borg, er Beigewear. Damn, I was assimilated and tp’ed to fri.day where half the grid was shopping in a mad frenzy.
So it’s a funny story about my shoes. These stiletto’s from Periquita I picked up the day they were released. I excitedly took them home and put them on and……
I hated them.
They didn’t fit they looked crazy they were just all wrong. So I jammed them into the back of my closet angrily and went on with my pixel life. But then, when getting dressed I wanted some heels to wear with this t-shirt (only on the grid, right?)…..and I saw these heels …….and decided to give them another try.
You would think an AV over two years old would remember that SOMETIMES the grid is borked and things don’t rezz right, look nuts etc…..and you should always give them a second try. Continue reading →
