LOTD 8.21

One of my favorite things and reasons for starting this blog back in 2011 was to dig back into my inventory for the things I quickly forget. And while none of these items are all that old (~a year I think?), they’ve all been sorely underused. Unfortunately, the skirt from Blueberry is a Luxebox exclusive, so to go back and buy it would cost a pretty linden. But there’s another similar skirt that’d work just as well at the mainstore (Blaire skirt).

Don’t Be Afraid to Catch Feels

Ever have an item show up at an event, and you may demo or pass it by, and in the end, you don’t buy it. Then, a few weeks later, you just HAVE to have it? That’s what happened with this top. I think I must’ve saw it on someone’s Instagram or in a photo elsewhere, but suddenly this style had to be mine. Thank god I remembered it was at Collabor88 last month (now in ISON‘s mainstore!)

Who see the flicker of a clipper when they light up
Flames just create us

I Feel It Fade

How amazing are these leather pants from Pixicat at this month’s Collabor88? There are other versions available with animated textures ‘n all, but just look at the shine on those thighs… I didn’t edit that in! Just fantastic.

Just Walk My Way

I never escape the major events without dropping a bit of Ls. Even when the theme involves camo prints, which are normally not my interest, somehow these designers just bust their butt and churn out must-haves.

I love this dress from ALT by Truth – the way it contours the body, shows a bit of cleavage, keeps it sexy, & if you look close at the texture, the ‘fabric’ on it is fantastic.  There’s a military theme running throughout Uber this round (obviously), & even the accessories, like this necklace from Kunst, are on point!

Dunwich Macabre

Dipping away from the norm, I found myself back at an old favorite gem in SL. It’s a long-standing sim based on the fictional town of Innsmouth, with its inherent creepiness amplified by my own personal soundtrack of Lovecraftian tunes, like this one from Caleb Hennessey. While it’s all pre-mesh, the effort remains unparalleled, especially for us Cthulhu enthusiasts.

I explored and crept around in a few new gems from Collabor88. Tres Blah put out the cutest set of regular and Halloween sweaters that finally fit the one shoulder look perfectly. Also, just in time for the coming winter season, Fri.day has a set of leg warmers out with a version for your favorite boots.

I guess I had a naive heart, cause boy, I let you have it

I could spend all day over at It All Starts with a Smile exploring the autumnal setup Kaelyn Alecto has going on. As an entire sim full of picturesque spaces, you’ll find yourself like I did, staying long after the camera has been put away just to check out the views. I highly recommend a visit.

When September Ends

septemberends600

I could not be more excited for Autumn this year, because at least in my city, it has been hot and so very humid. Over it. It’s time to break out my traditional reading of Sleepy Hollow, put up the Fall garlands (oh yes), and celebrate some decorative gourds.

One of my favorite sims to take pictures on is Izzie’s Mainstore, because every season, she changes around the entire area into something new and perfect, utilizing current items from other stores even (like Hive‘s rare Barn from the Arcade! Beautiful.) Had to break out a few recent finds, like the new comfy sweater from Truth’s clothing brand, ALT by Truth, available at Uber, and these perfectly fit new pants from Neve! With so many jeans in my inventory, it was about time I mixed it up.

Waiting Game

waitinggame600

Newness abounds at both Shiny Shabby & N21! It’s not often I shop and immediately blog something, but the stars aligned with this one (artist inspiration helps). RK Poses has a single female set for sale at the former, along with a few couples poses and single male; very much adoring the quality here. AND.. over at N21, an event that took mucho money from me this round, Fashionably Dead has these perfect knit dresses for sale. I had to grab two.

Revival

revival600

It’s now the middle of September, and thus we begin the transition from summer to fall (at least in the northern part of the globe). I’ve always lived in places where that transition is a longer process (that rarely ends with snow), so it’s always this dance between being warm enough in the day to being chilly at night, and that jacket better be ready. That’s immediately what I thought of when I saw these pants on a girl at one of SL’s social lounges… and shamelessly inspected them to find out they’re from Legal Insanity! The jeans have a few different styles with one set flannel color, but you can buy a few different add-ons that use a HUD to change the shirt portion. Pairing it with a new crop top from United Colors and the rare hair from Lamb at The Arcade, and you have the outfit I’ve been in for three days. I probably should change… 😉
