How the Night Changes

seasonschange600

It’s not quite snowy winter here yet, but I suppose that’s still on par, seeing as the season doesn’t official change for 2 more weeks! But in the evening, it’s still chilly enough to break out those scarves and sweaters we love, and of course, ColdLogic delivers with this adorable sweater dress combo. It’s so cozy to dress in, and works perfectly for this equally cozy and sweet pose from RACK Poses – out at this month’s The Liaison Collaborative, which should be wrapping up in the next few days!

Thanks to my friend Charlie for posing with me!

All that Glitters is…

allthatglitters600

With Thanksgiving behind us, now begins quite the shopping season. I didn’t have too much in RL to buy, but I went a bit crazy on all those 50% off gift card sales, like at Trompe Loeil, Barnesworth Anubis, & Cheeky Pea. Combine that with Black Friday sales at ColdLogic, BOOM, Reign, & others… my wallet hurts. Especially considering Arcade starts tomorrow!

But before that parade of gachas begins, I couldn’t resist so much of what’s offered at this month’s Uber. In just a few short months, it’s proven to be one of those events where most designers really bring their A game. I mean, just look at this dress/jacket combo from Foxes – perfectly fluffy in the skirt, HUD-controlled jacket and top, and glitter. Shiny, party-rific glittery goodness. It’s perfect for those inevitable holiday and New Year’s parties to come!

When I met you in the summer… (Pose Fair, Part II)

We’re past the midway point now of Pose Fair 2014, with less than 5 days left to go! I’ve had these poses photographed since Day 2, but then, life piled on anything it could. Luckily there’s still time to pick items up before they’re gone! (Well, most will likely end up in mainstores, but who knows when, right? Right!)

Just in time for summer, both Bounce This Poses and Vanity Poses have released sets for your beachy fun. The top set (BTP) might technically be geared towards girls, but I think you can swing a couple guys into the set just fine. Thank you to Sora, Lundy, & Clint for hanging out & posing with me!

Climbing

I’ve been back on a fashion binge as of late, much to the chagrin of my SL wallet. But when your favorite stores & events keep coming out with stuff like this? Who am I to resist, honestly. (Let’s forget about restraint right now.)

A new round of Collabor88 debuted on the 8th, and UFO & BCC teamed up to bring these holey jeans. Since they’re a special design concerning the texture & alpha, I did have to adjust my legs a bit so that they didn’t poke through. But I have a few specially adjusted shapes in my inventory anyway for these occasions, it’ll work! The inspiration this round is a space age theme, giving us gems like this Galaxias necklace from Noodles.

DeeTalez also release these adorable cardigans not too long ago that fit really well again my avatar, and I just love the way they drape. One of my favorite stores, and for a reason!

Lastly, this blog will be changing addresses shortly – please update your links to http://heyperina.com!

Keeping Warm

warmth

It all starts with a coat… a coat from Valiant. I must’ve shown it to my handsome manprop about 5 times before he realized how in love with it I’d become. But just look at it! The design is lovely, executed very well, and as predicted, he just looks so good in it. If I had a male character I played on the regular, I’d buy it for myself and wear it 24/7. Alas, I’ll leave it to Esau for me to fawn over, and instead house myself in this trenchcoat from League, which I might be a bit in love with, too.

Pose Appreciation Week II

The week is actually long over now, but given I’m behind on my color challenge, too, I figure, better late than never! Anyway, two other posers I happily use on this blog quite a bit are Magnifique and Marukin. Both create well-set individual poses; I especially love the unique themed sets from Marukin, and I’ve gathered quite a few cute multi-person ones from Magnifique over time, including this Winter Wonderland pose from last year.

Also, I definitely time to break out the snow that I don’t get in real life, with designers obliging in kind! Auxiliary first released a version of the adorably cozy Cropped Double above at the Cinema even, but now has an everyday version available in store. And Ronsem busted out this leather jacket in a few different shades that required a bit of help deciding from my male fashionisto here. Both are mesh (though starting this post, won’t be denoting such anymore).

52 Weeks of Color – Russett & Feldgrau

Oh, hello there! Been awhile, right? I know. The last month has been spent moving apartments (a process that took at least 2 weeks, and was actually two moves… don’t ask), and getting deep into some roleplay. Alas, this fell by the wayside. Not just the challenge, but blogging in general. But! All seems to be settling now, so here comes the first of many.

I love both of the tops in these shots, since the tank at paper.doll fits one of my mesh shapes perfectly, and this Ducknipple tank/sweater combo comes with a HUD for color change options. Both fabulous & already in my regular wardrobe rotation.
