When I got too busy (well, too distracted) for blogging, I had a good handful of images I’d done and posts nearly ready to go. I should’ve just bit the bullet and posted back then, and while I’ve trashed a few tragic mistakes, there are a few I’m still very keen on. This dress. I’m so very keen on this dress. I coveted it for months before finally buying it back in May (original post title: May Day), and even this week, I’ve worn it for three days. As my friend Zero warned me, “it starts to smell.” Suppose I should change… tomorrow.
Only a few short days left this year, and I’ve got a few more weeks to go, but dangit, I can finish this. Have you done this challenge, too? Probably better at keeping up than I have been, but either way, good luck to you, too.
The continued quest to catch up includes two colors in which it was difficult to figure outfits for both. But, once I saw what I needed, the rest came together pretty easily. The above dress in Hot Cinnamon is one of the offerings from Essences you’ll find at My Attic this round (though I think the other color options are a bit more fun). I’m also loving this newer hair from Truth; the style has volume without being overdone & the rigging sits perfectly for me. It’s a new staple, that’s for sure.
And then with Royal Blue, well. I feel like a box of crayons! It’s a brighter shade of blue, so once I realized this sweater from Celoe has been sitting in my inventory unused, I decided to follow suit with the rest. Flip that, then, for the skybox, which sadly is no longer available, as Molto Bene! is closed. The pose, however, is from a newer pose designer and all around adorable person under the banner of Muse! Ellie has a few very affordable poses, as well as fantastic bruises for you roleplayers out there.
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.
You know how sometimes you’ll see a hair style in SL that you just wish you could duplicate in real life? Yeah. This would be it. First born child naming rights to the person who can get my hair to look this gorgeous for real. Newish release from Elikatira, it’s mesh and sits so perfectly along my avatar. I’ve also been wearing gift that was set out at Hucci for a few days; there’s many other designs available, and it molds very well to the body, too.
A new round of FaMESHed is up, and Jane has another mesh win! There’s three colors of the plaid patterned Polly, and another three colors of the more solid Mary Ellen. Wasabi Hills also has another great mesh version of her hair out at the CHIC² birthday event that is such a cute style. Check both out before they’re gone!

If you’re looking for a sale, head over to Truth District, where a bunch of stores have items up to 50% off! Keep in mind you need to be in the Truth District Update Group to have access (250L join fee). I picked up another pair of the Gos Triumph boots (not pictured) cause I couldn’t help myself.
Aptly named because I’m hopped up on four medications to fix this sinus infection, this post has been three days in waiting. Haven’t even felt like changing. But, that’s partly due to how cozy I feel in it. New sweaters & shoes from Celoe that’re too perfect to pass up, and the chair is a newish project called Atelier Kreslo, where two designers collaborate on an exclusive chair. This one has six different sits (see example here) and comes in six different versions. The bag is also new at the Secret Store, and until March 30th, you can have it customized!

I was originally going to hop over to the Zombie Popcorn: Dark Magic Winter event sometime this weekend when the initial crowd cleared, but I saw this new League coat pop up on my plurk timeline, & I got that little bug. You know, that one that goes “must.have.now” & doesn’t go away til you feed it? I’m getting it more & more as I continue with this blog; it’s quite dangerous.
There’s plenty over there to see/buy/gawk at, so be sure to check it out. The sim looks gorgeous and wintery/Christmasy (below is one part).
The last of the items I bought from the new store Celoe pretty much shaped the rest of this outfit. Luckily, deep down in my inventory was this Tiny Bird sweater that I hadn’t worn in ages, & I surely missed it! The puffed up prim works perfect with the mesh of these pants.
