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.

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.

A Place to Disappear to

confession600

This is one of those occasions where I was surfing through marketplace, pages upon pages of searches, and stumbled upon this top from Villena. I’m not even sure if it’s newer or if it’s been out for awhile, but doesn’t matter; I love it! It’s also worth mentioning that, while this photo doesn’t show it off, these new shorts from Addams are incredibly bootylicious, emphasized no doubt by the new boots at Collabor88 from ISON. They even come with a Maitreya-specific fit (best way to Boot, really.)

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!

Blaze of Glory

Get it, cause it’s a blazer? I spend far too much time around a man who loves a pun. Anyway.

Tons of new and awesome around this month, starting with a change I never make: new skin! I’m so picky about what looks like ‘Peri’, my original and main avatar of 6.5 years now, that I’ve had about… 7 skins on her. Total. 2 freebies, 2 Belleza, & 3 League. Skin Fair 2014 has opened up, and League‘s offering the brand new Erin! With any new skin I get, I have to sit on it for a few days. I bought it, but went back and forth until about Thursday when I finally settled in. The brows are updated, the face has more sharpness to it (them lips!), and the body is now more consistent. Okay, that’s a nice way of saying the nipples now look similar from C up to D/E-cleavage cup, lol. Also, this month’s Collabor88 has a Back to Business theme, which lead to this inspired cute blazer/tank top set from Tres Blah. There’s about 5-6 different color/pattern combinations, and while they do detach, I can’t get enough of it as it stands.

Skin: League – Erin (Sunkiss) (New @ Skin Fair!)
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard – Shimmer Eyes (Blue)
Hair: Elikatira – Spark
Top: Tres Blah – Blazer with Tank (Dark Sand)

Dig Up Her Bones

FaMESHed is usually a solid bet for finding either clothes, accessories, or stuff for the home as far as mesh is concerned. Two things that stood out for me, had me really excited to get in on the 1st. COCO Designs has released this bomber jacket molded to make it look like your hands are in your pocket, no matter the pose or animation in your AO. There’s a variety of earthy colors, and comes with & without both a built in hoodie (full/cropped versions). These Fishy Strawberry pants caught my eye on Flickr, coming in both camo and solid versions. With the slim tapered fit, they slide so nicely right into boots, for which I know many have sorely wished!

Tunnel Vision

mayday

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.

Bonus: an alternative shot I took without editing while playing around with Windlights

Pleats

Unintentional breaks are unintentional! Isn’t it a bummer when life gets to busy to pay attention to your creative side? Granted, I’ve been feeding mine a bit more in roleplay, and that’s good, too. But this… well this is different.

Not too much fuss with this, but it is an outfit I put together about a month ago for a post, and have worn it at least three times in a scene. I just love this skirt; because its HOC, it of course comes with a HUD that has two handfuls of options. This blazer is another of Emery‘s cute mesh releases lately, and the bodysuit from Secret Store, which has kept up a few cute texture-based clothes to go with adorable mesh they’ve been putting out.
