Waiting Game

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.

Color of Your Energy (Pose Fair 2015, Park 2)

Continuing on with Pose Fair 2015, I found this awesome prop from Everglow. There’s actually a series of them, ranging from ones you hold, stand on, and sit (single sit, displayed above). They work well for decorating a scene, like how they sit under Grace & I while using Verocity‘s adorable new Girlfriends pose!

Power of Three (Pose Fair 2015, Part I)

tripsie600nataposes600

My favorite time of year has arrived! Pose Fair 2015 opened its doors on Saturday, and within this annual event are over 90 pose designers with new, exclusive poses for your photographic needs. RIDIC Poses has a few new sets out that I love, especially this triple set Tripsie. It’s perfect for showcasing what me & these two lovely ladies emptied our wallets on at this round of Collabor88! I also found a new-to-me designer, Nata Poses, with a number of static poses that I bought for future poses. Check them out – Pose Fair 2015 is open until April 25th!

Fashionably Late

worn02

worn01

We can file this under the better late than never category, because even though much of this came out a few months ago at Collabor88, I still wear damn near all of it regularly! Especially these pants from Fashionably Dead. While I have been able to find beat up jeans that reach the floor, I do love the boyfriend cut, and the baggy bunching around the belt is such a nice touch! This camisole as well from ISON is just the right length to go with the slew of high waist pants and shorts I’ve been buying, beautifully draped. Thankfully better late than never means all pictured now available at their respective mainstores!

Skin: League – Erin (Sunkiss)
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard – Shimmer Eyes
Hair: Tableau Vivant – Springer Hair (Summer)
Top: ISON – Silk Camisole (Eggshell)
Pants: Fashionably Dead – Beat Up Jeans (Blue)
Shoes: Reign – Bow Peeps (Camel)
Feet: Slink – Womens High Barefeet (Rigged)
Hands: Slink – Mesh Hands (Relaxed)
Makeup: Maxi Gossamer – Groomed Eyelashes, Filthy – Lashes 1
Jewelry: Maxi Gossamer – Baroque Teardrop necklace, Yummy – Karina Glasses (Black)
Pose: Double Take – Say It To My Face, (second pose uncredited – wrote it down, & lost the paper! If you recognize this, please leave a comment, thank you!)

52 Weeks of Color – Wales, Jonquil, Tyrian Purple

Vintage Fair has a little over a week left (closes August 29th!), & I feel like I didn’t even crack the shell on what’s available. There’s so much! Sn@tch has these cute fluffy dresses that worked perfect with this pose from oOo Studio & shoes from ChaChaDie for “Wales”, and the top in “Tyrian Purple” is brand new paper.doll. PD has been one of my favorite stores for awhile, but the mesh items coming out of Zoey’s head lately are just so cute. Luckily, for “Jonquil” (brand new word to my vocabulary!), I’ve had this E! Eclectic sweater I’ve been sitting on, waiting to use in a post. Fate converged on this one, lemme tell ya!

52 Weeks of Color – Aqua Island

One part of SL I’ve been neglecting a bit is my shop, Hometown. It’s nothing much; just a couple of homes, skyboxes, and mesh items (such as fountains) that were made while this was a partnership. But it’s going back to just me again, and in a new location. Crack Den‘s my home in many ways, so why not make it my shop’s home, too, eh? I’m not quite showing it off here, though, cause I have some work to do. Namely a bit of update on the branding, and some new builds to complete. I’m sure there’s more than a few of you out there who know where I’m at on that – half a dozen partial build homes or commercial properties, just waiting for some love (& texturing.. maybe some doors). Anyway, while I work on that (& nearly finish getting caught up on this challenge with a Leri Miles dress & hair from Fashionably Dead – available at the Hair Fair 2012 til tomorrow), feel free to visit & check it out.
