If you’ve ever owned a puffy vest in RL, you know just how amazing it is. Normally made with down feathers, it traps in heat within your core, and it’s comfy to boot! I was so happy to see Tres Blah came out with one for this round of Collabor88, along with thermals to put underneath, because they’re both pretty perfect! And while I don’t get cold in SL, nor snowboard in both lives, it sure doesn’t hurt to look the part, eh? Both fit well with the FLite boots from this round of The Arcade and FLite googles that you can pick up at Winter Trend!

Breaking: a Vintage Fair Preview

In just a few days, one of CHIC’s best events returns for another year of decade & era fun, aka the Vintage Fair. I’ve been lucky to be chosen for some early access, and while many stores haven’t set up yet, there’s still plenty to showcase before the doors open on August 4th. The event is sponsored by Aura, Belleza, Cheeky Pea, ColdLogic, GizzA Creations, Indyra Originals, PurpleMoon Creations, Trompe Loeil, as well as the amazing oOo Studio, who has put out a sort of ‘trip around the world’ theme. One of the sets you’ll find on display is called Breaking, featuring various still shot poses of someone break dancing. Check out the rest once VF opens on the Retro sim!

Foul Play

A new round of Fluid began Jluy 15th, and while its a smaller group this time, the overall theme is right up my alley! Athletics (broken up into Cheerleading, Basketball, and Football/Soccer) brings you pose sets like Y’s Art & Poses’ “Love & Basketball”, which I’ve paired with one of the animations out of Motionless’  “Touchdown” set. Then, Art Dummy made a few mesh items to decorate a gym are with (or shoot, can use the sink/medicine cabinet/towel in your own bathroom!) that include animations within the sink.

You can see more shots using these poses/props and others over at The Ego Co., and be sure to check it out before this rotation ends on July 30th!

Muchos gracias to The Snoodle and Giles Chauveau for their patience & manproppin’!

One of my favorite bits about Fifty Linden Friday coming back, I’ll admit, is that is involved again. I’d buy Darling Monday’s clothes on the regular anyway (& hair!), but I could always count on a great deal periodically on Fridays from her store. Her classic style just goes with everything! And she’s ventured into mesh now with more of staple wardrobe picks, like these tank tops that have been released. They fit great (standard sizing with a small flair at the bottom to fit over mesh pants) and as usual, come in many colors to choose from! She’s also got a few new pose sets both from the Pose Fair and I think one since, or to be released, that you must check out. None are featured here today, but in the past and definitely in the future (since they work so well with my avatar!)

Shake That Ass

I’m very specific about my jeans. RL or SL, they need to fit and they need to look right as far as the texture. I’ve been pretty disappointed so far with the mesh jeans I’ve found, despite an obvious effort on the part of designers, and it’s mostly because.. ya lose the ass. In a world where you can be any shape, size, etc, its important not to lose those feminine curves when you want them. I saw these jeans posted over at Barbie Does SL (which is a great blog to bookmark), tried them on just for kicks, and behold.. junk in the trunk! The price is a little higher than others have charged so far, but they are equipped with a texture changing belt and a few accessories to show or hide. As a girl who’ll spend $100 on jeans in the real world that fit just right, I dare not resist. So, in case you missed them before on BDSL or another blog, here they are again.
