Oh, hello! Where the hell have I been? Oi, busy. That’s where. And I have about 6 posts here ready for the viewing, so it’s high time I got back on track. One project involved this build right behind me, which I’ll have for sale shortly at my store, [HT] Hometown; a larger sized warehouse built for a roleplay sim, and pretty open for other uses, too!
During all this busy-ness, the shopping hasn’t stopped, much to my wallet’s dismay. I found a few new-to-me items that I couldn’t take off for days; one being this Veronica hair from Exile. My character in roleplay doesn’t have shorter hair, so this is purely for fun, but I love the tussled look of it. Then, there’s these p-er-fect Doc Marten replicas from J’s, a long time SL shoe staple. I suckered myself into two pairs.

Thankfully I now live in a place where you can actually feel the changing of the season, and it’s hit this week. Granted we’re not talking a dramatic change in weather, but since I get up so early for work in the morning (& wow, has work been busy), I’m awake to feel the humidity fade and the crisp cool air creep back in. ColdLogic is ready with a few new fall releases, including this Matta sweater shown above and an adorable sweater dress/jacket combo that is all over the blogs right now. Seriously, go grab yourself a Pumpkin Spiced Latte, come back to your computer, head over to ColdLogic, forget it’s possibly still scorching hot, & dive into Autumn.

Starting tomorrow, AMIRA is hosting a fun gatcha festival called Summer by the Sea! One of the vendors over there is gonna be Bounce This poses, where Bouncer Criss is putting out six different poses (one of them rare!) that include a finch to hold. It’s a perfect pose prop for single person shots, or shoot, they’re trans (no copy), so you can pass one to a friend, and pretend you’re all friends of the feathered kind.

I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling ready to just move on to summer after such a lackluster winter, given the items coming out from some of our favorite shops. These capris are a fresh release at coldLogic, as always in multiple colors (both springy and standards), & while the cuffs around my calves required some shape adjustment (or later, fixing the alpha), I couldn’t pass up that color. The bag, sunglasses, & top are all limited-time items. The tote you can find at [A] Limited until they run out (six different designs here), the top is from Kyoot as part of this cycle’s Stumblebum (which is up for only two more days!), and these adorable sunglasses are out at this month’s Collabor88, which has a French theme going on. Seriously cute items this month.
Finally, League released a new skin named Jen, and while I had Taylor a few years back, I ended up moving back to Belleza (my default for Peri) for a softer look on the face and breast area. Thankfully, Jen has about five different options for cleavage (enhanced & dehanced), & I think the skin overall is a bit softer then the other I had. I rarely change my default skin, usually sticking to one for a year or more, so I’m still getting settled with it. But I think this is a keeper.

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.
I’ve had this in my draft folder since the winter, and was totally oblivious that I hadn’t posted it yet. The dress itself is from the Vintage Fair, with a full range of colors available in the store, and I’m so tempted every time I stop in to buy them all. Perfect little sweater dresses. Leggings with boots has also been a trend I feel deep into over the winter months, though it’ll be soon time to put those deep my inventory – summer will be here before I even realize!
My new computer has finally arrived, and while I’m still getting used to a few things (such as running on high with shadows, no lag), and running into new issues on ultra (shadows bork, depth of field goes wonky), I’m still very, very pleased.
Sadly, these pants are no longer available to my knowledge, but if you’re an old SL user with a knack for hoarding, you might still have some pants from Celestial Studios, which still quite frankly hold up. Added with both recent mesh boots & sweater, and tada: old ‘n new!
