Just Walk My Way

yonce600

I never escape the major events without dropping a bit of Ls. Even when the theme involves camo prints, which are normally not my interest, somehow these designers just bust their butt and churn out must-haves.

I love this dress from ALT by Truth – the way it contours the body, shows a bit of cleavage, keeps it sexy, & if you look close at the texture, the ‘fabric’ on it is fantastic.¬† There’s a military theme running throughout Uber this round (obviously), & even the accessories, like this necklace from Kunst, are on point!

Revival

revival600

It’s now the middle of September, and thus we begin the transition from summer to fall (at least in the northern part of the globe). I’ve always lived in places where that transition is a longer process (that rarely ends with snow), so it’s always this dance between being warm enough in the day to being chilly at night, and that jacket better be ready. That’s immediately what I thought of when I saw these pants on a girl at one of SL’s social lounges… and shamelessly inspected them to find out they’re from Legal Insanity! The jeans have a few different styles with one set flannel color, but you can buy a few different add-ons that use a HUD to change the shirt portion. Pairing it with a new crop top from United Colors and the rare hair from Lamb at The Arcade, and you have the outfit I’ve been in for three days. I probably should change… ūüėČ

How We Roll

howweroll_600

Over time, you might find those brands who slowly creep their way into your inventory’s heart, filling it up. And then there’s others, who do it more rapidly, because every release is something you must have. Addams is the latter, because not only is the rigging so well with my Maitreya Lara body, the styles are just so on point. Especially this top from the current round at Collabor88 (which hopefully should be… maybe? less crowded now that it’s been two days, but I don’t know – it was insane getting in!) It’s made to go over the bikini top that’s also on sale, but easily can be worn without. It matches perfectly with the not-new-but-new-to-me worn jeans at the mainstore location.

Now, I’m not really sure which category Lamb falls into; I just know that over the years, I’ve collected a ton of her hair. And definitely added two more that are out now at C88. One drapes a little more over the face (shown), the other a bit more off of the face, and both with these loose waves I wish I could pull off in RL.

52 Weeks of Color – Hot Cinnamon & Royal Blue

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.

Crisp

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.

52 Weeks of Color – Thistle, Pueblo, & Deep Pink

Who has two thumbs and is playing catch-up on this challenge? This girl! Because I need to be up in about 5 hours, I shall make this quick. The top in Thistle is from Atomic’s offering at the last Dressing Room Blue cycle (not out now, but a gorgeous skin is in it’s place), and the necklace is RezIpsa Loc’s offering for the very last Super Bargain Saturday! Very sad to see that Weekly sale end – it was run so well and always had great stores.

Secondly, a dive into my inventory found a sweater from one of my first favorite stores, looong time SL fashion staple Nyte ‘N Day, that fit perfectly with Pueblo. I meant to check, but I believe this is still out in an array of colors. Amazing what organizing can do.

Lastly, one VIP group that has always served us shoppers well is Aura’s, and a few changes have been made. Most notably, the percentage from sales in credit has gone up and all gifts are going to be moved to a convenient gift wall. Including this crazy pink strapless backless sexilious dress! The price of the group has¬†gone up as well a bit, but this one is worth it. Really worth it. Tyr’ll treat you good, & with underboob.

Fantasy Faire 2012 Preview I – Grim Bros & Moonlight Obsession

For those really into the side of SL and gaming that explores the extraordinary & mystical side, whether its through roleplay or normal time inworld, the Fantasy Faire is your shopping event of the year. Running from April 21-29 & supporting Relay For Life, this week-long event is housed on eight sims and filled with nearly any type of fantasy genre you can think of. On the¬†Meandervale¬†sim, you’ll find Grim Bros and Moonlight Obsession, whom I’m previewing for you today!

Grim Bros, a store by Cutea Benelli, is full of gowns, gear, & gadgets that are full steampunk, cyberpunk, post-apoc.. you get the idea. I don’t often get to wear clothes from those genres, rping on a modern day urban sim (well – it could fit, but not for my character), so it was fun to break these out. Both of these dresses, Gingham Lady & Patchwork Princess (among many other items!), will be featured at the Fantasy Faire.

Also on the Meanderville sim is Moonlight Obsession. A store by Lunaria Eclipse, MO is a great place for fantasy avatar needs, especially in the fairy aspect. Featured below is a full avatar that she’ll have available at the Fantasy Faire (minus the hair), called Dragonfly Fairy. All items (skin, shape, eyes, modesty clothes, all attachements like the wings, antenna, and ears) will also be sold individually, too, should you only need a few pieces!¬†This is also a genre I don’t get to venture out into much at all (well, outside of WoW, that is!), so I had a fun prancing around pretending for this.

Lazy Days

I should say, “lazy days”, as this post is named, is in terms of going back to old favorites while being actually very un-lazy otherwise. I think I spent a good two, three days in this top and jeans, along with the new Lamb mesh hair (which is wonderful!) My friend & I are moving our shop to an inworld location, so that’s kept me far busier than I thought I would be, and I must give a hats off to anyone who’s done it before me. Worth it, of course! If you’re looking for homes and other items, including some snazzy mesh fountains, feel free to check us out inworld or on marketplace (if you can fight the slowness!)

52 Weeks of Color – Folly

Bold, bright – when I see the color Folly, I could only think of science fiction, the kind where colors punch through an otherwise dark and noir film for a purpose. Example: Bladerunner. And then I struggled through my wardrobe, realizing I’m lackluster in that department. Nevertheless, it was an excuse to shop a little, grabbing another version of the Retro Henley from Aura, and to visit one of my oldest of the favorite sims list, Devil’s Moon. Some changes seem to have removed part of it that looked so very Bladerunner, but I suppose the notion is still there in the details.

On a related note, check out this short feature on Douglas Trumball’s setup and design for that opening sequence to the movie, which still blows me away. All special effects in this movie were done in-camera – the last to do so – until the Director’s Cut many years later.
