Pose Appreciation Week II

The week is actually long over now, but given I’m behind on my color challenge, too, I figure, better late than never! Anyway, two other posers I happily use on this blog quite a bit are Magnifique and Marukin. Both create well-set individual poses; I especially love the unique themed sets from Marukin, and I’ve gathered quite a few cute multi-person ones from Magnifique over time, including this Winter Wonderland pose from last year.

Also, I definitely time to break out the snow that I don’t get in real life, with designers obliging in kind! Auxiliary first released a version of the adorably cozy Cropped Double above at the Cinema even, but now has an everyday version available in store. And Ronsem busted out this leather jacket in a few different shades that required a bit of help deciding from my male fashionisto here. Both are mesh (though starting this post, won’t be denoting such anymore).

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!

Aggressive

I’ve clearly spent far too much in the last week, but with all that’s at the Vintage Fair this year, who can blame me? Or you! Without too much to say, I just loved this short mesh party dress from Gotzsche; I’m not a Legs kind of girl, but I do love how the style makes them look. Bliensen & MaiTai also has a great set of jewelry out that hang at a perfect length on your ears. Both pair well together, especially when pinning someone against the wall. (My friends are such good sports, aren’t they? Thanks Regi!)

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.

Spring Awakening

Even though El Nino didn’t give my area much of a winter, it seems Spring is on the horizon. Not just by the calendar or the rotation of the moon, not just by the temperature creeping up (only to drop two days later – gotta love Texas weather), but because my allergies are going nuts! Thank the lawd, in SL, the wind can blow as much as it’d like, and I feel no difference. So take THAT, pollen/dander/stuff! I don’t often strip down for this site, but I do love how gorgeous & well-fitting lingerie can be inworld. And I definitely love Worldwide Industries offshoot, ?why. Casual, classy, & sexy.

French Toast

Just a casual morning, & a cozy one at that. I had a different idea for today, but had a bit of trouble with location scouting, and will need to postpone it for later. The bowling shoes are from a previous FLF round (though I’m guessing still up in the store at regular price), & the shirt is available now at this month’s Collabor88!

Brown Sugar

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!
