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!

So It Goes

soitgoes600

I used to love when my parents lived downtown. For a few years, they lived on the 12th floor of an old apartment building, and given Phoenix isn’t terribly tall, you could see for miles and miles. During the day, it was noisy, with people bustling to work or running to lunch. But at night, the city gets so quiet when you’re not near all the sports/concert arenas. SL’s balconies might be without the noise, but I like to think the effect is similiar. Or I just love to spy. #creeper

Speaking of SL-ing, I’m a bit late, but it’s not yet a new Monday, so I’m still on time enough for this week’s Monday Meme from Berry!

1. Have you ever owned a sim in Second Life? – Not yet.
2. Have you ever created content in Second Life? – Yes, houses! Hoping to switch to mesh this year, and continue. We’ll see!
3. Have you ever driven a vehicle in Second Life? – I wouldn’t for a long time because I’d lag and run into things. But have since I got a better computer in 2011, and I run into less things now?
4. Have you ever gone sky diving in Second Life? – Yes, back in my first few months in 2007. I befriended a girl who worked at a club, and her boss had an island. It was SUPER COOL… back then. >.>
5. Have you ever played a sport in Second Life? – No
6. Have you ever gone clubbing in Second Life? – Yes, but not for a few years. Once I got involved in RP, I haven’t regularly been anywhere else.
7. Have you ever fangirled/fanboyed someone in Second Life? – Yes, anytime I see a Linden!
8. Have you ever taken a picture of your avatar in water in Second Life? – Too many times.
9. Have you ever taken a picture of a sunset in Second Life? – Yes, moreso after I got that newer computer and could actually see the water glistening. Prior, my settings were all on Low, and everything just looks awful on Low.
10. Have you ever taken a nude picture of your avatar in Second Life? – Yes… too many/not enough times?
11. Have you ever dated in Second Life? – Yes. One went into RL and now we live together. Huzzah!
12. Have you ever had or attended a wedding in Second Life? – I’ve attended both SL and RP weddings, but never had my own and don’t really plan to have one.
13. Have you ever drank, smoked or taken drugs in Second Life? – Only in roleplay.
14. Have you ever engaged in sexual activity in Second Life? – Who, meee? Mebbe. (Yes)
15. Have you ever been to Bukkake Bliss in Second Life? – Yes, back in the day. Is that still around? Crazy!

Be sure to head over to Kustom9 before this current round is up! KITJA and Bueno are only two of the many stores who took all my money this month (a few times over!) The latter even comes with a version to fit over the Maitreya mesh body I cannot seem to take off.

Under the Sun of Summerfest

summerfest

While some things in life might slow down in the summer, creators in SL do not. This is no more evident than at Summerfest ’14, an annual beach themed shopping event on its second year. Last year’s outing ended up being among my favorites of 2013, and this year is no different. I spent too much! You’ve already seen this short tank top all over from Tee*fy because it’s glorious, and just like Maitreya’s shorts from last post, these cut offs from Tres Blah fit so great around my legs. Add in these sandals from Ingenue & wavy hair from Exile, and you’ve only tipped the iceberg that is this year’s Summerfest.

PS. if you’re looking for a gorgeous summer sim, head over to Izzie’s Mainstore. I love how she changes it up on the regular, always looking fantastic!

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!

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!

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.

Fit to a T

The past week (month?) has been full of new releases that are letting my inventory get out of control again. The Monica in me is going to force myself to sort it today, but first: these pants and this top. Aura’s released a denim version of the Class Act pants with a pattern down the side, as if you had cut into the jean and sewn in an extra panel of fabric. It’s been done so well, and I love having jeans with a bit of spice! They’re debuting at FaMESHed, a new event feature all mesh, all the time! (Seriously, check it out, and with a full wallet.) ColdLogic also had a big release today, including these casual patterned tops that I’d love in RL, especially as temperatures are hitting the 90s now (with humidity).
