Winter Abounds

In case you haven’t noticed already, winter is in full swing up here in the Northern Hemisphere, and designers are popping out sweater after scarf after reindeer. With Christmas only a little over a week away, its high time to use up all you can before the day passes, and well, our Santa hats become useless til next year! Today is also the last day of the Winter Fair, which has both holiday and winter items alike, such as this cute reindeer pose prop from Nani Poses! It has 5 different options, and it looks great to leave out even when not using it for pictures. You can also grab this new scarf from Auxiliary at the Dressing Room’s new location, combining both rooms into Fusion.

52 Weeks of Color – Pistachio

Again with the FaMESHed and CHICĀ²! Two posts in a row, but you know, when the goods are there… like Aura’s new mesh Bunneh hoodie that comes in a plethora of colors (I picked Grass since it’s close to this week’s challenge color!) and the inner lining is such a brilliant touch. Like the hoodie, the table set from {what next} requires a mesh enabled viewer to see properly, & you’ll be grateful for it! Each seat has multiple sits for men and women (cushion optional), some include rezzable props, and it comes in three different colors (yellow, iron, & black).

Sidenote: I totally spaced on last week’s color while I was at A-Kon last weekend, sooo.. doing it out of order this time! Oops. Cobalt to come!

52 Weeks of Color – Bright Turquoise

Bit late this week (by a day) with my color post, but turns out, event blogging keeps ya busy! Who knew, right? I get it now, all you normal event bloggers – takes some time, doesn’t it? Anyway, I can’t seem to get off my beachy/summer kick, even though I’m not near an ocean (I think it’s about 6 hours away) nor am I one to visit the beach often. I guess SL will suffice for now. And it felt nice to pull out some old favorites, like this bikini top & board shorts from Reek.

Class Act

There’s a few standout mesh creators at the moment who are both, to me, mastering this shiny new (to SL) technology and managing to crank out something creative ‘n fresh for us consumers to drain our wallets on. aka This post is full of NEW NEW NEW. Insert giant smile emoticon. Aura has released a redux of an old favorite in mesh and in a plethora of patterns/colors for heels and flats. As a fan of the low rise, these are a big hit, as is coldLogic’s new mesh tanks, which don’t cut into my avatar at the shoulders like many others.

Oh, Holy Night

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!

Can’t Drive

As much fun as it is to girl-out in clothes, I’m a bit less feminine at heart, so thus, we have a more tomboy look. Sadly, couldn’t find a post that didn’t mess up the text on the t-shirt, but it says “you’re just a virgin who can’t drive.” If you’ve seen that classic movie, Clueless, you know what I mean (clip below).

Ain’t No Snow

…Unless I come to SL, because I live now (& have for most of my last 27 years of life) in a place that winter doesn’t visit very often. Of course, my area has seen a small share of the winter chill, but it’s not lasting as long as I had hoped. Thankfully, many sims are all decked out in the frozen stuff, and when I’m idling, it’s there I’ll stand, just to get my sad little fix.

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!

Source Code

Named for my male counterpart, Jared Source, who was a good sport while I raced through about five different versions of my outfit, patiently waiting in his one version. Venus ‘n Mars, right? Coincidently, we’re both wearing pants from Ronsem, a store I found a few months ago through Harvest atĀ Gorean Geek, and while I usually wear ’em with flip flops, winter months demand a bit more cover, via some oldie but goodie combat boots from Abyss.
