Uber Classy

uber2

So I went to uber the other day and promptly made my wallet cry blood. I wanted pretty much everything I saw. I especially squee’d when I saw this blazer from erratic. It’s very well made, feels perfect for spring and come in several nice colors. I matched it with these cargo-pants from Addams and the very sexy boots from JD.

Be fierce, Sister

spring1

New week, new meme challenge from the lovely Miss Singh. This time around we’re suppose to fill in the blanks with whatever pops up in our mind first. That’s exactly what I did. Here is the unedited, shameless Veenya version:

I am… fierce.
I want… money.
I have… love.
I wish... for better health.
I hate… dudebros.
I fear… the patriarchy.
I search… for sisterhood.
I wonder… about life on other planets.
I regret… nothing.
I never… cease to be amazed.
I always… try.
I usually… fail.
I dance… like nobody’s watching.
I sing… in my head.
I often… doubt myself.
I sometimes… laugh for no reason.
I cry… when I need to.
I need… RL teleportation.
I should… eat something.
I love… my life.

There you have it. Meanwhile I’m completely in the spring feeling. I’m one of those people that will shed the winter coat at first sign of spring, even if I end up walking around shivering cold for a month. There’s sun and green grass and pretty flowers. Oh and evil little torturous birds. With their squeaking and chirping and… I mean. I love spring! Most of it anyway…

Meet me in the dark alley

Tomorrow is the 21st, time for 21Shoe again. These babies from Glamistry will be up for grabs. they come in this silver color and a gold color, you get both for the price of one, which is a good deal. And as always with Glamistry, you can buy additional colors right in the HUD, such a great concept.

Yesterday I went to a new-to-me event, IDK. I picked up this nice looking blazer from Addams there. It comes with a built-in optional T-shirt, but I’m still madly in love with my Butch tank-top from Sn@tch, so I paired it with that and a nice looking pair of jeans from ColdLogic.

A string of lights

stringlights1

For todays post I drew inspiration from a recent post from Grazia. I’ve been reading her blog since long before I started blogging myself and she’s always been a huge inspiration for me. She’s got that perfect balance between classy and sexy that I aspire to. She used these string lights from keke for her post and I thought that was so genius, I had to try it myself. I quite like the results and might do more pictures with these in the future.

New look for spring

newlook2

 

I didn’t plan it. I wasn’t looking for a new skin. But then skin fair happened. And Swallow happened. And I fell in love and couldn’t help myself. The Roberta skin is so gorgeous, soft, but mature. And when I saw the red lipstick you could buy for it, I was done. I had to have it.

I’ve been wearing my old lipstick every day since I got it in 2012. It’s become such a big part of my avatar, I’ve had a hard time letting it go. But now it finally happened, I found one I liked even more.

I know it’s not that big of a difference from before, but for someone who spends so much time looking at her own avatar, it’s like a whole new me.

Sisters

When I met Marja 8 (!) years ago, we worked for the same club. She was a DJ and I was a host. We had much the same type of humor and soon we’d find out we also had the same taste in fashion. I can not count the amount of times we’d accidentally show up wearing similar or even the same outfit.

We adopted each other as Sisters in both lives and I think it’s one of the best things that have ever happened to me. Nowadays we don’t dress alike as much, but every so often it happens and then it’s like being thrown back to 2007. Nostalgia at it’s best.

Boho like you

bohoarcade2

Sometimes it’s hard to decide which event to go to first. Do I go to Arcade and risk all my money disappearing? Or do I go to Uber first and… risk all my money disappearing? The only way I’ve found to not end up broke is to figure out a budget and stick to it, even if it kills you. So I didn’t get everything I would’ve liked from either place, but I got a good haul anyway.

Torley has been blowing up plurk about this three-eyed cat from Pixicat, so obviously I needed one of those. I also got the very cute wiener dog ring from Schadenfreude, first try and everything. The shirt and skirt combo is available at Uber, this month is Boho themed. You buy whichever skirt color you’d like and then you can change the color of the shirt, beads and belt via HUD. So lots of color combo’s in one item, which is always a big plus.

Now go forth and be broke!

Color of the Year: Marsala

marsala1

Every year Pantone selects a color of the year. This year it’s Marsala, which is a nice warm wine color with hints of purple. I’m very fond of this color, so I thought I’d do an outfit with a few pieces of Marsala colored things.

The skirt from Blueberry is a little bit shorter than I normally wear, but I love the color and the strap so much I had to get it anyway. Besides, with the new update of the Physique body, I had to show off my legs. You can get the new update by clicking Slink’s redelivery terminal at the mainstore. While you’re at it, get the new feet, hands and visage head too, if you have them.

The new hands and feet have the ability to apply nail polish on each individual nail, which mean you can do accent nails like I’ve done here. Or you can go full crazy and have a different nail color on each finger. Rainbow nails anyone?

Cotton Candy Feeling

I felt like doing something completely different today. I tossed my red hair and red lips and went for lavender instead. I very seldom take of my “signature” pieces, but sometimes you just have to let go.

The inspiration for this look comes from the gorgeous ombre shoes from Glamistry. Tomorrow is 21st which means it’s time for another round of 21Shoe. You get these lavender/pink shoes and a creme/bronze ombre for the price of one, tomorrow only.

Gallery Hop

galleryhop1

Today I went Gallery hopping at Purple Crayons. Several really talented SL photographers have showrooms there and the sim itself is quite suitable for photography. You’re allowed to rezz, which is very rare, but so appreciated. The return timer is 30 minutes, so ample time to get your pictures done.

I’m wearing more things from the depths of my inventory. Like this blazer from Erratic which I got a long time ago, but it’s so high quality, I frequently break it out for outfits. I paired it with some new shorts from Le Primitif, available now at Kustom 9. And the thing I got most excited about this week, Butch tanktops from Sn@tch is out now with appliers. It’s this weeks Sn@tch & Grab, so go get them while it’s cheap.
