Walk with me

Apparently it’s the beginning of the End of The World. Plurk and Flickr broke. Plurkers and Flickerites all over the globe joined together in a earbending “NOOOOO!”. A sound which probably caused a few ruptured eardrums. This is how it begins, people. So, what to do when the world is ending? Well, I took a walk. Tried to breathe. And snapped some pictures.

A similar event happened yesterday. Only more on the positive scale of things. Hordes of Fashionstas joined in a earth-shattering stampede as coldLogic released their brand new goodies. I’m sure you felt the earth move.

This time around coldLogic have released a series of pants and shirts/blouses to mix and match as you please. The quality is as always, outstanding. I especially liked these pinstriped pants as they look an awful lot like my RL favorite pants. Actually, this entire get up looks a lot like what I’d wear IRL. And take a look at that ass in these pants. Superb.

Last Days of Winter

We’re coming towards the last days of February and (at least in my neck of the woods) the last days of Winter. I can’t tell you how ready I am for spring. I need some sun and warmth in my life. So this is my Goodbye post to Winter. Go on now, get out of here. And don’t come back until December, please and thank you.

Thsi soft and warm looking dress is a Group Gift over at Tres Beau. I really like that full length skirt of it and the cowl that comes with. The group is free to join and the dress can be picked up at the mainstore. The earrings I’m wearing is a hunt gift from Chop Zuey. It’s from the Jill path of the Jack or Jill hunt, which ends the 29th of February. They are really an intricate piece of art, so I suggest you go and pick them up before you forget.

Rich Cream

Today is Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Tuesday, depending on where you’re from. It’s the day of stuffing your piehole with… well, pie, if you want. Or pancakes. Or pastries. Generally anything fattening starting with P seems to be a good call. I intend to bake myself a chocolate cake and then drown it in cream. Not specifically because of the day, but because I feel like it. That’s how I roll.

Speaking of cream (I own at segues) it happens to be the color of this sexy number I’m wearing today. It’s the latest release from Alice Project and is available at Festival of Sin in 4 colors. It’s actually a dress, but as you can see here, it can also work as a top. The texturing is really rich and lustrous and the plunging neckline is just the right kind of revealing. It comes in 5 different sizes for your convenience.

52 Weeks of Color – #8 Dark Raspberry

This weeks color Dark Raspberry seemed easy enough at first. But looking through the different submission on Flickr, I realize that we all seem to see this color differently. I see it as a sort of lighter shade of red wine. Some seem to see it as a dark purple. Some might say that those two things are the same. I can’t tell if this is my red/pink blindness acting up, but it is interesting. Go have a look at Flickr.

Screw it, it’s Sunday

After that somewhat traumatic exploration of my darker side, I decided to spend the weekend in sweats. Chowing down take-out and watching people make fools out of themselves on national TV. But that gets boring fast, so even though it is Sunday, I’m going to take my heels out for a spin tonight.

R.icielli is a great place to find affordable goodies right now. They have a valentines hunt still going on, were you can pick up a bunch of stuff for only 15L a piece. I grabbed this gorgeous little bandage dress and matched it with a bag and shoes I found in their accessories department on sale.

Zomething Out of the Ordinary

The other day a challenge was posted on plurk by Adorkable Peapod. The challenge was to do something out of the norm, out of your comfort zone. Sounded like a fun idea to me, but it took me a while to decide on what to post. Normally I do what I call “Sexy Classy” outfits, so what would be the opposite then? Fugly Trashy? Euw. No, I went with something a little bit different.

Fashionably Dead. Yep, that’s me. I went and gored myself out. This idea, of course, came from watching The Walking Dead yesterday. If you haven’t checked that series out yet, you really should. Of course their zombies are bit more decomposed compared to me. But this is still a fashion blog, can’t be running around in rags, can I? Just pretend I’m freshly hatched.

All that blood and flesh you see comes from Repulse, which seems to be somewhat of a gore headquarters in SL. There were so many different types of yuck, I hardly knew where to turn. It’s all very well made, too. Perfect place to accessorize if you’re a Bloody Fashionista, like me. The very glamorous necklace is something I picked up on the marketplace, I mean I couldn’t possibly go without jewelry.

Don’t Wait Up

Veenya is a single girl. She intends to stay a single girl, she’s quite happy with it. So V-day is neither here nor there for her. Sometimes she buys some chocolates for a friend, sometimes she gets a flower from an admirer and she always makes sure to call her Mother.

Others are not as fortunate, so when Veenya gets a call from a distraught girlfriend, she knows just what to do. “Put on your dancing shoes, I’ll be there in five.”

This fantastic little party dress is from Gizza and is a part of the Womenstuff hunt. Look for a little red shirt to get it for free. The brown belt called for some accessories matching and so I went on a quest to find the perfect clutch. This one from Izzie’s is almost perfect but didn’t quite have the right color. Thanksfully it was mod, so I applied a subtle tint to it to make it just right.

52 Weeks of Color – #7 Folly

Oh Folly. I think my eyes are bit blind to the pink to red scale. Or at least confused. When I look at the color swatch one way it looks like a deep pink. I turn my head and it looks like a stark red. So I’m not entirely sure I nailed this. But I will post it anyway, because I look cute. So there. You can pick up both the dress, shoes and the pose in the Womenstuff Hunt. Look for the little red shirt.

Going Places

As you’ve noticed I have a thing for so called on-location photography. When I wander around to find these places I run in to a lot of random things and people and it’s given my Second Life a whole new aspect. But sometimes you’re stuck. You just can’t find the right place. Luckily there’s help for that.

Second Sites is a tumblr that showcases different places that you can go to shoot or just explore. It welcomes resident submissions, so there’s places from all walks of SLife. There’s information about things as rezz rights and the eventuality of RP, so you know a little about what to expect. If you have a place you think suits for photography, you should really go and submit.

I shot this picture at The Looking Glass and while I was at it I shot the one above it to submit to Second Sites. It took an extra minute or two to submit, very easy and fast. I’m thinking about doing this for all of my locations in the future.

The café in combination with the brightly colored accessories made me feel like it was spring, even though it’s still quite far away. The beauty of Second Life, it can be any season you’d like.
