I feel like a Rockstar

It’s coming up on the last few days of Pose Fair, so if you haven’t been yet, I suggest you grab your wallet and head on down now. When you do you can go check out Sweet Sacrifice and grab these Rockstar’ish poses I’m featuring in todays post. Most times I choose my poses after my outfit, but every now and then a pose makes me choose an outfit for it. Such was the case with these.

The posepack contains 5 singing poses and with the poses you get a microphone for both left and right hand. Just find a stage and you’re set to live out your Rockstar fantasies.

I didn’t have all that many Rockstar type clothes in my inventory, so it gave me an excellent excuse to go shopping. Again. I grabbed a really nice leather jacket with studs from Beetlebones and a sweet looking guitar necklace from NSD. But it didn’t feel quite complete without sunglasses. All rockstars wear sunglasses 24/7, everyone knows that. So these mesh glasses from Paris Metro Couture was the perfect finish.

52 Weeks of Color – #17 Shuttle Gray

Week 17 brings us Shuttle Gray. As much gray as I had in my inventory, none of it really spoke to me. So I did what any normal fashionista would do, I went shopping. This dress is from a new (to me) brand called Nyu. I’ll keep my eyes open in the future for new stuff from them, it seems like a brand just up my alley.

A beach vacation

This past week I haven’t really been feeling it. Whatever it is. I haven’t had much inspiration to blog. I’ve always felt that blogging should be something I do only for fun, so the solution was just to take a break. A bit of a vacation, if you will.

So I sent Veenya of to a tropical paradise and did some other things while she rested up.

Eventually a smidge of inspiration came back to me, so I took a few shots on the beach. This flowey maxi dress was a gift to Veenya from a friend and worked perfectly for her vacation. She spent most of her days strolling the beach, dipping her toes in the water. Her toes happen to be attached to these wonderful mesh bare feet from SLink. They look gorgeous, such a massive improvement from the system feet. SLink also has a manicure that match the colors of the pedicure on the feet, a brilliant move in my book.

52 Weeks of Color – #16 Bright Turquoise

Luna wrote on her blog that we have now officially finished the first 4 months of the challenge. Well color me surprised. Has it really been that long? I guess it has. Fantastic how quickly time passes.

Anyway, coldLogic recently released this jacket and matching capris that I’m wearing here and I found it perfect for this weeks color; Bright Turquoise. The fun pose in this picture is from Evolve and can be found at the Pose Fair.

Early Morning at the Pose Fair

The Pose Fair is right around the corner. Opening tomorrow with 120 stores spread over 2 sims. I went to the blogger preview this morning and let me tell you, it is huge. There are so many great stores and so many awesome exclusives I felt a bit dizzy walking around. Luckily Katey of Glitterati had some coffee set out, so I grabbed a cup and continued exploring.

The sims are built by Isla Gealach and features open spaces and these really cool gigantic sculptures. It was easily navigated and had a clean minimalistic feel to it. Over the next few weeks my posts will be featuring some of my favorites of the fair, incorporated in my posts. If you want some more information you can check out the official Pose Fair plurk account here or look at the pictures on Flickr here.

52 Weeks of Color – #15 Seashell Peach

Seashell Peach. Crike, I hate this color. Not that it isn’t pretty, it totally is. But I couldn’t find anything to wear. I went to (what felt like) 100′s of stores and none had the shade I was looking for.

Yesterday I was screaming profanities at a dress that, while being a perfectly nice dress, had done the sole evil deed of being white. At that point I had to step away and breathe.

After watching a few episodes of House and Criminal Minds I came back this morning invigorated. And this is what I finally came up with.

An Innocent Dance

Yesterday a friend took me out dancing. We dressed up in fancy clothing, searched out a fancy place and danced in the sunset. We talked about the disappointments in life and we joked about minotaurs and food. It was a nice evening in good company.

It was perfectly innocent. Really.

Wear Gray

Wear Gray have just opened it’s doors for you to shop ’till you drop. I went earlier and while my wallet cried a river, I skipped from shop to shop in a flurry of squee. There’s a lot of fun stuff to put in your shopping bags and it’s all for a great cause.

A two week market with creators from across the grid, new and old, banding together to help raise funds for the American Brain Tumor Association.

Wear Gray for a Day is the ‘brain child’ of Wear Gray Director Sanura Snowpaw. Sadly, Sanura lost her RL cousin to brain cancer and wanted to find a way to help raise funds to go towards researching to find a cure and to raise awareness of this disease. – Wear Gray Website

One of the first things I picked up at Wear Gray was this cute top from Somnia. It has a little ruffle around the chest with a cute little skull in a bow at the front. It set the tone for the rest of my outfit and I went nutbars with studs and skulls for my accessories.

The capris are also a find at Wear Gray, from Elymode. Elymode has really embraced the partial mesh thing, something I’m really happy about. The lower part of these pants are mesh to make a flare that bends with the knees, but the upper part is system clothing to maintain a sleek look.

52 Weeks of Color – #14 Royal Purple

It’s already Friday and I have waited this long to post this weeks color Royal Purple. That’s almost late. I had an outfit planned, I even shot and edited it. But then when I was going to post it Monday, it felt wrong. So I told myself I’d find something else. Then a few days went by and suddenly it was panic mode.

So I asked plurk and a few friends where I should go to find my purple. I ended up at the appropriately named Purple Moon. I hadn’t been there before, so naturally I went home with three outfits and a pair of earrings, not just purple. Then I had to run out of there, since my wallet threatened to commit harakiri.

Morning at Mayfair

I’m sure most of you know that Celoe and Mon Tissu banded together and opened a new sim called Mayfair. I dropped in a few weeks ago to browse the shops, but I didn’t explore the sim, there was simply too many people around. But this morning I went and had a proper look.

The entire sim is made in mesh and it is truly gorgeous. The textures really pop and the attention to detail is astounding. There’s even pennies in the fountain. Pennies that you can read the year of minting on. Hello?! (It’s 1967, btw.)

It makes for an excellent backdrop for photos, or just to roam around in, exploring the details. I really do recommend a visit, not only for shopping.

I picked up this dress from Maitreya at My Attic. super cheap and insane value for your money. It’s gorgeously textured as all Maitreya pieces and hugs your curves in all the right places. It’s classy and sexy all rolled in to one.

When I was at Mayfair the first time I picked up these pumps from Celoe. The attention to detail is like with the sim, remarkable. Most people won’t rezz the shoe as is, but even still Celoe has textured the inside with a lovely print. It’s an extra detail that makes people like me squee with delight.
