Travel to Tuscany

Vintage Fair is FINALLY OPEN! You can find a map and a list full of slurls over at the Chic Management website. Finally I can post slurls with my credits. You don’t know how much it bugs me when I can’t. It messes up my symmetry.

Status released a set of poses for Vintage Fair that comes with a travel bag. So naturally I had to find somewhere to travel, right? I found this lovely sim called Cap Estel that is made to look like the Tuscan countryside. Hills, meadows, livestock and poop on the roads. Yep. That’s a thing. Poop aside, it’s a gorgeous sim fit for photography.

I don’t know that I would travel in my thigh highs in real life, but this is SL and we do the weirdest shit here anyway… The boots are from HOC Industries and are color-change, which is always a plus. Not to mention that they are extremely affordable.

The cute little emerald outfit is from The Sea Hole and is an exclusive at Vintage Fair. Don’t ask me what era it is, all I know is that I look effing adorable in it.

This gorgeous hair from Chemistry is not from Vintage Fair, even though it looks like it could fit right in. I have never heard of Chemistry before I saw this hair at the Double Exposure blog, but I just had to have it. I’m going to keep my eyes open for more releases from this brand, can’t wait to see what they do next.

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.

Hair: Truth – Tamina

Lipstick: Pekka – Homicidal

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.
