52 Weeks of Color – #43 Ghost White

I’m back! I’M BACK! YAY! I finally got this mess of a computer sorted out. That was some long 12 days, let me tell you. If I hadn’t just gotten a brand new tablet I don’t think I would’ve made it.

I have some work to do now if I want to make this 52 colors challenge before the end of the year. So let’s get to it, shall we? Ghost White was week 43 and is… Well, white. So I got this cute looking blouse in the With Love From Hunt, it’s from DCNY. It costs only 10L and you get several colors with it. I spiced up a little bit with a belt from coldLogic that is actually meant for their Gish dress. But no one said you have to do everything by the book, right?

Ugh

I was on such a roll with my blogging. And then that thing happened that isn’t allowed to happen. My computer stopped working. I’m trying to get it to come back to the living, but it will take a while. I miss you guys, hope to see you real soon.

  

52 Weeks of Color – #42 Cosmic

Still working on the colors. Week 42 gave us Cosmic, a dark purple I’m really fond of. This is the kind of purple I’d be wearing IRL (and often do). I found a almost perfect colormatch in this dress from Sn@tch. It is one of many hunt gifts in the With Love From Hunt that is going on right now. In fact the necklace, ring and pose is also in the hunt. There’s a lot of fab things to get for only 10L a pop, so make sure you hunt your way through this one.

Can I Have Your Number?

I finally bought myself a new phone last night, so this has been me pretty much all day today. When you get a new phone there’s always that period of “teaching” it how to do stuff your way. So I’ve been downloading apps and entering phone numbers and all that stuff. I can’t tell you how good it feels to finally be connected again after a month without a proper phone.

It’s only fitting then that this set of poses from aDORKable Poses is in this years With Love From Hunt. This set contains 10 poses with mirrors and phone included. The hunt starts the 30th of November and each hunt item costs 10L. For those 10L you get a value of at least 400L, so it’s a great deal.

52 Weeks of Color – #41 Antique Brass

Working hard on catching up on the colors. Week 42 brought us Antique Brass a subtle color I really like. A little bit towards the nude way but still retaining some brown. I found a Tee from coldLogic I thought worked perfectly with this color.

Pose Appreciation Week – Exposeur

Round two of Pose Appreciation Week is one of my all time favorites, one who’s been taking up a huge portion of my inventory for a long time. Exposeur by RubyStarlight Writer. I have an obscene amount of singles poses from this store, a go-to for my fashion posts.

Her poses always seem to be so natural and fit my avatar perfectly almost every time. It’s like they are made especially for my avatar.

But she does more than single poses. Whenever I find myself needing a pose for more than one avatar, I always seem to find myself at exposure first and I rarely leave empty-handed. The couple and group poses are expressive and sometimes even naughty (aka Indecent exposeur).

Week 40 was Amaranth, a reddish kind of pink. I went a little bit darker than the swatch, but I couldn’t resist with this great dress from coldLogic calling to me from my inventory.

Pose Appreciation Week – aDORKable Poses

I love poser-makers. I spend a healthy chunk of my budget on just poses, but it’s a great investment if you think about how awful the pictures would be without them. I almost always credit the poses I use, the few times I don’t it’s because I’ve forgotten. I thought I’d take this Pose Appreciation Week to highlight some of my absolute favorite pose makers, the ones I keep going back to over and over again.

aDORKable Poses by aDORKable Peapod is one of those brands that have been with me for years and still continue to amaze me. She has a wide range of poses and props for a plethora of different purposes, but my favorite part is her fashion forward single poses. I know that if I TP in to her store to find that perfect pose to show of my outfit, I will always find something.

(Mostly) Settled in

I’m finally starting to get settled in in my new apartment here in the States. I still don’t have a desk, but I do have proper Internet now, so yay, I can run SL and blog! I put together this outfit from with a few pieces that just felt like they needed to be together.

I really like how the jeans from the Secret Store fitted perfectly with these ankle boots from Gos. It’s usually so hard to find boots to go wit mesh pants but this was just a great fit.

The stunning jewelery I have on is not yet released from Cae, but coming soon in a location near you. I’m so excited for this brand, I’m practically jumping in my chair. Definitely something worth keeping an eye out for.
