Calling for Spring

springstroll

Winter. I’m over it. Yes, already. I want spring now. I want bright dresses and high heels (without the added risk of falling on ice). Floral jewelry and thin jackets. Someone get on that for me now, please?

Paris got me like…

pariscity

I found this amazing looking place the other day thanks to the travel blog Bitacora Viajera. I highly recommend checking that blog out. Not only do they have phenomenal scenery photos (much better than mine) but they also provide info about whether or not you can rez or use script on the sim. (This one is Rez, but no scripts.) Perfect for photographers and bloggers.

The place is called Paris Je T’aime and is actually home to a few stores. But they’ve made this incredible space for us to enjoy in between shopping. So obviously I had to take some photos.

I’ll admit, I have been living in this outfit the last few days. There’s something about it that just makes me feel both comfortable and sexy. That’s rare. It’s either one or the other. For this outfit I went full Blueberry and I’m not even sorry. All of their stuff is so well made, affordable and fits like a damn glove. I LOVE the collaborations they do, this time with Reign to bring us thigh highs that work with pants. YAS!

I also picked up a new skin from Deetalez. Her head appliers are amazing, so expressive and sophisticated. I opted to take off my red lipstick for this shoot though. Shocker, I know. I’m thinking 2016 might be the year I venture out in new lip colors. Hold my hand?

Clean Slate

veegrey

New Year, New beginnings, clean slate. So for my first post of the year, I thought it be fitting I wore slate grey. (See what I did there?) A couple of days ago my blog turned four years old. Yay me! I was going to post something for that, but as I was prepping for the hosting of a New Years Eve party, it just wasn’t happening. Pesky RL getting in the way.

I got myself a new mesh head for the new year. Limited edition Simone from LeLutka. It’s got a bit of a sharper look that I really like and it felt a lot more “me” than the one I had before. I do also like the new expressions it comes with, it’s fun to play with for photos.

I picked up the lovely grey dress at this round of Uber. A brand called Tetra that I have never bought anything from before, but given how much I like this dress, I think it’s safe to say I’ve found a new store. It comes with and without the belt, but I liked the luxurious look of the gold against the gray, so I decided to go full out with some gold accessories from Luxe and a pair of grey heels from Glamistry. A pretty fabulous party outfit if I may say so myself.

Goji

Not to long ago a new store hit the grid. A kawaii looking new brand called Goji. Goji is the brainchild of Janie Marlowe and Damien Fate, previously involved in a lot of other excellent brands around the grid. Goji seems to aim towards a sweeter look, with a lot of pretty dresses and detailed separates. They have standard sizes as well as wide range of sizes fitting the most popular mesh bodies. I asked a few of my friends with different bodies to model some things for me. Apparently I know a lot of redheads.

Casually Purple

Recently I moved in to a new house, which meant I needed some new furnishings because, hello, can’t do with the old stuff you already have and you obviously need to inspire your wallet to commit seppuku this close to Christmas… Anyway. I realized then that I tend to decorate a lot in purple. Like. All the time. Purple. And this time was no different. So I embraced it and matched it with a casual outfit and there we go. Casually Purple.

Lounging

I was attending an event that called for sleepwear and so I picked up this little number off the marketplace. I like going there searching for things, because I often run in to stores I haven’t seen in-world, so it expands my shopping world a bit. And that can never hurt. The negligee comes with appliers for stockings and panties that match, so a full lounging set in one.

To top off this look I wanted a classy pair of heels, something to complement, but not take over. So the new pair from Glamistry, called Begonia,  worked perfectly. I know I always rave about the HUD for these shoes, but it truly is amazing. It’s one of those products that is absolutely worth the price of a fatpack, because you can match together colors to make your own unique shoe.

I thought I’d give an idea of the possibilities with this HUD, so I snapped a few pics of some different setups. Every aspect of the shoe can be individually colored and you can buy new colors directly in the HUD. Super easy and quick.

A Neglected Blog and Winter Comings

It’s true. I’ve been a bad blogger lately. Completely ignoring my blog for way too long. I’m not going to apologize to you though, I’m not conceited enough to think y’all are sitting on pins and needles waiting for me to post. I’ll apologize to the blog. Sorry blog. I promise to do better. Ish.

Anyway, while I was gone, my beloved fall fell in to winter and so did the fashion. I picked up these gorgeous skates at Kustom 9. They’re from N-core and come with both ice skates and roller skates, changeable via HUD. You also get a basic skating AO as well as a HUD with a few skating animations. Super fun!

A fall feature

crestwick1

Don’t freak out. It’s still me. I’m just trying out a mesh head. I’ve been putting it off because I wanted to find something that still looked like “me”. So when Swallow released one of her skins for the LeLutka heads, I had to give it a go. I’m still not entirely sure I like it. I mean, it’ pretty and it makes photoshopping SO much easier, but is it me? I don’t know. Let me know what you think.

I went for another fall inspired look. Surprise, eh? This time with some great pieces from Neve. I matched with some stockings, because *brr* and a great pair of platform Mary Janes from Glamistry. If I had the guts to wear skirt this short in RL, I’d don this type of outfit all the time.

A peek from behind

asphyx1

I had to do it. A butt shot. I had to. I mean look at these pants. Look at the butt. Come on. LOOK AT IT.

Sorry, just. It’s so beautiful. Perfected. The pants are called Rene and is from Blueberry. They were released a while ago and it’s the pants I wore in this shot, I just felt that I had to show you what the looked like from behind.

I also wanted to show you these incredibly dangerous looking heels from Glamistry. They’re called Freesia and as always with Glamistry shoes, you can customize each part of the shoes via HUD and there’s a great range of color to chose from. I went for an all black this time, to accentuate the awesome butt-pants. Thee shoes look like they could kill. I love that. Literal killer heels.

ECLIPSE Magazine

A while back I was approached by Cajsa Lilliehook to participate in ECLIPSE Magazine’s “Voices from the Grid.” Every month, a few residents get asked a question and get to write their take on that subject. This month the question is “How real is Second Life?” You can read mine and others answers in the October issue of ECLIPSE Magazine.

For this article I was also asked to include a picture. I took many version until I settled for this one. I’m very happy with the end result and think it looks really good in the magazine. What do you think?
