Hodgepodge of Style

August 26, 2009

I honestly can’t believe how much happens in a single day or two of SL time… I took the weekend off, and spent yesterday shopping to see all the things my group notices told me I missed! 🙂

One of those notices alerted me to a new sugarcube store in Hodgepodge.  Yayy!  So I started at sugarcube and spent a lovely couple of hours scouring the whole Hodgepodge shopping sim.  In the end, I threw these outfits together based on the inspiration from alllll the great stuff I found.

The hair here is from bffae, a new store that has some very very cute styles!  Here, I have used their Doll Babe, featuring a lovely bun on the top, and Retro Girl, a nice shag with seriously great bangs.  I am looking forward to seeing more from these guys!

The red dress is from Karamia, and I could not resist the bubbleskirt or the flouncy big sleeves.  It just looks like it would be soooo comfortable as well as chic!  The stripes are a lovely texture, with subtle shading up and down the dress.  I used the big, open neckline to spotlight another find from a store in Hodgepodge: Addict‘s appropriately named Doll Necklace.  That store makes me smile, with all the clever and unique accessories!

The second outfit is almost entirely thanks to sugarcube.  Ahhhhh, sugarcube, what have I done to deserve you??  🙂  Yayyyyy a thousand times to this jacket and ruffled shirt, actually found at the Black Market sim, not Hodgepodge.  I can’t say anything about them that you can’t see for yourself, so I will let them express their own utter awesomeness.  The skirt *is* one I picked up at the Hodgepodge sugarcube store, and the bubble and waist are simply lovely– so versatile, I am not ashamed to say I bought all four colors!

To accent the sugarcube outfit with a bit of color, I surrendered to splurging on shoes at Periquita.  I was so delighted by the way these styles effortlessly walk the line between uniquely creative and simple and wearable.  Really outstanding!  To top it off, the shoes have a HUD that lets you customize each pair in many ways: sole, straps, texture, size, etc.  Wow!  All that, and I felt like I was really getting a bargain, in the end…

And finally, I brought out two new skins from KA Designs, from the new Glow collection.  They really live up to the name– truly luminous and subtle.  I especially like the detail on the Charlize face, with the small beauty marks on the pale skin.  Lovely!

That’s it for now… happy shopping, and see you soon!

Procrastinators Alert: Skipping Stones Hunt

August 23, 2009

Yes, the Skipping Stones Hunt has been going on for almost two weeks now, and I have just gotten around to doing it.  *sigh*  Hey, I can’t be too disappointed, though, because it doesn’t matter WHEN you do it, what matters is– do you like your new loot?!?

The short answer is YES YES YES!  There are some super-fantastic cute things on this hunt, and I did find stores I had never heard of before that I really liked.  What a great side benefit to hunting– new shopping places!  Yayyy!

For those who have been under a rock (or on vacation) for the last two weeks, the hunt highlights the best bohemian and alternative stores in SL, and has been running since August 10.  The last day of the hunt is August 24, which is… tomorrow!  So if you are a procrastinator like me, you better get your hustle on and start looking for rocks.

There is toooooo much in the 60+ stores to spotlight everything, but I did notice a lot of bikinis in my swag… so here is a look at the swimsuits of the hunt, paired with some hunted skin and hair as well.  Everything is free, of course, it just takes a little time to find each hidden stone.  (If you are interested in speeding up your time, try these official hints.)

Have fun, and when you are ready, START HERE.  Good luck!  ❤
