Quiet Quirk

October 19, 2009

sepia

I am the first to reach for my neon greens and fuschia when I am feeling particularly odd on any given day, but it is Monday.  I am feeling… quiet.  Sleepy.  And still a bit quirky.  So I pulled together this look entirely in shades of nude and white, inspired by the feeling of a Monday morning lull and the brilliant new stuff in my closet from Ohmai and Clawtooth.

The dress is Emma’s Ruffles, a utterly cute creation from Ohmai.  I think my favorite thing about shopping Ohmai, though, is looking through the names of the colors!  This is Nile Nudist.  Hee!  Doesn’t it just conjure up images of floating on Cleopatra’s barge in nothing but a black wig with a gold snake tiara?

Other than the name, of course, the silhouette is soooo yummy, and it comes as a dress (as shown here) and as a tunic top as well.  Squee!  I am a sucka for a twofa!

The other standout piece in this outfit is the 50 Linden special from Clawtooth this week.  A birdie made a nest on my head!!  I know, this has been around for a while, but I hadn’t seen it in this autumnal, soft color before, and I just love it.

A stunning necklace from ICON, some supercool tights from DARE, and a pair of unstoppably funky shoes from Miel all came together with the dress and err… hat.  I am ready to face Monday, in all its beigey dayness.

Hope you had a great weekend, and Happy Week!  🙂

Study Break

August 20, 2009

A couple of casual study looks today, pulled together from some new favorite pieces.  Some are new releases, some are just new to me, but all of them are ready for the library for a little studying, and then out for a couple of pitchers afterwards.  🙂

Outfit 1

OK, so a bare midriff may not be ideal for helping fellow students concentrate, but this new release from Decoy deserves a blank canvas!  It is an exquisitely detailed piece, and I love the cropped length, zipper action, and the nicely done prim sleeves.  The second highlight here for me is the messenger bag from Cherry.  This is total mod-fest!  You can choose the bag print, the leather color, and even choose the three pins on the flap.  Woot!  Fun for lots of moods and looks, and I love the messenger bag look, an oft-neglected bag type in SL.  I couldn’t resist the very-much-blogged Genius Peepers from Miel, either.  The tape on the bridge is so cute, and not overdone, and every single bit of this is color changeable, too.  The other new thing here is the Pink Fuel skin.  Sooooooo super sweet, with a fresh and rosy complexion and the most adorable freckles– squee!

Outfit 2

A little more color here, but just as comfy for pulling an all-nighter, no?  This whole look is based around a pair of pants I bought at Niniko a couple months ago, and for some reason have never blogged!  What a crime!  These are such an adorable mish mash of patterns, and the silhouette is simple and current, and it comes with a pretty great belt, too.  I used this opportunity to put on a new acquisition of mine, the super tight, short cardigan from Pig.  Gawwwd, I love Pig!  It looks so casually chic over this adorable Jellyfish tee from Duboo, a Designer’s United event piece.  The cutey-patootie hair from Ohmai makes me smile whenever I wear it, and I think it has met its soulmate in cuteness with these Miel flats.  How is it possible for pixels to look so comfy and squooshy??  LOVE!

So, study hard, drink lots of coffee, speed type the last six pages of your paper on your laptop, and at 2 am head out to the ‘Stend for a couple shots of tequila with the boys of Pi Kappa Alpha!

(Ohhh, can you sense my nostalgia for college creeping in?  I loved study breaks!)

Happy shopping!
