Not much to say today.  Nothing too new on my back, either, just playing around in my bursting-full inventory.

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!  🙂

Date Night

August 28, 2009

It’s Friday, and that means date night!  Yayyy!  Well, it is a bittersweet date night for me tonight, actually, since tomorrow morning I’m leaving my sweetie here in Portugal for two weeks, to visit with my family in the States and get all the final preparations together for our wedding day there.  I guess that deserves another YAY!  But I wish we didn’t have to be apart until just four days before the wedding… no more dates until the honeymoon!

So, you have caught me in a pretty mushy mood today, and my post is an outfit appropriate for a last date before the big day.  We met and started our relationship in SL, so this is a little tribute to him, my wonderful guy and almost hubby…

*mush mush mush*

Enough of that!  Now I have to go find a dress for the RL date.  Hmmm… I think chances are slim I will find anything as wonderful and sexy as this bijou gold dress, but– a girl’s gotta try!  🙂

I’ll be back and posting in just a couple of days– until then, happy shopping, and happy date night for you and your own loved one!!

Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Black Market

August 25, 2009

Jump Ship

The Black Market is a brand new shopping area, and it.  Is.  Impressive.  SQUEE!!

It is not the usual mall set up, either by design or by function.  The “olde-pirate-o’-fashion” scene it creates is super fun, and the shop stalls are a maze of small rooms around a tiny central cove.  Quality designers from different genres in SL are setting up stalls to share their sales and exclusives.   That’s right– a place to shop some of the most creative, cool designers in SL that is devoted to sales and exclusives!  Hee!

Sales and discounted items from each designer will be rotated regularly in 2-3 week intervals, which of course gives shopping addicts a reason to go back again and again, despite the relatively small size of each shop.  My favorite part, I think, was the small collection of dinghies in the middle of the cove, with all the free stuff in them!  A clever idea, and a central area for anyone who just wants the free and 1L items.  Yayyyyy.

I, of course, could not resist a full tour and dropping more than a few Lindens, so here are some of my fave new pieces:

(lots of booty pics… errr, PIRATE booty… with slurls after the jump.)

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!

Errand Girl

August 18, 2009

Just a casual look for today, inspired by my endless list of errands at the moment.  When a huge list of run-here-do-that presents itself on a nice summer day which would be better spent at the beach, I can tend to get a bit cranky.  The only antidote, really, is to be sure that I procrastinate the errands as much as possible by choosing a cool outfit I will enjoy wearing.  Hence– today’s look.  I wish I had this ensemble in a RL version, for sure!

huh

The top is a great tee I picked up at Pink, and it is really fun!  The pink and green color combo drew me in immediately. And did you get a good look at the design?  *sigh*

I paired it with a skirt that is actually part of a dress, and part of a FREE dress I got from Elate through the DSN group.  It is a great dress, but the part I really fell in love with was this skirt.  It is high waisted, which… SQUEE.  The layers are lovely.  And… (look!  look below!)

step

There is a mini bustle going on in the back!  How cute is that?  (Answer… impossibly cute.)

I also decided to bring out a favorite new bag of mine, from Gbberish.  This is such a cool texture, and it is fashioned like some sort of kerchief that is folded expertly… the kind that you could put on a long stick and carry on your shoulder if you were a hobo.  Cool, right?

I treated myself to some new hair, too, and this is from lamb.  I heart lamb!  The color is so sassy, fulfilling my urge for carroty redness in a still-wearable color.  Like, hyper Irish.  And the smooth, lush texture.  Mmmmm. Put that together with my beloved Miel Jane shoes and some ruffly socks, because… well, comfort doesn’t have to be ugly!

skin detail

Speaking of ugly– or not… I am also trying out my newest skin splurge, from My Ugly Dorothy.  The detail is uniquely lovely: the slightly chapped lips are executed so perfectly, the little beauty mark on the lip… yay!  I think the best part is that I can wear this skin when I do not want to look like I had 4 hours to do my makeup, when I just want to look like a girl who rolled out of bed, had a bowl of cereal, and is now on her way to the dry cleaners.  It is beautiful in the most raw way.   (Well, as raw as a gorgeous, glowing complexion can look.  :))

OK… in case you hadn’t guessed, this post was MY way of procrastinating a few errands.  Time to face RL, the supermarket, the drug store, the post office, and the DMV.  Must… motivate…

In the meantime– happy shopping!!
