Oldie Diner Flick

December 10, 2009

Just a little faux movie fun today, and a few new fave items of mine.  Think 50’s technicolor movie meets hipster girl looking for some breakfast?

First off, the would-be heroine is wearing a fantastic dress from Slow Kitchen.  I know– is there any other kind?  🙂  I particularly love the bright purple plaid of this one, which is the inspiration for the super-colored photos here.  So warm and wintery, but so bright and cute.  New boots from Gbberish add another level of brightness, with a furry texture and animal print, and the fit of a pair of favorite galoshes.  Loooove them!  Finally, to cover up the legs against the cold, I slipped on a pair of socks I picked up from one of Narwhal‘s newest outfits.  Alone or together, these outfit pieces can’t help but be squee.  It’s true.

Topping things off, quite literally– one of Maitreya‘s four new hairstyles.  This one is Alex, and the thick bangs are super cute, especially with Maitreya’s typically masterful soft texture.  Not too severe, but not too boring, you know?

Now… if only I had a MOVIE SCRIPT.  Or a director.  Yeah.  That would help.

Down Through the Chimney with Good St. Nick

December 9, 2009

OK, this may have to be my favorite Christmas carol now.  The Down the Chimney Hunt was not only a good bit of fun, I can’t BELIEVE the amount of quality loot on offer.  What a happy holiday surprise!  Thanks to all the designers who generously participated… and also, thanks to the organizers for getting so many different stores involved.  I shop a lot in SL, but it never ceases to happen that every hunt shows me a dozen or more stores I just never knew existed– and which I will be going back to again and again, natch.  The gift that keeps on giving, eh?

In the meantime, I have finally unwrapped all the spanking new prezzies the hunt gave me and managed to pull together a few outfits to spotlight some of my favorite new pieces.  Heeeeere we go!

Hot and Hawter

August 13, 2009

I know it has been a while since I posted, and I don’t even have vacation as an excuse!  Actually, what I have is the ANTI-vacation excuse.  I’ve been stuck working and doing all the daily things that make life… you know… life, and it has been TOOOOO hot around here!  Like, melt your mama hot.

Well, one good thing has come out of this heat wave: it gave me an idea for the post.  Why is it that even though I know darn well my av cannot feel the temperature, I still feel a need to dress her to match MY temperature?  Strange thing, that.  But, in this case, good, because it gives me an excuse to show off a couple of my favoritey favorite new pieces, which are madly appropriate for when it gets crankypants hot outside.

The first outfit is a casual romper from the new and deservedly popular Narwhal.  The green is super fun, and it has a great detail in texture and fit.  And, it couldn’t be more perfect for a hot day of running errands.  I paired it with two tanks, in yellow and pink, from Ohmai‘s collection, and my absolute favorite belt from Reek.  It changes texture, and what textures!  Gumby, Mario Brothers, Star Wars… the fit is great, too.  To top it off, I slipped into my creamshop flip flops.  LOVE!  SQUEE!  They are soooo cute, and the skin is truly easy to match, with little painted toes peeping out.  I put these on, then wore them to go out and buy a few more colors.  🙂

The second outfit is slightly more refined, but equally breezy and cool.  The Haver tiered frock from Whippet and Buck is stylish with the color blocking, and the tiers!  They attach at three different points, for total flexibility and a perfect fit, no matter what your proportions.  The shoes from Maitreya are in heavy rotation for me, and I can’t get over the awesome bows around the ankle.  Total, complete cuteness.

I love my hair, but lord, I can’t stand to have it on my neck when it is hot out!  So neither can my av, apparently… the pigtails are courtesy of W&Y, and the frantic spikiness of the “tails” makes me grin.  With all this color, I had to break out a skin from Curio, the Tulip makeup in the April skin.  Flushed cheeks seem appropriate, no?  I tried a more polished route with the dress, pairing the Allison updo from the brand new fri.day with a great new(ish) skin from Atomic.  The nude colors really show off the tan sheen on the skin, I think.

And… that’s it for now!  It’s time for my afternoon popsicle.  See you soon… stay cool!
