I have missed blogging and I hope you’ve missed me too because as long as this urge lasts you’re stuck with me. Photography has almost always been a part of my SL and lately I have seen some really great pieces and I so desperately want to learn the techniques to make better images. Any tips or tutorial links in the comments are much appreciated.
Most of what I am wearing is from the current March 2014 “Back to Business” round of Collabor 88. Credits are available after the cut.
I’m really excited about mesh and this hair is one of the many reasons why I wish more people would update their viewers and embrace mesh. For a long time I’ve always really been irritated about how our side braids or even longer hairstyles were forever going through our shoulders. NO MORE!
Here’s just a quick rundown of the styling credits:
New skin for me and my new daily is from Filthy.
The eyes are my normal from Poetic Colors and the lashes are really the best I’ve found and can be found at FTL.
The gorgeous jewelry is from Amorous, if you haven’t been to this store you will not be disappointed.
This sweater dress can be found at Addict and really is a must have for the coming spring.
When Luna announced the color of coral I didn’t find anything coral in my inventory so I was left browsing the tons and tons of items on market. I pleasantly came across this skirt which I purchased. I hadn’t realized how long it was and when I put it on I knew the Coral pumps from Hucci that I had weren’t going to work so I went to find a shirt instead. I ended up coming across this cute top from The Sea Hole but with the shape of the neckline and style of shirt with the skirt it wasn’t working… paired with this white crop jacket though, it’s perfect. Then was the dilemma of shoes… at this point I’d already purchased the skirt and top so I was hoping to find boots in my inventory and I tried on a few pairs before it clicked. “I KNOW WHAT BOOTS!” I blurted out to my mom and co-blogger.
For Americans, Labor Day is a day to celebrate the economic and social contributions of workers. I don’t know much more about it except that when I was a kid it always meant a day off school which was awesome!
This blog post really came out of nowhere when I was texture shopping at Distressed, located on the Eternidad sim, and saw the adorable landscaping. As I looked out across the field I spotted this swingset and hopped on in exactly what I was wearing for a photo. Then I thought I may as well blog it since I had the photo and pretty cute look already done. Continue reading →
I’m going to ramble a bit and then get to the point. I tried going to sleep at a reasonable time last night and after laying in bed for 4 hours I gave up. Came on SL and surprise, I guess today was Christmas for me because I got these totally awesome new MESH MESH MESH dresses from JANE.
Please ignore the quality of this photo, that’s actually what the title of the post is about. Anything that could go wrong trying to take this photo did. I’m having the worse issues with my graphics and I don’t even know what to do anymore. OpenGL issue with a GTX 460 card. Anyone else having this problem or had that can help me troubleshoot that would be awesome.
Anyway, to the point… How totally cute are those boots? While I was digging through my inventory to find the right shoes I got the Lelutka notice for these new boots so I went over and grabbed them and my look was complete.
I was nervous about mesh, I’ll be honest. Tonight with the newest release from Janie Marlow, I’ve fallen in love with mesh. How incredible is it that we won’t have sculpts going through our little avi bodies anymore! I’m totally siked!
This look was inspired by the lovely jacket from d. Select that reminds me of one of my treasured possessions is an old quilted jacket. I was lucky to have known my great-grandparents, and even luckier to have two of my great-grandparents still alive and well into advanced age. Anyway, my great-grandmother, whom we lovely called Big Mamma, was a seamstress at times. She had this tradition that she handmade a quilt each time a grandchild got married. She passed away before I received my quilt. Continue reading →
I love dressing casually. I have the tendency to overdress for everything, but when I keep it simple the thrown on outfit becomes one of my favorites. The best thing about dressing casually? Not having to worry about support and smoothing garments.
I’ve been embracing my femininity of late through styling. I’ve been drawn to color pallets of soft pinks, muted green and healthy doses of beige. Of course, my bohemian roots always find a way to sneak into my styling. Continue reading →
