Back to Business

Shangri-La-3-18-2014

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.

Gorgeous Mesh Hair from Elikatira

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.

Accessories Make the Look – LOTD 1/7/2012

Today’s look is all about the accessories.  I started with a very basic outfit, using mesh pieces from Maitreya and celoe.  The fun starts with the accessories!  Brand new mesh shoes and clutch from Hucci forms the color palette of the outfit.  Necklaces from Zaara, earrings from Amorous, and a very funky hairstyle from new hair store Likeli completes this look.

52 Weeks of Color – Champagne

As many of you know, Luna Jubilee, started a 52 week of color challenge last year and each week bloggers were given a new color.  I think I got about 8 of the weeks and kept meaning to catch up and eventually decided there was no way I could pull it off.  Needless to say I was a happy girl when I saw that she was giving slackers like me another year to redeem themselves so without further holdup lets get this rolling.

Week One: Champagne

Shangri La Style 1-5-2012

Dress: Celoe – Group Gift
Hair: Elikatira – Collabor88
Skin: Dutch Touch
Jewelry: Amorous
Shoes: Lelutka

 

PS. I know this was probably my laziest blog post to date but I took this photo weeks ago and just now got to editing it up.  (Conveniently just in time for the new cycle of color challenges.)  Also, fair warning… my next post is going to be pretty lazy as well because that photo is from the same day I took this one so same situation. ❤

Back Grinding – LOTD 9/9/2011

After a break from blogging for awhile, I’m back!  I’ve been uninspired of late, but this new mesh dress from Hucci inspired me with the pretty blue hues.  I decided to pair the blue with purple and blue punches from my accessories.  I hope you love this look as much as I do!

Bah Humbug to Monday.. but yay for more MESH

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.

The Magic of Mesh <333

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!

In order to see mesh items properly you need to be on the latest LL released Beta viewer.  Viewer 3!  Don’t worry, it isn’t so bad! I promise you won’t melt or anything by logging on an LL viewer.  You can read more about mesh on the Second Life Blog http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld/Mesh-goes-gridwide-Create-sell-buy-amp-enjoy-all-new-things-in/ba-p/1055107
