So, yesterday I decided to try a relaxing adventure to World Goth Fair 2013. I had a few brands that I saw items from that I really wanted to check out. Wow. I really need to read blogs more carefully. For nearly 15 minutes I was trying to navigate Goth Fair using the wrong freakin map. I was so frustrated. Mind you, this is not anyone’s fault but my own. I was tired. I was zoned. I had spent 8 hours deciphering teen speak at work which can make the normal mind explode after 5 minutes. I mean WOW. I have never felt so stupid. But, I managed to figure out where I was and for what I was looking for which leads me to *drumroll* Half Deer’s release, the Necromancer headdress, Bilo’s dress and skin release, and Perception’s neck corset.
I’m kinda proud I was able to pull together a look after my debacle. I figured I would give up, but I did and I like it. If you know this blog, I don’t venture too much into Fantasy and such, so I tried my best to present my Goth look. Bilo’s new skin is fantastic, and helped me quite a bit. From as far as I can tell (not a skin expert), the shading just seems more complementary in this skin line, I love the lips, and there seems to be much more overall attention to detail. The skin itself just screams tempress, at least to me. There is also something so alluring about this face. I love getting a chance supporting skin makers who continuously try to improve their lines of skins for their audience. I have a few of Bilo’s previous skins, and I can say I approve of some of the changes and advances she has made as a skin maker.
Make sure to go over and check the World Goth Fair 2013 and check out these releases and others!

A reminder to everyone out there of two awesome events going on right now: Collabor88 and SL Fashion Week. At Collabor88, Glam Affair is slowly releasing different tones for their Margot line. I am featuring the Europa, and I love their skins, so no need to go down that path again. However, if you are looking for a lighter tone, or a darker one, for that matter, you should head down to Collabor88 and pick up two new skin tones for Margot: Europa and India.
I am also wearing a new release from Pure Poison at SL Fashion Week. The studded bra is all about the attitude, which I really don’t have, but I put on my drama face and gave you my best! Rawr! Welp. That was more of a soft purr…but I’m working on it.

I just wanted to show off my FaMESHed outfit. Heeeyyyya! Sorry, I have been doing RL work stuff, so I am a bit loopy. Also, my blog has also been infiltrated by evil little creatures who space things weird and make me angry faced, but I will see how this goes and hope it looks okay!
These two pieces are probably my fav FaMESHed pieces I have tried on so far. I adore the style of the Odette top by e!. The ruched/bloused waistline, the side knotted bow, and the floral prints (I talked about me and florals in my last post. Obsessed) really are flattering and unique. I want this in RL. I liked the jeans by Monso. They remind me of another brand that I like a lot, but they only had flare options, so these are a great skinny jean option.

I had a dream this past week. It was messed up. I dreamed that I was late for work, and I could not see the time on any clock. Every clock had the time blurred out. It sucked. The end.
On a brighter note, Has Been released some new items. I really love this dress. I have no clue if it was me, but I couldn’t get the alpha to work, so I used another alpha that matched up with this one, but the fit is flawless. [UPDATE: the creator contacted me inworld, offered a new version with alphas fixed within two days of me posting this blog! That is some great customer service!] I am addicted to florals, so my apologies if flowers make you sneeze and such. I just can’t get enough of flowers on this and flowers on that. Also, inadvertently I took this dress off at Truth Hair today, so I had my bits showing. If you were there, sorry! I would say I was embarrassed enough to leave, but I just put that dress right back on and kept on shopping. No way I was going to leave that store after it took me hours to get in! This is really just a regular day in the life of awkward Sophee.
Speaking of hair, Tram released new hair. I am excited because Tram always has cute short hairstyles which is my thing most definitely. Finally, I decided to glam up my spring outfit by pairing it with Glam Affair’s Janna Statement necklace for FaMESHed. Yes, it may be a tad bit much with the outfit because it is so elegant, but this is my blog and I wanted to. Pretty=pretty. That being said, I bet this would lovely with a formal gown!
I took this picture earlier in the week or was it last week…oh well, but it gives you a closer look at Botanical’s release at The Garden: Wooden Arbor with Ivy.

As I have told you previously, I am obsessed with everything home and garden, but at least I took one close up of myself, wearing the new Sasha skin from the Skinnery. I like it. It may not become my everyday skin, but I change skins often, so every skin I purchase becomes more of a canvas for whatever I am wearing. The Skinnery skin has such a cute little nose and mouth I couldn’t resist!
FaMESHed is having a one year birthday event. I stopped by briefly when it first opened and picked up the Truth Melody bustier in Vintage because OMG, he is making clothes! How can you not buy them!? The fit is amazing. The texturing amazing. The cute factor amazing. I also picked up Wasabi Pills adorable pigtails. Darling aren’t they? Yep. I also have this urge to buy all the home and garden accessories I can find! Garden domination! Muahhhahah. Cheeky Pea revealed their summer picnic set complete with picnic table, picnic food, grill, cooler, adult bevs, and flags string penant.
Many of my other garden picnic accessories come from The Garden, an event by The Liaison Collaborative. You still have one week to stop by and see all these beautiful items, including a set from Mudhoney which includes a garden bench, chairs, lamp, and drum table (not shown: Pergola and fan).

Well, this took forever. I dedicate this post to any blogger that regular puts together home and garden posts. I thought dressing myself was hard. This, well this takes so much time! Granted, I wanted to go through the process of making a potential real garden that I would actually use, so I started with a bare piece of land and turned it into this.
The main pieces in this post are from Fri. Home, Alouette, Pixel Mode, and Barnesworth Anubis. I have to say it was a pleasure to work with such wonderful garden pieces! I never ever ever wanna leave my garden spot. Thank you to The Liaison Collaborative for putting together such a fine event. I normally steer clear of home and garden stuff, but now I have garden fever forever.

“What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.” [often attributed to Emerson]
I’ve been trying my best to be RL world productive this week since I don’t have to work. It is amazing what I can accomplish when I get to move on my terms without a predetermined work schedule. I have done my normal flickr flips, looking at what I might like to purchase in SL, and this dress really just caught my eye. The dress, by Rebel Hope, is available at FaMESHed in a bunch of jewel tones and it is gorgeous, which I have come to expect from Rebel Hope creations. While you are at FaMESHed, you should check out Truth’s release, Tymber. I love updos!
