Portia Skirt


Today, I am featuring an item from Shiny Shabby by Azuchi.  The skirt is available in two fitmesh versions–one has a bit larger waist which could be layered over other items nicely.  The skirt is also materials enabled. To see materials on this skirt, which will make it look more realistic and add high levels of detail, you only need to put your graphics up to mid, make sure advanced lighting and local lights are turned on.  You DO NOT need to push your graphics all the way up to ultra to see materials.  You do not even need your shadows on for that matter.  The skirt comes in beautiful red, black, brown, and purple leather with realistic folds and a detailed belt.

You can also pick up my ice cream cone from Collabor88 by Imeka.  She makes adorable things, and they sure do come in handy for a blogpost as well.  My eyes are made by Song and are called Bio. You can find these stunning eyes at Kustom 9.

Happy shopping!

Memory Bliss


Every once in awhile I make a purchase strictly because it sets me back into to my past.  The piece that totally did that this time is Lenox’s 1991 dress available at FaMESHed this month.  You would think I owned such a dress, but honestly, I had my nose buried in books as a child, but my sister, the stylish one, most definitely did.  I remember sneaking into her closet as a middle schooler and playing dress up.   Yes, I was that annoying little sister who hanged on every word my sister said and mimicked her every move.  Really,  she played cool very well.  I wished so much that I could pretend so well I made it real.  I didn’t.  Maybe it was because I tried real hard…really hard to make fairies and huge castles in the sky happen, but that is beside the point.   I was in awe, at the time, of the image she was able to create.  Fifteen years later, I often get to chat with my sister about the past.  She talks of being insecure, of not knowing who she was, of second guessing every move.  I always thought the opposite. Shows you that no matter how close you are (we shared the same bedroom), reality is really just perception.   Smoke and mirrors.
