I thought it was a beautiful day to go strolling in Moonlight Tea, so much I used my U.F.O camera to take some pics of the place!  As for some new releases across the grid, Glam Affair released Rose, another beautiful skin release.  What is different about the Rose package? Eyebrows!  Glam Affair listens to their customer base and has released several different styles of eyebrows to change up your look. So many people have their own favorite, so I found this to be such a wise decision on Glam Affair’s part.  The makeup in the entire package has dramatic to casual, so you can switch up your look easily, and clean versions (without makeup) are also included.  You should also take a stroll at Okinawa Summer Festival.  I noticed that some items have been released before, but there is also tons of new and interesting items and most places also included some gatchas as well. I also saw some new to me brands that I will be keeping an eye in the future.  I picked up my dress, shoes (gatcha), and camera (gatcha) all at this festival.

Pose: Focus Poses-Model-66-3

Hmmm. House of Fox. The brand is hosting a blogger search for those interested.  I have been eagerly awaiting House of Fox mesh for some time, and I have enjoyed seeing the brand transform into mesh–it is hard to keep your store’s style and image, but create inside such a limited box.  That is a nod to the uniqueness of the brand.   It mixes a bit of urban with couture to give you an item unique, fresh, and trend-setting.   When I saw them put up a flickr search for new bloggers, I will admit that I wanted to be on it.  The style of Fashionboi Landar’s clothing appeals to my alter ego, embodying the strength of a woman, but also highlighting femininity.  This paradox shows in many items they sell: bold, but soft and structured, but girly.   You can look at any item and see that time and thought goes into a design.  The passion they have for creating clothing is evident.

However, I decided just to do a picture.   I love these types of contests not for what I can get out of it, but because I get a challenge.   I don’t blog nearly enough to be put on a list of any sorts. I have loved House of Fox since I found them. They have been a brand I turned to when I have lost inspiration to blog, and I am so scared to force myself to blog an item for my audience.  Force is hard, but force will be understood by bloggers.  It is that moment where you take a photograph just to meet a requirement rather than letting it just happen or unfold.  I struggle with creativity.  Whatever I put out, I cringe when I hit publish because I wonder what my audience will think, so yes, signing a contract, of sorts, does cause me pause.  Maybe that is too opinionated for people, but I sometimes just have to check myself.  Why am I doing this?  For me, I get to challenge and express myself in ways I never thought before.  I like that.  I need any store I blog for to understand this too.  I guess this type of  contest is too impersonal for me. Does this mean I will never? No.  I wish my life was so black and white.

Many items in SL give me pause, and this is just one of many.  My thoughts are always moving forward, so if you have an opinion leave it in the comments.  I struggle with the concept a lot because of the lack of commitment I can give anyone, and I want to do my best.   Oh gosh….that last remark is just so telling of my personality.  Do you like these contests? How do you balance it all?  Why do you blog?

As always,

Did I need another pencil skirt?  No.  Did I want this one? Yes.  While at FaMESHed, I peered upon this NYU sapphire skirt from a distance.  It was love.  I was bashful, not sure if I was ready to commit to another pencil skirt, so I brought a demo home to try out.  I looked in my mirror at the lines of the skirt hugging my body and of the black belt with a bow sitting at my waist.   Nobody could keep us apart.  …and we lived happily ever after.

I needed a yellow blouse to complement my sapphire beauty, so I stumbled upon this beautiful creation.  This top by Molichino is stunning.  It is offered in dots and a plain version, as well as a tugged in version (seen here) and a blouse addition with bow (not pictured).  Talk about versatile.   The blouse is also backless- adorable.   I am not sure how I missed this or when it came out, but I am glad I crossed paths with it!

Moving Forward: Lemon Chiffon for Luna’s 52 Weeks of Color.

Lemon Chiffon doesn’t sound very tough. BUT. When you add a killer hair style, stunning jewelry, and some dark sunglasses, it can be!  I am reallllly loving the jewelry from Handverk.   If you haven’t stopped by their main store, go check them out!  I love that ring!   Wasabi Pills put out a short hairstyle.  I love short hair.  I believe someone said longer hair sells better, so I know when short hair comes out to relish in it.
