Port Hope

So much is happening right now! I felt a boat, a sail, and some wind would be the perfect backdrop for my life.  In real life my sister moved across the country, my boyfriend of the past three years came to stay for a few weeks and then had to go bye again, and the new school year is coming up soon, so my summer vacation was filled with so much, and I’m left at this point just letting the wind carry me on.  Add to that a death of a dear friend in my real life, and a loss in the second life community, I’m left feeling exhausted, but grateful for the blessings I’ve been given.

It is amazing how much can happen in SL even if you are only away for a few weeks.  It is a reminder that the world moves on with or without you.  There were tons of great releases I missed, but I remembered loving this blazer by Steffen Garcia shared on plurk, so this is where I decided to start.  I have likes and dislikes with blazers.  I’m really not a style diva, and I question my own layering ability on quite a numerous of occasion, so I have to really love a blazer to even make the attempts to layer it with something else.  This jacket has wonderful texturing, and I loved that it had a shorter sleeve, gathered at the elbow.   I really like to find items that will fit underneath a blazer, not the this-looks-great in-the-front, but my undershirt is hanging out in the back.  I found the best I could find in this lovely Tulip top.  On occasion, yes it peeps out a bit, but I found it to complement and work with the blazer quite well.

Ricielli had some newish pants released (at least it said new in the store).  These fit nicely under my Tulip blouse and Steffen Garcia blazer.  I wanted a pop of color, so I decided to go with the complementary colors of a deep orange–tangerine!   Belgravia had a beautiful patent leather heel that shined perfectly.  Too carry the deep orange throughout I added a purse by Boom, and a jewelry set by Je suis.  I adored the new Monso hairstyle at Fameshed when I stop by yesterday, so I added it to finalize my outfit.

I think I did a pretty good job for being absent so long.  I will politely pat myself on the back and sail on.

I have been eyeing this Truth Hair for a while, but didn’t quite know what outfit I wanted to use with it until I found this dress by Has Been Vintage, so while I may not have tons of new, new items here, I do have a beautiful outfit to add to my collection.  I love vintage stuff!   The dress comes in a variety of colors (from pastels to darker options), and it is a great option for your New Year’s celebrations because of the full skirt, and mesh under garments.  I tested a few dance moves and all my bits stayed hidden, although you might just flash those under garments in extreme movements.

And since I was at Has Been Vintage already, I splurged and got this tango dress because you never know when someone might ask you out to dance!  Currently, you can find a Holiday Sale (extended until Dec 31st) at Has Been (25%-50% off mesh items & 50-75% off non-mesh).   Quite honestly, I am really surprised this store hasn’t been featured all that often.  I loved what they had, and I wish I had stumbled across them earlier.

Week Thirty-Four:Russett.

Well, I woke up this morning and realized…52 weeks of Color!?  So I put on my new Maitreya boots and bought this chocolate-colored, babydoll dress by MOLiCHiNO off Marketplace.  My pose comes from Di’s Opera–Fauna Seat.  The seat has some really cute poses inspired by animals!   It is at Limited Edition, so I have no clue if it is still available, but if it is, you need to check it out!

52 Weeks of Color…a Tyrian Purple story.

How you doin’?   I was kinda fading on inspiration when plurk decided to karaoke.  I am not kidding.  The people I listened to were freakin’  faboulous.  So, in homage, I decided to get my lighter out and go down in a blaze of glory.  I mean if I can’t sing, what else am I to do?   Pretend.   Right!?

Five few things of note, besides the side boob, would be:

1) Go shop at Collabor88. You can purchase that top, from R2, there.

2) There is a 50% off sale at Bilo. And, you can purchase these wonderful Bilo capris @ FaMESHed right now.

3) That skin, from the Skinnery,  is kinda amazing and you can find it at The Dressing Room.

4)  Like my shoes….Leverocci.

5)  My sexy waves of hair are from DeLa.

Oh, you wanna be a karaoke rockstar too?  By all means, try out the set by Purple Poses. Be a rock-star! If you can sing,  join plurk and show off your vocal ability.

I have to be honest here.  I kept trying to take pics of me in this adorable outfit, but my butt got in the way.  Every single time I thought I had a good snap…boom. My butt.  In. Every. Shot. So, I have decided to roll with it.

Making these bootilicious shorts would be Lenox Co., a new brand.  I actually think they have a fantasy brand, but this brand is more mainstream. On my flickr, it told me these shorts were at Vintage Fair, which they might in all honestly be, but I couldn’t find them there, so I instead checked out their mainstore. They had the shorts there as well. It also said it would feature more menswear-I know the men need more stuff too!     The shorts were awesome.  The alpha was okay.  I actually had to make my own alpha for them.

The rest of my outfit comes from Collabor88.  I must say I am seriously lovin’ on the shoes from ISON–so  detailed.   I loved the colors and style of the jacket by Boom.  Elikatira did an outstanding  job with both hairs at Collabor88.  I finished off my outfit with a little lipstick from Adore&Abhor.

Lastly, don’t miss out on the Kyoot sale!  Almost everything is 50L!

…and just to prove that every shot was a booty shot.  Seriously.  Some love for those shorts.

Drink to me only with thine eyes

SLink released a mesh gown today!  It is quite stunning.  I was debating between the sea foam color and this blue, but I am glad I went with the royal blue.  I love backless dresses and this number delivers–elegant and sexy–just the way I like my gowns.

Enjoy your Thursday!

Drink to me only with thine eyes, 
And I will pledge with mine; 
Or leave a kiss but in the cup, 
And I'll not look for wine. 
The thirst that from the soul doth rise 
Doth ask a drink divine; 
But might I of Jove's nectar sup, 
I would not change for thine. 
I sent thee late a rosy wreath, 
Not so much honoring thee 
As giving a hope, that there 
It could not withered be. 
But tho thereon didst only breathe, 
And sent'st it back to me; 
Since when it grows, and smells, I swear, 
Not of itself but thee.
by Ben Jonson

Regret for wasted time is more wasted time.

I wish I had more time to play around in SL.  I still am busy, busy, busy; however, today, I decided to run to TDR (The Dressing Room) to pick up something new.  The sweater is mesh.  I didn’t have any issues with sizing it, and I thought it was pretty and of course…PINK.

Since I feel a bit detached from SL, I decided to run over to LISP and look around.  I saw some clocks and it just seemed to fit with my mood.   I feel like I never have enough time! I had been meaning to get back into Luna’s Color Challenge, but haven’t had enough time to commit to the weekly challenge.  I do miss those postings and that group.

Be safe, 
Sophee
