Truth… I kept believing it falls always from the lips of the one you love and trust the most.

“Love … I put so much faith in it. Truth … I kept believing it falls always from the lips of the one you love and trust the most. Faith … it’s all bound up to love and trust. Where does one end and the other start, and how do you tell when love is the blindest of all?”
― V.C. Andrews, Flowers in the Attic

Shiny Shabby is back for October. You can see the gallery over at Seraphim of all beautiful items to preshop. Zenith released an ornate dress that falls just above the ankles at Shiny Shabby that immediately grabbed my attention.  The Vintage Corset dress is offered in standard sizing.  I decided to rock the Just Design Friday heels (socks included) with the dress. Just Design fits their shoes to Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya feet–since I change my body daily it is nice to have such a myriad of options.  These shoes are available at the Pastel Goth Event. Glam Affair also released new head appliers for the LeLutka mesh heads in celebration of the new added expressions to Lelutka’s mesh heads. I chose to mix and match Eline and Laura.  Make sure to look for an update or revisit their delivery system in store.  You can pick up your new Glam Affair appliers while you do so!

For those that do not know, I did update my earlier post about Maitreya to reflect their response.  I am not sure how or why so many people close to the situation were confused.  I know that designers were in a panic, no notice stated why weights were not included in these specific kits, and no one was responding to inquiries from Maitreya to resolve the situation.   Maitreya’s statement makes it clear that these issues were isolated.  I will let time tell the rest of this story and look forward to Maitreya supporting other content creators.

Slink has released a curvier version of her mesh body.  Since I collect mesh bodies as a side hobby, I am sure this one will be added to my inventory as well.  With the success of mesh bodies, I can only see more and more bodies on the horizon

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 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.

The Arcade: Revisiting Childhood

Me, as I unpack my Arcade stuff…I just snapped a quick picture using DOF with my wand and footie pajamas.  Um, if I had all the money in the world, I would still be at The Arcade trying to collect every single wand and jammie out there:

The Arcade

So, as I started to unpack, I realized I had tons of stuff. I just cleaned out my inventory a couple weeks ago, and this gacha thing made a serious mess. But, I had so much fun in the process that I didn’t care.  I don’t think I got one thing that I set out to get, but it didn’t matter, and I ended up loving the items I did get.   In a few months time I won’t remember any of that, but I will remember how The Arcade made me feel like a kid again.
