A bit ago, I saw this photograph of a girl sitting on a bench in a red beret, so imagine my surprise when I saw Truth Hair put out Edith, hair with a beret. This photo was meant to happen! So, I used a photograph as inspiration. Some things helped in the process of making this photograph happen. Fri.day had a retirement sale (probably over by the time you read this-ends Jan 13). This is awesome for three reasons: discounted clothing, more new mesh items to come in the future, and I scored some items that work well under my mesh stuff, like this dress (which I just used as a top). I was hopelessly looking for something to fit under this jacket and the shirt and tie from this dress fit nicely under, and it adds a bit o’ character to the overall outfit.
If you like to stay up to date on real-life inspired fashion, then Vive Nine is your store. Leather-sleeved jackets are most certainly trending, and this jean jacket can be versatile-dress up, dress down–your still in style! Glasses as accessories are also a current trend, and I decided to be a bit more studious today. I’ve been thinking again. You can think for yourself too by purchasing a pair from SOVI3T.
The rest of my outfit are clothing must-haves, from Izzie’s, black tights, and from N-Core, red heels. Shhh. I found another pair of red shoes, and here I thought I didn’t have any (you will have to read my previous post to understand), however, these I can wear with tights.
And, there you have it folks- these glasses make me wanna read a book or you know, something smart, so off I go…..

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.

P.S. Sorry for all the sparkles. I just wanted to be sparkly.
Once every ten weeks evil comes to my home and life. The skies darken eclipsing the sun and leaving nothing but a deafening silence. This evil lurks around every corner and nothing can prevent it from passing through my life-it can not be avoided This evil is the end of the grading period for this sad, tired teacher. I’m sorry to build up to nothing, but wow, I have missed my blog.
Even though I still have five papers and a handful of projects still to sift through, I decided to stop and blog this outfit which I have been wearing since the Costume Ball started. I tried out a few different looks, but this is the one I ended up going with because I really loved the skin from Izzie’s. I feel like Mia Sara from Legend, especially with the black lipstick. Oh great, now I want a unicorn too. I went ahead and bought the fairy gown from Valentina E Couture because a) it is so cute b) it had wings c) it is a gown. I love the creativity behind Valentina E’s clothing. It is different and in the world of mesh, everyone can understand that finding something unique can be a tiny bit hard. Sometimes, the texturing for this brand is different than I am used to and it throws me off (at least I think that is what it is), but you can tell these items are made with a great deal of thought and care.

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!

I actually found something labeled avocado! Cheers! I found it at the March Mesh Madness Event. It is a great everyday outfit, and you could spice it up or down–I like versatility in my clothes. I also purchased the new skin from Exodi, and I have really been loving on it. She really added a bunch of goodies. You can purchase the skin and all the accessories together or just the make-up.
On a side note, I have been messing around with my blog, trying to figure out what I like…decisions, decisions. I am not sure I like the really BIG photos because they can be in your face, and I changed to a white background because some say black backgrounds with white text are harder to read. What do you think? Does it matter to you?

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.
