in search of fairer weather

Good afternoon!  There are tons of goodies that are so cute out there waiting for you!  Mon Tissu is back!  I really do love their denim, and the cuffed jeans are no exception.  The top by Tres Blah at Collabor88 fits perfectly over the jeans.  I love it when items just work together.  The top by Tres Blah allows for some room to fit with other pieces.  I am a lover of clunky platform shoes.  Renegade has put out some amazing ones at Kustom9 that come with a hud to change the base color.  Argrace has put out a whimsical pony tail style. I love the whispies on the hair that give it some movement. The bottom is detachable, so you also go for a shorter hairstyle as well.  Glam Affair will have another amazing skin available the Cutie Moon Fair April 1st.  While I opted for more neutral combinations for this post, the skin adds a Cutie Moon flair by offering some wild and fun color palettes as well.

Baiastice made some gorgeous lingerie.  I was pleasantly surprised by the fit and beauty of the piece above, and there was another style just as pretty.  In addition to  new lingerie, Pink Fuel released a skin called Sora at Futurewave.  It is a beautiful skin.  The skin is only available in dark eyebrows, but it conveniently includes a no brow version, so you can use an eyebrow layer blondes!  I snagged my eyebrow layer from Buzz.

Cemetery of Forgotten Books

Poses by Sari Sari-I❤ books [#5-6 shown] *NEW @ Geeks’n’ Nerds//Available Nov 24th

Two new items that hit close to my heart were released in the last few days:  A belted pencil dress with tie (also without tie option) and high slit on the side, as well as,  a set of poses called I❤ books.  Two items couldn’t be more appropriate to blog together.  Ugh. I love when the universe collides and offers small gifts.  A library picture was in my future and because of the dork I am, I got excited.  I did attempt to find an on-location spot, but I ended up resorting to my trusty G.O.D. Library.  I may or may not rez this and just sit and look at it.  Judge away.

Girl Thursday is a new brand, mainstore at The Deck.  However, my dress is their only current release available at The Attic, so make sure to stop by here to check this dress out.  Girl Thursday should be releasing more items throughout this month, and I hope continuing because I want more.  You can read about them at their website. Bravo to a great first release!

My poses are a new release from Sari Sari.  The store carries a myriad of couple poses, decor, and cute single poses like the one I using today called I❤ books.  I really did enjoy coming up with a scene using these poses, and as soon as I did I was reminded of a series called The Cemetery of Forgotten Books by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, hence the title of my post. You can find this new pose release at Geeks’n’Nerds event! More info here!

I also chuckled when I decided on using Party Girl by Exile just because I found it pretty hilarious to use hair named this and a post about books and a library.  I know pretty silly, but it still entertained me.

“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”  –Shadow of the Wind by Zafón

Shoetopia 2013 is coming! I am really excited for this event.  There are already a plethora of creators on the list (you can find here).  For those who do some blogging for events, Shoetopia will be hand selecting main bloggers for the event, but they also have an opportunity for a few bloggers to gain early access to the event.  Squeal…Right!!! To be one of those lucky few, the process is pretty simple: 1) Fill out an application 2) Submit your best shoe photos to this group.    My photo above is my first entry (you are only allowed to have two). Make sure to read the rules for this contest!  Name your photos correctly!  Also, you can use any shoe in your photo, so it does not need to be a new release or a certain brand, so get out your favorite shoes ever and snap some pics!

Speaking of events, The Black Fair is open until 8.23.13.  You can find my Black Viper dress and jewelry set from Pure Poison at the event.  I feel pretty sexy in this outfit.  It is definitely an I have boobs and I want you to look at them outfit.  The cinched waist adds to your curves as well.

I slipped on a pair of Hucci’s Manteo Heels (for Slink) in midnight to add a small pop of color.  I adored the shoes when I got them a bit ago, but I kept buying pastel clothing and such so I didn’t have any thing to wear with them until now.

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.

Dazed and Confused

!bang-Fluidity-320 & !bang-Susceptible- 329 @ Zodiac

As I previously told you, I got a ton of items at Zodiac.  I decided to show a few more of those pieces off in this post.  First, I picked up a tube top with some unique and vibrate texturing from Happy.  I loved the design of the front.  It completely girly, girly.  To down play that femininity, I paired it with Vive Nine’s newest off-brand Ryvolter’s Jogging pants. I tried several of the pants available and I really liked the texturing on these!  I am definitely going to make another trip to Vive Nine in the near future. You can read more about this new venture for Vive Nine here.

I decided to pass on my sweet blonde hair and opt for the Elvira fades in Truth’s newest style called Haven. This outfit was just so much fun to prance around in.  I had some transparency issues with the top and my hair.  I kept having to take off my hair and put back on repeatedly to get rid of those issues. Lastly, my latest pose purchase also came from Zodiac and from !bang.  These pose packs offer a variety of subtle movements that can add a ton of personality to your pictures.

Pose-Curio Obscura-Pin Up-Seated 04

I got the boyfriend’s letter jacket, the cheer bow, heels that you should never wear in high school (nor skirt for that matter), and my phone. I am ready to learn!

I am way behind on what is new and current in the last three weeks because I took a blogging break, but I am slowly trying to get back at it.  Slowly.  Of course, there will be my life long companions forever: GOS shoes.  I think they might have made it into my top three items I will take to a deserted island, bumping out drinking water.   My jacket is from Sheep Door, and I have no idea when it was released, but it is super cute.  My hair is last week’s release from Truth Hair.  Ra Ra. The rest I just bought for this photo or found in my inventory, including Adorkable’s Call Me series.  Sadly, there were no sitting poses with it,  but I got to use the cool phone.

Frigid.

I’m assuming my audience is mostly made up of other bloggers, so I have to ask a question.  Do you ever edit one picture, and then just want to forget about the rest?  For example, I really liked my first photo, but the only reason I decided to make a snowy picture was to highlight the free jacket I’m wearing, but of course, the picture I like, well you can’t see the jacket, so conundrum.  I gotta take some more photos.  Of course, I could keep it simple, but I don’t.  I decide I am going to add more snow, and I am going to try out using slow motion animations, and then my teeth look so weird, so I gotta fix those.  Ugh.  Seriously.  One photo.  Why do you have to be so time-consuming?  Then, you hop on Flickr and realize that somebody made this beautiful photo and in the description field they say…oh this is just a 15 minute edit. Really?  I wish I could do a 15 minute edit and my pictures look amazing!  Heck, I wish I could find a pose I like  or a pair of earrings I like in 15 minutes. I am just going to ignore those people who come up with those huge wonderful set designs.  How much time does that take?

So basically, can ya’ll stop being so freakin talented?

Kidding aside, my jacket is free and it comes by group gift from Foppish.  I am sure it has been highlighted numerous times, but I just loved it.  I ended up getting a couple of other things at Foppish as well.  I also hit up the Knitting Circle Rummage Sale.  Woot for sales!
