So, I am not really that great at layering things.  A few months ago, I drove myself nuts trying to find a oxford type shirt to wear under a sweater.  I was so excited to see another blogger, Carolina Sautereau (layering and outfit extraordinaire), blog an outfit with the little tails of the shirt out.  So, I can’t take credit for coming up with this layering technique, but I like it.  It really doesn’t function all that well when you are moving around though.  I hope someone makes an oxford type mesh shirt that goes under mesh sweaters.  I have tried combining what I have, but unless I wear an XXL sweater with an XXS (which doesn’t look proportionate) it can’t be done. If you have suggestions, I will take them of course!!!

I really love this outfit, and I am so glad I picked up this scarf by Apple May. At the time, I had no idea how I was going to use it, but it works perfectly with this outfit.  Lately, I’ve been in the mood just to create an outfit from items that I liked but never had the chance to blog, so excuse me if I am not presenting all the new stuff!  Cece by Truth Hair is however one of the newest hairstyles by Truth, and you can also pick up my skin, Iris by the Skinnery, at The Arcade (which closes December 31st).

I’m am beyond happy that COCO is releasing more often right now.  I love the leather coat that I got from there, and this tuxedo jacket is another to add to my collection of outerwear   My favorite option is that they can be worn with or without the shirt underneath, and because they have that option, the combinations can be endless.  The jacket itself seems to work well with other mesh items underneath because it was made for layering.

DeLa also released a new pony tail hairstyle.  The back is so pretty!

Pose-Focus Poses-101

While I may or may not have been MIA these past few weeks, tons of new items may or may not have been released.  These said items may or may not be found in stores and events around Second Life.   Okay, well that was the worst blog start ever.

I have been avoided blogging.  I am swamped, knee deep in real life and trying to dig myself out of my own mess.   I was sick a few weeks ago, and wow, how that just sucked the energy to do anything out of me (I still feel congested weeks later).  For weeks now, I have avoided everything and anything, including Second Life.   Don’t get me wrong.  I am a girl who knows how to spend some Linden, but my mind just wasn’t there.  I fiddled with a few pictures I uploaded to flickr, and everything I looked at I just hated–not the clothes mind you–they were great! I don’t mind doing credits for something that I really like…but credits for a photo I do think quite cuts it…blah, a nightmare.  It is like I am sending out some giant negative vibe to the world, and they will all know it and frown just because of me.

Vive Nine did surprise me with a new skin.  I managed to put my work aside for a couple hours and invest some time in creating a picture for this beautiful skin.  Normally, I am not really a Vive Nine skin girl.  They have mature features, and my shape normally doesn’t do their skin line any favors.  But, I happened to love their newest release Maliah.  It is different than what I normally wear.  The lips have more of a caked look, not the juicy, shiny lips that you can see on so many other skins.  I also loved the many, many make-up add-ons to change your look.

In the first time, in a long time (it seems), I actually managed to make it over to this blog and post  a picture with credits. I guess I can thank Vive Nine for that!

I added the new Truth hair, Demi,  because Truth hair makes everyone happy.  :)

Chores

I am one of those people that will, at all costs, avoid chores.  Right now, in the kitchen, are a bunch of dishes that need to be cleaned and put away, but instead I am here posting about how I don’t want to do it. Ha!  I have found that time, for me, gets sucked into a black hole.  I complain sometimes about not having enough off it, but in reality, I do.  I just don’t always use it so wisely.  I quite adore people who juggle multiple tasks and don’t break a sweat.   I start to panic when I form any type of to-do list–I just freeze.  Even when I see other people’s to-do lists, I start to fidget.  The idea of keeping track of things that I don’t want to do absolutely terrifies me, and I can’t understand the practice of it.  I just prefer to shove that list inside a small container in the back of my brain and hope that instead of it getting done, it just goes away.  I guess this avoidance thing isn’t the best philosophy.  I absolutely love simplicity.  I think that is why I like this outfit.  It is something I would wear in real life.  A jean skirt, a t-shirt, and some loafers. Simple.  Jane offers a great bargain for t-shirts, perfect for layering.  I had been looking for a jean skirt for a while now, and I love this one by So Many Styles.  My comfy shoes are by Miel–quite adorable.  The best way to make something simple a bit more fun–add a great necklace.  This one is by Miel as well (a new to me store I am currently loving).
