Um. I’ve been playing with different headings and such for things, and yesterday, LOL, I saw that sometimes, even though it looks fine on my site, on the feeds they can look HUGE. Whoops. Sorry. Not really. Maybe. Just a little.
Steffen Garcia released this cute lingerie set at Collabor88. While it is cute, damn the alpha that came with it. So. Guess what. I am alphaless in the above picture. I tried making my dimensions the same as the notecard (which was actually very nice of Garcia to include), but no luck. Could I have fussed with it more? Probably. Could I have made my own alpha? Yes. Did I want to? Nope. So, you might want to try the demo first for this item. I lacked the patience to get it to work today. The texture and mesh work itself is absolutely perfect.
I had no issue with my boots from Baiastice, which are stunning. I love the platform, the thin stiletto heel, the detail and and the fit. To show them off, I decided to put together a quick scene which included items from Sari Sari and 22769. I used 22769’s Northern Lights Ottoman in Sand and modified one of the existing poses included to show off my boots. Behind me, you can find Sari Sari’s release for The Theme Park, an antique drawer. The curtains are from+ER+ and the house is from Scarlet Creative.

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.
