Touche

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil milk  (My Second Wardrobe)
Hair:  Exile;  Georgina, Chardonnay, roots
Shirt:  Touche;  Racer Tank, salt
Skirt:  Touche;  Gum Skirt, marmalade (La Venta Eventa)
Shoes:  Ricielli;  The Python set (The Dressing Room)
Necklace:  A:S:S;  Narayan necklace (My Second Wardrobe)
Furnishings:  Crackberry;  Taste of Fall set (La Venta Eventa)

Its so hard to believe that Fall is already creeping in.  Much slower in some places than others, but still visible on the horizon.  Its my favorite season (though I could do without all of the holiday stress) and recently its hues have become some of my most loved.  The golds, reds and oranges I used to avoid like the plague are now threatening to take over my wardrobe.  I had always thought browns so dull, but now they feel comforting and cozy to me.

This skirt and the furniture pieces combine all these shades I’ve come to adore.  I love that the hem and waist follow the circular patterns of the skirts instead of a straight crease, giving it a very delicate appearance.

The runner on the table and the throw on the bench are clickable to color-change, sticking with the autumn tones.

I miss my island.  I miss my beach.  In fact, I missed it so much, I had to go and buy a small plot of beachfront property (which somehow manages to be right smack in the middle of several horse ranches).  I’ve been hard at work building a pier and new beach house and needed a break.


I’ve been using a lot of Distressed Textures in my builds recently and I could spend hours and thousands of Linden there.  They just moved their mainstore last week and the new sim is a great place for pictures.  There was a sim photo contest running and I’m not sure of the deadline for submissions, so make sure to drop by and see the details to find out when it ends.  If you don’t have time to visit in-world, most everything is available conveniently on Marketplace.

 

I can’t wait til I’m done and can begin the fun part of decorating!  I found so many cute new things at Cheeky Pea, Clutter, Crackberry, MudHoney, and Awesome Blossom.  It seems there are so many stores out with tons of adorable shabby chic pieces, its hard to stay focused and choose selectively what I really need and I just buy everything!

 

Of course, I did take some shopping time away from the new project to go grab this cute shirt and the shorts my sis, Bubbles, featured from Tres Blah last week.  The rest of my list will have to wait…I think I need more textures.

Lovin’ That Crack

I’m always on the lookout for cute, inexpensive furniture-type items that have poses built-in that I can use for pictures.  On Saturday, I was curious when I was browsing the Taste of SL list on one of my favorite websites, The Rumor, and found this lime and purple set featured from Crackberry.  I was intrigued by the color combination, so I tp’d over to see it and I must admit, I was really pleasantly surprised.  Not only by this set on its own, but by all the furniture.

 

There are only a few of the items from the whole set shown in the picture above, simply because I didn’t have time to rez and position them all.  There’s also a love seat and chair, as well as wall pieces and plants.  The textures on the pieces are really well done and all the totally cute tchotchkies on the bookshelf come with it!  The Taste of SL special price may be expired (not sure) but the set is definitely worth paying full price (I would) and I plan to go back to Crackberry and buy additional sets.  I only wish the selection wasn’t as limited so I don’t run out of pieces to buy!
