Riddle Me This

Dress:  Riddle;  High Waisted Skirt w/ White Lace Mini Tank
Shoes:  Purple Moon;  Polka pumps, dirty black

Another short one today (and not just the dress).  Just about everything in this ensemble was from either a sale or an event, though I put this one together before my epiphany about recording which ones.  Live and learn!

I’m Just Peachy

Skin:  Sorry.Asia;  Rurutia, august
Hair:  Shag;  Thai Me Up, roots afterglow
Shirt:  Stellar;  Brynn, peach
Shorts:  Stellar;  Bermuda jeans, peach
Shoes:  Clutter;  Merribeth sneakers, Kat is Boring
Bracelets:  League;  Pearts and Lace, pastels
Tattoo:  Waffle!;  Love neck tattoo

I’ve gone sale list crazy since returning home and figured I’d better start featuring some of the items I’ve been snagging.  I’m pretty sure everything but the tattoo is from one sale or another.   As I was putting together the list for the styling information I realized that I should have recorded which event each item was from.  My bad.  But I have started doing it since that light bulb flashed, so you’ll see them in the future.

Xan and I are taking a vacation in Second Life, so maybe by next week I’ll be able to show you some of the exciting things we have in store on our itinerary!

Sometimes the Wait is Worth It

Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, milk, angelic
Hair:  Clawtooth;  Pretty Words, snow
T-shirt:  Tres Blah;  Used raglan 4
Shorts:  Maitreya;  Jean shorts, faded
Socks:  Jane;  Lil piggies, rugby knee hi, milk
Shoes:  SoReal;  Superstars, white/blue/red
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer & Miel; Chum bracelets

I love being a tomboy every now and again and this raggedy shirt is perfect for those casual days at home.  I saw this shirt on one of the “bargain” lists  (FLF, SBS, TOSL…I honestly don’t remember which one it was) and I knew I had to have it.

I love Tres Blah items, but I always seem to have a problem rezzing items in that sim, so I don’t go very often.  It makes me kinda sad that most days I don’t have the time or the patience to deal with all that, but for this shirt it was worth it.  I was able to put together another new casual favorite for days when I just don’t feel like getting all dressed up.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Lemon

Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, milk, angelic
Hair:  Truth;  Pandora, champagne streaked
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Shirt:  Indyra Originals;  Kaegan Cowl Necked Jersey top, aurora
Shorts:  Maitreya;  Jean shorts, faded
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer & Miel;  Chum

I went pretty much down-to-the-wire with this week’s challenge due to some RL issues and I’m just now writing the post to go with the picture right before I publish it.

Thank goodness Lemon was easy enough for me to assemble.  Not because of an abundance of yellow items, but just the opposite and only having a few in my inventory.  I’ve always felt that as a blonde, yellow tones kinda washed me out.  Its only been recently that I’ve been picking up a few here and there.  I have so few yellow items, I actually had to go back to my pictures for Yellow, Goldenrod, and Banana to make sure I hadn’t used this top before.

I finally gave in and got the Elly skin from Pink Fuel and I’ve got it ranked among my top two favorite skins in my inventory.  I’ve also been branching out with my eyes, using Aphotic Gloom (instead of my usual Negaposi) and in shades other than green.

I’m excited about next week’s color, Patriarch, a rich royal purple!

More From the Mansion

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 1
Hair:  LeLutka;  Loose, sweeden
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, watermelon
Lingerie:  The Whore Mansion;  Neglige Intimate
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer bracelet & Miel;  Chum bracelet

When I made my first trip to The Whore Mansion last week, I picked up several items, some that all modesty prevents me from highlighting here.  But I can show off my new lingerie.  It looks so comfortable and soft, I wish I had one like it in RL.

My new Chum bracelet from Miel and the Loose hair from LeLutka are quickly becoming part of my go-to wardrobe.  And for a great bargain…the Watermelon eyes from Aphotic Gloom were only $ 1 L on Marketplace!

Can’t Pass Up This Bargain

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Renzie, peacock tan
Hair:  Exile;  Aroha, vanilla roots
Shirt:  League;  Broderie Anglais blouse, off white
Pants:  Fri.day;  Checked Capri  (FLF)
Shoes:  Pixel Mode;  Fae Wedges, white
Bracelets:  U & R Dogs;  Missa Luba, gold & Mandala;  Kabuki, silver

I’ve been cutting back quite a bit in my shopping lately and being more discerning about the items I pick up from the bargain lists.  Instead of just tp and grab, I check the blogs, look at the pictures and actually ask myself if I would end up wearing it.  If the answer is yes, then I tp and grab.

Such was the case with these super-cute capris featured on the Fifty Linden Friday list last week.  These were available in a solid and this plaid and though I don’t normally wear patterned pants, these were just too cute to pass up.  By the way, did I mention how cute they are?

Also on my must have list since I saw the ad in my inbox was this top from League.  Very soft and feminine looking.  So very much not my usual style, but I’m spreading my fashion wings lately.

And look!  Another of my treasures from Hair Fair!  This year’s offerings from Exile were top-notch and I’m full of love for the rooted textures they’ve started offering.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Celadon

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 11
Hair:  LeLutka;  Knotted, sweeden
Eyes:  Leezu;  Deep Reflection Eyes, green
Tshirt:  Jane;  Layering Tee, celery
Long Sleeve Shirt:  Jane;  Sheer Layers, eucalyptus
Jeans:  Twisted & Spoiled;  T&S jeans, antique
Scarf:  Jane;  Floret tie, avocado
Jewelry:  League;  Wanderer bracelet & Miel;  Chum bracelet

Until this week’s color challenge, I had only heard “celadon” in reference to the beautiful jade-colored Chinese Song Dynasty pottery pieces.  It was a challenge to try to put together a look that would fittingly represent the stunning pieces I remember seeing.

Can I also say how much in love I am with this hair from LeLutka’s Hair Fair booth this year???  It comes with tattoo hair bases that specifically match each shade in the color pack.

As you can see, I’m still practicing with SL shadows.  I’ve found a few Windlight settings that seem to work well with my style.  I do alright against a studio backdrop, but they don’t seem to show as well when I go out into the wilds of a sim.

Finally Found: The Whore Mansion

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 1
Hair:  Clawtooth;  Pretty Words, bombshell blonde
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, watermelon
Shirt:  The Whore Mansion;  Suck My Top, cool white
Skirt:  The Whore Mansion;  Candie’s skirt, pattern dots
Socks:  Jane;  Lil Piggies Sassy socks, milk
Shoes:  UBU;  PornStar xtra high tops
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer bracelet & Miel;  Chum bracelet

Thanks to Luna Jubilee’s Mauve Color Challenge post, I finally managed to find The Whore Mansion.  Now its no secret to anyone that knows me that I like to bust out (literally) the slutty clothes occasionally.  And with a boyfriend that really appreciates short skirts, I find myself in them more often than not lately.  The Whore Mansion was a perfect shopping site for all my tight, low-cut and micro-skirt needs.

I couldn’t resist this little mix n’ match outfit in hot pink and virginal white that gave me an 80’s vibe.  I decided not to go with the expected Do-Me stilettos and went kinda tomboyish with the over-the-knee socks and hightops.

I also got to show off one of my Hair Fair finds from Clawtooth and my new eyes from Aphotic Gloom (referred by a post on Gogo’s blog).
