Post #27 Mayfair Madness

I love the new tops that Mon Tissu have released.  They are just perfect and have caused me to seriously delete about 80% of my prim clothing.  Nothing can compare to well made mesh.  The detail is insane.  Seams, shadows, wrinkles... ack!  They are very talented designers.  I picked up two different color tops and have been wearing them for the last few days.  I decided nothing else I had (and wasn't already bored of) was going to do this top justice so I needed to buy some new items to go with it.  I went back to Mayfair and knew Celoe would come through.
The skirt was beautiful.  Fit perfectly, loved the pleats, detail and color.  I did have a Maitreya skirt but this one did put that one to shame.
The shoes finished the outfit, as well as the Miel jewelry.  I really love this outfit and don't want to take it off!

I found a cool spot IN Celoe to take these pictures too haha.  Why not?

off to buy the new corsets....

Post #26 Shopping Spree! (and a freebie)

Oh boy did I ever blow my weekly budget today!  New dress, new shoes, new hair, too many poses, and a free skin!  It was kind of an accident as I was looking for a new skin and since I try not to buy the 6 zillion low priced template stuff on the grid, I started going to the more expensive shops.  First place I hit up was Al Vulo.  Jeez!  The April gift was so pretty!
Since it was quite tan and tan skins kind of turn me off, reminding me of glamazons dancing in 80's themed clubs, I thought I should soften it a bit and try to dress as bloody innocent I could.  Fashionably Dead sent out info on a new dress they had just released so I thought I would check it out.  I like their original styles very much.  The dress is mesh, and fit me so well.  It also has added flowers to it that make it special.  I bought it no questions asked haha.
This dress is the BEST!

I found the perfect shoes to match in the same shop!  How lucky was that!

I got all the great poses at the Pose Fair.  They are made by D.Luxx Poses.

Reasonably priced and pretty nice!  Check them out!

Post #25 Africa

After buying this lovely dress at Cold Logic I knew I wanted to find a place where the background would meld with the colors of the gown.  I'm a big brown/orange/moss green fan, and I just fell in love with the dress and the scenery of the sim Africa.
I found some great boots at G.Field and a lovely necklace at the Dressing Room to complete the look.  I love the way the drums and other thingie to the right work out with the dress.  I am still wondering why my face always looks deformed when I try different windlight settings with shadows.  Hmmm...

Post #24 Updating Old Clothes

I started making "outfit" folders back in 2009.  I have accumulated many many outfits for different occasions.  Around the summer of 2009 I went through a bit of a neko phase.  Being the puritan I am, I opted for the safe happy kitty look.  I remember buying this outfit (ears and tails not included) from League.  Ooooh I saved up for this sucker.  I was really happy once I got it and wore it to a few neko contests at some clubs (where I seemed to get all my money from), and around the grid while shopping.  After a few months, the fascination with the style ended, plus I do hate cats, and the outfit was all but forgotten.
I was going through my folders today and I got into the costumes section and put this baby on.  It's so cute.  But I will never wear it again.  I do still really like the dress, even though the skirt is flexi, so I decided to give it a makeover.  I still love that old 69 hair, but it's also way too flexible.  Flying everywhere all carefree...

I toned it down and made it something I would not be weirded out to wear in public.  I can't believe I used to think those big arse butt kickin' boots were the bomb back in the day.  I also thought being 7 feet tall with too long arms looked normal too, so I'm not sure where my head was.  I'm sure a few years from now, if I'm still on SL I'll be looking at my clothes now shaking my head with laughter.
I might wear this once and a while if I find a forest...

Post #23 Maitreya Jeans

Mocksoup Graves gives out such lovely makeup to her group.  She does such a good job on eyeshadows, they are very light and feathery and blend well.  I like the lipstains too because they aren't cartoonish. 
I got a notecard today announcing that for group members of Maitreya, they had a special pair of jeans set out for half price.  I really do love Maitreya mesh products so I ran right out there and bought myself a pair.  I was impressed.  they fit really well (size small) and I had to test them out by getting myself into all kinds of positions to see how they would bend with my body.
How uncomfortable this pose would be in real life!
So the important thing is making your butt look good, and I think they did a fine job.  Not too big of a space in between the legs, and a good lift in the back.  I just may go back and buy the whole fatpack!  One thing about Maitreya (or maybe it's a bad thing), is that they kind of have the price set high on one item but if you buy the fatpack you save tremendously, but of course end up spending a whole lot more.  Tricky but wise!  

Happy 4/20~!..

Post #22 Feeling Like a Blue Bird

Never being one to pass up a good photo opportunity, I jumped on this really cute swing at the "Pose Fair".  It was located at most awesomely decorated store, Lost Angel.  They had some really awesome props there.

Last fall I got hooked on Mamboo Chic skins.  They have some free ones at their older store on a lucky board, and if you join their group you can get skins every once and a while.  I paid 300L for it, I think.  This is one of the gifts, Olivie.  It's a 'bit' orangey, but I really do love how it looks.  I call this one mid-age.  I wear Mynerva and I feel really young, I wear Dutch Touch and I feel much older.  This is kind of in the middle.  
I got this top and jeans at Oyakin.  Around the time I got the skin.  I really like the two together.  So sweet and cute.  Went great with the prop.  Just kinda hanging out all flowy and stuff.  The top is doing strange things while I am posing, lol.  But when you are standing around, even in an AO, it is all lined up and not sticking out of your breastbone.  What can I say I don't do much editing in my pix.  So unprofessional, I know.

Post #21 Remembering the 90's

I "came of age" in the 90's and totally used to dress like this.  I was just out the other day and saw some girls coming out of a club dressed in really tight jeans and flimsy tops, high heeled boots and just really feminine looks.  Man, I dressed like a boy back in my time.  Everything was all "grunge" and "alternative".  I don't think I've ever used hairspray.  I did use lipgloss...
Wore lots of beaded necklaces, and wore my hair plain and stringy.  Minimal makeup and torn up shirts and jeans.  Guys jeans. 
Torn up tights were a staple, along with Doc Martens.  I wanted to be a bass player, LoL.
I used to hang out at a record shop downtown, where they sold vinyl and bongs.  I had a whole collection of albums and a shitty record player.  I lost all my records when my brother helped me move and forgot to give me back the chest I kept them in.  Last thing I heard his ex-girlfriend's dad had them.. dayum!

Post #20 Chillaxin'

I love the new mesh hair that came out a few weeks ago by !lamb.  I remember when I first went into the store a couple of years ago, I was pretty horrified at the fact the hair was STIFF as hell!  I was, at the time, a major Truth junkie, and used to flowy hair.  So I got a bunch of demos and kept them in my inventory for a long time.  Putting them on once and a while and kinda wincing about the stiff hair going into my boobs when I moved.  Then one day something inside me changed.  I don't know if it was the fact that Truth was recycling hairdos by that point or !lamb was giving out some rooted blonde 'dos.  I am a rooted blonde irl, so I thought ah, I'm gonna pick these up.  FELL IN LOVE.  SO I started buying every style they had w/roots.  Got used to the stiff hair pretty fast.  Great for pictures.  And who cares if it goes in your boob when you move, it's not like you can feel it right?  Now mesh hairs from !lamb.  This was like a dream come true.  I mean it, i got verklempt inside.  I hadn't been that happy since the big Maitreya 50% sale of 2010. 
So I bought this crazy colored pack, because I like to live on the wild side sometimes and thought, hmmm, what the hell goes with green hair (the pink and blue I could use but the green...).  I noticed people running around with jeans hanging off them like they had on diapers with rocks in them and said YES.  Love these jeans.  They are mesh and insane.  Had to pose to give them the full chunky chunk experience.
I call this pose "no officer i wasn't robbing that convenience store for lime kool-aid"...
This top was pretty cute.  It kinda lights up in the dark, not sure what's up with that, but it's cute.  And I have a bit of a hippe style, so I bought it, cuz it's 'me'.  They had matching tops in the jeans store but they said stuff on them like "F*ck Off" and "Smile" or something, and I just can't support mood swings that way.
I picked up the uber cute bracelets at Collabor88 from "Earthstones", three of them and stacked them.
I love these jeans lmao.  They are actually really well made and fit well.  but look best when my legs are spread open, not as much upsidedown but you get the gist of the look... haha.

Post #19 Red Fire Hydrant and HUNT!

 You only have till Sunday to pick up these cute purple pieces at Purple Moon.  It was a pretty easy hunt and I was quite suprised at the quality of items I recieved.  Nails, Two sets of jewelery, tops, purse, casual pants, weird pants (as seen here)... boots I Didn't totally like... but nice stuff.  Mesh and prim.
These pants are outrageous!  Took me a bit to find a pose to show how they look when your legs are spread apart... kinda looks like I'm running away from the ostrich I stole the feathers from!
 I really love this mesh purse.  You can either hold it on your arm (as shown) or in your hand. Although it always makes me cry tears of sadness when my AO starts flitting my arms around and my purse ends up in my head... /cry tears of sadness.
I think I liked this outfit best.  I picked up these awesome shoes from NCore at a sale somewhere I can't possibly remember, and I don't usually wear the super high heels they have there, but these pumps were the bomb.

So get there before the 15th!  You got two days left...!

I'm so Aubergine!

Post #18 Collabor88 & Paris

April's Collabor88 is here and I teleported my excited little avatar into the darkness that is the store entrance.  Man it was packed!  I got all rubberbandy with my walking and kept mowing people down and walking forward, backward, all over.  Finally I said 'ugh no way' and logged out.  Came back later, about 4am to be exact and it was a lot more manageable.

Fell in love with this super cute Kyoot top even though it wasn't mesh.  I've become a mesh snob sorta.  But.. I'd rather have a primmy top that looked good than a generic mesh template (i wanted to type platelet !?).  The pants are really nice in detail and I might go back and get more colors although I really shouldn't as I already have six thousand different types of capris in my inventory.  Yes I enjoy exaggerating numbers.
The Sea Hole has some fabulous jewelery and a great dress design this month (mesh too!).  I have to pick up all the colors of the jewelery.  It comes with a cigarette & holder.  Very "classy broad" look.  LoL.   The skin is Illusory and I quite like this brand.  They do remind me a bit of Atomic, (how they make my face look, rather bitchy but not too much).  I wore the toothy smile skin for this.
Since the theme was french this round I had to find somewhere french to take pix.  So I typed in 'paris' and ended up at this place, it's pretty nice.  They have an eiffel tower and lots of fake 1912 looking people standing around.  I didn't want to be obvious standing next to the tower so I chose a simple street to stand around and act like an attention ho.  I'm not qute sure if my outfit is more french or more sailor.  I'll settle with french sailorette.

Post #17 Trico Fail Mission

Last evening I put on a premade outfit I made a couple of summers ago.  I remember buying this hair from a place called Trico with many :::::'s in the name.  I wanted to see if they had any mesh hair or new styles, but I could not find it anywhere.  I did find the group though, and there was one member left, so I checked out their profile and they had a link to a place called ::::slow loris::::.  the amount of :::'s convinced me it was the same person who had previously owned Trico. Although the original hair wasn't there, there was a few new styles that I liked, and ended up buying all of them. 
Last week I tried on a demo for hair and fell in love with the brown color.  I have so much blonde hair, I find some of the styles start overlapping from different stores so I think I'm going to buy darker colors for a while.  This is a style I picked up at slow loris, looked great in brown.  This skin has really never looked good in blonde to tell you the truth, and I haven't worn it much, so it was nice to bring it out again and appreciate it.

I remember when I had super muscular thighs and less wide hips, these boyfriend jeans from Maitreya looked super horrible on me.  Since I thinned out my legs a bit and widened my hips the pants fit me better... in the front anyway... I mean they are boyfriend jeans, so they are supposed to be baggy right?

Still kinda looked like I have a diaper on, among other things, but they are still pretty cool pants.  Love them with the vest and the new hair!
