Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book

Happy New Year’s Eve!! This post is less of a fashion post and more of a thank you. I wanted to give a HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to the wonderful designers and event coordinators that took a chance on me this past year and have allowed me to blog their lovely creations and for their fabulous events. I may not have been able to blog as often or as quickly as you might have wanted this year, but believe me when I say that I am grateful for everything! I promise I’ll try to do better for you guys in 2015! And of course, an enormous thank you goes to my sweet readers!! I am thrilled beyond measure every time I blog something and someone says, “I had to go buy that!” Without readers, there would never be a reason to blog anything, and don’t think that we ever forget that! 🙂

Have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve and I’ll see you next year!!

And All Along I Believed I Would Find You

We had a wonderful party last night! I didn’t plan on blogging my dress that I finally found to wear for the party, but well, I logged in and I’m still dressed. And it took me SO long to find a dress, I feel like I should share! 🙂

Style - And all along I believed I would find you

So like I said yesterday, I went to La Penderie de Nicole night before last, and when I saw the My Swarovski Dress, I knew it was perfect for the party! It’s short, but with the neckline being just off the shoulder and having long sleeves, it’s both classy and simple. It comes in different colors and there is a same style dress without the crystal pattern as well, if you’re not into sparklies.

As much as I like dressing up, I think it’s time to take off my heels and go do some shopping!

The White Swan Steps Out

Last night, my lovely family threw me a birthday party! I wore a “vintage” G Field dress that some said reminded them of the White Swan. Luckily for me, Gos Boutique released the new Paris Peeptoes just in time for me to go to the party!

Style - The White Swan Steps Out

These shoes are just perfect for almost any look – simple or fancy or casual or sexy! My favorite thing is that the peeptoe cut-out is a heart! So sweet! I’m wearing them in satin, and they also come in shiny patent. They come in several colors, and of course with the Gos Boutique OneTime HUD, you have hundreds of your favorite skins to choose from so tinting to your skin is a super breeze!

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!

You’re Gonna Miss Me By My Walk

Have you ever noticed that we spend a lot of time looking at our own backsides in SL? When we walk around, our eyes are just THERE. Right on our booties! But luckily there are some fantastic stores out there that make items that make our behinds totally look-worthy. Such as…

Style - You're Gonna Miss Me By My Walk

The new Damask jeans from OneBadPixel are great for your butt! Actually, they’re great all over, because they hug your curves in ALL the right places. But yep, I’ll admit, my eyes went IMMEDIATELY to my behind! With these jeans, people might be sad to see you leave, but they sure won’t be sad to see you walking away!

Oh god, I’m so lame. LOL!

While you’re walking away, people can see the cute bow in your hair on the new Misty hair by Truth! I always love how there is some little detail to Truth‘s hair that just makes it fab. For me this time, it’s the little twist in the back of the hair that leads into the ponytail. You can’t really see it in this picture, but when I got the hair, I was just delighted to see it!

Time to walk!

Well, That’s One Way To Lose These Walking Blues

New beauties for all you shoe lovers out there!

Style - Well, That's One Way To Lose These Walking Blues

Gos Boutique released the new Lauren d’Orsay shoes today! Love love love! You have the option of having the heel have a cap or no cap, like I’m wearing them in this picture.

You know, I could talk more about these shoes, but I don’t see the point. You’re going to buy them because they’re beautiful. That’s all you really need to know. 🙂

[Plus it’s Saturday and I’m super lazy.]

Berry’s Meme – Meet My Friend!

When Berry made her Meet My Friend meme, my first thought was to do it with my best friend. But then I thought, well that’s highly expected, now isn’t it? Over the past 3 years, I’ve shied away from making too many new friends and have stuck with the same few people. Back in January, a blogger named Kirsten Corleone added me to Plurk, but either she wasn’t using it much, or I wasn’t paying attention, because I didn’t really notice her until last month. But let me tell you something – I’m glad I did because she has become one of my favorite people in SL, and I knew she was the one that I should do the meme with.

Style - Meet My Friend

I’m deviating away from the meme slightly because while I did ask her questions, I’ve always found that you get to know a person better when you’re just talking. And oh, did we talk last night! But most of what we talked about needs to stay off the record because it was just us getting to know each other more. I’m sure you all understand. 😉

What I discovered about Kirsten is that she’s awesomely sweet. She’s a lover of pink. She has more jewelry than you can shake a stick at and is now my new go-to person for when I need to find just the right accessory for an outfit. Although she’s been in Second Life for many years, she still loves it and we both still make noob mistakes all of the time. She’s deeply dedicated to her partner in a way that makes you think, “Awww!” and not “Ughhh.”

The best thing that I discovered about Kirsten is that she’s someone I feel really comfortable around, and as most people know, that’s not something that happens a lot for me. I’m very glad Plurk allowed me to meet her, and I’m very happy that this meme allowed me to know her better.

Double Friends

Thanks for doing this with me, Kirsten!

You can see Kirsten’s love for fashion and jewelry on her blog, Kirstentacular!

Gave Up On The Riddle

Have you gone to the Maitreya sale yet?? I will totally admit, I wasn’t going to because for some reason in my brain, I only was remembering the shoes. I thought “Pfft. I have most of those, and I’m really too lazy to tint stuff myself these days anyway.” But then I remembered…

Oh right. THE CLOTHES.

Style - Gave up on the riddle.

The Mignon Evening dress is just so lovely and to be honest, I don’t know why I haven’t bought it before! But I’ll tell you what. Getting it for half price was CERTAINLY nice! 🙂 The Maitreya sale lasts for 2 weeks, so scoot on over and shop!

If you haven’t been to FaMESHed yet, you need to go because look at how gorgeous the Eva shoes from Gos Boutique are! They’re just so darn classy! And you really can’t go wrong with the OneTime skin matching HUD. Easy tinting and gorgeous shoes? Yes, ma’am!

I have much shopping to go do, and so do you!

It’s a good day for singin’ a song!

I feel like I’ve been away from this blog forever! If you read my personal blog, you know why. If you don’t…well, what’s wrong with you? LOL! Kidding! Let’s get on with the good stuff! Well, and some bad stuff. But it’s mostly good stuff.

Style - It's a good day for singin a song

After many years on the grid, and many years of being my “Almost Always” posemaker, Adorkable Peapod is closing her store. SADFACE. She has been one of my favorite favorite posers for ages and although I know this is the best thing for her, I can’t help but think “What about ME!” There is a closing sale at aDORKable Poses until June 9th, so be sure to go pick up some goodies. Thanks for all the years of being the best!

Truth Hawks released some great new hair this week along with his brand new textures! The textures are truly lovely, and although I might have given him some sh!t for taking away the 2 colors I wear most, I do really like the new colors. But shhh, don’t tell him I said that. I fell in love with the Lotus hair because I’ve been doing a side braid a lot in RL lately.

The Boutique opened up for a new round and I’m loving the new Cupcake jewelry from Cae and this awesome Lotus Crown from Noodles! The cool part is that my Cupcake ring fits just fine in between my new Diversity ring set from Stellar! There are several separate rings in the set so you can move them around however you’d like. What in the world did we do before we were just able to ADD lots of stuff?? I’m not usually someone who wears a lot of jewelry, but these lovely lovely ladies may be getting me to change my mind.

Enough talking. It’s time to shop!

Keep it basic, b!tches

I’m having a case of insomnia tonight, so I thought I’d do Magenta’s Basics, B!tches meme. I almost called her Skittles, which I guess would be what most everyone else knows her as, but in case you went to her blog and were like “Skittles? It says her name is Magenta! What’s going on?!” then I wanted to save you any misunderstanding.

Um, anyway.

So Skittles wanted to know what our basics are. What do we go to first, what do we not leave the house with, etc. These are mine!

Keep it basic, b!tches

[Btw, I barely did a single bit of body editing to this pic, which makes me itchy. I did smooth out that jutting angle in my calf, though. I’m not totally crazy.]

I’m pretty simple, if that hasn’t been obvious in this blog. But when I’m not blogging, I’m even more simple and it’s not uncommon for me to stay in an outfit for days if I’m not blogging, OR switching back into a “more comfortable” outfit right after a blog post. I don’t know why. :-p

Hair: I wear Truth hair pretty much 90% of my SLife. I’m most often in his Swedish blonde, but lately I’ve been doing the Fairyfloss color. Someone asked me why recently, and the only answer I can give is that it makes me happy. My second favorite hairs come from Wasabi Pills, and I have to admit, I am really liking the new textures from Exile. But Truth hairs fit my head the best. This one is Haven and it’s the one I reach for almost immediately these days.

Skin: I flip flop between Pink Fuel and Belleza most of the time. I’ll admit that I don’t change skins too often. When I find one I like and that I feel is very ME, I’ll stick with it for a bit, although I do enjoy demoing loads of skins. Currently I’ve been in Kumi from Pink Fuel because of the mesh hands from SLink, which I wear pretty much all the time now. They have the appliers for the hands, and I’m waiting patiently for the feet appliers. Which leads me to…

Feet: I’m in Gos Boutique feet pretty much always, the flat ones. I don’t like walking around on the arched feet very much because it reminds me of Barbie dolls and it’s odd to me. It sounds funny to say, but I really like my av to be comfortable! Since it’s the easiest to match Gos feet to my skin, I’m in his feet and shoes pretty much always for now.

Eyes: I’d be hard pressed to find eyes I like as much as I love IKON eyes. Way way back in the day, I loved Miriel eyes, and Miriel made a blue color that was bright and gorgeous. I could not find anyone that could make that color again! But then along came Ikon and he made some blues that are bright and beautiful, so I’m a customer for life.

Lashes: I wear two at the same time, actually. Ryker Beck made some tattoo lashes a while back and I wear the Dramatic ones. Then on top of that, I have some super old alpha lashes from the former skin store La Sylphide. I love these lashes so much, I don’t care that they’re probably about 4 years old.

Tattoo: I’ve always had a back tattoo in SL. I’m not sure why, but I just always have. I found these back wings from HUZ for free on the marketplace and I just really like them! I think they’re very well done. I AM looking for new wings, though, so if you know of any that don’t look stupid or don’t include sleeves or writing, let me know!

Underpants: I almost always have underpants on these days because with mesh skirts, you just never know who cut the alpha so your lady garden is on display. My faves are the Pop Unders from BOOM. I rarely wear a bra and just put one on for this picture.

AO: Currently I’m using the Daydream AO from Akeyo. Ulaa bought it for me as a gift when it first came out, but if I want something a little simpler without as much movement, I switch to the Akeyo Rookie Female AO which I believe is free or $1L on marketplace.

Shape: My shape is my own. I was a perfect standard size medium but I think there’s some vanity sizing going on because I realized a couple of months ago that I fit better into a small and I hadn’t changed my numbers at all. So I just went with it and adjusted a few things to fit into a small better. I love my shape a lot, I think it really suits me. My face is tweaked pretty much weekly, and any time I get a new skin, I move things around. I’ll never never never be one of those people who thinks that changing their shape must obviously kill a kitten. I love to tweak it to see if I can make myself look a little better or to fit into something I really want to wear.

Thanks for a fun meme, Skittles!! ♥
