I Get Too Hungry For Dinner At Eight

My dear forever sister, Rylan Carling, decided to hang up her hat as far as SL fashion blogging goes today. I’m sad, because Rylan has definitely been one of my fashion inspirations for many years now, but I also know that she has so many amazing things that are going to be happening in her offline life. So as much as I want to be selfish and tell her to keep doing it, I am happy for her for so many other reasons. While I was doing my photo tonight, I thought about her. The lighting in the picture reminded me of one she did for my husband and me last year, so Ry, this post is dedicated to you! ILY!!!

Style - I Get Too Hungry For Dinner At Eight

Alice Project has been doing the Advent gift giving over on Mint Tulip this month and it’s been great! Plus, if you miss any of the gifts, Alice has helpfully put them on the wall for the low low price of $50L each. I combined the Bonnie bangs from today’s gift with the Clarissa hair from a previous gift. Since the bangs are not rigged, it was no problem moving them around to fit the hair. I have kind of a fivehead, so I almost always need bangs!

Coldlogic put out the cutest party dresses last week! I’m wearing Merry in Emerald since it IS the Pantone color of 2013! I just love this dress. It’s a simple, classy party dress and, as you all KNOW I love, you can dress it up and down in many ways.

Collabor88 is still going strong, and you’ll want to stop by to get Maxi Gossamer‘s Patience heart watch necklace, Marukin‘s Dolce & Frais poses, and the Snowy City Loft by Barnesworth Anubis.

Happy Shopping!

Christmas Cutie

If you haven’t heard, an awesome fundraiser is going to be held for Second Lifer Sway Dench. You all might know Sway from the cuteness she creates – like cookie bears! You can read up on why the event is being held over here on the Together For Sway blog. Updated: Here is the SLurl for the event! Over 50 of SL’s best designers are taking part in this awesome event, including Funky Junk!

Style - Christmas Cutie - Front

The Noelle house is just about as cute and Christmassy as they come! It’s a small home with a large living area, a smaller downstairs room, and a spacious upstairs loft area. There is also a great back sun room!

Style - Christmas Cutie - Back

Together For Sway starts on December 15th and I’ll update this post with the SLurl when the event starts. Be sure to shop, get some awesome stuff, and help out one of our own! See you there!

So Really I Better Scurry

Hello readers! Did you miss me? I know, probably were too busy shopping to notice I was gone, right? I don’t blame you a bit! Sooo much goodness has come out in the past week!

Style - So really I better scurry

Collabor88 is unbelievable this month! I’m so happy with the Chaud dresses from Ingenue, I hardly know what to do. I’ve said it time and time again, but I adore simple pieces that you can dress up or down in so many ways, and this fits the bill! I dressed this one up with the Baboushka fur collar and fur hat from Maxi Gossamer at C88. I love all the fluff! And Fashionably Dead has some awesome Knee High mesh socks [the tops are mesh, not the actual sock part] that I couldn’t resist wearing. My thighs might get cold, but who cares when I look this cute, am I right?

Also at C88, Trompe Loeil has the cutest little mesh winter cottage called Frostbite! Because it sits on its own snowpile and has trees, you really could just put it anywhere! The inside is basically just one room and has a fireplace. Cozy!

You have more shopping to do, and so do I!

Here In My Deep Purple Dreams

Collabor88 is open! If you like fun, colorful, kitschy things – this is definitely the month for you!

Style - Here In My Deep Purple Dreams

Trompe Loeil did this awesome Dreamy Genie bottle and oh my God, is it cool! You can fit a bunch of your friends in it, and it comes in different colors and in both adult and PG versions.

My lovely lilac Cindy shoes are from Ingenue and I can’t call them anything other than adorable! I love a great wedge, and with the sweet little bows on the tops, they’ll be making a lot of appearances on my feet!

D!va brings us the Norma hair, a messy curly short style that makes me want to just put my fingers in my hair and play with the curls all day. The hair comes with 2 different bangs.

In non-C88 news, last night I had a nice little conversation with PXL skins designer Hart Larsson. What a sweet guy! I’ll admit that I’m not really very familiar with his skins [I tend to find a skin I like and stick with it for ages] but he introduced me to his Kate skin. I just love it! It has a very cute face and lots of makeup options. Total love!

Oh My NOLA

I’ve been to Louisiana several times, but I’ve never made it as far as New Orleans. Luckily Barnesworth Anubis brought a little piece of New Orleans to us for Collabor88 with his New Orleans Studio skybox!

Style - Oh my NOLA

I’m still rolling around in fantastic new releases from Coldlogic. The Keach sweater dress is just so awesome. It looks like something I’d wear all winter long because I’m usually freezing to death.

Pink Fuel finally released the Kumi skin last night! I had to rush right over to grab a demo and then go right back to buy it! I’m in love with it, so expect to see me in it a LOT.

Gotta go do more shopping!

Paperwork Builds

William Weaver has been a Flickr contact of mine for a while. I’ll admit, I’m probably the worst Flickr contact ever because I kinda suck at commenting, but I do try to keep up as best I can. He’s kind enough to favorite some of my pictures on occasion, and I always try to keep up with those who are nice enough to like what I do.

Last night I was doing my last “web round” before bed and noticed on Flickr that he had a link to his marketplace store – Paperwork. AND he had some really cool photo skyboxes! Not only are they cool, but they’re FREE. I got them all and today got to play with them.

These shots are totally raw except for cropping, rounding the corners [don’t sue me, Apple], and adding my signature. The lighting is all done within SL with the help of the builds.

My computer is not the best or anything, but as you can see, the skyboxes make it really easy to take some great shots! And it’s really funny because the builds themselves, just in the regular light, don’t look like much of anything really. But if you download the Windlight setting William has offered on the marketplace pages, all you have to do is use that setting, turn on shadows and local lights, and boom! Instapretty! On that last shot, I used the mirror water, put the build just under the water, and used one of the Windlight settings provided in Firestorm. I think it turned out nicely!

Check out Paperwork and get your free cool builds today!

Living At The Vintage Fair

I’ve always loved vintage homes. When I was younger, my older sister used to decorate with all this stuff she’d find at thrift shops and she’d create amazing things with what others would consider “old junk.” I’ve never had the luck she’s had in finding the best old things, but luckily in SL, I can have my vintage style without having to sift through peoples’ used china.

At the Vintage Fair, Funky Junk has brought us the Salinas house. It is too adorable! Of course, I always say that about Funky Junk houses, but I always mean it! There are two bedrooms and a sunken living room, along with the bathroom, dining room, and generously sized kitchen. You can choose to get it without a garage as well.

I learned how to type on a typewriter. Setting it between pica and elite, hearing the satisfying CLACK CLACK CLACK of the keys, it’s definitely a whole different ballgame than typing on a computer. What Next‘s Nouvelle Study has the cutest little typewriter on it! Oh, and a rotary phone! There are plenty of cute animations in the set, too.

And finally for today, you should check out the RemiRetro furniture set from Bella Rose. There’s all kinds of cute pieces in it, and the colors remind me of something you might find in the Brady Bunch house! I think my favorite item in the whole set might just be that clock! Or the radio! Or… well, it’s all so cute, I just can’t pick one favorite!

I don’t always wear mesh clothing. I do probably 95% of the time these days, but sometimes, you just can’t beat some nice texture layer clothing, like the cute Denim Vests from BOOM for Stumblebum, and these lovely LaceBack tank tops from The Sea Hole.

Barnesworth Anubis came out with a really gorgeous skybox for this month’s Collabor88. The Stockholm skybox comes in both a furnished and unfurnished version. I just adore the bookshelves!!

If you use the unfurnished version, the new Laura living room mesh set from MudHoney is just the perfect set for the skybox!

There are many cute pieces in the set, so you’re sure to love putting pieces of it in your own home.

And the livin’ is easy

Another Collabor88 post! This month’s round is so amazing, I almost can’t stand it.

Style - And the livin' is easy

Kyoot brings us the very pretty Whitehaven Beach Dress, which is partial mesh. For those of you who claim that mesh doesn’t fit you, these types of dresses are a great option because the mesh “flap” works so much better than the typical prim flap. I love the lace texture work on the front, and the Garbo Graduated combo necklace from Maxi Gossamer pairs up with this nicely.

Trompe Loeil always does such great mesh skyboxes and the Sunbleached skybox is no exception. It’s very well made and simply gorgeous! Plus it will only run you about 60 prims, so if you’re looking for a summer home or just a place to get away, this is a great choice.

Collabor88 is open now, so head on over!

Mad Glam

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m one of probably 4 people in the world who doesn’t watch Mad Men. So when Trompe Loeil released the NYC66 apartment for Collabor88 and people told me it was a recreation of Don Draper’s home, I could have been told it’s Tony Danza’s apartment and not known the difference. But what I DO know is that it’s awesome!

Style - Mad Glam

All mesh, mostly furnished, and only 260 land impact! Amazing! It’s also more of a masculine home, so you men out there are sure to love it.

Glam Affair released a couple of great things for Collabor88 this month! The Zoe dress is a lovely little mesh number. You could easily pair this with boots or heels, or wear it over leggings or even jeans. So versatile!

The Mia skin is quite pretty, although not my normal style. I really love the bright eye makeup to match this month’s Collabor88 theme. Here’s a close up shot.
