I suck!

Ok, so I dropped off the face of the planet. It's not my fault! I got a new job in RL, which means I'm no longer working from home, which means I have so much less time for SL now! But things are evening out, and I'm hoping that will fix itself.

For now, my new plan is to blog weekly. Daily just isn't possible. I'm also going to try to focus on events and gatherings, though I'll still be doing fashion credits. I spend too much time on my homestead now, when I can be in world.

In the meantime, I haven't been able to take many photos recently, but here's one that I submitted to the Vanity exhibit at the Dominion. It's a great show, and I'm so happy to be a part of it.

This is also probably my favorite look right now. The skin is Leah from Glam Affair, and the Hair is Truth, but I don't have my client up (I'm at work) so I can't do full credits. Anyway, just a random, pretty much unedited shot because I can. Enjoy!

And I'll see you back here this weekend, when I can do an actual entry, hopefully after finding some mischief in-world!

52 Weeks of Color, Week 5!

How are we on week 5 already?! This year is flying by, and it's a little confusing for me. But at least I was able to find something in Patina, thanks to RezIpsa Loc!

And apparently, I already had eyes in something very close to patina, which worked out awesomely! I'm having more luck finding eyes and makeup that match the color than clothes! But look at me being all honey badger about it:

OMG, Run!!

PurpleMoon has just (in the past few hours) released Valentines Day editions of three amazing gowns, and one jewelry set. Each is priced BELOW normal, and only fifty copies of each will be sold! I was just there, and one of the dresses is almost half sold out already!

Argh, stupid small pictures. Click through, you know the drill. :P

 The jewelry set is gorgeous too. So gorgeous you might not even notice that my eyelashes are adjusted funny. Oops! What can I say, I was in a hurry, I don't want you missing this.

Theoretically, this link will drop you right in front of the Valentine's Day display. Happy shopping!

52 Weeks of Color, Week 4!

Took me long enough, huh? And this week's look is... simplistic, at best. I knew right away which gown I wanted to use, but the rest of it just refused to fall into place. Oh well!

Poulet Koenkamp created this gorgeous gown for the winner of her Essence of PurpleMoon contest, which I am definitely entering again next year. It comes in bunches of colors, of course, but this was the one I fell instantly in love with, and it happens to work perfectly for this week's challenge

And then I paired with... I don't know, some stuff. The eyes are my favorite addition, and they're a gift from Fashism in the latest edition of TooSexy magazine - you can pick up a copy in the Fashism mainstore. The skin and hair are ones I've had for ages, and the nails, of course, Mandala. Click through for the full sized version.

Here's hoping for a little more inspiration next week, for the color "patina." (Really, Luna? Meanie! :P)

Back to LOTD, apparently

So, as some of you know, things have been nuts for me in RL lately. Good nuts, just keeping me busy. So I haven't had much time to shop, let alone blog. But I have a couple of hours free to roam the grid right now, and haven't settled on the 52 Weeks of Color outfit I'm doing this week, so you get a look of the day!

A friend IMed me today asking if I knew where to get cute, cheap clothes. I didn't have anything quite as cheap as she was looking for, but I was reminded to go to one of my favorite inexpensive-but-adorable stores, Apple May Designs. And of course, while I was looking on her behalf, I had to shop on my behalf.

You can wear just about anything with this dress and look cute, so I pulled on some much-loved sandals that I've had in m inventory forever, threw on a skin of the same type, and a new hair from Exile that I am just loving, available at the Dressing Room now (or is it Dressing Room Blue? You'll find it.). The jewlery has been blogged before, except for the bangle, which is actually a cleverly disguised leash holder, made by a friend at the Dominion.

All in all, I'm happy with the look. It's light, fun, something a girl from ANTM might wear to a go-see, and you'd be amazed how often that dictates my clothing choice. I hope you enjoy, and stay tuned for a study in Iron. ;)

52 Weeks of Color, Week 3!

This outfit was such a blast to put together, after I realized I had the pants already in my inventory. Of course, that was after a full week of frantic shopping, and purchasing quite a few things I will never wear again. But so it goes. :P

Oh man, the pictures are sizing really small again. Ah well, click through and all that.  Anyway, the pants were a free gifts from Deviance, ages ago, and I kept them because of the texturing, not the color. I'm in love with almost everything Deviance puts out, just because of the intricacy and clarity of the textures she uses. Even just the lines at the edges of her clothing layers - crisp and clean every time.

I may need to do a post just on Deviance... but that's another day! Or later today, if I'm feeling motivated. Today, we're looking at everything I put on that could possibly be called electric indigo. And one of them is another chance find in my inventory, this awesome eyeshadow from Rozena. I love the subtle star patterning in it, and it goes beautifully with the eyes I picked up from Poetic Colors just for this occasion. On sale, even!

Oddly enough, the lingerie was the hardest thing to find in a nice, vibrant indigo. But I couldn't pass up this cute piece from INDI Designs, I'm sure I'll be wearing it a lot.

Thanks again for restarting the challenge, Luna, it's so much fun! Can't wait for next week (even though IRON is going to kill me!).

Rusalka, by PurpleMoon!

Poulet Koenkamp has done her first release of 1012, and it is gorgeous! This long, flowing brocade gown is so elegant, I can't stand it, and in so many wonderful color combinations. This one screamed January to me, but I'll be back for more, I know it.

I love the fit-to-flare skirt, it's my favorite style here and in RL. And the sculpted top was a breeze to fit, though the combination with a skirt layer did overlap a bit at the hips. A down side of SL, where EVERY skirt (layer) makes your butt look big.

Oh, and hey! If you want to try out sizing the sculpted top, hurry down to the main store now, because the PurpleMoon group just hit 11,000 members, and Poulet released a gift for the occasion - a cocktail version of the Rusalka dress, in a gorgeous dark purple!

Now I will say that the skirt was originally a lot longer. Almost down to the middle of my shins. But I prefer a shorter cocktail dress, and thankfully Poulet doesn't put goofy restrictions on her resizers, so this was a breeze to adjust. And still lovely!
