I often wonder what would happen if I just did a credits only blog post. We joke all the time about it, how people would assume that there was more being said by me not talking, than if I was to talk, because I generally talk so much. I wonder about that, if people that do read my blog would be surprised if I just suddenly had no words, would you ?
I was hopping around today and came across this store on marketplace, Amiable. I really wanted to see if they had more than their MP listings though, because you can never really tell if someone keeps their marketplace up to date or not, without visiting in world on occasion, or being up to date with their released through subscribo’s or group notices. I also wanted to see if this divine dress had any more options, as I was sold on the white, but I was still trying to choose between it and some of the florals.
The white won me over though, as there is a need for this style of dress in all white, that every girly girl needs in her life. There is alpha loading in the dress, and even though my hair is long and rigged at the front, be aware that the alpha in the hair will mess with the alpha in the sleeves – I photoshopped mine – but you can just wear different hair, because the dress is just that beautiful, but pay attention when demoing….
I love that most of the items at My Attic this round looked like they were all one set, but actually broke into wearable pieces in their own right. One such item is the gorgeous Maxi Dress 2 piece sets from Girl Thursday. You can actually see Whimsy with the top of the dress in the same colour HERE. The belt on the skirt and the way it sits, is just perfect for this sensational top from Tulip. Honestly that store kits you out from head to toe, when there a month or so ago, I was lucky to get out without picking up the whole store. The front of the top is just beautiful, but the back is WOWZA!
I also love that the colour matches perfectly with the Toronto heels from Essenz, another of the stunning sets of Slink Add-ons that they have created, and this brown is just lovely. They come in 6 colours the shoes, and if it is your style of shoe, then check out the fatpack pricing.
The Arcade is starting on Sunday, and all of SL is a Twitter, and a Plurk and a Facebook with chatter about it. The hair I am wearing today is the LA version of London to LA by Exile, and both styles are just too perfect as updo’s that can be both casual or glamorous. If you have not seen the shopping list for The Arcade this round you are going to need to start selling things and maybe even cash in a 401K or two ( I don’t really know what a 401K is, but they say it a lot on TV ) The collections are superb, and this time around I am going to be hitting machines harder than I have ever done in the past, because there is just so much want and need and needing to want and wanting to need.
I am super excited about the Nylon Oufitters collection, because I have recently purchased three items from her RL selection on Society6 and they are coming soon to my RL and I cannot wait. One of the items is actually in world with The Arcade items, it is the most awesome artwork, and I am so excited that I will be able to have it in both worlds. If you have not shopped her Society6 store for yourself, then do so for others, because I cannot imagine anyone anywhere not wanting something from this selection as a gift, I chose totebags as my purchases, but there are cushions, art prints, phonecases and so many more options, I think I am going to have to get a clock as well.
It was an incredible day running all over the grid today. The highlight was getting to talk to Essenz Shoe creator Senzati0n Domenitzo. Her store is full of incredible footwear, not only her own foot in feet shoes, but also recenly she has added Slink Compatibility and the styles are flawlessly beautiful. A fun and easy way to keep track of the names of the styles, is that they are all named after cities from all over the world. Today I am wearing Cancun, a stunning ankle boot open toed look with a multitude of thin straps from toes to ankle. The textures on these and all the footwear I managed to walk out with, are just superb…you will be seeing a lot of Essenz in the future from not only me, but anyone with a love of truly stunning footwear.
I am not sure how my style went from what I had on at the start, to how I ended up at the finish, but on our travels we visited not only SHE & HIM but also the Dark Style Fair, both of which are Flair for Events events…not to be confused of course with Flair the store I own :P. We had a great time, and the Cancun shoes are actually part of the She & Him event…..
I was doing my thing, and then got the oppurtunity to spend time talking with Cajsa and Whimsy, which is always a nice change from just listening to myself hum. I tend to hum a lot, I don’t remember ever doing it before, but since quiting smoking 5 years ago, it is all I seem to do. Sachi says it is because I am happy, but I think it is just to keep my mouth occupied between talking.
When Mina sent us this NEW hair from My Attic we all just dropped everything to rave about its awesomeness. For me this is a truly levelled up moment, but also such a wonderful modern take on a classic look, I love it. It has a great mix of Rock-a-Billy with a Punk edgyness to it. That is why the plaid was just perfect, the skirt is wonderful and part of the Tres Blah release for C88. I was so happy to find that the top that Lacuna released for My Attic fits it perfectly….
I totally stole Whimsy’s blog post look today. I was just arriving home and saw her in the lovely Tutti Frutti dress that is at My Attic. I love the looks of these dresses, and Whimsy has styled it up a treat, you can see it HERE on her website. One of the reasons for the theme for this edition, is because of the designers we have that are just such wonderful users of prints, and bold patterns. One of those is of course Tutti Frutti.
Whimsy is wearing the Prints version of the dress, and I am wearing the Printsess version – Yay for Mels made up word. I love the wrap around style, and it is such a lovely look for anytime of the day or night. Wearing the yellow, made it a must to wear some fantastic shoes I picked up on one of mine and Whimsy’s shopping sprees. They are the most glorious add ons for the High feet in this amazing style and fantastic colouring. The ankle straps are studded and chunky and you can make them silver or gold with the hud….
When I was little, I really loved watching ‘Land of the Giants” it was so cool a show, and then of course the ‘Honey I shrunk the Kids” movies were also a lot of fun. For some reason, when I saw these gorgeous retro pieces by The Loft @ C88 were modify, it was with excitement that I was able to resize them and play my own little setting of fun.
In RL I have a table and chairs similar to these, my chairs are orange and my table top is yellow, but I just could not resist the pink and black options of these sets. The texture work on these are perfect, glossy and well detailed, then of course the modeling of the mesh is up to the level you can always expect from The Loft. I really was glad that making them so big didn’t lose any of that detailing…..
The post I did earlier today was actually a picture I took yesterday, so apparently I had more photos in me for today. I saw this dress on Marketplace and just fell for it, and the fact that the whole store is on sale for 50L just made it even more exciting to share.
I was dressed and ready, knew the hair, the shoes, and knew I needed a cross necklace – no clue why of course, but it just was what I wanted – so to Mandala I went, well the MP page, as I was there anyway. Now this dress is a little bit of a cheat, by that I mean that it is a model for one type of dress, that was textured in a way to not show the other model attributes. So with that being said, you will need to be careful of water or other alpha like things. But it was easy enough to shoot, and I just love the style so much….
