Say My Name – LOTD #259

LOTD 259

Standing in the shadows, she hid her face.  “What’s your name?” he asked.

She lowered her arms slowly. “Whatever you want it to be,” she answered.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not gonna lie, I’m totally stoked about this picture.  😀

I love playing with lights and shadows and I am so pleased with this way this one came out.

I really did no editing to it, other than cropping and adding my signature.  All done in-world with a projector and windlight.

Yesterday I finally made it into the Whore Couture Fair (thank goodness for Seraphim, so I can make my shopping list, and get in/get out of laggy events!) and picked up this fabulous outfit from Abrasive.

It comes with system layers and all manner of appliers.  The body stocking is separate from the top/bottom, so there are lots of options for wearing.  I also found these fantastic heels from Essenz at the Whore Couture Fair.

Essenz is one of my favorite shoe designers, and when I saw these, I had to have them. I know I will get lot of use out of them.

Exposeur still has their sale going on, and one of the items you can get is this amazing prop, called ‘Girl at the Window.’

I ended up using a pose that isn’t part of the prop, but it still looks amazing. Right now, all the props at Exposeur are $100L or less, so run over and grab some of this fantastic stuff!

Last Look – LOTD #253

He called out to her; she looked back, a question in her eyes.  She saw his face and smiled sadly.

Turning, she slowly walked up the stairs and out of his life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s always nice when you are sorting inventory to stumble across a gem of buy you’d forgotten all about.

While searching for an elegant updo to go with the dress, I found this uber-glam style from EMOtions hiding in my inventory.

I recently picked up this gorgeously elegant dress from Tiffany Designs at the Designer Circle event.

Maitreya issued a new update to their mesh body, and that has spurred me to try more applier-based clothing.  I still don’t have all the ins and outs of wearing applier clothing figured out, but I’m getting there. 😛

I found these fantastic laced heels from Essenz, which I’ve had for some time, but hardly ever worn.  I have so many shoes – but they are so fabulous!

Amazing what I can find when I go searching. 😀

The pose is one of my own – I’m currently only selling them on Marketplace, but I’m hoping to have an in-world location shortly.

It’s finally fall weather where I live, and though I am not a fan of the cold that’s coming soon, I enjoy fall.

The leaves are starting to turn and fall and it’s no longer so hot you can fry an egg on the sidewalk. 😛

I love snuggling under a blanket with some hot chocolate and a good book.

I couldn’t find a blanket, so I settled for some warm pie from a stand and a cup of hot coffee.

I’m still sorting through my black hole of an inventory, though I think I can finally see some progress.

The hair from Exile is from The Fantasy Collective (I think – I’m horrible at keeping track of purchases!).

I’m always on the lookout for a great updo.

The jewelry pieces are all inventory finds while searching for accessories. 🙂

I picked up the dress from Loordes of London at a FLF or Steals and Deals weekend sale, I can’t remember which.

The fabulous boots are from Essenz, from the last round of My Attic.

The pose is from Belle Poses, and the coffee mug is included with the set.

It did take a bit of adjust to make sure all my fingers were visible, but I managed. 😛

The photo was taken at LEA29, the Watercolors in the Rain installation.

The sim is really beautiful – stop by and have a peek!

Have You Been to My Attic?

My Attic is one of my favorite events and it’s going on now!

It only runs through the end of the month, so don’t miss out on all the fabulous deals – everything is $95L or less.
My Attic 2a

There are tons of fabulous items, including this fence from Repose with 6 built-in poses (pose 6 shown here).

Or you can grab this cute autumn step frame from Cheeky Pea – this is the dark version.

If you’d rather shop for clothes than decor, never fear.

My Attic 2b

You can pick up these fabulous Alabama shoes from Essenz, one of my favorite shoe designers.  I love the thick, chunky heels.

The Angelique skirt is from K-Code, and is a perfect complement to the Gitana silk shirt from Mimikri (seadust color shown).

Both the skirt and shirt are available in many different colors.

My Attic 2c

For the finishing touch, pick up the Equestrian jewelry set by Cae.  It comes with earrings, necklace, and two bracelets.

My Attic is full of fall goodness, so make sure you pick up all these gorgeous deals before it closes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve had this look put together for two days, but I haven’t felt well enough to take a picture until today.

I’m not back up to full speed yet, but I am making progress, I think.

While searching for someplace to take pics, I found Crestwick Island.

I love how it’s decorated and landscaped – I will definitely go back to take other photos.

This cute little dress is another one I picked up at the Aushka & Co sale.

I paired it with these yummy heels from Essenz – I think I own most of the store now.  😛

The hair is Sugar from Exile, from the Sugar & Spice pack at the Arcade.

A short and sweet post from me today – I’m off to find some more pain meds. :-/

I’ve been wandering all over SL lately, taking photos like mad.

I haven’t made it to many events in the last week or so, but I still have plenty of goodies left in my shopping bag to show off. 🙂

I picked up this smexy dress from Garbaggio at the Color Me Project – lime isn’t usually one of my favorite colors, but this dress was too yummy to pass up.

I love this updo from Exile, and I’ve worn it often.

Throw in some killer heels from Essenz (out at the Festival of Sin II) and I’m all set.

I did go back to the cart sale at The Wash and pick up some more skins by Lumae.

I am love with how it easy it is to change skins with the Lumae appliers!

It’s the beginning of a new month, so there will be a whole new round of events starting – I better get ready. 😛

LOTD #194 – All Attitude

Her piercing blue eyes didn’t miss anything.

She stopped in front of the car and assumed a pose that was all attitude.

I’ve been a busy girl lately.

I’m working hard on new projects, but I did finally find the time to make it to a couple of events.

I’d never been to the Festival of Sin before, so I enjoyed walking around and seeing everything.

My favorite shoe store, Essenz, had a gacha for their gorgeous Boca Raton heels, so I couldn’t resist.

I’m a sucker for shoes, what can I say? 😛

I also managed to get into the Vintage and Cool fair (not an easy task, mind you).

I love vintage and retro styles, and I will be going back several more times before the fair closes, I am sure.

On my first trip, I picked up this cute little summer dress from G Field.

I love the white ruffled bib and the bow.

G Field also has a free gift out of some cute polka dot slingback heels, so make sure you don’t miss those!

Vanity hair is a new-to-me store, but when I saw this retro beehive hairdo, I knew I had to have it.

Vanity also had a $1L gift – a cute little tiara that works perfectly with the Moonriver hair, so I grabbed that too.

A quick search to find a suitable retro sim and voilá – instant sass. 😀

LOTD #192 – Work, Work, Work

LOTD 192

She tried to occupy her mind as she posed.

She’d been standing in these awkward positions for hours now and her feet were killing her.

What she wouldn’t give to be able to fling off her shoes and dig her toes into the nearby sand.

The last few days have been a blur for me.

I have so many irons in the fire at the moment that I am going crazy.

However, I think I made some progress on projects this weekend, so I should be in good shape this week.

I hope. 😛

I finally made it into the Festival of Sin and the Vintage and Cool Fair, so I’ll have some finds to show you later this week.

If you go to the Vintage fair, don’t forget to keep an eye out for gifts!

I haven’t had a chance to open everything yet, but there are some nice ones. 😀

For now, I’ll settle for sharing another pair of shoes from Essenz (one of my absolute favorite shoe stores).

I love these sexy peep toe heels and this new dress I picked up at Entice (on sale!) matched perfectly.

Some fabulous hair from Lelutka and some accessories from Maxi Gossamer and I’m all set.

See you around the grid!

“Who’s there?” she asked.

Her sightless eyes looked right through him.

I’m trying something new with this post – embedding my picture from Flickr, rather than uploading it directly to the blog.

I think I figured out how to remove the annoying script add from Flickr that plasters their logo all over the photo, but we’ll see.

So far, I can see that it does save uploading time (which was like 20 secs, maybe).

I’m not sure whether it’s really saving me any extra work beyond that.

I still have to add all the tags and groups in Flickr, and then add all my tags and categories on the blog.

However, I did upload the picture to Flickr at a much larger size than I usually use, so if you want to see the photo in all it’s large glory, just click on it, and it will magically transport you to my Flickr page. ;-P

This look was fun to put together.

I’ve been wanting to blog these amazing shoes from Essenz (currently found at The Gacha Garden) for a while now.

Today I was over at Entice (a new-to-me store) and looking at some shoes for Secret Wednesday, when I found this amazingly cute dress.

As soon as I saw it, I knew it would match my shoes perfectly.

The hair is one of the latest releases from Truth (my all-time favorite hair store) – I love the fun, flirty braid.

This adorable seat and puppy are courtesy of Bee Designs from their gacha machine at The Cosmopolitan Room.

I try not to play too many gachas – but in this case, every seat was adorable, so no matter which one I got, I’d be happy.

Bonus that it has a cute little puppy, because I love dogs. 🙂

The current round of Cosmopolitan ends on August 16, so you only have a few more days to snag one of these adorable seats for yourself.

Maybe you’ll get lucky and get an adorable puppy of your own!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m still in the process of organizing my mess of an inventory.

I’ve done so much shopping in the last few weeks it’s crazy.

I have stuff I forgot I had!

I went to the last round of My Attic @ The Deck and picked up some really neat items at some crazy prices.

Like this pool from Winx & Flair.

At only 95L, it was a complete steal.

Who doesn’t want/need a pool?

It comes with several different colored towels and cushions you can rez, along with a cute splash effect.

It was the perfect backdrop for this amazing bikini from Luxuria (also at My Attic).

I’m wearing the system version here, but it also comes with appliers for your mesh bod.

The necklace is another great find from Yummy at No21.

I love charm necklaces and this one is just adorable. 😀

Although it’s a poolside pic, I couldn’t resist adding these shoes from Essenz.

To celebrate a FB milestone, the San Jose heels were given as a group gift.

My eyes are from Dulce Secrets from this round of Designer Showcase.

I love the color and the reflections in them.

The item that really inspired this look was this amazing hair from Argrace.

I saw someone wearing it on a post on ASN and I just fell in love with it.

I love the wet, fresh from the water look.

I knew I had the perfect prop from oOo Studios – a towel with poses built in.

If you’ve never been to oOo Studios, you should go immediately – she does some really amazing poses.

The towel is also texture change, so it is a very versatile piece.

With my summer winding to a close, I thought I’d take the chance to spend some time by my virtual pool.

Now all I need is a good book and a frozen drink!
