Today has been a crazy day.

I’ve had so many interruptions and distractions while trying to get this post done, it’s not even funny.

Even though it’s been crazy, it’s been good.

I got to help out someone who needed it, I had a couple of new opportunities cross my path, and I’m still having fun. 😀

I’m a big fan of the Cart Sale by Fab Free, and I love that I’m able to find quality items for low prices.

This is another skin from Lumae – I’m in love with how easy it is to change skins.

They are so well done that I don’t even have to fuss with the neck seam in my photos!

The cute vintage dress is another find from the Cart Sale.

I love all the little details – the appliqué on the front, the lace on the sleeves, and the adorable bow at the waist.

The outfit was screaming for some vintage hair, and this cute pixie cut from Argrace was just the ticket.

Add some pearls from League, some adorable bow heels from Reign, and I’m ready for a night out on the town!

It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing these LOTD posts for 200 days now.

I’ve missed a few days here and there, but I’m proud of myself for doing it.

I’ve learned so much – both about blogging and photography.

Now, I’m off to finish my crazy day, and all the things still left on my to-do list!

LOTD #150 – Barefoot Escape

LOTD 150She leaned back against the ladder, brushing the dust from her skirt.

She loved walking barefoot through the grounds.

The parties were always so dreadfully boring.

Feeling Wayward

I had been in SL for about 4 years before I ever went on a hunt.

It was fun collecting items for free (or close to it) – a quick way to score some fabulous items.

I don’t do them much anymore, since I’m always trying to watch my inventory count. 🙂

However, I love it when a hunt (or event) has a gallery of items somewhere online.

I can browse the items without fighting through a laggy sim and decide if I want any of them.

Ok, it’s usually more like, “how many can I afford to buy before I start feeling guilty,” but still. 😀

So when I saw a couple of posts about the Wayward Hunt, I had to go check it out.

I headed over to their website and found a gallery of pics with the prizes.

Exposeur PropI saw a few cute items I could use and then I saw the shoes . . .

I picked up several items from the hunt, including several different poses, because, much like shoes, you can never have too many poses!

One of the items I picked up was this awesome pose prop from Exposeur.

Called “Girl at the Window,” it’s a photo prop with 8 built-in poses.

I love it, and I know I’ll be using it again and again.

I also picked up this amazing jewelry set from League.

League Floral Rocks SetCalled the Floral Rocks Jewelry Set – Darkness, it comes with a color-change HUD.

The necklace and earrings are fabulous.

I poked around in my inventory for something to wear and found this outfit from Pure Poison.

Add one of my favorite Truth hairstyles and done. 🙂

Last, but not least, SHOES!

Essenz - MumbaiI headed over to Essenz (a store I will be revisiting!) and picked up these amazing shoes.

Called Mumbai, I love, love, love them. 🙂

There are tons of items in the hunt, including home and decor as well as clothing.

I will be heading back out in the next few days to pick up a few more things.

I can always use decor items for sets – especially when they’re free!!

And did I mention – SHOES!!!

Happy Hunting!

LOTD #95

LOTD 95This cute little number is a costume I picked up at a Fantasy Collective Round (I think).

The top is a tad risqué, so I tried to find a pose that didn’t leave everything hanging out. 😀

However, I can certainly see using this in a routine.

Hair:  Wasabi Pills – Kira – Flaming Cherry

Skin: Eye Candi – Nina – Tone 4

Shape: Laqroki – Glow (modded)

Eyeliner: League – Wing Eyeliner

Eyeshadow: White Widow – Earth – Black/Blue

Eyelashes: Gaeline – Divina

Lipstick: Shine – Teeth Tattoo – Sexy

Costume/Hairpiece: Luas – Sia Blue

Pose: Purple Poses

LOTD 95 2Here’s another shot of the outfit.

This angle gives you a bit more detail of the front as well as the hairpiece.

You could even wear the top pieces with a mermaid’s tail.

Or skip the bra top for that ‘Irresistible Siren’ look. 🙂

LOTD #94

LOTD 94I love Victoriana and Sci-Fi, so of course I love Steampunk!

I picked up this darling dress from Anachron at Genre a few rounds ago.

So I started hunting through my inventory for accessories.

I was so stoked to wear these shoes – I got them ages ago from Eudora, but I love them.

I knew I was right not to toss them!!

Necklace: CPD – Steampunk Somniagraph Pendant

Bracelet: House of Rfyre – Noir Women’s Bracelet

Top Hat: Enfant Terrible – Antique Hat – Downtown New York

Pose: Tuty’s

LOTD 94 CUThe details of some of the jewelry and the nail polish deserve attention, so here’s a close-up.

You can’t tell from the picture, of course, but the eyepatch and the necklace having moving parts.

The necklace was CPD’s item for the SteamX hunt.

And though I don’t often wear nail polish, I knew I had the perfect steampunk polish.

When I’m doing these LOTD posts, it is sometimes hard to decide what photos to use.

On one hand, I like to do photos that show the items as they are, so that if you like them, you know what they actually look like!

On the other hand, I love playing around with all the windlight settings in Firestorm and/or playing around in Photoshop to ‘tweak’ the photo.

So this time I decided that I would just include both – since for once I used the same pose. 😛

The first two photos show what the items actually look like in SL.

Here’s my ‘tweaked’ version:

LOTD 94 2I’ll let you decide which one you like better.

LOTD #83

LOTD 83I’m having a blast styling looks with new items I’ve picked up.
