LOTD #197 – Kept Waiting

LOTD 197

She paused a moment.

He was late; she loathed waiting.

She frowned, debating.

As I approach 200 LOTD posts, I find myself debating how to change them up and make them more interesting.

During a conversation with Yummy about literary devices (she started it, honest!), she mentioned that she had thought my captions for the LOTD posts were intended to be haikus.

While that was not my intention, I can see how my short captions could be interpreted that way – a ‘Katku’ as Yummy dubbed it. 😛

So, I’ve decided to write actual haikus (starting with this LOTD post) and see how it goes.

I’ve always liked haikus – I think the brevity and the rigid format appeals to the minimalist in me.

I’ll see how it goes – if nothing else, it certainly forces me to think more carefully about my word choices and imagery, which is good practice.

I’ve been on a vintage kick lately thanks to my repeated visits to the Vintage & Cool Fair, and now the FAD event has a round going with ‘vintage’ as the theme, so I shall be heading over there later.  There’s a cute poodle skirt I’ve got my eye on. 😛

I absolutely adore this hair from Vanity (another stop on my t0-visit list) and this dress from Dead Dollz is just gorgeous.

I love the bow, and the lace top is an applier for my mesh bod.

I must confess, I don’t like fussing with all the appliers. I find myself sticking to skins that are built-in to my Lelutka head and Maitreya body, and though I own a gross ton of nail appliers, I rarely use them, instead making do with the shades that are built-in to the Maitreya HUD.

I wish there was a way to insert/add new appliers into the HUD.  Sigh.  A girl can dream, right? 😀

The shoes are a MP find from KC Couture and were the perfect touch for this outfit.

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

I am constantly on the lookout for cool and amazing things I can use either in a routine or for a LOTD post.

I try not to buy the same things that you see over and over and over on fashion blogs/feeds.

Sometimes it’s hard not to, though, especially when it’s something as flat-out fabulous as this headpiece from Zenith, out now at We ❤ Roleplay.

WHRP ends on August 30 (that’s tomorrow, in case you want to hop over and pick up some of this gorgeous for yourself).

When I saw this piece, my jaw dropped and I had to have it.

It’s so elaborate and detailed and amazing and now it’s mine!

I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it (I bought it when WHRP opened on August 5th) and the opportunity finally presented itself.

When I saw this sign from floorplan for FLF, I bought it on a whim, thinking to use it in a routine.

Then I opened the box and realized it was texture change – done and done!

This amazing tattoo from Letis has been hanging around waiting for that same perfect opportunity – I love it when things come together. 😀

I added this fabulous hair from No Match that I got at the Vintage and Cool Fair.

Throw in a metal bra/thong from May’s Soul and voilá – Dangerous.

LOTD #195 – Purple Love

LOTD 195

Purple was his favorite color.

Lilac, violet, mauve, eggplant, periwinkle, plum, amethyst, mulberry, or orchid.

He loved them all.

It’s been a busy week for me, so I’m behind on my LOTD posts.

So, of course, when I sat down to work on them, my computer goes bananas and I have to spend over an hour troubleshooting and restarting to get rid of the (still) unidentified gremlins in the system. 😛

I did manage to make it to the Vintage and Cool Fair and I picked up this gorgeous corset dress from Mon Cheri while I was there.

I love pastels, and this soft lilac was one of my favorite colors in the line.

I don’t remember where I picked up this hair from Elikatira, but I love the long straight lines of it.

I’ve been wearing my IKON eyes forever and when I saw these new ‘electric’ blue eyes, I had to have them.

I still haven’t taken off my Lelutka head – I’ve forgotten what I look like underneath!

You can’t see them in this photo, but I’m wearing some super-cute vintage sling-back heels from KC – I’m hoping to feature them in a blog post over on I ❤ Shoes SL (my new shoe blog – if you’re a shoe lover, follow me over there!).

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend – there are lots of fairs and sales this weekend, so make sure you get all your shopping in!

Can you believe it’s almost September??!!

LOTD #194 – All Attitude

LOTD 194

Her piercing blue eyes didn’t miss anything.

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

He couldn’t help but laugh.

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. 😀
