Alphabet Challenge-E

Alphabet Blog Challenge-E

Letter E in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge was a challenge! I spent a great deal of time working out various looks with shoes that had an E.  Getting the right combination was finally solved when I settled on starting with En Svale‘s Cowichan sweater, and based my look from there.  That settled it was fun to use many items I had tucked away, like these earmuffs from artilleri, and this knit hat from epoque. I love this bag from Tokidoki and would love to have it in real life. My skin is Eva from Tuli, and worn with eye-makeup from ElymodeElikatira‘s secret boots were perfect, and felt I needed to add some socks from League in ecru, as my legs looked cold in my denim skirt from Emery with out them.

Alphabet Challenge-D

Alphabet Blog Challenge-D

With letter D in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge I resorted to pulling out some favorite items that have been in my inventory at least a year.  My first thought was hair from Dernier Cri, check out this favorite circa Hair Fair 2010.  I couldn’t resist using Digit Darkes, whose letter D became logos for her store. She may be gone, but she’s still a favorite in my closet especially her slip dresses…worn here as a shirt, under this cute chocolate houndstooth jacket from DeeTaleZ, with my Marni skirt from DeLa. I frothed a bit at the mouth when released their Dream Catcher bags, love getting to wear them out and about.

Alphabet Challenge-C

Alphabet Blog Challenge-C

Letter C in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge made me mixing and matching from a variety of stores. It took awhile but I am happy with my outfit. I used part of one of my favorite outfits from Last Call…Compliquee’s layered knit tank, under a store gift Hawaiian print shirt from Connors.  I continued the casual theme with Chinos from Maitreya, and Surf Co. wedges. I took liberties with the letter C by wearing a skin from a Chic event from Laura Hurley.  I love this casual look, and had fun putting it together.

Alphabet Challenge-B

Alphabet Blog Challenge-B

Letter B in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge was fun.  I had fun and used a number of B stores with my Bloom avatar.  Blue Galaxy‘s Stereo hair was a fun choice, I pulled in some color with my Array leggings from Bijou, and Suede Bootie from Coco in this bright purple. Dress it up with a fun sleeveless jacket from Baiastice over my Boom polo dress, and giant black gems from Ganked.

September Breeze

dress 3-vert

Sasy and I went exploring at a place she found. Bahia features prefabs, home decor, and furniture, across two lovely sims.  Worth checking out. Sasy blogged them here.  On our trip I wore this great long knit mesh dress from Jane, that I totally love cause its long, and in mesh it’s so fab.  Looking for a pain free transition to mesh?  Try the Firestorm 3.0.1  (Firestorm-Beta-Mesh).  I’ve been using it on the Phoenix setting, and love it to date. Similar layout to V1, layers of V2 and similar icon’d buttons, V3 mesh.

September Day

September Day

September is here, and I put together a casual look for it.   If you hadn’t already heard, Mesh has gone gridwide! I am amazed to hear many people haven’t heard the news.  You can download the new viewer (Viewer 3) that supports Mesh from Linden Labs, if you’re a fan of third party viewers Kirstens also has Mesh viewer (Kirstens S21(9).exe), and V1 lovers…Astra Viewer is mesh with V1 layout (no added layers of V2). I can never get the website to load lately direct download at this link.  If you’re using any other viewer you will not be able to render mesh items correctly.  For some great tips on making your own custom alpha layers, which will be really handy for modding mesh to your shape, or if you are using Astra, check out this easy tutorial Sasy put together here.  Free gimp download (it’s like photoshop, if you don’t have it) here.

I’m wearing mesh shorts from Jane. Jane put together a fairly large release of mesh clothing. Definitely worth stopping by to grab demos! They bend well with the body, and I loved the colors they came in, a cute look. Bukka just released the cutest boots, and they are available now in store, or grab them in the lucky chair!!!  To make it even better, they have a 50% off sale going on! I didn’t wait for the lucky chair as another W was waiting, instead I snagged them half price! As well as the cute jacket I am wearing which came with this cute fur scarf.  The boots are color changeable via hud and worth the full price.  I mixed in a the Ribbon Tied Tanktop in faded red from League, which features prim prims which you cant see in this photo, as well as the cute Wanderer Earrings she made.  I topped off with new hair from LeLutka, Oscar is a fun hair if you loved the Rykiel, you will love this, with extra braided pony tail attachment.  I love the attention to detail on this. I’m wearing new eyes from Amacci, who just released tons of new eyes called Gaze Eyes.  These are moss green, and I love them to death. Can’t wait to try out the many other shades she has.  Ploom has new poses out too, go see!
