High angled bob, and I love how long it is in front.

I’ve styled some new releases together, Emery’s St. Lucia leather pants, with this sweater from B.C.C., the back of the sweater, which I totally should have photographed, is low with a tie. I love it as we see so much of our back in SL, it’s nice to have that detail there. I’ve styled it with Livalle’s Rhiannon platform heels, and Minimal’s ABC necklace and bracelet.  To see what Sasy is wearing, check her out on her blog, SasyPants.

Prelude & some WP/Flickr tips

22729428251_62d75404c7_z.jpgPrelude by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

So, I put together this outfit with some new and old clothes I have. It’s for a chilly, but not too chilly fall day. I’m really into layered textures (fabric – not photo) and this makes the cut for me. I’ve titled my post as I usually do after a song title, it’s an instrumental by a band called Bag Raiders, I recently found. It was kinda odd to change my blog title after the fact, to include “some WP/Flickr tips”, which might have left people saying “whut?” to the Prelude.

When typing up this post, I noticed Flickr has recently changed, providing only the BBCode, instead of BBCode and HTML. This was irksome, and I am not happy, but whatever. Flickr has really gone downhill since Yahoo purchased it, and the new changes have not been user friendly. I don’t think they really grasp how people use Flickr.  So, faced with new change, I found a code converter.  BBCode to HTML will let you do exactly what the title says. Just grab your BBCode, and paste it into the box, check mark any settings you want and convert! Voila! Copy and paste your HTML into the Text Tab, and go back to the visual tab and hello!  This does leave the name and account holder info underneath your photo. It could easily be removed if you are more HTML savvy than I, but, after consideration I think I like it. It easily, and quickly cites the photo reference. Many times friends and I will blog each others photos when we do posts together and this makes sure everything will get properly cited. If your citation appears as close as mine by the photo, at the end of my GIF you see I put my cursor in front of the title of my photo, what isn’t shown is I hit enter so it would appear below my photo.

You can still select the HTML in the Embed Tab on Flickr, however it has a string of HTML that looks a mess on blogs that you have to use. Just don’t select any of the options like banner, header, etc. Select your size and copy paste. Or just you the BBCode – HTML.

See my animated gifs below for a reference as to how it works. The website also shows simple HTML codes that you may find useful to know for a fast edit.

While I’m at it…I know some people haven’t really used HTML within Flickr before, and they’ve also made it hard to find this information when it used to be right there under the description box under your photo. But I was slick enough to save the link to the Flickr: Allowed HTML page for future reference. Should this link ever become disabled, refer to the below screen shot. (I’m an old dog who doesn’t like new tricks – sometimes) At least this will be handy until we get used to BBCodes. This HTML is for use on Flickr for formatting your descriptions on your Flickr photos.  I’m also including two samples of how you might find this useful. It’s nice and tidy.

I Had This Thing

I Had This Thing

Mixing and matching with some thing that have been in my inventory, some recently acquired, and some new releases.  Exile just released this fantastic updo. The Countess, at The Fantasy Collective. I’m wearing them with a new release from Essenz, the Stockholm ankle boots, which are available at The Seasons Story event. I love the leather lacing up the heels and back. I recently picked up this oversized knit sweater at Gizza which was released earlier this year. It’s a fantastic sweater, a nice super thick cable knit. It’s designed to be worn without any mesh hands, and use alphas to hide your arms for this awesome hands in pocket look. With purchase you get a 3 color HUD. I’m also wearing some of my favorite leggings. They’re made by Maitreya, and come in a variety of fabrics and colors making them something that looks fabulous even though they’ve been around for years. They’re mesh, and with purchase you also get the couture variation which doesn’t stop just at the ankle but continues down into a boot which is a really hot look.

Day at the farmers market

Day at the farmers marketI just picked up the London skin from The Skinnery at The Chapter Four event.  It’s comes with a skin, and LeLutka mesh head appliers. I love all the cute freckles.I’m wearing it on LeLutka’s Leda head. I’ve been so busy with real life, that all my goodies from May are like brand new discoveries in my inventory. I picked up this cute shirt from E-Clipse that I’ve been wanting to wear. It was at Shiny Shabby last month. I’ve styled it with Blueberry’s Tila skirt.  I have gotten to wear my jewelry also picked up in a gacha from last month’s Shiny Shabby event by Nomad & Coquette, and they’ve been my favorite pieces recently. I also blogged more of the set here.

Day at the farmers marketI’ve styled this outfit with Bushu’s Kali heels. They were released at My Attic, last month.I like how well they go with my Chicago Tote I picked up at ANE.  It has these cute headphones attached that come in a variety of prints, and you get ALL the prints when you buy a bag color. I love that! I picked up most of the items you see at gacha’s.  I’m at my little bit of Tuscany from 8f8’s
Primavera in Toscana Set from a previous round of the Arcade.  I’ve added in 8f8’s current Arcade gachas from the Green Grocer’s set, which includes the truck you see here. It’s one of the rares, and features a number of single and couples poses in it, and the engine starts! It’s really cute!
