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.

In The Fall

In The Fall

I’m in love with autumn. It’s the best season. I picked up some amazing new planters from Hearts Garden Center. They are all season, with texture changes and customizing via HUD. They come in a variety of sizes, making it easy to green up your space with seasonal color, and fill in dead areas. These feature birch trees which you can also buy in a separate set as well and are all season. I’ve mixed them in with my Studio Skye Enchanted Woods, and Blowing Leaves. I’ve got this adorable seasonal bench from Cheeky Pea, perfect for autumn. It comes in a variety of styles and with pillows.

My outfit for my autumn walk in the park is full of some of my favorite purple tones with nude accents. Nude, and Buff have been colors I’ve been obsessing over for nearly a year now. I love wearing them, bonus when I can pull it together with this soft, muted purple tones. A bit ago, my cell phone buzzed me awake with a notice that Maylee Oh (The Secret Store) had just started streaming on Twitch. I rolled out of bed, and grabbed a cup of coffee and watched her make this sweater. It almost makes it feel like it’s bespoke. The sweater comes with an attached undershirt that’s color change, and optional elbow patches that are color changeable as well. I’m wearing the Slink fit for my Slink Physique body. I love it when designers create in addition to standard sizing, the fits for the various bodies. I’m wearing the Jackie Pants, from the Lazy Sunday Collection from LaVian & Co. I love the tailored look.

My accessories are in nude as a soft contrast. The A.U. Dix Leather Bag is from Rowne I picked up as as a gacha item. My shoes are from Essenz, the Utah heels worn on my Slink high feet. I love the colors they offer on HUD 2, it’s a collection of my favorite soft colors. My hairstyle is the new Barbara hair from LeLutka. They just released a bunch, and I mean a bunch of hair. Go grab demos. I love this one, and love this tone from the Browns pack. I love this auburn tone, possibly their old Soy Sauce which was my favorite tone ever.

Sun, Shade, Sand, & Sweets.

Sun Shade Sand and Sweets Framed 1

Lot’s of event shopping is going on, lately it’s where the majority of my shopping takes place, not that it’s because of the event, but because of looking for new to me stores, and new releases in general.  Reign and 8f8 are ‘new to me’ stores I found at Kustom9 and The Seasons Story events. 8f8 has this cute gatcha out at The Seasons Story, it’s 88 Sweet Life Bakery at $50 per play, and the rare is this Sweet Life Bakery Tram, while the rest of the gatcha items are sweets, and baked goods, and related decor. I have my duplicates out for sale at LilBit’s Orphanage Yardsale, it’s the table with all the champagne on it, if you are looking for cakes etc. The Mochi Bears were too cute. The tran comes with 10 animations (6 singles, 4 couples), and on and off lights.  This pose, is not a part of the tran is from oOo Studio.

My hair is new from Ploom, called the Madison. It features an option bow with texture change hud featuring a wide variety of colors and prints. I’m wearing Izzie’s Maci skin and makeup appliers on my Emma mesh head from Slink, and a manicure/pedicure from Set 202 from Flair on my Slink mesh hands and feet.  My shoes are Chunky Plats, from Reign. I love this shade, they call it tan, I’ve been referring to it as buff since March cause I’m obsessed with this color at the moment. I like the little zipper on the back of the heel, and that it comes with a hud to toggle Silver and Gold Metals, and either a matching colored base, or a wood base. These shoes are super hot in the wood bases! Made to use with Slink’s Avatar Enhancement Mesh Feet – MID.

I’m wearing Katatonik’s Daffodil Dress in Light Green, which is currently available at The Seasons Story. It’s a cute paneled sundress, available in a number of colors, with either matching flower inset or coordinating. It’s mesh,and I am not sure if she’s using standard sizing and using her own terms for it, but it includes thin, average, curvy, and divine as sizes. I’m wearing the Average size from her store, where I usually wear a xs/s in standard sizing depending. I eyeball this size as a small/medium hybrid that borders on small it’s a bit more generous in the bodice while a modest waist, and a ok for curvey hips in the skirt.  My jewelry is mesh, and a cute little set from Izzie’s in creme. This set was originally released at The Liaison Collaborative’s The Boutique (Minimal Nouveau theme) in March, and is now available in her mainstore, and if you’re a member of the VIP group there is a cute gift of this is pink for members.
