OOTD + Podcast – Sasy Scarborough & Whimsy Winx Discuss Demos in Second Life

49605615942_3a41feeadc_3k.jpgOOTD + Podcast Sasy Scarborough and Whimsy Winx talk Demos in Second Life by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

My outfit/look of the day is a mix of old and new items. You may need alphas for this look, and they are not included with the items so I made my own.

My skin is made by Izzie Button who has updated for BOM! I was happy to find her Daphne skin also included an eye makeup that went well with my outfit. Izzie’s a great shop, she always is forward thinking about resident needs and tweaks! If you need  new makeup, a fix, a sunburn, age, or wanna catch pink eye check out her store.

Sasy and I recently chatted about Demos about what we like, don’t like, and other thoughts regarding them. Check out our podcast, either on Sasy’s blog, or on Youtube – links below.

OOTD + Podcast – Daily/Popup Sales Events

Sasy and I recently did a podcast on Daily/Popup Sales events.  Event creators, designers, and shoppers all are part of the cycle of shopping, and it’s in everyone’s best interest that a certain flow is maintained. I think we touched on a few areas where there is a lot to reflect upon.

Linden Living: Moving In

40779447573_226655b1fa_k.jpgMoving Day by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Hi everyone. So my mailbox is fixed, and I’ve got a proper Linden Home again. Now, comes the fun part, deciding which home style I like, and getting my furniture in.  This has been pretty difficult. I’m leaning very heavily on the Winchester, and currently moving into that one for now.

The biggest issue I see is how to divvy up enough LI for the space so I can have a bit of everything I think I need. I’m very sure I want a kitchen, living room, dining, and outdoor recreation. It’s the upstairs bedroom that is conflicting me, I would like a bedroom as well as a work room which I can use it for both.

46956662414_afa8a83b8a_k.jpgWindow Treatment by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Initially I decided since I had 5 areas to decorate I would evenly assign LI to each space with a starting point of about 70 LI per space. Seemed simple enough, if I was happy with an area that was still under 70 LI I could reassign additional LI elsewhere or keep as I might want to spawn cars as needed.

This is actually quite a challenge for me considering I’ve lived with nearly whole sims to rez out as much as I please for 10 years. I’ve already started installing a kitchen, and plan on working it out from there.

The Lindens keep teasing us with news that more homes are coming soon. I’ve been watching the map and they certainly are making progress. They’ve also updated to include security orbs, as when they went live the ban lines were ugly and as you can imagine, that just ruined the esthetics here quick. So the solution was to feature security orbs, and there are quite a few rules for them as we don’t want to suddenly find ourselves returned home from the street on a bike ride, or sent home when flying over (personal aircraft are quite popular here). So that should help at least keep my hot tub clean. For more information about the security orbs check the forum announcement from Patch Linden here.

Also, shout out to my fellow neighbors on Bellisseria – keep it weird. The random t-rex, the police chases, broken down buses..ya’ll make my day. But stay out of my hot tub.

Ya know, you’re probably thinking right now, why is does that place have a slurl and not this place? Look, do you see all those stores? I didn’t plan on having to slurl all of them. I certainly didn’t think that out well when thinking ooh I can have an outfit change and take another photo. I haven’t blogged in like 6 months so I’m rusty and over ambitious. But I assure you, all of the above stores can be found in search or marketplace, and if not there they’re closed. I might feel guilty and come back and populate them more but search is right there.

The Trust Fund

The Trust Fund

So Sasy and I had to take time off of vacationing to head home to our country estate and put an appearance in, to keep the trust fund flowing. You know how it is. We’re dressed in LaVian for the occasion. You can read about what Sasy’s wearing at SasyPants. I’m wearing LaVian’s Simone Jacket and Skirt. They have a fantastic hud to swap colors, and trim. I’m also wearing Essenz’s Amsterdam heels. I love these shoes so hard it’s not even funny. They’re available at Shiny Shabby at the moment.

Sunny Day

Sunny Day

With summers end nearly here, I will be sad to pack up the beach house, but I always look forward to autumn. I’m making sure I wear as much of my swimwear as possible to get summer out of my system. Today I’m wearing cool bikini I picked up at Mon Cheri. I snagged the fatpack, so I can mix and match all the amazing patterns. The HUD not only lets you chose the pattern on it, but the tassels and cords as well. This swimsuit fits like a dream on my Slink Physique mesh body, with a fit mesh version especially for it. I coordinated my manicure to match with Flair’s set 49, cause that’s how I roll.

My hair is from LeLutka, and is amazingly long and wavy. There is another hair from the same release available with hair to the side, that I blogged here. I’m wearing League’s Luna skin, with freckles option on my Slink Physique mesh body, and LeLutka’s Aria mesh head. Sunkiss is my favorite skin tone from League, leaving me all over tanned like I’ve spent all summer under the virtual sun.

Island In The Sun

Island In The Sun

If you haven’t been to the latest round of Collabor88 you need to go. It’s their birthday round, loaded with tons of stores participating. I picked up Soy’s Dreamy Hanging Chair there. It’s perfect for finishing off the summer in. I’m wearing Mon Cheri’s Sachi Flaire Dress, it comes with sleeves (not shown) also. It’s available in a variety of solids, and these fun tie dye prints.

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

This was summer of fantastic releases that really filled out my wardrobe, and my house full of beachy things.  I picked up this cute boho blouse at Mimikri. She’s updated her store, if you haven’t been in awhile. Nothing but mesh now, and she always has something neat there. I really liked this top, and am wearing it with Blueberry’s Elina Shorts. They have a side string, and a really nice shape to them. I bought the fatpack, so I can wear them with anything. The fatpack HUD lets you easily pick from all the colors, and even recolor the side strings.

My hair is from Slink, who recently installed a new store. The rebuild is contemporary, sleek, and still has a bit of a retro feel to it. I really like it.  She’s redefined the interior space to specific sections making the place very easy to navigate. My Trinidad sandals are from Essenz. She’s has so many fantastic sandals, but these are my favorites.  My beach house is full of all kinds of fun gacha’s I played all summer, and some favorites I have picked up over the past year or so at a variety of events, and stores.

Hair Fair 2013 – Vanity Hair

Hair Fair 2013 - Vanity Hair

I’m wearing the new Boys Will Be Boys hairstyle from Vanity Hair released at Hair Fair 2013. It’s a high volume updo, with bun, that comes down in two pigtails, wrapped with hair, and ending in front and in back with huge a huge curl.  I’m wearing it with Tres Blah’s Frilly Dress in blush from this months Collabor88.  It’s a romantic little sleeveless dress with ruffled bodice and hem, and bow tied to the side.  It’s available in a variety of colors and prints. I’ve accessorized it with LaGyo’s Isabella earrings, and necklace in pale, mesh flowers on gold cord. I’m also wearing G Fields Ribbon Slingback shoes in salmon. They’re nice slingbacks, and each shoe has a menu when you click it to turn the front and back bows off. Making it a really versatile part of your wardrobe.  My manicure is a peach to flamingo pink ombre polish in Set 31 from Flair, I’m wearing it on my SLink Avatar Enhancement Hands, with skin appliers from Izzie’s to match my Izzie’s Jill skin.

Hair Fair 2013 - Vanity Hair

The other two hairstyles Vanity Hair released at Hair Fair 2013 are Fantastic Girls, and Sonata. Fantastic Girls is a voluminous pouf that ends about shoulder level with soft barely there curls. It would be great for formal wear. Sonata is an intricate looped updo that frames the head from the back, another great formal wear hairstyle.

Til The Clouds Clear

No hiding the fact I like purple in this outfit.  I really like the new mesh Jessy Studded Shorts from Erratic, they are available in a variety of colors, but I really like their dip dyes.  Great textures, detail, and fit.  Wasabi Pills also has a new release, at FaMESHed.  Noriko is the cutest mesh blunt cut bob, with color changeable barrettes via HUD.  Another current event item is the mesh Half Tucked Tee from Tres Blah I’m wearing.  It’s currently available at Collabor88, but not for long, as they are due for a new round soon.  Grab it while you can, at a great price, or visit their main afterwards.   I finished off my purple lust with Maitreya’s mesh Alexa Wedges.  I’m wearing all the accessories it seems, from tons of stores,  Boom’s cute Take It Easy Tote, which is available in a variety of designs, this one being the Bar Code.  I’m wearing Yummy’s Mixtape Necklace, and Hodgepodge Beaded Bracelets, with a necktie from Coco Designs.  This necktie is part of the Puff Sleeves Top in Yellow, available in their discounted department located on the top floor of the store.

Camille

Camille @ Mayfair

A new session of Collabor88 just started, and is cutely themed in “French New Wave” a fusion of Mod and romantic leanings. I picked up this cute outfit called Camille from Tres Blah there.  It’s a lovely bulky cable knit jumper/sweater, and skirt outfit done in mesh.  It’s all one piece, and is available in a number of colors/patterns. Shown here is pale pink, which is a lovely light peach/salmon pink/sakura pink jumper/sweater with white floral skirt.  I picked up the greens in the floral skirt with my Long Scarf, and Moxie shoes both from Maitreya. The scarf is available in a number of colors, and is made of sculpts, and flexi prims that move with you.  The Moxie’s are a fun shoe featuring many options from 2 styles of over the knee socks in a number of colors, and even a shorter sock add on, textures, and shoes are menu color change.  I accessorized with a bag from the latest mesh release from R.icielli.  The Yuse bag comes in a wide variety of colors, and is laden with detail, which I like.  I also like that it is available in so many many colors just as is the rest of their collection of bags, and clothing, I seriously want it all.  Another new release I am wearing is the Trend hair from LeLutka, a soft mesh style that drapes over one shoulder.  I loved the look of this hair, as I did with all three new hair styles they just released so much I had to snag them in my usual Light Brunette pack and another in Light Blonde.  I also purchased this cute ring at Collabor88 from Whippet & Buck, it’s non rigged mesh so you can mod, and available in a variety of colors in one pack.  I shot my shadow photo at Mayfair, an incredible mesh build done by the Celoe team, featuring main stores for Celoe, and Mon Tissu. You need to visit!
