Love it when it fits

Love when it fits click to enlarge

Don’t you just love it when you put an outfit together and it all just fits together. We are so accustomed to wearing full mesh outfits sold to us somewhat as a kit. We are presented to wear such and such top with these or those pants/skirt. All created by the same designer. Otherwise you can have bulging through or odd looking overlap clothing. I love pulling outfits together from different designers. It helps us stay unique.

This outfit was created around the new Ingenue Amelia boots for Collabor88. I remembered that Neve had leggings with boot helpers. The boot helper is on the hud and helps tuck the leggings into boots. Brilliant of the Neve team to add. I wish more designers would incorporate this. These leggings fit perfectly inside the boot. I then decided on The Secret Store Sweater to compliment the rest of the outfit. My hairstyle is Truth Solace. You can find it at We Love Role Play event.

The backdrop is the Trompe Loeil Ceres Outdoor Scene that was released for fall. I simply removed the leaves and pumpkins. Then I added a snow texture to the ground and it was ready for winter! You can see it here at Lo Lo where you are always welcome to come and take your pictures.

Fall is the Time of Year for …

Fall is the time of year for watching the changing of leaves. Reds, oranges, and yellows add warmth color to mother earth. Pumpkins come out to do their duty as family fun, decorations, and edibles. I can’t go through fall without a slice of pumpkin pie or a pumpkin spice latte (PSL). As the weather gets cooler we start to pull out our sweaters and leggings to add a bit of warm coziness to ourselves.

The adorable little scene was created by Trompe Loeil. It comes with the color changing leaves on the tree, a swing with sit animations, bench with sit animations, lamp post, shack, bridge, and pumpkin pack. The sit animated bench has color change blanket and pillow. The scene is already put together for you. And each piece is also packed individually.

Caroline (unedited)(click to enlarge)

Glam Affair created this gorgeous skin named Caroline. Of course I had to get it. The skin is so beautiful even without the included make ups added on. I didn’t edit the picture at all so that you could see how pretty it really is. The cute foxy hat and hair are new from Truth Hair. The hat and hair are color change by hud. Zenith has this cute autumn coat with long shirt at Kustom 9. The hud gives you a choice of 9 different shirt colors. The super cute necklace is from a gacha at The Epiphany. I was just happy with whatever necklace came out on first pull. The gold and silver version are included in the pack.

The mesh leggings were released and blogged last month. But expect to see them again. Each pack comes with 4 colors so they go with practically everything. And the Rosie Boots are from fri.day in a special FLF Sierra version.

Jewelry Trip

Jewelry Trip(click to see full detail on flickr)

I am going to try and focus at least once or twice a month on jewelry. I would hope that I know a thing or two about jewelry in SecondLife since I made it for over 10 years. Finding hair and poses that show off your jewelry can be hard. It is great when you can find a hair that shows off the ears for your earrings, and doesn’t cover up too much of the chest where your necklace lies. I’ll try and help you find ones that work.

The three mesh necklaces in this post are from ANE. The first necklace is The Fool necklace found at the Tarot event. This piece is a little edgy with the spikes. In the middle, the Moth Wings Let it Go necklace can be worn with the words or just with all moth wings. Very pretty and easy to wear with most anything. My favorite of the three is the Botanical necklace. I really love delicate necklaces and wear them in real life. This is also more the style that I stuck to when I made jewelry.

For these shots I used !bang poses 475-479 pack, which can be found at the Shiny Shabby event. The poses I chose for the shots have the model standing upright with a slight turn to the left and the right.

I have never worn Moon hair before, but I loved this one so much that I had to have it. This hairstyle is swept to one side allowing one of the ears to showcase your earrings, and it has ample room for the necklace on the chest. I bought this at Uber in the variety pack because I needed all of the colors.

The off the shoulder dress is from Tee*fy. A dress in this style works really well with necklaces that lay on your upper chest. The dress texture was too busy for the long necklace. The piece gets lost in the chevron print. I chose my Tres Blah Angora sweater to wear with that. Both the dress and the top are at Collabor88 for a few more days. Very few. You should be able to find them later at the mainstore, and you can find the locations on my slurls page.

Because I also love to decorate! The rectangular framed pictures are from Trompe Loeil at FaMESHed. The rest of the decor is from Apple Fall. Caroline is getting ready to go on a trip. She has her map out for last minute planning, luggage packed, and is grabbing a quick bite of a muffin before hitting the subway.

Room Additions

Room Addition

I’ve shown you this room before. But, since Collabor88 opened I have added a few new things to it. First is the Trompe Loeil Amelia Loveseat. It comes in three colors and they are loaded full of animations. Also, the pillows are texture change. I really love this piece. Above the loveseat is a Theosophy Beaumaris Mirror. I can see this mirror being used in several different room settings. The gorgeous curtains are from Half Deer. The roses on it are color changing, which makes it perfect for matching your bed set. MishMish and her cute little bears in the suitcase sitting on a bench are irresistible. Dust Bunny collaborated with her on this cute bear set. One last thing I am showing you here is my Schadenfreude Deer in the Forest of Leaves book. I could never cut a book up like that irl. But for SL it is cute and no real books were harmed. The other things in the picture have been blogged before, but I’ve listed them again in case you missed it. Happy dreaming! Don’t miss the items that are discounted for Collabor88. The month is almost over and so is this event.

Attention to Detail

Puppy Love

It is amazing that I can get anything done with these two loving all over each other. They really are best friends. Yet, I was able to bake an apple pie and about to get laundry going. These new Apple Fall pieces can be found at The Chapter Four. What I admire most about Apple Fall’s work is the attention to detail. If you look at the bottom of the pitchers you will find the reflection of those 2 rose petals and the wire. Even the scale has reflections on the glass. The hot apple pie steams realistically. You can almost smell the fresh baked pie.

Inspiration, as noted above, is something or someone that influences one, makes one want to create, a good idea. The Inspiration Point sim, the residents, and especially this hunt are all of those. Right now until December 31st, there is a fantastic hunt at Inspiration Point. The participants are The Secret Store, MishMish, Kirin, Tee*fy, LaViere, Flowey, Pizza’s, Jim, Intrigue Co., Pilot, and Boogers. You’ll find 35 bunnies hidden around on the sim. The prizes that these creators have made for us are absolutely amazing! Everyone really should participate in this annual event. There is a hud showing the location of the bunnies on the map, which makes it a whole lot easier. It isn’t and exact location, but you will know that you’re in the vicinity.

In the spirit of the holidays and gift giving Exile and Birdy have gifts set out for us. The cute and fun Exile hair in Candy Cane comes in several different styles. Birdy has the Elsa skin in Pure as a gift for her VIP group. I LOVE that it comes with the Slink skin applier hud.

Inspiration Point Hunt teleport. Ends December 31st.

Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year! This year I’m having a Blue Christmas, but not because of sadness. Because I also love the color blue, and I just happen to have some new and really pretty blue decor. llorisen has these really nice skyboxes at the Arcade. They are perfect and have scripted shrubs, floors, windows, and curtains. It is just one big room, but it has an upstairs/downstairs kind of separation. I think it is a great loft. Inside I decorated it with the coveted pretty blue dust bunny christmas tree. I imagine that there was a blue theme going on at the Arcade. Also the Apple Fall deer has a blue scarf on, the PEACE letters from Trompe Loeil are blue, and the little kitten inside the gift box from granny has a blue blanket. This has really been a great round of Arcade. I love everything that I have from the gachas.
