I Think I’m Moving But I Go Nowhere

I Think I'm Moving But I Go Nowhere

Super quick post today coz I need to rush off for a long weekend, but I’m so loving this outfit that I had to share.

The skirt is a new release from Baiastice at The Boutique, with an array of different metallic colours available. I love high waist, knee length skirts, especially pleated ones. I’d wear them every day if I could, so this just fitted the bill perfectly.

I paired it with the new strapless, bustier top from Zaara, that’s out as part of their summer range. I bought several of these, since I can’t get enough of cropped tops, and these are beautifully made and textured. I also added the new chunky platform sandals from Reign that you can pick up at Kustom9 – which is fast becoming one of my favourite events.

Hope everyone has a good Easter, I’ll see you next week!

When The Sun Goes Down (and the weird questions meme)

When The Sun Goes Down

I might as well make this Summerfest week on my blog because there is seriously so much awesome to be found there! Not only does this event boast tons and tons of fab items from amazing creators, it’s also a great little sim to snap some pictures on. This is the second one I’ve taken there in the last few days and even with a whole bunch of shoppers there I didn’t experience any lag with my shadows on for pics.

I’m wearing this gorgeous new skin from Belleza that you can find there, as well as this 3D Flower bikini and hat which are both by Baiastice. Baiastice is definitely one of my favourites on the grid for mesh swimwear so make sure you check out these latest pieces!

Anyway, enough of the gushing, it’s been a while since I took part in one of Berry’s blog memes so I decided to add in her questions one today as well, since it was an easy one!

1. Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home) Collabor88

2. Does your avatar look like the real you? Not especially I don’t think.

3. Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid? Sometimes I wear a bra under a top but only to make it part of “the look” not because I think I need to be wearing it lol oh and I will wear panties if I’m wearing a mesh skirt that doesn’t quite cover everything. But other than those occasions, nope.

4. If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld? A sim, part of it for me to live on and part as a noob welcome area, but yanno, a really nice one and not something that was built circa 2007.

5. Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before? Yep, in my first few months of SL when I RP’d I found a store selling really fancy silks and I was forever going back and buying stuff, in the end I doubled quite a few sets without realizing it.

6. Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life? Umm, trespassing. I’m not a hardcore criminal like Berry who breaks into peoples houses but I’ve accidentally landed on random folks property a bunch of times.

7. If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be? I’m gonna say Marco, I don’t know him but I’m in love with his avatar and styling and in awe of his talent.

8. Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive? I think for me probably Onyx LeShelle from Maitreya, mainly because her creations are so just well, perfect, and were a large part of what got me interested in SL fashion.

9. What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done inworld? Hmm, lots of awkward moments that involve failed TPs, missing clothes, accidentally saying something in local that was meant for IM or in the wrong IM box etc, I don’t think I can pin point one as the most embaressing.

10. If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you? “You know that gravity doesn’t have to exist here right?”

Anyway, I’m out for the day, ciao!

More From Maitreya

Well I didn’t intend to make another post quite so quickly, but in true addict style I figured, “hey, I’ve got nothing better to do than sleep, right?” So here I am!

This is the new mesh top and flared jeans that were released earlier on by Maitreya, I’m actually too tired now to write more than…see how good they are?? Oh and! I love my butt in these jeans, I don’t know if they changed the shape for them but Maitreya always did a really good butt shape on the mesh dresses and skirts I thought, but when the skinny jeans and leggings came out I thought it looked a bit flat, however I personally think it’s a lot better in these ones, nice and curvy! Yes, I’m wearing the hat and hair combo again!

Also, 3rd blog post in a row for these SLink Ilena sandals…and I’ve had so many IMs in world asking where I got them from, if you don’t have them yet, why not?? They go with eeeeeeverryyyyything! Yah seriously, I might not take them off till October.

Some Like It Hot

Well I finally got round to blogging Chic2 today and I’m so glad I waited a couple of days because Maitreya had some awesome new releases aswell which happen to go perfectly with the outfit I’d picked up at Chic2!

If you haven’t been to Chic2 or haven’t heard of it yet (which I’m sure you have, but just in case!) it’s an event hosted by Chic Management to celebrate their 2nd birthday! Chic management is run by Keira Seerose and brings such events as Culture Shock and Vintage Fair to Second Life. They invited over 100 designers to the birthday event, all bringing an exclusive new item and it’s really a fantastic array of newness.

I love this mesh jumpsuit/rompa that I picked up at Chic2 by Ricelli. It comes in a whole host of colours and patterns, with lots of bright summer colours. Rompas have been a popular release over the last couple of weeks but this has got to be my favourite, I really adore the belt detailing on it.

Now on to Maitreya! I went and bought every one of their new releases without even demo-ing coz uh, it’s Maitreya and if you read my last blog you’d know I’m a total sucker for them. So to add to this outfit I wore the new mesh Siobhan hair, it comes with the hat which has a texture change HUD so you can mix and match it for most outfits and really it’s gorgeous for summer. I don’t usually wear a lot of hats because I’m too lazy to edit hair to fit under them, so this is also perfect for lazy people like me :D

Also new is this mesh shopper bag which again comes in a wide variety of colours and a couple of different patterns too. Again I don’t usually buy too many bags in SL, but I couldn’t pass this one up. I will point out that in my picture above, I had a huge fail where part of the bag got pixelated thanks to the wonders of SL and my stupid computer. I didn’t notice until I was editing and I really loved the pic apart from that, so I fixed it as best I could (yea, really need to work on those Photoshop skills don’t I??) but the texture does not look pixelated like that in world, believe me it’s gorgeous! So here’s another picture without the pixelatedness.

***UPDATED*** I received a message from Onyx LeShelle of Maitreya where she said that the pixelated part of the bag was indeed a fault on the texture that only showed up on midday light settings (which is why I didn’t notice it either when I checked it after I saw the picture as I was using different windlight by then) and she has now updated them and sent them out to everyone who had already purchased. I personally have never experienced a fault with a Maitreya product before, but this was resolved very quickly and I have to give a big thumbs up for their customer service.

Looking forward to blogging their other new items and it’s almost time for C88, yaaaaaay!
