I Think I’ll Miss You Forever

I Think I'll Miss You Forever

Spring is definitely in the air, and the items at recent events are really reflecting that. I love all the nude and light pastel tones that come out in spring, it’s probably one of my favourite colour pallets so I always get excited when I see something similar as one of the monthly themes at C88.

I got together with my bff4life, Harper, to take this pretty shot with a bunch of stuff from Collbor88, and tried to give it something of a vintage feel. The pose we’re using is actually a couples pose from !bang, of course I had to sit on the blue ball coz I was tallest!

Let me start with this amazing hair from Tableau Vivant that I’m wearing. There is never enough wavy or curly hair in SL, in my opinion, so I always get very excited when I see one. There are 2 versions of this hair available at C88, with and without a floral headband attached. Very boho and perfect for spring.

I loved the simple, system layer bandeau tops that Tres Blah released too. Obviously I’m a huge mesh fan but it’s nice now and then to get something like this that you can use for layering, plus as I said a couple of weeks ago, I’m really into cropped tops at the moment.

Skirts and dresses were huge this round at C88. We styled this picture with the nude ones available from Secret Store (on me) and Nylon Outfitters (on Harper). The Secret Store skirt has a really nice HUD feature that has 3 different lace options for the top layer and I’m always a fan of extra options!

The shoes that we are both wearing are a new release from Just Design, out today for The Seasons Story. They come with the mesh socks included, which can also be worn by themselves. If you want to wear the shoes without the socks, then you need to make sure you have the JD MyFeet, as they are made to be add ons for them. As well as the wooden platform and heel, there’s also an option to change the texture to match the shoes and if you get the fatpack then all the colours are interchangeable via the HUD. The fact that you can wear the socks separately and with other shoes too, is a huge bonus. I got these shoes a couple of days ago and I honestly have not taken them off since.

As far as the background goes, the balloon swings are out at C88 by Flowey, and of course they’re animated. Great decor piece or pose prop. The little chicken toy that’s sitting on it is one of several cute, little collectibles from Marmelade at the Fiction and Fables event.

I have so much cute and pretty stuff in my inventory right now that I really need to run and take more pics. So, bye!

Spring Treasure

The insanely talented LouLou Teichmann and I talked last week about doing a picture together. So when I saw this Elven Council set from Kalopsia, I knew it would be perfect. All credit goes to LouLou for creating this amazing scene and of course a big thanks to her for posing too.

The set comes complete with the throne, chair, arches and flying leaves and will be available from the 4th of April at We ❤ RP. The chairs and throne come in gold, black or white and all the items will be available seperately too. Not only are they great decor for RP sims, but perfect props for pictures like this. The leaves alone are a great item to tuck away in your inventory if you're into taking pics, saves a lot of post editing work!

Another great item for photographers is this new, editorial style hair from Argrace. We added the new Dahlia flower hair piece from Glam Affair at FaMESHed, to complete the pretty, spring look.

Not Always Rainbows and Butterflies

Not Always Rainbows and Butterflies

During a conversation with Miss Oakley Foxtrot last week, in which we paid each other entirely far too many compliments and gushed over each others work to the point where I’m sure we both felt awkward, we decided that a collaboration pic would be a nice idea.

So this isn’t just a picture of us together, it’s a full collab. Oakley came up with the inspiration and took the raw shot, and I did the post processing. It was pretty fun to edit, as well as a little challenge for myself since I tend to use the same wind lights and settings a lot and this was something different.

For Oakley’s credits, just click on over to her amazing blog, Thought Classic!

Waiting For Spring

Waiting For Spring

Yep. We’re only 2 weeks into January and I totally jumped the gun with this spring themed pic, and you know what? I’m not even sorry! Spring is my absolute favourite season and I’m ready for it to happen like, today.

I wanted to show you guys this new sweater from Deadwool who are participating in C88 as a guest this round. I love the lace detail on the shoulders and the fact that you can wear it with or without the collar. Yep I could’ve worn it with a scarf, some pants and boots to make a more wintery pic, but I love the combination of it paired with shorts and heels. This is a great item that’ll see you through the change of seasons easily.

Also added the new Lamb hair that’s out at C88, and beyond thrilled that they are making regular appearances there now. There can never be enough Lamb hair on the grid in my opinion. Another C88 item are the ritzy beads from Maxi Gossamer. I always buy beaded necklaces whenever I get the chance, even if I don’t need them right there and then, since they’re one of my classic go to accessories, and this knotted version fits in nicely.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week and don’t worry, I’m sure I have a few more wintery posts in me before I decide it’s spring already!
