A work in progress…

August 16, 2014 at 2:08 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

So I have this outfit I wanted to put together mostly focused around these shoes I got from last weeks’ FI*Friday.

>FamelessChic< Ainsleigh Pumps -iridescentl-

>FamelessChic< Ainsleigh Pumps -iridescentl-

This was not my first attempt but I thought I would record my progress cause I love these shoes. I do have a complaint though. The shoes only came in one size and there was nothing but the two mesh box prims in the folder. Pretty bare bones packing it seemed but probably because the designer was pressed for time. If the size of the shoes were a problem I would have inquired more about it but they are fine. Taking a look briefly at her blog/Flickr there are some other items I might go looking for in her store when I get a chance.

So this is the ensemble I am starting with:

:: Miss Canning :: [ Chloe Knotted Shirt ] and :: Miss Canning :: [ Chrissy Pants ] XS

:: Miss Canning :: [Chloe Knotted Shirt] and [ Chrissy Pants ]

In Progress_001

 I should note that the blouse was the White version but I tinted to match one of the colors in the shoe palette.

And as you can see I also experimented with lighting and shadows. This is my first ever pic with shadows! My RL bf showed me how. LOL My intention was to start some tutorials but I’m not good with reading instructions much. Some will say I’m not good with following them either…

 

Obviously I need accessories and some makeup but here are the stats so far:

  • Hair: Magika Rewind with the optional string
  • Feet: Slink AvEnhance Female Feet
  • Hands: Slink AvEnhance  Casual

Fabulous in Flora

May 3, 2012 at 8:47 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

My friend Bonadea made this dress. I did not even ask for a free copy. As soon as I saw it, I had to get it. It comes with a mesh mini dress plus a flexi skirt for the formal gown look. You get two looks for 400L. I love the shade of purple the way the long skirt flows and that you really get two dresses in one!

I didn’t really style it so you could pay attention to the dress. I’m sure you can imagine lots of ways to complement the look.

The dress has the fabric texture of a nice, soft velvet or suede that falls snugly yet gracefully over your curves into a delicate narrow bell skirt that flows beautifully when you walk.





























In the close up you can see the hand-painted flourish of perfect pansies in shades of purple and pink to complement the deep rich shade of royal purple.



















The design is repeated on the back side which is a detail not all designers might think of. It’s a sexy, low lag mesh mini that will impress the rest of the room whether you are coming or going!

















So put on your favorite heels. There are many shades of purple for matching convenience. (I hate it when it doesn’t look right unless your shoes are the exact shade of the color of your dress) Mix and match your jewelry add a touch of makeup and sexy hairdo and you are ready to dance the night away with your favorite people.

Enjoy!

Guilty Pleasure

January 18, 2012 at 11:26 am (Uncategorized, Virtual Worlds General) (, , )

My lates guilty pleasure is Tumblr. Mine is blacked out today because of the SOPA protest but please visit my musings when you have time any other day.

Most of these sites state that if they are a copyright infringement please inform them and they will remove the image. Seeing as I am not making any money on my blog I’m not sure if it would fall under fair use. But I should put that disclaimer.

Because I love wikipedia I’ll also link to their definition of the SOPA protest.

I’m annoyed because I can’t figure out how to add html to my side bar even though it is supposed to be simple.

Acoustic love

February 18, 2011 at 7:07 pm (Uncategorized)

warning: sappy content

“It hurts to want everything and nothing at the same time.”

Valentines Day has come and gone. It’s funny how things happen so quickly even when they have been building up over time. I must say I am thankful for friends whether or not they come with bells and whistles because above all they are my friend. So this is for the little part of me inside that wished for more.

[The best version of this song is actually 37 minutes into the Tabula Rasa episode of BtVS Season 6. This one from The Lake House is pretty close. Now that’s a movie that will rip your heart out. Geez!]

Sometimes the most beautiful things come without all the bells and whistles and I call that acoustic love.

I love you too sweets. You make me feel like I’m living a teenage dream.

“My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance
And don’t ever look back
Don’t ever look back”

“Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I
We’ll be young forever”

Playing Barbie… seriously this time.

May 1, 2010 at 11:27 pm (Uncategorized)

So I’ve been on Second Life for a year now and dating Evan for nearly as long. When I started SL, there were so many things to learn. Ironically (or not) dressing my avatar was one of the first and for a girl who played with Barbie dolls long into her school years, that took a while! Don’t most people spend the first several hours of their second life, learning to move around and getting freebies?

I first rezzed at the Fashion Research Institute. Literally, my idea was to learn to design clothing. Once I got to NCI and learned about other classes I could take, I had visions of myself building and creating classes. Didn’t take one. Distraction, for me anyway, is a frequent problem. Perhaps it is exacerbated by the fact that everywhere you go there is usually a dance club, LOL. I started SL on April 2. Met Evan at The Shelter on April 4 and that’s all she wrote. 🙂

I spent a year mesmerized by dancing, meeting avis, and exploring sims. Every activity required a change of clothes – that was half the fun – so there was also a constant searching for the best freebies. Then while searching google for more information about second life, I came across a blog and my world changed.

In her blog, Natalia Zelmanov, did more than I could ever imagine doing with my own. She provided a “getting started guide, tutorials, and exposed me to… shopping! That’s right – actually spending Lindens for clothing. And wow, were those (albeit virtual) clothes, awesome! But she said it best in a comment: “SL was a confusing mess of clubs and weird places for a newbie.”

So now, a year later, I look up and realize that I while I did (develop a very healthy inventory and) meet the man of my dreams, I did NOT do anything I came to do.

Quiet evening at home

So my first rezday has come and gone. I’m a bit older and a bit SL-wiser. I have, along the way, discovered that making clothes and building is more complicated than I thought. (Props to all the designers out there) SL is a little bit more complicated than The Sims LOL.

I have also learned that I really enjoy meeting avis from all over the world; SL has a rich fashion industry; and I would love nothing better (after a nice quiet evening with my sweets) than to help promote (marketing being my RL gig) any of the great designers I’ve discovered.

So what does a girl do when she loves fashion, needs people interaction, and has got (can afford) a great body? She attempts to get in to modeling. Well at least this girl does. So this time, I’m playing Barbie… seriously this time.
