Events, Events and More Events

 March is filled with great shopping events. Collabor88 is already open. Skin Fair 2014 just opened today, and for this week only there's an event called Fashion Pride Second Life to benefit the AIDS Committee of Toronto. My unbusinesslike but sexy pinstriped jumpsuit from 22769 Couture is a 100% donation item. The last day for this event is March 17th, so hurry over and shop to support a good cause.

It's Still Cold, BUT...

January was a ridiculously cold month with temperatures below zero degrees Fahrenheit in my part of the world. Then came February with a little warm up of temperature and an ice storm. My dog doesn't want to go outside in the back yard because there are two inches of ice on the back steps. Poor thing. This is all my way of saying I'm ready for Spring, though it's over a month away.

The new releases from coldLogic are a nice transition from bitter cold wrap-ups to slightly warmer weather clothing. I opted for classy black and white, but the color choices for this release include bright, cheerful Spring tones as well. The strappy sandals, also hinting of warmer days are a new release from Erratic for SLink feet. Maybe I can't control the real life weather, but here in Second Life, I'm ready to shed the coats!

Introspection

This week for her meme, Strawberry Singh has challenged us to look inward. I'm kind of pouty about it because with Shoetopia going on right now I really want to look at my feet not my soul. Nevertheless, it's a good challenge and I'll give it a go.

Meme instructions: Answer the following questions and don’t forget to leave a link to your post in (Berry's) comments.
  1. Regardless of your current number, how old do you actually feel? – Without telling my actual age, I'd say I feel mid-thirties. I don't think we truly hit our strides until then.
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? – Never trying, definitely. Unless it's parachuting out of an airplane.
  3. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? – I'd sing more.
  4. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? – I guess I try to do the right thing though sometimes it's difficult to know what that is.
  5. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? – I can't imagine being joyful as a simpleton, so I guess I'll stick with worried slightly above average.
  6. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? –You'd have to ask my friends about that. I try to be.
  7. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now? – Uh...yeah.
  8. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? – Anytime I laugh with a friend.
  9. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? – I never thought I would, but if you give me the money we'll test that theory.
  10. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? – I'd gather my family together and feed them all their favorite foods.
  11. What do you feel is the difference between being alive and truly living? – Being alive is getting through the tough times by putting one foot in front of another. Truly living is jumping off the cliff and trusting yourself to find your footing.
  12. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? – I don't think I'm afraid to make small mistakes. But mistakes aren't all equal. Some are damn hard to come back from.
  13. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? – I'd sing and dance a lot more.
  14. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? – A newborn? That seems to be a little soon to start offering advice. Maybe "Sleeping through the night is a GOOD thing."

Fall Colors

My favorite colors tend to be the earth tones of Autumn, so I was thrilled by the new four season set of trees from Studio Skye. Directly after that purchase, Autumn came to my sim! I'm also loving the earth color selection of 22769 Casual Couture's new release for The Liaison Collaborative Boutique. The pants are versatile and can certainly be dressed down with a sweater or casual shirt. The halter top keeps it dressy and living up to the 5th Avenue theme of this round of the Boutique.

It's MY Ice Cream

From the look in my eyes you can tell that Ayla and April are trying to wheedle my ice cream away from me. GO GET YOUR OWN! I'll even give you the landmark! This delicious confection comes from the Atelier Kreslo Ice Cream Festival. There are plenty of yummy flavors from which to choose.

Another delightful confection is the cropped tank top and matching flirty skirt from 22769 Casual Couture. It's their offering for the Gallery Gift Shop this month. Are you happy now? So shoo - do your shopping and let me eat my ice cream in peace. (wink)

Photo Safari

I'm on a photo safari with 22769's new releases for The Liaison Collaborative Boutique. I especially love the wraparound silk scarf top and the bangles. I'm also quite taken with PXL Creations' new Jade skin with its wide range of customizing choices on tattoo layers.  I'm wearing a freckled version of the skin with several fun makeup, eyebrow and mole tattoos! And of course, PXL Creation skins have optional appliers for our SLink hands and feet.

Something Old, Something New

I love this pay phone from 22769's Bauwerk Furniture.  It has built in animations to lean against, sit on or under.  I thought it would be fun to show the old and new technologies together and used Adorkable's Call Me pose complete with cell phone prop.  It also helped me show off goodies from Pure Poison and the wonderfully customizable PXL Creations skin, Sophia.  Sophia comes with lots of options in eye makeup, brows, cleavage, lipsticks and freckles.

In Bloom

Today is a good day.  In my real life I noticed a few pink blossoms on my cherry tree which means we will have Spring!  Of course last year it bloomed in February due to an unseasonably warm winter, but this year I'm so ready for Spring to begin.

In my Second Life it's a good day because I managed to put together an outfit, pose and setting to my satisfaction - trust me, it doesn't happen that often.  The silk blouse is from 22769 Casual Couture and the espadrilles from Gos Boutique - both currently for sale at Liaison Collaborative's Boutique.  The summery floral shorts are a new release from One Bad Pixel.  I featured the Gypsy caravan from Zigana in an earlier post.  It's still available at The Arcade Gacha Event.

Don't Think Twice, It's Alright

I go shopping all the time, so it's not worth mentioning, except to show what's new.  But when CLAY goes shopping - now that's something to talk about.  We went (ok, I dragged him) to The Mens Dept., a monthly event for men.  I talked him into the grey coat from DROP and a pair of the headphones from 22769.  He had nice new mesh jeans from FATEwear, and I thought he looked pretty spiffy in his new duds.  I might have dragged him around for a scarf because our sim is cold as you can see, but I really didn't want to push my luck. 

We felt a little Bob Dylan/Joan Baez circa 1963 in this couple pose from Diesel Works, so I named the post after a Dylan song released that year.

Listen

 I loved these headphones from the fun guys at 22769 for The Mens Dept.  With several colors and designs on the headphones to choose from, I chose the Seafoam Peens - those aren't musical notes, guys!

From 22769 with love


This gorgeous dress can be yours if you look hard enough. It's 22769's gift for the With Love Hunt which is well under way. I love the texture, how you can see a shimmer of pink through the black and of course the baby pink trim. I accessorised with jewelry from Noodles and you can find them in a range of colours at this months Collabor88. For the rest, you know where to look!

I bless the rains down in Africa


I've not been able to blog all week and I've a lot of catching up to do, especially for the Around The World Event that began on the 15th and the Gallery Gift Shop which started it's new round for this month.

The Lynette outfit from 22769 at TGGS, is a boho/hippie flavored combination comprising of flared pants and a blouse. I love the rich earthy colours, the top shows off ample midriff and the flowing pants are lush!

The hair is available at Around The world, it's from Amacci and I have changed from my usual brunette to a shade that would blend with the rest of my outfit. I just hope Dolly doesn't go in a huff with me for going red again!

Lastly the pose is the mini series, Strength, from !Bang and it's also on sale at Around The World.

The rest of the details you can find below. Ta ta for now.

Call Me, Maybe?


This dress is another stunning creation from our friends at 22769 Casual Couture and it's available at the Fair event which started on 20th October and runs 15th November.  I love the colour, the pattern, the detailed folds and creases and it hugs my figure perfectly! Nice one boys!

This is the first time I have used projectors in my pictures. It comes in very handy for indoor shots when shadows are impossible to get unless you aren't completely closed in. Very nifty I must say!

He's defanged, right?

 Sometimes inspiration strikes, sometimes it's just a striking cobra.  Whichever you see in this photo, it's thanks to the guys at 22769 who have really outdone themselves for the upcoming Cinema event. The headdress, matching dress and rigged mesh cobra are fantastic!  It's sure to be a great event, running October 15th to the 31st.  We'll try to keep you posted!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Jonquil by Dolly

Jonquil is a funny word.  I keep thinking I spelled it wrong, and when I say it I want to say it in a southern accent.  People up north just say daffodil.   I think I nailed the color anyway, thanks to the guys at 22769 Casual Couture.  This dress is one of their new items for Vintage Fair!  Thanks Paco and Manu!

22769 at the The Gallery Gift Shop


I know I am a little behind with this, as you all probably know I am on a little blogging hiatus, but if anyone if going to make me sneak one in it's the guys from 22769.  Here I am wearing a simple yet elegant gown, available at this months round at The Gallery Gift Shop.  You can also hunt for an envelope clutch bag to go with it. It'll be somewhere in the store.

I adore this little dress with bolero cardigan from 22769, designed especially for the ArisAris Summer Fashion Festival which starts today and runs until the 24th of June.  It comes in 6 different vibrant colours and I just love that the little cardie is part of the dress, no hassle of mesh sticking through mesh when you layer up.  To learn more about this event here's the link to the blog.
