Look of the Day

…because I was playing around with stuff.

LOTD28-2-2012

I was actually trying to pull a look together for the Alphabet Challenge. But while trying out several things, I suddenly found myself looking like this. I didn’t think it worked particularly well for the challenge, with me not wearing much at all. But it looked kind of nice, so I snapped a picture anyway. Add to that some tinkering and editing and you end up with this LOTD.

The skirt is pretty old, so it’s not mesh but sculpted. Which means you can pretty much only use it for pictures. Why I bought it is a bit of a mystery to me, because I usually don’t buy “picture-only” pieces. I must have had a bad day or something…

Dandelion

… week 9 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Dandelion

I did not like this week’s color. Not at all. Why, you ask? Because I do not like yellow very much and I absolutely hate dandelions.

Yes, I know they have a very cheerful color and those cute fluffy-looking seedheads. And I might feel like that too, if they didn’t take over my garden! Come spring, they pop up everywhere and if I don’t dig them out really quicky, those cute seedheads will make matters even worse. I swear, our lawn contains more dandelions then grass 😦

But anyway, I’ll stop ranting, before I start foaming at the mouth.

Those pants

… the pair that makes you look amazing, no matter what you throw on with them.

Those pants

That’s how the coldLogic team describes the pants that are part of their latest batch of newness. And I personally think they succeeded. The fit of these pants is perfect and the details are amazing. Exactly for that reason I show both the front and back. (Well, basically I couldn’t decide which shot to go with, but you won’t tell anyone, right?)

Also part of the newness is the shirt I’m wearing. The good thing about the new releases is that you can actually wear the items together. Usually when I try to wear two mesh items, like a top and trousers, they poked through each other. But these fit nicely together, actually making mixing and matching possible.

The new release contains the pants, in 2 variations and 6 colors each. And three different tops, also available in multiple textures and colors.

V

… week 22 of the Alphabet Challenge.

V

Another week, another letter of the alphabet. I won’t lie, I’ll be glad when we reach Z.

While this blogger challenge is interesting in a way, it just doesn’t leave me enough freedom to make truly satisfying looks. But because I’m as stubborn as a mule I…WILL… FINISH… IT!

Dark Raspberry

… week 8 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Dark Raspberry

After seeing this week’s colorswatch, I immediately thought of this sweater. But after that my inspiration ran completely dry. I had put a lot of my creativity in my Valentine’s post and I must have used it all up.

Joining Plurk this week, probably didn’t help my creativity either, because I spend a lot of time trying to find my way around there. Time I should probably have put into this post. Oh well, you can’t do it all 🙂

So for Dark Raspberry I went with this casual look. It’s a combination of old and new items. The freebies are pretty old and are probably not available any more.

Lost in Plurkville

… that’s how I felt today.

Lost in Plurkville

For months now I’ve wanted to get into some social media. I never felt a great need to do so. But I feared that if I didn’t get into it now, I would become totally prehistoric before long. So today I did what many Second Life residents seem to have done before me: join Plurk.

After some clicking and searching I ended up with a Plurk account and even a few friends! A big thank-you to everyone who welcomed this lost kitteh. I will be adding things and generally trying stuff out in the next few days. If I seemingly do or write something weird, it’ll just be me randomly clicking things 😉

But anyway, if you want to… add me? …friend me? …uhm well, you probably get my meaning… I put a link to my timeline up on the left side of this blog. Now I only have to find out how I plurk this post…

  • Hair – Elikatira (elikapeka.tiramisu)
  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

… and I’m wearing a kimono!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I’m not a Valentine’s Day hater, but I do sometimes get tired of the amount of stuff they want to make us buy. Am I really showing my love for my husband by giving him a heart-shaped pillow? Don’t think so… That said, I do enjoy some of the Valentine’s stuff that has been hitting the grid the past few weeks. Second Life just lends itself so well for going all out in red, pink and hearts. So this year I decided to join in.

I’ve never worn a kimono before. I mainly avoid them because I know nothing about them. And really don’t want to… put them on backwards or something. But after spotting this cute heart-print example, I had to give it go. And after reading the accompanying notecard I realised it’s wasn’t actually a kimono, but a Yukata. Just to illustrate that I don’t know anything about kimonos!

But anyway… Happy Valentine’s Day!
