Jeans Shopping

… and a Look of the Day.

Jeans Shopping

I have quite a nice collection of mesh clothing in my inventory. But so far I didn’t have any mesh jeans. With both Maitreya and Mon Tissu having recently released just that, I figured this was the time for some jeans shopping. And for once, I did what I usually never do: try some demos. (Yes, I know you should always try the demos, but sometimes I get lazy ok?)

Anyway, I tried the demos and  the choice was clear: I went with the Maitreya jeans. They do make my legs look skinnier then they normally are, but not too much. The Mon Tissu ones on the other hand had far too much “horseshoe pelvis” going on. Which really was a pity, because they were nicely detailed.

Tea Green

… week 13 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Tea Green

No, it’s not a drink, it’s a color. A pale shade of green to be precise. Actually, exactly the kind of color I would expect when thinking of a nice cup of green tea… okay now I need to go and get some.

But anyway, what am I wearing for this week’s color? I found this jumpsuit by Hucci, buried in the mess that is my inventory. I think it was a group gift at some point. With that I’m wearing a bracelet by Glow Studio, which was a hunt-gift. And a pair of shoes by Enkythings, which I picked up at Fan Limited.

I’m also wearing one of the first rigged-mesh hairstyles by Lamb. Now, I like the style and color of it (especially the color!), but there is a problem with the movement of the mesh.

Instead of bending along with me, it gets all these sharp corners. Now, I won’t complain to much, because to be honest I know nothing about rigged-mesh. So I don’t know if this can even be avoided. But I did feel a bit disappointed.

Going gaga at the gatcha

… at the Starlust Carnival.

Going gaga at the gatcha

Gatcha machines, I think we all love them and loathe them at the same time. I usually manage to stop myself from going completely trigger-happy, unless there’s something cute to be had.

And these rideable carousel cats by Intrigue Co are just that. I managed to collect 8 of the 9 available cats. And almost that same number again in doubles *headdesk*. So if anyone is interested, just poke me inworld.

St. Patrick’s Blue

… week 12 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

St. Patrick’s Blue

St. Patrick’s Blue in a time of year when everything seems to be green. Now, that was seriously surprising!

I finally got this outfit together yesterday. Because when I stumbled into The Secret Store to check out their new handbags, I found they had a nice blue dress out as subscribo gift. Not the perfect shade of blue perhaps, but close enough for me.

I also threw in some jewellery I had picked up at Southpaw. In celebration of St. Patrick and the owner’s birthday, there is a 50% off sale going on this weekend. I only bought jewellery there, but they also sell wands and elven ears.

  • Hair – Lamb (lamb.bellic)
  • Skin – Aura (tyr.rozenblum)
  • Eyes – Poetic Colors (lano.ling)
  • Neko Ears – OTCR (anisa.naumova)

  • Dress – The Secret Store (maylee.oh)
  • Jacket – coldLogic (coldlogic.resident)
  • Jewellery – Southpaw (phedre.rossini)
  • Boots – Elikatira (elikapeka.tiramisu)
  • Pose – Status (gidge.uriza)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

… and my attempt at wearing digi boots.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I don’t normally wear digi boots. Which, by the way,  doesn’t mean I don’t own any. Many times I’ve been looking at paw boots, thinking how cute they looked. But after buying them,  they somehow never looked quite as good on my legs. These cute clover-socked boots are the latest example of this. They are cute and well made, but… I guess I’ll just have to accept that digi boots are not my thing.

Anyway, they do fit the St. Patrick’s Day theme is was going for in this post. I might have overdone it a bit actually. But I thought: if it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing! So here is it, clovers and all.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

Look of the Day

… with some new stuff.

LOTD

I tried to put a look together with some of my latest purchases. And this is what I came up with.

The dress is part of the latest coldLogic release. Those coldLogic-creators make beautiful clothes at a rate that truly makes my head spin! This release contains two dresses and two tops in a load of different colors.

The second new item is my skin. It’s the latest Dutch Touch release, called Esmee. It’s the first skin I’ve ever bought from this brand. I didn’t really like their previous releases, simply because they just didn’t fit my face very well. Esmee seems to fit me a lot better and I was amazed at just how different it made me look. But it’s a look I can definitely get used to!
