There’s an art to life’s distractions

Sometimes you just don't want to do anything, am I right? You just want to hang out, sit around, distract yourself with looking out at the trees and grass. And you know what? That's TOTALLY okay! You need to do that sometimes!

Style - There's an art to life's distractions


Fri.day released the new Maggie boots for Collabor88 and I squealed in joy when I saw them! The boots themselves are so pretty, but it's the cute cute sock tops that just make them perfect! The sock tops are detachable and can change colors with a HUD.

Coldlogic released some coats recently, and I am so in love with the Anselmo coat! It reminds me of a bomber style jacket, but all soft and pretty. There is an undershirt to wear with it, but it is detachable.

Oh, and can we talk about my cutiecute pose?? A couple of days ago on Plurk, Olaenka of oOo Studio asked for some pose ideas, and since I'm all full of ideas, I threw some pictures at her. Then she surprised me with a little mini pack of poses named after me! Squee! Thank you, Olaenka!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Preparations

My honey has been away for the past few days, but he'll be home soon. I thought I better start getting ready for his return by putting on something pretty. But I don't know... I think he might be okay with just this outfit.

Style - Preparations


Stellar is at My Slink Obsession with the Eva lingerie, and oh, is it pretty! It has appliers for the Slink Physique body [which I am wearing in the pic] but if you don't have the Physique, there is just regular texture layers in the pack. It looks just as good on the regular body, too!

I think to complete my look, I'll need shoes. I have the perfect pair from Fri.day that are out at Uber this month!

Style - Preparations - Shoes


The Eve heels are are great mix of being sexy, fancy, and supremely wearable with a variety of outfits. They come in several colors and are only available at Uber right now.

Time to finish getting ready!

Learning By Osmosis

I was never very studious when in school. My study habits were pretty slim because from the time I was 12 until I left college, my main focus was music. And as much as I wished I could do it, napping with my books and trying to learn by osmosis didn't really work!

The Xiasumi School Festival started this morning and this was honestly not an event that I was aware of until maybe a day ago. But aww! Such cute items! Even if school isn't your thing, you will most likely find something you like. Fri.day is at the festival and I am so here for the Sweat.Shirt! I'm wearing the sports version in this picture, but there is one that is plain as well. And in a little break from shoes and clothes, you can also get the Floor.Pillows by Fri.day at the festival as well. There are a few poses in them, or you can just use them as decor.

See you when the bell rings!

Get It Together

So I'll be the first to admit that November is not my favorite month. In fact, if I could go from October 31st straight to January 2nd, I'd be a happy camper. But sometimes, you just have to pull yourself up and get it together.

Style - Get It Together


I really love the new Gina sweater dresses that Rebel Hope has out at FaMESHed this month! I love a good and cozy sweater dress and this fits the bill nicely. The only thing I would like more is if we could change the color of the belt.

My Vicki boots are also from Rebel Hope for FaMESHed. I changed the color of my boots for this pic so you could see the details a little bit better.

Style - Get It Together - Boots


I think the lacing on the back of these boots is so cool! I'm not usually into pointy toed anything when it comes to shoes [even in SL, I'm a stickler for comfort!], but no one would want to mess with you while wearing these because you could kick them and do some damage!

Happy Sunday!

But Why Did She Ask?

Happy Halloween, dear ones! So did you ever wonder while watching The Wizard Of Oz why Glinda asked Dorothy if she was a good witch or a bad witch like, a minute after saying only bad witches are ugly? Glinda, the queen of shade.

If you haven't done it yet, you need to get your Terror-iffic hunting on! It ends tonight!

Style - But Why Did She Ask - Full

Style - But Why Did She Ask - Closeup


Tea.S is in the hunt and you can find the Wicked Mat! How cute, right?? I chose the one that says "Go Away" but there is a "Welcome" one, too.

Miseria is also in the Terror-iffic hunt and you can find the Demona stilettos. These are so cute! They have little horns on the tops and heel is like a devil's tail!

Remember that Terror-iffic is a pay hunt, so all the prizes are $5L each. But it is WELL worth it for what you get! Just get it done soon!

By the way, if you're in SL tonight and want to go trick or treating with your family [or just on your own because you like candy!], there is a grid-wide Trick or Treat event happening! Many families, including my own, have set candy out for you to take! Some places REALLY went all out with pumpkin patches and haunted houses and all kinds of stuff! Check it out if you're interested!

Be safe out there tonight, tricksters!

I Just Can’t Seem To Shake You, Emily.

One rule I've always had is "DEMO. DEMO. DEMO!!!!" But on occasion, I forget. It never really ends well. Case in point... this absolutely beautiful dress from B.C.C.!

Style - I Just Can't Seem To Shake You, Emily


The Emily Romantic Corset Dress by B.C.C. for The Seasons Story is lovely and so completely my style. I was so excited to wear it while we've been on vacation that in my haste, I didn't demo. Unfortunately, the dress is "standard sized" pretty much in name only. The Small does fit me, but then I noticed something really really wrong with the arms.

That doesn't fit


At first I thought it was my Slink hands because sometimes longer sleeves don't fit quite right over them. But as you can see, my hands stop well before the sleeve starts. I tried moving up to a size Medium, but for some reason, that made the dress completely jam into my shoulders, although the opposite should have been true. I even went up to a size Large, which was not really that much larger than the Small and came with its own set of issues. Then I tried changing my shape, but that didn't really work that well. I sent a notecard to the creator a couple of days ago to ask if maybe I could get a new alpha that goes down a little further on the sleeves, but I don't know how much that's going to fix the problem and I haven't heard anything back anyway.

That all being said, this dress is really really pretty. If you want to buy it, definitely demo it first!

Just A Little Sweet

I'd like to give a special "Hello!" to anyone looking at my blog for the first time via the Old London Docks fashion feed! Welcome! I'm sorry I'm boring! :)

One awesome thing about our Grand Canyon vacation is that we have a bakery just a little ways from the lodge. So when I don't want to make the bigger hike up to the coffee shop, I can pop in here and grab a cupcake. Because really? Hiking in heels is not for the faint of heart.

Style - Just A Little Sweet


I really think the Rayna jumper from Drift for The Liaison Collaborative this month is adorable! It's very simple, but there are HUDs so you can change the color and the fabric of the jumper. I'm wearing it in blue tweed, but you can also wear it in a different color and a cotton fabric.

Ingenue released the Grady heels for Collabor88 this month, and they're just perfect! I should have gotten a better shot of them [sorry, I have vacation brain] but there is a tiny little key hanging off of the button on the strap. So cute! You will need the Slink medium feet for these.

Have a great humpday!

Had To Get Away

Happy Sunday! If you don't follow my personal blog, you might not know that my family and I are on vacation this week! We just arrived here last night, so today I had a chance to explore a bit. And it's a good thing I have new boots to go hiking in.

Fri.day is at Collabor88 this month with the Wendy boots. These are awesome! I have been looking for lace up boots like this for a while, and the fact that they come with a sock top is even better. You don't have to wear the top, but it's super cute. The sock, laces, and eyelets are all color change with a HUD, and you can resize through the HUD as well. For those of you who are into just a little bit of mayhem this Halloween season, there is even a little blood splatter you can put on your boots.

I hope everyone has had a marvelous weekend!

And Then She Returns

What? Two posts in one day? What kind of craziness is this?! But seriously, y'all, I had to do another because there is just so much awesome stuff out there!

Rebel Hope is at The Liaison Collaborative this month with the Lia dress and the Destiny thigh high boots. Sexy!!

Style - And Then She Returns

Short, tight, and showing skin in all the right places, this dress is ridiculously hot. But make sure you wear underpants because I just upskirted myself and hello dolly! The boots are just awesome, too! I adore the zipper detail up the back and the larger zipper pull that goes over the thin heel.

Pairing this look up with the Thalia hair and crown from Truth for the Mystic Realms Faire made me feel like Persephone, queen of the underworld. She goes back to the underworld in the fall, you know.

And speaking of the underworld...

Style - And Then She Returns - Nails & Rings


Stellar made fantastic nail polish and a matching rings set called Hellraiser for My Slink Obsession this month! The rings are all together and fit the casual Slink hands the best, but they are mod so you can make sure that you get the best fit. And the nail polish is a glossy red to black fade that looks great if you have your nails at any length. I just chose the pointed nails to complete my look today.

I promise, last post here today. But more tomorrow!

Checking In

There are SO many things going on right now, y'all! I might need to start posting twice a day just to show it all! [Okay, okay. Let's not get crazy.]

How cool is the Checkout At 11 set by Second Spaces for Collabor88?

Style - Checking In

Style - Checking In - Hutch

Style - Checking In - Guestbook


You THINK it's just a run down hotel set, but then you check the guestbook. Oh my! That's not a hotel I want to stay at!! There are 5 pieces to the set - the counter, the hutch, the guestbook, and 2 luggage trolleys, one with and one without luggage. Total land impact for the set if you use the trolley with the luggage is only 7. ONLY 7!

Trunk or Treat started today and that is where I got my Happy Halloween Garland from Windsong. The garland is free! You really want to check out this event, especially if you are a kid! There are a few gachas, lots of very inexpensive items, and freebies, too!

Happy shopping!
