Rosy Medium

The other day I picked up this little dress at a new-to-me store called The Sinners Collective Crossroads. It balances the season-appropriate darker colors with some flowers to remind me that spring will come back. Eventually. I wore it layered over a black turtleneck because its so bloody cold. :D

At Shoetopia G Field had these flowered deck shoes sitting out as a gift! More serendipity. But I have to say my legs are still too cold! And in real life here I sit in my coat shivering. Maybe some soup ...

City Frame of Mind Medium

You know how they say in New York City there is only one color? Black isn't really a color, even though I love wearing it. So I added a patterned monochrome dress underneath. The coat is understated but the collar shape is lovely.

I wanted a pop of color and No. 7 has this nice glossy red lipstick out just now. It's serendipity.

City Frame of Mind Shoes

These fabulous heels are a hint that there might be something hot hidden underneath the monochrome coat. The chain and heel ornaments are so delicate, but at the same time as tough as steel. Try them on and take a close look at the details. Wow.

Steamplay Medium

Hi! Okay I realize that this outfit is more Cosplay than Steampunk, but I like it so just deal with it. :D  ... The oldie system shorts fit reasonably well under this new mesh top from Marshmallows. And the stockings are a couple years old too, but I don't care, because I still love my vintage stuff in my closet.

Steamplay Shoes

Oh my and the shoes. A gratuitous shoe shot just because I can ... Amo, Amas, Amat. If you like Steampunk, these are a must have at Shoetopia, courtesy of Lassitude and Ennui.

And I lurve my new Ohmai cheeky little flying squirrel buddy, and also have to show you a close-up of the fingernail appliers that I got from Bliensen and Maitai. They come with a HUD that changes the background color behind the sweet little cogs. They've left the Genre venue but should be back at the Mainstore soon if they aren't already.

Coraline Medium

I would love to be at Shoetopia right now, but I guess I will wait a couple of days instead of tearing my hair out while I wait for all the awesome shoe magic to download. While I wait why don't I show you this week's outfit from LIV-Glam? Not just the cute little dress, also some new shoes. I could be wrong, but I think these are their first shoes for SLink feet. They are some fairly unassuming pumps with a bit of flare on the heel and opalescent-looking finish. What makes them a sweet wardrobe staple is that each pair of shoes comes with a HUD that changes the shoes to Forty-two different colors! There are four HUDs color-themed for the Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

Coraline Shoes

Shoes: LIV-Glam "Anejo Pump Elementals" ( texture change HUD)
Dress: LIV-Glam "Linger" (only L$49 for now at the Mainstore)
( ... though this dress was for last Secret Wednesday, it was still at this price as of today)

Poses: oopsie I forgot.

Queen for a Day Medium

I would rather only be Queen for a Day. I'm not really fond of rigid ritual or endless cycles of obligatory appearances. One's lipstick must always be flawless, schedule adhered to, and manners strictly orthodox, or one is exposed to heartless criticism. Being perfect is an impossible job. Regarding the jacket, I am sure that the pelt came from some rare lavender Himalayan wildcat.

Queen for a Day Closeup

The crown is pretty, but a headache. Just imagine the hairpins.

Bacon Medium

Why bacon? Because everything is better with bacon, that's why.

Bacon Full

It's been cold lately so I wanted warm colors and texture. Am I wearing too many prints? I don't care. Oo! I need to go make some hot chocolate. I felt cold in this skirt so I dug out some nice sculpted legwarmers I bought a while ago at GField. I'm glad they aren't rigged mesh because I could adjust them for a better fit over my shoes. They are made to go over heels, isn't that awesome?

Lips as Red as Blood

What's the big deal? Anyone can have red lips, if they just buy the right cosmetic.

Lips Closeup

I am so pleased that better quality fantasy wares are taking off in popularity. I mean, what is the point of having a second life if it's just like the first one? So today I am wearing a new mysterious mask from We Love Roleplay, and a lusciously tempting hair comb I selected at Enchantment. It's no wonder Snow White risked her life for something so beautiful.


The new Enchantment event is lovely, and sells furnishings as well as clothes. I had a lot of fun jumping up and down on the dwarfy beds. :D The build is prettified with chocolate sauce and a cherry on top. Lovely for photography. Stop in at my castle if you're in the neighborhood.

Early Snow Medium

I've been caught out in thin clothing by early snow. I guess I'll have to go shop for sweaters and jackets! Well today I am wearing an outfit of a type that I am hoping gets some traction in the stores. It's a hybrid, made of an old-school system shirt with separate sleeves, and a some nice mesh slacks. I like the system shirt because I could add a coat over it and leave off the puff sleeves. The only thing that needs improvement in my opinion is that instead of sculpted sleeves, it should come with mesh sleeves and collars. Unfortunately the makers of mesh have not been making much in the way of separate attachments. That would be such an improvement.

Short Walk Medium

You can still pick up Ison's Assymetrical Jacket for a couple more days at Collabor88 before they change the collection, but after that no doubt it will return to their main store. Out of all the lovely bits from this month's lovely set, this was the most must-must-have for me. I love the unconventional cut. *yum* And dressed warmly, I went back for a second visit to the Winter Moon sim, with its disorderly trees and undergrowth, and I followed the path to the beach.

Short Walk Closeup

The path leads past water and through some lovely ruins. Along the way a few comfortable spots to stop and sit down to enjoy the scene.

New England Closeup

So I had some lovely garments in fall colors tucked away for after the Halloween orange-and-black fest. The TokiDoki oversized sweater has a nice soft knit and I love NuDoLu's owl jewelry gacha. Underneath I have some comfy new chocolate corduroys I picked up at Boom.

New England Mister Boss

I ran across Mr. Boss at the Fishing Dock and he helped me with some of the finer points of drowning worms. He actually looks a lot like Mr. Friedman, who I worked for when I was nineteen years old. I'm glad he's having a nice retirement.

New England Full

Noble New England is abundant in Fall charm, pumpkins, places to eat and drink, a playground, comfy places to sit and relax, I even spotted a horse riding ring ... I had a lovely time. Don't miss!

Inside Out Medium

It's easier to look good than to be good, isn't it?
