I wanted this top as soon as I saw it, so I had to run back and buy it last night when I finally decided what I was pairing it with! It gives me -shockingly enough- the feel of the Disco era. So of course I had to throw on the disco tunes, and inevitably head out to the SL club last night!
The top is mesh, and the creator did a fantastic job making it very wearable. You know, sometimes you buy something and it looks good in photos (well…if you take photos), but then it doesn’t really work for regular wear. This would normally be the case with a top like this. But if you find a creator who is working mesh in all the right ways it becomes a smashing hit.
It looks this good, I promise
I will keep this short, since it was just something I’d been wearing for a few days, and I don’t have any real direction for the post. Plus, I just rambled in the last one! =P I do want to mention tho that this image is hardly edited. I fixed a little spot on my leg to smooth it out, but otherwise… credit to the lovely exodus viewer!
So anywayyyyyy… Mesh hair = win, fur vests are a must, and knee-high boots make me happy in the pants.
I thought I’d take a second to point out how great the Exodus viewer has been to me. Most of y’all don’t know that I get grid lines in nearly all of my images. So for about the last 2 weeks or so I’ve been using the Exodus viewer andddd…. Not only do I *never* have issues with grid lines, but I feel the shadows, and the over all clarity and smoothness is just incredible with Edoxus.
That being said, I figured I’d show you a basically unedited image using Exodus. I fixed my ugly knee, and some other edges that didn’t look quite right due to the avatar mesh/pose. But otherwise, this is a straight for the viewer snap, that I’ve simply cropped. That is another one of the pluses with wearing mesh clothing/hair (like this fantastic new do that came out last night) There is so little work I need to do with the images, the hair lays perfectly because it is rigged, and so is my top.
It is that time of year where we reflect on things right? Well, I just renewed my flickr pro account, and I was able to go back and look at some of my old images. While I can try and put the blame on the crappy computer I was working with back then, I have to say… we’ve come a long way SL… the both of us! ;)
Christmas is rapidly approaching, and right behind it is New Year’s Eve, which of course means there are lots of parties to attend! So I thought I would give you a few ideas for all of the festivities. Each of these looks is a bit unique, from formal to super sexy, and all of the dresses come from the same location. Nothing like one stop shopping!
Things I love – The gold dress comes in 2 versions, in case you want a slightly different look, plus the texture is fantastic and totally glitzy! The Blue comes with the jeweled hanging back, and really adds that something perfect to an otherwise more simple dress, I should also point out that while you can’t see it, this dress off shows off the cleavage in a BIG way! =P And finally the Champagne colored gown, its perfection, and you get it in this sculpted version as well as a flexi, both gorgeous.
Just figured I’d share another look I’ve been sporting lately that follows suit with my fall attire. This sweater is probably my favorite atm, and it really does look this good in world, great sleeves and even the waist attachment is brilliant. You know, I don’t know why I don’t wear this hair more, it must be my favorite short style, someone remind me please?
I couldn’t resist using my mesh boots again, I am so happy I bought them in this color. The only downfall is that not everyone can see them, so they can’t enjoy the pretty as much as I do! =P
I think our friendship really started on Plurk, which honestly is where most of my friendships were formed, or at least how I’ve come to know of people. But the first time I actually met Stacie Pryor in world, well, if I remember correctly anyway, was when she volunteered to be a model for a magazine spread I was working on. Little did she know I’d be pairing her with Satan himself….sorry about that girl, really I am. <3 LOL Over the years I don’t think we’ve seen all that much more of each other, I could probably count the times I’ve seen her in SL on one hand. However I do consider her a good friend, we manage to keep up on plurk, and I think she is a rather amazing woman. And no, it isn’t just because she is a redhead, I swear… tho it helps!
I owe this great look to Stacie really, she suggested we blog these great new ponchos, picking which color I wanted was the hardest part! We look amazing don’t we? Yep. And just by pure coincidence we are wearing flats and cuffed pants, I swear!
Clare Loring and I didn’t become friends immediately, I ran into her quite a few times through a mutual friend, but it wasn’t really until maybe 2 years ago (?) that we became close. She is always happy to help me abuse said mutual friend, which is enough reason to love her forever. But I probably would anyway, she is a wonderful friend, and manages not to scream “SHUT UP” when I rant to her every now and again. I’m guessing that is probably because I allow her to return the favor whenever she wants. I’m also hanging onto her because I’m looking forward to a vacation in Spain one day, and I am totally going to crash at her house!! =P
I am wearing yet another amazing new release from Sissy Pessoa, I thought this bright green really suited my makeup and hair choices…hello GORGEOUS hair! Clare came looking lovely, I had nothing to do with it, but I approve!
It was New Year’s Eve 2008, and I was at a party at a friend’s house in SL, at the time I had no idea who Tricky was really, so when he showed up I wasn’t particularly impressed or anything. Everyone was drinking, having a good time, and I think there was a lot of nakedness, I was newer to the group, and shy… OF COURSE, so I struck up a chat with the quiet guy (Tricky). He had to leave abruptly, but promised he would catch up with me, and the rest as they say, is history.
Here we are nearly 3 years later, and he is probably just about my best friend in Second Life, as well as my boss. There is no one I trust more than him, and we generally have the ability to be brutally honest with each other. When I need help, he is the first person I go to, and he ALWAYS makes time for me. That is saying a lot for someone who is buried up to his eyeballs constantly creating new skins. I look up to him quite a bit as well, he is a very good businessman, but still manages to be extremely fair in nearly every situation. We talk all day, everyday usually, and I tease him relentlessly (I am pretty sure it is my job description now), but I’ve no doubt that he knows how insanely important his friendship is to me now. <3
So we spent the day shopping and hanging out, he let me dress him too! He doesn’t need the help mind you, he is one of best dressed men on the grid (imo). I was already dressed, because I had went on a shopping spree for all of Juju’s new releases. SO MUCH GOOD.
Every girl should be so blessed to have a genuinely good guy in her life, like Mainit Hellman! We’ve been friends something like 3 years now, and I know you’ve all seen him a few times on my blog. He is always available when I need someone, and I feel like we can talk for hours about just about anything. When I’ve got a problem he looks to help me find a solution, and I know he is always doing this for all his friends, we’re all pretty fortunate to have him around. He has had a pretty tough year, but he seems to always put a smile on and trudge through it all, so the good he has going on right now seems particularly well deserved.
I went all out for the last blog with Don, so I felt lazy, and I had this new lingerie. Thank goodness Mainit is so agreeable!
Someone who knows what you are being vague about, who knows when you are denying the truth (even to yourself). Someone who stands by you, and sticks up for you when you aren’t the prettiest cookie in the box. Someone who listens to you bitch about the same thing over and over again, until they want to run screaming, yet they sit tight, and give you their ear. Someone who always remembers to IM you, and say hi, because they know you kinda suck at that shit. Someone who gets your jokes, has old stories that you share in common, and teases you about your strange habits. Someone who knows your pain, feels the pain for you, wants to make everything right in your life, just because they love you dearly. I’m lucky to have that sorta friend. <3
I’m wearing a realllllly well made mesh set, tank and skirt, which comes in a whole slew of colors. The skirt sizes were much better fitting then I’ve seen this far, and the top is just adorable, not bulky at all. Sophia Harlow has on some unreleased yummy stuff that you will have to hold your breath for!
