High and Waisted

I have a bit of a thing for high waists and I pretty much fell in love with this dress from Villena as soon as I saw it:

You buy different skirt colours and it comes with a colour change HUD for the top.

UPDATE: You can now buy the skirt separately as well if you want.  Which I do.

You’ll Look So Pretty In A Dress

If you’ve read this post and wondered what I meant by hedging my looks this is it.

Photos taken at the park in Cupcake.

This is much more me, courtesy of some of my favourite things.  The jacket’s from Cipher and has been a favourite for years.  I love the design but it’s made from a pile of sculpts and I’d love a nice mesh version.  I don’t think she’s active any more but I can dream.

These stockings are also a few years old from Apple May but I love the texture

The dress is relatively new from Mon Tissu and is gorgeous but it flares out in a weird way when you sit down.  So try not to sit sit unless you want to flash your alpha layer and people.

Not looking at the camera: it’s kind of my thing.

Cherry Blossom

Today I’m breaking out some much-needed colour courtesy of the gorgeous April dress from Celoe and the garden at Kittycat’s Cafe in Cherry Blossom:

Colours!

To be honest I had trouble playing this look straight.  My instinct was to chuck on some spikey jewellery or lace-up boots or punk hair or something.  I decided screw it, I need to stop hedging my looks and girly it the hell up.

I do love this dress although my underarms look a bit weird because I had to set my body fat to zero to fit it.  SL’s getting more realistic all the time!

A better look at the hair and earrings

I thought I’d go all out on the look with these bow earrings.  They’re actually colour-changing hair bows from Truth’s Rayne hair that I re-purposed.  Still not sure if they’re cute or silly but either way it works for me.

Needs more mohawk

It was my birthday

This dress from One Bad Pixel is adorable and comes with matching mesh bra and undies.  Although you need a bigger bum than me to fit them properly.  I’d love it in black or white too but at $550 a pop I’ll just settle for the one.

You think I'm pretty, don't you?

The moustache necklace is my tribute to Movember.  Well, the necklace and of course my sexy moustache.

it's just you and me now

Life is Such a Chore

when it’s boring

This dress is actually a tank top from Garage R. H.  It has a lacy back that I didn’t think to get a photo of but you can have a look at the pic on the marketplace: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/GARAGE-RH-BOXED-Back-lace-tanktop-Black/2252345.

I find eye shadow is a great way to hide the fact that I suck at fitting my lashes:

today’s theme: looking sideways

You know I’m realising half the stuff I wear is from places that aren’t even open anymore and the other half is in every other post which makes doing this a lot less useful:

Maid for This

I’m just going to say it: I love the maid look.  It’s cute as hell and if you look at my other posts you’ll see I have a thing for black and white clothes.  I don’t mean the french-maid-halloween-costume look, I mean the more Japanesey brand of maid:

Maid Air? Flying Maids?  Whatever, I look good in aviators.  Helicopter from Apolon Motors.

I don’t know if there’s a better term for the look, I just know I love this dress from Edelweiss.  Even if you don’t want a maid dress you should go there to see the amazing sim.

I loved the idea of getting photos of me doing all kinds of extreme and badass things in my maid dress but maybe surfing maid, mountain climbing maid and open heart surgery maid will have to come along when I find the time.

Maid service, here to take out the trash.

OK one more, to show off the big bow on the back:

Because what self respecting maid can’t fix the engine on her own Italian sports car?

So Fetch

I got this adorable babydoll from Hucci because my wardrobe needs both more dresses and more colour.  When I put it on my first instinct was to add a leather jacket and boots because honestly I’ll try and punk up anything.

Instead though I thought I’d go out of my comfort zone and take it a different direction:

“Like, omg, Madison TOTALLY told Cindy that Debian had worse package management than CentOS”

Photo taken outside Kitties Lair.

The dress came with an alpha layer that makes your hips invisible which is a godsend if your AO does anything other than stand at attention all day.  Every high waist dress should come with one.

The sky here is courtesy of not having basic shaders.  I actually kind of liked it for this shot though

I think I need to get my shoulders out more often.  I don’t normally do strapless.
