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.

Sunday Afternoon

Today I’m back to my regularly scheduled lack of colour:

and coffee!

I love crop jackets and this mesh one from coldLogic comes with the stripey top.  Luckily you can wear them separately, having the versatility gives you way better value for money, especially if you like mixing and matching like I do.

I think I need some low-prim clutter for those shelves

I took these photos in the small but beautiful “For Eku” prefab from Scarlet Creative.  I’m in love with this skybox, it’s gorgeously detailed for not too many prims.

the view is beautiful too

It’s suprisingly hard to find good closed jackets in SL but this leather jacket from Exodus is just perfect.  I say this just about every post but it’s one of those things I’ve been looking for  for years.

It does clip into my stomach in a lot of poses though so I guess I either  need to make a new alpha layer or start sucking it in for photos.

For shoes I went for some of my oldest and favouritest boots from Bax:

Today’s post is brought to you by The Warrumville Designers sim and this short trenchcoat from Maitreya:

I hate these shots where I’m just standing there awkwardly but I couldn’t think of a better pose

These came out a bit dark.  Best viewed in the evening I guess.

Future Tense

Today’s photos were taken at Insilico.  Insilico is a beautifully detailed and atmospheric sci fi city spread over several sims.  Great place to explore if your computer can run it smoothly.

pants are SO 20th century

I don’t know if I really pulled off the look I was going for.  The only approriately sci fi thing I own is this pair of cyber eyes from Neurolab.  They glow, the irises rotate and you can change the colours.  Here I am blending in with the neon signs:

I don’t know if the night shots worked out either.  I thought they captured the feel better and definitely show off the eyes better but maybe I needed a middle ground.

…and here’s the movie poster.  See take two because I couldn’t pick one

Pencils

I think I’ve been waiting my whole second life for mesh pencil skirts. I love pencil skirts but Second Life never really did them well before.

This is the Oxford Pencil Skirt from Mon Tissu.  I wasn’t sure what to wear with it for the photo because really what CAN’T you wear with a pencil skirt?  So instead I took lots of photos.  Probably too many.
