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.

Don’t Tell Me I’m Cute When I’m Angry

Because I already know.

Feeling cute enough to punch someone

This whole outfit was basically an excuse to wear this pleated skirt from HOC Industries.  I comes with a HUD for changing the colours and pattern but I ended up with black and grey because that’s what always happens when I try to dress myself without a plan.

I’m determined to get my money’s worth out of this rainbow hair pack I brought on a whim though

This top’s a full perm kit from Meli Imako.  I think Redgrave and a few other places have regular-perm versions.  Honestly I clip through it all over the place.  I tried making my own alpha layer for it but there are a lot of spots that are sometimes exposed and sometimes not.  I still wear it though because I love the design.

Sitting at the makeup table looking totes adorbs.

I took these photos in the Rockstar Princess skybox from Dirty Boxes since it kind of goes with the “cute with attitude” vibe of the outfit.  This skybox is a bit costlier and prim-ier than I like these days but it’s full of cute details and animations.  If there’s one thing I’m a sucker for it’s animations for things you don’t need to do in SL.

Mesh is So Mainstream

So I’m all alternative (read: poor) and wearing no mesh again today:

also, I can't breathe in this

I wear all this makeup so you know I don’t care what you think

I have a bit of a thing for corsets and this one from KaS is probably my favourite, despite the fact that I find it impossible to fit.   It’s got a simple design with great little details (like all the padlocks) and is scripted to change tightness, recolour and stop you from bending in it.  I’m just kind of standing there in these shots because I couldn’t find a sit pose that looked natural in it.

this is me standing respectfully in front of the cross

My whole idea for this outfit had been to pair the corset with a mesh maxi skirt from Jane for a more goth, less punk type look but the skirt cut in to the corset so it didn’t work.   So I ended up going the other way entirely.

I love this mini skirt from Blow-Up.  It’s tiny, like coordinate-your-undies-with-your-outfit tiny but the quality and the details are awesome.  Plus I think it’s cute.

this blue eyeshadow's a bit much, even for me

tell me more!

Sunday Morning

Today’s look is also about another top from the Mesh Around hunt, this one from [nn] designs:

this blog officially features more coffee than pants

Of course this baggy stuff is where mesh clothes come in to their own. You couldn’t pull this off without mesh.  It also came with the cute little belt, which I’m just noticing I didn’t fit properly.

artsy!

These photos were taken in a show home at Scarlet Creative.  I love the style of her homes, just wish I had somewhere to put one.  Or three.

has more mmm

New thing: I’m linking to the marketplace instead of in-world stores.  I figure it’s quick and easy to check the product’s price or whatever from the marketplace and there’s also more likely to be an up to date link to the in world store from there.

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?

Just another regular outfit, featuring the only floral I have in my wardrobe:

The white top is actually a backless dress from Luck Inc.  I had a bit of trouble fitting the breast prim but I love that it has one.

This one’s taken at my place. Yeah we have a pool.
