Plum in the Snow

Hello,

In the Snow Plum

here’s my try at the 52 Weeks of color challenge, plum edition. I haven’t been able to do the blue and goldenrod weeks and I barely made it this time. But better late than never.

In the Snow Plum 2

It would have been a shame for me to skip that color as it is one i am using fairly often, SL or RL, it is stylish but not sad. It is also the occasion to share with you the new wonderful pants from Leezu. I’ve chosen here the short version as i wanted to wear the new Maitreya shoes and socks aswell but I love those pants so much i will probably use them in another color but with the full version this time.

In the Snow Plum Portrait

This week again Fifty Linden Friday is offering us a gem, it is a haircut from !Lamb Slowly but surely, this store is becoming one of my favorites for hairs. It is in the top 3 for sure. The styles are original with good textures. I prefer the blondes or light browns to the reds or copper for once, which is perfect as it is often the colors offered for Fifty Linden Friday.

What’s Wrong?

Hello,

I know, I am supposed to work on my new shop but who can resist some Fifty Linden Friday shopping?

What's wrong

By the way, i’ve found a location and a house! (sneak peak of the build behind all the packages) I am working on the new shop in Kuu Ipo and should open it this week-end … that is if I don’t shop so much. But frankly, have a look at all the goodies of this week and dare tell me I should skip them and work? I don’t know what to begin with? Well, probably the MIEL scarf as it is an add at The Deck which made me leave my work. Then, shoes from Kookie. The scraf is color change so you can easily match it with the shoes. Coming after are a great sweater from Kookie and a hairstyle from !Lamb. Finaly, to present you all my new purchases, some very fun and totaly appropriate poses from Glitterati. To be honest, these are the items i’ve chosen to showcase as I liked the look that came up together but there are plenty of other goodies not to be missed, including shirts from Artilleri.

What's wrong Portrait

I am wearing the new League skin, Amber. I am not 100% sold, there are things i like, others which annoy me a bit, like the cheekbones being a bit too light and the skin a bit too pink but that is my personnal taste. It is still a great skin and many will love it.

Lazy but Stubborn

Hello,

for today, a few blabla, a little rant and one of my favorite outfits of the moment.

Heather Red take 2

I am working on this post for 2 days. Not because the outfit was hard to get together, not at all, it was actualy easy. First came the jacket with the gilet from Kungler. I was still wearing the Surf Co. tank top from last post which was the right match so i didn’t look further. I am kind of lazy, I have to admit that. I didn’t feel like looking for a new brown skirt so I’ve searched in the depth of my inventory for that Miel Skirt. Then, I wanted to visit !Lamb to see the new hairstyles. Red hair with red jacket is not so great so i went for light brown for a change. While I was there, I’ve received a notecard from Courtisane to tell us about new releases. A quick teleport and some demo’s convinced me these were the boots i needed.

Heather Red take 2 Full

Now the rant. 2 days… After the styling part, I’ve been searching SL for the perfect location. It took me the whole evening and when i’ve finaly found what i wanted, it was way too late and I had to go to bed. Today, pretty happy as I only had to take the pictures and to write the post, i’ve started to try to capture some snapshots… After 3 hours of crashes, some inventory losses (new hair from !Lamb and a necklace from kungler) I was able to take 1 picture, only one, in my studio (Any non studio location is just out of question). It is the one you can see below. As I am more stubborn than lazy, I went on trying. I was not happy with that picture, i don’t like the lighting that much, it is a bit too yellow for me but you seem to like it on flickr. Suddenly and without doing any change to my settings, I was finaly able to take some more pictures, these are the ones you can see at the top of the post. Personnaly, i prefer a whiter lighting but feel free to tell me which one you prefer and why.

I am stubborn so I haven’t dropped taking pictures with shadows yet… but i don’t have that much free time that i can waste 4 hours a day trying to take pictures. I’ll have to decide whether to go on or not.

Busy Saturday

Hello,

Project Donate, Hair Fair and Designers United all opening on the same day! One of these events on its own would already be enough to keep a SLfashionista busy for one week but 3 at the same time…. can you keep up with it? Having visited the 3 events, I can tell they are all more than worth braving the lag.

Busy Saturday 2

I asked myself which one i would have to choose if I had not enough time to visit all of them. According to which criteria is most important to you, here is the one to pick.

Charity:
1. Project Donate for Unicef – at least 50% of each sale is going towards charity
2. Hair Fair for Wigs for kids – some vendors are donating. Though charity is a part of the event, it is not the main goal
3. Designers United – no charity at all (that i know of. Correct me if i am wrong)

Fashion:
1. Designers United: exclusive very original items which won’t be available anymore once the event is down. Wonderful for pictures, not always easy to wear, even in SL. The theme is Narcissus. Expect to see a lot of yellow and white and … mirrors. It covers all fields of fashion, from skin to hair, clothes to poses.
2. Hair Fair: 4 sims full of hair for all tastes but probably available later at the mainstore. Great occasion to discover new designer you don’t know. Only Hair.
3. Project Donate: Wonderful fashion items to get there, some exclusive, others not. A mix of famous designers and new ones with general high quality products. Much more casual than Designers United, it also covers all the fields of fashion. One sim to get a complete new look.

Busy Saturday
